Common Pagan quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#2. Tom Paine was a great American visionary. His book, Common Sense, sold a couple of hundred thousand copies in a population of four or five million. That means it was a best seller for years. People were thoughtful then. Hope is one thing. But you need to have hope with thought. - Author: Studs Terkel
Common Pagan quotes by Studs Terkel
#3. It is wrong not to give a hand to the fallen. This right is common to the whole human race. - Author: Seneca The Elder
Common Pagan quotes by Seneca The Elder
#4. Wisdom is neither good nor bad, male nor female, Christian or pagan: she is no one's personal possession. The Goddess of Wisdom reaches down to the depths of our need. Her simple being is so vastly present that we have not noticed it. Indeed, we have not known the depths of our need nor that any assuaging wisdom was near at hand. - Author: Caitlín Matthews
Common Pagan quotes by Caitlín Matthews
#5. What is the difference between Utilitarianism and Communitarianism? Let me explain to you based on my modest and humblest understanding by using an analogy of Ham Sandwich and Egg Sandwich. To prepare and serve a Ham Sandwich, a poor pig's life must be sacrificed to serve the majority of the consumers - that is Utilitarianism. To serve an Egg Sandwich, on the other hand, a cheerful hen must dutifully lay an egg every day to serve the majority of the consumers - that is Communitarianism. In utilitarianism, the means is not important, as long as it produces the beneficial result (consequentialism) for the majority, then it is ethically and morally justifiable. It does not matter if you bomb the enemy's innocent women and children, so long as it maims the enemy's capability to retaliate, then your act is defensible for the greater good of your country. In communitarianism, however, individual life and individual contribution to the community are both important. As long as you continue laying eggs willingly and happily, you contribute to the common good of the community as a dependable and responsible hen, I mean, individual. (Danny Castillones Sillada, Inusara Journal, October 8, 2016). - Author: Danny Castillones Sillada

Common Pagan quotes by Li Zhaoxing
#7. However, just as earlier, when Christianity was introduced it didn't eliminate pagan conceptualizations, but layered new beliefs on top of them, so science simply added to the western mindset. It didn't fully displace religion, luck, fate, etc. Science just heaped other definitions onto the average person's already conglomerated psychic truckload. - Author: Thomas Daniel Nehrer
Common Pagan quotes by Thomas Daniel Nehrer
#8. If all our misfortunes were laid in one common heap, whence every one must take an equal portion, most people would be contented to take their own and depart. - Author: Solon
Common Pagan quotes by Solon
#9. I feel, as an artist, I should be able to express who I am and the things I come from, and the places I want to also be. - Author: Common
Common Pagan quotes by Common
#10. But there's one thing all the pixies do have in common. There's no magic left in any of their wings. No shimmer. No luminescence. And I have this awful feeling that my wings look no different. - Author: Devon Ashley
Common Pagan quotes by Devon Ashley
#11. Pooley the realist pooh-poohed such notions, but Pooley the mystic, dreamer and romantic sensed the aura of pagan mystery which surrounded the crop-headed man. - Author: Robert Rankin

