#1. What keeps [friends] together? Common history, some shared conquests, a delight in ideas and people and living. But they will also be distinguished by their ability to listen to you. They will not be uncritical, but they will understand and accept you. You will be interested in each other's happiness and well-being. - Author: Margaux Bergen
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Margaux Bergen
#2. Oh, I don't mind his being wicked: he's all the better for that; and as for disliking him - I shouldn't greatly object to being Lady Ashby of Ashby Park, if I must marry. But if I could be always young, I would be always single. I should like to enjoy myself thoroughly, and coquet with all the world, till I am on the verge of being called an old maid; and then, to escape the infamy of that, after having made ten thousand conquests, to break all their hearts save one, by marrying some high-born, rich, indulgent husband, whom, on the other hand, fifty ladies were dying to have.'

'Well, as long as you entertain these views, keep single by all means, and never marry at all: not even to escape the infamy of old-maidenhood. - Author: Anne Bronte
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Anne Bronte
#3. Rivalry adds so much to the charm of one's conquests. - Author: Louisa May Alcott
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Louisa May Alcott
#4. September 10, 2001. A storm is brewing in New York City. A clash is about to begin. Tempers will soon rise as historical conquests and slights are remembered and renewed on the eve of this fight between ancient and embittered foes. Yes, the Boston Red Sox are playing the New York Yankees. - Author: Hugh Howey
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Hugh Howey
#5. The next day, the cycle starts again. We're set out like decorative plates in this cavernous architecture, and such a craggy dining hall it is. Not exactly a Claude Monet cottage, more of a Medieval bastion - a vestige of Roman conquests. It still moans with the rickety sounds of age. I can almost hear the grumblings of ancient inhabitants. - Author: Michael Ben Zehabe
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Michael Ben Zehabe
#6. In a general view, there are few conquests that repay the charge of making them, and mankind are pretty well convinced that it can never be worth their while to go to war for profit's sake. If they are made war upon, their country invaded, or their existence at stake, it is their duty to defend and preserve themselves, but in every other light, and from every other cause, is war inglorious and detestable. - Author: Thomas Paine
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Thomas Paine
#7. Nothing demonstrates so clearly as the unfolding of our conflict with Russia how essential it is that the Head of a State must be capable of swift, decisive action on his own responsibility, when a war seems to him to be inevitable. In a letter which we found on Stalin's son written by a friend, stands the following phrase : "I hope to be able to see my Anuschka once more before the promenade to Berlin."
If, in accordance with their plan, the Russians had been able to foresee our actions, it is, probable that nothing would have been able to stop their armoured units, for the highly developed road system of central Europe would greatly have favoured their advance. In any case, I take credit for the fact that we succeeded in making the Russians hold off right up to the moment when we launched our attack, and that we did so by entering into agreements which were favourable to their interests. Suppose for example that, when the Russians marched into Rumania, we had not been able to limit their conquests to Bessarabia, they would in one swoop have grabbed all the oilfields of the country, and we should have found ourselves, from the spring of that very year, completely frustrated as regards our supplies of petrol. - Author: Adolf Hitler
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Adolf Hitler
#8. It seems logical to suppose that history's pattern reflects innate differences among people themselves. Of course, we're taught that it's not polite to say so in public. We see in our daily lives that some of the conquered peoples continue to form an underclass, centuries after the conquests or slave imports took place. We're told that this too is to be attributed not to any biological shortcomings but to social disadvantages and limited opportunities.

