Being Equal quotes by Martha Stewart
#2. Buddhism teaches us not to want things, not to avoid things, not to be upset by the loss. In the I Ching, there's a hexagram that says, "Be like the sun at midday". View all things as being equal. - Author: Frederick Lenz
Being Equal quotes by Frederick Lenz
#3. The smaller the planets are, they are, other things being equal, of so much the greater density; for so the powers of gravity on their several surfaces come nearer to equality.

Being Equal quotes by Isaac Newton
#4. There was a general murmuring, no real words, nothing that would get anyone into trouble if the piper turned nasty, but a muttering indicating, in a general sense, without wishing to cause umbrage, and seeing everyone's point of view, and taking one thing with another, and all things being equal, that people would like to see the boy given a chance, if it's all right with you, no offence meant. - Author: Terry Pratchett
Being Equal quotes by Terry Pratchett

Being Equal quotes by Robert Green Ingersoll
#6. Lettuce, greens and celery, though much eaten, are worse than cabbage, being equally indigestible without the addition of condiments. Besides, the lettuce contains narcotic properties.

Being Equal quotes by William Alcott

Being Equal quotes by John Ridley
#8. Physical injury carries with it the fallout of mental injury, the damage never being equal to the traumatic event. E does not equal MC2 in this particular case. The logic of emotion carries no logic and hurt is an emotional value. I'm unsure what that value equals. - Author: Carla R. Herrera
Being Equal quotes by Carla R. Herrera
#9. Liberalism is the ideology at the center of conservative arguments against affirmative action and equal opportunity. By proposing that, all things being equal, everyone has the same opportunity to compete in the U.S. marketplace, success is determined by how hard someone works and not by their economic class, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, or race. Ethnic and racial identities are to be assimilated, lost, and erased through the celebrated "melting pot" of U.S. culture. Liberalism thus devalues the importance of communitarian experiences and social identities as determinants or barriers to individual success. Instead, it proposes that all individuals are fundamentally equal and that, regardless of their social identity, everyone can control his or her fate through hard work, learned skills, and acquired education- the foundational myth of a U.S. meritocracy. - Author: Isabel Molina-Guzman
Being Equal quotes by Isabel Molina-Guzman
#10. It is very true that I have said that I considered Napoleon's presence in the field equal to forty thousand men in the balance. This is a very loose way of talking; but the idea is a very different one from that of his presence at a battle being equal to a reinforcement of forty thousand men. - Author: Duke Of Wellington
Being Equal quotes by Duke Of Wellington
#11. Life's lessons come from unexpected places. We cannot afford to allow prejudices to shut out God's blessings. Being equal is based on seeing equal. It is seated in each individual's willingness to claim their own equality despite all evidence to the contrary and all talk by others who dare to question their value. - Author: Melba Pattillo Beals
Being Equal quotes by Melba Pattillo Beals
#12. Thus far I am a standing mark of the weakness of great men in their vice, that value not squandering away immense wealth upon the most worthless creatures; or, to sum it up in a word, they raise the value of the object which they pretend to pitch upon by their fancy; I say, raise the value of it at their own expense; give vast presents for a ruinous favour, which is so far from being equal to the price that nothing will at last prove more absurd than the cost men are at to purchase their own destruction. - Author: Daniel Defoe
Being Equal quotes by Daniel Defoe
#13. We who are liberal and progressive know that the poor are our equals in every sense except that of being equal to us. - Author: Lionel Trilling
Being Equal quotes by Lionel Trilling

Being Equal quotes by N. R. Narayana Murthy

Being Equal quotes by David Mamet

Being Equal quotes by Helen Fielding
#20. Unfortunately Women these days, complain A LOT about "wanting" to be equal to men, and insist that they "are" equal to men. However, when it comes to paying the check at the restaurant, paying for the wedding, or handling any other expenses, suddenly they forget the whole equality phenomenon. If you ask women why, they will just tell you that "I was with a MAN, a real man doesn't let a woman touch her purse, a real man takes care of his lady"...
((So they know the difference between a "Man" and a "Woman"... ))

- Man spends, man takes responsibility, man has control...
- Woman gets taken care of, women expects man to take responsibility, woman is under control!

