[For A Few Thousand Years, Women Had No History. Marriage Was Our Calling, And Meekness Our Virtue. Over The Last Century, In Stuttering Succession, We Have Gained A Voice, A Vote, A Room, A Playing Field Of Our Own. Decorously Or Defiantly, We Now Approach What Surely Qualifies As The Final Frontier.]

Jen Wang Quotes

"Beauty could be defined simply as that which pleases. But there is another aspect to art, and that... is the sublime. Like the mushroom cloud of the atom bomb, or the vastness of space as projected to us by satellite... the greatness of the experience goes beyond your ethical and aesthetic judgment, cutting you free from the binding ego of yourself. With the diminishment of your ego, the less there is of you, the more you see the sublime."

Kwame Anthony Appiah Quotes

"In short—to overstate the point only slightly—because people dont really know why they do what they do, they give explanations of their own behavior that are about as reliable as anyone elses, and in many circumstances actually less so."

It comes from listening and asking good questions."

Tommy Bolin Quotes

Quotes About Mary Ward

"Mary never made it to the board meeting. Cunning Elizabeth simply arranged for her cousins tennis instructor to "delay" her for an hour or two.

Quotes About Dwelling On Past Mistakes

"Tea is an act complete in its simplicity.When I drink tea, there is only me and the tea.The rest of the world dissolves.There are no worries about the future.No dwelling on past mistakes.Tea is simple: loose-leaf tea, hot pure water, a cup.I inhale the scent, tiny delicate pieces of the tea floating above the cup.I drink the tea, the essence of the leaves becoming a part of me.I am informed by the tea, changed.This is the act of life, in one pure moment, and in this act the truth of the world suddenly becomes revealed: all the complexity, pain, drama of life is a pretense, invented in our minds for no good purpose.There is only the tea, and me, converging." - Author: Thích Nhất Hạnh
