[I Figured The Government Wouldn't Let Poison Flow From The Taps. But In General, I'm Too Trusting Of The Government. I'm The Polar Opposite Of The Tea Partiers. I Have No Problem With A Nanny State. But In This Case, The Nanny State Has Been Chatting On The Cell Phone And Ignoring The Baby As It Plays With Matches.]

Sierra Demulder Quotes

"When he sleeps,the snoring does not bother me:the rhythmic growl, gravel shovedacross the sidewalk of his throat.It is the grasping, desperate wayin which he takes in air—his gulping lungsas if every dream is filled with waterand he is trying to inflatethe life jacket under his skin.I babble in my sleep. He believesI am trying to tell him how my heart works,says he will translate the manual one day.I want to ask him: am I the ocean?Are you drowning in everythingI dont say when Im awake?"—Heart Apnea"

Quotes About Heartwarming Mothers

"Postfeminism, as a term, suggests that women have made plenty of progress because of feminism, but that feminism is now irrelevant and even undesirable because it supposedly made millions of women unhappy, unfeminine, childless, hairy, lonely, bitter and prompted them to fill their closets with combat boots and really bad India print skirts. Supposedly women have gotten all they could out of feminism, are now "equal," and so can, by choice, embrace things we used to see as sexist, like a TV show in which some self-satisfied lunk samples the wares of twenty-five women before rejecting twenty-four and keeping the one he likes best, or like the notion that mothers should have primary responsibility for raising the kids. Postfeminism means that you can now work outside the home even in jobs previously restricted to men, go to graduate school, pump iron, and pump your own gas, as long as you remain fashion conscious, slim, nurturing, deferential to men, and become a doting, selfless mother." - Author: Susan Douglas
