Quote Left How can I, that girl standing there, My attention fix On Roman or on Russian Or on Spanish politics? Quote Right
Quote Left The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars. Quote Right
Quote Left The only people for me are the mad ones. The ones who are mad to love, mad to talk, mad to be saved the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow Roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars. Quote Right
Quote Left And so we take a holiday, a vacation, to gain release from this bondage for a space, to stand back from the rush of things and breathe again. But a holiday is a respite, not a cure. The more we need holidays, the more certain it is that the disease has conquered us and not we it. More and more holidays just to get away from it all is a sure sign of a decaying civilization; it was one of the most obvious marks of the breakdown of the Roman empire. It is a symptom that we haven't learned how to live so as to re-create ourselves in our work instead of being sapped by it. A car should always be charging its battery as it runs. If it simply uses up without putting back, it has to go into dock to be recharged. It is not a sign that we are running particularly well if we are constantly needing to go into dock. Quote Right
Quote Left I believe in one God, and no more; and I hope for happiness beyond this life. I believe in the equality of man; and I believe that religious duties consist in doing justice, loving mercy, and endeavoring to make our fellow-creatures happy. But, lest it should be supposed that I believe in many other things in addition to these, I shall, in the progress of this work, declare the things I do not believe, and my reasons for not believing them. I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish church, by the Roman church, by the Greek church, by the Turkish church, by the Protestant church, nor by any church that I know of. My own mind is my own church. All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit. I do not mean by this declaration to condemn those who believe otherwise; they have the same right to their belief as I have to mine. But it is necessary to the happiness of man, that he be mentally faithful to himself. Infidelity does not consist in believing, or in disbelieving; it consists in professing to believe what he does not believe. Quote Right
Quote Left The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved...the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars. Quote Right
Quote Left And she (the Roman Catholic Church) may still exist in undiminished vigor, when some traveller from New Zealand shall, in the midst of a vast solitude, take his stand on a broken arch of London Bridge to sketch the ruins of St. Paul's. Quote Right
Quote Left Although every organized patriarchal religion works overtime to contribute its own brand of misogyny to the myth of woman-hate, woman-fear, and woman-evil, the Roman Catholic Church also carries the immense power of very directly affecting women's lives everywhere by its stand against birth control and abortion, and by its use of skillful and wealthy lobbies to prevent legislative change. It is an obscenity -- an all-male hierarchy, celibate or not, that presumes to rule on the lives and bodies of millions of women. Quote Right
Quote Left The feat of superbly imitating a muscle, as Michelangelo did, or a face, as Raphael did, created neither progress nor a hierarchy in art. Because these artists of the sixteenth century imitated human forms, they were not superior to the artists of the high periods of Egyptian, Chaldean, Indochinese, Roman, and Gothic art who interpreted and stylized form but did not imitate it. Quote Right
Quote Left The descendants of Holy Roman Empire monarchies became feeble-minded in the twentieth century, and after World War I had been done in by the d... Quote Right
Quote Left The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing but burn, burn, burn like fabulous roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars...' Quote Right
Quote Left ...with the black marble which gives the fireplace the air of a miniature family vault, to suggest early Victorian commercial respectability, belief in money, Bible fetichism, fear of hell always at war with fear of poverty, instinctive horror of the passionate character of art, love and Roman Catholic religion, and all the first fruits of plutocracy in the early generations of the industrial revolution. Quote Right
Quote Left Who is here so base that would be a bondman? If any, speak, for him have I offended. Who is here so rude that would not be a Roman? If any, sp... Quote Right
Quote Left A Roman divorced from his wife, being highly blamed by his friends, who demanded, Was she not chaste? Was she not fair? Was she not fruitful? holding out his shoe, asked them whether it was not new and well made. Yet, added he, none of you can tell where it pinches me. Quote Right
Quote Left We who have lived before railways were made belong to another world. It was only yesterday, but what a gulf between now and then! Then was the old world. Stage-coaches, more or less swift, riding-horses, pack-horses, highwaymen, knights in armor, Norman invaders, Roman legions, Druids, Ancient Britons painted blue, and so forth -- all these belong to the old period. But your railroad starts the new era, and we of a certain age belong to the new time and the old one. We who lived before railways, and survive out of the ancient world, are like Father Noah and his family out of the Ark. Quote Right
