[I Was Convinced I Was Worth Less Than My Straight Peers. I Was At Best Inauthentic, And The Longer I Went Without Amending That Dishonesty, The More Ashamed I Felt.]

Albert Borris Quotes

"Ive been asked by lots of people, "What happens if you do kill yourself?" They want to know about what it would be like for other people around you, like the person who would find your body, the other kids at school, whoever would have to clean up the blood, what your family holidays would be like."

Quotes About Very

"Right. I look fine. Except I dont, said Zora, tugging sadly at her mans nightshirt. This was why Kiki had dreaded having girls: she knew she wouldnt be able to protect them from self-disgust. To that end she had tried banning television in the early years, and never had a lipstick or a womans magazine crossed the threshold of the Belsey home to Kikis knowledge, but these and other precautionary measures had made no difference. It was in the air, or so it seemed to Kiki, this hatred of women and their bodies-- it seeped in with every draught in the house; people brought it home on their shoes, they breathed it in off their newspapers. There was no way to control it." - Author: Zadie Smith

Quotes About Historical Sources

"The decline of sustained close reading of Eliot is also related, ironically, to the emergence of historical scholarship regarding sources and allusions. The major figure here is Grover Smith, who in the midfifties published an encyclopedic study of Eliots sources. 3 The mere existence of Smiths scholarly tome changed the shape of close readings of Eliot. The poets allusions and sources moved to the foreground of concern, and although most readers of Eliots poetry and plays benefited from Smiths work, others found themselves frustrated by the weight of the intellectual backgrounds." - Author: Jewel Spears Brooker

Quotes About Hawkers

"The spectacle shop was old, long, and narrow, with a glass front and a small thin door that opened onto a somewhat busy avenue in the antiques district on the South side of Lovat. It was a quiet enough area, away from the rougher warrens, but not particularly elevated. Across the cramped street hawkers sold vases, while up the road outside a rug merchants shop a man sold antique suits. There was also Dubois new storefront to the East; he dealt in religious artifacts and trinkets. The shopkeep hadnt liked when he had moved in; it had somehow changed the feel of the warren. Odd folks had started showing up shortly after Saint Olmstead Religious Antiques opened: black-clad priests, Hasturians in yellow robes, and a few Deeper cultists dressed in their gray sackcloth rags. It had set the entire warren on edge." - Author: K. M. Alexander

Quotes About Service To Mankind

"The feeling of righteousness is the core mood alteration among religious addicts. Religious addiction is a massive problem in our society. It may be the most pernicious of all addictions because its so hard for a person to break his delusion and denial. How can anything be wrong with loving God and giving your life for good works and service to mankind?" - Author: John Bradshaw

Quotes About Favourite Singer

"I am back in London in a couple of days and looking forward to Sunday. Here is what we are doing. 1. Going to see my favourite mad transgender folk singer at the Roundhouse. 2. Then I am going to feed you tapas in a little place by Mornington Crescent. 3. Then we will go home in opposite directions and I will stare at my silent phone for weeks, wondering what happened. Or we will go for a dirty hump on Primrose Hill. Or maybe we will just have an awkward kiss/hug loaded with the promise of more next time." - Author: Lucy Robinson

Quotes About Puzzles

"I wasnt able to think about them directly or summon them up in any conscious way, but as I put together their puzzles and played with their Lego pieces, building evermore complex and baroque structures, I felt that I was temporarily inhabiting them again--carrying on their little phantom lives for them by repeating the gestures they had made when they still had bodies." - Author: Paul Auster

Quotes About Athanasius

"Living in filth was regarded by great numbers of holy men, who set an example to the Church and to society, as an evidence of sanctity. St. Jerome and the Breviary of the Roman Church dwell with unction on the fact that St. Hilarion lived his whole life long in utter physical uncleanliness; St. Athanasius glorifies St. Anthony because he had never washed his feet; St. Abrahams most striking evidence of holiness was that for fifty years he washed neither his hands nor his feet; St. Sylvia never washed any part of her body save her fingers; St. Euphraxia belonged to a convent in which the nuns religiously abstained from bathing. St. Mary of Egypt was emninent for filthiness; St. Simon Stylites was in this respect unspeakable - the least that can be said is, that he lived in ordure and stench intolerable to his visitors." - Author: Andrew Dickson White

Quotes About Uniformitarian

"Darwin was a biological evolutionist, because he was first a uniformitarian geologist. Biology is pre-eminent to-day among the natural sciences, because its younger sister, Geology, gave it the means." - Author: Darwin

Quotes About Young Politicians

"We chose younger and younger politicians to lead us because they looked good on television and were sharp. But really we should be looking for wisdom, and choosing people who had acquired it; and such people, in general, looked bad on television - gray, lined, thoughtful." - Author: Alexander McCall Smith

Quotes About Shitheads

"I know." Her smile twitched, wry. "Its taken me a while to figure out that love turns some men into shitheads every so often." Her green eyes were too knowing. "Ben cares. Ben is freaking the hell out that a dead body turned up at you and Claras doorstep. That spells – " "Dont say ‘love." Jess almost smiled. "Its Bens shriveled, mutant, parasitic brand of love. But its still love." - Author: Lauren Gilley
