[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.]

"Get off my bed before you make it smell like girl germs."

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."

Blaize Clement Quotes

"I pulled the dress out of the bag and held it in front of me. Ella sat up straighter and squinted her eyes, while Michael and Paco made the noises men make when a woman says, "What do you think?" Fathers probably teach those noises to their sons when theyre young—"Stand up when youre introduced to a lady, use your napkin instead of your sleeve, and make admiring noises when a woman shows you anything, no matter what it is, and asks you what you think about it. Never, never, never say you have no opinion."

Sarah J Pepper Quotes

"Imagination.... when reality gets too stupid to live in."

Quotes About Individual Strengths

"Turgenev saw human beings as individuals always endowed with consciousness, character, feelings, and moral strengths and weaknesses; Marx saw them always as snowflakes in an avalanche, as instances of general forces, as not yet fully human because utterly conditioned by their circumstances. Where Turgenev saw men, Marx saw classes of men; where Turgenev saw people, Marx saw the People. These two ways of looking at the world persist into our own time and profoundly affect, for better or for worse, the solutions we propose to our social problems." - Author: Theodore Dalrymple

Quotes About Business

"...[That] is my dilemma. Because if I was led by God to love God, step by step, as it seemed, if I accept that the beauty and the rapture were real and true, the rest of it was Gods will too, and that gentlemen is cause for bitterness. But if I am simply a deluded ape who took a lot of old folktales far too seriously, then I brought all this on myself and my companions and the whole business becomes farcical, doesnt it. The problem with atheism, I find, under these circumstances...is that I have no one to despise but myself. If, however, I choose to believe that God is vicious, then at least I have the solace of hating God." - Author: Mary Doria Russell

Quotes About Possible And Impossible

"I could see the road ahead of me. I was poor and I was going to stay poor. But I didnt particularly want money. I didnt know what I wanted. Yes, I did. I wanted someplace to hide out, someplace where one didnt have to do anything. The thought of being something didnt only appall me, it sickened me. The thought of being a lawyer or a councilman or an engineer, anything like that, seemed impossible to me. To get married, to have children, to get trapped in the family structure. To go someplace to work every day and to return. It was impossible. To do things, simple things, to be part of family picnics, Christmas, the 4th of July, Labor Day, Mothers Day . . . was a man born just to endure those things and then die? I would rather be a dishwasher, return alone to a tiny room and drink myself to sleep." - Author: Charles Bukowski
