The skin doesn’t make them who they are.’

Those of us who believe in God and derive our sense of right and wrong and ethics from God’s Word really have no difficulty whatsoever defining where our ethics come from.

The government is supposed to conform to our will.

This is not the direction that we want the government to go in this nation.

The mind controls so much of the body. We are much more than flesh and blood; we are complex systems. Patients do better when they have faith that they’re going to do better. That’s why I always tell my patients and their families not to neglect their prayers. There’s nobody I don’t say that to.

We need to find ways to elevate the expectations, particularly of those individuals who may start off on a lower socioeconomic rung, who might be seen as disadvantaged. But, you know, the reason I say be seen as disadvantaged, it’s because life is so short, and there’s so much that can change.

Ben Carson Quotes About Tax System

What I agree with is that we need a significantly changed taxation system. And the one that I’ve advocated is based on tithing, because I think God is a pretty fair guy. And he said, you know, if you give me a tithe, it doesn’t matter how much you make.

dr ben carson quotes 18 contribution

What we have to remember is we want to utilize the tremendous intellect that we have in the military to win wars.

What you’re saying is that ‘I, the superior elite, will take care of you.’ Why? Because, you see, that superior, elite group needs to feel superior and elite.

When I entered high school I was an A-student, but not for long. I wanted the fancy clothes. I wanted to hang out with the guys. I went from being an A-student to a B-student to a C-student, but I didn’t care. I was getting the high fives and the low fives and the pats on the back. I was cool.

You know, I’m a physician. I like to diagnose things. And, you know, I’ve diagnosed some pretty, pretty significant issues that I think a lot of people resonate with.

You know, many people have said that I’m on the edge and I’m maverick for some of the big operations that I’ve done. I’m not at all. I pray; I ask God to give me wisdom, ‘Should I do it?’, guidance in terms of how to do it, who to consult with. All those kind of things are incredibly important.

If we don’t empower families to be able to have a quality education, then their children – for the first time in American history, truly the first time – will not have the same economic opportunities

I get tired of hearing people, well-meaning people, talking about African-American kids or Hispanic kids as if they’re all the same. Which isn’t true. There is a very diverse group of people in both groups in terms of income, objectives in life, aspirations, cultural wants, habits, all the things that make us unique Americans.

jeb bush quotes 3

I had the chance to be governor for eight years and I took a year to transition out and a year to transition in, so that’s a decade of my life where I pursued my own ambitions and I thought it was time to rearrange my life to focus on other things.

I loved being governor. It was a blast. Eight years was enough. But it was certainly one of the greatest thrills in my life to be able to serve the people of Florida. I miss that from time to time.

I think my dad’s post-presidency, he didn’t miss a beat. He didn’t get into any kind of ‘Woe is me.’ He dusted himself off and led an incredible life since 1993.

If I decide to run for office again, it will be based on what I believe, and it will be based on my record. And that record was one of solving problems completely from a conservative prospective.

If I’m a conservative, I’ll generally watch Fox. If someone’s liberal, they’ll generally watch MSNBC. They’ll basically learn a set of facts that are completely distinct from one another. They’ll get their views validated.

If we are going to compete in this world we’re in today, there is no possible way we can do it with lowering expectations and dumbing down everything. Children are going to suffer, and families’ hearts are going to be broken that their kids won’t be able to get a job in the 21st Century.

My record as a pro-life governor is not in dispute. I am completely pro-life, and I believe that we should have a culture of life. It’s informed by my faith from beginning to end. And this not just as it related to unborn babies – I did it at the end of life issues as well. This is something that goes way beyond politics.

My wife is not a public person. She is uncomfortable with the limelight, which is why I love her. I don’t want a political wife – I want someone who, when I get home, I can have a normal life with.

Jeb Bush Quotes About Job Creation

Our economy grew at double the rate of the nation. We created 1.3 million jobs. We led the nation seven out of those eight years. We were only one of two states that went to AAA bond rating. I cut taxes, $19 billion. If you do that and apply conservative principles the right way, you create an environment where everybody rises up.

The difference today is that increasingly they are in perpetual poverty.

There should be a path to earned legal status for those that are here. Not – not amnesty – earned legal status, which means you pay a fine and do many things over an extended period of time.

