The mythos-over-logos argument points to the fact that each child is born as ignorant as any caveman. What keeps the world from reverting to the Neandertal with each generation is the continuing, ongoing mythos, transformed into logos but still mythos, the huge body of common knowledge that unites our minds as cells are united in the body of man. To feel that one is not so united, that one can accept or discard this mythos as one pleases, is not to understand what the mythos is.
The comfortable estate of widowhood, is the only hope that keeps up a wife's spirits.john gay
A fresh mind keeps the body fresh. Take in the ideas of the day, drain off those of yesterday. As to the morrow, time enough to consider it when it becomes to-day.edward bulwer-lytton
The fear of some divine and supreme powers keeps men in obedience.robert burton
It's the wild, wild West of baseball, and it just keeps getting wilder.joe kehoskie

Seriousness is the Christian's ballast which keeps him from being overturned with vanity.thomas watson
I take my wife everywhere, but she keeps finding her way back.henny youngman
How would you like to have a father who keeps getting younger looking every year? Do you realize what that can do to a woman?jane fonda
The fear of becoming a "has been" keeps some people from becoming anything.Eric Hoffer
When people speak of ideas that revolutionize society, they do but express the fact that within the old society, the elements of a new one have been created, and that the dissolution of the old ideas keeps even pace with the dissolution of the old conditions of existence.karl marx
In response to a question about what "keeps her up at night", I worry about the fact that in K-12 education I can look at your zip code and tell whether or not you're going to get a good education.condoleezza rice
It is not the fact that a man has riches which keeps him from the kingdom of heaven, but the fact that riches have him.
The love of these things that are outside visible Christianity keeps me outside the Church... But it also seems to me that when one speaks to you of unbelievers who are in affliction and accept their affliction as a part of the order of the world, it does not impress you in the same way as if it were a question of Christians and of submission to the will of God. Yet it is the same thing.
The higher the trail the steeper it grows Ten thousand tiers of dangerous cliffs The stone bridge is slippery with green moss Cloud after cloud keeps flying by Waterfalls hang like ribbons of silk The moon shines down on the bright pool I climb the highest peak once more To wait where the lone crane flies
It is not for nothing that this "ignoble tabagie," as Michelet calls it, spreads over all the world. Michelet rails against it because it renders you happily apart from thought or work;… Whatever keeps a man in the front garden, whatever checks wandering fancy and all inordinate ambition, whatever makes for lounging and contentment, makes just so surely for domestic happiness.Robert Louis Stevenson
The walls we build around us to keep sadness out also keeps out the joy.Jim Rohn
Whoe'er has gone thro' London street, Has seen a butcher gazing at his meat, And how he keeps Gloating upon a sheep's Or bullock's personals, as if his own; How he admires his halves And quarters and his calves, As if in truth upon his own legs grown.thomas hood
If there is any thing that keeps the mind open to angel visits, and repels the ministry of ill, it is human love.
Dress drains our cellar dry, And keeps our larder lean; puts out our fires And introduces hunger, frost, and woe, Where peace and hospitality might reign.william cowper
To him whose elastic and vigorous thought keeps pace with the sun, the day is a perpetual morning.Henry David Thoreau
A fair face will wither; a full eye will wax hollow: but a good heart, Kate, is the sun and the moon; or, rather, the sun and not the moon; for it shines bright, and never changes, but keeps his course truly. If thou would have such a one, take me: and take me, take a soldier; take a soldier, take a king: and what say'st thou then to my love? Speak, my fair, and fairly, I pray thee.
It's the possibility that keeps me going, not the guarantee.Nicholas Sparks
