"People will feel safer around you and speak truthfully to you when they feel you are listening intently to them."

Gabriel Osmonde Quotes

"... supraoamenilor nu trebuie să li se explice nimic, ei n-au nevoie de permisiunea noastră, smulg vieții ceea ce au chef să ia. Se revoltă, ucid, violează fiindcă se numesc Attila sau Don Juan. Cât despre ceilalți, oamenii medii, cei slabi, turma, trebuie să li se spună adevărul. Să li se spună că sunt muritori, că toată viața vor avea un număr foarte limitat de amanți sau amante, câteva porniri de eroism, câteva revolte minuscule și că, pentru a profita de ea, e mai bine să fie supuși și... proști. Tocmai ceea ce sunt. Atunci le va fi permis să stea în fața televizorului să se uite la meci (bere și alune), pe urmă să-și călărească nevasta, să cumpere călătorii la preț redus prin comitetul lor de întreprindere, să joace la loto, să nu se gândească la moarte, nici la sensul vieții. Căci tocmai ăsta e idealul oricărei societăți care se respectă: să-i asigure cetățeanului statutul unui prost fericit care nu se gândește la sensul vieții."

"The principal advantages of living in your stations section house is that it is cheap, close to work and its not your parents flat.

Quotes About Family No Matter What

"When my generation of women walked away from the kitchen we were escorted down that path by a profiteering industry that knew a tired, vulnerable marketing target when they saw it. "Hey, ladies," it said to us, "go ahead, get liberated. Well take care of dinner." They threw open the door and we walked into a nutritional crisis and genuinely toxic food supply. If you think toxic is an exaggeration, read the package directions for handling raw chicken from a CAFO. We came a long way, baby, into bad eating habits and collaterally impaired family dynamics. No matter what else we do or believe, food remains at the center of every culture. Ours now runs on empty calories." - Author: Barbara Kingsolver

Quotes About Witches Flying

"Witches and sorcerers cultivated plants with the power to "cast spells" -- in our vocabulary, "psychoactive" plants. Their potion recipes called for such things as datura, opium poppies, belladona, hashish, fly-agaric mushrooms (Amanita muscaria), and the skin of toads (which can contain DMT, a powerful hallucinogen). These ingredients would be combined in a hempseed-oil-based "flying ointment" that the witches would then administer vaginally using a special dildo. This was the "broomstick" by which these women were said to travel. (119)" - Author: Michael Pollan
