[There Is Not A Moment In Which God Does Not Present Himself Under The Cover Of Some Pain To Be Endured, Of Some Consolation To Be Enjoyed, Or Of Some Duty To Be Performed. All That Takes Place Within Us, Around Us, Or Through Us, Contains And Conceals His Divine Action.]

Joelle Charbonneau Quotes

"Almost all the United Commonwealth presidents have been female. It has been argued that women are less aggressive, more maternal, and thus more focused on the well-being of the countrys people. Less focused on politics or power."

Myles Horton Quotes

"I feel that all knowledge should be in the free-trade zone. Your knowledge, my knowledge, everybodys knowledge should be made use of. I think people who refuse to use other peoples knowledge are making a big mistake. Those who refuse to share their knowledge with other people are making a great mistake, because we need it all. I dont have any problem about ideas I got from other people. If I find them useful, Ill just ease them right in and make them my own."

Quotes About Bad Mothering

"This tug-of-war often obscures whats also happening between us. I am your mother, the first mile of your road. Me and all my obvious and hidden limitations. That means that in addition to possibly wrecking you, I have the chance to give to you what was given to me: a decent childhood, more good memories than bad, some values, a sense of tribe, a run at happiness. You cant imagine how seriously I take that - even as I fail you. Mothering you is the first thing of consequence that I have ever done." - Author: Kelly Corrigan

Quotes About Orlando

"Orlando curtseyed; she complied; she flattered the good mans humours as she would not have done had his neat breeches been a womans skirts, and his braided coat a womans satin bodice. Thus, there is much to support the view that it is clothes that wear us and not we them we may make them take the mould of arm or breast, but they mould our hearts, our brains, our tongues to their liking." - Author: Virginia Woolf

Quotes About Pet Cat Loss

"They who have no central purpose in their life fall an easy prey to petty worries, fears, troubles, and self-pityings, all of which are indications of weakness, which lead, just as surely as deliberately planned sins (though by a different route), to failure, unhappiness, and loss, for weakness cannot persist in a power evolving universe." - Author: James Allen

Quotes About Having Drama In Your Life

"And what nags me about this is that the source of my anxiety was exactly what Kierkegaard says the source of anxiety is, and what he praised in direct proportion to the volume any person possesses: possibility. The awareness that life is a series of choices any one of which could be either aggrandizing or disastrous. That this happens to be true I have no trouble signing on to. Any who has lived past the age of ten knows that even piddling actions can wind up having big consequences, and that even when you are super-conscious of your behaviors you cant know how things are going to turn out in the short- or the long-run. Thats the drama of it all. On the one hand, your very existence means you can and will change things in your life and others. On the other hand, you arent God, so everything is always going to be drenched in uncertainty and doubt." - Author: Daniel Smith

Quotes About Belief And Action

"So, you may ask, what is the use of studying the world of imagination where anything is possible and anything can be assumed, where there are no rights or wrongs and all arguments are equally good? One of the most obvious uses, I think, is its encouragement of tolerance. In the imagination our own beliefs are also only possibilities, but we can also see the possibilities in the beliefs of others. Bigots and fanatics seldom have any use for the arts, because theyre so preoccupied with their beliefs and actions that they cant see them as also possibilities. Its possible to go to the other extreme, to be a dilettante so bemused by possibilities that one has no convictions or power to act at all. But such people are much less common than bigots, and in our world much less dangerous." - Author: Northrop Frye

Quotes About Quotes From Historians About Cleopatra

"I do not know of anything in modern poetry as violently hostile to contemporary life as was the poetry of T. S. Eliot, which so perfectly fitted the mood of the young people between the two wars. I also find much more benevolence towards humanity in younger historians than there was in Spengler or in Toynbee. Still, it is not difficult to sense the disgust of the intellectuals at the new prosperous working class, with their eyes glued to the television screen, who have become indifferent to radical ideas." - Author: Dennis Gabor

Quotes About Iq And Intelligence

"By the time the Camerons, along with Lucinda and the necessary servants, arrived in London for Elizabeths debut, Elizabeth had learned all that Mrs. Porter could teach her, and she felt quite capable of meeting the challenges Mrs. Porter described. Actually, other than memorizing the rules of etiquette she was a little baffled over the huge fuss being made. After all, shed learned to dance in the six months she was being prepared for her debut, and shed been conversing since she was three years old, and as closely as she could tell, her only duties as a debutante were to converse politely on trivial subjects only, conceal her intelligence at all costs, and dance." - Author: Judith McNaught

Quotes About Trees And Shade

"The sun sifted through the trees around the platform, and Blake stood proudly in its curtain of light. It would be retreating from him this time. He walked over to his old spot in the shade with victory in his step. Hed been trapped there for so long. He shook his head and returned to the suns rays, amazed at how powerful that simple act made him feel." - Author: Debra Anastasia