We had rising student achievement across the board because high standards, robust accountability, ending social promotion in third grade, real school choice across the board, challenging the teachers union and beating them is the way to go.

You tell me which society is going to be the winner in this 21st Century: One that worries about how we feel or the one that worries about making sure that the next generation has the capacity to eat everybody’s lunch.

30 Powerful Dragon Ball Anime Quotes from Frieza

Anime Quotes from Frieza

There are three things I refuse to tolerate. Cowardice. Bad haircuts, and military insurrection. And it is unfortunate that our friend Vegeta possesses all three of these.

I doubt I need an introduction, but just in case, I am the mighty Frieza and yes, all the horrible stories you’ve heard are true.

[Talking to Zarbon about Dodoria] Forget him. If he isn’t capable of dealing with two puny pests and a baby Namek, then I don’t want him back. Continue your search for the last two dragonballs.

[About Vegeta] Miserable Saiyan monkey.

Crazy Quotes from Frieza

Frieza in His 1st Form

Take note Zarbon. Because you can expect the same to happen to you if you don’t find out where that dragonball is. Do you understand? That is the price of careless mistakes. You had better hope for your sake that Vegeta is alive.

You should’ve gone in after him Zarbon. Now we can’t confirm anything just because you didn’t want to get wet. That’s careless. And, it was careless to try and kill Vegeta before you even questioned him. How do you know he hadn’t already found a dragonball and hidden it?

These Saiyans are proving to be quite a thorn in my side. It seems the more they fight, the stronger they become. Of course, I’m still much more powerful than they are, but if they keep multiplying their strength, then who knows what they might be capable of in the future. Best to eliminate them now, before they get any stronger.

[To Zarbon] You’d better, because if you don’t find him (Vegeta) within the hour, you’ll wish you’d never been born!

It’s quite simple Captain Ginyu. Your mission is to recover my dragonballs and bring me Vegeta!

Once I have the dragonballs, it will make a nice fireworks display to celebrate my immortality. Ah yes, I’ll write the name of Frieza in lights across the galaxy.

[When Ginyu trying to dance] Uh, Ginyu, if you value your life…stop.

Before you begin your pathetic struggle to survive, I should warn you. Your chance of winning is nonexistent.

Observe. My left hand…it’s strength alone is enough to crush you like the little bug you are, so as a special one time bonus, today, I will fight you while my other hand is behind my back. So now that we’ve got the ground rules settled, shall we begin?

[To his scouter communicator] Ginyu Force, this is Frieza! Come in! Over! What…no! This can’t be! Where are my soldiers? Why aren’t they showing up on my scouter!? There’s no way Vegeta and those miserable little punks could take down the entire Ginyu Force! If they’re sleeping on the job, I will make them pay!

So you are the ones. Naughty. I don’t see how three shrimps and a burnt out Saiyan managed to defeat the Ginyu Force, but now it’s your turn. Don’t worry. It won’t hurt too bad. Really. Death is my specialty.

[To Vegeta] There doesn’t seem to be any power readings for the Ginyu Force. So it is true. Heh heh heh heh heh. Somehow, you wimps have managed to destroy the most elite fighting team in the universe. Ha ha. What a farce. I only wish that I could’ve been there to see the look on Ginyu’s face. Ha ha ha ha ha. What do ya say we get started…I know you are all anxious to resolve this dispute once and for all. I always knew that you would turn on me someday, Vegeta, but I never knew when. Now, I see that you were just waiting for the stakes to get high enough before you played your hand. A valiant effort but in the end it just didn’t work, now did it? I hope you’ve thoroughly enjoyed your little rebellion, because now its over my restless little warriors. Now you die. I should’ve done this a long time ago. You ruined everything you little scumbag. How dare you stick your nose in my affairs? I could’ve been immortal. I hate you!

Oh, you rude little ruffian. Please. I don’t choose my real form because my power is too radical to control. Heh heh heh heh heh heh heh.

Frieza Best Anime Quotes
Frieza 1st Transformation (2nd Form)

Oh, alright. Heh, I’ll bare it all. Heck, why not? Well, strap yourselves in. You’re in for one heck of a ride. Ha ha. Oh, and Vegeta, I want you to know that any remote chance you once had of winning is about to go flying out the window. Oh yeah, I almost forgot, I think it would be nice for somebody to give me a countdown.

