I’ve had more people in my life take their lives than… I think it’s out of proportion with most people. I think a lot of them gravitate towards me because of the music.

In the old days, people shared music; they didn’t care who made it. A song would be owned by a village, and anyone could sing it, change the words, whatever.

I sort of always had an inkling towards some kind of an art form. I grew up in a very small town, and I just figure-skated. My dad played hockey and I was surrounded by sports, but it wasn’t quite doing it for me. I wasn’t totally fulfilled, and I did a lot of skating.

What is required as we travel towards full unemployment is not new legislation but a gradual change of mental attitude, a shift in values. As our taste for idling grows, we will refuse to work for old-fashioned bosses who demand a five-day, 40-hour, nine-to-five type week, or worse.
Spiderman was my favorite comic book character growing up. I’m a geek, so I love the fact Peter Parker is into science. And I gravitate towards short guys. I’m 5′ 9″ now, but in junior high, I got picked on because I was 4′ 8″.

I was a little tomboy, growing up, but we had to go to the library every weekend if we wanted some form of entertainment.

The Modi government’s accountability towards the common man can be gauged from the fact that be it Indians trapped overseas, a helpless mother looking for a doctor for her ailing child in a train, or a housewife struggling to get a gas cylinder, help is just a tweet away, with no protocol or red tape intervening.

The story of Noah, like other stories in the first 11 chapters of Genesis, are archetypal. Noah’s story tells us that human beings have an inherent tendency towards violence both towards their fellow human beings and towards the creation itself. The story tells us that this violence grieves God.
We assume that we’ve come so far as compassionate citizens of the world if we do choose to read the news, yet the attitude towards life can be one where we put blinders on and forget that there are civil wars going on.

If a violent act towards a woman takes place, and the inspiration for that act is violence in cinema, the inspiration for that act would have come from somewhere else if movies didn’t exist.
Love is the motivating principle by which the Lord leads us along the way towards becoming like Him, our perfect example. Our way of life, hour by hour, must be filled with the love of God and love for others. There is no surprise in that, since the Lord proclaimed those as the first and great commandments.
I definitely gravitate towards things like vegetables, chicken, brown rice, but I don’t deprive myself of anything. If I want a Sprinkles cupcake, I’m having a Sprinkles cupcake. But I’m not going to have one every day… you just have to have a sensible outlook on all of it.
I put forward a pretty general theory that financial markets are intrinsically unstable. That we really have a false picture when we think about markets tending towards equilibrium.

I am geared towards communicating on a female level.

The world calls for, and expects from us, simplicity of life, the spirit of prayer, charity towards all, especially towards the lowly and the poor, obedience and humility, detachment, and self-sacrifice.

