"Freedom to make mistakes, freedom to live life messily."

Tobias Jones Quotes

"Anyone who has lived here for long enough has seen it all before: opposing sides of the political spectrum ferociously criticising each other, getting hot under the collar about this and that, bringing up all sorts of allegations and innuendos. Then just as it looks as if the argument is about to get physical, harmony breaks out. A dialogue is opened, an accord or a compromise is found. And suddenly, just as quickly as it came, all that fiery rhetoric subsides and everyone realizes it was all synthetic, put on for show when all along some deal was imminent anyway. Its as if every politician is merely an actor in a little theatre, and as soon as the curtain falls and the public cant see them any more they all slap each other on the back, tot up the takings and go out for an expensive meal."

Amruta Patil Quotes

"Girl from the fifth floor, who feeds the birds every day, climbs up to the water tank and jumps off. I see her body on the road below, and feel absolutely nothing. Maybe because I expect her to get up and walk off. In a story, the birds would have joined forces in a show of gratitude and broken her fall, carried her to a faraway land of safety. As it is, they just gurgle foolishly and confer about the no-show of breakfast.I imagine myself in Pigeon girls place - a split open bag of skin on tar."

Marvin Bell Quotes

"Try to write poems at least one person in the room will hate."

Patty Hite Quotes

"When I deny the seriousness of my abuse I agree with my abuser and those who wouldnt acknowledge it. When I am in denial, I have the tendency to minimize my abuse, believe the lies others have said, as well as deny it ever happened. It is important for me to remember as much detail as I can so I can trust my own perceptions of what really happened and not depend on the validations from others."

Trish Millburn Quotes

"Ill even wear a white hat if it helps. Do you think they make white witch hats?"

I love you, you light me, warm me, you are suns.You have never spoken before." - Author: China Miéville

Quotes About Failure In Education

The lack of education means only the failure to have acquired them, and the consequent liability to be floored and rattled in the vicissitudes of experience." - Author: William James
