Perls Prussian quotes by Karl Marx
#1. In a rational state it would be more appropriate to ensure that a cobbler passed an examination than an executive civil servant; because shoe-making is a craft in the absence of which it is still possible to be a good citizen and a man in society. But the necessary 'knowledge of the state' is a precondition in the absence of which one lives outside the state, cut off from the air one breathes and from oneself. Thus the 'examination' is nothing but a Masonic initiation, the legal recognition of the knowledge of citizenship, the acknowledgement of a privilege.

This 'link' between the 'individual' and his 'office', this objective bond between the knowledge of civil society and the knowledge of the state, namely the examination, is nothing but the bureaucratic baptism of knowledge, the official recognition of the transubstantiation of profane knowledge into sacred knowledge (it is plain that in every examination the examiner is omniscient).

It is not recorded that Greek and Roman statesmen ever took examinations. But then what is a Roman statesman compared to a Prussian civil servant! #Quote by Karl Marx
Perls Prussian quotes by Primo Levi
#2. We are slaves, deprived of every right, exposed to every insult, condemned to certain death, but we still possess one power, and we must defend it with all our strength for it is the last - the power to refuse our consent. So we must certainly wash our faces without soap in dirty water and dry ourselves on our jackets. We must polish our shoes, not because the regulation states it, but for dignity and propriety. We must walk erect, without dragging our feet, not in homage to Prussian discipline but to remain alive, not to begin to die. #Quote by Primo Levi
Perls Prussian quotes by Sebastian Barry
#3. And all those boys of Europe born in those times, and thereabouts those times, Russian, French, Belgian, Serbian, Irish, English, Scottish, Welsh, Italian, Prussian, German, Austrian, Turkish – and Canadian, Australian, American, Zulu, Gurkha, Cossack, and all the rest – their fate was written in a ferocious chapter in the book of life, certainly. Those millions of mothers and their million gallons of mother's milk, millions of instances of small talk and baby talk, beatings and kisses, ganseys and shoes, piled up in history in great ruined heaps, with a loud and broken music, human stories told for nothing, for ashes, for death's amusement, flung on the mighty scrapheap of souls, all those million boys in all their humours to be milled by the millstones of a coming war. #Quote by Sebastian Barry
Perls Prussian quotes by Florence Nightingale
#4. I have lived and slept in the same bed with English countesses and Prussian farm women ... no woman has excited passions among women more than I have. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Perls Prussian quotes by Leo Strauss
#5. The Prussian state is, for Hegel, the model most akin to the rational state because it represents, thanks both to the Protestant religion and the authority of the monarchy, a synthesis between the revolutionary exigencies of principles and the traditional exigencies of organization. #Quote by Leo Strauss
Perls Prussian quotes by Voltaire
#6. Where some states possess an army, the Prussian Army possesses a state. #Quote by Voltaire
Perls Prussian quotes by Gay Talese
#7. Too many people were obsessed with their heads and were alienated from their bodies, Perls believed, adding: We have to lose our minds and come to our senses. #Quote by Gay Talese
Perls Prussian quotes by Fritz Perls
#8. Our dependency makes slaves out of us, especially if this dependency is a dependency of our self-esteem. If you need encouragement, praise, pats on the back from everybody, then you make everybody your judge. #Quote by Fritz Perls
Perls Prussian quotes by Edmund Morris
#9. Imaginatively challenged folks, for whom crossing a state line amounted to foreign travel, could not conceive that the gray-blue-eyes inspecting them had, over the past year, similarly scrutinized Nandi warriors, Arab mullahs, Magyar landowners, French marshals, Prussian academics, and practically every monarch or minister of consequence in Europe--not to mention the maquettes in Rodin's studio, and whatever dark truths flickered in the gaze of dying lions. #Quote by Edmund Morris
Perls Prussian quotes by Frederick Salomon Perls
#10. There's always a possibility of richer maturation - of taking more and more responsibility for yourself and for your life ... And this is what I hope ... to make you understand how much you gain by taking re-sponsibility for every emotion, every movement you make, every thought you have ... We touch each other by honestly being what we are, not intentionally making contact. #Quote by Frederick Salomon Perls
