I was wrong.Debbie Ford Exempt Sayings By Debbie Ford: I always felt like if I lived in true authentic self-expression and lived in service
The 2011 legislation was an effort to decrease the number of students competing with families and working people for scarce housing. San Francisco is home to 82,000 full-time students in 31 colleges and universities, but its institutes of higher learning provide housing for only about one-tenth of that population. In contrast, Boston successfully pushed its schools to meet the housing needs of 50 percent of students. The Board of Supervisors passed the law that made student housing exempt from the affordable-housing fee developers must pay. But with the exception of Kennedy, who has been building student housing in Berkeley for 20 years, no developers have stepped up to take advantage of the law.Anonymous Exempt Sayings By Anonymous: The 2011 legislation was an effort to decrease the number of students competing with families
This is a large petition. To intercede for a whole city needs a stretch of faith, and there are times when a prayer for one man is enough to stagger us. But how far-reaching was the psalmist's dying intercession! How comprehensive! How sublime! "Let the whole earth be filled with his glory." It doth not exempt a single country however crushed by the foot of superstition; it doth not exclude a single nation however barbarous.Charles Haddon Spurgeon Exempt Sayings By Charles Haddon Spurgeon: This is a large petition. To intercede for a whole city needs a stretch of

Nothing in the community lives in isolation from the rest, not even the queens of the social insects. Nothing lives only in itself, needing nothing from the community. Nothing lives only for itself, owing nothing to the community. Nothing is untouchable or untouched. Every life is on loan from the community from birth and without fail is paid back to the community in death. The community is a web of life, and every strand of the web is a path to all the other strands. Nothing is exempt or excused. Nothing is special. Nothing lives on a strand by itself, unconnected to the rest. As you saw yesterday, nothing is wasted, not a drop of water or a molecule of protein - or the egg of a fly. This is the sweetness and the miracle of it all, Jared. Everything that lives is food for another. Everything that feeds is ultimately itself fed upon or in death returns its substance to the community.Daniel Quinn Exempt Sayings By Daniel Quinn: Nothing in the community lives in isolation from the rest, not even the queens of
Instant enlightenment. A quintessential modernism, culture and religion accommodated to the age of fast food and bumper stickers. But psyche and spirit are not so exempt from the natural domain that they can simply produce self-change instantaneously, on demand. Wisdom precipitates through a notoriously slow apparatus of retorts and flasks, and it has to find receptive ground only in a properly seasoned mind.Kenny Smith Exempt Sayings By Kenny Smith: Instant enlightenment. A quintessential modernism, culture and religion accommodated to the age of fast food
Religious hatreds ought not to be propagated at all, but certainly not on a tax-exempt basis.James A. Michener Exempt Sayings By James A. Michener: Religious hatreds ought not to be propagated at all, but certainly not on a tax-exempt
Now, what class of actions always appear to us as automatic and neutral, inevitable and therefore exempt from censure? Our own. We always believe that what we did we had to do. Other men have free will, we ourselves live in a determined universe. And though we may know everything about our actions, how they are carried out and what results followed, we cannot know them for what they are, as we know that a rose is red and is scented, a plate of soup brown and hot and made of beans. Each man is a mystery to himself.Rebecca West Exempt Sayings By Rebecca West: Now, what class of actions always appear to us as automatic and neutral, inevitable and
Only the scenario writers are exempt. These are tied between the tails of two spirited Caucasian ponies, which are then driven off in opposite directions. This custom is called a conference.S.J Perelman Exempt Sayings By S.J Perelman: Only the scenario writers are exempt. These are tied between the tails of two spirited

In the century that has just passed, many of the intellectual elite went mad. It was as if, with the death of God, everyone suddenly turned into a saviour who wanted either to annihilate the obsolete world order or to establish a utopia. Naturally, there were writers among those who went mad. The fact that they had knowledge did not exempt intellectuals: there is madness everywhere. When one loses control over one's self, the result is madness.Gao Xingjian Exempt Sayings By Gao Xingjian: In the century that has just passed, many of the intellectual elite went mad. It

