#1. We had a much deeper sense of community in '67 than we do in '97. This is important to say that not in a nostalgic way because it's not as if '67 was a time when things were so good. - Author: Cornel West
Community quotes by Cornel West
#2. The capacity of a human community to shape it's future. - Author: Peter Senge
Community quotes by Peter Senge
#3. Every time you make creative, interactive, and harmonious jazz with your Redeemer, whether in your home, friendships, community, church, or at work, while staying inside of his parameters, you are expanding what you touch to the size of God's kingdom. - Author: Paul David Tripp
Community quotes by Paul David Tripp
#4. Finally an evangelizing community is filled with joy; it knows how to rejoice always. - Author: Pope Francis
Community quotes by Pope Francis
#5. Practically everyone now bemoans Western man's sense of alienation, lack of community, and inability to find ways of organizing society for human ends. We have reached the end of the road that is built on the set of traits held out for male identity-advance at any cost, pay any price, drive out all competitors, and kill them if necessary. - Author: Jean Baker Miller
Community quotes by Jean Baker Miller
#6. We cry shame on the feudal baron who forbade the peasant to turn a clod of earth unless he surrendered to his lord a fourth of his crop. We called those barbarous times. But if the forms have changed, the relations have remained the same, and the worker is forced, under the name of free contract, to accept feudal obligations. For, turn where he will, he can find no better conditions. Everything has become private property, and he must accept, or die or hunger.
The result of this state of things is that all our production tends in a wrong direction. Enterprise takes no thought for the needs of the community. Its only aim is to increase the gains of the speculator. Hence the constant fluctuations of trade, the periodical industrial crises, each of which throws scores of thousands of workers on the streets. - Author: Pyotr Kropotkin
Community quotes by Pyotr Kropotkin
#7. Lovers must not, like usurers, live for themselves alone. They must finally turn from their gaze at one another back toward the community. If they had only themselves to consider, lovers would not need to marry, but they must think of others and of other things. They say their vows to the community as much as to one another, and the community gathers around them to hear and to wish them well, on their behalf and its own. It gathers around them because it understands how necessary, how joyful, and how fearful this joining is. These lovers, pledging themselves to one another "until death," are giving themselves away, and they are joined by this as no law or contract could join them. Lovers, then, "die" into their union with one another as a soul "dies" into its union with God. And so here, at the very heart of community life, we find not something to sell as in the public market but this momentous giving. If the community cannot protect this giving, it can protect nothing ... - Author: Wendell Berry
Community quotes by Wendell Berry
#8. Take Canada again: why does Canada have the health-care program it does? Up until the mid-1960s, Canada and the United States had the same capitalist health service: extremely inefficient, tons of bureaucracy, huge administrative costs, millions of people with no insurance coverage―exactly what would be amplified in the United States by Clinton's proposals for "managed competition" [put forward in 1993].21 But in 1962 in Saskatchewan, where the N.D.P. is pretty strong and the unions are pretty strong, they managed to put through a kind of rational health-care program of the sort that every industrialized country in the world has by now, except the United States and South Africa. Well, when Saskatchewan first put through that program, the doctors and the insurance companies and the business community were all screaming―but it worked so well that pretty soon all the other Provinces wanted the same thing too, and within a couple years guaranteed health care had spread over the entire country. And that happened largely because of the New Democratic Party in Canada, which does provide a kind of cover and a framework within which popular organizations like unions, and then later things like the feminist movement, have been able to get together and do things. - Author: Noam Chomsky
Community quotes by Noam Chomsky
#9. I think the invitation offered the non-black reader is to join us in this expression of our familiarity and via that joining, come to understand that when black people come together to celebrate and rejoice in black critical thinking, we do so not to exclude or to separate, but to participate more fully in world community. However, we must first be able to dialogue with one another, to give one another subject-to-subject recognition that is an act of resistance that is part of the decolonizing, anti-racist process. - Author: Bell Hooks
Community quotes by Bell Hooks
#10. You have to believe in who you are and what difference you can make. You have to care about the urgency and the difference it will make to your community, and you have to, again, have confidence in the contribution that you can make. You believe, you care, you have confidence in the difference that you can make. And that's not to be egotistical, it's just to be confident. - Author: Nancy Pelosi
Community quotes by Nancy Pelosi
#11. Apart from the pleasure of looking at her and listening to her
of enjoying in her what others less discriminatingly but as liberally appreciated
he had the sense, between himself and her, of a kind of free-masonry of precocious tolerance and irony. They had both, in early youth, taken the measure of the world they happened to live in: they knew just what it was worth to them and for what reasons, and the community of these reasons lent to their intimacy its last exquisite touch. - Author: Edith Wharton
Community quotes by Edith Wharton
#12. I strive to do my best every single time and I think that's something the skate community knows about me and appreciates. - Author: Mike Vallely
Community quotes by Mike Vallely
#13. Do you love me?"
There was an awkward silence for a moment. Then Father gave a little chuckle. "Jonas. You, of all people. Precision of language, please!"
"What do you mean?" Jonas asked. Amusement was not at all what he had anticipated.
"Your father means that you used a very generalized word, so meaningless that it's become almost obsolete," his mother explained carefully.
Jonas stared at them. Meaningless? He had never before felt anything as meaningful as the memory.
"And of course our community can't function smoothly if people don't use precise language. You could ask, 'Do you enjoy me?' The answer is 'Yes,'" his mother said.
"Or," his father suggested, "'Do you take pride in my accomplishments?' And the answer is wholeheartedly 'Yes.'"
"Do you understand why it's inappropriate to use a word like 'love'?" Mother asked.
Jonas nodded. "Yes, thank you, I do," he replied slowly.
It was his first lie to his parents. - Author: Lois Lowry
Community quotes by Lois Lowry
#14. I started out as a physicist; however, I am what I have become. I have evolved, with the help of many colleagues in the international scientific community, into an interdisciplinary scientist. - Author: Alan J. Heeger
Community quotes by Alan J. Heeger
#15. My inspiration for writing music is like Don McLean did when he did "American Pie" or "Vincent". Lorraine Hansberry with "A Raisin in the Sun". Like Shakespeare when he does his thing, like deep stories, raw human needs.

I'm trying to think of a good analogy. It's like, you've got the Vietnam War, and because you had reporters showing us pictures of the war at home, that's what made the war end, or that shit would have lasted longer. If no one knew what was going on we would have thought they were just dying valiantly in some beautiful way. But because we saw the horror, that's what made us stop the war.

So I thought, that's what I'm going to do as an artist, as a rapper. I'm gonna show the most graphic details of what I see in my community and hopefully they'll stop it quick.

