Hugh Ross Quotes

"Innumerable conditions must be exquisitely optimized for the support of humanity and of civilization. Many of them are highly time variable.

Quotes About Runner

"Your progress as a runner is a frustratingly slow process of small gains. Its a matter of inching up your mileage and your pace. Its a matter of learning to celebrate the small gains as if they were Olympic victories. It means paying your dues on the road or the treadmill.

It means making yourself an athlete one workout at a time." - Author: John Bingham

Quotes About Making Money Rap

"The chronicler would abandon any idea of making a detailed report of all the other ills that are afflicting most of the nearly three hundred inmates being kept in this inhumane quarantine, but he could not fail to mention at least two cases of fairly advanced cancer, for the authorities had no humanitarian scruples when rounded up the blind and confining them here, they even stated that the laws once made is the same for everyone and that democracy is incompatible with preferential treatment. As cruel fate would have it, amongst all these inmates there is only one doctor, and an ophthalmologist at that, the last thing we need." - Author: José Saramago

Quotes About The World Becoming Smaller

"Manlius ... took care in his invitations, actively sought to exclude from his circle crude and vulgar men like Caius Valerius. But they were all around; it was Manlius who lived in a dream world, and his bubble of civility was becoming smaller and smaller. Caius Valerius, powerful member of a powerful family, had never even heard of Plato. A hundred, even fifty years before, such an absurdity would have been inconceivable. Now it was surprising if such a man did know anything of philosophy, and even if it was explained, he would not wish to understand." - Author: Iain Pears

Quotes About Agnostic

"...properly a theory about knowledge, not about religion. A theist and a Christian may be an agnostic; an atheist may not be an agnostic. An atheist may deny that there is God, and in this case his atheism is dogmatic and not agnostic. Or he may refuse to acknowledge that there is a God simply on the ground that he perceives no evidence for his existence and finds the arguments which have been advanced in proof of it invalid. In this case his atheism is critical, not agnostic. The atheist may be, and not infrequently is, an agnostic." - Author: Robert Flint
