When Tony Benn became a minister in the 1960s
and I think this must be apocryphal
he had a huge map of Britain hung upside down in his office, so the channel was at the top and Scotland was at the bottom and, apparently, he said, "This is how we need to look at this country, with the money and the power draining by force of gravity out of the south east." That was a great idea. I rather liked him for that. I don't know if it's actually true or not.
Neal Ascherson Draining Sayings By Neal Ascherson: When Tony Benn became a minister in the 1960s and I think this must be

Abusive relationships exist because they provide enough rations of warmth, laughter, and affection to clutch onto like a security blanket in the heap of degradation. The good times are the initial euphoria that keeps addicts draining their wallets for toxic substances to inject into their veins. Scraps of love are food for an abusive relationship.Maggie Young Draining Sayings By Maggie Young: Abusive relationships exist because they provide enough rations of warmth, laughter, and affection to clutch
If your relationship is draining your energy, making you lose yourself and taking your attention away from God, then you are not in a relationship but a cult. You are busy creating an idol (mini-God) for yourself.Kemi Sogunle Draining Sayings By Kemi Sogunle: If your relationship is draining your energy, making you lose yourself and taking your attention
History: *The owner noticed a soft, oozing mass on the head. *Mr. Snooze has been fighting with another cat recently. Assessment: *Mr. Snooze has a low grade fever. *There is an abscess on his head. An abscess is a pocket of pus that forms near an old bite or scratch wound. It is a collection of bacteria, white blood cells, and red blood cells. In other words, an abscess is an infected area under the skin. This abscess is draining. Treatment Plan: *If the abscess was not already draining, the doctor would have to sedate the cat and then surgically get the abscess to drain. If an abscess does not drain, it will be difficult to treat even with a medication. *Mr. Snooze is sent home with an oral antibiotic. This will help the cat fight off the bacteria that are causing the infection. *The owner is instructed to "hot pack" the wound multiple times a day. TheMarcy Blesy Draining Sayings By Marcy Blesy: History: *The owner noticed a soft, oozing mass on the head. *Mr. Snooze has been

He's almost not human.Seth Gilliam Draining Sayings By Seth Gilliam: I was surprised at the level of commitment that Andrew Lincoln has. The extreme situations

"Like vampires are any different. Oh, accept for the fact that my boys don't kill those they fuck. Vampires get off on having a life in their hands, the power of draining their victim's life force. Wolves revel in life. You are death and you breed only death.
Franca Storm Draining Sayings By Franca Storm: Luca scoffed. "Wolves never change.""Excuse me?" Ryan demanded."All about instant gratification. Reacting purely on instinct
Parasitism is the only practice of the church; with its ideal of anaemia, its holiness, draining all blood, all love, all hope for life; the beyond as the will to negate every reality; the cross as the mark of recognition for the most subterranean conspiracy that ever existed-against health, beauty, whatever has turned out well, courage, spirit, graciousness of the soul, against life itself.Friedrich Nietzsche Draining Sayings By Friedrich Nietzsche: Parasitism is the only practice of the church; with its ideal of anaemia, its holiness,
There's often times a big difference between what you actually thought/felt in a situation and what you think you thought/felt. You have to do a lot of work to make your thoughts/feelings possible to be understood by other people. It's very draining, though also cathartic.Marie Calloway Draining Sayings By Marie Calloway: There's often times a big difference between what you actually thought/felt in a situation and
[Women] are conditioned to ever prove ourselves, as if our value is contingent on our ability to meet the expectations of others. As if our worth is a tank forever draining that we must fill and fill. We complete tasks and in some half-buried way believe that if we don't, we will be discredited. Sometimes, this is true. But here is a question: Do you want to be a reliable source of literary art (or whatever writing you do), or of prompt emails?Melissa Febos Draining Sayings By Melissa Febos: [Women] are conditioned to ever prove ourselves, as if our value is contingent on our

