Quotes About Reasonable Accommodation

"God is the highest good of the reasonable creature. The enjoyment of him is our proper; and is the only happiness with which our souls can be satisfied. To go to heaven, fully to enjoy God, is infinitely better than the most pleasant accommodations here. Better than fathers and mothers, husbands, wives, or children, or the company of any, or all earthly friends. These are but shadows; but the enjoyment of God is the substance. These are but scattered beams; but God is the sun. These are but streams; but God is the fountain. These are but drops, but God is the ocean." - Author: Jonathan Edwards

Quotes About 3 Brunettes

"Not at all. Its why people come. They say its about looking smart, or beautiful, or professional, but its not. Gray-haired ladies try to recapture their former brunette. Brunettes want to go blond. Other women go for colors that dont arise innature. Each group thinks its completely different than the others, but I dont see it that way. Ive watched them looking at themselves in the mirror, and theyre not interested in conforming or rebelling, they just want to walk out of here feeling like themselves again." - Author: Antony John

Quotes About Solutionism

"One of the more positive aspects of our existence in Oceania is that truth is flexible and negotiable, despite attempts by some of us to impose political, religious, and other forms of absolutionism. Versions of truth may be accepted for particular purposes and moments, only to be reversed when circumstances demand other versions; and we often accede to things just to stop being bombarded, and then go ahead and do what we want to do anyway." - Author: Epeli Hauʻofa

Quotes About Manning

"Giving people favors is a time-honored way of gaining loyalty. Pharmaceutical reps do it. The salespeople manning cosmetic counters do it. Lobbyists do it. Men with big crushes on impossibly beautiful women do it. Gifts work on our feelings in a couple of ways: they change the way we experience something, and they push our "reciprocate!" button. When we have the mandate to be objective and an incentive not to be, our biases often win the day-even if we dont think they will. Favors deeply affect our preferences and our loyalties." - Author: Dan Ariely
