Religiosity Synonym quotes by Isaac Deutscher
#1. For nearly thirty years the powerful propaganda machines of Stalinism worked furiously to expunge Trotsky's name from the annals of the revolution, or to leave it there only as the synonym for arch-traitor. To the present Soviet generation, and not only to it, Trotsky's life-story is already like an ancient Egyptian sepulchre which is known to have contained the body of a great man and the record, engraved in gold, of his deeds; but tomb-robbers and ghouls have plundered and left it so empty and desolate that no trace is found of the record it once contained. The work of the tomb-robbers has, in this present instance, been so persistent that it has strongly affected the views even of independent Western historians and scholars. #Quote by Isaac Deutscher
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#2. To call the world God is not to explain it; it is only to enrich our language with a superfluous synonym. #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Anne Rice
#3. Our language needs endless synonyms for beautiful; the eyes could see what the tongue cannot possibly describe. #Quote by Anne Rice
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Stephen King
#4. Alone. Yes, that's the key word, the most awful word in the English tongue. Murder doesn't hold a candle to it and hell is only a poor synonym. #Quote by Stephen King
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Gregory Schrempp
#5. Long a topic of interest for history and philosophy of science, the Copernican Revolution more recently has become a favorite symbol for popular science writers. This symbol is used in two main ways, both of which shade easily into the mythic. First, the Copernican Revolution is invoked to mark a point of grand transformation between anthropocentric and objective thinking. Second, many portrayals of the Copernican Revolution heroize its protagonist and ritualize his deed. The Copernican Revolution designates an alleged shift in worldview that took place in the past, but also a sort of personal microcosm of that event - a rite of passage that any mind aspiring to science must undergo. The term "myth" in some usages becomes a near-synonym for pre-Copernican thought - a definition that is maddeningly inadequate even though refreshingly concise. #Quote by Gregory Schrempp
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Peter Sloterdijk
#6. A completely different aspect, however, the thoroughly incommensurable one, lies in the imposition of accepting that the torso sees me while I observe it - indeed, that it eyes me more sharply than I can look at it.
The ability to perform the inner gesture with which one makes space for this improbability inside oneself most probably consists precisely in the talent that Max Weber denied having. This talent is 'religiosity', understood as an innate disposition and a talent that can be developed, making it comparable to musicality. One can practise it, just as one practises melodic passages or syntactic patterns. In this sense, religiosity is congruent with a certain grammatical promiscuity. Where it operates, objects elastically exchange places with subjects. #Quote by Peter Sloterdijk
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Dean Koontz
#7. I said what might have been a bad word meaning excrement, but I hope that I used a polite synonym. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Christopher Lasch
#8. The proper reply to right wing religiosity is not to insist that politics and religion don't mix. This is the stock response of the left. #Quote by Christopher Lasch
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Kitty Kelley
#9. I tend to place my own value in spirituality rather than religiosity. #Quote by Kitty Kelley
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Jodi Picoult
#10. Purgatory, he thought, was just a synonym for 'tomorrow'. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Religiosity Synonym quotes by George Monbiot
#11. The angry men know that this golden age (of fossil fuels) has gone; but they cannot find the words for the constraints they hate. Clutching their copies of Atlas Shrugged, they flail around, accusing those who would impede them of communism, fascism, religiosity, misanthropy, but knowing at heart that these restrictions are driven by something far more repulsive to the unrestrained man: the decencies we owe to other human beings. #Quote by George Monbiot
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Jonathan Haidt
#12. Religiosity developed because successful religions made groups more efficient at turning resources into offspring. (including art, cathedrals, cities, earthworks, etc?) #Quote by Jonathan Haidt
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Darrel Ray
#13. The more risk averse a person is, the higher his or her religiosity [ ... ]. In other words, risk-averse people don't want to take a chance on getting on the wrong side of god. #Quote by Darrel Ray
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Paul Valery
#14. I am not averse to generalizing the notion of "modern" to designate a certain way of life, rather than making it purely a synonym of 'contemporary'. There are moments and places in history to which 'we moderns' could return without too greatly disturbing the harmony of those times, without seeming objects infinitely curious and conspicuous ... creatures shocking, dissonant, and unassailable. #Quote by Paul Valery
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Jennifer Echols
#15. The only people who ever called me were my dad, my brother, assorted Vaders to tell me to come early or late to work (including Sean, but he always sounded grumpy that he had to call me, so it wasn't as big a thrill as you'd think), Tammy to tell me to come early or late to tennis practice, and Frances. I glanced at the caller ID screen and clicked the phone on. "What's up, Fanny?"
