Today the Israeli government continues seizures of Palestinian land for settlements, military incursions into surrounding countries and denial of the right of Palestinians expelled by terror to return.

But being the mirrors for each other's souls has a cost: by the time they part from each other, the individuals in the mating pair have become indistinguishable. Before their merger, they each yearned for the other; as they part, they part from the self. The very quality that attracted them to each other is also, inevitably, destroyed in their union.Ken Liu Ken's Sayings By Ken Liu: But being the mirrors for each other's souls has a cost: by the time they

It's not enough to be good at something to be in your element ... We're being brought up with this idea that life is linear. This is an idea that's perpetuated when you come to write your CV - that you set out your life in a series of dates and achievements, in a linear way, as if your whole existence has progressed in an ordered, structured way, to bring you to this current interview.Ken Robinson Ken's Sayings By Ken Robinson: It's not enough to be good at something to be in your element ...

Understanding God's Word is an essential ingredient of wisdom, which is the ability to apply God's truth to life's complexities. Having wisdom does not mean that you understand all of God's
ways; it means that you respond to life God's way (Deut. 29:29). The better you know the Bible, the wiser you will be and the more effectively you will deal with conflict.
Ken Sande Ken's Sayings By Ken Sande: Understanding God's Word is an essential ingredient of wisdom, which is the ability to apply

At home, she toed the party line: "The greatest calling for a woman is to be a Catholic wife and mother." But I sensed that she hated the 1960s convention of stay-at-home motherhood. In my thirties, when my father shipped me my old Barbie-doll cases that had been sealed in storage since my mother's death, I found evidence of her unhappiness. My Barbie stuff was a mirror of her values. She never told me that marriage could be a trap, but she refused to buy my Barbie doll a wedding dress. She didn't say, "I loathe housework," but she refused to buy Barbie pots and pans. What she often said, however, was "Education is power." And in case I was too thick to grasp this, she bought graduation robes for Barbie, Ken, and Midge.M.G. Lord Ken's Sayings By M.G. Lord: At home, she toed the party line: "The greatest calling for a woman is to

Sweeping the dorm soon's it's empty, I'm after dust mice under his bed when I get a smell of something that makes me realize for the first time since I been in the hospital that the big dorm full of beds, sleeps forty grown men, has always been sticky with a thousand other smells - smells of germicide, zinc ointment, and foot powder, smell of piss and sour old-man manure, of Pablum and eyewash, of musty shorts and socks musty even when they're fresh back from the laundry, the stiff odor of starch in the linen, the acid stench of morning mouths, the banana smell of machine oil, and sometimes the smell of singed hair - but never before now, before he came in, the man smell of dust and dirt from the open fields, and sweat, and work.Ken Kesey Ken's Sayings By Ken Kesey: Sweeping the dorm soon's it's empty, I'm after dust mice under his bed when I

You can't blame the President for the state of the country, it's always the poets' fault. You can't expect politicians to come up with a vision, they don't have it in them. Poets have to come up with the vision and they have to turn it on so it sparks and catches hold.Ken Kesey Ken's Sayings By Ken Kesey: You can't blame the President for the state of the country, it's always the poets'
Too many congregations look to their pastors for simple answers to problems that their pastors see as anything but simple.

Filmmaking is essentially about entertainment, but it's amazing to realize that it has this other muscle that could actually help. Do you know what I mean? People permit entertainment to wash over them, but every once and a while, entertainment - and this is entertaining - also galvanizes something else and that would be a really good thing to have happen in this case.Ken Burns Ken's Sayings By Ken Burns: Filmmaking is essentially about entertainment, but it's amazing to realize that it has this other

