A Quote by Ludwig von Mises on freedom, liberty, cencorship, approval, and subjectivism

It is completely in accord with the etatist thinking prevalent everywhere today to consider a theory to be finally disposed of merely because the authorities who control appointments to academic positions, want to know nothing of it, and to see the criterion of truth in the approval of a government office.

Ludwig von Mises

A Quote by Dr. Deepak Chopra on approval, awareness, bliss, control, decisions, egotism, judgment, needs, and time

If you want to reach a state of bliss, then go beyond your ego and the internal dialogue. Make a decision to relinquish the need to control, the need to be approved, and the need to judge. Those are the three things the ego is doing all the time. It's very important to be aware of them every time they come up.

A Quote by unknown on acting, approval, debate, defense, expectation, history, kindness, men, military, service, and time

The signification attributed to the term Militia appears from the debates in the [Constitutional] Convention, the history and legislation of Colonies and States, and the writings of approved commentators. These show plainly enough that the Militia comprised all males physically capable of acting in concert for the common defense. . . . And further, that ordinarily when called for service these men were expected to appear bearing arms supplied by themselves and of the kind in common use at the time.

A Quote by Thomas Stearns Eliot on approval, attitude, authors, behavior, and certainty

When we read of human beings behaving in certain ways, with the approval of the author, who gives his benediction to this behavior by his attitude towards the result of the behavior arranged by himself, we can be influenced towards behaving in the same way.

T.S. Eliot (1888 - 1965)
