[Twas Such A Useless Thing. And So Unnecessary. Many Had Suffered For The Actions Of A Few. Wasn't That Always The Way Of Things? The Collective Suffered For The Actions Of An Inept, Ineffectual Leader.]

Quotes About Profession And Passion

"And always, everywhere, there would be the yelling or quietly authoritative hypnotists; and in the train of the ruling suggestion givers, always everywhere, the tribes of buffoons and hucksters, the professional liars, the purveyors of entertaining irrelevances. Conditioned from the cradle, unceasingly distracted, mesmerized systematically, their uniformed victims would go on obediently marching and countermarching, go on, always and everywhere, killing and dying with the perfect docility of trained poodles. And yet in spite of the entirely justified refusal to take yes for an answer, the fact remained and would remain always, remain everywhere — the fact that there was this capacity even in a paranoiac for intelligence, even in a devil worshipper for love; the fact that the ground of all being could be totally manifest in a flowering shrub, a human face; the fact that there was a light and that this light was also compassion" - Author: Aldous Huxley

Quotes About Inability

"Though not necessarily aware of when we feel purpose and meaning, we are nearly always aware of the sickening feeling when we dont possess them. This isnt an intellectual misapprehension; it is a gut sense of disorientation and a loss of personal direction. Rarely are brute mental effort and self-help pep talks able to rekindle the missing feeling. For most of us, we simply wait patiently, knowing from past experience that the feeling will return in its own sweet time . . . Of particular interest is [Tolstoys] conclusion as to the inability of science and reason to provide a personal sense of meaning." - Author: Robert A. Burton

Quotes About Swimming In A Lake

"His training had a fatal flaw: he cared. He asked me what I wanted to eat for dinner. He knew I liked green, and if he had a choice between a blue sweater and a green one, hed buy the green one for me even if it cost more. I like swimming, and when we traveled, he made it a point to lay our route so it would go past a lake or a river. He let me speak my mind. My opinion mattered. I was a person to him and I was important. I saw him treat others as if they were important. For all of his supposed indifference, there is a town in Oklahoma that worships him and a little village in Guatemala that put a wooden statue of him at the gates to protect them from evil spirits. He helped people, when he thought it was right." - Author: Ilona Andrews

Quotes About Pointing

"The study of law can be disappointing at times, a matter of applying narrow rules and arcane procedure to an uncooperative reality; a sort of glorified accounting that serves to regulate the affairs of those who have power--and that all too often seeks to explain, to those who do not, the ultimate wisdom and justness of their condition.But thats not all the law is. The law is also memory; the law also records a long-running conversation, a nation arguing with its conscience." - Author: Barack Obama

Quotes About Illusions In Love

"The Kiss: Intimate with YouMy taste, my palettes, and honey suckles are sweet.You give me creative illusions.Its the realism of you.Sometimes rough. Yet, you evade my every smoothest thought.From head to toe, I see you in black and white. Your curves, your lines, oh you give me great endeavors. You peek my interest. My volume rises and nudity springs within the two sexes, and oh what the eye perceives. The contour, the edge, and flowing rhythmic lines, and look at that pretty smooth silky skin. We live rendering our thoughts of each other.I prefer the legs down, the ring of bone, and the tip of your foot down in perspective. You are ideal to me.I press in with my smoothing stick, oh what imagination.Landmarks! Mark that spot.The kiss of figure drawing.I love you, HB, 4B, and 6B" - Author: Edna Stewart
