Velichko Roman quotes by Francis A. Schaeffer
#1. There is no New Testament basis for a linking of church and state until Christ, the King returns. The whole "Constantine mentality" from the fourth century up to our day was a mistake. Constantine, as the Roman Emperor, in 313 ended the persecution of Christians. Unfortunately, the support he gave to the church led by 381 to the enforcing of Christianity, by Theodosius I, as the official state religion. Making Christianity the official state religion opened the way for confusion up till our own day. There have been times of very good government when this interrelationship of church and state has been present. But through the centuries it has caused great confusion between loyalty to the state and loyalty to Christ, between patriotism and being a Christian.
We must not confuse the Kingdom of God with our country. To say it another way: "We should not wrap our Christianity in our national flag. #Quote by Francis A. Schaeffer
Velichko Roman quotes by Roman Coppola
#2. I really value distinctive movies, movies that feel that they came from a person that was really something that they had conceived and they made and is a reflection of who they are. #Quote by Roman Coppola
Velichko Roman quotes by Klaus Berger
#3. There are, broadly speaking, three directly analogous progressions inthe history of art: in Antiquity, from the blockiness of Egyptian art to the loose, painterly handling of Roman landscape frescoes; in the Middle Ages, from the tectonic emphasis of Ottonian art to the flamboyance of late Gothic; and in later times, from early Renaissance linearity to the sparkling web of light spun by the Rococo. The wheel turns full circle, but more rapidly each time. #Quote by Klaus Berger
Velichko Roman quotes by Roman Payne
#4. From flophouse bed
To poorhouse bread,
all outhouse sorrow:
I thee wed. #Quote by Roman Payne
Velichko Roman quotes by Edward Gibbon
#5. Yet the people, and even the clergy, incapable of forming any rational judgment of the business of peace and war, presumed to arraign the policy of Stilicho, who so often vanquished, so often surrounded, and so often dismissed the implacable enemy of the republic. The first moment of the public safety is devoted to gratitude and joy; but the second is diligently occupied by envy and calumny. #Quote by Edward Gibbon
Velichko Roman quotes by Anthony Boucher
#6. Richard Stark writes a harsh and frightening story of criminal warfare and vengeance with economy, understatement and a deadly amoral objectivity-a remarkable addition to the list of the shockers that the French call roman noirs. #Quote by Anthony Boucher
Velichko Roman quotes by Roman Polanski
#7. I would rather live in a country where children are protected and their predators prosecuted, and even (which in Hollywood is evidently not always the same thing) disapproved of. #Quote by Roman Polanski
Velichko Roman quotes by Reza Aslan
#8. The gospels claim that on either side of Jesus hung men who in Greek are called lestai, a word often rendered into English as "thieves" but which actually means "bandits" and was the most common Roman designation for an insurrectionist or rebel. #Quote by Reza Aslan
Velichko Roman quotes by Thomas Hobbes
#9. For, from the time that the Bishop of Rome had gotten to be acknowledged for bishop universal, by pretence of succession to St. Peter, their whole hierarchy, or kingdom of darkness, may be compared not unfitly to the kingdom of fairies; that is, to the old wives' fables in England concerning ghosts and spirits, and the feats they play in the night. And if a man consider the original of this great ecclesiastical dominion, he will easily perceive that the papacy is no other than the ghost of the deceased Roman Empire, sitting crowned upon the grave thereof: for so did the papacy start up on a sudden out of the ruins of that heathen power. #Quote by Thomas Hobbes
Velichko Roman quotes by Henry James Sumner Maine
#10. The Roman jurisprudence has the longest known history of any set of human institutions. #Quote by Henry James Sumner Maine
Velichko Roman quotes by Raymond D. Reifinger III
#11. The Lord is much like the air around us. The air is all around us, it is everywhere. Even though we can't see it, it is there, we know it is there, because we are breathing. The Lord is everywhere too, you can't see Him, but He is there, we know He is there, because we are breathing. (Page 183) #Quote by Raymond D. Reifinger III
Velichko Roman quotes by Alexi Lawless
#12. You don't drink?" Samantha asked, clearly surprised.
Jack shrugged easily. "Occasionally. But it's not my poison."
"And what is your poison?"
He eyed her dress.
Samantha laughed, a husky, sexy sound. "So your reputation is earned."
"Which one is that?"
"The one about you being a wily, unapologetic, womanizing rake."
