Serving quotes by Spencer Gordon
#3. One song, one note that heals the guilty chaos of our days, making sense of our loneliness, our perjured feelings, our sickness and our poverty, how we shall never be beautiful, how our heads will run over with unbearable secrets and how we are sentenced to this, serving us right
when the song should end, be cut down, finished, and the singer not go on singing. #Quote by Spencer Gordon
Serving quotes by Holly Walrath

Serving quotes by Henry Drummond
#5. Christ's teaching is that there is no happiness in having and getting anything, but only in giving. I repeat, there is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving. Half the world is on the wrong scent in pursuit of happiness. They think it consists in having and getting, and in being served by others. It consists in giving, and in serving others. "He that would be great among you," said Christ, "let him serve." He that would be happy, let him remember that there is but one way - "it is more blessed, it is more happy, to give than to receive. #Quote by Henry Drummond
Serving quotes by Rich Bimler
#6. Studies show that adults who ask younger people to join them in volunteer ministries become significant mentors and friends to these young servants ... a great way to serve not only those you are serving but young people, too. #Quote by Rich Bimler
Serving quotes by George R R Martin
#7. Serving men cleared away the swan, hardly touched. Cersei beckoned for the sweets. "I hope you like blackberry tarts."
"I love all sorts of tarts."
"Oh, I've know that for a long while. Do you know why Varys is so dangerous?"
"Are we playing riddles now? No."
"He doesn't have a cock."
"Neither do you." And don't you just hate that, Cersei?
""Perhaps, I'm dangerous too. You, on the other hand, are as big a fool as every other man. That worm between your legs does half your thinking. #Quote by George R R Martin
Serving quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#8. Be the witness of the turning of the human universe, as you yourself become the cause of that very turn. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar

Serving quotes by Russell Simmons
#11. I want to get involved in things that makes a difference in peoples lives and lifts them up. I don't want to be a part of anything that's not inspiring or helpful to the community that I'm serving. #Quote by Russell Simmons
Serving quotes by James M. Kouzes
#12. Leaders strengthen credibility by demonstrating that they are not in it for themselves, instead they have the interests of the institution, department, or team and its constituents at heart. Being a servant may not be what many leaders had in mind when they chose to take responsibility for the vision and direction of their organization or team - but serving others is the most glorious and rewarding of all leadership tasks. #Quote by James M. Kouzes
Serving quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#13. Life is given for increase and multiplication of the glory of God #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Serving quotes by Irvin D. Yalom
#14. Dissect your motives deeper! You will find that no one has ever done anything wholly for others. All actions are self-directed, all service is self-serving, all love self-loving. #Quote by Irvin D. Yalom
Serving quotes by Tim Parks
#15. We have too much respect for the printed word, too little awareness of the power words hold over us. We allow worlds to be conjured up for us with very little concern for the implications. We overlook glaring incongruities. We are suckers for alliteration, assonance, and rhythm. We rejoice over stories, whether fiction or "documentary," whose outcomes are flagrantly manipulative, self-serving, or both. Usually both. #Quote by Tim Parks
Serving quotes by Zarin Mehta
#16. I would still like to own and run a restaurant serving Indian food with a good dollop of Parsi cooking - which you can't seem to get anywhere. #Quote by Zarin Mehta
Serving quotes by Vaclav Havel
#17. Genuine politics
even politics worthy of the name
the only politics I am willing to devote myself to
is simply a matter of serving those around us: serving the community and serving those who will come after us. Its deepest roots are moral because it is a responsibility expressed through action, to and for the whole. #Quote by Vaclav Havel
Serving quotes by Ron Chernow
#18. In his self-serving view of events, Lee believed that he had performed a prodigious feat, rescuing his overmatched army from danger and organizing an orderly retreat. "'The American troops would not stand the British bayonets," he insisted to Washington. "You damned poltroon," Washington rejoined, "you never tried them!" Always reluctant to resort to profanities, the chaste Washington cursed at Lee "till the leaves shook on the tree," recalled General Scott. "Charming! Delightful! Never have I enjoyed such swearing before or since. #Quote by Ron Chernow
Serving quotes by Gavin Edwards
#19. Every child starts out loving animals, identifying with them. But early on, adults start sending them contradictory messages. They'll give a kid a stuffed animal to hug and love and sleep with. But at the same time, they're serving them animals for dinner every night. It's crazy, if you think about it. But when you're young, you just accept what grown-ups tell you as the truth. #Quote by Gavin Edwards
Serving quotes by Joel Osteen
#20. When you give up yourself, that's when you will feel the true spirit of Christmas. And that's giving that's serving others and that's when you feel fulfilled. #Quote by Joel Osteen
Serving quotes by Suzie Abels
#21. Lead with your beautiful & equisite heart Dear Ones as it will lead you to the TREASURE that is YOU. #Quote by Suzie Abels
Serving quotes by Martyn Stanley
#22. Vexis listened, then shook her head, her eyes full of sorrow. 'YOU are the fool! You cannot rob people of their beliefs and expect them to just accept it. Even now, I mourn the death of Avanti every day. Even though I now know she was never real. The idea of Avanti was real. Serving Avanti gave me a purpose, I felt she was guiding and encouraging me. Now I have nothing, I am reduced to simply "making it up as I go along". I hate you Brael. I will never forgive you for what you did.'
Brael took a deep breath. 'You were always making it up as you went along. You just didn't know it. People need to take responsibility for their actions. There is one person guiding me, and that is me. I will live as long as I can and I will try to leave this world a better place for my presence. That is enough purpose for all. #Quote by Martyn Stanley
Serving quotes by Joe Abercrombie
#23. He is dead and I, the self serving coward that I am, still live. Life is not fair. There is no pattern. People die at random. Something everyone knows, but no one truly believes. They think that when it comes to them there will be a lesson, a meaning, a story worth telling. That death will come to them as a dread scholar, a fell knight, a terrible emperor.
Death is a bored clerk, with too many orders to fill. There is no reckoning. No profound moment. It creeps up on us from behind, and snatches us away while we shit. #Quote by Joe Abercrombie
Serving quotes by Seth Adam Smith
#24. If we have the power and the means, then we must help. #Quote by Seth Adam Smith
Serving quotes by Anushka Sharma
#26. Boys used to call me Soda in school days. Soda means 'serving officers daughters association.' I miss those days when I had a very protected life: one could get close and bond with other army people that they gradually would become your extended family. #Quote by Anushka Sharma
Serving quotes by Edwin Muir
#27. Kindness and courage can repair time's faults, And serving him breeds patience and courtesy In us, light sojourners and passing subjects. #Quote by Edwin Muir
Serving quotes by Leonardo Da Vinci
#28. O time, swift robber of all created things, how many kings, how many nations hast thou undone, and how many changes of states and of various events have happened since the wondrous forms of this fish perished here in this cavernous and winding recess. Now destroyed by time thou liest patiently in this confined space with bones stripped and bare; serving as a support and prop for the superimposed mountain. #Quote by Leonardo Da Vinci
Serving quotes by Belsebuub
#29. To live without love for others is to live in aridity, to be self-serving and fruitless. To live without understanding is to live without sense or purpose. To live without awareness is to live as the deaf, blind and dumb in a world of vibrant light and sound. #Quote by Belsebuub
Serving quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#30. Prayer is not about asking what you want, but what God wants. #Quote by Shannon L. Alder
Serving quotes by Chris Gabrieli
#31. Schools serving disadvantaged students need more time to help these students catch up and gain the core academic skills they will need to succeed in our economy and society. #Quote by Chris Gabrieli
Serving quotes by Ken Jennings
#32. One of the most significant barriers to progress is the lack of effective leadership. #Quote by Ken Jennings
Serving quotes by Wendell Berry
#33. But is work something we have a right to escape? And can we escape it with impunity? We are probably the first entire people ever to think so. All the ancient wisdom that has come down to us counsels otherwise. It tells us that work is necessary to us, as much a part of our condition as mortality; that good work is our salvation and our joy; that shoddy or dishonest or self-serving work is our curse and our doom. We have tried to escape the sweat and sorrow promised in Genesis
only to find that, in order to do so, we must forswear love and excellence, health and joy. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Serving quotes by Confucius
#34. If you don't know how to serve men, why worry about serving the gods? #Quote by Confucius
Serving quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#35. Pure generosity is when you help the ingrate. Every other form is self-serving. #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Serving quotes by Linda Bender
#36. Change comes from dedicated, ordinary people, in the trenches, serving a cause greater than self. #Quote by Linda Bender
Serving quotes by Neil T. Anderson
#37. We don't serve God to gain His acceptance; we are accepted so we serve God. We don't follow Him in order to be loved; we are loved so we follow Him. #Quote by Neil T. Anderson
Serving quotes by Hal Duncan
#38. Personally, I'd like to see the word genre taken out back and shot, a bullet in the back of its head, if it's going to be so overloaded with meanings it's just gibberish skewed to self-serving doublethink. #Quote by Hal Duncan
Serving quotes by Amit Pandey
#39. A punishment is not self-explanatory. It serves no purpose until the person serving it knows the real reason for being punished. #Quote by Amit Pandey
Serving quotes by Katherine Soh
#40. In its basic form, nursing can be seen as a duty, but beyond the incessant operational activities that lay the foundation of our daily work, the profession is all about grace. Helping people is a noble calling. It is a privilege to serve my fellow human beings. Fifteen years has seen many ups and downs at the workplace, but I have enjoyed serving the many patients who come into my care, and have prayed for the souls of those who were on the brink of death. #Quote by Katherine Soh
Serving quotes by Jeff Goins
#41. In the midst of your apprenticeship, perhaps while serving someone else's dream, you will make a discovery of your own. #Quote by Jeff Goins

