Community quotes by Muriel Barbery
#1. The gifts of fate come with a price. For those who have been favored by life's indulgence, rigorous respect in matters of beauty is a non-negotiable requirement. Language is a bountiful gift and its usage, an elaboration of community and society, is a sacred work. Language and usage evolve over time: elements change, are forgotten or reborn, and while there are instances where transgression can become the source of an even greater wealth, this does not alter the fact that to be entitled to the liberties of playfulness or enlightened misusage when using language, one must first and foremost have sworn one's total allegiance. Society's elect, those whom fate has spared from the servitude that is the lot of the poor, must, consequently, shoulder the double burden of worshipping and respecting the splendors of language. #Quote by Muriel Barbery
Community quotes by Joan D. Chittister
#2. Benedict sets up a community, a family. And families, the honest among us will admit, are risky places to be if perfection is what y ou are expecting in life. #Quote by Joan D. Chittister
Community quotes by William E. Burrows
#3. The question to ask is whether the risk of traveling to space is worth the benefit. The answer is an unequivocal yes, but not only for the reasons that are usually touted by the space community: the need to explore, the scientific return, and the possibility of commercial profit. The most compelling reason, a very long-term one, is the necessity of using space to protect Earth and guarantee the survival of humanity. #Quote by William E. Burrows
Community quotes by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
#4. If the firms that employ an increasing majority of the population are driven solely to satisfy the owner's greed at the expense of working conditions, of the stability of the community, and of the health of the environment, chances are that the quality of our lives will be worse than it is now. #Quote by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
Community quotes by Cindy McCain
#5. Our government treats the LGBT community like second-class citizens. #Quote by Cindy McCain
Community quotes by Terence McKenna
#6. History is ending because the dominator culture has led the human species into a blind alley, and as the inevitable chaostrophie approaches, people look for metaphors and answers. Every time a culture gets into trouble it casts itself back into the past looking for the last sane moment it ever knew. And the last sane moment we ever knew was on the plains of Africa 15,000 years ago rocked in the cradle of the Great Horned Mushroom Goddess before history, before standing armies, before slavery and property, before warfare and phonetic alphabets and monotheism, before, before, before. And this is where the future is taking us because the secret faith of the twentieth century is not modernism, the secret faith of the twentieth century is nostalgia for the archaic, nostalgia for the paleolithic, and that gives us body piercing, abstract expressionism, surrealism, jazz, rock-n-roll and catastrophe theory. The 20th century mind is nostalgic for the paradise that once existed on the mushroom dotted plains of Africa where the plant-human symbiosis occurred that pulled us out of the animal body and into the tool-using, culture-making, imagination-exploring creature that we are. And why does this matter? It matters because it shows that the way out is back and that the future is a forward escape into the past. This is what the psychedelic experience means. Its a doorway out of history and into the wiring under the board in eternity. And I tell you this because if the community understan #Quote by Terence McKenna
Community quotes by Jeffrey Skoll
#7. I believe that Silicon Valley is truly a place of excellence and the impact of this tiny community on the world is completely disproportionate to its size. We are the undisputed leaders of technological change. But with our abundance of talent and resources, we also have the opportunity to be the pioneers of social change and, ultimately, this may be our greatest contribution. #Quote by Jeffrey Skoll
Community quotes by Eduardo J. Padron
#8. Community colleges are the great American invention in terms of education, #Quote by Eduardo J. Padron
Community quotes by William Faulkner
#9. When Miss Emily Grierson died, our whole town went to her funeral: the men through a sort of respectful affection for a fallen monument, the women mostly out of curiosity to see the inside of her house, which no one save an old manservant - a combined gardener and cook - had seen in at least ten years. #Quote by William Faulkner
Community quotes by Jenny Shipley
#10. With the adoption of the Declaration on the Elimination of Violence against Women, the international community sent out a clear message that gender based violence will not be tolerated. #Quote by Jenny Shipley
Community quotes by Nhat Hanh
#11. I love to sit and eat quietly and enjoy each bite, aware of the presence of my community, aware of all the hard and loving work that has gone into my food. #Quote by Nhat Hanh
Community quotes by Joe Biden
#12. My father used to have an expression. He'd say, 'Joey, a job is about a lot more than a paycheck. It's about your dignity. It's about respect. It's about your place in your community.' #Quote by Joe Biden
Community quotes by Carl Schmitt
#13. The transformation of the community into an administrative state responsible for total social welfare leads to a paternal totality without a house-father when it fails to find any archy or cracy that is more than a mere nomos of distribution and production.
I consider it to be a utopia when Friedrich Engels promises that one day all power of men over men will cease, that there will be only production and consumption with no problems, and that "things will govern themselves." This things-governing-themselves will make every archy and cracy super­fluous , and demonstrate that mankind at last has found its formula, just as, according to Dostoyevsky, the bees found their formula in the beehive, because animal s, too, have their nomos. Most of those who swarm around a nomos basileus fail to notice that, in reality, they propagate just such a formula. #Quote by Carl Schmitt
Community quotes by Elizabeth Von Arnim
#14. I have been much afflicted again lately by visitors ... and they gave me to understand that if they had had the arranging of the garden it would have been finished long ago - whereas I don't believe a garden is ever finished. They have all gone now, thank heaven. #Quote by Elizabeth Von Arnim
Community quotes by Ronald Reagan
#15. Deep religious beliefs stemming from the Old and New Testaments of the Bible inspired many of the early settlers of our country, providing them with the strength, character, convictions, and faith necessary to withstand great hardship and danger in this new and rugged land. These shared beliefs helped forge a sense of common purpose among the widely dispersed colonies - a sense of community which laid the foundation for the spirit of nationhood that was to develop in later decades. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Community quotes by Russell Tovey
#16. I've always put out positivity, and I've always been very open and proud throughout my whole career, and at no point have I ever tried to cause controversy or just say something that wasn't totally in support of everyone in the community. #Quote by Russell Tovey
Community quotes by Amos Bronson Alcott
#17. A state, a community, caring first for all its children, providing amply for their spiritual as for their temporal well-being, has organized the primitive Eden. #Quote by Amos Bronson Alcott
Community quotes by Ilchi Lee
#18. Earth Citizens recognize themselves as members of a planetary community, instead of as members of a single nation, religion, or organization. And, most importantly, they live that awareness. #Quote by Ilchi Lee
Community quotes by Deon Cole
#19. No matter what barbershop you go to, there's always that guy who's just hanging around and doesn't do much, but knows everything that's going on in the community. #Quote by Deon Cole
Community quotes by Anatoly Chubais
#20. For the whole of Western Europe, I know the business community quite good. #Quote by Anatoly Chubais
Community quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#21. The first service one owes to others in a community involves listening to them. Just as our love for God begins with listening to God's Word, the beginning of love for others is learning to listen to them. God's love for us is shown by the fact that God not only gives God's Word, but also lends us God's ear.

We do God's work for our brothers and sisters when we learn to listen to them.

So often Christians, especially preachers, think that their only service is always to have to 'offer' something when they are together with other people.

