Quotes About Toxic Family Members

"Unhealthy families discourage individual expression. Everyone must conform to the thoughts and actions of the toxic parents. They promote fusion, a blurring of personal boundaries, a welding together of family members. On an unconscious level, it is hard for family members to know where one ends and another begins. In their efforts to be close, they often suffocate one anothers individuality." - Author: Susan Forward

Quotes About Sunshine And Clouds

"In general, I weathered even the worst sermons pretty well. They had the great virtue of causing my mind to wander. Some of the best things I have ever thought of I have thought of during bad sermons. Or I would look out the windows. In winter, when the windows were closed, the church seemed to admit the light strictly on its own terms, as if uneasy about the frank sunshine of this benighted world. In summer, when the sashes were raised, I watched with a great, eager pleasure the town and the fields beyond, the clouds, the trees, the movements of the air—but then the sermons would seem more improbable. I have always loved a window, especially an open one." - Author: Wendell Berry

Quotes About Scopes Trial

"As Karl Marx once noted: Hegel remarks somewhere that all great, world-historical facts and personages occur, as it were, twice. He forgot to add: the first time as tragedy, the second as farce. William Jennings Bryan and the Scopes trial was a tragedy. The creationists and intelligent design theorists are a farce." - Author: Michael Shermer

Quotes About Debt And Happiness

"The truth, if I can confront it, is I know my dream to become a writer is impossible and will never happen. The people outside of the machine are always more likely to connect with my words than the people within. The truth is: Im not in this park to follow my dream. Im here because my landlord put my rent up. I could no longer afford to sustain my private depression. My debts were growing. My place of employment could have helped me, but I was met with the cold back of the system. So I left, deciding it was better to be homeless than participating in the social collective delusion of success and happiness through the medium of a desk job." - Author: Craig Stone

Quotes About Christmas Funny

"People never like to talk about their slower relatives. I got a cousin, twice removed, got webs between his toes, aint said one word his whole life. You never hear about him in the family newsletter that goes around every Christmas. Hell, nobody mentions me, either, if it comes to that. Families is funny about who they advertise." - Author: Susan Juby

Quotes About Looking Deeper

"Youre lying to yourself. Voron made us into serial killers. We can be okay without violence for a few weeks, but after a couple of months, the hand starts itching for the sword. You start looking for that rush. You get irritable, life turns stale, and then one day some fool crosses your path, attacks, and as you cut him down, you feel that short moment of struggle when he leverages his life against yours. If youre lucky, hes very good and the fight lasts a few seconds. But even if it doesnt, that short moment of triumph is like getting an adrenaline shot. Suddenly color comes back into life, food tastes better, sleep is deeper, and sex is rapture."I knew exactly what he was talking about. I lived it and I felt it." - Author: Ilona Andrews