Serving quotes by Emily Skrutskie
#46. You're at the top of the world - you're the most powerful thing on the sea when you're serving under her - but there's a cost. There's always a cost. #Quote by Emily Skrutskie
Serving quotes by Joshua
#47. But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD. #Quote by Joshua
Serving quotes by Alice Randall
#48. I'm greedy for a second serving of those words. I want a dessert of those words, a soup, a salad. I wanted to salt those words and snap them in like peanuts. #Quote by Alice Randall
Serving quotes by J. Michael Bishop
#49. Science now finds itself in paradoxical strife with society: admired but mistrusted; offering hope for the future but creating ambiguous choice; richly supported yet unable to fulfill all its promise; boasting remarkable advances but criticized for not serving more directly the goals of society. #Quote by J. Michael Bishop
Serving quotes by Rick Warren
#50. Faithful servants never retire. You can retire from your career, but you will never retire from serving God. #Quote by Rick Warren
Serving quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#51. The church is only the church when it exists for others. To make a start, it should give away all its property to those in need. The clergy must live solely on the free-will offerings of their congregations, or possibly engage in some secular calling. The church must share in the secular problems of ordinary human life, not dominating, but helping and serving. It must tell men of every calling what it means to live in Christ, to exist for others. #Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Serving quotes by Chieko N. Okazaki
#52. We know that service is indispensable for bringing us close to the Savior and letting us feel his Spirit. In nothing do we resemble the Savior more than in serving others. So in nothing should we feel greater love and joy than in service. #Quote by Chieko N. Okazaki
Serving quotes by John Dos Passos
#53. there can be no reason to believe these officers of an established news organization serving newspapers all over the country failed to realize their responsibilities at a moment of supreme significance to the people of this country. #Quote by John Dos Passos
Serving quotes by Dorothy Norman
#54. Is it not the artist who - like our dreams - dissolves the pretenses that hide us from ourselves, disclosing both our self-serving fantasies and our unsuspected potentialities? #Quote by Dorothy Norman
Serving quotes by Rachel Naomi Remen
#55. Helping, fixing, and serving represent three different ways of seeing life. When you help, you see life as weak. when you fix, you see life as broken. When you serve, you see life as whole. Fixing and helping may be the work of the ego, and service the work of the soul. #Quote by Rachel Naomi Remen
Serving quotes by Dwight D. Eisenhower
#56. We are ready in short, to dedicate our strength to serving the needs, rather than the fears, of the world. #Quote by Dwight D. Eisenhower
Serving quotes by Harlan Ellison
#57. The real story of our times is seldom told in the horse-puckey-filled memoirs of dopey, self-serving presidents or generals, but in the outrageous, demented lives of guys like Lenny Bruce, Giordano Bruno, Scott Fitzgerald - and Paul Krassner. The burrs under society's saddle. The pains in the ass. #Quote by Harlan Ellison
Serving quotes by John Liu
#58. I have had the privilege of serving as city comptroller, and I lead 750 professionals in the office, have appointed eight deputy comptrollers ... no one has criticized my management of these 750 professionals. #Quote by John Liu
Serving quotes by Chris Pine
#59. I had a job at this French restaurant, and I hated it. I don't like serving; I don't like getting people ketchup. #Quote by Chris Pine
Serving quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#60. Work is a means to fulfill your heavenly mandate #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Serving quotes by Liane Moriarty
#61. And on she went about the room, serving food and compliments, fixing every guest with that strange piercing gaze of hers, so that by the time she finished and was ready to do her demonstration, everyone obediently swung their knees in her direction, their faces attentive, ready to be sold Tupperware, as if a firm but fair teacher had taken control of a rowdy classroom. #Quote by Liane Moriarty
Serving quotes by Marian Keyes
#62. Besides, I'd seen a really nice pair of shoes yesterday in the mall and I wanted them for my own. I can't describe the feeling of immediate familiarity that rushed between us. The moment I clapped eyes on them I felt like I already owned them. I could only suppose that we were together in a former life. That they were my shoes when I was a serving maid in medieval Britain or when I was a princess in ancient Egypt. Or perhaps they were the princess and I was the shoes. Who's to know? Either way I knew that we were meant to be together. #Quote by Marian Keyes
Serving quotes by Matthew Henry
#63. A man that is endued with the powers of reason, by which he is capable of knowing, serving, glorifying, and enjoying his Maker, and yet lives without God in the world, is certainly the most despicable and the most miserable animal under the sun. #Quote by Matthew Henry
Serving quotes by C.S. Pacat
#64. Fencing is different to sport like Tennis or Volleyball. In those sport, if scores are tied before the final point, it's called "Deuce". Which means "Two" because a player must be two points ahead to win... to compensate for the advantage of serving. But in fencing, there is no Deuce. Because there's no advantage. Both fencers start off equally. Equal footing. Equal opportunity. What separates them is just skill and the psychology of the match. The difference between winning and losing is just one point #Quote by C.S. Pacat
Serving quotes by Cecile Richards
#65. And because of President Obama, more women than ever are serving in the Cabinet and on the Supreme Court. #Quote by Cecile Richards
Serving quotes by Alaska Angelini
#66. Marko was nothing more than a dealer, serving me false emotions with ecstasy-doused injections. Poison to my heart. Addiction for my soul. And I was eating it up with all the desperation of a junkie. #Quote by Alaska Angelini
Serving quotes by Ali Wong
#67. A reporter once asked me why I think progressive men who earn significantly less than their breadwinning wives still won't quit their jobs to take care of their children. Why do they still hold on to their careers, even if taking care of the children would make more financial sense because the cost of childcare is higher than their net salary?
I think I know the answer to that now, and it sucks. Women are not expected to live a life for themselves. When women dedicate their lives to children, it is deemed a worthy and respectable choice. When women dedicate themselves to a passion outside of the family that doesn't involve worshiping their husbands or taking care of their kids, they're seen as selfish, cold, or unfit mothers. But when a man spends hours grueling over a craft, profession, or project, he's admired and seen as a genius. And when a man finds a woman who worships him, who dedicates her life to serving him, he's lucky. But when a man dedicates himself to taking care of his children it's seen as a last resort. That it must be because he ran out of other options. That it's plan Z. That it's an indicator of his inability to provide for his family. Basically, that he's a fucking loser. I think it's one of the most important falsehoods we need to shatter when talking about women's rights. #Quote by Ali Wong
Serving quotes by Martin Gardner
#68. Politicians, real-estate agents, used-car salesmen, and advertising copy-writers are expected to stretch facts in self-serving directions, but scientists who falsify their results are regarded by their peers as committing an inexcusable crime. Yet the sad fact is that the history of science swarms with cases of outright fakery and instances of scientists who unconsciously distorted their work by seeing it through lenses of passionately held beliefs. #Quote by Martin Gardner
Serving quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#69. Use your powers! Go to the scene of the crime! See the people concerned! Leave no stone unturned! In all your career you have never had so great a chance of serving your country. #Quote by Arthur Conan Doyle
Serving quotes by Anna Maria Chavez
#70. Girl Scouts is a girl-serving organization, so our members are girls. #Quote by Anna Maria Chavez
Serving quotes by GE Paulus
#71. EYou reveal your character by what you do with what you have. #Quote by GE Paulus
Serving quotes by Ronald Reagan
#72. The one thing our Founding Fathers could not foresee - they were farmers, professional men, businessmen giving of their time and effort to an idea that became a country - was a nation governed by professional politicians who had an interest in getting re-elected. They probably envisioned a fellow serving a couple of hitches and then eagerly looking forward to getting back to the farm. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Serving quotes by Ani DiFranco
#73. We're led by denial like lambs to slaughter, serving empires of style and carbonated sugar water. #Quote by Ani DiFranco
Serving quotes by Francine Rivers
#74. I've done everything for the wrong reasons. All the good works people credit to me are nothing because I did them expecting God to repay me. I thought if I worked hard enough, God would have to give me what I wanted. The truth is I've never served the Lord at all. I was always serving myself. #Quote by Francine Rivers
Serving quotes by Laura Resnick
#75. Poor Superman is about a married man who, much to his own surprise, enters into a passionate love affair - with another man. The experimental theatre which hosted the play here is a small place, and we happened to wind up sitting in the front row. Practically on the stage. The actors were often within a few feet of us. So, during the big love scene, when the two male leads start passionately stroking and kissing each other's stark naked bodies... and doing this so close to me that I could have touched them both with only a little effort... I sat there in mute panic, thinking, "Please don't either of you fellows get an erection. Just don't. Should I look away? Should I close my eyes? Should I just keep watching as if I'm not obsessing about your genitals? Aren't you done kissing and touching yet? Because if this goes on any longer, one of you could have an involuntary reaction, if you get my drift! And I am a total stranger sitting within four damn feet of you, in case you hadn't NOTICED!"
Though my seat wasn't as dark as usual, the writing lesson was very memorable: Don't ever pull your reader out of the frame.
Bad research. Anachronistic writing. Self-serving polemics and lectures barely disguised as narrative. Incongruity and lack of continuity. Weak characterization, leaden pacing, lack of motivation, stiff dialogue, lazy plotting... There are a thousand ways for novelist to wind up naked onstage while an appalled audience obsesses about her exposed genitals at a #Quote by Laura Resnick
Serving quotes by Helen Roseveare
#76. There really is no cost, only the privilege of serving the King of Kings. #Quote by Helen Roseveare
Serving quotes by Jojo Moyes
#77. You know, you would never have let those breasts so close to me if I weren't in a wheelchair,' he murmured.
I looked back at him steadily. 'You would never have looked at my breasts if you hadn't been in a wheelchair.'
'What? Of course I would.'
'Nope. You would have been far too busy looking at the tall blonde girls with the endless legs and the big hair, the ones who can smell an expense account at forty paces. And anyway, I wouldn't have been here. I would have been serving the drinks over there. One of the invisibles.'
He blinked.
'Well? I'm right, aren't I?'
Will glanced over at the bar, then back at me. 'Yes. But in my defense, Clark, I was an arse. #Quote by Jojo Moyes
Serving quotes by Claire Thompson
#78. He wanted to share her grace and submissive charms with the people he'd come to regard as his family. And at the same time he wanted to possess her fully, to keep her in his bed at night, and by his side or on her knees in front of him when she wasn't serving the needs and pleasures of the household. #Quote by Claire Thompson
Serving quotes by Napoleon Hill
#79. It has always been my belief that a man should do his best, regardless of how much he receives for his services, or the number of people he may be serving or the class of people served. #Quote by Napoleon Hill
Serving quotes by Evangeline Lilly
#80. If I were to live in Africa, serving the poor, the number-one thing I'd miss wouldn't be running water or electricity - it would be style ... being able to get dressed up and feel beautiful. #Quote by Evangeline Lilly
Serving quotes by Nora Ephron
#81. But it doesn't begin to convey how stressful and time-consuming an endeavor it is to make egg rolls, nor does it begin to suggest how much tension a person can create in a household by serving egg rolls that take hours to make and are not nearly as good as Chinese takeout. #Quote by Nora Ephron
Serving quotes by Gail Simmons
#83. There's not a single chef I know of that does not think about the politics of the food they're serving. #Quote by Gail Simmons
Serving quotes by Amy Plum
#84. Over two hundred years," Jeanne said, finishing his sentence as she shoveled a mountain of scrambled eggs onto Ambrose's plate. Her gave her a ravishing smile, and said "Marry me, Jeanne" leaning over to kiss the hand holding the serving spoon. "In your dreams," she laughed... #Quote by Amy Plum
Serving quotes by Bangambiki Habyarimana
#85. People are not interested in serving, they are interested in enjoying power #Quote by Bangambiki Habyarimana
Serving quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#86. The world needs madness, a madness for justice, a madness for harmony, a madness for equality, a madness for humanitarian glory. If everyone had the madness for doing good, there wouldn't be any misery in the world. So, be mad, be furious, be rebellious towards every bit of misery, inequality and injustice in the world. Remember, every injustice anywhere in the world is your business, every misery anywhere in the world is your business, every segregation anywhere in the world is your business. Human condition anywhere in the world is your business. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Serving quotes by Tobin Heath
#87. Whenever you're working towards something greater than yourself, it's almost a selflessness that the Lord delights in when you're serving your teammate or your friend or your sister in Christ. #Quote by Tobin Heath
Serving quotes by Richard Hell
#88. The problem with an autobiography is that all these extra factors make it difficult. You don't want to hurt people's feelings. You don't know how much you can trust your memory. You don't want it to be self-serving. And you have all these issues about how to present yourself. All these factors make it harder to do than a novel. #Quote by Richard Hell
Serving quotes by Martin Luther
#89. What is it to serve God and to do His will? Nothing else than to show mercy to our neighbor. For it is our own neighbor who needs our service; God in heaven needs it not. #Quote by Martin Luther
Serving quotes by Jeremy Camp
#90. I struggled with insecurity because I was trying to find my security in things. But when I began serving God with all my heart, my security was in Him. #Quote by Jeremy Camp
Serving quotes by Sunday Adelaja

