Solicitude for material things distracts the soul and divides it. The devil seizes the divided soul and drags it to hell.Anthony Solicitude Sayings By Anthony: Solicitude for material things distracts the soul and divides it. The devil seizes the divided
Every man has frequent grievances which only the solicitude of friendship will discover and remedy, and which would remain for ever unheeded in the mighty heap of human calamity, were it only surveyed by the eye of general benevolence equally attentive to every misery.Samuel Johnson Solicitude Sayings By Samuel Johnson: Every man has frequent grievances which only the solicitude of friendship will discover and remedy,
I have fought a long battle with slavery; and I confess my solicitude when I see any thing that looks like concession to it. It is not enough to show me that a measure is expedient: you must show me also that it is right. Ah, sir, can any thing be expedient which is not right? From the beginning of our history the country has been afflicted with compromise. It is by compromise that human rights have been abandoned. I insist that this shall cease. The country needs repose after all its trials: it deserves repose. And repose can only be found in everlasting principles. It cannot be found by inserting in your constitution the disfranchisement of a race.Charles Sumner Solicitude Sayings By Charles Sumner: I have fought a long battle with slavery; and I confess my solicitude when I
I shall always look back on our theatricals with exquisite pleasure. There was such an animation, such a spirit diffused! Every body felt it. We were all alive. There was employment, hope, solicitude, bustle, for every hour of the day. Always some little objection, some little doubt, some little anxiety to be got over. I never was happier.Jane Austen Solicitude Sayings By Jane Austen: I shall always look back on our theatricals with exquisite pleasure. There was such an
Formerly irreconcilable enemies, morality and happiness have fused; today, it is being unhappy that is immoral; the superego has moved into the citadel of felicity and governs it with an iron hand. The end of culpability comes at the price of endless torment. Pleasure is no longer a promise but a problem. The idea of full satisfaction has replaced that of constraint, and it has in turn become a requirement that full satisfaction be achieved. Each of us is responsible for being in good shape, in a good mood, and no longer has to renounce anything; instead, we have to adapt to a process of improvement that rejects any resistance to change. Order has ceased to condemn us or deprive us; now it shows us, with maternal solicitude, how to fulfill ourselves.Pascal Bruckner Solicitude Sayings By Pascal Bruckner: Formerly irreconcilable enemies, morality and happiness have fused; today, it is being unhappy that is
How much that the world calls selfishness is only generosity with narrow walls,
a too exclusive solicitude to maintain a wife in luxury, or make one's children rich.
Thomas Wentworth Higginson Solicitude Sayings By Thomas Wentworth Higginson: How much that the world calls selfishness is only generosity with narrow walls,a too exclusive
When one is anxious only to live, he easily, in this solicitude, forgets the enjoyment of life. If his only concern is for life, and he thinks "if I only have my dear life," he does not apply his full strength to using, i. e., enjoying, life.Max Stirner Solicitude Sayings By Max Stirner: When one is anxious only to live, he easily, in this solicitude, forgets the enjoyment
You've tugged on your bonnet strings five times in this conversation already. Why wear one, if it's so uncomfortable? Have you any reason for it, other than that it is what everyone else does?"
"I brown terribly in the sunlight. I'll develop freckles."
"Oh no,. That sounds awful." He spoke with exaggerated solicitude, but he leaned down from his horse until his nose was a bare foot from hers. "Freckles. And what do those dastardly spots portend? Are freckled people thrown in prison? Pilloried? Covered in tar and sprinkled with tiny little down feathers?
