#1. Man is made of thought, of will and of love: he can think truth or error, he can will good or evil, he can love beauty or ugliness. Now thought of the true - or knowledge of the real - demands on the one hand willing of the good and on the other love of the beautiful, hence virtue, for virtue is none other than beauty of soul; that is why the Greeks, who were aesthetes as well as thinkers, included virtue within philosophy. Without beauty of soul, all willing is sterile, it is petty and closes itself to grace; and in an analogous manner: without effort of will, all spiritual thought ultimately remains superficial and ineffectual and leads to pretension. Virtue coincides with a sensibility proportioned - or conformed - to the Truth, and that is why the soul of the sage soars above things and thereby above itself, if one may put it thus; whence the disinterestedness, nobleness and generosity of great souls. Quite clearly, the consciousness of metaphysical principles cannot go hand in hand with moral pettiness, such as ambition and hypocrisy : "Be ye perfect even as your Father in Heaven is perfect. - Author: Frithjof Schuon
True Aussie quotes by Frithjof Schuon
#2. I have no clue if it's true and I don't much want to look, but I bet a war happens inside the cocoon. - Author: Darnell Lamont Walker
True Aussie quotes by Darnell Lamont Walker
#3. The conduct of a man, who studies philosophy in this careless manner, is more truly sceptical than that of any one, who feeling inhimself an inclination to it, is yet so over-whelm'd with doubts and scruples, as totally to reject it. A true sceptic will be diffident of his philosophical doubts, as well as of his philosophical conviction; and will never refuse any innocent satisfaction, which offers itself, upon account of either of them. - Author: David Hume
True Aussie quotes by David Hume
#4. How long have you had that cough?" "Ugh! ugh! ugh! - ugh! ugh! ugh! - ugh! ugh! ugh! - ugh! ugh! ugh! - ugh! ugh! ugh!" My poor friend found it impossible to reply for many minutes. "It is nothing," he said, at last. "Come," I said, with decision, "we will go back; your health is precious. You are rich, respected, admired, beloved; you are happy, as once I was. You are a man to be missed. For me it is no matter. We will go back; you will be ill, and I cannot be responsible. Besides, there is Luchesi - " "Enough," he said; "the cough is a mere nothing; it will not kill me. I shall not die of a cough." "True - true, - Author: Edgar Allan Poe
True Aussie quotes by Edgar Allan Poe
#5. I shall approach. Before taking off his hat, I shall take off my own. I shall say, "The Marquis de Saint Eustache, I believe." He will say, "The celebrated Mr. Syme, I presume." He will say in the most exquisite French, "How are you?" I shall reply in the most exquisite Cockney, "Oh, just the Syme."'
'Oh shut it ... what are you really going to do?'
'But it was a lovely catechism! ... Do let me read it to you. It has only forty-three questions and answers, some of the Marquis's answers are wonderfully witty. I like to be just to my enemy.'
'But what's the good of it all?' asked Dr. Bull in exasperation.
'It leads up to the challenge ... when the Marquis as given the forty-ninth reply, which runs
'Has it ... occurred to you ... that the Marquis may not say all the forty-three things you have put down for him?'
'How true that is! ... Sir, you have a intellect beyond the common. - Author: G.K. Chesterton
True Aussie quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#6. That that present, in the consecrated space at the very summit of the hierarchy of this world there exists a god
like, demonlike ruler whose power is so vast that it envelops the entire planet and transends all human understanding and religion - this is something I believe to be true beyond the shadow of a doubt. - Author: Shunji Ohkura
True Aussie quotes by Shunji Ohkura
#7. Alot won't understand you and that's ok. - Author: Nikki Rowe
True Aussie quotes by Nikki Rowe
#8. He shifted. She kept her back to him as she felt him move closer. The warmth of him slowly fitted along her spine. It was like sinking into a bath. His words brushed the back of her neck: "Just to keep you warm," he said, a question in his tone.
"You say that we're friends."
"Have we done this before?"
Another pause. "No."
Her shaking quieted to a shiver. She found that she'd moved even closer to him, had sealed herself against him. His heart beat fast against her back. He held her, and the weight of his arm made her feel more solid, more real, less ready to shatter into mirrorlike pieces. She calmed, relaxing into his warmth.
