Quotes About Degeneracy

"He had no longer free energy enough for spontaneous research and speculative thinking, but by the bedside of patients the direct external calls on his judgment and sympathies brought the added impulse needed to draw him out of himself. It was not simply that beneficent harness of routine which enables silly men to live respectably and unhappy men to live calmly - it was a perpetual claim on the immediate fresh application of thought, and on the consideration of anothers need and trial. Many of us looking back through life would say that the kindest man we have ever known has been a medical man, or perhaps that surgeon whose fine tact, directed by deeply-informed perception, has come to us in our need with a more sublime beneficence than that of miracle-workers. Some of that twice-blessed mercy was always with Lydgate in his work at the Hospital or in private houses, serving better than any opiate to quiet and sustain him under anxieties and his sense of mental degeneracy." - Author: George Eliot

Quotes About Mexican American War

"The Mexicans had fired the first shot. But they had done what the American government wanted, according to Colonel Hitchcock, who wrote in his diary, even before those first incidents: I have said from the first that the United States are the aggressors. . . . We have not one particle of right to be here. . . . It looks as if the government sent a small force on purpose to bring on a war, so as to have a pretext for taking California and as much of this country as it chooses, for, whatever becomes of this army, there is no doubt of a war between the United States and Mexico. . . . My heart is not in this business . . . but, as a military man, I am bound to execute orders." - Author: Howard Zinn

Quotes About Thanking God For All The Blessings

"Our first night in the house, my wife and I were lying in bed. I was thanking God for my blessings. Thanking God for not having to pull aside a dining room curain to have my children near—that they were right down the hall, asleep in their Superman underwear, their little chests rising and falling to the pulse of their dreams.I thought how some blessings are fickle guests. Just when we think theyre here to stay, they pack their bags and move. When were in the midst of blessing, we think its our due—that blessing lasts forever. Next thing you know were sitting helpless beside a hospital bed. All were left with is a name on a wall, a toy in a desk, and memories that haunt our sleep.Sometimes we come to gratitute too late. Its only after blessing has passed on that we realize what we had.—chapter 2" - Author: Philip Gulley

Quotes About Being Small In Size

"In my dreams a small wolf slept inside of me and it wasnt comfortable. It moved its heels and elbows and paws, struggled to make space between my lungs, stomach, bladder. Occasionally a scrabbling claw punctured something and I woke. What were you dreaming? Arabella wanted to know. I knew what it was dreaming. It was dreaming of being born. The form and scale of its occupancy shifted. Sometimes its legs were in my legs, its head in my head, its paws in my hands. Other times it was barely the size of a kitten, heartburn hot and fidgety under my sternum. Id wake and for a moment feel my face changed, reach up and touch the muzzle that wasnt there." - Author: Glen Duncan

Quotes About Domingo

"Hay mil podando las ramas del mal por uno que golpea en la raíz, y puede que aquel que otorgue la mayor cantidad de tiempo y de dinero a los necesitados sea el que más haga con su modo de vida para producir la miseria que trata de aliviar en vano. Sería como el piadoso dueño de esclavos que dedica las ganancias del décimo esclavo a comprar la libertad de un domingo para los demás. Algunos muestran su amabilidad con los pobres empleándolos en sus cocinas. ¿No serían más amables si se emplearan allí a sí mismos? Os jactáis de gastar la décima parte de vuestros ingresos en la caridad; tal vez deberíais gastar las nueve décimas partes y acabar con ella. La sociedad recupera entonces sólo una décima parte de la propiedad. ¿Se debe a la generosidad del que la posee o a la negligencia de los oficiales de justicia?" - Author: Henry David Thoreau

Quotes About The Things They Carried

"In the days that follow, he begins to remember things about Moushumi, images that come to him without warning while he is sitting at his desk at work, or during a meeting, or drifting off to sleep, or standing in the mornings under the shower. They are scenes he has carried within him, buried but intact, scenes he has never thought about or had reason to conjure up until now." - Author: Jhumpa Lahiri

Quotes About Love And To Be Love

"There is an old question, rarely voiced these days, but nevertheless running as an undercurrent beneath the squabbles and misunderstandings that occur in households, workplaces and universities on a daily basis. ‘What do women want? has been asked in a bewildered, almost exasperated, tone since women first began to say they wanted more. Yet the answer seems to us to be simple and entirely self-evident. Women want what all sentient human beings want. They want to develop their own talents and put them to good use, to earn and control their own money so they can be truly independent and make free choices. They want to gain status and respect as they prove to be worth of it. To love and to be loved as free and equal adults, to be allowed their human flaws and foibles and not to be unfairly judged for them, and to be forgiven when they fail, behave badly or have trouble coping. To be the subject and not the object. They want, in short, what men want. – pg. 237" - Author: Jane Caro Catherine Fox

Quotes About Capture

"You can capture this body of mine, take away my freedom and enslave me. You may even have the power to capture my soul and sentence me to the realm of eternal darkness. But my dreams you cannot touch. They are my will―the very essence of who I am. In them I laugh. In them I cry. In them I love. And in them…….I live.My dreams are untouchable and unceasing." - Author: Richelle E. Goodrich