Courtney Milan Solicitude Sayings By Courtney Milan: You've tugged on your bonnet strings five times in this conversation already. Why wear one,
When the humanity of others who were previously invisible becomes apparent to us for the first time, I think it is because we have noticed something particular in them. By contrast, egalitarian empathy, projected from afar and without discrimination, is more principled than attentive. It is content to posit rather than to see the humanity of its beneficiaries. But the one who is on the receiving end of such empathy wants something more than to be recognized generically. He wants to be seen as an individual, and recognized as worthy on the same grounds on which he has striven to be worthy, indeed superior, by cultivating some particular excellence or skill. We all strive for distinction, and I believe that to honor another person is to honor this aspiring core of him. I can do this by allowing myself to respond in kind, and experience the concrete difference between him and me. This may call for silent deference on my part, as opposed to chummy liberal solicitude.Matthew B. Crawford Solicitude Sayings By Matthew B. Crawford: When the humanity of others who were previously invisible becomes apparent to us for the
Whoever will cultivate their own mind will find full employment. Every virtue does not only require great care in the planting, but as much daily solicitude in cherishing as exotic fruits and flowers; the vices and passions (which I am afraid are the natural product of the soil) demand perpetual weeding. Add to this the search after knowledge ... and the longest life is too short.Mary Wortley Montagu Solicitude Sayings By Mary Wortley Montagu: Whoever will cultivate their own mind will find full employment. Every virtue does not only

Dress is at all times a frivolous distinction, and excessive solicitude about it often destroys its own aim.Jane Austen Solicitude Sayings By Jane Austen: Dress is at all times a frivolous distinction, and excessive solicitude about it often destroys
For children mastery entails struggle. This means they must be permitted to struggle. If parents inappropriately step in to "help"-out of impatience or solicitude-they sabotage important learning. Among other things, the child is unlikely to discover the advantages of perseverance and self-discipline.Nathaniel Branden Solicitude Sayings By Nathaniel Branden: For children mastery entails struggle. This means they must be permitted to struggle. If parents
It is no hard matter to get children; but after they are born, then begins the trouble, solicitude, and care rightly to train, principle, and bring them up.Michel De Montaigne Solicitude Sayings By Michel De Montaigne: It is no hard matter to get children; but after they are born, then begins
Our Pastoral solicitude induces us to earnestly protect and preserve in everything and especially in the sacred rites of the Church the best and old norm.Pope Clement VIII Solicitude Sayings By Pope Clement VIII: Our Pastoral solicitude induces us to earnestly protect and preserve in everything and especially in
In all we do, almost the first thing we think about is, what will people say; and nearly half the troubles and bothers of life may be traced to our anxiety on this score; it is the anxiety which is at the bottom of all that feeling of self-importance, which is so often mortified because it is so very morbidly sensitive. It is solicitude about what others will say that underlies all our vanity and pretension, yes, and all our show and swagger too. Without it, there would not be a tenth part of the luxury which exists.Arthur Schopenhauer Solicitude Sayings By Arthur Schopenhauer: In all we do, almost the first thing we think about is, what will people
The mind that is cheerful in its present state, will be averse to all solicitude as to the future, and will meet the bitter occurrences of life with a placid smile.Horace Solicitude Sayings By Horace: The mind that is cheerful in its present state, will be averse to all solicitude
An assembly of the states, a court of justice, shows nothing so serious and grave as a table of gamesters playing very high; a melancholy solicitude clouds their looks; envy and rancor agitate their minds while the meeting lasts, without regard to friendship, alliances, birth or distinctions.Jean De La Bruyere Solicitude Sayings By Jean De La Bruyere: An assembly of the states, a court of justice, shows nothing so serious and grave
The Church must never be satisfied with the ranks of those whom she has reached at a certain point or say that others are fine as they are: Muslims, Hindus and so forth. The Church can never retreat comfortably to within the limits of her own environment. She is charged with universal solicitude; she must be concerned with and for one and all ... We must ... as the Lord says - go out ever anew 'to the highways and hedges' (Luke 14:23), to deliver God's invitation to his banquet also to those who have so far heard nothing or have not been stirred within.Pope Benedict XVI Solicitude Sayings By Pope Benedict XVI: The Church must never be satisfied with the ranks of those whom she has reached
Every man to himself is the centre of the whole world; - the axle on which it all turns. All knowledge is but his own perception of the things around him. All love, and care for others, and solicitude for the world's welfare, are but his own feelings as to the world's wants and the world's merits.Anthony Trollope Solicitude Sayings By Anthony Trollope: Every man to himself is the centre of the whole world; - the axle on
I am capable of affection for those who reflect my own world. How much of my solicitude for other human beings is real and honest, how much is a feigned lacquer painted on by society, I do not know.Sylvia Plath Solicitude Sayings By Sylvia Plath: I am capable of affection for those who reflect my own world. How much of
There are five dangerous faults which may affect a general:
(1) Recklessness, which leads to destruction;
(2) cowardice, which leads to capture;
(3) a hasty temper, which can be provoked by insults;
(4) a delicacy of honor which is sensitive to shame;
(5) over-solicitude for his men, which exposes him to worry and trouble.
