Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Criss Jami
“It is the philosophers, theologians, and evangelists who are said to be filled with pride and bigotry due to the strong convictions that they represent. On the contrary, teachings can be either taken or dismissed; whereas voting is the only thing the average person can do to force everyone to live how they would prefer. A simple vote is among the largest yet most acceptable forms of bigotry, and that is because people play the card only when they feel that in doing so it conveniences themselves.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

“A lengthy and painful discussion followed. It lasted through tea and dinner. It was revealed to Lady Beatrice that, though she had been sincerely mourned when Mamma had been under the impression she was dead, her unexpected return to life was something more than inconvenient. Had she never considered the disgrace she would inflict upon her family by returning, after all that had happened to her? What were all Aunt Harriet's neighbors to think?”
Kage Baker, The Women of Nell Gwynne's

Howard Tayler

Howard Tayler, Emperor Pius Dei

There is no window to look within.
Open the doors.”

Mango Wodzak
“By saying that human issues are more important than non-human issues, that violence to humans is more relevant than violence to animals, one forgets that the animal liberation movement implies a message of peace for every being on earth and the opposition against the mindset of oppression. To make a distinction between one violence and another is exactly the root of all violence: Some wouldn't do any harm to those who share with them a flag, a religion, a language, etc. but would easily condemn to suffering and death those who are different. This tragic use of diversity as an excuse to inflict pain on others for a matter of profit and convenience is the cause of suffering for both human and non-human animals.”
Mango Wodzak, The Eden Fruitarian Guidebook

“Do we work for and pay for all this convenience in order to live our lives, or do we live our lives in order to work for and pay for all this convenience?”

Lara Adrian, Deeper Than Midnight

Christina Engela
“Our community deserves leaders who should know what debates and arguments are better conducted out of the public eye, instead of dumping their baskets of dirty laundry all over the internet. Our community deserves leaders who do not put political expedience or convenience before their commitments to those they supposedly represent. Our community deserves leaders who do not make about-turns on issues such as freedom of speech and accountability to the community they serve when it becomes too embarrassing for them, or too uncomfortable. Our community deserves leaders who can and want to work together, not fling their handbags at each other, hissing like drama queens.”
Christina Engela

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“If the truth gets in the way, I will remove it. But truth be told, removing the truth never removes the truth.”

“What is the point of "labor saving" if by making work effortless we make it poor, and if by doing poor work we weaken our bodies and lose conviviality and health? (Health is Membership, pg. 93)”
Wendell Berry, Another Turn of the Crank

“For convenience sake, we deny the truth and look past it. Instant pleasure transforms quietly into immense pain.”
Amitav Chowdhury

Christina Engela
“The last week hadn’t been any better, come to think of it. On Monday they arrived at Gorda, just to find that the cargo of electronics he was to ship to Beowulf had been taken by another freighter for a lower fee. It took him until Wednesday before he found another cargo – which had to reach Earth by Saturday. The last straw was when his crew mutinied a day out of the Hermes system and demanded a pay increase. The union tended to call that sort of thing “collective bargaining”, not actually mutiny, but hey – the results are the same. He tended to favor the term “piracy”, but this wasn’t the high seas and out here, there were real pirates to worry about. His former crew had also wanted more time off and a better cook – at least one who knew how which end of a frying pan to hold. He was unable to comply, and so was forced to stop at Beowulf anyway. That was the last time he saw them. Fortunately for him, Weaver, Fuller and Jang opted to stay with him. Whether it was out of loyalty, or perhaps just convenience, he never knew.”
Christina Engela, Blachart

“We do not believe in murder! We believe in convenience in our careers, in our cuisine, in our kills, and in our definitions.”
Danielle Valenilla, Fun Dip & Other Misfortunes

“To live intentionally implies that it is not going to be always convenient but it is what will take you to significance if you do not give up.”
Sunday Adelaja, The Mountain of Ignorance

Isabel Allende
“En el amor nadie piensa en la conveniencia.”
Isabel Allende, Ripper

Anthony Liccione
“There are people that will give you time when it shines, then fade away when it shades.”
Anthony Liccione

“Many people have played with the 4P’s and even with the 4C’s, tried to put their own particular stamp on it, but at the risk of sounding arrogant, no variation I’ve ever seen has expressed the outside-in concept as simply and elegantly as the original 4C’s formulation.”
Robert F. Lauterborn
