betrayal

A Quote by Anaïs Nin on love, death, blindness, weariness, and betrayal

Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don't know how to replenish it's source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.

Anaïs Nin (1903 - 1977)

A Quote by Rob Brezsny on media, news, tv, movies, books, newspapers, bad news, publishing, murder, addiction, self-hatred, sexual pathology, shame, betrayal, extortion, robbery, cancer, arson, torture, life, and meaning

The average American child sees 20,000 murders in TV before reaching age 18.  This is considered normal.  Every community has video rental stores filled with multimillion-dollar films that depict people doing terrible things to each other.  If you read newspapers, you have every right to believe that Bad Nasty Things compose 90 percent of the human experience.  The authors of thousands of books pu

But you will be hard-pressed to find more than a few novels, films, news stories, and TV shows that dare to depict life as a gift whose purpose is to enrich the human soul.

A Quote by Edward Paul Abbey on friendship, betrayal, and causes

I would never betray a friend to serve a cause. Never reject a friend to help an institution. Great nations may fall in ruin before I would sell a friend to save them.

A Quote by Milan Kundera on betrayal

Until that time, her betrayals had filled her with excitement and joy, because they opened up new paths to new adventures of betrayal.  But what if the paths came to an end?  One could betray one's parents, husband, country, love, but when parents, husband, country, and love were gone - what was left to betray?

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on courage, growth, belief, betrayal, failure, suffering, perspective, and persistence

Every Warrior of the Light has felt afraid of going into battle.
Every Warrior of the Light has, at some time in the past, lied or betrayed someone.
Every Warrior of the Light has trodden a path that was not his.
Every Warrior of the Light has suffered for the most trivial of reasons.
Every Warrior of the Light has, at least once, believed he was not a Warrior of the Light.
Every Warrior of the Light has failed in his spiritual duties.
Every Warrior of the Light has said 'yes' when he wanted to say 'no.'
Every Warrior of the Light has hurt someone he loved.
That is why he is a Warrior of the Light, because he has been through all this and yet has never lost hope of being better than he is.

Paulo Coelho
