Puritan Dilemma quotes by Roald Dahl
#3. We may see a Creature with forty-nine heads
Who lives in the desolate snow,
And whenever he catches a cold (which he dreads)
He has forty-nine noses to blow.
'We may see the venomous Pink-Spotted Scrunch
Who can chew up a man with one bite.
It likes to eat five of them roasted for lunch
And eighteen for its supper at night.
'We may see a Dragon, and nobody knows
That we won't see a Unicorn there.
We may see a terrible Monster with toes
Growing out of the tufts of his hair.
'We may see the sweet little Biddy-Bright Hen
So playful, so kind and well-bred;
And such beautiful eggs! You just boil them and then
They explode and they blow off your head.
'A Gnu and a Gnocerous surely you'll see
And that gnormous and gnorrible Gnat
Whose sting when it stings you goes in at the knee
And comes out through the top of your hat.
'We may even get lost and be frozen by frost.
We may die in an earthquake or tremor.
Or nastier still, we may even be tossed
On the horns of a furious Dilemma.
'But who cares! Let us go from this horrible hill!
Let us roll! Let us bowl! Let us plunge!
Let's go rolling and bowling and spinning until
We're away from old Spiker and Sponge! #Quote by Roald Dahl
Puritan Dilemma quotes by Clayton M Christensen
#4. They are always motivated to go up-market, and almost never motivated to defend the new or low-end markets that the disruptors find attractive. We call this phenomenon asymmetric motivation. It is the core of the innovator's dilemma, and the beginning of the innovator's solution. #Quote by Clayton M Christensen
Puritan Dilemma quotes by Cameron Cassidy
#5. Rhyvan faced a dilemma. Whether to stand in the middle of the highway right now, or go eat doritos. This boy clearly has problems. #Quote by Cameron Cassidy
Puritan Dilemma quotes by Henri J.M. Nouwen

Puritan Dilemma quotes by Francis Spufford
#8. Take the famous slogan on the atheist bus in London … "There's probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life." … The word that offends against realism here is "enjoy." I'm sorry - enjoy your life? Enjoy your life? I'm not making some kind of neo-puritan objection to enjoyment. Enjoyment is lovely. Enjoyment is great. The more enjoyment the better. But enjoyment is one emotion … Only sometimes, when you're being lucky, will you stand in a relationship to what's happening to you where you'll gaze at it with warm, approving satisfaction. The rest of the time, you'll be busy feeling hope, boredom, curiosity, anxiety, irritation, fear, joy, bewilderment, hate, tenderness, despair, relief, exhaustion … This really is a bizarre category error.
But not necessarily an innocent one … The implication of the bus slogan is that enjoyment would be your natural state if you weren't being "worried" by us believer … Take away the malignant threat of God-talk, and you would revert to continuous pleasure, under cloudless skies. What's so wrong with this, apart from it being total bollocks?
… Suppose, as the atheist bus goes by, that you are the fifty-something woman with the Tesco bags, trudging home to find out whether your dementing lover has smeared the walls of the flat with her own shit again. Yesterday when she did it, you hit her, and she mewled till her face was a mess of tears and mucus which you also had to clean up. The only thing that would ease the weight on you #Quote by Francis Spufford
Puritan Dilemma quotes by Alys Arden
#9. I love how quickly you've both warmed up to petty crime as a solution to our magical dilemma. #Quote by Alys Arden
Puritan Dilemma quotes by May Sarton
#10. The moral dilemma is to make peace with the unacceptable #Quote by May Sarton
Puritan Dilemma quotes by Tim Wu
#11. We've already seen the attention merchant's basic modus operandi: draw attention with apparently free stuff and then resell it. but a consequence of that model is a total dependence on gaining and holding attention. This means that under competition, the race will naturally run to the bottom; attention will almost invariably gravitate to the more garish, lurid, outrageous alternative, whatever stimulus may more likely engage what cognitive scientists call our 'automatic' attention as opposed to our 'controlled' attention, the kind we direct with intent. The race to a bottomless bottom, appealing to what one might call the audience's baser instincts, poses a fundamental, continual dilemma for the attention merchant-just how far will he go to get his harvest? If the history of attention capture teaches us anything, it is that the limits are often theoretical, and when real, rarely self-imposed. #Quote by Tim Wu
Puritan Dilemma quotes by Matthieu Ricard
#12. There is a dilemma, to reconcile three time scales: in the short term, the economy; in the middle range, global well - being generally; and, in the long range, the environment. #Quote by Matthieu Ricard
Puritan Dilemma quotes by M.G. DuPree
#13. Myth, in any culture, is the working out of present anxieties against a backdrop of a time (and sometimes place) removed from one's own – as though the fanciful setting allows one to see the dilemma of what needs working out more clearly, like a microbe in a petri dish. #Quote by M.G. DuPree
Puritan Dilemma quotes by Tipper Gore
#14. The dilemma for society is how to preserve personal and family values in a nation of diverse tastes. #Quote by Tipper Gore
Puritan Dilemma quotes by Simon Critchley
#15. Being anthropologically respectful of all faiths means being committed to none, and being left to drift without an anchor for one's most deeply held beliefs. To have such an anchor means being committed to a specific community. The only way Obama can overcome his sense of detachment and resolve his mother's dilemma is through a commitment to Christianity. #Quote by Simon Critchley
Puritan Dilemma quotes by Mary McCarthy
#16. I felt caught in a dilemma that was new to me then but which since has become horribly familiar: the trap of adult life, in which you are held, wriggling, powerless to act because you can see both sides. On that occasion, as generally in the future, I compromised. #Quote by Mary McCarthy
Puritan Dilemma quotes by Susannah Sandlin
#17. Jena took a seat on the sofa, and Cole found himself with another dilemma. Should he sit next to her or take the other chair? Such a decision shouldn't feel momentous, but it did. It felt as momentous as a choice between the past and the future.
