Bryant Simon Quotes

"Pretty quickly, I stopped seeing the company as an engine of community. Instead, I saw it as a mythmaker offering only an illusion of belonging and meeting its customers desire for connections in form, maybe, but surely not in substance. Once I came to this conclusion, I started to dig deeper into the companys other promises--great working conditions, musical discovery, fair treatment of farmer, and concern for the environment. Every time I went excavating, the stories turned out to be more complex, more heavily edited, and more ambiguous than I had first thought. Each time, it became clear that Starbucks fulfilled its many promises only in the thinnest, most transitory of ways and that peoples desires went largely unfulfilled."

Quotes About Overcoming Prejudices

"Strangely, the subsequent AIDS works that have become iconic in our culture rarely mention the movement, or the engaged community of lovers, but both formations were inseparable from the crisis itself. Now, looking back, I fear that the story of the isolated helpless homosexual was one far more palatable to the corporations who control the reward system in the arts.The more truthful story of the American mass - abandoning families, criminal governments, indifferent neighbors - is too uncomfortable and inconvenient to recall. The story of how gay people who were despised, had no rights, and carried the burden of a terrible disease came together to force the country to change against its will, is apparently too implicating to tell. Fake tales of individual heterosexuals heroically overcoming their prejudices to rescue helpless dying men with AIDS was a lot more appealing to the powers that be, but not at all true." - Author: Sarah Schulman

Quotes About False Hopes

"Your man may be untroubled about the Future, not because he is concerned with the Present, nut because he has persuaded himself that the Future is going to be agreeable. As long as that is the real cause of his tranquillity, his tranquillity will do us good, because it is only piling up more disappointment, and therefore more impatience, for him when his false hopes are dashed.

Quotes About Lockstep

"Hackberry Hollands greatest fear was his fellow mans propensity to act collectively, in militaristic lockstep, under the banner of God and country. Mobs did not rush across town to do good deeds, and in Hackberrys view, there was no more odious taint on any social or political endeavor than universal approval." - Author: James Lee Burke

Quotes About Good Karate

"To enter into that karaoke mindset, you have to leave behind all your notions of good or bad, right or wrong, in tune or out of tune. The kara in the word karaoke is the same as the one in karate, which means empty hand. Theyre both empty arts because you have no weapons and no musical instruments to hide behind--only courage, your heart, and your will to inflict pain." - Author: Rob Sheffield

Quotes About Honey Boo Boo

"oreign holidaymakers in the Maldives, one of the worlds most popular luxury honeymoon destination, were not happy earlier this year when their hotel bookings were cancelled at short notice.The reason was that Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud, had booked out three whole islands for nearly a month.It is just one example of the growing role of Saudi investment in the archipelago, a factor which may make the Maldives government unwilling to ruffle the feathers of Saudi Arabias rulers."The well-being of our guests is always our primary concern," a spokeswoman for the Anantara resorts told the British newspaper, the Daily Mail, which reported that some tourists were angry at being moved to make way for the Saudi prince." - Author: irak.Ibrahim hussain didi

Quotes About Labour Pain

"Pain is never ennobling, only degrading. And do not be afraid, sir, that there will ever be too little of it in the world to spare mankind its "purification". There will always be human groans enough to fill the sails of that argument. But I am a practical Christian. Unlike you, sir, I relieve suffering, wherever I see it. Your ladies would not object to warm baths, to mitigate labour pains? To opium? It is the same prinicple." - Author: Richard Gordon