I've seen all of that-- the crack babies, what we had to go through, losing everything, being poor, and getting beat down. All of that. Being the person I am, I said no no no no. I'm changing this. - Author: Tupac Shakur
Community quotes by Tupac Shakur
#16. Probably the best nonsense poetry is produced gradually and accidentally, by communities rather than by individuals. - Author: George Orwell
Community quotes by George Orwell
#17. As Brian Urquhart has said quite correctly, I don't think that individual countries in the international community can stand aside and let all of these slaughters continue without doing anything. - Author: Alex Morrison
Community quotes by Alex Morrison
#18. Europe was not born in the early Middle Ages. No common identity in 1000 linked Spain to Russia, Ireland to the Byzantine empire (in what is now the Balkans, Greece and Turkey), except the very weak sense of community that linked Christian polities together. There was no common European culture, and certainly not any Europe-wide economy. There was no sign whatsoever that Europe would, in a still rather distant future, develop economically and militarily, so as to be able to dominate the world. Anyone in 1000 looking for future industrialization would have put bets on the economy of Egypt, not of the Rhineland and Low Countries, and that of Lancashire would have seemed like a joke. In politico-military terms, the far south-east and south-west of Europe, Byzantium and al-Andalus (Muslim Spain), provided the dominant states of the Continent, whereas in western Europe the Carolingian experiment (see below, Chapters 16 and 17) had ended with the break-up of Francia (modern France, Belgium and western Germany), the hegemonic polity for the previous four hundred years. The most coherent western state in 1000, southern England, was tiny. In fact, weak political systems dominated most of the Continent at the end of our period, and the active and aggressive political systems of later on in the Middle Ages were hardly visible.

National identities, too, were not widely prominent in 1000, even if one rejects the association between nationalism and modernity made in much contemp - Author: Chris Wickham
Community quotes by Chris Wickham
#19. The transition to a low-carbon economy will be one of the defining issues of the 21st century. This plan sets out a route-map for the UK's transition from here to 2020 ... every business, every community will need to be involved. Together we can create a more secure, more prosperous low carbon Britain and a world which is sustainable for future generations. - Author: Ed Miliband
Community quotes by Ed Miliband
#20. Communities must plan for a variety of uses and income levels. Why do we care about housing as high-tech employers? If teachers, firefighters, peace officers, retail or restau- rant workers can't live here, then we're going to fail. - Author: Carl Guardino
Community quotes by Carl Guardino
#21. In the kitchen, I turn on a TV set that has hundreds of channels devoted to every conceivable subject including celebrity bunion removal (This week: David Hasselhoff). I tune in to one of the literally dozens of news shows, all of which feature a format of 55 percent celebrities promoting things, 30 percent emails from viewers, and 15 percent YouTube videos showing bears jumping on trampolines. While I'm catching up on these developments, I turn on the programmable coffeemaker, which I hope that someday, perhaps by attending community college, I will learn to program. - Author: Dave Barry
Community quotes by Dave Barry
#22. Science tore the human race to bits. When anarchy hit, people struggled for community. The politicians chose enemies so that they could bind their followers with hate and terror. Community isn't enough when a thousand new ways of life beckon from every circuit and test tube. - Author: Bruce Sterling
Community quotes by Bruce Sterling
#23. In the contemporary world where things fall apart, and the centre cannot hold, you have to imagine a community where there is no centre. Hank, at the end of this year I started thinking that a lot of life is about doing things that don't suck with people who don't suck. - Author: John Green
Community quotes by John Green
#24. Who cares about an enlightened phantom? Only the other phantoms. It always needs a community of ignorant ideas and one of them maybe is a master -ignorant. The master of ignorance! There are no masters of knowledge. How can there be a master of knowledge ? How can there be a master of Heart? You can only be a master of shit. - Author: Karl Renz
Community quotes by Karl Renz
#25. There's some homophobia within black community, but there's some strong homophobia throughout the whole of American society as well, particularly throughout the South to a degree, whether white or black. And since many of us migrated from the South, that could be a strong connection along those lines. - Author: Otis Moss III
Community quotes by Otis Moss III
#26. A community is infinitely more brutalised by the habitual employment of punishment than it is by the occasional occurence of crime. - Author: Oscar Wilde
Community quotes by Oscar Wilde
#27. The love, support, and respect the members of the theater community have for one another is unparalleled. Say what you want about us wacky drama-types, but one thing that makes our business special is our loyalty, our fierce commitment to one another, and our mutual respect. - Author: Monica Raymund
Community quotes by Monica Raymund
#28. Today, Islam effectively resists secularization primarily because of its use of shame. Within the community, each person's sexuality is tied to his or her family and to the community. To violate the sexual rules of Allah violates both the family and the community. This powerful distortion allows Islam to remain isolated from secular sexual influences. The terror of social sanction or violence keeps young people from following their heart. It prevents healthy sexual exploration and development in men and women. - Author: Darrel Ray
Community quotes by Darrel Ray
#29. When you say that you are a race man, it means that you embrace the entire black community regardless of the hue, whether somebody is very light and could pass for possibly white or someone is very dark. - Author: Ed Smith
Community quotes by Ed Smith
#30. Almost all modern governments are highly conscious of what journalism calls 'world opinion.' For sound reasons, mostly of an economic nature, they cannot afford to be condemned in the United Nations, they do not like to be visited by Human Rights Commissions or Freedom of the Press Committees; their need of foreign investment, foreign loans, foreign markets, satisfactory trade relationships, and so on, requires that they be members in more or less good standing of a larger community of interests. Often, too, they are members of military alliances. Consequently, they must maintain some appearance of stability, in order to assure the other members of the community or of the alliance that contracts will continue to be honored, that treaties will be upheld, that loans will be repaid with interest, that investments will continue to produce profits and be safe. "Protracted internal war threatens all of this ... no ally wishes to treat with a government that is on the point of eviction. - Author: Sebastian Marshall
Community quotes by Sebastian Marshall
