Patrick Califia Rice Quotes

"If a young person is surviving by trading sex for the thing they need, what useful purpose is served by criminalizing that activity? Doesnt everybody have the right to try and survive? it might cost more to create shelters or group homes, drug treatment programs, schools for emancipated minors, counseling services, medical care and job training. But such programs can salvage human lives that are otherwise going to be cut short or wasted. If we can afford massive kiddy porn stings, why cant we afford to do this? Is it because, as a society,we obtain more pleasure out of trying to control young people, and punishing the minors who escape our control, than we would out of taking good care of kids who are in trouble?"

Marie Rutkoski Quotes

"Fairy tales are rife with transformation — from beast to handsome prince, from dirty scullery maid to well-dressed princess.

Quotes About Promiscuous

"If you spend any amount of time doing media analysis, its clear that the most frenzied moral panic surrounding young womens sexuality comes from the mainstream media, which loves to report about how promiscuous girls are, whether theyre acting up on spring break, getting caught topless on camera, or catching all kinds of STIs. Unsurprisingly, these types of articles and stories generally fail to mention that women are attending college at the highest rates in history, and that were the majority of undergraduate and masters students. Well-educated and socially engaged women just dont make for good headlines, it seems." - Author: Jessica Valenti

Quotes About Observing Life

"I wish I were a poet. Ive never confessed that to anyone, and Im confessing it to you, because youve given me reason to feel that I can trust you. Ive spent my life observing the universe, mostly in my minds eye. Its been a tremendously rewarding life, a wonderful life. Ive been able to explore the origins of time and space with some of the great living thinkers. But I wish I were a poet.Albert Einstein, a hero of mine, once wrote, Our situation is the following. We are standing in front of a closed box which we cannot open.Im sure I dont have to tell you that the vast majority of the universe is composed of dark matter.

Maybe those arent the right questions to be asking. What does life depend on?I wish I had made things for life to depend on." - Author: Jonathan Safran Foer

Quotes About Counter Strike

"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
