I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides.Elie Wiesel Human Sides Sayings By Elie Wiesel: I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation.
People get smarter. The human brain has a potential for development. Some day it will grow big enough so that everybody will see and understand the truth, and then we won't act like a bunch of sheep, and then that wall separates the two sides of us will crumble, just like the wall of Jericho.Harry Bernstein Human Sides Sayings By Harry Bernstein: People get smarter. The human brain has a potential for development. Some day it will
What I read told me that the Mankindman was a strange creature which stand on to legs. It seems to be a man from both sides; maybe all sides are man!Ahmad Amani Human Sides Sayings By Ahmad Amani: What I read told me that the Mankindman was a strange creature which stand on
To deny the darkness of the soul is to be but half a human being. But we had both sides.Ray Manzarek Human Sides Sayings By Ray Manzarek: To deny the darkness of the soul is to be but half a human being.
Debates about the imagination and its role in human knowledge go back in the West to ancient Greece around the secrets and enigmas of the revealed "symbol" and its relationship to the more plodding ways of reason and rational knowledge. The most recent chapter of that larger conversation goes back to the eighteenth century and what we now call the Romantic movement. The poets and philosophers of the latter asked: What is the imagination? Is it simply a spinner of fantasies? Or can it also become a "window" of revealed truths from some other deeper part of the soul or world? Or, better yet, like some secret two-way mirror in a modern-day police station, is the imagination both, depending on whether one is looking at or through its reflecting surface, that is, depending on which side of it one is standing? Can one stand on both sides?Whitley Strieber Human Sides Sayings By Whitley Strieber: Debates about the imagination and its role in human knowledge go back in the West
Walk some night on a suburban street and pass house after house on both sides of the same street each with the lamplight of the living room, shining golden, and inside the little blue square of the television, each living family riveting its attention on probably one show; nobody talking; silence in the yards; dogs barking at you because you pass on human feet instead of wheels.Geoff Nicholson Human Sides Sayings By Geoff Nicholson: Walk some night on a suburban street and pass house after house on both sides
7. The Law of Balance in Life. It is also the case with human affairs. Social positions high or low, occupations spiritual or temporal, work rough or gentle, education perfect or imperfect, circumstances needy or opulent, each has its own advantage as well as disadvantage. The higher the position the graver the responsibilities, the lower the rank the lighter the obligation. The director of a large bank can never be so careless as his errand-boy who may stop on the street to throw a stone at a sparrow; nor can the manager of a large plantation have as good a time on a rainy day as his day-labourers who spend it in gambling. The accumulation of wealth is always accompanied by its evils; no Rothschild nor Rockefeller can be happier than a poor pedlar. A mother of many children may be troubled by her noisy little ones and envy her sterile friend, who in turn may complain of her loneliness; but if they balance what they gain with what they lose, they will find the both sides are equal.Kaiten Nukariya Human Sides Sayings By Kaiten Nukariya: 7. The Law of Balance in Life. It is also the case with human affairs.
When two sides who consider each other enemies converge in armed struggle, for the moment they are no longer enemies. They are fellow human beings who face the same two choices that their ancestors did for centuries before them: to destroy each other or to prosper together.Thomas Huynh Human Sides Sayings By Thomas Huynh: When two sides who consider each other enemies converge in armed struggle, for the moment
There's an assault on human sexuality, as Judge Scalia said, they've taken sides in the culture war and on top of that if we have a democracy, the democratic processes should be that we can elect representatives who will share our point of view and vote those things into law.Pat Robertson Human Sides Sayings By Pat Robertson: There's an assault on human sexuality, as Judge Scalia said, they've taken sides in the
(...) Taking the journalist's vow of impartiality and objectivity was not unlike joining an order of monks and spending the rest of your life in a glass monastery - removed from the world of human affairs even as it continued to whirl around you on all sides. To be a journalist meant you could never be the person who tossed the brick through the window that started the revolution. You could only watch the man toss the brick, you could try to understand why he had tossed the brick, you could explain to others what significance the brick had in starting the revolution, but you yourself could never toss the brick or even stand in the mob that was urging the man to throw it.Paul Auster Human Sides Sayings By Paul Auster: (...) Taking the journalist's vow of impartiality and objectivity was not unlike joining an order
