[We Were Women In Transition, Raised In One Era And Coming Of Age In Another, Very Different Time...here We Were, Entering The Workplace In The 1960s Questioning--and Often Rejecting--many Of The Values We Had Been Taught. We Were The Polite, Perfectionist "good Girls," Who Never Showed Our Drive Or Our Desires Around Men. Now We Were Becoming Mad Women, Discovering And Confronting Our Own Ambitions, A Quality Praised In Men But Stigmatized--still--in Women.]

Lee Strobel Quotes

"So much of the worlds suffering results from the sinful action or inaction of ourselves and others. For example, people look at a famine and wonder where God is, but the world produces enough food for each person to have 3,000 calories a day. Its our own irresponsibility and self-centeredness that prevents people from getting fed."

Bob Feller Quotes

"Life comes down to honesty and doing whats right. Thats whats most important."

Trent Shelton Quotes

"A relationship means you come together to make each other better. Its not all about you, and its not all about them.

Pull out the greatness from within each other.Make sure they can find their biggest fan in you, and you can find yours in them."

Nina Guilbeau Quotes

"We are taught how to read, write, to be polite, cautious and respectful. But no one ever teaches us how to be happy. We have to learn that all on our own."

Crystal Sykes Quotes

"However, in this city (San Francisco) that prides itself in being so progressive, it feels like we need to go back and master something both simple as well as incredibly complex – each other. We can learn to embrace our differences without making them a joke or a spectacle."

Yevgeny Zamyatin Quotes

Quotes About Peace Of Mind And Heart

"I am leaving you with a gift: peace of mind and of heart. And the peace I give isnt fragile like the peace that the world gives. So do not be troubled or afraid. Remember what I told you: I am going away, but I will come back to you again. If you really love me, you will be very happy for me, for now I go to the Father, who is greater than I am. I have told you these things before they happen so that when they do, you will believe in me." - Author: Anonymous

Quotes About Medievalism

"The Reformation was a time when men went blind, staggering drunk because they had discovered, in the dusty basement of late medievalism, a whole cellar full of fifteen-hundred-year-old, two-hundred proof Grace–bottle after bottle of pure distilate of Scripture, one sip of which would convince anyone that God saves us single-handedly. The word of the Gospel–after all those centuries of trying to lift yourself into heaven by worrying about the perfection of your bootstraps–suddenly turned out to be a flat announcement that the saved were home before they started…Grace has to be drunk straight: no water, no ice, and certainly no ginger ale; neither goodness, nor badness, not the flowers that bloom in the spring of super spirituality could be allowed to enter into the case." - Author: Robert Farrar Capon

Quotes About Starting A New Journey In Life

"So thats it. Ive told you everything I know. Think clearly and think for yourself. Learn to use language to express those thoughts. Love somebody with all your heart. And with everyone, whether you love them or not, find out if you can be helpful. But really, its even simpler than that. After all this time, and all these talks in public and in private, I think I get it now. If I were taking my friend Arnolds suggestion and spoke from my deathbed, I think I know what Id say. I see now that I had my meaning all along, I just had to notice it. The meaning of life... is life. Not noticing life is whats meaningless, even down to the last second." - Author: Alan Alda

Quotes About Service Members

"They were worried about keeping military families strong. They were worried about the stress and strain of prolonged military service and how it would affect our military readiness the next time a Hitler-wannabe reared his ugly head. As they made a list of pros and cons for sending families overseas, they never imagined that DOD schools would be the best possible solution to nearly every problem they could envision. The most unpredictable phenomena occurred. The DOD literally created a culture of kids whose life experiences were so rich, yet so different from where theyd come from, that as they grew in years the people they most related to, the people they most wanted to be around, were other military kids who had the same shared experience. Military kids became military members—and theyve kept us strong, our families, armed forces, our country, all of us." - Author: Tucker Elliot