Perls Prussian quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#11. Potassium cyanide," says the talent wrangler as she leans over to pick up a paper napkin off the floor. "Found naturally in the cassava or manioc roots native to Africa, used to tint architectural blueprints in the form of the deep-blue pigment known as Prussian blue. Hence the shade 'cyan' blue. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Perls Prussian quotes by Joy Williams
#12. But who knows what good might come from the least of us? From the bones of old horses is made the most beautiful Prussian Blue. #Quote by Joy Williams
Perls Prussian quotes by Robert T. Kiyosaki
#13. It was not until the Industrial Age, that a new demand began growing: the demand for employees. In response, the government took over the task of mass education, adopting the Prussian system, which is what most Western school systems in the world are still modeled after today. #Quote by Robert T. Kiyosaki
Perls Prussian quotes by Frederick Salomon Perls

Perls Prussian quotes by Frederick Salomon Perls
#15. Anxiety is the gap between now and later. #Quote by Frederick Salomon Perls
Perls Prussian quotes by Henning Von Tresckow
#16. The idea of freedom can never be disassociated from real Prussia. The real Prussian spirit means a synthesis between restraint and freedom, between voluntary subordination and conscientious leadership, between pride in oneself and consideration for others, between rigor and compassion. Unless a balance is kept between these qualities, the Prussian spirit is in danger of degenerating into soulless routine and narrow-minded dogmatism. #Quote by Henning Von Tresckow
Perls Prussian quotes by Barbara W. Tuchman
#17. Of the two classes of Prussian officer, the bull-necked and the wasp-waisted, he belonged to the second. Monocled and effete in appearance, cold and distant in manner, he concentrated with such single-mindedness on his profession that when an aide, at the end of an all-night staff ride in East Prussia, pointed out to him the beauty of the river Pregel sparkling in the rising sun, the General gave a brief, hard look and replied, 'An unimportant obstacle. #Quote by Barbara W. Tuchman
Perls Prussian quotes by D.H. Lawrence
#18. The officer sat with his long, fine hands lying on the table, perfectly still, and all his blood seemed to be corroding.
- The Prussian Officer #Quote by D.H. Lawrence
Perls Prussian quotes by Leonce Patry
#19. The weather was atrocious. A frightful storm burst upon us. We camped literally in water ... To cap our woe, there was no means to light a single fire. We had to imagine dinner. #Quote by Leonce Patry
Perls Prussian quotes by Salman Khan
#20. Today's world needs a workforce of creative, curious, and self-directed lifelong learners who are capable of conceiving and implementing novel ideas. Unfortunately, this is the type of student that the Prussian model actively suppresses. #Quote by Salman Khan
Perls Prussian quotes by Erich Von Manstein
#21. Prussian Field Marshals do not mutiny. #Quote by Erich Von Manstein
Perls Prussian quotes by Frederick Salomon Perls
#22. Teaching means to show a person that something is possible. #Quote by Frederick Salomon Perls
Perls Prussian quotes by Cassandra Clare
#23. Even the Inquisitor's eyebrows shot up when Magnus strode through the gate. The High Warlock was wearing black leather pants, a belt with a buckle in the shape of a jeweled M, and a cobalt-blue Prussian military jacket open over a white lace shirt. He shimmered with layers of glitter. His gaze rested for a moment on Alec's face with amusement and a hint of something else before moving on to Jace, prone on the ground.
"Is he dead?" he inquired. "He looks dead."
"No," snapped Maryse. "He's not dead."
"Have you checked? I could kick him if you want." Magnus moved toward Jace.
"Stop that!" the Inquisitor snapped, sounding like Clary's third-grade teacher demanding that she stop doodling on her desk with a marker. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Perls Prussian quotes by Frederick Salomon Perls
#24. Awareness in itself is healing. #Quote by Frederick Salomon Perls
Perls Prussian quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
#25. One can build the Empire State Building, discipline the Prussian army, make a state hierarchy mightier than God, yet fail to overcome the unaccountable superiority of certain human biengs. #Quote by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Perls Prussian quotes by Naomi Novik
#26. It is not as though we have not heard of you, Captain Laurence. We have all had a great many arguments, whether your aid would not be too expensive, to begin with."
