Histhry is a post-mortem examination. It tellsye what a counthry died iv. But I'd like to know what it lived iv. ~ Finley Peter Dunne
Peter Maurer quotes by Finley Peter Dunne
She stared at Peter, and she realized that in that one moment, when she hadn't been thinking, she knew exactly what he'd felt as he moved through the school with his backpack and his guns. Every kid in this school played a role: jock, brain, beauty, freak. All Peter had done was what they all secretly dreamed of: be someone, even for just nineteen minutes, who nobody else was allowed to judge. ~ Jodi Picoult
Peter Maurer quotes by Jodi Picoult
We live in an age of unprecedented opportunity: If you've got ambition and smarts, you can rise to the top of your chosen profession, regardless of where you started out. ~ Peter Drucker
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter Drucker
Of the 55 refineries closed in America in the last 10 years, they were all closed for economic reasons, mostly oil company mergers. Not a single one was closed for environmental purposes or objections. ~ Peter DeFazio
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter DeFazio
Usually, I get hired because I'm tall. ~ Peter Falk
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter Falk
The design of those commissioners, frigates and warlike force is directed rather against Long Island and these your Honors' possessions, than to the imagined reform of New England. ~ Peter Stuyvesant
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter Stuyvesant
In the twenty-first century the techniques of the political technologists have become centralized and systematized, coordinated out of the office of the presidential administration, where Surkov would sit behind a desk on which were phones bearing the names of all the "independent" party leaders, calling and directing them at any moment, day or night. The brilliance of this new type of authoritarianism is that instead of simply oppressing opposition, as had been the case with twentieth-century strains, it climbs inside all ideologies and movements, exploiting and rendering them absurd. One moment Surkov would fund civic forums and human rights NGOs, the next he would quietly support nationalist movements that accuse the NGOs of being tools of the West. With a flourish he sponsored lavish arts festivals for the most provocative modern artists in Moscow, then supported Orthodox fundamentalists, dressed all in black and carrying crosses, who in turn attacked the modern art exhibitions. The Kremlin's idea is to own all forms of political discourse, to not let any independent movements develop outside of its walls. Its Moscow can feel like an oligarchy in the morning and a democracy in the afternoon, a monarchy for dinner and a totalitarian state by bedtime. ~ Peter Pomerantsev
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter Pomerantsev
Breakthroughs come when people learn how to take the time to stop and examine their assumptions. ~ Peter M. Senge
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter M. Senge
To quote Alfred Einstein: 'a follower tells, but a leader shows. ~ Peter Lerangis
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter Lerangis
rats?" "I just said that." "But the attic is clean." "Well, okay, we've got tidy rats!" "No rats." "Karl, I heard them last night." "Maybe plumbing," Karl probed; "maybe boards." "Maybe rats! Will you buy the damn traps and quit arguing?" Bustling away, Karl, said, "Yes! I go now!" "No not now, Karl! The ~ William Peter Blatty
Peter Maurer quotes by William Peter Blatty
My actual childhood, as opposed to my adolescence, was not spent in London. ~ Peter Shaffer
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter Shaffer
Today's 'best practices' lead to dead ends; the best paths are new and untried. ~ Peter Thiel
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter Thiel
What is there about the notion of a person, at law, that makes every living member of the species Homo sapiens a person, irrespective of their mental capacities, but excludes every nonhuman animal - again, irrespective of their mental capacities? ~ Peter Singer
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter Singer
(Peter) If you don't share the lows, it seems you might stop sharing the highs as well. ~ Nancy Woodruff
Peter Maurer quotes by Nancy Woodruff
How terrible to be forgotten by the god that made you, even if you're just a room. How could you love something that could do that anytime? ~ Peter S. Beagle
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter S. Beagle
Zen is really just a reminder to stay alive and to be awake. We tend to daydream all the time, speculating about the future and dwelling on the past. Zen practice is about appreciating your life in this moment. If you are truly aware of five minutes a day, then you are doing pretty well. We are beset by both the future and the past, and there is no reality apart from the here and now. ~ Peter Matthiessen
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter Matthiessen
The problem with K-12 education is socialism and the solution is capitalism. ~ Peter Brimelow
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter Brimelow
We sinned for no reason but an incomprehensible lack of love, and He saved us for no reason but an incomprehensible excess of love. ~ Peter Kreeft
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter Kreeft
Remember me,"
whispers the dust. ~ Peter Huchel
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter Huchel
Yet, like the sea and the gallows, London refuses nobody. ~ Peter Ackroyd
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter Ackroyd
Love is unconditional acceptance. That quality is also our essential nature, who we really are. ~ Peter Shepherd
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter Shepherd
Oh, fatherhood has a very humanising effect on a bloke like me in the military. As a dad, you become absolutely aware of your own human frailty and a need to be nurturing and compassionate and fatherly ~ Peter Cosgrove
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter Cosgrove
Of all the arguments against voluntary euthanasia, the most influential is the 'slippery slope': once we allow doctors to kill patients, we will not be able to limit the killing to those who want to die. ~ Peter Singer
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter Singer
Peter always brings death with him, along with spinach or nuts. He said he'd seen 20 cases of West Nile during the week and five deaths from it. He also said two people had died from food allergies.
