Forgiveness always comes at a cost to the one granting the forgiveness. To not retaliate is to absorb the cost.Timothy Keller Granting Sayings By Timothy Keller: Forgiveness always comes at a cost to the one granting the forgiveness. To not retaliate
Granting that we are always in the presence of God, yet it seems to me that those who pray are in His presence in a very different sense; for they, as it were, see that He is looking upon them, while others may go for days on end without even once recollecting that God sees them.Teresa Of Avila Granting Sayings By Teresa Of Avila: Granting that we are always in the presence of God, yet it seems to me
In 1770, a British law was proposed to Parliament granting grounds for annulment if a bride used cosmetics prior to her wedding day.
- Marjorie Dorfman, The History of Make-up
Julie Klassen Granting Sayings By Julie Klassen: In 1770, a British law was proposed to Parliament granting grounds for annulment if a
I wanted ... " I said.
"I know," he said. "I know. Apparently the world is not a wish-granting factory." That made me smile a little.
John Green Granting Sayings By John Green: I wanted ... " I said."I know," he said. "I know. Apparently the world is
Because evangelicals view their primary task as evangelism and discipleship,1 they tend to avoid issues that hinder these activities. Thus, they are generally not counter-cultural. With some significant exceptions, they avoid "rocking the boat," and live within the confines of the larger culture. At times they have been able to call for and realize social change, but most typically their influence has been limited to alterations at the margins. So, despite having the subcultural tools to call for radical changes in race relations, they most consistently call for changes in persons that leave the dominant social structures, institutions, and culture intact. This avoidance of boat-rocking unwittingly leads to granting power to larger economic and social forces. It also means that evangelicals' views to a considerable extent conform to the socioeconomic conditions of their time.Christian Smith Granting Sayings By Christian Smith: Because evangelicals view their primary task as evangelism and discipleship,1 they tend to avoid issues
Now at Iconium a they entered together into the Jewish synagogue and spoke in such a way that a great number of both Jews and Greeks believed. 2 b But the c unbelieving Jews stirred up the Gentiles and poisoned their minds against d the brothers. [1] 3So they remained for a long time, speaking boldly for e the Lord, who bore witness to f the word of his grace, g granting signs and wonders to be done by their hands. 4But the people of the city h were divided; i some sided with the Jews and some with the apostles.Anonymous Granting Sayings By Anonymous: Now at Iconium a they entered together into the Jewish synagogue and spoke in such
People rely on intelligence to solve problems, and they are naturally baffled when comprehension proves impotent to effect emotional change. To the neocortical brain, rich in the power of abstractions, understanding makes all the difference, but it doesn't count for much in the neural systems that evolved before understanding existed. Ideas bounce like so many peas off the sturdy incomprehension of the limbic and reptilian brains. The dogged implicitness of emotional knowledge, its relentless unreasoning force, prevents logic from granting salvation just as it precludes self-help books from helping. The sheer volume and variety of self-help paraphernalia testify at once to the vastness of the appetite they address and their inability to satisfy it. (118)Thomas Lewis Granting Sayings By Thomas Lewis: People rely on intelligence to solve problems, and they are naturally baffled when comprehension proves
I think that it is infinitely wiser to accept the fact that we're afraid, for in accepting our fear we are in no way granting it the power to crush us. Rather we are finally empowering ourselves sufficiently so that we can crush it.Craig D. Lounsbrough Granting Sayings By Craig D. Lounsbrough: I think that it is infinitely wiser to accept the fact that we're afraid, for
The dogged implicitness of emotional knowledge, its relentless unreasoning force, prevents logic from granting salvation just as it precludes self-help books from helping. The sheer volume and variety of helf-help paraphernalia testify at once to the vastness of the appetite they address and their inability to satisfy it.Thomas Lewis Granting Sayings By Thomas Lewis: The dogged implicitness of emotional knowledge, its relentless unreasoning force, prevents logic from granting salvation
Universities have failed in their function of the pursuit of academic excellence by having dumbed down classes and granting degrees to students who are just barely literate and computationally incompetent.Walter E. Williams Granting Sayings By Walter E. Williams: Universities have failed in their function of the pursuit of academic excellence by having dumbed
