"As Atwood concludes after a random and informal sampling, men and women differ markedly in the scope of their threatenability: Why do men feel threatened by woman? I asked a male friend of mine....[M]en are bigger, most of the time...and they have on the average a lot more money and power. Theyre afraid women will laugh at them, he said. Undercut their world view. Then I asked some women students in a quickie poetry seminar I was giving, Why do women feel threatened by men? Theyre afraid of being killed, they said."

Quotes About Someday

"...I would like to beg you dear Sir, as well as I can, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Dont search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer."Letter to a Young Poet, 1903" - Author: Rilke, Rainer Maria

Quotes About Elephant Abuse

"Therea a phrase, "the elephant in the living room", which purports to describe what its like to live with a drug addict, an alcoholic, an abuser. People outside such relationships will sometimes ask, "How could you let such a business go on for so many years? Didnt you see the elephant in the living room?" And its so hard for anyone living in a more normal situation to understand the answer that comes closest to the truth; "Im sorry, but it was there when I moved in. I didnt know it was an elephant; I thought it was part of the furniture." There comes an aha-moment for some folks - the lucky ones - when they suddenly recognize the difference." - Author: Stephen King

She wasnt usually at a loss for words, but she had completely lost her ability to think straight, so she decided to keep her mouth shut." - Author: Joy Casey
