The Life Of David Gale quotes by The Life Of David Gale
#1. Bitsey, we spend our whole lives trying to stop death; eating, inventing, loving, praying, fighting, killing. But what do we really know about death?
Just that nobody comes back.
But there comes a point in life - a moment - when your mind outlives its desires, its obsessions... when your habits survive your dreams, and when your losses....
Maybe death is a gift.
You wonder. #Quote by The Life Of David Gale
The Life Of David Gale quotes by David Stuckler
#2. What are the health effects of the choice between austerity and stimulus? Today there is a vast natural experiment being conducted on the body economic. It is similar to the policy experiments that occurred in the Great Depression, the post-communist crisis in eastern Europe, and the East Asian Financial Crisis. As in those prior trials, health statistics from the Great Recession reveal the deadly price of austerity - a price that can be calculated not just in the ticks to economic growth rates, but in the number of years of life lost and avoidable deaths.

Had the austerity experiments been governed by the same rigorous standards as clinical trials, they would have been discontinued long ago by a board of medical ethics. The side effects of the austerity treatment have been severe and often deadly. The benefits of the treatment have failed to materialize. Instead of austerity, we should enact evidence-based policies to protect health during hard times. Social protection saves lives. If administered correctly, these programs don't bust the budget, but - as we have shown throughout this book - they boost economic growth and improve public health.

Austerity's advocates have ignored evidence of the health and economic consequences of their recommendations. They ignore it even though - as with the International Monetary Fund - the evidence often comes from their own data. Austerity's proponents, such as British Prime Minister David Cameron, continue to write #Quote by David Stuckler
The Life Of David Gale quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#3. There were times when I could not afford to sacrifice the bloom of the present moment to any work, whether of the head or hands. I love a broad margin to my life. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
The Life Of David Gale quotes by David Hare
#4. Now it turns out that a few broadsheet film critics in Britain do indeed belong to a category of people who would have resisted Hitler when he came to power. So the great shame is, clearly film critics should have been running Austria at the time, because Hitler would have represented no problem to them at all. [The Guardian's] Peter Bradshaw would have known exactly what to do, and he would not have been remotely fallible to any Nazi who threatened his life. No, he would have died in heroic acts of individual resistance. So it's a privilege to live among people who enjoy such moral certainty. #Quote by David Hare
The Life Of David Gale quotes by David Hurn
#5. In previous ages the word 'art' was used to cover all forms of human skill. The Greeks believed that these skills were given by the gods to man for the purpose of improving the condition of life. In a real sense, photography has fulfilled the Greek ideal of art; it should not only improve the photographer, but also improve the world. #Quote by David Hurn
The Life Of David Gale quotes by David Benatar
#6. In a sentence: Life is bad, but so is death. Of course, life is not bad in every way. Neither is death bad in every way. However, both life and death are, in crucial respects, awful. Together, they constitute an existential vise - the wretched grip that enforces our predicament. #Quote by David Benatar
The Life Of David Gale quotes by David G. McAfee
#7. For those who want to pray for me to "find God," please don't waste your prayers. If you really think God is listening to you, then please use those precious moments to ask God to care for the sick and dying, and leave me out of it. I'm happy without my faith and with living my life in the here and now. Besides, thousands before you have prayed for me to find God and it hasn't worked yet. Why would God value your request over theirs? #Quote by David G. McAfee
The Life Of David Gale quotes by David Lilienthal
#8. Within the next few years-a decade perhaps-we should be in a position to unlock new knowledge about life and matter so great that wholly new concepts of human life will follow in the wake of this new knowledge. #Quote by David Lilienthal
The Life Of David Gale quotes by David Whyte
#9. Anger is the deepest form of compassion, for another, for the world, for the self, for a life, for the body, for a family and for all our ideals, all vulnerable and all, possibly about to be hurt. Stripped of physical imprisonment and violent reaction, anger is the purest form of care, the internal living flame of anger always illuminates what we belong to, what we wish to protect and what we are willing to hazard ourselves for. #Quote by David Whyte
