Top Weber Quotes

Weber Quotes By Don W. Weber

As he settled in, he assessed the way he felt with one of his favorite phrases from Mark Twain - the calm confidence of a Christian holding four aces. He slept well. — Don W. Weber

Weber Quotes By Max Weber

Calvinist believers were psychologically isolated. Their distance from God could only be precariously bridged, and their inner tensions only partially relieved, by unstinting, purposeful labor. — Max Weber

Weber Quotes By Nadia Bolz-Weber

If the quality of my Christianity lies in my ability to be more inclusive than the next pastor, things get tricky because I will always, always encounter people - intersex people, Republicans, criminals, Ann Coulter, etc. - whom I don't want in the tent with me. Always. I only really want to be inclusive of some kinds of people and not of others. — Nadia Bolz-Weber

Weber Quotes By Ottilie Weber

Yet I am stuck in the idea of romance, a dreamer; I want to actually fall in love with a man, then marry him — Ottilie Weber

Weber Quotes By Nadia Bolz-Weber

I knew Catholics existed, with their saints and candles and rosaries, and all their other exotic ways of being wrong. — Nadia Bolz-Weber

Weber Quotes By Marilynne Robinson

I think, if people actually read Calvin, rather than read Max Weber, he would be rebranded. He is a very respectable thinker. And one of the crucial things he brings to me, is that the encounter with another being is an ... occasion in which you can, to the best of your ability, honour the other person as being someone sent to you by God. — Marilynne Robinson

Weber Quotes By Marcia Weber Martins

He shook his head in disbelief. He would cook and take her to his place. He was about to break two of his own rules. Number one was to never create the intimacy of cooking for a woman he was seeing, and the other one, to never take her to his place. They had the nasty habit of leaving personal things behind and making his house an extension of their own. He had no other alternative - she shared her place with her brother - but somehow he was enjoying doing it for Mary.
Perfect Match — Marcia Weber Martins

Weber Quotes By Catherine Gayle

It was one of those simple facts of life: the sky was blue, gravity kept our feet firmly on the ground, and I loved Katie Weber." ~ Jamie — Catherine Gayle

Weber Quotes By Jon Weber

Altruism is written in everlasting and resplendent character on the Cross of Christ, and it was at Calvary that the centre of life was shifted from selfishness to sacrifice. — Jon Weber

Weber Quotes By Nadia Bolz-Weber

I told them that when I heard Billy was bright, an artist and musician, and when I heard that he loved his family and loved people through difficulty in relationships, and when I heard that he struggled with heroin and booze addictions and an unhelpful brain chemistry, and when I heard that he was beautifully queer and passionate and sometimes played piano in his sister's dresses, I knew. I knew that Billy was pretty much exactly the kind of person Jesus would hang out with. — Nadia Bolz-Weber

Weber Quotes By Carolyn Weber

I dozed, jolting occasionally at the driver's loud pronouncement of upcoming stops. At this early hour the bus hummed along quietly with few passengers, so the stops were infrequent. In the hazy surrealism of predawn, there really was not much to see
what I could make out was mainly countryside, though not what I would call quaint, and certainly no Shakespearean cottages or fairy folk peeping from the trees. — Carolyn Weber

Weber Quotes By Nadia Bolz-Weber

But I cannot pretend, as much as sometimes I would like to, that I have not throughout my life experienced the redeeming, destabilizing love of a surprising God. — Nadia Bolz-Weber

Weber Quotes By Max Weber

It is certain that there can be no work in political economy on any other than an altruistic basis... If our work is to retain any meaning it can only be informed by this: concern for the future, for those who will come after us. — Max Weber

Weber Quotes By Eberhard Weber

I realized pretty soon that I have to do more than just play bass in the background way. So, I developed a kind of playing which only a handful of musicians accepted. — Eberhard Weber

Weber Quotes By David Weber

Insurgent, terrorist, guerrilla, or patriot. As far as he was concerned, anyone who chose violence against the helpless as his means of protest deserved the same label: barbarian, and — David Weber

Weber Quotes By Jenny Weber

If you can not master your language you must be it's slave. — Jenny Weber

Weber Quotes By Vin Weber

After examining some of the recent cases which the Postal Service has pursued, vigorous prosecution of, for example, a health food advocate. — Vin Weber

