Highest quotes by Edmund Spenser
#1. What more felicitie can fall to creature Than to enjoy delight with libertie, And to be lord of all the workes of Nature, To raine in th' aire from earth to highest skie, To feed on flowres and weeds of glorious feature. #Quote by Edmund Spenser
Highest quotes by Debasish Mridha
#2. The highest freedom of mind comes from becoming non-judgmental. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Highest quotes by Rudolf Steiner
#3. Our highest endeavor must be to develop free human beings who are able of themselves to impart purpose and direction to their lives. The need for imagination, a sense of truth, and a feeling of responsibility - these three forces are the very nerve of education. #Quote by Rudolf Steiner
Highest quotes by Thomas Chalmers
#4. I have no sympathy whatever with those who would grudge our workmen and our common people the very highest acquisitions which their taste or their time or their inclination would lead them to realize. #Quote by Thomas Chalmers
Highest quotes by Alexander Pope
#5. Court-virtues bear, like gems, the highest rate,
Born where Heav'n influence scarce can penetrate.
In life's low vale, the soil the virtues like,
They please as beauties, here as wonders strike. #Quote by Alexander Pope
Highest quotes by Arthur Desmond

Highest quotes by Simon Winchester
#8. According to an equally lovingly preserved English translation of the prospectus, the purpose of Ibuka's firm was "to establish an ideal factory that stresses a spirit of freedom and open-mindedness, and where engineers with sincere motivation can exercise their technological skills to the highest level." We shall, he pledged, "eliminate any unfair profit-seeking exercises" and "seek expansion not only for the sake of size." Further, "we shall carefully select employees ... we shall avoid to have [sic] formal positions for the mere sake of having them, and shall place emphasis on a person's ability, performance and character, so that each #Quote by Simon Winchester

Highest quotes by John Stuart Mill
#12. Though it is only in a very imperfect state of the world's arrangements that anyone can best serve the happiness of others by the absolute sacrifice of his own, yet, so long as the world is in that imperfect state, I fully acknowledge that the readiness to make such a sacrifice is the highest virtue which can be found in man. #Quote by John Stuart Mill
Highest quotes by Deborah Blake
#13. A spiritual path is a living thing, and living things grow and change. Many people fear change when it involves their spiritual practice or theology for various reasons. However, growth involves change. If we do not grow, we risk begrudgingly plodding down a path that doesn't serve our highest good. We must allow ourselves to expand, revise, and find our own spiritual truth and path. A healthy spiritual path is one that includes constant growth. Growth almost inherently includes change. #Quote by Deborah Blake
Highest quotes by Mark Weiser
#14. For thirty years most interface design, and most comptuer design, has been headed down the path of the "dramatic" machine. Its highest idea is to make a computer so exciting, so wonderful, so interesting, that we never want to be without it. A less-traveled path I call the "invisible"; its highest idea is to make a computer so imbedded, so fitting, so natural, that we use it without even thinking about it. #Quote by Mark Weiser
Highest quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#15. Konstantin Levin regarded his brother as a man of immense intellect and culture, as generous in the highest sense of the word, and possessed of a special faculty for working for the public good. But in the depths of his heart, the older he became, and the more intimately he knew his brother, the more and more frequently the thought struck him that this faculty of working for the public good, of which he felt himself utterly devoid, was possibly not so much a quality as a lack of something - not a lack of good, honest, noble desires and tastes, but a lack of vital force, of what is called heart, of that impulse which drives a man to choose someone out of the innumerable paths of life, and to care only for that one. The better he knew his brother, the more he noticed that Sergey Ivanovitch, and many other people who worked for the public welfare, were not led by an impulse of the heart to care for the public good, but reasoned from intellectual considerations that it was a right thing to take interest in public affairs, and consequently took interest in them. Levin was confirmed in this generalization by observing that his brother did not take questions affecting the public welfare or the question of the immortality of the soul a bit more to heart than he did chess problems, or the ingenious construction of a new machine. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Highest quotes by Brian Tracy
#16. Your self-confidence increases when you know you are living your life according to your highest values. #Quote by Brian Tracy
Highest quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#17. The highest education is that which does not merely give us information but makes our life in harmony with all existence. #Quote by Rabindranath Tagore
Highest quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#18. In every animal that walks upright, the deficiency of the Fluids that fill the Muscles appears first in the highest Part: The Face first grows lank and wrinkled; then the neck; then the breast and arms; the lower parts continuing to the last as plump as ever; so that covering all above with a basket, and regarding only what is below the girdle, it is impossible of two women to know an old from a young one. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Highest quotes by Rutger Bregman
#19. Whether it's the growth of the economy, audience shares, publications – slowly but surely, quality is being replaced by quantity. ... And driving it all is a force sometimes called "liberalism," an ideology that has been all but hollowed out. ... Freedom may be our highest ideal, but ours has become an empty freedom. Our fear of moralizing in any form has made morality a taboo in the public debate. The public arena should be "neutral," after all – yet never before has it been so paternalistic. On every street corner we're baited to booze, binge, borrow, buy, toil, stress, and swindle. Whatever we may tell ourselves about freedom of speech, our values are suspiciously close to those touted by precisely the companies that can pay for prime-time advertising. #Quote by Rutger Bregman
Highest quotes by Jessica Valenti
#20. If you spend any amount of time doing media analysis, it's clear that the most frenzied moral panic surrounding young women's sexuality comes from the mainstream media, which loves to report about how promiscuous girls are, whether they're acting up on spring break, getting caught topless on camera, or catching all kinds of STIs. Unsurprisingly, these types of articles and stories generally fail to mention that women are attending college at the highest rates in history, and that we're the majority of undergraduate and master's students. Well-educated and socially engaged women just don't make for good headlines, it seems. #Quote by Jessica Valenti
Highest quotes by Liane Moriarty
#21. The lowest point of your life can lead to the highest. #Quote by Liane Moriarty
Highest quotes by Michael Cadnum
#22. When my main character in 'Heat' climbs the tower, the highest diving platform, hoping to resume competitive diving after an injury, I am there with her, sensing the cold grit under her instep. The details are what matter - they are the experience. #Quote by Michael Cadnum
Highest quotes by William Dunbar
#23. Lament for the Makaris (Makers)

I who enjoyed good health and gladness
am overwhelmed now by life's terrible sickness
and enfeebled with infirmity ...
how the fear of Death dismays me!

our presence here is mere vainglory;
the false world is but transitory;
the flesh is frail; the Fiend runs free ...
how the fear of Death dismays me!

the state of man is changeable:
now sound, now sick, now blithe, now dull,
now manic, now devoid of glee ...
how the fear of Death dismays me!

no state on earth stands here securely;
as the wild wind shakes the willow tree,
so wavers this world's vanity ...
how the fear of Death dismays me!

Death leads the knights into the field
(unarmored under helm and shield)
sole Victor of each red mêlée ...
how the fear of Death dismays me!

that strange, despotic Beast
tears from its mother's breast
the babe, full of benignity ...
how the fear of Death dismays me!

He takes the champion of the hour,
the captain of the highest tower,
the beautiful damsel in her tower ...
how the fear of Death dismays me!

