Reclamation Act quotes by Tom Watson
#2. I wrote a letter to my Dad - I wrote, "I really enjoy being here," but I accidentally wrote rarely instead of really. But I still wanted to use it, so I wrote, "I rarely drive steamboats, Dad - there's a lot of stuff you don't know about me. Quit trying to act like I'm a steamboat operator." This letter took a harsh turn right away. - Author: Mitch Hedberg

That'said a brave god and bears celestial liquor.

#4. Guilty people apologize and also take steps to avoid repetition. Shame, in contrast, is a more global emotion, which can emerge in response to the same kind of wrong act and violation of standards. It may develop earlier in life than guilt-- guilt requires more cognitive sorting capacity-- but above all it emphasizes self-abasement. It is the self that is at fault, not the commission of the act. This creates greater pain and intensity than guilt. A shamed person feels very bad indeed-- but also makes it more difficult to escape. - Author: Peter N. Stearns
Reclamation Act quotes by Peter N. Stearns

Reclamation Act quotes by David Mamet
#6. Act on your inner guidance, and give up your need for 'proof' that your inner guidance is authentic. The more you ask for proof, the less likely you are to receive any. - Author: Caroline Myss
Reclamation Act quotes by Caroline Myss
#7. It's basically an act of faith, hoping that a small idea will unspool into a bigger whole. Sometimes, in fact often, it doesn't and it just runs out of steam. The hope for me is that it will snowball. the best way to put it is that I have no particular method or technique per se, other than this: I plan nothing, I outline nothing, I start with an idea or an image or a line of dialogue and see where it leads me. Because I never know what the next page will contain, let alone the end of the book, I am perpetually surprised by the course that my characters take. The writing process is as full of surprises and twists for me as the reading experience is for my readers. I love the spontaneity of writing this way, the possibilities left open, the feeling that I am not constrained or committed to any given path. Every day, I am surprised by something. It may not be the most efficient way of writing, but it has served me well thus far. - Author: Khaled Hosseini
Reclamation Act quotes by Khaled Hosseini
#8. People like to talk more than they like to act. They like to sit there and complain and vent. Somehow they think that changes things, when it doesn't. - Author: James Patterson
Reclamation Act quotes by James Patterson
#9. The purest surrealist act is walking into a crowd with a loaded gun and firing into it randomly - Author: Andre Breton
Reclamation Act quotes by Andre Breton
#10. Art as a fantasy has been one of my earliest experiences. I suppose a lot of my childhood was a fantasy that involved getting away from things I didn't like. Fortunately it had some relationship to reality so that later I was able to, to some extent, act as I imagined I might. - Author: Jasper Johns
Reclamation Act quotes by Jasper Johns
#11. Writing is such lonely work that I try to keep myself cheered up. If something strikes me as funny in the act of writing, I throw it in just to amuse myself. If I think it's funny I assume a few other people will find it funny, and that seems to me to be a good day's work. - Author: William Zinsser
Reclamation Act quotes by William Zinsser
#12. If you want to live in this world, doing the duty of life, knowing the blessings of it, doing your work heartily, and yet not absorbed by it, remember that the one power whereby you can so act is, that all shall be consecrated to Christ, and done for His sake. - Author: Alexander MacLaren
Reclamation Act quotes by Alexander MacLaren
#13. If we refuse to forgive, we have stepped into dangerous waters. First, refusing to forgive is to put ourselves in the place of God, as though vengeance were our prerogative, not his. Second, unforgiveness says God's wrath is insufficient. For the unbeliever, we are saying that an eternity in hell is not enough; they need our slap in the face or cold shoulder to "even the scales" of justice. For the believer, we are saying that Christ's humiliation and death are not enough. In other words, we shake our fists at God and say, "Your standards may have been satisfied, but my standard is higher!" Finally, refusing to forgive is the highest form of arrogance. Here we stand forgiven. And as we bask in the forgiveness of a perfectly holy and righteous God, we turn to our brother and say, "My sins are forgivable, but yours are not." In other words, we act as though the sins of others are too significant to forgive while simultaneously believing that ours are not significant enough to matter. - Author: Voddie T. Baucham Jr.
Reclamation Act quotes by Voddie T. Baucham Jr.
#14. You're going to act like a happy man. I know, I know. It's the hardest role in the world. - Author: Pat Conroy
Reclamation Act quotes by Pat Conroy

