#1. Twitter, Reddit, Tumblr, Instagram, all these companies are businesses first, but, as a close second, they're demographers of unprecedented reach, thoroughness, and importance. Practically as an accident, digital data can now show us how we fight, how we love, how we age, who we are, and how we're changing. All we have to do is look: - Author: Christian Rudder

Rudder quotes by Christian Rudder
#4. If you take good care of any disease by eating well, sleeping well, being aware of your health, consciously wanting to be well, not smoking, et cetera, you are doing all the things you should be doing anyway, but somehow having a disease makes them easier to do. A human without a disease is like a ship without a rudder. - Author: Mark Vonnegut
Rudder quotes by Mark Vonnegut
#5. On loof, literally 'on rudder', was a Dutch phrase spoken by the captain of a vessel when he wanted to steer a course away from a hazard such as a reef. It became aloof, a word that extended this idea of avoidance and evasion. - Author: Henry Hitchings
Rudder quotes by Henry Hitchings
#6. The course of the flight up and down was exceedingly erratic, partly due to the irregularity of the air, and partly to lack of experience in handling this machine. The control of the front rudder was difficult on account of its being balanced too near the center. - Author: Orville Wright

Rudder quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#15. The plane was on descent. Reacher could feel it in his ears. And he could feel abrupt turns. The pilot was military, so he was using the rudder. Civilian pilots avoid using the rudder. Using the rudder makes the plane slew, like a car skids. Passengers don't like the feeling. So civilian pilots turn by juicing the engines on one side and backing off on the others. Then the plane comes around smoothly. But military pilots don't care about their passengers' comfort. It's not like they've bought tickets. - Author: Lee Child
Rudder quotes by Lee Child
#16. people can feel the math behind things, especially, thankfully, moms. - Author: Christian Rudder
Rudder quotes by Christian Rudder
#17. [I]f a man bred to the seafaring life, and accustomed to think and talk only of matters relating to navigation, enters into discourse upon any other subject; it is well known, that the language and the notions proper to his own profession are infused into every subject, and all things are measured by the rules of navigation: and if he should take it into his head to philosophize concerning the faculties of the mind, it cannot be doubted, but he would draw his notions from the fabric of the ship, and would find in the mind, sails, masts, rudder, and compass. - Author: Thomas Reid
Rudder quotes by Thomas Reid
#18. when you pit women against one another, keep us shackled by shame and hunger, obsessing over our flaws rather than our power and potential; when you leverage all of that to sap our money and our time - that moves the rudder of the world. It steers humanity toward conservatism and walls and the narrow interests of men, and it keeps us adrift in waters where women's safety and humanity are secondary to men's pleasure and convenience. I - Author: Lindy West
Rudder quotes by Lindy West
#19. When we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we also guide the whole animal. James 3:3 A vital element in learning to walk by faith and obedience is learning to talk by faith and obedience. We might think of it like this: God's words are omnipotent. Our words are potent. Both the Bible and our own personal experience teach us that human words possess a great deal of power. James 3:4 compares the tongue to a small rudder with the power to steer a large ship. James 3:6 compares the tongue to a fire that can corrupt and set aflame the whole person. Our words are potent no matter how we use them, but what would happen if we allowed God to take hold of them? - Author: Beth Moore
Rudder quotes by Beth Moore
#20. These great turning-days of life cast no shadow before, slip by unconsciously. Only a trifle, a little turn of the rudder, and the ship goes to heaven or hell. - Author: Rebecca Harding Davis
Rudder quotes by Rebecca Harding Davis
#21. On the corporate side, the upshot of our data (the benefit to us) isn't all that interesting unless you're an economist. In theory, your data means ads are better targeted, which means less marketing spend is wasted, which means lower prices. At the very least, the data they sell means you get to use genuinely useful services like Facebook and Google without paying money for them. - Author: Christian Rudder
Rudder quotes by Christian Rudder
#22. Clearly security without values is like a ship without a rudder. But values without security are like a rudder without a ship. - Author: Henry A. Kissinger
Rudder quotes by Henry A. Kissinger

