At this time, Snowden, a thirty-one-year-old man without a country, remains in Russia under temporary asylum, recently joined by his girlfriend, regularly interviewed by visiting reporters, and broadcasting his story and viewpoints to audiences worldwide over the Internet. His residence permit recently was extended for three more years, as he negotiates safe harbor in other countries, evading extradition and facing an indictment in the United States for espionage and theft of government property for which he faces thirty years in prison. Reviled for recklessness and praised for self-sacrifice, his actions already have generated the beginnings of reforms.Ronald Goldfarb Reviled Sayings By Ronald Goldfarb: At this time, Snowden, a thirty-one-year-old man without a country, remains in Russia under temporary

Accordingly, it must and dare not be considered a trifling matter but a most serious one to seek counsel against this and to save our souls from the Jews, that is, from the devil and from eternal death. My advice, as I said earlier, is:
First, that their synagogues be burned down, and that all who are able toss in sulphur and pitch; it would be good if someone could also throw in some hellfire. That would demonstrate to God our serious resolve and be evidence to all the world that it was in ignorance that we tolerated such houses, in which the Jews have reviled God, our dear Creator and Father, and his Son most shamefully up till now but that we have now given them their due reward.
Martin Luther Reviled Sayings By Martin Luther: Accordingly, it must and dare not be considered a trifling matter but a most serious

When the Gauls laid waste Rome, they found the senators clothed in their robes, and seated in stern tranquillity in their curule chairs; in this manner they suffered death without resistance or supplication. Such conduct was in them applauded as noble and magnanimous; in the hapless Indians it was reviled as both obstinate and sullen. How truly are we the dupes of show and circumstances! How different is virtue, clothed in purple and enthroned in state, from virtue, naked and destitute, and perishing obscurely in a wilderness.Washington Irving Reviled Sayings By Washington Irving: When the Gauls laid waste Rome, they found the senators clothed in their robes, and
It seldom happens that a man, though extolled as a saint, is really without blemish; or that another, though reviled as a devil, is really without humanity.Fanny Burney Reviled Sayings By Fanny Burney: It seldom happens that a man, though extolled as a saint, is really without blemish;

Polls indicate

That is the American experiment. An ethnic group arriving on America's shores, to be reviled and hazed, living in squalor, or if they are lucky Squalor Heights, working hard to give their children or grandchildren the opportunity to sh*t on the next group landing on our shores.Jon Stewart Reviled Sayings By Jon Stewart: That is the American experiment.

Yet, still, the company
Therefore, I bind these lies and slanderous accusations to my person as an ornament; it belongs to my Christian profession to be vilified, slandered, reproached and reviled, and since all this is nothing but that, as God and my conscience testify, I rejoice in being reproached for Christ's sake.John Bunyan Reviled Sayings By John Bunyan: Therefore, I bind these lies and slanderous accusations to my person as an ornament; it

The father and mother themselves talk before the children in the most disparaging way about the teacher and the school and they are much more inclined to insult the teachers than to put their offspring across the knee and knock sound reason into him. What the little fellow hears at home does not tend to increase respect for his human surroundings. Here nothing good is said of human nature as a whole and every institution, from the school to the government, is reviled. Whether religion and morals are concerned or the State and the social order, it is all the same; they are all scoffed at. When the young lad leaves school, at the age of fourteen, it would be difficult to say what are the most striking features of his character, incredible ignorance in so far as real knowledge is concerned or cynical impudence combined with an attitude towards morality which is really startling at so young an age.Adolf Hitler Reviled Sayings By Adolf Hitler: The father and mother themselves talk before the children in the most disparaging way about
Blair's best-remembered legacies, goes beyond the trouble and money wasted on it. The disdain Britons reserve for politicians is fuelled by doubts about their efficacy as well as their motives, and the ban invites both. Many rural folk consider it malicious; semi-interested townies tend to approve of it, which is why it may never be repealed, but must also note the ineptitude it represents. That is bad for politicians of all stripes; and the Labour crusaders responsible for the mess should reflect on it. In banning hunting they thought to weaken a reviled establishment, and so they have; but the establishment in question, it turns out, includes themselves.Anonymous Reviled Sayings By Anonymous: Blair's best-remembered legacies, goes beyond the trouble and money wasted on it. The disdain Britons
Although the human heart is selfish and arrogant, so many struggle against their selfishness and learn humility; because of them, as long as there is life, there is hope that beauty lost can be rediscovered, that what has been reviled can be redeemed.Dean Koontz Reviled Sayings By Dean Koontz: Although the human heart is selfish and arrogant, so many struggle against their selfishness and

