American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Ross Douthat
#1. [M]ost Americans are still drawing some water from the Christian well. But a growing number are inventing their own versions of what Christianity means, abandoning the nuances of traditional theology in favor of religions that stroke their egos and indulge or even celebrate their worst impulses. . . .
Both doubters and believers stand to lose if religion in the age of heresy turns out to be complicit in our fragmented communities, our collapsing families, our political polarization, and our weakened social ties. Both doubters and believers will inevitably suffer from a religious culture that supplies more moral license than moral correction, more self-satisfaction than self-examination, more comfort than chastisement. . . .
Many of the overlapping crises in American life . . . can be traced to the impulse to emphasize one particular element of traditional Christianity - one insight, one doctrine, one teaching or tradition - at the expense of all the others. The goal is always progress: a belief system that's simpler or more reasonable, more authentic or more up-to-date. Yet the results often vindicate the older Christian synthesis. Heresy sets out to be simpler and more appealing and more rational, but it often ends up being more extreme. . . .
The boast of Christian orthodoxy . . . has always been its fidelity to the whole of Jesus. Its dogmas and definitions seek to encompass the seeming contradictions in the gospel narratives rather than evading them. . . .< #Quote by Ross Douthat
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Wendy Leigh
#2. At twenty-one he had arrived in America a penniless bodybuilder, born in an obscure Austrian village, armed only with the immigrant's time-honored weapons of hope, ambition, and an almost supernatural belief in the great American dream.
Now, through the traditional virtues of hard work, talent, charm, intelligence, positive mental attitude, and persistence, Arnold Schwarzenegger had become a household name. #Quote by Wendy Leigh
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Theodore C. Sorensen
#3. We shall listen, not lecture; learn, not threaten. We will enhance our safety by earning the respect of others and showing respect for them. In short, our foreign policy will rest on the traditional American values of restraint and empathy, not on military might. #Quote by Theodore C. Sorensen
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Harvey Cox
#4. Secular Humanism is opposed to other religions; it actively rejects, excludes, and attempts to eliminate traditional theism from meaningful participation in the American culture. #Quote by Harvey Cox
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Floyd Skloot
#5. 'The Art Student's War' is, at its core, a traditional American wartime love story. As such, it is timely and engrossing. By the end, all its principal characters 'have been to Hell and back.' #Quote by Floyd Skloot
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by William Howard Taft
#6. We should have an army so organized and so officered as to be capable in time of emergency, in cooperation with the National Militia, and under the provision of a proper national volunteer law, rapidly to expand into a force sufficient to resist all probable invasion from abroad and to furnish a respectable expeditionary force if necessary in the maintenance of our traditional American policy which bears the name of President Monroe. #Quote by William Howard Taft
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Alan Greenspan
#7. American consumers might benefit if lenders provided greater mortgage product alternatives to the traditional fixed-rate mortgage. #Quote by Alan Greenspan
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Bill O'Reilly
#8. To this culture warrior, gay marriage is not a vital issue. I don't believe the republic will collapse if Larry marries Brendan. However, it is clear that most Americans want heterosexual marriage to maintain its special place in American society. And as long as gays are not penalized in the civil arena, I think the folks should make the call at the ballot box. Traditional marriage is widely seen as a social stabilizer, and I believe that is true. #Quote by Bill O'Reilly
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Rainbow Rowell
#9. So . . . ," she says, following him to the chalkboard. "You got a Visiting. An actual Visiting - Natasha Grimm-Pitch was here."
Baz glances back over his shoulder. "You sound impressed, Bunce."
"I am," Penelope says. "Your mother was a hero. She developed a spell for gnomeatic fever. And she was the youngest headmaster in Watford history."
Baz is looking at Penny like they've never met.
"And," Penny goes on, "she defended your father in three duels before he accepted her proposal."
"That sounds barbaric," I say.
"It was traditional," Baz says.
"It was brilliant," Penny says. "I've read the minutes."
"Where?" Baz asks her.
"We have them in our library at home," she says. "My dad loves marriage rites. Any sort of family magic, actually. He and my mother are bound together in five dimensions."
"That's lovely," Baz says, and I'm terrified because I think he means it.
"I'm going to make time stop when I propose to Micah," she says.
"The little American? With the thick glasses?"