Tonight I came back to the hotel alone; the other has decided to return later on. The anxieties are already here, like the poison already prepared (jealousy, abandonment, restlessness); they merely wait for a little time to pass in order to be able to declare themselves with some propriety. I pick up a book and take a sleeping pill, "calmly." The silence of this huge hotel is echoing, indifferent, idiotic (faint murmur of draining bathtubs); the furniture and the lamps are stupid; nothing friendly that might warm ("I'm cold, let's go back to Paris). Anxiety mounts; I observe its progress, like Socrates chatting (as I am reading) and feeling the cold of the hemlock rising in his body; I hear it identify itself moving up, like an inexorable figure, against the background of the things that are here.
Roland Barthes Draining Sayings By Roland Barthes: 13084Tonight I came back to the hotel alone; the other has decided to return later
Love is messy, painful and emotionally draining. It hardly seems worth it.Alice Clayton Draining Sayings By Alice Clayton: Love is messy, painful and emotionally draining. It hardly seems worth it.
I pointed, still unable to utter a word. Tim looked down at the spectacle behind the shed, his face swiftly draining of color. He gripped my arm with a clammy hand. And then he did something I'd been waiting half my life to see: he dropped into a dead swoon at my feet.Rosie Genova Draining Sayings By Rosie Genova: I pointed, still unable to utter a word. Tim looked down at the spectacle behind
This is true of any device that uses power, which is a handy thing to know. For example, people worry about leaving disconnected chargers plugged into the wall for fear that they're draining power. Are they right? Heat flow analysis provides a simple rule of thumb: If an unused charger isn't warm to the touch, it's using less than a penny of electricity a day. For a small smartphone charger, if it's not warm to the touch, it's using less than a penny a year. This is true of almost any powered device.Randall Munroe Draining Sayings By Randall Munroe: This is true of any device that uses power, which is a handy thing to
Where the blue water began, I could not guess. It stretched out far enough to reach and touch the sky. The contrasting blues of the two vast expanses did not meld together, kept apart by a line that rimmed the world, a horizon line that perhaps prevented the water from rising into the heavens and the sky from draining into the sea.Michael Puttonen Draining Sayings By Michael Puttonen: Where the blue water began, I could not guess. It stretched out far enough to
Steve [sports psychiatrist] had already taught me to try and stop worrying so much about pleasing everyone. We knew that this was one of my most draining flaws and he again used three groups to clarify my thinking. There would always be some people, Steve said, who would care about me and love me. In contrast there would also be a select group of people who would never warm to me - no matter what I did. And in the middle came the overwhelming mass who were largely indifferent to any of my failures or triumphs. I needed to understand that most people didn't really care what I did or said. All my anguish about how they might perceive me was redundant. Steve helped me realize that I spent too much time trying to please those oblivious people in the middle or, more problematically, the small group who would never change their critical opinion of me. I should concentrate on the people who really did show concern for me.Victoria Pendleton Draining Sayings By Victoria Pendleton: Steve [sports psychiatrist] had already taught me to try and stop worrying so much about
People under the influence of cults is similar to that we observe in addicts. Typical behaviour for both includes draining bank accounts, neglecting children, destroying relations with family and losing interest in anything except the drug or cult.Keith Henson Draining Sayings By Keith Henson: People under the influence of cults is similar to that we observe in addicts. Typical
I sometimes see a shortcoming in myself, how little patience or understanding I have for many people in the way they act. I am able to see the fragility in some, but I only have so much time to wade through their manipulations and traps and draining behaviour. Some people think I'm heartless in leaving others to suffer their own selves.Bill Callahan Draining Sayings By Bill Callahan: I sometimes see a shortcoming in myself, how little patience or understanding I have for
I just got back from Hawaii on Saturday, and it's so depressing how quickly all the stresses and the stressful energy of L.A. comes bombarding back. Everyone's in a rush, you're annoying everyone, get out of their way, everyone's most important than you are, has got somewhere more important to be - very draining town. But I still love it in many ways. I wouldn't leave California. I think it's a fantastic state, if you can't be in Hawaii all the time.Natalie Maines Draining Sayings By Natalie Maines: I just got back from Hawaii on Saturday, and it's so depressing how quickly all
One of the heaviest load so many people are carrying today is neither thoughts about things they lack nor things they wish to have, nor how to manage what they already have, but toxic words that have taken a greater portion of their thoughts and such words not just occupying a great part of their hearts, but also draining their very joy in life!Ernest Agyemang Yeboah Draining Sayings By Ernest Agyemang Yeboah: One of the heaviest load so many people are carrying today is neither thoughts about

