Rai Aren Quotes

"I made the choice to be vegan because I will not eat (or wear, or use) anything that could have an emotional response to its death or captivity. I can well imagine what that must feel like for our non-human friends - the fear, the terror, the pain - and I will not cause such suffering to a fellow living being."

Niurka Quotes

"While you are not responsible for the actions of another, you are able to consciously respond to everything in your reality. Your power to respond is your power to create."

Erving Goffman Quotes

"The stigmatized individual is asked to act so as to imply neither that his burden is heavy nor that bearing it has made him different from us; at the same time he must keep himself at that remove from us which assures our painlessly being able to confirm this belief about him. Put differently, he is advised to reciprocate naturally with an acceptance of himself and us, an acceptance of him that we have not quite extended to him in the first place. A PHANTOM ACCEPTANCE is thus allowed to provide the base for a PHANTOM NORMALCY."

Shaemus OSheel Quotes

"They went forth to battle, but they always fell; Their eyes were fixed above the sullen shields; Nobly they fought and bravely, but not well, And sank heart-wounded by a subtle spell. They knew not fear that to the foeman yields, They were not weak, as one who vainly wields A futile weapon; yet the sad scrolls tell How on the hard-fought field they always fell. It was a secret music that they heard, A sad sweet plea for pity and for peace; And that which pierced the heart was but a word, Though the white breast was red-lipped where the sword Pressed a fierce cruel kiss, to put surcease On its hot thirst, but drank a hot increase. Ah, they by some strange troubling doubt were stirred, And died for hearing what no foeman heard."

Mike Foster Quotes

"The quick reflexes, the calmness in the face of a storm, the ability to think in the midst of danger that most people dont have."

Julia Gasperi Quotes

"Try not to think of the clouds over your head, but the sunshine waiting ahead."

Heinrich Zimmer Quotes

"Via Joseph Campbell: My friend Heinrich Zimmer of years ago used to say, "The best things cant be told," because they transcend thought. "The second best are misunderstood," because those are the thoughts that are supposed to refer to that which cant be thought about, and one gets stuck in the thoughts."The third best are what we talk about."

Jay McInerney Quotes

"You never stopped thinking of yourself as a writer biding his time in the Department of Factual Verification. But between the job and the life there wasnt much time left over for emotion recollected in tranquillity."

Monte Irvin Quotes

"You should have seen Willie Wells play shortstop: as good as Ozzie Smith and a better hitter. How I wish people could have seen Ray Dandridge play third base, as good as Brooks Robinson and Craig Nettles and all of those. He was bowlegged; a train might go through there, but not a baseball."

Quotes About Orchids And Life

"For Daisy was young and her artificial world was redolent of orchids and pleasant, cheerful snobbery and orchestras which set the rhythm of the year, summing up the sadness and suggestiveness of life in new tunes. All night the saxophones wailed the hopeless comment o the Beale Street Blues while a hundred pairs of golden and silver slippers shuffled the shiny dust. At the grey tea hour there were always rooms that throbbed incessantly with this low, sweet fever, while fresh faces drifted here and there like rose petals blown by the sad horns around the floor." - Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald

Quotes About Not Being Appreciated

"Reading, like other types of art appreciation, is intensely personal. So what appeals to people is going to depend on who they are. It depends on what is happening in their life at any given moment. On what has happened to them over the course of their personal history and what makes them feel any number of things. The value of art, when it comes to being appreciated by the beholder makes the person consuming it part of that process. Failing to appreciate that integral part of the process is done at your own peril." - Author: Lauren Dane

Quotes About Absolute Love

"Garraty wondered how it would be, to lie in the biggest, dustiest library silence of all, dreaming endless, thoughtless dreams behind your gummed-down eyelids, dressed forever in your Sunday suit. No worries about money, success, fear, joy, pain, sorrow, sex, or love. Absolute zero. No father, mother, girlfriend, lover. The dead are orphans. No company but the silence like a moths wing. An end to the agony of movement, to the long nightmare of going down the road. The body in peace, stillness, and order. The perfect darkness of death.How would that be? Just how would that be?" - Author: Stephen King

Quotes About God Having A Plan For Your Life

"I mean the women who, without any of the prerogatives of youth and beauty, demand continual slavery from their men....They sit back complacently and watch their husbands slave for them; and, without furnishing any of the pleasantries of life for their husbands, they demand the sort of continual attention that a charming fiancée might get....They are harridans and shrews who continually nag and scold until the men are driven idiotic." - Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald

Quotes About Makepeace

"But as it turned out, the two had a great deal in common, for both Bailey and Thackeray (named for the famous novelist William Makepeace Thackeray, author of Vanity Fair) were devoted bibliophiles who believed that "a book a day kept the world at bay," as Thackeray was fond of saying. Bailey was the offspring of a generation of badgers who insisted that "Reader" was the most rewarding vocation to which a virtuous badger might be called and who gauged their weeks anticipated pleasure by the height of their to-be-read pile. (Perhaps you know people like this. I do.)" - Author: Susan Wittig Albert

Quotes About Soothing Life

"How could she have reacted like that? She didnt understand what had come over her. Shed felt his passion and her own. It made her anxious. On edge. For something. Something that made her skin prickle whenever he was in the room with her. Indeed, she found it difficult to concentrate when he wasaround. He was big and strong and smelled incredible. She wanted to curl up against his chest and never leave. Shed never had such strong urges. But then again, shed never met a man who made her feel so protected simply by his solid presence and his confident command of everything around him. His strength was strangely soothing. She couldnt remember a time in her life when shed felt so…content." - Author: Monica McCarty
