[The Sanscrit Language, Whatever Be Its Antiquity, Is Of A Wonderful Structure; More Perfect Than The Greek, More Copious Than The Latin, And More Exquisitely Refined Than Either, Yet Bearing To Both Of Them A Stronger Affinity, Both In The Roots Of Verbs And The Forms Of Grammar, Than Could Possibly Have Been Produced By Accident; So Strong Indeed, That No Philologer Could Examine Them All Three, Without Believing Them To Have Sprung From Some Common Source, Which, Perhaps, No Longer Exists; There Is A Similar Reason, Though Not Quite So Forcible, For Supposing That Both The Gothic And The Celtic, Though Blended With A Very Different Idiom, Had The Same Origin With The Sanscrit; And The Old Persian Might Be Added To The Same Family.]

"We "BLACKS" we have many talents and many great things we can do in life...but we just dont have the ability to try."

Valerie Frankel Quotes

"So now i know. I fear the unknown so deeply that Ide rather repeat the same heart-breaking pattern than face something or someone i cant predict."

Michael Wood Quotes

"Home is what we know we ought to want but cant really take. America is not so much a home for anyone as a universal dream of home, a wish whose attraction depends upon its remaining at the level of a wish. The movies bring the boys back but stop as soon as they get them back; for home, that vaunted, all-American ideal, is a sort of death, and an oblique justification for all the wandering that kept you away from it for so long."

Guess Ill have to eat this."He glanced toward me, giving a pointed look to the two containers I had set beside me. "All of it?" he asked."Maybe if youre nice, Ill share...But considering youve already met your niceness quote for the year, I wouldnt bet on it. And you cant have any sprinkles.""There goes my reason for living.""I thought that was to make me miserable."

Quotes About Internal Combustion Engines

"It is a mistake," he said, " to suppose that the public wants the environment protected or their lives saved and that they will be grateful to any idealist who will fight for such ends. What the public wants is their own individual comfort. We know that well enough from our experience in the environmental crisis of the twentieth century. Once it was well known that cigarettes increased the incidence of lung cancer, the obvious remedy was to stop smoking, but the desired remedy was a cigarette that did not cause cancer. When it became clear that the internal-combustion engine was polluting the atmosphere dangerously, the obvious remedy was to abandon such engines, and the desired remedy was to develop non-polluting engines." - Author: Isaac Asimov

Quotes About Protectiveness

"But her greatest assets were her bound feet, called in Chinese "three-inch golden lilies" (san-tsun-gin-lian). This meant she walked "like a tender young willow shoot in a spring breeze," as Chinese connoisseurs of women traditionally put it. The sight of a woman teetering on bound feet was supposed to have an erotic effect on men, partly because her vulnerability induced a feeling of protectiveness in the onlooker." - Author: Jung Chang

Quotes About Teaching Abroad

"The cross had touched his heart and will. That was all. It had changed his whole being. He is a living illustration of Pauls teaching in this very letter. He is dead with Christ to his old self; he lives with Christ a new life. The gospel can do that. It can and does do so to-day and to us, if we will. Nothing else can; nothing else ever has done it; nothing else ever will. Culture may do much; social reformation may do much; but the radical transformation of the nature is only effected by the "love of God shed abroad in the heart," and by the new life which we receive through our faith in Christ." - Author: Alexander MacLaren

"...en av de mänskliga rättigheterna måste vara den att för en tid fådra sig undan allt som händer och sitta så här vid sidan av skeendet,få vända världen ryggen ett ögonblick medan solen lyser och hjärtat fortsätter att dunka." - Author: Per Anders Fogelström

Quotes About Blame And Fault

"I honestly confess that knowing Jacks mind and character, I am not greatly surprised to find him and a Public School unsuited to one another. In saying that I blame neither the one nor the other. He is simply out of his proper environment, and would possibly wither and decay rather than grow if kept in such surroundings…What is to be done? For a boy like Jacks to spend the next three or four years alone with an old man like Kirk is almost certain to strengthen the very faults that are strongest in his disposition. He will make no acquaintances. He will see few people and he will grow more into a hermit than ever. The position is a difficult one and gives me many anxious hours." - Author: C.S. Lewis

Quotes About Night Time Stars

"As the sun rose over Washington, Langdon looked to the heavens, where the last of the nighttime stars were fading out. He thought about science, about faith, about man. He thought about how every culture, in every country, in every time, had always shared one thing. We all had the Creator. We use different names, different faces, and different prayers, but God was the universal constant for man. God was the symbol we all shared...the symbol of all the mysteries of life that we could not understand. The ancients had praised God as a symbol of our limitless human potential, but that ancient symbol had been lost over time. Until now." - Author: Dan Brown
