American Transcendentalism quotes by Catherine L. Albanese
#1. The wellspring for the passion that drove public speech and action in behalf of the environment was in large part religious and ethical. Environmentalism, in short, had become one version of nature religion in the lingering shadow of American transcendentalism. #Quote by Catherine L. Albanese
American Transcendentalism quotes by Anushka Sharma
#2. My friends once told me I remind them of the main character from the American comedy series 'Curb Your Enthusiasm.' I thought they must mean a sunny, affable girl-next-door, but instead I was confronted with Larry David! Crabby, moody, perversely neurotic Larry David. And the thing is, my friends were right. #Quote by Anushka Sharma
American Transcendentalism quotes by Ta-Nehisi Coates
#3. I am not asking you as a white person to see yourself as an enslaver. I'm asking you as an American to see all of the freedoms that you enjoy and see how they are rooted in things that the country you belong to condoned or actively participated in the past. #Quote by Ta-Nehisi Coates

American Transcendentalism quotes by Cristina Saralegui

American Transcendentalism quotes by Suzanne Brockmann
#11. I believe strongly that my books are entertainment. I hope you might learn a thing or two while reading them, but first and foremost, my job is to entertain you. If I'm waving a flag in Hot Target, it's the same flag I've always waved in all my books - the American flag. And that's a flag that's supposed to stand for acceptance and understanding. For freedom for all - and not just freedom for all Americans, but freedom for all of the diverse and wonderful people living on this planet; freedom to live their lives according to their definitions of freedom. It's a flag that's supposed to stand for real American values like honor and honesty and peace and love and hope. #Quote by Suzanne Brockmann
American Transcendentalism quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#12. During the Cold War of the 1950s, American spies were issued eyeglasses with thick, clunky frames. If captured, they were trained to casually chew the curved earpieces, where fatal doses of cyanide were cast inside the plastic. It's these same horn-rimmed suicide glasses, the wrangler says, that inspired the look of Buddy Holly and Elvis Costello. All those young hipsters wearing death on their nose. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
American Transcendentalism quotes by Christian Rudder
#13. If you've ever signed up for a website and given a fake zip code or a fake birthday, you have violated the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. Any child under thirteen who visits violates their Terms of Service and is a criminal - not just in theory, but according to the working doctrine of the Department of Justice.1 The examples I've laid out are extreme, sure, but the laws involved are so broadly written as to ensure that, essentially, every Internet-using American is a tort-feasing felon on a lifelong spree of depraved web browsing. #Quote by Christian Rudder
American Transcendentalism quotes by Atul Gawande
#14. One American in seven has no coverage, and one in three younger than sixty-five will lose coverage at some point in the next two years. These are people who aren't poor or old enough to qualify for government programs but whose jobs aren't good enough to provide benefits either. #Quote by Atul Gawande
American Transcendentalism quotes by Mohsin Hamid
#15. The blast wave that passed through my sister's office doubtless passed through devout Muslims, atheist Muslims, gay Muslims, funny Muslims, and lovestruck Muslims - not to mention Pakistani Christians, Chinese engineers, American security contractors, and Indian Sikhs. What civilization, then, did the bomb target? And from what civilization did it originate? #Quote by Mohsin Hamid
American Transcendentalism quotes by Donald Trump, Jr.
#16. My father knows more about sports than any human being out there. He relaxes. The ribbing that we give each at the Christmas holidays is incredible. He's much more of an ordinary American and a proper American than a lot people would probably ever believe. #Quote by Donald Trump, Jr.
American Transcendentalism quotes by Shay Mitchell
#17. I'm a longtime fan of American Eagle, so when they approached me about joining their 'Live Your Life' campaign, it already felt like an organic fit. #Quote by Shay Mitchell
American Transcendentalism quotes by Eugene H. Peterson
#18. Somehow we American pastors, without really noticing what was happening, got our vocations redefined in the terms of American careerism. We quit thinking of the parish as a location for pastoral spirituality and started thinking of it as an opportunity for advancement. Tarshish, not Nineveh, was the destination. The moment we did that, we started thinking wrongly, for the vocation of pastor has to do with living out the implications of the word of God in community, not sailing off into the exotic seas of religion in search of fame and fortune. #Quote by Eugene H. Peterson
American Transcendentalism quotes by David Brinkley
#19. I'm not a very good advertisement for the American school system. #Quote by David Brinkley
American Transcendentalism quotes by Edna Lewis
#20. One of the greatest pleasures of my life has been that I have never stopped learning about Good Cooking and Good Food #Quote by Edna Lewis

