[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.]

Judith did not move. Her attention had turned again to the row of trunks. "Do you mean to say that every one of those trunks is full of dresses like the one you have on?"

Jeri Smith Ready Quotes

"This time of year," she said, "peoples consciences gnaw at them. They give away truckloads of canned goods and quote Dickens and wring their hands over the ‘less fortunate." We boarded the Metro and took seats perpendicular to each other. "But God forbid anyone should address why theyre poor in the first place, or try to change the structures that keep them poor. Then the ‘less fortunate turn into ‘welfare queens and ‘derelicts. But if I were a lobbyist whoring on behalf of some transnational corporation, Id never hear the word ‘derelict.""So when it comes to taking care of poor people," I said, "if Mother Teresa is the Hallmark card, then youre the electric bill."

Quotes About Best Imitation

"Dont live life as a spectator. Always examine life: Espouse new ideas, long fornew things, constantly discovering new interests, escaping from boringroutines. Engage life with enthusiasm; grasping life aggressively and squeezingfrom it every drop of excitement, satisfaction, and joy. The key to unleashing lifes potential is attitude. The person who approacheslife with a child-like wonder is best prepared to defy the limitations of time, ismore "alive," more of a participant in life than the person who remains aspectator." - Author: Felix Baumgartner

Quotes About Family Without Father

"As I watched my family sip champagne, I thought about how their lives trailed backward and forward from my death and then, I saw, as Samuel took the daring step of kissing Lindsey in a room full of family, became borne aloft away from it. These were the lovely bones that had grown around my absence: the connections- sometimes made at great cost, but often magnificent- that happened after I was gone. And I began to see things in a way that let me hold the world without me in it. The events that my death wrought were merely the bones of a body that would become whole at some unpredictable time in the future. The price of what I came to see as this miraculous body had been my life.My father looked at the daughter who was standing there in front of him. The shadow daughter was gone." - Author: Alice Sebold

Quotes About Wondering What You Mean To Someone

"How do you make someone love you? For the very young, there can be nothing harder in the world. You may try as hard as you like: place yourself beside them, cook their favourite food, bring them wine or sing the love songs that you know will move them. They will not move them. Nothing will move them. You will waste days interpreting the simple banalities of a phone call; months staring at their soft lips as they talk; you will waste years watching a body sitting in a chair and willing every muscle to take you across the room and do a simple thing, say a simple word, make them love you and you will not do it; you will waste long nights wondering how they cannot feel this - the urge to embrace, the snow melt in the heart when you are near them - how they can sit in that chair, or speak with those lips, or make a call and mean nothing by it, hide nothing in their hearts. Or perhaps what they hide is not what you want to see. Because surely they love someone. It simply isnt you." - Author: Andrew Sean Greer

Quotes About Node

"Since the Leeburg Pike [at Tysons Corner] carries six to eight lanes of fast-moving traffic and the mall lacks an obvious pedestrian entrance, I decided to negotiate the street in my car rather than on foot. This is a problem planners call the drive to lunch syndrome, typical of edge nodes where nothing is planned in advance and all the development takes place in isolated pods." - Author: Dolores Hayden

Quotes About Limited

"Well, think about it for a minute. A guy tells you that he loves you and then turns around and buys you flowers…or worse, tells you that he loves you with flowers. Cut flowers die. They die in a few days after being cut…and this is what you guys choose to use as proof of your love? Something that dies in a few days? To me it seems like foreshadowing or something, like your basically saying that our love is beautiful but only for a limited time and then it will wither away to nothing like your flowers." - Author: Jennifer Snyder

Quotes About Town Planning

"I have been told that my above-described theory is all wrong and is only due to my Central European conceit, because the English do not care for the opinion of foreigners. In every other country, it has been explained, people just build streets and towns following their own common sense. England is the only country of the world where there is a Ministry of Town and Country Planning. That is the real reason for the muddle." - Author: George Mikes