Sun Tzu Solicitude Sayings By Sun Tzu: There are five dangerous faults which may affect a general:(1) Recklessness, which leads to destruction;(2)
O Jesus, if I but considered attentively your immense solicitude for me, how greatly should I not excel in every virtue? Pardon me, O Jesus, so much carelessness, pardon such great ignorance. My God, Jesus my Love, Increated Goodness, what would have become of me if you had not drawn me to yourself? Open your heart to me, open to me your sacramental breast; I open mine to you.Gemma Galgani Solicitude Sayings By Gemma Galgani: O Jesus, if I but considered attentively your immense solicitude for me, how greatly should
Neither he nor she had had any such adventure before and neither was conscious of any incongruity. Little by little he entangled his thoughts with hers. He lent her books, provided her with ideas, shared his intellectual life with her. She listened to all.
Sometimes in return for his theories, she gave out some fact of her own life. With almost maternal solicitude, she urged him to let his nature open to the full; she became his confessor.
James Joyce Solicitude Sayings By James Joyce: Neither he nor she had had any such adventure before and neither was conscious of
One need only admit the premise that public peace of mind is in danger and any action finds justification. All the horrors of the Reign of Terror in France were based entirely on solicitude for public tranquillity.Leo Tolstoy Solicitude Sayings By Leo Tolstoy: One need only admit the premise that public peace of mind is in danger and
Speak," said my Master, "and be not afraid Of speaking, but speak out, and say to him What he demands with such solicitude." Whence I: "Thou peradventure marvellest, O antique spirit, at the smile I gave; But I will have more wonder seize upon thee. This one, who guides on high these eyes of mine, Is that Virgilius, from whom thou didst learn To sing aloud of men and of the Gods. If other cause thou to my smile imputedst, Abandon it as false, and trust it was Those words which thou hast spoken concerning him." Already he was stooping to embrace My Teacher's feet; but he said to him: "Brother, Do not; for shade thou art, and shade beholdest." And he uprising: "Now canst thou the sum Of love which warms me to thee comprehend, When this our vanity I disremember, Treating a shadow as substantial thing.Dante Alighieri Solicitude Sayings By Dante Alighieri: Speak," said my Master, "and be not afraid Of speaking, but speak out, and say
Carol's liveliest interest was in her walks with the baby. Hugh wanted to know what the box-elder tree said, and what the Ford garage said, and what the big cloud said, and she told him, with a feeling that she was not in the least making up stories, but discovering the souls of things. They had an especial fondness for the hitching-post in front of the mill. It was a brown post, stout and agreeable; the smooth leg of it held the sunlight, while its neck, grooved by hitching-straps, tickled one's fingers. Carol had never been awake to the earth except as a show of changing color and great satisfying masses; she had lived in people and in ideas about having ideas; but Hugh's questions made her attentive to the comedies of sparrows, robins, blue jays, yellowhammers; she regained her pleasure in the arching flight of swallows, and added to it a solicitude about their nests and family squabbles.Sinclair Lewis Solicitude Sayings By Sinclair Lewis: Carol's liveliest interest was in her walks with the baby. Hugh wanted to know what
Men of means have much to fear. Those with none know only bitterness. If you entrust yourself to the care of others you will be owned by them. If you care for others you will be enslaved by your own solicitude. If you conform to the world it will bind you hand and foot. If you do not, then it will think you mad. And so the question, where should we live? And how? Where to find a place to rest a while? And how to bring even short-lived peace to our hearts?Kamo No Chomei Solicitude Sayings By Kamo No Chomei: Men of means have much to fear. Those with none know only bitterness. If you
Instead of indulging in jealousy, greed, in relishing themselves, there are men who keep their hearts alert to the stillness in which time rolls on and leaves us behind ... those who are open to the wonder will not miss it. Faith is found in solicitude for faith, in an inner care for the wonder that is everywhere.Abraham Joshua Heschel Solicitude Sayings By Abraham Joshua Heschel: Instead of indulging in jealousy, greed, in relishing themselves, there are men who keep their
If people would but provide for eternity with the same solicitude and real care as they do for this life, they could not fail of heaven.John Tillotson Solicitude Sayings By John Tillotson: If people would but provide for eternity with the same solicitude and real care as
The search of our future being is but a needless, anxious, and haste to be knowing, sooner than we can, what, without all this solicitude, we shall know a little later.Alexander Pope Solicitude Sayings By Alexander Pope: The search of our future being is but a needless, anxious, and haste to be