Da Free John's phrase kept running through my mind: "Practice the wound of love ... practice the wound of love." Real love hurts; real love makes you totally vulnerable and open; real love will take you far beyond yourself; and therefore real love will devastate you. I kept thinking, if love does not shatter you, you do not know love ...Ken Wilber Ken's Sayings By Ken Wilber: Da Free John's phrase kept running through my mind: "Practice the wound of love ...
Imagine a world where speaking or writing words can literally or directly make things happen, where getting one of those words wrong can wreak unbelievable havoc, but where the right spell you can summon immensely powerful agencies to work your will. Imagine further that this world is administered: there is an extensive division of labour, among the magicians themselves and between the magicians and those who coordinate their activity. It's bureaucratic, and also (therefore) chaotic, and it's full of people at desks muttering curses and writing invocations, all beavering away at a small part of the big picture. The coordinators, because they don't understand what's going on, are easy prey for smooth-talking preachers of bizarre cults that demand arbitrary sacrifices and vanish with large amounts of money. Welcome to the IT department.Ken MacLeod Ken's Sayings By Ken MacLeod: Imagine a world where speaking or writing words can literally or directly make things happen,
In the 1930s, Americans hopped trains. In the 1950s, beat poets wrote about road trips. In the 1960s, we hitched rides. Today, however, it seems like the whole "coming of age" adventure has been abridged from a young person's life experience, leaving no gap, no bridge, no moment of real freedom in between school and career. IKen Ilgunas Ken's Sayings By Ken Ilgunas: In the 1930s, Americans hopped trains. In the 1950s, beat poets wrote about road trips.

Huxley and Orwell did not prophesy the same thing. Orwell warns that we will be overcome by an externally imposed oppression. But in Huxley's vision, no Big Brother is required to deprive people of their autonomy, maturity and history. As he saw it, people will come to love their oppression, to adore the technologies that undo their capacities to think.... Orwell feared those who would deprive us of information. Huxley feared those who would give us so much that we would be reduced to passivity and egoism.Ken Auletta Ken's Sayings By Ken Auletta: Huxley and Orwell did not prophesy the same thing. Orwell warns that we will be