They forget that listening can be a greater service…Christians who can no longer listen to one another will soon no longer be listening to God either. #Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Community quotes by M. Scott Peck
#22. An unconscious, gentle process whereby people who want to be loving attempt to be so by telling little white lies, by withholding some of the truth about themselves and their feelings in order to avoid conflict. Pseudocommunity is conflict-avoiding; true community is conflict-resolving. #Quote by M. Scott Peck
Community quotes by Jonathan Raban
#23. In the city one clings to nostalgic and unreal signs of community, takes forced refuge in codes, badges and coteries; the city's life, of surfaces and locomotion, usually seems too dangerous and demanding to live through with any confidence. #Quote by Jonathan Raban
Community quotes by Dr Syed Muhammad Zeeshan Hussain Almashhadi
#24. Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in. #Quote by Dr Syed Muhammad Zeeshan Hussain Almashhadi
Community quotes by David McCullough
#25. Because it's of more importance to community, that innocence should be protected, than it is, that guilt should be punished. #Quote by David McCullough
Community quotes by Jodi Picoult
#26. Hunger, she often tells me, has nothing to do with the belly and everything to do with the mind. What Mary really runs isn't a bakery, but a community. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Community quotes by Leonard Slatkin
#27. The conductor is the artistic leader and sometimes cultural arbiter of his or her community. It is their leadership that is looked to and should anything go wrong, they are the persons taking most of the heat. #Quote by Leonard Slatkin
Community quotes by Plato
#28. All the same, we ought to point out that if the kinds of poetry and representation which are designed merely to give pleasure can come up with a rational argument for their inclusion in a well-governed community, we'd be delighted
short of compromising the truth as we see it, which wouldn't be right
to bring them back from exile: after all, we know from our own experience all about their spell. I mean haven't you ever fallen under the spell of poetry, Glaucon, especially when the spectacle is provided by Homer? #Quote by Plato
Community quotes by Cleveland Sellers
#29. We cannot sit around and talk about the beloved community. #Quote by Cleveland Sellers
Community quotes by Rudger Clawson
#30. If you will show me the songs which a people or a community sing, then I will tell you the character of that community. #Quote by Rudger Clawson
Community quotes by Warren Ellis
#31. He wasn't pleased with himself for appraising the girl in the tank. He thought of her as half-pretty, the sort of girl one would find modeling for art classes in dire community colleges. Putting her cheap panties and her ex-boyfriend's shirt back on to wander around the easels afterward and wondering how grotesque she must really be, to have summoned up the deformities whacked down in merciless charcoal strikes. #Quote by Warren Ellis
Community quotes by Daniel J. Boorstin
#32. While the easiest way in metaphysics is to condemn all metaphysics as nonsense, the easiest way in morals is to elevate the common practice of the community into a moral absolute. #Quote by Daniel J. Boorstin
Community quotes by Barbara Brown Taylor
#33. The tradition piece is so embedded in me I don't know that I can see it any more, but the community piece is one I've been in danger of losing. #Quote by Barbara Brown Taylor
Community quotes by Sandra Rogers
#34. The myth that morality and fidelity are old-fashioned and trite can imprison more than just one individual as generations are affected by the choices perpetuated by this lie. The myth that withholding judgment or having charity means that all values are relative and should be given equal importance or loyalty creates a heavy chain that eventually traps a person in doubt and disaffection, leaving him or her to be constantly "driven with the wind and tossed" (see James 1:6). However, confidence that Christ honors those who honor him (see 1 Samuel 2:30) provides an anchor to our souls (see Ether 12:4) whereby we are capable of giving affirmative answers to those who question the "reason of the hope that is in [us]" (1 Peter 3:15). I remember one of my saddest moments as a faculty member at BYU. One of my students came to me in emotional tatters. She had come to BYU looking for a supportive community that shared her values, something she had not enjoyed being the only Mormon in her high school. Instead her peers at BYU teased, sneered at, and demeaned her because she was not willing to watch an R-rated movie. How proud I was of her! Despite the hurt of rejection "by her own," her faith carried her through the social prison created by her peers. To "stand in holy places, and be not moved" (D&C 87:8) in today's world requires faith, courage, poise, and patience. #Quote by Sandra Rogers
Community quotes by Ze'ev Jabotinsky
#35. The fight against Germany has now been waged for months by every Jewish community, on every conference, in all labor unions and by every single Jew in the world. There are reasons for the assumption that our share in this fight is of general importance. We shall start a spiritual and material war of the whole world against Germany. Germany is striving to become once again a great nation, and to recover her lost territories as well as her colonies. But our Jewish interests call for the complete destruction of Germany ... #Quote by Ze'ev Jabotinsky
Community quotes by Terence McKenna
#36. The creative act is a letting down of the net of human imagination into the ocean of chaos on which we are suspended, and the attempt to bring out of it ideas.
It is the night sea journey, the lone fisherman on a tropical sea with his nets, and you let these nets down - sometimes, something tears through them that leaves them in shreds and you just row for shore, and put your head under your bed and pray.
At other times what slips through are the minutiae, the minnows of this ichthyological metaphor of idea chasing.
But, sometimes, you can actually bring home something that is food, food for the human community that we can sustain ourselves on and go forward. #Quote by Terence McKenna
Community quotes by Jane Krakowski
#37. My parents were involved in community theater in New Jersey. Instead of hiring a baby sitter, they would take me with them. So my love of acting seeped in from watching my parents and seeing them having fun. #Quote by Jane Krakowski
Community quotes by William James
#38. The community stagnates without the impulse of the individual. The impulse dies away without the sympathy of the community. #Quote by William James
Community quotes by Oscar Wilde
#39. As one reads history, not in the expurgated editions written for schoolboys and passmen, but in the original authorities of each time, one is absolutely sickened, not by the crimes that the wicked have committed, but by the punishments that the good have inflicted; and a community is infinitely more brutalized by the habitual employment of punishment than it is by the occasional occurrence of crime. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Community quotes by Gerry Harvey
#40. You could go out and give a million dollars to a charity tomorrow to help the homeless. You could argue that it is just wasted. They are not putting anything back into the community. #Quote by Gerry Harvey
Community quotes by Ken Wilson
#41. Today we have gay people whose relationships, until just recently, have been branded by society as extraordinarily shameful, as uniquely perverse - worse than incest. The cultural heritage of this view had the effect of driving them all underground, where sex is practiced surreptitiously, secretively, for fear of social ostracism, not to mention physical harm. And now, tired of the highway rest stops, tired of the back rooms in gay bars, many in that community have a longing to attempt what can only be regarded as modern marvel regardless of gender: two people willing to attempt lifelong fidelity to each other, come what may. This doesn't seem to me to be a "slippery slope." It seems to me that it might actually be instead, a redemptive trajectory. #Quote by Ken Wilson
Community quotes by Jason Whitlock
#42. And that the arming of so many black youths, uh, and loading up our community with drugs, and then just having an open shooting gallery, is the work of people who obviously don't have our best interests [at heart]. #Quote by Jason Whitlock
Community quotes by Mohamed ElBaradei
#43. Iran's goal is not to become another North Korea - a nuclear weapons possessor but a pariah in the international community - but rather Brazil or Japan, a technological powerhouse with the capacity to develop nuclear weapons if the political winds were to shift, while remaining a nonnuclear weapons state. #Quote by Mohamed ElBaradei
Community quotes by Russell Simmons
#44. I want to get involved in things that makes a difference in peoples lives and lifts them up. I don't want to be a part of anything that's not inspiring or helpful to the community that I'm serving. #Quote by Russell Simmons
Community quotes by Patrick Dixon
#45. Connect with all the passions people have -for themselves, their families, their communities and wider world - and they will follow you to the ends of the earth, buy your products and services with pride, and may even be willing to work for you for next to nothing. #Quote by Patrick Dixon
Community quotes by Win Butler
#46. What I miss [about church] is being forced to be in community with people that aren't the same as me. #Quote by Win Butler
Community quotes by Kazuo Ishiguro
#47. After all, if a community could reach some sort of an equilibrium without having to be guided by an outsider, then so much the better. #Quote by Kazuo Ishiguro
Community quotes by Idries Shah
#48. Definitions from Mulla Do-Piaza
Community: Irrationals unified by hope of the impossible. #Quote by Idries Shah
Community quotes by Twyla Tharp
#49. Collaboration is how most of our ancestors used to work and live, before machines came along and fragmented society. Time to plant the fields? Everybody pitched in and got it done. Harvesttime? The community raced to get the crops in before the rains came. Where were those crops stored? In barns built by teams of neighbors. In the cities, the same spirit applied. Anonymous craftsmen spent their lives building cathedrals that wouldn't be completed for generations. #Quote by Twyla Tharp
Community quotes by Pope Francis
#50. Let us not grow tired of knocking at God's door. Let us go to the heart of God through Mary, our whole life, every day, knocking at the door of God's heart! Mary prays - prays together with the community of disciples, and teaches us to have full faith in God, in his mercy. This is the power of prayer! #Quote by Pope Francis
Community quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#51. Even in civilized communities, the embryo man passes through the hunter stage of development. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Community quotes by Howard Schultz
#52. There is a word that comes to my mind when I think about our company and our people. That word is 'love.' I love Starbucks because everything we've tried to do is steeped in humanity.
