Joel Salatin Quotes

"When faith in our freedom gives way to fear of our freedom, silencing the minority view becomes the operative protocol."

Jessica McHugh Quotes

"Sing a song of suspense in which the players die.Four and twenty ravens in an Edgar Allan Pie.When the pie was broken, the ravens couldnt sing.Their throats had been sliced open by Stephen, the new King.The King was in his writing house, stifling a laughWhile his queen was in a tizzy of her bloody Lovecraft.When the dead maid got the garden for her rank as royal whore,Kings shovel made it double and he married nevermore."

Michael Levenson Quotes

"So he was queer, E.M. Forster. It wasnt his middle name (that would be Morgan), but it was his orientation, his romping pleasure, his half-secret, his romantic passion. In the long-suppressed novel Maurice the title character blurts out his truth, Im an unspeakable of the Oscar Wilde sort. It must have felt that way when Forster came of sexual age in the last years of the 19th century: seriously risky and dangerously blurt-able. The public cry had caught Wilde, exposed and arrested him, broken him in prison. He was one face of anxiety to Forster; his mother was another. As long as she lived (and they lived together until she died, when he was 66), he couldnt let her know."

Quotes About Cliche Friendship

"The reason closure is a cliche is that it is used too often, too imprecisely, and doesnt in any case reflect reality. In reality, such closure in broken friendships and much else in life is rarely achieved; only death brings closure and then not always for those still living." - Author: Joseph Epstein

Quotes About Always Being Remembered

"Smokers always waxed poetic about the ritual of it, how a large part of the satisfaction was packing the box and pulling the foil wrapper and plucking an aromatic stick. They claimed they loved the lighting, the ashing, the feeling of being able to hold something between their fingers. That was all well and good, but there was nothing quite like actually smoking it: Leigh loved inhaling. To pull with your lips on that filter and feel the smoke drift across your tongue, down your throat, and directly into your lungs was to be transported momentarily to nirvana. She remembered- every day- how it felt after the first inhale, just as the nicotine was hitting her bloodstream. A few seconds of both tranquility and alertness, together, in exactly the right amounts. Then the slow exhale- forceful enough so that the smoke didnt merely seep from your mouth but not so energetic that it disrupted the moment- would complete the blissful experience." - Author: Lauren Weisberger

Quotes About Motives Of The Heart

"For the movement was without scruples; she rolled towards her goal unconcernedly and deposed the corpses of the drowned in the windings of her course. Her course had many twists and windings; such was the law of her being. And whosoever could not follow her crooked course was washed on to the bank, for such was her law. The motives of the individual did not matter to her. His conscience did not matter to her, neither did she care what went on in his head and his heart. The Party knew only one crime: to swerve from the course laid out; and only one punishment: death. Death was no mystery in the movement; there was nothing exalted about it: it was the logical solution to political divergences" - Author: Koestler Arthur

Quotes About Diver

"Todas las disparidades del mundo, las diversas alas de la paradoja, las dos caras del problema, las preguntas de deshojar la margarita, la concienca con forma de tijera, todas las polaridades, las cosas y sus imágenes y las cosas que no proyectan sombras y, sencillamente, las explosiones cotidianas de una calle, esta cara y aquélla, una casa y un dolor de muelas, explosiones que sólo tienen, en su nombre, letras diferentes, mi aguja todo lo atraviesa, y yo mismo, mis ávidas fantasías, todo lo que ha existido y hoy existe, somos parte de un collar de imcomprensible belleza y falta de sentido." - Author: Leonard Cohen

Quotes About Rosto

"Razum naj bi razširil zaznavanje, da bi vaša zaznavna moč in kompleksnost lahko rasli in ne škodovali. Izkušnje razuma so izkušnje znanja. Znanje je moč in za vsako raven znanja odgovarjate, kako ga uporabljate. Znanje, ki preprosto pride v vas in ga nekako ne predelate in uporabite v korist drugih, ima lahko še kako poguben učinek na vaše telo. Karmične obveznosti, ki jih ustvarjate z naklepno zlorabo z znanja, če zavestno škodujete ali v drugih ustvarjate nasprotja, so večje, kot če to povzročate nevede." - Author: Gary Zukav

Quotes About Climbing Obstacles

"Creating a new theory is not like destroying an old barn and erecting a skyscraper in its place. It is rather like climbing a mountain, gaining new and wider views, discovering unexpected connections between our starting points and its rich environment. But the point from which we started out still exists and can be seen, although it appears smaller and forms a tiny part of our broad view gained by the mastery of the obstacles on our adventurous way up." - Author: Albert Einstein

Quotes About Kinetic

"I try to use my telekinesis to pull Nine towards me, but he doesnt budge. Fives telekinetic grip is too powerful.It all happens so fast.Five plummets down with blade extended. Nine, teeth gritted, unable to move, watches the fatal blow descend.Suddenly Eight appears in front of Nine—hes teleported. "NO!" Nine screams.Fives blade drives right into Eights heart.Five lurches backwards, shocked, as he realizes what hes done. Eights eyes are wide, a spot of blood forming on his chest. He staggers away from Five, towards me, his hands outstretched. He tries to say something, but no words come out. He collapses.I scream as the fresh scar burns across my ankle." - Author: Pittacus Lore