It’s the individual effort of everybody working together towards a collective goal that causes real, effective change in America and in the world.
The first step towards philosophy is incredulity.
Obviously I’d love to work with any of these great directors because every time I’ve worked with them I’ve gained a tremendous amount as an actor. Each director has his own way of pushing you towards improving yourself.
They are more human and more brotherly towards one another, it seems to me, than we are. But perhaps that is merely because they feel themselves to be more unfortunate than us.
Kids of this day and age know you don’t necessarily have to specialize in one sport no matter how much society and your coaches are pushing you towards that.
I probably prefer comedy. Why? I’m not sure. I feel like the energy of a comedy is a better fit for me. I try to be a happy guy! It seems that most of my life has the energy more for a comedy than for drama. I’m grateful to do both, but I would have to lean towards the comedy side of acting.
The actions of the terrorist organizations, Hezbollah, in Lebanon, and Hamas, in Gaza, against Israel are unconscionable. Instead of working towards peace, these terrorist organizations have chosen to perpetuate the violence.
Dreams from 1991 are becoming reality. We will build good relations between nations and people. We will strive towards mutual respect and equality of every individual, sex, race and national or any other minority.
The last scene in ‘Moonlight,’ that’s one of the most extraordinary things I’ve ever seen on film in my lifetime. You see two men showing such tenderness towards each other. And it’s bold; it’s deep. It’s complex. It’s profound.
How does it become a man to behave towards the American government today? I answer, that he cannot without disgrace be associated with it.
The constant effort towards population, which is found even in the most vicious societies, increases the number of people before the means of subsistence are increased.
I could have easily carved out a niche, but I realised that Saira Banu the actress can be replaced, but nobody can substitute my duty towards my family.
My children are my children. There’s no doubt about that at all. They’re very strong towards me, very protective, and I towards them. It works both ways.
The moral and social aspiration proper to American life is, of course, the aspiration vaguely described by the word democratic; and the actual achievement of the American nation points towards an adequate and fruitful definition of the democratic ideal.
I believe that it is my responsibility as the prime minister of Israel to do whatever can be done to exploit the unique opportunities that lie ahead of us to move towards peace. Not everything can be done by one act.
The only time I had what you would call life-threatening fear was when I was on the Moon. Towards the end of our stay, we got excited and we were going to do the high jump, and I jumped and fell over backwards. That was a scary time, because if the backpack got broken, I would have had it. But everything held together.
I actually do think you’re seeing this trend towards organizations just caring more about their brand and engaging. And so I think Home Depot will want to humanize itself. I think that’s a lot of why companies are starting blogs, are just giving more insight into what’s going on with them.
Young Evangelicals, especially, are breaking ranks with older Evangelicals (over 40) and are more and more leaning towards voting Democratic.
The best thanks we could offer those who went before and raised the Irish working class from their knees was to press forward with determination and enthusiasm towards the ultimate goal of their efforts, a Co-operative Commonwealth for Ireland.
I know my strengths. Painfully aware of the weaknesses. There’s many. I love sports. So working towards a common goal, that’s exciting to me.
My father’s drinking was sometimes a problem. And a great deal went unspoken. He was not particularly acute or articulate about the emotions. But he was very affectionate towards me.
Healthy children are born from healthy, respected, well-nourished and educated mothers and it is imperative that they have a voice in the decisions which affect them. If you empower a mother and let her have her say towards a poverty-free future, the positive impact this would have on ending hunger will be immense.
There’s a part of me that’s trying to represent kids that don’t necessarily have the same outlet that I have. I’m not looking towards a new demographic. I’m looking towards the demographic I came from.
I fall in love with contradictions without understanding. I can’t really portray them unless I do. So in a roundabout way I have to fall in love, it’s my duty. If love is about understanding and understanding is compassion and compassion is love, I have to have compassion towards the world.
People respond in accordance to how you relate to them. If you approach them on the basis of violence, that’s how they’ll react. But if you say, ‘We want peace, we want stability,’ we can then do a lot of things that will contribute towards the progress of our society.
If what you are doing is not moving you towards your goals, then it’s moving you away from your goals.
I would get bullied a lot. You know, it was the ’70s and ’80s, so it was a lot of racism back then towards Indian people. And it wasn’t actual hatred, it was just that blind, ‘Let’s pick on that guy.’ You know, and you’ve got to figure that I was a very small kid. And I had a big mouth, so I’m sure that didn’t help.
That religious earnestness forever tends toward fright and hence towards brittleness and inquisition is clear enough in mythology and history.
We are moving towards a world that is reordering itself and that may appear more ordered at some periods of time, but I see no sign that we are moving towards a world order in my definition of it – namely, a system which is accepted, which is internalized by the majority of the key participants.
There is a place in this world for satire, but there is a time when satire ends and intolerance and bigotry towards religious beliefs of others begins.
China once again disgusts the world, portraying the image of a cruel, perverted people devoid of any feelings towards animals.

How can you contribute towards building the Indian society and the Indian nation? No better way than to upgrade the quality of young people in school, particularly the schools which are run by the state government in the villages.
When I hear anything derogatory towards the Raiders, I am definitely hurt.
I’m not sure that ‘Iron Man’ is a superhero movie. I think towards the end of the movie, Iron Man pretends to be a superhero – he’s entertained by that notion. I think ‘X-Men’ is a sci-fi movie.
I’m always drawn towards the darker stuff, because I think it’s just a lot more interesting. But it’s also good fun doing the comedy, and I think that’s why ‘Misfits‘ has been great in that way, as you get a really good balance. I think it’s best to try and do everything as an actor, really.
There tends to be a jealousy in England towards countries that are successful.
No, we always had something to do because I did all the wave runners and jet skis and boats approaching the atolls and stuff like that, so you could do that without showing the actual atoll or the set that you’re going towards, but detailing all those guys racing towards it.
My daughter is the most normal towards me. For her, I am just her mom. I am just a regular mom, and the actor comes after that. If she likes something that I am wearing, she tells me, and if she doesn’t, she still makes it a point to let me know.
I regard many of the neoconservatives as personal friends, but that’s not stopped them from behaving with extraordinary viciousness towards those of us who raised the immigration issue.