He spares no lord for his elegance,
nor clerk for his intelligence;
His dreadful stroke no man can flee ...
how the fear of Death dismays me!

Highest quotes by Sidney Sheinberg
#24. I have the highest respect for stars and auteur directors. But I don't want to work with people who only invite me to the preview. We want to be in the collaborative movie business, not the financing one. #Quote by Sidney Sheinberg
Highest quotes by Joseph Addison
#25. True religion and virtue give a cheerful and happy turn to the mind, admit of all true pleasures, and even procure for us the highest. #Quote by Joseph Addison
Highest quotes by Mark Twain
#26. The highest pleasure to be got out of freedom, and having nothing to do, is labor. #Quote by Mark Twain
Highest quotes by Martina Hingis
#27. I was never happy that my injuries cut my career short and ultimately forced my decision to step away from tennis. I have enjoyed my time away from the court, a period that has allowed me to experience a different side of life. However, I miss the game and the challenge of competing at the highest level of tennis, and I want to gauge whether I can stay healthy and compete against today's top players. #Quote by Martina Hingis
Highest quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#28. The highest art is always the most religious, and the greatest artist is always a devout person. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Highest quotes by Joe Biden
#29. Justice [Sandra Day] O'Connor also brought balance to our highest court; most recently, as been repeated many times, when she cautioned about how war doesn't give a blank check. #Quote by Joe Biden
Highest quotes by Caroline Kennedy
#30. Sometimes it takes a while to recognize that someone has a special ability to get us to believe in ourselves, to tie that belief to our highest ideals, and to imagine that together we can do great things.
In those rare moments, when such a person comes along, we need to put aside our plans and reach for what we know is possible. #Quote by Caroline Kennedy
Highest quotes by Pete Carroll
#31. At the highest level in the NFL, the pass game is as complex as you can imagine. #Quote by Pete Carroll
Highest quotes by J.C. Cooper
#32. Next to the dragon, and connected with it, water is the most frequently used symbol in Taosim. It is the strength in apparent weakness, the fluidity of life, an also symbolic of the state of coolness of judgment, acceptance and passionlessness, as opposed to the heat of argument, the friction of opposition, and the emotion of desire. Water fertilizes, refreshes and purifies and it is symbolic of gentle persuasion in government of the state and the individual. It occupies the lowest position, yet is the most powerful of forces. The highest goodness in like water. #Quote by J.C. Cooper
Highest quotes by Grace Metalious
#33. The public loves to create a hero ... Sometimes I think they do it for the sheer joy of knocking him down from the highest peak. Like a child who builds a house of blocks and then destroys it with one vicious kick. #Quote by Grace Metalious
Highest quotes by Richard Stallman
#34. I don't have a problem with someone using their talents to become successful, I just don't think the highest calling is success. Things like freedom and the expansion of knowledge are beyond success, beyond the personal. Personal success is not wrong, but it is limited in importance, and once you have enough of it it is a shame to keep striving for that, instead of for truth, beauty, or justice. #Quote by Richard Stallman
Highest quotes by Jacob Nordby
#35. You know that crazy heart of yours? The one with lightning crackling and moonlight shining through it. The one you've been told not to trust because it often led you off the beaten path. The one so many have misunderstood your entire life. Trust it. Feed it. Grow it. It's your greatest treasure and will point the way to your highest destiny. It is the voice of your soul. #Quote by Jacob Nordby
Highest quotes by Robertson Davies
#36. Canada has one of the highest rates of insanity in any civilized country and one reason might be that life in many places is so desperately dull. #Quote by Robertson Davies
Highest quotes by Cari Beauchamp
#37. Adding to her frustration was the much more frequent attention being given to her gender. Throughout the twenties, Frances was hailed as "one of the most famous scenario writers" or "highest paid scenarist" and now The Big House was promoted in the Los Angeles Examiner under the headline "Woman Writes Film Plot of Penitentiary. #Quote by Cari Beauchamp
Highest quotes by Tom Roston
#38. And if you tell a good story, it feels is. A couple looked at this film and said it was the first time that they had ever felt that as they watched something, that they felt as if what they were watching was happening now rather than in the past. And that is the highest compliment someone could ever pay. They might say it was the greatest documentary ever, but it wouldn't be the same thing as it felt as if it was happening now. There was a familiarity. And that is what we wanted. We wanted to remove the distance between us. #Quote by Tom Roston
Highest quotes by James L. Barksdale
#39. The highest compliments leaders can receive are those that are given by the people who work for them. #Quote by James L. Barksdale
Highest quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#40. Living for God is the highest form of life. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Highest quotes by Richard Florida
#41. New Jersey boasts the highest percentage of passport holders (68%); Delaware (67%), Alaska (65%), Massachusetts (63%), New York (62%), and California (60%) are close behind. At the opposite end of the spectrum, less than one in five residents of Mississippi are passport holders, and just one in four residents of West Virginia, Kentucky, Alabama, and Arkansas. #Quote by Richard Florida
Highest quotes by Jane Austen
#42. I am no indiscriminate novel reader. The mere trash of the common circulating library I hold in the highest contempt. #Quote by Jane Austen
Highest quotes by Paul Ricoeur
#43. The moral law commands us to make the highest possible good in a world the final object of all our conduct. #Quote by Paul Ricoeur
Highest quotes by Patrick O'Brian
#44. Sure, it is weak and illiberal to speak slightingly of any considerable body of men; yet it so happens that the only judges I have known have been froward companions, and it occurs to me that not only are they subjected to the evil influence of authority but also to that of righteous indignation, which is even more deleterious. Those who judge and sentence criminals address them with an unbridled, vindictive righteousness that would be excessive in an archangel and that is indecent to the highest degree in one sinner speaking to another, and he defenceless. Righteous indignation every day, and publicly applauded! #Quote by Patrick O'Brian
Highest quotes by Kim Campbell
#45. Quebecers have rarely in their history been better represented than they are right now-at the highest levels of the federal government. #Quote by Kim Campbell
Highest quotes by David Viscott
#46. The highest love a person can have for you is to wish for you to evolve into the best person you can be. #Quote by David Viscott
Highest quotes by Georg Cantor
#47. The fear of infinity is a form of myopia that destroys the possibility of seeing the actual infinite, even though it in its highest form has created and sustains us, and in its secondary transfinite forms occurs all around us and even inhabits our minds. #Quote by Georg Cantor
Highest quotes by Wayne Dyer
#48. People need to learn how to respond to each other's hatreds with love - which is what Jesus taught us, which is what Buddha came here to teach us, which is what Muhammad taught us, which is what all of the great spiritual masters who have ever walked among us who live at those highest energies taught us - responding to force with more force will just create more problems. #Quote by Wayne Dyer
Highest quotes by Isabella Poretsis
#49. Starting something can be easy, it is finishing it that is the highest hurdle. #Quote by Isabella Poretsis
Highest quotes by Margaret Mead
#50. The city as a center where, any day in any year, there may be a fresh encounter with a new talent, a keen mind or a gifted specialist-this is essential to the life of a country. To play this role in our lives a city must have a soul-a university, a great art or music school, a cathedral or a great mosque or temple, a great laboratory or scientific center, as well as the libraries and museums and galleries that bring past and present together. A city must be a place where groups of women and men are seeking and developing the highest things they know. #Quote by Margaret Mead
Highest quotes by Jonathan Safran Foer
