A Quote by Dana Meadows on culture, talk, friends, causes, believe, join, strangers, crass messages, embarrassing, shyness, intrusion, rejection, share, real, heartfelt, commitments, easier, cynicism, and dreams

It is not OK in this culture to talk to friends about causes you believe in, much less to ask them to join in. It's OK to blast perfect strangers with crass messages every hour of the day, but it's a tinge embarrassing, it brings up some shyness, it seems an intrusion, it risks rejection to share real heartfelt commitments. It's easier to share our cynicism with strangers than our dreams with friends.

A Quote by Erin Lindsey on venus envy, ve, and cynicism

The excrement most human minds expunge disgusts me, so it is naturally in my best interests to rid myself of them. I only tolerate Lisa because she doesn't expunge too terribly much.

A Quote by Miller Williams on compassion, cynicism, and spirit

Have compassion for everyone you meet, even if they don't want it.  What appears bad manners, an ill temper or cynicism is always a sign of things no ears have heard, no eyes have seen.  You do not know what wars are going on down there where the spirit meets the bone.

A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on anger, cynicism, disappointment, disillusionment, emotion, feeling, meaning, people, quality, relationships, and resentment

Lose/Win people bury a lot of feelings. And unexpressed feelings come forth later in uglier ways. Psychosomatic illnesses often are the reincarnation of cumulative resentment, deep disappointment and disillusionment repressed by the Lose/Win mentality. Disproportionate rage or anger, overreaction to minor provocation, and cynicism are other embodiments of suppressed emotion. People who are constantly repressing, not transcending feelings toward a higher meaning find that it affects the quality of their relationships with others.

Stephen Covey (1932 -)

A Quote by Walter Lippmann on achievement, authority, cleverness, cynicism, destruction, duty, freedom, heroism, indifference, liberty, life, men, order, preparation, sacrifice, spirit, thought, tragedy, weakness, world, and elightenment

Without order or authority in the spirit of man the free way of life leads through weakness, disorganization, self-indulgence, and moral indifference to the destruction of freedom itself. The tragic ordeal through which the Western world is passing was prepared in the long period of easy liberty, during which men . . . forgot that their freedom was achieved by heroic sacrifice. . . . They forgot that their rights were founded on their duties. . . . They thought it clever to be cynical, enlightened to be unbelieving, and sensible to be soft.

Walter Lippmann (1889 - 1974)