On March 10, 1764, preliminary resolutions passed the House of Commons looking towards the Stamp Act.
Knowing that you’re all in for a championship and you have that mindset and feel throughout the group. Every day it’s working towards something. That’s an exciting feeling to know when you walk in the gym, or in the weight room, it’s for a championship.
General Zia-ul-Haq, a dictator and unscrupulous political actor, used Islam as a pretext for waging war in Afghanistan and adopting an aggressive stance towards India. By advancing a more orthodox version of Islam, he was able to hold on to a repressive regime and quell any opposition.
Sinn Fein has demonstrated the ability to play a leadership role as part of a popular movement towards peace, equality and justice.
In Scotland over many years we have cultivated through our justice system what I hope can be described as a ‘culture of compassion.’ On the other hand, there still exists in many parts of the U.S., if not nationally, an attitude towards the concept of justice which can only be described as a ‘culture of vengeance.’
Towards the end of 2003 it was hard to get through training – and the darkest point was when a doctor told me there was a possibility I could end up in a wheelchair.
Girls like Diana Spencer, armed with nothing more than a guinea-pig-rearing certificate, proud to say in that old Sloane way that she was ‘as thick as two short planks,’ became the exception as girls from Benenden and Downe House started to fast-track towards the City and law, consultancy, media and the arts.
I do sort of gravitate towards smaller, indie-type movies.
In the history of the treatment of depression, there was the dunking stool, purging of the bowels of black bile, hoses, attempts to shock the patient. All of these represent hatred or aggression towards what depression represents in the patient.
Question every assumption and go towards the problem, like the way they flew to the moon. We should have more moon shots and flights to the moon in areas of societal importance.
I think at the end of a show, you have to walk out with a message. That’s my hardest struggle right now; that’s what I’m working towards.
Too many athletes don’t have the ability to set a goal and then carefully go towards it.
She bowed her head, clasping her hands tightly before her upon the arm of his chair, for her heart yearned towards him, yet could not reach him, and it made her throat ache with unhappiness to meet that look of his that rested on her face without seeing it.
I’m very manipulative towards directors. My theory is that everyone on the set is directing the film, we’re all receiving art messages from the universe on how we should do the film.
Managers have different leadership styles and ways to go about their business. But in the end it doesn’t matter if the manager is old-fashioned, old school or always looking towards the future.
I have often thought that one of the less attractive traits of various professional bodies and institutions is the deeply ingrained suspicion and outright hostility which can exist towards anything unorthodox or unconventional.
I still take photographs for my own use, personal studies. I do not feel that I can fully express my views through the medium and this is why I have moved towards painting.
I have a tendency to lean towards a more retro look.
Rwanda really did take very strong steps towards development. I mean, this place is unrecognizable. There’s a very good management of economy and resources – it’s a success story, and that’s great.
The United States tax system today is very prejudiced towards financialization, leverage, and lack of investment.
I’m taking a bit of a wait-and-see attitude towards 3D.
Your body must become familiar with its death – in all its possible forms and degrees – as a self-evident, imminent, and emotionally neutral step on the way towards the goal you have found worthy of your life.
When reality television really hit, I just had a backlash towards reality. It seemed like a cheap way to make a product. And then when music reality and ‘Idol hit,’ I just didn’t watch it, it seemed novelty. And of course the story of ‘Idol,’ this is one of the greatest stories in television history.
It is only through the opposition of ideas that we can learn to be self-critical, to work towards intellectual humility.
They are just 100 per cent bear, whereas human beings feel we’re not 100 per cent human, that we’re always letting ourselves down. We’re constantly striving towards something, to some fulfilment.
From the beginning to the end of a drama, it’s most important that I’m focused on the project that I’m responsible for and feel affection towards it. Then I get faith that the project will end up being good before getting fully engaged in it.
To be a human being means to possess a feeling of inferiority which constantly presses towards its own conquest. The greater the feeling of inferiority that has been experienced, the more powerful is the urge for conquest and the more violent the emotional agitation.
Intelligent policies will be largely self-regulating in the sense that the system of incentives and standards makes it absolutely ludicrous to not move towards clean, internalized systems of cost and production.
Each of us has a vision of good and of evil. We have to encourage people to move towards what they think is good… Everyone has his own idea of good and evil and must choose to follow the good and fight evil as he conceives them. That would be enough to make the world a better place.
Everyone in our society has had to make a contribution towards dealing with the debts.
My biggest concern is that America is drifting towards mediocrity and that people don’t recognize – and by people I’m meaning Washington – don’t recognize the sense of urgency and the fact that I don’t think this is a crisis anymore. I think it’s an emergency.
I love rehearsing because in rehearsals there are no mistakes, nothing is wrong, some things apply or lead you to focus on the character and the things that don’t apply are equally valuable because they lead you to towards what does.
Our objective must therefore be to ensure EU better regulation contributes towards delivering a modern European Union which relentlessly focuses on building a dynamic and innovative economy equipped to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
Trajectories aren’t linear. Life’s just a roller coaster. If you’re getting a chance to do cool stuff, and it’s varied stuff, just enjoy it. I guess I’m a believer in the randomness of life rather than it being a linear trajectory or an arc, a consistent smooth arc, towards anything.
I love theater work because of the immediate effect your performance has on the audience. And I love the repetition; I love getting on the same stage for more than a month and reciting the same lines, trying to make a small or large step towards an improvement in my acting.
I certainly was an actor and then I drifted more towards writing and directing.
Just be yourself. Be honest, work towards a goal, and you’ll achieve it.
There was a moment in time where I was really focused on the Navy and I followed through with it – I passed the test. I was happy with myself because I was accomplishing something and I was really working towards a goal. That was the first true thing I invested my energy in.
I like doing small parts, because I don’t feel I’m that practised in acting. It’s like making baby steps towards a bigger goal.
I’m on Governor Gray Davis‘ California Alliance Towards Education to bring the arts back to high schools.
The Philippines must ensure that it adopts, as much as possible, an equi-balancing strategy towards both China and America. To push back against Chinese adventurism by deepening Philippine dependence on another power runs counter to the very logic of protecting its national sovereignty.
Fix your eyes on perfection and you make almost everything speed towards it.
Being a creative person, I’m naturally drawn towards art of any kind. But I’m more attracted to paintings because they radiate an aura of their own.
Until Genevieve I had tended towards the more dramatic type of role.
No one was going to stop me from writing and no one had to really guide me towards science fiction. It was natural, really, that I would take that interest.

