Quotes About Being Self Obsessed

Quotes About Proving Others Wrong

"Body acceptance means, as much as possible, approving of and loving your body, despite its "imperfections", real or perceived. That means accepting that your body is fatter than some others, or thinner than some others, that your eyes are a little crooked, that you have a disability that makes walking difficult, that you have health concerns that you have to deal with — but that all of that doesnt mean that you need to be ashamed of your body or try to change it. Body acceptance allows for the fact that there is a diversity of bodies in the world, and that theres no wrong way to have one." - Author: Golda Poretsky

Quotes About Flawed Society

Quotes About Brother In Laws

"These kids dont have a little brother working in the coal mine, they dont have a little sister coughing her lungs out in the looms of the big mill towns of the Northeast. Why? Because we organized; we broke the back of the sweatshops in this country; we have child labor laws. Those were not benevolent gifts from enlightened management. They were fought for, they were bled for, they were died for by working people, by people like us. Kids ought to know that." - Author: Utah Phillips