Did you realize that much of the original Bible included chapters of Gnostic wisdom?" Ambrose said. "They were purged from the King James Version, many of them lost and destroyed. Lost wisdom destroyed out of fear and narrow-mindedness. They were misunderstood, reviled, much like your own Mormon texts, as not fitting with the clockwork view of the universe as presented by the lying god's groveling servants.R.S. Belcher Reviled Sayings By R.S. Belcher: Did you realize that much of the original Bible included chapters of Gnostic wisdom?" Ambrose

I would tell him how he almost made us lose interest in passion by his obsession with the gestures empty of their emotions, and how we reviled him, because he almost caused us to take vows of chastity, because what he wanted us to exclude was our own aphrodisiac - poetry.Anais Nin Reviled Sayings By Anais Nin: I would tell him how he almost made us lose interest in passion by his
Damn you!" he reviled her, "damn you for your physical charms!Jessica Steele Reviled Sayings By Jessica Steele: Damn you!" he reviled her, "damn you for your physical charms!
Ever reviled, accursed, ne'er understood,
Thou art the grisly terror of our age.

"Wreck of all order," cry the multitude,
"Art thou, & war & murder's endless rage."

0, let them cry. To them that ne'er have striven
The 'truth that lies behind a word to find,

To them the word's right meaning was not given.
They shall continue blind among the blind.

But thou, O word, so clear, so strong, so true,
Thou sayest all which I for goal have taken.

I give thee to the future! Thine secure
When each at least unto himself shall waken.

Comes it in sunshine? In the tempest's thrill?
I cannot tell - but it the earth shall see!

I am an Anarchist! Wherefore I will
Not rule, & also ruled I will not be!
John Henry Mackay Reviled Sayings By John Henry Mackay: Ever reviled, accursed, ne'er understood,Thou art the grisly terror of our age."Wreck of all order,"
Just as the England football manager starts with bells and flags and balloons and ends up reviled, so do prime ministers. Tony Blair - is there anyone more despised now? Gordon Brown - all right, nobody voted for him but, you know ... just think of any of them. Margaret Thatcher. John Major. Steve McLaren. Fabio Capello.Terry Wogan Reviled Sayings By Terry Wogan: Just as the England football manager starts with bells and flags and balloons and ends