#31. This is an effort to have government coerce, force speech and behavior. And it's being pushed and advocated by the gay community. This is their ultimate goal. It's to not allow for diversity of opinion on this issue, because they don't want to be celebrated, they want to force everyone to not only agree with them but also have to finance their agenda. - Author: Michele Bachmann
Community quotes by Michele Bachmann
#32. I am sure the majority of Iranians want a peace agreement with Israel and want Iran to integrate with the international community and accept its universal values. - Author: Moshe Katsav
Community quotes by Moshe Katsav
#33. Storytelling comes naturally to humans, but since we live in an unnatural world, we sometimes need a little help doing what we'd naturally do. - Author: Dan Harmon
Community quotes by Dan Harmon
#34. Our job is not to amuse our readers. Our mission is to stir them, inform and inflame them. Our task is to continually hold up our government and our leaders to clear-eyed analysis, unaffected by professional spinmeisters and agenda-pushers. In these times, when those of us who are members of the 'reality-based community' are under relentless attack from both the right and the left, we must encourage, and our work must reflect, independent and non-ideological thinking. - Author: Tony Auth
Community quotes by Tony Auth
#35. In this age of omniconnectedness, words like 'network,' 'community' and even 'friends' no longer mean what they used to. Networks don't exist on LinkedIn. A community is not something that happens on a blog or on Twitter. And a friend is more than someone whose online status you check. - Author: Simon Sinek
Community quotes by Simon Sinek
#36. The local community is very important in one's life; the feelings of identification with a place and people. - Author: Alexander McCall Smith
Community quotes by Alexander McCall Smith
#37. Once 9/11 happened, people who looked like me and whose children looked like us and whose husbands looked of a community, really were made to feel quite the other, and I thought that was impossible in a city like New York but I myself was witness to that. - Author: Mira Nair
Community quotes by Mira Nair
#38. So many people representing different sections of our community are taken down one way or another. The system was designed to break us down. The three-strike rule is to break down a black man. - Author: Snoop Dogg
Community quotes by Snoop Dogg
#39. Finding God often happens in the midst of a community - with a "we" as often as an "I. - Author: James Martin
Community quotes by James Martin
#40. We are the in midst of a bipartisan moment as it relates to criminal justice reform and dealing with mass incarceration in America which disproportionately impacts the African-American community. - Author: Hakeem Jeffries
Community quotes by Hakeem Jeffries
#41. We want character but without unyielding conviction; we want strong morality but without the emotional burden of guilt or shame; we want virtue but without particular moral justifications that invariably offend; we want good without having to name evil; we want decency without the authority to insist upon it; we want more community without any limitations to personal freedom. In short, we want what we cannot possibly have on the terms that we want it. - Author: James Davison Hunter
Community quotes by James Davison Hunter
#42. I had no male friends now, though I did have a strong community of intelligent, supportive, funny women and I felt confused as to why they weren't enough for me, - Author: Charlotte Shane
Community quotes by Charlotte Shane
#43. China's development is an opportunity for the international community, for Japan and for the Asia-Pacific. - Author: Yoshihiko Noda
Community quotes by Yoshihiko Noda
#44. The human community and individual people are more likely to hurt or undernourish children they think of as 'bodies' to be used. Cultures and people are more likely to raise children to be mere economic interns rather than fully developed humans if they see children as 'bodies' to be forced into certain economic and social molds. - Author: Michael Gurian
Community quotes by Michael Gurian
#45. Muhammad preached his farewell sermon to the Muslim community. He reminded them to deal justly with one another, to treat women kindly, and to abandon the blood feuds and vendettas inspired by the spirit of jahiliyyah. Muslim must never fight against Muslim. - Author: Karen Armstrong
Community quotes by Karen Armstrong
#46. I contend that whatever does not raise the moral standard of the church or community has been a revival from God. - Author: Aiden Wilson Tozer
Community quotes by Aiden Wilson Tozer
#47. Comparing the vast knowledge base that has been accumulated, tested and proven for evolution, the continuing flow of new information that further adds to the knowledge base and a century and a half of unsuccessful attempts to falsify it by the scientific community, it becomes inconceivable that anyone still believes in the bizarre details of the Genesis creation myth. - Author: Al Stefanelli
Community quotes by Al Stefanelli
#48. This new power, which has proved itself to be such a terrifying weapon of destruction, is harnessed for the first time for the common good of our community. - Author: Queen Elizabeth II
Community quotes by Queen Elizabeth II
#49. What a vicious circle we can put ourselves in: we have come to accept the notion of "fix me first," when part of the essential fixing we all need is to be compassionately involved with others. - Author: Bo Lozoff
Community quotes by Bo Lozoff
#50. Give all your gifts away in service to the world. If you want to paint, don't wait for a grant, paint a wall in your town that looks drab and uninviting. You never know who is going to see that wall. Whatever it is you want to do, give it away in service to your community. - Author: Marianne Williamson
Community quotes by Marianne Williamson
#51. There are a lot of studies about small businesses and how they make a difference in their community and create a lot of jobs and values. So we need to focus on small businesses or entrepreneurs who want to start manufacturing or making things. - Author: Hamdi Ulukaya
Community quotes by Hamdi Ulukaya
#52. I never got why actors don't like it when a fan comes up to them on the street. It is cool that someone recognizes what you do and makes you feel like you live in a community. - Author: Ryan Eggold
Community quotes by Ryan Eggold
#53. In Japan, the writers have made up a literary community, a circle, a society. I think 90 percent of Japan's writers live in Tokyo. Naturally, they make a community. There are groups and customs, and so they are tied up in a way. - Author: Haruki Murakami
Community quotes by Haruki Murakami
#54. Everyone I know who used to be in the intelligence community is moving into the corporate world. - Author: Tony Gilroy
Community quotes by Tony Gilroy
#55. With a more expansive stretch, there's a better chance that I'll be around at the precise, random moment when one of my nephews drops his guard and solicits my advice about something private. Or when one of my nieces will need someone other than her parents to tell her that she's smart and beautiful. - Author: Frank Bruni
Community quotes by Frank Bruni
#56. Whereever a poet is born enduring
depends on the frailest of chances:
Who listened to your murmuring
over your little rubbish who let you be
who gave you the books
who let you know you were not
alone - Author: Adrienne Rich
Community quotes by Adrienne Rich
#57. If I could write an autobiography for fear, it would read like this:
__________