Today what we are doing is modernizing the financial services industry, tearing down those antiquated laws and granting banks significant new authority.William J. Clinton Granting Sayings By William J. Clinton: Today what we are doing is modernizing the financial services industry, tearing down those antiquated
Some religions, such as Catholicism, fully endorsed slavery, as Pope Nicholas V made clear when, in 1452, he issued the radically proslavery document Dum Diversas. This was a papal bull granting Catholic countries such as Spain and Portugal "full and free permission to invade, search out, capture, and subjugate the Saracens and pagans and any other unbelievers and enemies of Christ wherever they may be, as well as their kingdoms, duchies, counties, principalities, and other property ... and to reduce their persons into perpetual slavery."10 These last few words - to reduce their persons into perpetual slavery - sound not just sinister to us, but also psychotic. They make perfect sense, however, in a Christian context, given that the Bible is itself a heedlessly proslavery tome.Michael Shermer Granting Sayings By Michael Shermer: Some religions, such as Catholicism, fully endorsed slavery, as Pope Nicholas V made clear when,
I call for effort, courage, sacrifice, devotion. Granting the love of freedom, all of these are possible. And the love of freedom is still fierce and steady in the nation today. June 10, 1940Franklin D. Roosevelt Granting Sayings By Franklin D. Roosevelt: I call for effort, courage, sacrifice, devotion. Granting the love of freedom, all of these

Perhaps if I'd arrived donned in a pair of trousers, with my hair in a tangled mess - a style you apparently prefer - you'd have shown me the courtesy of granting an interview before sending me away.Karen Witemeyer Granting Sayings By Karen Witemeyer: Perhaps if I'd arrived donned in a pair of trousers, with my hair in a
When you take comprehensive, then we're dealing with certain issues like full citizenship ... And whatever else we disagree on, I think we would agree on that that's a more toxic and contentious issue, granting full amnesty.Herbert Spencer Granting Sayings By Herbert Spencer: When you take comprehensive, then we're dealing with certain issues like full citizenship ... And
Press on! If Fortune play thee false To-day, tomorrow she'll be true; Whom now she sinks she now exalts, Taking old gifts and granting new, The wisdom of the present hour Makes up the follies past and gone; To weakness, strength succeeds, and power From frailty springs! Press on, press on!Benjamin Granting Sayings By Benjamin: Press on! If Fortune play thee false To-day, tomorrow she'll be true; Whom now she
There is only one kind of freedom and that's individual liberty. Our lives come from our creator and our liberty comes from our creator. It has nothing to do with government granting it.Ron Paul Granting Sayings By Ron Paul: There is only one kind of freedom and that's individual liberty. Our lives come from
The formal granting of independence created a more Manichean system of dependency and exploitation, since for those who practice it, it means power without responsibility and for those who suffer from it, it means exploitation without redress. In the days of old-fashioned colonialism, the imperial power had at least to explain and justify at home the actions it was taking abroad. In the colony those who served the ruling imperial power could at least look to its protection against any violent move by their opponents. With neocolonialism neither is the case.Kwame Granting Sayings By Kwame: The formal granting of independence created a more Manichean system of dependency and exploitation, since
When someone tells you a piece of their life, they're giving you a gift, not granting you your due.Patrick Rothfuss Granting Sayings By Patrick Rothfuss: When someone tells you a piece of their life, they're giving you a gift, not
Nothing makes us better understand what trifling things Providence thinks He bestows on men in granting them wealth, money, dignities, and other advantages, than the manner in which they are distributed and the kind of men who have the largest share.Jean De La Bruyere Granting Sayings By Jean De La Bruyere: Nothing makes us better understand what trifling things Providence thinks He bestows on men in

In this age of innovation perhaps no experiment will have an influence more important on the character and happiness of our society than the granting to females the advantages of a systematic and thorough education.Sarah Josepha Hale Granting Sayings By Sarah Josepha Hale: In this age of innovation perhaps no experiment will have an influence more important on
The world," he said, "is not a wish-granting factory.John Green Granting Sayings By John Green: The world," he said, "is not a wish-granting factory.
