Christianity emerged from the religion of Israel. Or rather, it has as its background a persistent strain in that religion. To that strain Christians have looked back, and rightly, as the preparation in history for their faith. ~ Kenneth Scott Latourette
Castrato History quotes by Kenneth Scott Latourette
We could start, perhaps, with the seemingly simple question, What is History? Any thoughts, Webster?' 'History is the lies of the victors,' I replied, a little too quickly. 'Yes, I was rather afraid you'd say that. Well, as long as you remember that it is also the self-delusions of the defeated. Simpson?' Colin was more prepared than me. 'History is a raw onion sandwich, sir.' 'For what reason?' 'It just repeats, sir. It burps. We've seen it again and again this year. Same old story, same old oscillation between tyranny and rebellion, war and peace, prosperity and impoverishment.' 'Rather a lot for a sandwich to contain, wouldn't you say?' We laughed far more than was required, with an end-of-term hysteria. 'Finn?' '"History is that certainty produced at the point where the imperfections of memory meet the inadequacies of documentation." ' 'Is it, indeed? Where did you find that?' 'Lagrange, sir. Patrick Lagrange. He's French. ~ Julian Barnes
Castrato History quotes by Julian Barnes
Augustine's, "Thou hast formed us for Thyself, and our hearts are restless till they find rest in Thee." The great saint states here in few words the origin and interior history of the human race. God made us for Himself: that is the only explanation that satisfies the heart of a thinking man, whatever his wild reason may say. ~ A.W. Tozer
Castrato History quotes by A.W. Tozer
Tempestuous plains tell the tale,
Windswept wastes do bewail,
Haunting Spirit of the land,
Seeks the living, seeks the damned.

Horizoned edge sheared with grass,
Dark Storm Rising in the pass,
Ageless Spirit seeks the path,
To torment souls to the last.

Brooding Spirit upon the plain,
Thunderhead gathers for the rain.
Light grows dim then bolts with pain,
On dry Earth her sin is stained.

(Frightened creatures do stampede,
Into night, they do recede).

Ungodded hand on seasoned blade,
Reaps the harvest of the Age.

Released from her eternal din,
Spirit of the Age rises again.
Seeking to plunder and consume,
Those who were proud, those who presumed.

Spirits rage while storm draws nigh,
Upon burning plain and emblazoned sky.
It is said giants grapple in the Earth so deep,
To contend for souls that they might keep.

The Storm spirit now searches the high and the low,
To seek her manchild victim in the fields below.
Leaves bad wasteland to claim but a fallen man,
Denying it Heaven, crowning it, 'Son of the Damned.'

Treacherous Spirit of the far lost night,
Tramples souls down denying them light.
Storm seethes with furious hiss,
Leads men on to bottomless pit.

