Quote Left As with most fine things, chocolate has its season. There is a simple memory aid that you can use to determine whether it is the correct time to order chocolate dishes any month whose name contains the letter A, E, or U is the proper time for chocolate. Quote Right
Quote Left Were I called on to define, very briefly, the term Art, I should call it the reproduction of what the Senses perceive in Nature through the veil of the soul. The mere imitation, however accurate, of what is in Nature, entitles no man to the sacred name of Artist. Quote Right
Quote Left Do not say, 'It is morning,' and dismiss it with a name of yesterday. See it for the first time as a newborn child that has no name. Quote Right
Quote Left I always tell people that I became a writer not because I went to school but because my mother took me to the library. I wanted to become a writer so I could see my name in the card catalog. Quote Right
Quote Left Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame, With conquering limbs astride from land to land; Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame. "Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!" Quote Right

Quote Left It seems to me curious, not to say obscene and thoroughly terrifying, that it could occur to an association of human beings drawn together through need and chance and for profit into a company, an organ of journalism, to pry intimately into the lives of an undefended and appallingly damaged group of human beings, an ignorant and helpless rural family, for the purpose of parading the nakedness, disadvantage and humiliation of these lives before another group of human beings, in the name of science, of Quote Right
Quote Left Once on a yellow piece of paper with green lines he wrote a poem And he called if 'Chops' because that was the name of his dog And that's what it was all about And his teacher gave him an A and a gold star And his mother hung it on the kitchen door and read it to his aunts That was the year Father Tracy took all the kids to the zoo And he let them sing on the bus And his little sister was born with tiny toenails and no hair And his mother and father kissed a lot And the girl around the corner sent him a Valentine signed with a row of X's and he had to ask his father what the X's meant And his father always tucked him in bed at night And was always there to do it Once on a piece of white paper with blue lines he wrote a poem And he called it 'Autumn' because that was the name of the season And that's what it was all about And his teacher gave him an A and asked him to write more clearly And his mother never hung it on the kitchen door because of its new paint And the kids told him Father Tracy smoked cigars And left butts on the pews And sometimes they would burn holes That was the year his sister got glasses with thick lenses and black frames And the girl around the corner laughed when he asked her to go see Santa Claus And the kids told him why his mother and father kissed a lot And his father never tucked him in bed at night And his father got mad when he cried for him to do it Once on a paper torn from his notebook he wrote a poem And he called it 'Innocence: A Question' because that was the question about his girl And that's what it was all about And his professor gave him an A and a strange steady look And his mother never hung it on the kitchen door because he never showed her That was the year Father Tracy died And he forgot how the end of the Apostle's Creed went And he caught his sister making out on the back porch And his mother and father never kissed or even talked And the girl around the corner wore too much makeup That made him cough when he kissed her but he kissed her anyway because that was the thing to do And at three A.M. he tucked himself into bed his father snoring soundly That's why on the back of a brown paper bag he tried another poem And he called it 'Absolutely Nothing' Because that's what it was really all about And he gave himself an A and a slash on each damned wrist And he hung it on the bathroom door because this time he didn't think he could reach the kitchen Quote Right
Quote Left Sound, sound the clarion, fill the fife! To all the sensual world proclaim, One crowded hour of glorious life Is worth an age without a name. Quote Right
Quote Left All, or the greatest part of men that have aspired to riches or power, have attained thereunto either by force or fraud, and what they have by craft or cruelty gained, to cover the foulness of their fact, they call purchase, as a name more honest. Howsoever, he that for want of will or wit useth not those means, must rest in servitude and poverty. Quote Right
Quote Left Under the general name of Commodity, I rank all those advantages which our senses owe to nature. This, of course, is a benefit which is temporary and mediate, not ultimate, like its service to the soul. Yet although low, it is perfect in its kind, and is the only use of nature which all men apprehend. The misery of man appears like childish petulance, when we explore the steady and prodigal provision that has been made for his support and delight on this green ball which floats him through the heavens. What angels invented these splendid ornaments, these rich conveniences, this ocean of air above, this ocean of water beneath, this firmament of earth between? this zodiac of lights, this tent of dropping clouds, this striped coat of climates, this fourfold year? Beasts, fire, water, stones, and corn serve him. The field is at once his floor, his work-yard, his play-ground, his garden, and his bed. Quote Right
