Judith Herman Quotes

"It is very tempting to take the side of the perpetrator. All the perpetrator asks is that the bystander do nothing. He appeals to the universal desire to see, hear, and speak no evil. The victim, on the contrary, asks the bystander to share the burden of pain. The victim demands action, engagement, and remembering."

Sue Miller Quotes

"You might have thought Id worry about him, about causing him pain or at least embarrassment. I simply didnt. I felt the kind of desperation, I think, that cancels the possibility of empathy. That makes you unkind. When I described myself as I was at that time to Daniel, I often said to him, "You wouldnt have liked me then."

Roger Garaudy Quotes

"I do not know much about this man [Jesus], but I do know that his whole life conveys one message: anyone at any moment can start a new future."

Walter Salles Quotes

"The films that Ive done before were original stories most of the time, I did two adaptations before this, but they were mostly original stories where I had complete freedom to evolve in the direction I wanted."

Quotes About Pet Deaths

"For me the world has always been more of a puppet show. But when one looks behind the curtain and traces the strings upward he finds they terminate in the hands of yet other puppets, themselves with their own strings which trace upward in turn, and so on. In my own life I saw these strings whose origins were endless enact the deaths of great men in violence and madness. Enact the ruin of a nation." - Author: Cormac McCarthy

Quotes About Delivering Bad News

"Just head over to the risers, Lady America," she said. "You may sit anywhere you like. So you know, most of the girls have already claimed the front row."

Quotes About Printing Press

"If history teaches us anything, its that governments are always right, and they always do whats in the best interest of the people, even at the expense of their own political agenda. In every situation, the answer is always more government and more regulation. If there are six billion people in the world, then all six billion should work for the government. More, if we could. And there should be at least twice as many laws as there are people in the world. And with more laws means more lawyers, so its a double benefit. Its a win-win for both the government and the citizens, which of course there wont be because in this utopian dream there are no citizens, there is only the government. The best part is the taxes will be super high, but theyre paid in full by the printing presses of the Geodesic Dome Society. Full benefits, zero unemployment, no chance of being fired, and a world so efficient it would make Rube Goldberg look like Fred Taylor or Henry Ford." - Author: Jarod Kintz