Hi, my name is Fear. F-E-A-R. But you are going to call me a lot of other things as you start to get closer to me. I'm terribly unoriginal. I'm like every has-been out there, but you give me way more credit than I deserve. You should keep doing that. I like it when you make me bigger than I actually am. I'm going to make you feel alone, and I like it when you believe you're the only one who's ever felt this way. You think I'm custom-catered to fit you, but I'm really no different than the brand of me your best friend wears. I'm a ballad lurking in the hearts of a billion people, and I will do anything to keep you from realizing that I am just the same song on repeat. You all know all my words.
I'm pretty jealous though. I want you alone with me at night. I'm not afraid to say I'm greedy or that I don't want to share you. I'm a territorial lover, and I would rather you not have solid and deep conversations at dinner parties or find a community that doesn't leave your side. I wrote you a story a long time ago, and I don't want you to figure out that you've outgrown the plotline.
I wonder why you don't get over me sometimes, but then the realization hits me: You come back because you know I want you. You come back because you know the sound of my voice. You come back because you know the way I move and how I shut you down. You've stood face-to-face with me so many times and - Author: Hannah Brencher
Community quotes by Hannah Brencher
#58. And you know, we were talking about American identity, and where we've come from and where we are and where we're headed. We knew that we wanted to have a hopeful ending and we wanted it to be pro-community, and a pro-democracy type of movie. - Author: Matt Damon
Community quotes by Matt Damon
#59. As Jesus explained, the right things have to die so the right things can live
we die to selfishness, greed, power, accumulation, prestige, and self-preservation, giving life to community, generosity, compassion, mercy, brotherhood, kindness, and love. The gospel will die in the toxic soil of self. - Author: Jen Hatmaker
Community quotes by Jen Hatmaker
#60. To succeed in the tech industry, you start businesses, make money, and make smart investments. But to succeed in the tech community, you do and build awesome things, are generous with your time and efforts, and make a point of making space for strangers - without any expectation of payback. - Author: Jon Evans
Community quotes by Jon Evans
#61. Everybody feels better about himself, his community, and his country if employers are paying workers well. Economics, though, teaches that if every employer is pressured to raise wages, some labor will be priced out of the market. - Author: Edmund Phelps
Community quotes by Edmund Phelps
#62. If you are feeling constrained by a group that you belong to, ask yourself,
"How can I participate in this community and still be who I am? - Author: Gina Greenlee
Community quotes by Gina Greenlee
#63. Any community that remains an abstraction is an easy target for prejudice and cruelty, but any community that becomes fully humanized is much harder to treat in that way. - Author: Andrew Solomon
Community quotes by Andrew Solomon
#64. third understanding of the imago Dei also gained popularity in the twentieth century, though it too had historical predecessors. In the early part of the twentieth century, Karl Barth argued that the central defining feature of the imago Dei is human relationality. Hence, this view is called the relational view of the imago Dei. Humans are created in the image of the Triune God and thus are meant to find their essence and destiny in community with one another and with God The following three essays offer arguments in favor of each of these views. - Author: Gregory A. Boyd
Community quotes by Gregory A. Boyd
#65. ( ... ) contemporary art has become a kind of alternative religion for atheists. ( ... ) For many art world insiders and art aficionados of other kinds, concept-driven art is a kind of existencial channel through which they bring meaning to their lives. It demands leaps of faith, but it rewards the believer with a sense of consequence. Moreover, just as churches and other ritualistic meeting places serve a social function, so art events generate a sense of community around shared interests - Author: Sarah Thornton
Community quotes by Sarah Thornton
#66. I just like artist-driven projects, but for artists themselves: artist spaces, artist mentor programs, and artists buying buildings and making lofts. Doing whatever we can do. Because at the end of the day, I really think that we as a community only have each other. - Author: Mark Bradford
Community quotes by Mark Bradford
#67. I love being honest and intimate with people. I love building community. I love emailing with readers. - Author: James Altucher
Community quotes by James Altucher
#68. Today, the lay midwife is a response to a growing home-birth movement. In my own community most physicians have decided to withhold prenatal care from the home-birther. This is judgmental and vindictive. These doctors have decided that home birth is not safe, and by withholding prenatal care they are doing their best to make sure it is unsafe. Often it is lay midwives who step forward to fill the void and help eliminate the unnecessary dangers of home birth. They are essential for screening out women who really should not have a home birth. For considerably less money than a physician charges, they spend many more hours with a pregnant woman before, during, and after the birth. and in most places they courageously face the opposition of the established medical community. - Author: Susan McCutcheon
Community quotes by Susan McCutcheon
#69. You can't be in the tech community ... without realizing there's a big shortage of talent. - Author: Mitch Kapor
Community quotes by Mitch Kapor
#70. This will play right into Obama's hands. He's humanitarian, compassionate. They'll use this to burnish their, shall we say, 'credibility' with the black community
in the both light-skinned and dark-skinned black community in this country. It's made-to-order for them. That's why he couldn't wait to get out there, could not wait to get out there. - Author: Rush Limbaugh
Community quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#71. Whenever land is bought and sold, three stakeholders automatically vie for a cut from the revenue that can be had from land: the community, the property owner, and the institutions that finance property ownership. With land-use rights, the revenue from land value increases is primarily recycled back to the community rather than captured by banks and property owners. - Author: Martin Adams
Community quotes by Martin Adams
#72. Conspicuous abstention from labour therefore becomes the conventional mark of superior pecuniary achievement and the conventional index of reputability; and conversely, since application to productive labour is a mark of poverty and subjection, it becomes inconsistent with a reputable standing in the community. - Author: Thorstein Veblen
Community quotes by Thorstein Veblen
#73. In the old days, Christmas lights had come in short strings that were wired serially. If a single bulb burned out or even just loosened in its socket, the circuit was broken and the entire string went dark. One of the season's rituals for Gary and Chip had been to tighten each little brass-footed bulb in a darkened string and then, if this didn't work, to replace each bulb in turn until the dead culprit was found. (What joy the boys had taken in the resurrection of a string!) By the time Denise was old enough to help with the lights, the technology had advanced. The wiring was parallel, and the bulbs had snap-in plastic bases. A single faulty light didn't affect the rest of the community but identified itself instantly for instant replacement ... - Author: Jonathan Franzen
Community quotes by Jonathan Franzen
#74. There's nothing more poisonous to a community than rumors and gossips. They taint the good character of those who effortlessly stand out. They provide mediocre individuals with a means to become relevant. They set in like gangrene and eat away at the sense of decency that differentiates humans from animals. - Author: Wiss Auguste
Community quotes by Wiss Auguste
#75. I had known David Ham and Marco Santiago from having met and worked with them on The Cross and the Switchblade which we worked on together at Times Square Church. We joined together as Trace Life Media to be a directing/producing team to be able to assist churches in the production of a play in their own community or to bring a fully-produced productions - something that will be ministering to the Body of Christ. - Author: Patricia Mauceri
Community quotes by Patricia Mauceri
#76. The wood wide web has been mapped, traced, monitored, and coaxed to reveal the beautiful structures and finely adapted languages of the forest network. We have learned that mother trees recognize and talk with their kin, shaping future generations. In addition, injured tress pass their legacies on to their neighbors, affecting gene regulation, defense chemistry, and resilience in the forest community. These discoveries have transformed our understanding of trees from competitive crusaders of the self to members of a connected, relating, communicating system. Ours is not the only lab making these discoveries-there is a burst of careful scientific research occurring worldwide that is uncovering all manner of ways that trees communicate with each other above and below ground. - Author: Peter Wohlleben
Community quotes by Peter Wohlleben
#77. The ways by which you may get money almost without exception lead downward. To have done anything by which you earned money merely is to have been truly idle or worse. If the laborer gets no more than the wages which his employer pays him, he is cheated, he cheats himself. If you would get money as a writer or lecturer, you must be popular, which is to go down perpendicularly. Those services which the community will most readily pay for, it is most disagreeable to render. You are paid for being something less than a man. The State does not commonly reward a genius any more wisely. Even the poet laureate would rather not have to celebrate the accidents of royalty. He must be bribed with a pipe of wine; and perhaps another poet is called away from his muse to gauge that very pipe. - Author: Henry David Thoreau
Community quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#78. Miss Climpson," said Lord Peter, "is a manifestation of the wasteful way in which this country is run. Look at electricity, Look at water-power. Look at the tides. Look at the sun. Millions of power units being given off into space every minute. Thousands of old maids, simply bursting with useful energy, forced by our stupid social system into hydros and hotels and communities and hostels and posts as companions, where their magnificent gossip-powers and units of inquisitiveness are allowed to dissipate themselves or even become harmful to the community, while the ratepayers' money is spent on getting work for which these women are providentially fitted, inefficiently carried out by ill-equipped policemen like you. - Author: Dorothy L. Sayers
Community quotes by Dorothy L. Sayers
#79. The Christian community demonstrates the effectiveness of the gospel. We are the living proof that the gospel is not an empty word but a powerful word that takes men and women who are lovers of self and transforms them by grace through the Spirit into people who love God and others. We are the living proof that the death of Jesus was not just a vain expression of God's love but an effective death that achieved the salvation of a people who now love one another sincerely from a pure - Author: Tim Chester

