Quotes About Race And Social Class

"Every time I asked a question, that magnificent teacher, instead of giving the answer, showed me how to find it. She taught me to organise my thoughts, to do research, to read and listen, to seek alternatives, to resolve old problems with new solutions, to argue logically. Above all, she taught me not to believe anything blindly, to doubt, and to question even what seemed irrefutably true, such as mans superiority over woman, or one race or social class over another." - Author: Isabel Allende

Quotes About Sherwood

"...and again she wished for Sherwood, and the dappled roof of leaves that never weighed upon her. She pulled her scarf closer around her and thought, I would rather live in a hut in the woods; a hut like the one of my first memories, with a clean-swept dirt floor, and a brown-eyed boy watching me from behind his mothers skirts as I watched him from behind mine." - Author: Robin McKinley

Quotes About Tutoring

"the child of a supermom who gets lots of extra tutoring and one-on-one support is going to do way better than an average well-loved child. But what Blairs and Evanss research suggests is that regular good parenting—being helpful and attentive during a game of Jenga—can make a profound difference for a childs future prospects." - Author: Paul Tough

Quotes About Silence In The Chosen

"When I did a therapist education in USA 1984, one of the course leaders – who had given personal and spiritual guidance to thousands of seekers of truth from all over the world, and who I consider to be one of the best spiritual therapists in the world – said that I was going to get enlightened, that I would "disappear into the silence". I did not really understand what he meant then, and it was totally absurd for me when other course participants congratulated me afterwards. The thought that I was going to be enlightened was totally absurd for me. For me enlightenment was something that happened to special and chosen persons like Osho, Buddha, Jesus, Lao-Tzu and Krishnamurti. I did not feel either special or chosen. I did not feel worthy of being enlightened." - Author: Swami Dhyan Giten

Quotes About Turning 25 Funny

"Sometimes shed just walk around the city alone. Watch the people, smell the food, the bus exhaust, the smoke coming up through the grating. Shed feel protected somehow, found a sense of belonging in the hectic sprawl. And the next minute shed feel like the one who couldnt break the code, hit the right stride, catch the wave. Potholes and traffic and bums, oh my. With all the honking and the hum of movement, the living, breathing blur of noise gently pressing in on her, the great purr of the Metropolitan Cat turning into a dull roar. Shed feel so silent on the inside, her head as quiet as a stretch of sand, a cathedral silently worshipping the life that was all around her, storing it up for later when she needed some too much to draw upon." - Author: Carrie Fisher

Quotes About Courage In The Hunger Games

"I no longer feel allegiance to these monsters called human beings, despise being one myself. I think that Peeta was onto something about us destroying one another and letting some decent species take over. Because something is significantly wrong with a creature that sacrifices its childrens lives to settle its differences. You can spin it any way you like. Snow thought the Hunger Games were an efficient means of control. Coin thought the parachutes would expedite the war. But in the end, who does it benefit? No one. The truth is, it benefits no one to live in a world where these things happen." - Author: Suzanne Collins
