14th August 2013 quotes by Marcel H. Van Herpen
#1. On August 7, 2013, on the evening of the fifth anniversary of the war, Georgian President Mikheil Saakasvili, in a prerecorded interview on Georgia's Rustavi-2 TV, told that he had met Putin in Moscow in February 2008 at an informal summit of the CIS. During the summit he told Putin that he was ready to say no to NATO in exchange for Russian help with the reintegration of the two breakaway territories. Saakashvili claimed "that 'Putin did not even think for a minute" about his proposal. "[Putin] smiled and said, 'We do not exchange your territories for your geopolitical orientation... And it meant 'we will chop off your territories anyway.'"

Saakashvili asked him to talk about the growing tensions along the borders with South Ossetia, saying, "It could not be worse than now." "That's when he [Putin] looked at me and said: 'And here you are very wrong. You will see that very soon it will be much, much, much worse.'" [234] #Quote by Marcel H. Van Herpen
14th August 2013 quotes by Marianne Williamson
#2. Something very beautiful happens to people when their world has fallen apart: a humility, a nobility, a higher intelligence emerges at just the point when our knees hit the floor. Perhaps, in a way, that's where humanity is now: about to discover we're not as smart as we thought we were, will be forced by life to surrender our attacks and defenses which avail us of nothing, and finally break through into the collective beauty of who we really are.

#3. In January 2013, I told the people in the Justice Department after the re-election that I wanted to focus on reforming the federal criminal justice system. I made an announcement in August of that year in San Francisco, when we rolled out the Smart on Crime initiative. #Quote by Eric Holder

14th August 2013 quotes by Richard Engel
#9. It took from 1967 to 2003 - over three decades - to build the big men. It took a decade - 2003 to 2013 - to destroy them. I suspect a new generation of big men will return. No people can tolerate chaos forever. Dictators will offer a way out and many of the exhausted and brutalized people of the Middle East will accept them, and I suspect Washington will as well. #Quote by Richard Engel
14th August 2013 quotes by Keira D. Skye
#10. It was August 5th in 1971. The vortex of summer. Joshua looked unwaveringly at Meredith Hurley. She looked back with kindness, and smiled softly as she looked back, feeling a connection that was invisible to the naked eye, yet magnetic and manifested in both of their hearts. #Quote by Keira D. Skye
14th August 2013 quotes by Friedrich August Von Hayek

#13. If the Bill of Rights was intended to place strict limits on federal power and protect individual and locality from the national government the 14th Amendment effectively defeated that purpose by placing the power to enforce the Bill of Rights in federal hands, where it was never intended to be. #Quote by Ilana Mercer
14th August 2013 quotes by Ken Kesey
#14. This is just shit. It's happening. No blame. Happening and on the rise it would appear. What can we do to delay it? Probably zilch. To stop it? Likely less. But to survive it? Now that sounds more promising. There is evidence of bad shit having been survived before. Ancient Advice Left in cave by Wise French Caveman: "When Bigbad Shit come, no run scream hide. Try paint picture of it on wall. Drum to it. Sing to it. Dance to it. This give you handle on it." So Twister is my try.

14th August 2013 quotes by Adam Zagajewski
#17. A little rain, a little blood. Black fingernails in August; and going berserk, going bananas. As if entrapped in a tropical heatwave, with dozens of whirlwinds swirling in one's mind, one thinks of a way out, or a way in: out of the scorching bosom of a volcano, and in – into the centre of a raging hurricane. And tracing the labyrinthine ways of your mind, the haphazard vagaries of your thoughts at ease, the odds and ends of your mental surplus you carelessly throw at the world, one wants to be at a loss, in a maze; amazed, and amazingly unabashed. #Quote by Adam Zagajewski
14th August 2013 quotes by Friedrich August Von Hayek
#18. The discussions of every age are filled with the issues on which its leading schools of thought differ. But the general intellectual atmosphere of the time is always determined by the views on which the opposing schools agree. They become the unspoken presuppositions of all thought, and common and unquestioningly accepted foundations on which all discussion proceeds. #Quote by Friedrich August Von Hayek
14th August 2013 quotes by August Krogh
#19. In man, the mechanical breathing is essential to life, and it is one of the old tests for death to see whether these movements have ceased completely. #Quote by August Krogh
14th August 2013 quotes by Nithin Purple
#20. If seasons diseases be, consider human's too, his fate same it's true
Rudest time steels, and murders through fever, pain, amid all in woe.
Swelling then cold, yet numb, in young and old, fearing wildest swell,
See it turns the sweetest singers throats, and morrow, a garland will.

For A Diseased Friend Who Died Of Fever In 2013 #Quote by Nithin Purple

#21. Social media is not the same in 2013 as it was in 2003 - or even 2008 or 2011. You didn't carry around AOL chat in your pocket or look at it when you were in class. #Quote by Nancy Jo Sales

14th August 2013 quotes by R. Alan Woods
#25. Dynamic/Active vs. Static/Passive. The Biblical statement, '...and with knowledge gain understanding, and with understanding gain wisdom'- NT (passim), speaks to an active experiential involvement necessary on our part in producing a state of dynamic pragmatism. To my understanding, wisdom is knowledge understood and applied in our daily lives where the-rubber-meets-the-road".