#51. Regarding US government recommendations that tend to encourage dairy consumption in the name of preventing osteoporosis, Nestle notes that in parts of the world where milk is not a staple of the diet, people often have less osteoporosis and fewer bone fractures than Americans do. The highest rates of osteoporosis are seen in countries where people consume the most dairy foods. #Quote by Jonathan Safran Foer
Highest quotes by Elizabeth Yates
#52. What right had she to oppose him? Yet it was he who had given her freedom. The word was meaningless unless in its light each one lived up to his highest and his best. #Quote by Elizabeth Yates
Highest quotes by Jaggi Vasudev
#53. If you live your life burning for the highest possibility, in that burning itself, there is liberation. #Quote by Jaggi Vasudev
Highest quotes by Osho
#54. nobody loves anything more than freedom. Even love is secondary to freedom; freedom is the highest value. Love can be sacrificed for freedom, but freedom cannot be sacrificed for love. #Quote by Osho
Highest quotes by David Hume
#55. In our reasonings concerning matter of fact, there are all imaginable degrees of assurance, from the highest certainty to the lowest species of moral evidence. A wise man, therefore, proportions his belief to the evidence. #Quote by David Hume
Highest quotes by John Ruskin
#56. Though nature is constantly beautiful, she does not exhibit her highest powers of beauty constantly, for then they would satiate us and pall upon our senses. It is necessary to their appreciation that they should be rarely shown. Her finest touches are things which must be watched for; her most perfect passages of beauty are the most evanescent. #Quote by John Ruskin
Highest quotes by Andrew Lutts
#57. I now follow my heart, and I lead with my heart. I now choose and express my highest self and highest good in my divine spirit work. #Quote by Andrew Lutts
Highest quotes by B.K.S. Iyengar
#58. Not all practitioners can jump to that highest level. They have to climb, step by step from the physical sphere to reach the spiritual sphere. If it is treated as exercise it is not the fault of yoga but of the practitioners. #Quote by B.K.S. Iyengar
Highest quotes by Ellen F. Davis
#59. That the Old Testament represents God chiefly as angry Judge and vicious Warrior is a false stereotype. While these images are not absent, they are more than balanced by striking portrayals of God as Lover or Husband, infatuated with Israel beyond all reason or deserving. God is not too proud to grieve terribly over Israel's unfaithfulness, nor to be giddy over her return home. ... [This covenant's] primary quality is love at the highest pitch of intensity. (pg. 77) #Quote by Ellen F. Davis
Highest quotes by Alexander Ostrovsky
#60. To pronounce something clever and honest is not such a big deal, lots of them have been said and written. For a statement of truth to be effective and for it to make people wiser, it has to be filtered through the soul of a highest quality, the soul of an artist. #Quote by Alexander Ostrovsky
Highest quotes by Ali Smith
#61. George watches a dog cross the square through the noise and stop to sniff at something then amble off again as if nothing unusual is happening, so maybe something like this just happens here every week. Then, above the heads of everyone in the city, above the highest-tossed of the flags, church bells here and there announce midnight and as if they've been enchanted the next team after that to do a routine does it without drums and bugles but with its musicians humming instead, in tuneful voices and with a gentleness that seems sweet and absurd after the great din of the teams that have gone before. If only all ceremonials and pomp got hummed like that, her mother says. #Quote by Ali Smith
Highest quotes by Talib Kweli
#62. Who you? Your name smaller than fine grains in couscous
It's the highest calibre, your calibre is deuce deuce #Quote by Talib Kweli
Highest quotes by John Lancaster Spalding
#63. The highest strength is acquired not in overcoming the world, but in overcoming one's self. Learn to be cruel to thyself, to withstand thy appetites, to bear thy sufferings, and thou shalt become free and able. #Quote by John Lancaster Spalding
Highest quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#64. In your lowest moments, reach for your highest thoughts. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Highest quotes by Edwin Hubbel Chapin
#65. The highest genius never flowers in satire, but culminates in sympathy with that which is best in human nature, and appeals to it. #Quote by Edwin Hubbel Chapin
Highest quotes by Mitt Romney
#66. When I place my hand on the Bible and take the oath of office, that oath becomes my highest promise to God. #Quote by Mitt Romney
Highest quotes by Harper Lee
#67. We're paying the highest tribute you can pay a man. We trust him to do right. It's that simple. #Quote by Harper Lee
Highest quotes by Joseph B.H. McMillan
#68. Life is a manifestation of the fundamental laws of physics, and in its highest form, life manifests the fundamental laws of physics as a human organism endowed with a capacity for moral judgement. #Quote by Joseph B.H. McMillan
Highest quotes by Nido R. Qubein
#69. You may have the loftiest goals, the highest ideals, the noblest dreams, but remember this nothing works unless you do. #Quote by Nido R. Qubein
Highest quotes by Carl Paladino
#70. We are angry about paying the highest income taxes and property taxes in the nation and getting less and less for it. We are angry about our incompetent, dysfunctional government that pays no attention to the desires of the people. We are angry about the cesspool of corruption and conflicts of interests and self-dealing that is Albany. #Quote by Carl Paladino
Highest quotes by Susan Sontag
#71. The highest vocation of photography is to explain man to man. #Quote by Susan Sontag
Highest quotes by Nikos Kazantzakis
#72. The highest point a man can attain is not Knowledge, or Virtue, or Goodness, or Victory, but something even greater, more heroic and more despairing: Sacred Awe! #Quote by Nikos Kazantzakis
Highest quotes by Joyce Carol Oates
#73. Art is the highest expression of the human spirit. #Quote by Joyce Carol Oates
Highest quotes by Amit Ray
#74. Divinity is recognizing that you're already successful, and you are on the way to achieve your highest potential. Divinity is keeping the objectives of the soul clear, beyond the guilt, shame and embarrassment of life. #Quote by Amit Ray
Highest quotes by Billy Graham
#75. Someone has said, Prayer is the highest use to which speech can be put. #Quote by Billy Graham
Highest quotes by Mark Twain
#76. All scenery in California requires distance to give it its highest charm. #Quote by Mark Twain
Highest quotes by Don Yaeger
#77. With a tennis racket strapped tightly to her hiking pack, Martina Navratilova began her ascent of Mount Kilimanjaro. The tennis legend had visions of celebrating at the summit of Africa's highest peak by hitting a couple balls to see how far they might fly in the thin air at 19,341 feet. #Quote by Don Yaeger
Highest quotes by Terry Riley
#78. Music can also be a sensual pleasure, like eating food or sex. But its highest vibration for me is that point of taking us to a real understanding of something in our nature which we can very rarely get at. It is a spiritual state of oneness. #Quote by Terry Riley
Highest quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#79. Every wild apple shrub excites our expectation thus, somewhat as every wild child. It is, perhaps, a prince in disguise. What a lesson to man! So are human beings, referred to the highest standard, the celestial fruit which they suggest and aspire to bear, browsed on by fate; and only the most persistent and strongest genius defends itself and prevails, sends a tender scion upward at last, and drops its perfect fruit on the ungrateful earth. Poets and philosophers and statesmen thus spring up in the country pastures, and outlast the hosts of unoriginal men. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Highest quotes by Israel Zangwill
#80. Artistic truth is for me literally the highest truth: art may seize the essence of persons and movements no less truly, and certainly far more vitally, than a scientific generalization unifies a chaos of phenomena. Time and Space are only the conditions through which spiritual facts struggle. Hence I have here and there permitted myself liberties with these categories. #Quote by Israel Zangwill
Highest quotes by Steven Kotler
#81. After three decades of research, Zimbardo found that the healthiest, happiest, highest performers blend the best of both worlds. The optimal time perspective combines the energy, joy, and openness of Presents, with the strength, fortitude, and long-term vision of the Futures. #Quote by Steven Kotler
Highest quotes by Dinatarini Devi