And because it may be too great a temptation to human frailty, apt to grasp at power, for the same persons, who have the power of making laws, to have also in their hands the power to execute them, whereby they may exempt themselves from obedience to the laws they make, and suit the law, both in its making, and execution, to their own private advantage.John Locke Exempt Sayings By John Locke: And because it may be too great a temptation to human frailty, apt to grasp
Churches are tax exempt because they are supposed to provide a public good. To prove that good to the IRS, churches arent supposed to hoard their money. They are supposed to spend it on goods and services for the faithful. Under this pretense, the church has made massive investments in tax free real estate all over the world. And when it comes to labor costs, they are almost free.Lawrence Wright Exempt Sayings By Lawrence Wright: Churches are tax exempt because they are supposed to provide a public good. To prove

The Safe Drinking Water Act, the safety provisions of the Clean Water Acts, the Clean Air Act, the Superfund Law - the gas industry is exempt from all these basic environmental and worker protections. They don't have to disclose the chemicals they use. They don't have to play by the same rules as anybody else.Josh Fox Exempt Sayings By Josh Fox: The Safe Drinking Water Act, the safety provisions of the Clean Water Acts, the Clean
The commandment to imitate Jesus does not appear suddenly in a world exempt from imitation; rather it is addressed to everyone that mimetic rivalry has affected. Non-Christians imagine that to be converted they must renounce an autonomy that all people possess naturally, a freedom and independence that Jesus would like to take away from them. In reality, once we imitate Jesus, we discover that our aspiration to autonomy has always made us bow down before individuals who may not be worse than we are but who are nonetheless bad models because we cannot imitate them without falling with them into the trap of rivalries in which we are ensnarled more and more.Rene Girard Exempt Sayings By Rene Girard: The commandment to imitate Jesus does not appear suddenly in a world exempt from imitation;
Catholic schools in Indonesia routinely accept non-Catholic students, but exempt them from studying religion. Obama's school documents, though, wrongly list him as being Indonesian.Aaron Klein Exempt Sayings By Aaron Klein: Catholic schools in Indonesia routinely accept non-Catholic students, but exempt them from studying religion. Obama's
Famine isn't unique to humans. All species are subject to it everywhere in the world. When the population of any species outstrips its food resources, that population declines until it's once again in balance with its resources. Mother Culture says that humans should be exempt from that process, so when she finds a population that has outstripped its resources, she rushes in food from the outside, thus making it a certainty that there will be even more of them to starve in the next generation. Because the population is never allowed to decline to the point at which it can be supported by its own resources, famine becomes a chronic feature of their lives.Daniel Quinn Exempt Sayings By Daniel Quinn: Famine isn't unique to humans. All species are subject to it everywhere in the world.
I don't think we get exempt from the pain because we live good lives. Some circumstances we can't control - in fact, most are truly beyond our abilities. Instead maybe it's how we get made new; it's one of the only times we slow down enough to listen and receive grace, real grace.Katherine Reay Exempt Sayings By Katherine Reay: I don't think we get exempt from the pain because we live good lives. Some
One of the most basic human instincts is the need to decorate. Nothing is exempt - the body, the objects one uses, from intimate to monumental, and all personal and ceremonial space. It is an instinct that responds ... to some deep inner urge that has been variously described as the horror of a vacuum and the need to put one's imprint on at least one small segment of the world.Ada Louise Huxtable Exempt Sayings By Ada Louise Huxtable: One of the most basic human instincts is the need to decorate. Nothing is exempt
It appears that no one is so unfortunate that he or she is exempt from spending cuts, while at the same time no one is so fortunate as to be ineligible for a tax cutJonathan Schell Exempt Sayings By Jonathan Schell: It appears that no one is so unfortunate that he or she is exempt from
In spite of their exhaustive sociological analyses of these various bureaucracies and how they did or did not represent the will of the working class or whether a political or economic revolution could bring workers to power, these Marxists never applied the same rigorous analyses to their own organizations. Implicit was always the assumption that their organization was somehow exempt from the pressures of society such as the racist and sexist muck that we are all raised with. They also held the assumption that their organization would not succumb to the very basic pressures society applies to all organizations, bureaucracies and institutions.Anonymous Exempt Sayings By Anonymous: In spite of their exhaustive sociological analyses of these various bureaucracies and how they did
