2. "Even with a Democratic president behind the Civil Rights Act of 1964, a far larger percentage of Republicans than Democrats voted for it. Eminent Democratic luminaries voted against it, including Senators Ernest Hollings, Richard Russell, Sam Ervin, Albert Gore Sr., J. William Fulbright (Bill Clinton's mentor) and of course, Robert Byrd. Overall, 82 percent of Senate Republicans supported the Civil Rights Act of 1964, compared to only 66 percent of Democrats. In the House, 80 percent of Republicans voted for it, while only 63 percent of Democrats did.Crediting Democrats for finally coming on board with Republicans civil rights policies by supporting the 1964 act would be nearly as absurd as giving the Democrats all the glory for Regan's 1981 tax cuts - which passed with the support of 99 percent of Republicans but only 29 percent of Democrats."
Author: Ann Coulter

4. "From a nonpatriarchal metaethical standpoint, however, Singer's and Regan's theoretical similarities are as significant as their differences. In particular, both Singer's utilitarian theory and Regan's rights approach are developed within a framework of patriarchal norms, which includes the subordinatin of emotion to reason, the privileging of abstract principles of conduct, the perception of ethical discussion as a battle between adversaries, and the presumption that ethics shoudl function as a means of social control."
Author: Brian Luke
5. "Next out of the hall came the sisters and their husbands. Before I could say anything, the captain had clamped his hand over my mouth and was lifting me off my feet as I kicked.

It was clear."
Author: Christopher Moore

Author: Eugene H. Peterson
10. "Spesso dicevo che la vita era uno schifo.Anche quella frase mi stava fregando, perché avrei dovuto dire: "La mia vita è uno schifo".Allora, magari avrei iniziato a chiedermi se potevo fare qualcosa per cambiarla.Se era tutta colpa del destino, del caso, della sfortuna, o se invece anch'io ne ero colpevole. Perché dire che la vita fa schifo è come dire che non c'è niente che si possa fare.Che bisogna accettarlo come un dato di fatto imprescindibile.Fortuna che poi ho cambiato idea.Fortuna che ho capito che la mia vita ha un valore e quel valore glielo do io con le mie scelte e con il coraggio delle mie decisioni.Ho imparato a pormi una domanda ogni sera prima di addormentarmi: cosa hai fatto oggi per realizzare il tuo sogno, la tua libertà?Alla seconda sera in cui mi sono risposto: "Niente", ho capito quanto in fondo una parte del problema fossi io.Quindi, o smettevo di lamentarmi o iniziavo a darmi da fare."
Author: Fabio Volo

13. "Cašcenje je raven zavarovanja in spoštovanja procesa življenja. medtem ko oseba zori na poti in skozi pot, ko zacenja izražati avtenticno moc duše, ne škoduje nicemur. Ker ne castimo, naša pot do izražanja moci duše velikokrat vkljucuje izkušnjo žrtvovanja življenja. Zato se žrtve in preganjalci. Proces unicevanja Življenja med ucenjem o Življenju, kar je dalo pecat naši evoluciji, bi se nehal ali bi vsaj postal povsem drugacen, ce bi bil naš odnos do življenja cašcenje."
Author: Gary Zukav
14. "A muchos el universo les parece honrado; las gentes honestas tienen los ojos castrados. Por eso temen la obscenidad. No sienten ninguna angustia cuando oyen el grito del gallo ni cuando se pasean bajo un cielo estrellado. Cuando se entregan 'a los placeres de la carne' lo hacen a condición de que sean insípidos."
Author: Georges Bataille

"So eventually they said, 'Okay we're going to send you guys out to the hinterlands.'" The Regan administration began to dismantle the Endangered Species Office in D.C. Biologists have been working from regional offices ever since."

Author: Jonathan Lethem
23. "It was on the eve of Yom Kippur, the holiest of holy days, that a fly flew under the door of the synagogue and began to pester the hanging congregants. It flew from face to face, buzzing, landing on long noses, going in and out of hairy ears.

AND I URGE YOU: CRASH TO THE GROUND BEFORE YOU RELEASE THE GREAT BOOK!But how pestering that fly was, tickling some of the most ticklish places. AND AS GOD ASKED ABRAHAM TO SHOW ISAAC THE KNIFE'S POINT, SO IS HE ASKING US NOT TO SCRATCH OUR ASSES! AND IF WE MUST, BY ALL MEANS WITH THE LEFT HAND!"
Author: Jonathan Safran Foer
24. "Lincoln was raised in the thick of Old School Calvinism. In Kentucky and Indiana, his parents belonged to a fire-breathing sect called Separate Baptism, in which congregants heard—in the tradition of Jonathan Edward's famous sermon "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God"—that they were bound for eternal hellfire, and nothing they could do or say or think would change their fate. Preachers did allow that a chosen few were ordained for grace and would be saved, but these fortunate ones had been selected by God before time began. As one Baptist preacher in Lincoln's Kentucky explained it, "Long before the morning stars sang together . . . the Almighty looked down upon the ages yet unborn, as it were, in review before him, and selected one here and another there to enjoy eternal life and left the rest to the blackness of darkness forever." Such Baptist ministers were so intense that it has been said that they "out-Calvined Calvin."

27. "Every cuisine has its characteristic 'flavor principle,' Rozin contends, whether it is tomato-lemon-oregano in Greece; lime-chili in Mexico; onion-lard-paprika in Hungary, or, in Samin's Moroccan dish, cumin-coriander-cinnamon-ginger-onion-fruit. (And in America? Well, we do have Heinz ketchup, a flavor principle in a bottle that kids, or their parents, use to domesticate every imaginable kind of food. We also now have the familiar salty-umami taste of fast food, which I would guess is based on salt, soy oil, and MSG."
Author: Michael Pollan

Author: Oscar Wilde