But these men had become object lessons for me, men I might love but never emulate, white men and brown men whose fates didn't speak to my own. It was into my father's image, the black man, son of Africa, that I'd packed all the attributes I sought in myself, the attributes of Martin and Malcolm, DuBois and Mandela. And if later I saw that the black men I knew - Frank or Ray or Will or Rafiq - fell short of such lofty standards; if I had learned to respect these men for the struggles they went through, recognizing them as my own - my father's voice had nevertheless remained untainted, inspiring, rebuking, granting or withholding approval.Barack Obama Granting Sayings By Barack Obama: But these men had become object lessons for me, men I might love but never
Lord thank you for granting us right words to speak and write at the right time.Lailah Gifty Akita Granting Sayings By Lailah Gifty Akita: Lord thank you for granting us right words to speak and write at the right
We can't gather the intelligence we need to foil future attacks, if we are blindly granting terrorists the right to remain silent. But for some reason, we've already done that - with the terrorist who tried to bring down Flight 253.Peter T. King Granting Sayings By Peter T. King: We can't gather the intelligence we need to foil future attacks, if we are blindly
My Lasher is powerful beyond your
dreams of a daimon, and he has learnt much.'
'Learned,' I repeated in amazement. 'How learned, Deborah, for he is merely a spirit, and they are
forever foolish and therein lies the danger, that in granting our wishes they do not understand the
complexity of them, and thereby prove our undoing. There are a thousand tales that prove it. Has this not
happened? How so do you say learned?
Anne Rice Granting Sayings By Anne Rice: My Lasher is powerful beyond yourdreams of a daimon, and he has learnt much.''Learned,' I
From the Soviet gulag to the Nazi concentration camps and the killing fields of Cambodia, history teaches that granting the state legal authority to kill innocent individuals has dreadful consequences.Pete Du Pont Granting Sayings By Pete Du Pont: From the Soviet gulag to the Nazi concentration camps and the killing fields of Cambodia,

I write with my spine, create through my heart and defiant mind. Happy or not happy, it's real, it's living like blood, pen and paper. Hearts that wake up racing, wanting. Trading fear in for the hurt, the hard, the challenge, the change, the pain, the stuff that makes you grow bigger, stronger, better. Granting you the crazy, the genius, the ability, the power to change the world.Coco J. Ginger Granting Sayings By Coco J. Ginger: I write with my spine, create through my heart and defiant mind. Happy or not
When the number of children goes over one, God becomes miserly in granting intelligence; he takes it from the living child and gives it to the child to be born.Mehmet Murat Ildan Granting Sayings By Mehmet Murat Ildan: When the number of children goes over one, God becomes miserly in granting intelligence; he

But, no matter how big or small dictators are, they all accept 100 percent the principle that granting government authority to manipulate our lives and control our property is legitimate and morally acceptable.Ron Paul Granting Sayings By Ron Paul: But, no matter how big or small dictators are, they all accept 100 percent the
We will discover through our own experience that this precious mind of love is the real wish-granting jewel, because it fulfills the pure wishes of both ourself and all living beings.Kelsang Gyatso Granting Sayings By Kelsang Gyatso: We will discover through our own experience that this precious mind of love is the

Because -' she looked up at Bill and gave him a smile that lit up her face, granting him a sudden flash of her true beauty - 'love never die, Mister Bill. It never die.Lucinda Riley Granting Sayings By Lucinda Riley: Because -' she looked up at Bill and gave him a smile that lit up
We should abolish 'work.' By that I mean abolishing the distinction between work and leisure, one of the greatest mistakes of the last century, one that enables employers to keep workers in lousy jobs by granting them some leisure time.Theodore Zeldin Granting Sayings By Theodore Zeldin: We should abolish 'work.' By that I mean abolishing the distinction between work and leisure,
She came unannounced, certain of finding him there and alone. In his room, there was no necessity to spare, lie, agree and erase herself out of being. Here she was free to resist, to see her resistance welcomed by an adversary too strong to fear a contest, strong enough to need it; she found a will granting her the recognition of her own entity, untouched and not to be touched except in clean battle, to win or to be defeated, but to be preserved in victory or defeat, not ground into the meaningless pulp of the impersonal.Ayn Rand Granting Sayings By Ayn Rand: She came unannounced, certain of finding him there and alone. In his room, there was
These others
the overwhelming majority of Iraq's people
have repeatedly given every indication of valuing their newfound freedom: voting in two elections at the risk of their lives, preparing for a third, writing and ratifying a constitution granting more freedoms than exist in any country in the entire Arab Middle East. The secret is out, There is something decent unfolding in Iraq. It's unfolding in the shadow of a terrible insurgency, but a society is finding its way to constitutional politics.
