Give Satellite TV For Those Special Occasions

Famous quotes containing the words occasions, special, give and/or satellite:

    A man must find his occasions in himself, it is true. The natural day is very calm, and will hardly reprove his indolence.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Our normal waking consciousness, rational consciousness as we call it, is but one special type of consciousness, whilst all about it, parted from it by the filmiest of screens, there lie potential forms of consciousness entirely different.
    William James (1842–1910)

    You are wonderful. I love and honor you.... [ellipsis in source] Lead your own life, attend to your charities, cultivate yourself, travel when you wish, bring up the children, run your house. I’ll give you all the freedom you wish and all the money I can but—leave me my business and politics.
    Eleanor Roosevelt (1884–1962)

    Books are the best things, well used; abused, among the worst. What is the right use? What is the one end, which all means go to effect? They are for nothing but to inspire. I had better never see a book, than to be warped by its attraction clean out of my own orbit, and made a satellite instead of a system.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
