Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by A.E. Samaan
#1. DARWIN'S "SACRED CAUSE"?
Much ink has been dedicated to determining Charles Darwin's role in "scientific racism." The only way to empirically and scientifically determine his role is to organize the events as a timeline, and thus placing them into context of historical events. Political analysis without historical context is all sail and no rudder. In America we are constantly made aware that both Abraham Lincoln and Charles Darwin were born on the same day, in the same year, February 12, 1809. Adrian Desmond and James Moore famous 2009 book, "Darwin's Sacred Cause," leverages this factoid in an effort to place Charles Darwin at par with Abraham Lincoln in the abolition of slavery. This fraudulently steals away credit from Abraham Lincoln, who took a bullet to the head for the cause, and transfers it by inference to an aristocrat whom remained in his plush abode throughout the conflict and never lifted a finger for the cause. #Quote by A.E. Samaan
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by C.S. Lewis
#2. Some people write heavily, some write lightly. I prefer the light approach because I believe there is a great deal of false reverence about. There is too much solemnity and intensity in dealing with sacred matters; too much speaking in holy tones. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#3. Children are sacred beings. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by Margaret Feinberg
#4. Slowly, God is opening my eyes to needs all around me. In Scripture, God revisits this issue of caring for the poor- an echo that repeats itself from Genesis to Revelation. The Bible acknowledges that the poor will always be part of society, but God takes on their cause. The Mosaic law of the Old Testament is filled with regulations to prevent and eliminate poverty. The poor were given the right to glean- to take produce from the unharvested edges of the fields, a portion of the tithes, and a daily wage. The law prevented permanent slavery by releasing Jewish bondsmen and women on the sabbatical and Jubilee year and forbade charging interest on loans. In one of his most tender acts, God made sure that the poor- the aliens, widows, and orphans- were all invited to the feasts. #Quote by Margaret Feinberg
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by Kathryn E. Livingston
#5. It's not just about recognizing how 'precious' every moment is, or about 'living for today.' It's about finding the sacred center of now, and living there, moment to moment, always. #Quote by Kathryn E. Livingston
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by Arthur L. Herman
#6. Millions of Americans cannot tell you who lived at Mount Vernon or who wrote the Declaration of Independence - let alone the Emancipation Proclamation. But they know that to be 'a Benedict Arnold' is to be a traitor of the deepest dye - someone who coldly betrays not only a sacred cause but every moral scruple along the way. #Quote by Arthur L. Herman
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by Natasha Larry
#7. If I do decide to have a Girl's Gone Wild moment, I want it to be with some hot young thing, not a senior citizen-Jaycie Lerner #Quote by Natasha Larry
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by Aberjhani
#8. This is what our love is––a sacred pattern of unbroken unity sewn flawlessly invisible inside all other images, thoughts, smells, and sounds. #Quote by Aberjhani
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by C.S. Lewis
#9. When the subject is sacred, proud and clever men may come to think that the outsiders who don't know it are not merely inferior to them in skill but lower in God's eyes; as the priests said, 'All that rabble who are not experts in the Torah are accursed.' and as this pride increases, the 'subject' or study which confers such privilege will grow more and more complicated, the list of things forbidden will increase, till to get through a single day without supposed sin becomes like an elaborate step-dance, and this horrible network breeds self-righteousness in some and haunting anxiety in others. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by Thomas S. Monson
#10. Through humble prayer, diligent preparation, and faithful service, we can succeed in our sacred callings. #Quote by Thomas S. Monson
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by A.S. King