Fouad Ajami Granting Sayings By Fouad Ajami: These others the overwhelming majority of Iraq's people have repeatedly given every indication of valuing
Taking legislative authority away from the federal government doesn't necessarily mean freer individuals. It might just mean granting vastly more authority to the states
which already have far broader police powers than most of us would care to admit.
Dahlia Lithwick Granting Sayings By Dahlia Lithwick: Taking legislative authority away from the federal government doesn't necessarily mean freer individuals. It might
Prioritize life over profit by rejecting GNP in favor of indicators that measure biodiversity, community coherence, personal well-being, and other life-affirming criteria; radically reducing public spending on "defense"; granting legal rights to ecosystems and nonhuman species; rewriting educational curricula to meet community and environmental needs rather than the needs of industry. ========== Revolution (Russell Brand)Anonymous Granting Sayings By Anonymous: Prioritize life over profit by rejecting GNP in favor of indicators that measure biodiversity, community
The duty of government is to leave commerce to its own capital and credit as well as all other branches of business, protecting all in their legal pursuits, granting exclusive privileges to none.Andrew Jackson Granting Sayings By Andrew Jackson: The duty of government is to leave commerce to its own capital and credit as
The prevailing idea seems to be, that I come to God and ask Him for something that I want, and that I expect Him to give me that which I have asked. But this is a most dishonouring and degrading conception. The popular belief reduces God to a servant, our servant: doing our bidding, performing our pleasure, granting our desires. No, prayer is a coming to God, telling Him my need, committing my way unto the Lord, and leaving Him to deal with it as seemeth Him best.Arthur W. Pink Granting Sayings By Arthur W. Pink: The prevailing idea seems to be, that I come to God and ask Him for
I think the Republican budget priorities are messed up. I salute for the way they're attacking some of the entitlement programs, but they are taking huge cuts, by pretending they're just block-granting it to the states, out of Medicaid, from the least fortunate.David Brooks Granting Sayings By David Brooks: I think the Republican budget priorities are messed up. I salute for the way they're
If a person claims that he really loves someone, evidence is asked from him. And that evidence is the giving away of possessions, the granting of favors. Just as when Mevlana claimed that he loved me, when I came he granted me thousands of favors and protected me. I regard these all as a grace from God.Shams Tabrizi Granting Sayings By Shams Tabrizi: If a person claims that he really loves someone, evidence is asked from him. And
The mishandling of the would-be airplane bomber Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab's visa is only the latest piece of evidence that the granting of visas should be taken away from the State Department. For the granting of visas - especially today, when terrorism is such a complex threat - is far closer to being a law-enforcement function.Elliott Abrams Granting Sayings By Elliott Abrams: The mishandling of the would-be airplane bomber Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab's visa is only the
You cannot resist something to which you grant no reality. The act of resisting a thing is the act of granting it life. When you resist an energy, you place it there. The more you resist, the more you make it real-whatever it is you are resisting." "Every human being is as special as every other human being who has ever lived, lives now, or every will live. You are all meesengers. Every one of you. You are carrying a message to life about life every day. Every hour. Every moment.Neale Donald Walsch Granting Sayings By Neale Donald Walsch: You cannot resist something to which you grant no reality. The act of resisting a
Obama's immigration legacy will be the juxtaposition of his serial insistence that he was not a king or an emperor, and could not contravene the Constitution by granting a blanket amnesty, with his efforts to do just that when it was no longer politically inexpedient. I don't think a president has ever quite so habitually warned the country of the dangers that would soon emanate from himself.Victor Davis Hanson Granting Sayings By Victor Davis Hanson: Obama's immigration legacy will be the juxtaposition of his serial insistence that he was not