Respect and dignity.
Passion and laughter.
Compassion, community, and responsibility.
Authenticity.
These are Starbucks' touchstones, the source of our pride.
Valuing personal connections at a time when so many people sit alone in front of screens; aspiring to build human relationships in an age when so many issues polarize so many; and acting ethically, even if it costs more, when corners are routinely cut
these are honorable pursuits, at the core of what we set out to be. #Quote by Howard Schultz
Community quotes by Miles McPherson
#53. Christmas is a time when God showed His love for us, and we're ready to show God's love in the communities where we live and serve. That's the purpose of the church. #Quote by Miles McPherson
Community quotes by Joseph F. Girzone
#54. There were rumors and jokes and casual remarks made about him, and the bishop and his staff were content to allow Joshua's reputation to be determined by these remarks. It showed the poverty of their concern for the real life of the community and the little value they placed on reputations. #Quote by Joseph F. Girzone
Community quotes by John Garamendi
#55. Well, actually, if you can stay in your home that is a better deal for the neighborhood. It's certainly a better deal for the person that is in their home, rather than to be on the street and for that house to go into foreclosure and become a problem for the whole community. #Quote by John Garamendi
Community quotes by David Pratt
#56. Educate yourself, take the time to find out what is in a bill and how it will effect everything, and not just how it effects you in the short term, but what the long term consequences of a bill, law or legislations will have an everyone and every community, altimetry effecting you! #Quote by David Pratt
Community quotes by Jonathan Kellerman
#57. I spent the first few years of my life in a smallish community in Queens. Back in those early days, kids could roam the streets with relatively little supervision and one place I visited frequently was the local library. This particular branch was little more than a storefront but to me it was an alternative universe where I could explore my interests and receive kind, informative answers to my questions from the wonderful librarians. #Quote by Jonathan Kellerman
Community quotes by Carl Safina
#58. Saving the world requires saving democracy. That requires well-informed citizens. Conservation, environment, poverty, community, education, family, health, economy- these combine to make one quest: liberty and justice for all. Whether one's special emphasis is global warming or child welfare, the cause is the same cause. And justice comes from the same place being human comes from: compassion. #Quote by Carl Safina
Community quotes by Arnold J. Toynbee
#59. So-called racial characteristics are not really racial at all but are due to the historical experiences of the communities in question. #Quote by Arnold J. Toynbee
Community quotes by Paul C. Nagel
#60. Adams met with a convention on keeping the Sabbath and found the atmosphere surprisingly similar to that in Congress. Legalistic disputes so abounded that he found it difficult to keep order. #Quote by Paul C. Nagel
Community quotes by Warren Bennis
#61. Learning in a face-to-face human community, as humans have evolved to do over hundreds of thousands of years, may always be the ideal - especially in an endeavor that is as relationship-driven as business. #Quote by Warren Bennis
Community quotes by Emo Philips
#62. I read that nine out of 10 women fantasize about having an unknown man leap through their bedroom window at night and make mad, passionate love to them. Who would think with those odds, I would now be facing 150 hours of community service. #Quote by Emo Philips
Community quotes by Thomas S. Monson
#63. Balanced service is a virtue to be cherished. There is to be time in our life to serve God, to serve our family, to serve our country and community, to serve our employer. Wise persons budget available time so that no significant area of one's life falls into a state of neglect. #Quote by Thomas S. Monson
Community quotes by Wendell Berry
#64. A crowd whose discontent has risen no higher than the level of slogans is only a crowd. But a crowd that understands the reasons for its discontent and knows the remedies is a vital community, and it will have to be reckoned with. I would rather go before the government with two people who have a competent understanding of an issue, and who therefore deserve a hearing, than with two thousand who are vaguely dissatisfied.
But even the most articulate public protest is not enough. We don't live in the government or in institutions or in our public utterances and acts, and the environmental crisis has its roots in our lives. By the same token, environmental health will also be rooted in our lives. That is, I take it, simply a fact, and in the light of it we can see how superficial and foolish we would be to think that we could correct what is wrong merely by tinkering with the institutional machinery. The changes that are required are fundamental changes in the way we are living. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Community quotes by Richard C. Lewontin
#65. Our willingness to accept scientific claims that are against common sense is the key to an understanding of the real struggle between science and the supernatural. We take the side of science in spite of the patent absurdity of some of its constructs, in spite of its failure to fulfill many of its extravagant promises of health and life, in spite of the tolerance of the scientific community for unsubstantiated just-so stories, because we have a prior commitment, a commitment to materialism. It is not that the methods and institutions of science somehow compel us to accept a material explanation of the phenomenal world, but, on the contrary, that we are forced by our a priori adherence to material causes to create an apparatus of investigation and a set of concepts that produce material explanations, no matter how counter-intuitive, no matter how mystifying to the uninitiated. Moreover, that materialism is absolute, for we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door.