#11. Then, Valentine's Day came. There was a dance, and balloons and flowers and cheaply made rings and all sorts of lame teddy bears and stuffed animals, as if teenagers can be wooed with the same shit as five-year-olds. It was the Dietzes' most hated holiday of the year, too, because it dealt with the consumerization of something sacred. Mom and Dad had agreed never to buy each other anything on the day. It was a false, Hallmark holiday. A sham. A moneymaking sideshow for insecure couples who didn't have true love. I agreed with this, for the most part. #Quote by A.S. King
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by Thomas S. Monson
#12. I add my personal witness: Our missionaries are not salesmen with wares to peddle; rather, they are servants of the Most High God, with testimonies to bear, truths to teach, and souls to save. Each missionary who goes forth in response to a sacred call becomes a servant of the Lord whose work this truly is. Do not fear, young men, for He will be with you. He never fails. He has promised: "I will go before your face. I will be on your right hand and on your left, and my Spirit shall be in your hearts, and mine angels round about you, to bear you up" #Quote by Thomas S. Monson
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by Charles Darwin
#13. I will here give a brief sketch of the progress of opinion on the Origin of Species. Until recently the great majority of naturalists believed that species were immutable productions, and had been separately created. This view has been ably maintained by many authors. Some few naturalists, on the other hand, have believed that species undergo modification, and that the existing forms of life are the descendants by true generation of pre existing forms. Passing over allusions to the subject in the classical writers (Aristotle, in his "Physicae Auscultationes" (lib.2, cap.8, s.2), after remarking that rain does not fall in order to make the corn grow, any more than it falls to spoil the farmer's corn when threshed out of doors, applies the same argument to organisation; and adds (as translated by Mr. Clair Grece, who first pointed out the passage to me), "So what hinders the different parts (of the body) from having this merely accidental relation in nature? as the teeth, for example, grow by necessity, the front ones sharp, adapted for dividing, and the grinders flat, and serviceable for masticating the food; since they were not made for the sake of this, but it was the result of accident. And in like manner as to other parts in which there appears to exist an adaptation to an end. Wheresoever, therefore, all things together (that is all the parts of one whole) happened like as if they were made for the sake of something, these were preserved, having been appropriately constit #Quote by Charles Darwin
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by Michael Ben Zehabe
#14. If this letter system works, it should be reproducible and consistent. If this letter system works, it should be demonstrated in biblical narrative - with consistency. It has. It does. It will. For instance: Daniel interpreted the handwriting on the Babylonian wall. (Da 5:1-31) The question has always been, "What method would produce the same interpretation?"
If you will pull out your Strong's Concordance and translate those same four words, you won't get the same results that Daniel got. Was Daniel using a different method than modern Christians? Yes, obviously. #Quote by Michael Ben Zehabe
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by Elizabeth S.  Eiler
#15. Women have always cradled within their bodies secret mysteries of life, death, and rebirth and the healing, grounding, and balancing powers of our Mother in the Earth. We have held these mysteries sacred within us as we would carry babies in our wombs. #Quote by Elizabeth S. Eiler
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by Philip S. Skell
#16. I recently asked more than seventy eminent researchers if they would have done I their work differently if they had thought Darwin's theory was wrong. The responses were all the same: no. I also examined the outstanding biodiscoveries of the past century: the discovery of the double helix; the characterization of the ribosome: the mapping of genomes; research on medications and drug reactions: improvements in food production and sanitation; the development of new surgeries; and others. I even queried biologists working in areas where one would expect the Darwinian paradigm to have most benefited research, such as the emergence of resistance to antibiotics and pesticides. Here, as elsewhere, I found that Darwin's theory had provided no discernible guidance, but was brought in, after the breakthroughs, as an interesting narrative gloss. #Quote by Philip S. Skell
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by James Luceno
#17. Consider the mind-set of the anarchist who plans to sacrifice himself for a cause.