Only Lawyers and mental defectives are automatically exempt for jury duty.George Bernard Shaw Exempt Sayings By George Bernard Shaw: Only Lawyers and mental defectives are automatically exempt for jury duty.
I'm not saying that President Obama should be exempt from criticism, nor do I believe it is some act of racial treason for a black person to hold our president accountable for his actions.Cornel West Exempt Sayings By Cornel West: I'm not saying that President Obama should be exempt from criticism, nor do I believe
I happened to notice that among the men who had willingly presented themselves for jury-service was one whom I knew to be the father of seven children. Under a law of Augustus's he was exempt for the rest of his life; yet he had not pleaded for exemption or mentioned the size of his family. I told the magistrate: "Strike this man's name off. He's a father of seven." He protested: "But, Caesar, he has made no attempt to excuse himself." "Exactly," I said, "he wants to be a juryman. Strike him off." I meant, of course,that the fellow was concealing his immunity from what every honest man considered a very thankless and disagreeable duty and that he therefore was almost certain to have crooked intentions. Crooked jurymen could pick up a lot of money by bribes, for it was a commonplace that one interested juryman could sway the opinions of a whole bunch of uninterested ones; and the majority verdict decided a case.Robert Graves Exempt Sayings By Robert Graves: I happened to notice that among the men who had willingly presented themselves for jury-service
We accept so many commitments in regard to life that a time comes when, despairing of ever managing to fulfill them all, we face the graves, we call upon death, "death, which brings help to destinies that have trouble coming true." But while death may exempt us from commitments we have made in regard to life, it cannot exempt us from our commitments to ourselves, especially the most important one: namely, the commitment to live in order to be worthy and deserving.Marcel Proust Exempt Sayings By Marcel Proust: We accept so many commitments in regard to life that a time comes when, despairing
Then he read the words of the scroll slowly, first in Japanese and then carefully translated into English:
'There is really nothing you must be.
And there is nothing you must do.
There is really nothing you must have.
And there is nothing you must know.
There is really nothing you must become.
However. It helps to understand
that fire burns, and when it rains,
the earth gets wet ... '
'Whatever, there are consequences. Nobody is exempt,' said the master.
Robert Fulghum Exempt Sayings By Robert Fulghum: Then he read the words of the scroll slowly, first in Japanese and then carefully
It is urged that the use of the masculine pronouns he, his, and him in all the constitutions and laws, is proof that only men were meant to be included in their provisions. If you insist on this version of the letter of the law, we shall insist that you be consistent and accept the other horn of the dilemma, which would compel you to exempt women from taxation for the support of the government and from penalties for the violation of laws. There is no she or her or hers in the tax laws, and this is equally true of all the criminal laws.Susan B. Anthony Exempt Sayings By Susan B. Anthony: It is urged that the use of the masculine pronouns he, his, and him in
However, this translation is, in the words of Dr. Giles, "excessively bad." He goes further in this criticism: "It is not merely a question of downright blunders, from which none can hope to be wholly exempt.Sun Tzu Exempt Sayings By Sun Tzu: However, this translation is, in the words of Dr. Giles, "excessively bad." He goes further
I'm not going to tell you it's not dangerous for you. It is. But if we don't do something, the Royals will be sentenced
to the Ice Caverns. You'll never see Galen or your mother again. I'll never see Rayna again."
"But you're mated to Rayna. Doesn't that make you a Royal, too?"
"Not a true Royal, that's not how it works. They're only talking about purebloods. Paca will be exempt, too. If they're sentenced to the Caverns, we'll both be free to choose different mates. But I don't want another mate, Emma. I want Rayna. I always have.
Anna Banks Exempt Sayings By Anna Banks: I'm not going to tell you it's not dangerous for you. It is. But if
I want to let little kids know that no matter what situation they come up in, that they're not exempt from success. All I ever wanted was for people to believe in me and just recognize my potential.