If you are a woman who "WANTS" to be equal to men, if you are a woman who wants to be "IN CONTROL" rather than being "UNDER CONTROL", start by being equal in doing the hard things first, don't let your boyfriend pay when you go out with him for a year or two, just like he did for you, don't let him pick you up at your home, drive everyday and pick him up to go out for a year or two, if you think it's so hard to do so, keep quite about it... you're not ready to be equal... You're just adequate enough to be taken care of... to be spent for... - Author: Hamidreza Bagheri
Being Equal quotes by Hamidreza Bagheri
#21. History has shown time and time again that
there is no such thing as all things being equal. That is why Jefferson
wrote that our inalienable rights were life, liberty, and the pursuit of
happiness. Nothing is guaranteed in life, especially happiness. - Author: Ziad K. Abdelnour
Being Equal quotes by Ziad K. Abdelnour
#22. All things being equal, letting people make decisions for themselves will produce smarter outcomes, collectively, than relying on government planners. - Author: James Surowiecki
Being Equal quotes by James Surowiecki
#23. Strength is an excellent example of a physical characteristic that drives improvement in other athletic parameters. More strength means more power, more endurance, better coordination, and better everything else. This is why, all other things being equal, the stronger athlete is the better athlete. - Author: Mark Rippetoe
Being Equal quotes by Mark Rippetoe
#24. [T]here is a methodological bias in favor of taking natural discourse literally, other things being equal. For example, unless there are clear reasons for construing discourse as ambiguous, elliptical, or involving special idioms, we should not so construe it. - Author: Tyler Burge
Being Equal quotes by Tyler Burge
#25. You know I really don't like to think about the fact that I'm a girl in relation to the music industry. I was just a kid who wrote down thoughts to organize her brain and that turned into music, like any other writer or musician ... so, I happen to be a girl. I don't consider that part of it really.. It may disappoint some feminists out there that I don't want to harp on women and men being equal. - Author: Lacey Mosley
Being Equal quotes by Lacey Mosley
#26. I think I benefited from being equal parts ambitious and curious. And of the two, curiosity has served me best. - Author: Michael J. Fox
Being Equal quotes by Michael J. Fox
#27. Occam's Razor. My father had often repeated that one to me. Occam's Razor states the following: "Other things being equal, a simpler explanation is better than a more complex one." Put more succinctly, the simplest answer was usually the best one. So - Author: Harlan Coben
Being Equal quotes by Harlan Coben
#28. Of course present knowledge of psychology is nearer to zero than to complete perfection, and its applications to teaching must therefore be often incomplete, indefinite, and insecure. The application of psychology to teaching is more like that of botany and chemistry to farming than like that of physiology and pathology to medicine. Anyone of good sense can farm fairly well without science, and anyone of good sense can teach fairly well without knowing and applying psychology. Still, as the farmer with the knowledge of the applications of botany and chemistry to farming is, other things being equal, more successful than the farmer without it, so the teacher will, other things being equal, be the more successful who can apply psychology, the science of human nature, to the problems of the school. (pp. 9-10) - Author: Edward Lee Thorndike
Being Equal quotes by Edward Lee Thorndike

Being Equal quotes by William Of Ockham
#31. Economically, men and women almost form two castes; all things being equal, the former have better jobs, higher wages, and greater chances to succeed than their new female competitors; they occupy many more places in industry, in politics, and so forth, and they hold the most important positions. - Author: Simone De Beauvoir
Being Equal quotes by Simone De Beauvoir
#32. By keeping labor supply down, immigration policy tends to keep wages high. Let us underline this basic principle: Limitation of the supply of any grade of labor relative to all other productive factors can be expected to raise its wage rate; and increase in supply will, other things being equal, tend to depress wage rates. - Author: Paul Samuelson
Being Equal quotes by Paul Samuelson
#33. There should be, methinks, as little merit in loving a woman for her beauty as in loving a man for his prosperity; both being equally subject to change. - Author: Alexander Pope
Being Equal quotes by Alexander Pope