"That's a mouthful. #Quote by Alexi Lawless
Velichko Roman quotes by Sigismund, Holy Roman Emperor
#13. I am king of the Romans, and above grammar. #Quote by Sigismund, Holy Roman Emperor
Velichko Roman quotes by Daniel J. Levitin
#14. The Roman philosopher Seneca the Younger (tutor to Nero) complained that his peers were wasting time and money accumulating too many books, admonishing that "the abundance of books is a distraction." Instead, Seneca recommended focusing on a limited number of good books, to be read thoroughly and repeatedly. #Quote by Daniel J. Levitin
Velichko Roman quotes by Daron Acemoglu
#15. A remarkable thing about new technologies in the Roman period is that their creation and spread seem to have been driven by the state. This is good news, until the government decides that it is not interested in technological development - and all-too-common occurrence due to the fear of creative destruction. #Quote by Daron Acemoglu
Velichko Roman quotes by Ilona Andrews
#16. I snapped the crossbow into the top of the mount, took a canvas bundle from the cart, and unrolled it. Crossbow bolts, tipped with the Galahad warheads.
"This is my baby." I petted the stock.
"You have a strange relationship with your weapons," Roman said.
"You have no idea," Raphael told him.
"This from a man with a living staff and a man who once drove four hours both ways for a sword he then put on his wall," I murmured.
"It was an Angus Trim," Raphael said.
"It's a sharpened strip of metal."
"You have an Angus Trim sword?" Kate's eyes lit up.
"Bought it at an estate auction," Raphael said. "If we get out of this alive, you are invited to come to my house and play with it."
It was good that Curran wasn't here and I was secure in our relationship, because that totally could be taken the wrong way. #Quote by Ilona Andrews
Velichko Roman quotes by Roman Polanski
#17. It's very important to set your place in a concrete environment. I think Chekhov said that the important thing when you have a play or any kind of novel is to set the roots in a concrete place. #Quote by Roman Polanski
Velichko Roman quotes by Jarod Kintz
#18. It's spring now, and I was just thinking that I haven't been in love since the fall. The fall of the Roman Empire. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Velichko Roman quotes by Karl Wiggins
#19. What has officially been declared as the basis of theological studies in the Roman Catholic Church has been enormously influenced by Islam and Muslim beliefs.

Funny old world, isn't it? #Quote by Karl Wiggins
Velichko Roman quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#20. Students of reading, writing and common arithmetick ... Graecian [Greek], Roman, English and American history ... should be rendered ... worthy to receive, and able to guard the sacred deposit of the rights and liberties of their fellow citizens. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Velichko Roman quotes by John H. Vanston
#21. If one considers the characters in the plays of Shakespeare, in the poems of the Roman poet Ovid, in the Greek tragedies of Sophocles and Euripides, and even in the hieroglyphics of ancient Egypt, they can be recognized in our daily lives. Their actions were driven by the same motives as ours - ambition, love, pride, fear, anger, sympathy, and fun. #Quote by John H. Vanston
Velichko Roman quotes by Robert D. Kaplan
#22. For two thousand years, the closer to Carthage (roughly the site of modern-day Tunis) the greater the level of development. Because urbanization in Tunisia started two millennia ago, tribal identity based on nomadism - which the medieval historian Ibn Khaldun said disrupted political stability - is correspondingly weak. Indeed, after the Roman general Scipio defeated Hannibal in 202 B.C. outside Tunis, he dug a demarcation ditch, or fossa regia, that marked the extent of civilized territory. The fossa regia remains relevant to the current Middle East crisis. Still visible in places, it runs from Tabarka on Tunisia's northwestern coast southward, and turns directly eastward to Sfax, another Mediterranean port. The #Quote by Robert D. Kaplan
Velichko Roman quotes by Francois Rabelais
#23. The most Christian France is the sole wet-nurse to the Roman court. #Quote by Francois Rabelais
Velichko Roman quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#24. Christianity was preached just on the basis of the fascination of this fanaticism, and that is what made it so attractive to the Greek and the Roman slaves. They believed that under the millennial religion there would be no more slavery, that there would be plenty to eat and drink; and, therefore, they flocked round the Christian standard. Those who preached the idea first were of course ignorant fanatics, but very sincere. In modern times this millennial aspiration takes the form of equality--of liberty, equality, and fraternity. This is also fanaticism. True #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Velichko Roman quotes by Joshua Ferris
#25. Catholics speak, like baseball players, in the coded language of gesture. Sure, the Roman Catholic Church is an abomination to man and a disgrace to God, but it comes with a highly structured Mass, several sacred pilgrimages, the oldest songs, the most impressive architecture, and a whole bunch of things to do whenever you enter the church. Taken all together, they make you one with your brother. #Quote by Joshua Ferris
Velichko Roman quotes by Janette Oke
#26. Alban finally realized why Pilate was so concerned about revolution. The man ruled this province with one irregular legion, mostly mercenaries, few fully trained. Against him stood a people who were united only by prayer. But united with a mysterious bond totally foreign to any Roman Alban knew. Roman #Quote by Janette Oke