Highest quotes by Samuel Johnson
#83. The duties of religion, sincerely and regularly performed, will always be sufficient to exalt the meanest and to exercise the highest understanding. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Highest quotes by Greg Proops
#84. In our world, all puns are beautiful and they are the highest form of comedy. #Quote by Greg Proops
Highest quotes by Aubrey Moore
#85. This caterpillar does not just simply grow wings
First, it must alter its mind; transform the very being of itself
It must climb the tallest tree, the highest mountain
Swim the deepest of oceans
Walk through the fiercest of flames
And then, if it chooses, this caterpillar can become a butterfly #Quote by Aubrey Moore
Highest quotes by Laurence Sterne
#86. All womankind, from the highest to the lowest love jokes; the difficulty is to know how they choose to have them cut; and there is no knowing that, but by trying, as we do with our artillery in the field, by raising or letting down their breeches, till we hit the mark. #Quote by Laurence Sterne
Highest quotes by Billy Graham
#87. To know the will of God is the highest of all wisdom. Living in the center of God's will rules out all falseness of religion and puts the stamp of true sincerity upon our service to God. #Quote by Billy Graham
Highest quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#88. The silence that accepts merit as the most natural thing in the world is the highest applause. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Highest quotes by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
#89. Since the beginning of time, love has been the source of both the highest bliss and the heaviest burdens. At the heart of misery from the days of Adam until today, you will find the love of wrong things. And at the heart of joy, you will find the love of good things.And the greatest of all good things is God. #Quote by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
Highest quotes by Deepak Chopra
#90. If you approach a difficult problem without struggle, your ego will at first try to take charge from years of habit. Do the minimum and stand back. Solutions incubate at a deep level, not at the speed demanded by your mind. Take a break and come back the next day. Allow the answers to arise from your center, even if it takes a while. However much you have to retrain yourself in this practice of Least Effort, the ability to come from your center is worth the highest price anyone could pay. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Highest quotes by Kristian Williams
#91. A total of 105 patrol officers died on the job in 2012. Less half of those (51) died as the result of violence, and another 48 died in traffic accidents. Between 1961 and 2012, 3,847 cops were murdered and 2,946 died in accidents - averaging about 75 murders and 58 fatal accidents in a typical year. Naturally it is not to be lost sight of that these numbers represent human lives, not widgets or sacks of potatoes. But let's also remember that there were 4,383 fatal work injuries in 2012. As dangerous professions go, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, policing is not even in the top ten. In terms of total fatalities, more truck drivers are killed than any other kind of worker (741 in 2012). A better measure of occupational risk, however, is the rate of work-related deaths per 100,000 workers. In 2012, for example, it was 17.4 for truck drivers. At 15.0 deaths per 100,000, policing is slightly less dangerous than being a maintenance worker (15.7) and slightly more dangerous than supervising the gardener (14.7). The highest rate of fatalities is among loggers at 127.8 per 100,000, just ahead of fishers at 117.0. The rate for all occupations, taken together, is 3.2 per 100,000 workers. Where are the headlines, the memorials, the honor guards, and the sorrowful renderings of Taps for these workers? Where are the mayoral speeches, the newspaper editorials, the sober reflections that these brave men and women died, and that others risk their lives daily, so that we might co #Quote by Kristian Williams
Highest quotes by Ezra Klein
#92. Obamas finest speeches do not excite. They do not inform. They dont even really inspire. They elevate ... He is not the Word made flesh, but the triumph of word over flesh ... Obama is, at his best, able to call us back to our highest selves. #Quote by Ezra Klein
Highest quotes by Hope Bradford
#93. Death is like giving birth. Birth can be painful. Sometimes women die from giving birth. However, when the baby is born, all that pain (that was endured) vanishes in an instant. Love for that tiny baby makes one forget the pain, the fear. And as I've said before, love between mother and child is the highest experience, the closest to divine love.
You might wonder about the parallel I'm making between birth and death. But I say to you, the fear and pain accompanying an awful death is over quickly. Beyond that portal one is suddenly in the light, in oneness and bliss ... Just as a woman heals rapidly after childbirth and then is able to fall in love with her baby, those who pass over also are able to fall in love with a new life."-Kuan Yin (From "Oracle of Compassion: the Living Word of Kuan Yin #Quote by Hope Bradford
Highest quotes by Allan Watts
#94. Just as the highest and the lowest notes are equally inaudible, so perhaps, is the greatest sense and the greatest nonsense equally unintelligible. #Quote by Allan Watts
Highest quotes by Sarah Rees Brennan
#95. Bros before hoes," said Jared. "By which of course I mean gardening tools, because I hold all the fine ladies of Sorry-in-the-Vale in the highest regard. #Quote by Sarah Rees Brennan
Highest quotes by Plutarch
#96. Rome was in the most dangerous inclination to change on account of the unequal distribution of wealth and property, those of highest rank and greatest spirit having impoverished themselves by shows, entertainments, ambition of offices, and sumptuous buildings, and the riches of the city having thus fallen into the hands of mean and low-born persons. So that there wanted but a slight impetus to set all in motion, it being in the power of every daring man to overturn a sickly commonwealth. #Quote by Plutarch
Highest quotes by Anonymous
#97. Disney's Bob Iger, #60 on our list, is the highest paid among our 100, with a total package of $34.3 million. #Quote by Anonymous
Highest quotes by Kendrick Meek
#98. Port Security is one of our weakest security links, and it must be one of our highest priorities. #Quote by Kendrick Meek
Highest quotes by Giordano Bruno
#99. There is a descent from God through the world to animals, and an ascent from animals through the world to God. He is the highest point of the scale, pure act and active power, the purest light. #Quote by Giordano Bruno
Highest quotes by Heinrich Himmler
#100. You men of the einsatzgruppen are called upon to fulfill a repulsive duty. But you are soldiers who have to carry out every order unconditionally. You have a responsibility before God and Hitler for everything that is happening. I myself hate this bloody business and I have been moved to the depths of my soul. But I am obeying the highest law by doing my duty. Man must defend himself against bedbugs and rats, against vermin. #Quote by Heinrich Himmler
Highest quotes by Thomas Carlyle
#101. The highest ensign that men ever met and embraced under, the Cross itself, had no meaning save an accidental extrinsic one. #Quote by Thomas Carlyle
Highest quotes by Nathaniel Branden
#102. Your life is important. Whether you achieve what you want in life matters. Whether you are happy matters. Honor and fight for your highest potential. Self-realizatio n-the realization of the best within you-is the noblest goal of your existence. #Quote by Nathaniel Branden
Highest quotes by Robin Hobb
#103. Why can't people love one another and still remain free?" Althea demanded suddenly.
Amber paused to rub her eyes, then tug thoughtfully at her earring. "One can love that way," she conceded regretfully. "But the price on that kind of love may be the highest of all." She strung her words together as carefully as she strung her beads. "To love another person like that, you have to admit that his life is as important as yours. Harder still, you have to admit to yourself that perhaps he has needs you cannot fill, and that you have tasks that will take you far away from him. It costs loneliness and longing and doubt and ... #Quote by Robin Hobb