She still didn't sleep. Neither did he. She could feel his wakefulness. She thought, fleetingly, that it was like him not to fall asleep before she did. She didn't know how she could believe this to be true. It was hard to reconcile with the one memory she had of him: his face in the market, across a distance. An enemy's mouth, enemy's eyes.
But he was here, he had saved her, and he'd asked nothing of her except to remember, and had stopped asking even for that. She knew his scent. Knew that she liked it. His hand reached to touch the pulse in her neck. He kept his fingers there, slightly too firm to be gentle, as if he doubted she was alive.
Had they really never shared a bed? No. She would remember that. Wouldn't she? - Author: Marie Rutkoski
True Aussie quotes by Marie Rutkoski
#9. Next to genius is the power of feeling where true genius lies. - Author: Sarah Josepha Hale

#10. Emotions are the sums created by details, whether those details are true or not. - Author: Terry Goodkind
True Aussie quotes by Terry Goodkind
#11. It's really easy to fall into the trap of believing that what we do is more important than what we are. Of course, it's the opposite that's true: What we are ultimately determines what we do! - Author: Fred Rogers
True Aussie quotes by Fred Rogers
#12. marriage is not a covenant between a man and a woman... Marriage is a covenant between a man and woman on the one side and their community on the other. To marry according to the law of the community is to become a full citizen; to refuse marriage is to be a stranger, a child, an outlaw, a slave, or a traitor. The one constant in every society of human kind is that only those who obey the laws, tabus, and customs of marriage are true adults. - Author: Orson Scott Card
True Aussie quotes by Orson Scott Card
#13. At last, John Baptist, now able to choose his own spot within the compass of those walls for the exercise of his faculty of going to sleep when he would, lay down upon the bench, with his face turned over on his crossed arms, and slumbered. In his submission, in his lightness, in his good humour, in his short-lived passion, in his easy contentment with hard bread and hard stones, in his ready sleep, in his fits and starts, altogether a true son of the land that gave him birth. The - Author: Charles Dickens
True Aussie quotes by Charles Dickens
#14. The day before yesterday, in the woods of Touques, in a charming spot beside a spring, I found old cigar butts and scraps of pâté. People had been picnicking. I described such a scene in Novembre eleven years ago; it was entirely imagined, and the other day it came true. Everything one invents is true, you may be sure. Poetry is as precise as geometry. Induction is as accurate as deduction; and besides, after reaching a certain point one no longer makes any mistake about the things of the soul. - Author: Gustave Flaubert
True Aussie quotes by Gustave Flaubert
#15. You can split atoms, but you can't split true love. - Author: Steve Fowler
True Aussie quotes by Steve Fowler
#16. We live in a moment in which old conflicts, much altered during their subterraneous years, have boiled up again. The struggle to own the past so that it can be made to serve contemporary interests has led to gross distortions. But it is true also that the experience of any generation is inevitably a warped lens through which to view the thought and the actions of any previous generation, especially when there is a lack of rigorous historical perspective to correct for these distortions. This second consideration may go some way toward explaining the fact that there are not two sides to what would otherwise be a great national controversy. - Author: Marilynne Robinson
True Aussie quotes by Marilynne Robinson
#17. Inside the music like this, she understood many things. She understood that Simon was a disappointed man if he needed, at this age, to tell her he had pitied her for years. She understood that as he drove his car back down the coast toward Boston, toward his wife with whom he had raised three children, that something in him would be satisfied to have witnessed her the way he had tonight, and she understood that this form of comfort was true for many people, as it made Malcolm feel better to call Walter Dalton a pathetic fairy, but it was thin milk, this form of nourishment; it could not change that you had wanted to be a concert pianist and ended up a real estate lawyer, that you had married a woman and stayed married to her for thirty years, when she did not ever find you lovely in bed. - Author: Elizabeth Strout
True Aussie quotes by Elizabeth Strout
#18. She told me that my rape was not my fault, that I should feel no shame, that – simple as it may sound – I hadn't caused it. No one causes rape but rapists. No one causes rape but rapists. No one causes rape but rapists. It was true. And it had not been obvious to me. And hearing it from someone else, a professional, someone who should know, helped me believe that soon I would believe it. - Author: Aspen Matis