Serving quotes by Thomas Sowell
#93. The media are less a window on reality, than a stage on which officials and journalists perform self-scripted, self-serving fictions. #Quote by Thomas Sowell
Serving quotes by Thomas Fuller
#94. Serving one's own passions is the greatest slavery. #Quote by Thomas Fuller
Serving quotes by Richard Krajicek
#95. I was serving good but was returning especially well, which was a weakness in my game. So not only was I serving well, but I was also breaking these other guys, and they felt the pressure. #Quote by Richard Krajicek
Serving quotes by L. Neil Smith
#96. [T]ry not to be too angry or disappointed with your fellow Americans. Most of them don't care about politics as much as the majority of my readers, and the education they have received about it from the government's public school system is nothing more than a septic tank full of warmed-over self-serving statist lies and leftist propaganda. #Quote by L. Neil Smith
Serving quotes by Dillon Burroughs
#97. Let us live not only to serve God ourselves; let us live to help our children and their children live for God. #Quote by Dillon Burroughs
Serving quotes by Frans De Waal
#98. We need to separate the process of evolution - which is, indeed, a self-serving process - and the actual motivations of animals. #Quote by Frans De Waal
Serving quotes by George W. Bush
#99. A good marriage is really good after serving together in Washington, D.C. #Quote by George W. Bush
Serving quotes by Rick Warren
#100. The only way you can serve God is by serving other people. #Quote by Rick Warren
Serving quotes by Jason Reza Jorjani
#101. So called "historians" whose research amasses detailed facts have their proper place in serving the genuine historian who is a masterful artist capable of crafting such a narrative of the past with a view to inspiring vigorous action in the present, action that is above all directed towards a certain vision of the future. #Quote by Jason Reza Jorjani
Serving quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#102. If I only let God do for me what I do for me, I have made God me. And if I have made God me, I don't have God or me. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Serving quotes by Mario Batali
#103. Although the skills aren't hard to learn, finding the happiness and finding the satisfaction and finding fulfillment in continuously serving somebody else something good to eat, is what makes a really good restaurant. #Quote by Mario Batali
Serving quotes by John Niven
#104. If pushed to say what I like about Elizabeth, who, as I'm sure most of you know, overtook Queen Victoria this week to become our longest-serving monarch, it would be her uncomplaining, getting-on-with-it ethic. #Quote by John Niven
Serving quotes by David A. Bednar
#105. With faith ... we must walk to the edge of the light and into the darkness. As we so walk I testify and promise that the light will move. When I was your age and wondering some of the exact same things that you are now wondering, I never would have imagined that someday [we] would be at Ricks College serving as we are ... I know the light moves as we walk in faith to the edge of the light. #Quote by David A. Bednar
Serving quotes by Laozi
#106. When leading people and serving Heaven, nothing exceeds moderation. #Quote by Laozi
Serving quotes by Lady Gaga
#108. I talk about myself in the third person all the time. I don't live my life in the way someone like you does. I live my life completely serving only my work and my fans. #Quote by Lady Gaga
Serving quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#109. While you are serving someone else, God is working out your future #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Serving quotes by Max Anders
#110. Those who serve God in vocational ministry must learn to trust Him for their daily needs before they can encourage others to do so. #Quote by Max Anders
Serving quotes by Marc Trestman
#111. Football became my obvious metaphor as it does for many, and I began to equate this as being 'halftime' in my life. As I reflected on my professional life I realized how much time I had spent trying to make first downs and score touchdowns. My focus had now changed into trying to be more about people and serving others. #Quote by Marc Trestman
Serving quotes by Winfield Scott Hancock
#112. We are serving no one man, we are serving our country. #Quote by Winfield Scott Hancock
Serving quotes by Willa Cather
#113. But she still had that something which fires the imagination, could still stop one's breath for a moment by a look or gesture that somehow revealed the meaning in common things. She had only to stand in the orchard, to put her hand on a little crab tree and look up at the apples, to make you feel the goodness of planting and tending and harvesting at last. All the strong things of her heart came out in her body, that had been so tireless in serving generous emotions. It was no wonder that her sons stood tall and straight. She was a rich mine of life, like the founders of early races. #Quote by Willa Cather
Serving quotes by Frank Pavone
#114. The People of God have to elect public servants who know the difference between serving the public and killing the public, and that those who can't tell the difference don't belong in public office. #Quote by Frank Pavone
Serving quotes by Chuck Palahniuk

