Daniel J Flynn Quotes

"What never fails inside the mind of an intellectual never works outside the confines of his head. The worlds stubborn refusal to vindicate the intellectuals theories serves as proof of humanitys irrationality, not his own. Thus, the true believer retrenches rather than rethinks; he launches a war on the world, denying reality because it fails to conform to his theories. If intellectuals are not prepared to reconcile theory and practice, then why do they bother to venture outside the ivory tower or the coffeehouse? Why not stay in the world of abstractions and fantasy?"

Laura Weakley Quotes

"Leadership isnt about power for the sake of power - not true leadership. Instead it deals with modeling behavior you want others to have, and with responsibility for being certain the people you lead are treated equitably, and with respect. Not an easy task. You cant make other people feel anything, or think anything; you can only try to teach them what you want them to feel and think and why you think they should act accordingly."

"Passion often makes fools of the wisest men and gives the silliest wisdom."

George Cardinal Pell Quotes

"In this confusion we begin to see what lies behind John Paul IIs startling warning about democracy "effectively mov[ing] towards a form of totalitarianism." It begins to happen at a practical level when we simultaneously hold that rights which arise from the dignity of the person are also a matter of "bargaining." New rights can be claimed or created, and whatever privileges can be negotiated around them are then secured by reference to human dignity, even when these new rights are directly contrary to the human dignity of some, for example, the unborn or the elderly sick. This confusion about the nature of rights debases their currency and undermines the first principles of democracy. Such freedom gradually becomes a tyrannical "freedom of the the strong against the weak, who have no choice but to submit."

Quotes About Invasion Of Privacy

"I come in here and you gotta be here; Im thinkin about football, and you gotta be here with your tits and your ass and this tight shrunken clothes and these shriveled jeans, so thats all Im thinking about from the minute I see you is tits and ass. Football doesnt have a chance against it. Its like this invasion of tits and ass overwhelming my own measly individuality so I dont have a prayer to have my own thoughts about my own things except you and tits and ass and sucking and fucking and thats all I can think about. My privacy has been demolished. You think a person wants that kind of a thing to happen their heads - they are trying to give their problems some serious thought, the next thing they know theres nothing in their brains as far as they can see but your tits and ass? You think a person likes that?" - Author: David Rabe

Quotes About Father And Newborn Son

"I got the idea from our familys plant book. The place where we recorded things you cannot trust to memory. The page begins with the persons picture. A photo if we can find it. If not, a sketch or a painting by Peeta. Then, in my most careful handwriting, come all the details it would be a crime to forget. Lady licking Prims cheek. My fathers laugh. Peetas father with the cookies. The colour of Finnicks eyes. What Cinna would do with a length of silk. Boggs reprogramming the Holo. Rue poised on her toes, arms slightly extended, like bird about to take flight. On and on. We seal the pages with salt water and promises to live well to make their deaths count. Haymitch finally joins us, contributing twenty-three years of tributes he was forced to mentor. Additions become smaller. An old memory that surfaces. A late promise preserved between the pages. Strange bits of happiness, like the photo of Finnick and Annies newborn son." - Author: Suzanne Collins

Quotes About Llano

"The thing that Buffalo Hump was most grateful for, as he rode into the emptiness, was the knowledge that in the years of his youth and manhood he had drawn the lifeblood of so many enemies. He had been a great killer; it was his way and the way of his people; no one in his tribe had killed so often and so well. The killings were good to remember, as he rode his old horse deeper into the llano, away from all the places where people came." - Author: Larry McMurtry

Quotes About Golgotha

"Flute Notes from a Reedy Pond"Now coldness comes sifting down, layer after layer, To our bower at the lily root. Overhead the old umbrellas of summer Wither like pithless hands. There is little shelter. Hourly the eye of the sky enlarges its blank Dominion. The stars are no nearer. Already frog-mouth and fish-mouth drink The liquor of indolence, and all thing sink Into a soft caul of forgetfulness. The fugitive colors die. Caddis worms drowse in their silk cases, The lamp-headed nymphs are nodding to sleep like statues. Puppets, loosed from the strings of the puppetmaster Wear masks of horn to bed. This is not death, it is something safer. The wingy myths wont tug at us anymore: The molts are tongueless that sang from above the water Of golgotha at the tip of a reed, And how a god flimsy as a babys finger Shall unhusk himself and steer into the air." - Author: Sylvia Plath

Quotes About Distorted Face

"Hyoi, it is through me that this has happened. It is the other hmana who have hit you, the bent two that brought me to Malacandra. We are only half hnau--Hyoi..." His speech died away into the inarticulate. He did not know the words for "forgive," or "shame," or "fault," hardly the word for "sorry." He could only stare into Hyois distorted face in speechless guilt. But the hross seemed to understand. It was trying to say something, and Ransom laid his ear close to the working mouth. Hyois dulling eyes were fixed on his own, but the expression of a hross was not even now perfectly intelligible to him."Hna--hma," it muttered and then, at last, Hman, hnakrapunt." - Author: C.S. Lewis
