Steven Redhead Quotes

"Life is indeed a gamble, the ultimate game of chance, based purely upon having the ability to make the right choices at the right time. You never win or lose in life if you realise it is all just for the experience. Learn to create your own destiny, dont wait to see what fate throws your way."

L Michael White Quotes

"So far as we know, Jesus did not write anything, nor did anyone who had personal knowledge of him. There is no archaeological evidence of his existence. There are no contemporaneous accounts of his life or death: no eyewitness accounts, nor any other kind of first-hand record. All the accounts of Jesus come from decades or centuries later; the gospels themselves all come from later times, though they may contain earlier sources or oral traditions. The earliest writings that survive are the letters of Paul of Tarsus, written 20-30 years after the dates given for Jesuss death. Paul was not a companion of Jesus, nor does he ever claim to have seen Jesus before his death."

Harlan Stone Quotes

"Democracy cannot survive without the guidance of a creative minority."

Abdullah Ibrahim Quotes

Christine Fonseca Quotes

"Dreams are funny things"..."Things seem so real when they are happening, only to fade instantly when the brain realizes they are mere images, shadows of the truth, but not part of it."

Windhy Puspitadewi Quotes

Quotes About Lily Pads

"Andrew just shrugged, and I fiddled with the napkin in my lap while glancing idly around the restaurant. The obligatory mirrors hung on the walls, and there was one of those fountains with fake lily pads in the entryway. The restaurant was also lit like a mine shaft. Ive never understood why dim lighting is supposed to be so romantic. Night vision belongs into a Paris Hilton sex tape - not in a restaurant that could potentially poison me with peanut sauce." - Author: Alicia Thompson

Quotes About Christian Idolatry

"Christian worship of Jesus is an idolatry much worse than the Israelites worship of the golden calf, for the Christians err in saying something holy entered into a woman in that stinking place…full of faeces and urine, which emits discharge and menstrual blood and serves as a receptacle for mens semen." - Author: Geraldine Brooks

Quotes About Extramarital Affairs

"As I see it the world is undoubtedly in need of a new religion, and that religion must be founded on humanist principles. When I say religion, I do not mean merely a theology involving belief in a supernatural god or gods; nor do I mean merely a system of ethics, however exalted; nor only scientific knowledge, however extensive; nor just a practical social morality, however admirable or efficient. I mean an organized system of ideas and emotions which relate man to his destiny, beyond and above the practical affairs of every day, transcending the present and the existing systems of law and social structure. The prerequisite today is that any such religion shall appeal potentially to all mankind; and that its intellectual and rational sides shall not be incompatible with scientific knowledge but on the contrary based on it." - Author: Julian Huxley

Quotes About Creacion

"La decadencia del catolicismo europeo coincide con su apogeo hispanoamericano: se extiende en tierras nuevas en el momento en que ha dejado de ser creador. Ofrece una filosofía hecha y una fe petrificada, de modo que la originalidad de los nuevos creyentes no encuentra ocasión de manifestarse. Su adhesión es pasiva. El fervor y la profundidad de la religiosidad mexicana contrastan con la relativa pobreza de sus creaciones. No poseemos una gran poesía religiosa, como no tenemos una filosofía original, ni un solo místico o reformador de importancia. […] el catolicismo ofrece un refugio a los descendientes de aquellos que habían visto la destrucción de sus templos y manuscritos y la supresión de las formas superiores de su cultura pero, por razón misma de su decadencia europea, les niega toda posibilidad de expresar su singularidad." - Author: Octavio Paz