[Billions and Billions of Demons - JANUARY 9, 1997 ISSUE] #Quote by Richard C. Lewontin
Community quotes by Lisa Randall
#66. A musical, like most religions, provides the audience or followers with a sense of belonging. Religious services, on the other hand, with their staged performances, invigorating songs, popular wisdom and shared experience, are almost a form of community theater. #Quote by Lisa Randall
Community quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#67. Peace, however, is not merely a gift to be received: it is also a task to be undertaken. In order to be true peacemakers, we must educate ourselves in compassion, solidarity, working together, fraternity, in being active within the community and concerned to raise awareness about national and international issues and the importance of seeking adequate mechanisms for the redistribution of wealth, the promotion of growth, cooperation for development and conflict resolution. 'Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God', as Jesus says in the Sermon on the Mount #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI
Community quotes by Rashid Johnson
#68. My father owned a small company, called Gundel Electronics, where he did community band radio and some repair stuff. #Quote by Rashid Johnson
Community quotes by K.d. Lang
#69. I mean, I am fully aware of my influence and my responsibility to society in general representing the gay community. But in the same time, I don't represent the entire gay community because it's a vast, vast community, as one can imagine. #Quote by K.d. Lang
Community quotes by Robert Putnam
#70. Nearly half of all associational memberships are church-religious context. Religious worshipers and people who say religion is very important to them are much more likely than other persons to visit friends, to entertain at home, to attend club meetings, and to belong to sports groups; professional and academic societies; school service groups; youth groups; service clubs; hobby or garden clubs; literary, art, discussion, and study groups; school fraternities and sororities; farm organization; political clubs; nationality groups; and other miscellaneous groups. #Quote by Robert Putnam
Community quotes by Steven Petrow
#71. I'll tell you what gives me hope. After the struggle for marriage equality, the LGBTQ community has built some very powerful organizations; in particular, I'm thinking of HRC (the Human Rights Campaign), GLAAD ... but there are many, many others, too. Along with those organizations come some savvy and tested leaders who have come to understand not only how to change hearts and minds but also legislators and judges votes. #Quote by Steven Petrow
Community quotes by Laura Esquivel
#72. Look ma'am, those narcos that mutilate, torture, and kill others are no longer a part of us. They're no longer part of any family or community; they act against everyone. They are worth nothing. But when you bury a narco, you allow him to be a part of you again. He becomes dust, food, our brother once more. His body - dissolved in the earth - now sustains life again, instead of destroying it. #Quote by Laura Esquivel
Community quotes by Ian Botham
#73. Sport can bring communities together and can release a lot of pent-up emotions. #Quote by Ian Botham
Community quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#74. The life of the community, both domestically and internationally, clearly demonstrates that respect for rights, and the guarantees that follow from them, are measures of the common good that serve to evaluate the relationship between justice and injustice, development and poverty, security and conflict. #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI
Community quotes by Suzanne Woods Fisher
#75. Become Amish? If you admire our faith, strengthen yours. If you admire our sense of commitment, deepen yours. If you admire our community spirit, build your own. If you admire the simple life, cut back. If you admire deep character and enduring values, live them yourself. #Quote by Suzanne Woods Fisher
Community quotes by Arthur C. Brooks
#76. What the United States needs is for a unifying, positive, aspirational force to sweep through our national community. American conservatives have a generational opportunity to become precisely this kind of force. We have a shot, if we take it, to help every single American build a better life, and unite our nation in the process. #Quote by Arthur C. Brooks
Community quotes by Paul Goodman
#77. To learn theory by experimenting and doing.
To learn belonging by participating and self-rule.
Permissiveness in all animal behavior and interpersonal expression.
Emphasis on individual differences.
Unblocking and training feeling by plastic arts, eurythmics and dramatics.
Tolerance of races, classes, and cultures.
Group therapy as a means of solidarity, in the staff meeting and community meeting.
Taking youth seriously as an age in itself.
Community of youth and adults, minimizing 'authority.'
Educational use of the actual physical plant (buildings and farms) and the culture of the school community.
Emphasis in the curriculum on real problems and wider society, its geography and history, with actual participation in the neighboring community (village or city).
Trying for functional interrelation of activities. #Quote by Paul Goodman
Community quotes by Vaclav Havel
#78. Genuine politics
even politics worthy of the name
the only politics I am willing to devote myself to
is simply a matter of serving those around us: serving the community and serving those who will come after us. Its deepest roots are moral because it is a responsibility expressed through action, to and for the whole. #Quote by Vaclav Havel
Community quotes by Jason Flemyng
#79. A lot of pubs in London are now faceless, expensive yuppy bars. Not like when I was growing up. The pub used to be, and should be, the pillar of community. #Quote by Jason Flemyng
Community quotes by Jerry Costello
#80. This was a tragic event in human history, but by paying tribute to the Armenian community we ensure the lessons of the Armenian genocide are properly understood and acknowledged. #Quote by Jerry Costello
Community quotes by Chris Rock
#81. After I left high school and got my GED, I studied broadcast journalism for a year at a community college. #Quote by Chris Rock
Community quotes by Jesse Jackson
#82. Let nothing and nobody break your spirit. Let the unity in the community remain intact. #Quote by Jesse Jackson
Community quotes by Stephanie Rawlings-Blake
#83. I'm not blind to the fact that we have to do a better job with our relationships between the community and police. #Quote by Stephanie Rawlings-Blake
Community quotes by Henri J.M. Nouwen
#84. God is the hub of the wheel of life. The closer we come to God the closer we come to each other. The basis of community is not primarily our ideas, feelings, and emotions about each other but our common search for God. When we keep our minds and hearts directed toward God, we will come more fully together. #Quote by Henri J.M. Nouwen
Community quotes by Walt Disney
#85. The most exciting and by far the most important part of our Florida Project - in fact, the heart of everything we'll be doing in Disney World - will be our Experimental Prototype Community Of Tomorrow! We call it EPCOT. #Quote by Walt Disney
Community quotes by Condoleezza Rice
#86. Let me let you in on a little secret. There is no such thing as an international community. There are self-maximizing, self-interested states that will push their interests as far as possible. #Quote by Condoleezza Rice
Community quotes by Geoffrey Hinton
#87. In science, you can say things that seem crazy, but in the long run they can turn out to be right. We can get really good evidence, and in the end the community will come around. #Quote by Geoffrey Hinton
Community quotes by Tessa Dare
#88. Tranquility is the soul of our community."
Not a quarter mile's distance away, Susanna Finch sat in the lace-curtained parlor of the Queen's Ruby, a rooming house for gently bred young ladies. With her were the room house's newest prospective residents, a Mrs. Highwood and her three unmarried daughters.
"Here in Spindle Cove, young ladies enjoy a wholesome, improving atmosphere." Susanna indicated a knot of ladies clustered by the hearth, industriously engaged in needlework. "See? The picture of good health and genteel refinement."
In unison, the young ladies looked up from their work and smiled placid, demure smiles.
Excellent. She gave them an approving nod.
Ordinarily, the ladies of Spindle Cove would never waste such a beautiful afternoon stitching indoors. They would be rambling the countryside, or sea bathing in the cove, or climbing the bluffs. But on days like these, when new visitors came to the village, everyone understood some pretense at propriety was necessary. Susanna was not above a little harmless deceit when it came to saving a young woman's life.
