Pattrice Jones Quotes

"When I look closely at dairy, I see the hurtful exploitation of specifically female bodies so that some people can enjoy sensual pleasures of consumption while others enjoy the psychological pleasure of collecting profits from the exertions of somebody elses body. Cows are forcibly impregnated, dispossessed of their children, and then painfully robbed of the milk produced by their bodies for those children. No wonder I didnt want to see my complicity! Most women dont consciously perceive the everyday violence against girls and women that permeates and structures our society. How much harder it is, then, to see the gendered violence against nonhuman animals behind the everyday items on the grocery store shelf. When we, as women, partake of that violence, we participate in sexism even as we enjoy the illusory benefits of speciesism. No wonder a glimpse of the sexist violence behind my breakfast cereal left me dizzy."

Quotes About Metaphorical Love

"Younger love, it seemed, was mainly about the idea of potential--the illusion that magical transformations were bound to occur when the person you think you love has a miraculous impromptu awakening after some metaphorical lightning bolt, made out of your wishes and projections, suddenly brings them to their senses. On the other hand, older love is all about what you are hoping is still possible, after you have mourned the death of the idea of yourself as manufacturer of miracles. Older love starts with the unpleasant truth that expecting a person to change for the better spontaneously, simply because you wish it, makes as much sense as counting on the lottery for next months rent." - Author: Merrill Markoe

Quotes About Llanto

"-Niña- dijo Milagros con la solemnidad de una sacerdotisa-, yo te deseo la locura, el valor, los anhelos, la impaciencia. Te deseo la fortuna de los amores y el delirio de la soledad. Te deseo el gusto por los cometas, por el agua y los hombres. Te deseo la inteligencia y el ingenio. Te deseo una mirada curiosa, una nariz con memoria, una boca que sonría y maldiga con precisión divina, unas piernas que no envejezcan, un llanto que te devuelva la entereza. Te deseo el sentido del tiempo que tienen las estrellas, el temple de las hormigas, y la duda de los templos. Te deseo la fe en los augurios, en la voz de los muertos, en la boca de los aventureros, en la paz de los hombres que olvidan su destino, en la fuerza de tus recuerdos y el futuro como la promesa donde cabe todo lo que aún no te sucede. Amen." - Author: Ángeles Mastretta

Quotes About Gwenn

"Wenn du mich küsst, Gwendolyn Shepherd, dann ist das so, als würde ich den Kontakt zum Boden verlieren. Ich habe keine Ahnung, wie du das machst oder wo du es gelernt hast. Wenn du mich küsst, dann will ich nichts anderes mehr, als dich zu spüren und in meinen Armen zu halten. Scheiße, ich bin so schrecklich in dich verliebt, dass es sich anfühlt, als hätte irgendwo in meinem Inneren jemand einen Kanister mit Benzin ausgekippt und angezündet! Gwenny, das alles macht mir furchtbare Angst. Ohne dich würde mein Leben keinen Sinn mehr haben, ohne dich... ich würde auf der Stelle sterben wollen, wenn dir etwas zustieße." - Author: Kerstin Gier

Quotes About Assessing Student Learning

"Man seeks to learn, and man kills himself because of the loss of cohesion in his religious society; he does not kill himself because of his learning. It is certainly not the learning he acquires that disorganizes religion; but the desire for knowledge wakens because religion becomes disorganized." - Author: Emile Durkheim

Quotes About Cigarette Smoking

"Its a great paradox and a great injustice that writers write because we fear death and want to leave something indestructable in our wake, and at the same time, are drawn to things that kill: whiskey and cigarette, unprotected sex and deep fried burritos.Its true that you can get away with drinking and smoking and sunbathing when youre in your teens and twenties, and its true that rock stars are free to die at twenty-nine, but a lit star needs a long life." - Author: Ariel Gore
