[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.]

Charles Petzold Quotes

"Code is not like other how-computers-work books. It doesnt have big color illustrations of disk drives with arrows showing how the data sweeps into the computer. Code has no drawings of trains carrying a cargo of zeros and ones. Metaphors and similes are wonderful literary devices but they do nothing but obscure the beauty of technology."

Callum Keith Rennie Quotes

"Im so excited about Shattered; its something Ive really enjoyed working in, and its very different from anything Ive done before. Ive always been a character actor and done a lot of support work.

Giles Gilbert Scott Quotes

"The artistic taste of the Catholic priests is appalling and I am most anxious to have a Catholic church in which everything is genuine and good, and not tawdry and ostentatious."

Jan Potocki Quotes

"It is not science which leads to unbelief but rather ignorance. The ignorant man thinks he understands something provided that he sees it every day. The natural philosopher walks amid enigmas, always striving to understand and always half-understanding. He learns to believe what he does not understand, and that is a step on the road to faith."

Quotes About Reaching Climax

"The term - Fairy-Tales is so ironical in itself, when I sometimes sit to write love stories with a happy ending, it usually drags me into a dilemma whether, I should even begin with a love story at first place or not? Because honestly, I havent seen many of them reaching climax, most of them just die out in the mid. Then comes the concept of fairy tales or what we say fiction, where nothing is impossible!But over time, if Ive realized something, it is that theres no such term called fiction when it comes to reality! Its harsh, in-your-face-sarcastic, ironical and highly irrational. You cant expect whats coming up next, and how its going to blow you. In the real life, the entire meaning of fiction ceases to exist. Conclusively, we writers, deal with harsh reality and write lively fictions, this job in itself is so ironical but, thats life..." - Author: Mehek Bassi

Quotes About Shutting Up

"Were meant to stay connected to our hearts, you see. Feeling our feelings, present in the moments were given. But we dont do that. And thats when we get in trouble. ...We mature and take responsibility for ourselves and others, and thats a good thing. But were never meant to lose that alive quality, to get cut off from our true hearts. Growing up isnt the same thing as shutting down. ...We can fight it. We have to fight it. Because when our hearts shut down, we become mere shells of who we once were. We dont laugh—not honestly, not from the heart. We dont dream. We dont feel our feelings or use our gifts. We end up trying to just survive instead of live. Its like weve handed our hearts over to the enemy of our souls and said, Here you can have it. Im giving up." - Author: Denise Hildreth Jones