Community quotes by Lynn Schusterman
#81. Christ taught that the kingdom of God was a community where each member served the others. He defined His ultimate purpose using that term. But in most churches, a few people carry the load. - Author: J. Oswald Sanders
Community quotes by J. Oswald Sanders

Community quotes by Josa Young
#83. Hamdi Ulukaya and Chobani have made the decision to feed 250,000 victims of the Somali famine. Their compassion speaks for itself, and is a shining example of how the business community can have an enormous positive impact on the world. - Author: Amanda Lindhout
Community quotes by Amanda Lindhout
#84. The case of Iran, a nuclear program that the Iranians admit was 18 years on, that we underestimated. And, in fact, we didn't discover it. It was discovered by a group of Iranian dissidents outside the country who pointed the international community at the location. - Author: David Kay
Community quotes by David Kay
#85. For far too long, there has been a racial divide that has plagued our country. The egregious acts of discrimination and prejudices will no longer be tolerated. - Author: Asa Don Brown
Community quotes by Asa Don Brown
#86. I grew up partially in Switzerland but mostly in Australia. I lived in Kakadu for a short time - it's an Aboriginal community. My best friend growing up was Aboriginal. She taught me so much. - Author: Isabel Lucas
Community quotes by Isabel Lucas
#87. Community service has become a patch for morality. You can devote your life to community service and be a total schmuck. - Author: Timothy Keller
Community quotes by Timothy Keller
#88. If ever there were a true "just as I am" church, if ever there were a community where everybody could bring all their baggage and brokenness with them without neat and tidy happy endings quite yet, if ever there was a group where everyone was loved and no one pretended - we could not make enough room inside the building. - Author: John Ortberg
Community quotes by John Ortberg
#89. A community or a country is poor or rich, depending upon who lives on the waterfronts - the poor or the rich! - Author: Sandeep Sahajpal
Community quotes by Sandeep Sahajpal
#90. The hood made me realise that crime succeeds because crime does the one thing the government doesn't do: crime cares. Crime is grassroots. Crime looks for the young kids who need support and a lifting hand. Crime offers internship programmes and part-time jobs and opportunities for advancement. Crime gets involved in the community. Crime doesn't discriminate. - Author: Trevor Noah
Community quotes by Trevor Noah
#91. The solitude of women's minds is regrettable, I said to myself, it's a waste to be separated from each other without procedures, without tradition. - Author: Elena Ferrante
Community quotes by Elena Ferrante
#92. Until the world perceives that "good" cannot be applied to a thing because it is our own, and "bad" because it is another's, there is no prospect of realizing community. - Author: Richard M. Weaver
Community quotes by Richard M. Weaver
#93. Jesus, properly understood as shalom, coming into the world from the shalom community of the Trinity, is the intention of God's once-and-for-all mission. That is, the mission of birthing and restoring shalom to the world is in Christ, by Christ, and for the honor of Christ. - Author: Randy Woodley
Community quotes by Randy Woodley
#94. Every lynching represents by just so much a loosening of the bands of civilisation; that the spirit of lynching inevitably throws into prominence in the community all the foul and evil creatures who dwell therein. No man can take part in the torture of a human being without having his own moral nature permanently lowered - Author: Theodore Roosevelt
Community quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#95. My presence in California will bring a new, inspiring culinary environment to life, and I'm delighted to share my creative techniques and evolving fresh ideas with the Beverly Hills community. - Author: Jean-Georges Vongerichten
Community quotes by Jean-Georges Vongerichten
#96. Why is everything that's good for our bodies, our communities, our world, and our planet called the 'alternative'? That means everything bad for us is the accepted norm. - Author: Julia Hill
Community quotes by Julia Hill
#97. If you can create community in a classroom the kids will not drop out - Author: Martin Haberman
Community quotes by Martin Haberman
#98. Does it mean, if you don't understand something, and the community of physicists don't understand it, that means God did it? Is that how you want to play this game? Because if it is, here's a list of things in the past that the physicists at the time didn't understand [and now we do understand] [ ... ]. If that's how you want to invoke your evidence for God, then God is an ever-receding pocket of scientific ignorance that's getting smaller and smaller and smaller as time moves on - so just be ready for that to happen, if that's how you want to come at the problem - Author: Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Community quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#99. As a citizen of a community, if you never vote or engage, don't be surprised when the outcome doesn't serve your interests; you've never done anything to push things in the right direction. - Author: Rebecca MacKinnon

#101. When greed is enthroned, be it in a community or nation, ungodliness is celebrated at the altar of human pleasure. - Author: Sunday Adelaja
Community quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#102. We allow it to be dumped into this community asset, which is our one and only atmosphere. So that has to change, and there's really only one entity that can do that. So we have proposed a cap-and-trade system to stop that unlimited pollution, to use the forces of the market to efficiently allocate scarce permits to allow CO2 into the atmosphere. That's just one of 500 things we need to do, but it's probably the granddaddy of them all. - Author: Jay Inslee
Community quotes by Jay Inslee
#103. Try being a white person who adopts the trappings of black culture while still living in the white community. You will face more hate and ridicule and ostracism than you can even begin to fathom. People are willing to accept you if they see you as an outsider trying to assimilate into their world. But when they see you as a fellow tribe member attempting to disavow the tribe, that is something they will never forgive. That is what happened to me in Eden Park. - Author: Trevor Noah
Community quotes by Trevor Noah
#104. In a government framed for durable liberty, not less regard must be paid to giving the magistrate a proper degree of authority, to make and execute the laws with rigour, than to guarding against encroachments upon the rights of the community. As too much power leads to despotism, too little leads to anarchy, and both eventually to the ruin of the people. - Author: Alexander Hamilton
Community quotes by Alexander Hamilton
#105. First, how could I protect my team from the incessant demands of the business and achieve what the Agile community now refers to as a "sustainable pace"? And second, how could I successfully scale adoption of an Agile approach across an enterprise and overcome the inevitable resistance to change? - Author: David J. Anderson
Community quotes by David J. Anderson
#106. Abortion and contraception are inextricably intertwined in their use. As the idea of family planning spreads through a community there appears to be a rise in the incidence of induced abortion at the point where the community begins to initiate the use of contraceptives. - Author: Malcolm Potts
Community quotes by Malcolm Potts
#107. All work which is necessary ennobles him who performs it. Only one thing is shameful - to contribute nothing to the community. - Author: Adolf Hitler
Community quotes by Adolf Hitler
#108. The most touching thing that anyone can say to me is that I have done something beautiful for the community. - Author: Santiago Calatrava
Community quotes by Santiago Calatrava
#109. A study of animal communities has this advantage: they are merely what they are, for anyone to see who will and can look clearly; they cannot complicate the picture by worded idealisms, by saying one thing and being another; here the struggle is unmasked and the beauty is unmasked. - Author: John Steinbeck
Community quotes by John Steinbeck
#110. How very important it is to bring about in the human mind the radical revolution. The crisis is a crisis in consciousness, a crisis that cannot anymore accept the old norms, the old patterns, the ancient traditions. Considering what the world is now with all the misery, conflict, destructive brutality, aggression and so on ... man is still as he was, is still brutal, violent, aggressive, acquisitive, competitive and has built a society along these lines. - Author: Jiddu Krishnamurti
Community quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#111. Paul's vision, though, is starting small, with actual communities in which reconciliation and justice has to be practiced - like the rich/poor distinction in the Corinthian church, for instance, or the projected reconciliation between Philemon and Onesimus. But he clearly believes (Ephesians 3) that communities like this send a signal to the wider world that Jesus is Lord - which is aimed at then the whole world coming into line. - Author: N. T. Wright
Community quotes by N. T. Wright
#112. On every level - as individuals, and as members of a family, a community, a nation, and a planet - the most mischievous troublemakers we face are anger and egoism. - Author: Dalai Lama XIV
Community quotes by Dalai Lama XIV
#113. Money and stuff aren't what makes us happy. It's strong connections within families and friends, communities of people that truly care about one another. - Author: Jayni Chase
Community quotes by Jayni Chase
#114. If I came to your town and asked any person on the street, "Which church should I go to if I want to get involved in helping the poor or homeless in this community?" would your church be the first one mentioned? Make this identity your goal. - Author: Dillon Burroughs
Community quotes by Dillon Burroughs
#115. I sense an insatiable demand for connectivity. Maybe all these people have discovered important uses for the Internet. Perhaps some of them feel hungry for a community that our real neighborhoods don't deliver. At least a few must wonder what the big deal is. - Author: Clifford Stoll
Community quotes by Clifford Stoll
#116. Many in the trans community are fed up with L.G.B.T. organizations that continue to erase trans identity or just give lip service to trans issues. We need our cisgender allies - gay and straight - to treat transgender lives as if they matter, and trans people need multiple seats at the tables in the organizations that say they're interested in L.G.B.T. equality; this absence has been painful since Stonewall. - Author: Laverne Cox
Community quotes by Laverne Cox
#117. Obviously the extremists want to provoke sectarian warfare, and I am struck by the fact that over a three-year period, leaders of the (Iraqi) communities have been quite resistant to this. The test is whether the political process continues. - Author: Peter Rodman
Community quotes by Peter Rodman
#118. Community doesn't just create abundance - community is abundance. If we could learn that equation from the world of nature, the human world might be transformed. - Author: Parker J. Palmer
Community quotes by Parker J. Palmer
#119. Poor communities, frequently communities of color but not exclusively, suffer disproportionately. If you look at where our industrialized facilities tend to be located, they're not in the upper middle class neighborhoods. - Author: Carol Browner
Community quotes by Carol Browner
#120. For me, it's standard. I don't feel irresponsible for telling kids not to vote; I feel like I deserve a Blue Peter badge for not telling them to riot. For not telling them that they are entitled to destroy the cathedrals of tyranny erected to mock them in the heart of their community. That they should rise up and destroy the system that imprisons them, ignores them, condemns and maligns them. By any means necessary. - Author: Russell Brand
Community quotes by Russell Brand
#121. To begin with, there are three important aspects about being human: We are not alone and we are wired for meaningful connection. We travel in packs (families, friendships, social groups, and sub-groups). Our behavioral decisions always include the fact that we live in community and will always directly or indirectly reflect this shared existence with other people - like it or not. - Author: Steven Sisler
Community quotes by Steven Sisler
#122. Any government has to be friendly with investors and the business community. They provide jobs, new investments; they keep the country running. - Author: Naguib Sawiris
Community quotes by Naguib Sawiris
#123. A community receives light from its history, it becomes aware of itself by remembrance of its history. - Author: Muhammad Iqbal
Community quotes by Muhammad Iqbal
#124. Most conservatives just want to turn back the clock to a time before the income tax - 100 years or so. I would like to turn the clock back thousands of years to a time when people lived in small communities and took care of each other. - Author: Pete Seeger
Community quotes by Pete Seeger
#125. I am not a hoodlum. I'm a community organizer. - Author: Bobby Seale
Community quotes by Bobby Seale
#126. Trust is a social good to be protected just as much as the air we breathe or the water we drink. When it is damaged, the community as a whole suffers; and when it is destroyed, societies falter and collapse - Author: Sissela Bok
Community quotes by Sissela Bok
#127. It is one of the great goals of my administration to invigorate the spirit of involvement and citizenship. We will encourage faith-based and community programs without changing their mission. - Author: George W. Bush
Community quotes by George W. Bush