Oh, it's you,' her head lolled back as she stared up at Owen. Blood was draining in the wrong direction again. He stooped down lower and lifted her right arm over his head.
'Wow. You're really hot.' He commented when her forearm rested against the back of his neck. You're one to talk; she thought and giggled to herself.
Emma Jackson Draining Sayings By Emma Jackson: Oh, it's you,' her head lolled back as she stared up at Owen. Blood was
The Nile, draining out into the Mediterranean. The bright lights of Cairo announce the opening of the north-flowing river's delta, with Jerusalem's answering high beams to the northeast. This 4,258 mile braid of human life, first navigated end-to-end in 2004, is visible in a single glance from space.Chris Hadfield Draining Sayings By Chris Hadfield: The Nile, draining out into the Mediterranean. The bright lights of Cairo announce the opening

I eat pretty clean, but the training is tiring. When you're training two times a day it can be really draining, so I'd rather stick with the diet.Daniel Cudmore Draining Sayings By Daniel Cudmore: I eat pretty clean, but the training is tiring. When you're training two times a
Let me take you in my arms, spilling down all my dreams into your eyes and draining down all my love into your heart. Let me make the whole universe sings the song that I wrote for you, where the sun craves to go down every morning and moon waits to raise again every night eagerly just to see us burn down the walls we have built around us, inside each other's arms.Akshay Vasu Draining Sayings By Akshay Vasu: Let me take you in my arms, spilling down all my dreams into your eyes
It has nothing to do with the emotional demands of a role; I've done comedies that are as draining to me as any drama.Sean Penn Draining Sayings By Sean Penn: It has nothing to do with the emotional demands of a role; I've done comedies
Romance writing is a passion and the art of expressionism through the written word is a love affair... Anyone who tells you differently has never immersed themselves into something so mentally, physically and spiritually draining and rewarding in their lives as it is to write a book. It is both terrifying and exhilarating at the same time and possibly one of the most rewarding things in the world next to parenting.Julie Garver Draining Sayings By Julie Garver: Romance writing is a passion and the art of expressionism through the written word is
What should we do?, I asked, and I had a pained feeling I thought was the beginning of love.
In those early months we clung to each other with a rather silly desperation, because, in spite of everything my mother or Mrs Jordan could say, there was nothing that really prevented us from seeing each other. With imagined tragedy hovering over us, we became inseparable, two halves creating the whole: yin and yang. I was victim to his hero. I was always in danger and he was always rescuing me. I would fall and he would lift me up. It was exhilarating and draining. The emotional effect of saving and being saved was addicting to both of us. And that, as much as anything we ever did in bed, was how we made love to each other: conjoined where my weaknesses needed protection.
Amy Tan Draining Sayings By Amy Tan: What should we do?, I asked, and I had a pained feeling I thought was
Prayer-though it is often draining, even an agony-is in the long term the greatest source of power that is possible.Timothy Keller Draining Sayings By Timothy Keller: Prayer-though it is often draining, even an agony-is in the long term the greatest source
The silences here are retreats of sound, like the retreat of the surf before a tidal wave: sound draining away, down slopes of acoustic passage, to gather, someplace else, to a great surge of noise.Thomas Pynchon Draining Sayings By Thomas Pynchon: The silences here are retreats of sound, like the retreat of the surf before a