Weber Quotes By Steven Weber

What's hard, it seems, is living up to the words spoken by Jesus Christ, who preached naught but love and mercy and justice and humility. — Steven Weber

Weber Quotes By David Weber

War may represent the failure of diplomacy, but even the best diplomats operate on credit. Sooner or later someone who's less reasonable than you are is going to call you, and if your military can't cover your I.O.U.s, you lose. — David Weber

Weber Quotes By Max Weber

Homelessness is the fundamental idea of salvation in Jainism. It means the breaking off of all earthly relations, and therefore, above all, indifference to general impressions and avoidance of all worldly motives, the ceasing to act, to hope, to desire. — Max Weber

Weber Quotes By Max Weber

One may attain salvation in any walk of life; on — Max Weber

Weber Quotes By Nadia Bolz-Weber

Identity. It's always God's first move. Before we do anything wrong and before we do anything right, God has named and claimed us as God's own. — Nadia Bolz-Weber

Weber Quotes By Max Weber

The earning of money within the modern economic order is, so long as it is done legally, the result and the expression of virtue and proficiency in a calling; and this virtue and proficiency are, as it is now not difficult to see, — Max Weber

Weber Quotes By Nadia Bolz-Weber

The fact is, we are all, at once, bearers of the gospel and receivers of it. We meet the needs of others and have our needs met. And — Nadia Bolz-Weber

Weber Quotes By Katharine Weber

This is a great mind at work examining itself. This is where literature comes from. — Katharine Weber

Weber Quotes By James Weber

The famous Babylonian "Code of Hammurabi" states that tavern owners must always pour a sufficient amount of beer or face the death penalty. Trade and travel then brought beer to Egypt, where it was again associated with the work of the gods. Workers at the Giza Pyramids were given beer rations several times a day and over a hundred medicines recipes included the beverage. The Egyptians believed beer to be healthier than water and shared it with their fellow men of all ages, young and old. — James Weber

Weber Quotes By Bruce Weber

I like to start out each day from the beginning. I'm always learning things. — Bruce Weber

Weber Quotes By Carolyn Weber

[My father] was handsome and tanned and smelled wonderful, like a mix of the ocean and fresh-cut grass, except when he smoked his pipe, which also smelled wonderful, as how I thought wisdom must smell, when it curls about your head. — Carolyn Weber

Weber Quotes By Nicholas Gane

... With the 'death' of God worldly values proliferate, separate out and are drawn into endless conflict with one another. This process leads to the formation of a world torn by an infinite number of value-conflicts, for 'rational' (scientific) knowledge, which, for Weber, is limited to questions of fact rather than value, is unable to resolve the crisis of values that it itself inaugurated. — Nicholas Gane

Weber Quotes By David Weber

I am an officer of the Royal Manticoran Navy, Sir - " Venizelos felt an undeniable rush of adrenaline and pleasure as he faced the burly captain squarely " - and the Royal Manticoran Navy does not 'bluff. — David Weber

Weber Quotes By Bruce Weber

Well, my life is so centered around the people I care about, my animals, and my work. — Bruce Weber

Weber Quotes By Amy Weber

I put a lot of pressure on myself, but I also have what I call an X-factor. — Amy Weber

Weber Quotes By Ken Weber

In humor, almost always, less is more. — Ken Weber

Weber Quotes By David Weber

Yet i say to you, do not rush to marriage for it is a deep and perfect thing. Test first, that you may be certain you are called to it by love, and not simply by pleasures of the flesh which will consume themselves and leave only ashes and misery — David Weber

Weber Quotes By Katharine Weber

I do love competence in a man. — Katharine Weber

Weber Quotes By Max Weber

The final result of political action often, no regularly, stands in completely inadequate and often even paradoxical relation to its original meaning. — Max Weber

Weber Quotes By Nadia Bolz-Weber

On All Saints' Sunday, I am faced with sticky ambiguities around saints who were bad and sinners who were good. — Nadia Bolz-Weber

Weber Quotes By Franz Liszt

My mind and fingers have worked like the damned. Homer, the Bible, Plato, Locke, Lamartine, Chateaubriand, Beethoven, Bach, Hummel, Mozart, Weber are all around me. I study them. I devour them with fury. — Franz Liszt