"Will you take more tea?" she asked, accepting a fresh pot from Mrs. Nichols, the inn's aging proprietress. If Mrs. Highwood examined the young ladies too closely, she might notice that mild Gaelic obscenities occupied the center of Kate Taylor's sampler. Or that Violet Winterbottom's needle didn't even have thread. #Quote by Tessa Dare
Community quotes by Geraldo Rivera
#89. I did an expose of an institution for the population with developmental disabilities, and the institutions were closed as a result of the expose. Now the developmentally disabled are cared for in small community-based residences, and I've been working very hard over the decades to open as many of them as I can. #Quote by Geraldo Rivera
Community quotes by Martin McGuinness
#90. I believed that, in a situation where the community that I came from were being treated like second- and third-class citizens, that I had a responsibility to fight back against it. And I don't apologise to anybody for having done that. I think it was the right thing to do. #Quote by Martin McGuinness
Community quotes by Mel Gibson
#91. There is no excuse, nor should there be any tolerance, for anyone who thinks or expresses any kind of anti-Semitic remark. I want to apologize specifically to everyone in the Jewish community for the vitriolic and harmful words that I said to a law enforcement officer the night I was arrested on a DUI charge. #Quote by Mel Gibson
Community quotes by Rumi
#92. There is a community of the spirit. Join it, and feel the delight of walking in the noisy street and being the noise. Drink all your passion, and be a disgrace. Close both eyes to see with the other eye. #Quote by Rumi

Community quotes by Noam Chomsky
#94. A language is not just words. It's a culture, a tradition, a unification of a community, a whole history that creates what a community is. It's all embodied in a language. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Community quotes by Clay Shirky
#95. Sharing thoughts and expressions and even actions with others, possibly many others, is becoming a normal opportunity, not just for professionals and experts but for anyone who wants it. This opportunity can work on scales and over duration that were previously unimaginable. Unlike personal or communal value, public value requires not just new opportunities for old motivations; it requires governance, which is to say ways of discouraging or preventing people from wrecking either the process or the product of the group. #Quote by Clay Shirky
Community quotes by Irena Klepfisz
#96. I am an outsider, a lesbian, a shikse. The Jewish community is not my community. But as a Jew
as a Jew in a Christian, anti-Semitic society
the Jewish community is, and will always remain, my community. Enemy and ally. #Quote by Irena Klepfisz
Community quotes by Luis J Rodriguez
#97. To go against gangs or drugs is meaningless unless this is mostly done by filling in the empties, the vacuums, and stop the neglect and harm we do as detached, mean, irresponsible adults and communities. The answer is in our hands. #Quote by Luis J Rodriguez
Community quotes by Bell Hooks
#98. To build community requires vigilant awareness of the work we must continually do to undermine all the socialization that leads us to behave in ways that perpetuate domination. #Quote by Bell Hooks
Community quotes by Barbara Brown Taylor
#99. Sabbath was not a burden for him, any more than it was a private day off that he could take or leave. Sabbath was who he was. It was his stake in the ongoing life of his community, the one set day each week when he entered into communion with God and his neighbor. #Quote by Barbara Brown Taylor
Community quotes by Victor Ortiz
#100. When you're growing up, it's always nice to have someone you can relate and look up to. I'm proud of how I conduct my business and how I have accomplished all that I have accomplished, and hope that I can be a positive influence on not only the Mexican community but also young boxers and people all around the world. #Quote by Victor Ortiz
Community quotes by Henri Nouwen
#101. Solitude, community, and ministry are certainly not just for celibates! Celibates also have a hard time keeping up. #Quote by Henri Nouwen
Community quotes by Glenn Greenwald
#102. I have been to the darkest corners of government, and what they fear is light. #Quote by Glenn Greenwald
Community quotes by Eugene H. Peterson
#103. We are part of a holy community that for three thousand years and more has been formed inside and out by these words of God, words that have been heard, tasted, chewed, seen, walked. Reading Holy Scripture is totally physical. Our bodies are the means of providing our souls access to God in his revelation: eat this book. A friend reports to me that one of the early rabbis selected a different part of our bodies to make the same point; he insisted that the primary body part for taking in the Word of God is not the ears but the feet. You learn God, he said, not through your ears but through your feet: follow the Rabbi. #Quote by Eugene H. Peterson
Community quotes by Pope Francis
#104. Do we open ourselves to the Holy Spirit, so as to be an active part of our communities, or do we close in on ourselves, saying 'I have so many things to do, that's not my job'? #Quote by Pope Francis
Community quotes by Jane Fonda
#105. Instead of drifting along like a leaf in a river, understand who you are and how you come across to people and what kind of an impact you have on the people around you and the community around you and the world, so that when you go out, you can feel you have made a positive difference. #Quote by Jane Fonda
Community quotes by H.D.F. Kitto
#106. The city-state was the means by which the Greek consciously strove to make the life both of the community and of the individual more excellent than it was before. #Quote by H.D.F. Kitto
Community quotes by Henry Ward Beecher
#107. You cannot sift out the poor from the community. The poor are indispensable to the rich. #Quote by Henry Ward Beecher
Community quotes by Jose Maria Aznar
#108. We insist that the international community cannot depend on any country with weapons of mass destruction which has relations with terrorists, and which allows itself the luxury of not respecting the law and of defying the international community. #Quote by Jose Maria Aznar
Community quotes by Dhani Harrison
#109. I love getting into a studio with a bunch of friends. When the day's done, we've made something. We recognize that we're from different walks of the music industry, and there's no reason we shouldn't be collaborating. That's what I'm trying to create with thenewno2 - a sense of community. #Quote by Dhani Harrison
Community quotes by Jackie French Koller
#110. So what do we do, dress up like orderlies and sneak him out in the laundry cart?"
"Something like that."
"Oh, c'mon, Spence, that routine is as old as the Three Stooges."
"Probably older," said Spence, laughing. "Actually I was thinking of something a little less dramatic."
"Like what?"
"Like just walking out with him."
Denny stared at Spence, then shook her head. "In one of the big hospitals in New York you might get away with that," she said, "but in a little tiny hospital like Down East Community, it'll never work."
"It might, if he's dressed like a woman," said Spence.
Denny thought for a minute, then nodded. "Maybe," she said. "But where are we going to get clothes to fit him? My mom and your mom are way too thin."
Spence smiled. "Miss Lizzie," he said.
Denny's eyes opened wide. "Miss Lizzie? Do you really think she'll do it?"
