Elizabeth Kerner Quotes

"What good I thought I could do, all alone, against thousands of years of mistrust and the power of a Demonlord, I cannot now imagine: but such are the dreams of youth, too gloriously stupid to realise what cannot be done. And without those dreams, how should we ever accomplish the impossible?"

Quotes About Doing Your Best Every Day

"If everyone had the luxury to pursue a life of exactly what they love, we would all be ranked as visionary and brilliant. … If you got to spend every day of your life doing what you love, you cant help but be the best in the world at that. And you get to smile every day for doing so. And youll be working at it almost to the exclusion of personal hygiene, and your friends are knocking on your door, saying, "Dont you need a vacation?!," and you dont even know what the word "vacation" means because what youre doing is what you want to do and a vacation from that is anything but a vacation — thats the state of mind of somebody whos doing what others might call visionary and brilliant." - Author: Neil deGrasse Tyson

Quotes About Grin And Bear It

"The disobedience if Eve in the Genesis story has been used to justify womens inequality and suffering in many Christian traditions. Thus, what is understood as womens complicity in evil leads much traditional theological reflection on suffering to offer the "consequent admonition to grin and bear it because such is the deserved place of women." Similarly, when Jesus is seen as a divine co-sufferer, the potentially liberating narratives of Jesus as a revolutionary leader who takes the side of the poor and dispossessed can be ignored in favor of religious beliefs more interested in Jesus as a stoic victim. Christs suffering is inverted and used to justify womens continued suffering in systems of injustice by framing it as redemptive." - Author: Melissa V. Harris Perry

Quotes About Rationalizing

"No front porches. My uncle says there used to be front porches. And people sat there sometimes at night, talking when they wanted to talk, rocking, and not talking when they didnt want to talk. Sometimes they just sat there and thought about things, turned things over. My uncle says the architects got rid of the front porches because they didnt look well. But my uncle says that was merely rationalizing it; the real reason, hidden underneath, might be they didnt want people sitting like that, doing nothing, rocking, talking; that was the wrong KIND of social life. People talked too much. And they had time to think. So they ran off with the porches." - Author: Ray Bradbury

Quotes About The Art Of Weaving

"He played the opening bars again, opening a door for her, inviting her to join. She started quietly, almost voiceless, only a thin string of sound weaving herself into his tune, as if her voice were just another string on the guitar between his fingers. She had to be careful, so no one saw the changes on her face. But she didnt want to be careful; she couldnt be careful. He played and she sang to him, and inside her more and more blocks of ice began to melt, cracking and falling into the frozen sea between them. She sang of all the things that were happening to her and him, the world that collapsed over both of them, the things that might be in store, if only they dared to believe it was possible." - Author: David Grossman

Quotes About Big Brother Watching

"Big Brother isnt watching. Hes singing and dancing. Hes pulling rabbits out of a hat. Big Brothers busy holding your attention every moment youre awake. Hes making sure youre always distracted. Hes making sure youre fully absorbed. Hes making sure your imagination withers. Until its as useful as your appendix. Hes making sure your attention is always filled. And this being fed, its worse than being watched. With the world always filling you, no one has to worry about whats in your mind. With everyones imagination atrophied, no one will ever be a threat to the world." - Author: Chuck Palahniuk

Quotes About Painful Memories

"A long hug when you really need it Sometimes we all get rattled. When bad news surprises you, painful memories flash back, or heavy moments turn your stomach to mush, its great to fall into a warm and comforting pair of big, wide open arms. Shaking with sobs, dripping with tears, you snort up your runny nose and smear snot across their shoulder as that hug relaxes you and comforts you and helps you get through everything, even for a minute, even for a moment. Maybe there are "Its going to be okay" whispers, some gentle back rubbing, or just the quiet silence of knowing that theyre not going to let go until you let go first. As their steady arms support you, and the pain washes over you, the hug gives you a warm glow in a shivery moment. So when you eventually pull back, smile that classic "Im sorry and thank you" smile, and swipe wet bangs off your forehead, you still might not feel great, but if youre lucky youll feel a little more AWESOME!" - Author: Neil Pasricha

Quotes About Body Dysmorphic Disorder

"I am overweight. But to me, its fat. I dont have Body Dysmorphic Disorder. When I look in the mirror I dont plunge into a depression and stick my finger down my throat or carve FAT in my arm with a pickle fork. I can appreciate when I look good aside from the weight. Sometimes I might say, Oh, Im having a good face day.And a few times, after checking my appearance in the mirror before a date, Id say, Okay. Id date me. And I know if I ever could get the extra tonnage off, Id be the first one to parade around in my underwear, or have no qualms about getting naked with a hottie, while the lights were still on in the room." - Author: Kelli Jae Baeli
