Quotes About Generality

"The sweetest and most inoffensive path of life leads through the avenues of science and learning; and whoever can either remove any obstructions in this way, or open up any new prospect, ought so far to be esteemed a benefactor to mankind. And though these researches may appear painful and fatiguing. It is with some minds as with some bodies, which being endowed with vigorous and florid health, require severe exercise, and reap a pleasure from what, to the generality of mankind, may seem burdensome and laborious. Obscurity, indeed, is painful to the mind as well as to the eye; but to bring light from obscurity, by whatever labour, must needs be delightful and rejoicing." - Author: David Hume

Quotes About Mean Sisters

"For me, family means the silent treatment. At any given moment, someone is always not speaking to someone else.Really, I said.Were passive-aggressive people, she explained, taking a sip of her coffee. Silence is our weapon of choice. Right now, for instance, Im not speaking to two of my sisters and one brother... At mine [my house], silence is golden. And common.To me, Reggie said, picking up a bottle of Vitamin A and moving it thoughtfully from one hand to the other, family is, like, the wellspring of human energy. The place where all life begins....Harriet considered this as she took a sip of coffee. Huh, she said. I guess when someone else does something worse. Then you need people on your side, so you make up with one person, jsut as youre getting pissed off at another. So its an endless cycle, I said.I guess. She took another sip. Coming together, falling apart. Isnt that what families are all about?" - Author: Sarah Dessen