Conscious means "having an awareness of one's inner and outer worlds; mentally perceptive, awake, mindful." So "conscious business" might mean, engaging in an occupation, work, or trade in a mindful, awake fashion. This implies, of course, that many people do not do so. In my experience, that is often the case. So I would definitely be in favor of conscious business; or conscious anything, for that matter.Ken Wilber Ken's Sayings By Ken Wilber: Conscious means "having an awareness of one's inner and outer worlds; mentally perceptive, awake, mindful."
Whether the Eisenhower administration has underestimated the American people's interest in space exploration or Truman never full appreciated MacArthur, the Soviet Union's Sputnik program has created a public spectacle that even Disney and von Braun might envy.Ken Hollings Ken's Sayings By Ken Hollings: Whether the Eisenhower administration has underestimated the American people's interest in space exploration or Truman
I think green buildings are extremely important but it's only part of the equation. A lot of people think that if I put a green building everything is going to be fine, but actually it's not just the green buildings we need, but green businesses, green governments, green economics. We have to extend the greening of buildings to our business and our lifestyles - that is the most important thing to do next.Ken Yeang Ken's Sayings By Ken Yeang: I think green buildings are extremely important but it's only part of the equation. A
Over the fireplace was the portrait of his father's first wife, Robert's mother, Olive. Jay hated that painting. There she was, solemn and saintly, looking down her long nose at all who came after her. When she caught a fever and died suddenly at the age of twenty-nine his father had remarried, but he never forgot his first love. He treated Jay's mother, Alicia, like a mistress, a plaything with no status and no rights; and he made Jay feel almost like an illegitimate son. Robert was the firstborn, the heir, the special one. Jay sometimes wanted to ask whether it had been an immaculate conception and a virgin birth.Ken Follett Ken's Sayings By Ken Follett: Over the fireplace was the portrait of his father's first wife, Robert's mother, Olive. Jay
A manager's most important work is helping the people doing the work. Give them a goal and let them work. Remove any impediments that get in their way. Do anything that make them more effective or productive. Then the organization can capitalize on the fruits of their work.Ken Schwaber Ken's Sayings By Ken Schwaber: A manager's most important work is helping the people doing the work. Give them a
There must be something innate about maps, about this one specific way of picturing our world and our relation to it, that charms us, calls to us, won't let us look anywhere else in the room if there's a map on the wall.Ken Jennings Ken's Sayings By Ken Jennings: There must be something innate about maps, about this one specific way of picturing our
Nothing in our daily life offers more of the comfort of continuity, the generational connection of belonging to a vast and complicated American family, the powerful sense of home, the freedom from time's constraints, and the great gift of accumulated memory than does our National Pastime.Ken Burns Ken's Sayings By Ken Burns: Nothing in our daily life offers more of the comfort of continuity, the generational connection
When it comes to assessment, the traditional model of assessment is assessment for learning. What people like to talk about now is that the twenty-first-century model is assessment of learning. But if assessment is merely the way we are able to determine how much learning has occurred, then the ultimate goal is assessment as learning, where assessment occurs in real time and is the process by which people reflect on their own thinking and diagnose how they've changed. There are schools that do this. There's a remarkable school in New Hampshire that, for them, the thing that matters the most is that people who graduate from their school have seventeen specific habits of mind and work - everything from collaboration and leadership to curiosity and wonder. They've developed these really thoughtful behavioral rubrics that break down each of those habits by subskills.Ken Robinson Ken's Sayings By Ken Robinson: When it comes to assessment, the traditional model of assessment is assessment for learning. What
They talked like this all the time. There was no malice in it: they were just brutally frank with each other. They were brothers, so there was no need to be nice." ~~Winter of the World (having 3 sons, it's nice to know this dynamic is normal b/c I'm always telling them to, 'Talk nice to your brother!') Ken Follett Ken's Sayings By Ken Follett: They talked like this all the time. There was no malice in it: they were
About half the scripts sent to me feature characters I just can't identify with, particularly one-dimensional businessmen or, if it's a comedy, some absurd 10-year-old Japanese stereotype, some role related to IT or business ... There's no point in getting mad about it; it's just the way things are.Ken Watanabe Ken's Sayings By Ken Watanabe: About half the scripts sent to me feature characters I just can't identify with, particularly
prominent lines in the star's spectrum these will show up. Likewise, if there is a planetary nebula or a bright emission nebula in the field these will only show as small points (due to the fine emission lines of the gases involved) rather than a spread out spectrum. This makes the grating a handy tool for finding faint planetary nebula. (See Chap. 7 for more detail.)Ken M. Harrison Ken's Sayings By Ken M. Harrison: prominent lines in the star's spectrum these will show up. Likewise, if there is a
I came to believe that my job was not to receive and critique a sermon but to dig into it, to seize its power, to participate with its message, and to steal its fruit. I learned by sitting under Ken Smith's preaching that the easily offended are missing the point.Rosaria Champagne Butterfield Ken's Sayings By Rosaria Champagne Butterfield: I came to believe that my job was not to receive and critique a sermon
The moment they met, Simon had decided that if looks matched personalities, Jon Cartwright would look like a horse's ass. Unfortunately, there is no justice in the world, and he looked instead like a walking Ken doll. Sometimes first impressions were misleading; sometimes they peered straight through to a person's inner soul. Simon was as sure now as he'd ever been: Jon's inner soul was a horse's ass.Cassandra Clare Ken's Sayings By Cassandra Clare: The moment they met, Simon had decided that if looks matched personalities, Jon Cartwright would
On the Native American front, we have turned a new page in the 400-year history of the interface between the American settlers of this country and the nation's first Americans. That's included a new relationship where the sovereignty of tribes is in fact recognized.Ken Salazar Ken's Sayings By Ken Salazar: On the Native American front, we have turned a new page in the 400-year history