"Not so little anymore."
"Interesting." Baz rubs his chin. "My mother hung the moon."
"She was a legend," Penelope beams.
"I thought your parents hated the Pitches," I say.
They both look at me like I've just stuck my hand in the soup bowl.
"That's politics," Penelope says. "We're talking about magic."
"Obviously," I say. "What was I thinking."
"Obviously," Baz says. "You weren't."

American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Ross Douthat
#10. Many of the overlapping crises in American life, from our foreign policy disasters to the housing bubble to the rate of out-of-wedlock births, can be traced to the impulse to emphasize one particular element of traditional Christianity - one insight, one doctrine, one teaching or tradition - at the expense of all the others. The goal is always progress: a belief system that's simpler or more reasonable, more authentic or more up-to-date. Yet the results often vindicate the older Christian synthesis. Heresy sets out to be simpler and more appealing and more rational, but it often ends up being more extreme. #Quote by Ross Douthat
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Sinclair Lewis
#11. In America the Struggle was befogged by the fact that the worst Fascists were they who disowned the word "Fascism" and preached enslavement to Capitalism under the style of Constitutional and Traditional Native American Liberty. For they were thieves not only of wages but of honor. #Quote by Sinclair Lewis
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by John Oates
#12. My guitar playing is a synthesis of traditional American acoustic style and Urban Pop and R&B. #Quote by John Oates
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Kevin DeYoung
#13. I read an anecdote once about a woman from another culture who came to the United States and began to introduce herself as "Busy." It was, after all, the first thing she heard when meeting any American. Hello, I'm Busy - she figured it was part of our traditional greeting, #Quote by Kevin DeYoung
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Josephus Daniels
#14. To compel the nation with challenge the traditional American doctrine of freedom of the seas, every man and every ship in the navy is solemnly pledged. #Quote by Josephus Daniels
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Thomas E. Mails
#15. Having pursued this matter of Christian-traditional relationships as far as I have, it might be concluded that the rest of the book is permeated with references to it. That is not the case. All I have wanted to do is to fix in literary cement what amounts to one of the most incredible milestones in Christian church history - a stunning reversal of opinion where Native American religion is concerned. I harbor no illusions that such developments as these will escalate into anything like acceptance by all, or even a majority of, the Christian churches. But it is a strong beginning, and I, together with the Native Americans, am exceedingly grateful for it! Now though, everything that needs to be said about this has been said, and from here on the book is entirely Fools Crow. Among #Quote by Thomas E. Mails
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Mark Lilla
#16. Equal protection under the law is not a hard principle to convince Americans of. The difficulty comes in persuading them that it has been violated in particular cases, and of the need to redress the wrong. Prejudice and indifference run deep. Education, social reform, and political action can persuade some. But most people will not feel the sufferings of others unless they feel, even in an abstract way, that 'it could have been me or someone close to me'. Consider the astonishingly rapid transformation of American attitudes toward homosexuality and even gay marriage over the past decades. Gay activism brought these issues to public attention but attitudes were changed during tearful conversations over dinner tables across American when children came out to their parents (and, sometimes, parents came out to their children). Once parents began to accept their children, extended families did too, and today same-sex marriages are celebrated across the country with all the pomp and joy and absurd overspending of traditional American marriages. Race is a wholly different matter. Given the segregation in American society white families have little chance of seeing and therefore understanding the lives of black Americans. I am not black male motorist and never will be. All the more reason, then, that I need some way to identify with one if I am going to be affected by his experience. And citizenship is the only thing I know we share. The more differences between us are emphasized, th #Quote by Mark Lilla
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Kailin Gow
#17. Try being an indie author, a minority author, a woman, and a person with health issues in the world of traditional - that's where you are clearly 'different' and marginalized. I am all of that, yet I am still here and smiling. Life is good! #Quote by Kailin Gow
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Jodi Picoult
#18. Instead of plotting the demise of the traditional family, as some politicians and religious leaders would have you believe, gay people mow their lawns and watch 'American Idol' and video their children's concerts and have the same hopes and dreams that their straight counterparts do. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
#19. The death of anti-gay hate speech is no doubt being hastened by the head-spinning speed with which gays as a group - to say nothing of gay marriage - are becoming an unremarkable and even quite traditional parts of American life. #Quote by Jeffrey Kluger
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Paula Nelson
#20. Americans want action for their money. They are fascinated by its self- reproducing qualities if it's put to work. Gold- hoarding goes against the American grain; it fits in better with European pessimism than with America's traditional optimism. #Quote by Paula Nelson