How very paltry and limited the normal human intellect is, and how little lucidity there is in the human consciousness, may be judged from the fact that, despite the ephemeral brevity of human life, the uncertainty of our existence and the countless enigmas which press upon us from all sides, everyone does not continually and ceaselessly philosophize, but that only the rarest of exceptions do.Arthur Schopenhauer Human Sides Sayings By Arthur Schopenhauer: How very paltry and limited the normal human intellect is, and how little lucidity there
I think that Gollum is really the character who is a very human character, and he's very flawed, like most humans are, and has good and bad sides.Andy Serkis Human Sides Sayings By Andy Serkis: I think that Gollum is really the character who is a very human character, and
Our world, so we see and hear on all sides, is drowning in materialism, commercialism, consumerism. But the problem is not really there. What we ordinarily speak of as materialism is a result, not a cause. The root of materialism is a poverty of ideas about the inner and the outer world. Less and less does our contemporary culture have, or even seek, commerce with great ideas, and it is that lack that is weakening the human spirit. This is the essence of materialism. Materialism is a disease of the mind starved for ideas.Jacob Needleman Human Sides Sayings By Jacob Needleman: Our world, so we see and hear on all sides, is drowning in materialism, commercialism,
The central position of finance capital is going to come to an end, and it's going to steadily move to the sides, the margins of our society, transformed from being a master into a servant, a servant to the productive economy and of human needs.Geoff Mulgan Human Sides Sayings By Geoff Mulgan: The central position of finance capital is going to come to an end, and it's
Given the behaviour of human beings throughout the ages, they do not deserve life, with its many dark sides, in all its beauty, grandeur and magnificence ...Jose Saramago Human Sides Sayings By Jose Saramago: Given the behaviour of human beings throughout the ages, they do not deserve life, with
If any human being is to reach full maturity both the masculine and feminine sides of the personality must be brought up into consciousness.M. Esther Harding Human Sides Sayings By M. Esther Harding: If any human being is to reach full maturity both the masculine and feminine sides
If my mother's intention in whole or in part was to ensure that I never had to suffer any indignity or embarrassment for being a Jew, then she succeeded well enough. And in any case there were enough intermarriages and 'conversions' on both sides of her line to make me one of those many mischling hybrids who are to be found distributed all over the known world. And, as someone who doesn't really believe that the human species is subdivided by 'race,' let alone that a nation or nationality can be defined by its religion, why should I not let the whole question slide away from me? Why - and then I'll stop asking rhetorical questions - did I at some point resolve that, in whatever tone of voice I was asked 'Are you a Jew?' I would never hear myself deny it?Christopher Hitchens Human Sides Sayings By Christopher Hitchens: If my mother's intention in whole or in part was to ensure that I never
Art is not to do with the practical side of making a living. It's to live a fuller human life.Henry Moore Human Sides Sayings By Henry Moore: Art is not to do with the practical side of making a living. It's to
We now possess four principles of morality: 1) a philosophical: do good for its own sake, out of respect for the law; 2) a religious: do good because it is God's will, out of love of God; 3) a human: do good because it will promote your happiness, out of self-love; 4) a political: do good because it will promote the welfare of the society of which you are a part, out of love of society having regard to yourself. But is this not all one single principle, only viewed from different sides?Georg C. Lichtenberg Human Sides Sayings By Georg C. Lichtenberg: We now possess four principles of morality: 1) a philosophical: do good for its own
Before the Dawn
In the darkest night the sun may seem like an extinguished match or an ember drowned by rain.
A light forever lost.
The cold world grows steadily colder and shrinks like the abused, closing in on all sides. Laughter, smiles, the glimmer of dancing eyes, and all else indicative of human brightness is gone. Colors leeched from everything leave shadows and emotion dull-gray in their absence.
Time is a void. A moment feels eternal.
Hope does not blossom in the darkness but withers fast, starving for what only the sun can offer. As its petals turn to dust, fear blows in and sweeps the remnants away. The soul succumbs by degrees to nightmares emboldened by the dead of night.
All is lost! All is lost!
The wretched sun, repulsed by our nothingness,
has abandoned the lives in its care!
And then the eyes open wide,
seeing mountains take shape on the horizon.
