Eminem Quotes

"To the people I forgot, you werent on my mind for some reason and you probably dont deserve any thanks anyway."

ML Von Franz Quotes

"...rather than ask why something happened (i.e. what caused it), Jung asked: What did it happen for? This same tendency appears in physics: Many modern physicists are now looking more for "connections" in nature than for causal laws (determinism)."

Ferdinand Magellan Quotes

"The church says the earth is flat; but I have seen its shadow on the moon, and I have more confidence even in a shadow than in the church."

Klementyna Tanska Hoffman Quotes

"I feel conscious that I should find no reason to regret abandoning so pleasant a manner of life and such valuable privileges to become a wife of anyone. Beside, marriag is not in my opinion, so exceedingly desirable as some persons think. A womans career is over when she marries. Once married, all is fixed - certainty takes the place of all her pleasant dreams. For her, no more hopes, no more doubts, no more suspense, no more possibility of anything better. She knows what she is and will be until death. For my part, I like to give free scope to my thoughts."

Ben Michaelis Quotes

"Adults play in many of the same ways that kids do: by using our minds eyes to see ourselves in new and different ways, by considering who we are, and imagining who and what we can be."

Jules Michelet Quotes

"He who would confine his thought to present time will not understand present reality."

Quotes About Healing From Death

"I know well that healing comes-if one is brave-from within, through profound resignation to suffering and death, through the surrender of your own will and of your self-love. But that is of no use to me; I love to paint, to see people and things and everything that makes our life-artificial, if you like. Yes, real life would be a different thing, but I do not belong to that category of souls who are ready to live and also at any moment to suffer. I am everything but courageous in sorrow, and everything but patient when I am not feeling well, though I have rather a good deal of patience in keeping to my work." - Author: Vincent van Gogh

Quotes About Thompson

"History is made up of "moral" judgments based on politics. We condemned Lenins acceptance of money from the Germans in 1917 but were discreetly silent while our Colonel William B. Thompson in the same year contributed a million dollars to the anti-Bolsheviks in Russia. As allies of the Soviets in World War II we praised and cheered communist guerrilla tactics when the Russians used them against the Nazis during the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union; we denounce the same tactics when they are used by communist forces in different parts of the world against us. The oppositions means, used against us, are always immoral and our means are always ethical and rooted in the highest of human values." - Author: Saul D. Alinsky

Quotes About First Drafts

"There would seem to be four stages in the composition of a story. First comes the germ of the story, then a period of more or less conscious meditation, then the first draft, and finally the revision, which may be simply ‘pencil work as John OHara calls it — that is, minor changes in wording — or may lead to writing several drafts and what amounts to a new work." - Author: Malcolm Cowley

Quotes About Vines And Branches

"Thats when I hear the scream. So full of fear and pain it ices my blood. And so familiar. I drop the spile, forget where I am or what lies ahead, only know I must reach her, protect her. I run wildly in the direction of the voice, heedless of danger, ripping through vines and branches, through anything that keeps me from reaching her.From reaching my little sister." - Author: Suzanne Collins
