Catherine Robinson Walker Quotes

"Leadership is a dynamic process that expresses our skill, our aspirations, and our essence as human beings."

Robert Alley Quotes

"We are the better because of a constitution that goes beyond the spirit of the men who wrote it. Most often, in contrast, Christianity is restrictive, overly concerned about the "original intent" of its authors. But the Constitution contains the germ of an idea that allows expansion, going beyond what its founders thought. That is humanism. Humanism affirms, "There is something good even holy in the human spirit." However we define humanism, whatever we say about it, the important thing is that it makes us better."

Baudrillard Jean Quotes

"Consumption is not a passion for substances but a passion for the code"

Amy Robach Quotes

"I have two cousins with juvenile diabetes. They both contracted the disease before the age of 5, and it was so heartbreaking watching them go through daily blood tests and injections. It is such a difficult disease to live with and requires constant attention; a tough thing to explain to a child."

Pat Califia Quotes

"Prostitution, perversion, and pornography are intertwined with independence and radical politics in the history of outstanding women. Radclyffe Hall, Colette, Anaïs Nin, Kate Millett, Erica Jong--all of these women used the money they made from writing about sexuality to make it possible for them to live as rebels, dykes, feminists, artists, or whatever deviant and defiant identities they assumed."

Copernicans Quotes

"After the birth of printing books became widespread. Hence everyone throughout Europe devoted himself to the study of literature... Every year, especially since 1563, the number of writings published in every field is greater than all those produced in the past thousand years. The Paracelsians have created medicine anew and the Copernicans have created astronomy anew. I really believe that at last the world is alive, indeed seething, and that the stimuli of these remarkable conjunctions did not act in vain."

Dave Freudenthal Quotes

"Our lifestyle, our wildlife, our land and our water remain critical to our definition of Wyoming and to our economic future."

Adam Hammond Quotes

"The next time you feel yourself giving in to the sometimes overwhelming urge to panic about the fate of literature in the digital age, follow this simple remedy: remember that you dream. For that is ironclad proof . . . that literature—that narrative art in whatever form—will never die. Humans, strange creatures that we are, make sense of our lives by telling stories. In the space between each day and the next, we refresh our minds by concocting the most fantastic and elaborate fictions. We spend roughly a third of our lives thus, re-arranging our scattered experiences into stories. That we do it at all is bizarre and inexplicable. But as long as we do it, we will crave stories—human stories, stories that speak to us—in our waking life. The Internet, powerful as it is, cannot change that."

Quotes About Caulfield

"J. D. Salingers Holden Caulfield is a literary descendant of Huck Finn: more educated and sophisticated, the son of affluent New Yorkers, but like Huck a youthful runaway from a world of adult hypocrisy, venality and, to use one of his own favourite words, phoniness. What particularly appals Holden is the eagerness of his peers to adopt that corrupt grownup behaviour." - Author: David Lodge

Quotes About Using Your Voice

"When youre using drugs, youre driven by this mystical black energy, a force inside you that just wont quit. And the weaker you get, the more you feed into that energy, and the more it fucks with you. When your spirit becomes dark and your lifestyle becomes dark, your existence is susceptible to infiltration by dark spirits. Ive seen it so many times with addicts. You can see that theyre controlled by dark energy, the way they look, their appearance, their voice, their behavior, its not them." - Author: Anthony Kiedis

Quotes About Eficiencia

"Se sentirá orgullosa de que su hija abandone por un momento su vida íntima, personal y limitada. Y de paso vence mágicamente por unos instantes la desolación chilena, esa desolación, aquella que nunca más nos abandonó, la que aguarda pendenciera y sin lenguaje detrás de nuestra eficiencia, de nuestra civilidad, de nuestro pragmatismo. La que nos dejó para siempre sin calor. ¿Por qué hemos llegado a ser un pueblo tan triste, o es que lo fuimos siempre y no nos dimos cuenta? ¿Cuándo, cuándo perdimos el alma?" - Author: Marcela Serrano

Quotes About Only Being Human

"What said those two souls communicating through the language of the eyes, more perfect than that of the lips, the language given to the soul in order that sound may not mar the ecstasy of feeling? In such moments, when the thoughts of two happy beings penetrate into each others souls through the eyes, the spoken word is halting, rude, and weak—it is as the harsh, slow roar of the thunder compared with the rapidity of the dazzling lightning flash, expressing feelings already recognized, ideas already understood, and if words are made use of it is only because the hearts desire, dominating all the being and flooding it with happiness, wills that the whole human organism with all its physical and psychical powers give expression to the song of joy that rolls through the soul. To the questioning glance of love, as it flashes out and then conceals itself, speech has no reply; the smile, the kiss, the sigh answer." - Author: José Rizal

Quotes About Tragicomic

"We all live in a tragicomic situation, a life that is in part absurd simply because it is not of our own making. We are born into a disordered world, into a family we did not choose, into circumstances we would have had somewhat improved, and we are even called by a name we did not select.

Quotes About Robins