Nevertheless, we have to wonder. We keep seeing all those glaring, persistent differences in peoples' status. We're assured that the seemingly transparent biological explanation for the world's inequalities as of A.D. 1500 is wrong, but we're not told what the correct explanation is. Until we have some convincing, detailed, agreed-upon explanation for the broad pattern of history, most people will continue to suspect that the racist biological explanation is correct after all. That seems to me the strongest argument for writing this book. - Author: Jared Diamond
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Jared Diamond
#9. The Mongol conquests are difficult to fathom. Although their most important technology was the horse, they conquered much of the known world from China to Europe, a series of wars that killed tens of millions of people, then a substantial chunk of the world's population. - Author: Max Fisher
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Max Fisher
#10. Come, and see the victories of the cross. Christ's wounds are thy healings, His agonies thy repose, His conflicts thy conquests, His groans thy songs, His pains thine ease, His shame thy glory, His death thy life, His sufferings thy salvation. - Author: Matthew Henry
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Matthew Henry
#11. Who, I ask, ever found salvation through the conquests of Alexander? What city was ever more wisely governed because of them, what individual improved? Many indeed you might find whom those conquests enriched, but not one whom they made wiser or more temperate than he was by nature, if indeed they have not made him more insolent and arrogant. Whereas all who now find their salvation in philosophy owe it to Socrates. - Author: Flavius Claudius Julianus
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Flavius Claudius Julianus
#12. Some crimes get honor and renown by being committed with more pomp, by a greater number, and in a higher degree of wickedness thanothers. Hence it is that public robberies, plunderings, and sackings have been looked upon as excellencies and noble achievements, and the seizing of whole countries, however unjustly and barbarously, is dignified with the glorious name of gaining conquests. - Author: Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
#13. I have a liking for energy and conquests. But I soon tire of what I have obtained. This is my great weakness. - Author: Albert Camus
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Albert Camus
#14. Religion and mythology, the only difference is a tally of conquests of one over the other... - Author: Jason R Jones
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Jason R Jones
#15. It is absolutely necessary, for the peace and safety of mankind, that some of earth's dark, dead corners and unplumbed depths be let alone; lest sleeping abnormalities wake to resurgent life, and blasphemously surviving nightmares squirm and splash out of their black lairs to newer and wider conquests. - Author: H.P. Lovecraft
Marocchi Conquests quotes by H.P. Lovecraft
#16. Then again we find that young girls in their hearts regard their domestic or other affairs as secondary things, if not as a mere jest. Love, conquests, and all that these include, such as dressing, dancing, and so on, they give their serious attention. - Author: Arthur Schopenhauer
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#17. Imhotep never attended university,
but was the father of medicine.
Nimrod never attended military academy,
but was the father of conquests.
Noah never attended seminary,
but was the father of prophecy.

Guru Nanak never attended university,
but inestimable admire him.
Mohammed never attended university,
but innumerable honor him.
Buddha never attended university,
but incalculable praise him.

King David never attended university,
but numberless respect him.
King Solomon never attended university,
but endless celebrate him.
King Jesus never attended university,
but countless worship Him. - Author: Matshona Dhliwayo
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#18. Impatience [ ... ] is a twentieth-century virtue. At twenty, when they saw, or thought they saw, what life could be, the sum of bliss it held, the endless conquests it allowed, they realised they would not have the strength to wait. Like anyone else, they could have made it; but all they wanted was to have it made. That is probably the sense in which they were what are commonly called intellectuals. - Author: Georges Perec
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Georges Perec
#19. [T]he regime of diversions, surrogates, and tranquilizers that pass for today's 'distractions' and 'amusements' does not yet allow the modern woman to foresee the crisis that awaits her when she recognizes how meaningless are those male occupations for which she has fought, when the illusions and the euphoria of her conquests vanish, and when she realizes that, given the climate of dissolution, family and children can no longer give her a sense of satisfaction in life. - Author: Julius Evola
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Julius Evola
#20. It is common knowledge that no man that women flock to boasts of his conquests. Those who do, lie. - Author: Isabel Allende
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Isabel Allende
#21. The weight of the world is on our shoulders, its vision is through
our eyes; if we blink or look aside, or turn back to finger what
Plato said or remember Napoleon and his conquests, we inflict
on the world the injury of some obliquity. This is life ... - Author: Virginia Woolf
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Virginia Woolf
#22. A sad thing! What it termed its concessions were our conquests; what it termed our encroachments were our rights. When the hour seemed to it to have come, the Restoration, supposing itself victorious over Bonaparte and well-rooted in the country, that is to say, believing itself to be strong and deep, abruptly decided on its plan of action, and risked its stroke. One morning it drew itself up before the face of France, and, elevating its voice, it contested the collective title and the individual right of the nation to sovereignty, of the citizen to liberty. In other words, it denied to the nation that which made it a nation, and to the citizen that which made him a citizen. This is the foundation of - Author: Victor Hugo
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Victor Hugo
#23. The child's conquests of independence are the basic steps in what is called his 'natural development'. - Author: Maria Montessori
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Maria Montessori
#24. Pity is the most pleasant feeling in those who have not much pride, and have no prospect of great conquests: the easy prey - and that is what every sufferer is - is for them an enchanting thing. - Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#25. What, my friends, is the conquest of one nation by another? It is meaningless. Each produces the same result. But those fierce fights, when in the dawn of the ages the cave-dwellers held their own against the tier folk, or the elephants first found that they had a master, those were the real conquests - the victories that count. - Author: Arthur Conan Doyle
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#26. Nature to all things fixed the limits fit
And wisely curbed proud man's pretending wit.
