No One Can Admonish Them Successfully: Not A Peer, Not A Local Superior, Not Even The Pope Himself. They Know - And That Is The End Of The Matter. Filled As They Are With Their Own Views, The Arrogant Lack The Capacity To See Another View.]

Ruth Hubbard Quotes

"Every theory is a self-fulfilling prophecy that orders experience into the framework it provides."

Shon Hopwood Quotes

"A computer search would have given me a list of pertinent cases, but without that I had to read everything. That is harder by far, but you end up learning a lot more. I was forced to remember cases because making copies of everything was too expensive. Keeping cases in your head is good, too, because cases are like puzzle pieces floating around in your mind, and sometimes, in moments of creativity, they fall into place and form a picture. If they were words on a screen that you could pull up anytime you wished, that phenomenon wouldnt happen as easily."

Jennie Bates Bozic Quotes

"I have tried to tell him in a dozen different ways that I am only six inches tall. Ive told him I am as tall as his heart, that he could hold all of me in his hand, that I am shorter than I appear. Every time, hes acted as though Im saying something romantic or poetic."

Anne Lamott Quotes

"It was never meant to be permanent. You must have known the tide would come back in."

Paolo Coehlo Quotes

"The boy felt jealous of the freedom of the wind, and saw that he could have the same freedom. There was nothing to hold him back except himself."

Jehane Noujaim Quotes

"When I hear the words activist filmmaking, I think of somebody whos an activist, who wants to prove a particular point."

Jamie Iredell Quotes

"Mankind were intended to be happy... that government being only the means of securing freedom and happiness to the people, whenever it deviates from this end, and their freedom and happiness are in great danger of being irrevocably lost, the government is no longer entitled to their allegiance. ("The Principles of an American Whig"-1777)"

Helen Humphreys Quotes

"She hasnt had a book to read lately and that feeling of story rushes through her like a swoon."

Gail Collins Quotes

"Whenever you bring up womens internal workings, guys want to change the subject. Unless, of course, theyre trying to change the laws."

JW Lord Quotes

"The only truly logical explanation that gives credence to the fact that information does not come from non-information, is that some outside force – some uncaused cause – existed before us and formed us in His image. If there is a creation there must be a creator."

Quotes About Trouble In Relationships

"We have bigger houses but smaller families; more conveniences, but less time; We have more degrees, but less sense; more knowledge, but less judgment; more experts, but more problems; more medicines, but less healthiness; Weve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor. Weve built more computers to hold more information to produce more copies than ever, but have less communications; We have become long on quantity, but short on quality. These times are times of fast foods; but slow digestion; Tall man but short character; Steep profits but shallow relationships. It is time when there is much in the window, but nothing in the room.--authorship unknownfrom Sacred Economics" - Author: Charles Eisenstein

Quotes About Disney Mickey

"Perhaps it was that I wanted to see what I had learned, what I had read, what I had imagined, that I would never be able to see the city of London without seeing it through the overarching scrim of every description of it I had read before. When I turn the corner into a small, quiet, leafy square, am I really seeing it fresh, or am I both looking and remembering? [...]This is both the beauty and excitement of London, and its cross to bear, too. There is a tendency for visitors to turn the place into a theme park, the Disney World of social class, innate dignity, crooked streets, and grand houses, with a cavalcade of monarchs as varied and cartoony as Mickey Mouse, Snow White, and, at least in the opinion of various Briths broadhseets, Goofy.They come, not to see what London is, or even what it was, but to confirm a kind of picture-postcard view of both, all red telephone kiosks and fog-wreathed alleyways." - Author: Anna Quindlen

Quotes About Movie Underdogs

"Yet this wasnt like sports, let alone sports movies. The roles werent fixed, nor the meaning of the scaffolding. It didnt have to be this way. They might have, for instance, all felt stronger. They might have felt stronger and come together. They might have decided that, rather than now, as theyd been mistaken before: that if their enemies cheered the same damage as they, then they werent their enemies after all. They might have concluded their interests were mutual, that some other force, earlier—some other enemy—had confused and divided them, and that all those who cheered were thus allies unmasked.Instead they felt bitter, tricked by each other, last-strawed underdogs, suckers on the mend. Their enmity swelled and they fought even harder." - Author: Adam Levin
