A Quote by Louisa May Alcott on driving


Girls are so queer you never know what they mean. They say No when they mean Yes, and drive a man out of his wits for the fun of it.

A Quote by Lao Tzu on driving, heart, impulses, life, mind, motherhood, obsession, people, and sex

Although most people spend their entire lives following this biological impulse (i.e. the sex drive), it is only a tiny portion of our beings. . . . If we remain obsessed with seeds and eggs, we are married to the fertile reproductive valley of the Mysterious Mother but not to her immeasurable heart and all-knowing mind.

Lao Tzu (c.604 - 531 B.C.)

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on church, darkness, driving, emptiness, faith, falsehood, glory, gold, hypocrisy, jesus, life, praise, and sacred

Oh Jesus, they have built these churches for the sake of their own glory, and embellished them with silk and melted gold. . . . They left the bodies of Thy chosen poor wrapped in tattered raiment in the cold night. . . . They filled the sky with the smoke of burning candles and incense and left the bodies of Thy faithful worshipers empty of bread. . . . They raised their voices with hymns of praise, but deafened themselves to the cry and moan of the widows and orphans. Come again, Oh Living Jesus, and drive the vendors of Thy faith from Thy sacred temple, for they have turned it into a dark cave where vipers of hypocrisy and falsehood crawl and abound.

A Quote by Dr. Joost A. M. Meerloo, MD on civilization, conflict, confusion, culture, driving, men, planning, science, society, success, and understanding

If men can be made to understand that society, with its rigid codes and stratifications, is in its confused infancy rather than in the apex of its development; if they can be made to understand that the conflicts and contradictions of society can only be resolved by scientific long-range planning-then we will succeed in maintaining what civilization we have and drive onward to greater culture.

A Quote by John Wayne on driving


Male menopause is a lot more fun than female menopause. With female menopause you gain weight and get hot flashes. Male menopause - you get to date young girls and drive motorcycles.

A Quote by John Trumbull on driving


But as some muskets so contrive it As oft to miss the mark they drive at, And though well aimed at duck or plover, Bear wide, and kick their owners over.

A Quote by John Milton on angels, chastity, clarity, dreams, driving, guilt, soul, and vision

So dear to heav'n is saintly chastity, That when a soul is found sincerely so, A thousand liveried angels lackey her, Driving far off each thing of sin and guilt, And in clear dream and solemn vision Tell her of things that no gross ear can hear, Till oft converse with heav'nly habitants Begin to cast a beam on th' outward shape.

John Milton (1608 - 1674)

A Quote by Jean Jacques Rousseau on driving, reverie, senses, soul, and water

As evening approached, I came down from the heights of the island, and I liked then to go and sit on the shingle in some secluded spot by the lake; there the noise of the waves and the movement of the water, taking hold of my senses and driving all other agitation from my soul, would plunge me into delicious reverie in which night often stole upon me unawares.

Jacques Rousseau (1712 - 1778)