The Life Of David Gale quotes by David Mitchell
#10. Then the three of us hug, and if I could choose on moment of my life to sit inside of for the rest of eternity ... it'd be now, no question. #Quote by David Mitchell
The Life Of David Gale quotes by David Chipperfield
#11. Seeing architecture differently from the way you see the rest of life is a bit weird. I believe one should be consistent in all that one does, from the books you read to the way you bring up your children. Everything you do is connected. #Quote by David Chipperfield
The Life Of David Gale quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#12. We talk of civilizing the Indian, but that is not the name for his improvement. By the wary independence and aloofness of his dim forest life he preserves his intercourse with his native gods, and is admitted from time to time to a rare and peculiar society with Nature. He has glances of starry recognition to which our saloons are strangers. The steady illumination of his genius, dim only because distant, is like the faint but satisfying light of the stars compared with the dazzling but ineffectual and short-lived blaze of candles. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
The Life Of David Gale quotes by David Whyte
#13. Poetry is often the art of overhearing yourself say things you didn't know you knew. It is a learned skill to force yourself to articulate your life, your present world or your possibilities for the future. #Quote by David Whyte
The Life Of David Gale quotes by David Estes
#14. All I know is that my life feels like a giant April Fool's Joke most of the time. Either that or a mysterious box that has something different in it every time you open it. #Quote by David Estes
The Life Of David Gale quotes by David James Duncan
#15. There are many things worth telling that are not quite narrative. And eternity itself possesses no beginning, middle or end. Fossils, arrowheads, castle ruins, empty crosses: from the Parthenon to the Bo Tree to a grown man's or woman's old stuffed bear, what moves us about many objects is not what remains but what has vanished. There comes a time, thanks to rivers, when a few beautiful old teeth are all that remain of the two-hundred-foot spires of life we call trees. There comes a river, whose current is time, that does a similar sculpting in the mind. #Quote by David James Duncan
The Life Of David Gale quotes by Paul David Washer
#16. Most would sooner attend a conference on self-esteem and self-realization than listen to one sermon on sanctification, without which no one will see the Lord.15 Many would cross land and sea to find their best life now, but they would not walk across the street to attend a series of meetings on the infinite worth of Christ or the sufferings of Calvary! #Quote by Paul David Washer
The Life Of David Gale quotes by David Nicholls
#17. What was it, she wondered, this need to brandish his shiny new metropolitan life at her? As soon as she'd met him at the arrivals gate on his return from Thailand, lithe and brown and shaven-headed, she knew that there was no chance of a relationship between them. Too much had happened to him, too little had happened to her. Even so this would be the third girlfriend, lover, whatever, that she had met in the last nine months, Dexter presenting them up to her like a dog with a fat pigeon in his mouth. Was it some kind of some sick revenge for something? Because she got a better degree than him? Didn't he know what this was doing to her, sat at table nine with their groins jammed in each other's faces? #Quote by David Nicholls
The Life Of David Gale quotes by David Zindell
#18. I do not believe that we have finished evolving. And by that, I do not mean that we will continue to make ever more sophisticated machines and intelligent computers, even as we unlock our genetic code and use our biotechnologies to reshape the human form as we once bred new strains of cattle and sheep. We have placed much too great a faith in our technology. Although we will always reach out to new technologies, as our hands naturally do toward pebbles and shells by the seashore, the idea that the technologies of our civilized life have put an end to our biological evolution - that "Man" is a finished product - is almost certainly wrong.
It seems to be just the opposite. In the 10,000 years since our ancestors settled down to farm the land, in the few thousand years in which they built great civilizations, the pressures of this new way of life have caused human evolution to actually accelerate. The rate at which genes are being positively selected to engender in us new features and forms has increased as much as a hundredfold. Two genes linked to brain size are rapidly evolving. Perhaps others will change the way our brain interconnects with itself, thus changing the way we think, act, and feel.
