"Im 80% done with The Darker Side of Trey : "It was a pitiful truth. That people seemed unwilling to see the abused, even when they were right in front of them, silently screaming for help. I know, because everyone had done it to me, time and again"

Marie Louise Von Franz Quotes

"…a kihasználatlan alkotó erő az egyik legsötétebb romboló erő. Ha valakinek alkotó tehetsége van, de lustaságból vagy hasonló okból nem használja ki, akkor ez a pszichikai erő méreggé válik. Ezért van az, hogy neurózisokat és pszichózisokat ki nem élt magasabb lehetőségként diagnosztizálunk. A neurózis gyakran többlet, nem pedig mínusz, hanem meg nem élt plusz, magasabb lehetőség a tudatosabbá vagy alkotóbbá válásra, amitől viszont az adott ember buta kifogással visszakozik. A magasabb tudatosság felé fejlődés elutasítása tapasztalatunk szerint a lehető legrombolóbb dolog. Többek között arra indítja az illető személyt, hogy mindenki mást is akadályozzon, aki meg akarja próbálni. Akinek ki nem élt alkotóereje van, más emberek kreativitását is igyekszik tönkretenni, és aki a tudatosulás meg nem élt lehetőségét hordja magában, az mindig azon van, hogy mások ilyen irányú kísérleteit is elbizonytalanítsa."

Mark Steyn Quotes

"You cannot wage a sustained ideological assault on your own civilization without grave consequences. We are approaching the end of the Anglo-American moment, and the eclipse of the powers that built the modern world...Cecil Rhodes..said that to be born a British subject was to win first prize in the lottery of life. One the eve of the Great Ward, in his play "Heartbreak House", Bernard Shaw turned the thought around to taunt a ruling class too smug and self-absorbed to see what was coming. "Do you think," he wrote, "the laws of God will be suspended in favor of England because you were born in it?....In our time, to be born a citizen of the United States is to win first prize in the lottery of life, and, as the Britons did, too many Americans assume it will always be so. Do you think the laws of God will be suspended in favor of America because you were born in it? Great convulsions lie ahead, and at the end of it we may be in a post-Anglosphere world."

Jerome E Groopman Quotes

"And so, my beloved Kermit, my dear little Hussein, at the moment America changed forever, your father was wandering an ICBM-denuded watseland, nervously monitoring his radiation level, armed only with a baseball bat, a 10mm pistol, and six rounds of ammunition, in search of a vicious gang of mohawked marauders who were 100 percent bad news and totally had to be dealth with. Trust Daddy on this one." - Author: Tom Bissell

Quotes About Mechanics

"They also knew that there was a string of DNA at the end of each chromosome called a telomere, which shortened a tiny bit each time a cell divided, like time ticking off a clock. As normal cells go through life, their telomeres shorten with each division until theyre almost gone. Then they stop dividing and begin to die. This process correlates with the age of a person: the older we are, the shorter our telomeres, and the fewer times our cells have left to divide before they die. By the early nineties, a scientist at Yale had used HeLa to discover that human cancer cells contain an enzyme called telomerase that rebuilds their telomeres. The presence of telomerase meant cells could keep regenerating their telomeres indefinitely. This explained the mechanics of HeLas immortality: telomerase constantly rewound the ticking clock at the end of Henriettas chromosomes so they never grew old and never died." - Author: Rebecca Skloot

Quotes About Church And State

"The undersigned pointed out that nothing was required of a pastor except that he intimate in church at the dead mans bier his date of birth and date of death and thereafter say some little prayer or other, even if it were only the Lords Prayer; and finally sprinkle the States three spadefuls of earth with the statutory innocent phrases, Earth to earth, etc., as is the custom. Pastor Jón Prímus: Thats not so innocent as it looks. It derives from those scholastics. They were always doing their utmost to falsify Aristotle, though he was quite bad enough already. They tried to feed the fables with yet more fables, such as that the primary elements of matter first disintegrate and then reassemble to resurrect. They lied so fast in the Middle Ages they hadnt even time to hiccup." - Author: Halldór Laxness

Quotes About Liquor Prohibition

"Understand now, Im purely a fiction writer and do not profess to be an earnest student of political science, but I believe strongly that such a law as one prohibiting liquor is foolish, and all the writers, keenly interested in human welfare whom I know, laugh at the prohibition law." - Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald

Quotes About Love For Him In Spanish

"What he felt during his Spanish encounter with left-wing anti-Christianity was similar to his reactions to the anti-Christianity of the right. The "novelty and shock of the Nazis", Auden wrote, and the blitheness with which Hitlers acolytes dismissed Christianity "on the grounds that to love ones neighbor as oneself was a command fit only for effeminate weaklings", pushed him inexorably toward unavoidable questions. "If, as I am convinced, the Nazis are wrong and we are right, what is it that validates our values and invalidates theirs?" The answer to this question, he wrote later, was part of what "brought me back to the church." - Author: Ross Douthat

Quotes About Worldviews

"The theistic philosopher has a tendency to devalue insufficient worldviews, ideologies, and quite often common sense for the greater good, and in such cases, one should not be discouraged when seen as a bad guy.

Quotes About Heart And Soul

"O Lord my God, tell me what you are to me. Say to my soul, I am your salvation. Say it so that I can hear it.

Do not hide your face from me: let me die so that I may see it, for not to see it would be death to me indeed." - Author: Augustine of Hippo