#21. How unfair that we dispose of the indispensable. #Quote by Natalia Sylvester
American Transcendentalism quotes by Lewis H. Lapham
#22. What kind of people do we wish to become, and how do we know an American when we see one? Is it possible to pursue a common purpose without a common history or a standard text? #Quote by Lewis H. Lapham
American Transcendentalism quotes by Roberto Benigni
#23. I do not think the American peoples are idiots. They are a very playful and sensitive people! I know them! #Quote by Roberto Benigni
American Transcendentalism quotes by Thomas Menino

American Transcendentalism quotes by James McGreevey

American Transcendentalism quotes by Patricia Nelson Limerick
#26. On various occasions, especially in trying to think of western American history in the context of the worldwide history of colonialism, it has struck me that much of the mental behavior that we sometimes denounce as ethnocentrism and cultural insensitivity actually derives less from our indifference or hostility than from our clumsiness and awkwardness when we leave the comfort of the English language behind ... [V]enturing outside the bounds of the English language exercises and stretches our minds in ways that are essential for getting as close as we can to the act of seeing the world from what would otherwise remain unfamiliar and alien perspectives. #Quote by Patricia Nelson Limerick
American Transcendentalism quotes by Robert M. Hutchins
#27. We call Japanese soldiers fanatics when they die rather than surrender, whereas American soldiers who do the same thing are called heroes. #Quote by Robert M. Hutchins
American Transcendentalism quotes by Dick Cheney
#28. We have great information. They're going to welcome us. It'll be like the American Army going through the streets of Paris. They're sitting there ready to form a new government. The people will be so happy with their freedoms that we'll probably back ourselves out of there within a month or two. #Quote by Dick Cheney
American Transcendentalism quotes by Ryu Murakami
#29. American loneliness is a completely different creature from anything we experience in this country, and it made me glad I was born japanese. #Quote by Ryu Murakami
American Transcendentalism quotes by Beryl Dov
#30. Transience
I am the perfect chalk art Mona Lisa
dispossessed by summer rain.

I am the fastidious Mandala-offering
swept away by Tibetan monks after prayer.

I am a cloud clinging to a lofty mountain
dissipated by the listless afternoon sun.

I am the American President elect
a fading snapshot of fleeting mass delusions.

I am the victim of temporal pleasure
uprooted by woes without end.

Iam beauty evanescent
withering with each tick of the clock.

I have become all my dreams
which have turned to torments
as they were the smug vanities
of mere flesh and blood. #Quote by Beryl Dov
American Transcendentalism quotes by Hallgrimur Helgason
#31. Seinfeld was typically American in that show. He was a pretty funny guy, but he had no sense of style. Tacky like a Texan tux. Tasteless dressing and tasteful jokes. That's Seinfeld for me. I would have preferred it the other way around. #Quote by Hallgrimur Helgason
American Transcendentalism quotes by Sinclair Lewis
#32. Our American professors like their literature clear and cold and pure and very dead. #Quote by Sinclair Lewis

#33. I would love to get a role that changes the landscape of being an African American woman in television and film. #Quote by Candice Patton
American Transcendentalism quotes by Tim Ryan
#34. And I believe that if we can care about whether or not our neighbor has a good job or access to affordable health care for their children, and we move to implement the policies that can improve these situations, we will unleash vast amounts of human potential and recapture the American spirit. #Quote by Tim Ryan
American Transcendentalism quotes by Francis Chan
#35. ...I question whether many American churchgoers are really in love with God because they are so hesitant to do anything for Him. #Quote by Francis Chan
