[If I Had Been Armed With A Feminist Understanding That No Girl Deserves To Be Called A Slut, Perhaps I Would Have Fought Back By Reporting The Harassment To My School's Headmistress Or Another School Authority, Or At Least I Might Have Had The Strength To Tell Of The Name-callers On My Own. But At The Time, All I Knew Was That If I Avoided Eye Contact, It Was A Hell Of A Lot Easier To Get Through My Days.]

Helen Steiner Rice Quotes

"God, teach me to be patient, teach me to go slow,Teach me how to wait on You when my way I do not know.Teach me sweet forbearance when things do not go rightSo I remain unruffled when others grow uptight.Teach me how to quiet my racing, rising heartSo I might hear the answer You are trying to impart.Teach me to let go, dear God, and pray undisturbed untilMy heart is filled with inner peace and I learn to know your will."

"This could be your big ticket," he said. "You know what happens to you at art school?"I shook my head."All that good natural technique you have? All that detail? Theyll beat it right out of you. Theyll be so threatened by it, theyll make you start throwing paint at the canvas like a monkey. By the time you graduate, the only thing youll be able to do is teach art to high school kids."Okay, I thought. Im glad hes excited for me."On the plus side, youll probably get laid a lot."I gave him a nod and a quick thumbs-up. He patted me on the shoulder and then left me alone."

Quotes About Actually Caring

"What does economic growth actually mean? It means more consumption – and consumption of a specific kind: more consumption of goods and services that are exchanged for money. That means that if people stop caring for their own children and instead pay for childcare, the economy grows. The same if people stop cooking for themselves and purchase restaurant takeaways instead.Economists say this is a good thing. After all, you wouldnt pay for childcare or takeaway food if it werent of benefit to you, right? So, the more things people are paying for, the more benefits are being had. Besides, it is more efficient for one daycare centre to handle 30 children than for each family to do it themselves. Thats why we are all so much richer, happier and less busy than we were a generation ago. Right?" - Author: Charles Eisenstein

Quotes About Marginalisation

"Firstly, economic globalisation has brought prosperity and development to many countries, but also financial crises to Asia, Latin America and Russia, and increasing poverty and marginalisation." - Author: Anna Lindh

Quotes About Sexual Love

"We watched each other evolve into parents, with all the fear, rage and confusion evolution can involve. Our eight-year-old is the incarnation of our union; we are forever fused by her blood. My old take on romance seemed vaguely ludicrous, as affected as a pair of spats. I no longer saw the point in getting back to normal, that pantomime of pretending nothing had changed; I wanted to evolve from sexual posturing into a deeper consciousness, that of love." - Author: Antonella Gambotto Burke

Quotes About Outlook

"Often people ask, "How can you say youre blessed to have a son with Down syndrome?" My outlook on life has forever changed. I see my own challenges differently. Hes always showing me that life is so much bigger than self." - Author: Yvonne Pierre

Quotes About Czas

"Tak jak przed telewizorem umiera wiara w drugiego człowieka, tak w podróży ta wiara powraca. Podróżowanie zwraca nam życie. Zabiera nas do istoty rzeczy, zabiera nas w przeszłość, do czasów, gdy to nie współzawodnictwo rządziło światem, ale współpraca. Jedność i zaufanie. Bez tego nie można było przeżyć zimy, powodzi, zarazy. Podróżowanie zabiera nas w przeszłość, gdy człowiek żył podług prostych zasad i był, o dziwo, bliżej natury i świata." - Author: Robb Maciąg

Quotes About Noisy

"Meditation is a mysterious method of self-restoration.It involves "shutting" out the outside world, and by that means sensing the universal "presence" which is, incidentally, absolute perfect peace.It is basically an existential "time-out"—a way to "come up for a breath of air" out of the noisy clutter of the world.But dont be afraid, there is nothing arcane or supernatural or creepy about the notion of taking a time-out. Ball players do it. Kids do it, when prompted by their parents. Heck, even your computer does it (and sometimes not when you want it to).So, why not you?A meditation can be as simple as taking a series of easy breaths, and slowly, gently counting to ten in your mind." - Author: Vera Nazarian

Quotes About Chef Knives

"Hey, lovebirds, do I have your order right or are you too busy necking to notice?" the chef asked, pointing at us with one of his cooking knives.I snapped my head up and could feel my cheeks flush, but as usual John was as cool as a cucumber. He smiled and looked at the chef. "We werent necking...yet. But Im sure we will be as soon as youre done making our steaks."The hipster couple shook their heads, but I could hear Martha awwing at us again. Luckily the chef had a sense of humor, but it still embarrassed the heck out of me."Okay, red meat and then necking.Gotcha. You need some wine? Or music to set the mood?" he asked, playing an invisible violin on his shoulder." - Author: Magan Vernon

Quotes About What If Things Were Different

"Resist nothing. Like the Tibetan monk who once told me that he found peace by saying yes to all that happened. I met him again years later and reminded him of what hed said. He laughed. "Perhaps," he said. "It does fit with my life philosophy." He had a lightness to him that is rare. His laugh, genuine. I almost expected him to levitate. If you think about it, how much time do we spend in our heads wishing things were another way, beating ourselves up, beating others up, crafting a different past, wishing for a different future? All of that is resistance. All of that is pain. Peace is letting it be. Letting life flow, letting emotions flow through you. If you dont fight them, they pass through quickly and you feel better." - Author: Kamal Ravikant
