[As Soon As A Western Man Comes Into Contact With The East -- He's Already Confused. The West Has Sort Of An International Rape Mentality Towards The East. ...Basically, 'Her Mouth Says No, But Her Eyes Say Yes.' The West Thinks Of Itself As Masculine -- Big Guns, Big Industry, Big Money -- So The East Is Feminine -- Weak, Delicate, Poor...but Good At Art, And Full Of Inscrutable Wisdom -- The Feminine Mystique. Her Mouth Says No, But Her Eyes Say Yes. The West Believes The East, Deep Down, Wants To Be Dominated -- Because A Woman Can't Think For Herself. ...You Expect Oriental Countries To Submit To Your Guns, And You Expect Oriental Women To Be Submissive To Your Men.]

Koethi Zan Quotes

"Or is it the case that no one gets over anything? Is there really that much pain and suffering continuing right now at this minute, in millions of hearts, in bodies carrying on the burden of existence, trying to smile through tears for fleeting, passing moments here and there-when they can forget what happened to them, maybe even for whole hours at a time? Maybe thats what it is to live."

Sean Michael Quotes

"You want it, boy?" He pulled his prick out of his jeans."God, yes. Thats why Im here." "Good." He left his jeans open, left his prick hard and pushing out. "Come on. Shower.""Turn around." He wanted to see it. Griff went a deep red, but the man turned to show the weird, stylized whip branded into one ass cheek. Groaning, Brian reached out and touched it, traced it with his fingers. Hed done that. Hed marked his boy. "You still clean?" Brian kept rubbing his prick back and forth across Griffs hole. "I am. I couldnt... I couldnt get it up with anyone else.""Good." He grabbed the shampoo and poured it over his fingers. "Was not. You fucked me up""We fucked each other up." He was not in this alone. He couldnt wait to be inside Griff again. His wild, desperate baby boy. His fingers traced the brand on Griffs ass. His. All fucking his. Marked permanently. And Griff had let him do it. The man knew it was true."

Quotes About Where Life Leads Us

"The battlefield is symbolic of the field of life, where every creature lives on the death of another. A realization of the inevitable guilt of life may so sicken the heart, that like Hamlet, or like Arjuna, one may refuse to go on with it. On the other hand, like most of the rest of us, one may invent a false finally unjustified image of oneself as an exceptional phenomenon in the world--not guilty as others are, but justified in ones inevitable sinning, because one represents the good. Such self-righteousness leads to a misunderstanding, not only of oneself, but of the nature of both Man and the Cosmos. The goal of the myth is to dispel the need for such life-ignorance by affecting a reconciliation of the individual consciousness with the universal will, and this is affected through a realization of the true relationship of the passing phenomena of time to the imperishable life that lives and dies in all." - Author: Joseph Campbell

Quotes About Oma And Opa

"This woman is Pocahontas. She is Athena and Hera. Lying in this messy, unmade bed, eyes closed, this is Juliet Capulet. Blanche DuBois. Scarlett OHara. With ministrations of lipstick and eyeliner I give birth to Ophelia. To Marie Antoinette. Over the next trip of the larger hand around the face of the bedside clock, I give form to Lucrezia Borgia. Taking shape at my fingertips, my touches of foundation and blush, here is Jocasta. Lying here, Lady Windermere. Opening her eyes, Cleopatra. Given flesh, a smile, swinging her sculpted legs off one side of the bed, this is Helen of Troy. Yawning and stretching, here is every beautiful woman across history." - Author: Chuck Palahniuk

Quotes About Greg

"If the wedding was wanted at Melrose—and Buccleuch, as Hereditary Bailie of the Abbey lands, had fewer objections than usual to any idea not his own—then the congregation had to come armed, that was all. The Scotts and their allies, the twenty polite Frenchmen from Edinburgh, the Italian commander with the lame leg, had left their men at arms outside with their horses, the plumed helmets lashed to the saddlebows; and if there were a few vacant seats where a man from Hawick or Bedrule had ducked too late ten days before, no one mentioned it." - Author: Dorothy Dunnett

Quotes About Paradise On Earth

"I was not meant to live anywhere except in Paradise.Such, simply, was my genetic inadaptation.Here on earth every prick of a rose-thorn changed into a wound.

Quotes About Tortured Souls

"Dear comrade in arms,after 15 years of battles, persecutions and sacrifices,Romanias youth must knowthat the hour of the Legionaire victory isnt far.All of our enemies attempts will be crushed.All plans of tempting us,All attempts at buying our souls,All attempts of seperating us,and all treasons will fall to the ground.Look at them, at your tyrants,straight in their eyes.Endure with submission all blows,endure all pains,whatever they may be,because our sacrifices will be the iron foundationmade from broken bodiesand from tortured souls,of our Victory.Those, among us, who will fallwill have names and tombs of heroes,and those who will kill uswill bear the names of traitorsand will be cursed from generation to generation.From the depthsthe Legionnaire rises victorious with his rock-like soul.Those who think they can defeat him...as well as those who think they can buy him...will soon, but too late...Come to the conclusion...that they were wrong." - Author: Corneliu Zelea Codreanu

Quotes About Landlady

"We are all alike; we have no ties, we know nobody, we own nothing. When one of us dies, they scarcely know where to bury him. Our landlady and the delicatessen man are our mourners, and we leave nothing behind us but a frock-coat and a fiddle, or an easel, or a typewriter, or whatever took we got our living by. All we have ever managed to do is to pay our rent, that exorbitant rent that one has to pay for a few square feet of space near the heart of things. We have no house, no place, no people of our own. We live in the streets, in the parks, in the theaters. We sit in restaurants and concert halls and look about at the hundreds of our own kind and shudder." - Author: Willa Cather

Quotes About Perez

"Así me paso la vida: esperando el día de poder tenerte otra vez a mi lado, hasta que me canse, hasta que no pida nada más, hasta que cree un mundo donde pueda refugiarme siempre que tenga la necesidad: un mundo no tan distante como para que perezca que tengo una vida independiente, ni tan cercano, como para que parezca que estoy invadiendo tu universo." - Author: Paolo Coelho
