[For Twenty-five Years I've Been Speaking And Writing In Defense Of Your Right To Happiness In This World, Condemning Your Inability To Take What Is Your Due, To Secure What You Won In Bloody Battles On The Barricades Of Paris And Vienna, In The American Civil War, In The Russian Revolution. Your Paris Ended With Petain And Laval, Your Vienna With Hitler, Your Russia With Stalin, And Your America May Well End In The Rule Of The Ku Klux Klan! You've Been More Successful In Winning Your Freedom Than In Securing It For Yourself And Others. This I Knew Long Ago. What I Did Not Understand Was Why Time And Again, After Fighting Your Way Out Of A Swamp, You Sank Into A Worse One. Then Groping And Cautiously Looking About Me, I Gradually Found Out What Has Enslaved You: YOUR SLAVE DRIVER IS YOU YOURSELF. No One Is To Blame For Your Slavery But You Yourself. No One Else, I Say!]

Quotes About Facing Danger

"As a child, I read because books–violent and not, blasphemous and not, terrifying and not–were the most loving and trustworthy things in my life. I read widely, and loved plenty of the classics so, yes, I recognized the domestic terrors faced by Louisa May Alcotts March sisters. But I became the kid chased by werewolves, vampires, and evil clowns in Stephen Kings books. I read books about monsters and monstrous things, often written with monstrous language, because they taught me how to battle the real monsters in my life.And now I write books for teenagers because I vividly remember what it felt like to be a teen facing everyday and epic dangers. I dont write to protect them. Its far too late for that. I write to give them weapons–in the form of words and ideas-that will help them fight their monsters. I write in blood because I remember what it felt like to bleed." - Author: Sherman Alexie

Quotes About Imoral

"Da, domnule, un roman e ca o oglinda purtata de-a lungul unui drum batut de multa lume. El va rasfrange in ochi cand seninul cerului albastru, cand noroiul mocirlelor din cale. Iar pe cel ce poarta povara oglinzii in spate il veti invinovati ca e imoral! Oglinda lui arata noroiul, iar voi invinuiti oglinda! Mai bine ati invinui drumul pe care se afla mocirla si, mai mult inca, pe inspectorul drumurilor, care ingaduie sa zaca apa si sa se formeze mocirla." - Author: Stendhal