#15. By "radical" I mean something more than that they aimed to change the order of society in a fundamental way or that they searched for the deepest roots of problems. The opposite of radical is not "moderate" or "conservative" but "common. - Author: Matthew Stewart
Common Pagan quotes by Matthew Stewart
#16. The art of being happy lies in the power of extracting happiness from common things. - Author: Henry Ward Beecher
Common Pagan quotes by Henry Ward Beecher
#17. Rivalistic desires are all the more overwhelming since they reinforce one another. The principle of reciprocal escalation and one-upmanship governs this type of conflict. This phenomenon is so common, so well known to us, and so contrary to our concept of ourselves, thus so humiliating, that we prefer to remove it from consciousness and act as if it did not exist. But all the while we know it does exist. This indifference to the threat of runaway conflict is a luxury that small ancient societies could not afford. - Author: Rene Girard
Common Pagan quotes by Rene Girard
#18. There are some who question the scale of our ambitions, who suggest that our system cannot tolerate too many big plans. Their memories are short, for they have forgotten what this country has already done, what free men and women can achieve when imagination is joined to common purpose, and necessity to courage. - Author: Barack Obama
Common Pagan quotes by Barack Obama
#19. If we want to reach them, our articulation of the problem has to avoid ascribing personal evil to them, while also being uncompromising in describing the dynamics of the problem. I cannot offer a formula for how to do this. The right words and strategies arise naturally from compassion: from the understanding that the bankers or whoever do as I would do, were I in their shoes. In other words, compassionate - and effective - words arise from a deeply felt realization of our common humanity. And this is possible only to the extent to which we have applied the same to ourselves. Truly, to be an effective activist requires an equivalent inner activism. - Author: Charles Eisenstein
Common Pagan quotes by Charles Eisenstein
#20. Culture is a way of working together toward common goals that have been followed so frequently and so successfully that people don't even think about trying to do things another way. If a culture has formed, people will autonomously do what they need to do to be successful. - Author: Clayton M Christensen
Common Pagan quotes by Clayton M Christensen
#21. Uncommon anxiety came to us in common hours when other people were doing mundane things like taking out the trash or checking their phones. But there was nothing to be done for this. We couldn't change who we were or what had happened. - Author: Laura Anderson Kurk
Common Pagan quotes by Laura Anderson Kurk
#22. Another thing all writers have in common is we're all observers. We pay attention to detail. - Author: Judy Blume
Common Pagan quotes by Judy Blume
#23. When any significant change takes place in the moral standards of a community, it is immediately reflected in a general shifting of the meanings of common words. - Author: Owen Barfield
Common Pagan quotes by Owen Barfield
#24. I return to the Prophet Joseph's words: 'Happiness is the object and design of our existence; and will be the end thereof, if we pursue the path that leads to it; and this path is virtue, uprightness, faithfulness, holiness, and keeping all the commandments of God.' Let us walk these clearly defined paths. To help us do so we can follow the shortest sermon in the world. It is found on a common traffic sign. It says, 'Keep right. - Author: Thomas S. Monson
Common Pagan quotes by Thomas S. Monson
#25. Each one of us has our own evolution of life, and each one of us goes through different tests which are unique and challenging. But certain things are common. And we do learn things from each other's experience. On a spiritual journey, we all have the same destination. - Author: A.R. Rahman
Common Pagan quotes by A.R. Rahman