It's as if I'm afloat in a sea of change. Each piece of wreckage to which I cling has limited buoyancy and soon sinks, forcing me to hold tightly to another and then another.Ken Davis Ken's Sayings By Ken Davis: It's as if I'm afloat in a sea of change. Each piece of wreckage to
In my land, they tell legends of range-wars between the ranchers and the sheep-farmers," he said. "Because, it was told, the sheep ate the grass too close. Took even the roots, you ken, so it wouldn't grow back again." "That's plain silly, beg your pardon," Overholser said. "Sheep do crop grass close, aye, but then we send the cows over it to water. The manure they drop is full of seed." "Ah," Eddie said. He couldn't think of anything else. Put that way, the whole idea of range-wars seemed exquisitely stupid.Stephen King Ken's Sayings By Stephen King: In my land, they tell legends of range-wars between the ranchers and the sheep-farmers," he

We are part and parcel of a single and all-encompassing evolutionary current that is itself Spirit-in-action, the mode and manner of Spirit's creation, and thus is always going beyond what went before-that leaps, not crawls, to new plateaus of truth, only to leap again, dying and being reborn with each new quantum lurch, often stumbling and bruising its metaphyscical knees, yet always getting right back up and jumping yet again.Ken Wilber Ken's Sayings By Ken Wilber: We are part and parcel of a single and all-encompassing evolutionary current that is itself
The role of a creative leader is not to have all the ideas; it's to create a culture where everyone can have ideas and feel that they're valued.Ken Robinson Ken's Sayings By Ken Robinson: The role of a creative leader is not to have all the ideas; it's to
I know why I am here and my only real focused goal is to live each day to the fullest and to try and honor God and be an encouragement to others.

You have moments where you do appearances and people recognize you and you get fan letters, but that's after you've put in long days rehearsing, filming and for us kids - going to school on the set.Ken Osmond Ken's Sayings By Ken Osmond: You have moments where you do appearances and people recognize you and you get fan

These are society's definitions of poverty and wealth: To be poor is to have less and to be rich is to have more. Under these definitions, we are always poor, always covetous, always dissatisfied, no matter the size of our salary, or how comfortable we are, or if our needs are in fact fulfilled.Ken Ilgunas Ken's Sayings By Ken Ilgunas: These are society's definitions of poverty and wealth: To be poor is to have less
The Bible makes it clear that Adam's sin affected the whole universe. This means that any aliens would also be affected by Adam's sin, but because they are not Adam's descendants, they can't have salvation.Ken Ham Ken's Sayings By Ken Ham: The Bible makes it clear that Adam's sin affected the whole universe. This means that
People who haven't ridden in trains don't know what they're missing. It's not like an airplane. You get to see the countryside, the beautiful country we live in. Unfortunately, our railroads have dwindled in passenger traffic.Ken Kelly Ken's Sayings By Ken Kelly: People who haven't ridden in trains don't know what they're missing. It's not like an
One of the dumbest things you were ever taught was to write what you know. Because what you know is usually dull. Remember when you first wanted to be a writer? Eight or ten years old, reading about thin-lipped heroes flying over mysterious viny jungles toward untold wonders? That's what you wanted to write about, about what you didn't know. So. What mysterious time and place don't we know?
[Remember This: Write What You Don't Know (New York Times Book Review, December 31, 1989)]
Ken Kesey Ken's Sayings By Ken Kesey: One of the dumbest things you were ever taught was to write what you know.

In this country, we were not into detail. Europe developed detail." "Why do you think that is?" "Weather. The whole history of England consists of finding things to do out of the weather. Which tells you why Russia was even worse. That's why Russian novels have 182 characters: bad weather.Ken Jennings Ken's Sayings By Ken Jennings: In this country, we were not into detail. Europe developed detail." "Why do you think
One other thing this skinny Arab knew: the power of hating the Jew. He could quote from the Holy Book chapter and verse the perfidy of Jews. He could show the dagger of Israel stuck in the soul of Jerusalem where Prophet Muhammad ascended to Heaven. And this son of Islam's most holy places could wrap it all up in a tidy little conspiracy, the Jews in New York controlling America, the Great Satan, launching their crusades against Muslims everywhere. See, we Muslims are nursed on the mother's milk of conspiracies. And unless you have a conspiracy to explain everything in one neat package, we simply won't believe you.Ken Ballen Ken's Sayings By Ken Ballen: One other thing this skinny Arab knew: the power of hating the Jew. He could