Community quotes by Olivia Wilde
#129. You can't raise kids alone, you can't heal alone ... you really need a community. - Author: Bryce Dallas Howard
Community quotes by Bryce Dallas Howard
#130. I think that you're very aware that you're shooting a 3D film for a movie that's beloved to the fan community, and that it's going to be on people's radar, and that you have to be excellent. I think it evolved over time how epic it has become. The first time we went to Comic-Con after we finished shooting I went, "oh my goodness, oh my goodness!" - Author: Christine Bieselin Clark
Community quotes by Christine Bieselin Clark
#131. Why is it that so many people start to value money so much that they trade in most of the hours and years of their life in order to get it? - Author: Andy Couturier
Community quotes by Andy Couturier
#132. Each of us must rededicate ourselves to serving the common good. We are a community. Our individual Fates are linked; our futures intertwined; and if we act in that knowledge and in that spirit together, as the Bible says: "We can move mountains." - Author: Jimmy Carter
Community quotes by Jimmy Carter
#133. The strength of collective decision making and political responsibility is not only a question of recognizing other people's ability. It is also recognizing one's own limitations. - Author: Aruna Roy
Community quotes by Aruna Roy
#134. community, an organization, or a natural system - to prepare for disruptions, to recover from shocks and stresses, and to adapt and grow from a disruptive experience. As you build resilience, therefore, you become more able to prevent or mitigate stresses and shocks you can identify - Author: Judith Rodin
Community quotes by Judith Rodin
#135. What is even more striking than the negational character of this political culture is the absence of robust and constructive affirmations. Vibrant cultures make space for leisure, philosophical reflection, scientific and intellectual mastery, and artistic and literary expression, among other things. Within the larger Christian community in America, one can find such vitality in pockets here and there. Yet where they do exist, they are eclipsed by the greater prominence and vast resources of the political activists and their organizations. What is more, there are few if any places in the pronouncements and actions of the Christian Right or the Christian Left (none that I could find) where these gifts are acknowledged, affirmed, or celebrated. What this means is that rather than being defined by its cultural achievements, its intellectual and artistic vitality, its service to the needs of others, Christianity is defined to the outside world by its rhetoric of resentment and the ambitions of a will in opposition to others. - Author: James Davison Hunter
Community quotes by James Davison Hunter
#136. Economists should be modest and be aware that they are part of the broader social science community. We need to be pragmatic about the methods we use. When we need to do history, we should do history. When we need to study political science, we should study political science. - Author: Thomas Piketty
Community quotes by Thomas Piketty
#137. Happiness is good, but well-overrated: what we hate most are the very motivators that put us in gear. A man drifts along with little to contribute until something agitates him enough to make a difference, whether for himself or for his communities. - Author: Criss Jami
Community quotes by Criss Jami
#138. The Girl Scouts is where I became acquainted with the idea that a woman can do anything. Learning that early on has a tremendous impact on the development of a young girl's personality. It had a huge impact on me. Girl Scouts is where I first learned about philanthropy and fell in love with the concept of helping others-in my troop this was very important. We did a lot of community service like picking up trash and feeding the homeless. Loving humankind was something that echoed throughout my time at Girl Scouts. - Author: Lisa Ling
Community quotes by Lisa Ling
#139. So that's what we're about then," I said. "Staying safe in our gated-community faith, where we make room for God. Well, you know what? It's a fantasy and a lie. - Author: Nancy N. Rue
Community quotes by Nancy N. Rue
#140. What is a career, actually? Nobody can destroy my career. Only I can destroy my career, if I am a bad conductor. I've gone to lesser known orchestras in Scotland and Sweden, Detroit, but I have enjoyed the places I've been, and had success. I like the close community relations, and to solve problems. - Author: Neeme Jarvi
Community quotes by Neeme Jarvi
#141. All children, including TCKs, face a myriad of developmental tasks as they grow from helpless infants into healthy adults. Among them is the need to develop a strong sense of personal identity as well as group identity, answering the questions Who am I? and Where do I belong? Traditionally, the family and community mirror back the answers and the child sees his or her image reflected in them. - Author: David C. Pollock
Community quotes by David C. Pollock
#142. Poverty devastates families, communities and nations. It causes instability and political unrest and fuels conflict. - Author: Kofi Annan
Community quotes by Kofi Annan
#143. Strengthening local airports in Iowa is important for economic development and improving the quality of life our rural areas and urban communities - Author: Chuck Grassley
Community quotes by Chuck Grassley
#144. A degraded habitat will produce degraded humans. If there is to be any true progress, then the entire life community must progress. - Author: Thomas Berry
Community quotes by Thomas Berry
#145. Older children need a community of peers and adults with whom to begin forming a synthetic-conventional faith and to begin establishing for themselves a set of values, beliefs, and commitments that will guide their decision making and energize their wills to live out those commitments - a community that knows and lives its faith. - Author: Catherine Stonehouse
Community quotes by Catherine Stonehouse
#146. In the African American community, we are very 'hush, hush' about things in our life. - Author: Kym Whitley
Community quotes by Kym Whitley
#147. I have been interested in global web-based communities and emerging technologies since the mid 80's. There is a revolution occurring in global culture nowadays, that will change everything. and it's only just beginning. - Author: Alex Winter
Community quotes by Alex Winter
#148. C. S. Lewis argues that it takes a community of people to get to know an individual person. Reflecting on his own friendships, he observed that some aspects of one of his friend's personality were brought out only through interaction with a second friend. That meant if he lost the second friend, he lost the part of his first friend that was otherwise invisible. "By myself I am not large enough to call the whole man into activity; I want other lights than my own to show all his facets."221 If it takes a community to know an ordinary human being, how much more necessary would it be to get to know Jesus alongside others? By praying with friends, you will be able to hear and see facets of Jesus that you have not yet perceived. - Author: Timothy Keller
Community quotes by Timothy Keller
#149. Living together is an art. - Author: William Pickens
Community quotes by William Pickens
#150. The community knows that the fundamental questions of life can only be looked at in a spirit of peace and inner freedom. Nobody can force anyone else to love and to walk to freedom. Militants for a cause will tend to be organized for a struggle which they hope to win; they will seek to impose their way aggressively. Frequently they seek outward change more than inward change.