Serving quotes by William H Gass
#117. If you want to think about something really funny, kiddo, consider the fact that our favorite modern bad guys became villains by serving as heroes first
to millions. It is now a necessary apprenticeship. #Quote by William H Gass
Serving quotes by Kellen Roggenbuck
#118. As Christians we are called to make disciples of all the nations, meeting them where they are and serving them in ways that are relevant and meaningful. That is the challenge: as the church, to remain relevant and meaningful, in efforts to reach all people where they are in a way they need. #Quote by Kellen Roggenbuck
Serving quotes by Marissa Jaret Winokur
#119. The truth is if you can eat just a serving size, you can eat anything. But we all know how those harmless treats can call out your name all night long, and rationalizing in the middle of the night is very easy. #Quote by Marissa Jaret Winokur
Serving quotes by Patrick Lencioni
#120. Human beings need to be needed, and they need to be reminded of this pretty much every day. They need to know that they are helping others, not merely serving themselves. #Quote by Patrick Lencioni
Serving quotes by Moby
#121. I'm sorry, I don't mean to judge, but I've read the gospels quite a few times, and it seems pretty clear that 'Christian values' are: 1-humility, 2-non-judgementalism, 3-caring for the poor, 4-compassion, 5-love, and 6-serving God. #Quote by Moby
Serving quotes by Bell Hooks
#122. We don't hear much from revolutionary feminists who are white because they're not serving the bourgeois agenda of the status quo. #Quote by Bell Hooks
Serving quotes by Ellen Hopkins
#123. The judge had a God complex. -
He started an avalanche. -
It swallowed her whole. -
Could I have saved her. -
I was to young, clueless. -
He was a self serving bastard. -
He played the prodigal trump card.
What the hell gave him that right? -
Contrite was not his style. -
How could she love him so much? -
Things would never be the same. - #Quote by Ellen Hopkins
Serving quotes by Joel Miller
#124. Every day Big Government heaps demands and restrictions upon businesses that sink some enterprises, cause others to direct resources away from serving customers and instead toward jumping through hoops of lawyers and regulators, and prevent other operations from ever getting off the ground. #Quote by Joel Miller
Serving quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#125. Morality is neither rational nor absolute nor natural. World has known many moral systems, each of which advances claims universality; all moral systems are therefore particular, serving a specific purpose for their propagators or creators, and enforcing a certain regime that disciplines human beings for social life by narrowing our perspectives and limiting our horizons. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Serving quotes by Sepp Blatter
#126. The source of wealth is from individuals with little or no history of interest in the game, who have happened upon football as a means of serving some hidden agenda. #Quote by Sepp Blatter

