EJ Dionne Jr Quotes

"...if Clintons answers come off as well-intended lectures, Obama is offering soaring sermons and generational opportunity. In 1960, the articulate Adlai Stevenson compared his own oratory unfavorably with John F. Kennedys. "Do you remember," Stevenson said, "that in classical times when Cicero had finished speaking, the people said, How well he spoke, but when Demosthenes had finished speaking, the people said, Let us march. " At this hour, Obama is the Democrats Demosthenes."

Anandamayi Ma Quotes

"Wherever God may keep you at any time, from there itself must you undertake the pilgrimage to God-realization. In all forms, in action and non-action is He, the One Himself. While attending to your work with your hands, keep yourself bound to Him by sustaining japa, the constant remembrance of Him in your heart and mind. In Gods empire, it is forgetfulness of Him that is detrimental. The way to Peace lies in the remembrance of Him and of Him alone."

Christos Yannaras Quotes

"The word God defines a personal relation, not an objective concept. Like the name of the beloved in every love. It does not imply separation and distance. Hearing the beloved name is an immediate awareness, a dimensionless proximity of presence. It is our life wholly transformed into relation."

Quotes About Trashy Hoes

"Step 6: Stop enjoying things ironically. Just enjoy themKnow what? I love Britney Spears and Forever 21. And I could pretend like its this whole meta thing where Im not actually enjoying it but rather just making this esoteric statement on lowbrow culture, but (insert handjob motion here). The truth is that I love trashy dance pop and the garments that are its clothing equivalent. You dont need to make your tastes a self-conscious statement about who you are. Just unapologetically like the things you like." - Author: Kelly Williams Brown

Quotes About Marching

"We were still confined to that corner. More and more people joined us, some black and some white. On the second day, we awoke to learn that somebody must have told Martin Luther King that things were getting out of hand in Montgomery, because rumor had it that he left the line of march from Selma to join us in the hood. Despite myself, I was thrilled at the prospect of marching with King. I knew this was SNCC turf, and I was now with SNCC, but how can you not be thrilled with the prospect of being so close to the big man himself?" - Author: Junius Williams

Quotes About Coevolution

"In the wild a plant and its pests are continually coevolving, in a dance of resistance and conquest that can have no ultimate victor. But coevolution ceases in an orchard of grafted trees, since they are genetically identical from generation to generation. The problem very simply is that the apple trees no longer reproduce sexually, as they do when theyre grown from seed, and sex is natures way of creating fresh genetic combinations. At the same time the viruses, bacteria, fungi, and insects keep very much at it, reproducing sexually and continuing to evolve until eventually they hit on the precise genetic combination that allows them to overcome whatever resistance the apples may have once possessed. Suddenly total victory is in the pests sight—unless, that is, people come to the trees rescue, wielding the tools of modern chemistry." - Author: Michael Pollan

Quotes About She Left Me

"To speak in a flat voiceIs all that I can do.I have gone every placeAsking for you.Wondering where to turnAnd how the search would endAnd the last streetlight spinAbove me blind. Then I returned rebuffedAnd saw under the sunThe race not to the swiftNor the battle won. Liston dives in the tank,Lord, in Lewiston, Maine,And Ernie Dotys drunkIn hell again. And Jenny, oh my JennyWhom I love, rhyme be damned,Has broken her spare beautyIn a whorehouse old.She left her new babyIn a bus-station can,And sprightly danced awayThrough Jacksontown.Which is a place I know,One where I got picked upA few shrunk years agoBy a good cop.Believe it, Lord, or not.Dont ask me who he was.I speak of flat defeatIn a flat voice. I have gone forward with Some, a few lonely some. They have fallen to death. I die with them. Lord, I have loved Thy cursed,The beauty of Thy house:Come down. Come down. Why dostThou hide thy face?" - Author: James Wright

Quotes About Graphic Organizers

"Take now the clockworks... The clockworks, being genuine and not much to look at, dont generate the drama of an Earth-tilt or a flying saucer, nor do they seem to offer any immediate panacea for humanitys fifty-seven varieties of heartburn. But suppose that youre one of those persons who feels trapped, to some degree, trapped matrimonially, occupationally, eductionally or geographically, or trapped in something larger than all those; trapped in a system, or what you might descrbie as an "incresingly deadening technocracy" or a "theater of paranoia and desperation" or something like that. Now, if you are one of those persons... wouldnt the very knowledge that there are clockworks ticking away behind the wallpaper of civilization, unbeknownst to leaders, organizers and managers (the President included), wouldnt that knowledge, suggesting as it does the possibility of unimaginable alternatives, wouldnt that knowledge be a bubble bath for your heart?" - Author: Tom Robbins
