Denise Dresser Quotes

"Yo creo en el poder de llamar a las cosas por su nombre. De descubrir la verdad aunque haya tantos empeñados en esconderla. [...] Yo creo en la obligación ciudadana de vivir en la indignación permanente: criticando, denunciando, proponiendo, sacudiendo. Porque los buenos gobiernos se construyen con base en buenos ciudadanos y sólo los inconformes lo son. La insatisfacción lleva a la participación; el enojo, a la contribución; el malestar hacia el statu quo, a la necesidad de cambiarlo."

Quotes About Apologies Not Accepted

"You looked at them and wondered why the were so ugly; you looked closely and could not find the source. Then you realized that it came from conviction, their conviction. It was as though some mysterious all-knowing master had given each one a cloak of ugliness to wear, and they had each accepted it without question. The mast had said, "You are ugly people." They had looked about themselves and saw nothing to contradict the statement; saw, in fact, support for it leaning at them from every billboard, every movie, every glance. "Yes," they had said. "You are right." - Author: Toni Morrison

Quotes About Ground

"The whole ground of human life seems to some to have been gone over bytheir predecessors, both the heights and the valleys, and all things tohave been cared for. According to Evelyn, "the wise Solomon prescribedordinances for the very distances of trees; and the Roman prætors havedecided how often you may go into your neighbors land to gather theacorns which fall on it without trespass, and what share belongs to thatneighbor." Hippocrates has even left directions how we should cut ournails; that is, even with the ends of the fingers, neither shorter norlonger. Undoubtedly the very tedium and ennui which presume to haveexhausted the variety and the joys of life are as old as Adam. But manscapacities have never been measured; nor are we to judge of what he cando by any precedents, so little has been tried. Whatever have been thyfailures hitherto, "be not afflicted, my child, for who shall assign tothee what thou hast left undone?" - Author: Henry David Thoreau

Quotes About Cultural Diversity

"Most moral relativists believe that tolerance of cultural diversity is better, in some important sense, than outright bigotry. This may be perfectly reasonable, of course, but it amounts to an overarching claim about how all human beings should live. Moral relativism, when used as a rationale for tolerance of diversity, is self-contradictory." - Author: Sam Harris

Friends will mutilate him – blood will betray him! Spittoons will brain him – doctors will drain him – jungle will claim him – wizards reclaim him! Soldiers will try him – tyrants will fry him… He will have sons without having sons! He will be old before he is old! And he will die before he is dead!" - Author: Salman Rushdie

Quotes About Civil War And Slavery

"For twenty-five years Ive been speaking and writing in defense of your right to happiness in this world, condemning your inability to take what is your due, to secure what you won in bloody battles on the barricades of Paris and Vienna, in the American Civil War, in the Russian Revolution. Your Paris ended with Petain and Laval, your Vienna with Hitler, your Russia with Stalin, and your America may well end in the rule of the Ku Klux Klan! Youve been more successful in winning your freedom than in securing it for yourself and others. This I knew long ago. What I did not understand was why time and again, after fighting your way out of a swamp, you sank into a worse one. Then groping and cautiously looking about me, I gradually found out what has enslaved you: YOUR SLAVE DRIVER IS YOU YOURSELF. No one is to blame for your slavery but you yourself. No one else, I say!" - Author: Wilhelm Reich

Quotes About Fritz

"Greg Broadmores fertile and twisted imagination has conjoined multiple genres, memories, and a sharp sense of pulp, colonialist nostalgia/parody in this lavish, fully realized, imaginative tour-de-force. Its Jules Verne meets Fritz Lang meets Tintin. Its beyond Steampunk. Its clearly an insatiable passion for the talismans of a bygone civilization and its slavish addiction to the early industrial age in all its filigreed, ignorant glory. Greg has raised the bar." - Author: Adam Savage