Richelle E. Goodrich Human Sides Sayings By Richelle E. Goodrich: Before the DawnIn the darkest night the sun may seem like an extinguished match or
I love the unanswered question, the unresolved story, the unclimbed mountain, the tender shard of an incomplete dream. Most of the time. But is it mandatory for a writer to be ambiguous about everything? Isn't it true that there have been fearful episodes in human history when prudence and discretion would have just been euphemisms for pusillanimity? When caution was actually cowardice? When sophistication was disguised decadence? When circumspection was really a kind of espousal? Isn't it true, or at least theoretically possible, that there are times in the life of a people or a nation when the political climate demands that we - even the most sophisticated of us - overtly take sides? I think such times are upon us.Arundhati Roy Human Sides Sayings By Arundhati Roy: I love the unanswered question, the unresolved story, the unclimbed mountain, the tender shard of
The whole universe is contained within a single human being - you. Everything that you see around, including the things you might not be fond of and even the people you despise or abhor, is present within you in varying degrees. Therefore, do not look for Sheitan outside yourself either. The devil is not an extraordinary force that attacks from without. It is an ordinary voice within. If you get to know yourself fully, facing with honesty and hardness both your dark and bright sides, you will arrive at a
supreme form of consciousness. When a person knows himself or herself, he or she knows God.
Elif Shafak Human Sides Sayings By Elif Shafak: The whole universe is contained within a single human being - you. Everything that you
Just as the commander of an army pitches his camp, studies the strength and defenses of a fortress, and then attacks it on its weakest side, in like manner, the enemy of our human nature studies from all sides our theological, cardinal, and moral virtues. Wherever he finds us weakest and most in need regarding our eternal salvation, he attacks and tries to take us by storm.Ignatius Of Loyola Human Sides Sayings By Ignatius Of Loyola: Just as the commander of an army pitches his camp, studies the strength and defenses
The down side these days is thinking that, "I can do this all on my own". Yes, you can do this on your own but you'll be a much happier human being if you do it with other human beings.Mick Fleetwood Human Sides Sayings By Mick Fleetwood: The down side these days is thinking that, "I can do this all on my
I'm honored to be at the side of Michele Bachmann. She is a great congresswoman. She is a great human being, and she is a true American patriot.Jon Voight Human Sides Sayings By Jon Voight: I'm honored to be at the side of Michele Bachmann. She is a great congresswoman.
The right wing will be identified with the monied class, even when the left often has more money. And the left wing will be identified as the whiners, even though the right at times whines as much or more. You might say that both sides are monied, high human capital whiners, on the whole.Tyler Cowen Human Sides Sayings By Tyler Cowen: The right wing will be identified with the monied class, even when the left often
As we passed by on the stony causeway, women looked up at us from the fields, their faces furrowed with all known distresses. By their sides, lambs skipped in gaiety and innocence, and goats skipped in gaiety but without innocence, and at their feet the cyclamens shone mauve; the beasts and flowers seemed fortunate because they are not human, as those who have passed within the breath of a plague and have escaped it.Rebecca West Human Sides Sayings By Rebecca West: As we passed by on the stony causeway, women looked up at us from the
The Palestinians are fighting with human suicide bombers, that's all they have. The Israelis they've got one of the most powerful military machines in the world. The Palestinians have nothing. So who are the terrorists? I would make a case that both sides are involved in terrorism.Ted Turner Human Sides Sayings By Ted Turner: The Palestinians are fighting with human suicide bombers, that's all they have. The Israelis they've
I wanted to go amongst gangbangers, to understand this war they were fighting amongst each other. I wanted to document it, [also] to show the human side of it.Jamel Shabazz Human Sides Sayings By Jamel Shabazz: I wanted to go amongst gangbangers, to understand this war they were fighting amongst each
It might be a very human thing across the board, but we, in America, love a story - we need a story to get involved in. But then everything becomes more about how the story protects a certain perception as we pick sides.Brad Pitt Human Sides Sayings By Brad Pitt: It might be a very human thing across the board, but we, in America, love
The whole life story of Jesus, on the human side, is the life story of One who lived by faith.G. Campbell Morgan Human Sides Sayings By G. Campbell Morgan: The whole life story of Jesus, on the human side, is the life story of
Everything was fine with the Zen Lunatics, the nut wagon was too far away to hear us. But there was a wisdom in it all, as you'll see if you take a walk some night on a suburban street and pass house after house on both sides of the street each with the lamplight of the living room, shining golden, and inside the little blue square of the television, each living family riveting its attention on probably one show; nobody talking; silence in the yards; dogs barking at you because you pass on human feet instead of on wheels. You'll see what I mean, when it begins to appear like everybody in the world is soon going to be thinking the same way and the Zen Lunatics have long joined dust, laughter on their dust lips.Jack Kerouac Human Sides Sayings By Jack Kerouac: Everything was fine with the Zen Lunatics, the nut wagon was too far away to
I wish that we had much more of the Spirit of Christ and a great deal less self, and less of human opinions. If we err, let it be on the side of mercy rather than on the side of condemnation and harsh dealingEllen G. White Human Sides Sayings By Ellen G. White: I wish that we had much more of the Spirit of Christ and a great
A brand is a little different. Me, as Carrie the person, wanders around in sweatpants. And then, when I have to be Carrie Underwood, there is definitely a departure from your human side. It's good to make that separation from person to brand.Carrie Underwood Human Sides Sayings By Carrie Underwood: A brand is a little different. Me, as Carrie the person, wanders around in sweatpants.