Being Equal quotes by Bob Burg
#35. A man who is morally clean, other things being equal, has in every instance, greater agility, greater capacity, and greater endurance by far than the man who is not. While the latter is wasting his creative energies in useless pleasures, as well as in disease producing habits, the former is turning all of his creative energy into ability and genius, and the result is evident. - Author: Christian D. Larson
Being Equal quotes by Christian D. Larson
#36. All other things being equal, greens break to the west. - Author: Ben Hogan
Being Equal quotes by Ben Hogan
#37. Size matters in fiction, but so does lack of size. Everything else being equal, fat novels tend to be perceived as serious, very thin ones as more honest, more real. Writers address these age-old expectations by filling their big books with philosophy and cramming their little ones with feeling. - Author: Walter Kirn
Being Equal quotes by Walter Kirn
#38. Of everything that man erects and builds in his urge for living nothing is in my eyes better and more valuable than bridges. They are more important than houses, more sacred than shrines. Belonging to everyone and being equal to everyone, useful, always built with a sense, on the spot where most human needs are crossing, they are more durable than other buildings and they do not serve for anything secret or bad. - Author: Ivo Andric
Being Equal quotes by Ivo Andric
#39. Success surely comes with conscience in the long run, other things being equal. Capacity and fidelity are commercially profitable qualities. - Author: Henry Ward Beecher
Being Equal quotes by Henry Ward Beecher
#40. If a man had begun to hate an object of his love, so that love is thoroughly destroyed, he will, causes being equal, regard it with more hatred than if he had never loved it, and his hatred will be in proportion to the strength of his former love. - Author: Baruch Spinoza
Being Equal quotes by Baruch Spinoza
#41. Survival requires a dose of madness - what cynics call "hoping against hope" - just like art does; you conjure your future from white space, locate the hidden person, yourself, against this unfamiliar background, peering through grief and loss at something greater. "Survivors are more urgently rooted in life than most of us," observed one Holocaust expert. "Their will to survive is one with the thrust of life itself, as stubborn as the upsurge of spring. A strange exultation fills [their] soul, a sense of being equal to the worst. - Author: Mark Matousek
Being Equal quotes by Mark Matousek
#42. All things being equal, people will do business with a friend; all things being unequal, people will still do business with a friend. - Author: Mark McCormack
Being Equal quotes by Mark McCormack
#43. Then she jerked back with a siren's smile that made his confidence falter. "Well." She tapped her chin. "That was a decent kiss, all things being equal." She pressed her hand to her chest. "My heart is, if not quite racing, then heading into a quick walk. But I need a thermometer to determine if and how high my body heated. I shall just go--"

"Don't you dare." He caught her by the arm as she was on the verge of fleeing. "You know bloody well that you responded to that kiss."

With a suspicious glee in her eyes, she tugged her arm from his grip. "I'm not saying I didn't respond-- just that I didn't respond to any overwhelming degree. But it was a good kiss, I suppose. Better than some, not as good as others."

"What the hell do you mean? How many chaps have you kissed in the last nine years, anyway?"

"No more than you've kissed women, I should imagine."

"My God."

"But don't worry-- I don't think the average woman would complain about your kissing. You're perfectly competent."

Competent? Bloody insolent chit. Even knowing she was trying to provoke him didn't ease his wounded pride. "Perhaps we should try again."

