To be a catalyst is the ambition most appropriate for those who see the world as being in constant change, and who, without thinking that they control it, wish to influence its direction - Theodore Zeldin

Dignity

On the unnamed

Unnamed

 

The growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs - George EliotMiddlemarch

 

Unexpected celebrities have in recent times included the likes of Captain Sully Sullenberger and Susan Boyle, whose years of patiently working on their own talents suddenly came good, shooting them instantly to international attention, and who then accepted the spotlight, perhaps reluctantly, but with quiet dignity nonetheless.

Quote 800

We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force - Martin Luther King

Quote 798

The louder he talked of his honour, the faster we counted our spoons - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Quote 797

The demeaning of the dignity is almost the only reason for a fight - Simon Soloveychik (Parenting for Everyone, Book1, Ch.34)

Quote 796

Religious belief is without reason and without dignity, and its record is near-universally dreadful. It is straightforward - and never mind, for now, about plagues and famines: if God existed, and if He cared for humankind, He would never have given us religion - Martin Amis, http://books.guardian.co.uk/review/story/0,12084,725608,00.html

Quote 795

I regard religion itself as a plague. At best a collection of barriers to objectivity. Although in its milder forms it is benign, much of it is mental disease personified. I can have great respect for anyone with dignity and pacific bearing, but I cannot support the sheer lunacy of religious empire - Roy Harper
