Ann Cooper Albright Quotes

"For me, this is when the act of watching transforms into the act of witnessing.To witness something implies a responsiveness, the response/ability of the viewer toward the performer. It is radically different from what we might call the consuming gaze that says here, you entertain me, I bought a ticket, and Im going to sit back and watch. This traditional gaze doesnt want to get involved, doesnt want to give anything back."

Eliza Coupe Quotes

"I made sure that instead of people making fun of me, like every comedian probably says, I made fun of myself first so they would get distracted and just laugh. I was pretty brutally picked on for a while growing up. It was always the really pretty girls, the hot girls and then there was me. So I had to do something to get any sort of attention."

Quotes About Obstetricians

"Today, whats normal is being redefined: from vaginal birth to surgical birth; from My water broke, to Lets break your water; from Its time to Its time for the induction. As medical anthropologist Robbie Davis-Floyd writes, in the early twenty-first century, we do not know what normal birth is. Most practicing obstetricians have never witnessed an unplugged birth that wasnt an accident. Women are even beginning to deny normal birth to themselves: if normal means being induced, immobilized by wires and tubes, sped up with drugs, all the while knowing that theres a good chance of surgery, well, might as well just cut to the chase, so to speak. Just give me a cesarean, some are saying. And who can blame them? They want to avoid what they think of as normal birth." - Author: Jennifer Block

Quotes About Birds Songs

"On harsh, frigid January days, when the winds are relentless and the snow piles up around us, I often think of our small feathered friends back on the Third Line. I wonder if the old feeder is still standing in the orchard and if anyone thinks to put out a few crumbs and some bacon drippings for our beautiful, hungry, winter birds. In the stark, white landscape they provided a welcome splash of colour and their songs gave us hope through the long, silent winter." - Author: Arlene Stafford Wilson

Quotes About Secret Romances

"And so he would now study perfumes, and the secrets of their manufacture, distilling heavily-scented oils, and burning odorous gums from the East. He saw that there was no mood of the mind that had not its counterpart in the sensuous life, and set himself to discover their true relations, wondering what there was in frankincense that made one mystical, and in ambergris that stirred ones passions, and in violets that woke the memory of dead romances, and in musk that troubled the brain, and in champak that stained the imagination; and seeking often to elaborate a real psychology of perfumes, and to estimate the several influences of sweet-smelling roots, and scented pollen-laden flower, of aromatic balms, and of dark and fragrant woods, of spikenard that sickens, of hovenia that makes men mad, and of aloes that are said to be able to expel melancholy from the soul." - Author: Oscar Wilde
