August Clearwing Quotes

"When a party in a relationship becomes satisfied with what they have, knowing they can have it whenever they desire, then they take the whole for granted. They fail to desire any more from their partner and the relationship stagnates. Adventure becomes meaningless. Resentment takes the place of excitment. The mystery they fell in love with has been unraveled and holds no more excitment because they is nothing left to discover"

Jonathan Klein Quotes

"We report the news. Fox talks about the news."

A J Jacobs Quotes

"Theres a very passionate pro-chewing movement on the Internet called Chewdiasm. They say that we should be chewing 50 to 100 times per mouthful, which is insane. I tried that. It takes like a day and a half to eat a sandwich. But their basic idea is right. If you chew, youll eat slower and you will get more nutrients."

Henry Hampton Quotes

"We dont have a full black community in Boston. Our people are scattered. Theres a middle class where I live in Highland Park but its not like a piece of Washington or Chicago."

Sebastian Pinera Quotes

"Chile isnt the biggest, richest or most powerful country in the world, but we should dedicate ourselves to transforming it into the best country in the world. We dont have a single minute to lose."

Brian M Barry Quotes

"One simple answer is that there has been a massive rise in the incidence of sanctimony and smugness among the successful that has nothing to do with any change in the underlying reality. Rather, it has been stimulated by politicians who have realized that it is possible to win power by recruiting the most economically successful forty per cent or so of the population in a crusade to roll back the gains made by their fellow citizens in the previous forty years. And how better to rationalize this than to tell people that they deserve the incomes that the market generates?"

Heraclitus Quotes

"Couples are wholes and not wholes, what agrees disagrees, the concordant is discordant. From all things one and from one all things."

Algis Budrys Quotes

"I have to have time to think. Why does time run on while a man thinks?"

Alexander Ireland Quotes

"A book a week I heave a sigh;That Slogans peremptory cryI will not hear, I will not heed.How can They say that I should needThe book They bid me weekly buy?But Slogans change, as days go by;My Psyche listens, fluttering shy,To newer message "Come and ReadA book a week."To read! to read! O wings that flyOer sun-kissed lands, through clouded skyThat bear us on where Great ones lead!I too must follow, so I pleadFor magic wings. Ill read (or try)A book a week!"

F L Lucas Quotes

"Poetry had far better imply things than preach them directly... in the open pulpit her voice grows hoarse and fails."

Quotes About Handling Complaints

"Well, it is true that they did - the Pentagon did impose rules for governing the handling of the Koran in January of 2003, after there had been complaints about the handling of the Koran from detainees, from the International Red Cross." - Author: Michael Isikoff

Quotes About Aramaic

"Abba is not Hebrew, the language of liturgy, but Aramaic, the language of home and everyday life … We need to be wary of the suggestion … that the correct translation of Abba is ‘Daddy. Abba is the intimate word of a family circle where that obedient reverence was at the heart of the relationship, whereas Daddy is the familiar word of a family circle from which all thoughts of reverence and obedience have largely disappeared … The best English translation of Abba is simply ‘Dear Father." - Author: Thomas A. Smail

Quotes About Good Shepherds

"Helen leaned down over her husband and ran her lips lightly across his bare shoulder in good-bye. Maybe, someday, she would find him by the River Styx. There, they could wash all their hateful memories away, and walk into a new life together, a life that didnt have the dirty paw prints of a dozen gods and a dozen kings marring it. Such a beautiful thought.Helen vowed that she would live a hundred lives of hardship for one life—one real life—with Paris. They could be shepherds, just as they had dreamed once when they had met at the great lighthouse long ago. Shed be anything, really, a shopkeeper, or a farmer, whatever, as long as they were allowed to live their lives and each other freely. She dressed quickly, imagining herself tending a shop somewhere by the sea, hoping that someday this dream would come true." - Author: Josephine Angelini

Quotes About Beens

"Above all, there has never been a community that did not cohabit with its dead. But today, socially, the dead are no more. They are deceased. They are ontic has-beens. And with the vanishing of the dead, the most significant distinction between homo and all other primates is gone. When you show me a paleolithic skull, I recognize it as human not because of the cubic measure of the brain or because of the hand tools found in the grave but because of signs of burial. These reveal that this "person" lived a life on the borderline between the seen and the unseen, in the presence of the living and the dead. Neither the dead nor other invisible beings had to show themselves to be considered social realities." - Author: Barbara Duden

Quotes About Patronize

"Did I need medication? Or did I need someone to talk to? Someone, that is, who would do more than charge the going rate for nodding and whip out a prescription pad before the first fifty minutes were up. Was I physiologically depressed? At an innate biochemical disadvantage? Or was reaching for the pad just the way things were done because the doc had been well patronized by the drug reps and had plenty of samples in her file cabinet?" - Author: Norah Vincent

Quotes About Reflexes

"And luckily, therefore the good old days return. The traditional art of driving counts again, and it is all about good tactics, skills and reflexes instead of simple power." - Author: Jacky Ickx

Quotes About Atrair

"Em casa, lia a maior parte do tempo; tentava assim extinguir sob impressões exteriores o que fervilhava constantemente em mim. As únicas expressões exteriores de que dispunha vinham-me da leitura. Elas eram pra mim um grande conforto, naturalmente: comoviam-me, distraíam-me, atormentavam-me; porém um momento chegava em que eu ficava muito fatigado. Sentia necessidade de agir: então, de repente, mergulhava na libertinagem, em uma sórdida libertinagenzinha hipócrita, subterrânea. Minha irritação contínua tornava minhas paixões ardentes, lancinantes. Meus impulsos apaixonados terminavam em crises de nervos, com lágrimas e convulsões. Fora da leitura eu não tinha nenhuma distração. Nada em torno de mim que pudesse me impor um certo respeito e me atrair para si. Uma angústia vaga me submergia; eu experimentava uma sede histérica de contrastes, de oposições, e então me lançava na devassidão." - Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Quotes About Love Hard Work

"People in the U.S. didnt know what taekwondo was. But they saw what the Lopezes were able to do with all the love and support and hard work we put in, and what we accomplished. It makes me feel real lucky to be in a position like that." - Author: Steven Lopez

Quotes About Stars Shakespeare

"Atoms, in short, are very abundant. They are also fantastically durable. Because they are so long lived, atoms really get around. Every atom you possess has almost certainly passed through several stars and been part of millions of organisms on its way to becoming you. We are each so atomically numerous and so vigorously recycled at death that a significant number of our atoms-- up to a billion for each of us, it has been suggested-- probably once belonged to Shakespeare." - Author: Bill Bryson