Being Equal quotes by Sabrina Jeffries

Being Equal quotes by Bjorn Ulvaeus

Being Equal quotes by William Clay Ford, Jr.
#46. Nobody is more inferior than those who insist on being equal. - Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
Being Equal quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#47. Like Dvoretsky, I think that (all other things being equal), the analytical method of studying chess must give you a colossal advantage over the chess pragmatist, and that there can be no certainty in chess without analysis. I personally acquired these views from my sessions with Mikhail Botvinnik, and they laid the foundations of my chess-playing life. - Author: Garry Kasparov
Being Equal quotes by Garry Kasparov
#48. All things being equal, attitude wins. All things not being equal, attitude sometimes still wins. - Author: John C. Maxwell
Being Equal quotes by John C. Maxwell
#49. Parents with dependents are somehow thought to count for more. If, for example, there is some scarce resource - a donor kidney perhaps - and of the two potential recipients one is a parent of young children and one is not, the parent, all things being equal, will likely be favoured. To let a parent die is not only to thwart that person's preference to be saved, but also the preferences of his or her children that their parent be saved. It is quite true, of course, that the death of the parent will harm more people, but there is nonetheless something to be said against favouring parents. Increasing one's value by having children might be like increasing one's value by taking hostages. - Author: David Benatar
Being Equal quotes by David Benatar
#50. All things being equal, if we could simulate the same scenario, he has a lot more difficult task. He's elected to swim six individual events, as opposed to what I elected to do, which was four. - Author: Mark Spitz
Being Equal quotes by Mark Spitz
#51. Generally religion and puritanism prevail in periods when the laws are feeble and morals must bear the burden of maintaining social order; skepticism and paganism (other factors being equal) progress as the rising power of law and government permits the decline of the church, the family, and morality without basically endangering the stability of the state. - Author: Will Durant
Being Equal quotes by Will Durant
#52. All things being equal, the simplest solution tends to be the best one. - Author: William Of Ockham
Being Equal quotes by William Of Ockham
#53. All things being equal, why not be married to a rich man? (Somewhere, Hannah thinks, there must be a needlepoint pillow asking this very question in a cleverer way.) - Author: Curtis Sittenfeld
Being Equal quotes by Curtis Sittenfeld
#54. Money is different from all other commodities: other things being equal, more shoes, or more discoveries of oil or copper benefit society, since they help alleviate natural scarcity. But once a commodity is established as a money on the market, no more money at all is needed. Since the only use of money is for exchange and reckoning, more dollars or pounds or marks in circulation cannot confer a social benefit: they will simply dilute the exchange value of every existing dollar or pound or mark. - Author: Murray Rothbard
Being Equal quotes by Murray Rothbard
#55. Other conditions being equal, if one force is hurled against another ten times its size, the result will be the flight of the former. - Author: Sun Tzu
Being Equal quotes by Sun Tzu
#56. Especially in entertainment geared toward young people, the women are much stronger than they used to be. There's not really the damsel in distress anymore. I think the stereotype still possibly lives in different genre pictures but, in entertainment for the younger generation, they're used to women being equal and being strong. I think if you don't portray that, it would be kind of weird. - Author: Jessica Alba
Being Equal quotes by Jessica Alba
#57. Empathically accurate perceivers are those who are consistently good at 'reading' other people's thoughts and feelings. All else being equal, they are likely to be the most tactful advisors, the most diplomatic officials, the most effective negotiators, the most electable politicians, the most productive salespersons, the most successful teachers, and the most insightful therapists. - Author: William Ickes
Being Equal quotes by William Ickes
#58. Many students described their parents' support in nonacademic activities as being equal to their support in school. Importantly, they felt this support was instrumental in helping them do well academically because it was viewed as a general interest in their life overall - Author: Keith Robinson
Being Equal quotes by Keith Robinson