Microsoft had made it clear that the only way to preserve your station in Valley life was to create a monopoly. If you created a monopoly, you were at least partially exempt from the ordinary rapid cycle of creation and destruction.Michael Lewis Exempt Sayings By Michael Lewis: Microsoft had made it clear that the only way to preserve your station in Valley
Art demands what, to women, current civilisation won't give. There is for a Dostoyevsky writing against time on the corner of a crowded kitchen table a greater possibility of detachment than for a woman artist no matter how placed. Neither motherhood nor the more continuously exacting and indefinitely expansive responsibilities of even the simplest housekeeping can so effectively hamper her as the human demand, besieging her wherever she is, for an inclusive awareness, from which men, for good or ill, are exempt.Dorothy M. Richardson Exempt Sayings By Dorothy M. Richardson: Art demands what, to women, current civilisation won't give. There is for a Dostoyevsky writing
Locke recognized that people in power would be tempted to "exempt themselves from the obedience to the Laws they make, and suit the Law, both in its making and its execution, to their own private Wish, and thereby come to have a distinct Interest from the rest of the Community, contrary to the end of Society and Government."99Steven Pinker Exempt Sayings By Steven Pinker: Locke recognized that people in power would be tempted to "exempt themselves from the obedience
And this is the difference between me and the rest of the world: most people can let their feelings shift without a wildebeest smashing them up from the inside, but I, for some reason, cannot - and, still, I am more human than wildebeest so I'll never be exempt from the human need for other people to be near, but because I am part wildebeest they can't be too near, and I would like to apologize for that but I can't apologize for that, I can't apologize to everyone who deserves an apology for it, unless no one deserves anything, in which case, what a relief, because I can give everyone that nothing - I can give them nothing all day.Catherine Lacey Exempt Sayings By Catherine Lacey: And this is the difference between me and the rest of the world: most people
Let him keep his mouth closed, and shut up the portals (of his nostrils), and all his life he will be exempt from laborious exertion.Lao-Tzu Exempt Sayings By Lao-Tzu: Let him keep his mouth closed, and shut up the portals (of his nostrils), and
All Americans should be exempt from the atrocities of Obamacare - no exception.Austin Scott Exempt Sayings By Austin Scott: All Americans should be exempt from the atrocities of Obamacare - no exception.
Credit card companies are jacking up interest rates, lowering credit limits, and closing accounts - and people who have made timely payments are not exempt. So even if you pay off your balance - and that's tough when interest rates are insanely high - there's a good chance your credit limit will be slashed, and that will hurt your FICO score.Suze Orman Exempt Sayings By Suze Orman: Credit card companies are jacking up interest rates, lowering credit limits, and closing accounts -
The first great skeptic of American exceptionalism, he refused to believe that the country was exempt from the sober lessons of history.Ron Chernow Exempt Sayings By Ron Chernow: The first great skeptic of American exceptionalism, he refused to believe that the country was
Everybody thinks of others as being excessively human, with all the frailties and crotchets appertaining to that curious condition. But each of us also seems to regard himself as existing on a detached plane of observation, exempt (save in moments of avid crisis) from the strange whims of humanity en masse.Christopher Morley Exempt Sayings By Christopher Morley: Everybody thinks of others as being excessively human, with all the frailties and crotchets appertaining
Polyamorists call for the respect of the cycles of desire, which are far from being linear. For them, the idea of breaking off a relationship simply because it is going through a dry period is as ridiculous as the idea of chopping down a tree in the winter simply because it has lost its leaves, forgetting that after winter comes spring. Of course, they are no more exempt from the pain of romantic breakups than the next person, but they make such decisions after mature reflection and not as a result of pressure from ruling hormonal, passionate impulses.Francoise Simpere Exempt Sayings By Francoise Simpere: Polyamorists call for the respect of the cycles of desire, which are far from being
When you look at the money spent by labor unions for Democrats, it comes as no surprise the Democrats crafted a campaign-finance 'disclosure' bill with the thresholds adjusted to exempt unions.Mark McKinnon Exempt Sayings By Mark McKinnon: When you look at the money spent by labor unions for Democrats, it comes as
Before they went on vacation, Congress voted to exempt themselves from Obamacare. They gave themselves a special exemption because they thought it was too expensive. So the people who voted for Obamacare for us voted to exempt themselves from it. You know how doctors take the Hippocratic Oath. Congress apparently takes the 'Hypocritic Oath.'Jay Leno Exempt Sayings By Jay Leno: Before they went on vacation, Congress voted to exempt themselves from Obamacare. They gave themselves
Another means of silently lessening the inequality of property is to exempt all from taxation below a certain point, and to tax the higher portions or property in geometrical progression as they rise. Whenever there are in any country uncultivated lands and unemployed poor, it is clear that the laws of property have been so far extended as to violate natural right. The earth is given as a common stock for man to labor and live on.
Letter to James Madison, October 28, 1785
Thomas Jefferson Exempt Sayings By Thomas Jefferson: Another means of silently lessening the inequality of property is to exempt all from taxation
It becomes one, while exempt from woes, to look to the dangers.Sophocles Exempt Sayings By Sophocles: It becomes one, while exempt from woes, to look to the dangers.

