[David Thought Living In A House Was Very Difficult. It Was Not The House Itself--that Was Lovely To Be In--but The People. What Was So Difficult About Them Was That They Constantly Seemed To Expect Him To Say And Do Things He Would Never Have Though Of, And What Appeared Sensible And Natural To Him Seemed To Surprise Them...]

Quotes About Committing Crimes

"Here is your law enforcement and media question of the day: Was the TV show COPS real or BS?It might have been real incidents, but it wasnt really all that real. They edited the episodes to make it appear as if black people were committing fewer crimes. That is what the show creator John Langley said in a 2009 interview in response to people who were unhappy his long-running reality show, COPS, was showing too many black people getting arrested. What irritates me sometimes is critics still watch and say, Oh look, they misrepresent people of color. Thats absolutely not true. To the contrary, I show more white people than statistically what the truth is in terms of street crime..Its just the reverse. And I do that intentionally, because I do not want to contribute to negative stereotypes, said Langley, the shows producer, in 2009." - Author: Colin Flaherty

Quotes About Scars And Pain

"He stares at the cellist, and feels himself relax as the music seeps into him. He watches as the cellists hair smoothes itself out, his beard disappears. A dirty tuxedo becomes clean, shoes polished bright as mirrors...The building behind the cellist repairs itself. The scars of bullets and shrapnel are covered by plaster and paint, and windows reassemble, clarify and sparkle as the sun reflects off glass. The cobblestones of the road set themselves straight. Around him people stand up taller, their faces put on weight and colour. Clothes gain lost thread, brighten, smooth out their wrinkles. Kenan watches as his city heals itself around him. The cellist continues to play..." - Author: Steven Galloway

Quotes About Excessive Power

"the wilderness should be preserved for political reasons. We may need it someday not only as a refuge from excessive industrialism but also as a refuge from authoritarian government, from political oppression. Grand Canyon, Big Bend, Yellowstone, and the High Sierras may be required to function as bases for guerrilla warfare against tyranny...The value of wilderness, on the other hand, as a base for resistance to centralized domination is demonstrated by recent history. In Budapest and Santo Domingo, for example, popular revolts were easily and quickly crushed because an urbanized environment gives the advantage to the power with technological equipment. But in Cuba, Algeria, and Vietnam the revolutionaries, operating in mountain, desert, and jungle hinterlands with the active or tacit support of a thinly dispersed population, have been able to overcome or at least fight to a draw official establishment forces equipped with all of the terrible weapons of twentieth century militarism." - Author: Edward Abbey

Quotes About Twined

"He looked like he wanted to say something but his jaw tensed andinstead he let his hand travel from my elbow to my hand, the strong pulse from his fingers like a balm to my injured soul. I raised our entwined handsand placed them over the steady thumping of his heart a twin of the rhythm in my own chest. I pressed my head to his chest letting the steady paceof his heart and his citrusy, musky scent envelop me, lull me into a place of security. A place safe enough that I didnt have to pretend I was okay. Ifailed to sniff back the tears that began to leak from me." - Author: Lani Woodland
