earth

You were placed on this earth to create, not to compete.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The earth is the very quintessence of the human condition.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is thus that the few rare lucid well-disposed people who have had to struggle on the earth find themselves at certain hours of the day or night in the depth of certain authentic and waking nightmare states, surrounded by the formidable suction, the formidable oppression of a kind of civic magic which will soon be seen appearing openly in social behavior.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We have in the service the scum of the earth as common soldiers.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If the relationship of father to son could really be reduced to biology, the whole earth would blaze with the glory of fathers and sons.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Equality may perhaps be a right, but no power on earth can ever turn it into a fact.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The earth seemed to move with me. I found a new source of power and beauty, a source I never knew existed.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Laugh and the world laughs with you, be prompt and you dine alone. For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth, but has trouble enough of its own.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If we consider the superiority of the human species, the size of its brain, its powers of thinking, language and organization, we can say this: were there the slightest possibility that another rival or superior species might appear, on earth or elsewhere, man would use every means at his disposal to destroy it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Just under the surface I shall be, all together at first, then separate and drift, through all the earth and perhaps in the end through a cliff into the sea, something of me. A ton of worms in an acre, that is a wonderful thought, a ton of worms, I believe it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To me the greatest thing that has happened on this earth of ours is the rise of the human race to the vision of God. That story of the human rise to what I call the vision of God is the story which is told in the Bible.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than you love yourself.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Great people are meteors designed to burn so that the earth may be lighted.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We therefore commit his body to the ground; earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust; in sure and certain hope of the Resurrection.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We are made for larger ends than Earth can encompass. Oh, let us be true to our exalted destiny.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
My darling girl, Unfortunately this earth is not a fairy-land, but a struggle for life, perfectly natural and therefore extremely harsh. All the same, or precisely for this reason, it is happiness and comfort for us men to have a precious sweetheart -- and I have the most precious, the dearest and best of all!More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Firm, faithful, and devoted, full of energy and zeal, and truth, he labors for his race; he clears their painful way to improvement; he hews down like a giant the prejudices of creed and caste that encumber it. He may be stern; he may be exacting; he may be ambitious yet; but his is the sternness of the warrior Greatheart, who guards his pilgrim convoy from the onslaught of Apollyon. His is the exaction of the apostle, who speaks but for Christ, when he says, Whosoever will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. His is the ambition of the high master-spirit, which aims to fill a place in the first rank of those who are redeemed from the earth -- who stand without fault before the throne of God, who share the last mighty victories of the Lamb, who are called, and chosen, and faithful.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
How many desolate creatures on the earth have learnt the simple dues of fellowship and social comfort, in a hospital.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I feel no need for any other faith than my faith in the kindness of human beings. I am so absorbed in the wonder of earth and the life upon it that I cannot think of heaven and angels.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Like Confucius of old, I am so absorbed in the wonder of the earth and the life upon it, that I cannot think of heaven and the angels.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I think there are innumerable gods. What we on earth call God is a little tribal God who has made an awful mess. Certainly forces operating through human consciousness control events.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the Earth are never alone or weary of life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It often happens that those of whom we speak least on earth are best known in heaven.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The dearest friend on earth is a mere shadow compared to Jesus Christ.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
An aged Christian, with the snow of time upon his head, may remind us that those points of earth are whitest which are nearest to heaven.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Objects close to the eye shut out much larger objects on the horizon; and splendors born only of the earth eclipse the stars. So it is with people who sometimes cover up the entire disc of eternity with a dollar, and so quench transcendent glories with a little shining dust.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I want to find someone on the earth so intelligent that he welcomes opinions which he condemns.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is no such thing on earth as an uninteresting subject; the only thing that can exist is an uninterested person.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The true object of all human life is play. Earth is a task garden; heaven is a playground.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Did universal charity prevail, earth would be a heaven, and hell a fable.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Each blade of grass has its spot on earth whence it draws its life, its strength; and so is man rooted to the land from which he draws his faith together with his life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The earth laughs in flowers.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is hardly a man on earth who will take advice unless he is certain that it is positively bad.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We will look upon the earth and her sister planets as being with us, not for us. One does not rape a sister.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I am quite serious when I say that I do not believe there are, on the whole earth besides, so many intensified bores as in these United States. No man can form an adequate idea of the real meaning of the word, without coming here.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Everything on the earth has a purpose, every disease an herb to cure it, and every person a mission.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Life is a series of diminishments. Each cessation of an activity either from choice or some other variety of infirmity is a death, a putting to final rest. Each loss, of friend or precious enemy, can be equated with the closing off of a room containing blocks of nerves and soon after the closing off the nerves atrophy and that part of oneself, in essence, drops away. The self is lightened, is held on earth by a gram less of mass and will.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If there is anybody in this land who thoroughly believes that the meek shall inherit the earth they have not often let their presence be known.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Women have been taught that, for us, the earth is flat, and that if we venture out, we will fall off the edge. Some of us have ventured out nevertheless, and so far we have not fallen off. It is my faith, my feminist faith, that we will not.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
