Hunger Strikers quotes by Glen Hansard
#1. I grew up wearing black arm-bands when the hunger strikers died. I went on those marches. I grew up basically a Provo, though I never obviously got into any activities. I was writing 'IRA, Brits out' on walls all over where I grew up, but that was a false sense of Irishness. #Quote by Glen Hansard
Hunger Strikers quotes by Rod Stryker
#2. I am grateful for the unending hunger to rest in the mind of Buddha, the heart of Krishna, a domain where all yogis, sages, and saints abide, waiting for those whose real self has emerged from the searing pilgrimage of Spirit's flames. #Quote by Rod Stryker
Hunger Strikers quotes by Alice Cooper
#3. It doesn't matter how many drugs I take, I'm not fulfilled. This isn't satisfying. There's a spiritual hunger going on. Everybody feels it. If you don't feel it now, you will. Trust me. You will ...
Drinking beer is easy. Trashing your hotel room is easy. But being a Christian, that's a tough call. That's the real rebellion. #Quote by Alice Cooper

Hunger Strikers quotes by Abria Mattina
#5. I solved world hunger."

"Yeah, right."

"Oh, ye of little faith."

"You realize that solving world hunger would mean you'd be doing something good for a change?"

"Ah, but there's the kicker: I destroyed my solutions." He finally looks away from the window and gives me this cocky smirk. "Malevolence 101, Kirk. #Quote by Abria Mattina
Hunger Strikers quotes by George MacDonald
#6. Even Annie did not then know that it was the soul's hunger, the vague sense of a need which nothing but the God of human faces, the God of the morning and of the starful night, the God of love and self-forgetfulness, can satisfy, that sent her money-loving, poverty-stricken, pining, grumbling old aunt out staring towards the east. It is this formless idea of something at hand that keeps men and women striving to tear from the bosom of the world the secret of their own hopes. How little they know what they look for in reality is their God! This is that for which their heart and their flesh cry out. #Quote by George MacDonald
Hunger Strikers quotes by Alice Von Hildebrand
#7. There are things that do not change, which have an absolutely and transcendent validity, and which every person has a right to know. Religiously, morally, humanly, and politically our great nation can only hope to survive if it stands firmly on the ground of truth and gives its children the bread for which they hunger. This is the great task of education. #Quote by Alice Von Hildebrand
Hunger Strikers quotes by Bruce Hampton
#8. ...they marveled at the animal's elusiveness, loyalty, and affection, its willingness to defend its territory; its stamina and ability to travel long distances and resist hunger for many days; its acute use of odor, sight, and sound in locating prey and avoiding danger; its patience, following a sick or wounded prey for great distances; and its contentment to be away from its home for long periods of time. Working cooperatively with fellow pack mates, the wolf demonstrated time and again it power over prey by encircling it, ambushing it, or running it to exhaustion --the same methods that Native Americans themselves used. In all these manifestations, they found the wolf supremely worthy of emulation. #Quote by Bruce Hampton
Hunger Strikers quotes by Lorrie Moore
#9. I mean ... " Dennis was saying, looking pointedly at Mave, but Mave was watching the waitress approach. Oh, life, oh, sweet, forgiven for the ice ... He grabbed Mave's wrist. There was always an emergency. And then there was love. And then there was another emergency. That was the sandwiching of it. Emergency. Love. Emergency. "I mean, it's not as if you've been dozing off," Dennis was saying, his voice reaching her now, high and watery. "I mean, correct me if I'm wrong," he said, "but I don't think I've been having this conversation alone." He tightened his grip. "I mean, have I? #Quote by Lorrie Moore
Hunger Strikers quotes by Kahlil Gibran
#10. Do not love half lovers
Do not entertain half friends
Do not indulge in works of the half talented
Do not live half a life
and do not die a half death
If you choose silence, then be silent
When you speak, do so until you are finished
Do not silence yourself to say something
And do not speak to be silent
If you accept, then express it bluntly
Do not mask it
If you refuse then be clear about it
for an ambiguous refusal is but a weak acceptance
Do not accept half a solution
Do not believe half truths
Do not dream half a dream
Do not fantasize about half hopes
Half a drink will not quench your thirst
Half a meal will not satiate your hunger
Half the way will get you no where
Half an idea will bear you no results
Your other half is not the one you love
It is you in another time yet in the same space
It is you when you are not
Half a life is a life you didn't live,
A word you have not said
A smile you postponed
A love you have not had
A friendship you did not know
To reach and not arrive
Work and not work
Attend only to be absent
What makes you a stranger to them closest to you
and they strangers to you
The half is a mere moment of inability
but you are able for you are not half a being
You are a whole that exists to live a life
not half a life #Quote by Kahlil Gibran
Hunger Strikers quotes by Karen O
#11. I feel like there's a hunger in the culture now for the live experience maybe as a counterpoint to the more sort of synthetic lives that we've been living. #Quote by Karen O
Hunger Strikers quotes by Thomas Chalmers