True Aussie quotes by Aspen Matis
#19. It isn't every day a wish comes true and you, Ember, are the answer to my wish. - Author: L.A. Fiore
True Aussie quotes by L.A. Fiore
#20. Everything that's said against me offends me, whether it's true or not. - Author: Nick Cave
True Aussie quotes by Nick Cave
#21. Dragons old and young, true and false, bright and dark. And you. A small man with a big shadow, snarling in the midst of all. - Author: George R R Martin
True Aussie quotes by George R R Martin
#22. Giving consistent effort in the little things in day-to-day life leads to true greatness. Specifically, it is the thousands of little deeds and tasks of service and sacrifice that constitute the giving or losing of one's life for others and for the Lord. They include gaining a knowledge of our Father in Heaven and of the gospel. They also include bringing others into the faith and fellowship of his kingdom. These things do not usually receive the attention or the adulation of the world ... - Author: Howard W. Hunter
True Aussie quotes by Howard W. Hunter
#23. I hated and admired this hunter. I once gave him my heart and soul. Since then, I had given him more and more of myself, but I never forgot his true nature and what he had done to me. - Author: Jessica Marie Gilliland
True Aussie quotes by Jessica Marie Gilliland
#24. A true Englishman doesn't joke when he is talking about so serious a thing as a wager. - Author: Jules Verne
True Aussie quotes by Jules Verne
#25. I've been shut down, run down, talked about, dogged out, but that never stopped me from the being the true me that's here and will be here. - Author: Patti LaBelle
True Aussie quotes by Patti LaBelle
#26. And now please note that I have raised my right hand. And that means that I'm not kidding, that whatever I say next I believe to be true. So here it goes: The most spiritually splendid American phenomenon of my lifetime wasn't our contribution to the defeat of the Nazis, in which I played such a large part, or Ronald Reagan's overthrow of Godless Communism, in Russia at least.
The most spiritually splendid American phenomenon of my lifetime is how African-American citizens have maintained their dignity and self-respect, despite their having been treated by white Americans, both in and out of government, and simply because of their skin color, as though they were contemptible and loathsome, and even diseased."
"If this isn't nice, I don't know what is. - Author: Kurt Vonnegut
True Aussie quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#27. He couldn't remember the last time human hands had willingly touched him.
Not true. Miranda had. She had touched him as if he were just a man.
He had lived on those moments ever since, pulled them to the fore when loneliness threatened to suck him down and drown him - Author: Kristen Callihan
True Aussie quotes by Kristen Callihan
#28. In nature the only source of energy is from the sun. So in ecological systems everything comes from the sun through the process of photosynthesis whereas now in human built environment our source of energy is from fossil fuels, renewable, wood energy or hydro-energy but it is not from the sun. So until we are able to operate and run a human built environment by imitating photosynthesis it will be a long while before we can have a true eco-system. - Author: Ken Yeang
True Aussie quotes by Ken Yeang
#29. In this fog, it's true, we are made-up of less than bone. - Author: Stacie Cassarino
True Aussie quotes by Stacie Cassarino
#30. True liberty is not liberty to do evil as well as good. - Author: John Winthrop
True Aussie quotes by John Winthrop
#31. Be careful who you take advice from. People love when you fall for deception. Only a true friend will inspire you and stand by you in pursuing a prosperous life. - Author: Troy Gathers
True Aussie quotes by Troy Gathers
#32. I thought it was a fleeting emotion, something that eventually fades like lust. Now I know that real love is when the soul meets its true mate. True and undeniable. It's as instinctual as the need to eat, sleep or breathe. Like a puzzle piece that only fits in one place, you are my home, the only place I belong. You are it for me. My true. - Author: Gwendolyn Grace
True Aussie quotes by Gwendolyn Grace
#33. The essence of true religious teaching is that one should serve and befriend all. - Author: Mahatma Gandhi
True Aussie quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#34. We all need to give ourselves permission to feel our true feelings, even if those are decidedly darker or heavier than happiness. Instead of keeping that bright, positive attitude and claiming "I'm fine!" no matter what's really going on, we need to be honest, with ourselves and others, about how we're really feeling. - Author: Lizzie Velasquez
