Nelsan Ellis Quotes

"Id always dabbled in acting."

Ted Dekker Quotes

"Youre pretty sharp, Clive. Do you believe in God?"Clive smiled. "I dont know, should I?"Actually, approaching the matter from a purely logical perspective, yes. All the evidence points to the existence of a creator. The single greatest body of evidence is the dismal failure of mans desperate attempts to come up with a reasonable alternative, beginning with evolution. Ive always looked at the universe and seen a creator as plainly as most people who look at the ocean see water."

Friedrick Engels Quotes

"Darwin did not know what a bitter satire he wrote on mankind ... when he showed that free competition, the struggle for existence, which the economists celebrate as the highest historical achievement, is the normal state of the animal kingdom. Only conscious organization of social production, in which production and distribution are carried on in a planned way, can lift mankind above the rest of the animal."

Adam Hamilton Quotes

"The Bible calls us to love our neighbors, and to do justice and love kindness, not to indiscriminately kill one another."

John Agyekum Kufuor Quotes

"There has been enough suffering in our country, there has been enough of children whose dreams die before they have a chance to grow and there has been enough of our elders who, having served their nation, are forced into indignity in their old age."

Sidney Knight Quotes

"Dont hide what you have just because people tell you its not normal. I have known normal people…and guess what? They are as boring as hell..."

Muso Kokushi Quotes

"Even if you have not awakened, if you realize that your perceptions and activities are all like dreams and you view them with detachment, not giving rise to grasping and rejecting discrimination, then this is virtually tantamount to awakening from the dream."

Andrew Barrett Quotes

"Far as I know, Legal Aid was invented to help poor people fight wrongs; [the criminals] are abusing the system, and the damned lawyers help them do it. Theyre all sticking two fingers up at them who pay their taxes. And Ill tell you sommat for free, Sir George, them who pays the taxes are eventually going to get fed up of it."

Tim Vivian Quotes

"Abba Marcius said, If you rebuke someone and do it with anger, you have allowed a passion to control you. You have not saved anyone and have destroyed yourself."

Quotes About Obdurate

"I worry about Lily, sluggish as she is. Will she see Carters truths? Will he tell her? God knows she wont hear them. Shes moving too fast to hear anyones music but her own. Shes so set, but I know he could make her settled. I tried to sync their noise into music, but they both pushed back. Too obdurate to be oblong.Silly Lily. How can she resist someone who brings gum and sounds like math?" - Author: Emily McKay

Quotes About Terrible Love

"It didnt make much sense to me then, what Gnut was going through, but after Pila and me had our little twins, and we put a family together, I got an understanding of how terrible love can be. You wish you hated those people, your wife and children, because you know the things the world will do to them, because you have done some of those things yourself. Its crazy-making, yet you cling to them with everything and close your eyes against the rest of it. But still you wake up late at night and lie there listening for the creak and splash of oars, the clank of steel, the sounds of men rowing toward your home." - Author: Wells Tower

Quotes About Rides

"Ella is much younger. Maybe thirty. I dont know. And you certainly cant tell from the way she dresses. Middle of winter she finds a way to show her belly button. And shes got four hundred of these little elastic bands that can only pass for a skirt if you never move your legs. Top that with this unbelievable iridescent red hair and youve got one hot seventeen-year-old. At least thats what she thinks." - Author: Francine Pascal

Quotes About International Food

"Much of our food system depends on our not knowing much about it, beyond the price disclosed by the checkout scanner; cheapness and ignorance are mutually reinforcing. And its a short way from not knowing whos at the other end of your food chain to not caring–to the carelessness of both producers and consumers that characterizes our economy today. Of course, the global economy couldnt very well function without this wall of ignorance and the indifference it breeds. This is why the American food industry and its international counterparts fight to keep their products from telling even the simplest stories–"dolphin safe," "humanely slaughtered," etc.–about how they were produced. The more knowledge people have about the way their food is produced, the more likely it is that their values–and not just "value"–will inform their purchasing decisions." - Author: Michael Pollan

Quotes About Color In The Book Thief

"The hope you feel when you are in love is not necessarily for anything in particular. Love brings something inside you to life. Perhaps it is just the full dimensionality of your own capacity to feel that returns. In this state you think no impediment can be large enough to interrupt your passion. The feeling spills beyond the object of your love to color the whole world. The mood is not unlike the mood of revolutionaries in the first blush of victory, at the dawn of hope. Anything seems possible. And in the event of failure, it will be this taste of possibility that makes disillusion bitter." - Author: Susan Griffin

Quotes About Socratic Method

"At heart, Sussman was a theoretician. In another age, he might have been a Talmudic scholar. He had cultivated a Socratic method, zinging question after question at the reporters: Who moved over from Commerce to CRP with Stans? What about Mitchells secretary? Why wont anybody say when Liddy went to the White House or who worked with him there? Mitchell and Stans both ran the budget committee, right? What does that tell you? Then Sussman would puff on his pipe, a satisfied grin on his face." - Author: Carl Bernstein

Quotes About Art And Life

"I think every work of art is an act of faith, or we wouldnt bother to do it. It is a message in a bottle, a shout in the dark. Its saying, Im here and I believe that you are somewhere and that you will answer if necessary across time, not necessarily in my lifetime." - Author: Jeanette Winterson

Quotes About Choice And Happiness

"Those in the west who dismiss the repressiveness of laws against women in countries like Iran, no matter how benign their intentions, present a condescending view not just of the religion but also of women living in Muslim majority countries, as if the desire for choice and happiness is the monopoly of women in the west." - Author: Azar Nafisi