When I do a 30-minute meal, for instance, on Food Network, that's my food you see at the end of the show and it's not perfect. And if sometimes things break or drop or the pasta hits the wall when I'm draining it, they never stop tape. They just kind of let me go with it.Rachael Ray Draining Sayings By Rachael Ray: When I do a 30-minute meal, for instance, on Food Network, that's my food you
As I saw myself moving ever farther toward the social margin, nothing healed me of a sore and angry heart like a walk through the city. To see in the street the fifty different ways people struggle to remain human - the variety and inventiveness of survival techniques - was to feel the pressure relieved, the overflow draining off. I felt in my nerve endings the common refusal to go under.Vivian Gornick Draining Sayings By Vivian Gornick: As I saw myself moving ever farther toward the social margin, nothing healed me of
This is no small thing. Indeed, I would venture that, more than any other single quality, it is the relentless moment-by-moment forgetting, this draining of the pool of sense impression almost as quickly as it fills, that gives the experience of consciousness under marijuana its peculiar texture. Its helps account for the sharpening of sensory perceptions, for the aura of profundity in which cannabis bathes the most ordinary insights, and, perhaps most important of all, for the sense that time has slowed or even stopped. For it is only by forgetting that we ever really drop the thread of time and approach the experience of living in the present moment, so elusive in ordinary hours. And the wonder of that experience, perhaps more than any other, seems to be at the very heart of the human desire to change consciousness, whether by means of drugs or any other technique.Michael Pollan Draining Sayings By Michael Pollan: This is no small thing. Indeed, I would venture that, more than any other single
Don't waste another minute dealing with a toxic, negative, energy-draining person. Some people are wired for negativity. They love being argumentative, combative and abusive. Run for your life as quickly as possible.Les Brown Draining Sayings By Les Brown: Don't waste another minute dealing with a toxic, negative, energy-draining person. Some people are wired
The way I pictured it, all this grief would be like a winter night when you're standing outside. You'll warm up once you get used to the cold. Except after you've been out there for awhile, you feel the warmth draining out of you and you realize the opposite is happening; you're getting colder and colder, as the body heat you brought outside with you seeps out of your skin. Instead of getting used to it, you get weaker the longer you endure it.Rob Sheffield Draining Sayings By Rob Sheffield: The way I pictured it, all this grief would be like a winter night when
Employment leaves you bare and emptySunday Adelaja Draining Sayings By Sunday Adelaja: Employment leaves you bare and empty
Martyrs of a sort they were, these children, along with the town drunk, in his basketball sneakers and buttonless overcoat, draining blackberry brandy from a paper bag as he sat on his bench in Kazmierczak Square, risking nightly death by exposure; martyrs too of a sort were the men and women hastening to adulterous trysts, risking disgrace and divorce for their fix of motel love - all sacrificing the outer world to the inner, proclaiming with this priority that everything solid-seeming and substantial is in fact a dream, of less account than a merciful rush of feeling.John Updike Draining Sayings By John Updike: Martyrs of a sort they were, these children, along with the town drunk, in his
There are many tough sides to being a jockey. Injury is something we all dread, but spending lengthy periods in the bath or the sauna just to shed a few pounds can be an exhausting and draining experience.Tony McCoy Draining Sayings By Tony McCoy: There are many tough sides to being a jockey. Injury is something we all dread,
Politics is quite draining. There are so many heated discussions and press conferences to cover during a convention.Megan Alexander Draining Sayings By Megan Alexander: Politics is quite draining. There are so many heated discussions and press conferences to cover
In many U.S. schools, sports instilled leadership and persistence in one group of kids while draining focus and resources from academics for everyone. The lesson wasn't that sports couldn't coexist with education; it was that sports had nothing to do with education.Amanda Ripley Draining Sayings By Amanda Ripley: In many U.S. schools, sports instilled leadership and persistence in one group of kids while
Clevinger really thought he was right, but Yossarian had proof, because strangers he didn't know shot at him with cannons every time he flew up into the air to drop bombs on them, and it wasn't funny at all. And if that wasn't funny, there were lots of things that weren't even funnier. There was nothing funny about living like a bum in a tent in Pianosa between fat mountains behind him and a placid blue sea in front that could gulp down a person with a cramp in the twinkling of an eye and ship him back to shore three days later, all charges paid, bloated, blue and putrescent, water draining out through both cold nostrils.Joseph Heller Draining Sayings By Joseph Heller: Clevinger really thought he was right, but Yossarian had proof, because strangers he didn't know
If I go for a time without seeing water, I feel like something's slowly draining out of me. It's probably like the feeling a music lover has when, for whatever reason, he's separated from music for a long time.Haruki Murakami Draining Sayings By Haruki Murakami: If I go for a time without seeing water, I feel like something's slowly draining
We also need to be willing to make room in our lives for the impending birth of our dreams. This might mean emptying our life of clutter such as wasted time, energy, resources, or draining relationships. These things can jeopardize our dreams by distracting us at a time when we should be more focused than ever.Christine Caine Draining Sayings By Christine Caine: We also need to be willing to make room in our lives for the impending
Not all vegetables are this draining. Lettuce doesn't bring heartache. Turnips don't ask for your soul. Potatoes don't care where you are or even where they are. Tomatoes cuddle up to anyone who'll give them mulch and sunshine. But giants like Max need you every second. You can forget about a whiz-bang social life.Joan Bauer Draining Sayings By Joan Bauer: Not all vegetables are this draining. Lettuce doesn't bring heartache. Turnips don't ask for your
For me, working is the ultimate vacation, for lack of a better word. Its being in-between jobs were it becomes emotional, and brutal, and draining.Ashley Bell Draining Sayings By Ashley Bell: For me, working is the ultimate vacation, for lack of a better word. Its being
After a time, it did not seem a short time either, for the draining away of one's blood, no matter how willingly it be given, is a terrible feeling, Van Helsing held up a warning finger. "Do not stir," he said. "But I fear that with growing strength she may wake, and that would make danger, oh, so much danger. But I shall precaution take. I shall give hypodermic injection of morphia." He proceeded then, swiftlyBram Stoker Draining Sayings By Bram Stoker: After a time, it did not seem a short time either, for the draining away