Serving quotes by Joanna Walsh
#128. Theories:
*During the off-months for the visitors, which are the on-months for the oysters, are the oysters packed in ice or tinned, and shipped to Paris?

*During the off-months for the visitors, which are the on-months for the oysters, do the serving staff shuck shells?
Or
*During the off-months for the visitors, which are the on-months for the oysters, are the restaurant, and the oysters, abandoned, and the staff laid off? #Quote by Joanna Walsh
Serving quotes by Robert Wright
#129. The idea here is that childhood lies are not just a phase of harmless delinquency we pass smoothly through, but the first in a series of test runs for self-serving dishonesty. Through positive reinforcement (for undetected and fruitful lies) and negative reinforcement (for lies that peers uncover, or through the reprimand of kin) we learn what we can and can't get away with, and what our kin do and don't consider judicious deceit. #Quote by Robert Wright
Serving quotes by Janice Galloway
#130. That was probably how religion worked. The triumph of loneliness over intelligence. And why not? Why shouldn't religion be exactly the same as everything else? Faith, hope and charity: as relevant as serving suggestions. #Quote by Janice Galloway
Serving quotes by J.C. Reed
#131. In the harsh veracity of the real world, he was rich, successful, and one of the most desired bachelors in New York - and I was, well, me. A world I hoped wouldn't tear us apart by pointing out just how different our lives were.
"You're probably eager to get home," Jett whispered in my ear so the flight attendant serving coffee wouldn't hear us, "but will you stay with me one more night? I'm not quite ready to let this go. #Quote by J.C. Reed
Serving quotes by Tedd Tripp
#132. We give them material things and take delight in their delight in possessions. Then we hope that somewhere down the line they will see that a life worth living is found only in knowing and serving God. #Quote by Tedd Tripp
Serving quotes by Joyce Meyer
#133. I had received Christ as my savior when I was a child, but I didn't know anything. I didn't have any knowledge. I didn't go to church. And I had a lot of problems, and I needed somebody to kind of help me along. And I think sometimes even people who want to serve God, if they have got so many problems that they don't think right and they don't act right and they don't behave right, they almost need somebody to take them by the hand and help lead them through the early years. And that's really what discipleship is. It's helping people. #Quote by Joyce Meyer
Serving quotes by Fred Rodell
#134. The reason the lawyers lead the line to the guillotine or the firing squad is that, while law is supposed to be a device to serve society, a civilized way of helping the wheels go round without too much friction, it is pretty hard to find a group less concerned with serving society and more concerned with serving themselves than the lawyers. #Quote by Fred Rodell
Serving quotes by Rita Golden Gelman
#135. The typical backpacker is unmarried, educated, but not yet on the career track. Among the backpackers, there are always a lot of young Europeans who work for a year or two at home, save their money, then travel until it runs out. Canadians and Australians are also backpack travelers; so are Israelis, taking a year off after serving in the army, and New Zealanders on their great "OE," overseas experience. There are Americans as well; but the Americans are usually on a tighter schedule, and I find them less friendly, at least to me. #Quote by Rita Golden Gelman

