"In my view a jazz musician is a great musician."

Melanie Cusick Jones Quotes

"Ambushed by my emotions, I now found myself caught up in an unexpected whirlwind of confusion, embarrassment, hope, and excitement... Was this love? Is this how it felt when you loved someone? A thousand thoughts and impressions a second, with no time or ability to focus on a single one, because the only thing I could see was her. Cassie.Whatever else I knew or wanted, would now--and always--be overshadowed by her. In my head, this sounded extreme, but at the same time, I knew it was true. The center of my world had shifted in what felt like a single second and I realized it was too late for me. There was no way back from here."

Vaino Kaukonen Quotes

"Jos mun tuttuni tulisi,Ennen nähtyni näkyisi,Sille kättä käppäjäisin,Vaikk ois käärme kämmenpäässä,Sille suuta suikkajaisin,Vaikk ois suu suden veressä,Siitä kaulahan kapuisin,Vaikk ois kalma kaulan päällä,Vielä vierehen kävisin,Vaikk ois vierus verta täynnä."

Paula S Rothenberg Quotes

"Can people of color be racist?" I reply, "The answer depends on your definition of racism." If one defines racism as racial prejudice, the answer is yes. People of color can and do have racial prejudices. However, if one defines racism as a system of advantage based on race, the answer is no. People of color are not racist because they do not systematically benefit from racism. And equally important, there is no systematic cultural and institutional support or sanction for the racial bigotry of people of color. In my view, reserving the term racist only for behaviors committed by whites in the context of a white-dominated society is a way of acknowledging the ever-present power differential afforded whites by the culture and institutions that make up the system of advantage and continue to reinforce notions of white superiority. (Using the same logic, I reserve the word sexist for men. Though women can and do have gender-based prejudices, only men systematically benefit from sexism.)"

Quotes About Acquisition

"Since we nowadays think that all a man needs for acquisition of truth is to exert his brain more or less vigorously, and since we consider an ascetic approach to knowledge hardly sensible, we have lost the awareness of the close bond that links the knowing of truth to the condition of purity. Thomas says that unchastitys first-born daughter is blindness of the spirit. Only he who wants nothing for himself, who not subjectively interested, can know the truth. On the other hand, an impure, selfishly corrupted will-to-pleasure destroys both resoluteness of spirit and the ability of the psyche to listen in silent attention to the language of reality." - Author: Josef Pieper
