Pierre Joseph Proudhon Quotes

"Why, how can you ask such a question? You are a republican."A republican! Yes; but that word specifies nothing. Res publica; that is, the public thing. Now, whoever is interested in public affairs -- no matter under what form of government -- may call himself a republican. Even kings are republicans."Well! You are a democrat?"No."What! "you would have a monarchy?"No." A Constitutionalist?"God forbid."Then you are an aristocrat?"Not at all!"You want a mixed form of government?"Even less."Then what are you?"I am an anarchist."Oh! I understand you; you speak satirically. This is a hit at the government."By no means. I have just given you my serious and well-considered profession of faith. Although a firm friend of order, I am (in the full force of the term) an anarchist. Listen to me."

Suzanne Elizabeth Anderson Quotes

Quotes About Slowing Down Time

"Enjoy life, even in the most chaotic, hectic moments. Take time to breathe. Take time to consider what is important versus what is rubbish. Those are the times where slowing down is healthiest.

Itll make all the difference in your attitude and therefore, in your situation." - Author: Leigh Hershkovich

Quotes About Liking A Friend

"Liking and Loves for the Sub-Human"Need-love cries to God from our poverty; Gift-love longs to serve, or even to suffer for, God; Appreciative love says: "We give thanks to thee for thy great glory." Need-love says of a woman "I cannot live without her"; Gift-love longs to give her happiness, comfort, protection – if possible, wealth; Appreciative love gazes and holds its breath and is silent, rejoices that such a wonder should exist even if not for him, will not be wholly dejected by losing her, would rather have it so than never to have seen her at all." p.17Friendship"Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art, like the universe itself (for God did not need to create). It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which give value to survival." p.71" - Author: C.S. Lewis
