Alexander Herzen Quotes and Sayings
Quotes by Alexander Herzen

I hope you like this page of quotes by Alexander Herzen from my extensive collection of relationship quotes.

Such absence of feeling, such narrowness of outlook,
such lack of passion and information,
such feebleness of thought.

Napoleon proved this.

will have its influence and its place,
just as our body will pass into the composition of grass,
of sheep, of cutlets, and of men.

In order to develop it is necessary that things should
be much better for some and much worse for others,
then those who are better off can develop at the expense of others.
- Alexander Herzen

Unaware of the absurdity of it, we introduce our own
petty household rules into the economy of the universe
for which the life of generations,
peoples, of entire planets, has no importance in relation
to the general development.
- Alexander Herzen

If nations always moved from one set of furnished rooms to another -
and always into a better set -
things might be easier,
but the trouble is that there is no one to prepare the new rooms.
The future is worse than the ocean -
there is nothing there.
- Alexander Herzen

It is our choices ... that show what we truly are,

to follow your heart and intuition.
They somehow already know what you truly want to become.
Everything else is secondary.

pound pillows, scream, curse.
Then take a deep breath, and get over it.

relax into being ourselves,

dig in the dirt,
grow something,

hang "go away" on the door whenever we want,
clean and tidy often... or never,
launch from and return to,
are truly ourselves.

my friends in the holiday season is to pause

and am contributing right now to another quality memory.
I value you and honor and take the time,
right this moment to pause long enough to truly notice you."

and that is good.

If you have an emotional reaction in the presence of someone,
your heart is telling you that you have
not resolved your issues with them.
In other words, you have not truly forgiven that person.
All of this begs the question, how do we forgive?
First, cease lying to yourself and stop telling yourself stories
about why you behave the way you do.
Stop blaming your behavior on other people
and take responsibility for your emotional reactions.
If you could forgive all the people in your life
who have hurt or wounded you
it would be possible to be in control of your behavior
instead of being in reaction to other people all of the time.
Imagine living life without experiencing
a constant emotional roller-coaster of pain, anger, and jealousy!
That would be bliss!
-Sheri Rosenthal

The greatest day in your life and mine is when we take
total responsibility for our attitudes.
That's the day we truly grow up.

and they graciously honor all other opinions.

I must soon lay it down, and commence living on its hint.

then truly I seem to be living among the gods.

If you truly eradicated it in a child,
he would grow up to be an eggplant.

because once you are truly educated,
you will not ask for power.
You will take it.
- John Henrik Clarke

The reality is, Jennifer and I can do our job well
because we truly are friends.
But when the day's over, she goes home to her boyfriend