From the time Mom died until I was eleven, Frances the au pair had hung out in the background of my life. Once Sean overheard someone calling her Fanny, whch apparently is a nickname for Frances. We found this shocking. I mean, who has a nickname that's a synonym for derriere? Who's named Frances in the first place? So the boys started calling her Fanny the Nanny. Then, Booty the Babysitter. Then, Butt I Don't Need a Governess. This had everything to do with the nickname Fanny and the fact that she tried not to get upset at being addressed in this undignified manner when she was trying to raise compassionate, responsible children. It had nothing to do with her having an outsized rumpus. Frances had a cute figure, if you could see it under all that hippie-wear. #Quote by Jennifer Echols
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Scott Anderson
#16. Part of Sykes's motive was rooted in religiosity. A devout Catholic, he regarded a return of the ancient tribe of Israel to the Holy Land as a way to correct
a nearly two-thousand-year-old wrong. That view had taken on new passion and
urgency with the massacres of the Armenians. To Sykes, in that ongoing atrocity, the Ottoman Empire had proven it could never again be trusted to protect
its religious minority populations. At war's end, the Christian and Jewish Holy
Land of Palestine would be taken from it, and the failure of the Crusades made
right. #Quote by Scott Anderson
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Bob Dylan
#17. Here's the thing with me and the religious thing. This is the flat-out truth: I find the religiosity and philosophy in the music. I don't find it anywhere else. #Quote by Bob Dylan
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Guy LAROCHE
#18. Eccentricity is not the synonym for elegance. #Quote by Guy LAROCHE
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Nick Nwaogu
#19. I found the word dwarf really offensive, but there was not one better synonym in the dictionary. Midget? Pygmy? Manikin? Homunculus? They all sounded worse to me, so I had to accept my fate. #Quote by Nick Nwaogu
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Louise Gluck
#20. Panic is a synonym for being; in its delays, in its swerving and rushing syntax, its frantic lists and questions, it fends off time and loss. Its opposite is oblivion: not the tranquil oblivion of sleep but the threatening oblivions of sex and death. #Quote by Louise Gluck
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Russell Baker
#21. Schoolteachers seemed determined to persuade me that 'classic' is a synonym for 'narcotic'. #Quote by Russell Baker
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Aleena Farrukh
#22. Fantasy Is just another synonym for "having-your-own-crazy-world-bcause-the-real-one-is-too-cynical-to-handle-your-craziness". #Quote by Aleena Farrukh
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche
#23. How wonderful it would be, I thought, if only we could practice the teachings of the Buddha as he really taught them from his own experience - free from the clouds of religiosity that often surround them Yet it's difficult to distinguish the tools themselves from their cultural packaging. #Quote by Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Satyendra Singh 'Shyamal'
#24. Tolerance is not a synonym of Weakness #Quote by Satyendra Singh 'Shyamal'
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Timothy Snyder
#25. This is pluralism: not a synonym of relativism, but rather an antonym. Pluralism accepts the moral reality of different kinds of truth, but rejects the idea that they can all be placed on a single scale, measured by a single value. #Quote by Timothy Snyder
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Wilhelm Reich
#26. The basic religious idea in all patriarchal religions is the negation of the sexual needs. Only in very primitive religions were religiosity and sexuality identical. When social organization passed from matriarchy to patriarchy and class society, the unity of religious and sexual cult underwent a split; the religious cult became the antithesis of the sexual. With that, the cult of sexuality went out of existence. It was replaced by the brothel, pornography and backstairs-sexuality. It goes without saying that when sexual experiences ceased to be one with the religious cults, when, instead, they became antithetical to them, religious excitation assumed a new function: that of being a substitute for the lost sexual pleasure, now no longer affirmed by society. Only this contradiction inherent in religious excitation makes the strength and the tenacity of the religions understandable: the contradiction of its being at one and the same time antisexual and a substitute for sexuality. #Quote by Wilhelm Reich
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Philip Guedalla
#27. Greatness is so often a courteous synonym for great success. #Quote by Philip Guedalla
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Timothy Leary
#28. Don't be intimidated by Caesar's Hollywood fake versions of religiosity. If life has a meaning for you beyond the TV-studio game, you are religious! Spell it out! #Quote by Timothy Leary
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Nicholas Meyer
#29. So the Lincoln movie gets trashed because Connecticut voted for the amendment - not to mention how the people in Connecticut feel - but there's a lot of that. And I think it precedes from a fundamental misunderstanding of cinema. They are entertainment. And I'd like to say that entertainment isn't a synonym for disposable or mindless or stupid. Hamlet? Pretty entertaining from where I come from. #Quote by Nicholas Meyer
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Jodi Picoult
#30. There is a reason the word belonging has a synonym for want at its center; it is the human condition. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#31. Renounce and give up. What did Christ say? "He that loseth his life for my sake shall find it." Again and again did he preach renunciation as the only way to perfection. There comes a time when the mind awakes from this long and dreary dream-the child gives up its play and wants to go back to its mother. Renunciation is not asceticism. Are all beggars Christ? Poverty is not a synonym for holiness; often the reverse. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#32. Emphatically rejecting ali traditional religions and claiming for their teachings the epithet "scientific," various writers tried to substitute a new faith for the old ones. They claimed to know precisely what the mysterious power that directs ali cosmic becoming has in store for mankind. They proclaimed an absolute standard of values. Good is what works along the lines that this power wants mankind to follow; everything else is bad. In their vocabulary "progressive" is a synonym of good and "reactionary" a synonym of bad. Inevitably progress will triumph over reaction because it is impossible for men to divert the course of history from the direction prescribed by the plan of the mysterious prime mover. Such is the metaphysics of Karl Marx, the faith of contemporary selfstyled progressivism.