. . . As long as there are fears and prejudices in the human heart, there will be war and bitter injustice. It is only when hearts are healed, and become loving and open, that the great political problems will be solved. . . . As fears and prejudices diminish, and trust in God and others grows, the community can radiate and witness to a style and quality of life which will bring a solution to the troubles of our world.

The response to war is to live like brothers and sisters. The response to injustice is to share. The response to despair is a limitless trust and hope. The response to prejudice and hatred is forgiveness. To work for community is to work for humanity. To work for peace in community, through acceptance of others as they are, and through constant forgiveness, is to work for peace in the world and for true political solutions; it is to work for the Kingdom of God. - Author: Jean Vanier
Community quotes by Jean Vanier
#151. Preconceived standards of conduct are unimportant and the assumption of the innate sinfulness of human is impossible, for the individual is judged instantaneously by his or her fellows as as useful or useless according to his or her degree of participation in community affairs.
-God is Red - Author: Vine Deloria Jr.
Community quotes by Vine Deloria Jr.
#152. I don't need to be someone famous or George Clooney. I don't need to be any of these people to get involved in my community or reach out to one nationally. - Author: Gbenga Akinnagbe
Community quotes by Gbenga Akinnagbe
#153. People are hungry for community. They're hungry for meaning in a society that is oriented around the production and consumption of consumer goods. - Author: Mitch Kapor
Community quotes by Mitch Kapor
#154. The Christian, however, must bear the burden of a brother. He must suffer and endure the brother. It is only when he is a burden that another person is really a brother and not merely an object to be manipulated. The burden of men was so heavy for God Himself that He had to endure the Cross. God verily bore the burden of men in the body of Jesus Christ. But He bore them as a mother carries her child, as a shepherd enfolds the lost lamb that has been found. God took men upon Himself and they weighted Him to the ground, but God remained with them and they with God. In bearing with men God maintained fellowship with them. It was the law of Christ that was fulfilled in the Cross. And Christians must share in this law. - Author: Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Community quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#155. Because people understand that the diocese is trying to help the members of that group feel more connected to their church, the church they belong to by virtue of their baptism. - Author: James Martin
Community quotes by James Martin
#156. The person who's in love with their vision of community will destroy community. But the person who loves the people around them will create community everywhere they go. - Author: Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Community quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#157. The farther you progress toward a vision of our species without limiting conditions on your consciousness, the farther you drift away from what makes you a person among persons in the human community. - Author: Thomas Ligotti
Community quotes by Thomas Ligotti
#158. The international community must make pressure on Israel to recognize our right to get freedom, to fight against occupation, to have real peace, legitimacy on our ground. If the international community obliged Israel to do that, then they can come to us and ask us to take our step. - Author: Khaled Mashal
Community quotes by Khaled Mashal
#159. We still have gaps that are rooted in gender inequality. Certainly we have discrimination against the LGBT community. - Author: Hillary Clinton
Community quotes by Hillary Clinton
#160. As I witness and participate in our visionary efforts to revitalize Detroit and contrast them with the multibillion dollars' worth of megaprojects advanced by politicians and developed that involve casinos, giant stadiums, gentrification, and the Super Bowl, I am saddened by their shortsightedness. At the same time I rejoice in the energy being unleashed in the community by our human-scale programs that involve bringing the country back into the city and removing the walls between schools and communities, between generations, and between ethnic groups. And I am confident just as in the early twentieth century people came from around the world to marvel at the mass production lines pioneered by Henry Ford, in the twenty-first century they will be coming to marvel at the thriving neighborhoods that are the fruit of our visionary programs. - Author: Grace Lee Boggs
Community quotes by Grace Lee Boggs
#161. Most of the problems with the bodies and minds of the folks occupying the current culture involve an unwillingness to do anything hard, or anything that they'd rather not do. I applaud your resolve, and I welcome you to the community of people who have decided that EASY will no longer suffice. - Author: Mark Rippetoe
Community quotes by Mark Rippetoe
#162. Today, few Americans born after 1980 are familiar with the Jonestown tragedy, although anyone with an Internet connection can listen to the haunting tape of the community's mass extinction. And while the phrase "drinking the Kool-Aid" has entered the cultural lexicon, its reference to gullibility and blind faith is a slap in the face of the Jonestown residents who were goaded into dying by the lies of Jim Jones, and, especially insulting to the 304 murdered children. As the FBI files clearly document, the community devolved into a living hell from which there was no escape. - Author: Julia Scheeres
Community quotes by Julia Scheeres
#163. So do you want to make culture? Find a community, a small group who can lovingly fuel your dreams and puncture your illusions. Find friends and form a family who are willing to see grace at work in one another's lives, who can discern together which gifts and which crosses each has been called to bear. Find people who have a holy respect for power and a holy willingness to spend their power alongside the powerless. Find some partners in the wild and wonderful world beyond church doors. And then, together, make something of the world. - Author: Andy Crouch
Community quotes by Andy Crouch
#164. The dichotomy is delicious. Inside the fantasy genre, I try to present women who need to solve real problems like having no voice in community, or no right to work; no access to capital to start a business. No reinforcement for talent. - Author: Stella Atrium
Community quotes by Stella Atrium
#165. Over the past thirty-five years, untold numbers of gay Christians have turned from God in their "failure" and "inability to please God," who, they were told, could not accept them as a gay person. Some felt so rejected and depressed that they turned to self-destructive behaviors, including suicide; some went deep in the closet to try to fit in at church; some became vehemently opposed to all things religious; some decided to seek God in other religions, or no religion; and very few individuals were able to find a church community in which they could worship and serve God without being rejected. - Author: Kathy Baldock
Community quotes by Kathy Baldock
#166. In the second decade of the twenty-first century, that spectrum appears to be giving way in many regions to one defined by identity. The left has focused less on broad economic equality and more on promoting the interests of a wide variety of groups perceived as being marginalized - blacks, immigrants, women, Hispanics, the LGBT community, refugees, and the like. The right, meanwhile, is redefining itself as patriots who seek to protect traditional national identity, an identity that is often explicitly connected to race, ethnicity, or religion. - Author: Francis Fukuyama
Community quotes by Francis Fukuyama
#167. Children are the seed for peace or violence in the future, depending on how they are cared for and stimulated. Thus, their family and community environment must be sown to grow a fairer and more fraternal world, a world to serve life and hope. - Author: Zilda Arns
Community quotes by Zilda Arns
#168. The African American community is so under-served in the entertainment industry. - Author: Lance Reddick
Community quotes by Lance Reddick
