Elisabeth Eaves Quotes

"I know its not strictly sex that accounts for my straying the motive usually attributed to men. I think its just too tempting to have two lives rather than one. Some people think that too much travel begets infidelity: Separation and opportunity test the bonds of love. I think its more likely that people who hate to make choices to settle on one thing or another are attracted to travel. Travel doesnt beget a double life. The appeal of the double life begets travel."

Quotes About Short Replies

"In any age, there is no shortage of people willing to embark on a hazardous adventure. Columbus and Magellan filled eight ships between them for voyages into the void. One hundred and fifty years ago, the possibilities offered by missionary service were limitless and first-rate. Later, Scott and Shackleton turned away droves after filling their crews for their desperate Antarctic voyages. In 1959 ... sailor H.W. Tilman, looking for a crew for a voyage in an old wooden yacht to the Southern Ocean, ran this ad in the London Times: "Hand [man] wanted for long voyage in small boat.

Quotes About Modernist

"Postmodernisms specifically academic appeal comes from its being another in the sequence of all-purpose "unmasking" strategies that offer a way to criticize the intellectual efforts of others not by engaging with them on the ground, but by diagnosing them from a superior vantage point and charging them with inadequate self-awareness. Logical positivism and Marxism were used by academics in this way, and postmodernist relativism is a natural successor in the role." - Author: Thomas Nagel

Quotes About Injustice And Oppression

"Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events. It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance." - Author: Robert F. Kennedy

Quotes About Countries Funny

"Bastion looked at the book.I wonder, he said to himself, whats in a book while its closed. Oh, I know its full of letters printed on paper, but all the same, something must be happening, because as soon as I open it, theres a whole story with people I dont know yet and all kinds of adventures, deeds and battles. And sometimes there are storms at sea, or it takes you to strange cities and countries. All those things are somehow shut in a book. Of course you have to read it to find out. But its already there, thats the funny thing. I just wish I knew how it could be.Suddenly an almost festive mood came over him.He settled himself down, picked up the book, opened it to the first page, and began to read..." - Author: Michael Ende