Highest quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#105. Man only remains hypnotised with the false idea of an ego. When this ghost is off from us, all dreams vanish, and then it is found that the one Self only exists from the highest Being to a blade of grass. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Highest quotes by George Eliot
#106. We are most of us brought up in the notion that the highest motive for not doing a wrong is something irrespective of the beings who would suffer the wrong. #Quote by George Eliot
Highest quotes by Andrew Lloyd Webber
#107. Here's the truth. The proposed top rate of income tax is not 50 per cent. It is 50 per cent plus 1.5 per cent national insurance paid by employees plus 13.3 per cent paid by employers. That's not 50 per cent. Two years from now, Britain will have the highest tax rate on earned income of any developed country. #Quote by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Highest quotes by Virginia Woolf
#108. To evade such temptations is the first duty of the poet. For as the ear is the antechamber to the soul, poetry can adulterate and destroy more surely then lust or gunpowder. The poet's, then, is the highest office of all. His words reach where others fall short. A silly song of Shakespeare's has done more for the poor and the wicked than all the preachers and philanthropists in the world. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Highest quotes by Meister Eckhart
#109. St Augustine says: 'The true servant of God does not desire to be told or to be given what they would like to hear or see, for their prime and highest wish is to hear what is most pleasing to God.'3 #Quote by Meister Eckhart
Highest quotes by Brigham Young
#110. To be damned is to be banished from, or be deprived of living in the presence of the Father and the Son. Who will live with him? They [who] will come up and inherit the highest glory that is prepared for the faithful. #Quote by Brigham Young
Highest quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#111. Can we think about love ? When you love, is thought functioning ? Love and thought are not in opposition; do not let us divide them as opposites. When one loves, is there a sense of seperateness, of bringing people together, or disbanding them, pushing them away ? Surely that state of love can be experienced only when the process of thought is not functioning - which does not mean that one must become crazy, unbalanced. On the contrary. It requires the highest form of thought to go beyond. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Highest quotes by Amit Ray
#112. Friendliness, aliveness and warmheartedness are the marks of true spirituality. These gives deeper and closer connection to our highest divine potential. #Quote by Amit Ray
Highest quotes by Robert E. Slavin
#113. The principal reason that districts within states often differ markedly in per-pupil expenditures is that school funding is almost always tied to property taxes, which are in turn a direct function of local wealth. Having school funding depend on local wealth creates a situation in which poor districts must tax themselves far more heavily than wealthy ones, yet still may not be able to generate adequate income. For example, Baltimore City is one of the poorest jurisdictions in Maryland, and the Baltimore City Public Schools have the lowest per-pupil instructional expenses of any of Maryland's 24 districts. Yet Baltimore's property tax rate is twice that of the next highest jurisdiction.(FN2) Before the funding equity decision in New Jersey, the impoverished East Orange district had one of the highest tax rates in the state, but spent only $3,000 per pupil, one of the lowest per-pupil expenditures in the state.(FN3) A similar story could be told in almost any state in the U.S.(FN4) Funding formulas work systematically against children who happen to be located in high-poverty districts, but also reflect idiosyncratic local circumstances. For example, a factory closing can bankrupt a small school district. What sense does it make for children's education to suffer based on local accidents of geography or economics?
To my knowledge, the U.S. is the only nation to fund elementary and secondary education based on local wealth. Other developed countries either equalize funding #Quote by Robert E. Slavin
Highest quotes by Henry Kissinger

Highest quotes by Lynn Grabhorn
#115. The vibration of appreciation is also the highest, fastest vibration we can use for attraction. If we would shoot appreciation at anything and everything, all day long, we'd be guaranteed to have heaven on earth in no time, living happily ever after with more friends, more money, more beautiful relationships, in total safety, and closer to the God of our Being than it's possible to fathom. #Quote by Lynn Grabhorn

Highest quotes by Jack Canfield
#119. I have written a new book called 'The Golden Motorcycle Gang.' The premise of the book is taken from actual events in my life. My life has been dedicated to inspiring and motivating others to live their highest vision of their ideal life and offering transformational trainings that help people succeed in all aspects of their lives. #Quote by Jack Canfield
Highest quotes by Albert Einstein
#120. Condemnation before investigation, is the highest form of ignorance. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Highest quotes by H.G.Wells
#121. The Islamic teachings have left great traditions for equitable and gentle dealings and behavior, and inspire people with nobility and tolerance. These are human teachings of the highest order and at the same time practicable. These teachings brought into existence a society in which hard-heartedness and collective oppression and injustice were the least as compared with all other societies preceding it ... Islam is replete with gentleness, courtesy, and fraternity. #Quote by H.G.Wells
Highest quotes by Ayn Rand
#122. Man cannot survive except through his mind. He comes on earth unarmed. His brain is his only weapon. Animals obtain food by force. man had no claws, no fangs, no horns, no great strength of muscle. He must plant his food or hunt it. To plant, he needs a process of thought. To hunt, he needs weapons,and to make weapons - a process of thought. From this simplest necessity to the highest religious abstraction, from the wheel to the skyscraper, everything we are and we have comes from a single attribute of man -the function of his reasoning mind. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Highest quotes by Ike Skelton
#123. The number of attacks on the American and allied forces is at the highest level since the insurgency began despite the increase of America combat operations and the introduction of some 40 new Iraq security forces and battalions. #Quote by Ike Skelton