There is no such thing as beauty, especially in the human face ... what we call the physiognomy. It's all a mathematical and imagined alignment of features. Like, if the nose doesn't stick out too much, the sides are in fashion, if the earlobes aren't too large, if the hair is long ... It's kind of a mirage of generalization. People think of certain faces as beautiful, but, truly, in the final measure, they are not. It's a mathematical equation of zero. "True beauty" comes, of course, of character. Not through how the eyebrows are shaped. So many women that I'm told are beautiful ... hell, it's like looking into a soup bowl.Charles Bukowski Human Sides Sayings By Charles Bukowski: There is no such thing as beauty, especially in the human face ... what we
Every temptation proves a crossroad where we must choose between the high road and the low road. On some occasions it is a trial of agonizing frustration. On other occasions, it is a mere annoyance, a nuisance of minor proportions. but in each case there is some element tot uneasiness, anxiety, and spiritual tugging
ultimately a choosing that forces us to take sides. Neutrality is a nonexistent condition in this life. We are always choosing, always taking sides. That is part of the human experience
facing temptations on a daily, almost moment-by-moment basis
facing them not only on the good days but on the days we are down, the days we are tired, rejected, discouraged, or sick. Every day of our lives we battle temptation
and so did the Savior. It is an integral part of the human experience, faced not only by us but also by him. He drank from the same cup.
Tad R. Callister Human Sides Sayings By Tad R. Callister: Every temptation proves a crossroad where we must choose between the high road and the
The white marble surface was inlaid with semiprecious stones in seamless floral designs and in chaste calligraphy, shaped stones, jeweled stones, delicate and free-figured. The surface ran cool and smooth. Traceries of black Koranic figures covered the longer sides of the tomb with a smaller group on top. My hand moved slowly over the words, feeling for breaks between the inlay and marble, not to fault the craftsmen, of course, but only to find the human labor, the individual, in the wholeness and beauty of the tomb.Don DeLillo Human Sides Sayings By Don DeLillo: The white marble surface was inlaid with semiprecious stones in seamless floral designs and in
It is my rule never to take a side in any part in the quarrels of others, nor to inquire into them. I generally presume them to flow from the indulgence of too much passion on both sides, & always find that each party thinks all the wrong was in his adversary. These bickerings, which are always useless, embitter human life more than any other cause ...Thomas Jefferson Human Sides Sayings By Thomas Jefferson: It is my rule never to take a side in any part in the quarrels
I always considered myself as a character actor. I always try to be versatile to show different sides of human experience.Robert Duvall Human Sides Sayings By Robert Duvall: I always considered myself as a character actor. I always try to be versatile to
Human beings, we have dark sides; we have dark issues in our lives. To progress anywhere in life, you have to face your demons.John Noble Human Sides Sayings By John Noble: Human beings, we have dark sides; we have dark issues in our lives. To progress
I leafed through all the men I had known to see whether or not I hated them. But then I realized it wasn't the men I hated, it was the Americans, the human beings, men and women both. They'd had their chance but they had turned against the gods, and it was time for me to choose sides. I wanted there to be a machine that could make them vanish, a button I could press that would evaporate them without disturbing anything else, that way there would be more room for the animals, they would be rescued.Margaret Atwood Human Sides Sayings By Margaret Atwood: I leafed through all the men I had known to see whether or not I
Unlike the huge majority of the current generation in the West, the men on both sides at Dien Bien Phu did not live at a time or in places where they enjoyed the luxury of disregarding [that war is what human beings do]; and we, who are lifelong civilians, have not earned the right to sit in judgement over them.Martin Windrow Human Sides Sayings By Martin Windrow: Unlike the huge majority of the current generation in the West, the men on both
I like the really human sides of people. To meet them and see that theyre complicated and weird or shy or any of those things sort of makes it even better to know that they can rise above that and make something great.Elizabeth Peyton Human Sides Sayings By Elizabeth Peyton: I like the really human sides of people. To meet them and see that theyre
When we get to the point, as we one day will, that both sides know that in any outbreak of general hostilities, regardless of the element of surprise, destruction will be both reciprocal and complete, possibly we will have sense enough to meet at the conference table with the understanding that the era of armaments has ended and the human race must conform its actions to this truth or die.Dwight D. Eisenhower Human Sides Sayings By Dwight D. Eisenhower: When we get to the point, as we one day will, that both sides know
Part of the human experience is to confront temptation. No one escapes. It is omnipresent. It is both externally driven and internally prompted. It is like the enemy that attacks from all sides. It boldly assaults us in television shows, movies, billboards, and newspapers in the name of entertainment or free speech. It walks down our streets and sits in our offices in the name of fashion. It drives our roads in the name of style. It represents itself as political correctness or business necessity. It claims moral sanction under the guise of free choice. On occasion it roars like thunder; on others it whispers in subtle, soothing tones. With chameleon-like skill it camouflages its ever-present nature, but it is there
always there.
