#1. He wanted to achieve something of surpassing beauty that would last. A creation that would mean that he
the mosaic worker Caius Crispus of Varena
had been born, and lived a life, and had come to understand a portion of the nature of the world, of what ran through and beneath the deeds of women and men in their souls and in the beauty and the pain of their short living beneath the sun. - Author: Guy Gavriel Kay
The Nature Of Family quotes by Guy Gavriel Kay

The Nature Of Family quotes by Anthony De Mello
#3. Work on your strong qualities
and become resplendent like the ruby.
Practice self-denial and accept difficulty.
Always see infinite life in letting the self die.
Your stoniness will decrease; your ruby nature will grow.
The signs of self-existence will leave your body,
and ecstasy will take you over. - Author: Rumi
The Nature Of Family quotes by Rumi
#4. The mindset of antiquity lacked economic science and sociological theory. The ancients did rather well with political narrative, although, except for Thucydides, no first-rate political annalist and analyst emerged from the literary populace. But the ancients never showed a capacity, or even an inclination, to examine closely the urban world they themselves inhabited.
"Neither, however, was the medieval world in the 500s through the 1500s, which succeeded antiquity, much better at economics and sociology. It was only in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries that this kind of thinking emerged with Adam Smith and Alexis de Tocqueville in response to industrial and political revolutions.
"What interested the urban dwellers of antiquity were the gods. During the Hellenistic and Roman eras the theoretical capacity of the literate urban population was given over to thinking about the nature of divinity. The chief theological formats were polytheism (many gods); monotheism (one god); dualism (two dogs, one good, the other evil); and dying and reborn savior gods that could also be fitted into the other three categories of divinity. - Author: Norman F. Cantor
The Nature Of Family quotes by Norman F. Cantor
#5. I fear I have not one good word to say this fair morning, though the sun shines so encouragingly on the distant hills and gentle river and the trees are in their festive hues. I am not festive, though contented. When obliged to give myself to the prose of life, as I am on this occasion of being established in a new home I like to do the thing, wholly and quite, - to weave my web for the day solely from the grey yarn. - Author: Margaret Fuller
The Nature Of Family quotes by Margaret Fuller
#6. I've known rivers:
I've known rivers ancient as the world and older than the flow of human blood in human veins.
My soul has grown deep like the rivers. - Author: Langston Hughes
The Nature Of Family quotes by Langston Hughes
#7. Lies are just another kind of storytelling, but with the very distinct and enlivening motive of desperation. Since writers are by nature desperate creatures, they usually do a pretty good (or pretty awful, but always interesting) job of lying. - Author: John Hodgman
The Nature Of Family quotes by John Hodgman
#8. Natural play strengthens children's self-confidence and arouses their senses-their awareness of the world and all that moves in it, seen and unseen. - Author: Richard Louv
The Nature Of Family quotes by Richard Louv
#9. Aware adults with autism and their parents are often angry about autism. They may ask why nature or God created such horrible conditions as autism, manic depression, and schizophrenia. However, if the genes that caused these conditions were eliminated there might be a terrible price to pay. It is possible that persons with bits of these traits are more creative, or possibly even geniuses. If science eliminated these genes, maybe the whole world would be taken over by accountants. - Author: Steve Silberman
The Nature Of Family quotes by Steve Silberman
#10. Just as the savage must wrestle with nature to satisfy his wants, to maintain and reproduce life, so must civilised man, and he must do so in all social formations and under all possible modes of production. - Author: Karl Marx
The Nature Of Family quotes by Karl Marx
#11. I'm such a product of my media diet ... it's interesting that you say what I do is observational. It's observational as far as it goes - to the extent that I observe media closely. Kriota might have a better sense of this. I don't always have the best sense of how human nature works, but I certainly know how to dismantle representations of characters. - Author: Robert Sikoryak
The Nature Of Family quotes by Robert Sikoryak
#12. In the Celtic mind, humanity and the animal kingdom were intimately connected. This interconnection with nature was reflected in their gods, who took the forms of the animals they revered, blurring the distinction between the animal and human realms. - Author: Stephanie Woodfield
The Nature Of Family quotes by Stephanie Woodfield
#13. Science starts with preconception, with the common culture, and with common sense. It moves on to observation, is marked by the discovery of paradox, and is then concerned with the correction of preconception. It moves then to use these corrections for the designing of further observation and for more refined experiment. And as it moves along this course the nature of the evidence and experience that nourish it becomes more and more unfamiliar; it is not just the language that is strange [to common culture]. - Author: J. Robert Oppenheimer