Rudder, anchor, oars,
And the fear of going down. - Author: Antonio Machado
Rudder quotes by Antonio Machado

Rudder quotes by Christian Rudder
#25. In any group of women who are all equally good-looking, the number of messages they get is highly correlated to the variance: from the pageant queens to the most homely women to the people right in between, the individuals who get the most affection will be the polarizing ones. - Author: Christian Rudder
Rudder quotes by Christian Rudder
#26. If employers begin to use algorithms to infer how intelligent you are or whether you use drugs, then your only choice will be to game the system - or, - Author: Christian Rudder
Rudder quotes by Christian Rudder

Rudder quotes by Nguyen Cao Ky
#28. When you approach spirituality as an adventure of being alive, you start as you would any adventure
with a sense of mystery and not-knowing. Instead of searching for answers that make you feel safe, you set out into the vastness of life and death, with a willingness to continually grow. You open up to the possibility that your ordinary life is an extraordinary adventure, and that your joys and sorrows have meaning. Spiritual practice becomes your rudder, offering direction and insight and discretion as you venture into the unknown. - Author: Elizabeth Lesser
Rudder quotes by Elizabeth Lesser

Rudder quotes by Christian Rudder
#31. I promise my students that if they take the time to figure out their life purpose, they'll look back on it as the most important thing they discovered while at school. If they don't figure it out, they will just sail off without a rudder and get buffeted in the very rough seas of life. - Author: Clayton Christensen
Rudder quotes by Clayton Christensen
#32. If you've ever signed up for a website and given a fake zip code or a fake birthday, you have violated the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. Any child under thirteen who visits newyorktimes.com violates their Terms of Service and is a criminal - not just in theory, but according to the working doctrine of the Department of Justice.1 The examples I've laid out are extreme, sure, but the laws involved are so broadly written as to ensure that, essentially, every Internet-using American is a tort-feasing felon on a lifelong spree of depraved web browsing. - Author: Christian Rudder
Rudder quotes by Christian Rudder

Rudder quotes by Thomas Carlyle

Rudder quotes by Bill Harry
#35. Without anxiety and illness I should have been like a ship without a rudder. - Author: Edvard Munch
Rudder quotes by Edvard Munch
#36. To the Harbormaster"

I wanted to be sure to reach you;
though my ship was on the way it got caught
in some moorings. I am always tying up
and then deciding to depart. In storms and
at sunset, with the metallic coils of the tide
around my fathomless arms, I am unable
to understand the forms of my vanity
or I am hard alee with my Polish rudder
in my hand and the sun sinking. To
you I offer my hull and the tattered cordage
of my will. The terrible channels where
the wind drives me against the brown lips
of the reeds are not all behind me. Yet
I trust the sanity of my vessel; and
if it sinks, it may well be in answer
to the reasoning of the eternal voices,
the waves which have kept me from reaching you. - Author: Frank O'Hara
Rudder quotes by Frank O'Hara
#37. There are times when a data set is so robust that if you set up your analysis right, you don't need to ask it questions--it just tells you everything anyway. - Author: Christian Rudder
Rudder quotes by Christian Rudder
#38. O you mad, you superbly drunk!
If you kick open your doors and play the fool in public;
If you empty your bag in a night, and snap your fingers at prudence;
If you walk in curious paths and play with useless things;
Reck not rhyme or reason;
If you break the rudder in two unfurling your sails before the storm:
Then I will follow you, comrade, and be drunken and go to the dogs.

I have wasted my days and nights in the company of steady wise neighbors.
Much knowing has turned my hair grey, and much watching has made my sight dim.
For years I have gathered and heaped all scraps and fragments of things;
Crush them and dance upon them, and scatter them all to the winds!
For I know 'tis the height of wisdom to be drunken and go to the dogs.