As on the land while here the ocean gains.
In other parts it leaves wide sandy plains
Thus in the soul while memory prevails,
The solid power of understanding fails
Where beams of warm imagination play,
The memory's soft figures melt away
One science only will one genius fit,
So vast is art, so narrow human wit
Not only bounded to peculiar arts,
But oft in those confined to single parts
Like kings, we lose the conquests gained before,
By vain ambition still to make them more
Each might his several province well command,
Would all but stoop to what they understand. - Author: Alexander Pope
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Alexander Pope
#27. Islam began as a tribal religion, whereas Christianity began more as an individual or family religion. Christianity struck out from Palestine, converting one person or one family at a time. After the initial successes and conquests by Mohammed and his tribe, conversions were as much military as spiritual. Mohammed was both a political and military genius and used his success and charisma to convince the superstitious tribes around him that he had Allah on his side. As such, the sword was the instrument of persuasion. - Author: Darrel Ray
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Darrel Ray
#28. Really?" [Catarina] said when he opened the door. " Two years and then you come back and don't even call for two weeks? And then it's 'Come over, I need you'? You didn't even tell me you were home, Magnus."
"I'm home", he said, giving what he considered to be his most winning smile. The smiling took a bit of effort, but hopefully it looked genuine.
"Don't even try that face with me. I am not one of your conquests, Magnus. I am your friend. We are supposed to get pizza, not do the nasty."
"The nasty? But I-"
"Don't." She held up a warning finger. "I mean it. I almost didn't come. But you sounded so pathetic on the phone I had to. - Author: Cassandra Clare
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Cassandra Clare
#29. History will never change because of politics or conquests or theories or wars; that's mere repitition, it's been going on since the beginning of time. History will only change when we are able to use the energy of love, just as we use energy of the wind, the seas, the atom. - Author: Paulo Coelho
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Paulo Coelho
#30. The object of mathematical rigor is to sanction and legitimize the conquests of intuition, and there was never any other object for it. - Author: Jacques Hadamard
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Jacques Hadamard
#31. As always throughout history, she thought, there are no real victors in conquests; they are merely the planners for more conflict in the future. The - Author: Barbara H. Martin
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Barbara H. Martin
#32. The conquests of England - every single one of them bloody - are part of what Americans have in mind when they speak of England's glory. In the United States, violence and heroism have been made synonymous when it comes to Blacks. And the only way to defeat Malcom's point is to concede and then ask oneself why this is so. - Author: James Baldwin
Marocchi Conquests quotes by James Baldwin
#33. I can't help but wonder how the old Empire would have handled the crisis. I hope you will forgive my partisan attitude but it seems to me that the Emperor would have mobilized his entire armament at the first threat and dealt with the Yuuzhan Vong in an efficient and expeditious manner through the use of overwhelming force. Certainly better than Borsk Fey'lya's policy if I understood it correctly as a policy of negotiating with the invaders at the same time as he was fighting them sending signals of weakness to a ruthless enemy who used negotiation only as a cover for further conquests."

"That's not what the Empire would have done Commander. What the Empire would have done was build a super-colossal Yuuzhan Vong-killing battle machine. They would have called it the Nova Colossus or the Galaxy Destructor or the Nostril of Palpatine or something equally grandiose. They would have spent billions of credits employed thousands of contractors and subcontractors and equipped it with the latest in death-dealing technology. And you know what would have happened It wouldn't have worked. They'd forget to bolt down a metal plate over an access hatch leading to the main reactors or some other mistake and a hotshot enemy pilot would have dropped a bomb down there and blow the whole thing up. Now that's what the Empire would have done."

Marocchi Conquests quotes by Walter Jon Williams
#34. Much of the world today, including the United States, is still living in the social, cultural, and political aftermath of Britain's cultural achievements, its industrial revolution, its government of checks and balances, and its conquests around the world. - Author: Thomas Sowell
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Thomas Sowell
#35. Discretion is a virtue. A woman's reputation directly influences her social status. This is why women are easier to get into bed when they are on vacation - - they are more likely to indulge in an adventure that they trust holds no social consequences. This is also why women are appreciative of men who understand and practice discretion.