#12. Such is the grasping tendency of the human heart, that it must have a something to lay hold of - and which, if wrested away without the substitution of another something in its place, would leave a void and a vacancy as painful to the mind, as hunger is to the natural system ... . The heart must have something to cling to ... #Quote by Thomas Chalmers
Hunger Strikers quotes by Thomas Wolfe
#13. There is no happy land. There is no end to hunger. #Quote by Thomas Wolfe
Hunger Strikers quotes by Addison Moore
#14. Suffering is the nature of this world. It is the golden standard by which all things are measured. It is not happiness that sets the bar, but agony. Even happiness cannot be fully recognized without the right measure of misery to contrast its borders. Suffering magnifies hunger-exhaustion-prods you to move when prosperity is just a dream out of reach. It is the mortal twin of eternal hope. How you respond to its touch molds you, shapes your future as it rains down oppression like fire over your shoulders.
Deception. It laid over my world like a bruise. Covered it so completely I bought the lie that the shadow offered and found comfort nestled in its thorny arms. I walked the trail it dusted with breadcrumb, walked in the slip noose it had skillfully wove and dove off the cliff without realizing- willingly, with vigor.
Heartbreak. There is no bigger void, no darker shade of soot- no ache more unstoppable than that of a broken heart.
A heart in pieces can very much kill you-without love's healing touch, you will surely die.
They say time heals all wounds.
They lied. #Quote by Addison Moore
Hunger Strikers quotes by Naomi Mitchison
#15. If he could sleep, she thought, sleep through the unhappy months, the heart's hunger, the months of death and cold and not having what you most want, and wake with time gone past and blurred and a new year coming. But perhaps it is too early in the year, she thought after that, and besides, he is not a bear. #Quote by Naomi Mitchison
Hunger Strikers quotes by Muse
#16. Agony's Plot
A zephyr skimmed
across my creamy skin
gently kissing
where the sun had been ... #Quote by Muse
Hunger Strikers quotes by Mother Teresa
#17. When a poor person dies of hunger it has not happened because God did not take care of him or her. It has happened because neither you nor I wanted to give that person what he or she needed. #Quote by Mother Teresa
Hunger Strikers quotes by Michael Grant
#18. So, Diana thought, that was the bait she had to lay out for Jack. Of course. What else? He might lust for Diana, and long for Brianna, but Jack's true love was made of silicon. #Quote by Michael Grant
Hunger Strikers quotes by Richard Wright
#19. A man will seek to express his relation to the stars; but when a man's consciousness has been riveted upon obtaining a loaf of bread, that loaf of bread is as important as the stars. #Quote by Richard Wright
Hunger Strikers quotes by Russell Sherman
#20. As Bartok put it so succinctly: "Competitions are for horses." Nothing could be more barbaric that the practice or ranking artists as though they were divers or figure skaters ... What one suspects is that the appetite for dividing the world into winners and losers, anointed and anonymous, is so compulsive that it feeds with special, vindictive hunger on the most elusive and ephemeral of subjects. For if music can be reduced to games of power and success, then innocence-love without profit-can be dealt a crushing blow. #Quote by Russell Sherman
Hunger Strikers quotes by William Shakespeare
#21. For the gods know I
speak this in hunger for bread, not in thirst for revenge #Quote by William Shakespeare
Hunger Strikers quotes by John Waters
#22. Maybe there is no better novel in the world than Denton Welch's In Youth Is Pleasure. Just holding it in my hands, so precious, so beyond gay, so deliciously subversive, is enough to make illiteracy a worse social crime than hunger. #Quote by John Waters
Hunger Strikers quotes by Marian Wright Edelman
#23. Homeless shelters, child hunger, and child suffering have become normalized in the richest nation on earth. It's time to reset our moral compass and redefine how we measure success. #Quote by Marian Wright Edelman
Hunger Strikers quotes by Mary Hunter Austin
#24. Man is a great blunderer going about in the woods, and there is no other except the bear makes so much noise. #Quote by Mary Hunter Austin
Hunger Strikers quotes by Sri Aurobindo
#25. My love is not a hunger of the heart, My love is not a craving of the flesh; It came to me from God, to God returns. #Quote by Sri Aurobindo
Hunger Strikers quotes by Jonathan Auxier
#26. Boredom is anathema to the adventurous spirit, and when mixed with hunger, the effect could be forgot toxic. #Quote by Jonathan Auxier
Hunger Strikers quotes by M.F.K. Fisher
#27. When I write of hunger, I am really writing about love and the hunger for it, and warmth and the love of it and it is all one. #Quote by M.F.K. Fisher
Hunger Strikers quotes by Vivienne Savage
#28. Her knees trembled. She told herself the weakness was from hunger - for food, not Ramsay's body. "Is #Quote by Vivienne Savage
Hunger Strikers quotes by Frederick Buechner
#29. The place to which God calls you is the place where your deep gladness and the world's deep hunger meet.
#Quote by Frederick Buechner
Hunger Strikers quotes by Suzanne Collins
#30. Peeta, you were supposed to wake me after a couple of hours," I say.
"For what? Nothing's going on here," he says. "Besides, I like watching you sleep. You don't scowl. Improves your looks a lot."
This, of course, brings on a scowl that makes him grin. #Quote by Suzanne Collins
Hunger Strikers quotes by John Denver