Common Pagan quotes by Amy A. Bartol
#27. Among other common lies, we have the _silent_ lie
the deception which one conveys by simply keeping still and concealing the truth. Many obstinate truth-mongers indulge in this dissipation, imagining that if they _speak_ no lie, they lie not at all. - Author: Mark Twain
Common Pagan quotes by Mark Twain
#28. It's no doubt that there's a connection (between the blues and hip-hop). Hip-hop is definitely a child of the blues. And I think you gotta know the roots to really grow. It's like knowing your parents, it's like knowing your culture, so you could be proud of that culture and take it to the world. - Author: Common
Common Pagan quotes by Common
#29. Keeping off a large weight loss is a phenomenon about as common in American medicine as an impoverished dermatologist. - Author: Calvin Trillin
Common Pagan quotes by Calvin Trillin
#30. Rest forever, tired heart.
The final illusion has perished.
The one we believed eternal is gone.
Just like that. Out the door desire
follows hope. Rest forever.
Enough throbbing. Nothing deserves your attention
nor is the earth worth a sigh.
Bitterness and boredom is life,
nothing else ever, and the world is mud.
Quiet now. Despair for the last time.
Fate gives us dying as a gift.
Now turn from the hills, the ugly hidden power
which rules for the common evil
and the infinite vanity of it all. - Author: Giacomo Leopardi
Common Pagan quotes by Giacomo Leopardi
#31. I'll make you a little confession. I am not ashamed to use the word class. I will also plead guilty to another charge. The charge is that people belonging to my class think they're better than other people. You're damn right we're better. We're better because we do not shirk our obligations either to ourselves or to others. We do not whine. We do not organize a minority group and blackmail the government. We do not prize mediocrity for mediocrity's sake. Oh I am aware that we hear a great many flattering things nowadays about your great common man - you know, it has already been revealing to me that he is perfectly content so to be called, because that is exactly what he is: the common man and when I say common I mean common as hell. - Author: Walker Percy
Common Pagan quotes by Walker Percy
#32. Bound by a common identity grounded in language and history, the Arabs are all the more fascinating for their diversity. They are one people and many peoples at the same time. - Author: Eugene Rogan
Common Pagan quotes by Eugene Rogan
#33. In LA it's kind of common to date some random girl or guy, whereas back home it's more like you'll have your group of friends and you'll all kind of hang out, and then eventually there'll be a girl in the mix, and if you get on, then the next minute you'll be together. This whole dating process doesn't happen. - Author: Martin Henderson
Common Pagan quotes by Martin Henderson
#34. It is the finding of neuroscience, in fact, that belief is at least in part a matter of emotion. Whatever we believe to be true lights up areas of our brain responsible for self-identification and the processing of feelings and sentiments. If we believe something, then, the object of our belief becomes an emotionally potent aspect of our own self-image. There is some common sense to this, too: the most passionate of believers and the most strident of New Atheists are palpably, visibly fired up and ready to defend their positions. - Author: Steve Volk
Common Pagan quotes by Steve Volk
#35. As with everything else, the more we separate ourselves from each other, the weaker we become. - Author: Teresa R. Funke, Bursts Of Brilliance For A Creative Life Blog
Common Pagan quotes by Teresa R. Funke, Bursts Of Brilliance For A Creative Life Blog
#36. The Four Horsemen whose Ride presages the end of the world are known to be Death, War, Famine, and Pestilence. But even less significant events have their own Horsemen. For example, the Four Horsemen of the Common Cold are Sniffles, Chesty, Nostril, and Lack of Tissues; the Four Horsemen whose appearance foreshadows any public holiday are Storm, Gales, Sleet, and Contra-flow. - Author: Terry Pratchett
Common Pagan quotes by Terry Pratchett
#37. The situation is caused by the legal structure which gives the community no control over who buys the house lots. One consequence is that there are many absentee landlords who often do not participate in community decision-making, thus creating an inability to move forward, particularly on issues for which the law requires unanimity. The legislation also fails to provide an adequate framework for the management of the common land. - Author: Christine Connelly
Common Pagan quotes by Christine Connelly
#38. 'Doc, I can't stop singing the green green grass of home. 'That sounds like Tom Jones syndrome'. 'Is it common?' 'It's not unusual.' - Author: Tommy Cooper
Common Pagan quotes by Tommy Cooper
#39. Truth About Love"

I apologize for not being Gandhi or Tom
the mailman who is always kind.

He makes his way every day no matter
the mood of the sky with our words

in a sack and Gandhi made the English
give India back without

taking a gun for a wife. My contribution
to the common good is playing

with the alphabet in a little room
while the world goes foraging

for food. I'm a better poet than man
and it's well known how little

my verbs are worth. I am my only subject,
being the god of my horizons.

What saves me is that just beyond my skin
the world of yours is where

I'd rather live. The AMA says you've added
seven point six years to my life.

In a phrase, love is a transfer of wealth.
This is why Adam Smith gave up

romantic verse. In trying to say what can't
be said I'll take the Dragnet

approach. Just the facts. I'd be dead
sooner without you, you'll die faster

for being a Mrs., raw deal can't be more
clearly defined. To make amends

I offer ten percent more kisses each year.
Or do I do more harm the closer

we become? If yes, leaving would be love
and a better man might. But my thrills

are selfishly domestic. I like sweeping words
into piles and whispering good night. - Author: Bob Hicok
Common Pagan quotes by Bob Hicok
#40. For just a second, Lauren wonders if she's going insane. But insane people don't think they're insane, everybody knows that. But...since that fact of insanity is common knowledge, doesn't that mean an insane person could use it to convince themselves they're not actually insane? Wouldn't that make them even more insane? - Author: Patrick Anderson Jr.
Common Pagan quotes by Patrick Anderson Jr.
#41. I retired from public Business from a thorough Conviction that it was not in my Power to do any Good, and very much disgusted with Measures, which appeared to me inconsistent with common Policy and Justice. - Author: George Mason
Common Pagan quotes by George Mason
#42. In the late 70's I started to make drawings of the ordinary objects I had been using in my work. Initially I wanted them to be ready-made drawings of the kind of common objects I had always used in my work. I was surprised to discover I couldn't find the simple, neutral drawings I had assumed existed, so I started to make them myself. - Author: Michael Craig-Martin
Common Pagan quotes by Michael Craig-Martin
