Quotes About Self Acknowledgment

"Arendt, as we have seen, is committed to understanding totalitarianism in its complete novelty, as an unprecedented phenomenon. It is unprecedented in the strict sense that it does not just represent a novel variation with respect to the categories defining forms of government that we have long held… historically, mankind ‘even in its darkest periods, granted the slain enemy the right to be remembered, as a self-evident acknowledgment of the fact that we are all men (Arendt 1968a: 452). What was attempted in the camps was neither punishment nor persecution but obliteration, such that even death was robbed of its meaning, ‘making martyrdom, for the first time in history, impossible." - Author: Steve Buckler

Quotes About Mothers Kitchen

"Oh, Kathleen!" sighed Nancy as the two went into the kitchen together. "Isnt mother the most interesting scolder you ever listened to? I love to hear her do it, especially when somebody else is getting it. When its I, I grow smaller and smaller, curling myself up like a little worm. Then when she has finished I squirm to the door and wriggle out. Other mothers say: If you dont, I shall tell your father! Do as I tell you, and ask no questions. I never heard of such behavior in my life! Havent you any sense of propriety? If this happens again I shall have to do something desperate. Leave the room at once, and so on; but mother sets you to thinking.""Mother doesnt really scold," Kathleen objected."No, but she shows you how wrong you are, just the same..." - Author: Kate Douglas Wiggin

Quotes About Mad Jack Lionel

"I feel as though I should say something profound, or enact some rite, or trade something to make it official. I want to transfer some trinket which would allow me to say that shes my girl, some kind of currency that proves to people that she likes me back. Something that would permit me to think about her all the time without feeling guilty or helpless or hopelessly far away. I guess Im just so excited, I want to cage this thing like a tiny red bird so if cant fly away, so it stays the same, so its still there the next time. For keeps, like a coin in your pocket. Like a peach pit from Mad Jack Lionels tree. Like scribbled words in a locked suitcase. A bright balloon to tie to your bedpost. And you want to hug it close, hold it, but not so tight it bursts." - Author: Craig Silvey

Quotes About Insecurity And Fear

"The real thing that keeps men and women apart, is fear. Women blame men and men blame women, but the culprit is fear, women are afraid of one thing, men are afraid of a different thing; the fears of women have to do with losing while the fears of men have to do with not being good enough for something. One is loss, the other is insecurity. Men are innately more insecure than women and women are innately more needful of companionship than men. Its good for both men and women to be able to recognize and identify these fears not only within themselves, but within each other, and then men and women will see that they really do need to help each other. Its not a game, its not a competition, the two sexes need one another." - Author: C. JoyBell C.

Quotes About Zones

"But, as I watch this film, I often think that the boy did not know what he was really running toward, that it was not the end zone which awaited him. Somewhere in that ten second dash the running boy turned to metaphor and the older man could see it where the boy couldn not. He would be good at running, always good at it, and he would always run away from the things that hurt him, from the people who loved him, and from the friends empowered to save him. But where do we run when there are no crowds, no lights, no end zones? Where does a man run? the coach said, studying the films of himself as a boy. Where can a man run when he has lost the excuse of games? Where can a man run or where can he hide when he looks behind him and sees that he is only pursued by himself?" - Author: Pat Conroy
