…On someone else’s plate?
Not sure if that sounds right, but green enchiladas are real, very common in New Mexico/Arizona cuisine. However my point about the someone else’s enchilada is thus. I’ve been working on and off on a post about famous quotes and in that time have gathered data that I believe is very powerful but did not fit the theme of my ‘quote’ post per se. Also have decided that I want my Enchilada posts to just be what I have created. So therefor the following is a list other people’s thoughts/words/feelings that are powerful and relevant to understanding the world we live in. So the Enchilada’s of others. As always I sincerely hope they stimulate thought.
I have put a ‘(V)’ at the end of the quote citation to indicate that I have verified this source as real.
“Stay calm and run cool…” wise words from my maternal grandfather, John Stanley Wood. (V)
Detective writer Arthur Conan-Doyle, author of the Sherlock Holmes series, once wrote: “When you have ruled out the impossible, then whatever remains, no matter how improbable, is the truth.” (V)
There is a game being played on all of us. As humans we need to become more aware, once I became aware my criminal mentality was completely erased. It’s gone. And so therefor the more knowledge we the people have the more control we have over our faculties. – Paraphrased from Eric Penn (father was a serial killer) (V)
“None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.”
Attributed to Johann Wolfgang von Goethe in ‘Elective Affinities’
I searched ‘Elective Affinities’ for said quote and could not find it. The following is listed after the quote in Wikiquote;
Bk. II, Ch. 5; source: Die Wahlverwandtschaften, Hamburger Ausgabe, Bd. 6 (Romane und Novellen I), dtv Verlag, München, 1982, p. 397 (II.5) (Die Wahlverwandtschaften = Elective Affinities)
I cannot identify a book II(2).
You can’t obtain honesty unless you overcome ego. – Alan Watt (V)
Levine suggests that the psychology profession needs to move in the direction of “liberation psychology,” a concept popularized by Ignacio Martin-Baró, a social psychologist and priest in El Salvador who recognized a “psychology of oppression” in which the downtrodden of a society fatalistically believe they are powerless to alter their circumstances. Consequently, they become resigned and apathetic to their situation. Sadly, Martin-Baró was assassinated in 1989 — by a U.S.-trained Salvadoran death squad — for speaking out on behalf of the oppressed. (V)
“The False Self and Excessive Identification with the U.S.A., drew from developmental psychology, explaining that all of us reside somewhere on a continuum from a fully authentic self to a completely false self.” (V)
The following was written by Ron Suskind, who was quoting an unidentified aide to President Bush, later attributed to Karl Rove;
“The aide said that guys like me were “in what we call the reality-based community,” which he defined as people who “believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality.” … “That’s not the way the world really works anymore,” he continued. “We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors…and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”
The New York Times Magazine
October 17, 2004, “Faith, Certainty and the Presidency of George W. Bush” (V)
“Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor.”
Rebuilding American’s Defenses Report, by Project for the New American Century (Page 51) (V)
“We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false”
William Casey – CIA Director
Quote was recorded by Barbara Honegger, @ meeting of President Reagen’s Cabinet in Feb of 1981 (V)
To quote former US Treasury Secretary Larry Summers, “There is surely something odd about the world’s greatest power being the world’s greatest debtor.”
“I think our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. …I think we’re being run by maniacs for maniacal ends, you know. …I think they’re all insane. But I am liable to be put away as insane for expressing that, you know. That’s what is insane about it. I mean, don’t you agree?”
John Lennon (Paraphrased from an interview with Peter Lewis, June 6th, 1968) (V)
The Great Dictator Speech
I’m sorry but I don’t want to be an emperor. That’s not my business. I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone if possible; Jew, Gentile, black men, white. We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each others’ happiness, not by each other’s misery. We don’t want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone. And the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way.