Let all crooked scruples vanish, let me hopelessly lose my way.
Let a gust of wild giddiness come and sweep me away from my anchors.
The world is peopled with worthies, and workers useful and clever;
There are men who are easily the first, and men who come decently next:
Let them be happy and prosperous, and let me be foolishly futile.
For I know 'tis the end of all works to be drunken and go to the dogs.

I swear to surrender this moment all claim to the ranks of the sensible.
I let go my pride of learning and judgment of right and of wrong.
I'll shatter the vessel of memory, scattering the last drop of tears; < - Author: Rabindranath Tagore
Rudder quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#39. I gave up trying to find out. Any knowledge I might gain was useless. I had no means of controlling where I was going - no rudder, no sails, no motor, some oars, but insufficient brawn. - Author: Yann Martel
Rudder quotes by Yann Martel
#40. Mastery is the rudder, Mystery is the sail and Magic the wind to move you in your chosen direction. - Author: Jack White
Rudder quotes by Jack White
#41. MAY 31 The Power of Your Words Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit. PROVERBS 18:21 NASB OUR WORDS have tremendous power and are similar to seeds. By speaking them aloud, they are planted in our subconscious minds, take root, grow, and produce fruit of the same kind. Whether we speak positive or negative words, we will reap exactly what we sow. That's why we need to be extremely careful what we think and say. The Bible compares the tongue to the small rudder of a huge ship, which controls the ship's direction (see James 3:4). Similarly, your tongue will control the direction of your life. You create an environment for either good or evil with your words, and if you're always murmuring, complaining, and talking about how bad life is treating you, you're going to live in a pretty miserable world. Use your words to change your negative situations and fill them with life. - Author: Joel Osteen
Rudder quotes by Joel Osteen
#42. De Quincey compared the two arts of rhetoric, logos and pathos, to rudder and sail. The first guides discourse and the second powers it (Thonssen and Baird, 1948, p. 358). Even - Author: Haddon Robinson
Rudder quotes by Haddon Robinson
#43. Egypt, thou knew'st too well
My heart was to thy rudder tied by the strings,
And thou shouldst tow me after: o'er my spirit
Thy full supremacy thou knew'st, and that
Thy beck might from the bidding of the gods
Command me. - Author: William Shakespeare
Rudder quotes by William Shakespeare
#44. Law is the rudder of the ship of state. - Author: Austin O'Malley
Rudder quotes by Austin O'Malley
#45. A nation aimlessly drifting away from God is a nation for which prayer is a rudder and praise is a sail. And it is the man or woman on their knees that builds the former and gives wind to the latter. - Author: Craig D. Lounsbrough
Rudder quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#46. Lord,I love you truly with all my heart. Every moment with you is precious to me but I would give up even that if it meant peace between our peoples. Nothing else can be allowed to matter so much as that."
Dragon did not reply. He was staring at her very oddly. Of the others, she had no awareness at all. Only he existed for her just then.She felt as though there was no ground beneath her but this time instead of falling as she had off the cliff, she soared frantically, desperately,not knowing if at any moment gravity might reclaim her but soaring all the same.
"What did you say?" he demanded.
"Nothing else can be allowed to matter so much as the peace between our peoples! I understand full well how angry you are. The insult done you was profound,but I beg you,think of what you do.Do you go against my father,he wins!"
Slowly,Dragon shook his head as though trying to clear it. His gaze locked on Rycca's like a man holding fast to the rudder in a mighty storm. A dull flush crept over his high-boned cheeks. "Insult? You think I want to kill your father because he insulted me? For pity's sake, woman, I damn near lost you! Don't you have any idea what that means to me?"
Her eyes widened, never leaving him as he stalked across the stone floor of the Saxon's king's great hall and took firm hold of her by her shoulders. He dragged her up against him even as he near yelled, "Dammit to hell, woman, I love you! What care I for insults? Nothing matters to me save - Author: Josie Litton
Rudder quotes by Josie Litton
#47. Most people are willing to take the Sermon on the Mount as a flag to sail under, but few will use it as a rudder by which to steer. - Author: Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
Rudder quotes by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
#48. Launching a newspaper without a coherent idea of how you're going to promote it, or get it to people who might want to read it, is like launching a boat without a rudder or an engine ... or a hull, now that I think about it. - Author: Charlie Pierce
Rudder quotes by Charlie Pierce
#49. when you read findings like the one above, and see that Jamal doesn't get the job, it's easy to shake your head at the few racist hiring managers who've tilted the odds against him. But the data we see in this chapter shows racism isn't a problem of outliers. It is pervasive. - Author: Christian Rudder
Rudder quotes by Christian Rudder
#50. Tools may be animate as well as inanimate; for instance, a ship's captain uses a lifeless rudder, but a living man for watch; for a servant is, from the point of view of his craft, categorized as one of its tools. So any piece of property can be regarded as a tool enabling a man to live, and his property is an assemblage of such tools; a slave is a sort of living piece of property; and like any other servant is a tool in charge of other tools. - Author: Aristotle.
Rudder quotes by Aristotle.
#51. He went out the front door. The sun was blinding after being in the dim house. He walked back to Perry's car, feeling like a boat without a rudder, trapped in a current. He had no place to go and no idea what to do. - Author: Robert Crais