A jury of my countrymen, it is true, have found me guilty of the crime of which I stood indicted. For this I entertain not the slightest feeling of resentment towards them.

The last thing a director needs is an actress who feels an ownership towards a particular character.

I’ve always turned my anger inwards towards self-destruction.
Religion has endured since the dawn of human consciousness precisely because it encompasses so much of being human. No idea has endured so long, gathered up so many disparate needs and wants and feelings, and inspired so many different paths towards understanding it.

Democracy is not merely a form of government. It is primarily a mode of associated living, of conjoint communicated experience. It is essentially an attitude of respect and reverence towards fellow men.
Prolonged, indiscriminate reviewing of books is a quite exceptionally thankless, irritating and exhausting job. It not only involves praising trash but constantly inventing reactions towards books about which one has no spontaneous feeling whatever.
I am dominated by one thing, an irresistible, burning attraction towards the abstract.
A diplomatic peace is not yet the real peace. It is an essential step in the peace process leading towards a real peace.
There are individuals who are working very hard to promote fear and antagonism towards Islam and Muslims in this country. It’s fueled, in part, by the first African-American president that we have. Obama’s father was a Muslim and people have used this to arouse hostility against him.

The basis of drama is… the struggle of the hero towards a specific goal at the end of which he realises that what kept him from it was, in the lesser drama, civilisation and, in the great drama, the discovery of something that he did not set out to discover but which can be seen retrospectively as inevitable.
We must work towards solutions that make housing, transportation, the workforce, and higher education more equitable.

My feelings towards the newspapers are very affectionate.
Henceforth, language studies were no longer directed merely towards correcting grammar.
The meaning of things lies not in the things themselves, but in our attitude towards them.

Mental health is an issue ailing everyone – it is so omnipresent in society, we must work towards making it better.

A little of what you call frippery is very necessary towards looking like the rest of the world.

