Christopher Loren Quotes

"I believe emotional suppression fueled by a shamed imagination lies at the root of societys ailments. It is the believing leaders of religion that keep the "denial circus" going decade after decade. We have, for too long, supported this tyranny of delusion. We have given the guru and the preacher the stage one too many times. It is time to wake up and replace the preacher with the human teacher—a human who is the intelligence of their whole organism."

Jose Rizal Quotes

"The people do not complain because they have no voice; do not move because they are lethargic, and you say that they do not suffer because you have not seen their hearts bleed."

Mohammad Qutub Quotes

"A man engrossed in sensual pleasures may form a mistaken out lookupon life andthink that he enjoys life more than others do.

DHerelle Quotes

"If these dHerelle bodies were really genes, fundamentally like our chromosome genes, they would give us an utterly new angle from which to attack the gene problem. They are filterable, to some extent isolable, can be handled in test-tubes, and their properties, as shown by their effects on the bacteria, can then be studied after treatment. It would be very rash to call these bodies genes, and yet at present we must confess that there is no distinction known between the genes and them. Hence we can not categorically deny that perhaps we may be able to grind genes in a mortar and cook them in a beaker after all. Must we geneticists become bacteriologists, physiological chemists and physicists, simultaneously with being zoologists and botanists? Let us hope so."

Quotes About Nut

"I open the orangutans door and set a pan of fruits, vegetables, and nuts on the floor. As I close it, her long arm reaches through the bars. She points at an orange in another pan. That? You want that? She continues to point, blinking at me with close-set eyes. Her features are concave, her face a wide platter fringed with red hair. Shes the most outrageous and beautiful thing Ive ever seen. Here, I say, handing her the orange. You can have it. She takes it and sets it on the floor. Then she reaches out again. After several seconds of serious misgivings, I hold out my hand. She wraps her long fingers around it, then lets go. She sits on her haunches and peels her orange. I stare in amazement. She was thanking me." - Author: Sara Gruen

Quotes About Life Going Good

"You scared me the moment I saw you, and I think its because I knew, I just knew, I was going to fall in love you. I didnt know our worlds were already intertwined, but my heart somehow knew it belonged to you from the start. I didnt believe a pain so deep existed while we were apart, but I also didnt believe a love like ours existed. Youve shown me it does. Youve shown me good when there was bad. Youve given me pleasure above all of my pain. Youve given me life when I thought I was dead." - Author: Gail McHugh

Not long afterward, he himself died in a phlegmone (fire, or high fever), which I presume was pneumonia." - Author: C.G. Jung

Quotes About Fatherly Love

"Judgment, then, is not an impersonal, legalistic process. It is a matter of love, and it is something we choose for ourselves. Nor is punishment a vindictive act. Gods "curses" are not expressions of hatred, but of fatherly love and discipline. Like medicinal ointment, they hurt in order to heal. They impose suffering that is remedial, restorative, and redemptive. Gods wrath is an expression of His love for His wayward children." - Author: Scott Hahn

Quotes About Deeper Understanding

"There was Eru, the One, who in Arda is called Ilúvatar; and he made first the Ainur, the Holy Ones, that were the offspring of his thought, and they were with him before aught else was made. And he spoke to them, propounding to them themes of music; and they sang before him, and he was glad. But for a long while they sang only each alone, or but few together, while the rest hearkened; for each comprehended only that part of the mind of Ilúvatar from which he came, and in the understanding of their brethren they grew but slowly. Yet ever as they listened they came to deeper understanding, and increased in unison and harmony." - Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
