Riz Ahmed Quotes

"First, you have stereotypes, and that will be the black drug dealer, the east Asian kung fu master, the Middle Eastern terrorist in True Lies. Then you have stuff that takes place on culturally specific terrain, that engages with it, but actually subverts assumptions. Smashes stereotypes. Thats where Ive come into the game."

Chimamamda Ngozi Adichie Quotes

"We teach girls shame. Close your legs; cover yourself. We make them feel as though being born female, theyre already guilty of something. And so, girls grow up to be women who silence themselves. They grow up to be women who cannot say what they truly think. And they grow up--and this is the worst thing we do to girls--they grow up to be women who have turned pretense into an art form."

Quotes About Masculinity In Things Fall Apart

"You can find something funny in anything! Im sick as a dog and falling to bits, but Ill give up joking only after I give up the ghost! my last gasp! The proof, here, with only an eighth of a glimmer of light, things oozing out of my asshole, my armpits, and the elbows, too, blood coming out of the eyes, from the soupy mess of my grave, me whistling a tune, thats what youll hear! A regular blackbird!" - Author: Louis Ferdinand Céline

Quotes About Christianity And Politics

"Pastor Ted and other evangelical pastors I hear about in the media seem to perceive just about everything to be a threat against Christianity. Evolution is a threat. Gay marriage is a threat. A swear word uttered accidentally on television is a threat. Democrats are a threat. And so on.I dont see how any of these things pose a threat against Christianity. If someone disagrees with you about politics, or social issues, or the matter of origins, isnt that just democracy and free speech in action? How do opposing viewpoints constitute a threat?" - Author: Hemant Mehta

Quotes About Charming Smile

"Love You asked if love makes one happy. His promises yes, be it for a day. Ah, who wouldnt want to live one day for love Then die? For life does live in love. As lover full of gentleness and fear, With his fires I painted his suffering, On his portrait I shed so many tears That his image became much less charming. If smile, that unexpected gleam, Broke out sometimes amidst my tears, It was love, unarmed, it was him, And heaven with him disappears. Deprived of love, the hearts icy. Yet he burns all, and poisons all. He sure knows how to rend a soul. Ask him if he makes one happy! Youll know, whatever may occur, That love will win by force or grace; And in the slow-healing fever he made You will suffer and make others suffer. Once found, his absence is torture, And when hes back, one shakes every hour. Often its death that lives in love. And yet, love does make one happy." - Author: Marceline Desbordes Valmore

Quotes About Ghosts And Spirits

"Those places where sadness and misery abound are favoured settings for stories of ghosts and apparitions. Calcutta has countless such stories hidden in its darkness, stories that nobody wants to admit they believe but which nevertheless survive in the memory of generations as the only chronicle of the past. It is as if the people who inhabit the streets, inspired by some mysterious wisdom, relalise that the true history of Calcutta has always been written in the invisible tales of its spirits and unspoken curses." - Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón

Quotes About Reading And Writing

"About a year ago I got really exhausted from reading bad scripts and I know that I am a writer and that I have stories to tell, so I thought, Lets do this! So Im co-writing a screenplay now with another screenwriter and loving it. Absolutely loving it. And I would like to be the producer on the project and of course the lead is me." - Author: Kerry Washington

Quotes About Collar

"But such people (Moderate Conservatives) arent liberal. What they are is corporate. Their habits and opinions owe far more to the standards of courtesy and taste that prevail within the white-collar world than they do to Franklin Roosevelt and the United Mine Workers. We live in a time, after all, when hard-nosed bosses compose awestruck disquisitions on the nature of change, punk rockers dispense leadership secrets, shallow profundities about authenticity sell luxury cars, tech billionaires build rocknroll musuems, management theorists ponder the nature of coolness, and a former lyricist fro the Grateful Dead hail the dawn of New Economy capitalism from the heights of Davos. Coversvatives may not understand why, but business culture had melded with counterculture for reasons having a great deal to do with business cultures usual priority - profit." - Author: Thomas Frank

Quotes About God Making Nature

"A child kicks his legs rhythmically through excess, not absence, of life. Because children have abounding vitality, because they are in spirit fierce and free, therefore they want things repeated and unchanged. They always say, ‘Do it again … Perhaps God is strong enough to exult in monotony. It is possible that God says every morning, ‘Do it again to the sun; and every evening, ‘Do it again to the moon. It may not be automatic necessity that makes all daisies alike; it may be that God makes every daisy separately, but he has never got tired of making them. It may be that He has the eternal appetite of infancy; for we have sinned and grown old, and our Father is younger than we. The repetition in Nature may not be a mere recurrence; it may be a theatrical encore." - Author: G.K. Chesterton

Quotes About Isis And Osiris

"What she read was a series of short connected lyrics, "Isis in Darkness." The Egyptian Queen of Heaven and Earth was wandering in the Underworld, gathering up pieces of the murdered and dismembered body of her lover Osiris. At the same time, it was her own body she was putting back together; and it was also the physical universe. She was creating the universe by an act of love." - Author: Margaret Atwood

Quotes About Releases

"Laughter is important, not only because it makes us happy, it also has actual health benefits. And thats because laughter completely engages the body and releases the mind. It connects us to others, and that in itself has a healing effect." - Author: Marlo Thomas

Quotes About Unwise

"To put our faith in tangible goals would seem to be, at best, unwise. So we do not strive to be firemen, we do not strive to be bankers, nor policemen, nor doctors. WE STRIVE TO BE OURSELVES.But dont misunderstand me. I dont mean that we cant BE firemen, bankers, or doctors—but that we must make the goal conform to the individual, rather than make the individual conform to the goal." - Author: Hunter S. Thompson