For the weeks, months, possibly years leading up to the day he straps a thermal detonator to his chest and executes his task, he has lived in and strengthened by the secret he carries, knowing the toll his act will take. So it has been for the Sith, residing in a secret, sacred place of knowledge for one thousand years, and knowing the toll our acts will take. This is power, Sidious. Where the Jedi, by contrast, are like beings who, as they move among the healthy, keep secret the fact that they are dying of a terminal illness. The true power needn't bare claws or fangs, or announce itself with snarls and throaty barks, Sidious. It can subdue with manacles of shimmer silk, purposeful charisma and political astuteness"
-Darth Plagueis #Quote by James Luceno
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by Charles Galton Darwin
#18. The evolution of the human race will not be accomplished in the ten thousand years of tame animals, but in the million years of wild animals, because man is, and always will be, a wild animal. #Quote by Charles Galton Darwin

#19. Well, my mother did teach me a killer family recipe for a Bloody Mary. I guess I can make that next Thanksgiving-Haylee Mitchell #Quote by Natasha Larry

#20. The sacred h"s : hope, happiness and health. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by Edward Said
#21. Osama bin Laden, who is a Saudi, feels himself to be a patriot because the U.S. has forces in Saudi Arabia, which is sacred because it is the land of the prophet Mohammed. #Quote by Edward Said
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by Jacky Fleming
#22. Darwin said if you made a list of eminent men, next of a list of eminent women, it was obvious that men were better at everything. #Quote by Jacky Fleming
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by Ayn Rand
#23. Howard Roark built a temple to the human spirit. He saw man as strong, proud, clean, wise and fearless. He saw man as a heroic being. And he built a temple to that. A temple is a place where man is to experience exaltation. He thought that exaltation comes from the consciousness of being guiltless, of seeing the truth and achieving it, of living up to one's highest possibility, of knowing no shame and having no cause for shame, of being able to stand naked in full sunlight. He thought that exaltation means joy and that joy is man's birthright. He tho ... ught that a place built as a setting for man is a sacred place. That is what Howard Roark thought of man and of exaltation. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by Rachel Carson
#24. From a ball of mud taken from a birds plumage, Charles Darwin raised 82 separate plants, belonging to five distinct species! #Quote by Rachel Carson
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by Charles Darwin
#25. But then arises the doubt, can the mind of man, which has, as I fully believe been developed from a mind as low as that possessed by the lowest animal, be trusted when it draws such grand conclusions? #Quote by Charles Darwin
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by Lucy H. Pearce
#26. The deep Feminine, the mystery of consciousness, She who is life, is longing for our transformation as much as we are. She holds back, allowing us free reign to choose, nudging us occasionally with synchronicities, illness, births and deaths… But when we make space for Her, she rushes into all the gaps, engulfing us with her desire for life and expression. This is what She longs for, this is what we are for: experiencing the Feminine through ourselves. We simply need to slow down, and find where to put our conscious attention. And it is this, this willingness to look again, this willingness to put consciousness onto our places of unconscious, to express what we have always avoided, which starts the process of unblocking, so that She may flow through. #Quote by Lucy H. Pearce
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#27. Never own defeat in a sacred cause and make up your minds henceforth that you will be pure and that you will find a response from God. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by Lucy H. Pearce
#28. Once we start to work with Feminine power we begin to see that it is not our minds that are in control of this power – it ebbs and flows with the movements of the planets, the procession of the seasons, the moons and tides, our own internal cycles of menstruality, anniversaries, the events around us. All these and more impact our experience and expressions of power. We learn to become aware of these various patterns and their impact on us and work more consciously with rather than against or in spite of them. We learn that they are all part of the same process. We open towards the energy, rather than shut down to it. We learn to trust the flow. #Quote by Lucy H. Pearce
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by Hillary Johnson
#29. Emulating the persistence and care of Darwin, we must collect facts with open-minded watchulness, unbiased by crotchets or notions; fact on fact, instance on instance, experiment upon experiment; facts which neatly fit the idea of their relationship, may establish a general principle."

Sir William Osler, Counsels and Ideals #Quote by Hillary Johnson
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by Victoria Finlay
#30. In 1879 the Bengali scholar S.M. Tagore compiled a more extensive list of ruby colors from the Purana sacred texts: 'like the China rose, like blood, like the seeds of the pomegranate, like red lead, like the red lotus, like saffron, like the resin of certain trees, like the eyes of the Greek partridge or the Indian crane…and like the interior of the half-blown water lily.' With so many gorgeous descriptive possibilities it is curious that in English the two ancient names for rubies have come to sound incredibly ugly. #Quote by Victoria Finlay
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#31. There is a progression of understanding vis-a-vis pro football that varies drastically with the factor of distance
physical, emotional, intellectual and every other way. Which is exactly the way it should be, in the eyes of the amazingly small number of people who own and control the game, because it is this finely managed distance factor that accounts for the high-profit mystique that blew the sacred institution of baseball off its 'national pastime' pedestal in less than fifteen years. #Quote by Hunter S. Thompson
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by Julia Fine
#32. Imagine all your life the earth is green and brown and quiet. Your days pass slowly. You celebrate the sun. All magic is of trees and dappled shadows, all mountains peaked eruptions from an old ancestral earth, a ground so sacred there has been no cause to name it. #Quote by Julia Fine
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by Michael Mirdad
#33. The completion of the soul's journey is proportionate to our ability to integrate spirituality the heart) and sexuality (the body). #Quote by Michael Mirdad
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by Margaret Mitchell
#34. Do I understand, sir, that you mean the Cause for which our heroes have died is not sacred?'