14th August 2013 quotes by Ace Antonio Hall

14th August 2013 quotes by Marcel H. Van Herpen
#27. On September 11, 2008, during a meeting of the Valdai Club with Vladimir Putin in Sochi, Carrère d'Encausse asked Putin if he would respond positively to Kokoity's demand for integration of South Ossetia into the Russian Federation. She wrote: "Vladimir Putin answered with the greatest firmness that such a hypothesis was excluded. He explained that if Russia in this specific case was unable to ignore the will of the Ossetian people to be independent, it was firm regarding the principles of respecting the inviolability of existing frontiers. This principle, according to him, applied without exception to the Russian Federation which could not, therefore, welcome into its midst a nation or territory that so desired."

Putin's double-talk (he is speaking about the "inviolability of existing frontiers" just after having changed the frontiers of Georgia by brutal force) brings her to the - naive - conclusion that "the blunt refusal that was opposed to the Ossetian demand for integration into Russia makes the Russian position clear: the August intervention in Georgia... could lead to a settlement of a conflict between Georgia and its separatist minorities, [but] in no case to a dossier that was of interest to Russia." [237] #Quote by Marcel H. Van Herpen
14th August 2013 quotes by R. Alan Woods
#28. I was 'led' to read The Shack by Wm Paul Young after the sudden & unexpected death of my fiance', Marina DeAngelo in July of 2012. It helped me as it has millions of people with the trauma and grief associated with the great personal loss of a loved one."

14th August 2013 quotes by August Strindberg
#30. This feeling of power, it's happiness to sit in a cottage by the Danube among six women who think I'm semi-idiot, and to know that in Paris, the headquarters of intelligence, 500 people are sitting dead-quiet in the auditorium and are foolish enough to expose their brains to my powers of suggestion. Some revolt! But many will go away with my spores in their gray matter. They will go home pregnant with the seed of my soul, and they will breed my brood. #Quote by August Strindberg
14th August 2013 quotes by Charles A. Cornell
#31. No evil ever came from a woman's womb that wasn't placed there first by a man.' ... Tantie Neptune, Lucifer's Key by Charles A. Cornell, due 2013 #Quote by Charles A. Cornell
14th August 2013 quotes by Sara Gruen
#32. There is no question that I am the only thing standing between these animals and the business practices of August and Uncle Al, and what my father would do
what my father would want me to do
is look after them, and I am filled with that absolute and unwavering conviction. No matter what I did last night, I cannot leave these animals. I am their shepherd, their protector. #Quote by Sara Gruen
14th August 2013 quotes by John Maynard Keynes
#33. What an extraordinary episode in the economic progress of man that age was which came to an end in August 1914! The greater part of the population, it is true, worked hard and lived at a low standard of comfort, yet were, to all appearances, reasonably contented with this lot. But escape was possible, for any man of capacity or character at all exceeding the average, into the middle and upper classes, for whom life offered, at a low cost and with the least trouble, conveniences, comforts, and amenities beyond the compass of the richest and most powerful monarchs of other ages.

The inhabitant of London could order by telephone, sipping his morning tea in bed, the various products of the whole earth, in such quantity as he might see fit, and reasonably expect their early delivery upon his doorstep; he could at the same moment and by the same means adventure his wealth in the natural resources and new enterprises of any quarter of the world, and share, without exertion or even trouble, in their prospective fruits and advantages; or he could decide to couple the security of his fortunes with the good faith of the townspeople of any substantial municipality in any continent that fancy or information might recommend. He could secure forthwith, if he wished it, cheap and comfortable means of transit to any country or climate without passport or other formality, could despatch his servant to the neighbouring office of a bank for such supply of the precious metals as might #Quote by John Maynard Keynes
14th August 2013 quotes by Victoria Schwab
#34. I'd rather be able to see the truth than live a lie. #Quote by Victoria Schwab
14th August 2013 quotes by John August
#35. When Tim asked me to do Frankenweenie, he had his original sketches from before he did the short, of what Sparky looked like, and he drew Victor and some of the other crucial people. The remarkable thing about working with Tim is that, once he's read a script, he sketches out everybody else. #Quote by John August
14th August 2013 quotes by August Krogh
#36. In the numerous observations made in my laboratory upon this object, we have only once seen a combination of vessels in which there might be a direct communication between a small artery and a vein, though the two observers could not come to a final conclusion on the point. #Quote by August Krogh
14th August 2013 quotes by Friedrich August Von Hayek
#37. Socialism has never and nowhere been at first a working-class movement. It is by no means an obvious remedy for the obvious evil which the interests of that class will necessarily demand. It is a construction of theorists. #Quote by Friedrich August Von Hayek
14th August 2013 quotes by Curtis Sittenfeld
#38. To think of the Midwest as a whole as anything other than beautiful is to ignore the extraordinary power of the land. The lushness of the grass and trees in August, the roll of the hills (far less of the Midwest is flat than outsiders seem to imagine), the rich smell of soil, the evening sunlight over a field of wheat, or the crickets chirping at dusk on a residential street: All of it, it has always made me feel at peace. There is room to breathe, there is a realness of place. The seasons are extreme, but they pass and return, pass and return, and the world seems far steadier than it does from the vantage point of a coastal city.

Certainly picturesque towns can be found in New England or California or the Pacific Northwest, but I can't shake the sense that they're too picturesque. On the East Coast, especially, these places seem to me aggressively quaint, unbecomingly smug, and even xenophobic, downright paranoid in their wariness of those who might somehow infringe upon the local charm. I suspect this wariness is tied to the high cost of real estate, the fear that there might not be enough space or money and what there is of both must be clung to and defended. The West Coast, I think, has a similar self-regard...and a beauty that I can't help seeing as show-offy. But the Midwest: It is quietly lovely, not preening with the need to have its attributes remarked on. It is the place I am calmest and most myself. #Quote by Curtis Sittenfeld