Being Equal quotes by Orison Swett Marden
#60. With all things being equal, the simplest explanation tends to be the right one. - Author: William Of Ockham
Being Equal quotes by William Of Ockham
#61. The higher the general average of intelligence, all things else being equal, the less the disposition to be meddlesome, critical, and overbearing. - Author: Paul Harris
Being Equal quotes by Paul Harris
#62. There is nothing inherently irrational about preferring pleasure now to pleasure later. After all, the You on Tuesday is no less worthy of a chocolate bar than the You on Wednesday. On the contrary, the You on Tuesday is more worthy. If the chocolate bar is big enough, it might tide you over, so eating it on Tuesday means that neither You is hungry, whereas saving it for Wednesday consigns you to hunger on Tuesday. Also, if you abstain from chocolate on Tuesday, you might die before you wake, in which case neither the Tuesday You nor the Wednesday You gets to enjoy it. Finally, if you put the chocolate away, it might spoil or be stolen, again depriving both Yous of the pleasure. All things being equal, it pays to enjoy things now. - Author: Steven Pinker
Being Equal quotes by Steven Pinker
#63. All things being equal, the primary competitive advantage of your business will be your ability to grow Leaders Without Titles faster than your industry peers. - Author: Robin Sharma
Being Equal quotes by Robin Sharma
#64. Because a person has to be either working or looking for work to be counted as part of the labor force, an increase in the number of people too discouraged to continue their search for work would reduce the unemployment rate, all else being equal - but not for a positive reason. - Author: Ben Bernanke
Being Equal quotes by Ben Bernanke
#65. I would sort out all the arguments and see which belonged to fear and which to creativeness. Other things being equal, I would make the decision which had the larger number of creative reasons on its side. - Author: Katharine Butler Hathaway
Being Equal quotes by Katharine Butler Hathaway
#66. All things being equal, he preferred to do business with people who were sane. - Author: Amanda Quick
Being Equal quotes by Amanda Quick
#67. I don't wanna be equal with anybody. I wanna be above equal. I don't think most people are equal to me. I'd like to communicate with everybody; I'd like to do something universal, I'd like to have the hit record of the world. But that's not the same as being equal. - Author: Patti Smith
Being Equal quotes by Patti Smith
#68. Envy lies between two beings equal in nature though unequal in circumstances. - Author: Jeremy Collier
Being Equal quotes by Jeremy Collier

Being Equal quotes by Joan Dunayer
#71. Effective altruists, as we have seen, need not be utilitarians, but they share a number of moral judgments with utilitarians. In particular, they agree with utilitarians that, other things being equal, we ought to do the most good we can. - Author: Peter Singer
Being Equal quotes by Peter Singer
#72. To give my freedom blindly to a being equal to or inferior to myself is to degrade myself and throw away my freedom. I can only become perfectly free by serving the will of God. If - Author: Thomas Merton

#74. Seven Rules Formulated for Teaching Arithmetic:
1) Consider the situation the pupils faces.
2) Consider the response you wish to connect with.
3) Form the bond; do not expect it to come by miracle.
4) Other things being equal, form no bond that will have to be broken.
5) Other things being equal, do not form two or three bonds when one will serve.
6) Other things being equal, form bonds in the way that they are required later to act.
7) Favor, therefore, the situations which life itself will offer, and the responses which life itself will demand. (p. 101) - Author: Edward Lee Thorndike
Being Equal quotes by Edward Lee Thorndike
#75. But, it didn't matter that my mother suspected and knew that I was a writer. It was expected of me to take care of my share of the responsibility of making our way in the world as a family. In those days, also, it was unheard of, by us certainly, that to get any help, even from members of our own family, let alone from the government, which would have been disgraceful. Thank God that that kind of folly in thinking is obsolete. There is a temptation to feel, 'Well, we all made it; why can't these other poor people make it?' And, of course, nothing is more than stupid than that attitude. I must confess that I find that attitude among many countrymen of my own who do find themselves taking undue pride in their own sense of ability - of being equal to any situation, and of seeing it through and improving it, and so on. And then, putting that against other people who don't have that, and thereby implying that the other people are lazy. Not taking into account the whole different structure and identity and a people who have survived for centuries under very harsh conditions and members of a very great culture, and I am talking about the Indians, to begin with, in the Valley - the San Joaquin Valley, in Fresno, in Tulare, and the mountains, and there are many tribes of them, of different kinds, and I am talking about, also, the Mestizos, the mixtures of Mexican, Spaniards with Indians, making the Mexican. And I am talking about any minority which is considered by anybody as bein - Author: William Saroyan
Being Equal quotes by William Saroyan
#76. Because women don't have to be men's equals to be considered contenders; they have to be better. That's the lie of it all. You have to be better to prove yourself worthy of being equal. - Author: Mackenzi Lee
Being Equal quotes by Mackenzi Lee
#77. Children of polygamists besides being equally as bright and brighter intellectually, are much more healthy and strong. - Author: George Q. Cannon
Being Equal quotes by George Q. Cannon
#78. The deepest change begins with men raising children as much as women do and women being equal actors in the world outside the home. There are many ways of supporting that, from something as simple as paid sick leave and flexible work hours to attributing an economic value to all caregiving and making that amount tax deductible. - Author: Gloria Steinem
Being Equal quotes by Gloria Steinem
#79. All else being equal, the guy with the best genetics will have the best physique. But rarely are all things equal. - Author: Dorian Yates
Being Equal quotes by Dorian Yates
#80. All things being equal (fortunately things are seldom equal, not exactly), people prefer to be with others who look like them, speak the same dialect, and hold the same beliefs. An amplification of this evidently inborn predisposition leads with frightening ease to racism and religious bigotry. Then, also with frightening ease, good people do bad things. I know this truth from experience, having grown up in the Deep South during the 1930s - Author: Edward O. Wilson
Being Equal quotes by Edward O. Wilson
#81. Do you think there will ever be a time when racism doesn't exist?"

