Mr Rogers Quotes By Marion L. Soards

The tendency is to view God as a cosmic ogre, bound and determined to administer well-deserved punishment; or we envision God as an eternal Mr. Rogers, eager to welcome us all to the neighborhood of the Kingdom.....Jesus however, lived with the dynamic tension of God's wrath and grace; in fact he embodied the paradox. — Marion L. Soards

Mr Rogers Quotes By Annie Rogers

Lacan wrote about two levels of speaking, one in which we know what we are saying (even when struggling with something difficult or contradictory) and another in which we have no idea of what we are saying.

He called such markers in speech 'signifiers. — Annie Rogers

Mr Rogers Quotes By Kristin Cashore

I meditate, and when I do, Prince Harry appears in my subconscious and meditates with me. It's a little strange but I don't think there's anything I can do about it. Sometimes he's not the only one; the other day it was me, Prince Harry, the Dalai Lama, Mr. Rogers, Coco the gorilla, and George Clooney. We were all floating above the earth looking down at the continents as they passed. George Clooney suggested I visit Providence, Rhode Island. The Dalai Lama sighed deeply and said he'd like to visit Tibet.
Poor Dalai Lama. — Kristin Cashore

Mr Rogers Quotes By Tim Gunn

Whether they come from Brooks Brothers or a thrift store, the sweaters we wear have a magnificent ancestry.

By being aware of it, we can better appreciate what we have. — Tim Gunn

Mr Rogers Quotes By Sarah Silverman

I do enjoy and feel compelled to talk about things that are taboo. One, because I think I'm a troublemaker inside, if someone says, "Don't say that," it's all I want to say. And also, something I learned in therapy ... which is darkness can't exist in the light, and then that made me think of something that Mr. Rogers said, which is, "If it's mentionable, it's manageable." — Sarah Silverman

Mr Rogers Quotes By Rachael Leigh Cook

Mr Rogers Quotes By Carl Rogers

So, as you can readily see from what I have said thus far, a creative, active, sensitive, accurate, empathic, nonjudgmental listening is for me terribly important in a relationship. It is important for me to provide it; it has been extremely important, especially at certain times in my life, to receive it. I feel that I have grown within myself when I have provided it; I am very sure that I have grown and been released and enhanced when I have received this kind of listening. — Carl Rogers

Mr Rogers Quotes By Nick Pageant

Tony looked me up and down appraisingly. I have to say he didn't look disappointed or anything. He actually looked a little intrigued. "You gotta be Mason, the guy who called from the library."
"How can you tell?"

Mr Rogers Quotes By Hunter S. Thompson

Why are we seeing George Bush on TV every two hours for nine or ten days at a time, like some kind of mutated Mr. Rogers clone?

Thompson

Mr Rogers Quotes By Steven Goldman

Mr. Rogers might have liked me just the way I am, but I certainly don't. — Steven Goldman

Mr Rogers Quotes By Carl Rogers

There is another peculiar satisfaction in really hearing someone: It is like listening to the music of the spheres, because beyond the immediate message of the person, no matter what that might be, there is the universal. Hidden in all of the personal communications which I really hear there seem to be orderly psychological laws, aspects of the same order we find in the universe as a whole. So there is both the satisfaction of hearing this person and also the satisfaction of feeling one's self in touch with what is universally true. — Carl Rogers

Mr Rogers Quotes By Lina Wertmuller

When I was young, I ran to see Astaire and Rogers, Huston, Lubitsch - they were formative for me. I also read 'Flash Gordon' when I was 6, but if I were still reading it when I was 16, I'd have been an imbecile. — Lina Wertmuller

Mr Rogers Quotes By Rosemary Rogers

Oh, he'd be back all right! Giving her the last laugh before she moved out. And that was why she hadn't moved out yet. Just knowing she could, anytime she wanted to, made all the difference, of course. She'd just wait for him to succumb one more time, that was all. One more time
proving to him that he still wanted her before she disappeared out of his life for good. — Rosemary Rogers

Mr Rogers Quotes By Fred Rogers

She was doing everything I was doing, but just like Ginger Rogers, it was backwards in heels. — Barack Obama

Mr Rogers Quotes By Will Rogers

Candidates have been telling you that if elected they would 'pull you from this bog hole of financial misery.' Now is a good chance to get even with 'em, by electing 'em, just to prove what a liar they are. — Will Rogers

Mr Rogers Quotes By Prince Rogers Nelson

Money does not pay for happiness,
But it will pay for the search! — Prince Rogers Nelson

Mr Rogers Quotes By Will Rogers

Politics are receiving a lot of attention because we have nothing else to interest us. No nation in the history of the world was ever sitting as pretty.

But we are certainly not thinking about that this early. — Will Rogers

Mr Rogers Quotes By Adrian Rogers

Mr Rogers Quotes By Richard Rogers

Form follows profit is the aesthetic principle of our times. — Richard Rogers

Mr Rogers Quotes By Adam Rogers

The miracle of yeast is awesome enough to strain credulity. It's a fungus, a naturally occurring nanotechnological machine that converts sugar to the alcohol we drink. It breeds pretty much everywhere and is one of the organisms on which scientists have built much of our knowledge of how life works . . . and, postscript, it also makes possible the baking of bread. — Adam Rogers

Mr Rogers Quotes By Kenny Rogers

It is difficult to get played at my age on the radio. — Kenny Rogers

Mr Rogers Quotes By D.E. Rogers

So many of us get caught up into the race game that we forget that in the end we are just people trying to do better for ourselves and our families. My father use to have a saying, that in order to be great you have to do great things that change the world of people around you. — D.E. Rogers

Mr Rogers Quotes By Will Rogers

I have often said in answer to inquiries as to how I got away with kidding some of our public men, that it was because I liked all of them personally, and that if there was no malice in your heart there could be none in your "Gags", and I have always said I never met a man I dident like. — Will Rogers

Mr Rogers Quotes By Rogers Hornsby

I always tried to hit the ball back through the box because that is the largest unprotected area. — Rogers Hornsby

Mr Rogers Quotes By Will Rogers

The worst thing that happens to you may be the best thing for you if you don't let it get the best of you. — Will Rogers

Mr Rogers Quotes By John Rogers Searle

With Derrida, you can hardly misread him, because he's so obscure. Every time you say, "He says so and so," he always says, "You misunderstood me." But if you try to figure out the correct interpretation, then that's not so easy. I once said this to Michel Foucault, who was more hostile to Derrida even than I am, and Foucault said that Derrida practiced the method of obscurantisme terroriste (terrorism of obscurantism). We were speaking French. And I said, "What the hell do you mean by that?" And he said, "He writes so obscurely you can't tell what he's saying, that's the obscurantism part, and then when you criticize him, he can always say, 'You didn't understand me; you're an idiot.' That's the terrorism part." And I like that. So I wrote an article about Derrida. I asked Michel if it was OK if I quoted that passage, and he said yes. — John Rogers Searle
