James Gould Cozzens Quotes

"At Childerstown High School and at college he had never led his class nor taken prizes; but, without being aware that he did, he really blamed this on his failure to work hard, or any harder than he needed to. . . . What he did not know, what Paul Bonbright, among others, showed him, was that those abilities of his that got him, without distinction but also without much exertion, through all previous lessons and examinations, were not first rate abilities handicapped by laziness, but second rate, by no degree of effort or assiduity to be made the equal of abilities like Bonbrights."

Maynard Jackson Quotes

"Behind closed doors they had what were legendary battles I hear but when the doors opened there was absolute unity. Not a crack could be found. No separation whatsoever. They were locked together for the good of the community."

Manning Marable Quotes

"By dismantling the narrow politics of racial identity and selective self-interest, by going beyond black and white, we may construct new values, new institutions and new visions of an America beyond traditional racial categories and racial oppression."

E Digby Baltzell Quotes

"The downfall of every civilization comes, not from the moral corruption of the common man, but rather from the moral complacency of common men in high places."

Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall Quotes

"I have a lot of time for vegetarians (though apparently not all of them have a lot of time for me), and thats because I respect anyone with principles about food."

Emily Meade Quotes

"I am completely Socratic."

Rebecca Bloom Quotes

Robert Guillaume Quotes

"Im not trying to say that it never hurt or that I never felt its sting, but I can honestly say that I never blamed anybody for racism. I have considered it more of a manifestation of humanitys problem rather than my personal problem."

Quotes About Lucian

"Everything is biographical, Lucian Freud says. What we make, why it is made, how we draw a dog, who it is we are drawn to, why we cannot forget. Everything is collage, even genetics. There is the hidden presence of others in us, even those we have known briefly. We contain them for the rest of our lives, at every border we cross." - Author: Michael Ondaatje

Quotes About Well Educated

"If you spend any amount of time doing media analysis, its clear that the most frenzied moral panic surrounding young womens sexuality comes from the mainstream media, which loves to report about how promiscuous girls are, whether theyre acting up on spring break, getting caught topless on camera, or catching all kinds of STIs. Unsurprisingly, these types of articles and stories generally fail to mention that women are attending college at the highest rates in history, and that were the majority of undergraduate and masters students. Well-educated and socially engaged women just dont make for good headlines, it seems." - Author: Jessica Valenti

Quotes About Nothing Phases Me

"Nothing had been the same; and this slight, all-pervading instability, had given her greater pain than if all had been too entirely changed for her to recognise it. I begin to understand now what heaven must be-and, oh! the grandeur and repose of the words-"The same yesterday, to-day, and for ever." Everlasting! "From everlasting to everlasting, Thou art God." That sky above me looks as though it could not change, and yet it will. I am so tired-so tired of being whirled on through all these phases of my life, in which nothing abides by me, no creature, no place; it is like the circle in which the victims of earthly passion eddy continually. I am in the mood in which women of another religion take the veil. I seek heavenly steadfastness in earthy monotony." - Author: Elizabeth Gaskell

Quotes About Fired

"You cant quit!" I shouted. "I need you. How am I going to know what to do unless you tell me? Im lost without you, Lane!" "Youll be better off without me," he insisted. "Youre abandoning me!" "Im doing this for you, Moon," Lane said firmly. "Tell the press you fired me. Tell them Im incompetent. Theyll blame me for everything thats gone wrong. This will deflect the criticism away from you. Im doing this to save your presidency, Moon. Part of the job of a presidential adviser is to protect the president." "You protect the president by quitting?" "Yes, if necessary." I begged Lane to reconsider, but nothing I said would convince him to stay. When I realized that, I hugged Lane, we wished each other well, and he walked out of the Oval Office." - Author: Dan Gutman

Quotes About Constant Change

"The things Ive seen," he continues easily, "have shown me that the only constant is change. Too much power in one place is a fools errand. Eventually, and inevitably, no matter how good the intentions, or how long the life, power always wins out, and everyone suffers for it. The only true path of rational existence is balance; a constant re-assessment of the burdens of power, if you will." - Author: Bill Blais

Quotes About I Saw You In My Dream

"It was with some surprise that I saw that the person waiting for me at the airports exit was Adrian. A grin spread over my face, and I picked up the pace. I threw my arms around him, astonishing both of us. "I have never been happier to see you in my life," I said. He squeezed me tightly and then let me go, regarding me admiringly. "The dreams never do justice to real life, little dhampir. You look amazing.""And you look . . ." I studied him. He was dressed as nicely as always. His dark brown hair had that crafted messiness he liked, but his face—ah, well. As Id noted before, Simon had gotten a few good punches on him. One of Adrians eyes was swollen and ringed with bruises. Nonetheless, thinking about him and everything hed done . . . Well, none of the flaws mattered. " . . . Gorgeous." "Liar," he said."Couldnt Lissa have healed that black eye away?" "Its a badge of honor. Makes me seem manly." - Author: Richelle Mead

Quotes About Intelligenz

"E molte persone hanno una specie di bug: credono che lintelligenza sia un fine. Hanno ununica idea in testa: essere intelligenti, e questa è una cosa stupissima. E quando lintelligenza crede di essere uno scopo, funziona in modo strano: non dimostra la sua esistenza con lingegno e la semplicità dei suoi frutti, bensì con loscurità della sua espressione"." - Author: Muriel Barbery
