Quotes About Trying Harder In A Relationship

"Often men who have been emotionally neglected and abused as children by dominating mothers bond with assertive women, only to have their childhood feelings of being engulfed surface. While they could not smash their mommy and still receive love, they find that they can engage in intimate violence with partners who respond to their acting out by trying harder to connect with them emotionally, hoping that the love offered in the present will heal the wounds of the past. If only one party in the relationship is working to create love, to create the space of emotional connection, the dominator model remains in place and the relationship just becomes a site for continuous power struggle." - Author: Bell Hooks

Quotes About Small Details

"Fragments of a vessel which are to be glued together must match one another in the smallest details, although they need not be like one another. In the same way a translation, instead of resembling the meaning of the original, must lovingly and in detail incorporate the originals mode of signification, thus making both the original and the translation recognizable as fragments of a greater language, just as fragments are part of a vessel." - Author: Walter Benjamin

Quotes About True Meaning Of Love

Quotes About Committed

"I think being a liberal, in the true sense, is being nondoctrinaire, nondogmatic, non-committed to a cause - but examining each case on its merits. Being left of center is another thing; its a political position. I think most newspapermen by definition have to be liberal; if theyre not liberal, by my definition of it, then they can hardly be good newspapermen. If theyre preordained dogmatists for a cause, then they cant be very good journalists; that is, if they carry it into their journalism."[Interview with Ron Powers (Chicago Sun Times) for Playboy, 1973]" - Author: Walter Cronkite