What other natural forces work transformations deep inside us? Humanity keeps discovering whole new worlds. Without, in only five centuries, we have gone from thinking that the earth formed the center of the universe to gazing through our telescopes and identifying countless #Quote by David Zindell
The Life Of David Gale quotes by David H. Bennett
#19. The image of life forces diluted and diseased by contact with the intruders revealed a telling insecurity. How confident were these men in the power of their idealized country or in themselves as its protectors? Where was the tradition of resilience and absorbing strength that their florid rhetoric celebrated at other times? In the very metaphor of infection, the nativists uncovered their fears that "America" was but a fragile essence. Like latter-day "defenders" who saw other alien dangers in communism, they attributed enormous influence to the enemy. Their angry words betrayed the desperation of those who half fear the battle is already lost. #Quote by David H. Bennett
The Life Of David Gale quotes by David Ogilvy
#20. The secret of long life is double careers. One to about age sixty, then another for the next thirty years. #Quote by David Ogilvy
The Life Of David Gale quotes by David Fairchild
#21. After my first feeling of revulsion had passed, I spent three of the most entertaining and instructive weeks of my life studying the fascinating molds which appeared one by one on the slowly disintegrating mass of horse-dung. Microscopic molds are both very beautiful and absorbingly interesting. The rapid growth of their spores, the way they live on each other, the manner in which the different forms come and go, is so amazing and varied that I believe a man could spend his life and not exhaust the forms or problems contained in one plate of manure. #Quote by David Fairchild
The Life Of David Gale quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#22. It would be better if there were but one inhabitant to a square mile, as where I live. The value of a man is not in his skin, that we should touch him. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
The Life Of David Gale quotes by David Suzuki
#23. This is suicidal ... our home is the biosphere. That's a very thin layer of air, water and land where all life exists. It's fixed, it can't grow, and yet we cling to this idea that the economy can grow forever. And it must. Well, it can't. #Quote by David Suzuki
The Life Of David Gale quotes by David Berg
#24. Only you and I who love Jesus and have Him now before this life's death will be able to be among the special super-citizens of the Heavenly City, a special super-class of people! #Quote by David Berg
The Life Of David Gale quotes by David A. Adler
#25. My first biography was 'Our Golda: The Life of Golda Meir.' To research that book, I bought a 1905 set of encyclopedias. Those books told me what each of the places Golda Meir lived in were like when she lived there. #Quote by David A. Adler
The Life Of David Gale quotes by David Murphy
#26. My goal on Earth is not to win a World Series or be the best baseball player who ever lived. That simply is not up to me because I have to wait and see if it is part of the Lord's plan. My goal is to follow the Lord and what he wants me to do so that someday I may enter His kingdom and receive everlasting life. #Quote by David Murphy
The Life Of David Gale quotes by David Finkel
#27. It's a thin line between what we're calling acceptable and not acceptable. As a leader, you're supposed to know when not to cross it. But how do you know? Does the army teach us how to control our emotions? Does the army teach us how to deal with a friend bleeding out in front of you? No. #Quote by David Finkel
The Life Of David Gale quotes by David Whyte
#28. Solace is not meant to be an answer, but an invitation, through the door of pain and difficulty, to the depth of suffering and simultaneous beauty in the world that the strategic mind by itself cannot grasp nor make sense of. #Quote by David Whyte
The Life Of David Gale quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#29. At a certain season of our life we are accustomed to consider every spot as the possible site of a house. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
The Life Of David Gale quotes by David Mamet
#30. [A Chinese Restaurant.] Roma is seated alone at the booth. Lingk is at the booth next to him. Roma ,i>is talking to him.