"They're so hungry they're taking their chances eating foods they're seriously allergic to," he said. ~ Susan Beth Pfeffer
Peter Maurer quotes by Susan Beth Pfeffer
Dwarves are very much of the earth and feel connected to the earth; considering gravity, their weight is low, but they're not small. ~ Peter Hambleton
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter Hambleton
Our prevailing system of management has destroyed our people. People are born with intrinsic motivation, self-respect, dignity, curiosity to learn, joy in learning. The forces of destruction begin with toddlers - a prize for the best Halloween costume, grades in school, gold stars - and on up through the university. On the job, people, teams, and divisions are ranked, reward for the top, punishment for the bottom. Management by Objectives, quotas, incentive pay, business plans, put together separately, division by division, cause further loss, unknown and unknowable. ~ Peter M. Senge
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter M. Senge
...pot roast. It could be reheated. It might
taste like a sneaker, but it would be warm. ~ Peter Benchley
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter Benchley
If civilians are killed in an attack on a military installation, it is certainly regrettable, but I will not morally blame the I.R.A. for it. ~ Peter T. King
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter T. King
There's a thing at the Museum of Natural History in New York, where I live: they have a stairwell where you follow the beginning and the course of this planet, and it's a very long stairwell, and you follow, and you follow, and then you reach the top, and we're, like, half a step on the stairwell - the timeline for us on this planet. ~ Peter Dinklage
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter Dinklage
The State is only one of the forms assumed by society in the course of history. Why then make no distinction between what is permanent and what is accidental? ~ Peter Kropotkin
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter Kropotkin
But then I quite enjoy when something goes wrong, because when I watch DJs that take it very seriously, it's nice when you make a mistake and laugh about it. ~ Peter Hook
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter Hook
Friend, let me tell you this: telling in stories often attempts to simplify, to clarify, but when it's really working, telling complicates and adds dimension to the experience of the story. It interprets situations and characters, and it invites us to do the same. It involves us. (Peter Rock) ~ Tin House Books
Peter Maurer quotes by Tin House Books
I'm not a regret guy. ~ Peter Jackson
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter Jackson
I shall borrow two words used for a slightly different purpose by the great demographer Alfred Lotka to distinguish between the two systems of heredity enjoyed by man: endosomatic or internal heredity for the ordinary or genetical heredity we have in common with animals; and exosomatic or external heredity for the non-genetic heredity that is peculiarly our own - the heredity that is mediated through tradition, by which I mean the transfer of information through non-genetic channels from one generation to the next. ~ Peter Medawar
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter Medawar
When people read, they hear voices and see images in their head. This production is total synesthesia and something close to madness. A great book is an hallucinated IMAX film for one. The author had a feeling, which he turned into words, and the reader gets a feeling from those words - maybe it's the same feeling; maybe it's not. As Peter Mendelsund wrote in What We See When We Read, a book is a coproduction. A reader both performs the book and attends the performance. She is conductor, orchestra, and audience. A book, whether nonfiction of fiction, is an "invitation to daydream. ~ Derek Thompson
Peter Maurer quotes by Derek Thompson
The first Sunday after my coming to the plantation, he called them together, and began to read the twelfth chapter of Luke. When he came to the 47th verse, he looked deliberately around him, and continued - "And that servant which knew his lord's will," - here he paused, looking around more deliberately than before, and again proceeded - "which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself" - here was another pause - "prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes." "D'ye hear that?" demanded Peter, emphatically. "Stripes," he repeated, slowly and distinctly, taking off his spectacles, preparatory to making a few remarks. "That nigger that don't take care - that don't obey his lord - that's his master - d'ye see? - that 'ere nigger shall be beaten with many stripes. Now, 'many' signifies a great many - forty, a hundred, a hundred and fifty lashes. That's Scripter! ~ Solomon Northup
Peter Maurer quotes by Solomon Northup
I ended up realizing that NASA was unlikely to get me into space, or get me to the moon or beyond, and I needed some other way to drive this. ~ Peter Diamandis
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter Diamandis
The real key to making money in stocks is not to get scared out of them. ~ Peter Lynch
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter Lynch
May your crust be crisp and your bread always rise! ~ Peter Reinhart
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter Reinhart
Koturovic somehow came up with the idea there were some kind of creatures - big, smart, scary alpha predators - living in these higher dimensions. Telepathically-sensitive people sensed them all through history and that's where all our myths about demons and monsters come from. It's their presence leaking through. When the dimensional barriers were shattered, according to him, these things would come through and eat everything they could until the barriers reasserted themselves. Kind of the universe's method of population control. ~ Peter Clines
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter Clines
Sacraments are that literal, that physical. Salvation is very physical. If the woman with the hemorrhage had touched the hem of St. Peter's garment instead of Christ's, her faith alone would not have healed her until it was joined to His body by her touch. - Unless God had willed to heal her that way, of course. God can work outside his sacraments, and often does. There ~ Peter Kreeft
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter Kreeft
He said that for wickedness to succeed all it takes is for decent people to do nothing. ~ Peter F. Hamilton
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter F. Hamilton
Only mediocrities rise to the top in a system that won't tolerate wave making. ~ Laurence J. Peter
Peter Maurer quotes by Laurence J. Peter
To me, Tris has always seemed magnetic in a way I could not describe, and that she was not aware of. I have never feared or hated her for it, the way Peter does, but then, I have always been in a position of strength myself, not threatened by her. Now that I have lost that position, I can feel the tug toward resentment, as strong and sure as a hand around my arm. ~ Veronica Roth
Peter Maurer quotes by Veronica Roth
There are no roads west of Pohkara, which is the last outpost of the modern world; in one days walk we are a century away. ~ Peter Matthiessen
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter Matthiessen
Science only answers the question, How does it work? Or at most, What's there? Science asks what and how, philosophy asks why, myth and religion ask who. Who's in charge here? Who's the author? That's what we really long to know. ~ Peter Kreeft
Peter Maurer quotes by Peter Kreeft
