Diane Chamberlain Quotes

"Justice DeniedThousands of women, probably moreI cannot reach them behind justice doorsMany stay silent, barred just like me.Haunted by demons, faces unseen.Still by the hundreds, they continue to serveDuty and country, active and reserve.Thankless, forgotten through Americas warsScarred like their brethren, treated as foes.Volunteered to go to the shores.Died like the others, shamed to the core.Where is the dignity, long since denied? Lost in the White House of Justice DeniedWomen in service since beginning of time Often theyre treated like victims in crime.Where is their voice, silence throughout the years? Its dead in the Senate and House, with their tears!"

He gets a refrigerator."

Quotes About Proces

"What are works of art for? to educate, to be standards. To produce is of little use unless what we produce is known, is widely known, the wider known the better, for it is by being known that it works, it influences, it does its duty, it does good. We must try, then, to be known, aim at it, take means to it. And this without puffing in the process or pride in the success." - Author: Gerard Manley Hopkins

But someday you will understand that nobody passes through this world without suffering--no matter what you think of them and their supposed good fortune." - Author: Elizabeth Gilbert