It was not a physical fatigue - he went to the gym regularly and felt better than he had in years - but a draining lassitude that numbed the margins of his mind. He got up and went out to the verandah; the sudden hot air, the roar of his neighbor's generator, the smell of diesel exhaust fumes brought a lightness to his head. Frantic winged insects flitted around the electric bulb. He felt, looking out at the muggy darkness farther away, as if he could float, and all he needed to do was to let himself go.Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie Draining Sayings By Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie: It was not a physical fatigue - he went to the gym regularly and felt
GPS's battery draining behavior is most noticeable during the initial acquisition of the satellite's navigation message: the satellite's state, ephemeris, and almanac.Robert Love Draining Sayings By Robert Love: GPS's battery draining behavior is most noticeable during the initial acquisition of the satellite's navigation
She was undergoing daily radiation treatments, which were physically draining and made her forgetful. "In any version of picturing this moment - that fantasy of what you want to be - I would have been strong, smart, and inspiring confidence," she told me. "I wanted to be a role model in that perfect 'put together' sense. Instead, I told them I had cancer and would need their support." TheirSheryl Sandberg Draining Sayings By Sheryl Sandberg: She was undergoing daily radiation treatments, which were physically draining and made her forgetful. "In
The wind, as a direct motive power, is wholly inapplicable to a system of machine labour, for during a calm season the whole business of the country would be thrown out of gear. Before the era of steam-engines, windmills were tried for draining mines; but though they were powerful machines, they were very irregular, so that in a long tract of calm weather the mines were drowned, and all the workmen thrown idle.William Stanley Jevons Draining Sayings By William Stanley Jevons: The wind, as a direct motive power, is wholly inapplicable to a system of machine

