destruction

A Quote by W. Walter Williams on destruction, ethics, family, history, impossibility, kindness, liberals, racism, slavery, and work

History is not going to be kind to liberals. With their mindless programs, they've managed to do to Black Americans what slavery, Reconstruction, and rank racism found impossible: destroy their family and work ethic.

A Quote by Viktor E. Frankl on brothers, camping, children, commitment, destruction, existence, family, fatherhood, hunger, life, losing, love, meaning, memory, motherhood, possessions, sister, suffering, suicide, talent, time, value, wives, and worth

Allport, Gordon W., in his preface to Man's Search for Meaning: "WHY DO YOU NOT COMMIT SUICIDE?" Dr. Frankl asks his patients. . . . in one life there is love for one's children to tie to; in another life, a talent to be used; in a third, perhaps only lingering memories worth preserving. . . . As a long-time prisoner in bestial concentration camps he [Viktor Frankl] found himself stripped to naked existence. His father, mother, brother, and his wife died in camps or were sent to gas ovens, so that, excepting for his sister, his entire family perished in these camps. How could he - every possession lost, every value destroyed, suffering from hunger, cold and brutality, hourly expecting extermination - how could he find life worth preserving?

Viktor Frankl (1905 - 1997)

A Quote by Vernon Howard on destruction, needs, and thinking

Quit thinking that you must halt before the barrier of inner negativity. You need not. You can crash through . . . wherever we see a negative state, that is where we can destroy it.

A Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin on change, destruction, ethics, heroism, joy, life, mystery, myth, poets, reason, and religion

True myths may serve for thousands of years as an inexhaustible source of intellectual speculation, religious joy, ethical inquiry, and artistic renewal. The real mystery is not destroyed by reason. The fake one is. You look at it and it vanishes. You look at the Blonde Hero--really look--and he turns into a gerbil. But you look at Apollo, and he looks back at you. The poet Rilke looked at a statue of Apollo about fifty years ago, and Apollo spoke to him. "You must change your life," he said. When the true myth rises into consciousness, that is always its message. You must change your life.

Ursula K. Le Guin (1929 -)

A Quote by unknown on deception, destruction, force, power, and technology

Do not be deceived by this technological terror you have created. The power to destroy a planet is insignificant when compared with the power of the Force.

A Quote by unknown on authors, destruction, god, reason, and wishes

Whom God wishes to destroy he first deprives of reason. The author of this saying is unknown. Barnes erroneously ascribes it to Euripides.
