[I See Myself As Quite Feminine. But Many People Seem To Think Differently About That; Sometimes People Mistake Me For A Man. In Paris I Often Hear 'bonjour Monsieur'.]

Ashton Shepherd Quotes

"Maybe you could call me a little controlling or I like things to be my way, but since I was a little girl, Ive known what I wanted. Im very rootsy, but it really hadnt ever caused me too much strife. I really know when to say when. Im not too outward but Im very honest."

NJ Hallard Quotes

"Bodies lay in the sun. Bodies stood in the sun."

Jo Baker Quotes

"It was not that long ago that dinner had meant swallowing down whatever you could get your filthy hands on. . . Dinner meant something different here. It meant half a days work for two women. It mean polished crystal and silver, it meant a change of dress for the diners and a special suit of clothes for the servants to serve it up in. Here, dinner meant delay; it meant extending, with all the complexities of preparation and all those rituals of civility, the gap between hunger and its satisfaction. Here, now, it seemed that hunger itself might be relished, because its cessation was guaranteed; there always was - there always would be - meat and vegetables and dumplings and cakes and pies and plates and forks and pleases and thank yous, and endless plates of bread and butter."

Olympia Dukakis Quotes

"God is not something I think about but something I experience as an energy, a Presence. I do find it easier to pray to a female Presence or an androgynous Presence."

Quotes About Rare Things

"My grandmother and my two aunts were an exhibition in resilience and resourcefulness and black womanhood. They rarely talked about the unfairness of the world with the words that I use now with my social justice friends, words like "intersectionality" and "equality", "oppression", and "discrimination". They didnt discuss those things because they were too busy living it, navigating it, surviving it." - Author: Janet Mock

Quotes About Suspence

"A infância é uma época desgraçada, cheia de temores infundados, como o medo de monstros imaginários e do ridículo. Do ponto de vista literário, não tem suspence, já que, salvo excepções, as crianças costumam ser um pouco desenxabidas. Além disso, não têm poder- os adultos decidem por elas e fazem-no mal, inculcam-lhes as suas próprias ideias erróneas sobre a realidade e depois os miúdos passam o resto das suas vidas a tentar livrarem-se delas." - Author: Isabel Allende

Quotes About Impossible Tasks

"Life, as we find it, is too hard for us; it brings us too many pains, disappointments and impossible tasks. In order to bear it we cannot dispense with palliative measures... There are perhaps three such measures: powerful deflections, which cause us to make light of our misery; substitutive satisfactions, which diminish it; and intoxicating substances, which make us insensible to it." - Author: Sigmund Freud

Quotes About The New York Times

"Well, Im not sure the New York Times was consciously trying to trivialise me, but the effect of it is to put everything in the same category as the gossip you read in the magazines you pick up at supermarket counters. I was asked, for example, why I thought there were so many euphemisms for genitalia. Its not a serious question. Whatever the purpose of such a tone is, the effect is to make it appear that anyone who departs from orthodox political doctrine is in some ways laughable." - Author: Noam Chomsky

Quotes About Summon

"...Jesus did not advocate non-violence merely as a technique for outwitting the enemy, but as a just means of opposing the enemy in such a way as to hold open the possibility of the enemys becoming just as well. Both sides must win. We are summoned to pray for our enemies transformation, and to respond to ill-treatment with a love that not only is godly but also, I am convinced, can only be found in God." - Author: Walter Wink