Velichko Roman quotes by Noah Hawley
#27. David is in the entertainment business, which is what people in his line of work call television news these days. A Roman circus of information and opinions. #Quote by Noah Hawley
Velichko Roman quotes by Julio Cortazar
#28. All European writers are 'slaves of their baptism,' if I may paraphrase Rimbaud; like it or not, their writing carries baggage from an immense and almost frightening tradition; they accept that tradition or they fight against it, it inhabits them, it is their familiar and their succubus. Why write, if everything has, in a way, already been said? Gide observed sardonically that since nobody listened, everything has to be said again, yet a suspicion of guilt and superfluity leads the European intellectual to the most extreme refinements of his trade and tools, the only way to avoid paths too much traveled. Thus the enthusiasm that greets novelties, the uproar when a writer has succeeded in giving substance to a new slice of the invisible; merely recall symbolism, surrealism, the 'nouveau roman': finally something truly new that neither Ronsard, nor Stendahl , nor Proust imagined. For a moment we can put aside our guilt; even the epigones begin too believe they are doing something new. Afterwards, slowly, they begin to feel European again and each writer still has his albatross around his neck. #Quote by Julio Cortazar
Velichko Roman quotes by Carl Jung
#29. When a Pueblo Indian does not feel in the right mood, he stays away from the men's council. When an ancient Roman stumbled on the threshold as he left the house, he gave up his plans for the day. This seems to us senseless, but under primitive conditions of life such an omen inclines one at least to be cautious. When I am not in full control of myself, my bodily movements may be under a certain constraint; my attention is easily distracted; I am somewhat absent-minded. As a result I knock against something, stumble, let something fall, or forget something. #Quote by Carl Jung
Velichko Roman quotes by Stephen Poplin
#30. One of the distinctions that religious scholars make about various religions is the monotheistic and polytheistic world views. It seems to me that if one were to describe to a Hindu the myriad of divine beings in Christianity (and by relationship Judaism and Islam), such as angels, archangels, cherubim, seraphim, putti, Satan and his crew, Mother Mary, Jesus the son of God – who threw out demons; not to mention the saints and martyrs, who can be contacted and prayed to as divine guides, etc., I dare say this Hindu would consider the Christians polytheistic like himself. If we then include holy relics, the cunning snake and the talking fiery bush, then we are moving towards animism. Monotheism in this light is actually referring to One ruling (and jealous) god over many lesser "gods," deities, angels and souls, which is describing a polytheistic hierarchy and not monotheism.
My conclusion: there is no monotheism.
It may be heretical to say, but perhaps the Western religions have more in common with Hinduism and with the Roman or Scandinavian pantheons than they care to admit. #Quote by Stephen Poplin
Velichko Roman quotes by Keith J. Devlin
#31. Underlying all this activity - in the customhouses, on the wharves, in every place of business - were numbers. Merchants measured out their wares and negotiated prices; customs officers calculated taxes to be levied on imports; scribes and stewards prepared ships' manifests, recording the values in long columns using Roman numerals. They would have put their writing implements to one side and used either their fingers or a physical abacus to perform the additions, then picked up pen and parchment once again to enter the subtotals from each page on a final page at the end. With no record of the computation itself, if anyone questioned the answer, the entire process would have to be repeated. #Quote by Keith J. Devlin
Velichko Roman quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#32. It is a curious thing that in whaling vessels the Church of England Prayer book is always employed, though there is never a member of that Church among officers or crew. Our men are all Roman Catholics or Presbyterians, the former predominating. Since a ritual is used which is foreign to both, neither can complain that the other is preferred to them, and they listen with all attention and devotion, so that the system has something to recommend it. #Quote by Arthur Conan Doyle
Velichko Roman quotes by Jennifer   Wright
#33. To be clear, the Roman Empire didn't end because everybody was having sex. No civilization was ever toppled by "too much sexy time" - except for Bavaria in 1848, but that is an unrelated (if delightful) story. #Quote by Jennifer Wright
Velichko Roman quotes by Edward Gibbon
#34. Their poverty secured their freedom, since our desires and our possessions are the strongest fetters of despotism. #Quote by Edward Gibbon
Velichko Roman quotes by William Golding
#35. Malcolm Bradbury made the point, and I don't know whether it's a valid one or not, that the real English at the moment is not the English spoken in England or in America or even in Canada or Australia or New Zealand. The real English is the English which is a second language, so that it's rather like Latin in the days of the Roman Empire when people had their own languages, but had Latin in order to communicate. #Quote by William Golding
Velichko Roman quotes by George S. Patton Jr.
