"To regret the exchange of earthly pleasures for the joys of heaven, is as if the grovelling caterpillar should lament that it must one day quit the nibbled leaf to soar aloft and flutter through the air, roving at will from flower to flower, sipping sweet honey from their cups, or basking in their sunny petals."
Their gaze met for a few seconds. The exchange was as warm and friendly as a pair of automated range finders getting a mutual target lock.dan abnett
By virtue of exchange, one man's prosperity is beneficial to all others.frédéric bastiat
Things are only mannequins and even the great world-historical events are only costumes beneath which they exchange glances with nothingnesswalter benjamin
Christ illustrates the purport of life as He descends from His transfiguration to toil, and goes forward to exchange that robe of heavenly brightness for the crown of thorns.edwin hubbell chapin
The social dynamics of human history, even more than that of biological evolution, illustrate the fundamental principle of ecological evolution - that everything depends on everything else. The nine elements that we have described in societal evolution of the three families of phenotypes - the phyla of things, organizations and people, the genetic bases in knowledge operating through energy and materials to produce phenotypes, and the three bonding relations of threat, integration and exchange - all interact on each other.kenneth boulding
The dictionary definition of communication ... includes the communication of goods and supplies... But transport of goods is not communication in the sense we are adopting here, and does not raise the same subtle and difficult questions. What "goods" do we exchange when we send messages to one another?
If my love is without sacrifice , it is selfish . Such a love is barter, for there is exchange of love and devotion in return for something. It is conditional love.

So long as the law considers all these human beings, with beating hearts and living affections, only as so many things belonging to the master so long as the failure, or misfortune, or imprudence, or death of the kindest owner, may cause them any day to exchange a life of kind protection and indulgence for one of hopeless misery and toil so long is it impossible to make anything beautiful or desirable in the best-regulated administration of slavery.harriet beecher stowe
I was well on the way to forming my present attitude toward politics as it is practiced in the United States; it is a beautiful fraud that has been imposed on the people for years, whose practitioners exchange gelded promises for the most valuable thing their victims own: their votes. And who benefits the most? The lawyers.shirley chisholm
A new global financial environment has unfolded in several stages since the collapse of the Bretton Woods system of fixed exchange rates in 1971.michel chossudovsky
The playing field is more sacred than the stock exchange, more blessed than Capital Hill or the vaults of Fort Knox. The diamond and the gridiron - and, to a lesser degree, the court, the rink, the track, and the ring - embody the American dream of Eden.lewis h. lapham
A scientist said, making a plea for exchange scholarships between nations, "The very best way to send an idea is to wrap it up in a person." That was what happened at Christmas. The idea of divine love was wrapped up in a Person.halford e. luccock
The occupation of the stock-jobber yields no new or useful product; consequently having no product of his own to give in exchange, he has no revenue to subsist upon, but what he contrives to make out of the unskilfulness or ill-fortune of gamesters like himself.jean-baptiste say
The stock exchange is a poor substitute for the Holy Grail.joseph schumpeter
There was a daily exchange of courtesies between our machine guns and the Germans' at stand-to; by removing cartridges from the ammunition-belt one could rap out the rhythm of the familiar prostitutes' call: "MEET me DOWN in PICC-a-DILL-y", to which the Germans would reply, though in slower tempo, because our guns were faster than theirs: "YES, with-OUT my DRAWERS ON!"robert graves
The bourgeois public sphere may be conceived above all as the sphere of private people come together as a public; they soon claimed the public sphere regulated from above against the public authorities themselves, to engage them in a debate over the general rules governing relations in the basically privatized but publicly relevant sphere of commodity exchange and social labor.jürgen habermas
Have in readiness this saying of Solon, "But we will not give up our virtue in exchange for their wealth."Plutarch
In fact , at this point in history , the most radical , pervasive, and earth -shaking transformation would occur simply if everybody truly evolved to a mature , rational , and responsible ego , capable of freely participating in the open exchange of mutual self -esteem.. There is the "edge of history." There would be a real New Age.ken wilber
Nay, why should I fear Death, who gives us life, and in exchange takes breath?
Leading fosters a working atmosphere that stimulates an open exchange of ideas and fosters dissent. People should show a genuine concern for one another and treat one another with fairness, as peers and friends. With such an atmosphere it should be a pleasure to come to work.
There are just too many Americans grubbing for free stuff and a preponderance of Republicans eager to parcel it out in exchange for power.
International specialization and division of labor requires institutions and organizations to safeguard property rights across international boundaries so that capital markets as well as other kinds of exchange can take place with credible commitment on the part of the players.
Have in readiness this saying of Solon, "But we will not give up our virtue in exchange for their wealth."
