Cathy Caruth Quotes

"If Freud turns to literature to describe traumatic experience, it is because literature, like psychoanalysis, is interested in the complex relation between knowing and not knowing, and it is at this specific point at which knowing and not knowing intersect that the psychoanalytic theory of traumatic experience and the language of literature meet."

Delroy Lindo Quotes

Quotes About John Gagliardi

"If God is love (1 John 4:7) but intended Christs atoning death to be the propitiation for only certain people so only they have any chance of being saved, then love has no intelligible meaning when referring to God. All Christians agree that God is love. But believers in limited atonement must interpret Gods love as somehow compatible with God unconditionally selecting some people to eternal torment in hell when He could save them (because election to salvation and thus salvation itself is unconditional)." - Author: Roger E. Olson

Quotes About Equality In Sports

"The extreme inequality of our ways of life, the excess of idleness among some and the excess of toil among others, the ease of stimulating and gratifying our appetites and our senses, the over-elaborate foods of the rich, which inflame and overwhelm them with indigestion, the bad food of the poor, which they often go withotu altogether, so hat they over-eat greedily when they have the opportunity; those late nights, excesses of all kinds, immoderate transports of every passion, fatigue, exhaustion of mind, the innumerable sorrows and anxieties that people in all classes suffer, and by which the human soul is constantly tormented: these are the fatal proofs that most of our ills are of our own making, and that we might have avoided nearly all of them if only we had adhered to the simple, unchanging and solitary way of life that nature ordained for us." - Author: Jean Jacques Rousseau

Quotes About Having A Keeper

"Librarians are hot. They have knowledge and power over their domain...It is no coincidence how many librarians are portrayed as having a passionate interior, hidden by a cool layer of reserve. Arent books like that? On the shelf, their calm covers belie the intense experience of reading one. Reading inflames the soul. Now, what sort of person would be the keeper of such books?" - Author: Holly Black

Quotes About Desperation

"Any life hed ever heard of, his own included, was burdened with emotions - love, loss, jobs, jealousy, money, death, pain. But if you were jewish, always there was this extra one, the added pull at your endurance, the one more thing. There was that line in Thoreau about "quiet desperation" - that was indeed true of most men. But for some men and women, for some fathers and mothers and children, the world still contrived that one extra test, endless and unrelenting." - Author: Laura Z. Hobson

Quotes About Ringworld

"A primary reason that people believe that life is getting worse is because our information about the problems of the world has steadily improved. If there is a battle today somewhere on the planet, we experience it almost as if we were there. DuringWorld War II, tens of thousands of people might perish in a battle, and if the public could see it at all it was in a grainy newsreel in a movie theater weeks later. During World War I a small elite could read about the progress of the conflict in the newspaper(without pictures). During the nineteenth century there was almost no access to news in a timely fashion for anyone." - Author: Ray Kurzweil

Quotes About Not Getting Upset

"Finding The Man. Keeping The Man. Not scaring The Man, building up The Man, following The Man, soothing The Man, flattering The Man, deferring to The Man, changing your judgement for The Man, changing your decisions for The Man, polishing floors for The Man, being perpetually conscious of your appearance for The Man, being romantic for The Man, hinting to The Man, losing yourself in The Man. I never had a thought that wasnt yours. Sob, sob. Whenever I act like a human being, they say, What are you getting upset about? They say: of course youll get married. They say: of course youre brilliant. They say: of course youll get a PhD and then sacrifice it to have babies. They say: if you dont, youre the one wholl have two jobs and you can make a go of it if youre exceptional, which very few women are, and if you find a very understanding man. As long as you dont make more money than he does. How do they expect me to live all this junk?" - Author: Joanna Russ
