"My family life and my ideals, my commitment to the community and to other people - all people - has been improved. I think less about myself and more about my community today."

Maximus The Confessor Quotes

"For indeed, what is more dire than the evils which today afflict the world? What is more terrible for the discerning than the unfolding events? What is more pitiable and frightening for those who endure them? To see a barbarous people of the desert overrunning anothers lands as though they were their own; to see civilization itself being ravaged by wild and untamed beasts whose form alone is human."

Richard Phillips Quotes

"There was a belief after World War I that painting could be an act of civil revolt. I want this exhibition, New Museum, to be an act of civil disobedience. Its not so much about the New Museum on the Bowery, but the idea of challenging museums as projections of cultural authority. Its painting as insurgency."

Kara Martinelli Quotes

"After the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, the United States entered into World War II to protect our way of life and to help liberate those who had fallen under the Axis occupation. The country rallied to produce one of the largest war efforts in history. Young men volunteered to join the Armed Forces, while others were drafted. Women went to work in factories and took military jobs. Everyone collected their used cooking grease and metals to be used for munitions. They rationed gas and groceries. Factories now were producing airplanes, weapons, and military vehicles. They all wanted to do their part. And they did, turning America into a war machine. The nation was in full support to help our boys win the war and come home quickly.Grandpa wanted to do his part too."

Santosh Jha Quotes

"The art is in evolving to such a receptive consciousness, which is aligned to enjoyment and fruition in both ways – expecting and planning the randomizations for ‘specific joys as well as designing joys in ‘generic randomizations. True love lands you in a consciousness, which relishes the joys of this rainbowish dualism best."

Quotes About Ambiguous Life

"She herself is a haunted house. She does not possess herself; her ancestors sometimes come and peer out of the windows of her eyes and that is very frightening. She has the mysterious solitude of ambiguous states; she hovers in a no-mans land between life and death, sleeping and waking." - Author: Angela Carter

Quotes About Standing Up For Something

"Its easy to minimize a persons hurt without understanding the nature of pain. People often like to categorize how much a person should or shouldnt hurt about things. For example, when someone is upset about something, they say, "At least youre not paralyzed, or starving in Africa." While its imperative to be grateful for what we have, I think people often mistaken the nature of pain, when they ‘categorize in this way. The criteria for how much something hurts is not dependent on the thing itself. It is dependent on 2 things:1. The strength of the attachment.2. The level of Divine help.Therefore to minimize the devastation of pain:1. Dont be attached to (dependent on) temporary things.2. Seek Divine help.And dont assign judgement for peoples pain." - Author: Yasmin Mogahed

Quotes About Bend

"Something her father always used to say popped into her head. God hates a coward, Ruby. She tossed her hair over her shoulder and met his stare head-on. "Since you bought me an alcoholic beverage and Im planning on kissing you, then yes. Id say this qualifies as a date." His gaze dropped to her mouth, and she couldnt stop herself from biting her bottom lip. If the music wasnt so loud, she knew she would have heard him groan. "Sorry. I cant kiss you." Heat suffusing her face, Ruby pushed her chair back and stood. "No kissing, no fun, no gambling. Im starting to forget why I found you interesting." Before she could blink, he moved to stand behind her. On either side of her, he laid his hands on the table, effectively blocking her escape. When he spoke, she felt his every word against her neck. "I just watched you bend over a pool table in those ridiculously tight jeans. Over. And over. You think I could stop at kissing?" - Author: Tessa Bailey

Quotes About Maths And Life

"Jack stares at me blankly. ‘A what? he asks. I choke back the laugh. ‘A boy. You know? A Y-chromosome holder? You dont seem to notice them as much as you do the X-carriers. ‘What are you talking about? Jack asks, ‘A boy? Shes just a kid. I hesitate, wondering how Jack is only just doing the maths on this one now. ‘Shes seventeen. Shes not a kid anymore. Jack looks like hes about to go all Incredible Hulk and burst out of his clothes before rampaging through the bar. He jumps off the stool. ‘If any boy ever lays a finger on my sister, Im going to kill him, he says. Again I stare at him in silence, thinking of all the girls Jack has laid fingers and much more of his anatomy on besides. Poor Lila. If she ever wants to have a shot at a normal life, as in one that doesnt require a vow of celibacy, she needs to stay in London." - Author: Sarah Alderson
