Siddhartha Mukherjee Quotes

"In an essay titled A View From the Front Line, Jencks described her experience with cancer as like being woken up midflight on a jumbo jet and then thrown out with a parachute into a foreign landscape without a map:"There you are, the future patient, quietly progressing with other passengers toward a distant destination when, astonishingly (Why me?) a large hole opens in the floor next to you. People in white coats appear, help you into a parachute and — no time to think — out you go."You descend. You hit the ground....But where is the enemy? What is the enemy? What is it up to?...No road. No compass. No map. No training. Is there something you should know and dont?"The white coats are far, far away, strapping others into their parachutes. Occasionally they wave but, even if you ask them, they dont know the answers. They are up there in the Jumbo, involved with parachutes, not map-making."

Roberto Goizueta Quotes

"If you take risks, you may fail. But if you do not take risks, you will surely fail. The greatest risk of all is to do nothing."

Joyce G Baldwin Quotes

"Is it a time for you, you I say, to dwell in your roofed-in houses? (Haggai 1:4). The reply might have been that it was unreasonable to expect anyone to live in a roofless house, but the question made its point. What worth did they set on their God, when they left His Temple in ruins?"

John Farndon Quotes

"Its this oppressive, aggressive and exclusice side to cool that makes me declare ardently, no Im not cool. I rebel against the notion of a standard or style or attitude that oppresses those that dont fit in- that excludes and diminishes the vulnerable, the shy, the uninformed and the uncofident. I rebel, too, against the dominance of a set of values which seems so geared towards the superficial and ephemeral. And I rebel against the idea of being cool if it means being detatched, distant, univolved, dismissive, unresponsive, lacking in emotional honesty- in fact, lacking in all the things that make the world a happier, more sympathetic place."

Tim Ryan Quotes

"It is like our foreign policy has attention deficit disorder."

Natalie Du Toit Quotes

"Even when bad things happen you have to try to use those bad things in a positive manner and really just take the positive out of it."

Quotes About Classique

"Dire, comme le font Lewis et ses imitateurs, que toutes ces opinions ne font quépouser des "causes à la mode" ne répond pas à la question de savoir pourquoi, par exemple, tant de spécialistes de lislam étaient et sont encore régulièrement consultés par des gouvernements, pour lesquels il travaille activement, et dont le dessein se résume à lexploitation, la domination et lagression ouverte du monde islamique ; ; ou pourquoi tant de spécialistes de lislam - comme Lewis lui-même - estiment de leur propre chef quil fait parti de leur devoir dorganiser lattaque contre les peuples musulmans et arabes contemporains tout en prétendant que la culture arabe "classique" peut néanmoins faire lobjet détudes désintéressées." - Author: Edward W. Said

Quotes About Intimacy With God

"oaking" seems like a crazy word in an intimacy book. Yet that is exactly what you want to do in your relational time with Him, you want to "soak in and soak up" His presence, "soak in and soak up" His love. Soaking is positioning yourself before God for the sole purpose of experiencing His presence and His love for you." - Author: Linda Boone

Quotes About Ceasing The Day

"And dieting, I discovered, was another form of disordered eating, just as anorexia and bulimia similarly disrupt the natural order of eating. "Ordered" eating is the practice of eating when you are hungry and ceasing to eat when your brain sends the signal that your stomach is full. ... All people who live their lives on a diet are suffering. If you can accept your natural body weight and not force it to beneath your bodys natural, healthy weight, then you can live your life free of dieting, of restriction, of feeling guilty every time you eat a slice of your kids birthday cake." - Author: Portia de Rossi

Quotes About Madness In Literature

"The fallacy is one of the fifty fallacies that come from the modern madness for biological or bodily metaphors. It is convenient to speak of the Social Organism, just as it is convenient to speak of the British Lion. But Britain is no more an organism than Britain is a lion. The moment we begin to give a nation the unity and simplicity of an animal, we begin to think wildly. Because every man is a biped, fifty men are not a centipede. This has produced, for instance, the gaping absurdity of perpetually talking about "young nations" and "dying nations," as if a nation had a fixed and physical span of life. Thus people will say that Spain has entered a final senility; they might as well say that Spain is losing all her teeth. Or people will say that Canada should soon produce a literature; which is like saying that Canada must soon grow a new moustache." - Author: G.K. Chesterton

Quotes About Feeling Meaningless

"Life is a misery, death an uncertainty. Suppose it steals suddenly upon me, in what state shall I leave this world? When can I learn what I have here neglected to learn? Or is it true that death will cut off and put an end to all care and all feeling? This is something to be inquired into.But no, this cannot be true. It is not for nothing, it is not meaningless that all over the world is displayed the high and towering authority of the Christian faith. Such great and wonderful things would never have been done for us by God, if the life of the soul were to end with the death of the body. Why then do I delay? Why do I not abandon my hopes of this world and devote myself entirely to the search for God and for the happy life?" - Author: Augustine of Hippo

Quotes About Selfish Woman

"She refuses to support the slogan - Men are equal to women - if this translates to her femininity being faded out or confused by trying to please a selfish idea of anyone wanting a woman to be both herself and a man." - Author: Gloria D. Gonsalves