Rudder quotes by Robert Crais
#52. A life without goal is a ship without rudder! - Author: Mehmet Murat Ildan
Rudder quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#53. The highbrow/lowbrow schizophrenia of Twitter never stops amazing me. It's the Chris Farley of technologies. - Author: Christian Rudder
Rudder quotes by Christian Rudder
#54. Sully suffers from a stutter,
simple syllables will clutter,
stalling speeches up on beaches
like a sunken sailboat rudder.
Sully strains to say his phrases,
sickened by the sounds he raises,
strings of thoughts come out in knots,
he solves his sentences like mazes.
At night, he writes his thoughts instead
and sighs as they steadily rush from his head. - Author: Bo Burnham
Rudder quotes by Bo Burnham
#55. Once, when I was younger, I thought I could be someone else. I'd move to Casablanca, open a bar, and I'd meet Ingrid Bergman. Or more realistically - whether actually more realistic or not - I'd tune in on a better life, something more suited to my true self. Toward that end, I had to undergo training. I read The Greening of America, and I saw Easy Rider three times. But like a boat with a twisted rudder, I kept coming back to the same place. I wasn't anywhere. I was myself, waiting on the shore for me to return. - Author: Haruki Murakami
Rudder quotes by Haruki Murakami
#56. I am the father that killed his son, the fine green branch; there is no hand or shelter to help me.
I am a raven that has no home; I am a boat going from wave to wave; I am a ship that has lost its rudder; I am the apple left on the tree; it is little I thought of falling from it; grief and sorrow will be with me from this time. - Author: Richard Barber
Rudder quotes by Richard Barber
#57. if "over the hill" means the beginning of a person's decline, a straight woman is over the hill as soon as she's old enough to drink. - Author: Christian Rudder
Rudder quotes by Christian Rudder
#58. Your reason and your passion are the rudder and the sails of your seafaring soul.
If either your sails or your rudder be broken, you can but toss and drift, or else be held at a standstill in mid-seas.
For reason, ruling alone, is a force confining; and passion, unattended, is a flame that burns to its own destruction.
Therefore let your soul exalt your reason to the height of passion, that it may sing;
And let it direct your passion with reason, that your passion may live through its own daily resurrection, and like the phoenix rise above its own ashes. - Author: Kahlil Gibran
Rudder quotes by Kahlil Gibran
#59. The hocus-pocus phantasm of a God like another Cerberus, with one body and three heads, had its birth and growth in the blood of thousands and thousands of martyrs ... In fact, the Athanasian paradox that one is three, and three but one, is so incomprehensible to the human mind, that no candid man can say he has any idea of it, and how can he believe what presents no idea? He who thinks he does, only deceives himself. He proves, also, that man, once surrendering his reason, has no remaining guard against absurdities the most monstrous, and like a ship without a rudder, is the sport of every wind. With such persons, gullibility which they call faith, takes the helm from the hand of reason, and the mind becomes a wreck.
[Letter to James Smith discussing Jefferson's hate of the doctrine of the Christian trinity, December 8 1822] - Author: Thomas Jefferson
Rudder quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#60. Say I Am You
I am dust particles in sunlight.
I am the round sun.
To the bits of dust I say, Stay.
To the sun, Keep moving.
I am morning mist, and the breathing of evening.
I am wind in the top of a grove, and surf on the cliff.
Mast, rudder, helmsman, and keel,
I am also the coral reef they founder on.
I am a tree with a trained parrot in its branches.
Silence, thought, and voice.
The musical air coming through a flute,
a spark of a stone, a flickering in metal.
Both candle and the moth crazy around it.
Rose, and the nightingale lost in the fragrance.
I am all orders of being, the circling galaxy,
the evolutionary intelligence, the lift,
and the falling away. What is, and what isn't.
You who know Jelaluddin, You the one in all,
say who I am. Say I am You. - Author: Rumi
Rudder quotes by Rumi
#61. We don't have to experience it in order to recognise it. There's a moment, an event, a word, a gesture, a telephone call that changes everything. And when it occurs, when it erupts, when it is spoken, it breaks the rudder we thought was guiding our lives, confronting us with reality, demolishing all our innocent plans for the future. Everything we thought was solid collapsed, all life's worries seem absurd, because the only absolute is the chaos that forces us to surrender humbly to death's supremacy. - Author: Dolores Redondo
Rudder quotes by Dolores Redondo
#62. God doesn't want us to ignore the past; the past should be a rudder to guide us, not an anchor to hold us back. - Author: Warren W. Wiersbe
Rudder quotes by Warren W. Wiersbe
#63. From empathy and sexuality to science inclination and extroversion, statistical analysis of 122 different characteristics involving 13,301 individuals shows that men and women, by and large, do not fall into different groups. - Author: Christian Rudder
Rudder quotes by Christian Rudder
#64. It is hardly fresh intellectual ground that beauty matters, and that it matters more for women. For example, a foundational paper of social psychology is called "What Is Beautiful Is Good." It was the first in a now long line of research to establish that good-looking people are seen as more intelligent, more competent, and more trustworthy than the rest of us. More attractive people get better jobs. They are also acquitted more often in court, and, failing that, they get lighter sentences. - Author: Christian Rudder
Rudder quotes by Christian Rudder
#65. men and women perform a different sexual calculus. As Harper's put it perfectly: "Women are inclined to regret the sex they had, and men the sex they didn't. - Author: Christian Rudder