Judge bucked and Michaels gasped as his dick was squeezed to the point of pain. "Fuck! Austin!" Judge shouted under him, his back muscles flexing hard, his fist clenching the edge of the mattress. It only took a split second of his dick being deliciously hugged by those constricting walls to know Judge was coming apart. Coming so hard, so beautifully for him. "Yeah, sweetheart." Michaels pushed hard against Judge's prostate, wrenching another strangled yell from him. Judge shook and ground his dick into the mattress, draining the last of his orgasm while Michaels stirred up to began his own. "I'mA.E. Via Draining Sayings By A.E. Via: Judge bucked and Michaels gasped as his dick was squeezed to the point of pain.
Five years ago, I said vows. And I believe in vows. I meant them, and not just when I said them out loud for an audience to hear but as a motto and a life choice. For as long as we both shall live. I hadn't anticipated the sandy flow of feeling, the yin-yang of love and dread, or the residual buildup of grievances and the slow draining of the benefit of doubt. In good times and in bad. Yes, sure, but in my naivete, I interpreted this as external; we would support each other when the world imposed and intruded. No one tells you that it's the internal that's the real challenge: those moments of decisiveness equal to taking a vow, when you feel the clawing grip of your pormises.Julie Buxbaum Draining Sayings By Julie Buxbaum: Five years ago, I said vows. And I believe in vows. I meant them, and
He could feel certainty draining away. And he'd always been certain.Terry Pratchett Draining Sayings By Terry Pratchett: He could feel certainty draining away. And he'd always been certain.
I'm not that girl who's really concerned with it. I've dated a bit and it's just draining to me. If it's not going to happen natural, obviously it's going to be someone in the industry because that's the only time people ever really see me.Kelly Clarkson Draining Sayings By Kelly Clarkson: I'm not that girl who's really concerned with it. I've dated a bit and it's
It's definitely a dream come true to be recognized and to be able to sign autographs. But, it's also a lot of hard work and can be draining. If you don't know already, you will quickly learn who your real friends are.Christina Aguilera Draining Sayings By Christina Aguilera: It's definitely a dream come true to be recognized and to be able to sign

Cynicism, disillusionment, and a dispiriting sense of purposeless has cast a shadow over American society seriously draining it of any language or vision that might imagine a different sort of society from the dysfunctional, militarizing, and deeply unequal social order that marked the current historical period.Henry Giroux Draining Sayings By Henry Giroux: Cynicism, disillusionment, and a dispiriting sense of purposeless has cast a shadow over American society
And suddenly, magically, as she started at the single enameled button, she felt as if a plug ad been pulled somewhere deep within her, and all of her emotions - her terror and her rage and her guilt and her hate - were spiraling, draining out of her like poison from an abscess. What remained was the clarity of a single thought.Stephen Lloyd Jones Draining Sayings By Stephen Lloyd Jones: And suddenly, magically, as she started at the single enameled button, she felt as if
I do like working on independent films where it is a smaller budget and less pressure. The pace is also quicker than that of a big budget film. You are shooting at a fairly fast pace. Sitting around for three or four days can be quite draining. So I guess in terms of film or television, I would say filming an independent feature.Colm Meaney Draining Sayings By Colm Meaney: I do like working on independent films where it is a smaller budget and less

It's so much fun to fight the odds, but it's so draining to fight stupidity.Peter Bolton Draining Sayings By Peter Bolton: It's so much fun to fight the odds, but it's so draining to fight stupidity.
A warrior of light respects the main teaching of the I Ching: 'To persevere is favourable.'
He knows that perseverance is not the same thing as insistence. There are
times when battles go on longer than necessary, draining him of strength and
enthusiasm.
At such moments, the warrior thinks: 'A prolonged war finally destroys the
victors too.'
Then he withdraws his forces from the battlefield and allows himself a
respite. He perseveres in his desire, but knows he must wait for the best moment to attack.
A warrior always returns to the fray. He never does so out of stubbornness,
but because he has noticed a change in the weather.
Paulo Coelho Draining Sayings By Paulo Coelho: A warrior of light respects the main teaching of the I Ching: 'To persevere is
Of course I was happy to sit and listen, but I understood perfectly well that the Chairman wasn't telling these things to me because he wanted me to know them. He was clearing them from his mind, just like draining water from a bucket. So I listened closely not to his words, but to the tone of his voice; because in the same way that sound rises as a bucket is emptied, I could hear the Chairman's voice softening as he spoke.Arthur Golden Draining Sayings By Arthur Golden: Of course I was happy to sit and listen, but I understood perfectly well that
FROM A WILD NIGHT'S BRIDE by Victoria Vane:
His gaze glued to the bed, Ned made a mechanical backward retreat to the center of the room where he had a clearer prospect of its crowning glory. His vision rose to the top of the headboard, to the heraldic shield seated betwixt the carved figures of a lion and a unicorn. His gaze slid with dread to the engraved scroll beneath. Dieu Et Mon Driot. God and my right, the motto of the king. His chest seized. The room began to spin. He looked to Phoebe, aware that the blood was draining from his face, and that his voice emerged as a strangled sound. "May the same God save me ... for I'm going to be hung, drawn, and quartered for spending last night rutting in the King of England's bed!" coming April 27, 2012 from Breathless Press
Emery Lee Draining Sayings By Emery Lee: FROM A WILD NIGHT'S BRIDE by Victoria Vane:His gaze glued to the bed, Ned made
It's all about time, dimwit time, inferior time, people checking watches and other devices, other reminders. This is time draining out of our lives. Cities were built to measure time, to remove time from nature. There's an endless counting down, he said. When you strip away surfaces, when you see into it, what's left is terror. This is the thing that literature was meant to cure. The epic poem, the bedtime story.Don DeLillo Draining Sayings By Don DeLillo: It's all about time, dimwit time, inferior time, people checking watches and other devices, other

