Jonathan Haidt Quotes

"Creating gods who can see everything, and who hate cheaters and oath breakers, turns out to be a good way to reduce cheating and oath breaking."

George Saunders Quotes

"In a culture that is becoming ever more story-stupid, in which a representative of the Coca-Cola company can, with a straight face, pronounce, as he donates a collection of archival Coca-Cola commercials to the Library of Congress, that Coca-Cola has become an integral part of peoples lives by helping to tell these stories, it is perhaps not surprising that people have trouble teaching and receiving a novel as complex and flawed as Huck Finn, but it is even more urgent that we learn to look passionately and technically at stories, if only to protect ourselves from the false and manipulative ones being circulated among us."

Fuyumi Soryo Quotes

"The things that really shake the human soul arent beauty or kindness. Although such things are certainly moving, but those feelings dont last long. But... anger or sadness are different. They leave an undelible mark. Even after the wound heals... you can never forget the pain completely."

Michael Storm Quotes

Laurie Penny Quotes

"This, however, is OKCupid, the vast, weird pink-and-blue toned jungle of the id masquerading as a dating site, where rare birds of modern romance flutter amongst the night-terrors of human loneliness and despair and the suspicious skin irritants of late-night hook-uppery."

Jean Paul Sartre Quotes

Quotes About Menear

"Pilots were not excused all these rigorous new checks, and when Woodie Menears turn came, the security screener expressed concern about the presence of a pair of tweezers in his cabin baggage. As it happened, tweezers – unlike corkscrews or metal scissors, for example – were not on the list of forbidden items; Menear was not breaching regulations by trying to bring them on board. But the official paused just long enough to spark frustration on the part of the pilot, who, like his colleagues, had been growing ever more exasperated by each new restriction. This time it was too much. Menear did not explode in rage; he merely asked a sarcastic question. But it was one that would lead to his immediate arrest, a night in jail, his suspension by US Airways, and months of legal wranglings before he was finally acquitted of ‘making terroristic threats and permitted to return to his job. ‘Why are you worried about tweezers, Menear asked, ‘when I could crash the plane?" - Author: Oliver Burkeman

Quotes About Tem

"I suspect that, save by Gods direct miracle, spiritual experience can never abide introspection....The attempt to discover by introspective analysis our own spiritual condition is to me a horrible thing which reveals, at best, not the secrets of Gods spirit and ours, but their transpositions in intellect, emotion, and imagination, and which at worst may be the quickest road to presumption or despair." - Author: C.S.

Quotes About Life After Loss

"Choosing a path meant having to miss out on others. She had a whole life to live, and she was always thinking that, in the future, she might regret the choices she made now. "Im afraid of committing myself," she thought to herself. She wanted to follow all possible paths and so ended up following none. Even in that most important area of her life, love, she had failed to commit herself. After her first romantic disappointment, she had never again given herself entirely. She feared pan, loss, and separation. These things were inevitable on the path to love, and the only way of avoiding them was by deciding not to take that path at all. In order not to suffer, you had to renounce love. It was like putting out your own eyes not to see the bad things in life." - Author: Paulo Coelho

Quotes About Puffy

"One Christmas at the very beginning of your twenties when your mother gives you a warm coat that she saved for months to buy, dont look at her skeptically after she tells you she thought the coat was perfect for you.

You will regret the small thing you didnt say for the rest of your life.Say thank you." - Author: Cheryl Strayed