Oh shit, you had to be bloody careful when you invoked God; He could amuse Himself by granting what you'd prayed for ...Ariana Franklin Granting Sayings By Ariana Franklin: Oh shit, you had to be bloody careful when you invoked God; He could amuse
The true danger of romanticism is that the principles through which it rules itself are of such nature that everybody can invoke them to grant themselves the category of artist. Taking the anxiety of an unreachable happiness, the angst of unrealized dreams, the indifference towards action and life, as the defining criteria of genius or talent, immediately facilitates everyone who feels or has felt that same anxiety, suffers that same angst and is prey of that particular indifference, to feel themselves convinced that they themselves are an interesting individuality, and that Destiny, granting them that longing, suffering and dreams, implicitly bestowed on them intellectual greatness.Fernando Pessoa Granting Sayings By Fernando Pessoa: The true danger of romanticism is that the principles through which it rules itself are
Optimism is a tonic. Pessimism is poison. Admittedly, every businessman must be realistic. He must gather facts, analyze them candidly and strive to draw logical conclusions, whether favorable or unfavorable. He must not engage in self-delusion. He must not view everything through rose-colored glasses. Granting this, the incontestable truth is that America has been built up by optimists, not by pessimists, but by men possessing courage, confidence in the nation's destiny, by men willing to adventure to shoulder risks terrifying to the timid.B.C. Forbes Granting Sayings By B.C. Forbes: Optimism is a tonic. Pessimism is poison. Admittedly, every businessman must be realistic. He must
American television is a huge product that is exported around the world and what that means is that what our movies and films say about who women [are] has global ramifications. There is a burden and a responsibility when you are someone who is very aware of how far we've yet to travel in granting women equal rights and equal respect and you are creating cultural products. You have to be responsible and be aware of the message that you are sending out.Liz W. Garcia Granting Sayings By Liz W. Garcia: American television is a huge product that is exported around the world and what that
If love is to be defined as a genuine concern for the well-being of another person, then it must surely be deemed compatible with granting permission for an often harassed and rather browbeaten husband to step off the elevator on the eighteenth floor in order to enjoy ten minutes of rejuvenating cunnilingus with a near stranger.Alain De Botton Granting Sayings By Alain De Botton: If love is to be defined as a genuine concern for the well-being of another
What's the advantage of fear or the benefit of regret or the bonus of granting misery a foothold even if death is embracing you? My old abbot used to say, "Life is only precious if you wish it to be." I look at it like the last bite of a wonderful meal. Do you enjoy it, or does the knowledge that there is no more to follow make it so bitter that you would ruin the experience? - Myron on facing deathMichael J. Sullivan Granting Sayings By Michael J. Sullivan: What's the advantage of fear or the benefit of regret or the bonus of granting
The essential cultural discrimination is not between having and not having or haves and have-nots, but between the superfluous and the indispensable. Wisdom, it seems to me, is always poised upon the knowledge of minimums; it might be thought to be the art of minimums. Granting the frailty, and no doubt the impermanence, of modern technology as a human contrivance, the man who can keep a fire in a stove or on a hearth is not only more durable, but wiser, closer to the meaning of fire, than the man who can only work a thermostat.Wendell Berry Granting Sayings By Wendell Berry: The essential cultural discrimination is not between having and not having or haves and have-nots,
The so-called right to abortion has pitted mothers against their children and women against men. It has sown violence and discord at the heart of the most intimate human relationships. It has aggravated the derogation of the father's role in an increasingly fatherless society. It has portrayed the greatest of gifts
a child
as a competitor, an intrusion and an inconvenience. It has nominally accorded mothers unfettered dominion over the dependent lives of their physically dependent sons and daughters. And, in granting this unconscionable power, it has exposed many women to unjust and selfish demands from their husbands or other sexual partners.
