[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.]

Rudolf Rocker Quotes

"The peoples owe all political rights and privileges which we enjoy today in greater or lesser measure, not to the good will of their governments, but to their own strength. One need only study the history of the past three hundred years to understand by what relentless struggles every right has had to be wrested inch by inch from the despots."

Fredrick Douglass Quotes

"Everybody has asked the question. . ."What shall we do with the Negro?" I have had but one answer from the beginning. Do nothing with us! Your doing with us has already played the mischief with us. Do nothing with us! If the apples will not remain on the tree of their own strength, if they are wormeaten at the core, if they are early ripe and disposed to fall, let them fall! I am not for tying or fastening them on the tree in any way, except by natures plan, and if they will not stay there, let them fall. And if the Negro cannot stand on his own legs, let him fall also. All I ask is, give him a chance to stand on his own legs! Let him alone!"

Quotes About Minimalist Art

"Ambos acordaban que el regreso de la sensibilidad pura era paralelo a la herejía por la obsesión estética. Las cosas verdaderamente tristes habían llegado a un punto de exacerbación tal que la historia del patito feo era la versión minimalista(el mito fundacional) que organizaba la tragedia de los muchos millones que tenían ojos, y se encontraban por tanto "observados y revelados como feos acusadoramente por si mismos y el resto". Los cancioneros modernos elevaban delicados himnos a la certidumbre de la pateticidad intrínseca, a la autoconciencia recobrada so forma de espejos:dime, ¿me dejarías llorar sobre tu hombro?he oído decir que probarias lo que fuera al menos dos vecescierra los ojos, y piensa en alquien que te atraiga físicamentey déjame besarte, oh déjame besartey entonces abre tus ojos, y veras a alguien al quedesprecias físicamentepero mi corazón está abiertomi corazon está entregado a ti[bis]" - Author: Pola Oloixarac

Quotes About Salsa Food

"A farmer friend of mine told me recently about a busload of middle school children who came to his farm for a tour. The first two boys off the bus asked, "Where is the salsa tree?" They thought they could go pick salsa, like apples and peaches. Oh my. What do they put on SAT tests to measure this? Does anybody care? How little can a person know about food and still make educated decisions about it? Is this knowledge going to change before they enter the voting booth? Now thats a scary thought." - Author: Joel Salatin

Quotes About Innovative Thinking

"I intuitively did well when I was leading the whole team, but once we got past 25 people, you cant do that. And so I made a series of classic mistakes in hiring. And not building a good middle management structure. And not recruiting a board that could help me build the company. Big mistakes in picking a successor, big mistakes in having an undisciplined product strategy—I was much more interested in having distinctive, innovative products and thinking about what would make sense for a product line for our business overall—and big mistakes in expanding too fast and not having discipline about what we were doing. So I give myself a C or C– on all that stuff." - Author: Jessica Livingston

Quotes About Catchy Music

"Modern man is full of platitudes about living life to its fullest, with catchy keychain phrases and little plaques for kitchen walls. But if youve never retreated to the solitude of a dark room and listened to Beethovens Ninth from start to finish, you know nothing. For music is a transcendental exploration of human emotion and experience, the very fabric of life in its purest form. And the Ninth our greatest musical achievement." - Author: Tiffany Madison

Quotes About Deists

"The phrase Founding Fathers is a proper noun. It refers to a specific group: the delegates to the Constitutional Convention. There were other important players not in attendance, but these fifty-five made up the core. Among the delegates were twenty-eight Episcopalians, eight Presbyterians, seven Congregationalists, two Lutherans, two Dutch Reformed, two Methodists, two Roman Catholics, one unknown, and only three deists- Williamson, Wilson, and Franklin. This took place at a time when church membership usually entailed "sworn adherence to strict doctrinal creeds." This tally proves that 51 of 55 -a full 93 percent- of the members of the Constitutional Convention, the most influential group of men shaping the political underpinnings of our nation were Christians, not deists." - Author: Greg Koukl