#36. For over a thousand years Roman conquerors returning from the wars enjoyed the honor of triumph, a tumultuous parade. In the procession came trumpeteers, musicians and strange animals from conquered territories, together with carts laden with treasure and captured armaments. The conquerors rode in a triumphal chariot, the dazed prisoners walking in chains before him. Sometimes his children robed in white stood with him in the chariot or rode the trace horses. A slave stood behind the conqueror holding a golden crown and whispering in his ear a warning: that all glory is fleeting. #Quote by George S. Patton Jr.
Velichko Roman quotes by Simon Garfield
#37. Ecofont is designed to save ink, money and eventually the planet, but heaven save us from worthy fonts. Ecofont is a program that adds holes to a font. The software takes Arial, Verdana, Times New Roman and prints them is if they had been attacked by moths. They retain their original shape but not their original form, and so lose their true weight and beauty... a study at the University of Wisconsin claimed that Ecofonts, such as Ecofont Vera Sans, actually uses more ink and toner than lighter fonts such as Century Gothic... #Quote by Simon Garfield
Velichko Roman quotes by Roman Polanski
#38. I like skiing, among other things, because I have moments when I am alone in the mountains. That's fantastic, when there's nobody around you. You see miles around you, and the sun is almost down . #Quote by Roman Polanski
Velichko Roman quotes by Roman Payne
#39. Do we take less pride in the possession of our home because its walls were built by some unknown carpenter, its tapestries woven by some unknown weaver on a far Oriental shore, in some antique time? No. We show our home to our friends with the pride as if it were our home, which it is. Why then should we take less pride when reading a book written by some long-dead author? Is it not our book just as much, or even more so, than theirs? So the landowner says, 'Look at my beautiful home! Isn't it fine?' And not, 'Look at the home so-and-so has built.' Thus we shouldn't cry, 'Look what so-and-so has written. What a genius so-and-so is!' But rather, 'Look at what I have read! Am I not a genius? Have I not invented these pages? The walls of this universe, did I not build? The souls of these characters, did I not weave? #Quote by Roman Payne
Velichko Roman quotes by John Dominic Crossan
#40. And how does one know that God is just? Because God stood against the Egyptian Empire to save some doomed slaves. God does not simply prefer Jews to Egyptians. God does not simply prefer slaves to masters. The only true God prefers justice to injustice, righteousness to unrighteousness, and is therefore God the Liberator. That very ancient Jewish tradition was destined to clash profoundly and fiercely with Roman commercialization, urbanization, and monetization in the first-century Jewish homeland. #Quote by John Dominic Crossan
Velichko Roman quotes by Roman Harper
#41. Programming is an explanatory activity. #Quote by Roman Harper
Velichko Roman quotes by Roman Payne
#42. Was I deranged? Maybe. Yet, is it not derangement that guides us to seek out those we want to love in this world? #Quote by Roman Payne
Velichko Roman quotes by Roman Payne
#43. Did I live the spring I'd sought?
It's true in joy, I walked along,
took part in dance,
and sang the song.
and never tried to bind an hour
to my borrowed garden bower;
nor did I once entreat
a day to slumber at my feet.
Yet days aren't lulled by lyric song,
like morning birds they pass along,
o'er crests of trees, to none belong;
o'er crests of trees of drying dew,
their larking flight, my hands, eschew
Thus I'll say it once and true ...
From all that I saw,
and everywhere I wandered,
I learned that time cannot be spent,
It only can be squandered. #Quote by Roman Payne