Highest quotes by Gozo Shioda
#126. Today's aikido is so dimensionless. It's hollow, empty on the inside. People try to reach the highest levels without even paying their dues. That's why it seems so much like a dance these days. You have to master the very basics solidly, with your body, and then proceed to develop to the higher levels ... Now we see nothing but copying or imitation without any grasp of the real thing ... #Quote by Gozo Shioda
Highest quotes by Charles Caleb Colton
#127. Courage is generosity of the highest order, for the brave are prodigal of the most precious things. #Quote by Charles Caleb Colton
Highest quotes by William Lloyd Garrison
#128. Little boldness is needed to assail the opinions and practices of notoriously wicked men; but to rebuke great and good men for their conduct, and to impeach their discernment, is the highest effort of moral courage. #Quote by William Lloyd Garrison
Highest quotes by Cullen Hightower
#129. Of all creatures on earth, we humans have the highest level of stupidity. #Quote by Cullen Hightower
Highest quotes by Annie Besant
#130. The highest Hindu intellectual training was based on the practice of yoga, and produced, as its fruit, those marvellous philosophical systems, the six Darshanas and the Brahma Sutras, which are still the delight of scholars and the inspiration of occultists and mystics. #Quote by Annie Besant
Highest quotes by John Eberly
#131. For Ibn 'Arabi, whose most beloved teacher Abu Madyan was identified as being the stone, the continual revelation of God's word is a living, breathing creation. Those highest saints, who are known as the malamatiyya, the blameworthy of this world, the 'hidden' or kafirun of God are the embodiment of all the systems of concealment and disclosure, jafr, ta'wil, taqqiyah, et al. The Qur'an is not just a book, it is a person. The texts of al-Kimia are not simple words which when put together produce magical formulas, they are alive. #Quote by John Eberly
Highest quotes by Rachel Maddow
#132. The highest percentage of respondents say that biggest problem in the country is the government. The biggest problem facing our country today is that our government is terrible. Dissatisfaction with the government, problem numero uno by a mile. #Quote by Rachel Maddow
Highest quotes by Adolf Hitler
#133. You see, it's been our misfortune to have the wrong religion. Why didn't we have the religion of the Japanese, who regard sacrifice for the Fatherland as the highest good? The Mohammedan religion [Islam] too would have been more compatible to us than Christianity. Why did it have to be Christianity with its meekness and flabbiness? #Quote by Adolf Hitler
Highest quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#134. Affirmation of life even in its strangest and sternest problems; the will to life rejoicing in its own inexhaustibility through the sacrifice of its highest types - that is what I call dionysian #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Highest quotes by Robert Muller

Highest quotes by Jean Shinoda Bolen
#136. Bliss and joy come in moments of living our highest truth
moments when what we do is consistent with our archetypal depths. It's when we are most authentic and trusting, and feel that whatever we are doing, which can be quite ordinary, is nonetheless sacred. #Quote by Jean Shinoda Bolen
Highest quotes by August Tholuck
#137. The grave is a very small hillock, but we can see farther from it, when standing on it, than from the highest mountain in all the world. #Quote by August Tholuck
Highest quotes by Derek Hough
#138. Lies always hurt.

Shirley made it clear to me that she would accept nothing but 100 percent honesty in our relationship. That slap across the face was an eye-opener. It made me feel that I didn't need to sneak around behind her back. It gave me the freedom for the first time in my life to let go of my secrets. It's a lesson that I continue to learn--if you lie, no matter how good your intentions, you carry the lie with you. It weighs you down, it holds you back, and you start to lose respect for yourself.
The biggest lies of all are those we tell ourselves. Every time you say, "I can't do that," "I don't have what it takes," "It's too late," or "I'm not good enough," you're keeping yourself from living your truth. This is always a tough one for me, and something I continually have to work on. Why do we lie to ourselves? Because a lie feels easy and comfortable. It keeps fear and pain away; it shields you from the unknown. But you deserve more. You deserve not to settle, not to be distracted, and not to deny yourself your highest potential. As the saying goes, "The truth shall set you free." Be honest about what you want, what you need, and what you're capable of. Tune out the negative voices in your head that hold you back. Change your mind, change yourself. #Quote by Derek Hough
Highest quotes by Robert Green Ingersoll
#139. All should be taught that the highest ambition is to be happy, and to add to the well-being of others; that place and power are not necessary to success; that the desire to acquire great wealth is a kind of insanity. They should be taught that it is a waste of energy, a waste of thought, a waste of life, to acquire what you do not need and what you do not really use for the benefit of yourself or others. #Quote by Robert Green Ingersoll
Highest quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#140. Profits are the driving force of the market economy. The greater the profits, the better the needs of the consumers are supplied ... He who serves the public best, makes the highest profits. #Quote by Ludwig Von Mises
Highest quotes by Abraham Maslow
#141. Classic economic theory, based as it is on an inadequate theory of human motivation, could be revolutionized by accepting the reality of higher human needs, including the impulse to self actualization and the love for the highest values. #Quote by Abraham Maslow
Highest quotes by Mia Hamm
#142. I got to experience soccer at the highest level at a young age; I decided I wanted to be part of that for as long as possible. #Quote by Mia Hamm
Highest quotes by David Estes
#143. Sometimes, girls, you have to hit your lowest low just before you hit your highest high. It makes you appreciate the good things so much more. #Quote by David Estes
Highest quotes by Zach Kleiman
#144. Once one recognizes the value of having difficult obstacles to overcome, it is a simple matter to see the true benefit that can be gained from competitive sports. In tennis who is it that provides a person with the obstacles he needs in order to experience his highest limits? His opponent, of course! Then is your opponent a friend or an enemy? He is a friend to the extent that he does his best to make things difficult for you. Only by playing the role of your enemy does he become your true friend. Only by competing with you does he in fact cooperate! No one wants to stand around on the court waiting for the big wave. In this use of competition it is the duty of your opponent to create the greatest possible difficulties for you, just as it is yours to try to create obstacles for him. Only by doing this do you give each other the opportunity to find out to what heights each can rise. #Quote by Zach Kleiman
Highest quotes by David Hume
#145. Eloquence, when at its highest pitch, leaves little room for reason or reflection; but addressing itself entirely to the fancy or the affections, captivates the willing hearers, and subdues their understanding. Happily, this pitch it seldom attains. But what a Tully or a Demosthenes could scarcely effect over a Roman or Athenian audience, every Capuchin, every itinerant or stationary teacher can perform over the generality of mankind, and in a higher degree, by touching such gross and vulgar passions. #Quote by David Hume
Highest quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#146. You highest men whom I have ever seen! This is my suspicion about you and my secret laughter: I guess that you would call my superman

Highest quotes by Richard Dawkins
#147. It has been convincingly demonstrated that countries where there are high rates of poverty, or high rates of economic inequality, are the countries with the highest rates of religious beliefs. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Highest quotes by Albert Einstein
#148. The aim (of education) must be the training of independently acting and thinking individuals who, however, see in the service to the community their highest life problem. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Highest quotes by Jennifer Vandever
#149. And the horrible thing was: what if they were right? What if she lived her whole life and never really knew what love was? What if it was deeper than she ever imagined? What if she died without ever knowing what she missed? How would she know to even miss it? Love--deep, profound, soul-stirring love--happened on this planet, in this life. And she missed it.

