Quotes About Funny Markets

Quotes About Protecting

"Our system was not set up to for the government to be able to do with a mans kingdom what they want. It was set up to protect that mans kingdom, to allow him to feel that his borders, no matter how great or small, would always be secure and that he would always be allowed to defend them. The Supreme Court took that right away with their eminent domain ruling back in 2005. The governments have taken advantage of that eminent domain ruling, and you, the media, have failed at protecting citizens." - Author: Tit Elingtin

Quotes About Love Doctor Who

"Id say that the quantity of boredom, if boredom is measurable, is much greater today than it once was. Because the old occupations, at least most of them, were unthinkable without a passionate involvement: the peasants in love with their land; my grandfather, the magician of beautiful tables; the shoemakers who knew every villagers feet by heart; the woodsmen; the gardeners; probably even the soldiers killed with passion back then. The meaning of life wasnt an issue, it was there with them, quite naturally in their workshops, in their fields. Each occupation had created its own mentality, its own way of being. A doctor would think differently from a peasant, a soldier would behave differently from a teacher. Today were all alike, all of us bound together by our shared apathy toward our work. That very apathy has become a passion. The one great collective passion of our time." - Author: Milan Kundera

Quotes About Whispers Of Love

"... and we will shadeOurselves whole summers by a river glade;And I will tell thee stories of the sky,And breathe thee whispers of its minstrelsy,My happy love will overwing all bounds!O let me melt into thee! let the soundsOf our close voices marry at their birth;Let us entwine hoveringly!" - Author: John Keats

Quotes About Whats Meant To Be

"Conceive the condition of the human mind if all propositions whatsoever were self-evident except one, which was to become self-evident at the close of a summers day, but in the meantime might be the subject of question, of hypothesis, of debate. Art and philosophy, literature and science, would fasten like bees on that one proposition which had the honey of probability in it, and be the more eager because their enjoyment would end with sunset. Our impulses, our spiritual activities, no more adjust themselves to the idea of their future nullity, than the beating of our heart, or the irritability of our muscles." - Author: George Eliot

Quotes About Judge Of Character

"For the first half of this century, High Court judges have been cautious to the point of timidity in expressing any criticism of governmental action; the independence of the judiciary has been of a decidedly subordinate character." - Author: Ferdinand Mount

Quotes About Cloning Animals

"As Jeremy Bentham had asked about animals well over two hundred years ago, the question was not whether they could reason or talk, but could they suffer? And yet, somehow, it seemed to take more imagination for humans to identify with animal suffering than it did to conceive of space flight or cloning or nuclear fusion. Yes, she was a fanatic in the eyes of most of the country. . .Mostly, however, she just lacked patience for people who wouldnt accept her belief that humans inflicted needless agony on the animals around them, and they did so in numbers that were absolutely staggering." - Author: Chris Bohjalian
