Frank Rich Quotes

"Up in the Air is not a political movie. It wont be mistaken for either a Michael Moore or Any Rand polemic on capitalism."

Thomas Carper Quotes

"Clean air is a basic right. The responsibility to ensure that falls to Congress and the president."

Hugh Ross Quotes

"Innumerable conditions must be exquisitely optimized for the support of humanity and of civilization. Many of them are highly time variable. Evidence showing that a wide variety of independent conditions all reached optimality during the identical narrow epoch when human beings appeared on the cosmic and terrestrial scene testifies of supernatural design and purpose rather than mere coincidence."

Kevin McCarthy Quotes

"There are two different types of leader. A person can either be like a thermometer or a thermostat. A thermometer will tell you what the temperature is. A thermostat will not only tell you what the temperature is, but itll move you to the temperature you need to get to."

Dave Eggers Quotes

"Toph looks at me. I nod gravely. In this world, in our new world, there will be rocking. We will pay tribute to musicmakers like Journey, particularly if this is Two-for-Tuesday, which means inevitably that one of the songs will be: Just a small-town girl..."

Quotes About Gods Not Dead

"Every poet knows that the gift of the gods is not fire but language. "Man dwells poetically on this earth," Hölderin wrote. Language is the essence of being human. We can think, thanks to language, for thought exists only by the grace of words. Our experiences and emotions are molded by language. It is language that allows us to name and know the world. We ourselves are known by language, through prayer, confession, poetry. Language gives us a world that reaches beyond the reality of the moment, to a past (there was…) and a future (there shall be…). It is through language that eternity has a space and that the dead continue to speak: "Defunctus adhuc loquitur" (Hebrews 11:4). Thanks to language, there is meaning, there is truth." - Author: Rob Riemen

Quotes About Beauties Of Nature

"Every age, every culture, every custom and tradition has its own character, its own weakness and its own strength, its beauties and ugliness; accepts certain sufferings as matters of course, puts up patiently with certain evils. Human life is reduced to real suffering, real hell, only when two ages, two cultures and religions overlap. A man of the Classical Age who had to live in medieval times would suffocate miserably just as a savage does in the midst of our civilization. Now there are times when a whole generation is caught in this way between two ages, two modes of life, with the consequence that it loses all power to understand itself and has no standard, no security, no simple acquiescence. Naturally, everyone does not feel this equally strongly. A nature such as Nietzsches had to suffer our present ills more than a generation in advance. What he had to go through alone and misunderstood, thousands suffer today." - Author: Hermann Hesse

Quotes About Inconsequential

"To accept the environmentalist argument that the suffering of individual animals is inconsequential compared to the ozone layer, we must be willing to admit that the sufferings of minority groups, raped women, battered wives, abused children, people sitting on death row, and our loved ones are small potatoes beneath the hole in the sky. To worry about any of them is, in effect, to miniaturize the big picture to portraits of battered puppy dogs." - Author: Karen Davis

Quotes About Calmness In The Storm

"At noon, on the Fourth of July, 1826, while the Liberty Bell was again sounding its old message to the people of Philadelphia, the soul of Thomas Jefferson passed on; and a few hours later John Adams entered into rest, with the name of his old friend upon his lips." - Author: Allen Johnson

Quotes About Jonathon

"Tristan started the car, pulling carefully out onto the street now that the snow had begun to fall."You seemed so happy this last quarter," P.K. prompted."I was. I fell in love.""And?""It didnt work out--isnt working out." Tristan shook his head. "Im not ready.""Ah," said P.K. They drove the rest of the way in silence. Tristan thought then that he was lucky; Jonathon and Daniel didnt know how to value a silence, but P.K. made it comfortable. He was glad he was here with P.K. and not alone in the unbearable silence of snow." - Author: Z.A. Maxfield

Quotes About Feet And Shoes

"My shoes were all muddy, so before I walked in my friends house I sprinkled grass clippings all over my feet and said, "Excuse the mess—I just stepped in real estate." While the value of my words wasnt like 2007 prices, it was still worth enough for him to let me in without making me take off my shoes." - Author: Jarod Kintz