On the other hand, her mother had a point: babies were awful. They were selfish, greedy, expensive and ultimately resentful of what they later would decide you had withheld from them. You were, in effect, creating someone uniquely fine-tuned to discern your slightest faults and broadcast them from the highest point. #Quote by Jennifer Vandever
Highest quotes by Albert Einstein
#150. Play is the highest from of research. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Highest quotes by Hildegard Of Bingen

Highest quotes by Thomas B. Macaulay
#152. This is the highest miracle of genius, that things which are not should be as though they were, that the imaginations of one mind should become the personal recollections of another. #Quote by Thomas B. Macaulay
Highest quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#153. In the entr'acte Levin and Pestsov fell into an argument upon the merits and defects of music of the Wagner school. Levin maintained that the mistake of Wagner and all his followers lay in their trying to take music into the sphere of another art, just as poetry goes wrong when it tries to paint a face as the art of painting ought to do, and as an instance of this mistake he cited the sculptor who carved in marble certain poetic phantasms flitting round the figure of the poet on the pedestal. "These phantoms were so far from being phantoms that they were positively clinging on the ladder," said Levin. [ ... ] Pestsov maintained that art is one, and that it can attain its highest manifestations only by conjunction with all kinds of art. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Highest quotes by John Milton
#154. The end then of learning is to repair the ruins of our first parents by regaining to know God aright, and out of that knowledge to love him, to imitate him, to be like him, as we may the nearest by possessing our souls of true virtue, which being united to the heavenly grace of faith makes up the highest perfection. #Quote by John Milton
Highest quotes by Steven Erikson
#155. Write the following: "Private missive, from Lieutenant Master-Sergeant Field Quartermaster Pores, to Fist Kindly. Warmest salutations and congratulations on your promotion, sir. As one might observe from your advancement and, indeed, mine, cream doth rise, etc. In as much as I am ever delighted in corresponding with you, discussing all maner of subjects in all possible idioms, alas, this subject is rather more official in nature. In short, we are faced with a crisis of the highest order. Accordignly, I humbly seek your advice and would suggest we arrange a most private meeting at the earliest convenience. Yours affectionately, Pores." Got that, Himble?'
'Yes sir'
'Please read it back to me.'

Highest quotes by Herbert Spencer
#157. Courage is worthy of respect when displayed in the maintenance of legitimate claims and in the repelling of aggressions, bodily or other. Courage is worthy of yet higher respect when danger is faced in defence of claims common to self and others, as in resistance to invasion. Courage is worthy of the highest respect when risk to life or limb is dared in defence of others. #Quote by Herbert Spencer
Highest quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#158. When one speaks of humanity, the idea is fundamental that this is something which separates and distinguishes man from nature. In reality, however, there is no such separation: "natural" qualities and those called truly "human" are inseparably grown together. Man, in his highest and noblest capacities, is wholly nature and embodies its uncanny dual character. Those of his abilities which are terrifying and considered inhuman may even be the fertile soil out of which alone all humanity can grow in impulse, deed, and work. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Highest quotes by Knut Hamsun
#159. I am not anyone to speak aloud of Adolf Hitler. His life and his actions do not invite sentimental emotions, because he was a warrior fighting for humanity, an apostle of the Gospel of the Rights of all peoples. He was a reformer of the highest rank. His historic destiny was to act in a time of unprecedented brutality, to which he eventually fell victim. So must any West European see Adolf Hitler. We, his followers, however, bow our heads before his disappearance. #Quote by Knut Hamsun
Highest quotes by Jack Weatherford
#160. The traditional Chinese kingdoms operated under centuries of constraints on commerce. The building of walls on their borders had been a way of limiting such trade and literally keeping the wealth of the nation intact and inside the walls. For such administrators, giving up trade goods was the same as paying tribute to their neighbors, and they sought to avoid it as much as they could. The Mongols directly attacked the Chinese cultural prejudice that ranked merchants as merely a step above robbers by officially elevating their status ahead of all religions and professions, second only to government officials. In a further degradation of Confucian scholars, the Mongols reduced them from the highest level of traditional Chinese society to the ninth level, just below prostitutes but above beggars. #Quote by Jack Weatherford
Highest quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
#161. I hold this to be the highest task of a bond between two people: that each should stand guard over the solitude of the other. #Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke
Highest quotes by Melanie
#162. Stop judging life! Look at every event as blessed. It is offering you the fastest track to get onto your highest, happiest and most successful state. Your soul is working it all out perfectly. When you accept this you will make life amendments easily and lovingly. Then the pain stops and the joyous creation begins. #Quote by Melanie
Highest quotes by Bill Maher
#163. People have romantic notions about television. In the highest realms they think it's some sort of art medium, and it's not. Others think it's an entertainment medium, it's not that either. It's an advertising medium. It's a method to deliver advertising like a cigarette is a method to deliver nicotine. #Quote by Bill Maher

Highest quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#170. BELOVED fellow-servants of Christ, our work requires us to be in the best possible condition of heart. When we are at our best, we are feeble enough; we would not, therefore, fall below our highest point. As instruments, we owe all our power for usefulness to the Divine hand; but, since tools should always be kept in order, we would have our spirit free from rust, and our mind sharp of point and keen of edge to answer at once to the Master's will. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Highest quotes by Timothy Keller
#173. Just because you cannot realize your highest aspirations in work does not mean you have chosen wrongly, or are not called to your profession, or that you should spend your life looking for the perfect career that is devoid of frustration ... You should expect to be regularly frustrated in your work even though you may be in exactly the right vocation. #Quote by Timothy Keller

America fell for the gimmick candidate, disregarding every fact and warning sign in the rush to have 'the first African-American president.' #Quote by Allen West