The executive power in our government is not the only, perhaps not even the principal, object of my solicitude. The tyranny of the legislature is really the danger most to be feared, and will continue to be so for many years to come. The tyranny of the executive power will come in its turn, but at a more distant period.Thomas Jefferson Solicitude Sayings By Thomas Jefferson: The executive power in our government is not the only, perhaps not even the principal,
Towards evening, they wound down precipices, black with forest of cypress, pine and cedar, into a glen so savage and secluded, that, if Solicitude ever had local habitation, this might have been "her place of dearest residenceAnn Radcliffe Solicitude Sayings By Ann Radcliffe: Towards evening, they wound down precipices, black with forest of cypress, pine and cedar, into
In consequence of the film of familiarity and selfish solicitude, we have eyes yet see not, ears that hear not, and hearts that neither feel nor understand.Samuel Taylor Coleridge Solicitude Sayings By Samuel Taylor Coleridge: In consequence of the film of familiarity and selfish solicitude, we have eyes yet see
Many bad golfers marry, feeling that a wife's loving solicitude may improve their game. But they are rugged, thick-skinned men, not sensitive and introspective. It is one of the chief merits of golf that non-success at the game induces a certain amount of decent humilty, which keeps a man from pluming himself too much on any petty triumphs he may achieve in other walks of life.P.G. Wodehouse Solicitude Sayings By P.G. Wodehouse: Many bad golfers marry, feeling that a wife's loving solicitude may improve their game. But
Men have solicitude about fame; and the greater share they have of it, the more afraid they are of losing it.Samuel Johnson Solicitude Sayings By Samuel Johnson: Men have solicitude about fame; and the greater share they have of it, the more
In these days Melissa's absorbed and provoking gentleness had all the qualities of a rediscovered youth. Her long uncertain fingers - I used to feel them moving over my face when she thought I slept, as if to memorize the happiness we had shared. In her there was a pliancy, a resilience which was Oriental - a passion to serve. My shabby clothes - the way she picked up a dirty shirt seemed to engulf it with an overflowing solicitude; in the morning I found my razor beautifully cleaned and even the toothpaste laid upon the brush in readiness. Her care for me was a goad, provoking me to give my life some sort of shape and style that might match the simplicity of hers. Of her experiences in love she would never speak, turning from them with a weariness and distaste which suggested that they had been born of necessity rather than desire. She paid me the comlpiment of saying: "For the first time I am not afraid to be light-headed or foolish with a man".Lawrence Durrell Solicitude Sayings By Lawrence Durrell: In these days Melissa's absorbed and provoking gentleness had all the qualities of a rediscovered
Mutual respect implies discretion and reserve even in love itself; it means preserving as much liberty as possible to those whose life we share. We must distrust our instinct of intervention, for the desire to make one's own will prevail is often disguised under the mask of solicitude.Henri Frederic Amiel Solicitude Sayings By Henri Frederic Amiel: Mutual respect implies discretion and reserve even in love itself; it means preserving as much
I saw the way my eyes looked then, saw them with the eyes I have now, and I heard my cry once more, the timbre of my voice, the extreme politeness of a girl of eight who shouts after a boy of eight to remind him not to forget his eraser and yet can't call him by his name, James, or Crawford, the way we do in school, and opts, consciously or unconsciously, for the diminutive Jimmy, which indicates fondness, a verbal fondness, a personal fondness, since only she, in that world-encompassing instant, calls him that, a name that somehow casts in a new light the fondness or solicitude implicit in the gesture of warning him he's forgotten something, don't forget your eraser, or your pencil, though in the end it's simply an expression, verbally poor or verbally rich, of happiness.Roberto Bolano Solicitude Sayings By Roberto Bolano: I saw the way my eyes looked then, saw them with the eyes I have
The Angels are the dispensers and administrators of the Divine beneficence toward us. They regard our safety, undertake our defense, direct our ways, and exercise a constant solicitude that no evil befall us.John Calvin Solicitude Sayings By John Calvin: The Angels are the dispensers and administrators of the Divine beneficence toward us. They regard
Sex endows the individual with a dumb and powerful instinct, which carries his body and soul continually towards another, makes it one of the dearest employments of his life to select and pursue a companion, and joins to possession the keenest pleasure, to rivalry the fiercest rage, and to solicitude an eternal melancholy. What more could be needed to suffuse the world with the deepest meaning and beauty?George Santayana Solicitude Sayings By George Santayana: Sex endows the individual with a dumb and powerful instinct, which carries his body and
