"I know its technically goodwill to all men, but in my mind, I drop the men because that feels segregationist/elitist/sexist/generally bad ist.Goodwill shouldnt be just for men. It should also apply to women and children, and all animals, even the yucky ones like subway rats.

Quotes About Interest In Others

"No fiction can have real interest if the central character is not an agent struggling for his or her own goals but a victim, subject to the will of others. (Failure to recognize that the central character must act, not simply be acted upon, is the single most common mistake in the fiction of beginners.) We care how things turn out because the character cares, our interest comes from empathy, and though we may know more than the character knows, anticipating dangers the character cannot see, we understand and to some degree sympathize with the characters desire, approving what the character approves." - Author: John Gardner

Quotes About Kitchen Fires

"When the girl returned, some hours later, she carried a tray, with a cup of fragrant tea steaming on it; and a plate piled up with very hot buttered toast, cut thick, very brown on both sides, with the butter running through the holes in great golden drops, like honey from the honeycomb. The smell of that buttered toast simply talked to Toad, and with no uncertain voice; talked of warm kitchens, of breakfasts on bright frosty mornings, of cosy parlour firesides on winter evenings, when ones ramble was over and slippered feet were propped on the fender, of the purring of contented cats, and the twitter of sleepy canaries." - Author: Kenneth Grahame

Quotes About Had A Great Night

"How are you doing, my love? Things are pretty good on this end of campus. I had a great time with you last night at the baseball game. I never would have guessed you were such an avid sports fan! You can holler with the best of them. You never cease to amaze me.You know, I was thinking last night after I dropped you off that weve been seeing each other for almost six months now. Time really flies, doesnt it? Ive really enjoyed spending time together and getting to know you. And yet, as I was looking back, I realized that there is still a lot I dont know about you. Rather, there is so much more that I would like to know about you. Obviously I know quite a bit about some things, though. I know about your job with the botany professor, for example, and about how your classes are going, and some of the things that are happening with you and your roommates." - Author: Bethany Walkers

Quotes About Shoe On The Other Foot

"You taste injustice, even if its fictional, really taste it,it has a way of doing that. Sometimes, you can never put the shoe on the other foot. We cant go back in time and know what it was like to be a black person then. Even today, when things are supposed to be so much better, not one of you can understand what its like to be black, to live with the knowledge of what happened to your ancestry and still face injustice. But that book makes us taste it and, reading it, we know how bitter that taste is and we know we dont like it. But that bitter wakes you up, and when you wake up, you open your mind to things in this world, you make yourself think. Then youll decide you dont like the taste of injustice, not for you and not for anyone, and youll understand that even though all the battles cant be won, that doesnt mean you wont fight." - Author: Kristen Ashley

Quotes About Cowgirls

"A little boy, he can play like hes a fireman or a cop--although fewer and fewer are pretending to be cops, thank God--or a deep-sea diver or a quarterback or a spaceman or a rock n roll star or a cowboy, or anything else glamorous and exciting (Authors note: What about a novelist, Jellybean?), and although chances are by the time hes in high school hell get channeled into safer, duller ambitions, the great truth is, he can be any of those things, realize any of those fantasies, if he has the strength, nerve and sincere desire...But little girls? Podner, you know that story as well as me. Give em doll babies, tea sets and toy stoves. And if they show a hankering for more bodacious playthings, call em tomboy, humor em for a few years and then slip em the bad news...And the reality is, we got about as much chance of growing up to be cowgirls as Eskimos have got being vegetarians." - Author: Tom Robbins

Quotes About How Doing The Right Thing Is Hard

"Because all actions and expressions stem from the mind, it is vital to know the mind as well as decide in what way well use it. Everyone has heard of psychosomatic illness, and most of us acknowledge that psychosomatic sicknesses can and do occur. But what about psychosomatic wellness? How many of us have considered if its possible to stay healthy or cure various maladies with the positive use of the mind? And if we have thought of this, have we done much more than simply consider the idea?" - Author: H.E. Davey