A Venusian artist will never brag publicly about his sexual conquests unless doing so (with her permission) legitimately raises her social status. If you brag, not only will it eventually get back to her, but also any other women who hears it will be on notice that sexual relations with you carry social consequences. So, for example, when you obtain a phone number from a woman, don't walk straight to your friends and high-five them for all to see. - Author: Mystery
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Mystery
#36. At length weariness succeeds to labor, and the mind lies at ease in the contemplation of her own attainments without any desire of new conquests or excursions. This is the age of recollection and narrative; the opinions are settled, and the avenues of apprehension shut against any new intelligence; the days that are to follow must pass in the inculcation of precepts already collected, and assertion of tenets already received; nothing is henceforward so odious as opposition, so insolent as doubt, or so dangerous as novelty. - Author: Samuel Johnson
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Samuel Johnson
#37. To do a little good is more than to accomplish great conquests. - Author: Gautama Buddha
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Gautama Buddha
#38. The fame of heroes owes little to the extent of their conquests and all to the success of the tributes paid to them. - Author: Jean Genet
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Jean Genet
#39. Fight them with your faith in God, fight them in defense of every free honorable woman and every innocent child, and in defense of the values of manhood and the military honor ... Fight them because with their defeat you will be at the last entrance of the conquest of all conquests. The war will end with ... dignity, glory, and triumph for your people, army, and nation. - Author: Saddam Hussein
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Saddam Hussein
#40. Ruin seize thee, ruthless king! Confusion on thy banners wait! Though fann'd by Conquest's crimson wing, They mock the air with idle state. - Author: Thomas Gray
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Thomas Gray
#41. I don't love any of my old boyfriends anymore. I'm not sure I ever did, and I'm not sure if at the time I thought I was sure. My mother says that's normal, that men are proud of every one of their conquests, and women wish they could forget it all. She says that's an essential gender difference, and I can't say I disprove her theory. What keeps me from full revulsion, from wanting the sexual equivalent of an annulment, is thinking about what I got from each one that I still hold on to now. - Author: Lena Dunham
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Lena Dunham
#42. By the age of three, the child has already laid down the foundations of his personality as a human being, and only then does he need the help of special scholastic influences. So great are the conquests he has made that one may well say: the child who goes to school at three is already a little man. - Author: Maria Montessori
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Maria Montessori
#43. It had borne all the ships whose names are like jewels flashing in the night of time, from the Golden Hind returning with her round flanks full of treasure, to be visited by the Queen's Highness and thus pass out of the gigantic tale, to the Erebus and Terror, bound on other conquests - and that never returned. It had known the ships and the men. They had sailed from Deptford, from Greenwich, from Erith - the adventurers and the settlers; kings' ships and the ships of men on 'Change; captains, admirals, the dark "interlopers" of the Eastern trade, and the commissioned "generals" of East India fleets. Hunters for gold or pursuers of fame, they all had gone out on that stream, bearing the sword, and often the torch, messengers of the might within the land, bearers of a spark from the sacred fire. What greatness had not floated on the ebb of that river into the mystery of an unknown earth! . . . The dreams of men, the seed of commonwealths, the germs of empires. - Author: Joseph Conrad
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Joseph Conrad
#44. Seven million German dead, including the five hundred thousand killed by the Allied bombing campaign. The sixty million dead overall of the Second World War, including eleven million murdered in the Holocaust. The sixteen million of the First World War, over four million in Vietnam, forty million to the Mongol conquests, three and a half million to the Hundred Years War, the fall of Rome took seven million, the Napoleonic Wars took four million, twenty million to the Taiping Rebellion. And so on and so on and so on, all the way back to - Author: Kate Atkinson
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Kate Atkinson
#45. Assyria soon discovered a painful truth: empires are like Ponzi schemes: financial frauds in which previous investors are paid returns out of new investors' deposits. The costs of holding imperial territory can only be underwritten by loot and tribute extracted by constant new conquests; empires must continue to expand if they are not to collapse. - Author: Paul Kriwaczek
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Paul Kriwaczek
#46. As William Bernstein describes in 'A Splendid Exchange', 'The Arabs, invigorated by their conquests, experienced a cultural renaissance that extended to many fields; the era's greatest literature, art, mathematics, and astronomy was not found in Rome, Constantinople, or Paris, but in Damascus, Baghdad and Cordova. - Author: Christopher Lascelles
Marocchi Conquests quotes by Christopher Lascelles