Humanity cannot afford to acknowledge all of the blood that it spills and the destruction it inflicts on the world in its effort to perpetuate itself. Desacralization is a process that allows us to sever any relationship we might feel to other living things. By draining the aliveness out of things, we can pretend that our control and manipulation are of little consequence. Man the trapper becomes man the taxidermist, disemboweling nature of its spontaneity and movement, and stuffing it with a leaden inanimateness.Jeremy Rifkin Draining Sayings By Jeremy Rifkin: Humanity cannot afford to acknowledge all of the blood that it spills and the destruction

If your environment keeps draining your energy, it's like having a leaky bank account, where any money you're putting into the bank, such as by seeing an energy healer, keeps slipping out.

In blackjack gambling, as easy as it seems to win, sometimes you need to lose, let out the bad air or karma, a bleed of your life or soul, like draining a blood blister.

Historians Will and Ariel Durant have written in The Story of Civilization: The Reformation that at the time of Luther, "a gallon of beer per day was the usual allowance per person, even for nuns." This may help to explain why beer figures so prominently in the life and writings of the great reformer. He was German, after all, and he lived at a time when beer was the European drink of choice. Moreover, having been freed from what he considered to be a narrow and life-draining religious legalism, he stepped into the world ready to enjoy its pleasures to the glory of God. For Luther, beer flowed best in a vibrant Christian life.Stephen Mansfield Draining Sayings By Stephen Mansfield: Historians Will and Ariel Durant have written in The Story of Civilization: The Reformation that

When we recall the great influence which Spenser's poetry has exerted on English poets who have lived and written since his day, we can clearly see how the two kinds of Platonism - a direct Platonism, and a Platonism long ago transmuted and worked right down into the emotions of common people by the passionate Christianity of the Dark and Middle Ages - combined to beget the infinite suggestiveness which is now contained in such words as 'love' and 'beauty'. Let us remember, then, that every time we abuse these terms, or use them too lightly, we are draining them of their power; every time a society journalist or a film producer exploits this vast suggestiveness to tickle a vanity or dignify a lust, he is squandering a great pile of spiritual capital which has been laid up by centuries of weary effort.Owen Barfield Draining Sayings By Owen Barfield: When we recall the great influence which Spenser's poetry has exerted on English poets who
While many people like the idea of exercising unconditional love, most eventually find it too draining and impossible to sustain, often because the attempt to practice it is misunderstood, discouraged, brought under attack, or made a target of willful abuse. As sad as it may be to admit, in our modern world people are far more accustomed to hearing news of war, genocide, murder, disasters, famine, and disease than they are to hearing anything about acts of love or grace.Aberjhani Draining Sayings By Aberjhani: While many people like the idea of exercising unconditional love, most eventually find it too

I started homeschooling when I was 13. I wasn't really doing the social media thing yet; I didn't have any fans, but I knew that public school wasn't the place for me.
