Brent Olson Quotes

"Of course, fall isnt just about preparing for winter. Its also about sitting on the patio in a worn wool sweater and warming your hands over the swirl of steam rising from a coffee cup. Its about walking across a darkened yard and seeing a flight of geese cross the face of a full moon. Its about settling in, relishing sights and sensations of a world slowing down."

Quotes About Anti Terrorism

"With Derrida, you can hardly misread him, because hes so obscure. Every time you say, "He says so and so," he always says, "You misunderstood me." But if you try to figure out the correct interpretation, then thats not so easy. I once said this to Michel Foucault, who was more hostile to Derrida even than I am, and Foucault said that Derrida practiced the method of obscurantisme terroriste (terrorism of obscurantism). We were speaking French. And I said, "What the hell do you mean by that?" And he said, "He writes so obscurely you cant tell what hes saying, thats the obscurantism part, and then when you criticize him, he can always say, You didnt understand me; youre an idiot. Thats the terrorism part." And I like that. So I wrote an article about Derrida. I asked Michel if it was OK if I quoted that passage, and he said yes." - Author: John Rogers Searle

Quotes About Common Humanity

"If the USA doesnt start learning how to put personal egos aside for the sustainability of a nation, then these "mighty" United States will be no better than the politically divided commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Where progress is slowed because each party thinks any idea from the other party must be stupid or without validity and Independence has become a distant dream squashed by corruption. I suggest politicians go back to kindergarten to learn the basics in decent humanity. The notions of sharing and respect obviously didnt stick the first time." - Author: Cristina Marrero

Quotes About Celebrating Together

"Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to a ceremony celebrating Blake Hartt and Livia McHugh. Today is not the start of their lives together. It will mark the day we all stood, clapped, and gave good wishes. But their fates were destined for each other long before they even met. True love, the kind that lasts forever, is very rare indeed. It takes compromise, continued growth, and trust."Cole paused to look from Blake to Livia and back again. "Livia and Blake have a head start on all those things," he continued. "Time has tested them already, asking a fresh love to face terrifying and life-changing tasks. These two had to find and hold onto their love, even when it felt like all was lost." - Author: Debra Anastasia

Quotes About False Representation

"Some false representations contravene the law; some do not. ... The sensibilities of no two men are the same. Some would refuse to sell property without carefully explaining all about its merits and defects, and putting themselves in the purchasers place and inquiring if he himself would buy under the circumstances. But such men never would be prosperous merchants." - Author: Clarence Darrow

Quotes About Bell Ringing

Quotes About International Health

"If you travel internationally, you will feel shocked by contemptuous talk of America. To hear your fellow citizens characterized as barbarians who know nothing of love, food, health, and religion, but everything of lawsuits, fast food, and guns, is to experience a national fidelity of which you may not have thought yourself capable. And yet, youre at a loss for a defense." - Author: Hilary Thayer Hamann
