Sarah E Titcomb Quotes

"THE attention of the writer having been called to the fact that all Indo-Germanic nations have worshipped crucified Saviours, an investigation of the subject was made. Overwhelming proof was obtained that the sun-myths of the ancient Aryans were the origin of the religions in all of the countries which were peopled by the Aryans. The Saviours worshipped in these lands are personifications of the Sun, the chief god of the Aryans. That Pagan nations worshipped a crucified man, was admitted by the Fathers of the early Christian Church."

Quotes About Superiors

"For a detective or street police, the only real satisfaction is the work itself; when a cop spends more and more time getting aggravated with the details, hes finished. The attitude of co-workers, the indifference of superiors, the poor quality of the equipment - all of it pales if you still love the job; all of it matters if you dont." - Author: David Simon

Quotes About Importance

"For us of course the shared activity and therefore the companionship on which Friendship supervenes will not often be a bodily one like hunting or fighting. It may be a common religion, common studies, a common profession, even a common recreation. All who share it will be our companions; but one or two or three who share something more will be our Friends. In this kind of love, as Emerson said, Do you love me? means Do you see the same truth? - Or at least, "Do you care about the same truth?" The man who agrees with us that some question, little regarded by others, is of great importance can be our Friend. He need not agree with us about the answer." - Author: C.S. Lewis

Quotes About Toxic

"But the death of spirit goes by another name. It is usually called the birth of reason.The dreams of reason are, at this late date, everywhere to be seen, much like headstones in a cemetery. The inertia of a standard which prunes every tree to the dimensions of a utility pole will, with the same determination, core the heart out of the human personality. This fermenting mind, intoxicated by its heady sobriety, methodically slits its own throat, all the while mistaking the elongating wound for a smile.When the spirit is free, according to Nietzsche, the head will be the bowels of the heart. In these top heavy days that have turned life topsy-turvy the head has little appetite for freedom. Instead it has developed a taste for coprophagy." - Author: Ed Lawrence

Quotes About Internet Anonymity

"The new freedom of expression brought by the Internet goes far beyond politics.

Quotes About Casaubon

"And Casaubon had done a wrong to Dorothea in marrying her. A man was bound to know himself better than that, and if he chose to grow grey crunching bones in a cavern, he had no business to be luring a girl into his companionship. It is the most horrible of virgin sacrifices, said Will; and he painted to himself what were Dorotheas inward sorrows as if he had been writing a choric wail." - Author: George Eliot

Quotes About Meeting Me Halfway

"He opens his window and motions for me to open mine. When I do, he tries to say something. His voice barely carries through the sound of the rain coming down hard between us.I lean out the car window. "What?" He leans out his window, meeting me halfway. Were both wet and soaked, but neither of us seems to care. "Dont run away from me when I need to tell you somethin important.""What?" I say, hoping he doesnt notice the tears running down my face, and praying theyre getting mixed up with the rain. "Tonight was . . . well, it was perfect for me, too. Youve turned my world upside down. Ive fallen in love with you, chica, and it scares the fuckin shit outta me. Ive been shakin all night, because I knew it. Ive tried to deny it, to make you think I wanted you as a fake girlfriend, but that was a lie." "I love you, Kiara," he says before his lips move forward and meet mine." - Author: Simone Elkeles