Quote Left Books, books, books had found the secret of a garret-room piled high with cases in my father's name; Piled high, packed large, --where, creeping in and out among the giant fossils of my past, like some small nimble mouse between the ribs of a mastodon, I nibbled here and there at this or that box, pulling through the gap, in heats of terror, haste, victorious joy, the first book first. And how I felt it beat under my pillow, in the morning's dark. An hour before the sun would let me read! My books! Quote Right
Quote Left Genius is a bend in the creek where bright water has gathered, and which mirrors the trees, the sky and the banks. It just does that because it is there and the scenery is there. Talent is a fine mirror with a silver frame, with the name of the owner engraved on the back. Quote Right
Quote Left Let my name stand among those who are willing to bear ridicule and reproach for the truth's sake, and so earn some right to rejoice when the victory is won. Quote Right
Quote Left Dame Poverty gave me my name, And Pain godfathered me. Quote Right
Quote Left I certainly do not consider myself permanently dedicated to a crusade for peace and I am beginning to see the uselessness and absurdity of getting too involved in a 'peace movement.' The chief reason why I have spoken out was that I felt I owed it to my conscience to do so. There are certain things that have to be clearly stated. I had in mind particularly the danger arising from the fact that some of the most belligerent people in this country are Christians, on the one hand fundamentalist Protestants and on the other certain Catholics. They both tend to appeal to the bomb to do a 'holy' work of destruction in the name of Christ and Christian truth. This is completely intolerable and the truth has to be stated. I cannot in conscience remain indifferent. Quote Right
Quote Left The common good of a collective -- a race, a class, a state -- was the claim and justification of every tyranny ever established over men. Every major horror of history was committed in the name of an altruistic motive. Has any act of selfishness ever equaled the carnage perpetrated by disciples of altruism? Does the fault lie in men's hypocrisy or in the nature of the principle? The most dreadful butchers were the most sincere. The believed in the perfect society reached through the guillotine and the firing squad. Nobody questioned their right to murder since they were murdering for an altruistic purpose. It was accepted that man must be sacrificed for other men. Actors change, but the course of the tragedy remains the same. A humanitarian who starts with the declarations of love for mankind and ends with a sea of blood. It goes on and will go on so long as men believe that an action is good if it is unselfish. That permits the altruist to act and forces his victims to bear it. The leaders of collectivist movements ask nothing of themselves. But observe the results. Quote Right
Quote Left We say that slavery has vanished from European civilization, but this is not true. Slavery still exists, but now it applies only to women and its name is prostitution. Quote Right
Quote Left Haven't you learned anything from that guy that gives those sermons in church? Captain What's-his-name. We live in a society of laws, why do you think I took you to see all those Police Academy movies? For fun? Well I didn't hear anybody laughing! Did you Quote Right
Quote Left O rose, who dares to name thee? No longer roseate now, nor soft, nor sweet, But pale, and hard, and dry, as stubblewheat,-- Kept seven years in a drawer, thy titles shame thee. Quote Right
Quote Left The notion of this universe, its heavens, hells, and everything within it, as a great dream dreamed by a single being in which all the dream characters are dreaming too, has in India enchanted and shaped the entire civilization. The ultimate dreamer is Vishnu floating on the cosmic Milky Ocean, couched upon the coils of the abyssal serpent Ananta, the meaning of whose name is Unending. In the foreground stand the five Pandava brothers, heroes of the epic Mahabharata, with Draupadi, their wife: allegorically , she is the mind and they are the five senses. They are those whom the dream is dreaming. Eyes open, ready and willing to fight, the youths address themselves to this world of light in which we stand regarding them, where objects appear to be distinct from each other, and an Aristotelian logic prevails, and A is not not-A . Behind them a dream-door has opened, however, to an inward, backward dimension where a vision emerges against darkness... Quote Right
Quote Left The author of the Iliad is either Homer or, if not Homer, somebody else of the same name. Quote Right
Quote Left To name an object is to deprive a poem of three-fourths of its pleasure, which consists in a little-by-little guessing game; the ideal is to suggest. Quote Right
Quote Left Let us be very careful not to fall into the trap of the world. The world views things only relative to man and to self. The Word of God views things relative to the Father, Son, and Spirit. Mankind is not the center of all things. No matter how great anyone's name might become, it is still far behind His. Our name comes from His life the name of our Lord comes from the resurrection--the event unique to Him. The world has a problem it seeks to honor, uphold, exonerate and generally praise itself. Our place and the place of the entire world system is to praise and exalt God. When people of the Bible caught a glimpse of Him, their lives were changed. Perhaps our lives remain stagnate because we do not spend enough time looking at Him. Quote Right