Weber Quotes By Jo Nesbo

The fog was back. It seeped in through the streets, from the cracks around the closed windows behind the trees in the avenue, out of the blue door which opened after they had heard Weber's abrupt bark over the intercom, and out through the keyholes in the doors they passed on the way upstairs. — Jo Nesbo

Weber Quotes By Stu Weber

Adam Brown's zest for life led him down a few dark alleys and more than one dead end. Kind-hearted and wild, Adam led a life that lacked direction. God, a woman, and the U.S. Navy gave it to him. FEARLESS is a love story ... several love stories: a man for his woman, a warrior for his team, parents for kids, and soldiers for their country. There is no greater love than that a man lay down his life for his friends. Be warned - reading FEARLESS will change the way you see the world. — Stu Weber

Weber Quotes By Nadia Bolz-Weber

I've never fully understood how Christianity became quite so tame and respectable, given its origins among drunkards, prostitutes, and tax collectors. — Nadia Bolz-Weber

Weber Quotes By Barton Seaver

While there are many varieties of grills, each with their own virtues to be sure, I prefer the standard Weber kettle grill. Don't be fooled into thinking that you need any fancy gadgets in order to take advantage of cooking over a live fire. Just a good set of tongs and you're set. — Barton Seaver

Weber Quotes By Nadia Bolz-Weber

The image of God I was raised with was this: God is an angry bastard with a killer surveillance system who had to send his little boy (and he only had one) to suffer and die because I was bad. But the good news was that if I believed this story and then tried really hard to be good, when I died I would go to heaven, where I would live in a golden gated community with God and all the other people who believed and did the same things as I did ... this type of thinking portrays God as just as mean and selfish as we are, which feels like it has a lot more to do with our own greed and spite than it has to do with God. — Nadia Bolz-Weber

Weber Quotes By Karl Jaspers

Schumpeter remarked how pleased he was with the Russian Revolution. Socialism was now no longer a discussion on paper, but had to prove its viability. Max Weber responded in great agitation: Communism, at this stage in Russian development, was virtually a crime, the road would lead over unparalleled human misery and end in a terrible catastrophe. "Quite likely", Schumpeter answered, "but what a fine laboratory". "A laboratory filled with mounds of corpses", Weber answered heatedly. — Karl Jaspers

Weber Quotes By Max Weber

Weber,... argues that... personal bias should not preclude the scientific ascertainment of objective historical facts. — Max Weber

Weber Quotes By Liz Weber

people you work with don't want to hear how hard your life is or how hard you work. They care how well you do your job. — Liz Weber

Weber Quotes By Nadia Bolz-Weber

Whenever people annoy me beyond reason, I can guarantee it's because they're demonstrating something I'd rather not see in myself. — Nadia Bolz-Weber

Weber Quotes By Nadia Bolz-Weber

I started to imagine Mary tugging at the shirt of Jesus and saying, I will not keep silent. I will obey you and I will tell others to obey you but I will not keep silent. People are thirsty. In John's Gospel, Mary is not the young virgin pondering sweet things in her heart. In John's Gospel, Mary is not surrounded by singing angels... I started to see Mary in a long line of prophets who have not kept silent. The prophet Mary stands and says, "Lord we've run out of wine and people are thirsty." And Jesus hears her. — Nadia Bolz-Weber

Weber Quotes By Max Weber

Nothing is worthy of man as man unless he can pursue it with passionate devotion. — Max Weber

Weber Quotes By Max Weber

Either one lives 'for' politics or one lives 'off' politics. — Max Weber

Weber Quotes By Amy Weber

I just think I have always had a good attitude about everything and never got ahead of myself. No one wants to work with a jerk. — Amy Weber

Weber Quotes By Nadia Bolz-Weber

We often behave as though Jesus is only interested in saving and loving a romanticized version of ourselves, or an idealized version of our mess of a world, and so we offer to him a version of our best selves. With our Sunday school shoes on, we sing songs about kings and drummers at his birth, perhaps so we can escape the Herod in ourselves and in the world around us. But we've lost the plot if we use religion as the place where we escape from difficult realities instead of as the place where those difficult realities are given meaning. — Nadia Bolz-Weber