Tad R. Callister Human Sides Sayings By Tad R. Callister: Part of the human experience is to confront temptation. No one escapes. It is omnipresent.
To sum up all, let it be known that science and religion are two identical words. The learned do not suspect this, no more do the religious. These two words express the two sides of the same fact, which is the infinite. Religion-Science, this is the future of the human mind.Victor Hugo Human Sides Sayings By Victor Hugo: To sum up all, let it be known that science and religion are two identical
For poverty is miserable. It is ugly, disorganized, rowdy, sick, uneducated, violent, afflicted with crime. Poverty demeans human dignity. The demanding tone, the inarticulateness, the implied violence deeply offended us. We didn't want to see it on our sacred monumental grounds. We wanted it out of sight and out of mind.Hampton Sides Human Sides Sayings By Hampton Sides: For poverty is miserable. It is ugly, disorganized, rowdy, sick, uneducated, violent, afflicted with crime.
In the course of our eternal existence, we spend infinitely more time in the spirit world on the other side than we spend in the human world on earth.Sylvia Browne Human Sides Sayings By Sylvia Browne: In the course of our eternal existence, we spend infinitely more time in the spirit
In the context of the autism world (and my outlook in general) this is were I stand equality is for everyone, everybody in the world - I look at both sides of the the coin and take into account peoples realities (that makes me neutral/moderate/in the middle).
That means that you look in a more three dimensional perspective of peoples diverse realities you cannot speak for all but one can learn from EACH OTHER through listening and experiencing.
I also try my best to live with the good cards I was given not over-investing in my autism being the defining factor of my being (but having a healthy acknowledgement of it) that it's there but also thinking about other qualities I have such as being a writer, poet and artist.
I do have disability, I do have autism and I have a "mild" learning disability that is true but I a human being first and foremost. And for someone to be seen as person equal to everyone else is a basic human right.
Paul Isaacs Human Sides Sayings By Paul Isaacs: In the context of the autism world (and my outlook in general) this is were
The man who was talking had ceased to be of human size or proportions but had become a Colossus whose silhouette swooned backwards and forwards with the deep droning rhythm of his drug-laden phrases. He went on and on and on, unhurried, unruffled, inexhaustible, inextinguishable, a voice that had taken form and shape and substance, a figure that had
outgrown its human frame, a silhouette whose reverberations rumbled in the depths of the distant mountain sides.
Henry Miller Human Sides Sayings By Henry Miller: The man who was talking had ceased to be of human size or proportions but
Hell wasn't a major reservoir of evil, any more then Heaven, in Crowley's opinion, was a fountain of goodness; they were just sides in the great cosmic chess game. Where you found the real McCoy, the real grace and the real heart-stopping evil, was right inside the human mind.Terry Pratchett Human Sides Sayings By Terry Pratchett: Hell wasn't a major reservoir of evil, any more then Heaven, in Crowley's opinion, was
I'm interested in writing that explores all sides of human beings.Annette Bening Human Sides Sayings By Annette Bening: I'm interested in writing that explores all sides of human beings.
The real thing about evil," said the Witch at the doorway, "isn't any of what you said. You figure out one side of it - the human side, say - and the eternal side goes into shadow. Or vice versa. It's like the old saw: What does a dragon in its shell look like? Well no one can ever tell, for as soon as you break the shell to see, the dragon is no longer in its shell. The real disaster of this inquiry is that it is the nature of evil to be secret.Gregory Maguire Human Sides Sayings By Gregory Maguire: The real thing about evil," said the Witch at the doorway, "isn't any of what
As a child I was not interested in science. I was merely interested in things human, the human side of nature, if you like, and I continue to be interested in that. That's what motivates me.Jonas Salk Human Sides Sayings By Jonas Salk: As a child I was not interested in science. I was merely interested in things
At the water's edge, barrels of pitch blazed like huge bonfires. Their reflection, crimson as the rising moon, crept to meet us in long, wide stripes. The burning barrels threw light on their own smoke and on the long human shadows that flitted about the fire; but further to the sides and behind them, where the velvet ringing rushed from, was the same impenetrable darkness. Suddenly slashing it open, the golden ribbon of a rocket soared skywards; it described an arc and, as if shattering against the sky, burst and came sifting down in sparks.
