Lawren Harris Quotes

"The source of our art then is not in the achievements of other artists in other days and lands, although it has learned a great deal from these, our art is founded on a long and growing love and understanding of the North in an ever clearer experience of oneness with the informing spirit of the whole land and a strange brooding sense of Mother Nature fostering a new race and a new age... So the Canadian artist was drawn North."

Jean Lee Latham Quotes

"Behind Nat someone chuckled. Nat turned. Dr. Bentley was looking at him with a twinkle. "Is this a political argument?"Nat shrugged. "No argument at all. Bens got an article there that talks against the President. I said I didnt want to hear it. I said that sort of thing ought to be stopped."To Nats amazement, Dr. Bentley shook his head. "No, Nat. We cant have freedom—unless we have freedom."Nat stiffened. "Does that mean right to tell lies?"Dr. Bentley smiled. "It means the right to have our own opinions. Human problems arent like mathematics, Nat. Every problem doesnt have just one answer; sometimes you get several answers—and you dont know which is the right one."

Quotes About Struggling With Faith

"If the beginning of wisdom is in realizing that one knows nothing, then the beginning of understanding is in realizing that all things exist in accord with a single truth: Large things are made of smaller things. Drops of ink are shaped into letters, letters form words, words form sentences, and sentences combine to express thought. So it is with the growth of plants that spring from seeds, as well as with walls built from many stones. So it is with mankind, as the customs and traditions of our progenitors blend together to form the foundation for our own cities, history, and way of life. Be they dead stone, living flesh, or rolling sea; be they idle times or events of world-shattering proportion, market days or desperate battles, to this law, all things hold: Large things are made from small things. Significance is cumulative--but not always obvious. --Gaius Secondus" - Author: Jim Butcher

Quotes About Culpa

"He said, moreover, "Teach those who are ignorant as many things as possible; society is culpable, in that it does not afford instruction gratis; it is responsible for the night which it produces. This soul is full of shadow; sin is therein committed. The guilty one is not the person who has committed the sin, but the person who has created the shadow."It will be perceived that he had a peculiar manner of his own of judging things: I suspect that he obtained it from the Gospel." - Author: Victor Hugo

Quotes About Marriage Equality

"In articulating all my feelings about marriage equality, I almost dont know where to begin. And perhaps thats part of the problem. Why do we have to explain ourselves when it comes to issues of fairness and equality? Why is common sense not enough?" - Author: Scott Fujita

Quotes About Being Not Good Enough

"Most people of my grandparents generation had an intuitive sense of agricultural basics ... This knowledge has vanished from our culture. We also have largely convinced ourselves it wasnt too important. Consider how many Americans might respond to a proposal that agriculture was to become a mandatory subject in all schools ... A fair number of parents would get hot under the collar to see their kids attention being pulled away from the essentials of grammar, the all-important trigonometry, to make room for down-on-the-farm stuff. The baby boom psyche embraces a powerful presumption that education is a key to moving away from manual labor and dirt--two undeniable ingredients of farming. Its good enough for us that somebody, somewhere, knows food production well enough to serve the rest of us with all we need to eat, each day of our lives." - Author: Barbara Kingsolver

Quotes About Friendly Letter

"[...]he also had a device which looked rather like a largish electronic calculator. This had about a hundred tiny flat press buttons and a screen about four inches square on which any one of a million "pages" could be summoned at a moments notice. It looked insanely complicated, and this was one of the reasons why the snug plastic cover it fitted into had the words Dont Panic printed on it in large friendly letters. The other reason was that this device was in fact that most remarkable of all books ever to come out of the great publishing corporations of Ursa Minor - The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy. The reason why it was published in the form of a micro sub meson electronic component is that if it were printed in normal book form, an interstellar hitch hiker would require several inconveniently large buildings to carry it around in." - Author: Douglas Adams

Quotes About Sunnism

"Protestantism and Catholicism must not be compared to Sunnism and Shiism in the Islamic context as has been done by certain scholars. Sunnism and Shiism both go back to the origins of Islam and the very beginning of Islamic history whereas Protestantism is a later protest against the existing Catholic Church and came into being some fifteen hundred years after the foundation of Christianity." - Author: Seyyed Hossein Nasr
