Vilem Flusser Quotes

"The task of a philosophy of photography is to reflect upon this possibility of freedom - and thus its significance - in a world dominated by apparatuses; to reflect upon the way in which, despite everything, it is possible for human beings to give significance to their lives in the face of the chance necessity of death. Such a philosophy is necessary because it is the only form of revolution left open to us."

Quotes About Spending Cuts

"No politician or party favours waste and inefficiency, and every government tries to reduce both--but tax cuts on the promise of ending the gravy train almost never find enough gravy. Of course efficiency matters, waste must be attacked, and of course it matters how both taxes and spending are organized, but despite the highly publicized incidents of misspending that seem to dominate the pages of our mainstream media and disproportionately shape our perceptions, the numbers about waste never add up, and the consequences of tax cuts on public goods and services are always worse than promised." - Author: Alex Himelfarb

Quotes About Pain Makes You Stronger

"Not only do we all have magic, its all around us as well. We just dont pay attention to it. Every time we make something out of nothing, thats an act of magic. It doesnt matter if its a painting or a garden, or an abuelo telling his grandchildren some tall tale. Every time we fix something thats broken, whether its a car engine or a broken heart, thats an act of magic.And what makes it magic is that we *choose* to create or help, just as we can choose to harm. But its so easy to destroy and so much harder to make things better. Thats why doing the right thing makes you stronger.If we can only remember what we are and what we can do, nobody can bind us or control us." - Author: Charles de Lint

Quotes About Trojan War

"One of Romanas particularly important discoveries during this period had been the extent of the Doctors fascination for a planet in the Mutters Spiral galaxy — Sol 3, known to its inhabitants as Earth. [...] The Doctor had spent so much time there, and so much time in the company of its people, that it was hard to interact with him on any meaningful level without at very least a working knowledge of the planets history, social structure and idioms.And so one afternoon she plucked a computer tablet from the TARDIS library and read up on it all, history and culture, from the birth of the planet from drifting clouds of cosmic dust, through the Stone Age, the Trojan War, Homer, Shakespeare, the Freat Break-Out into Space, right up to its eventual immolation in the 57th segment of time. (Been there, seen it, done it, wrote most of that, caused that, the Doctor kept saying over her shoulder, irritatingly.)" - Author: Gareth Roberts

Quotes About Highest

"We trust that acknowledging and releasing grief, pain and other unmentionable feelings is a most healing and blessed function, since it allows emotions to serve as compost for the world we intend to create for ourselves and the next generations to come.In a holistic world there are no personal or individual emotions. Pain comes as a result of perceiving separation and identifying oneself as the cause or the victim of pain. Massive emotional pain has been recycled since ancient times. We believe this pain cannot be held or released by any single individual. We trust instead that it can be collectively released and that those sharing the same trust can join and release together. This is the risk that we can take, that as we collectively expose and release our deepest wounds they can either destroy us or become the gateway into our highest dreams." - Author: Franco Santoro