- Easter Night
Anton Chekhov Human Sides Sayings By Anton Chekhov: At the water's edge, barrels of pitch blazed like huge bonfires. Their reflection, crimson as
I think it is the hardest thing in the world. I'm endlessly intrigued by what human nature is capable of, both the horrible things we are capable of and also the heroic things. I'm really interested in exploring that side of human nature.Veena Sud Human Sides Sayings By Veena Sud: I think it is the hardest thing in the world. I'm endlessly intrigued by what
But if we understand anything of the unconscious, we know that it cannot be swallowed. We also know that it is dangerous to suppress it, because the unconscious is life and this life turns against us if suppressed, as happens in neurosis. Conscious and unconscious do not make a whole when one of them is suppressed and injured by the other. If they must contend, at least let it be a fair fight with equal rights on both sides. Both are aspects of life. Consciousness should defend its reason and protect itself, and the chaotic life of the unconscious should be given the chance of having its way too - as much of it as we can stand. This means open conflict and open collaboration at once. That, evidently, is the way human life should be. It is the old game of hammer and anvil: between them the patient iron is forged into an indestructible whole, an 'individual.' This, roughly, is what I mean by the individuation process.C. G. Jung Human Sides Sayings By C. G. Jung: But if we understand anything of the unconscious, we know that it cannot be swallowed.
Sports biography at its best. Rich in period detail, anecdote, and fresh perspective, Strong Boy paints both the good and the bad sides of success, as America's growing celebrity culture turned a simple Irish American gladiator into a national, in fact international hero. A very human story with profound parallels for our sports-obsessed culture today!Nigel Hamilton Human Sides Sayings By Nigel Hamilton: Sports biography at its best. Rich in period detail, anecdote, and fresh perspective, Strong Boy
Every man lives for himself, using his freedom to attain his personal aims, and feels with his whole being that he can at any moment perform or not perform this or that action; but, so soon as he has done it, that action accomplished at a certain moment in time becomes irrevocable and belongs to history, in which it has not a free but a predestined significance. There are two sides to the life of every man: there is his individual existence which is free in proportion as his interests are abstract; and his elemental life as a unit in the human swarm, in which he must inevitably obey the laws laid down for him.Leo Tolstoy Human Sides Sayings By Leo Tolstoy: Every man lives for himself, using his freedom to attain his personal aims, and feels
It was the summer in America when the nausea returned, when the joking didn't stop, when the speculation and the theorizing and the hyperbole didn't stop, when the moral obligation to explain to one's children about adult life was abrogated in favor of maintaining in them every illusion about adult life, when the smallness of people was simply crushing, when some kind of demon had been unleashed in the nation and, on both sides, people wondered "Why are we so crazy?" when men and women alike, upon awakening in the morning, discovered that during the night, in a state of sleep that transported them beyond envy or loathing, they had dreamed of the brazenness of Bill Clinton. I myself dreamed of a mammoth banner, draped dadaistically like a Christo wrapping from one end of the White House to the other and bearing the legend A HUMAN BEING LIVES HERE.Philip Roth Human Sides Sayings By Philip Roth: It was the summer in America when the nausea returned, when the joking didn't stop,
Oh, but Masha, can't you see? You are. An Ivan has come. That is like saying, Midnight has struck. It is time for bed, little one. You cannot have both. In war you must always choose sides. One or the other. Silver or black. Human or demon. If you try to be a bridge laid down between them, they will tear you in half.Catherynne M Valente Human Sides Sayings By Catherynne M Valente: Oh, but Masha, can't you see? You are. An Ivan has come. That is like
But I find something compelling in the game's choreography, the way one move implies the next. The kings are an apt metaphor for human beings: utterly constrained by the rules of the game, defenseless against bombardment from all sides, able only to temporarily dodge disaster by moving one step in any direction.Jennifer DuBois Human Sides Sayings By Jennifer DuBois: But I find something compelling in the game's choreography, the way one move implies the
A Christian has no right to separate his life into two realms... to say the Bible is good for Sunday, but this is a week-day question, or the Scriptures are right in matters of religion, but this is a matter of business or politics. God reigns over all, everywhere. His will is the supreme law. His inspired Word, loyally read will inform us of His will in every relation and act of life, secular as well as religious; and the man is a traitor who refuses to walk therein with scrupulous care. The kingdom of God includes all sides of human life, and it is a kingdom of absolute righteousness. You are wither a loyal subject, or a traitor. When the King comes, how will He find you doing?Archibald Alexander Hodge Human Sides Sayings By Archibald Alexander Hodge: A Christian has no right to separate his life into two realms... to say the
