Stage Beauty Quotes

"Your old tutor did you a great disservice, Mr. Kynaston. He taught you how to speak, and swoon, and toss your head but he never taught you how to suffer like a woman, or love like a woman. He trapped a man in a womans form and left you there to die! I always hated you as Desdemona. You never fought! You just died, beautifully. No woman would die like that, no matter how much she loved him. A woman would fight!"

Quotes About Monogamous

"Nonmonogamous folks are constantly engaged in their relationships: they negotiate and establish boundaries, respect them, test them, and, yes, even violate them. But the limits are not assumed or set by society; they are consciously chosen." - Author: Tristan Taormino

Quotes About Spots And Stripes

"Its easy to slide into believing youre the hypnotist here, the mirage master, the smart cookie who knows whats real and how all the tricks are done. The fact is youre still just another slack-jawed mark in the audience. No matter how good you are, this world is always going to be better at this game. Its more cunning than you are, its faster and its a whole lot more ruthless. All you can do is try to keep up, know your weak spots and never stop expecting the sucker punch." - Author: Tana French

Quotes About Secularity

"Secularity is a way of being dependent on the responses of our milieu. The secular or false self is the self which is fabricated, as Thomas Merton says, by social compulsions. Compulsive is indeed the best adjective for the false self. It points to the need for ongoing and increasing affirmation. Who am I? I am the one who is liked, praised, admired, disliked, hated or despised. Whether I am a pianist, a businessman or a minister, what matters is how I am perceived by my world. If being busy is a good thing, then I must be busy. If having money is a sign of real freedom, then I must claim my money. If knowing many people proves my importance, I will have to make the necessary contacts. The compulsion manifests itself in the lurking fear of failure and the steady urge to prevent this by gathering more of the same - more work, more money, more friends." - Author: Henri J.M. Nouwen

"Maybe youre getting into the rhythm of sailing life," says James. He looks out at the waves that are rolling in to lap against the dock.

Quotes About Anarchist Freedom

"Freedom, or individual liberty, was a basic premise of the Spanish anarchist tradition. "Individual sovereignty" is a prime tenet of most anarchist writing; the free development of one s individual potential is one of the basic "rights" to which all humans are born. Yet Spanish anarchists were firmly rooted in the communalist-anarchist tradition. For them, freedom was fundamentally a social product: the fullest expression of individuality and of creativity can be achieved only in and through community. As Carmen Conde (a teacher who was also active in Mujeres Libres) wrote, describing the relationship of individuality and community: "I and my truth; I and my faith ... And I for you, but without ever ceasing to be me, so that you can always be you. Because I don t exist without your existence, but my existence is also indispensable to yours." - Author: Martha A. Ackelsberg

Quotes About Nots

"Working against my faith, there was in me a deeply ingrained pessimism… I had very definitely formed the opinion that the universe was, in the main, a rather regrettable institution…I am now inclined to think that the seeds of pessimism were sown before my mothers death. Ridiculous as it may sound, I believe that clumsiness of my hands was at the root of the matter... What they really bred in me was a deep (and, of course, inarticulate) sense of resistance or opposition on the part of inanimate things... Whatever you wanted to remain straight, would bend; whatever you tried to bend would fly back to the straight; all knots which you wished to be firm would come untied; all knots you wanted to untie would remain firm." - Author: C.S. Lewis

Quotes About Pencil Sketching

"Always the seer is a sayer. Somehow his dream is told; somehow he publishes it with solemn joy: sometimes with pencil on canvas, sometimes with chisel on stone, sometimes in towers and aisles of granite, his souls worship is builded; sometimes in anthems of indefinite music, but clearest and most permanent, in words." - Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
