[I Happened To Look Up And There It Was. All Over And Done With, At Last. I Sat On For A Few Moments With The Ball In My Hand And The Dog Yelping And Pawing At Me. (Pause.) Moments. Her Moments, My Moments (Pause.) The Dog's Moments.]

Heather Hepler Quotes

"I know the mall is just a lot of fake plants and fake food and people buying crap for too much money, and at Christmas people pay for their kids to talk to Santa, learning greed the way some kids learn piano. I know all that. I can hear the Muzak, smell the waffle fries. Like everybody else, I walk around stuck inside a cliche, like were stars of some TV show we plan to watch later, if nothing else is on. But still, theres something hopeful about this place, too, and maybe it takes having a crazy mother to get that. People buy stuff, because they think they are going to need it, because they think their lives are going to keep skipping down the same old path, and I want so much for that to be true for them that it nearly makes me cry. The mall says, Nothing is terrible. The mall says, Life is small and adequate."

Quotes About Individual Freedom

"After analyzing our current crisis and studying well-establishedhistorical precedents, I must conclude that the global bankers haveonly three possible cards left to play.The first is admitting culpability and working to restore theAmerican economic engine to its free-market potential. History hastaught us that the ruling class rarely admits error and never concedespower.The second is to foment so much civil unrest and fear that thegeneral population will be clamoring for a global dictator who willprovide them food, shelter, and security in exchange for their individualfreedom and sovereignty. I see the emerging militancy of thelabor union movement playing right into this scenario.The final play is global conflict where they can try and controlthe outcome by means of funding both sides." - Author: Ziad K.

Quotes About Life Is A Constant Change

"Too often, the notion of progress is used as a code word for perfection, the chain of being in a different guise. The term should be employed with caution. Some see an arrow of time in biology, as in physics, but in the opposite direction- a relentless tendency to improve, just as a universe has a built-in trend towards chaos and disorder. That is too optimistic. Some lineages get more complicated, some simpler, and much of life has to struggle to stay in the same place. If everyone is evolving, nobody can afford to stop, and there may be constant change with no overall advance at all." - Author: Steve Jones

Quotes About Harvesting Wheat

"I lost the letter in rather embarrassing circumstances. We were to dine at Parramatta Government House that same evening, and Peter had come in early from harvesting the wheat, sitting down in all his dirt to read the precious missive. I sat beside him, fresh from my bath. And so handsome did my husband look, long legs sprawled in Dungaree trousers and frowning over my fathers spiky hand, that I could not resist reaching out to smooth away the frown. He caught my hand to his lips, still reading, and then chancing to look up, and reading my face more swiftly than he would ever read the written word, pulled me onto his lap." - Author: Jennifer Paynter

Quotes About Seeing The World Through Different Perspectives

"But if man genuinely produces man, it is precisely not through work and its concrete results, not even the work on oneself so widely praised in recent times, let alone through the alternatively invoked phenomena of interaction or communication: it is through life in forms of practice. Practice is defined here as any operation that provides or improves the actors qualification for the next performance of the same operation, whether it is declared as practice or not." - Author: Peter Sloterdijk