Rudder quotes by Christian Rudder
#66. Matt, as captain of this crazy ship, kept the rudder straight, the laundry done, and his boyfriend well fucked enough to carry on another day. - Author: Tere Michaels
Rudder quotes by Tere Michaels
#67. Establish specific objectives, and move steadily toward them. A rudder won't control a drifting boat; it must be underway. Similarly, you need to be moving forward to gain control of your life. - Author: Richard G. Scott
Rudder quotes by Richard G. Scott
#68. the data we see in this chapter shows racism isn't a problem of outliers. It is pervasive. We've seen the same patterns repeated on three different sites, with different users and different experiences: men, women, free, subscription-only, casual, serious, "urban" demographics, and more "mainstream." All told, the research set represents a large chunk of the young adults in this country, and the data uniformly shows non-blacks discount African American profiles. It's not a problem caused by a small cluster of "ugly" black users or by a small group of unreformed racists throwing off an otherwise regular pattern. - Author: Christian Rudder
Rudder quotes by Christian Rudder
#69. Twitter actually may be improving its users' writing, as it forces them to wring meaning from fewer letters - it - Author: Christian Rudder
Rudder quotes by Christian Rudder
#70. My fear of life is necessary to me, as is my illness. Without anxiety and illness, I am a ship without a rudder. My art is grounded in reflections over being different from others. My sufferings are part of my self and my art. They are indistinguishable from me, and their destruction would destroy my art. I want to keep those sufferings - Author: Edvard Munch
Rudder quotes by Edvard Munch
#71. Because the way love works in general, you don't need everybody to like you somewhat - you need one person to like you a lot. - Author: Christian Rudder
Rudder quotes by Christian Rudder
#72. Man once surrendering his reason, has no remaining guard against absurdities the most monstrous, and like a ship without rudder, is the sport of every wind. With such persons, gullibility, which they call faith, takes the helm from the hand of reason, and the mind becomes a wreck. - Author: Thomas Jefferson
Rudder quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#73. A man without religion or spiritual vision is like a captain who finds himself in the midst of an uncharted sea, without compass, rudder and steering wheel. He never knows where he is, which way he is going and where he is going to land. - Author: William J.H. Boetcker
Rudder quotes by William J.H. Boetcker
#74. He depressed the rudder, and the Red Cloud shot earthward. Then, as the airship was turned about, the young inventor was allowed to try his hand at managing it. He said, afterward, that it was like guiding a fleecy cloud. - Author: Victor Appleton
Rudder quotes by Victor Appleton
#75. I would rather rudder - Author: Victor J. Garcia
Rudder quotes by Victor J. Garcia
#76. Even at the person-to-person level, to be universally liked is to be relatively ignored. To be disliked by some is to be loved all the more by others. And, specifically, a woman's overall sex appeal is enhanced when some men find her ugly. - Author: Christian Rudder
Rudder quotes by Christian Rudder
#77. the least black band on Earth is Belle & Sebastian, - Author: Christian Rudder
Rudder quotes by Christian Rudder
#78. To use data to know yet not manipulate, to explore but not to pry, to protect but not to smother, to see yet never expose, and, above all, to repay that priceless gift we bequeath to the world when we share our lives so that other lives might be better - and to fulfill for everyone that oldest of human hopes, from Gilgamesh to Ramses to today: that our names be remembered, not only in stone but as part of memory itself. - Author: Christian Rudder
Rudder quotes by Christian Rudder
#79. When you want to learn about how people write, their unpolished, unguarded words are the best place to start, and we have reams of them. - Author: Christian Rudder
Rudder quotes by Christian Rudder
#80. Halfborn Gunderson was slumped over the rudder, blood dripping from an ugly gash on his forehead.
For a moment, I thought, Eh, Halfborn gets killed that way all the time. Then I remembered we were not in Valhalla anymore. Wherever this was, if we died here, we would not get a do-over. - Author: Rick Riordan
Rudder quotes by Rick Riordan
#81. Something hit me very hard once, thinking about what one little man could do. Think of the Queen Mary - the whole ship goes by and then comes the rudder. And there's a tiny thing at the edge of the rudder called a trimtab.
It's a miniature rudder. Just moving the little trim tab builds a low pressure that pulls the rudder around. Takes almost no effort at all. So I said that the little individual can be a trimtab. Society thinks it's going right by you, that it's left you altogether. But if you're doing dynamic things mentally, the fact is that you can just put your foot out like that and the whole big ship of state is going to go.
So I said, call me Trimtab. - Author: R. Buckminster Fuller
Rudder quotes by R. Buckminster Fuller
#82. The pilot was military, so he was using the rudder. Civilian pilots avoid using the rudder. Using the rudder makes the plane slew, like a car skids. Passengers don't like the feeling. So civilian pilots turn by juicing the engines on one side and backing off on the others. Then the plane comes around smoothly. - Author: Lee Child
Rudder quotes by Lee Child
#83. A well ordered society would be one where the State only had a negative action, comparable to that of a rudder: a light pressure at the right moment to counteract the first suggestion of any loss of equilibrium. - Author: Simone Weil
Rudder quotes by Simone Weil
#84. The ship of heaven guides itself and will not accept a wooden rudder. - Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
Rudder quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson

