Thomas Munro Quotes

"If a good system of agriculture, unrivaled manufacturing skill, a capacity to produce whatever can contribute to either convenience or luxury, schools established in every village for teaching reading, writing, and arithmetic, the general practice of hospitality and charity amongst each other, and above all, a treatment of the female sex full of confidence, respect, and delicacy, are among the signs which denote a civilized people – then the Hindus are not inferior to the nations of Europe, and if civilization is to become an article of trade between England and India, I am convinced that England will gain by the import cargo."

Quotes About Hospital Safety

"Poor health was not just the result of random acts, bad luck, bad behavior or unfortunate genetics. Deliberate public policy decision about housing, education, parks and streets were the key drivers of racial differences in mortality. Crime kept people off the streets and limited their ability to exercise. The lack of grocery stores limited dietary choices. The lack of primary care doctors and specialists in these communities made chronic disease care more difficult. The degradation and loss of hospital services in these communities affected hospital-based outcomes. … The chronic underfunding of critical health services at Cook County Hospital and other safety-net providers contributed to these poor outcomes as well. The deleterious impact of social structures such as urban poverty and racism on health has been called structural violence." - Author: David A. Ansell

Quotes About Aylmer

"Aylmer had long laid aside in unwilling recognition of the truth—against which all seekers sooner or later stumble—that our great creative Mother, while she amuses us with apparently working in the broadest sunshine, is yet severely careful to keep her own secrets, and, in spite of her pretended openness, shows us nothing but results." - Author: Nathaniel Hawthorne

Quotes About Racism In A Lesson Before Dying

"He opened his mouth. The words were there. He was about to say them when a jolt of terror went through him, the terror of someone who, wandering in a mist, pauses only to realise that they have stopped inches from the edge of a gaping abyss. The way she was looking at him - she could read what was in his eyes, he realised. It must have been written plainly there, like words on the page of a book. There had been no time, no chance, to hide it."Will," she whispered. "Say something, Will."But there was nothing to say. There was only emptiness, as there had been before her. As there would always be.I have lost everything, Will thought. Everything." - Author: Cassandra Clare

Quotes About Doing What You Have To Do For Yourself

"During my afternoon ‘meditations, – which I at least attempt quite regularly now – I have found out ludicrous and terrible things about my own character. Sitting by, watching the rising thoughts to break their necks as they pop up, one learns to know the sort of thoughts that do come. And, will you believe it, one out of every three is a thought of self-admiration: when everything else fails, having had its neck broken, up comes the thought ‘What an admirable fellow I am to have broken their necks! I catch myself posturing before the mirror, so to speak, all day long. I pretend I am carefully thinking out what to say to the next pupil (for his good, of course) and then suddenly realise I am really thinking how frightfully clever Im going to be and how he will admire me. . . . And then when you force yourself to stop it, you admire yourself for doing that. It is like fighting the hydra. . . . There seems to be no end to it. Depth under depth of self-love and self-admiration." - Author: C.S. Lewis

Quotes About Government Mind Control

Governments were single-minded and interested only in increasing their control and any governance that came out of the governments actions were purely coincidental. .... The lowest flunky as well as the most powerful bureaucrat was more interested in protecting his sinecure than in helping the citizens who coughed up tax money to pay the government workers salaries." - Author: Hank Quense

Quotes About Coins And Life

"If Id been a cowboy, it mightve ended well.Somewhere on the ramble, Im sure Id have to sellMy guns along the highway. My coins to the table To make a gamblers double, Id double debts to pay.Probly shrink and slink away, It mightntve ended well.What If Id been a sailor? I think it mightve ended well.From August to MayFor a searat of man drifting through eternal blue, aboard the finest Debris.I mightve called the shanties. From daybreak to storms set, lines stay Taught, over rhythm unbroken.But, oh, theres a schism unspoken, a mighty calling of the lee.An absentminded Pirate, unaccustomed to the sea;To the land, a traitor. I think it mightntve ended well. What mightve worked for me? What mightve ended well?Soldier, to bloody sally forth through hell?Teacher of glorious stories to tell?Man of gold, or stores to sell?Lover to a gentle belle? Maybe a camel;A seashell.What mightntve been a life where it mightntve ended well?" - Author: Dylan Thomas McCall