It felt like a choice between friendship and maybe more than friendship.
He sat next to her on the sofa. #Quote by Susannah Sandlin
Puritan Dilemma quotes by Thomas Watson
#18. Eternity to the godly is a day that has no sunset; eternity to the wicked is a night that has no sunrise. #Quote by Thomas Watson
Puritan Dilemma quotes by Hugh Hefner
#19. I was raised in a typical Puritan Midwestern Methodist home and there was a lot of hurt and hypocrisy in those times. And I think that whatever part Playboy played and that I managed to play in terms of the sexual revolution came out of what I saw in the negative part of that life and tried to change things in some positive way so that people could choose alternate personal ways of living their lives. #Quote by Hugh Hefner
Puritan Dilemma quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#20. The greatest dilemma man has to face is figuring out what to do with his time #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Puritan Dilemma quotes by Robert K. Greenleaf
#21. On an important decision one rarely has 100% of the information needed for a good decision no matter how much one spends or how long one waits. And, if one waits too long, he has a different problem and has to start all over. This is the terrible dilemma of the hesitant decision maker. #Quote by Robert K. Greenleaf
Puritan Dilemma quotes by Jarod Kintz
#22. My nickname in high school was Catch 22. Not because I was a walking dilemma, but because I had 22 catches freshman year. The interesting part was that I didn't play football, but that's just how inaccurate our quarterback was. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Puritan Dilemma quotes by Gunter Grass
#23. Art is hard for a puritan to understand. #Quote by Gunter Grass
Puritan Dilemma quotes by Charles Stross
#24. There are rumors about the depraved and perverted practices of the pulchritudinous protestant puritan plutocratic penis-people priesthood, of shadowy bacchanalian polyamorous practices ... I suspect, to be blunt, someone was blackmailing him. #Quote by Charles Stross
Puritan Dilemma quotes by Allen Klein
#25. Sometimes it takes ten seconds to see some humor in your dilemmas, sometimes ten years. #Quote by Allen Klein
Puritan Dilemma quotes by Ibrahim Ibrahim
#26. The language crystallizes nations into certain patterns yet according to its own fabric, and that has always been a socio-national security dilemma to every nation. #Quote by Ibrahim Ibrahim
Puritan Dilemma quotes by Melina Marchetta
#27. Finn, listen!" Trevanion said, his voice raw."I prayed to see you one more time. It's all I prayed for. Nothing more. And my prayers were answered. Go east, I'll lend them west."
"We have a dilemma, then," Finnikin said fiercely. "Because I prayed that you would grow old and hold my children in your arms as you held me. My prayers have not been answered yet, Trevanion. So whose prayer is more worthy? Yours or mine? #Quote by Melina Marchetta
Puritan Dilemma quotes by Natalie Goldberg
#28. We heard about people who go back to their roots. That is good, but don't get stuck in the root. There is the branch, the leaf, the flower - all reaching toward the immense sky. We are many things. In Israel looking for my "roots", I realized that while I was a Jew, I was also an American, a feminist, a writer, a Buddhist. We are products of the modern era - it is our richness and our dilemma. We are not one thing. Our roots are becoming harder to dig out. Yet they are important and the ones most easy to avoid because there is often pain embedded there - that's why we left in the first place.

When I first moved to Minnesota, Jim White, a very fine poet, said to me, "Whatever you do, don't become a regional writer." Don't get caught in the trap of becoming provincial. While you write about the cows in Iowa, how they stand and bend to chew, feel compassion simultaneously for the cows in Russia, in Czechoslovakia, for their eventual death and for their flanks cooked and served in stews, in bowls and on plates, to feed people on both sides of the earth. Go into your region, but don't stop there. Let it pique your curiosity to examine and look closely at more of the world. #Quote by Natalie Goldberg
Puritan Dilemma quotes by Chris Carter
#29. I have to be careful with surfing. It's still an addiction to me. It's all I want to do, and that's the big dilemma I have with it. #Quote by Chris Carter
Puritan Dilemma quotes by Chirag Tulsiani
#30. Sometimes, all that is required of us is to come to a decision, a decision which would determine our course thereafter, which is sudden, which is made in an instant and not out of introspection. Because the more we happen to brood, the more we burden the mind, with doubt with dilemma, whether to or whether not to.
Sometimes it is this decision that furnishes to be the highlight of our lives, it may cause us to diverge from our paths and lead us to new ones or narrow down our destinations altogether, either way it cherishes significance. #Quote by Chirag Tulsiani
Puritan Dilemma quotes by Annie Lennox
#31. One wouldn't want to have the same dilemmas at 50 as one had at 15. And indeed I don't. I have a very different take on life. #Quote by Annie Lennox
Puritan Dilemma quotes by King Hussein I
#32. The dilemma of our age is the combination of unprecedented material progress and systematic spiritual decline. The decline in public and private morality can be witnessed in the marketplace as well as the forums of international diplomacy. In the past, a man's honor and reputation were his most valuable assets. Business agreements were made with a handshake. Today one might be well advised to check the "bottom line" and read the "small print." #Quote by King Hussein I
Puritan Dilemma quotes by Kyle Cease
#33. I saw Hulk Hogan the other day in a parking lot, and I couldn't tell from a distance if it was Hulk Hogan or not. And I realized I've never had that dilemma before. I've always been able to tell immediately when looking at anybody if they were or were not Hulk Hogan. #Quote by Kyle Cease