This most ancient of foes has come from her den,
To seek the living, to make ready those dead.
A living sa ~ Douglas M Laurent
Castrato History quotes by Douglas M Laurent
It took us in this country 11 years to get from the Declaration of Independence to the Constitution. ~ Mitch McConnell
Castrato History quotes by Mitch McConnell
The concurrence of innumerable circumstances was needed without any one of which the event could not have taken place. It was necessary that millions of men in whose hands lay the real power - the soldiers who fired, or transported provisions and guns - should consent to carry out the will of these weak individuals, and should have been induced to do so by an infinite number of diverse and complex causes. We are forced to fall back on fatalism as an explanation of irrational events (that is to say, events the reasonableness of which we do not understand). The more we try to explain such events in history reasonably, the more unreasonable and incomprehensible do they become to us. ~ Leo Tolstoy
Castrato History quotes by Leo Tolstoy
This above all makes history useful and desirable; it unfolds before our eyes a glorious record of exemplary actions. ~ Livy
Castrato History quotes by Livy
Mozart, Pascal, Boolean algebra, Shakespeare, parliamentary government, baroque churches, Newton, the emancipation of women, Kant, Balanchine ballets, et al. don't redeem what this particular civilization has wrought upon the world. The white race is the cancer of human history. ~ Susan Sontag
Castrato History quotes by Susan Sontag
I access our history and get the usual muddle of love and competition that any two sisters share. ~ David Levithan
Castrato History quotes by David Levithan
Denunciation in Russia has a long history, going back at least as far as the sixteenth century and the testingly protracted reign of Ivan the Terrible (1533– 84). "Spy or die" was, more or less, the oath you swore. This practice, increasingly institutionalized under the old regime, was a tsarist barbarity that Lenin might have been expected to question. ~ Martin Amis
Castrato History quotes by Martin Amis
For god is nothing other than the eternally creative source of our relational power, our common strength, a god whose movement is to empower, bringing us into our own together, a god whose name in history is love ... ~ Carter Heyward
Castrato History quotes by Carter Heyward
There is much in the Bible against which every instinct of my being rebels, so much that I regret the necessity which has compelled me to read it through from beginning to end. I do not think that the knowledge which I have gained of its history and sources compensates me for the unpleasant details it has forced upon my attention. ~ Helen Keller
Castrato History quotes by Helen Keller
It cannot be denied that Islam, regarded as an ethical ideal plus a certain kind of polity - by which expression I mean a social structure regulated by a legal system and animated by a specific ethical ideal - has been the chief formative factor in the life-history of the Muslims of India. It has furnished those basic emotions and loyalties which gradually unify scattered individuals and groups, and finally transform them into a well-defined people, possessing a moral consciousness of their own. ~ Muhammad Iqbal
Castrato History quotes by Muhammad Iqbal
Some of us came to the cities to escape the reservation. We stayed after fighting in the Second World War. After Vietnam, too. We stayed because the city sounds like a war, and you can't leave a war once you've been you can only keep it at bay--which is easier when you can see and hear it near you, that fast metal, that constant firing around you, cars up and down the streets and freeways like bullets. ~ Tommy Orange
Castrato History quotes by Tommy Orange
My parents moved from ranch to ranch, valley to valley, town to town, but our roots in Fowler never really faded. For me, it's a place of history, stories and songs, not just facts and figures. ~ Juan Felipe Herrera
Castrato History quotes by Juan Felipe Herrera
The normal make a living. The deranged make history. ~ Christopher Titus
Castrato History quotes by Christopher Titus
History is the study of the world's crime ~ Voltaire
Castrato History quotes by Voltaire
We can't control our destiny. We can't go back into our past history and make changes. But we can begin this moment by setting a goal and pursuing it for a better life with a greater purpose. ~ Ellen J. Barrier
Castrato History quotes by Ellen J. Barrier
I'm really excited to be a part of it and sharing the legacy, any documentary I look up at the sky and Kevin Burns did and Bryan did and showed me again you know the history that's in this character and you know. ~ Brandon Routh
Castrato History quotes by Brandon Routh
The Indians had to be either killed, or herded into reservations, which were essentially concentration camps, and forgotten. Their history had to be absolutely obliterated so that we could believe that we were living on virgin soil. ~ Richard Rodriguez
Castrato History quotes by Richard Rodriguez
Oh, he shouldn't be surprised, he's a Marxist and has nothing but contempt for the bourgeois capitalist press, yet paradoxically he is also somehow an Americanist and a believer in Science and Freedom and History and Reason, and it dismays him to see cruelty politely concealed in data, madness taken for granted and even honored, truth buried away and rotting in all that ex cathedra trivia
my God! something terrible is about to happen, and they have time to editorialize on mustaches, advertise pink cigarettes for weddings, and report on a lost parakeet! Ah, sometimes he just wants to ram the goddamn thing with his head in an all-out frontal attack, wants to destroy all this so-called history so that history can start again. ~ Robert Coover
Castrato History quotes by Robert Coover
You go to school, you study about the Germans and the French, but not about your own race. I hope the time will come when you study black history too. ~ Booker T. Washington
Castrato History quotes by Booker T. Washington
The history of our country is cruel. We have to face those issues or, should I say, we had to. Not anymore I hope, because we are going in the right direction, and we are ready to forgive, ready to move on. ~ Novak Djokovic
Castrato History quotes by Novak Djokovic
It would take me a long time to realize that history is happening now, and we are a part of it. History is where you will find people who have been through what you are experiencing.
Not only been there, but survived it. Not only survived it, but changed it. ~ Chanel Miller
Castrato History quotes by Chanel Miller
There is an odd sense of responsibility attached to appearing in a drama about a real piece of history. A work of fiction is fun. ~ James D'arcy
Castrato History quotes by James D'arcy
I want to reach back into my history with a grade-school pink eraser, scrubbing away my decisions like mistakes on a math test. To bad I drew my mistakes in ink. ~ Emery Lord
Castrato History quotes by Emery Lord
The "child" was an invention of the 17th century; he did not exist in, say, Shakespeare's day. He had, up until that time, been merged in the adult world and there was nothing that could be called childhood in our sense. ~ Marshall McLuhan
Castrato History quotes by Marshall McLuhan
