David Ramsay Quotes

"patriotism of many is....a voice and nothing more... A spirit of money-making has eaten up our patriotism. Our morals are more depreciated than our currency."

Eula Biss Quotes

"I felt sick with hatred then for my own people. If you had asked me why I hated them, I might have said that I hated them for being so loud and for being so drunk. But now I believe I hated them for suddenly being my people, not just other people. In the United States, it is very easy for me to forget that the people around me are my people. It is easy, with all our divisions, to think of myself as an outsider in my own country. I have been taught, and I have learned well, I realize now, to think of myself as distinctly different from other white folks - more educated, more articulate, less crude. But in Mexico these distinctions became as meaningless to me as they should have always been."

Quotes About Ignored Texts

"That ought to do it. He stood up and held out his hand to her, but she ignored it, rolling over so that she could sit on the grassy knoll. He stood there awkwardly until she patted the spot on the grass next to her. He hesitated, and Belle finally groaned and slapped her down on the ground with considerable force. Oh, please, she said in a semi-irritated voice. Im not going to bite. John sat down." - Author: Julia Quinn

Quotes About Not Obsessing

"Obedience makes our heart receptive to what God has already done. It doesnt move Him; His heart is always aflame toward us. Generally, this revelation is not taught correctly by well-meaning ministers. The incorrect way that obedience is taught causes people to be overly-introspective, obsessing over their inadequacies and failures. It breeds SELF-ESTEEM issues instead of promoting CHRIST-ESTEEM wholeness. It breeds a destructive DEMAND-CONSCIOUSNESS (law) instead of a liberating SUPPLY-CONSCIOUSNESS (grace)." - Author: Brian Williams

Quotes About Famous Sherry

Quotes About Someone Who Stands Out

"I wish life was like banking, I said. I dont mean its straightforward. Some of its incredibly complicated. But you can understand it in the end, if you try hard enough. Or theres someone, somewhere, who understands it, even if only afterwards, after its too late. The trouble with life, it seems to me, is that it can turn out to be too late and you still havent understood it." - Author: Julian Barnes

Quotes About Mature Love

Quotes About Someone Hurts You

"I consider kissing her right there on the dirty couch, but self-preservation stops me. Once someone hurts you, its harder to relax around them, harder to think of them as safe to love. But it doesnt stop you wanting them. Sometimes I actually think it makes the wanting worse" - Author: Holly Black

Quotes About Standard Deviation

"The value for which P=0.05, or 1 in 20, is 1.96 or nearly 2; it is convenient to take this point as a limit in judging whether a deviation ought to be considered significant or not. Deviations exceeding twice the standard deviation are thus formally regarded as significant. Using this criterion we should be led to follow up a false indication only once in 22 trials, even if the statistics were the only guide available. Small effects will still escape notice if the data are insufficiently numerous to bring them out, but no lowering of the standard of significance would meet this difficulty." - Author: Ronald A.
