[We Need To Make Some Dramatic, Concrete Moves To Escape The Materialism That Seeps Into Our Minds Via Diabolically Clever And Incessant Advertising. We Have Been Brainwashed To Believe That Bigger Houses, More Prosperous Businesses, And More Sophisticated Gadgets Are The Way To Joy And Fulfillment. As A Result, We Are Caught In An Absurd, Materialistic Spiral. The More We Make, The More We Think We Need In Order To Live Decently And Respectably. Somehow We Have To Break This Cycle Because It Makes Us Sin Against Our Needy Brothers And Sisters And, Therefore, Against Our Lord. And It Also Destroys Us. Sharing With Others Is The Way To Real Joy.]

Quotes About Fear In 1984

"See confusion as confusion. Acknowledge suffering as suffering. Feel pain and sorrow and divisiveness. Experience anger or fear or shock for what they are. But you dont have to think of them as evil - as intrinsically bad, as needing to be destroyed or driven from our midst. On the contrary, they need to be absorbed, healed, made whole.

Quotes About Satyr

"Hooves clomping over the whitewashed planks, Doren sprinted along the boardwalk after Rondus, a portly satyr with butterscotch fur and horns that curved away from each other. Puffing hard, Rondus cut through a gazebo and started down the stairs to the field. Only a few steps behind, Doren went airborne and slammed into the heavyset satyr. Together they pitched violently forward into the grass, staining their skin green." - Author: Brandon Mull

Quotes About Ideal Partner

"Wir alle machen unsere ersten Erfahrungen am anderen Geschlecht an unseren Eltern und Geschwistern. Die Beziehung der Eltern zueinander, die an ihnen erlebte Ehe oder sonstige Gemeinschaft, die Erfahrungen mit unseren Geschwistern formen unsere Erwartungen von Partnerschaft, Liebe und Sexualität. Hatten wir das Glück, unsere Eltern auch als Paar lieben zu können, ohne sie idealisieren zu müssen, ohne sie andererseits bedauern oder verachten, ja vielleicht hassen zu müssen; konnten wir ihre Begrenztheit, ihre Sorgen und Probleme, ihr Bemühen miterleben, aber auch ihre Freuden, ihr Zueinander-Stehen, ihr Verständnis für und ihr Vertrauen zueinander, haben wir mehr Aussichten, einen Partner zu finden, der solchen Erwartungen entspricht, und haben zugleich für unser eigenes Partner-Sein ein realisierbares Bild vorschweben." - Author: Fritz Riemann

Quotes About Making Choices For Yourself

"It was the Law of Attraction that she was referring to, and it was something I had always understood on a certain, nebulous level but rarely had paid attention to until a situation got so extreme that I had no other choice but to listen because I was out of other options. Like attracts like. Positive attracts positive, negative attracts negative. Change your outlook, change your day-to-day experience, change your future, change your world. Now that I was more conscious of it, I was working to enact it more into my life by making better choices and opening myself to the change that appeared for me to reach out and experience. That was key, too--being open to the change and allowing it to happen. Not being too afraid to experience something efferent and unfamiliar. Allowing yourself to stretch and grow in new ways of being. Change was scary, but it was exciting, too. It all comes back to you and your outlook." - Author: Madelyn Alt

Quotes About How It Could Be Worse

"If my sin appears to me to be in any way smaller or less reprehensible in comparison with the sins of others, then I am not yet recognizing my sin at all. My sin is of necessity the worst, the most serious, the most objectionable. Christian love will find any number of excusesfor the sins of others; only for my sin is there no excuse whatsoever. That is why my sin is the worst. Those who would serve others in the community must descend all the way down to this depth of humility. How could I possibly serve other persons in unfeigned humility if their sins appear to me to be seriously worse than my own? If I am to have any hope for them, then I must not raise myself above them. Such service would be a sham. "Do" - Author: Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Quotes About Affront

"Que savons-nous vraiment de notre monde ? Peut-on véritablement croire ce que les dirigeants de la planète choisissent de nous révéler ? Qui sont réellement ces gens ?Le Bien et le Mal continuent de saffronter, bien souvent à notre insu. Il est évidemment plus facile de constater les effets dévastateurs du Mal, car la Lumière œuvre de façon discrète. Cette dernière marque des points sans que jamais personne ne lapplaudisse. Ses anges gardiens ne connaissent pas la gloire et, pourtant, ils donneraient leur vie pour sauver la nôtre." - Author: Anne Robillard
