Ronald Knox Quotes

"A good sermon should be like a womans skirt: short enough to arouse interest but long enough to cover the essentials."

Leonard Shlain Quotes

"Democrtitus, in the fifth century B.C. had declared that all the world was composed of only two elements: atomes and the void. This reduction of the myriad of forms to only two was the ultimate in dualistic reasoning. Christianity adopted dualism when it created the strict division between good and evil and heaven and hell."

Delroy Lindo Quotes

"Pretty much from 1979 through 1988, the backbone of my career was the theater. Working on Broadway a couple of times, working off-Broadway, and also doing a lot of regional theater. Make no mistake, I lived very frugally. I had an apartment that was real cheap. I would get two or three jobs per season, and in between Id be on unemployment."

Louis Sachar Quotes

"I want kids to think that reading can be just as much fun and more so than TV or video games or whatever else they do. I think any other kind of message or morals that I might teach is secondary to first just enjoying a book."

Quotes About Swindling

"Everything predicted by the enemies of banks, in the beginning, is now coming to pass. We are to be ruined now by the deluge of bank paper. It is cruel that such revolutions in private fortunes should be at the mercy of avaricious adventurers, who, instead of employing their capital, if any they have, in manufactures, commerce, and other useful pursuits, make it an instrument to burden all the interchanges of property with their swindling profits, profits which are the price of no useful industry of theirs." - Author: Thomas Jefferson

Quotes About Societal Expectations

"...And thats the crucial element of life experience that so many of us avoid, you know. Trying something new, taking that single leap of faith into the utterly and absolutely unknown. Into the different. Those who take that leap are the ones who challenge whatever fate they might otherwise have. They fly in the face of societal expectations, determining for themselves who and what they will be and not allowing the bonds of birth, class, and bias to make that determination for them." - Author: Elizabeth George

Quotes About Seductive

"You have a better option?"He didnt. Neither did Sage. I borrowed Larry Steczynskis cell phone to call Rayna. Personally, I never answer the phone if I wont recognize the number. Rayna doesnt feel the same way; she sees an unknown caller as a doorway to a possible romance."Hello?" she answered seductively."Hey, its me.""Clea! Are you okay? Ive been phone-stalking you for days. What happened? Where have you been?""Sorry, I lost my cell. Everythings okay." Wow-that was easily the biggest lie Id ever told anyone in my life."How okay?" she asked playfully. "Did you meet someone amazing at Carnival and get swept off your feet?"I loved that those were the only two options for Rayna: Either something had gone horribly wrong, or Id gotten wrapped up in a wild, whirlwind romance.I glanced at Sage. "I did meet someone…""I knew it! I want to know everything.""Its kind of a long story.""Ive got nothing but time. Details!" - Author: Hilary Duff

Quotes About Snakes And Enemies

"Most of us would like to see our enemies defeated and punished, and it is an ironic (and gruesome) human truth that many of us unconsciously entertain the same feeling about our friends and the members of our family. For there is a curious ambivalence about the human soul: it can love and hate the same object at the same time with almost equal force. Society suspects this. It half realizes that civilization is perpetually menaced because of this primary hostility of men toward one another. Therefore, culture has to summon every possible reinforcement against these aggressive hatreds. Hence the ideal command to love ones neighbor as oneself. This commandment is the strongest defense against human hatred, and even though it is impossible to fulfill it completely, men cling to it. For they unconsciously realize that if this commandment were to be swept away, the world would be a place of chaos and desolation." - Author: Joshua Loth Liebman

Quotes About Nothing Compares

"Even if we didnt have you, the years I was able to spend with him are well worth the price of this pain. These moments, these are the ones you cling to, because it may hurt to send him away, but nothing compares to having him back. It makes you more thankful for what you have, more aware of just how precious it is" - Author: Rebecca Yarros

Quotes About Mountebank

"...while hiding in plain sight in Belgrade, undercover as a New Age mountebank, Karadžić frequented a bar called Mad House - Luda kuća. Mad House offered weekly gusle-accompanied performances of Serbian epic poetry; wartime pictures of him and General Ratko Mladić, the Bosnian Serbs military leader (now on trial in The Hague), proudly hung on the walls. A local newspaper claimed that, on at least one occasion, Karadžić performed an epic poem in which he himself featured as the main hero, undertaking feats of extermination. Consider the horrible postmodernism of the situation: an undercover war criminal narrating his own crimes in decasyllabic verse, erasing his personality so that he could assert it more forcefully and heroically." - Author: Aleksandar Hemon

Quotes About Amusing

"I believe I also said I would kill you if I ever saw you again.""Yeah, well…" Jackal shrugged and nodded to Zeke. "Get in line behind the little bloodsack over there. Although, really, you should be the one at the top of his list. Its kind of amusing, really. That he has no idea who you are, what youve done." - Author: Julie Kagawa

Quotes About Famous Tacos

"As my grandfather once famously shouted, in a drunken stupor, "You cant have fish tacos if you still have the hook in your mouth!" And while I have no idea what he meant, or how its relevant, I tell that story to any indigenous Mexican I meet who doesnt speak English. Interestingly, they offer the wisest response possible: they simply nod and smile." - Author: Jarod Kintz
