Historical Sites quotes by Jerry Stahl
#1. In some odd gush of patriotism, my mother had once vomited on the Liberty Bell, the Statue of Liberty, and a bust of Benjamin Franklin in a single summer, aborting our vacation and causing my father to swear off historical sites until the day he died. #Quote by Jerry Stahl
Historical Sites quotes by Nathan Lopes Cardozo
#2. We seldom stop to think - and we certainly should do so more often - that in taking the words of our sages as a description of mere fact, we may miss the deeper meanings which they meant to convey. As a rule, aggadah should not be taken literally; rather, it must be interpreted with the understanding that a higher truth is being alluded to - a truth that is beyond historical perspective, philological expression, or the dimensions of scientific observations. Agaddah speaks to that part of us that understands but cannot articulate what it understands. It allows us to go beyond the realms of the definable, perceivable, and demonstrable. In this sense, aggadah is a form of religious metaphor, a mirror that enables us to form mental images of the indescribable. #Quote by Nathan Lopes Cardozo
Historical Sites quotes by Marguerite Kaye
#3. There is nothing more effective in igniting a man's desire than a woman's passion. To see the fire in your eyes, to feel the fire in your blood as you touch me, it sets me on fire too. Do you imagine I would prefer to kiss a woman who responds only with -- with compliance? No, I would not. No red-blooded man would. Never apologize for passion. Restraint, Julia, has no place in lovemaking. #Quote by Marguerite Kaye
Historical Sites quotes by Bradley Steffens
#4. It's true. I doubt. I doubt because I seek the truth. Doubt has served me well. #Quote by Bradley Steffens
Historical Sites quotes by Peter Ackroyd
#5. The 16th-century theatre witnessed the particularly English manifestation of 'the history play.' There can be no doubt that Shakespeare's presentations of 'Henry V' and 'Richard III' have been incalculably more influential than any more sober historical study. #Quote by Peter Ackroyd
Historical Sites quotes by Malcolm Gladwell
#6. Success is not a function of individual talent. It's the steady accumulation of advantages. It's bound up in so many other broader circumstantial, environmental, historical, and cultural factors. #Quote by Malcolm Gladwell
Historical Sites quotes by Vladimir Putin
#7. Russia is an ancient country with historical, profound traditions and a very powerful moral foundation. And this foundation is a love for the Motherland and patriotism. Patriotism in the best sense of that word. Incidentally, I think that to a certain extent, to a significant extent, this is also attributable to the American people. #Quote by Vladimir Putin
Historical Sites quotes by Robert Gerwarth
#8. Heydrich's life therefore offers a uniquely privileged, intimate and organic perspective on some of the darkest aspects of Nazi rule, many of which are often artificially divided or treated separately in the highly specialized literature on the Third Reich: the rise of the SS and the emergence of the Nazi police state; the decision-making processes that led to the Holocaust; the interconnections between anti-Jewish and Germanization policies; and the different ways in which German occupation regimes operated across Nazi-controlled Europe. On a more personal level, it illustrates the historical circumstances under which young men from perfectly 'normal' middle-class backgrounds can become political extremists determined to use ultra-violence to implement their dystopian fantasies of radically transforming the world. #Quote by Robert Gerwarth
Historical Sites quotes by Emery Lee
#9. I bid you welcome to a new Utopia where men may be free of the so-called moral subjugations and constraints, and where for a time we may shake off those bonds of servitude wherein we are so tyrrannously enslaved."
"You are the humanist,George, not I- what the deuce does he natter on about?"
"Mostly whores and Booze," George replied with a grin.
Sandwidh contined while rapping once more upon the door, "Man is led into vice only when he is denied, my friends; for it is his nature to long after things forbidden and to desire most fervently what is denied."
"Another translation?" Philip asked George.
"Whores and booze ... in boundless supply."
"Ah,"Philip said. "I stand in renewed appreciation of the philosophers. #Quote by Emery Lee
Historical Sites quotes by Suzanne Enoch
#10. I didn't have much notice, either, and you don't see me stomping about or trying to encourage people to faint or cry." Oh, she likely shouldn't have said that, either.
"Ye've a slightly better hold of yer temper than Coll does."
"A dragon would seem to have an easier temper than your brother," she blurted, then put a hand over her mouth. What was wrong with her tonight?
He snorted. "I cannae argue with that. #Quote by Suzanne Enoch
Historical Sites quotes by Shelly Thacker
#11. ... not within my memory."

"All 300 years of it?"

That comment earned her a frown.
"My apologies," she amended lightly. "I supposed I should not tease you about being so old."