The service of philosophy, of speculative culture, towards the human spirit, is to rouse, to startle it to a life of constant and eager observation.
With the theatre, your whole day is geared towards the evening‘s show, and that’s the job. People usually go to work about 9 and come home around 5, or maybe 7.
There’s always going to be cliques – everywhere you go, there’s gonna be cliques; there’s gonna be people that gravitate towards each other.
Let’s stop telling people from modest backgrounds that their education is capped at a certain level because of where they grew up. In fact I can attest to the fact that all this attitude does is put people off wanting to test the waters and apply, or push themselves towards higher education at all.
I think that one of the reasons why people look towards the end of humanity is that people are afraid to die alone. If you die alone, the people you love will miss you, or if they die, you miss them – the sorrow is inevitable. When you truly love someone, the thought of losing them forever is horrible.
In searching for a rationale to go to war, Bush settled on the notion of Saddam as an incarnation of evil, basically, and convinced himself that Saddam was fundamentally Adolf Hitler reborn. I think his feelings towards Saddam were in fact quite genuine and quite legitimately hostile. He was not play acting.
Every year, my family and I would go visit my mom’s family in Texas. We would drive from Chicago to Texas, and once we started to get towards San Antonio, everyone looked like me! It was such a great feeling. Everyone had the same brown skin that I did.

You don’t really get to pick and chose what you would like to be doing. But I’ve been very fortunate, and I think water seeks its own level. You do gravitate towards things that you would get off on.
Since childhood I’ve always had a tendency to lean towards melancholy. My sisters suffer from it too, so maybe it’s a genetic thing. But none of us has ever been on medication.

It’s wonderful to feel supported, but there’s a lot of negative energy towards me as well. So I ignore it, to be honest. If I started to read it all it would completely mess up my head.
Conversations with my mother, father, my grandparents, as I’ve grown up have obviously driven me towards wanting to try and make a difference as much as possible.

Well my briefing was that Honduras was a small and vulnerable country just back on the path towards democracy it was about to have just before I arrived, the first elections for a civilian president in more than 9 years.

Even your most talented employees have room for growth in some area, and you’re doing your employee a disservice if the sum of your review is: ‘You’re great!’ No matter how talented the employee, think of ways he could grow towards the position he might want to hold two, five, or 10 years down the line.
Always trust the process. I’m a firm believer in that. You know, you keep your eyes on the destination, and of course there will always be detours, but if you’re moving towards it, you will always get there.
I had read an article about a couple who had developed a private forest in Coorg, and were working towards preserving it.

But Jesus changes your attitude towards yourself and towards other people.
I’m getting more towards that point where I’m ready to kind of pass the torch on and see the next generation succeed behind me.

My habit would have been to veer towards the dark – to prove I was something; edgy, or maybe to prove that I was cognisant of the dark side.

I have always tried to live by the philosophy that when there is a big problem that needs fixing, you should run towards it, rather than away from it.
The whole drive of western culture, the part of it which is serious, is towards an extreme objectification. It’s carried to the point where the human subject is treated almost as if it’s dirt in the works of a watch.
Through art and science in their broadest senses it is possible to make a permanent contribution towards the improvement and enrichment of human life and it is these pursuits that we students are engaged in.

They have just succeeded in raising the two thousand pounds here, by subscription, that was wanted towards an exploration fund, for fitting out an expedition, that will probably start for the interior of our continent next March.
I was raised by a lady that was crippled all her life but she did everything for me and she raised me. She washed our clothes, cooked our food, she did everything for us.

As to my success here I cannot say much as yet: the Indians seem generally kind, and well-disposed towards me, and are mostly very attentive to my instructions, and seem willing to be taught further.

