Jonathan Clements Quotes

"In the Modern Age, there are still those who refuse to contradict a single word of the Bible, even though the Bible contradicts itself."

William Voegeli Quotes

"Etymologically, "compassion" means to suffer together. "Together," however, is different from "identically." Compassion is not the same as selflessness, and not really the opposite of selfishness. Rather, it provides a basis for helping other people that is materially disinterested but emotionally self-regarding. As Rousseau wrote in Emile, "When the strength of an expansive soul makes me identify myself with my fellow, and I feel that I am, so to speak, in him, it is in order not to suffer that I do not want him to suffer. I am interested in him for love of myself..." Or, as Jean Bethke Elshtain has said, "Pity is about how deeply I can feel. And in order to feel this way, to experience the rush of my own pious reaction, I need victims the way an addict needs drugs."

Roy H Williams Quotes

"If youre not worried that youre pricing it too cheap, youre not pricing it cheap enough."

Jewelle Gomez Quotes

"For femmes, that evolving feminist thought reacquainted us with something we kind of knew already: men and women might mistake us for "just girls" when they see our makeup and fashions, but we were/are actually guerrilla warriors, fighting undercover in the war to save women from the continuing campaign to make us irrelevant fluff."

Andrew OHagan Quotes

"Long before the arrival of reality TV - before speed cameras, before recording angels on buses and lampposts - I felt I was living in a country that already knew how to watch itself. It was journalism that held the responsibility for seeing who we were and noticing what we did."

Steve Shadrach Quotes

"Jesus spent three decades allowing the Father to prepare Him for three short years of ministry."

Katie Hafner Quotes

"Suddenly life was good, even glamorous. We were poor but didnt know it, or maybe we did know, but we didnt care, because my mother had stopped disappearing into her bedroom. Our apartment building was surrounded by empty lots, which were all that separated us from the ocean. Within a couple of decades, those stretches of undeveloped land – prime coastline real estate –would be built upon, with upscale apartment complexes and million-dollar houses with ocean views. But in 1967, those barren lots were our magnificent private playground. I had a tomboy streak and recruited neighborhood boys onto an ad hoc softball team. Dieter and my mother installed a tetherball pole, which acted as a magnet for kids in the neighborhood. For the first time in years, we were enjoying what felt like a normal, quasi-suburban existence, with us at the center of everything–the popular kids with the endless playground."

Quotes About Aeneid Aeneas

"Up until relatively recently, creating original characters from scratch wasnt a major part of an authors job description. When Virgil wrote The Aeneid, he didnt invent Aeneas; Aeneas was a minor character in Homers Odyssey whose unauthorized further adventures Virgil decided to chronicle. Shakespeare didnt invent Hamlet and King Lear; he plucked them from historical and literary sources. Writers werent the originators of the stories they told; they were just the temporary curators of them. Real creation was something the gods did.All that has changed. Today the way we think of creativity is dominated by Romantic notions of individual genius and originality, and late-capitalist concepts of intellectual property, under which artists are businesspeople whose creations are the commodities they have for sale." - Author: Lev Grossman

Quotes About Reasoning

"All conscious nature has experiences of pleasure and pain. Man alone can deliberately will the repetition of an experience. And repetition, experienced as such, is at the heart, for good and evil, of his faculty of reasoning, and thus makes possible his language, his art, his morality, and indeed his humanity. Yet it is the enemy of life, for repetition is itself the principle, not of life but of mechanism." - Author: Owen Barfield
