Leymah Gbowee Quotes

"When you move so quickly from innocence to a world of fear, pain and loss, its as if the flesh of your heart and mind gets cut away, piece by piece, like slices taken off a ham. Finally, there is nothing left but bone."

Simon Morden Quotes

"People like us, we think differently, dont we? We are different. We do all the things that others do. But when it comes down to it, we dont need anyone else. Were happy doing what we do and having obligation interferes with that. And sometimes I think we dont even need ourselves. Whats most important is to find out whether were right or not."

Greg DePaul Quotes

"It was quite a wedding and as I stood there watching I realized something Id forgotten a long time ago. Sometimes in life there really are bonds formed that can never be broken. Sometimes you really can find that one person who will stand by you no matter what. Maybe you will find it in a spouse and celebrate it with your dream wedding. But theres also the chance that the one person you can count on for a lifetime, the one person who knows you sometimes better than you know yourself is the same person whos been standing beside you all along."

Alicia K Leppert Quotes

"I felt like a mouse running through one of those cardboard mazes. I didnt have to think about anything I did. My body just...went. The difference was that, unlike the mouse, there was no hunk of cheese waiting for me at the end. No reward of any kind for making it through. In fact, there was no end at all."

Rachel Adler Quotes

"Sexual expression is so powerful a way of bonding with others and so devastating a way of hurting others that it can never be reduced to a mere matter of personal preferences. Sexual desires have immense capacities to order or disorder the social world. Because of this, the social meanings and expressions of sexual desire, connections, and taboos are an organizing component of human societies: Who wants whom? Who belongs with whom? Who is forbidden to whom? What do infractions mean, and what are their consequences?"

Quotes About Complex Analysis

"Darwin himself said as much: If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down. But I can find no such case. Darwin could find no such case, and nor has anybody since Darwins time, despite strenuous, indeed desperate, efforts. Many candidates for this holy grail of creationism have been proposed. None has stood up to analysis." - Author: Richard Dawkins

Quotes About Swim Meets

"What do you miss about being alive?"The sound of my mom singing, a little off-key. The way my dad went to all my swim meets and I could hear his whistle when my head was underwater, even if he did yell at me afterward for not trying harder. I miss going to the library. I miss the smell of clothes fresh out of the dryer. I miss diving off the highest board and nailing the landing. I miss waffles" - p. 272." - Author: Laurie Halse Anderson

Quotes About Loss Of Innocence In War

Quotes About Mihal

"If I start doing more things with my hands, whether thats woodworking or gardening or knitting or baking cookies, I might fall into the condition made famous by the psychologist with the impossible name: Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. That condition is "flow." It means becoming completely involved in an activity not for the sake of the outcome but for the sheer joy of it. It means feeling alive when we are fully in the groove of doing something. According to Csikszentmihalyi, the path to greatest happiness lies not with mindless consuming but with challenging ourselves to experience or produce something new, becoming in the process more engaged, connected and alive." - Author: Catherine Friend

Quotes About Periods Pain

"sufferers of depression, who can elect to keep their feelings private, experience chronic, unremitting emotional alienation. Each moment spent "passing" as normal deepens the sense of disconnection generated by depression in the first instance. In this regard, depression stands as a nearly pure case of impression-management. For depressed individuals, the social requirement to "put on a happy face" requires subjugation of an especially intense inner experience. Yet, nearly unbelievably, many severely depressed people "pull off the act" for long periods of time. The price of the performance is to further exacerbate a life condition that already seems impossibly painful" - Author: David Karp

Quotes About Calpurnia In To Kill A Mockingbird With Page Numbers

"If we limit ourselves to painting as an example, both for brevitys sake and because in that field my ignorance is slightly less complete than it is in others, and if (wrongly, as I think) we agree to start an epoch with Giottos Arena frescoes and then follow the line (nothing short of damnable though such "linear" arguments are) Giotto—Masaccio— Vinci—Michelangelo—Greco, no amount of emphasis on mystical ardors in the case of Greco can obliterate my point for anyone who has eyes that see." - Author: Joseph A.