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Kim Hyesoon
#21. We have certain rules for traditional lyric poetry in Korea. I twist my body, confused by what to say and how to act, facing these rules. Confronting traditional lyricism, I speak with a bare body without the tattoos of culture on it. #Quote by Kim Hyesoon
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by J. William Fulbright
#22. What they fear, I think rightly, is that traditional Vietnamese society cannot survive the American economic and cultural impact. #Quote by J. William Fulbright
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Ken Robinson
#23. Robert Sternberg is a professor of psychology at Tufts University and a past president of the American Psychological Association. He is a long-term critic of traditional approaches to intelligence testing and IQ. He argues that there are three types of intelligence: analytic intelligence, the ability to solve problems using academic skills and to complete conventional IQ tests; creative intelligence, the ability to deal with novel situations and to come up with original solutions; and practical intelligence, the ability to deal with problems and challenges in everyday life. #Quote by Ken Robinson
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by James W. Loewen
#24. We jettisoned our medical practices of the 1780s while retaining the Constitution. But Native American medicinal practitioners who abandon their traditional ways to embrace pasteurization from France and antibiotics from England are seen as compromising their Indian-ness. We can alter our modes of transportation or housing while remaining "American". Indians cannot and stay "Indian" in our eyes. #Quote by James W. Loewen
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Jared Taylor
#25. Needless to say, Mexico carefully controls its own borders. In 2005, it caught and deported nearly a quarter million illegals, mostly from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador.
Mexico thinks so little of our border, however, that its soldiers have made hundreds of incursions. In 2008, Edward Tuffy, head of the Border Patrol's largest union called on President Bush to stop illegal crossings in which Mexican soldiers have threatened and even fired on US agents. On August 3 of that year, four Mexican soldiers crossed the clearly marked border and held a Border Patrol agent at gunpoint. "Time after time they have gotten away with these incursions," said Mr. Tuffy, "and time after time our government has not taken a forceful stand against them."
All political factions in Mexico are united in the view that the United States has no right to control its southern border. Felipe Calderon, who succeeded Mr. Fox, unswervingly maintained this policy. During his first state-of-the-nation address in 2007, he won a standing ovation by repeating the traditional government position: "Mexico does not end at its borders," and, "Where there is a Mexican, there is Mexico."
The view that Mexicans have a natural right to enter the United States explains the vitriol that met American discussions in 2006 about ways to stop illegal crossings, and an eventual congressional vote to build a wall along certain parts of the border. President Vicente Fox called the plan for a wall "disgraceful #Quote by Jared Taylor
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Chris Lutz
#26. I disagree – massively – with the traditional American way firms are organized and run. In many organizations much of the labor is so far removed from the customer that employees don't care. They can't see the overall vision, process or outcome. They lose the feeling of ownership in what they are doing. Soon, they join the ranks of the "working dead." - Chris Lutz, Modular Career Design #Quote by Chris Lutz
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Phillip Lim
#27. Being from a very traditional Chinese-American family, my parents believed the only options to have a successful life were to be a doctor, a lawyer, an engineer or a business person. #Quote by Phillip Lim
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Dinesh D'Souza
#28. Contrary to what we hear, the great American divide is not a clash between conservatives who advocate liberty versus progressives who oppose liberty. Rather, the two sides each affirm a certain type of liberty. One side, for example, cherishes economic liberty while the other champions liberty in the sexual and social domain. Nor is it a clash between patriots and anti-patriots. Both sides love America, but they love a different type of America. One side loves the America of Columbus and the Fourth of July, of innovation and work and the "animal spirit" of capitalism, of the Boy Scouts and parochial schools, of traditional families and flag-saluting veterans. The other side loves the America of tolerance and social entitlements, of income and wealth redistribution, of affirmative action and abortion, of feminism and gay marriage. #Quote by Dinesh D'Souza
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Fredric Jameson
#29. The standardization of world culture, with local popular or traditional forms driven out or dumbed down to make way for American television, American music, food, clothes and films, has been seen by many as the very heart of globalization. #Quote by Fredric Jameson
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Margot Lee Shetterly
#30. As far as segregationists were concerned, racial integration and communism were one and the same and posed the same kind of threat to traditional American values. Yet those charged with mounting the American offence in space saw strength in countering the Russian values of secrecy with its opposites - transparency, democracy, equality- and not a simulacrum. #Quote by Margot Lee Shetterly
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Beth Fantaskey
#31. P.S. What the hell. Why not sign off with the traditional American greeting? "Merry Christmas," Uncle Vasile. "Happy holidays to you."