The Nature Of Family quotes by J. Robert Oppenheimer
#14. There are people who are excitable by nature and allow themselves to become angry for the most trivial of reasons. Judo can help such people learn to control themselves. Through training, they quickly realize that anger is a waste of energy, that it has only negative effects on the self and others. - Author: Kano Jigoro
The Nature Of Family quotes by Kano Jigoro
#15. Nature engenders the science of painting. - Author: Robert Delaunay
The Nature Of Family quotes by Robert Delaunay
#16. I abhor the supreme folly of those who blame the disciples of nature in defiance of those masters who were themselves her pupils - Author: Leonardo Da Vinci
The Nature Of Family quotes by Leonardo Da Vinci
#17. After meditating for some years, I began to see the patterns of my own behavior. As you quiet your mind, you begin to see the nature of your own resistance more clearly, struggles, inner dialogues, the way in which you procrastinate and develop passive resistance against life. As you cultivate the witness, things change. You don't have to change them. Things just change. - Author: Ram Dass
The Nature Of Family quotes by Ram Dass
#18. Love is the key to the mystery. Love by its very nature is not selfish, but generous. It seeks not its own, but the good of others. The measure of love is not the pleasure it gives-that is the way the world judges it-but the joy and peace it can purchase for others. - Author: Fulton J. Sheen
The Nature Of Family quotes by Fulton J. Sheen
#19. In simple hearts the feeling for the beauty and grandeur of nature is a hundred-fold stronger and more vivid than in us, ecstatic composers of narratives in words and on paper. - Author: Mikhail Lermontov
The Nature Of Family quotes by Mikhail Lermontov
#20. It's possible to satisfy the needs of the inner life by an intimate communion with nature, or by knowledge of the past. - Author: Adolf Hitler
The Nature Of Family quotes by Adolf Hitler
#21. But nature does not say that cats are more valuable than mice; nature makes no remark on the subject. She does not even say that the cat is enviable or the mouse pitiable. We think the cat superior because we have (or most of us have) a particular philosophy to the effect that life is better than death. But if the mouse were a German pessimist mouse, he might not think that the cat had beaten him at all. He might think he had beaten the cat by getting to the grave first. - Author: Gilbert K. Chesterton
The Nature Of Family quotes by Gilbert K. Chesterton
#22. Gentlemen, as we study the universe we see everywhere the most tremendous manifestations of force. In our own experience we know of but one source of force, namely will. How then can we help regarding the forces we see in nature as due to the will of some omnipresent, omnipotent being? Gentlemen, there must be a GOD. - Author: Benjamin Peirce
The Nature Of Family quotes by Benjamin Peirce
#23. It is the controller of Nature alone that can bring light out of darkness, and order out of confusion. Who is he that causeth the mole, from his secret path of darkness, to throw up the gem, the gold, and the precious ore? The same that from the mouths of babes and sucklings can extract the perfection of praise, and who can make the most abject of his creatures instrumental in bringing the most hidden truths to light. - Author: James Hogg
The Nature Of Family quotes by James Hogg
#24. The eye of youth is very observant. Youth has its moments of keen intuition, even normal youth
but the intuition of those who stand mi-way between the sexes is so ruthless, so poignant, so deadly, as to be in the nature of an added scourge ... - Author: Radclyffe Hall
The Nature Of Family quotes by Radclyffe Hall
#25. The medium of podcasting and the personal nature of it, the relationship you build with your listeners and the relationship they have with you - they could be just sitting there, chuckling and listening ... there's nothing like that. - Author: Marc Maron
The Nature Of Family quotes by Marc Maron
#26. I spent a considerable amount of time when I was, o, adolescent, wondering why I was different, whether there were other people like me. Why, when everyone else was fascinated by their developing sexual nature, I couldn't give a damn. I've never been attracted to men. Or women. Or anything else. It's difficult to explain, but while I have an apparently normal female body, I don't have any sexual urge or appetite. - Author: Keri Hulme
The Nature Of Family quotes by Keri Hulme
#27. What a recovery of the wisdom of the Mother brings to all of us is the knowledge of inseparable connection with the entire creation and the wise, active love that is born from that knowledge. - Author: Andrew Harvey
The Nature Of Family quotes by Andrew Harvey
#28. Perverted quality; Moral perversion; The innate corruption of human nature due to original sin; Both the elect and the non-elect came into the world in a state of total d. and alienation from God, and can, of themselves do nothing but sin. J.H. Blunt. - Author: Arundhati Roy
The Nature Of Family quotes by Arundhati Roy
#29. This is how I recognize an authentic poet: by frequenting him, living a long time in the intimacy of his work, something changes in myself, not so much my inclinations or my tastes as my very blood, as if a subtle disease had been injected to alter its course, its density and nature. To live around a true poet is to feel your blood run thin, to dream a paradise of anemia, and to hear, in your veins, the rustle of tears. - Author: Emil Cioran