"She's waiting for us right now at the edge of town," said Spence. #Quote by Jackie French Koller
Community quotes by Greg Brown
#111. I think the Internet has real potential for building community. People all around the world talking to each other can't be a bad thing. #Quote by Greg Brown
Community quotes by Lyndon B. Johnson
#112. An unspoiled river is a very rare thing in this Nation today. Their flow and vitality have been harnessed by dams and too often they have been turned into open sewers by communities and by industries. It makes us all very fearful that all rivers will go this way unless somebody acts now to try to balance our river development. #Quote by Lyndon B. Johnson
Community quotes by Muriel Barbery
#113. Language is a bountiful gift and its usage, an elaboration of community and society, is a sacred work. Language and usage evolve over time: elements change, are reborn or forgotten, and while there are instances where transgression can become the source of an even greater wealth, this does not alter the fact that to become entitled to the liberties of playfulness or enlightened misuse of language, one must first and foremost have sworn one's total allegiance. #Quote by Muriel Barbery
Community quotes by Louis MacNeice
#114. For this reason poets and artists developed the doctrine of Art for Art's Sake. The community did not appear to need them, so, tit for tat, they did not need the community. This being granted, it was no longer necessary or even desirable to make one's poetry either intelligible or sympathetic to the community. #Quote by Louis MacNeice
Community quotes by Charles De Lint
#115. Living on the street as a kid changed the way I looked at everything. It was a different time and while it had its dangers, it was nothing like it would be today. It was the Summer of Love and there was a real sense of community among us. We were hippies who looked out for each other instead of trying to rip each other off. We only had to watch out for the police who liked to roust us just on general principles, and the kids who came in from the suburbs to do a little hippie-bashing. #Quote by Charles De Lint
Community quotes by Kevin A. Patterson
#116. As a community, we should seek to create an environment that is inclusive of varying perspectives. Flat out, it makes us stronger. Diversity of thoughts and experiences opens us up to new ideas or to approaching old ideas in new ways. #Quote by Kevin A. Patterson
Community quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#117. This nothingness into which the West is sliding is not the natural end, the dying, the sinking of a flourishing community of peoples. Instead, it is again a specifically Western nothingness: a nothingness that is rebellious, violent, anti-God, and antihuman. Breaking away from all that is established, it is the utmost manifestation of all the forcesopposed to God. It is nothingness as God; no one knows its goal or its measure. Its rule is absolute. It is a creative nothingness[113] that blows its anti-God breath into all that exists, creates the illusion of waking it to new life, and at the same time sucks out its true essence[114] until it soon disintegrates into an empty husk and is discarded. Life, history, family, people, language, faith - the list could go on forever because nothingness spares nothing - all fall victim to nothingness.[115] #Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Community quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#118. The greatest part of our existence enfold in service of humanity. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Community quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#119. When self-indulgence rules, then all the community loses, and in the end, those striving for personal gains are left with nothing of any real value. Because everything of value that we will know in this life comes from our relationships with those around us. Because there is nothing material that measures against the intangibles of love and friendship. Thus, we must overcome that selfishness and we must try; we must care. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Community quotes by Genie Francis
#120. I have an appearance on a new TV show called 'Bar Karma' on Current TV. I had the most fun ever making this episode. I play someone with a multiple personality, and I think my fans will be surprised and get a real giggle out of it. It's a new model for TV in that it is interactive with the community. #Quote by Genie Francis
Community quotes by Michael Franti
#121. I try to use the attention that I get to help and to serve, and that's really what I'd see as my work - to serve my community, serve the planet, serve my family. And I think a celebrity is someone who draws the attention on themselves, and then it kind of stops there. #Quote by Michael Franti
Community quotes by Kenn Kaufman
#122. But in the early 1970s, we were not birdwatching. We were birding, and that made all the difference. We were out to seek, to discover, to chase, to learn, to find as many different kinds of birds as possible - and, in friendly competition, to try to find more of them than the next birder. We became a community of birders, with the complications that human societies always have; and although it was the birds that had brought us together, our story became a human story after all. #Quote by Kenn Kaufman
Community quotes by Jared Brock
#123. Work is easy when it's full of meaning and shared with others. #Quote by Jared Brock
Community quotes by Sophia Bush
#124. I'm looking for things that are really connected - education, both in the developing world and at home. The way that that affects communities and, in particular, women. #Quote by Sophia Bush
Community quotes by Cornel West
#125. No community dictates to any individual how to live their lives. You can criticize and you can push but people freely choose. #Quote by Cornel West
Community quotes by C.S. Lewis
#126. God is love, and that love works through men-especially through the whole community of Christians. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Community quotes by Karen Bohlin
#127. It is a mistake to tell students that their classroom is a democracy- it cannot and never will be. But children need to learn how to participate in a community and to prepare themselves for democratic citizenship. #Quote by Karen Bohlin
Community quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#128. He who loves community destroys community; he who loves the brethren builds community. #Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Community quotes by Marcus Tullius Cicero
#129. We were born to unite with our fellow men, and to join in community with the human race. #Quote by Marcus Tullius Cicero
Community quotes by Eric Clapton
#130. I have no problem with religion, and I grew up with a strong curiosity about spiritual matters, but my searching took me away from church and community worship to the internal journey. Before my recovery began, I found my God in music and the arts, with writers like Hermann Hesse, and musicians like Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, and Little Walter. #Quote by Eric Clapton
Community quotes by Starhawk
#131. Ritual affirms the common patterns, the values, the shared joys, risks, sorrows, and changes that bind a community together. Ritual links together our ancestors and descendants, those who went before with those will come after us. #Quote by Starhawk
Community quotes by Also Leopold
#132. One of the anomalies of modern ecology is the creation of two groups, each of which seems barely aware of the existence of the other. The one studies the human community, almost as if it were a separate entity, and calls its findings sociology, economics and history. The other studies the plant and animal community and comfortably relegates the hodge-podge of politics to the liberal arts. The inevitable fusion of these two lines of thought will, perhaps, constitute the outstanding advance of this century. #Quote by Also Leopold
Community quotes by Anthony Mackie
#133. If you look at the true essence of the Black Panthers, they were more of a community protection group. #Quote by Anthony Mackie
Community quotes by Brian D. McLaren
#134. Because we are rooted in a generous Christian heritage, we are eager to collaborate with people of other faiths, and those seeking the common good. Our networks of dialogue and action thus extend beyond Christian communities to persons of all faiths, as well as to communities that are not themselves faith-based. We welcome allies and allegiances wherever we find common cause ... #Quote by Brian D. McLaren
Community quotes by Lee Scott
#135. And what I am trying to say to them that through our ads and through our discussions is if you don't want us in your community, that's your choice, but don't say it's because of wages. #Quote by Lee Scott
Community quotes by Herbert V. Prochnow
#136. If you would like to live in a community in which you may have pride, then dedicate yourself in a spirit of humility and your responsibilities in that community. #Quote by Herbert V. Prochnow
Community quotes by Golda Meir
#137. I want to say to you, friends, that the Jewish community in Palestine is going to fight to the very end. If we have arms to fight with, we will fight with those, and if not, we will fight with stones in our hands. #Quote by Golda Meir
Community quotes by Marcus Samuelsson
#138. It wasn't until I came to New York and started to see the African American community, but also the Ethiopian community here, and started to eat the food, started to understand the music. I said, you know, I got to go and understand the culture. So me and my sister went. #Quote by Marcus Samuelsson
Community quotes by Bernie Sanders
#139. The debate is over. The scientific community has spoken in a virtually unanimous voice. Climate change is real. It is caused by human activity ... #Quote by Bernie Sanders
Community quotes by Tony Hendra
#140. People buy pathetic substitutes for community - sound waves in a speaker, particles bombarding a screen - all pretending to be friends or the folks next door. The vacuum they leave when the screen goes dark, when the recording ends, is filled with a loneliness worse than ever before." "What's the answer?" "Flesh and blood touching flesh and blood. Life touching life. Yours, mine, everybody's. #Quote by Tony Hendra
Community quotes by William F. Buckley Jr.
#141. Halfway through the second term of Franklin Roosevelt, the New Deal braintrusters began to worry about mounting popular concern over the national debt. In those days the size of the national debt was on everyone's mind. Indeed, Franklin Roosevelt had talked himself into office, in 1932, in part by promising to hack away at a debt which, even under the frugal Mr. Hoover, the people tended to think of as grown to menacing size. Mr. Roosevelt's wisemen worried deeply about the mounting tension ...

And then, suddenly, the academic community came to the rescue. Economists across the length and breadth of the land were electrified by a theory of debt introduced in England by John Maynard Keynes. The politicians wrung their hands in gratitude. Depicting the intoxicating political consequences of Lord Keynes's discovery, the wry cartoonist of the Washington Times Herald drew a memorable picture. In the center, sitting on a throne in front of a Maypole, was a jubilant FDR, cigarette tilted almost vertically, a grin on his face that stretched from ear to ear. Dancing about him in a circle, hands clasped together, their faces glowing with ecstasy, the braintrusters, vested in academic robes, sang the magical incantation, the great discovery of Lord Keynes: "We owe it to ourselves." With five talismanic words, the planners had disposed of the problem of deficit spending. Anyone thenceforward who worried about an increase in the national debt was just plain ignorant of the cent #Quote by William F. Buckley Jr.