P.P.S. Really
"counseling"! #Quote by Beth Fantaskey
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Zoe Saldana
#32. I've witnessed racism all my life. And of course there's racism and discrimination in Hollywood. You go for a part and they say, 'Oh, we really liked her, she's amazing, but we wanted to go with something more traditional'. As if I'm not a traditional American! #Quote by Zoe Saldana
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Dinesh D'Souza
#33. What does the doctrine of American exceptionalism empower the United States to do? Nothing more than to act better than traditional empires - committed to looting and conquest - have done. So that's American exceptionalism: an exceptionalism based on noble ideas, ideas that it holds itself to even when it falls short of them. #Quote by Dinesh D'Souza
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Oliver Markus Malloy
#34. Why are so many Americans for male circumcision but against female circumcision? Both are equally cruel and barbaric traditions. #Quote by Oliver Markus Malloy
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Lin-Manuel Miranda
#35. Unless Lin made the whole thing up - and nobody has said that he did - it suggest that however innovative Obama's speeches and Lin's show might seem, they are, in fact, traditional. They don't reinvent the American character, they renew it. They remind us of something we forgot, something that fell as far out of sight as the posthumously neglected Alexander Hamilton, who spent his life defending one idea above all: "the necessity of Union to the respectability and happiness of this Country." Obama's speeches and Lin's show resonate so powerfully with their audiences because they find eloquent ways to revive Hamilton's revolution, the one that spurred Americans to see themselves and each other as fellow citizens in a sprawling, polyglot, young republic. It's the change in thought and feeling that makes all the other changes possible. #Quote by Lin-Manuel Miranda
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by William Commanda
#36. Traditional people of Indian nations have interpreted the two roads that face the light-skinned race as the road to technology and the road to spirituality. We feel that the road to technology ... has led modern society to a damaged and seared earth. Could it be that the road to technology represents a rush to destruction, and that the road to spirituality represents the slower path that the traditional native people have traveled and are now seeking again? The earth is not scorched on this trail. The grass is still growing there. #Quote by William Commanda
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by John Tavener
#37. When I talk of primordial innocence, I hear it in Sufi music with the nay flute. I see it in Coptic icons, in most traditional art, particularly art of the American Indian. I find the texts extraordinarily beautiful and very childlike and very simple. I've been particularly interested in American Indian texts. #Quote by John Tavener
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by David Eugene Edwards
#38. Well, at first the band were simply called Horsepower, but a lot of people thought that was something to do with heroin. That really pissed me off, so I decided to put something in front of it to distract them. I got '16' from a traditional American folk song, where a man is singing about his dead wife and 16 black horses are pulling her casket up to the cemetery. I liked the image of 16 working horses. #Quote by David Eugene Edwards
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Russell Means
#39. It takes a strong effort on the part of each American Indian not to become Europeanized. The strength for this effort can only come from the traditional ways, the traditional values that our elders retain. #Quote by Russell Means
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Joe Biden
#40. Thus, in setting an American agenda for a New World Order, we must begin with a profound alteration in traditional thought. #Quote by Joe Biden
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Bell Hooks
#41. It's really important to have life strategies and part of that is sort of knowing where you want to go so you can have a map that helps you to get there. And the traditional way tells us oh we get into school and someone else advises us, helps us, but that often does not work for African Americans female and male. Because what works for the dominant culture often does not work for us. #Quote by Bell Hooks
American Traditional Tattoo quotes by Herbert Croly
#42. When Jefferson and the Republicans rallied to the Union and to the existing Federalist organization, the fabric of traditional American democracy was almost completely woven. #Quote by Herbert Croly
