Jessica Stern Quotes

"People say that rape is not sex, that its violence," Lucy says, bitterly. "But its also sex. You cant get around that," she says. "he didnt run me over with a car. He had sex with me. Youre not supposed to do that. Youre not supposed to have sex with an eighth-grader. Youre not supposed to have sex when youre in eighth grade. It was very intimate. You cant get around it. This part of the body," she says, gesturing from her heart to her lower abdomen, though I understand she means to indicate her vagina. "If youre sitting around with a group of women, talking about various traumas, someone will say, I got beaten by my mother. But if you say, I got raped, its a different thing."I wonder if that is true. Is rape really the worst sort of violation? Im not sure. I often wonder why it matters whether were penetrated or not. There is the pain, but the pain doesnt last. The shame does. (216)"

Samuel Lover Quotes

"When once the itch of literature comes over a man, nothing can cure it but the scratching of a pen. But if you have not a pen, I suppose you must scratch any way you can."

Antal Szerb Quotes

"The staying awake was a great self-sacrificaing gesture of friendship, and wonderfully in keeping with our current mood of intense friendship and religious fervour. We were all in a state of shock. We engaged in a long Dostojevskyan conversations and drank one black coffee after another. It was sort of night typical of youth, the sort you only can look back on with shame and embarassment once youve grown up. But God knows, I must have grown up already by then, because I dont feel the slightest embarassment when I think back to it, just a terrible nostalgia."

Eric A Stanley Quotes

"Taking an abolitionist stance does not mean refusing to engage in incremental change, nor does it mean abandoning efforts to improve conditions inside prisons. Rather, abolitionists engage in abolitionist reforms or non-reformist reforms. These are reforms that either directly undermine the prison industrial complex or provide support to prisoners through strategies that weaken, rather than strengthen, the prison system itself. For example, rather than lobbying for bigger prison health budgets to care for elderly prisoners, an abolitionist reform strategy would aim to get elderly prisoners out on compassionate release to obtain healthcare in the community. --S. Lamble"

Jaga Quotes

"Rather be true friend to one and known by none, than known by many but have no true friends in any"

"I was raised with those principals and values and ethics that came out of the men and women that served. But this generation doesnt quite know; they havent been tested."

Quotes About Military Promotion

"soldiers serving in the Military Police and those serving in the Air Corps (the forerunner of the Air Force) about how good a job they thought their service did in recognizing and promoting people of ability. The answer was clear. Military Policemen had a far more positive view of their organization than did enlisted men in the Air Corps. On the face of it, that made no sense. The Military Police had one of the worst rates of promotion in all of the armed forces. The Air Corps had one of the best. The chance of an enlisted man rising to officer status in the Air Corps was twice that of a soldier in the Military Police. So, why on earth would the Military Policemen be more satisfied? The answer, Stouffer famously explained, is that Military Policemen compared themselves only to other Military Policemen. And if you got a promotion in the Military Police, that was such a rare event that you were very happy. And if you didnt get promoted, you were in the same boat as most of your peers—so" - Author: Malcolm Gladwell

Quotes About Bruges

"Just as I was flung over the threshold, I embraced Grigoire the Swiss Fiancé in a rugger grip, determined that smug cockatoo was coming with me...Stone steps and icy pavements bruised my own flesh as black as his, banged my elbows and hips just as hard, but at least mine was not the only ruined evening in Bruges, and I yelled, kicking his ribs once for each word, before half-running, half-hobbling off on my whacked ankle, Love hurts!" - Author: David Mitchell

Quotes About The School Of Athens

"I suppose there may be a branch president or a high councilor or an elders quorum president or a visiting teacher in the room who wants to know what it is we are to accomplish as Church members when we get together, even if its only in a home evening group or an opportunity to pray together. Well, this passage indicates that it may have something to do with remembering each other. We all count. Everyone matters. We have a name and its recorded and we need to remember that here. No one must get lost. "And their names were taken, that they might be remembered and nourished by the good word of God. . . to keep them continually watchful unto prayer, relying alone upon the merits of Christ . . . to fast and to speak with one another concerning the welfare of their souls . . . to observe that there should be no iniquity among them"--what a great thought about meetings and what they are supposed to do, what a Sunday School class can be, what a scriptural discussion in an apartment can be." - Author: Jeffrey R. Holland

Live your life!" - Author: Json M. Lee
