[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.]

Blake OConnor Quotes

"Religious teachings say that animals dont have souls, but I dont believe that. Our pets cherish our every move, and wait patiently for us to return home from a days work. Our pets would give their lives for us in a heartbeat and not ask for anything in return. How can man live without companionship when we were meant to live in a family unit, just like our canine friends? So, I ask you: How could a dog not have a soul?"

Vesna Bailey Quotes

"...you are my rainbow to keep. My eyes will always be watching you; never will I lose sight of you."

Michael Copperman Quotes

"...But if we are to say anything important, if fiction is to stay relevant and vibrant, then we have to ask the right questions. All art fails if it is asked to be representative—the purpose of fiction is not to replace life anymore than it is meant to support some political movement or ideology. All fiction reinscribes the problematic past in terms of the present, and, if it is significant at all, reckons with it instead of simply making it palatable or pretty. What aesthetic is adequate to the Holocaust, or to the recent tragedy in Haiti? Narrative is not exculpatory—it is in fact about culpability, about recognizing human suffering and responsibility, and so examining what is true in us and about us. If were to say anything important, we require an art less facile, and editors willing to seek it."

Alexia Fast Quotes

"I get very involved in my characters. Sometimes I have a very hard time separating my characters from my life."

Lori Majewski Jonathan Bernstein Quotes

"Michael [Hutchence] is hands down one of the greatest frontmen in music. The style, the voice—all of it. Any way that I was ever influenced by him really comes down to small, pale imitations compared to the real thing. There is a fearlessness about him. Watching him at Wembley Stadium with 70,000 people, he looks as comfortable as if he were in his own living room. — Rob Thomas, Matchbox Twenty"

Wim Wenders Quotes

"Filmmakers and critics wrote about each other and sometimes very harshly. This no longer exists."

Craig Hart Quotes

"By mastering character and plot, you give your book a fighting chance and withoutcharacter and plot, no book can survive."

Dionne Brand Quotes

"He believed in nothing. Which is why his departures and his pursuit of the most intense feelings and acts were so radical, so deep and honest. The truth of life was perfectly clear to him. Nothing was made, every new morning was clear. His only challenge was inward. He had not been disillusioned or had some bad experience that he could put it all down to. He had simply seen the world and that was that. And he understood how slippery every moment was and he liked the thrill of it. Slipping from the knowable to the unknown, walking from one street to the next, being different all the time. In one afternoon he could slip from one personality to another. Why not?"

Darin Gibby Quotes

"The 1850s proved to be the decade of the most prolific patent litigation in Americas history. Lincoln himself was involved, as well as his most three prolific cabinet members: Chase, Seward and Stanton."

We abide the surgeons scalpel to save our own lives, out loved ones lives, but not to save a strangers life. H has no heart, but heartless is the last thing youd call her." - Author: Mary Roach