We are easily comforted for the misfortunes of our friends, when those misfortunes give us an occasion of expressing our affection and solicitude.Francois De La Rochefoucauld Solicitude Sayings By Francois De La Rochefoucauld: We are easily comforted for the misfortunes of our friends, when those misfortunes give us

Elinor, in spite of every occasional doubt of Willoughby's constancy, could not witness the rapture of delightful expectation which filled the whole soul and beamed in the eyes of Marianne, without feeling how blank was her own prospect, how cheerless her own state of mind in the comparison, and how gladly she would engage in the solicitude of Marianne's situation to have the same animating object in view, the same possibility of hope.Jane Austen Solicitude Sayings By Jane Austen: Elinor, in spite of every occasional doubt of Willoughby's constancy, could not witness the rapture
The story is that while a child named Servius Tullius lay sleeping, his head burst into flames in the sight of many. The general outcry which so great a miracle called forth brought the king and queen to the place. One of the servants fetched water to quench the fire, but was checked by the queen, who stilled the uproar and commanded that the boy should not be disturbed until he awoke of himself. Soon afterwards sleep left him, and with it disappeared the flames. Then, talking her husband aside, Tanaquil Said: 'Do you see this child whom we are bringing up in so humble a fashion? Be assured he will one day be a lamp to our dubious fortunes, and a protector to the royal house in the day of its distress. Let us therefore rear with all solicitude one who will lend high renowen to the state and to our family.' It is said that from that moment the boy began to be looked upon as a son, and to be trained in the studies by which men are inspired to bear themselves greatly.Livy Solicitude Sayings By Livy: The story is that while a child named Servius Tullius lay sleeping, his head burst

nothing good when I hear a sentence beginning in
that manner?

Continue to walk in the faith and, faithful to the mandate that has been entrusted to you, go out with solicitude and joy toward all creatures and pass on to them the gifts of salvation ... Let yourselves be guided by the Holy Spirit to be the leaven of new life, salt of the earth and light of the world.Pope Benedict XVI Solicitude Sayings By Pope Benedict XVI: Continue to walk in the faith and, faithful to the mandate that has been entrusted
The belief in a God All Powerful wise and good, is so essential to the moral order of the world and to the happiness of man, that arguments which enforce it cannot be drawn from too many sources nor adapted with too much solicitude to the different characters and capacities impressed with it.James Madison Solicitude Sayings By James Madison: The belief in a God All Powerful wise and good, is so essential to the
Shocked to learn of the serious attacks against certain areas in New York City and Washington D.C. on September 11, which caused horrendous casualty, I wish to express, on behalf of the Chinese Government and people, our deepest sympathy and solicitude to you and, through you, to the Government and people of the United States. I wish also to extend our condolences to the families of the victims. The Chinese Government has consistently condemned and rejected all forms of terrorist violence.Jiang Zemin Solicitude Sayings By Jiang Zemin: Shocked to learn of the serious attacks against certain areas in New York City and
would be terrified that she would be found out. She could be so frightened, perhaps, that she might blurt out a confession. No one was leaning on her. To a burdened conscience, silence and solicitude can be more threatening than interrogation.Ann Rule Solicitude Sayings By Ann Rule: would be terrified that she would be found out. She could be so frightened, perhaps,
In offering to you, my countrymen, these counsels of an old and affectionate friend, I dare not hope they will make the strong and lasting impression I could wish; that they will control the usual current of the passions, or prevent our nation from running the course which has hitherto marked the destiny of nations ... moderate the fury of party spirit, to warn against the mischiefs of foreign intrigue, to guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism; this hope will be a full recompense for the solicitude for your welfare, by which they have been dictated.George Washington Solicitude Sayings By George Washington: In offering to you, my countrymen, these counsels of an old and affectionate friend, I
Senators undertake to disturb us... by reminding us of the possibility of large numbers swarming from China; but the answer to all this is very obvious and very simple. If the Chinese come here, they will come for citizenship or merely for labor. If they come for citizenship, then in this desire do they give a pledge of loyalty to our institutions; and where is the peril in such vows? They are peaceful and industrious; how can their citizenship be the occasion of solicitude?Charles Sumner Solicitude Sayings By Charles Sumner: Senators undertake to disturb us... by reminding us of the possibility of large numbers swarming
Angels are the dispensers and administrators of the divine beneficence toward us.John Calvin Solicitude Sayings By John Calvin: Angels are the dispensers and administrators of the divine beneficence toward us.