Weber Quotes By Nadia Bolz-Weber

Jesus brings a kingdom ruled by the crucified one and populated by the unclean and always found in the unexpected. I'd expected to look at the past and see only mistakes that I'd moved on from, to see only damage and addiction and tragic self-delusion. But by thinking that way, I'd assumed that God was nowhere to be found back then. But that's kind of an insult to God. It's like saying, 'You only exist when I recognize you.' The kingdom of heaven, which Jesus talked about all the time, is, as he said, here. At hand. It's now. Wherever you are. In ways you'd never expect. — Nadia Bolz-Weber

Weber Quotes By Lenora Mattingly Weber

Strange, that certain superiority the goer-away feels for the stayer-at-home. — Lenora Mattingly Weber

Weber Quotes By David Weber

There's a reason I've always relied on you for the necessary political miracles, Emily," Hamish told her with a smile. "Give me a fleet problem, or a naval battle to fight, and I "know exactly what to do. But dealing with scum like High Ridge and Descroix - ?" He shook his head. "I just can't wrap my mind around how to handle them."
"Be honest, dear," Emily corrected him gently. "It's not that you really can't do it, and you know it. It's that you get so furious with them that you wind up climbing onto your high moral horse so you can ride them under the hooves of your righteous fury. But when you close your knight errant's helmet, the visibility through that visor is just a little limited, isn't it? — David Weber

Weber Quotes By David Weber

That sounds strangely little like "justice," Tisipohone jibed gently.

"On the contrary." Alicia jacked a discarding sabot round into the M-97's chamber and settled her left hand briefly on the forestock to activate its computer systems. "I won't do a thing to them unless they intend to do something to me."

Indeed?

"Indeed. But if they do have something planned, I intend to do unto them first."

So there are times you see things my way after all.

"Never said there weren't. — David Weber

Weber Quotes By Max Weber

The primary task of a useful teacher is to teach his students to recognize 'inconvenient' facts - I mean facts that are inconvenient for their party opinions. — Max Weber

Weber Quotes By Shea Weber

I think it was good, we wanted to win no matter if it was 1-0 or 8-2, we got to win. The Russians are a great team, but so are we. So we've gotta prepare the way we can and play the way we can tomorrow. I think that every game, every practice together we've continue to get better. It's tough in these short tournaments you gotta bond quickly and you've gotta have good chemistry; so hopefully now we can build on that and keep going. — Shea Weber

Weber Quotes By David Weber

Never keep a lawyer waiting. They have friends in low and infernal places. — David Weber

Weber Quotes By Patrick O'Sullivan

That Canadian team had a bunch of guys who are in the 1 percent: Crosby, Getzlaf, Perry, Carter, Richards and Weber - guys who would win Olympic gold and make $8 and $10 million a season down the line. Though a player might be in that 1 percent, no team is, not as a group. — Patrick O'Sullivan

Weber Quotes By Nadia Bolz-Weber

As I wrote in Pastrix I, like any good middle-class mainline Protestant, tend to arrogantly look down my theological nose at talk of demon possession as superstitious snake-handling nonsense, as though it's the spiritual equivalent of a monster truck rally. — Nadia Bolz-Weber

Weber Quotes By David Weber

Your Grace," she said, "I have only one question. Do you wish this man crippled, or dead? — David Weber

Weber Quotes By Nadia Bolz-Weber

God is always present in love and in suffering. — Nadia Bolz-Weber

Weber Quotes By Katharine Weber

Marie Houzelle is a master of the first-person narrative. In Tita she has created a strange, utterly original child whose deadpan certainties are a beguiling invitation to readers of all ages. — Katharine Weber

Weber Quotes By Andreas Weber

Feeling is never invisible; it takes shape and manifests as form everywhere in nature. Nature can, therefore, be viewed as feeling unfurled, a living reality in front of us and amidst us. — Andreas Weber

Weber Quotes By Nadia Bolz-Weber

In the story, the eunuch was riding along the desert road in his chariot reading Isaiah, and he was returning from Jerusalem having gone there to worship. But I started to wonder if he was also familiar with Deuteronomy, specifically 23:1, which says, No one whose testicles are cut off or whose penis is cut off shall be admitted to the assembly of the Lord. (Why John 3:16 is the most popular verse in the Bible and not Deuteronomy 23:1 is beyond me.) — Nadia Bolz-Weber