#136. Living for your purposes warrants eternal blessings #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Serving quotes by Rumi
#137. From "Wetness and Water"
How does a part of the world leave the world?
How can wetness leave water?
Do not try to put out a fire
by throwing on more fire.
Do not wash a wound with blood.
No matter how fast you run,
your shadow more than keeps up.
Sometimes it's in front.
Only full, overhead sun
diminishes your shadow.
But that shadow has been serving you.
What hurts you blesses you.
Darkness is your candle.
Your boundaries are your quest. #Quote by Rumi
Serving quotes by Charles W. Pickering
#138. In addition to fines, violators of decency standards could be required to air public service announcements serving educational and informational needs of children. #Quote by Charles W. Pickering
Serving quotes by Gerald R. Ford
#139. Even though this is late in an election year, there is no way we can go forward except together and no way anybody can win except by serving the people's urgent needs. We cannot stand still or slip backwards. We must go forward now together. #Quote by Gerald R. Ford
Serving quotes by Jack London
#140. Spoke of the professional men and the artists as villeins. What else are they? One and all, the professors, the preachers, and the editors, hold their jobs by serving the Plutocracy, and their service consists of propagating only such ideas as are either harmless to or commendatory of the Plutocracy. Whenever they propagate ideas that menace the Plutocracy, they lose their jobs, in which case, if they have not provided for the rainy day, they descend into the proletariat and either perish or become working-class agitators. And don't forget that it is the press, the pulpit, and the university that mould public opinion, set the thought-pace of the nation. As for the artists, they merely pander to the little less than ignoble tastes of the Plutocracy. But #Quote by Jack London

Serving quotes by Erich Fromm
#143. Respect, thus, implies the absence of exploitation. I want the loved person to grow and unfold for his own sake, and in his own ways, and not for the purpose of serving me. If I love the other person, I feel one with him or her, but with him as he is, not as I need him to be as an object for my use. It is clear that respect is possible only if I have achieved independence; if I can stand and walk without needing crutches, without #Quote by Erich Fromm
Serving quotes by Angie Karan
#144. Every time we reach in to the cave of our loving heart and deliver an act of kindness, and touch another, we are truly sending a beautiful arrow of our love from our heart straight in to God's heart. When we purely serve another - whether it's someone hurting and confused, the cranky person at work, or the slightly strange elderly woman we help up the elevator - we are actually serving the beauty of God who lives within that person. In essence, we are magnificently surrendering to a higher and divine Love. My dear friends, lets be those beautiful instruments of that divine love. Lets open our wings and deliver small acts of everyday kindness, no matter how big or small. Remember, this divine love; is never wasted. It only flows out and becomes a great big ocean of oneness love for all #Quote by Angie Karan
Serving quotes by Thomas Woods
#145. The power to regulate the value of money does not involve a power to dilute the value of money by inflation, an absurd and self-serving rendering. #Quote by Thomas Woods
Serving quotes by Thomas A Kempis
#146. Every man naturally desires knowledge; but what good is knowledge without fear of God? Indeed a humble rustic who serves God is better than a proud intellectual who neglects his soul to study the course of the stars. #Quote by Thomas A Kempis
Serving quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#147. Stale godliness is ungodliness. Let our religion be as warm, and constant, and natural as the flow of the blood in our veins. A living God must be served in a living way. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Serving quotes by Jackie Speier

Serving quotes by Wayne Dyer
#149. The greatest joy comes from giving and serving, so replace your habit of focusing exclusively on yourself and what's in it for you. When you make the shift to supporting others in your life, without expecting anything in return, you'll think less about what you want and find comfort and joy in the act of giving and serving. #Quote by Wayne Dyer
Serving quotes by Eric Liu
#150. The "etiquette of freedom," to use poet Gary Snyder's phrase. It encompasses small acts like teaching your children to be honest in their dealings with others. It includes serving on community councils and as soccer coaches. It means leaving a place in better shape than you found it. It means helping others during hard times and being able to ask for help. It means resisting the temptation to call a problem someone else's. #Quote by Eric Liu
Serving quotes by Matt Perman
#151. When we practice good delegation - stewardship delegation - we are not simply enabling ourselves to get more done. We are serving others and building them up according to God's own purposes for his people. #Quote by Matt Perman
Serving quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#152. All conversation had stopped. Following the guests' collective gazes, Cam saw something - a lizard? - wriggling and slithering its way past sauceboats and salt cellars. Without hesitation he reached out and captured the small creature, cupping it in closed hands. The lizard squirmed furiously in the space between his closed palms.
"I've got it," he said mildly.
The vicar's wife half fainted, slumping back in her chair with a low moan.
"Don't hurt him!" Beatrix Hathaway called out anxiously. "He's a family pet!"
The assembled guests glanced from Cam's closed hands to the Hathaway girl's apologetic face.
"A pet?… What a relief," Lady Westcliff said calmly, staring down the length of the table at her husband's blank countenance. "I thought it was some new English delicacy we were serving."
A swift wash of color darkened Westcliff's face, and he looked away from her with fierce concentration. To anyone who knew him well, it was obvious he was struggling not to laugh. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Serving quotes by Kaitlin B. Curtice
#154. After moving to Georgia and serving at this church as the interim worship leader, I was suddenly struck with the reality that if I fight the effects of assimilation in my life, if I speak from my Potawatomi self instead of the whiteness I've been trained and taught to live through, the church will increasingly see me as a threat. They will get uncomfortable, and they will question my faith, because it doesn't look like the faith shaped by the forefathers of the church. In essence, the church wants what is white in me, but not what is Native in me. #Quote by Kaitlin B. Curtice

