[In Comparison, Young Unmarried Women In America Were Fortunate: They Had A Certain Measure Of Sexual Freedom. Eighteenth-century Parents Allowed Their Daughters To Spend Tie With Suitors Unsupervised, And Courting Couples Openly Engaged In "bundling," The Practice Of Sleeping Together Without Undressing, In The Girls' Homes. (Theoretically, That Is, They Were Sleeping Together Without Undressing: In Fact, Premarital Pregnancy Boomed During The Period Of 1750 To 1780, When Bundling Was Nearly Universal.) But By The Turn Of The Century, In A Complete Reversal Of Previous Beliefs About Women's Sexuality, The Idea Took Hold That Only Men Were Carnal Creatures; Women Were Thought To Be Passionless And Therefore Morally Superior.]

Martin Manley Quotes

"I never bought into the whole "second amendment" argument as it relates to the 21st century. Originally, it was put into place for the simple reason that our forefathers were fighting or had just fought off a government that threatened them with weapons. If those in the revolution had no weapons, there would be no United States of America, but rather New England of the New World. So, I understood why they thought it was so important."

Misty Edwards Quotes

"I want to be a woman who lives totally abandoned to the first commandment: to love my Lord, my God, with all my heart. I dont want the reputation that I love God, I dont want to write songs about loving God, I dont want to talk about loving God. I want to actually love God. When I close my eyes, I want my heart to move. When I close my eyes and I look at Him, I want to feel alive on the inside. I want to look at Him with a fire in my heart and its real."

John Howe Quotes

"Drawing must seek interest, not admiration. Because admiration wears quickly."

Quotes About Prayers For The Sick

"Remember him, April. Even when you cant picture his face anymore, you owe each other prayers. And Im not talking about sappy, sentimental stuff. Or fantasy, either.

Quotes About Thought Police In 1984

"There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment. How often, or on what system, the Thought Police plugged in on any individual wire was guesswork.

Quotes About Self Limitation

"There is a deeper, more profound reason for this craving for acceptance and glory. Put simply, its because all writers are fat and/or ugly. And generally socially inept. Me being the notable exception, of course. Writers want to be special, because theyre so not. Theyre losers, overgrown kids whove never escaped from being misfits and who have run away into their own imaginations in an attempt to find self-esteem. Why do you think they all star in their own books? Self included." - Author: Chancery Stone