Mother Teresa Granting Sayings By Mother Teresa: The so-called right to abortion has pitted mothers against their children and women against men.
Our life consists not in the pursuit of material success but in the quest for worthy spiritual growth. Our entire earthly existence is but a transitional stage in the movement toward something higher, and we must not stumble and fall, nor must we linger fruitlessly on one rung of the ladder. Material laws alone do not explain our life or give it direction. The laws of physics and physiology will never reveal the indisputable manner in which the Creator constantly, day in and day out, participates in the life of each of us, unfailingly granting us the energy of existence; when this assistance leaves us, we die. And in the life of our entire planet, the Divine Spirit surely moves with no less force: this we must grasp in our dark and terrible hour.Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn Granting Sayings By Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn: Our life consists not in the pursuit of material success but in the quest for
For granting we have sinned, and that the offence
Of man is made against Omnipotence,
Some price that bears proportion must be paid,
And infinite with infinite be weighed.

A portion of the electorate will always levitate toward the scratch and sniff candidate, granting them superficial appeasement without any substance.T. Rafael Cimino Granting Sayings By T. Rafael Cimino: A portion of the electorate will always levitate toward the scratch and sniff candidate, granting
I think we both like Crazy Anna a little more than regular Anna. It's like magic - while I was trying on the bathing suit last month, it rubbed against my butt and unleashed the Absolute Best Summer Ever Bikini Genie, granting all my wishes.Sarah Ockler Granting Sayings By Sarah Ockler: I think we both like Crazy Anna a little more than regular Anna. It's like
Obamacare is a program designed to shift control of the health care industry from the private sector to the public sector, from doctors, hospitals, and insurance companies to the federal government. The program was sold by Obama feigning outrage over insurance companies refusing to grant insurance to people with "preexisting conditions." But this is the same as an insurance company not granting fire insurance to a guy whose house has already burned down. The whole point of insurance is to share the risk before the catastrophe occurs, not to have a catastrophe and then get other people to pay for your losses.Dinesh D'Souza Granting Sayings By Dinesh D'Souza: Obamacare is a program designed to shift control of the health care industry from the
By the second week of November 1990, a new character had begun to spring forth in Kurt's journal writings, and this figure would soon make its way into almost every image, song, or story. He intentionally misspelled its name, and in doing so he was granting it a life of its own. Oddly, he gave it a female persona, but since it became his great love that Fall - and even made him throw up, just like Tobi - there was a fairness in this gender choice. He called it 'heroine'.Charles R. Cross Granting Sayings By Charles R. Cross: By the second week of November 1990, a new character had begun to spring forth
Oh, what an unbearable yoke is free will! What a vicious curse of the gods, granting self-determination to creatures incapable of guiding themselves! What good parent would free a child among tigers?J. Robert King Granting Sayings By J. Robert King: Oh, what an unbearable yoke is free will! What a vicious curse of the gods,
We could never predict what moment in the service would trigger a full-blown crisis of faith. Once, it was the kids' choir singing "Nothing but the Blood" during special music.
"Surely I'm not the only one who thinks it's creepy to hear all those little voices singing about getting washed in the flow of someone's blood," I muttered as Dan and I escaped out the double doors.
Another time it was a prayer about God granting our troops victory over their enemies as they served him in Iraq.
"Don't you think the Iraqis are just as convinced God is on their side?" I whispered.
Sometimes it was just the way people chatted in the fellowship hall about "those liberals," as if feminists or Democrats or Methodists couldn't possibly be in their midst.
Often it was the assumption that women were unfit to speak from the pulpit or pass the collection plate on Sunday mornings, but were welcome to serve the men their key lime pie at the church picnic.