But grant, the virtues of a temp'rate prime
Bless with an age exempt from scorn or crime;
An age that melts with unperceived decay,
And glides in modest Innocence away
Samuel Johnson Exempt Sayings By Samuel Johnson: But grant, the virtues of a temp'rate primeBless with an age exempt from scorn or
Try as we will, we cannot escape the making of mistakes. But fortunately, the ever humbling cycle of growing strong roots comes from eating what grows from our own shit, from digesting and processing our own humanity. Like the buffalo, we are nourished by what sprouts from our own broken trail. What we trample and leave behind fertilizes what will feed us. No one is exempt.Mark Nepo Exempt Sayings By Mark Nepo: Try as we will, we cannot escape the making of mistakes. But fortunately, the ever
Physicians today, as human beings, are not exempt from the perverse economic pressures created by fee-for-service regimes to see more patients for shorter appointments and order more tests and procedures. If the incentives were changed to pay to foster better health outcomes, I am convinced physician behavior would change over time.Mitch Kapor Exempt Sayings By Mitch Kapor: Physicians today, as human beings, are not exempt from the perverse economic pressures created by
It is no wonder you are tempted; on the contrary, it would be something new if you were not, because man's life is nothing but temptation, and no one is exempt from it, especially those who have given themselves to God; his own Son even passed through this trial. But if it is necessary for everyone, it is also a source of merit for those to whom God grants the grace of turning all things to good, as you do.Vincent De Paul Exempt Sayings By Vincent De Paul: It is no wonder you are tempted; on the contrary, it would be something new
Who can doubt that we exist only to love? Disguise it, in fact, as we will, we love without intermission ... We live not a moment exempt from its influence.Blaise Pascal Exempt Sayings By Blaise Pascal: Who can doubt that we exist only to love? Disguise it, in fact, as we
Labor, therefore, is a duty from which no man living is exempt, without forfeiting his right to his daily bread.Thomas F. Wilson Exempt Sayings By Thomas F. Wilson: Labor, therefore, is a duty from which no man living is exempt, without forfeiting his
Perhaps there has been, at some point in history, some great power whose elevation was exempt from the violent exploitation of other human bodies. If there has been, I have yet to discover it. But this banality of violence can never excuse America, because America makes no claim to the banal. America believes itself exceptional, the greatest and noblest nation ever to exist, a lone champion standing between the white city of democracy and the terrorists, despots, barbarians, and other enemies of civilization. One cannot, at once, claim to be superhuman and then plead mortal error. I propose to take our countrymen's claims of American exceptionalism seriously, which is to say I propose subjecting our country to an exceptional moral standard. This is difficult because there exists, all around us, an apparatus urging us to accept American innocence at face value and not to inquire too much.Ta-Nehisi Coates Exempt Sayings By Ta-Nehisi Coates: Perhaps there has been, at some point in history, some great power whose elevation was
This is considered almost holy work by farmers and ranchers. Kill off everything you can't eat. Kill off anything that eats what you eat. Kill off anything that doesn't feed what you eat."
"It IS holy work, in Taker culture. The more competitors you destroy, the more humans you can bring into the world, and that makes it just about the holiest work there is. Once you exempt yourself from the law of limited competition, everything in the world except your food and the food of your food becomes an enemy to be exterminated.
Daniel Quinn Exempt Sayings By Daniel Quinn: This is considered almost holy work by farmers and ranchers. Kill off everything you can't
As the hours, the days, the weeks, the seasons slip by, you detach yourself from everything. You discover, with something that sometimes almost resembles exhilaration, that you are free. That nothing is weighing you down, nothing pleases or displeases you. You find, in this life exempt from wear and tear and with no thrill in it other than these suspended moments, in almost perfect happiness, fascinating, occasionally swollen by new emotions. You are living in a blessed parenthesis, in a vacuum full of promise, and from which you expect nothing. You are invisible, limpid, transparent. You no longer exist. Across the passing hours, the succession of days, the procession of the seasons, the flow of time, you survive without joy and without sadness. Without a future and without a past. Just like that: simply, self evidently, like a drop of water forming on a drinking tap on a landing.Georges Perec Exempt Sayings By Georges Perec: As the hours, the days, the weeks, the seasons slip by, you detach yourself from
He knew himself a villain - but he deem'd
The rest no better than the thing he seem'd;
And scorn'd the best as hypocrites who hid
Those deeds the bolder spirit plainly did.
He knew himself detested, but he knew
The hearts that loath'd him, crouch'd and dreaded too.
Lone, wild, and strange, he stood alike exempt
From all affection and from all contempt
George Gordon Byron Exempt Sayings By George Gordon Byron: He knew himself a villain - but he deem'dThe rest no better than the thing
And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything.William Shakespeare Exempt Sayings By William Shakespeare: And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the