Quote Left And we, inhabitants of the great coral of the Cosmos, believe the atom (which still we cannot see) to be full matter, whereas, it too, like everything else, is but an embroidery of voids in the Void, and we give the name of being, dense and even eternal, to that dance of inconsistencies, that infinite extension that is identified with absolute Nothingness and that spins from its own non-being the illusion of everything. Quote Right
Quote Left I started in to cry and call his name, ... Quote Right
Quote Left My birth certificate read Dorothy May Kinnicutt, but, lest you think that the name Sister has any ecclesiastical significance, let me hasten to point out that it was immediately hung on me by my three-year-old brother, Frankie. Quote Right
Quote Left Chaos is a name for any order that produces confusion in our minds. Quote Right
Quote Left I believe no satirist could breathe this air. If another Juvenal or Swift could rise up among us tomorrow, he would be hunted down. If you have any knowledge of our literature, and can give me the name of any man, American born and bred, who has anatomized our follies as a people, and not as this or that party; and who has escaped the foulest and most brutal slander, the most inveterate hatred and intolerant pursuit; it will be a strange name in my ears, believe me. Quote Right
Quote Left Regard your good name as the richest jewel you can possibly be possessed of - for credit is like fire; when once you have kindled it you may easily preserve it, but if you once extinguish it, you will find it an arduous task to rekindle it again. The way to gain a good reputation is to endeavor to be what you desire to appear. Quote Right

Quote Left A black ringlet curls to lie at the nape of her neck, glistening with sweat in the evaporate moonlight... This is what I remember now that I cannot forget. And tonight, if I have forgotten her name, I remember... rigid wire and white lace half-impressed in her flesh, our soft cries, like regret ...the enameled white clips of her bra strap still inscribe dimpled marks that my kisses erase... now that I have forgotten her face. ('The Effects of Memory' by Michael R. Burch) Quote Right

Quote Left Desde sempre tudo é possível de permanecer vivo eternamente. Cada momento da vida ou a vida em um trabalho deve tornar a emoção da sua execução junto com seus elementos. A aparência do trabalho deve se tornar a própria mudança transformativa em cada momento. Deve entregar àquela pessoa que pensa assim sobre o trabalho e a vida um gostinho de sua Eternidade. Quote Right
Quote Left Desde sempre tudo o que se faz e aquilo que se obtém é baseado nas escolhas que a pessoa faz. Nunca são relacionamentos anteriores, sus trabalhos, a economia, o clima, uma discussão ou sua idade que orienta cada pessoa. Só a própria pessoa pode ser comprometida por todas as decisões e escolhas que fizer. Dia a dia de sempre. Nunca existe limites para a ascensão de cada pessoa, e para todas e cada uma abre-se o mais alto. Aqui, é apenas a sua escolha pessoal que decide. Quote Right
Quote Left O fogo e a luz sempre continuam. As pessoas podem esfriar ou perder o brilho. Quando as pessoas escolhem ficar longe do fogo dos relacionamentos o fogo continua a aquecer, mas as pessoas esfriam. Quando as pessoas se afastam da luz, a luz continua a brilhar em si mesma apenas as pessoas ficam no escuro. Este também é o caso quando as pessoas se afastam uma das outras. Quote Right
Quote Left Nasceu um novo sistema econômico. Quem viver verá. O sistema econômico que já está aí entre as Gerações millennials a “Zsss” é um sistema forte e capaz de flutuar entre uma parte do dia no mercado capitalista e na outra parte do dia na economia compartilhada e de relacionamentos. É o novo sistema que encontra valor na interação com a economia de compartilhamento em muitos níveis. Agora, à beira de um futuro que pode representar um tremendo salto à frente para a humanidade. Quem viver vai ver. Quote Right
Quote Left A força de uma pessoa pode ser medida ao observar se a pessoa tem coragem de chorar em um momento de luto? Tem compaixão de não caçar um animal? Em seus relacionamentos com as outras pessoas sempre faz e deixa mensagens positivas? Quando se percebe que uma pessoa diz sim a questão sabemos que a pessoa é forte. A verdadeira Força é alimentada pela bondade e gentileza associada à inteligência, compreensão, tolerância, justiça, educação e alta moralidade. Quote Right
Quote Left Compartilhar, desacelerar e tornar a construção de relacionamentos tão importante quanto a construção de projetos é o máximo que se alcança como ser humano. Tudo se resumo à compreensão de que o negócio é construir relacionamentos! Se você quer fazer mais dinheiro e desfrutar de mais estilo de vida, precisa construir relacionamentos melhores do que a próxima pessoa! Quote Right
Quote Left A cada dia de nossas vidas, fortalecemos laços de relacionamento quando fazemos depósitos no banco de memória das pessoas à nossa volta.

Quote Left A única diferença entre você e Deus é que você se esqueceu de que é divino. Algumas pessoas nunca têm ideia do mal ao progresso que estão fazendo com “esse esquecimento”, e muitas delas são realmente boas nisso. Tendo sido criados à imagem e semelhança de Deus, ao contrário das árvores ou flores ou do fogo ou da lua, somos plenamente humanos quando amamos, perdoamos e trabalhamos para fazer a cada dia mais e mais de tudo aquilo que em princípio pode parecer impossível Quote Right