Rachel Held Evans Granting Sayings By Rachel Held Evans: We could never predict what moment in the service would trigger a full-blown crisis of
How fickle it is, memory - preferring some days to others, granting first a blue sky, offering next the sound of laughter, swelling our remembrances until a largeness seeps into the grain of things and memory itself becomes billowed and flapping.Sonja Livingston Granting Sayings By Sonja Livingston: How fickle it is, memory - preferring some days to others, granting first a blue
We must be wary of granting too much power to natural selection by viewing all basic capacities of our brain as direct adaptations.Stephen Jay Gould Granting Sayings By Stephen Jay Gould: We must be wary of granting too much power to natural selection by viewing all
The methods and tools of science perennially breach barriers, granting me confidence that our epic march of insight into the operations of nature will continue without end.Neil DeGrasse Tyson Granting Sayings By Neil DeGrasse Tyson: The methods and tools of science perennially breach barriers, granting me confidence that our epic
I have had several offers to make the book into a film. I don't know if the message could be accurately transmitted, and so I have been somewhat hesitant in granting film rights.Frederick Lenz Granting Sayings By Frederick Lenz: I have had several offers to make the book into a film. I don't know
In recognition of his service, Rome named Herod "King of the Jews", granting him a kingdom that would ultimately grow larger than that of King SolomonReza Aslan Granting Sayings By Reza Aslan: In recognition of his service, Rome named Herod "King of the Jews", granting him a
Our nation sought to rehabilitate and affirm the dignity and personhood of those who for so long had been silenced, had been turned into anonymous, marginalized ones. Now they would be able to tell their stories, they would remember, and in remembering would be acknowledged to be persons with an inalienable personhood. Our country's negotiators rejected the two extremes and opted for a "third way," a compromise between the extreme of Nuremberg trials and blanket amnesty or national amnesia. And that third way was granting amnesty to individuals in exchange for a full disclosure relating to the crime for which amnesty was being sought. It was the carrot of possible freedom in exchange for truth and the stick was, for those already in jail, the prospect of lengthy prison sentences and, for those still free, the probability of arrest and prosecution and imprisonment. The option South Africa chose raisesDesmond Tutu Granting Sayings By Desmond Tutu: Our nation sought to rehabilitate and affirm the dignity and personhood of those who for
Even granting that we [humans] face greater harm than laboratory animals presently endure if ... research on these animals is stopped, the animal rights view will not be satisfied with anything less than total abolition.Tom Regan Granting Sayings By Tom Regan: Even granting that we [humans] face greater harm than laboratory animals presently endure if ...
Why must we cling to those who walk away instead of granting freedom? We must give the same liberty God gives to prodigals-an ability to let them go-or we'll be perennially bound to others for our happiness and effective service.Mary E. DeMuth Granting Sayings By Mary E. DeMuth: Why must we cling to those who walk away instead of granting freedom? We must
When King asked Adam to make three wishes, he wished that whatever was granting the wishes would not exist.Anonymous Granting Sayings By Anonymous: When King asked Adam to make three wishes, he wished that whatever was granting the
The race of mankind would perish did they cease to aid each other. We cannot exist without mutual help. All therefore that need aid have a right to ask it from their fellow-men; and no one who has the power of granting can refuse it without guilt.Walter Scott Granting Sayings By Walter Scott: The race of mankind would perish did they cease to aid each other. We cannot
I was not the equal of my cousins in athletic ability or good looks, but I'd like to think God evened the score by granting me a modicum of common sense, which sometimes seems to be sadly missing in most descendants of Walter Kaminski, who have shown a tendency to live for the moment and think with their peckers.Robin Yocum Granting Sayings By Robin Yocum: I was not the equal of my cousins in athletic ability or good looks, but
It is ironical that, in the very field in which Science has claimed superiority to Theology, for example - in the abandoning of dogma and the granting of absolute freedom to criticism - the positions are now reversed.
Science will not tolerate criticism of special relativity, while Theology talks freely about the death of God, religionless Christianity, and so on.