To be quite accurate, human nature is simply what it is; it has its dark and its light sides. The sum of all colours is grey - light on a dark background or dark on light.C. G. Jung Human Sides Sayings By C. G. Jung: To be quite accurate, human nature is simply what it is; it has its dark
Stick out your arms," he'd say, "straight out at your sides," and when he had you in the appropriate cruciform position he'd say, "Left index finger to right index finger straight across your heart, that's the history of the Earth. You know what human history is? Human history is the nail on your right-hand index finger. Not even the whole nail. Just that little white part. The part you clip off when it gets too long. That's the discovery of fire and the invention of writing and Galileo and Newton and the moon landing and 9/11 and last week and this morning. Compared to evolution we're newborns. Compared to geology, we barely existRobert Charles Wilson Human Sides Sayings By Robert Charles Wilson: Stick out your arms," he'd say, "straight out at your sides," and when he had
It sounds strange to say it, but you can be in a war zone and have a lot of fun. Even though war is essentially pain on all sides, human beings have the capacity to enjoy themselves. The soldiers are mostly young people, full of enthusiasm and energy, and that's an exciting thing for an old guy like me.Bruce Cockburn Human Sides Sayings By Bruce Cockburn: It sounds strange to say it, but you can be in a war zone and
But I own that I cannot see as plainly as others do, and as I should wish to do, evidence of design and beneficence on all sides of us. There seems to me too much misery in the world. I cannot persuade myself that a beneficent and omnipotent God would have designedly created the Ichneumonidae with the express intention of their feeding within the living bodies of Caterpillars, or that a cat should play with mice ... I feel most deeply that the whole subject is too profound for the human intellect. A dog might as well speculate on the mind of Newton. Let each man hope and believe what he can.Charles Darwin Human Sides Sayings By Charles Darwin: But I own that I cannot see as plainly as others do, and as I

Sooner or later ... one has to take sides. If one is to remain human.Graham Greene Human Sides Sayings By Graham Greene: Sooner or later ... one has to take sides. If one is to remain human.
One should never take sides in anything, Mr. Kelvil. Taking sides is the beginning of sincerity, and earnestness follows shortly afterwards, and the human being becomes a bore.Oscar Wilde Human Sides Sayings By Oscar Wilde: One should never take sides in anything, Mr. Kelvil. Taking sides is the beginning of
The proximity of these two cultures over the course of many generations presented both sides with a stark choice about how to live. By the end of the nineteenth century, factories were being built in Chicago and slums were taking root in New York while Indians fought with spears and tomahawks a thousand miles away. It may say something about human nature that a surprising number of Americans - mostly men - wound up joining Indian society rather than staying in their own. They emulated Indians, married them, were adopted by them, and on some occasions even fought alongside them. And the opposite almost never happened: Indians almost never ran away to join white society. Emigration always seemed to go from the civilized to the tribal, and it left Western thinkers flummoxed about how to explain such an apparent rejection of their society.

Exposure to a mixed body of evidence made both sides even more convinced of the fundamental soundness of their original beliefs.' Confirmation bias is profoundly human and it is appalling. When new information leads to an increase in ignorance, it is the opposite of learning, the death of wisdom.Will Storr Human Sides Sayings By Will Storr: Exposure to a mixed body of evidence made both sides even more convinced of the
So, whenever you hear or see violence, there is violence on both sides of the border, or it's both country's responsibility. When we talk about trafficking with weapons, with human beings or with drugs, we talk about it on both sides of the border.Demian Bichir Human Sides Sayings By Demian Bichir: So, whenever you hear or see violence, there is violence on both sides of the
In human history a moral victory is always a disaster, for it debauches and degrades both the victor and the vanquished. The triumph of sin in 1865 would have stimulated and helped to civilize both sides.H.L. Mencken Human Sides Sayings By H.L. Mencken: In human history a moral victory is always a disaster, for it debauches and degrades

We need a global approach to this from all sides.