Community quotes by Melinda Gates
#142. As women gain rights, families flourish, and so do societies. That connection is built on a simple truth: Whenever you include a group that's been excluded, you benefit everyone. And when you're working globally to include women and girls, who are half of every population, you're working to benefit all members of every community. Gender equity lifts everyone. Women's rights and society's health and wealth rise together. #Quote by Melinda Gates
Community quotes by Will Rogers

Community quotes by Gary Hamel
#145. Online hierarchies are inherently dynamic. The moment someone stops adding value to the community, his influence starts to wane. #Quote by Gary Hamel
Community quotes by David Suzuki
#146. Despite the international scientific community's consensus on climate change, a small number of critics continue to deny that climate change exists or that humans are causing it. Widely known as climate change "skeptics" or "deniers," these individuals are generally not climate scientists and do not debate the science with the climate scientists ... #Quote by David Suzuki
Community quotes by William J. Clinton
#147. I saw my job [as president] as to try to move the world from an unstable condition of interdependence toward more integrated cooperative world community. Therefore, my approach was to cooperate wherever possible and to build institutions of cooperation, an expanded NATO, the World Trade Organization, the Summit of the Americas, the Asian Pacific Leaders, all those, the coalition to fight in Bosnia and Kosovo, to cooperate wherever possible but to act alone if we had to. #Quote by William J. Clinton
Community quotes by Pyotr Kropotkin
#148. But today the united city has ceased to exist; there is no more communion of ideas. The town is a chance agglomeration of people who do not know one another, who have no common interest, save that of enriching themselves at the expense of one another. #Quote by Pyotr Kropotkin
Community quotes by Dalai Lama

Community quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#150. There is an all-out assault now on the Christian community in this country. #Quote by Rush Limbaugh
Community quotes by Katherine Schwarzenegger
#151. When I was younger, I played sports and went to camp. As I got older, my parents began to instill in us the importance of giving back to the community, especially those places around the world that are less fortunate than my very privileged life growing up in Los Angeles. #Quote by Katherine Schwarzenegger
Community quotes by Stephen Colbert
#152. Sure, integrating schools may sound benign. But whats the use of living in a gated community if my kids go to school and get poor all over them? #Quote by Stephen Colbert
Community quotes by Thomas Kuhn
#153. The resolution of revolutions is selection by conflict within the scientific community of the fittest way to practice future science. The net result of a sequence of such revolutionary selections, separated by periods of normal research, is the wonderfully adapted set of instruments we call modern scientific knowledge. #Quote by Thomas Kuhn
Community quotes by Dave Hutchinson
#154. The Community was dull. It was nice and it was quiet, if you lived in the right places, and there was full employment and nobody was starving and everybody was happy. It was no wonder people wanted to leave. #Quote by Dave Hutchinson
Community quotes by Bernard Hare
#155. It was time to take the best bits from them all and build something delicious: the spirituality of the Hindus, the community spirit and family ties of the Muslims, the ancient wisdom of the Chinese, the love of freedom and equality of the Afro-Caribbeans, the work ethic of the Jews, the bloody-mindedness and wry humour of the Australians, the blarney of the Irish, the passion of the Scots, the unorthodoxy of the Welsh, combined with our own English love of justice, fair play and democracy. Put them all together and you had a vision for the future, a direction, which Bokononism could exploit. #Quote by Bernard Hare
Community quotes by William P. Young
#156. You cannot heal yourself. You cannot heal anybody else. We're designed to do this in community because we were created inside community for community by community. #Quote by William P. Young
Community quotes by Jerry Greenfield
#157. If your support the community, they will support you. #Quote by Jerry Greenfield
Community quotes by Misty Copeland
#158. 'The Firebird' just symbolizes a lot for me and my career. It was one of the first really big principal roles that I was ever given an opportunity to dance with American Ballet Theatre, and it was a huge step for the African-American community, I think, within the classical ballet world. #Quote by Misty Copeland
Community quotes by John Maynard Keynes
#159. Dangerous acts can be done safely in a community which thinks and feels rightly, which would be the way to hell if they were executed by those who think and feel wrongly. #Quote by John Maynard Keynes
Community quotes by Rob Brezsny
#160. The average American child sees 20,000 murders in TV before reaching age 18. This is considered normal. Every community has video rental stores filled with multimillion-dollar films that depict people doing terrible things to each other. If you read newspapers, you have every right to believe that Bad Nasty Things compose 90 percent of the human experience. But you will be hard-pressed to find more than a few novels, films, news stories, and TV shows that dare to depict life as a gift whose purpose is to enrich the human soul. #Quote by Rob Brezsny
Community quotes by Mikhail Gorbachev
#161. The emerging 'environmentalization' of our civilization and the need for vigorous action in the interest of the entire global community will inevitably have multiple political consequences. Perhaps the most important of them will be a gradual change in the status of the United Nations. Inevitably, it must assume some aspects of a world government. #Quote by Mikhail Gorbachev
Community quotes by Henry Louis Gates
#162. Well, certainly one of the ironies of the success of affirmative action is that the middle class within the black community no longer lives within 'black community' by and large. #Quote by Henry Louis Gates
Community quotes by Cory Monteith
#163. I was 20 years old, working as a roofer and a telemarketer and driving a taxi, just barely getting by. A friend of a friend suggested I try acting. I was like, 'Why? What am I going to do? Community theater?' But I took a class, and the teacher thought that I had potential, so I moved to Vancouver and started auditioning. #Quote by Cory Monteith
Community quotes by Jim Gerlach
#164. Since its enactment in the weeks following the September 11 terrorist attacks, the tools in the Patriot Act have been used by law enforcement to stop more than 400 terrorist threats to our families and communities. #Quote by Jim Gerlach
Community quotes by Ronald P. Carver
#165. I believe that the universe was formed around 15 billion years ago and that humans have evolved from their apelike ancestors over the past few million years. I believe we are more likely to live a good life if all humans try to work together in a world community, preserving planet earth. When decisions for groups are made in this world, I believe that the democratic process should be used. To protect the individual, I believe in freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, freedom from religion, freedom of inquiry, and a wall of separation between church and state. When making decisions about what is right or wrong, I believe I should use my intelligence to reason about the likely consequences of my actions. I believe that I should try to increase the happiness of everyone by caring for other people and finding ways to cooperate. Never should my actions discriminate against people simply because of their race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age, or national origin. I believe that ideas about what is right and wrong will change with education, so I am prepared to continually question ideas using evidence from experience and science. I believe there is no valid evidence to support claims for the existence of supernatural entities and deities. I will use these beliefs to guide my thinking and my actions until I find good reasons for revising them or replacing them with other beliefs that are more valid. #Quote by Ronald P. Carver
Community quotes by Eric Greitens
#166. But it's also a human tendency - and a pronounced tendency in America - to become enamored of our tools and lose sight of their place. Think about a couple of the basic functions of any community: educating children and policing the streets. Today we spend huge effort and millions of dollars to bring more technology into the classroom, when the great majority of students in the great majority of circumstances can learn almost all of what they need to know with a supportive family, a pencil, some paper, good books, and a great teacher. The schools that produced Shakespeare and Jefferson and Darwin had some writing materials, some printed books - and that was it. #Quote by Eric Greitens
Community quotes by E.L. Doctorow