Highest quotes by Sebastian Gorka
#178. You cannot win a war if you cannot talk honestly about the enemy Since the 9/11 attacks, political correctness and ideological prejudice - under both Republican and Democratic presidents - have distorted our analysis of the enemy, preventing us from drawing an effective plan to defeat the likes of Al Qaeda and the Islamic State. The Obama administration, blinded by its own preconceived ideas of why terrorism occurs, is influenced by malevolent actors who have an interest in censoring any talk of the religious aspects of the enemy's ideology. At the highest level of the U.S. government, terrorism is deemed to be the result of poverty, unemployment, and lack of political enfranchisement. This fallacy must be jettisoned. We are not at war with Islam. The people most immanently in danger, in fact, are the nonviolent and non-extremist Muslims of the Middle East, such as our allies in Jordan and the modern Muslims of Egypt and the United Arab Emirates. They are on the most important front of this war, and they understand just how much religion truly matters. We do a great disservice to those brave Muslims when we try to convince the world that the threat will disappear if enough people have good jobs and sound educations. #Quote by Sebastian Gorka
Highest quotes by Ovid
#179. Enhance and intensify one's vision of that synthesis of truth and beauty which is the highest and deepest reality. #Quote by Ovid
Highest quotes by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
#180. The ignorant man is not free, because what confronts him is an alien world, something outside him and in the offing, on which he depends, without his having made this foreign world for himself and therefore without being at home in it by himself as in something his own. The impulse of curiosity, the pressure for knowledge, from the lowest level up to the highest rung of philosophical insight arises only from the struggle to cancel this situation of unfreedom and to make the world one's own in one's ideas and thought. #Quote by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
Highest quotes by John Calvin
#181. This is the highest honour of the Church, that, until He is united to us, the Son of God reckons himself in some measure imperfect. What consolation is it for us to learn, that, not until we are along with him, does he possess all his parts, or wish to be regarded as complete! Hence, in the First Epistle to the Corinthians, when the apostle discusses largely the metaphor of a human body, he includes under the single name of Christ the whole Church. #Quote by John Calvin
Highest quotes by Dick Thornburgh
#182. As the highest ranking American official in the United Nations organization, I came to understand thoroughly that the national constitutional processes of the member states define the status of territories under their sovereignty. #Quote by Dick Thornburgh
Highest quotes by Laozi
#183. The best soldiers are not warlike; the best fighters do not lose their temper. The greatest conquerors are those who overcome their enemies without strife. The greatest directors of men are those who yield place to others. This is called the Virtue of not striving, the capacity for directing mankind; this is being the compeer of Heaven. It was the highest goal of the ancients. #Quote by Laozi
Highest quotes by Katherine Mansfield
#184. I sometimes wonder whether the act of surrender is not one of the greatest of all - the highest. It is one of the [most] difficult of all ... You see it's so immensely complicated. It needs real humility and at the same time, an absolute belief in one's own essential freedom. It is an act of faith. At the last moments, like all great acts, it is pure risk. This is true for me as a human being and as a writer. Dear Heaven, how hard it is to let go - to step into the blue. And yet one's creative life depends on it and one desires to do nothing else. #Quote by Katherine Mansfield
Highest quotes by Ashley Jeffery
#185. How do you weigh a soul?
Is it heavy with love or hate?
Does it deny the things it's done?
Does it even remember its own name?
Does it miss those it has loved?
Does it long for the life it's lost?
How do you weigh a soul?
After it has paid the highest cost,
Does it lose the will to live?
Without a physical shell
Does it sense without hands
That can touch and truly feel
Does it need sustenance to last?
A cold drink or warm meal
How do you weigh a soul?
Are souls even real? #Quote by Ashley Jeffery
Highest quotes by Charles Caleb Colton
#186. In all societies, it is advisable to associate if possible with the highest; not that the highest are always the best, but because, if disgusted there, we can descend at any time; but if we begin with the lowest, to ascend is impossible. #Quote by Charles Caleb Colton
Highest quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#187. Nonetheless, many people, and especially intellectuals, passionately loathe capitalism. As they see it, this ghastly mode of society's economic organization has brought about nothing but mischief and misery. Men were once happy and prosperous in the good old days preceding the Industrial Revolution. Now under capitalism the immense majority are starving paupers ruthlessly exploited by rugged individualists. For these scoundrels nothing counts but their moneyed interests. They do not produce good and really useful things, but only what will yield the highest profits. They poison bodies with alcoholic beverages and tobacco, and souls and minds with tabloids, lascivious books and silly moving pictures. The "ideological superstructure" of capitalism is a literature of decay and degradation, the burlesque show and the art of striptease, the Hollywood pictures and the detective stories. #Quote by Ludwig Von Mises
Highest quotes by Neil Gaiman
#188. Sometimes I suspect that we build our traps ourselves, then we back into them, pretending amazement the while. That is the way of life, from the All-Highest down to the meanest creature in creation ... But whether this is the case or no, it is still a worthy thing to open cages. It is still a virtuous act to free the imprisoned. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Highest quotes by Matt Bomer

#190. I inquired what wickedness is, and I didn't find a substance, but a perversity of will twisted away from the highest substance – You oh God – towards inferior things, rejecting its own inner life and swelling with external matter. #Quote by Augustine Of Hippo
Highest quotes by Ingmar Bergman
#191. Minus: Papa, I'm scared. When I was hugging Karin in the boat, reality burst open. Do you understand?

David: I do.

Minus: Reality burst open, and I tumbled out. It's like a dream. Anything can happen. Anything.

David: I know.

Minus: I can't live in this new world.

David: Yes, you can. But you must have something to hold on to.

Minus: What would that be? A god? Give me proof of God. You can't.

David: Yes, I can. But you have to listen carefully.

Minus: Yes, I need to listen.

David: I can only give you a hint of my own hope. It is to know that love exists as something real in the human world.

Minus: A special kind of love, I suppose?

David: All kinds, Minus. The highest and the lowest, the most absurd and the most sublime. All kinds of love.

Minus: And the longing for love?

David: Longing and denial. Trust and distrust.

Minus: Then love is the proof?

David: I don't know if love is proof of God's existence, or if love is God himself.

Minus: To you, love and God are the same thing.

David: That thought helps me in my emptiness and despair.

Minus: Tell me more, Papa.

David: Suddenly the emptiness turns into abundance, and despair into life. It's like a reprieve, Minus, from a death sentence.

Minus: Papa... If it is as you say, then Karin is surrounded by God, since #Quote by Ingmar Bergman

#192. Love can take you from any depth and place you on the highest mountain. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Highest quotes by C.Z. Hazard
#193. Human Millipede 6 was the highest-grossing movie of the summer and returned Nicholas Cage to Oscar-winning status. #Quote by C.Z. Hazard
Highest quotes by Elizabeth Gaskell
#194. The world is not everything Ruth. Nor is the want of men's good opinion and esteem the highest need which man has. Teach Leonard this. You would not wish his life to be one summer's day. You dared not make it so, if you had the power. Teach him to bid a noble, Christian welcome to the trials which God sends - and this is one of them. Teach him not to look on a life of struggle, and perhaps of disappointment and incompleteness, as a sad and mournful end, but as the means permitted to the heroes and warriors in the army of Christ, by which to show their faithful following. Tell him of the hard and thorny path which was trodden once by the bleeding feet of One. Think of the Saviour's life and cruel death, and of His divine faithfulness ... We have all been cowards hitherto. God help us to be so no longer! #Quote by Elizabeth Gaskell
Highest quotes by Charles Babbage
#195. That a country, [England], eminently distinguished for its mechanical and manufacturing ingenuity, should be indifferent to the progress of inquiries which form the highest departments of that knowledge on whose more elementary truths its wealth and rank depend, is a fact which is well deserving the attention of those who shall inquire into the causes that influence the progress of nations. #Quote by Charles Babbage
Highest quotes by John Taylor Gatto
#196. It's been a horrifying academic secret for decades that the children who walk away with the highest formal honors, the valedictorians and National Merit Scholars, have a horrendous performance record in later life. #Quote by John Taylor Gatto
Highest quotes by Angie Karan
#197. Every living thing and every situation, is in divine order! Believe, and have faith that everything is where it is at, and should be! Everything happens for our highest good! #Quote by Angie Karan
Highest quotes by Sun Tzu
#198. It is only the enlightened ruler and the wise general who will use the highest intelligence of the army for the purposes of spying, and thereby they achieve great results. #Quote by Sun Tzu
Highest quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#199. I desire to establish a profound state of peacefulness, an imperturbable stillness of mind, an unconditioned mode of being that is free from mind contaminants of negative thoughts. I pray to undertake a productive emotional, intellectual, and spiritual journey seeking the highest level of personal realization that defines wholeness and finality. In stillness, a state of mental quietude, we enter the worldly womb of creativity. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Highest quotes by Bertrand Russell
#200. When it was first proposed to establish laboratories at Cambridge, Todhunter, the mathematician, objected that it was unnecessary for students to see experiments performed, since the results could be vouched for by their teachers, all of them of the highest character, and many of them clergymen of the Church of England. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
