[Louise Was An Urbanite, She Preferred The Gut-thrilling Sound Of An Emergency Siren Slicing Through The Night To The Noise Of Country Birds At Dawn. Pub Brawls, Rackety Roadworks, Mugged Tourists, The Badlands On A Saturday Night - They All Made Sense, They Were All Part Of The Huge, Dirty, Torn Social Fabric. There Was A War Raging Out There In The City And She Was Part Of The Fight, But The Countryside Unsettled Her Because She Didn't Know Who The Enemy Was. She Had Always Preferred North And South To Wuthering Heights. All That Demented Running Around The Moors, Identifying Yourself With The Scenery, Not A Good Role Model For A Woman.]

Anthony Bourdain Quotes

"In another telling anomaly of the meat-grinding business, many of the larger slaughterhouses will sell their product only to grinders who agree to not test their product for E. coli contamination--until after its run through a grinder with a whole bunch of other meat from other sources...Its like demanding of a date that she have unprotected sex with four or five other guys immediately before sleeping with you--just so she cant point the finger directly at you should she later test positive for clap."

JD Scrubs Quotes

Quotes About Passion For Music

"For me, music is sort of my passion, more so than being an actor. I just never tried to make a career as a musician. It was just something that I did on my own time, just for me. I had written a lot of songs, but I dont really record a lot of music because, for me, its the same way as a poet: I write to get things out. Its sort of cathartic." - Author: Steve Kazee

Quotes About Implorar

"Comenzó por recurrir al orgullo, que es una consecuencia de la esperanza y un íntimo convencimiento de la propia inocencia; después dudó de su inocencia, lo que no dejaba de justificar un tanto las suposiciones de locura del gobernador, y por último cayó del pedestal de su orgullo, y no para implorar a Dios, sino a los hombres. Dios es el último recurso. El desgraciado que debería comenzar por él, no llega a implorarle sino después de haber agotado todas sus esperanzas" - Author: Alexandre Dumas

Quotes About Owning A Car

"She twisted a piece of his T-shirt, then let it go and laid her palm flat against his chest, right over his heart, and he could suddenly feel it again: the steady thump of it drowning out all his other thoughts. It was more drumbeat than countdown, more metronome than ticking clock, and he felt himself carried forward with each muffled beat, as if hope were a rhythm, a song hed only just discovered." - Author: Jennifer E. Smith

Quotes About Debilitating

"Again and again workers told me that they are under tremendous pressure not to report injuries. The annual bonuses of plant foremen and supervisors are often based in part on the injury rate of their workers. Instead of crating a safer workplace, these bonus schemes encourage slaughterhouse managers to make sure that accidents and injuries go unreported. Missing fingers, broken bones, deep lacerations and amputated limbs are difficult to conceal from authorities. But the dramatic and catastrophic injuries in a slaughterhouse are greatly outnumbered by less visible, though no less debilitating, ailments: torn muscles, slipped disks, pinched nerves." - Author: Eric Schlosser

Quotes About Sustainable Cities

"How reprehensible it is when those blessed with commodities insist on ignoring the poor. Better to torment them, force them into indentured servitude, inflict compulsion and blows—this at least produces a connection, fury and a pounding heart, and these too constitute a form of relationship. But to cower in elegant homes behind golden garden gates, fearful lest the breath of warm humankind touch you, unable to indulge in extravagances for fear they might be glimpsed by the embittered oppressed, to oppress and yet lack the courage to show yourself as an oppressor, even to fear the ones you are oppressing, feeling ill at ease in your own wealth and begrudging others their ease, to resort to disagreeable weapons that require neither true audacity nor manly courage, to have money, but only money, without splendor: Thats what things look like in our cities at present" - Author: Robert Walser