#167. Many historians have noted an interesting phenomenon in American life in the years immediately after a war. In the councils of government fierce partisanship replaces the necessary political coalitions of wartime. IN the great arena of social relations -- business, labour, the community -- violence rises, fear and recrimination dominate public discussion, passion prevails over reason. Many historians have noted this phenomenon. It is attributed to the continuance beyond the end of the war of the war hysteria. Unfortunately, the necessary emotional fever for fighting a war cannot be turned off like a water tap. Enemies must continue to be found. The mind and heart cannot be demobilised as quickly as the platoon. On the contrary, like a fiery furnace at white heat, it takes a considerable time to cool. #Quote by E.L. Doctorow
Community quotes by Gillian Jacobs
#168. On the set of 'Community,' we quote 'Community' to each other. We're a lost cause. We're like a bunch of little kids running around and yelling things. #Quote by Gillian Jacobs

Community quotes by Kathleen Hanna
#170. I think one things that's really important in the boy community or whatever, or the boy things, is like, to realize that oppression is a two-way street. You know what I mean? That it's like, white men are really missing out - I don't wanna say white men are oppressed but ... #Quote by Kathleen Hanna
Community quotes by Mark Twain
#171. The 'Memphis Avalanche' reports that the Professor's course met with pretty general approval in the community; knowing that the law was powerless, in the actual condition of public sentiment, to protect him, he protected himself. #Quote by Mark Twain
Community quotes by Pope Leo XIII
#172. Inasmuch as the domestic household is antecedent, as well as in idea as in fact, the family must necessarily have rights and duties which are prior than those of the Community and founded more immediately in nature. #Quote by Pope Leo XIII
Community quotes by Ted Nugent
#173. I have obviously failed to galvanize and prod, if not shame enough Americans to be ever vigilant not to let a Chicago communist-raised, communist-educated, communist-nurtured subhuman mongrel like the ACORN community organizer gangster Barack Hussein Obama to weasel his way into the top office of authority in the United States of America, #Quote by Ted Nugent
Community quotes by Brian D. McLaren
#174. If a spiritual community only points back to where it has been or if it only digs in its heels where it is now, it is a dead end or a parking lot, not a way. #Quote by Brian D. McLaren

#175. I'm just waiting to be 85 and be in a pajama community. Everyone's welcome to join me. #Quote by Lena Dunham
Community quotes by George Mason
#176. That elections of members to serve as representatives of the people, in assembly, ought to be free; and that all men, having sufficient evidence of permanent common interest with, and attachment to, the community, have the right of suffrage, and cannot be taxed or deprived of their property for public uses, without their own consent, or that of their representives so elected, nor bound by any law to which they have not, in like manner, assembled, for the public good. #Quote by George Mason
Community quotes by Barack Obama
#177. The true test of the American ideal is whether we're able to recognize our failings and then rise together to meet the challenges of our time. Whether we allow ourselves to be shaped by events and history, or whether we act to shape them. Whether chance of birth or circumstance decides life's big winners and losers, or whether we build a community where, at the very least, everyone has a chance to work hard, get ahead, and reach their dreams. #Quote by Barack Obama
Community quotes by Jonathan Sacks
#178. Religion creates community, community creates altruism and altruism turns us away from self and towards the common good ... There is something about the tenor of relationships within a religious community that makes it the best tutorial in citizenship and good neighborliness. #Quote by Jonathan Sacks
Community quotes by Edward Snowden
#179. The way the United States intelligence community operates is it doesn't limit itself to the protection of the homeland. It doesn't limit itself to countering terrorist threats, countering nuclear proliferation. It's also used for economic espionage, for political spying to gain some knowledge of what other countries are doing. #Quote by Edward Snowden

Community quotes by Junior Seau
#185. Too many athletes are living in a tiny window. They have no vision for themselves - what they can be outside of football and what they can mean to a community. They just don't know any better. My hopes and dreams are unlimited. #Quote by Junior Seau
Community quotes by Andrew Weil

Community quotes by Chaim Perelman
#189. One can indeed try to obtain a particular result either by the use of violence or by speech aimed at securing the adherence of minds. It is in terms of this alternative that the opposition between spiritual freedom and constraint is most clearly seen. The use of argumentation implies that one has renounced resorting to force alone, that value is attached to gaining the adherence of one's interlocutor by means of reasoned persuasion, and that one is not regarding him as an object, but appealing to his free judgment. Recourse to argumentation assumes the establishment of a community of minds, which, while it lasts, excludes the use of violence. #Quote by Chaim Perelman
Community quotes by Michael Specter
#190. When most members of a community are vaccinated, they protect those who are not by eliminating the viral reservoirs in the population. The effect is known as 'herd immunity.' #Quote by Michael Specter
Community quotes by Percy Bysshe Shelley
#191. Thou demandest what is love? It is that powerful attraction towards all that we conceive, or fear, or hope beyond ourselves, when we find within our own thoughts the chasm of an insufficient void, and seek to awaken in all things that are, a community with what we experience within ourselves. #Quote by Percy Bysshe Shelley
Community quotes by Erin Hunter
#192. You have no understanding of the warrior code at all. What you've done here proves it. You've risked the lives of young kits ... by leaving them alone here. Anything could have happened to them. They could have been lost. They could have died. My kits could have died. But you didn't just betray me. You betrayed the entire Clan. You did all this ... and you never considered how it would make any of us feel. The Clan is a family, Sol. A community. And you're incapable of thinking about anyone but yourself. #Quote by Erin Hunter
Community quotes by Alice Walker
#193. There could be no happy community in which there was one unhappy child. #Quote by Alice Walker
Community quotes by M. Starks
#194. It is the first time I realize just how much this has taken a toll on my parents. Not the toll of recovering from cancer, or worrying about the bills. The toll paid with fear. A way of life altered completely. Our lives are now on display for those in the community to judge.

I imagine there is a before and after for my parents as well. Before the girls went missing and our lives were normal. After one of the kids is found and the other isn't. #Quote by M. Starks
Community quotes by Doug Ose
#195. Currently under FCC policy, indecency determinations hinge on two factors. First, material must describe or depict sexual or excretory organs or activities. Second, the material must be patently offensive as measured by contemporary community standards for the broadcast medium. #Quote by Doug Ose
Community quotes by Daniel Berrigan
#196. I think that today young people come toward marriage as growing, searching men and women; and suddenly marriage and parenthood is represented as a stoppage of all that. I mean, young married people become members of a social community, and come under the authority of a political community. Once children come, even some of our more radical youth feel themselves no longer so free to protest various wrongs - because they need work and on their children's account feel more dependent on, more vulnerable to, the power of a town or city or county. They are expected to join with other consumers. They are expected to prepare the next generation for the next wars and for an expansion of the same, the very same community...
I think the Church as I have experienced it during, let's say, thirty years of membership in my order, the Church is speaking less and less to the realities before us. Just one instance is the Church's failure to face and deal with the social and political difficulties of believers. And then when one moves out to another scene, as I have been doing, and meets the people of very mixed religious and ethnic backgrounds, one sees how tragically unresponsive the Church has been - because it has not heard and been moved by the ethical struggles of people on the 'outside,' yet maybe nearer to Christ's own struggle. More and more I see the need for flexibility in the Church. And I feel that one's responsibility to the Church can no longer be expressed by the priest's or #Quote by Daniel Berrigan

Community quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#198. The way of acquiescence leads to moral and spiritual suicide. The way of violence leads to bitterness in the survivors and brutality in the destroyers. But, the way of nonviolence leads to redemption and the creation of the beloved community. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.

Community quotes by Marquita Burke-DeJesus
#200. Suffering reminds us of our brokenness, our humanity. It disarms us of our self-absorption and magnifies our need for one another. #Quote by Marquita Burke-DeJesus