Rudder quotes by Christian Rudder
#86. Those who are in love with practice without knowledge are like the sailor who gets into a ship without rudder or compass and who never can be certain whether he is going. Practice must always be founded on sound theory, and to this Perspective is the guide and the gateway; and without this nothing can be done well in the matter of drawing. - Author: Leonardo Da Vinci
Rudder quotes by Leonardo Da Vinci
#87. With the stick in my right hand, the throttle in my left, and the rudder beneath my feet, I can savor that essence from which life is made. - Author: Stephen Coonts
Rudder quotes by Stephen Coonts
#88. The first hour of the morning, is the rudder of the day. - Author: Henry Ward Beecher
Rudder quotes by Henry Ward Beecher
#89. Why should we hate them? Because ours is the only true civilization! Even in science -- consider that we invented the sternpost rudder twelve hundred years before the Europeans did! Fore-and-aft sails in the third century! Treadmill paddle wheel for boats five hundred years later! Warships with rams and twenty paddle wheels by the twelfth century -- the British thought we had copied theirs, the fools! In the thirteenth century we had ships with fifty cabins for passengers, six-masts, double planking, water-tight compartments! Only in the last century did the barbarians even have transverse bulkheads! Five hundred years ago we already had ships four hundred and fifty feet long, and we grew fresh vegetables aboard in tubs! WE sailed the high seas to Sumatra and India, to Aden and Africa and even to Madagascar -- sixty years before the Portuguese bit a piece from the thigh of India! I curse Confucius and all those mad saints who persuaded us against war! Did you ever hear of Sun Wa, who lived three thousand years ago? No? Read the Art of War! 'If you are not in danger, do not fight,' he wrote. Now we are in danger! - Author: Pearl S. Buck

