[For The Several Thousands Of Years Before They Became Firefighters And Physicians, Women Were Sirens, Enchantresses, Snares. At Times It Seems As If Female Powerlessness Is Male Self-preservation In Disguise. And For Millennia, This Has Made For A Zero-sum Game: A Woman's Intelligence Was A Man's Deception.]

Kelley York Quotes

"To be fair, she called this morning. I stared at the phone. Circled it on my bed. And, eventually, it stopped ringing. If it had been important, she wouldve called back, right? That was the line of thought that ran through my head until halfway through the day, when I started to feel bad about it."

Hui Neng Quotes

"When our mind works freely without any hindrance, and is at liberty to come or to go, we attain Samadhi of Prajna, or liberation. Such a state is called the function of thoughtlessness. But to refrain from thinking of anything, so that all thoughts are suppressed, is to be Dharma-ridden, and this is an erroneous view."

Desiderius Erasmus Quotes

"And what is all this life but a kind of comedy, wherein men walk up and down in one anothers disguises and act their respective parts, till the property-man brings them back to the attiring house. And yet he often orders a different dress, and makes him that came but just now off in the robes of a king put on the rags of a beggar. Thus are all things represented by counterfeit, and yet without this there was no living."

The Bhagavad Gita Quotes

Quotes About Nobody Being There

"Nobody would dare look at himself in the mirror, because a grotesque, tragic image would mix in the contours of his face with stains and traces of blood, wounds which cannot be healed, and unstoppable streams of tears. I would experience a kind of voluptuous awe if I could see a volcano of blood, eruptions as red as fire and as burning as despair, burst into the midst of the comfortable and superficial harmony of everyday life, or if I could see all our hidden wounds open, making of us a bloody eruption forever. Only then would we truly understand and appreciate the advantage of loneliness, which silences our suffering and makes it inaccessible. The venom drawn out from suffering would be enough to poison the whole world in a bloody eruption, bursting out of the volcano of our being. There is so much venom, so much poison, in suffering!" - Author: Emil Cioran

Quotes About Famous Prejudices

"A famous bon mot asserts that opinions are like arse-holes, in that everyone has one.

Quotes About Anais Nin

"She had his dark hair, his lashes, and from the glimpse he had, she bore his eyes, as well. But the shape of her face, a perfect oval, was her mothers. She had Anaiss cheeks. Anaiss lovely mouth and proud chin. He kissed her chin, feeling the softest of fluttering against his cheek—babys breath. There was nothing sweeter than the feel of an innocent childs breath against ones cheek—nothing more wondrous than knowing that the baby was your own flesh and blood.Mina stretched against him, yawning widely and throwing her arms up wide alongside her head. He laughed through his tears and reached for her little fist and brought it to his mouth, kissing her with such love he thought he would die of it.

Quotes About Never Ending Problems

"Violence never really deals with the basic evil of the situation. Violence may murder the murderer, but it doesnt murder murder. Violence may murder the liar, but it doesnt murder lie; it doesnt establish truth. Violence may even murder the dishonest man, but it doesnt murder dishonesty. Violence may go to the point of murdering the hater, but it doesnt murder hate. It may increase hate. It is always a descending spiral leading nowhere. This is the ultimate weakness of violence: It multiplies evil and violence in the universe. It doesnt solve any problems." - Author: Martin Luther King Jr.
