Patrick Harpur Quotes

"What you knew in your childhood is true; the Otherworld of magic and enchantment is real, sometimes terribly real - and certainly more real than the factual reality which our culture has built up, brick by brick, to shut out colour and light and prevent us from flying."

Stellan Skarsgard Quotes

"There is no overacting, only untrue acting."

Mary C Lamia Quotes

"Volatile expressions of anger and hostility combined with a tendency to blame others often result from feeling shame.... If you are shame-prone, any accusation directed at you, regardless of how mildly it may be delivered, has the potential to make you feel that you have failed or that you are inadequate. Rather than simply admit wrongdoing, you get angry and accusatory in order to hold yourself blameless. Using anger or hostility for self-protection hides your vulnerability and needs. Unfortunately, since most people are repelled by an angry response, this method may be effective. Your anger may drive away the very people who should know your real feelings, and it may deprive you of the opportunity to allow others to be aware of your needs. Behaving in an offensive or frightening way toward others can cause them to retreat out of fear. But, actually, the fear is your own, which you have turned against someone else in the form of anger."

Quotes About Raving

"Evasion of the unadorned immediacy of life is as deep-seated as it is relentless. Even with the ardent desire to be aware and alert in the present moment, the mind flings us into tawdry and tiresome elaborations of past and future. This craving to be otherwise, to be elsewhere, permeates the body, feeling, perceptions, will - consciousness itself. It is like the background radiation from the big bang of birth, the aftershock of having erupted into existence." - Author: Stephen Batchelor

Quotes About Media Stereotypes

"Here is your law enforcement and media question of the day: Was the TV show COPS real or BS?It might have been real incidents, but it wasnt really all that real. They edited the episodes to make it appear as if black people were committing fewer crimes. That is what the show creator John Langley said in a 2009 interview in response to people who were unhappy his long-running reality show, COPS, was showing too many black people getting arrested. What irritates me sometimes is critics still watch and say, Oh look, they misrepresent people of color. Thats absolutely not true. To the contrary, I show more white people than statistically what the truth is in terms of street crime..Its just the reverse. And I do that intentionally, because I do not want to contribute to negative stereotypes, said Langley, the shows producer, in 2009." - Author: Colin Flaherty

Quotes About Teaching Kindergarten

"Barbara is on what is called the womans trip to the exclusion of almost everything else. When she and Tom and Max and Sharon need money, Barbara will take a part-time job, modeling or teaching kindergarten, but she dislikes earning more than ten or twenty dollars a week. Most of the time she keeps house and bakes. "Doing something that shows your love that way," she says, "is just about the most beautiful thing I know." Whenever I hear about the womans trip, which is often, I think a lot about nothin-says-lovin-like-something-from-the-oven and the Feminine Mystique and how it is possible for people to be the unconscious instruments of values they would strenuously reject on a conscious level, but I do not mention this to Barbara." - Author: Joan Didion

Quotes About Difficulties In Love

"During the spring break I read a book called Everlasting. It was a really great book to read. It was about how a girl named Ivy and a boy named Triston were madly in loved but they couldnt be together. Triston had died but he came back to life as another person. But, the problem was that the person that he become was accused as a murderer. So he was being chased. But, even though he was being chased they figured things out and they were together forever. I chose to read this book because when I first started reading it i really liked it. I liked this book a lot because it talked about romance and how they didnt give up. They overcame the difficulties that came before them. What I didnt really like about this book is that many people came in between the love that Ivy and Triston had." - Author: Elizabeth Chandler

Quotes About Making Days Better

"I used to wish I had an easier life," he mused. "Some families sail through years with nothing touching them. They have no tragedies. They go on about how lucky they are. Yet sometimes it seems to me theyre half alive. When something goes wrong for them, and it does for everyone sooner or later, their trauma is much worse. Theyve had nothing bad happen to them before. In the meantime, they think little problems, like losing a wallet, are big deals. They think its ruined their day. They have no idea what a hard days like. Its going to be incredibly tough for them when they find out."Hed also developed his own version of making the most of every minute. "Through Sam I found out how quickly things can change. Because of him Ive learned to appreciate each moment and try not to hold on to things. Lifes more exciting and intense that way. Its like the yogurt that goes off after three days. It tastes so much better than the stuff that lasts three weeks." - Author: Helen Brown
