Quote: Friedrich Nietzsche Living in a constant chase after gain compels people to expend their spirit to the point of exhaustion in continual pretense and overreaching and anticipating other. Virtue has come to consist of doing something in less time that someone else. Hours in which honesty is permitted have become rare, and when they arrive one is tired and does not only want to "let oneself go" but actually wishes to stretch out as long and wide and ungainly as one happens to be... Soon we may well reach the point where people can no longer give in to the desire for a vita contemplativa (that is, taking a walk with ideas and friends) without self-contempt and a bad conscience. Friedrich Nietzsche
Quote: Anthony Bourdain Understand, when you eat meat, that something did die. You have an obligation to value it - not just the sirloin but also all those wonderful tough little bits. Anthony Bourdain
Quote: Albert Einstein Try and penetrate with our limited means the secrets of nature and you will find that, behind all the discernible concatenations, there remains something subtle, intangible and inexplicable. Veneration for this force beyond anything that we can comprehend is my religion. To that extent I am, in point of fact, religious. Albert Einstein
Quote: Billy Graham I don't have freedom in the United States to go into a public school and preach the Gospel, nor is a student free in a public school to pray, or a teacher free to read the Bible publicly to the students. At the same time, we have a great degree of freedom for which I am grateful. Billy Graham
Quote: Albert Einstein My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind. Albert Einstein
Quote: Bruce Lee It is not a shame to be knocked down by other people. The important thing is to ask when youâre being knocked down, âWhy am I being knocked down?â If a person can reflect in this way, then there is hope for this person. Bruce Lee
Quote: Martin Luther King Jr. The question is not whether we will be extremists, but what kind of extremists we will be... The nation and the world are in dire need of creative extremists. Martin Luther King Jr.
Quote: Marcus Aurelius Marcus Aurelius: You have proven your valor once again, Maximus. Let us hope for the last time. Maximus: There is no one left to fight, sire. Marcus Aurelius: There is always someone left to fight. Marcus Aurelius
Quote: C. S. Lewis Not that I am (I think) in much danger of ceasing to believe in God. The real danger is of coming to believe such dreadful things about Him. The conclusion I dread is not 'So there's no God after all,' but 'So this is what God's really like. Deceive yourself no longer. C. S. Lewis
Quote: Marcus Aurelius Maximus: Caesar, your lifeâ¦ Marcus Aurelius: Please. Please, donât call me that. Please, come sit. Let us talk together now, very simply, as men. Maximus, talk. Marcus Aurelius
Quote: Julian Baggini Change When you try to cool down hot emotions, what tends to happen is that you end up either repressing them or losing them altogether. Neither is desirable. Without emotion, much social interaction loses its meaning or changes for the worse. Julian Baggini Change
Quote: Marcus Aurelius Marcus Aurelius: I want you to become the protector of Rome after I die. I will empower you to one end alone: To give power back to the people of Rome, and end the corruption that has crippled it. Will you accept this great honor I have offered you? Maximus: With all my heart, no. Marcus Aurelius
Quote: Nic Pizzolatto Change When you're a confused 19-year-old filled with questions you can't even articulate and a kind of black rage that feeds at your heart from the moment you wake up in the morning, and you discover Marcus Aurelius' 'The Meditations,' that changes your life. Nic Pizzolatto Change
Quote: Taylor Swift Happiness, Happy Red is such an interesting color to correlate with emotion, because it's on both ends of the spectrum. On one end you have happiness, falling in love, infatuation with someone, passion, all that. On the other end, you've got obsession, jealousy, danger, fear, anger and frustration. Taylor Swift Happiness, Happy
Quote: James Blunt Family I'm quite British in the sense of not expressing my emotions much. I save it for my songs. If you ask about a death in the family, or a lover, I will not be emotional. I'd probably answer with a smile. Because that's what we British blokes do. James Blunt Family
