Susan Pease Banitt Quotes

"Traumatic events, by definition, overwhelm our ability to cope. When the mind becomes flooded with emotion, a circuit breaker is thrown that allows us to survive the experience fairly intact, that is, without becoming psychotic or frying out one of the brain centers. The cost of this blown circuit is emotion frozen within the body. In other words, we often unconsciously stop feeling our trauma partway into it, like a movie that is still going after the sound has been turned off. We cannot heal until we move fully through that trauma, including all the feelings of the event."

Jeni Acterian Quotes

"Am oroare de toata aceasta comedie sociala pe care o jucam.Aceasta odioasa comedie a disimularilor.Fiecare joaca un personaj si aproape niciodata nu esti in exterior,adica in actiuni si cuvinte,asa cum esti in realitate.Si asta pentru ca in chiar natura omului e o incapacitate de a se exterioriza.Tot ce iese din noi se falsifica ori se degradeaza."

Deanna Raybourn Quotes

"I put my hands on my hips, not caring if I sounded like a Billingsgate fishwife. "Yes, it was a dangerous thing to do, but as it seems to have escaped your attention, I remind you I am above thirty years of age, of sound body and mind, and in control of my own fortune. That means," I said, moving closer still, poking his chest for emphasis, "I am mistress of myself and answer to no one."

Dave Mason Quotes

Quotes About Warnings In Life

"Niels remembered all too well the telex machine that had received updates and warnings from Interpols headquarters in Lyon. The telex machine had run nonstop. The monotonous sound of the mechanical printer reminded them that the world was a fucked-up place. If anyone wanted a brief, concentrated look into the worlds misery, all he had to do was spend 20 minutes in front of the humming machine: serial killers, drug smuggling, women kidnapped for prostitution, cross-border traffic with stolen children, illegal immigration, enriched uranium.... You could get a headache simply from standing in front of the fax machine. It made you want to scream and run away; to jump into the sea and wish that life had never crawled up out of the water, that the dinosaurs still dominated the earth." - Author: A.J. Kazinski

Quotes About Confiding

"There would be no history as we know it, no religion, no metaphysics or aesthetics as we have lived them, without an initial act of trust, of confiding, more fundamental, more axiomatic by far than any "social contract" or covenant with the postulate of the divine. This instauration of trust, this entrance of man into the city of man, is that between word and world." - Author: George Steiner

Quotes About Trews

"The running pants were tolerable, Drustan decided, relieved. The blue trews had clearly been a torture device and would have strangled a mans seed. Mayhap men were fashioned differently in her time.
