[Unruly Beings Are As Unlimited As SpaceThey Cannot Possibly All Be Overcome,But If I Overcome Thoughts Of Anger AloneThis Will Be Equivalent To Vanquishing All Foes.Where Would I Possibly Find Enough LeatherWith Which To Cover The Surface Of The Earth?But (wearing) Leather Just On The Soles Of My ShoesIs Equivalent To Covering The Earth With It.Likewise It Is Not Possible For MeTo Restrain The External Course Of Things;But Should I Restrain This Mind Of MineWhat Would Be The Need To Restrain All Else?]

Quotes About Foreve

"The questions that we have to ask and to answer about that procession during this moment of transition are so important that they may well change the lives of men and women forever. For we have to ask ourselves, here and now, do we wish to join that procession, or dont we? On what terms shall we join that procession? Above all, where is it leading us, the procession of educated men?...Let us never cease from thinking--what is this "civilisation" in which we find ourselves? What are these ceremonies and why should we take part in them? What are these professions and why should we make money out of them? Where in short is it leading us, the procession of the sons of educated men?" - Author: Virginia Woolf

Quotes About Being Real

"Part of this experience involves your being able to say to a person who is dying, "You are loved. You are beautiful. You are like a newborn babe, going into another realm.

Go in peace, put a smile on your face, and release any judgments you hold. Relax, and allow your life to have meaning as you embark on the next phase of your identity." - Author: Barbara Marciniak

Quotes About How Big The World Is

"Even those novelists most commonly deemed "philosophical" have sometimes answered with an emphatic no. Iris Murdoch, the longtime Oxford philosopher and author of some two dozen novels treating highbrow themes like consciousness and morality, argued that philosophy and literature were contrary pursuits. Philosophy calls on the analytical mind to solve conceptual problems in an "austere, unselfish, candid" prose, she said in a BBC interview broadcast in 1978, while literature looks to the imagination to show us something "mysterious, ambiguous, particular" about the world. Any appearance of philosophical ideas in her own novels was an inconsequential reflection of what she happened to know. "If I knew about sailing ships I would put in sailing ships," she said. "And in a way, as a novelist, I would rather know about sailing ships than about philosophy." - Author: Iris Murdoch

Quotes About Killing Your Enemy

"Armies have spent a lot of time and effort training their soldiers not to think of the enemy as human beings. Its so much easier to kill them if you think of them as dangerous animals. The trouble is, war isnt about killing. Its about getting the enemy to stop resisting your will. Like training a dog not to bite. Punishing him leaves you with a beaten dog. Killing him is a permanent solution, but youve got no dog. If you can understand why hes biting and remove the conditions that make him bite, sometimes that can solve the problem as well. The dog isnt dead. He isnt even your enemy." - Author: Orson Scott Card

Quotes About Lying And Stealing

"It was around the summer of 1982 when the drug problem really impacted. It became a lifestyle rather than a recreation. When you start lying and stealing, you cannot con yourself youre in control any more." - Author: Irvine Welsh