Vegeta, it pains me to see you going through this. What a waste. I favored you so much. Why couldn’t you just continue to obey me?

The pain that you have caused me…I will return it ten-fold!

[Talking about Gohan] Don’t look so surprised Vegeta! I’ll be right with you, but first I must exterminate the mighty midget.

[To Piccolo] I suggest you go about your business Namekian. As of yet, I haven’t decided to kill you, but I’m real close. Now go before its too late. Please, it would ease my conscience knowing that I spared one of you.

You are quite the comedian Vegeta. If only the rest of your Saiyan people were around to see the brave prince Vegeta now, huh? But, ha ha ha ha ha ha ha…that really doesn’t matter, because I’ve got you cornered like a frightened little mouse. Oh, don’t worry, dear prince, I’m going to save you until I’ve taken care of your little Namek friend.

[About his 2nd transformation] Well, it looks like the tables have turned again my friend, and this time for the last time. So, are you ready for a taste of your demise? Because it’s coming up right now.

Vegeta, face it. To fight with me is futile and useless. Just wake up. You’re blind and delusional. You keep going on about being a Super Saiyan, but it’s just a myth Vegeta. I’ve never seen one, have you? You’re such a chump. Heh heh.

[To Goku] I’ve never met a sentimental Saiyan before. It’ll be your downfall.

[To Goku] Well, I’ve got to hand it to you. You’re the first one who’s ever hurt me besides my loving parents that is. Hm. It’s been so long since I felt pain. It’s such a strange sensation. What a rare case he is.

Anime Quotes from Frieza
Frieza in His Final Transformation

[About his final transformation] Don’t be glum. You should actually be flattered. I’ve never had to summon this much of my power to defeat someone. Fifty percent of my maximum. That’s all that’s required for this.

[Talking about Goku] Something is strange about this warrior. How does a Saiyan have such incredible power? They are, after all, inferior creatures. I’ve never met a figher with that kind of strength. Grrr…I must take him out now.

Amazing Quotes from Sherlock Holmes
Sherlock Holmes and Watson

Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent. We would not dare to conceive the things which are really mere commonplaces of existence. If we could fly out of that window hand in hand, hover over this great city, gently remove the roofs, and and peep in at the queer things which are going on, the strange coincidences, the plannings, the cross-purposes, the wonderful chains of events, working through generations, and leading to the most outre results, it would make all fiction with its conventionalities and foreseen conclusions most stale and unprofitable.

Now is the dramatic moment of fate, Watson, when you hear a step upon the stair which is walking into your life, and you know not whether for good or ill.

I am an omnivorous reader with a strangely retentive memory for trifles.

A complex mind. All great criminals have that.

Good old Watson! You are the one fixed point in a changing age.

Come, Watson, come! The game is afoot. Not a word! Into your clothes and come!

Let us hear the suspicions. I will look after the proofs.

Novel Quotes from Sherlock Holmes

Out of my last 53 cases 49 have been given full credit to the police and the rest to me.

If I were assured of your eventual destruction I would, in the interests of the public, cheerfully accept my own.

It is of the highest importance in the art of detection to be able to recognize, out of a number of facts, which are incidental and which vital. Otherwise your energy and attention must be dissipated instead of being concentrated.

Violence does, in truth, recoil upon the violent, and the schemer falls into the pit which he digs for another.

It is, of course, a trifle, but there is nothing so important as trifles.

50 Sir Alex Ferguson Quotes, The Most Successful Manchester United Manager

Manchester United winning English Premiere League

[After winning Champions League in 1999] Football… bloody hell.

[Half time team talk in 1999 Champions League Final] At the end of this game, the European Cup will be only six feet away from you, and you’ll not even able to touch it if we lose. And for many of you, that will be the closest you will ever get. Don’t you dare come back in here without giving your all.

You can’t applaud a referee.

At the last minute, from what I can gather, either Emmanuel Adebayor or his agent phoned us after they had agreed a deal with City and then did the same with Chelsea. He was desperate to get to either Chelsea or us.

[Talking about Manchester City] All they can talk about is Manchester United.

I’ve never played for a draw in my life.

Jose (Mourinho) understands winning and losing are twins in a way. When you win you don’t gloat and when you lose you don’t go bananas.

