Quotes About Virginia Plan

"And the peanut butter-eaters on Earth were preparing to conquer the shazzbutter-eaters on the planet in the book by Kilgore Trout. By this time, the Earthlings hadnt just demolished West Virginia and Southeast Asia. They had demolished everything. So they were ready to go pioneering again.They studied the shazzbutter-eaters by means of electronic snooping, and determined that they were too numerous and proud and resourceful ever to allow themselves to be pioneered.So the Earthlings infiltrated the ad agency which had the shazzbutter account, and they buggered the statistics in the ads. They made the average for everything so high that everybody on the planet felt inferior to the majority in very respect.Then the Earthling armored space ships came and discovered the planet. Only token resistance was offered here and there, because the natives felt so below average. And then the pioneering began." - Author: Kurt Vonnegut

Quotes About Valuing Something

"The key to valuing something is to lose it and then realize how rare it was—after which you pray like mad to regain what you foolishly lost. The value of an item often depends upon how hard it is to attain." - Author: Richelle E. Goodrich

Quotes About God Knowing Us

"Always, my only hope and my only strength and my only way to cope has been an utter abandonment to God, knowing that if He doesnt work, if He doesnt move in the midst of us through His Holy Spirit, if He doesnt take my paltry fish and loaves and make it into more than it really is, I do not have a hope of making it. I relinquish my desire to control and yield this moment, this day and hope that He will show up." - Author: Sally Clarkson

Quotes About Uncultivated

"Wonderful nature has a double meaning, which dazzles great minds and blinds uncultivated souls. When man is ignorant, when the desert is filled with visions, the darkness of solitude is added to the darkness of intelligence; hence, in man, the possibilities of perdition" - Author: Victor Hugo

Quotes About Housecleaning

"Those of us who give body and soul to projects that never seem to end- child rearing, housecleaning, gardening- know the value of the occasional closed door. We need our moments of declared truce." - Author: Barbara Kingsolver

Quotes About Belarus

"I went to interview some of these early Jewish colonial zealots—written off in those days as mere fringe elements—and found that they called themselves Gush Emunim or—it sounded just as bad in English—The Bloc of the Faithful. Why not just say Party of God and have done with it? At least they didnt have the nerve to say that they stole other peoples land because their own home in Poland or Belarus had been taken from them. They said they took the land because god had given it to them from time immemorial. In the noisome town of Hebron, where all of life is focused on a supposedly sacred boneyard in a dank local cave, one of the worlds less pretty sights is that of supposed yeshivah students toting submachine guns and humbling the Arab inhabitants. When I asked one of these charmers where he got his legal authority to be a squatter, he flung his hand, index finger outstretched, toward the sky." - Author: Christopher Hitchens

Quotes About Dionysian

"Id love to tearfully absorb you in every way and Id love to play with your hair, read your eyes, feel disarmed in your presence. Id love to experience a seizure of full-silenced tenderness with you and at the same time dwell on your Dionysian idiosyncrasy of red, slightly heated wine, constant passion and chaos; How can I even imprison this desire into mere letters structured together in order to form a coherent meaning? There is no meaning. Darling! Darling! You can flash "meaning" down the toilet if you wish. Still, Id love to share a life full of richness with you: Richness not in terms of events, incidents, facts or experiences; but richness in terms of a colourful, adventurous, enthusiastically unraveling life. Id love to lose all privileges of existence as long as I might have a small chance of walking on water with you." - Author: Katherine Mansfield

Quotes About Pay Attention

"Theres no more jam to be had.""Or bread?" Dougal asked, knowing what the answer would be."Nor bread," Angus said with a smirk.Dougal flicked his hand in the butlers direction. "Then you may go."Anguss smile faded, and he glared at Dougal until Sophia said softly, "Angus, that will be all."The buter scowled but obediently tromped from the room."He loves me," Dougal said simply.Sophias lips twitched. "I doubt that.""No,no,Im certain of it.Hes constantly staring at me and cannot seem to stay away.But the most telling symptom is the way he gets upset when I pay attention to another woman." - Author: Karen Hawkins

Quotes About Sails

"So fine was the morning except for a streak of wind here and there that the sea and sky looked all one fabric, as if sails were stuck high up in the sky, or the clouds had dropped down into the sea." - Author: Virginia Woolf

Quotes About Tacitus

"12. Historians today rely on classics like Thucydides History of the Peloponnesian War, Caesars Gallic War, and Tacituss Histories. The earliest copies we have for these date from 1,300, 900, and 700 years after the original writing, respectively, and there are eight extant copies of the first, ten of the second, and two of the third. In contrast, the earliest copy of Marks gospel is dated at AD 130 (a century after the original writing), and there are 5,000 ancient Greek copies, along with nearly 20,000 Latin and other ancient manuscripts. The sheer volume of ancient manuscripts provides sufficient comparison between copies to provide an accurate reproduction of the original text. Ironically, a number of fashionable scholars attracted to the so-called gnostic gospels as an "alternative Christianity" have far fewer manuscripts, and the original writings cannot be dated any earlier than a century after the canonical Gospels." - Author: Michael S.
