2. "Like most guys, I had bought into the stereotype that all feminists were white, lesbian, unattractive male bashers who hated all men. But after reading the work of these black feminists, I realized that this was far from the truth. After digging into their work, I came to really respect the intelligence, courage and honesty of these women.Feminists did not hate men. In fact, they loved men. But just as my father had silenced my mother during their arguments to avoid hearing her gripes, men silenced feminists by belittling them in order to dodge hearing the truth about who we are."
Author: Byron Hurt

5. "I did. Mr. Rochester, reading my countenance, saw I had done so. His fury was wrought to the highest: he must yield to it for a moment, whatever followed; he crossed the floor and seized my arm and grasped my waist. He seemed to devour me with his flaming glance: physically, I felt, at the moment, powerless as stubble exposed to the draught and glow of a furnace: mentally, I still possessed my soul, and with it the certainty of ultimate safety. The soul, fortunately, has an interpreter—often an unconscious, but still a truthful interpreter—in the eye. My eye rose to his; and while I looked in his fierce face I gave an involuntary sigh; his gripe was painful, and my over-taxed strength almost exhausted."
Author: Charlotte Brontë
6. "My biggest gripe is still hope. In hell, hope is a really really bad habit. Like smoking cigarettes or fingernail biting. Hope is something really tough and tenacious you have to give up. It's an addiction to break. Yes, I know the word tenacious. I'm 13 and disillusioned. And a little lonely."
Author: Chuck Palahniuk
7. "My gripe is not with lovers of the truth but with truth herself. What succor, what consolation is there in truth, compared to a story? What good is truth, at midnight, in the dark, when the wind is roaring like a bear in the chimney? When the lightning strikes shadows on the bedroom wall and the rain taps at the window with its long fingernails? No. When fear and cold make a statue of you in your bed, don't expect hard-boned and fleshless truth to come running to your aid. What you need are the plump comforts of a story. The soothing, rocking safety of a lie."
Author: Diane Setterfield
8. "Even her powders and face paint couldn't disguise the age lines and gripe lines that ran as deep as the railway tracks some said were bound to cross our mountain any day so."

9. "It happened all the time. Maybe someone had a legitimate gripe that deserved airing. Maybe someone had a compliment that shouldn't go unspoken. No one said a thing. So long and stay in touch, that's usually all we said. Take care of yourself, good luck. We said nothing about affection, appreciation, admiration."
Author: Joshua Ferris
10. "Más adelante, pensé en aquellos primeros días como el momento en que aprendimos como especie que nos habíamos preocupado por las cosas equivocadas: el agujero de la capa de ozono, la desaparición de los casquetes polares, la gripe porcina y del Nilo, las abejas asesinas. Aunque supongo que lo que nos preocupa nunca es lo que acaba ocurriendo al final. Las verdaderas catástrofes siempre son diferentes, inimaginables, imprevistas y desconocidas."
Author: Karen Thompson Walker
11. "Mais tarde, viria a pensar que esses primeiros dias foram a altura em que aprendemos como espécie que andávamos preocupados com as coisas erradas: o buraco na camada de ozono, o degelo das calotes polares, o vírus do Nilo Ocidental, a Gripe Suína e as abelhas assassinas. As verdadeiras catástrofes eram sempre diferentes - inimagináveis, sem aviso, desconhecidas."
Author: Karen Thompson Walker
12. "When we saw a destitute-looking man trying to sell worn flip-flops, I vowed never to complain about a job again. When I considered the steady paycheck and quality of life it provided, my past gripes - primarily boring meetings, back-biting office politics and pantyhose - were just whining."
Author: Kristine K. Stevens

Author: Nathaniel Hawthorne

Author: Peter Wessel Zapffe
