generations

A Quote by David Mack on books, computers, generations, obsession, people, technology, and television

Otaku: the most formal way of referring to 'you' in Japanese. Implying a technological barrier between people. Otaku has come to refer to the often obsessive and reclusive individuals of Japan's new generation who are more comfortable with computers, games, books, data, television and technology than with people.

A Quote by Daniel Webster on architecture, future, generations, government, individuality, liberty, prosperity, security, and war

If war should sweep our commerce from the seas, another generation will restore it. If war exhausts our treasury, future industry will replenish it. If war desiccate and lay waste our fields, under new cultivation they will grow green again and ripen to future harvest. If the walls of yonder Capitol should fall and its decorations be covered by the dust of battle, all these can be rebuilt. But who shall reconstruct the fabric of a demolished government; who shall dwell in the well-proportioned columns of constitutional liberty; who shall frame together the skillful architecture which unites sovereignty with state's rights, individual security with prosperity?

Daniel Webster (1782 - 1852)

A Quote by Daniel Webster on day, generations, heaven, life, and men

Venerable men! you have come down to us from a former generation. Heaven has bounteously lengthened out your lives, that you might behold this joyous day.

A Quote by Clifton Fadiman on books, generations, and good

There is no reader so parochial as the one who reads none but this morning's books. Books are not rolls, to be devoured only when they are hot and fresh. A good book retains its interior heat and will warm a generation yet unborn.

A Quote by Christopher Darlington Morley on babies, compassion, generations, gratitude, heart, justice, life, men, sacrifice, time, understanding, and world

Standing by the crib of one's own baby, with that world - old pang of compassion and protectiveness toward this so little creature that has all its course to run, the heart flies back in yearning and gratitude to those who felt just so toward one's self. Then for the first time one understands the homely succession of sacrifices and pains by which life is transmitted and fostered down the stumbling generations of men.

Christopher Morley (1890 - 1957)

A Quote by Brooke Foss Westcott on atheism, charm, christianity, church, conscience, day, duty, divinity, earth, faith, fatherhood, future, generations, god, heaven, language, life, men, past, practicality, pride, rest, separation, present, thought, trad

It is not enough to hold that God did great things for our fathers: not enough to pride ourselves on the inheritance of victories of faith: not enough to build the sepulchres of those who were martyred by men unwilling, in their day of trial as we may be in our own, to hear new voices of a living God. Our duty is to see whether God is with us; whether we expect great things from Him; whether we do not practically place Him far off, forgetting that, if He is, He is about us, speaking to us words that have not been heard before, guiding us to paths on which earlier generations have not been able to enter. There is - most terrible thought! - a practical atheism, orthodox in language, reverent in bearing, which can enter a Christian church and charm the conscience to rest with shadowy traditions; an atheism which grows incessantly within us if we separate what cannot be separated with impunity, the secular from the divine, the past and the future from the present, earth from heaven, the things of Caesar from the things of God.

A Quote by Boyd K. Packer on ancestry, birth, children, fatherhood, generations, god, heaven, mind, mortality, nobility, people, spirit, and truth

You are a child of God. He is father of your spirit. Spiritually you are of noble birth, the offspring of the King of Heaven. Fix that truth in your mind and hold to it. However many generations in your mortal ancestry, no matter what race or people you represent, the pedigree of your spirit can be written on a single line. You are a child of God!

Boyd K. Packer (1924 -)

A Quote by Brad Darrach on generations, money, and uncertainty

The hair was a Vaseline cathedral, the mouth a touchingly uncertain sneer of allure. One, two-wham! Like a berserk blender the lusty young pelvis whirred and the notorious git-tar slammed forward with a jolt that symbolically deflowered a generation of teenagers and knocked chips off 90 million older shoulders. Then out of the half-melted vanilla face a wild black baritone came bawling in orgasmic lurches. Whu-huh-huh-huh f'the money! Two f'the show! Three t'git riddy naa GO CAAT GO!
