A strong, positive self-image is the best possible preparation for success in life.joyce brothers
"So much of what we do is ephemeral and quickly forgotten, even by ourselves, so it's gratifying to have something you have done linger in people's memories." "There’s a very basic human, non-verbal aspect to our need to make music and use it as part of our human expression. It doesn’t have to do with body movements, it doesn't have to do with articulation of a language, but with something spiritual."john williams
It is of course not sufficient to appeal to the authority of Marx, Hegel, or any of their contemporaries follower to establish the validity of the direction of History. In the century and a half since they wrote, their intellectual legacy has been relentlessly assaulted from all directions. The most profound thinkers of the twentieth century have directly attacked the idea that history is a coherent of intelligible process; indeed, they have denied the possibility that any aspect of human life is philosophically intelligible.karl marx
There's some ill planet reigns; I must be patient till the heavens look With an aspect more favorable.william shakespeare
At the heart of the First Amendment is the recognition of the fundamental importance of the free flow of ideas and opinions on matters of public interest and concern. The freedom to speak one's mind is not only an aspect of individual liberty – and thus a good unto itself – but also is essential to the common quest for truth and the vitality of society as a whole. We have therefore been particularly vigilant to ensure that individual expressions of ideas remain free from governmentally imposed sanctions.Chief Justice William Rehnquist, Hustler Magazine v. Falwell, 485 U.S. 46 (1988).
The path of spiritual progress that the teachers of the Bengal school recommend is neither yoga nor jnana but bhakti. While the followers of the way of yoga emphasise the subjective aspect and those of the path of jnana both the subjective and objective aspect, the followers of the path of bhakti emphasize the objective aspect of consciousness .Vaishnavism school of Bengal quoted in "Hindu spirituality: Postclassical and modern", by K. R. Sundararajan in p. 57
Prayer is perpetual stillness of the heart, a surrendering to yourself as the aspect of God within you. Prayer is not beseeching an entity outside us for favors, but acknowledging the presence within us...A Spiritual Warrior, in Treasury Of Spiritual Wisdom A Collection Of 10,000 Powerful Quotations For ..., p.374
You're blessed with a woman's brain: vague, slippery, inexact, interested only inthe personal aspect of a thing.1910 The Getting ofWisdom, ch.9.
Insofar as the genocide embodied in residential schooling arises as an integral aspect of colonialism, then colonialism must be seen as constituting that source... To be in any way an apologist for colonialism is to be an active proponent of genocide.ward churchill
At the present time I seem to be thinking rationally again in the style that is characteristic of scientists. However this is not entirely a matter of joy as if someone returned from physical disability to good physical health. One aspect of this is that rationality of thought imposes a limit on a person's concept of his relation to the cosmos.john forbes nash
To the American people of 1789, their nation promised a new way of life: each individual a free man; each having the right to seek his own happiness; a republican form of government in which the people would be sovereign; and no arbitrary power over people's lives. Less than two hundred years later, almost every aspect of the dream has been lost.charles a. reich
Every aspect of personal life is radically affected by the quality of general life, and yet the general life is seen at its most important in completely personal terms.Raymond Williams
A good character is almost always derived from an aspect of the performer's personality.Dave Goelz, Muppeteer, p. 96
She walks in beauty, like the night Of cloudless climes and starry skies; And all that's best of dark and bright Meet in her aspect and her eyes: Thus mellow'd to that tender light Which heaven to gaudy day denies.lord byron
It's really tough to make a name for yourself without compromising and without fitting yourself into a real specific mold. When I made the choice that I would be involved in every aspect of music and not necessarily make music for radio or MTV, I was saying, 'OK, this is me. You decide who it is.' "josh groban
Monetary relations have penetrated into every nook and cranny of the world and into almost every aspect of social, even private life.david harvey
In yet another aspect he is the last of the great system-builders, the successor of Hegel , a believer, like him, in a rational formula summing up the evolution of mankind.karl marx
The need to make music, and to listen to it, is universally expressed by human beings. I cannot imagine, even in our most primitive times, the emergence of talented painters to make cave paintings without there having been, near at hand, equally creative people making song. It is, like speech, a dominant aspect of human biology.lewis thomas
"Here you see the pattern from which my great work is derived. It expresses the symbolic significance of NULLITY to which TOTALITY must necessarily attach itself, by Kratinjae's Second Law of Cryptorrhoid Affinities, with which you are possibly familiar." "Not in every aspect," said Cugel.jack vance
Every part of the system is so related to every other part that any change in one aspect results in dynamic changes in all other parts of the total systemArthur D. Hall and Robert E. Fagen (1956), "Definition of System", in: General Systems, 1 (1956), p. 18: Cited in: Harold Chestnut (1967) Systems Engineering Methods. p.121

I had no inkling that the new substance would also come to be used beyond medical science, as an inebriant in the drug scene. Since my self-experiment had revealed LSD in its terrifying, demonic aspect, the last thing I could have expected was that this substance could ever find application as anything approaching a pleasure drug.Dr. Albert Hofmann, in LSD : My Problem Child (1980), Ch. 1 : How LSD Originated
Our lives are shaped as profoundly by personality as by gender or race. And the single most important aspect of personality ... is where we fall on the introvert-extrovert spectrum.Susan Cain (2012) "Why the world needs introverts," The Guardian, March 13, 2012 quoting Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking.
God is growth, God is structure/knowledge, God is everything and nothing simultaneously. And, rather heretically for the Abrahamic religions, to perceive i.e. to cognate i.e. to be of matter i.e. to be structured energy generating a gravimetric field is an aspect of God relating to another aspect of God through light, which is of course God. In this, the underlying metaphysics are most definitely Pandeist.Niall Douglas, Freeing Growth - A Neo-Capitalist Manifesto, 2009, page 8.
There’s some ill planet reigns: I must be patient till the heavens look With an aspect more favourable. Good my lords, I am not prone to weeping, as our sex Commonly are the want of which vain dew Perchance shall dry your pities but I have That honourable grief lodg’d here, which burns Worse than tears drown.