#169. There is no self-knowledge but an historical one. No one knows what he himself is who does not know his fellow men, especially the most prominent one of the community, the master's master, the genius of the age. - Author: Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel
Community quotes by Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel
#170. The scientific community should work as hard as possible to address major issues that affect our everyday lives such as climate change, infectious diseases and counterterrorism; in particular, 'clean energy' research deserves far higher priority. And science and technology are the prime routes to tackling these issues. - Author: Martin Rees
Community quotes by Martin Rees
#171. A basic premise of restorative practices is that the increasingly inappropriate behavior in schools is a direct consequence of the overall loss of connectedness in our society. By fostering inclusion, community, accountability, responsibility, support, nurturing and cooperation, circles restore these qualities to a community or classroom and facilitate the development of character. As a consequence of fostering relationships and a sense of belonging, academic performance, too, flourishes. - Author: Bob Costello
Community quotes by Bob Costello
#172. Keep at it! Remember marketing is building a relationship! If you use marketing for a year and stop, you cut off your relationship with the larger community. Then you will have to re-start the relationship all over again. The old adage "it takes six to stick" is proven true over and over again. I realized this in year three of our church plant. I think of the hundreds of people that came to our services that had no connection with me or our people because we were willing to build a sustained relationship with them through marketing. - Author: Gary Rohrmayer
Community quotes by Gary Rohrmayer
#173. Ultimately, the disconnect with the earth we have going relates to a deeper sickness of losing touch with our souls, our bodies, our communities. The collective stories about what is happening need to change. We need to reclaim a sense that we have a say in how things go. - Author: Frazey Ford
Community quotes by Frazey Ford
#174. As someone who has moved around a fair amount, I wondered what it would be like to stay rooted to one place, one community. - Author: Joseph Monninger
Community quotes by Joseph Monninger
#175. We have nothing to hide and it should be clear for the international community whose fault it was that the last closed European border was not open. - Author: Serzh Sargsyan
Community quotes by Serzh Sargsyan
#176. A community to be truly community, must have a quality of unselfconsciousness about it. - Author: Madeleine L'Engle
Community quotes by Madeleine L'Engle
#177. The extended family, the community, and religion may indeed have limited our freedom, sexual and otherwise, but in return they offered us a much-needed sense of belonging. For generations, these traditional institutions provided order, meaning, continuity, and social support. Dismantling them has left us with more choices and fewer restrictions than ever. We are freer, but also more alone. As Giddens describes it, we have become ontologically more anxious. - Author: Esther Perel
Community quotes by Esther Perel
#178. As far as responsibility goes, no one really wants it -- but all of us are responsible to the community we live in & its laws. - Author: Truman Capote
Community quotes by Truman Capote
#179. There is no executive order; there is no law that can require the American people to form a national community. This we must do as individuals and if we do it as individuals, there is no President of the United States who can veto that decision. - Author: Barbara Jordan
Community quotes by Barbara Jordan
#180. If you teach a boy, you educate an individual; but if you teach a girl, you educate a community. - Author: Greg Mortenson
Community quotes by Greg Mortenson
#181. We agree that there is something that happens inside of a person, a people, a community when you think you will not love, that the people around you will not live. We talk about how you develop an attitude, on that dismisses hope, that discards dreams. - Author: Patrisse Khan-Cullors
Community quotes by Patrisse Khan-Cullors
#182. A human being has close kinship with the whole human race -- not a bond of blood or seed, but a community of mind. And you have forgotten this too, that every man's mind is a god and has flowed from that source; that nothing is our own property, but even our child, our body, our very soul have come from that source; that all is as thinking makes it so; that each of us lives only the present moment, and the present moment is all we lose. - Author: Marcus Aurelius
Community quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#183. I did exactly what Hadia's being celebrated for. No! I did what I thought was so important to you. I chose someone for the community. And I loved her, Mama. I loved her. - Author: Fatima Farheen Mirza
Community quotes by Fatima Farheen Mirza
#184. Now this is a most satisfactory and important thing to think about, for brutality will not, - cannot, - accomplish what a kindly disposition will; and, if folks could only know how quickly a "balky" child will, through loving and cuddling, grow into a charming, happy youth, much childish gloom and sorrow would vanish; for a man or woman who is ugly to a child is too low to rank as highly as a wild animal; for no animal will stand, for an instant, anything approaching an attack, or any form of harm to its young. But what a lot of tots find slaps, yanks and hard words for conditions which do not call for such harsh tactics! No child is naturally ugly or "cranky." And big, gulping sobs, or sad, unhappy young minds, in a tiny body should not occur in any community of civilization. Adulthood holds many an opportunity for such conditions. Childhood should not. - Author: Ernest Vincent Wright

Community quotes by Angela Merkel
#188. We see community organizations as major service providers and economic drivers rather than as recipients or distributors of charity, and coordinators of volunteers. Today they constitute what's referred to as 'the social economy'. - Author: Julia Gillard
Community quotes by Julia Gillard
#189. The work of the Spirit is the bringing to be of the vision of God ... the capacitating of persons to 'see visions' and 'dream dreams' ... The birth of the Church is the beginning of the End ... The Kingdom of God as the miracle of ocular newness when 'the blind see' makes its impact on history in the creation of a visionary community . [[The tongues were]] the language of the world to come ... Therefore in this birth of the Church, the risen and ascended Lord takes to himself a Body on earth with eyes opened by the Spirit to see the future. - Author: Gabriel Fackre

#195. If you haven't got a gun, you can't shoot anyone. We need to look at how these guns are getting into our communities. It's about replacing the negativity with good stuff.

#196. My books have done extremely well, I know. But I don't honestly feel much different from when I began to write. I still think we have a long way to go. I suppose my name means more in Nigeria today than it did five years ago. But I feel the job that literature should do in our community has not even started. It's not yet part of the life of the nation. We are still at the beginning. It's a big beginning, because now we are catching the next generation in the schools. When I was their age, I had nothing to read that had any relevance to my own environment. - Author: Chinua Achebe
Community quotes by Chinua Achebe
#197. I've spent quality time in the aerospace community, with my service on two presidential commissions, but at heart, I'm an academic. Being an academic means I don't wield power over person, place or thing. I don't command armies; I don't lead labor unions. All I have is the power of thought. - Author: Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Community quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson

#199. Acting a part is not always synonymous with lying; it is far often the best way of serving the truth. It is more truthful to act what we should feel if the community is to be well served rather than behave as we actually do feel in our selfish private feelings. - Author: Elizabeth Goudge
Community quotes by Elizabeth Goudge
