John Lyman Quotes

"What were fighting ... what mankind has always been fighting ... is evil. Evil will always use the most expedient route to achieve its goal of destroying humanity. It doesnt matter what the battle is about. From the recent bloodletting over religious ideology to the hatred of another man just because of the color of his skin, evil will use whatever triggers the urge within us to hate."

Vladimir Nabokov Quotes

"The fame of his likes circulates briskly but soon grows heavy and stale; and as for history it will limit his life story to the dash between two dates."

Anna Politkovskaya Quotes

"We are hurtling back into a Soviet abyss, into an information vacuum that spells death from our own ignorance. All we have left is the internet, where information is still freely available. For the rest, if you want to go on working as a journalist, its total servility to Putin. Otherwise, it can be death, the bullet, poison, or trial—whatever our special services, Putins guard dogs, see fit."

Tommy Mottola Quotes

Andrea A Lunsford Quotes

"Literature might be called the art of story, and story might in turn be called a universal language, for every culture we know of has a tradition of storytelling. No doubt stories have touched your life, too, from bedtime stories you may have heard as a child to news stories you see on TV or read in a newspaper. We might even say that a major goal of living is to created the story of our own lives, a story we hope to take pleasure and pride in telling."

Quotes About Thrown Under The Bus

"One day, an unusually exciting event interrupted the rhythm of our regular middle-class teenage lives. A Russian woman, the mother of a girl in our class, was run over by a New York City bound train right in the center of town. Our classmate left school in the middle of the semester. The gossip was that the woman must have thrown herself under the train. The adults whispered about reasons, usual ones, but my friends and I were too busy planning what to wear to the prom to wonder about the savagery of adult passion." - Author: Inna Swinton

Quotes About Doma Ruling

"Our system was not set up to for the government to be able to do with a mans kingdom what they want. It was set up to protect that mans kingdom, to allow him to feel that his borders, no matter how great or small, would always be secure and that he would always be allowed to defend them. The Supreme Court took that right away with their eminent domain ruling back in 2005. The governments have taken advantage of that eminent domain ruling, and you, the media, have failed at protecting citizens." - Author: Tit Elingtin

Quotes About Friendship Good And Bad

"I knew what I had to do. I had to find some way to make us not hate ourselves or each other for what wed done. If we slunk away, miserable and ashamed, the wrong was all we would remember for the rest of our lives. We would never remember the kindness and gentle affection of those first few weeks of slowly building friendship that had sprung up between us, and suddenly it seemed imperative that we not lose sight of that. We, together, were more than this one mistake. Yes, this was a category-5 shitstorm, a disaster of behemoth proportions, and it was going to leave a metric fuck-ton of emotional debris scattered in its wake, but before everything had gone off the rails, there had been some good, too, and I didnt want that obliterated by the bad." - Author: Amelia C. Gormley
