MB Dallocchio Quotes

"There were waves of genocide that overcame indigenous populations of Oceania and do we have a library of books or films to tell our story? No. We have tourist hula shows and commercials where the "natives" tend to tourists like indentured servants with plastic, lifeless smiles. Its not such a charming picture, is it? The truth is ugly, but so is ignorance or denial of such atrocities and pain."

King Albert II Quotes

"But if our hopes are betrayed, if we are forced to resist the invasion of our soil, and to defend our threatened homes, this duty, however hard it may be, will find us armed and resolved upon the greatest sacrifices."

Kay Hagan Quotes

"I need to be looking at whats important in North Carolina, and you better believe thats what I will do."

Richard Taruskin Quotes

"It is tempting to look upon England as a sort of musical Australia, an island culture inhabited by, and sustaining, its own insular fauna – musical kangaroos, koalas, and platypuses. That, however, would be very much to exaggerate Englands musical isolation or independence. It is also a considerable exaggeration to view the English preference for thirds as something altogether alien or opposed to continental practice, as if only in remote geographical corners (and behind closed doors, among consenting adults) could harmonies unsanctioned by Pythagoras or the Musica enchiriadis be furtively enjoyed."

Lemony Snicket Quotes

"Besides getting several paper cuts in the same day or receiving the news that someone in your family has betrayed you to your enemies, one of the most unpleasant experiences in life is a job interview."

William C Bullitt Quotes

"...My deepest personal reason for staying in Paris is that whatever I have as a character, good or bad, is based on the fact that since the age of four I have never run away from anything however painful or dangerous when I thought it was my duty to take a stand -- the American Ambassador to France upon being asked to evacuate Paris by the State Department on the eve of Nazi occupation of Paris in 1940"

Dennis Rodman Quotes

"They didnt have a problem with me being wild and crazy when it came time to fill the arenas."

Bill Mauldin Quotes

"I was a born troublemaker and might as well earn a living at it."

Harold Nicolson Quotes

"Let us educate the younger generation to be shy in and out of season: to edge behind the furniture: to say spasmodic and ill-digested things: to twist their feet round the protective feet of sofas and armchairs: to feel that their hands belong to someone else--that they are objects, which they long to put down on some table away from themselves.For shyness is the protective fluid within which our personalities are able to develop into natural shapes. Without this fluid the character becomes merely standardized or imitative: it is within the tender velvet sheath of shyness that the full flower of idiosyncrasy is nurtured: it is from this sheath alone that it can eventually unfold itself, coloured and undamaged. Let the shy understand, therefore, that their disability is not only an inconvenience, but also a privilege. Let them regard their shyness as a gift rather than as an affliction. Let them consider how intolerable are those of their contemporaries who are not also shy."

Debbie Nicholson Quotes

"Sweet serenity; the love and magic of two souls forever intertwined"

Quotes About Narcis

"Theres no way out," he announced with satisfaction, "and no amount of wishful dreaming will produce one. The demon wont go back in its bottle, the face-off is for ever, the embrace gets tighter and the toys cleverer with every generation, and theres no such thing for either side as enough security. Not for the main players, not for the nasty little newcomers who each year run themselves up a suitcase bomb and join the club. We get tired of believing that, because were human. We may even con ourselves into believing the threat has gone away. It never will. Never, never, never.""So, wholl save us then, Walt?" Barley asked. "You and Nedsky?""Vanity, if anything will, which I doubt," Walter retorted. "No leader wants to go down in history as the ass who destroyed his country in an afternoon. And funk, I suppose. Most of our gallant politicians do have a narcissistic objection to suicide, thank God." - Author: John le Carré

Quotes About Resurrection In The Bible

"One of the earliest resurrection scenes in the Bible is that of Thomas demanding evidence - he wanted to see, to touch, to prove. Those who question and probe and debate are heirs of the apostles just as much as the most fervent of believers." - Author: Jon Meacham

Quotes About Respect In Marriage

"[L]asting love is something a person has to decide to experience. Lifelong monogamous devotion is just not natural—not for women even, and emphatically not for men. It requires what, for lack of a better term, we can call an act of will. . . . This isnt to say that a young man cant hope to be seized by love. . . . But whether the sheer fury of a mans feelings accurately gauges their likely endurance is another question. The ardor will surely fade, sooner or later, and the marriage will then live or die on respect, practical compatibility, simple affection, and (these days, especially) determination. With the help of these things, something worthy of the label love can last until death. But it will be a different kind of love from the kind that began the marriage. Will it be a richer love, a deeper love, a more spiritual love? Opinions vary. But its certainly a more impressive love." - Author: Robert Wright

Quotes About Scar

"I was like any new bride, who said, Im going to cook for my man. In fact, once I started a small kitchen fire in a pan. Smoke was pouring from the pan, and I got really scared. Right next to our stove is a small fire extinguisher. You know, easy access." - Author: Catherine Zeta Jones

Quotes About Bernie Sanders

"Its almost hard to imagine anything more undemocratic than the view that political officials should not debate American wars in public, but only express concerns privately with the administration. Thats just a small sliver of Johnsons radicalism: replacing Feingold in the Senate with Ron Johnson would be a civil liberties travesty analogous to the economic travesty from, say, replacing Bernie Sanders with Lloyd Blankfein." - Author: Glenn Greenwald

Quotes About The Sky And The Sea

"Ill never be like this again . . . Ill never again feel as tall as the sky and as old as the hills and as strong as the sea. Ive been given something for a while, and the price of it is that I have to give it back. And the reward is giving it back, too. No human could live like this. You could spend a day looking at a flower to see how wonderful it is, and that wouldnt get the milking done. No wonder we dream our way through our lives. To be awake, and see it all as it really is...no one could stand that for long." - Author: Terry Pratchett

Quotes About Purple

"When Im a teacher, I wont be using red pens to grade papers. Red pens will forever be associated with criticism and bad grades in my mind. I dont want this person to get their short story back with harsh red pen marks all over it. Purple is much friendlier." - Author: Susane Colasanti

Quotes About Sexuality And Gender

"Sexism occurs when we assume that some people are less valid or natural than others because of their sex, gender, or sexuality; it occurs when we project our own expectations and assumptions about sex, gender, and sexuality onto other people, and police their behaviors accordingly; it occurs when we reduce another person to their sex, gender, or sexuality rather than seeing them as a whole, legitimate person. That is sexism. And a person is a legitimate feminist when they have made a commitment to challenging sexist double standards wherever and whenever they arise. An individuals personal style, mannerisms, identity, consensual sexual partners, and live choices simply shouldnt factor into it." - Author: Julia Serano
