Peter Sloterdijk Quotes

"In this book, we will naturally be dealing primarily with the manifestations of the third level of immunity. I gather material on the biography of Homo immunologicus, guided by the assumption that this is where to find the stuff from which the forms of anthropotechnics are made. By this I mean the methods of mental and physical practising by which humans from the most diverse cultures have attempted to optimize their cosmic and immunological status in the face of vague risks of living and acute certainties of death. Only when these procedures have been grasped in a broad tableau of human work on oneself can we evaluate the newest experiments in genetic engineering, to which, in the current debate, many have reduced the term anthropotechnics, reintroduced in 1997."

Gorden Dahlquist Quotes

"Im not sure how old I am, mainly because there are so many different ways to tel time-one one way with clocks and watches and sunsets, or other ways with how many times a person laughs, or what they forget, or how they change their minds about what they care about, or why, or whom. And there are times when something happens that you dont understand- but somehow you still know its important- like walking through a door you only notice when you hear it lock behind."

Caprice Crane Quotes

"One moment follows another. Next comes from previous. So you have to stay on your toes. Protect yourself. Listen to that little voice inside you that says, "Dont do that! You wont like the consequences." Look at all the stuff thats happened to you along the twisting road of your life—good and bad"

Quotes About Overwhelming Emotions

"Culture alone cannot explain the phenomena of such high rates of eating disorders. Eating disorders are complex, but what they all seem to have in common is the ability to distract women from the memories, sensations, and experience of the sexual abuse through starving, bingeing, purging, or exercising. They keep the focus on food, body image, weight, fat, calories, diets, miles, and other factors that women focus on during the course of an eating disorder. These disorders also have the ability to numb a woman from the overwhelming emotions resulting from the sexual abuse — especially loss of control, terror, and shame about her body. Women often have a combination of eating disorders in in their history. Some women are anorexic during one period of their life, bulimic during another, and compulsive eaters at yet another stage." - Author: Karen A. Duncan

Quotes About Strangers Become Lovers

"I thought Marcus was going to be in my life forever. Then I thought I was wrong. Now hes back. But this time I know whats certain: Marcus will be gone again, and back again and again and again because nothing is permanent. Especially people. Strangers become friends. Friends become lovers. Lovers become strangers. Strangers become friends once more, and over and over. Tomorrow, next week, fifty years from now, I know Ill get another one-word postcard from Marcus, because this one doesnt have a period signifying the end of the sentence.Or the end of anything at all." - Author: Megan McCafferty

Quotes About Absurdity

"So long as authority inspires awe, confusion and absurdity enhance conservative tendencies in society. Firstly, because clear and logical thinking leads to a cumulation of knowledge (of which the progress of the natural sciences provides the best example) and the advance of knowledge sooner or later undermines the traditional order. Confused thinking, on the other hand, leads nowhere in particular and can be indulged indefinitely without producing any impact upon the world." - Author: Stanislav Andreski

Quotes About Confidence In Your Beauty

"Thats the key, you know, confidence. I know for a fact that if you genuinely like your body, so can others. It doesnt really matter if its short, tall, fat or thin, it just matters that you can find some things to like about it. Even if that means having a good laugh at the bits of it that wobble independently, occasionally, thats all right. It might take you a while to believe me on this one, lots of people dont because they seem to suffer from self-hatred that precludes them from imagining that a big woman could ever love herself because they dont. But I do. I know what Ive got is a bit strange and difficult to love but those are the very aspects that I love the most! Its a bit like people. Ive never been particularly attracted to the uniform of conventional beauty. Im always a bit suspicious of people who feel compelled to conform. I personally like the adventure of difference. And whats beauty, anyway?" - Author: Dawn French

Quotes About Woodwinds

"I play trumpet. And I took all the music courses in college, so I can also play the string instruments, keyboard, the brass and woodwinds - but only well enough to teach them. If you put a violin in front of me, you wouldnt say, My God, that guy can play. Itd probably sound more like Jack Benny." - Author: Jon Tester