Herbert Dingle Granting Sayings By Herbert Dingle: It is ironical that, in the very field in which Science has claimed superiority to
Indeed, Urcheon of Erlenwald made a strange request of King Roegner, a strange reward to demand when the king offered him his wish. But let us not pretend we've never heard of such requests, of the Law of Surprise, as old as humanity itself. Of the price a man who saves another can demand, of the granting of a seemingly impossible wish. 'You will give me the first thing that comes to greet you.Andrzej Sapkowski Granting Sayings By Andrzej Sapkowski: Indeed, Urcheon of Erlenwald made a strange request of King Roegner, a strange reward to
The federal government's role is to establish a process whereby industry can pitch a project, and Canadians can be reassured that this project is worth the risk. That's at the heart of governments granting permits and communities granting permission. People understand we do need economic growth. We do need natural resource projects.Justin Trudeau Granting Sayings By Justin Trudeau: The federal government's role is to establish a process whereby industry can pitch a project,
One should never tell anyone anything or give information or pass on stories or make people remember beings who have never existed or trodden the earth or traversed the world or who, having done so, are now almost safe in uncertain, one-eyed oblivion. Telling is almost always done as a gift, even when the story contains and injects some poison, it is also a bond, a granting of trust, and rare is the trust or confidence that is not sooner or later betrayed, rare is the close bond that does not grow twisted or knotted and, in the end become so tangled that a razor or knife is needed to cut it.Javier Marias Granting Sayings By Javier Marias: One should never tell anyone anything or give information or pass on stories or make

That tradition is the way our culture gets made. As I explain in the pages that follow, we come from a tradition of "free culture" - not "free" as in "free beer" (to borrow a phrase from the founder of the freesoftware movement[2] ), but "free" as in "free speech," "free markets," "free trade," "free enterprise," "free will," and "free elections." A free culture supports and protects creators and innovators. It does this directly by granting intellectual property rights. But it does so indirectly by limiting the reach of those rights, to guarantee that follow-on creators and innovators remain as free as possible from the control of the past. A free culture is not a culture without property, just as a free market is not a market in which everything is free. The opposite of a free culture is a "permission culture" - a culture in which creators get to create only with the permission of the powerful, or of creators from the past.Lawrence Lessig Granting Sayings By Lawrence Lessig: That tradition is the way our culture gets made. As I explain in the pages
What the leave left me on deposit after the grace period expired: a crazy sad elation, as sad as it was exciting. A wretched happiness, yet another affect I've never suspected I could feel, a tearful happiness, lightened, raked by claws, to discover that death lets pass, that it may sheathe its claws, admit exceptions. As if one could do everything one imagines doing, all of us living dead dying life death and other beings subject to laws so harsh but open to interpretation, natural phenomena. An extra-mortal joy that doesn't take its eyes off death. No denials. I don't deny the sentence, its execution, its terrible consequences, the solitude, the weakening, the ruination of beauties the carnage of skies, global chlorosis, anxiety, that demolish us, the butchery of living moments, the pulling out by the roots of the hearts of things and beings. But that day it was clear to me we had found: the answer. This was the Granting of Leave. It will suffice.Helene Cixous Granting Sayings By Helene Cixous: What the leave left me on deposit after the grace period expired: a crazy sad
However, for equity to create commitment rather than conflict, you must allocate it very carefully. Giving everyone equal shares is usually a mistake: every individual has different talents and responsibilities as well as different opportunity costs, so equal amounts will seem arbitrary and unfair from the start. On the other hand, granting different amounts up front is just as sure to seem unfair. Resentment at this stage can kill a company, but there's no ownership formula to perfectly avoid it.Peter Thiel Granting Sayings By Peter Thiel: However, for equity to create commitment rather than conflict, you must allocate it very carefully.
Real love - our love of God and our love of each other - must involve a choice. But with the granting of that choice comes the possibility that people would choose instead to hate.Lee Strobel Granting Sayings By Lee Strobel: Real love - our love of God and our love of each other - must

Like mathematics and music and cosmology and philosophy, poetry, too, can "infinitize" us, granting us what immortality there is to be had in this mortal life.