Within forty years of their arrival in the Plymouth colony, the first white settlers were afraid their children had lost the dedication and religious conviction of the founding generation. Ever since, Americans have looked to the next generation not only with love and solicitude but with a good measure of anxiety, worrying whether they themselves were good parents, fearful that their children would not turn out well.Kenneth Keniston Solicitude Sayings By Kenneth Keniston: Within forty years of their arrival in the Plymouth colony, the first white settlers were

At last- I had already given up hope- he broke throught the magic wall; at last helped me; at last he said a few words. Those were the only words I heard him speak today.
'You are tiring yourself Joseph,' he said softly, his voice full of that touching friendlness and solicitude you know so well. That was all. 'You are tiring yourself Joseph.
Hermann Hesse Solicitude Sayings By Hermann Hesse: At last- I had already given up hope- he broke throught the magic wall; at
When the desire of wealth is taking hold of the heart, let us look round and see how it operates upon than whose industry or fortune has obtained it. When we find them oppressed with their own abundance, luxurious without pleasure, idle without ease, impatient and querulous in themselves, and despised or hated by the rest of mankind, we shall soon be convinced that if the real wants of our condition are satisfied, there remains little to be sought with solicitude or desired with eagerness.Samuel Johnson Solicitude Sayings By Samuel Johnson: When the desire of wealth is taking hold of the heart, let us look round
From that evening, Swann understood that the feeling which Odette had once had for him would never revive, that his hopes of happiness would not be realised now. And the days on which, by a lucky chance, she had once more shewn herself kind and loving to him, or if she had paid him any attention, he recorded those apparent and misleading signs of a slight movement on her part towards him with the same tender and sceptical solicitude, the desperate joy that people reveal who, when they are nursing a friend in the last days of an incurable malady, relate, as significant facts of infinite value: "Yesterday he went through his accounts himself, and actually corrected a mistake that we had made in adding them up; he ate an egg to-day and seemed quite to enjoy it, if he digests it properly we shall try him with a cutlet to-morrow,"
although they themselves know that these things are meaningless on the eve of an inevitable death.
Marcel Proust Solicitude Sayings By Marcel Proust: From that evening, Swann understood that the feeling which Odette had once had for him

I leave his house feeling blissed. It is not the same feeling like when you get a present from someone, you buy things you desire, or you receive good news. It is something intrinsic that stems from solicitude, which triggers your conscience to carry out something good - in my case, helping Mr Mario. That is how righteousness works. It does not only give pleasure to the receiver (of good action), but to the giver as well.Aishah Madadiy Solicitude Sayings By Aishah Madadiy: I leave his house feeling blissed. It is not the same feeling like when you
Prevailing prayer requires a tender, compassionate heart, a deep solicitude for the glory of God and the good of His people. Nehemiah wept and mourned.Arthur Wallis Solicitude Sayings By Arthur Wallis: Prevailing prayer requires a tender, compassionate heart, a deep solicitude for the glory of God
Her next solicitude was to furnish herself with a well-chosen collection of books: and this employment, which to a lover of literature, young and ardent in its pursuit, is perhaps the mind's first luxury, proved a source of entertainment so fertile and delightful that it left her nothing to wish.Fanny Burney Solicitude Sayings By Fanny Burney: Her next solicitude was to furnish herself with a well-chosen collection of books: and this
As men get on in life, they acquire a love for sincerity, and somewhat less solicitude to be lulled or amused.