"Nay, feel free."
His slow smile flashed in the moonlight.
"I would be happy to prove to you that I possess all the prowess and stamina of a man of 30. Mayhap I should demonstrate. #Quote by Shelly Thacker
Historical Sites quotes by Paul Auster
#12. Every historical moment needs the stories to be told about it. #Quote by Paul Auster

have chosen, rebellion and revolution end in the same dilemma: either police rule or insanity. #Quote by Albert Camus
Historical Sites quotes by N. T. Wright
#15. They are being offered a narrative, an historical story whose hope of 'salvation' lies not in a flight from history but in a great convulsive change within history, a transformation in which there will be continuity with the present as well as discontinuity. #Quote by N. T. Wright
Historical Sites quotes by Rehan Khan
#16. An act of kindness, be it a sweet word, or a supporting hand, is never wasted upon those with nothing in the world - Konjic #Quote by Rehan Khan
Historical Sites quotes by Gilles Deleuze
#17. The annals of official philosophy are populated by 'bureaucrats of pure reason' who speak in 'the shadow of the despot' and are in historical complicity with the State. They invent 'a properly spiritual…absolute State that… effectively functions in the mind.' Theirs is a discourse of sovereign judgment, of stable subjectivity legislated by 'good' sense, of rocklike identity, 'universal' truth, and (white male) justice. 'Thus the exercise of their thought is in conformity with the aims of the real State, with the dominant significations, and with the requirements of the established order. #Quote by Gilles Deleuze
Historical Sites quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#18. We are not makers of history. We are made by history. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Historical Sites quotes by Michael Rostovtzeff
#19. For me archaeology is not a source of illustrations for written texts, but an independent source of historical information, with no less value and importance, sometimes more importance, that the written sources. #Quote by Michael Rostovtzeff
Historical Sites quotes by Carl Sagan
#20. For all the tantalizing and provocative character of the Viking results, I know a hundred places on Mars which are far more interesting than our landing sites. The ideal tool is a roving vehicle carrying on advanced experiments, particularly in imaging, chemistry and biology. Prototypes of such rovers are under development by NASA. They know on their own how to go over rocks, how not to fall down ravines, how to get out of tight spots. It is within our capability to land a rover on Mars that could scan its surroundings, see the most interesting place in its field of view and, by the same time tomorrow, be there. Every day a new place, a complex, winding traverse over the varied topography of this appealing planet. #Quote by Carl Sagan
Historical Sites quotes by Debra Holland
#21. It's not fair that our dogs don't have longer lives. When I get to heaven, I intend to scold God for that. #Quote by Debra Holland
Historical Sites quotes by Michel De Certeau
#22. They become liberated spaces that can be occupied. A rich indetermination gives them, by means of a semantic rarefaction, the function of articulating a second, poetic geography on top of the geography of the literal, forbidden or permitted meaning. They insinuate other routes into the functionalist and historical order of movement. Walking follows them: 'I fill this great empty space with a beautiful name. #Quote by Michel De Certeau
Historical Sites quotes by Alpha Four
#23. A man's perspective is limited by the brevity of his existence.
Even living deliberately, how far up can we reach?
Standing on our miniscule patch of time, how far into the future can we see? How much of the past can one truly understand?

Yet, only a recreant spends their precious drops of sand before dropping back
into the abyss lounging in indulgence, not striving for understanding, knowledge,
answers that those of us
scourged/consecrated with consciousness
should seek with unconquerable passion. #Quote by Alpha Four
Historical Sites quotes by Alex Gibney
#24. Why do we even need WikiLeaks? They're not the only organization that publishes leaks. And they don't have some special technology that allows them to post on the Internet with mirrored sites. The idea of WikiLeaks lives on, but as an organization, it's become increasingly irrelevant. #Quote by Alex Gibney
Historical Sites quotes by Ben Schott
#25. The web can be a fast trip to the library, giving you immediate access to a government report, or it can filter media for you, which is why I look at around 15- 20 of these sites every day. #Quote by Ben Schott
Historical Sites quotes by Robert Kocharian
#26. For us, universal values such as justice, morality and peace cannot be disputed and it is for this reason that we pursue the restoration of historical truth. #Quote by Robert Kocharian
Historical Sites quotes by Ken Wilson
#27. The rejection of all homosexual acts is rooted in a desire to uphold what is understood to be the meaning of the prohibitive Scriptures and the tradition of heterosexual marriage. It is an attempt to be careful to walk in faithfulness to God. The rejection of exclusionary practices aimed at gay and lesbian people is rooted in a desire to uphold Scripture by seeking to carefully understand its meaning in the original historical context and to apply Scripture's teaching carefully. It is an attempt to uphold Scripture's caution against religious zeal that unintentionally accepts harm of the neighbor or fails to love the neighbor well. Both positions are principled positions seeking to uphold important goods. #Quote by Ken Wilson
Historical Sites quotes by Jon Meacham
#28. I am an Episcopalian who takes the faith of my fathers seriously, and I would, I think, be disheartened if my own young children were to turn away from the church when they grow up. I am also a critic of Christianity, if by critic one means an observer who brings historical and literary judgment to bear on the texts and traditions of the church. #Quote by Jon Meacham
Historical Sites quotes by Harry Day
#29. Rules are for the obedience of fools and the guidance of wise men. #Quote by Harry Day
Historical Sites quotes by Michael A. Ledeen
#30. Paradoxically, preserving liberty may require the rule of a single leader-a dictator-willing to use those dreaded 'extraordinary measures, which few know how, or are willing, to employ.' #Quote by Michael A. Ledeen
Historical Sites quotes by Erndell Scott
#31. Tolerance over time breeds resentment. Only through understanding, that comes from the acceptance of one another's differences, shall we find true peace. #Quote by Erndell Scott
