Besa Kosova Quotes

"A dream without a fight is a nightmare."

Susan Hubbard Quotes

"He said that academia reminded him of a badly run circus. The faculty members were like underfed animals -- weary of their cages, which were never large enough to begin with -- and they responded sluggishly to the whip. The trapeze artists fell with monotonous regularity into poorly strung nets. The clowns looked hungry. The tent leaked. The crowd was inattentive, shouting incoherently at inappropriate moments. And when the show was over, no one cheered."

Ali MacGraw Quotes

Julie Highmore Quotes

"Once more, he was immersing himself in books, reaching the end of long articles, even going back over paragraphs to make sure hed grasped things. How much more satisfying it was than all that skimming, all that jumping around. At present, he was working his way, deliciously, through a book on Mendel, the father of genetics. A man who might not have spend seven years watching peas, if hed had the internet."

VL Dreyer Quotes

Quotes About Loose Morals

"Like anybody can tell you, I am not a very nice man. I dont know the word. I have always admired the villain, the outlaw, the son of a bitch. I dont like the clean-shaven boy with the necktie and the good job. I like desperate men, men with broken teeth and broken minds and broken ways. They interest me. They are full of surprises and explosions. I also like vile women, drunk cursing bitches with loose stockings and sloppy mascara faces. Im more interested in perverts than saints. I can relax with bums because I am a bum. I dont like laws, morals, religions, rules. I dont like to be shaped by society." - Author: Charles Bukowski

Quotes About Tea Party

"I call it small government, grass-roots activism: The Tea Party activists are a part of it, FreedomWorks is part of it. FreedomWorks is the longest-standing, most active organization within this movement." - Author: Dick Armey

Quotes About Coming Close To Death

"As indicated by the increase in maternal mortality in 2010, right now its more dangerous to give birth in California than in Kuwait or Bosnia. Amnesty International reports that women in [the United States] have a higher risk of dying due to pregnancy complications than women in forty-nine other countries (black women are almost four times as likely to die as white women). The United States spends more than any other country on maternal health care, yet our risk of dying or coming close to death during pregnancy or in childbirth remains unreasonably high." - Author: Jessica Valenti

Quotes About Function And Relation

"I see that the wardrobe looks penetrable because it has a door. But when I open it, I see that penetration has been put off: since inside is also a wooden surface, like a closed door. Function of the wardrobe: to keep drag and disguises hidden. Nature: that of the inviolability of things. Relation to people: we look at ourselves in the mirror on the inside of the door, we always look at ourselves in an inconvenient light because the wardrobe is never in the right place: awkward, it stands wherever it fits, always huge, hunchbacked, shy and clumsy, unaware how to be more discreet, for it has too much presence. A wardrobe is enormous, intrusive, sad, kind." - Author: Clarice Lispector

Quotes About Love To Make Her Cry

Quotes About Filthy Language

"The fall of humanity was the fall from the actual to the symbolic. Language abstracts us from the real world; keeping us from direct, intuitive perception. Words, like the ego, are merely guides. Dont mistake them for the real thing. Pull aside the filthy curtains of the social. Language makes an enigma of simple existence; it obscures the true nature of reality and of your self." - Author: Tony Vigorito

Quotes About The Gospel Of Matthew

"The most authoritative accounts of a historical Jesus come from the four canonical Gospels of the Bible. Note that these Gospels did not come into the Bible as original and authoritative from the authors themselves, but rather from the influence of early church fathers, especially the most influential of them all: Irenaeus of Lyon who lived in the middle of the second century. Many heretical gospels existed by that time, but Irenaeus considered only some of them for mystical reasons. He claimed only four in number; according to Romer, like the four zones of the world, the four winds, the four divisions of mans estate, and the four forms of the first living creatures-- the lion of Mark, the calf of Luke, the man of Matthew, the eagle of John." - Author: Frank Butcher

Quotes About So Called Family

"Thats my Middle West-not the wheat or the prairies or the lost Swede towns, but the thrilling returning trains of my youth, and the street lamps and sleigh bells in the frosty dark and the shadows of holly wreaths thrown by lighted windows on the snow. I am part of that, a little solemn with the feel of those long winters, a little complacent from growing up in the Carraway house in a city where dwellings are still called through decades by a familys name." - Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald

Quotes About Not Being Perfect Person

"When describing me, Tracy often refers to a well-known concept of physics: inertia. As Newton avers in his first law: An object that is not moving will not move until a force acts upon it. An object that is moving will not change its velocity until a net force acts upon it. In other words, depending on whats happening in my life at any given moment, I can either be the laziest human being on the planet, or the busiest. Im perfectly content to do absolutely nothing until Im catalyzed by some person or project, and then I go nonstop until some countervailing force acts upon me, and I revert back to static mode." - Author: Michael J. Fox

Quotes About Users And Liars

"Evidence indicates that cats were first tamed in Egypt. The Egyptians stored grain, which attracted rodents, which attracted cats. (No evidence that such a thing happened with the Mayans, though a number of wild cats are native to the area.) I dont think this is accurate. It is certainly not the whole story. Cats didnt start as mousers. Weasels and snakes and dogs are more efficient as rodent-control agents. I postulate that cats started as psychic companions, as Familiars, and have never deviated from this function." - Author: William S. Burroughs