* * *

Roma: . . . Eh? What I'm saying, what is our life? (Pause.) It's looking forward or it's looking back. And that's our life. That's it. Where is the moment? (Pause.) And what is it that we're afraid of? Loss. What else? (Pause.) The bank,/i> closes. We get sick, my wife died on a plane, the stock market collapsed . . . the house burnt down . . . what of these happen . . . ? None of 'em. We worry anyway. What does this mean? I'm not secure. How can I be secure? (Pause.) Through amassing wealth beyond all measure? No. And what's beyond all measure? That's a sickness. That's a trap. There is no measure. Only greed. How can we act? The right way, we would say, to deal with this: "There is a one-in-a million chance that so and so will happen. . . . Fuck it, it won't happen to me. . . ." No. We know that's not the right way I think. (Pause.) We say the correct way to deal with this is "There is a one-in-so-and-so chance that this will happen . . . God protect me. I am powerless, let it not happen to me. . . ." But no to that. I say. There's something else. What is it? "If it happens, AS IT MAY for that is not within our powers, I will deal with it, just as I do today with what draws my concern today." I say this is how we must act. I do those things which seem correct to me today. I trust myself. And if security concerns me, I do that #Quote by David Mamet
The Life Of David Gale quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#31. And if the civilized man's pursuits are no worthier than the savage's, if he is employed the greater part of his life in obtaininggross necessaries and comforts merely, why should he have a better dwelling than the former? #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
The Life Of David Gale quotes by David Richo
#32. What if all that happens to us is exactly what schools us in how to evolve in love in the course of life? That is the very definition of synchronicity, meaningful coincidence: Just the right events and people come along to allow us to articulate the love we are inside. All of them are emissaries of some nuance of light we need to let the full colors of our love appear in all their incandescence. #Quote by David Richo
The Life Of David Gale quotes by David Lloyd-Jones
#33. People are often unhappy in the Christian life because they have thought of Christianity, and the whole message of the gospel, in inadequate terms. #Quote by David Lloyd-Jones
The Life Of David Gale quotes by David Eagleman
#34. Albert Camus introduced his philosophy of the absurd, in which man searches for meaning in a fundamentally meaningless world. In this context, Camus proposed that the only real question in philosophy is whether or not to commit suicide. (He concluded that one should not commit suicide; instead, one should live to revolt against the absurd life, even though it will always be without hope. #Quote by David Eagleman
The Life Of David Gale quotes by David Foster Wallace
#35. The almost-35-year-old Terry Schmidt had very nearly nothing left anymore of the delusion that he differed from the great herd of the common run of men, not even in his despair at not making a difference or in the great hunger to have an impact that in his late twenties he'd clung to as evidence that even though he was emerging as sort of a failure the grand ambitions against which he judged himself a failure were somehow exceptional and superior to the common run's - not anymore, since now even the phrase Make A Difference had become a platitude so familiar that it was used as the mnemonic tag in low-budget Ad Council PSAs for Big Brothers/Big Sisters and the United Way, which used Make a Difference in a Child's Life and Making a Difference in Your Community respectively, with B.B./B.S. even acquiring the telephonic equivalent of DIF-FER-ENCE to serve as their Volunteer Hotline number in the metro area. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
The Life Of David Gale quotes by David Hewitt
#36. To excel in any walk of life, any stage of life, you need to have the two traits of focus and concentration to compliment #Quote by David Hewitt
The Life Of David Gale quotes by David Icke
#37. I am always loath to use the world 'evil,' but if 'evil' is the reverse of 'live,' Guy de Rothschild is thoroughly evil. He stands for the opposite of life. #Quote by David Icke
The Life Of David Gale quotes by David Brion Davis
#38. What matters is that Southern slaves, at least on the larger plantations, created their own African
American culture, which helped to preserve some of the more crucial areas of life and thought from white control or domination without significantly
reducing the productivity and profitability of slave labor. Living within this African American culture, sustained by strong community ties, many slaves were able to maintain a certain sense of apartness, of pride, and of independent identity. #Quote by David Brion Davis
The Life Of David Gale quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#39. A traveller! I love his title. A traveler is to be reverenced as such. His profession is the best symbol of our life. Going from–toward; it is the history of every one of us. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
