Rudolf Rocker Quotes

"The peoples owe all political rights and privileges which we enjoy today in greater or lesser measure, not to the good will of their governments, but to their own strength. One need only study the history of the past three hundred years to understand by what relentless struggles every right has had to be wrested inch by inch from the despots."

Susan Napier Quotes

"Finally, when she was shaking so much that he staggered with the violence of her pleasure, he drove her back against the wall and took her as she stood, careless of the clothes that bunched between them, oblivious to everything but the primitive, driving force that had conquered him far more devastatingly than he had conquered her."

Quotes About Logical Ideas

"Anthropological theory assumes that exposure in a treeless situation where all escape upwards was cut off led to the invention of myths. Kafkas ape, dragged into human society, expresses very similar ideas in his Report for an Academy. It is the absence of any way of escape that has forced him to become human himself." - Author: W.G. Sebald

Quotes About Leading On

"It can certainly be misleading to take the attributes of a movement, or the anxieties and contradictions of a moment, and to personalize or objectify them in the figure of one individual. Yet ordinary discourse would be unfeasible without the use of portmanteau terms—like Stalinism, say—just as the most scrupulous insistence on historical forces will often have to concede to the sheer personality of a Napoleon or a Hitler. I thought then, and I think now, that Osama bin Laden was a near-flawless personification of the mentality of a real force: the force of Islamic jihad. And I also thought, and think now, that this force absolutely deserves to be called evil, and that the recent decapitation of its most notorious demagogue and organizer is to be welcomed without reserve. Osama bin Ladens writings and actions constitute a direct negation of human liberty, and vent an undisguised hatred and contempt for life itself." - Author: Christopher Hitchens

Quotes About Good Morning With God

"MAINTAINING DOCTRINAL PURITY IS good, but it is not the whole picture for a New Testament church. The apostles wanted to do much more than simply "hold the fort," as the old gospel song says. They asked God to empower them to move out and impact an entire culture. In too many places where the Bible is being thumped and doctrine is being argued until three in the morning, the Spirit of that doctrine is missing. William Law, an English devotional writer of the early 1700s, wrote, "Read whatever chapter of Scripture you will, and be ever so delighted with it—yet it will leave you as poor, as empty and unchanged as it found you unless it has turned you wholly and solely to the Spirit of God, and brought you into full union with and dependence upon him."1" - Author: Jim Cymbala

Quotes About Courage And Strength Cancer

"Without yoga, my breast cancer experience would have been much more difficult. The trust, courage and strength one develops through the practice of yoga will set anyone up to face lifes most challenging experiences. Ive heard folks say «Oh, I dont do yoga.» Give yoga a chance, and you will find that its so much more than pretzel poses. Yoga is about finding your own balance in our crazy, tempestuous times. Its about standing tall with confidence even when the winds of your world are swirling around you." - Author: Kathryn E. Livingston

Quotes About Repels

"When I see them here, in their rooms, in their offices, about their occupations, I feel an irresistible attraction in it, I would like to be here too and forget the war; but it repels me, it is so narrow, how can that fill a mans life, he ought to smash it to bits; how can they do it, while out at the front the splinters are whining over the shell-holes and the star-shells go up, the wounded are carried back on waterproof sheets and comrades crouch in the trenches. – They are different men here, men I cannot properly understand, whom I envy and despise." - Author: Erich Maria Remarque

Quotes About Yabu

"There was a man of the cloth—Reverend Shibata of the First Baptist Church—who left urging everyone to forgive and forget. There was a man in a shiny brown suit—fry cook Kanda of Yabu Noodle—who left urging Reverend Shibata to give it a rest." - Author: Julie Otsuka
