Eric A Stanley Quotes

"Taking an abolitionist stance does not mean refusing to engage in incremental change, nor does it mean abandoning efforts to improve conditions inside prisons. Rather, abolitionists engage in abolitionist reforms or non-reformist reforms. These are reforms that either directly undermine the prison industrial complex or provide support to prisoners through strategies that weaken, rather than strengthen, the prison system itself. For example, rather than lobbying for bigger prison health budgets to care for elderly prisoners, an abolitionist reform strategy would aim to get elderly prisoners out on compassionate release to obtain healthcare in the community. --S. Lamble"

Tod Worner Quotes

"Evil, let it never be mistaken, is real. But it is inferior. It is parasitic. It is incomplete. The moment we take counsel from it, become overwhelmed by it, or put it on an equal footing with the Good of God, it will have become something entirely more dangerous. It becomes an idol."

Quotes About When You Assume

"In one of the earlier Sherlock Holmes mysteries, Arthur Conan Doyle (not yet a Sir) made an observation on logical deduction. When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth. There is, however, a specific flaw in that maxim. It assumes people can recognize the difference between what is impossible and what they believe is impossible." - Author: Peter Clines

Quotes About Varanasi

Quotes About Assumptions And Perceptions

"The more aware we are of our basic paradigms, maps, or assumptions, and the extent to which we have been influenced by our experience, the more we can take responsibility for those paradigms, examine them, test them against reality, listen to others and be open to their perceptions, thereby getting a larger picture and a far more objective view." - Author: Stephen R.

Quotes About I Will Stand By You

"[On writing more Sherlock Holmes stories.] ‘I dont care whether you do or not, said Bram. ‘But you will, eventually. Hes yours, till death do you part. Did you really think he was dead and gone when you wrote "The Final Problem"? I dont think you did. I think you always knew hed be back. But whenever you take up your pen and continue, heed my advice. Dont bring him here. Dont bring Sherlock Holmes into the electric light. Leave him in the mysterious and romantic flicker of the gas lamp. He wont stand next to this, do you see? The glare would melt him away. He was more the man of our time than Oscar was. Or than we were. Leave him where he belongs, in the last days of our bygone century. Because in a hundred years, no one will care about me. Or you. Or Oscar. We stopped caring about Oscar years ago, and we were his bloody *friends.* No, what theyll remember are the stories. Theyll remember Holmes. And Watson. And Dorian Gray." - Author: Graham Moore

Quotes About Knowing The Truth About Yourself

"Love is stronger than both fear and hope - if you can love the natural beauty around you, the amazing gifts and skills we have, the fact that you are alive to experience life, each moment that you have, and love yourself and those around you just as they are, then there is no need to be owned by fear, or even hope, you just live the best you can, being the truth of that love that you are being, representing the stream of consciousness experiencing itself, always knowing that you will someday return to it again, and flow as part of it infinitely on." - Author: Jay Woodman

Quotes About Withstand Adversity

"What makes a hero? Courage, strength, morality, withstanding adversity? Are these the traits that truly show and create a hero? Is the light truly the source of darkness or vice versa? Is the soul a source of hope or despair? Who are these so called heroes and where do they come from? Are their origins in obscurity or in plain sight?" - Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