Serving quotes by Ari Berk
#158. His own past kept flying up around him like moths; old fears back again, the ghosts' problems only serving to remind him of his own. Even the little anxieties that nipped at his heels as a boy were back now as sharp-toothed dogs, following him, barking loudly, drawing more and more attention to themselves. Now, as he looked for his dad, Silas felt like he had as a boy: left behind, alone, forgotten. And he could see, now, his personal feelings made his encounters with the dead and his travels through their lands dangerous and filled with the possibility of entrapment. #Quote by Ari Berk
Serving quotes by Marie Rutkoski
#159. A slave in serving dress presented Kestrel with wine, then led the way to an open solarium with a low fountain and hothouse flowers. Musicians played discreetly behind an ebony screen as guests greeted each other, some chatting where they stood, others retreating for quiet conversations on the stone benches lining the fountain.
Kestrel turned to face Arin.
His eyes were dazed with anger, his hands clenched.
"Arin," she began, concerned, but his gaze flicked away and settled on some point across the room. "Your friends are here," he said.
She followed his line of sight to see Jess and Ronan laughing at something Benix had said.
"Dismiss me," Arin said.
"What?" she said, though in fact he was the only escort in the room. The slaves who threaded through the crowd were servers, and Irex's.
"Join your friends. I don't want to stay here anymore. Send me to the kitchens."
She took a breath, then nodded. He spun on his heel and was gone.
She felt instantly alone. She hadn't expected this. But when she asked herself what she had expected, she had a foolish image of her and Arin sitting on a bench together.
Kestrel looked up at the glass roof, a pyramid of purple sky. She saw the sharp cut of the moon, and remembered Enai saying that it was best to recognize the things one cannot change.
She crossed the room to greet her friends. #Quote by Marie Rutkoski
Serving quotes by Emily Maroutian
#160. Let go of what has served its purpose.

You will know if you are completely done with something when you give it up and you feel freedom instead of loss. This is when you will know that it is done serving its purpose in your life. The value has run out, the lesson has finished, and it's time to move on. #Quote by Emily Maroutian

Serving quotes by Warren Farrell
#163. The single biggest barrier to getting men to look within is that what any other group would call powerlessness, men have been taught to call power. We don't call "male-killing" sexism; we call it "glory." We don't call the one million men who were killed or maimed in one battle in World War I (the Battle of the Somme) a holocaust, we call it "serving the country." We don't call those who selected only men to die "murderers." We call them "voters." Our slogan for women is "A Woman's Body, A Woman's Choice"; our slogan for men is "A Man's Gotta Do What a Man's Gotta Do. #Quote by Warren Farrell
Serving quotes by Kenny Johnson

Serving quotes by Alberto Manguel

Serving quotes by Pierre-Joseph Proudhon
#170. For some time they talked of reformation; those who apparently desired it most favoring it only for their own profit, and the people who were to be the gainers expecting little and saying nothing. For a long time these poor people, either from distrust, incredulity, or despair, hesitated to ask for their rights: it is said that the habit of serving had taken the courage away from those old communes, which in the middle ages were so bold. #Quote by Pierre-Joseph Proudhon
Serving quotes by Dave Rudbarg
#171. A long held belief based on a perceived reality that is rooted in a diminishing view of yourself or others probably is not serving you.
Today is a good day to let go of one of them.
Today is a great day to let go of one of them-if it's a secret grudge you've been harboring
for years.
Particularly if that person is YOU. #Quote by Dave Rudbarg
Serving quotes by Eve Jones
#172. Perhaps all miracles are just the immediate response of objective material reality to a pure, heart-felt thought of not wanting to inconvenience anyone. Maybe the Universe is serving the highest spiritual thought. Maybe the logic of magic is love. #Quote by Eve Jones
Serving quotes by Anne Manne
#173. The whole idea of "leaners" and "lifters" is the central teaching of the right wing ideologue, Ayn Rand, who penned books like The Virtue of Selfishness. It's a self-serving crock. Rand found out the hard way. After a lifetime proselytising on behalf of the "producers" and denouncing anyone needing government assistance as "parasites," when Rand became old and sick, she discovered that even a bestselling author could not afford health care in the neoliberal US. She availed herself of Medicare and ended her life on what she had despised – social security.

Serving quotes by Katie Hafner
#174. I usually enjoy setting up a new kitchen, but this has become a joyless and highly charged task. My mother and I each have our own set of kitchen boxes, which means that if there are two cheese graters between us, only one will make it into a cupboard. The other will be put back in a box or given to Goodwill.

Each such little decision has the weight of a Middle East negotiation. While her kitchenware is serviceable, I'm a sucker for the high end: All-Clad saucepans and Emile Henry pie dishes. Before long, I'm shaking my head at pretty much everything my mother removes from her San Diego boxes. She takes each rejected item as a personal slight – which in fact it is. I begrudge her even her lightweight bowls, which she can lift easily with her injured hand.

Here she is, a fragile old woman barely able to bend down as she peers into a low cupboard, looking for a place where she can share life with her grown daughter. At such a sight my heart should be big, but it's small, so small that when I see her start stuffing her serving spoons into the same drawer as my own sturdy pieces, lovingly accumulated over the years, it makes me crazy. Suddenly I'm acting out decades of unvoiced anger about my mother's parenting, which seems to be materializing in the form of her makeshift collection of kitchenware being unpacked into my drawers.

When I became a mother myself, I developed a self-righteous sense of superiority to my mother: I was better than my m #Quote by Katie Hafner
Serving quotes by Mark Lewis Taylor
#175. Time's agency becomes most vicious when it is routinized for the practical effect of control. The routinizaton of time is a transformation cultivated by prison authorities and designed to make every day like every other. In this experience, paradoxically, time acts even to deaden one's sense of time. All the more true is this among the 80,000, likely more,[52] who are serving time in solitary confinement.

