[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.]

Bob Balaban Quotes

"God, Id love to do a big commercial movie that made a lot of money and whose plot was interesting too."

Samuel R Delany Quotes

"And what have I invested in interpreting disfocus for chaos? This threat: the only lesson is to wait. I crouch in the smoggy terminus. The streets lose edges, the rims of thought flake. What have I set myself to fix in this dirty notebook that is not mine? Does the revelation that, though it cannot be done with words, it might be accomplished in some lingual gap, give me the right, in injury, walking with a woman and her dog in pain? Rather the long doubts: that this labor tears up the minds moorings; that, though life may be important in the scheme, awareness is an imperfect tool with which to face it. To reflect is to fight away the sheets of silver, the carbonated distractions, the feeling that, somehow, a thumb is pressed on the right eye. This exhaustion melts what binds, releases what flows."

Patricia Duncker Quotes

"Sav svoj novac je trošila na kupovinu knjiga, a sve vrijeme na njihovo čitanje. Sve su bile ispisane kritikama, odgovorima na marginama, ponekad su među njih bile umetnute čitave stranice komentara. Šunjala se kroz stoljeća pisanja, ostavljajući svoj znak kud god bi išla."

Bob Mayer Quotes

Quotes About Growing Up Poor

"Bleak as the scene was, though, there was growing joy in Inmans heart. He was nearing home; he could feel it in the touch of thin air on skin, in his longing to see the lead of hearth smoke from the houses of people he had known all his life. People he would not be called upon to hate or fear. He rose and took a wide stance on the rock and stood and pinched down his eyes to sharpen the view across the vast propect to one far mountain. It stood apart from the sky only as the stroke of a poorly inked pen, a line thin and quick and gestural. But the shape slowly grew plain and unmistakable. It was to Cold Mountain he looked. He had achieved a vista of what for him was homeland." - Author: Charles Frazier

Quotes About Human Behaviors

"Learning to give and receive freely requires a long, laborious process of re-educating our minds, which have been conditioned by thousands of years of struggle for survival.16 The violent entry of divine revelation and the Gospel into the world is like an evolutionary ferment, intended to make our psychology "evolve" toward an attitude of free giving and free receiving—the attitude of the Kingdom because it is the attitude of love. This is a process of divinization, whose final goal is to love as God loves: "You must be perfect, as your Father in heaven is perfect."17 And this divinization, this becoming God-like, means becoming human in the truest sense! It is a marvelous, liberating evolution: but we can only enter into the new way of being through the destruction of many of our natural behaviors, a sort of death-agony." - Author: Jacques Philippe

Quotes About Spiegel

"Als ein Frevel, als ein Raub an der göttlichen Natur erscheine hier die Aneignung des Feuers, der erste Schritt jeder aufsteigenden Kultur, und diesen arischen Mythus, der den heroischen Drang darstelle, über den Bann der Individuation hinauszuschreiten, stellt er den semitischen Sündenfallmythus [entgegen], in welchem die Neugierde, die lügnerische Vorspiegelung, die Verführbarkeit, die Lüsternheit [...] als der Ursprung des übels angesehen wurde." - Author: Friedrich Nietzsche

Quotes About The Future Is Now

"Mara," his arms gave me a squeeze, "baby, youve got to live in the now. Not in your head. Not controlled by your fears. You cant live for what might happen five months in the future. You got issues you gotta face today. You gotta deal with them now. You got two kids who count on you and their lives arent gonna go perfect every day because you weigh every decision you make and tread cautiously. Those options are no longer available to you. Youre gonna have to live day to day and make decisions on the fly. And Im tellin you Im here to help. You need it and they need it. Are you honestly gonna say no?" - Author: Kristen Ashley

Quotes About Romantic Weather

"My idea of absolute happiness is to sit in a hot garden all, reading, or writing, utterly safe in the knowledge that the person I love will come home to me in the evening. Every evening.You are a romantic, Edith, repeated Mr Neville, with a smile.It is you who are wrong, she replied. I have been listening to that particular accusation for most of my life. I am not a romantic. I am a domestic animal. I do not sigh and yearn for extravagant displays of passion, for the grand affair, the world well lost for love. I know all that, and know that it leaves you lonely. No, what I crave is the simplicity of routine. An evening walk, arm in arm, in fine weather. A game of cards. Time for idle talk. Preparing a meal together." - Author: Anita Brookner

Quotes About Drive And Determination

"Why are some countries able, despite their very real and serious problems, to press ahead along the road to reconciliation, recovery, and redevelopment while others cannot? These are critical questions for Africa, and their answers are complex and not always clear. Leadership is crucial, of course. Kagame was a strong leader–decisive, focused, disciplined, and honest–and he remains so today. I believe that sometimes peoples characters are molded by their environment. Angola, like Liberia, like Sierra Leone, is resource-rich, a natural blessing that sometimes has the sad effect of diminishing the human drive for self-sufficiency, the ability and determination to maximize that which one has. Kagame had nothing. He grew up in a refugee camp, equipped with only his own strength of will and determination to create a better life for himself and his countrymen." - Author: Ellen Johnson Sirleaf

Quotes About Becoming Stronger

"Every life has peaks and shadows and times when it seems that the birds dont sing and bells dont ring. Yet in spite of discouragement and adversity, those who are happiest seem to have a way of learning from difficult times, becoming stronger, wiser, and happier as a result." - Author: Joseph B. Wirthlin
