Kevin Malarkey Quotes

"Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow. Awareness of others is a healthy antidote to this self-focus."

Quotes About Senses Smell

"In NY sensuality completely turns into sexuality - no objects for the senses to respond to, no beautiful river, houses, people. Awful smells of the street, and dirt... Nothing except eating, if that, and the frenzy of the bed." - Author: Susan Sontag

Quotes About Wergeland

"Jonas Wergelands first stroke of genius, albeit unbeknownst to himself, was to choose a girl as his best friend. It was Nefertiti who taught him that women are, first and foremost, teachers then mistresses - and above all that when you come right down to it, the female is a very different and, more o the point, a much more fascinating creature than the male." - Author: Jan Kj

Quotes About Debt Of Honor

"A year earlier, no company had been accorded more faith than Enron; by late November, none was trusted less. And so, a gasping gurgle, a desperate SOS: Enron, the emblem of free markets, the champion of deregulation, reached into its depleted treasury and forked over $100,000 to each of the major political parties campaign war chests. Then, it shuttered its online trading unit - its erstwhile gem. On November 28, Standard & Poors downgraded Enron to junk-bond level - which triggered provisions in Enrons debt requiring it to immediately repay billions of its obligations. This it could not do. Its stock was seventy cents and falling, and, now, no gatekeepers and no credit remained. Accordingly, in the first week of December, Enron, the archetype of shareholder value, availed itself of the time-honored protection for those who have lost their credit: bankruptcy." - Author: Roger Lowenstein

Quotes About Double Standards In The Workplace

"Double standards in domestic roles are deeply rooted in cultural attitudes and workplace practices. Working mothers are held to higher standards than working fathers and are often criticized for being insufficiently committed, either as parents or professionals. Those who seem willing to sacrifice family needs to workplace demands appear lacking as mothers. Those who take extended leave or reduced schedules appear lacking as leaders." - Author: Barbara Kellerman

Quotes About Gabby

"Im not your boyfriend!" I snapped, trying to gently move her hands away from my body."How can you say that?" Sara asked in horror."Its shockingly effortless," I replied. "My vocal chords vibrate, and my mouth and tongue articulate. I can even do it without thinking." I had to remind myself to stay calm, and sarcasm was the best way to do that."When are you going to give me a key to your house so I dont have to knock like some guest?" Sara asked, coming at me again.I backed away. "How about never? Is never good for you?"Sara, undeterred, said, "Youre the reason I go to therapy on Fridays.""The plot thickens!" Gabby exclaimed for comedic relief." - Author: Laura Kreitzer

Quotes About Your Ex Boyfriend

"The day my mother gave us the keys, she also made me and Greta sign a form so that the bank knew our signatures. To get in we had to show our key and sign something so they would know it was really us. I was worried that my signature wouldnt look the same. I wasnt sure when that thing would happen that made it so you always signed your name exactly the same, but it hadnt happened to me yet. So far Id only had to sign something three times. Once for a code of conduct for the eighth grade field trip to Philadelphia, once for a pact I made with Beans and Frances Wykoski in fifth grade that wed never have boyfriends until high school. (Of the three of us, Im the only one who kept that pact.)" - Author: Carol Rifka Brunt
