Assata Shakur Quotes

"No movement can survive unless it is constantly growing and changing with the times. If it isnt growing, if its stagnant, and without the support of the people, no movement for liberation can exist, no matter how correct its analysis of the situation is. Thats why political work and organizing are so important. Unless you are addressing the issues people are concerned about and contributing positive direction, theyll never support you. The first thing the enemy tries to do is isolate revolutionaries from the masses of people, making us horrible and hideous monsters so that our people will hate us."

SM Boyce Quotes

"What are you?" he [Blood Carden] asked, his red eyes wide."Efficient," Kara answered."

Ellen Ruppel Shell Quotes

"Cheap objects resist involvement. We tend to invest less in their purchase, care, and maintenance, and thats part of what makes them so attractive. Cheap clothing lines—sold at discounters such as Target and H & M—are like IKEA emblems of the "cheap chic" where styles fills in for whatever quality goes lacking. There is nothing sinister in this, no deliberate planned obsolescence. These objects are not designed to fall apart, nor are they crafted not to fall apart. In many cases we know this and accept it, and have entered into a sort of compact. Perhaps we dont even want the object to last forever. Such voluntary obsolescence makes craftsmanship beside the point. We have grown to expect and even relish the easy birth and early death of objects."

Christopher Hudspeth Quotes

"To give up on a person you care for who is trying and failing is a bad thing, but to cut ties with an individual who is giving zero effort, yet doing a number on your heart makes sense."

James L Buckley Quotes

"They may then be willing to cast principled votes based on an educated understanding of the public interest in the face of polls suggesting that the public itself may have quite a different understanding of where its interest lies."

Jack Burton Quotes

"Its all in the reflexes."

Portia Nelson Quotes

"Chapter One of My Life. I walk down the street. Theres a deep hole in the sidewalk. I fall in. I am lost. I am helpless. It isnt my fault. It still takes forever to find a way out.Chapter Two.

And it still takes a long time to get out.Chapter Three. I walk down the same street. Theres a deep hole in the sidewalk. I see it there. I still fall in. Its a habit! My eyes are open. I know where I am. It is my fault. I get out immediately.Chapter Four. I walk down the same street. Theres a deep hole in the sidewalk. I walk around it.Chapter Five. I walk down a different street."

Cesar Pelli Quotes

"I realize that having a style would be very beneficial for my practice from a marketing standpoint, but I cant do it. I believe my responsibilities as an architect are to design the most appropriate building for the place. Each place has a distinct culture and function, which for me requires an appropriate answer."

Edmond Halley Quotes

"Scarce any problem will appear more hard and difficult, than that of determining the distance of the Sun from the Earth very near the truth: but even this... will without much labour be effected."

William S Paley Quotes

"White lies always introduce others of a darker complexion."

"At the Theatre: To the Lady Behind MeDear Madam, you have seen this play;I never saw it till today.You know the details of the plot,But, let me tell you, I do not.The author seeks to keep from meThe murderers identity,And you are not a friend of hisIf you keep shouting who it is.The actors in their funny wayHave several funny things to say,But they do not amuse me moreIf you have said them just before;The merit of the drama lies,I understand, in some surprise;But the surprise must now be smallSince you have just foretold it all.The lady you have brought with youIs, I infer, a half-wit too,But I can understand the pieceWithout assistance from your niece.In short, foul woman, it would suitMe just as well if you were mute;In fact, to make my meaning plain,I trust you will not speak again.And—may I add one human touch?—Dont breathe upon my neck so much." - Author: A.P.

Quotes About Restraining Love

"The universe deepened at that moment, the music of the spheres grew from a mere chorus to a symphony as triumphant as Beethovens Ninth, and I knew that I would always be able to hear it when I wished or needed to, always be able to Use it to take the step I needed to see the one I loved, or, failing that, step to the place where I had been with the one I loved, or, failing that, find a place to love for its own beauty and richness.The energy of quasars and exploding stellar nuclei filled me then. I was borne up on waves of energy more lovely and more lyrical even than the Ouster angels wings seen sliding along corridors of sunlight. The shell of deadly energy that was my prison and execution cell seemed laughable now, Schrödingers original joke, a childs jump rope laid around me on the ground as restraining walls.I stepped out of the Schrödinger cat box and out of Armaghast System." - Author: Dan Simmons

Quotes About Contribute

"When we are shown scenes of starving children in Africa, with a call for us to do something to help them, the underlying ideological message is something like: "Dont think, dont politicize, forget about the true causes of their poverty, just act, contribute money, so that you will not have to think!" - Author: Slavoj Žižek

Quotes About Warwick

"They sit beside each other on one of the sofas, Warwick leaning forward with his elbows on his knees, Joanne resting back with her arms behind her head. Never known as advocates of establishmentarianism, they have been applauded, ridiculed, and misunderstood by the media, and, in particular, criticized for their avarice. They have agreed to do this interview without "cabbage" (payment), but generally charge ten to twenty thousand dollars for the privilege. Even so, why should they be castigated for exploiting a medium that has exploited them? They see the situation simply enough: quid pro quo, and hold the mustard." - Author: Antonella Gambotto Burke

Quotes About Usps

"In a sexual double standard as to who receives consumer protection, it seems that if what you do is done to women in the name of beauty, you may do what you like. It is illegal to claim that something grows hair, or makes you taller, or restores virility, if it does not. It is difficult to imagine that the baldness remedy Minoxidil would be on the market if it had killed nine French and at least eleven American men. In contrast, the long-term effects of Retin-A are still unknown--Dr. Stuart Yusps of the National Cancer Institute refers to its prescription as "a human experiment"--and the Food and Drug Administration has not approved it yet dermatologists are prescribing it to women at a revenue of over $150 million a year." - Author: Naomi Wolf