Jesus came into the world to save us from our sins, and our political sins are not exempt from this salvation. Why would our political sins (which frequently have been among our foulest sins) be excluded? JesusDouglas Wilson Exempt Sayings By Douglas Wilson: Jesus came into the world to save us from our sins, and our political sins
Gallantly, ceaselessly, quietly, man must fight for inner liberty" to remain independent of the enslavement of the material world. "Inner liberty depends upon being exempt from domination of things as well as from domination of people. There are many who have acquired a high degree of political and social liberty, but only very few are not enslaved to things. This is our constant problem - how to live with people and remain free, how to live with things and remain independent.Abraham Joshua Heschel Exempt Sayings By Abraham Joshua Heschel: Gallantly, ceaselessly, quietly, man must fight for inner liberty" to remain independent of the enslavement
If Jesus had to suffer, why would we think ourselves exempt? After all, as He explained, "a disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master" (Matthew 10:24).David Jeremiah Exempt Sayings By David Jeremiah: If Jesus had to suffer, why would we think ourselves exempt? After all, as He
Happily ever after does not mean they don't experience exasperation with each other, or are somehow exempt from life's hardships and misery. Living happily ever after is hard work, but you do it because you want to stay in love with the other person. Because your life without this one other, very special person would be something not full, but only half-aliveNadia Lee Exempt Sayings By Nadia Lee: Happily ever after does not mean they don't experience exasperation with each other, or are
Many people today think that the Tea Act - which led to the Boston Tea Party - was simply an increase in the taxes on tea paid by the American colonists. That's where the whole "Taxation Without Representation" meme came from.

Instead, the purpose of the Tea Act was to give the East India Company full and unlimited access to the American tea trade and to exempt the company from having to pay taxes to Britain on tea exported to the American colonies. It even gave the company a tax refund on millions of pounds of tea that it was unable to sell and holding in inventory.