I remember seeing a Nazi poster," she went on. It was this memory that had triggered her dreadful thought. "There was a picture of a male nurse and a mentally handicapped man. The text said something like: 'Sixty thousand reichsmarks is what this person suffering from hereditary defects costs the people's community during his lifetime. Comrade, that is your money too!' It was an advertisement for a magazine, I think.Ken Follett Ken's Sayings By Ken Follett: I remember seeing a Nazi poster," she went on. It was this memory that had
We regret the insinuation that Mr. Alex Trebek is a robot, and has been since 2004. Mr. Trebek's robotic frame does still contain some organic parts, many harvested from patriotic Canadian schoolchildren, so this technically makes him a 'cyborg,' not a 'robot.'Ken Jennings Ken's Sayings By Ken Jennings: We regret the insinuation that Mr. Alex Trebek is a robot, and has been since
After you have the basics down it's all mental.Ken Venturi Ken's Sayings By Ken Venturi: After you have the basics down it's all mental.
Perhaps there's no better act of simplification than climbing a mountain. For an afternoon, a day, or a week, it's a way of reducing a complicated life into a simple goal. All you have to do is take one step at a time, place one foot in front of the other, and refuse to turn back until you've given everything you have.Ken Ilgunas Ken's Sayings By Ken Ilgunas: Perhaps there's no better act of simplification than climbing a mountain. For an afternoon, a
In the dream state, the mind and soul are set free to create as they please, to imagine vast worlds not tied to gross sensory realities but reaching out, almost magically, to touch other souls, other people and far-off places, wild and radiant images cascading to the rhythm of the heart's desire.Ken Wilber Ken's Sayings By Ken Wilber: In the dream state, the mind and soul are set free to create as they

I never give anyone advice: it can backfire horribly. In the 1950s, Eric Morecambe told Ken Dodd to get his teeth fixed. But those teeth turned out to be one of Dodd's big selling points.Paul Merton Ken's Sayings By Paul Merton: I never give anyone advice: it can backfire horribly. In the 1950s, Eric Morecambe told
We shouldn't just look at new buildings but at existing stock building because that's an even greater problem than the new buildings being built. The renovation of existing buildings and making them green is just as important as designing new green buildings.Ken Yeang Ken's Sayings By Ken Yeang: We shouldn't just look at new buildings but at existing stock building because that's an

Men are always the last to ken what women know by sniffing the air. That's why God gave bodily might to Adam, to balance the inequities of strength. For if Eve had been given the power to serve her cunning and cruelty, there would have been a terrible reckoning for all mandkind, and the archangel would have trod on Adam's heels to escape paradise unsinged.Kathleen Kent Ken's Sayings By Kathleen Kent: Men are always the last to ken what women know by sniffing the air. That's
The old man's two sons had fought and died for the hegemon in his endless wars. The old man was sick of talk of valor and honor, of glory and courage. He just wanted his sons back, strong boys who had worked hard in the fields. Boys who did not understand why they had to die, only that someone told them it was sweet and fitting to do so.Ken Liu Ken's Sayings By Ken Liu: The old man's two sons had fought and died for the hegemon in his endless
They all spoke some German, having been living in the German-speaking region of Switzerland. Lenin himself spoke it well. He was a remarkable linguist, Walter learned. He was fluent in French, spoke passable English, and read Aristotle in ancient Greek. Lenin's idea of relaxation was to sit down with a foreign-language dictionary for an hour or two.Ken Follett Ken's Sayings By Ken Follett: They all spoke some German, having been living in the German-speaking region of Switzerland. Lenin
The students who feel alienated by current systems of standardization and testing may walk out the door, and it's left to them and others to pay the price in unemployment benefits and other social programs. These problems are not accidental by-products of standardized education; they are a structural feature of these systems. They were designed to process people according to particular conceptions of talent and economic need and were bound to produce winners and losers in just those terms. And they do. Many of these "externalities" could be avoided if education genuinely gave all students the same opportunities to explore their real capabilities and create their best lives.Ken Robinson Ken's Sayings By Ken Robinson: The students who feel alienated by current systems of standardization and testing may walk out
So spirit is both the highest "level" in the holarchy, but it's also the paper on which the entire holarchy is written. It's the highest rung in the ladder, but it's also the wood out of which the entire ladder is made.Ken Wilber Ken's Sayings By Ken Wilber: So spirit is both the highest "level" in the holarchy, but it's also the paper

