Michael Ramsey Quotes

"Reason is an action of the mind; knowledge is a possession of the mind; but faith is an attitude of the person. It means you are prepared to stake yourself on something being so."

Hilary T Smith Quotes

"My head whips back from the impact and my ribs twang like a dropped guitar. The sky spins above me like a penny. My bike has dematerialized, and my iPod is strewn about the intersection in a million glittering pieces. When I try to move, ten different parts of my body light up at once, like someones pressing all the buttons at an anatomy exhibit. The magnolia tree blows me a kiss of perfumed air, and I cant decide if what Im feeling is incredible bliss of excruciating pain. This might just be the greatest moment of my life. Its possible. And if it is, I dont want to waste it lying around in the middle of the road. For a single, golden second I breathe galaxies."

Quotes About Doing It All On Your Own

"Make doing your best a habit, and you will never know not doing your best. If you build roads build them Roman-make them last two thousand years. Dig ditches as if you were taking them to the state fair to win another blue ribbon for best ditches. Its never a question of what you do but how well you do it. Do the best work you can, even if your boss never sees it- what matters it that you see it. Because ultimately youre your own boss. Find work you love to do. Because, the greatest devil of them all is to work just for money. I know more miserable souls who, chasing the almighty dollar through some strange loophole logic, believe that the more money you have the happier youll be...generally the richer they become the more wretched they become." - Author: Carew Papritz

Quotes About Human Progression

"Were all pieces of the same ever-changing puzzle;some connected for mere seconds, some connected for life,some connected through knowledge, some through belief,some connected through wisdom, some through Love, and some connected with no explanation at all. Yet, as spiritual beings having a human experience, were all here for the sensations this reality or illusion has to offer. The best anyone can hope for is the right to be able to Live, Learn, Love then Leave. After that, reap the benefits of their own chosen existence in the hereafter by virtue of simply believing in what they believe. As for here, it took me a while but this progression helped me with my life: "I like myself. I Love myself. I am myself." - Author: Stanley Victor Paskavich

Quotes About Intro

"He was beaten (he knew that); but he was not broken. He saw, once for all, that he stood no chance against a man with a club. He had learned the lesson, and in all his after life he never forgot it. That club was a revelation. It was his introduction to the reign of primitive law, and he met the introduction halfway. The facts of life took on a fiercer aspect; and while he faced that aspect uncowed, he faced it with all the latent cunning of his nature aroused." - Author: Jack London

Quotes About Over Protectiveness

"Her mind moved around and around the subject, moving with a kind of fuzzy firmness. With no coherent thought process, she arrived at a conviction - a habit with the basically insecure; an insecurity whose seeds are invariably planted earlier, in under or over-protectiveness, in a distrust in parental authority which becomes all authority. It can later, with maturity - a flexible concept - be laughed away, dispelled by determined clear thinking. Or it can be encouraged by self-abusive resentment and brooding self-pity. It can grow ever greater until the original authority becomes intolerable, and a change becomes imperative. Not to a radical one in thinking; that would be too troublesome, too painful. The change is simply to authority in another guise which, in time, and under any great stress, must be distrusted and resented even more than the first." - Author: Jim Thompson

Quotes About Heartbreak

Quotes About Where To Go In Life

"How do you get the happy ending? John Irving ought to know. One of my favorite authors, Irving writes these multigenerational epics of fiction that somehow work out in the end. How does he do it? He says, I always begin with the last sentence ; then I work my way backwards, through the plot, to where the story should begin. Thst sounds like a lot of work, especially compared to the fantasy that great writers sit down and just go where the story takes them. Irving lets us know that good stories and happy endings are more intentional than that. Most 20 somethings cant write the last sentence of their lives. But when pressed, they usually can identify things they want in their 30s or 40s or 60s -or things they dont want- and work backward from there. This is how you have your own multigenerational epic with a happy ending. This is how you live your life in real time." - Author: Meg Jay

Quotes About Socialist Government

"In the dynamics of the main family of the story, a rising socialist in Englands postwar government expects his grandparents to be pleased that the local aristocrats garden is commandeered to allow the people to get coal underneath. Instead, the grandparents grieve because the garden represents something more than a resource to be divided. It is a symbol of community and beauty." - Author: Ken Follett

Quotes About Dangers Of Pride

"It was under a solemn consciousness of the dangers from ecclesiastical ambition, the bigotry of spiritual pride, and the intolerance of sects... that is was deemed advisable to exclude from the national government all power to act upon the subject." - Author: Joseph Story
