Dev Samudre Quotes

"Last Sunday I was invited by a church to speak on Heaven; and was given only 20 minutes to speak. After 20 minutes I saw people started yawning,talking to each other and some started leaving the church. It was obvious that they got bored after 20 minutes. So in the end I said, " You got bored within 20 minutes to listen about the Heaven where you are going to spend your life after death; then how are you going to sit there in Heaven 24/7 besides your Lord and praise him?"

Quotes About Slowly Losing Your Best Friend

"MY DEAR CHILDREN: I rejoice to see you before me today, happy youth of a sunny and fortunate land. Bear in mind that the wonderful things you learn in your schools are the work of many generations, produced by enthusiastic effort and infinite labor in every country of the world. All this is put into your hands as your inheritance in order that you may receive it, honor it, add to it, and one day faithfully hand it on to your children. Thus do we mortals achieve immortality in the permanent things which we create in common. If you always keep that in mind you will find a meaning in life and work and acquire the right attitude toward other nations and ages." - Author: Albert Einstein

Quotes About Morbid Love

"Dont accuse me of being morbid when Im merely the product of a culture that buries the bones of the ones they love in pretty, manicured flower gardens so they can keep them nearby and go talk to them whenever they feel troubled or depressed. Thats morbid. Not to mention bizarre. Dogs bury bones, too." - Author: Karen Marie Moning

Quotes About Similar Minds

"Dont write your books for people who wont like them. Give yourself wholly to the kind of book you want to write and dont try to please readers who like something different. Otherwise, youll end up with the worst of both worlds. I write lyrical, introspective, experiential books concerned with consciousness and perception. If a reader wants to know what my protagonists insurance policies are, hell be better off curling up with a nice cup of chamomile tea and an actuarial table. Similarly, dont write your books for bad readers. Your books will suffer from bad readers no matter what, so write them for brilliant, big-brained and big-hearted people who will love you for feeding their minds with feasts of beauty." - Author: Paul Harding

Quotes About Responsible Person

"Affairs are like a seventh day. They are a break from all duties and obligations and responsibilities. Im not saying this is right and Im not saying it lightly. This is just how they are. You cant be responsible when youre with your lover. And since you already know youre way out of line, you go the extra distance. You throw yourself in headfirst. You become the very personification of irresponsible. You are way alive. Every detail sings. It would be a great way to live if it werent so ruinous." - Author: Wendy Plump

Quotes About Proliferation

"Hypocrisy, double standards, and "but nots" are the price of universalist pretensions. Democracy is promoted, but not if it brings Islamic fundamentalists to power; nonproliferation is preached for Iran and Iraq, but not for Israel; free trade is the elixir of economic growth, but not for agriculture; human rights are an issue for China, but not with Saudi Arabia; aggression against oil-owning Kuwaitis is massively repulsed, but not against non-oil-owning Bosnians. Double standards in practice are the unavoidable price of universal standards of principle." - Author: Samuel P. Huntington

Quotes About Peaceful Ocean

"Excerpt from "The Long Road from Perdition" for the day:"...Ive always been drawn to the ocean. It is here that I now feel peaceful and can lose my thoughts while immersed in the deafening sounds of waves crashing around me. The spray and mist of the oceans past seem to be a living, breathing yet wounded animal. The fury of the waves never settled and the spew of the foam touched all that dared to sit near it.There is no reason to flinch as the waves spray and crash against the shore. It is a natural progression I have learned to endure. However, it is the rescinding of the waves and fluid release of fury that I struggle to understand and coexist with peacefully. I hope one day to master it." - Author: J.R. Stone

"When sonneteering Wordsworth re-creates the landing of Mary Queen of Scots at the mouth of the Derwent -Dear to the Loves, and to the Graces vowed,The Queen drew back the wimple that she wore- he unveils nothing less than a canvas by Rubens, baroque master of baroque masters; this is the landing of a TRAGIC Marie de Medicis.Yet so receptive was the English ear to sheep-Wordsworths perverse Enough of Art that it is not any of these works of supreme art, these master-sonnets of English literature, that are sold as picture postcards, with the text in lieu of the view, in the Lake District! it is those eternally, infernally sprightly Daffodils." - Author: Brigid Brophy