Quote Left Nero contrived all manners of punishments for the Christians that the most infernal imagination could design. In particular, he had some sewed up in skins of wild beasts, and then worried by dogs until they expired; and others dressed in shirts made stiff with wax, fixed to axletrees, and set on fire in his gardens, in order to illuminate the gardens. This persecution was general throughout the whole Roman Empire; but it rather increased than diminished the spirit of Christianity. Quote Right
Quote Left 'The drugs Prednisone and Vincristine are often hailed as 'curing' childhood leukemia.  Both drugs were rejected by the US National Cancer Institute as 'useless' on the basis of animal tests.  Prednisone was developed as a result of clinical observation of the effects of adrenal extract.  Vincristine is an alkaloid of 'Vincra Rosea', a type of periwinkle plant, and extracts of periwinkle were used in the Roman Empire to 'dry tumours' (Pliny).  They were eventually brought to clinical trials.  The children cured of leukemia owe their lives to clinical observations and trials - and not to the animal 'model'.' Quote Right
Quote Left I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish church, by the Roman church, by the Greek church, by the Turkish church, by the Protestant church, nor by any church that I know of. My own mind is my own church. Quote Right
Quote Left It is folly for an eminent person to think of escaping censure, and a weakness to be affected by it. All the illustrious persons of antiquity, and indeed of every age, have passed through this fiery persecution. There is no defense against reproach but obscurity; it is a kind of concomitant to greatness, as satires and invectives were an essential part of a Roman triumph. Quote Right
Quote Left Communism, my friend, is more than Marxism, just as Catholicism is more than the Roman Curia. There is a mystique as well as a politick. Catholics and Communists have committed great crimes, but at least they have not stood aside, like an established society, and been indifferent. I would rather have blood on my hands than water like Pilate. Quote Right
Quote Left 'If Steam has done nothing else, it has at least added a whole new Species to English Literature ... the booklets—the little thrilling roman... Quote Right
Quote Left Roman is a truly remarkable person. While working in my office, Roman showed tremendous dedication, intelligence and a real desire to give back to his community. No task was too small and no challenge too large for Roman to handle. He was a true asset to my office and my constituents. In a time when many pro athletes fail to live up to their commitments to their communities, Roman has represented the very best of the NFL both on and off the field. Quote Right
Quote Left Salvation lies with ourselves, for we live in a world that had been self-generated through the accidental coming together of atoms; particles of matter which move within an infinite variety, but without any overall purpose, goal, or design. Quote Right
Quote Left The various modes of worship, which prevailed in the Roman world, were all considered by the people as equally true by the philosopher, as equally false and by the magistrate, as equally useful. Quote Right
Quote Left When you are feeling depreciated, angry and drained, it is a sign that other people are not open to your energy. Quote Right
Quote Left A new era in the physiological investigation of linguistic sounds was opened up by X-ray photography. Quote Right
Quote Left I am an Epicurean. I consider the genuine (not the imputed) doctrines of Epicurus as containing everything rational in moral philosophy which Greek and Roman leave to us. Quote Right
Quote Left 'The first public protest against cruelty to animals, per Toynbee, a historian, was in 55 BC by the Roman people, to save the life of an elephant.' Quote Right
Quote Left Vices are character traits. Sins are specific acts of commission or omission. Once Judaism and Christianity adopted the concepts of vice and virtue from the Greek and Roman moralists, vices were often called sins and sins vices. The seven deadly Quote Right
Quote Left All comparisons between America's current place in the world and anything legitimately called an empire in the past reveal ignorance and confusion about any reasonable meaning of the concept empire, especially the comparison with the Roman Empire. Quote Right

Member Quotes About Roman

Quote Left Tenha uma mente nobre! Nosso próprio coração, e nunca as opiniões de outros sobre nós, constitui a verdadeira pessoa de honra. Está descrito por Tércio no livro Romanos, está dito por Jó: “a minha honra se renovava em mim, e o meu arco se reforçava na minha mão. Honra é o que você sabe sobre si mesmo e usa para fazer mais e mais. Tudo o mais é no máximo Reputação. Quote Right
Quote Left Honra. Honra é a sensação que nenhuma pessoa pode dar a outra. Honra é um presente do ser humano para si mesmo. Desde sempre a honra tem princípios.

Em Romanos 2: 13-16 se encontra a definição de honra . Quote Right

Quote Left A conversa, que grande poder tem a fala organizada em conversa.

Quote Left We are more convinced that Luther was right, and the Papal order was wrong, we have examined it by reading the content and through scrutiny, not of our weakness but by divine depth. The Pope would need a thousand arguments against one to convince many to throw away their Bibles which they concealed away from the Romanist before the reformation Quote Right