Did you know the name Dorothy translates as "squandered opportunity"?Bill Willingham Reviled Sayings By Bill Willingham: Only silly Dorothys arrive in a magical land and want to go home. You don't
The Rakshasa," said Percy pedantically, "are a different breed altogether from our vampires. Much in the same way that poodles and dachshunds are different breeds of dog. Rakshasas are reviled in India. Their position as tax collectors is an attempts by the crown to integrate them in a more progressive and mundane manner."
Rue said, "Oh, how logical. Because we all know ordaining someone as a tax collector is the surest way to get them accepted by society.
Gail Carriger Reviled Sayings By Gail Carriger: The Rakshasa," said Percy pedantically, "are a different breed altogether from our vampires. Much in
in seeking only to stay upright, you fall, are banished then cursed and reviled, condemned to wander a continent you don't even know where you're going, only when you're expected, which is every Friday at sundown though your calendars were never coordinated and what you always thought had been west was really only a left turn taken with your back to the north, in haste and with little sleep, then upon your forehead, the development of a worrying mark.Joshua Cohen Reviled Sayings By Joshua Cohen: in seeking only to stay upright, you fall, are banished then cursed and reviled, condemned
He thought back to the first moment in Hong Kong when he had wanted her and recoiled. That, perhaps, was when his poles had shifted. Missing the small signs, focused on other aims, he had reviled himself for wayward urges, mistaking them as signs of his own weakness. Had he realized then that she was well worth wanting, he might have found the courage to do what came to her so naturally: to look around a locked room, and see opportunities worth breaking windows for.Meredith Duran Reviled Sayings By Meredith Duran: He thought back to the first moment in Hong Kong when he had wanted her
Society is a long series of uprising ridges, which from the first to the last offer no valley of repose. Whenever you take your stand, you are looked down upon by those above you, and reviled and pelted by those below you. Every creature you see is a farthing Sisyphus, pushing his little stone up some Liliputian mole-hill. This is our world.Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton Reviled Sayings By Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton: Society is a long series of uprising ridges, which from the first to the last
There remains an experience of incomparable value ... to see the great events of world history from below; from the perspective of the outcast, the suspects, the maltreated, the powerless, the oppressed, the reviled
in short, from the perspective of those who suffer ... to look with new eyes on matters great and small.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Reviled Sayings By Dietrich Bonhoeffer: There remains an experience of incomparable value ... to see the great events of world
What was once justified as sanctioned by God is now properly reviled as an unconscionable violation of human rights.Hillary Clinton Reviled Sayings By Hillary Clinton: What was once justified as sanctioned by God is now properly reviled as an unconscionable
Kenneth was a sitting duck. In fewer than three years he would kneel alone in this very room, on the exact spot where he now stood, emptying the contents of his desk into cardboard boxes from the liquor store while his gaunt bitter wife reviled him in the Goldbergs' living room and choked the Goldbergs' big brass ashtray with with unfiltered cigarette butts, and if anyone were then to ask him for the secret of a happy life, he would answer: Stasis.Jincy Willett Reviled Sayings By Jincy Willett: Kenneth was a sitting duck. In fewer than three years he would kneel alone in
I suggest this passage from the German "philosopher" (this passage was detected, translated, and reviled by Karl Popper): Sound is the change in the specific condition of segregation of the material parts, and in the negation of this condition; merely an abstract or an ideal ideality, as it were, of that specification. But this change, accordingly, is itself immediately the negation of the material specific subsistence; which is, therefore, real ideality of specific gravity and cohesion, i.e. - heat. The heating up of sounding bodies, just as of beaten and or rubbed ones, is the appearance of heat, originating conceptually together with sound. Even a Monte Carlo engine could not sound as random as the great philosophical master thinker (it would take plenty of sample runs to get the mixture of "heat" and "sound." People call that philosophy and frequently finance it with taxpayer subsidies!Nassim Nicholas Taleb Reviled Sayings By Nassim Nicholas Taleb: I suggest this passage from the German "philosopher" (this passage was detected, translated, and reviled
Will Jehovah go down and be perfect? Not even one tiny sin? Think about that, Ammon. Is it possible? He will be spit upon and reviled, mocked, and hated by far lesser men, and yet he will never, not once, have an uncharitable thought, not a single pang of regret or ounce of self-pity. He will be hated and beaten, like some mongrel dog, while lesser men pass their judgment - and you believe he will never, not once, feel any anger or wish for revenge? Remember, it won't be good enough that he do the right thing. He can't even feel the wrong way, for that too is a sin. He must have perfect control over his body, his will, and his mind. He can't experience a moment of selfish anger or miss a single opportunity to serve. He can't entertain one self-serving notion, unkind thought, or harsh word! Not even one sin! What can do that, I ask?Chris Stewart Reviled Sayings By Chris Stewart: Will Jehovah go down and be perfect? Not even one tiny sin? Think about that,
In Vietnam, our soldiers came back and they were reviled as baby killers, in shame and humiliation. It isn't happening now, but I will tell you, there has never been an American army as violent and murderous as our army has been in Iraq.Seymour Hersh Reviled Sayings By Seymour Hersh: In Vietnam, our soldiers came back and they were reviled as baby killers, in shame
For telling a good and incisive religious joke, you should be praised. For telling a bad one, you should be ridiculed and reviled. The idea that you could be prosecuted for the telling of either is quite fantastic.Rowan Atkinson Reviled Sayings By Rowan Atkinson: For telling a good and incisive religious joke, you should be praised. For telling a