I don’t like losing but I’ve mellowed. I maybe have a short fuse but it goes away quicker now.

You must be joking. Do I look as if I’m a masochist ready to cut myself? How does relegation sound instead?

[About Wayne Rooney] Sometimes you look in a field and you see a cow and you think it’s a better cow than the one you’ve got in the field.

As with every young player, he’s only 18.

[To Paul Ince] You’re a fu****g bottler, Incey. You cannae handle the stage, can you?

[About Sir Matt Busby] I’m privileged to have followed Sir Matt because all you have to do is to try and maintain the standards that he set so many years ago.

Leadership Quotes from former Manchester United Manager
Arsene Wenger and Sir Alex Ferguson

To not apologise for the behaviour of the players to another manager is unthinkable. It’s a disgrace, but I don’t expect Wenger to ever apologise…he’s that type of person.

David Beckham is Britain’s finest striker of a football not because of God-given talent but because he practises with a relentless application that the vast majority of less gifted players wouldn’t contemplate.

[After losing to Tottenham at home] They gave us four minutes [injury time], that’s an insult to the game. It denies you a proper chance to win a football match. There were six substitutions, the trainer came on, so that’s four minutes right away and the goalkeeper must have wasted about two or three minutes and they took their time at every goal kick. That’s obvious to everyone today and it’s a flaw in the game that the referee is responsible for time keeping. It’s ridiculous that it’s 2012 and the referee still has control of that.

[About Dennis Wise] He could start a row in an empty house.

[About Sam Allardyce] He’ll be getting a hug and a kiss from me – maybe even two!

[1st Impressions of Jose Mourinho] He was certainly full of it, calling me “Boss” and “Big Man” when we had our post-match drink after the first leg. But it would help if his greetings were accompanied by a decent glass of wine. What he gave me was paint-stripper.

[About referee Alan Wiley] The pace of the game demanded a referee who was fit. It is an indictment of our game. You see referees abroad who are as fit as butcher’s dogs. We have some who are fit. He wasn’t fit. He was taking 30 seconds to book a player. He was needing a rest. It was ridiculous.

[After signing Wayne Rooney] Wayne is truly blessed. He doesn’t just have ability, he has a fire inside him.

[About Paul Ince] I used to have a saying that when a player is at his peak, he feels as though he can climb Everest in his slippers. That’s what he was like.

[After arguing with Peter Schmeichel] He was towering over me and the other players were almost covering their eyes. I’m looking up and thinking ‘if he does hit me, I’m dead’.

If ever there was one player, anywhere in the world, that was made for Manchester United, it was Cantona. He swaggered in, stuck his chest out, raised his head and surveyed everything as though he were asking: ‘I’m Cantona. How big are you? Are you big enough for me?

Pardew has come out and criticised me. He is the worst at haranguing referees. He shoves them and makes a joke of it. How he can criticise me is unbelievable. He forgets the help I gave him, by the way. The press have had a field day. The only person they have not spoken to is Barack Obama because he is busy. It is unfortunate but I am the manager of the most famous club in the world. Not Newcastle, a wee club in the North-East. I was demonstrative. I am always demonstrative. Everyone knows that. I am an emotional guy but I was not abusive.

[About Cristiano Ronaldo] I bet him he wouldn’t get 15 league goals and I’m going to have to change my bet with him. If he gets to 15 I can change it and I am allowed to do that because I’m the manager. I’m going to make it 150 now!

The Most Successful Manchester United Manager

All my staff stood by me, the players stood by me, you stood by me, and your job now is to stand by our new manager. That’s important. My retirement doesn’t mean the end of my time at the club. I’ll now be able to enjoy watching them, rather than suffering with them. But, if you think about it, the last-minute goals, the comebacks, even the defeats, are all part of this great football club of ours. It’s been an unbelievable experience for all of us, so thank-you for that. I want to say thank-you to Manchester United. Not just the directors, coaching staff, medical staff, the players, the fans, but to all of you – you have been the most fantastic experience of my life. I’ve been very fortunate. I have been able to manage some of the greatest players in the country, let alone Manchester United. All the players here today have represented this club the proper way. They won the championship in a fantastic fashion, so well done to the players. To the players, I wish them every success in the future. You all know how good you are, you know the jersey you are wearing, you know what it means to everyone here and don’t ever let yourselves down.
