Cheryl Hersha Quotes

"The programme into which Cheryl was inducted combined all the different ways the intelligence community had learned could cause intense psychological change in adults and children. It had been learned through the use of both knowledgeable and unwitting volunteers. They were subjected to sensory overload, isolation, drugs and hypnosis, all used on bodies that had been weakened from mild hunger. The horror of the programme was that it would be like having an elementary school sex education class conducted by a paedophile rapist. It would have been banned had the American government signed the Helsinki Accords. But, of course, they hadnt. For the test that day and in those that followed, Cheryl Hersha was positioned so she faced a portable movie screen. A 16mm movie projector was on a platform, along with several reels of film. Each was a short pornographic film meant to make her aware of sexuality in a variety of forms..."

"Suspended for fighting. It had a ring.

Suspended ... for FIGHTING! It made you sound like something. Like a real badass dude from way back."

Quotes About Salty Sea

"Once we were blobs in the sea, and then fishes, and then lizards and rats and then monkeys, and hundreds of things in between. This hand was once a fin, this hand once had claws! In my human mouth I have the pointy teeth of a wolf and the chisel teeth of a rabbit and the grinding teeth of a cow! Our blood is as salty as the sea we used to live in! When were frightened, the hair on our skin stands up, just like it did when we had fur. We are history! Everything weve ever been on the way to becoming us, we still are. [...]Im made up of the memories of my parents and my grandparents, all my ancestors. Theyre in the way I look, in the colour of my hair. And Im made up of everyone Ive ever met whos changed the way I think." - Author: Terry Pratchett

Quotes About Never Growing Up Peter Pan

"But how can you be Peter Pan? You? The Boy Who Never Grew Up? Thats not you. You have egg on your collar. You cant fly. Youre not Alice. Alice was a blond little girl, I know it. Youre lying to me. And then they remember. What growing up really is: when they learned that boys cant fly and mermaids dont exist and White Rabbits dont talk and all boys grow old, even Peter Pan, as youve grown old. Theyve been deceived. As if youve somehow been lying to them. So following hard on the smile of remembrance is the pain in the eyes, which youve caused, everytime you meet someone." - Author: John Logan

Quotes About To Do Lists

"I listen to the things people want out of love these days and they blow my mind. I go to the pub with the boys from the squad and listen while they explain, with minute precision, exactly what shape a woman should be, what bits she should shave how, what acts she should perform on which date and what she should always or never do or say or want; I eavesdrop on women in cafes while they reel off lists of which jobs a man is allowed, which cars, which labels, which flowers and restaurants and gemstones get the stamp of approval, and I want to shout, Are you people out of your tiny minds?" - Author: Tana French