In other words, the Tea Act was the largest corporate tax break in the history of the world.
Thom Hartmann Exempt Sayings By Thom Hartmann: Many people today think that the Tea Act - which led to the Boston Tea
I find it awfully difficult to determine if the habit of talking about oneself at length runs contrary to the basic rules of propriety, or if instead the man exempt from this vice is rare.Giacomo Leopardi Exempt Sayings By Giacomo Leopardi: I find it awfully difficult to determine if the habit of talking about oneself at
Practical men who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any intellectual influence, are usually the slaves of some defunct economist. Madmen in authority, who hear voices in the air, are distilling their frenzy from some academic scribbler of a few years backJohn Maynard Keynes Exempt Sayings By John Maynard Keynes: Practical men who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any intellectual influence, are usually
Residents tended to consider it a God-given right to gossip and nose into people's business, and no one was exempt.

Leaders dramatically influence the culture of their organizations through their own work habits. Being a leader does not mean one has 'made it' and is now exempt from hard work. Rather, leaders should set the pace for others. Few things discourage employees and volunteers any more than lazy leaders. Leaders should not ask their people to undertake tasks they are unwilling to perform themselves.Henry T. Blackaby Exempt Sayings By Henry T. Blackaby: Leaders dramatically influence the culture of their organizations through their own work habits. Being a
One never finds anything perfectly pure and ... exempt from danger.Niccolo Machiavelli Exempt Sayings By Niccolo Machiavelli: One never finds anything perfectly pure and ... exempt from danger.
The divorce between Church and State ought to be absolute. It ought to be so absolute that no Church property anywhere, in any state or in the nation, should be exempt from equal taxation; for if you exempt the property of any church organization, to that extent you impose a tax upon the whole community.James A. Garfield Exempt Sayings By James A. Garfield: The divorce between Church and State ought to be absolute. It ought to be so
A British journalist, Sydney Brooks, writing in the North American Review, gauged America to be just as isolationist as ever. And why not, he asked? "The United States is remote, unconquerable, huge, without hostile neighbors or any neighbors at all of anything like her own strength, and lives exempt in an almost unvexed tranquility from the contentions and animosities and the ceaseless pressure and counter-pressure that distract the close-packed older world." While easy in concept, neutrality inErik Larson Exempt Sayings By Erik Larson: A British journalist, Sydney Brooks, writing in the North American Review, gauged America to be
Sometimes, some of us in some things we do know better. When we know better, I think it's imperative that we do better. Otherwise we're perpetuating myths that have for centuries done us no good. Men and women alike. No one is exempt from being called into consciousness.Jill Alexander Essbaum Exempt Sayings By Jill Alexander Essbaum: Sometimes, some of us in some things we do know better. When we know better,

world; you would probably stop bathing and wearing clothes.
The advice to 'be yourself' is obviously nonsense. But our
brains accept this tripe as wisdom because it is more comfortable
to believe we have a strategy for life than to believe
we have no idea how to behave.

In demonstrating this, the Buddha was making an important example for the ages. For almost no one is exempt from trauma. While some people have it in a much more pronounced way than others, the unpredictable and unstable nature of things makes life inherently traumatic. What the Buddha revealed through his dreams was that, true as this may be, the mind, by its very nature, is capable of holding trauma much the way a mother naturally relates to a baby. One does not have to be helpless and fearful, nor does one have to be hostile and self-referential. The mind knows intuitively how to find a middle path. Its implicit relational capacity is hardwired.Mark Epstein Exempt Sayings By Mark Epstein: In demonstrating this, the Buddha was making an important example for the ages. For almost
I want completing the single market to be our driving mission. I want us to be at the forefront of transformative trade deals with the US, Japan and India as part of the drive towards global free trade. And I want us to be pushing to exempt Europe's smallest entrepreneurial companies from more EU directives.David Cameron Exempt Sayings By David Cameron: I want completing the single market to be our driving mission.

Benedict Arnold was a war hero, wounded in battle
before he turned against his country. Hitler was likewise a decorated and wounded veteran of the First World War. Being a war hero is not a lifetime ... exempt[ion] ... from responsibility for what you do thereafter.