Being Equal quotes by Jodi Picoult

Being Equal quotes by Isaac Newton
#83. Miss Jenkyns wore a cravat, and a little bonnet like a jockey-cap, and altogether had the appearance of a strong-minded woman; although she would have despised the modern idea of women being equal to men. Equal, indeed! she knew they were superior. - Author: Elizabeth Gaskell
Being Equal quotes by Elizabeth Gaskell
#84. It's the classic story form. All staying equal, or proving equal, or being equal, this will all continue, and the next time around, we'll move on to see what happened to Harry after he dove in the river, or who his friend John really was, and so on. - Author: Robert Creeley
Being Equal quotes by Robert Creeley
#85. He kissed her a little more deeply and was happy to hear her gasp of pleasure. The sound brought his erection back to life, and he brushed his fingertips over her collarbone.
"How 'bout you hop on up here with me?"
"I don't think you're quite ready for that yet."
"Wanna bet?" He took her hand and put it under the hospital sheets.
The throathy laugh as she gripped him gently was yet another marvel. Just like her constant presence in his room, her fierce protection of him, her love, her strength.
She was everything to him. His whole world. He'd gone from being blasé about his death to being desperate to live. For her. For them. For their future.
"What do you say we give it another day?" she said.
"An hour."
"Until you can sit up on your own."
"Deal."
Thank God he was a fast healer.
(..............)
Wrath struggled on the bed, trying to force himself upright so that he bore the weight of his upper body on his hips.
Beth watched him the whole time, refusing to help.
When he was steady, he rubbed his hands together in anticipation. He could feel her skin already.
"Wrath," she said with warning as he beamed at her.
"Come up here, leelan, A deal's a deal. - Author: J.R. Ward
Being Equal quotes by J.R. Ward

#87. I've always been a person that's totally comfortable with my sexuality and showing my affections with my guy friends.

Being Equal quotes by Brody Jenner
#88. As an actor, being on autopilot is the worst thing possible. - Author: Matthew Perry
Being Equal quotes by Matthew Perry
#89. I can't stand things that are poorly made or shoddily conceived. I feel like I'm being insulted when something is poorly designed, poorly made. It's like whoever made that thing didn't respect the rest of us enough to do it well. - Author: Damian Kulash
Being Equal quotes by Damian Kulash
#90. I still think that the greatest suffering is being lonely, feeling unloved, just having no one ... That is the worst disease that any human being can ever experience. - Author: Mother Teresa