Covetousness is ever attended with solicitude and anxiety.Benjamin Franklin Solicitude Sayings By Benjamin Franklin: Covetousness is ever attended with solicitude and anxiety.
So ludicrous, in fact, do these ceremonies appear to me, that I scarcely am able to govern my muscles, when I see a man start with eager, and serious solicitude to lift a handkerchief, or shut a door, when the LADY could have done it herself, had she only moved a pace or two.Mary Wollstonecraft Solicitude Sayings By Mary Wollstonecraft: So ludicrous, in fact, do these ceremonies appear to me, that I scarcely am able
Then, with the gladness which must be felt, nay, which he did not scruple to feel, having never believed Frank Churchill to be at all deserving Emma, was there so much fond solicitude, so much keen anxiety for her, that he could stay no longer. He had ridden home through the rain; and had walked up directly after dinner, to see how this sweetest and best of all creatures, faultless in spite of all her faults, bore the discovery.Jane Austen Solicitude Sayings By Jane Austen: Then, with the gladness which must be felt, nay, which he did not scruple to
To attempt to enumerate the complicated variety of mischiefs in the whole system of the social economy, which proceed from a neglect of the maxims that uphold public credit, and justify the solicitude manifested by the House on this point, would be an improper intrusion on their time and patience.Alexander Hamilton Solicitude Sayings By Alexander Hamilton: To attempt to enumerate the complicated variety of mischiefs in the whole system of the

The calendar and his glass and the solicitude of his juniors may tell a man that he is old, and he can see for himself that the world and all around him have aged, but secretly he knows that he is still a youth of eighteen or twenty. And what I have said of a man, I have said because a man is what I am. It must be even more true of a woman, to whom youth and beauty and vitality are so much more to be treasured and conserved.Gary Jennings Solicitude Sayings By Gary Jennings: The calendar and his glass and the solicitude of his juniors may tell a man
Through the years of his struggle, he had learned that an apparently causeless antagonism was not hard to deal with, but an apparently causeless solicitude was an ugly danger.Ayn Rand Solicitude Sayings By Ayn Rand: Through the years of his struggle, he had learned that an apparently causeless antagonism was
God's beneficence streams out from the morning sun, and his love looks down upon us from the starry eyes of midnight. It is his solicitude that wraps us in the air, and the pressure of his hand, so to speak, that keeps our pulses beating. O! it is a great thing to realize that the Divine Power is always working; that nature, in every valve and every artery, is full of the presence of God.Edwin Hubbel Chapin Solicitude Sayings By Edwin Hubbel Chapin: God's beneficence streams out from the morning sun, and his love looks down upon us
True conformity to the dictates of nature requires reverence for the past and solicitude for the future. 'Nature' is not simply the sensation of the passing moment; it is eternal, though we evanescent men experience only a fragment of it. We have no right to imperil the happiness of posterity by impudently tinkering with the heritage of humanity.Russell Kirk Solicitude Sayings By Russell Kirk: True conformity to the dictates of nature requires reverence for the past and solicitude for
The removal of one solicitude generally makes way for another.Jane Austen Solicitude Sayings By Jane Austen: The removal of one solicitude generally makes way for another.
