Tarja Moles Quotes

"The Swedes have coined the term management by perkele to portray the Finnish managerial approach. Instead of collectively pondering all the possible alternatives and letting every member of the staff from the cleaner to the MD voice their views, as the Swedes do, the Finns act swiftly and dont waste time on the decision-making process. If something isnt happening quickly enough, it is necessary for the top managers to slam their fists on the table and yell, Perkele! Repeatedly, if necessary."

SE Hinton Quotes

"Suddenly it wasnt only a personal thing to me. I could picture hundreds and hundreds of boys living on the wrong sides of cities, boys with black eyes who jumped at their own shadows. Hundreds of boys who maybe watched sunsets and looked at stars and ached for something better. I could see boys going down under street lights because they were mean and tough and hated the world, and it was too late to tell them that there was still good in it, and they wouldnt believe you if you did."

Quotes About Painted Sky

"The office Halloween party was at the Royalton last week and I went as a mass murderer, complete with a sign painted on my back that read MASS MURDERER (which was decidedly lighter than the sandwich board I had constructed earlier that day that read DRILLER KILLER), and beneath those two words I had written in blood Yep, thats me and the suit was also covered with blood, some of it fake, most of it real. In one fist I clenched a hank of Victoria Bells hair, and pinned next to my boutonniere (a small white rose) was a finger bone Id boiled the flesh off of. As elaborate as my costume was, Craig McDermott still managed to win first place in the competition. He came as Ivan Boesky, which I thought was unfair since a lot of people thought Id gone as Michael Milken last year.

Quotes About Good Forests

"Humans, as a rule, dont like mad people unless they are good at painting, and only then once they are dead. But the definition of mad, on Earth, seems to be very unclear and inconsistent. What is perfectly sane in one era turns out to be insane in another. The earliest humans walked around naked with no problem. Certain humans, in humid rainforests mainly, still do so. So, we must conclude that madness is sometimes a question of time, and sometimes of postcode. Basically, the key rule is, if you want to appear sane on Earth you have to be in the right place, wearing the right clothes, saying the right things, and only stepping on the right kind of grass." - Author: Matt Haig

"Back to what? A guy who bails on you when you need him? Whats Dane doing now thats more important than helping you? Fighting for the rights of endangered ferns?"I stiffened and pushed away from him, irritation jolting me out of my fugue-state. "You have no right to judge Dane or my relationship with him."Jack made a scoffing sound. "That half-assed excuse for a relationship was over the moment Dane told you not to bring the baby to Austin. You know what he should have said?...Hell, yes, Ella, Ill stand by you no matter what you do. Shit happens. Well make it work. Come home now and get in bed." - Author: Lisa Kleypas

Quotes About Being Sexually Liberated

"In 2004 our forty-second president, George W. Bush, the leader of the free world, proposed an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to forever ban gay marriage--which was already illegal. In opinion polls, about 50 percent of this country said they thought Bush had the right idea. If half this country feels so threatened by two people of the same gender being in love and having sex (and, incidentally, enjoying equal protection under the law), that they turn their attention--during wartime--to blocking rights already denied to homosexuals, then all the cardio striptease classes in the world arent going to render us sexually liberated." - Author: Ariel Levy