Serving quotes by Marsha Blackburn

Serving quotes by J.D. Vance
#177. To this day, being able to "take advantage" of someone is the measure in my mind of having a parent. For me and Lindsay, the fear of imposing stalked our minds, infecting even the food we ate. We recognized instinctively that many of the people we depended on weren't supposed to play that role in our lives, so much so that it was one of the first things Lindsay thought of when she learned of Papaw's death. We were conditioned to feel that we couldn't really depend on people - that, even as children, asking someone for a meal or for help with a broken-down automobile was a luxury that we shouldn't indulge in too much lest we fully tap the reservoir of goodwill serving as a safety valve in our lives. #Quote by J.D.

Serving quotes by Beto O'Rourke
#180. The freedoms that we have were purchased not just by those in uniform - and they definitely were - but also by those who took their lives into their hands, riding those Greyhound buses - the Freedom Riders, in the deep south, in the 1960s, who knew full well that they would be arrested, and they were, serving time, in the Mississippi State Penitentiary. Rosa Parks, getting from the back of the bus to the front of the bus. Peaceful, nonviolent protest. #Quote by Beto O'Rourke

I will suggest that the great aim of our education is to bring out of the child who comes into our hands every faculty that he brings with him, and then to try to win that child to turn all his abilities, his powers, his capacities, to the helping and serving of the community which is a part. #Quote by Annie Besant
Serving quotes by Wilma Mankiller

Serving quotes by Jeffrey Tucker
#186. The problems in every country are the same. Bureaucracy is strangling innovation. Overgrown political sectors are sucking away resources that could otherwise lead to growth. Regulations and taxes are punishing innovation. Public sector services are breaking down and no longer serving people's needs. Laws and prevailing legislation control a world that no longer exists. People who go into politics to change the system end up getting co-opted by it. Workers feel trapped and fear a lack out options outside the status quo. In every case, it comes down to the great evil of our time and all times: government itself. There is no place on earth in which more liberty and less or no government would not be welcome and bring about real progress. #Quote by Jeffrey Tucker
Serving quotes by Hans-Hermann Hoppe
#187. The state must answer these questions, too, but whatever it does, it does it without being subject to the profit-and-loss criterion. Hence, its action is arbitrary and necessarily involves countless wasteful misallocations from the consumer's viewpoint. Independent to a large degree of consumer wants, the state-employed security producers instead do what they like. They hang around instead of doing anything, and if they do work they prefer doing what is easiest or work where they can wield power rather than serving consumers. Police officers drive around a lot, hassle petty traffic violators, spend huge amounts of money investigating victimless crimes that many people (i.e., nonparticipants) do not like but that few would be willing to spend their money on to fight, as they are not immediately affected by them. Yet with respect to what consumers want most urgently - the prevention of hardcore crime (i.e., crimes with victims), the apprehension and effective punishment of hard-core criminals, the recovery of loot, and the securement of compensation of victims of crimes from the aggressors - the police are notoriously inefficient, in spite of ever higher budget allocations. #Quote by Hans-Hermann Hoppe

Serving quotes by John M. Perkins
#189. Right before Jesus went to the cross, He prayed that all believers, past, present, and future "may be one, as You, Father are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me" (John 17:21 NKJV). This was Jesus's prayer for us all, yet more often than not, I fear we have not lived up to it. Instead, we fight for our own way, for our selfish desires, for our right to be superior. We build churches centered on our own cultural ideas of God, rather than on seeking to bring us back to Him. And then we fight with other churches and religions about who is serving their personal culture god the best.

Come dream with me. Dream of a fight for something bigger, something more important and worthwhile. We need to fight for justice and peace, for the walls between us to come crashing down. #Quote by John M. Perkins

#192. Thinking about anything interesting?"

I shrug and force my brain to stay with safer topics. "I didn't know you could feed a baby Thai food."

Babydoll shovels a handful of shredded food into her mouth and swings her legs happily. She talks with her mouth full and half falls out. "Ah-da-da-da-da-da." There's a noodle in her hair, and Kristin reaches out to pull it free.

Geoff scoops some coconut rice onto his plate and tops it with a third serving of beef. "What do you think they feed babies in Thailand?"

I aim a chopstick in his direction. "Point."

#193. So I am led to one or two choices! Can I write? Will I write if I practice enough? How much should I sacrifice to writing anyway, before I find out if I'm any good? Above all, CAN A SELFISH, EGOCENTRIC, JEALOUS, AND UNIMAGINATIVE FEMALE WRITE A DAMN THING WORTHWHILE? Should I sublimate (my how we throw words around!) my selfishness in serving other people- through social or other such work? Would I then become more sensitive to other people and their problems? Would I be able to write honestly? Then of other beings besides a tall, introspective adolescent girl? I must be in contact with a wide variety of lives if I am not to become submerged in the routine of my own economic strata and class. #Quote by Sylvia Plath
Serving quotes by John A. Lejeune
#194. Be kindly and just in your dealings with your men. Never play favorites. Make them feel that justice tempered with mercy may always be counted on. This does not mean a slackening of discipline. Obedience to orders and regulations must always be insisted upon, and good conduct on the part of the men exacted. Especially should this be done with reference to civilian inhabitants of foreign countries in which Marines are serving. #Quote by John A. Lejeune
Serving quotes by Stephen Batchelor
#195. I was more concerned with refining my sense of the sheer mysteriousness of life so that it infused each moment of my waking existence, thereby serving as a ground from which to respond more openly and vitally to whatever occurred. #Quote by Stephen Batchelor

Serving quotes by Dan Jones
#198. Early in 1203 John sent instructions to the royal servant Hubert de Burgh, who was serving as Arthur's jailer, demanding that he should blind and castrate his prisoner. Fortunately for Arthur, de Burgh felt a pang of conscience and could not carry out the grisly sentence on the sixteen-year-old, who pleaded for pity. #Quote by Dan Jones
Serving quotes by Alexander Solschenizyn
#199. Oh, "what an intelligent, farsighted humane administration from top to bottom," as Supreme Court Judge Leibowitz of New York State wrote in Life magazine, after having visited Gulag. "In serving out his term of punishment the prisoner retains a feeling of dignity." That is what he comprehended and saw.

Oh, fortunate New York State, to have such a perspicacious jackass for a judge!

And oh, you well-fed, devil-may-care, nearsighted, irresponsible foreigners with your notebooks and your ball-point pens - beginning with those correspondents who back in Kem asked the zeks questions in the presence of the camp chiefs - how much you have harmed us in your vain passion to shine with understanding in areas where you did not grasp a lousy thing! #Quote by Alexander Solschenizyn
Serving quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#200. We can only hope to live a meaningful life by serving as earnest witnesses to life's tragic beauty. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
