"This time well be fighting for the nation. The company commander says that its better to be the ghost of a fallen soldier than a nationless slave. For the sake of our fellow countrymen, our families and our children, we have to resist to the very end... ("Vague Expectations")"

Richard E Leakey Quotes

"Our self-awareness impresses itself on us so cogently, as individuals and as a species, that we cannot imagine ourselves out of existence, even though for hundreds of millions of years humans played no part in the flow of life on the planet. When Teilhard de Chardin wrote, "The phenomenon of Man was essentially foreordained from the beginning," he was speaking from the depth of individual experience, which we all share, as much as from religious philosophy. Our inability to imagine a world without Homo sapiens has a profound impact on our view of ourselves; it becomes seductively easy to imagine that our evolution was inevitable. And inevitability gives meaning to life, because there is a deep security in believing that the way things are is the way they were meant to be."

Jeri Smith Ready Quotes

"This time of year," she said, "peoples consciences gnaw at them. They give away truckloads of canned goods and quote Dickens and wring their hands over the ‘less fortunate." We boarded the Metro and took seats perpendicular to each other. "But God forbid anyone should address why theyre poor in the first place, or try to change the structures that keep them poor. Then the ‘less fortunate turn into ‘welfare queens and ‘derelicts. But if I were a lobbyist whoring on behalf of some transnational corporation, Id never hear the word ‘derelict.""So when it comes to taking care of poor people," I said, "if Mother Teresa is the Hallmark card, then youre the electric bill."

Quotes About Gasoline Prices

"America experienced its first oil shock. Within days of the cutoff, oil prices rose from $2.90 to $11.65 a barrel; gasoline prices soared from 20 cents to $1.20 a gallon, an all-time high. Across America, fuel shortages forced factories to close early and airlines to cancel flights. Filling stations posted signs: Sorry, No Gas Today. If a station did have gasoline, motorists lined up before sunrise to buy a few gallons; owners limited the amount sold to each customer. Motorists grew impatient. Fistfights broke out, and occasionally, gunfire. President Nixon called for America to end its dependence on foreign oil. Let us set as our national goal. . . that by the end of this decade we will have developed the potential to meet our own energy needs without depending on any foreign energy source, he said. We have still not met this goal." - Author: Albert Marrin

Quotes About Dark Liquor

"Calo had dark liquor-colored skin and hair like an inky slice of night; the tautness of the flesh around his dark eyes was broken only by a fine network of laugh-lines (though anyone who knew the Sanza twins would more readily describe them as smirk-lines). An improbably sharp and hooked nose preceded his good looks like a dagger held at guard position." - Author: Scott Lynch

Quotes About Spanglish

"Until I am free to write bilingually and to switch codes without having always to translate, while I still have to speak English or Spanish when I would rather speak Spanglish, and as long as I have to accommodate the English speakers rather than having them accommodate me, my tongue will be illegitimate. I will no longer be made to feel ashamed of existing. I will have my voice: Indian, Spanish, white. I will have my serpents tongue - my womans voice, my sexual voice, my poets voice. I will overcome the tradition of silence." - Author: Gloria E. Anzaldúa