If you were run over by a railroad train your death wouldn't sanctify the railroad company, would it?' asked Rhett and his voice sounded as if he were humbly seeking information. #Quote by Margaret Mitchell
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by C.S. Lewis
#35. No net less wide than a man's whole heart, nor less fine of mesh than love, will hold the sacred Fish. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by Dr. Willie Parker
#36. The part of you that's like Gob is the part that makes a choice. That says, I choose to. or, I choose not to. That's what's sacred. #Quote by Dr. Willie Parker
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by S.L. Jennings
#37. Blaine, the scariest part about love isn't love itself. It's letting go and plunging into the unknown. It's trusting someone with the very most sacred part of your heart. It's allowing yourself to feel something foreign and uncharted, despite how much it terrifies the hell out of you #Quote by S.L. Jennings
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by Livy
#38. There, publicly throwing off the mask under which he had hitherto concealed his real character and feelings, he made a speech painting in vivid the cause of her death was an even bitterer and more dreadful thing than the death itself. He went on to speak of the king's arrogant and tyrannical behavior; of the sufferings of the commons condemned to labor underground clearing or constructing ditches and sewers; of gallant Romans - soldiers who had beaten in battle all neighboring peoples - robbed of their swords and turned into stone-cutters and artisans. He reminded them of the foul murder of Servius Tullius, of the daughter who drove her carriage over her father's corpse, in violation of the most sacred of relationships - a crime which God alone could punish. Doubtless he told them of other, and worse, things, brought to his mind in the heat of the moment and by the sense of this latest outrage, which still lived in his eye and pressed upon his heart; but a mere historian can hardly record them.
The effect of his words was immediate: the populace took fire, and were brought to demand the abrogation of the king's authority and the exile of himself and his family. #Quote by Livy
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by William S. Burroughs
#39. I awoke from The Sickness at the age of forty-five, calm and sane, and in reasonably good health except for a weakened liver and the look of borrowed flesh common to all who survive The Sickness ... When I speak of drug addiction I do not refer to keif, marijuana or any preparation of hashish, mescaline, Banisteriopsis caapi, LSD6, Sacred Mushrooms or any other drugs of the hallucinogen group ... There is no evidence that the use of any hallucinogen results in physical dependence. #Quote by William S. Burroughs
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by S. Kelley Harrell
#40. Sacred space" is another way of saying "with intention. #Quote by S. Kelley Harrell
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by Joseph Dalton Hooker
#41. I am above the forest region, amongst grand rocks & such a torrent as you see in Salvator Rosa's paintings vegetation all a scrub of rhodos. with Pines below me as thick & bad to get through as our Fuegian Fagi on the hill tops, & except the towering peaks of P. S. [perpetual snow] that, here shoot up on all hands there is little difference in the mt scenery - here however the blaze of Rhod. flowers and various colored jungle proclaims a differently constituted region in a naturalist's eye & twenty species here, to one there, always are asking me the vexed question, where do we come from?
[Letter to Charles Darwin 24 Jun 1849] #Quote by Joseph Dalton Hooker
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by S.J. Kincaid
#42. Are you guys seriously messing around with real weapons?" she exclaimed. "It's like you want Darwin Awards!"

Tom flushed, and set his gun back on its hook. "It's not like we were going to start a dynastic war or something."

"Yeah," Vik said guiltily, returning his own weapon. #Quote by S.J. Kincaid
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by Margaret Mitchell
#43. The cause didn't seem sacred to her. The war did not seem to be holy affair. #Quote by Margaret Mitchell
Darwin S Sacred Cause quotes by Craig S. Barnes
#44. God is often silent when we prefer that he speak and he interrupts us when we prefer that he stay silent. His ways are not our ways. To live with the sacred God of creation means that we conduct our lives with a God who does not explain himself to us. It means that we worship a God who is often mysterious - too mysterious to fit our formulas for better living. It means that God is not our best friend our secret lover or our good-luck charm. He is God. #Quote by Craig S. Barnes