Weber Quotes By Steven Weber

The GOP/corporate right-wing, it seems, never really considers the consequences of their actions. — Steven Weber

Weber Quotes By Nadia Bolz-Weber

Usually when you are grieving and someone says something so senselessly optimistic to you, it's about them. Either they want to feel like they can say something helpful, or they simply cannot allow themselves to entertain the finality and pain of death, so instead they turn it into a Precious Moments greeting card. — Nadia Bolz-Weber

Weber Quotes By Max Weber

All knowledge of cultural reality, as may be seen, is always knowledge from particular points of view. — Max Weber

Weber Quotes By Nadia Bolz-Weber

When the forces that seek to defy God whisper if in our ears - if God really loved me, I wouldn't feel like this ... If I really am beloved, then I should have everything I want ... if I really belong to God, things in my life wouldn't suck - to remember that God has named us and claimed us as God's own. When what seems to be depression or compulsive eating or narcissism or despair or discouragement or resentment or isolation takes over, try picturing it as a vulnerable and desperate force seeking to defy God's grace and mercy in your life. And then tell it to piss off and say defiantly to it, "I am baptized" or "I am God's," because nothing else gets to tell you who you are. — Nadia Bolz-Weber

Weber Quotes By Max Weber

The Truth is the Truth. — Max Weber

Weber Quotes By Max Weber

Causal analysis provides absolutely no value judgment, and a value judgment is absolutely not a causal explanation. — Max Weber

Weber Quotes By Nadia Bolz-Weber

Mean, if Jesus was vulnerable to temptation, the rest of us certainly are, whether it be temptation to self-loathing or self-aggrandizement, depression or pride, self-destruction or self-indulgence. We are tempted to doubt our innate value precisely to the degree that we are insecure about our identity from, and our relationship to, God. — Nadia Bolz-Weber

Weber Quotes By Nadia Bolz-Weber

Every time I go look for God amidst sorrow, I always find Jesus at the cross, in death and resurrection. This is our God. — Nadia Bolz-Weber

Weber Quotes By Nadia Bolz-Weber

The week that the gospel text was that awesomely weird story of Jesus casting a legion of demons out of a naked dude and into a herd of pigs, pigs who then threw themselves over a cliff and drowned in a lake? My pastor friend Heather posted the following question on my Facebook wall: Dear Pastor Nadia: how can I get on board with Jesus when so much pork was wasted in the lake? Signed: a bacon-loving Christian. — Nadia Bolz-Weber

Weber Quotes By David Weber

Ben Belkassem had boned up on the alpha-synths after DeVries stole this ship. Too much was classified for him to learn as much as he would have liked, but he'd learned enough to know her augmentation didn't include the normal alpha-synth com link. Without it, the AI should have been forced to communicate back by voice, not some sort of ... of telepathy!
Yet he was beyond surprise where DeVries was concerned. After all, she'd survived multiple disrupter hits with no more than a few minor burns, killed eleven men saving his own highly-trained self, taken out a few ground-to-space weapon emplacements, escaped through the heart of Wyvern's very respectable fortifications, and polished off a destroyer as an encore. As far as he was concerned, she could do anything she damned well liked. — David Weber

Weber Quotes By Max Weber

All theology represents an intellectual rationalization of the possession of sacred values... Every theology... presupposes that the world must have a meaning, and the question is how to interpret this meaning so that it is intellectually conceivable. — Max Weber

Weber Quotes By Liz Weber

Managers and leaders cause most of the organizational confusion and frustration by not doing their jobs - their real jobs. — Liz Weber

Weber Quotes By David Weber

One of the first signs of a self-destructing aboriginal culture always seems to be an increase in the use of drugs and intoxicants, — David Weber

Weber Quotes By Steven Weber

A product is usually created to improve people's lives; otherwise, why buy it? I'm no genius, but I am an American, and gosh-darnit, I consume, so I know what I'm talking about. — Steven Weber