Reclamation Act quotes by Todd Park
#16. Moreover, he objected, "I have never done an official act with a view to promote my own personal aggrandizement, and I don't like to begin now. - Author: Doris Kearns Goodwin
Reclamation Act quotes by Doris Kearns Goodwin
#17. Nature is the system of laws established by the Creator for the existence of things and for the succession of creatures. Nature is not a thing, because this thing would be everything. Nature is not a creature, because this creature would be God. But one can consider it as an immense vital power, which encompasses all, which animates all, and which, subordinated to the power of the first Being, has begun to act only by his order, and still acts only by his concourse or consent ... Time, space and matter are its means, the universe its object, motion and life its goal. - Author: Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
Reclamation Act quotes by Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
#18. A habit is a stable disposition to act in a certain way, good or evil. Virtues are good habits; vices are bad habits. - Author: Peter Kreeft
Reclamation Act quotes by Peter Kreeft
#19. That I didn't see the end of me and Maddie coming seems impossible to me now. But at the time I had this notion that even though my own feelings for my girlfriend had begun to cool not long after the spectacular prize of her was attained, to part ways on this basis would be as much an act of infidelity toward myself. It unsettled me that the Amar of a year ago could be so inconsistent with the Amar of today, and I suppose that in my determination to pretend, at least, that nothing had changed - that I was not so fickle and vain as to want a woman only until she had been won - I did not sufficiently entertain the possibility that Maddie herself was capable of changing, too. - Author: Lisa Halliday
Reclamation Act quotes by Lisa Halliday
#20. Life (as you call it) is an opportunity for you to know experientially what you already know conceptually. You need learn nothing to do this. You need merely remember what you already know, and act on it. - Author: Neale Donald Walsch
Reclamation Act quotes by Neale Donald Walsch
#21. There is no doubt that the time to act is now. It is now that timely action can avert disaster. It is now that with foresight and will such action can be taken without disturbing the essence of our way of life, by adjusting behaviour, but not altering it entirely. - Author: Tony Blair
Reclamation Act quotes by Tony Blair
#22. When the act of reflection takes place in the mind, when we look at ourselves in the light of thought, we discover that our life is embosomed in beauty. - Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
Reclamation Act quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#23. Carter is doing a high-wire act over a cesspool, preaching all the way. Sinclair Lewis, thou shouldst be living in this hour. We have a Warren Harding impersonating Elmer Gantry. - Author: Jimmy Carter
Reclamation Act quotes by Jimmy Carter
#24. COURAGE isn't an absence of fear. It is doing what you are afraid to do, letting go of the familiar and forging ahead into new territory. What I have discovered is that the best leaders have the courage to act - are willing to take the risk, make the statement, point the way, lead the way - when others hesitate out of fear. Effective leadership requires the ability to stand up, stand out, and the conviction to do it. I have never known a successful leader that was not courageous. - Author: John C. Maxwell
Reclamation Act quotes by John C. Maxwell
#25. So your husband's home with the little ones? - it'll be good for him, let him see what it's like with kids all day, right? men never understand until you ask them to do it and then they say, Well, the kids only act like this with me, it has to be much easier when you're with them, isn't that the truth? They're really thinking, You can't possibly put up with this day after day, can you? - Author: Alice McDermott
Reclamation Act quotes by Alice McDermott
#26. As we pass one step, and as we recognize it as being behind us, the next one already rises up before us. By the time we learn everything, we slowly come to understand it. And while you come to understand everything gradually, you don't remain idle at any moment: you are already attending to your new business; you live, you act, you move, you fulfill the new requirements of every new step of development. If, on the other hand, there were no schedule, no gradual enlightenment, if all the knowledge descended on you at once right there in one spot, then it's possible neither your brains nor your heart could bear it. - Author: Imre Kertesz
Reclamation Act quotes by Imre Kertesz
#27. By the time we grow up we become masters at dissimulation, at cultivating a self that the world cannot probe. But we pay a price. After years of turning people away, of protecting our inner self, of cultivating it by living in a different world, of furnishing this world with our fantasies and dreams - lo and behold we find that we are hopelessly separated from everyone else. We have become victims of our own art. We touch people on the outsides of their bodies, and they us, but we cannot get at their insides and cannot reveal our insides to them. This is one of the great tragedies of our interiority - it is utterly personal and unrevealable. Often we want to say something unusually intimate to a spouse, a parent, a friend, communicate something of how we are really feeling about a sunset, who we really feel we are - only to fall strangely and miserably flat. Once in a great while we succeed, sometimes more with one person, less or never with others. But the occasional break-through only proves the rule. You reach out with a disclosure, fail, and fall back bitterly into yourself. We emit huge globs of love to our parents and spouses, and the glob slithers away in exchange of words that are somehow beside the point of what we are trying to say. People seem to keep bumping up against each other with their exteriors and falling away from each other. The cartoonist Jules Feiffer is the modern master of this aspect of the human tragedy. Take even the sexual act - the most intimate - Author: Ernest Becker
Reclamation Act quotes by Ernest Becker
#28. Only unconditional grace can transform a hardened heart into a grateful heart. Only a free gift can demolish any notion of quid pro quo. Only an utterly merciful act of love can fashion a new creation capable of love. As theologian Karl Barth puts it, 'As the beloved of God, we have no alternative but to love him in return. - Author: Mark Galli
Reclamation Act quotes by Mark Galli
#29. If I care to listen to every criticism, let alone act on them, then this shop may as well be closed for all other businesses. I have learned to do my best, and if the end result is good then I do not care for any criticism, but if the end result is not good, then even the praise of ten angels would not make the difference. - Author: Abraham Lincoln
Reclamation Act quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#30. But if I hope to understand in order to accept things - the act of surrender will never happen. I must take the plunge all at once, a plunge that includes comprehension and especially incomprehension. And who am I to dare to think? What I have to do is surrender. How is it done? I know however that only by walking do you know how to walk and - miracle - find yourself walking. - Author: Clarice Lispector
Reclamation Act quotes by Clarice Lispector
#31. We are wide open and vulnerable and in all likelihood an activist judge will strike down our Defense of Marriage Act, our state law against gay marriage, this year. And in all likelihood, we will have gay marriage in 2004 in Minnesota , if we don't get this amendment on the ballot for November. - Author: Michele Bachmann
Reclamation Act quotes by Michele Bachmann
#32. There is no act, however virtuous, for which ingenuity may not find some bad motive. - Author: Thomas Jefferson
Reclamation Act quotes by Thomas Jefferson
