Resentments and grudges are two of the main culprits th

Resentments and grudges are two of the main culprits that perpetuate cycles of self-abuse and victimhood. Stowed away inside you like parasites, they deplete you of your God-given life force and separate you from your inherent worth, your joy, and the love in your heart.

The presidency of the United States is a very unique elected position. So if anything merits a longer vetting process, the presidency does to some extent.

John Delaney
The lessons of history would suggest that civilisations move in cycles. You can track that back quite far – the Babylonians, the Sumerians, followed by the Egyptians, the Romans, China. We’re obviously in a very upward cycle right now, and hopefully that remains the case. But it may not.

Ideally I’d like to be working steadily as an actor: movies, a TV series, that sort of thing. I’ve been through a few different TV development cycles, and they didn’t work out.

Russell Peters
Life is made of cycles.
Filippo Inzaghi