Truman left in the middle of an unpopular war, a war of choice. Truman didn't have to go into South Korea. And he was reviled and ridiculed for the stalemate that resulted. Now, he's seen as one of the great presidents of the 20th century.Charles Krauthammer Reviled Sayings By Charles Krauthammer: Truman left in the middle of an unpopular war, a war of choice. Truman didn't
A soldier fought better when he knew that he was not only needed, but appreciated back home. There were few things as degrading to man than to come home to the people you served, only to be shunned and reviled by them.Evan Currie Reviled Sayings By Evan Currie: A soldier fought better when he knew that he was not only needed, but appreciated
Hierarchy is is much reviled in the present day.Mary Douglas Reviled Sayings By Mary Douglas: Hierarchy is is much reviled in the present day.
If the politicization of art and education represents one large part of the counterculture's legacy, the coarsening of feeling and sensibility is another. No phenomenon has done more to advance this coarsening than rock music. It is impossible to exaggerate the importance of rock music to the agenda of the cultural revolution. It is also impossible to overstate its soul-deadening destructiveness. The most reviled part of Allan Bloom's book The Closing of the American Mind was his chapter criticizing the effects of rock. But Bloom was right in insisting that rock music is a potent weapon in the arsenal of emotional anarchy. The triumph of rock was not only an aesthetic disaster of giant proportions: it was also a moral disaster whose effects are nearly impossible to calculate precisely because they are so pervasive.Roger Kimball Reviled Sayings By Roger Kimball: If the politicization of art and education represents one large part of the counterculture's legacy,
When a film is reviled, you open a film and people say "Oh, it's the stupidest thing, it's the worst movie." You think: oh, nobody's going to ever speak to you again. But, it doesn't happen. Nobody cares. You know, they read it and they say "Oh, they hated your film." You care, at the time. But they don't. Nobody else cares.Woody Allen Reviled Sayings By Woody Allen: When a film is reviled, you open a film and people say "Oh, it's the
It dropped so low in my regard
I heard it hit the ground,
And go to pieces on the stones
At bottom of my mind;
Yet blamed the fate that fractured, less
Than I reviled myself
For entertaining plated wares
Upon my silver shelf.
Emily Dickinson Reviled Sayings By Emily Dickinson: It dropped so low in my regardI heard it hit the ground,And go to pieces
As you say, I am honoured and famous and rich. But as I have to do all the hard work, and suffer an increasing multitude of fools gladly, it does not feel any better than being reviled, infamous and poor, as I used to be.George Bernard Shaw Reviled Sayings By George Bernard Shaw: As you say, I am honoured and famous and rich. But as I have to
He sat there, the master, the artist who had achieved his dignity, the author of "A Wretched Man," who, employing a form of exemplary purity, had renounced bohemianism and the dismal chasm, had broken with the abyss and reviled all vileness. He had risen high, transcending his knowledge and outgrowing all irony, he had adjusted his responsibilities toward the public and its trust in him-he, whose fame was official, whose name was ennobled, and whose style was a model for schoolboys.Thomas Mann Reviled Sayings By Thomas Mann: He sat there, the master, the artist who had achieved his dignity, the author of

Here is how the harmful becomes profitable: That which yesterday was reviled today ends up in Urban Outfitters. The critic Rebecca Solnit has summarized it this way: 'Eat your heart out on a plastic tray,' say the Sex Pistols. Now, we know where to buy the tray and what the heart tastes like.Josh Kun Reviled Sayings By Josh Kun: Here is how the harmful becomes profitable: That which yesterday was reviled today ends up

If the numbers mean anything, they tell us that vastly more life is left in the reviled internal-combustion engine than any of the blue-state lefties could imagine. First, that madman Bush wins, and now this news. How depressing.Brock Yates Reviled Sayings By Brock Yates: If the numbers mean anything, they tell us that vastly more life is left in
I shook my head, smiling in spite of myself, and gave him a kiss on the cheek. Adrian. My husband. If anyone had told me a year ago that I'd be married, I would've said they were joking. If they'd told me I'd be married to a vampire, I would've said they were delusional. Looking at Adrian now, I felt a surge of love well up within me, despite our earlier tension. I could no longer imagine a life without him in it. It was impossible. Could I imagine a life with him that didn't involve us being trapped in a suite of rooms with his mother while both our people reviled us and made plans against us? Definitely. There were any number of futures I'd love to have for us, but his was our current path until something spectacular happened. Outside, the Court's gates, my people wanted to imprison me. Inside them, his people wanted to assault him. At least in this suite, we were safe. Most importantly, we were together.Richelle Mead Reviled Sayings By Richelle Mead: I shook my head, smiling in spite of myself, and gave him a kiss on