Hunger Strikers quotes by Mary Francis Kennedy Fisher
#33. Or you can broil the meat, fry the onions, stew the garlic in the red wine ... and ask me to supper. I'll not care, really, even if your nose is a little shiny, so long as you are self-possessed and sure that wolf or no wolf, your mind is your own and your heart is another's and therefore in the right place. #Quote by Mary Francis Kennedy Fisher
Hunger Strikers quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
#34. To some of us, hunger was more academic than real, but we must try to develop the ability to feel the urgency of such a situation. #Quote by Eleanor Roosevelt
Hunger Strikers quotes by Edgar Guest
#35. There's nothing that builds up a toil-weary soul
Like a day on a stream,
Back on the banks of the old fishing hole
Where a fellow can dream.
There's nothing so good for a man as to flee
From the city and lie
Full length in the shade of a whispering tree
And gaze at the sky.
It is good for the world that men hunger to go
To the banks of a stream,
And weary of sham and of pomp and of show
They have somewhere to dream.
For this life would be dreary and sordid and base
Did they not now and then
Seek refreshment and calm in God's wide, open space
And come back to be men. #Quote by Edgar Guest
Hunger Strikers quotes by Kisari Mohan Ganguli
#36. Some declare that action should be shunned and that salvation is attainable by knowledge. The Brahmanas say that though one may have a knowledge of eatable things, yet his hunger will not be appeased unless he actually eats. Those branches of knowledge that help the doing of work, bear fruit, but not other kinds, for the fruit of work is of ocular demonstration. A thirsty person drinks water, and by that act his thirst is allayed. This result proceeds, no doubt, from work. Therein lies the efficacy of work. If anyone thinks that something else is better than work, I deem, his work and his words are meaningless. #Quote by Kisari Mohan Ganguli
Hunger Strikers quotes by John Steinbeck
#37. Some men hunger so much for love that they lose everything that is loveable about them. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Hunger Strikers quotes by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
#38. These are the hands whose sturdy labor brings The peasant's food, the golden pomp of kings; This is the page whose letters shall be seen, Changed by the sun to words of living green; This is the scholar whose immortal penSpells the first lesson hunger taught to men; These are the lines that heaven-commanded Toil Shows on his deed, - the charter of the soil! #Quote by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
Hunger Strikers quotes by Victor Hugo
#39. She worked to live; then, also to live, for the heart too has its hunger, she loved. #Quote by Victor Hugo
Hunger Strikers quotes by Lee Child
#40. ... They figured they would eat in California. Which would make them hungry, but Reacher didn't mind being hungry. he believed hunger kept him sharp. He believed is stimulated creativity in the brain. Another old evolutionary legacy. If you're hungry, you work out a smarter way to get the next woolly mammoth, today, not tomorrow. #Quote by Lee Child
