3. "Para mi es imposible pensar que tipo de emocion de miedo quedaria si no estuvieran presentes la sensacion de latidos acelerados o de respiracion entrecortada, ni la sensacion de labios temblorosos o de piernas debilitadas, ni de carne de gallina o de retorcijones de tripas. Puede alguien imaginarse el estado de ira sin sentir que el pecho estalla, la cara se ruboriza, los orificios nasales se dilatan, los dientes se aprietan, sin notar el impulso hacia la accion vigorosa? Puede sentirse rabia en cambio con los musculos relajados, la respiracion calmada y una cara placida?"

5. "Compassion is a wonderful thing. It's what one feels when one looks at a squashed caterpillar. An elevating experience. One can let oneself go and spread--you know, like taking a girdle off. You don't have to hold your stomach, your heart or your spirit up--when you feel compassion. All you have to do is look down. It's much easier. When you look up, you get a pain in the neck. Compassion is the greatest virtue. It justifies suffering. There's got to be suffering in the world, else how would we be virtuous and feel compassion?... Oh, it has an antithesis--but such a hard, demanding one... Admiration, Mrs. Jones, admiration. But that takes more than a girdle... So I say that anyone for whom we can't feel sorry is a vicious person. Like Howard Roark."
Author: Ayn Rand
6. "Many professionals have to sign gagging clauses or face the sack if they speak out. The social worker and therapist was familiar with the scare that revelation brings to the survivor. […]We are in this story. It isn't ours, but we are in it nonetheless, not least because of the viscous campaign which has followed us over the last ten years. Any organisation with which we work may receive correspondence from the accused adults' and ‘false memory' movements. Some of these propagandists are confidentially dominating the professional and political arguments using new information technology to spread what we consider to be smears, innuendo and misinformation. P8(refers to authors Beatrix Campbell & Judith Jones – a journalist and a social worker/therapist)"

He has a long face and delicate features for a man.I grab the sleeve of his black jacket and pull him into the outer room."What the fuck are you wearing? You look insane," he says."This?

Given a decent start any girl can beat a man nowadays."

Let Jones worship the sun or moon, anything rather than the Inner Light; let Jones worship cats or crocodiles, if he can find any in his street, but not the god within. Christianity came into the world firstly in order to assert with violence that a man had not only to look inwards, but to look outwards, to behold with astonishment and enthusiasm a divine company and a divine captain. The only fun of being a Christian was that a man was not left alone with the Inner Light, but definitely recognized an outer light, fair as the sun, clear as the moon, terrible as an army with banners."
Author: G.K. Chesterton

How can it be broad to be the same thing to everyone, and narrow to be everything to someone? No. A woman's function is laborious, but because it is gigantic, not because it is minute. I will pity Mrs. Jones for the hugeness of her task; I will never pity her for its smallness."
Author: G.K. Chesterton

But instead of a cyborgish John Wilkes Booth discharging his deadly bullet into the back of a plastic Lincoln's head, a very real version of the assassin was engaged in a furious arm-wrestling match with Elvis Presley.Lincoln was watching the tussle, amused.

But most likely, she's do what most people do when confronted with something they don't understand. Panic."