You can’t go fighting everyone that’s harsh towards you.
If you are striving to have more happiness in your life, it helps to guide your mind towards starting to recognize what are selfish motivations and what are constructive motivations.
I always wanted to be in Bollywood and the first step towards that was by participating in school plays. I would get awards for my acting and that motivated me to get into Bollywood.
Our goals, our dreams and ambitions have always been towards performing live music across the globe, and so when we were told we were performing at The Billboard Awards or being nominated for a VMA, they’re like extra bonuses.
Chemistry itself knows altogether too well that – given the real fear that the scarcity of global resources and energy might threaten the unity of mankind – chemistry is in a position to make a contribution towards securing a true peace on earth.
I love working with the same actors repeatedly. That happens a lot. It’s kind of inevitable, especially if you work with the same writers and directors and you start to form a company of actors. You gravitate towards each other.
And in this community, as in all others, the Golden Rule still applies – we must be act toward other nations as we would have them act towards America.
I went to the premiere of The Detective with Sinatra, and perhaps people jumped to conclusions. He was very protective towards me and never came on to me sexually.
There is one common thing in superstars – enthusiasm and humility towards their work. Off sets, they are big stars for others, and they carry themselves the way they want to. When they are working, they are not stars.
I saw Tina Turner do ‘Proud Mary’ on TV, and it was so electrifying and such a unique experience. I remember crying out of excitement, and I knew that I wanted to be a performer and make people feel excited and moved, and that’s why I gravitated towards it.
Then as I got older, I always gravitated towards the hard stuff, Born To Be Wild, then Black Sabbath.
For the United States to recommit itself to the obligation that we undertook in the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty that many other states undertook, which was to work towards disarmament and the eventual elimination of nuclear weapons, is something that manifestly serves our national security interests.
A fitting external security environment could also play an important role in promoting social consensus and institutionalization towards democratization.
I quite like the drama of an encore. I think an encore is for those artists who are inclined to do dramatic gestures, and I certainly would say I am inclined towards them.
My plays are always pushing towards cinema anyway. They’re down and dirty, real and more fun.
All the evidence that we have indicates that it is reasonable to assume in practically every human being, and certainly in almost every newborn baby, that there is an active will toward health, an impulse towards growth, or towards the actualization.
I love Madonna! If you want to see the Madonna I know, just go on YouTube and you’ll see those early interviews before the record came out. She was giddy and wonderful and giggly and happy and so excited looking towards the future.
As an American people, what is greatest about our history are the many times we have led this world away from hate, towards hope.
After you’ve done it for so many years, you have to find a new direction. You have to find something in your soul that’s going to push you towards – to find your inspiration.
I sincerely want to help create beauty in the world and move a culture of separateness back towards community. I really, really do, and I think art is a powerful way of doing that.
We are pushing towards the dream of having our independent state with Jerusalem as its capital. If there is a real project that aims to resolve the Palestinian cause on establishing a Palestinian state on 1967 borders, under full Palestinian sovereignty, we will support it.
In the globalized world that is ours, maybe we are moving towards a global village, but that global village brings in a lot of different people, a lot of different ideas, lots of different backgrounds, lots of different aspirations.
I was always taught as a kid that if there’s anything you want in life, you’ve got to work towards it. I guess that sort of stayed with me, really. But also, for me, from the time I was, like, 10 years old, all I ever wanted to do was be in a band and make music.
Our attitude toward life determines life’s attitude towards us.
For good or for ill, Britain is in some respects moving away from a prime-ministerial system towards a presidential one. This is emphatically not, as is sometimes argued, simply a function of Tony Blair‘s personal ambition. The shift towards a more presidential style was already visible under Margaret Thatcher.
Making a Christmas album is looked upon by some people as the thing you do when you are heading towards retirement.
As we move towards 8 or 10 billion people on the planet, there’s a little less gold per capita. Each one of us will continue to be fighting over an ever smaller percentage of total resources. This is not a happy thought.
Crisis and pressure help foster change – that’s why I’m not so pessimistic towards crises.
I miss ‘EastEnders.’ I loved it. But I was exhausted when I left. They asked me to go back recently – they’ve asked a few times. I am tempted! But my husband Scott says you have to really think about it. Because, towards the end, I was so exhausted and not sleeping at night. I’m not quite ready for it.
I think the best way I can repay the supporters for their kindness towards me, and for all that love, support and appreciation, is to score goals and win trophies for them.
If you look at my career, towards the end you will see I was fighting like once a year. I was not part of the Don King top heavyweights, so I was kind of kept out. His guys were getting three to four fights a year and I could only get one.
When I have had such men before my camera my whole soul has endeavored to do its duty towards them in recording faithfully the greatness of the inner as well as the features of the outer man. The photograph thus taken has been almost the embodiment of a prayer.
I consider myself a good person. And I think people perceive me to be, ‘Oh, she’s nice,’ but being a good person, knowing your strengths and working towards those strengths, and encouraging those around you to do the same, that’s a good person.
Going meatless reduces our carbon footprint and helps us lead the way towards climate change.
There were theoretical elements in the subjection of women and it is not possible to avoid the conclusion that a large contribution was made to them by the Church. In part this was a matter of its hostile stance towards sexuality.