#97. If people never did silly things nothing intelligent would ever get done. - Author: Ludwig Wittgenstein
Being Equal quotes by Ludwig Wittgenstein
#98. It is only all too easy to understand the requirements contained in God's Word ('Give all your goods to the poor.' 'If anyone strikes you on the right cheek, turn the left.' 'If anyone takes your coat, let him have your cloak also. Rejoice always.' 'Count it sheer joy when you meet various temptations' etc.). The most ignorant, poor creature cannot honestly deny being able to understand God's requirements. But it is tough on the flesh to will to understand it and to then act accordingly. It is not a question of interpretation, but action. - Author: Soren Kierkegaard
Being Equal quotes by Soren Kierkegaard
#99. The greatest difficulty we have faced is the neocolonial way of thinking that exists in this country. We were colonized by a country, France, that left us with certain habits. For us, being successful in life, being happy, meant trying to live as they do in France, like the richest of the French. - Author: Thomas Sankara
Being Equal quotes by Thomas Sankara
#100. All my films are about kind of being seen to be one thing when you're actually something else, and the power of the female spirit to make things work your way on your terms. Which is what I do. - Author: Gurinder Chadha
Being Equal quotes by Gurinder Chadha
#101. Melians: And how, pray, could it turn out as good for us to serve as for you to rule?

Athenians: Because you would have the advantage of submitting before suffering the worst, and we should gain by not destroying you.

Melians: So that you would not consent to our being neutral, friends instead of enemies, but allies of neither side.

Athenians: No; for your hostility cannot so much hurt us as your friendship will be an argument to our subjects of our weakness, and your enmity of our power.

Melians: Is that your subjects' idea of equity, to put those who have nothing to do with you in the same category with peoples that are most of them your own colonists, and some conquered rebels?

Athenians: As far as right goes they think one has as much of it as the other, and that if any maintain their independence it is because they are strong, and that if we do not molest them it is because we are afraid; so that besides extending our empire we should gain in security by your subjection; the fact that you are islanders and weaker than others rendering it all the more important that you should not succeed in baffling the masters of the sea. - Author: Thucydides
Being Equal quotes by Thucydides
#102. People have a very limited idea of what being creative is - playing the guitar or the flute or writing poetry - so people go on writing rubbish in the name of poetry. You have to find out what you can do and what you cannot do. Everybody cannot do everything. You have to search and find your destiny. You have to grope in the dark, I know. It is not very clear-cut what your destiny is, but that's how life is. And it is good that one has to search for it - in the very search, something grows. - Author: Rajneesh
Being Equal quotes by Rajneesh
#103. AIDANCE (A'IDANCE) n.s.[from aid.]Help; support: a word little used. Oft have I seen a timely parted ghost,Of ashy semblance, meagre, pale, and bloodless,Being all descended to the lab'ring heart,Who, in the conflict that it holds with death,Attracts the same for aidance 'gainst the enemy.Sh.Hen. VI. - Author: Samuel Johnson

#110. It's hard to put into words. It's as much a feeling as it is the way your stomach flutters when you think of him. It's the feeling of being reached and reaching someone. It's the feeling of being sen by someone for who you really are and being adored for it. That, for me, is connection. - Author: Sarah Jio
Being Equal quotes by Sarah Jio
#111. I really liked the idea of playing that kind of optimistic, super-intense, go-get-'em spirit combined with being a little bit of an outsider. I am really drawn to girls of that age in general, who believe they can be a waitress, scientist, actress, a dentist, a zookeeper ... and who really aren't boy-crazy. - Author: Amy Poehler
Being Equal quotes by Amy Poehler
#112. The ability for employment benefits to be shared among spouses, the ability to move people who are dependent on visas for trailing spouses, all hinges on being able to deal with families of gay people in the same way that you deal with families of straight people. Otherwise, they can't move around. - Author: Lloyd Blankfein

#119. To see someone hurt, to really understand that, is the same as being hurt
yourself. To see someone happy is the the same as being happy. To feel love, the
same as feeling loved. To see someone die, the same as dying. We're one. We're
built that way. It's in our bones." ~Carlton from TimeTripper Book three:
