Quotes About Hey You

"Surely these women wont lose any more of their beauty and charm by putting a ballot in a ballot box once a year than they are likely to lose standing in foundries or laundries all year round. There is no harder contest than the contest for bread, let me tell you that." - Author: Rose Schneiderman

Quotes About Human Species

"When I look closely at dairy, I see the hurtful exploitation of specifically female bodies so that some people can enjoy sensual pleasures of consumption while others enjoy the psychological pleasure of collecting profits from the exertions of somebody elses body. Cows are forcibly impregnated, dispossessed of their children, and then painfully robbed of the milk produced by their bodies for those children. No wonder I didnt want to see my complicity! Most women dont consciously perceive the everyday violence against girls and women that permeates and structures our society. How much harder it is, then, to see the gendered violence against nonhuman animals behind the everyday items on the grocery store shelf. When we, as women, partake of that violence, we participate in sexism even as we enjoy the illusory benefits of speciesism. No wonder a glimpse of the sexist violence behind my breakfast cereal left me dizzy." - Author: Pattrice Jones

Quotes About Hypocritical Behavior

"A pastor struggled for years with sexual addiction, eventually becoming so despondent that hospitalized himself. He joined an inpatient group and was mostly silent as others shared.When he decided not to come one day, the leader found he had fallen back into his addiction the previous night. Against every fiber of his instinct, he came back to the group. He shared how much he despised himself and his hypocritical behavior. When he saw that others wept for him, the weight of the secret that piled on the shame was broken. As Ortberg puts it, the man was able to taste the grace he taught about." - Author: John Ortberg Jr.

Quotes About Opposites In Relationships

"[There are] code words used today to measure the authenticity of relationships or other persons. We speak of whether we can personally relate to events or other persons, and whether in the relationship itself people are open to one another. The first is a cover word for measuring the other in terms of a mirror of self-concern, and the second is a cover for measuring social interaction in terms of the market exchange of confession." - Author: Richard Sennett

Quotes About Being Enticed

"They [human lives] are composed like music. Guided by his sense of beauty, an individual transforms a fortuitous occurrence (Beethovens music, death under a train) into a motif, which then assumes a permanent place in the composition of the individuals life. Anna could have chosen another way to take her life. But the motif of death and the railway station, unforgettably bound to the birth of love, enticed her in her hour of despair with its dark beauty. Without realizing it, the individual composes his life according to the laws of beauty even in times of greatest distress.It is wrong, then, to chide the novel for being fascinated by mysterious coincidences (like the meeting of Anna, Vronsky, the railway station, and death or the meeting of Beethoven, Tomas, Tereza, and the cognac), but it is right to chide man for being blind to such coincidences in his daily life. For he thereby deprives his life a dimension of beauty." - Author: Milan Kundera

Quotes About The Savoy Hotel

"He went into those little gardens beneath the over-hanging, brightly-lit masses of the Savoy Hotel and the Hotel Cecil. He sat down on a seat and became aware of the talk of the two people next to him. It was the talk of a young couple evidently on the eve of marriage. The man was congratulating himself on having regular employment at last; they like me, he said, and I like the job. If I work up—inr dozen years or so I ought to be gettin somethin pretty comfortable. Thats the plain sense of it, Hetty. There aint no reason whatsoever why we shouldnt get along very decently—very decently indeed." - Author: H.G. Wells

Quotes About How Much You Love Your Daughter

"My daughter squealed again and both Bubba and I winced. Its not an attractive sound, that. Its high-pitched and it enters your ear canals like hot glass. No matter how much I love my daughter, I will never love her squealing. Or maybe I will. Maybe I do. Driving down 93, I realized once and for all, that I love the things that chafe. The things that fill me with stress so total I cant remember when a block of it didnt rest on top of my heart. I love what, if broken, cant be repaired. What, if lost cant be replaced. I love my burdens." - Author: Dennis Lehane

Quotes About Death Bed
