Douglas Alexander Quotes

"Theres no doubt that what has emerged in the years after 9/11, unlike the situation in Britain, there were practices sanctioned in the U.S. that fall far below the standard of conduct that should have taken place. It is for the American system of government, in all of its branches, to address that. It is not for a British politician."

Quotes About Living In The Past

"Is it possible to make a living by simply watching light? Monet did. Vermeer did. I believe Vincent did too. They painted light in order to witness the dance between revelation and concealment, exposure and darkness. Perhaps this is what I desire most, to sit and watch the shifting shadows cross the cliff face of sandstone or simply to walk parallel with a path of liquid light called the Colorado River. In the canyon country of southern Utah, these acts of attention are not merely the pastimes of artists, but daily work, work that matters to the whole community.This living would include becoming a caretaker of silence, a connoisseur of stillness, a listener of wind where each dialect is not only heard but understood." - Author: Terry Tempest Williams

Quotes About Coriolanus

"When I was a boy, my grandfather taught me the list of kings: Romulus, Numa Pompilius, Tullus Hostilius, Ancus Marcius, Tarquinius the Elder, Servius Tullius. Tarquinius the Proud was to be the last, the very last, cast out and replaced forever by something called a republic. A mockery! A mistake! An experiment that failed! Today is the republics final day. Tomorrow, men will shout in the Forum, ‘All hail King Coriolanus!" - Author: Steven Saylor

Quotes About Catholicity

"Because of this Christian materialism, a catholic postmodernism (or postmodern catholicity) affirms sacramentality on two levels. On the one hand, it affirms a general sacramentality: the whole world has potential to function as a window to God and a means of grace from God because God himself affirms materiality as a good thing. We see this not only in creation itself but also in the reaffirmation of it in the incarnation, in which God is happy to inhabit the goodness of flesh. Furthermore, materiality receives an eschatological affirmation in our hope for the resurrection of the body. Even the future kingdom will be a material environment of sacramentality. On the other hand, when an incarnational ontology and anthropology are linked with our earlier affirmation of time and tradition, a catholic postmodernism also affirms a special sacramentality - a special presence and means of grace in the sacraments of baptism and Eucharist." - Author: James K.A. Smith

Quotes About Estupidez

"Eis a sublime estupidez do mundo; quando nossa fortuna está abalada - muitas vezes pelos excessos de nossos próprios atos - culpamos o sol, a lua e as estrelas pelos nossos desastres; como se fôssemos canalhas por necessidade, idiotas por influência celeste; escroques, ladrões e traidores por comando do zodíaco; bêbados, mentirosos e adúlteros por forçada obediência a determinações dos planetas; como se toda a perversidade que há em nós fosse pura instigação divina. É a admirável desculpa do homem devasso - responsabiliza uma estrela por sua devassidão. Meu pai se entendeu com minha mãe sob a Cauda do Dragão e vim ao mundo sob a Ursa Maior; portanto devo ser lascivo e perverso. Bah! Eu seria o que eu sou, mesmo que a estrela mais virginal do mundo tivesse iluminado a minha bastardia." - Author: William Shakespeare