"Sir," Laurence said, now baffled, "I beg your pardon; however should you know me from Adam?"
"If the world had not heard of you, after your adventure at Gdansk," Kutuzov said, meaning Danzig, where they had rescued the garrison from the wreck of the Prussian campaign, "or after the plague, we should certainly have heard of you after Brazil. Where you go, you leave half the world overturned behind you. You are more dangerous than Bonaparte in your own way, you and that beast of yours. #Quote by Naomi Novik
Perls Prussian quotes by Philip Kerr
#27. I don't much like opera, either. Especially Wagner. There's something about Wagner that's just too piss-German, too fucking Bavarian for a Prussian like me. I like my music to be every bit as vulgar as I am myself. I like a bit of innuendo and stocking-top when a woman's singing a song. #Quote by Philip Kerr
Perls Prussian quotes by Helen Garner
#28. How on earth could he not see it? It stood on the wooden floor behind him, in the corner just inside the door, where the light from the hallway poorly fell: an old-fashioned alarm clock with three blunt stumps for legs and a bell like a Prussian helmet. Its face, a faithful little moon, was turned up to her, its hands were spread to plead innocence, and its inner mechanism emitted without ceasing the rapid ribbon of blows called the passing of time. #Quote by Helen Garner
Perls Prussian quotes by Frederick Salomon Perls
#29. You cannot achieve happiness. Happiness happens and is a transitory stage. Imagine how happy I felt when I got relief from bladder pressure. How long did that happiness last? #Quote by Frederick Salomon Perls
Perls Prussian quotes by Frederick Salomon Perls
#30. I do my thing and you do your thing. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you, and I am I. And if by chance we find each other, it's beautiful. #Quote by Frederick Salomon Perls
Perls Prussian quotes by Frederick Salomon Perls
#31. As Albert Einstein once said to me: "Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity." But what is much more widespread than the actual stupidity is the playing stupid, turning off your ear, not listening, not seeing ... playing helpless. #Quote by Frederick Salomon Perls
Perls Prussian quotes by Edmund Morris
#32. [Theodore] Roosevelt had long ago discovered that the more provincial the supplicants, the less able were they to understand that their need was not unique: that he was not yearning to travel two thousand miles on bad trains to support the reelection campaign of a county sheriff, or to address the congregation of a new chapel in a landscape with no trees. His refusal, no matter how elaborately apologetic, was received more often in puzzlement than anger. Imaginatively challenged folks, for whom crossing a state line amounted to foreign travel, could not conceive that the gray-blue eyes inspecting them had, over the past year, similarly scrutinized Nandi warriors, Arab mullahs, Magyar landowners, French marshals, Prussian academics, or practically any monarch or minister of consequence in Europe -- not to mention the maquettes in Rodin's studio, and whatever dark truths flickered in the gaze of dying lions.

From COLONEL ROOSEVELT, p. 104. #Quote by Edmund Morris
Perls Prussian quotes by Leon G. Cooperman
#33. Having observed his market calls real time over the years, I can say that Jason Perl's application of the DeMark Indicators distinguishes his work from industry peers when it comes to market timing. This book demonstrates how traders can benefit from his insight, using the studies to identify the exhaustion of established trends or the onset of new ones. Whether you're fundamentally or technically inclined, Perl's DeMark Indicators is an invaluable trading resource. #Quote by Leon G. Cooperman
Perls Prussian quotes by Sarah MacLean
#34. Is the great Marquess of Ralston afraid of what might happen if he takes such a risk? The same man who once compromised a Prussian princess in Hyde Park?"
He blinked. "I did no such thing."
Callie couldn't help the little smile that flashed. "Ah, so we finally discover a legend that is not grounded in reality. #Quote by Sarah MacLean
