[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.]

Quotes About Simple Pleasures

"I adore simple pleasures. They are the last refuge of the complex." - Author: Oscar Wilde

Quotes About Snowdrops

"For the author as for God, standing outwith his creation, all times are one; all times are now. In mine own country, we accept as due and right – as very meet, right, and our bounden duty – the downs and their orchids and butterflies, the woods and coppices, ash, beech, oak, and field maple, rowan, wild cherry, holly, and hazel, bluebells in their season and willow, alder, and poplar in the wetter ground. We accept as proper and unremarkable the badger and the squirrel, the roe deer and the rabbit, the fox and the pheasant, as the companions of our walks and days. We remark with pleasure, yet take as granted, the hedgerow and the garden, the riot of snowdrops, primroses, and cowslips, the bright flash of kingfishers, the dart of swallows and the peaceful homeliness of house martins, the soft nocturnal glimmer of glow worm and the silent nocturnal swoop of owl." - Author: G.M.W. Wemyss

Quotes About Love Till The End

"Early in life, the world divides crudely into those who have had sex and those who havent. Later, into those who have known love, and those who havent. Later still - at least, if we are lucky (or, on the other hand, unlucky) - it divides into those who have endured grief, and those who havent. These divisions are absolute; they are tropics we cross." - Author: Julian Barnes

Quotes About Practices

"First, it is a commitment to particularism, to giving priority to the specificity of particulars, not to abstractions and generalities that divert our attention away from concrete realities. Idealizations tend to be partial and distorting, obscuring the heterogeneity and complexity of actual experiences and concrete practices, which is why they do not provide an adequate standpoint for the diagnosis of social problems and injustices." - Author: José Medina

Quotes About Break Up Promises

"When I say I wont hurt you, its a promise, which can and will be kept but it does not come from me without a breakdown of what it means.It does not mean we will never disagree, nor does it mean that you will always like everything which I say or do. It does not mean that you will never hurt yourself by behaving in a way which is damaging to a relationship or by behaving in a way which would ultimately result in my withdrawal from your life. What it does mean is that I can promise all that I expect in terms of loyalty, honor and respect. It means I am faithful. It also means that I will not intentionally or carelessly behave in a way which causes upset or doubt. It means, at the lowest level, You will break these terms before I do.Communication is essential. Trust is paramount.Be completely honest and dont make promises that you cant keep, thats all." - Author: Eva Schuette

Quotes About Mystery And Beauty

"Cruelty is a mystery, and the waste of pain. But if we describe a world to compass these things, a world that is a long, brute game, then we bump against another mystery: the inrush of power and light…unless all ages and races of men have been deluded by the same mass hypnotist (who?), there seems to be such a thing as beauty, a grace wholly gratuitous…we dont know whats going on here. If these tremendous events are random combinations of matter run amok, the yield of millions of monkeys at millions of typewriters, then what is it in us, hammered out of those same typewriters, that they ignite? We must somehow take a wider view, look at the whole landscape, really see it, and describe whats going on here. Then we can at least wail the right question into the swaddling band of darkness, or, if it comes to that, choir the proper praise." - Author: Annie Dillard

Quotes About Horse

"The girl and Doctor Reefy began their courtship on a summer afternoon. He was forty-five then and already he had begun the practice of filling his pockets with the scraps of paper that became hard balls and were thrown away. The habit had been formed as he sat in his buggy behind the jaded white horse and went slowly along country roads. On the papers were written thoughts, ends of thoughts, beginnings of thoughts.One by one the mind of Doctor Reefy had made the thoughts. Out of many of them he formed a truth that arose gigantic in his mind. The truth clouded the world. It became terrible and then faded away and the little thoughts began again.("Paper Pills")" - Author: Sherwood Anderson

Quotes About Strong Army

"I doubt that my sense of personal freedom is any stronger than anybody elses. Im happy to respect authority when its genuine authority, based on moral or intellectual or even technical superiority. Im eager to follow a hero if we can find one. But I tend to resist or evade any kind of authority based merely on the power to coerce. Government, for example. The Army tried to train us to salute the uniform, not the man. Failed. I will salute the man, maybe, if I think hes worthy of it, but I dont salute uniforms anymore." - Author: Edward Abbey