The Nature Of Family quotes by Emil Cioran
#30. We should meet abuse by forbearance. Human nature is so constituted that if we take absolutely no notice of anger or abuse, the person indulging in it will soon weary of it and stop. - Author: Mahatma Gandhi
The Nature Of Family quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#31. Most of us persist in regarding leadership as synonymous with - indeed solely derived from - high position. Perhaps the notion of grass-roots leadership strikes us as too much of an oxymoron; confronted with apparent paradox, our imaginations fail ... I believe that in the future, our ideas about the nature of leadership will undergo a radical transformation. As the instrumental use of knowledge continues to redefine the nature and purpose of organizations, we will begin to look at those on the front lines for leadership. - Author: Sally Helgesen
The Nature Of Family quotes by Sally Helgesen
#32. The education of our hero, Edward Waverley, was of a nature somewhat desultory. In infancy his health suffered, or was supposed to suffer (which is quite the same thing), by the air of London. - Author: Walter Scott
The Nature Of Family quotes by Walter Scott
#33. It was very damp and misty–which some people from outside the Pacific Northwest consider to be rain, but I do not. This is typical weather for the Pacific Northwest and Olympia. It is often wet in Olympia, but we have an average of only 49.95 inches a year of actual precipitation. That's less than in Denver. In Olympia, the air is damp, and water collects and drips from everywhere. We do not get big downpours, but we get damp and spongy.

I don't care. It helps the trees grow, and I climb the trees. - Author: Ned Hayes
The Nature Of Family quotes by Ned Hayes
#34. Nature without learning is blind, learning apart from nature is fractional, and practice in the absence of both is aimless. - Author: Plutarch
The Nature Of Family quotes by Plutarch
#35. It is the task of the "science of man" to arrive eventually at a correct description of what deserves to be called human nature. What has often been called "human nature" is but one of its many manifestations - and often a pathological one - and the function of such mistaken definition usually has been to defend a particular type of society as being the necessary one. - Author: Erich Fromm
The Nature Of Family quotes by Erich Fromm
#36. Man shouldn't be able to see his own face. That's what's most terrible. Nature gave him the possibility of not seeing it, as well as the incapacity of not seeing his own eyes. - Author: Fernando Pessoa
The Nature Of Family quotes by Fernando Pessoa
#37. I have often wondered at the extreme fecundity of the press, and how it comes to pass that so many heads on which nature seemed to have inflicted the curse of barrenness should teem with voluminous productions. - Author: Washington Irving
The Nature Of Family quotes by Washington Irving
#38. It wasn't what lay at the end of her road that frightened Ammu as much as the nature of the road itself. No milestones marked its progress. No trees grew along it. No dappled shadows shaded it. No mists rolled over it. No birds circled it. No twists, no turns or hairpin bends obscured even momentarily, her clear view of the end. This filled Ammu with an awful dread, because she was not the kind of woman who wanted her future told. She dreaded it too much. So if she were granted one small wish perhaps it would have been Not to Know, Not to know what each day hed in store for her. Not to know where she might be, next month, next year. Ten years on. Not to know which way her road might turn and what lay beyond the bend. - Author: Arundhati Roy
The Nature Of Family quotes by Arundhati Roy
#39. I remember I would not stand still; I would not stop being perplexed by everything that spontaneously attracted me or caught my attention. I would never cease to look around me and observe myself in relation to nature: either crystal clear skies and sun-melting afternoons, or foggy winter days and weirdly tinted nights. I would never cease to dream and stand by the window, ready to let the diversity of life pass freely through my skin; courageous enough to believe I stood a chance in devouring each shade of sensation. Or perhaps, immensely foolish to plainly - believe at all. - Author: Virginia Woolf
The Nature Of Family quotes by Virginia Woolf
#40. Ambition without principle never was long under the guidance of good sense. - Author: Alexander Hamilton
The Nature Of Family quotes by Alexander Hamilton
#41. Once all come to know that by the concentration of the mind on one point, on one principle, on one desire, a power is radiated to that point with creative nature and demonstrative abilities, man will think more carefully, more constructively and more efficiently - Author: Harvey Spencer Lewis
The Nature Of Family quotes by Harvey Spencer Lewis
#42. Thus, he says, those who would "eliminate from the universe" what they think of as "inferior beings" would simply "eliminate Providence itself," whose nature it is to "produce all things and to diversify all in the manner of their existence. - Author: Ken Wilber
The Nature Of Family quotes by Ken Wilber