The foundations of liberty are private property and the rule of law; this system guarantees the fewest possible forms of injustice, produces the greatest material and cultural progress, most effectively stems violence and provides the greatest respect for human rights. According to this concept of liberalism, freedom is a single, unified concept. Political and economic liberties are as inseparable as the two sides of a medal.Mario Vargas-Llosa Human Sides Sayings By Mario Vargas-Llosa: The foundations of liberty are private property and the rule of law; this system guarantees
Pretending",' she looked at the garden, 'is not the truth.'
'But you said two true things, right ? One, you hate this girl. Two, you want her to feel better. If you decide that the wanting truth's more important than the hating truth, just tell her you've forgiven her, even if you haven't. At least she'd feel better. Maybe that'd make you feel better too.'
Madame Crommelynck studied her hands, moodily, both sides. 'Sophistry', she pronounced.
I'm not sure what 'sophistry' means so I kept shtum.

But civilized human beings are alarmingly ignorant of the fact that they are continuous with their natural surroundings. It is as necessary to have air, water, plants, insects, birds, fish, and mammals as it is to have brains, hearts, lungs, and stomachs. The former are our external organs in the same way that the latter are our internal organs. If then, we can no more live without the things outside than without those inside, the plain inference is that the words "I" and "myself " must include both sides. The sun, the earth, and the forests are just as much features of your own body as your brain. Erosion of the soil is as much a personal disease as leprosy, and many "growing communities" are as disastrous as cancer.Alan W. Watts Human Sides Sayings By Alan W. Watts: But civilized human beings are alarmingly ignorant of the fact that they are continuous with
The notion that the mind and body are actually different sides of the same coin goes all the way back to the origins of medicine.

Its complicated, on one level. On another, its the same old stupid story - we aren't enlightened. We disagree, fall in love, and hate eachother, the whole spectrum of human experience. We have differences of opinion, and sometimes, we can't resolve those differences peacefully. If a disagreement goes for long enough, and is important enough, people start to take sides. Once people start to take sides, conflict is inevitable.Zachary Rawlins Human Sides Sayings By Zachary Rawlins: Its complicated, on one level. On another, its the same old stupid story - we
All marriages have their bad sides, because people have weaknesses. If you live with another human being you learn to handle these weaknesses in a variety of ways. For instance, you might take the view that weaknesses are a bit like heavy pieces of furniture, and based on this you must learn to clean around them. To maintain the illusion.Fredrik Backman Human Sides Sayings By Fredrik Backman: All marriages have their bad sides, because people have weaknesses. If you live with another

As a full-time, and serious-minded, UFO investigator, I strongly side with the proponents.

We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented. Sometimes we must interfere. When human lives are endangered, when human dignity is in jeopardy, national borders and sensitivities become irrelevant. Wherever men and women are persecuted because of their race, religion, or political views, that place must - at that moment - become the center of the universe.Elie Wiesel Human Sides Sayings By Elie Wiesel: We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor,
Some economists became obsessed with market efficiency and others with market failure. Generally held to be members of opposite schools-freshwater and saltwater, Chicago and Cambridge, liberal and conservative, Austrian and Keynesian-both sides share an essential economic vision. They see their discipline as successful insofar as it eliminates surprise-insofar, that is, as the inexorable workings of the machine override the initiatives of the human actors.George Gilder Human Sides Sayings By George Gilder: Some economists became obsessed with market efficiency and others with market failure.

The typical Western is kind of a good-guy/bad-guy thing, and that's great, but initially when I heard about 'Into the West,' and what I love about it is it delves into both sides of our cultural past, and it puts more of a human face on the Native Americans.Matthew Settle Human Sides Sayings By Matthew Settle: The typical Western is kind of a good-guy/bad-guy thing, and that's great, but initially when
All this pitting of sex against sex...

The Bible give us a list of human stories on both sides of the ledger. On list of human stories is used examples - do what these people did.

In war, in some sense, lies the very genius of law. It is law creative and active; it is the first principle of the law. What is human warfare but just this, - an effort to make the laws of God and nature take sides with one party. Men make an arbitrary code, and, because it is not right, they try to make it prevail by might. The moral law does not want any champion. Its asserters do not go to war. It was never infringed with impunity. It is inconsistent to decry war and maintain law, for if there were no need of war there would be no need of law.Henry David Thoreau Human Sides Sayings By Henry David Thoreau: In war, in some sense, lies the very genius of law. It is law creative
