Independent Quotes

There are four types of persons, the dead, who deny the Lord and declare that they alone exist, independent and self-directed, the sick, who call upon the Lord when some calamity befalls them or when they feel temporarily deserted by the unusual source of succor, the dull, who know that God is the eternal companion and watchman, but who remember it only off and on when the idea is potent and powerful, and lastly the healthy, who have steady belief in the Lord and who live in His Comforting Creative Presence always.

Sri Sathya Sai Baba

The Church, during the apostolic age, did not consist of isolated, independent congregations, but was one body, of which the separate churches were constituent members, each subject to all the rest, or to an authority which extended over all.

Charles Hodge

The mind of the greatest man on earth is not so independent of circumstances as not to feel inconvenienced by the merest buzzing noise about him; it does not need the report of a cannon to disturb his thoughts. The creaking of a vane or a pully is quite enough. Do not wonder that he reasons ill just now; a fly is buzzing by his ear; it is quite enough to unfit him for giving good counsel.

Blaise Pascal

Margaret J. Wheatley

All birds, even those of the same species are not alike, and it is the same with animals as with human beings.

Shooter Teton Sioux

That the principle and construction contended for by sundry of the state legislatures, that the general government is the exclusive judge of the extent of the powers delegated to it, stop nothing short of despotism; since the discretion of those who administer the government, and not the constitution, would be the measure of their powers: That the several states who formed that instrument, being sovereign and independent, have the unquestionable right to judge of its infraction; and that a nullification, by those sovereignties, of all unauthorized acts done under colour of that instrument, is the rightful remedy.

Thomas Jefferson

In much of the West, the well educated have been taught to believe that they can know nothing and that they can draw no independent conclusions about truth, unless they cite a study and \"experts\" have affirmed it. \"Studies show\" is to the modern secular college graduate what \"Scripture says\" is to the religious fundamentalist.

Dennis Prager

John D. Rockefeller

Every human has four endowments- self awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom... The power to choose, to respond, to change.

In liberal democracy and anxious anarchy, the traditional classic dance, compact of aristocratic authority and absolute freedom in a necessity of order, has never been so promising as an independent expression as it is today.

Lincoln Kirstein

If it was a truly independent board, I'd be happier about it. As it is now, it creates the illusion that both parties in the state are of equal strength and that's not the case.

Paul Berendt

We are the men of intrinsic value, who can strike our fortunes out of ourselves, whose worth is independent of accidents in life, or revolutions in government: we have heads to get money, and hearts to spend it

George Farquhar

It is difficult to know whether an independent Macedonian state would have come into existence had Tito not recognised and supported the development of Macedonian ethnicity as oart of his ethnically organised Yugoslavia. He did this as a counter to Bulgaria, which for centuries had a historical claim on the area as far west as Lake Ohrid and the present border of Albania.

Eugene N. Borza