It would indeed be a tragedy if the history of the human race proved to be nothing more than the story of an ape playing with a box of matches on a petrol dump. ~ David Ormsby-Gore, 5th Baron Harlech
Castrato History quotes by David Ormsby-Gore, 5th Baron Harlech
We, the black people, the most displaced, the poorest, the most maligned and scourged, we had the glorious task of reclaiming the soul and saving the honor of the country. We, the most hated, must take hate into our hands and by the miracle of love, turn loathing into love. We, the most feared and apprehensive must take fear and by love, change it into hope. We, who die daily in large and small ways, must take the demon death and turn it into life.-Martin Luther King Jr. ~ Maya Angelou
Castrato History quotes by Maya Angelou
There is always an action and reaction; an advance and a retreat; a rising and a sinking; manifested in all of the airs and phenomena of the Universe. Suns, worlds, men, animals, plants, minerals, forces, energy, mind and matter, yes, even Spirit, manifests this Principle. The Principle manifests in the creation and destruction of worlds; in the rise and fall of nations; in the life history of all things; and finally in the mental states of Man. ~ Three Initiates
Castrato History quotes by Three Initiates
Judgement is always based on experience and sometimes you will battle a person's history first, before commonsense will ever win the war. ~ Shannon L. Alder
Castrato History quotes by Shannon L. Alder
Civilization is a movement and not a condition, a voyage and not a harbor. ~ Arnold J. Toynbee
Castrato History quotes by Arnold J. Toynbee
I experimented with my own one-man show a couple of years ago in Aspen when HBO used to have their comedy festival there. I called it 'A History of Me.' ~ Alan Zweibel
Castrato History quotes by Alan Zweibel
For the last eight years, American policy toward Iraq has been based on the direct threat Saddam poses to international security. That threat is clear. Saddam's history of aggression leaves little doubt that he would resume his drive for regional domination and his quest for weapons of mass destruction if he had the chance. ~ Sandy Berger
Castrato History quotes by Sandy Berger
The person who controls history controls their fate. The man who can tell you what happened, or did not happen, is lord and master of all he surveys. ~ Walter Mosley
Castrato History quotes by Walter Mosley
Names are very important for humans, aren't they? How do I translate for you the name of this town as it seems to me, the true name that tells of its history and people and lands and weather and ... everything? ~ Karen Lord
Castrato History quotes by Karen Lord
The real history does not get written, because it is not in people's brains but in their nerves and vitals. ~ Alfred North Whitehead
Castrato History quotes by Alfred North Whitehead
It might be crazy to expect a high government official to speak the truth. It might be crazy to believe that government policy will be something more than the handmaiden of the most powerful interests. It might be crazy to argue that we should preserve a tradition that has been part of our tradition for most of our history
free culture. If this is crazy, then let there be more crazies. Soon. ~ Lawrence Lessig
Castrato History quotes by Lawrence Lessig
With virtually no knowledge of or interest in history, the masses simply take their unprecedented high living standards under capitalism for granted. ~ Ralph Raico
Castrato History quotes by Ralph Raico
There's an unspoken message that the only stories worth telling are the stories that end up in history books. This is not true. Every story matters. My father's story matters. We are all worthy of telling out stories and having them heard. We all need to be seen and honored in the same way that we all need to breathe. ~ Viola Davis In Brené Brown's Braving The Wilderness
Castrato History quotes by Viola Davis In Brené Brown's Braving The Wilderness
At the State of the Union address last night, President Obama made history by using the words transgender, lesbian, and bisexual in that speech. It was the part of the speech where he was just reading Craigslist personals. ~ Conan O'Brien
Castrato History quotes by Conan O'Brien
The reason it is difficult is that we have been conditioned to laugh at conspiracy theories, and few people will risk public ridicule by advocating them. On the other hand, to endorse the accidental view is absurd. Almost all of history is an unbroken trail of one conspiracy after another. Conspiracies are the norm, not the exception. ~ G. Edward Griffin
Castrato History quotes by G. Edward Griffin
Reality, like God and History, tends to direct people to wherever they want to go. ~ Pauline Kael
Castrato History quotes by Pauline Kael
As a precaution, Ruth had also gnawed over the worst possibilities - brain tumor, Alzheimer's, stroke - believing this would ensure that it was not these things. History had always proven that she worried for nothing. ~ Amy Tan
Castrato History quotes by Amy Tan
History without the history of science, to alter slightly an apothegm of Lord Bacon, resembles a statue of Polyphemus without his eye-that very feature being left out which most marks the spirit and life of the person. My own thesis is complementary: science taught ... without a sense of history is robbed of those very qualities that make it worth teaching to the student of the humanities and the social sciences. ~ I. Bernard Cohen
Castrato History quotes by I. Bernard Cohen
While a good story must give me a role, and must extend beyond my horizons, it need not be true. A story can be pure fiction, and yet provide me with an identity and make me feel that my life has meaning. Indeed, to the best of our scientific understanding, none of the thousands of stories that different cultures, religions and tribes have invented throughout history is true. They are all just human inventions. If you ask for the true meaning of life and get a story in reply, know that this is the wrong answer. The exact details don't really matter. Any story is wrong, simply for being a story. The universe just does not work like a story.
So why do people believe in these fictions? One reason is that their personal identity is built on the story. People are taught to believe in the story from early childhood. They hear it from their parents, their teachers, their neighbours and the general culture long before they develop the intellectual and emotional independence necessary to question and verify such stories. By the time their intellect matures, they are so heavily invested in the story, that they are far more likely to use their intellect to rationalise the story than to doubt it. Most people who go on identity quests are like children going treasure hunting. They find only what their parents have hidden for them in advance.
Second, not only our personal identities but also our collective institutions are built on the story. Consequently, it is extremely frighte ~ Yuval Noah Harari
Castrato History quotes by Yuval Noah Harari
Our history is too compressed. We're trying to fit a lifetime into a day. ~ Nicola Yoon
Castrato History quotes by Nicola Yoon
This is in fact what shamanism is all about, what the end of history is all about, what psychedelic drugs are all about, we are edge-walking on an ontological transformation of what it means to be human. ~ Terence McKenna
Castrato History quotes by Terence McKenna
