Barbara Ehrenreich Quotes

"Then, in the 1980s, came the paroxysm of downsizing, and the very nature of the corporation was thrown into doubt. In what began almost as a fad and quickly matured into an unshakable habit, companies were restructuring, reengineering, and generally cutting as many jobs as possible, white collar as well as blue . . . The New York Times captured the new corporate order succintly in 1987, reporting that it eschews loyalty to workers, products, corporate structures, businesses, factories, communities, even the nation. All such allegiances are viewed as expendable under the new rules. With survival at stake, only market leadership, strong profits and a high stock price can be allowed to matter."

Eric Lowitt Quotes

"If left unexecuted, even the greatest competitive strategies are not worth the paper on which they were written."

Laila Lalami Quotes

"His anger took many shapes: sometimes soft and familiar, like a round stone he had caressed for so long that is was perfectly smooth and polished; sometimes it was thin and sharp like a blade that could slice through anything; sometimes it had the form of a star, radiating his hatred in all directions, leaving him numb and empty inside."

Vanessa Kelly Quotes

"Linnets thudding heart raced blood through her veins, sending a flush of embarrassing heat to her face. She had been avoiding him, but she could never tell him why. It took all her discipline not to quail under Sir Anthonys penetrating gaze. Blast the man. Shed lost count of the times hed made her feel like a blushing maiden. Strictly speaking, she was still a maiden, but shed given up blushing years ago—along with simpering, flirting, and so many other talents deemed useful to unmarried women. Except, of course, in Sir Anthonys august presence."

"David Bowie, for me, was the butchest guy in town. Jagger was like a truck driver."

Jeremy Miller Quotes

"I have attention deficit disorder, so sitting in a classroom is not the best thing for me."

Pauline Gedge Quotes

"The feathery palms that lined the drainage canals, the acacia thorns and sycamores, all glistened with the sheen of new, pale-green leaves, and in Khaemwasets gardens the vivid clusters of flowers had begun to bloom with an abandon that assaulted the eyes and filled the nostrils with delight."

George MacDonald Quotes

"Few delights can equal the presence of one whom we trust utterly."

Donald Woods Winnicott Quotes

"It is in playing and only in playing that the individual child or adult is able to be creative and to use the whole personality, and it is only in being creative that the individual discovers the self."

Quotes About Obediencia

"El mundo de la política en nada se asemeja a los parvularios; en materia política, la obediencia y el apoyo son una misma cosa. Y del mismo modo que tú apoyaste y cumplimentaste una política de unos hombres que no deseaban compartir la tierra con el pueblo judío ni con otros ciertos pueblos de diversa nación -como si tú y tus superiores tuvierais el derecho de decidir quién puede y quién no puede haber el mundo-, nosotros consideramos que nadie, es decir, ningún miembro de la raza humana puede desear compartir la tierra contigo. Esta es la razón, la única razón, por la que has de ser ahorcado." - Author: Hannah Arendt

Quotes About You Not Caring

"He stepped close to her; she could feel his breath on her neck. "Eve, you make me not want to die."She turned to see his face. "I didnt want to be this, and now its all I am."He put his hands on her cheeks. The look on his face did her in. He was kind, caring, and mourning her losses. Tears wet his cheeks. Eve felt a very deep sob choke her. If he was mourning, so could she.He pulled her into his arms. "Cry. Its okay. Cry."Eve felt her knees give. He caught her and carried her to his couch. He petted her hair and let her empty her pain and guilt onto his chest. He kissed the top of her head. For the first time, his actions toward her seemed to have no sexual intent whatsoever.Eve let go of a rope shed clung to for too long. And she fell. She fell right into him. Wrong or right, she gave up judging. Her lips found his, and he kissed her gently, not demanding any more than she was willing to offer." - Author: Debra Anastasia

Quotes About Ankara

"I wished I could explain it to those I loved, my mother, to Japhy, but there just werent any words to describe the nothingness and purity of it. "Is there a certain and definite teaching to be given to all living creatures?" was the question probably asked to beetle browed snowy Dipankara, and his answer was the roaring silence of the diamond." - Author: Jack Kerouac

Quotes About Thesis Defense

"We may test the hypothesis that the State is largely interested in protecting itself rather than its subjects by asking: which category of crimes does the State pursue and punish most intensely—those against private citizens or those against itself?The gravest crimes in the States lexicon are almost invariably not invasions of private person or property, but dangers to its own contentment, for example, treason, desertion of a soldier to the enemy, failure to register for the draft, subversion and subversive conspiracy, assassination of rulers and such economic crimes against the State as counterfeiting its money or evasion of its income tax.Or compare the degree of zeal devoted to pursuing the man who assaults a policeman, with the attention that the State pays to the assault of an ordinary citizen. Yet, curiously, the States openly assigned priority to its own defense against the public strikes few people as inconsistent with its presumed raison detre." - Author: Murray N. Rothbard

Quotes About New Love For Her

"It is by loving, and not by being loved, that one can come nearest the soul of another; yea, that, where two love, it is the loving of each other, that originates and perfects and assures their blessedness. I knew that love gives to him that loveth, power over over any soul be loved, even if that soul know him not, bringing him inwardly close to that spirit; a power that cannot be but for good; for in proportion as selfishness intrudes, the love ceases, and the power which springs therefrom dies. Yet all love will, one day, meet with its return." - Author: George MacDonald

Quotes About Inferiority Complex

"Its definitely difficult being a woman and growing up a girl. When youre graceful, people say you lack personality; when youre serene, people say youre boring; when youre confident, people say youre arrogant; when youre feminine, people say youre too girly; and when you climb trees, people say youre too much of a tomboy! As a woman, you really need to develop a very strong sense of self and the earlier you can do that, the better! You have to be all the things that you are, without allowing other peoples ignorance change you! I realized that they dont know what grace is, they cant identify serenity, they have inferiority complexes, they are incapable of being feminine, and they dont know how to climb trees!" - Author: C.

Quotes About Leaves Falling Off Trees

"Sometimes fate or life or whatever you want to call it, leaves a door a little open and you walk through it. But sometimes it locks the door and you have to find the key, or pick the lock, or knock the damn thing down. And sometimes, it doesnt even show you the door, and you have to build it yourself. But if you keep waiting for the doors to be opened for you... I think youll have a hard time finding single happiness, let alone that double portion." - Author: Gayle Forman