Marxism is a revolutionary doctrine. It expressly declares that the design of the prime mover will be accomplished by civil war. It implies that ultimately in the battles of these campaigns the just cause, that is, the cause of progress, must conquer. Then ali conflicts concerning judgments of value will disappear. The liquidation of ali dissenters will establish the undisputed supremacy of the absolute eternal values.
This formula for the solution of conflicts of value judgments is certainly not new. It is a device known and practiced from time immemorial. Kill the infidels! Burn the heretics! What is new is merely the fact that today it is sold to the public under the label o #Quote by Ludwig Von Mises
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Fareed Zakaria
#33. The Romans saw loss of virtue all around them. The Victorians decried the decline in religiosity in the next generation. #Quote by Fareed Zakaria
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Bruce Lee
#34. The measure of the moral worth of a man is his happiness. The better the man, the more happiness. Happiness is the synonym of well-being #Quote by Bruce Lee
Religiosity Synonym quotes by John Arnott MacCulloch
#35. The folk of a Celtic type, whether pre-Celtic, Celtic, or Norse, have all spoken a Celtic language and exhibit the same old Celtic characteristics - vanity, loquacity, excitability, fickleness, imagination, love of the romantic, fidelity, attachment to family ties, sentimental love of their country, religiosity passing over easily to superstition, and a comparatively high degree of sexual morality. #Quote by John Arnott MacCulloch
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Richard Rohr
#36. When you say you love God, you are saying you love everything. Immature religion becomes an excuse for not loving a whole bunch of things and reveals that you have not had an authentic God experience yet. Rigid religion and compulsive religiosity, all unloving religion, is a rather clear sign that you have not met God! Once you have had a unitive experience with God, reality, or even yourself, your life invariably shows two things: quiet confidence and joyous gratitude. #Quote by Richard Rohr
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Robert Lane Greene
#37. Americans tend to use "nation" as a synonym for "country." But political scientists and historians, as well as many Europeans, tend to use the term for a much more specific phenomenon: a group of people who feel they belong together, whether they have a country of their own or not. #Quote by Robert Lane Greene
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Mark Steyn
#38. One reason why the developed world has a difficult job grappling with the Islamist threat is that it doesn't take religion seriously. It condescends to it. In Europe's wholly secularized environment, the enduring religiosity of America is not just odd, but primitive. #Quote by Mark Steyn
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Nelson Goodman
#39. My title "The Fabrication of Facts," has the virtue not only of indicating pretty clearly what I am going to discuss but also of irritating those fundamentalists who know very well that facts are found not madder, that facts constitute the one and only real world, and that knowledge consists of believing the facts. These articles of faith so firmly possess most of us, they so bind and blind us, that "fabrication of fact" has a paradoxical sound. "Fabrication" has become a synonym for "falsehood" or "fiction" as contrasted with "truth" or "fact." Of course, we must distinguish falsehood and fiction from truth and fact; but we cannot, I am sure, do it on ground that fiction is fabricated and fact found. - 91 #Quote by Nelson Goodman
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Eleanor Catton
#40. Gascoigne believed that justice ought to be a synonym for mercy, not an alternative. #Quote by Eleanor Catton
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Linda Ellerbee
#41. What I like most about change is that it's synonym for 'hope'. If you are taking a risk, what you are really saying is, 'I believe in tomorrow and I will be part of it. #Quote by Linda Ellerbee
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Albert Einstein
#42. My deep religiosity [ ... ] found an abrupt ending at the age of twelve, through the reading of popular scientific books. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Norton Juster
#43. Perhaps you'd care for a synonym bun, suggested the duke. #Quote by Norton Juster
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Darrel Ray
#44. Normal people redirect their sexual energy all the time, but religion takes that skill and hijacks it. Religion says, "No, you cannot do that, that is sinful. Direct energy toward god."
Sexual desire does not disappear with increased religiosity and activity. Instead, it gets redirected but the thoughts and incoming stimulation continue. #Quote by Darrel Ray
Religiosity Synonym quotes by Ted Gup
#45. You have tens, hundreds of thousands of people in government, and just as many among contractors, who feel totally comfortable writing at the top of the document "internal use only," "official use only," and a million other synonyms, all of which amount to "none of your business" to the public. #Quote by Ted Gup
