Henry Campbell Bannerman Quotes

Anne Giardini Quotes

"I used to float along in all of this, like a leaf on a coursing stream, but i am heavier now, less easily moved, more resolute and steadfast. I am no longer in pursuit of happiness. As I stand here at my front door, key in hand, I think it is just possible that happiness, at least for now, today, this hour, may be in pursuit of me."

Kyriacos C Markides Quotes

"There are spiritual laws at work that most people know nothing about. So when others hurt us, our tendency is to strike back because we assume that we must defend ourselves, defend our name, our honor, our career, and so on. In reality we strike back at ourselves. ... What we consider as justifiable defense of our rights may in reality plunge us into a vicious cycle that can undermine our very spiritual foundation. By reacting to aggression with aggression we lose the opportunity to spiritually benefit from the experience. this law also explains why saints, when hit, often would literally turn the other cheek. (Fr. Maximos)"

Victoria Sawyer Quotes

"The vision I see in the mirror is me, who I am, supposedly, but that vision does not express the way my mind works or the way I feel inside. A realization creeps over me, the words tumbling into my head quietly like falling leaves.I.Am.Crazy.This is my new shameful truth. Something changed yesterday. A door has been opened that I can never close again. I touch my reflection, the glass smooth and cold, not really believing that the girl I see is me."

Quotes About Special Things

"His specialty was interrogation. Imagine it, gentlemen. Being strapped to a table so that you are entirely at the mercy of a monster such as this. A person who delights in your pain. A person to whom your screams are more delicious than a lovers whisper. A creature who knows how to keep you alive while he skillfully and meticulously deconstructs those things that define you as human?" - Author: Jonathan Maberry

Quotes About Red Cheeks

"I live in the Managerial Age, in a world of "Admin." The greatest evil is not now done in those sordid "dens of crime" that Dickens loved to paint. It is not done even in concentration camps and labour camps. In those we see its final result. But it is conceived and ordered (moved, seconded, carried, and minuted) in clean, carpeted, warmed and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need to raise their voices. Hence, naturally enough, my symbol for Hell is something like the bureaucracy of a police state or the office of a thoroughly nasty business concern."[From the Preface]" - Author: C.S. Lewis

Quotes About Never Underestimate A Person

"One should never underestimate the power that their own mind has over them. One moment our minds can convince us that we are the lowest of the low, yet at the very next moment our emotional memory would serve to tell us that we have not only climbed the worlds most treacherous peak, we have planted our own personal flag of victory, thus proving we have conquered our own weaknesses. The trick is to deconstruct the tower if lies that we tell ourselves before the tower becomes the largest, most heavy building in the world." - Author: Margaret E. Rise