pg. 58. As a kid, I always assumed the know-it-alls on Jeopardy! were obviously the smartest people in America. If you were smart, that's how you showed it: by knowing all your state flowers and kings of Saxony. But what if Rob's right and that's a different, much shallower kind of intelligence? Is my mountain of flash cards all for naught?Ken Jennings Ken's Sayings By Ken Jennings: pg. 58. As a kid, I always assumed the know-it-alls on Jeopardy! were obviously the
But it also taught me that it is easier to overcome people's judgments than to overcome our own self-judgment, the fear we internalize.Ken Robinson Ken's Sayings By Ken Robinson: But it also taught me that it is easier to overcome people's judgments than to
If you're talking about mugging little old ladies, you don't say, 'What's our target for the rate of mugging little old ladies?' You say, 'Mugging little old ladies is bad, and we're going to try to eliminate it.' You recognize you might not be a hundred percent successful, but your goal is to eliminate the mugging of little old ladies. And I think we need to eventually come around to looking at carbon dioxide emissions the same way.Ken Caldeira Ken's Sayings By Ken Caldeira: If you're talking about mugging little old ladies, you don't say, 'What's our target for
The fact is five months ago this was an issue that people weren't really talking that much about. Because of the president's leadership, because he's brought it to people's attention, it's now a top issue.Ken Mehlman Ken's Sayings By Ken Mehlman: The fact is five months ago this was an issue that people weren't really talking
The heart is a map of the world, did you know that?" "I don't even know what it means," he said. "I saw a medieval map once. It showed the earth as a flat disc with Jerusalem in the center. Rome was bigger than Africa, and America was not even shown, of course. The heart is that kind of map. The self is in the middle and everything else is out of proportion. You draw the friends of your youth large, then later it's impossible to rescale them when other more important people need to be added. Anyone who has done you wrong is shown too big, and so is anyone you loved.Ken Follett Ken's Sayings By Ken Follett: The heart is a map of the world, did you know that?" "I don't even

I love you, but I hate your overeating" doesn't help a marriage. It's not helpful because hatred is a powerful emotion (a posture, really) that is not easy to wield or maintain carefully. Hatred is more a bludgeon than a scalpel. Our ability to distinguish sin from sinner, especially in others, is so limited, so vulnerable to our own unexamined subjectivity.Ken Wilson Ken's Sayings By Ken Wilson: I love you, but I hate your overeating" doesn't help a marriage.

Mam kissed Ethel and said: "I'm glad to see you settled at last, anyway," That word ANYWAY carried a lot of baggage, Ethel thought. It meant: "Congratulations, even though you're a fallen woman, and you've got an illegitmate child whose father no one knows, and you're marrying a Jew, and living in London, which is the same as Sodom and Gomorrah." But Ethel accepted Mam's qualified blessing and vowed never to say such things to her own child.Ken Follett Ken's Sayings By Ken Follett: Mam kissed Ethel and said: "I'm glad to see you settled at last, anyway," That

I guess there are people who are like, 'Here's one thing, and I'm gonna do it,' but I can't. I don't have the capacity to have that singular focus.

Growing up in Northern Ontario provided me with a strong affinity for the natural environment that was so eloquently responded to by Tom Thomson and his colleagues. The concept of this painting grew out of a number of forays into Algonquin over the years. From its conception I intended Algonquin to be a subtle tribute to Tom Thomson. But I also wanted it to be a response to the natural beauty that so typifies the grandeur of Ontario's first provincial park.Ken Danby Ken's Sayings By Ken Danby: Growing up in Northern Ontario provided me with a strong affinity for the natural environment