#92. I know what you're thinking, Gray," O'Shea's brogue lilted down through the skylight one warm morning, while Sophia was hard at work.
Mr. Grayson responded, a raw longing in his voice. "Aye. It would be so easy to take her."
Sophia nearly dropped her quill.

"And a faster ship," Gray replied. "We'd be on her stern in no time."
Ships. Sophia breathed again. They were speaking of ships.

She could hear that smile in his voice.

Rudder quotes by Christian Rudder
#96. We are all in the same boat,
boat of life. Does not seem

Perhaps my words may find a
path, path through currents and water
as we continue our journey on
river of life.

Rudder quotes by David Jeremiah
#107. As we grow in grace, we become a blessing to the world around us, and the world, in terms of its relations to us, is blessed or cursed. This means that the politics of the world capitols, however important, is not as determinative of the future as the faithfulness of the covenant people to their God and to His covenant law-word. When history wallows needlessly in the seas of politics, it is simply because the rudder of the ship, the Christian, is giving no direction and is neither a curse nor a blessing, only salt which has lost its savor and is good for nothing except to be thrown out on the road of history, "to be trodden under foot of men" (Matt. 5:13). - Author: Rousas John Rushdoony
Rudder quotes by Rousas John Rushdoony

Rudder quotes by Cees Nooteboom
#111. To his sister-in-law: What a contrast between us! You live a warm and glowing life, surrounded by loved ones whom you care for and who care for you; you are anchored in contentment. I drift about without rudder or compass, a wreck on the sea of life; I have no memories to cheer me, no pleasant illusions of the future to comfort me, or about me to satisfy my vanity. I have no family to furnish the only kind of survival that concerns us, no friends for the wholesome development of my affections, or enemies for my malice. - Author: Alfred Nobel
Rudder quotes by Alfred Nobel