All personal, psychological, social, and institutionalized domination on this earth can be traced back to its source: the phallic identities of men.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The will to domination is a ravenous beast. There are never enough warm bodies to satiate its monstrous hunger. Once alive, this beast grows and grows, feeding on all the life around it, scouring the earth to find new sources of nourishment. This beast lives in each man who battens on female servitude.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
No culture on earth outside of mid-century suburban America has ever deployed one woman per child without simultaneously assigning her such major productive activities as weaving, farming, gathering, temple maintenance, and tent-building. The reason is that full-time, one-on-one child-raising is not good for women or children.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian dietMore [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is in these acts called trivialities that the seeds of joy are forever wasted, until men and women look round with haggard faces at the devastation their own waste has made, and say, the earth bears no harvest of sweetness -- calling their denial knowledge.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The earth only has so much bounty to offer and inventing ever larger and more notional prices for that bounty does not change its real value.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A man is known by the books he reads, by the company he keeps, by the praise he gives, by his dress, by his tastes, by his distastes, by the stories he tells, by his gait, by the notion of his eye, by the look of his house, of his chamber; for nothing on earth is solitary but every thing hath affinities infinite.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The moment we indulge our affections, the earth is metamorphosed, there is no winter and no night; all tragedies, all ennui s, vanish, all duties even.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Of all things upon earth that bleed and grow, a herb most bruised is woman.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The last sound on the worthless earth will be two human beings trying to launch a homemade spaceship and already quarreling about where they are going next.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There are more ideas on earth than intellectuals imagine. And these ideas are more active, stronger, more resistant, more passionate than politicians think. We have to be there at the birth of ideas, the bursting outward of their force: not in books expressing them, but in events manifesting this force, in struggles carried on around ideas, for or against them. Ideas do not rule the world. But it is because the world has ideas... that it is not passively ruled by those who are its leaders or those who would like to teach it, once and for all, what it must think.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Poetry is the language in which man explores his own amazement... says heaven and earth in one word... speaks of himself and his predicament as though for the first time. It has the virtue of being able to say twice as much as prose in half the time, and the drawback, if you do not give it your full attention, of seeming to say half as much in twice the time.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We are not going to be able to operate our Spaceship Earth successfully nor for much longer unless we see it as a whole spaceship and our fate as common. It has to be everybody or nobody.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
My experience has taught me, and it has become a principle with me, that it is never any benefit to give out and out, to man or woman, money, food, clothing, or anything else, if they are able-bodied and can work and earn what they need, when there is anything on earth for them to do. This is my principle and I try to act upon it. To pursue a contrary course would ruin any community in the world and make them idlers.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
He felt with the force of a revelation that to throw up the clods of earth manfully is as beneficent as to revolutionize the world. It was not the matter of the work, but the mind that went into it, that counted -- and the man who was not content to do small things well would leave great things undone.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The stars which shone over Babylon and the stable in Bethlehem still shine as brightly over the Empire State Building and your front yard today. They perform their cycles with the same mathematical precision, and they will continue to affect each thing on earth, including man, as long as the earth exists.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The only perfect love to be found on earth is not sexual love, which is riddled with hostility and insecurity, but the wordless commitment of families, which takes as its model mother-love. This is not to say that fathers have no place, for father-love, with its driving for self-improvement and discipline, is also essential to survival, but that uncorrected father-love, father-love as it were practiced by both parents, is a way to annihilation.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
On earth there is nothing great but man; in man there is nothing great but mind.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Nothing is further than earth from heaven, and nothing is nearer than heaven to earth.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If we could sniff or swallow something that would, for five or six hours each day, abolish our solitude as individuals, atone us with our fellows in a glowing exaltation of affection and make life in all its aspects seem not only worth living, but divinely beautiful and significant, and if this heavenly, world-transfiguring drug were of such a kind that we could wake up next morning with a clear head and an undamaged constitution -- then, it seems to me, all our problems (and not merely the one small problem of discovering a novel pleasure) would be wholly solved and earth would become paradise.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