Weber Quotes By Evan Osnos

I had come to expect that Chinese friends would make financial decisions that I found uncomfortably risky: launching businesses with their savings, moving across the country without the assurance of a job. One explanation, which Weber and Hsee call "the cushion hypothesis," is that traditionally large Chinese family networks afford people confidence that they can turn to others for help if their risk-taking does not succeed. Another theory is more specific to the boom years. "The economic reforms undertaken by Deng Xiaoping were a gamble in themselves," Ricardo Siu, a business professor at the University of Macau, told me. "So people got the idea that taking a risk is not just okay; it has utility." For those who have come from poverty to the middle class, he added, "the thinking may be, If I lose half my money, well, I've lived through that. I won't be poor again. And in several years I can earn it back. But if I win? I'm a millionaire! — Evan Osnos

Weber Quotes By Steven Weber

A nation is not a budget, no matter how much ideologues want it to be so. — Steven Weber

Weber Quotes By Mary Weber

I can't do this. They're going to know I'm a fraud." "Everyone's a fraud, you idiot. You'll be same as the rest of 'em. You just put one foot in front of the other and 'opefully not in yer mouth. Now 'urry up cuz I'm missin' my dinner." But — Mary Weber

Weber Quotes By Marcia Weber Martins

Reading is a wonderful adventure. — Marcia Weber Martins

Weber Quotes By Nadia Bolz-Weber

The Bible had been the weapon of choice in the spiritual gladiatorial arena of my youth. I knew how, wielded with intent and precision, the Bible can cut deeply, while on the one holding it can claim with impunity that this is from God. — Nadia Bolz-Weber

Weber Quotes By Carl Schmitt

Today nothing is more modern than the onslaught against the political. American financiers, industrial technicians, Marxist socialists, and anarchic-syndicalist revolutionaries unite in demanding that the biased rule of politics over unbiased economic management be done away with. There must no longer be political problems, only organizational-technical and economic-sociological tasks. The kind of economic-technical thinking that prevails today is no longer capable of perceiving a political idea. The modern state seems to have actually become what Max Weber envisioned: a huge industrial plant. — Carl Schmitt

Weber Quotes By Nadia Bolz-Weber

How is it that Judas, who betrayed Jesus once and was filled with remorse, became the villain, while Peter, who denied Jesus three times and wept bitterly, became the rock on which the church was built? When it comes down to it, what is the difference between Peter and Judas? Well, maybe nothing. And maybe there's not a whole lot of difference between us and them too. — Nadia Bolz-Weber

Weber Quotes By Larry Weber

Don't listen to you customers. They don't know what they want anyway. — Larry Weber

Weber Quotes By Max Weber

Man does not by nature wish to earn more and more money. — Max Weber

Weber Quotes By David Weber

The world's best swordsman doesn't fear the second best; he fears the worst swordsman, because he can't predict what the idiot will do. — David Weber

Weber Quotes By David Weber

Apparently, for some reason known only to themselves, these people ... have chosen to cling to hydrocarbon-fueled power generation well past the point at which they could have replaced it with nuclear generation. — David Weber

Weber Quotes By Larry Weber

For the past 10 years, corporations have been trained that they should use all the different media ... But the internet is becoming the umbrella. — Larry Weber

Weber Quotes By Max Weber

Seest thou a man diligent in his business? He shall stand before kings (Prov. xxii. 29). — Max Weber

Weber Quotes By Amy Weber

I lost twins at 14 weeks, and I had to have an D and C on my birthday. — Amy Weber

Weber Quotes By Max Weber

The radical elimination of magic from the world allowed no other psychological course than the practice of worldly asceticism. Since — Max Weber

Weber Quotes By Mary Weber

Sofi had no idea how long she sat like that. Tucked up beside this boy she despised more than anyone other than her mother while his music overwhelmed her senses and set them all right again. This man who'd used her and hurt her and probably would again, and yet who stayed, soothing her hair and not saying a word. — Mary Weber

Weber Quotes By Katharine Weber

Majestic and stately as Conrad Richter's Awakening Land Trilogy, Evangeline is a big book from a big mind. — Katharine Weber

Weber Quotes By Liz Weber

You can't effectively move up to the next stage of leadership yourself until your current stage leadership skills are solid and are being developed in your team members so they can take over as you move on. — Liz Weber

Weber Quotes By Eberhard Weber

The way to compose for me is to have lots of time. — Eberhard Weber

Weber Quotes By Nadia Bolz-Weber

Sometimes the best thing we can do for each other is talk honestly about being wrong. — Nadia Bolz-Weber
