Nell Grey Quotes

"When I was seventeen I found a man, or maybe he found me. Away from home for the first time, out of reach of my fathers archaic restrictions and my mothers culinary insistence, I cut off my hair, dropped my Christian name, wore black and toyed with anorexia, passing incognito among the city workers, just another ant in that vast heap."

Robert M Sapolsky Quotes

"Males who do extreme amounts of exercise, such as professional soccer players and runners who cover more than 40 or 50 miles a week, have less LHRH, LH, and testosterone in their circulation, smaller testes, less functional sperm. They also have higher levels of glucocorticoids in their bloodstreams, even in the absence of stress. (A similar decline in reproductive function is found in men who are addicted to opiate drugs.)"

Ernesto Sabato Quotes

"Porque a medida que nos relacionamos de manera abstracta más nos alejamos del corazón de las cosas y una indiferencia metafísica se adueña de nosotros, [....] el hombre está perdiendo el diálogo con los demás y el reconocimiento del mundo que lo rodea siendo, que es allí donde se dan el encuentro, la posibilidad del amor, los gestos supremos de la vida."

Suzy Kline Quotes

Julie Klassen Quotes

"Do you not pray, Miss Smallwood?She avoided his gaze. No.God is speaking to you every day, he said softly. You might return the favor.She raised her chin. I dont hear Him.Do you listen?She looked at him, clearly offended, then turned away again. I used to pray, until I found God was not listening, at least not to my prayers.[He] heard the inner voice of caution but barreled ahead. He was listening. But He doesnt always answer the way we would like Him to."

Aaron Carter Quotes

"Animals keep you company when youre really lonely. It helps because when you have a friend around who always likes you no matter what - its harder to feel bad or down."

Erma Bombeckk Quotes

"The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, converting one anothers desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together."

Thomas Dubay Quotes

"A man in trouble laments that he did not listen to his teachers, and thus he finds himself in a sad state, utter ruin. A candid admission of a blunder is refreshing and not often heard in human affairs. It is the saint alone who is large-minded enough to think and speak in this way. This is part of his authenticity.The person who is swift to hear and slow to respond is a stranger to an all-knowing illuminism. He believes that others, too, have some truth, and he is willing to be instructed by them. He is ready for the mind of God."

Amy Carlson Quotes

"I like clothes that are easy to wear. I like to be comfortable and confident."

Quotes About Order And Discipline

"Every room Ive lived in since I was given my own room at eleven was lined with, and usually overfull of, books. My employment in bookstores was always continuous with my private hours: shelving and alphabetizing, building shelves, and browsing-- in my collection and others-- in order to understand a small amount about the widest possible number of books. Such numbers of books are constantly acquired that constant culling is necessary; if I slouch in this discipline, the books erupt. Ive also bricked myself in with music--vinyl records, then compact discs. My homes have been improbably information-dense, like capsules for survival of a nuclear war, or models of the interior of my own skull. That comparison--room as brain-- is one Ive often reached for in describing the rooms of others, but it began with the suspicion that Id externalized my own brain, for anyone who cared to look." - Author: Jonathan Lethem

Quotes About Tattoos And Piercings

"Beside me, Molly rolled her shoulders in a few jerky motions and pushed at her hair in fitful little gestures. She tugged at her well-tattered skirts, and grimaced at her boots. "Can you see if theres any mud on them?" I paused to consider her for a second. Then I said, "You have two tattoos showing right now, and you probably used a fake ID to get them. Your piercings would set off any metal detector worth the name, and youre featuring them in parts of your anatomy your parents wish you didnt yet realize you had. Youre dressed like Frankenhooker, and your hair has been dyed colors I previously thought existed only in cotton candy." I turned to face the door again. "I wouldnt waste time worrying about a little mud on the boots." - Author: Jim Butcher

Quotes About Decorating A Room

"It was Carrot whod suggested to the Patrician that hardened criminals should be given the chance to serve the community by redecorating the homes of the elderly, lending a new terror to old age and, given Ankh-Morporks crime rate, leading to at least one old lady having her front room wallpapered so many times in six months that now she could only get in sideways." - Author: Terry Pratchett

Quotes About Moaning

"It will come with a rush and a roar and a shudder. It will come howling and laughing and shrieking and moaning.

You will feel it before it comes and you will tense yourself for acceptance and the earth which is your eternal bed will tremble at the moment of your union." - Author: Dalton Trumbo

Quotes About Guys Being Dumb

"Ubuntu [...] speaks of the very essence of being human. [We] say [...] "Hey, so-and-so has ubuntu." Then you are generous, you are hospitable, you are friendly and caring and compassionate. You share what you have. It is to say, "My humanity is caught up, is inextricably bound up, in yours." We belong in a bundle of life. We say, "A person is a person through other persons."[...] A person with ubuntu is open and available to others, affirming of others, does not feel threatened that others are able and good, for he or she has a proper self-assurance that comes from knowing that he or she belongs in a greater whole and is diminished when others are humiliated or diminished, when others are tortured or oppressed, or treated as if they were less than who they are." - Author: Desmond Tutu

Quotes About Decolonization

"And it is clear that in the colonial countries the peasants alone are revolutionary, for they have nothing to lose and everything to gain. The starving peasant, outside the class system is the first among the exploited to discover that only violence pays. For him there is no compromise, no possible coming to terms; colonization and decolonization a simply a question of relative strength." - Author: Frantz Fanon
