Quotes About Blooming Flower

"I felt after I finished Slaughterhouse-Five that I didnt have to write at all anymore if I didnt want to. It was the end of some sort of career. I dont know why, exactly.

Quotes About Surviving School

"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?" - Author: Patrick Califia Rice