The Christ speaks: Wherever you are, whatever you do, you will be restless until you turn to God. Does it upset you when a day doesn't go according to your plan? Is there anyone who has everything for which one could wish? No, not one. Kings and popes are not exempt. Disappointment affects everyone. Doldrums corner even the most devout unless they are among the few who are able to endure hardship willingly without complaining.Thomas A Kempis Exempt Sayings By Thomas A Kempis: The Christ speaks: Wherever you are, whatever you do, you will be restless until you
No one must say that they cannot be close to the poor because their own lifestyle demands more attention to other areas. This is an excuse commonly heard in academic, business or professional, and even ecclesial circles. While it is quite true that the essential vocation and mission of the lay faithful is to strive that earthly realities and all human activity may be transformed by the Gospel, none of us can think we are exempt from concern for the poor and for social justicePope Francis Exempt Sayings By Pope Francis: No one must say that they cannot be close to the poor because their own

Legislators cannot invent too many devices for subdividing property ... Another means of silently lessening the inequality of property is to exempt all from taxation below a certain point, and to tax the higher portions or property in geometrical progression as they rise. Whenever there are in any country uncultivated lands and unemployed poor, it is clear that the laws of property have been so far extended as to violate natural right.Thomas Jefferson Exempt Sayings By Thomas Jefferson: Legislators cannot invent too many devices for subdividing property ... Another means of silently lessening
The likelihood that your acts of resistance cannot stop the injustice does not exempt you from acting in what you sincerely and reflectively hold to be the best interests of your community.Susan Sontag Exempt Sayings By Susan Sontag: The likelihood that your acts of resistance cannot stop the injustice does not exempt you
Much has already been learned about the arrogance of the IRS from the House investigations of the agency's targeting of conservatives. The revelations emerged despite strenuous efforts by Democrats in Washington and by the IRS itself to block inquiries and deny the existence of political targeting - targeting that the former head of the IRS Exempt Organizations Unit, Lois Lerner, eventually acknowledged and apologized for in May 2013.Cleta Mitchell Exempt Sayings By Cleta Mitchell: Much has already been learned about the arrogance of the IRS from the House investigations
When the world asks if there is any hope, we can say absolutely! No one is exempt from tragedy or disappointment- God himself was not exempt. Jesus offered no immunity, no way out of the unfairness, but rather a way through it to the other side.Philip Yancey Exempt Sayings By Philip Yancey: When the world asks if there is any hope, we can say absolutely!

The world is a perfect design. If we can see it. If we can see ourselves and our surroundings. A vast sky held up by pillars. A carpet of earth that gives us all the food and fruit and nourishment we need to live. Animals of every species. Some that we can ride, some that we can eat, some that can help us in our work. They have specific duties.You can't tie a lion to a cart.
They have all been placed here as means for us to see our inner natures. Just because we are dressed like human beings doesn't exempt us from having animal tendencies. The mouse in us that steals a little bit from here and there. The vain peacock that grooms himself all the time. The sly fox. The stubborn donkey that closes his ear to the name of Allah. The scorpion that stings. These are all in us.

It is by the activity of our passions, that our reason improves: we covet knowledge merely because we covet enjoyment, and it is impossible to conceive why a man exempt from fears and desires should take the trouble to reason.Jean-Jacques Rousseau Exempt Sayings By Jean-Jacques Rousseau: It is by the activity of our passions, that our reason improves: we covet knowledge
My varied listening palette is all-inclusive of all walks of life. No one individual is exempt from the human experience, so it is that intangible that is a universal truth.

To have a museum chronicling the great crime that was African slavery in the United States of America would be to acknowledge that the evil was here. Americans prefer to picture the evil that was there, and from which the United States-a unique nation, one without any certifiably wicked leaders throughout its entire history-is exempt. That this country, like every other country, has its tragic past does not sit well with the founding, and still all-powerful belief in American exceptionalism.Susan Sontag Exempt Sayings By Susan Sontag: To have a museum chronicling the great crime that was African slavery in the United
