[What, Unless Biological Science Is A Mass Of Errors, Is The Cause Of Human Intelligence And Vigour? Hardship And Freedom: Conditions Under Which The Active, Strong, And Subtle Survive And The Weaker Go To The Wall; Conditions That Put A Premium Upon The Loyal Alliance Of Capable Men, Upon Self-restraint, Patience, And Decision. And The Institution Of The Family, And The Emotions That Arise Therein, The Fierce Jealousy, The Tenderness For Offspring, Parental Self-devotion, All Found Their Justification And Support In The Imminent Dangers Of The Young.]

Quotes About Chance Taking

"Most people say if you tell a wish it wont come true. But I dont think wishes work like that. I dont believe theres some bad-tempered wish-fairy with a clipboard, checking off whether or not youve told...But its a long shot Ill get my wish, so even if there is a fairy in charge of telling, it wont matter.I wish everyone had the same chances, I say. Because it stinks a big one that they dont. What about you? What did you wish for?Grape soda.I cant help smiling. You wished for grape soda? He doesnt answer, and I pull my hand from my pocket. Taking one of his fluttering hands, I wrap his fingers tightly around a dollar. Wish granted, toad.He takes off running and Dad runs after him.I close my eyes and make a new wish.I wish the refreshment stand has grape soda." - Author: Cynthia Lord

Quotes About Revolutionary Life

"Demian is about a very specific task or crisis in ones youth, which continues beyond that stage, but mostly effects young people: the struggle to forge an identity and develop a personality of ones own.Not everyone is allotted the chance to become a personality; most remain types, and never experience the rigor of becoming an individual. But those who do so inevitably discover that these struggles bring them into conflict with the normal life of average people and the traditional values and bourgeois conventions that they uphold. A personality is the product of a clash between two opposing forces: the urge to create a life of ones own and the insistence by the world around us that we conform. Nobody can develop a personality unless he undergoes revolutionary experiences. The extent of those experiences differs, of course, from person to person, as does the capacity to lead a life that is truly personal and unique." - Author: Hermann Hesse

Quotes About Rousseau Democracy

"I am a democrat [proponent of democracy] because I believe in the Fall of Man.I think most people are democrats for the opposite reason. A great deal of democratic enthusiasm descends from the ideas of people like Rousseau, who believed in democracy because they thought mankind so wise and good that every one deserved a share in the government.The danger of defending democracy on those grounds is that theyre not true. . . . I find that theyre not true without looking further than myself. I dont deserve a share in governing a hen-roost. Much less a nation. . . .The real reason for democracy is just the reverse. Mankind is so fallen that no man can be trusted with unchecked power over his fellows. Aristotle said that some people were only fit to be slaves. I do not contradict him. But I reject slavery because I see no men fit to be masters." - Author: C.S. Lewis

Quotes About Nourritures

"Le plaisir sexuel nétait pas seulement supérieur, en raffinement et en violence, à tous les autres plaisirs que pouvait comporter la vie; il nétait pas seulement lunique plaisir qui ne saccompagne daucun dommage pour lorganisme, mais qui contribue au contraire à le maintenir à son plus haut niveau de vitalité et de force; il était lunique plaisir, lunique objectif en vérité de lexistence humaine, et tous les autres - quils soient associés aux nourritures riches, au tabac, aux alcools ou à la drogue - nétaient que des compensations dérisoires et désespérées, des mini-suicides qui navaient pas le courage de dire leur nom, des tentatives pour détruire plus rapidement un corps qui navait plus accès au plaisir unique." - Author: Michel Houellebecq

Quotes About Sometimes I Wonder

"I know I should have ignored her. I should have called. Many times I almost did. I got as far as picking up the phone. Sometimes I even dialed your parents number but then I wondered what Id say to you. We had left it too long. How would we ever get around the silence, which was like an elephant sitting in the room?" - Author: Michael Robotham

Quotes About Particularism

"First, it is a commitment to particularism, to giving priority to the specificity of particulars, not to abstractions and generalities that divert our attention away from concrete realities. Idealizations tend to be partial and distorting, obscuring the heterogeneity and complexity of actual experiences and concrete practices, which is why they do not provide an adequate standpoint for the diagnosis of social problems and injustices." - Author: José Medina

Quotes About Consultant Management