My political curiosity, exclusive of my anxious solicitude for the public welfare, leads me to ask who authorized them (the framers of the Constitution) to speak the language of 'We, the People,' instead of 'We, the States'?Patrick Henry Solicitude Sayings By Patrick Henry: My political curiosity, exclusive of my anxious solicitude for the public welfare, leads me to
I am glad that the life of pandas is so dull by human standards, for our efforts at conservation have little moral value if we preserve creatures only as human ornaments; I shall be impressed when we show solicitude for warty toads and slithering worms.Stephen Jay Gould Solicitude Sayings By Stephen Jay Gould: I am glad that the life of pandas is so dull by human standards, for
When a child reaches adolescence, there is very apt to be a conflict between parents and child, since the latter considers himself to be by now quite capable of managing his own affairs, while the former are filled with parental solicitude, which is often a disguise for love of power. Parents consider, usually, that the various moral problems which arise in adolescence are peculiarly their province. The opinions they express, however, are so dogmatic that the young seldom confide in them, and usually go their own way in secret.Bertrand Russell Solicitude Sayings By Bertrand Russell: When a child reaches adolescence, there is very apt to be a conflict between parents
Reverence for life is more than solicitude or sensitivity for life. It is a sense of the whole, a capacity for inspired response, a respect for the intricate universe of individual life. It is the supreme awareness of awareness itself.Norman Cousins Solicitude Sayings By Norman Cousins: Reverence for life is more than solicitude or sensitivity for life. It is a sense
[Nietzsche] had the good manners to despise Christianity, in large part, for what it actually was
above all, for its devotion to an ethics of compassion
rather than allow himself the soothing, self-righteous fantasy that Christianity's history had been nothing but an interminable pageant of violence, tyranny, and sexual neurosis. He may have hated many Christians for their hypocrisy, but he hated Christianity itself principally on account of its enfeebling solicitude for the weak, the outcast, the infirm, and the diseased; and, because he was conscious of the historical contingency of all cultural values, he never deluded himself that humanity could do away with Christian faith while simply retaining Christian morality in some diluted form, such as liberal social conscience or innate human sympathy.

Whatever requires an undue amount of thought or trouble or involves a large expenditure of effort and causes our whole life to revolve, as it were, around solicitude for the flesh must be avoided by Christians.Saint Basil Solicitude Sayings By Saint Basil: Whatever requires an undue amount of thought or trouble or involves a large expenditure of
There is, I believe, a kind of telepathy between the condemned: a sort of intuitive recognition which can even make itself felt through the medium of the printed page. How else should I feel - without fear of appearing presumptuous, either - for this great man whom I never saw and to whom I could not have spoken, the tender, wincing, pathetic solicitude that painfully comes into being only between fellow-sufferers?Anna Kavan Solicitude Sayings By Anna Kavan: There is, I believe, a kind of telepathy between the condemned: a sort of intuitive
But the acknowledging of one God, eternal, infinite, and omnipotent, may more easily be derived, from the desire men have to know the causes of natural bodies, and their several virtues, and operations; than from the fear of what was to befall them in time to come. For he that from any effect he seeth come to pass, should reason to the next and immediate cause thereof, and from thence to the cause of that cause, and plunge himself profoundly in the pursuit of causes; shall at last come to this, that there must be, as even the heathen philosophers confessed, one first mover; that is, a first, and an eternal cause of all things; which is that which men mean by the name of God: and all this without thought of their fortune; the solicitude whereof, both inclines to fear, and hinders them from the search of the causes of other things; and thereby gives occasion of feigning of as many gods, as there be men that feign them.Christopher Hitchens Solicitude Sayings By Christopher Hitchens: But the acknowledging of one God, eternal, infinite, and omnipotent, may more easily be derived,
The genteel is a mighty catafalque of service-with-a-smile and flattering solicitude smothering every spontaneous movement of thought or feeling.Marshall McLuhan Solicitude Sayings By Marshall McLuhan: The genteel is a mighty catafalque of service-with-a-smile and flattering solicitude smothering every spontaneous movement
I have the highest veneration of those Gentleman,
but, Sir, give me leave to demand, what right had they to say, We, the People? My political curiosity, exclusive of my anxious solicitude for the public welfare, leads me to ask who authorized them to speak the language of, We, the People, instead of We, the States? States are the characteristics, and the soul of the confederation. If the States be not the agents of this compact, it must be one of great consolidated National Government of the people of all the States.

Only in a house where one has learnt to be lonely does one have this solicitude for things. One's relation to them, the daily seeing or touching, begins to become love, and to lay one open to pain.Elizabeth Bowen Solicitude Sayings By Elizabeth Bowen: Only in a house where one has learnt to be lonely does one have this
As soon as I enter the door of a tavern, I experience oblivion of care, and a freedom from solicitude. There is nothing which has yet been contrived by man, by which so much happiness is produced as by a good tavern or inn.Samuel Johnson Solicitude Sayings By Samuel Johnson: As soon as I enter the door of a tavern, I experience oblivion of care,
