[Neither Of Us Uttered A Word About What Happened. We Never Do. But I Can't Smudge It From My Mind. The Farm Boys' Sneering Red Faces. The Runt Shaking The Fence. The Brown Lump Of Spit Tobacco. The Anguish In David's Eyes. They Don't Know The First Thing About Us; They Just Hate Us Because We're Black]

Sister Souljah Quotes

"No one can remain married today because they are not married to the one they love, they are married to their sacrifice, and pretending to love is too damned painful. Love and build, love and work, love and fight. Always love first. Anything placed before love will fail."

Leo Frobenius Quotes

"Instinct is a makeshift, an admission of helplessness before the problem of reality."

Lisa Kogan Quotes

"When I was extremely young and shockingly stupid, I thought you werent supposed to ever get angry at anybody you cared about (lest you suspect Im exaggerating the "shockingly stupid" part, I also thought Mount Rushmore was a natural phenomenon). I honestly believed that people who were truly in love would never dream of having a good, old-fashioned, knock-down, drag-out fight. I guess when youre the type of girl who walks around thinking that the wind just sort of sculpted Teddy Roosevelt into the side of a mountain, the concept of a fairy-tale relationship makes total sense."

Quotes About Krankheit

"Gefährlich und schlecht sind nur jene Traurigkeiten, die man unter die Leute trägt, um sie zu übertönen; wie Krankheiten, die oberflächlich und töricht behandelt werden, treten sie nur zurück und brechen nach einer kleinen Pause um so furchtbarer aus; und sammeln sich an im Innern und sind Leben, sind ungelebtes, verschmähtes, verlorenes Leben, an dem Man sterben kann." - Author: Rainer Maria Rilke

Quotes About Distractions In Life

"I desire nothing, seek nothing but peace, the slumber of the soul. I have tasted all the hollowness and wretchedness of life and I despise it heartily. Whoever has lived and thought cannot but, in his soul, despise humanity. Activity, cares, worries, distractions - I am sick of them all. I wish for nothing, I seek nothing. I have no aim, for one gains that which one is eager for - and sees that it is all illusion. My joyous days have passed. I have cooled to them. In the educated world, amidst human beings, I feel the disadvantages of life too strongly, but alone, far from the crowd, I turn to stone. In this trance anything can happen, I see neither others nor myself. I do nothing and do not notice the actions either of others or myself - and I am at peace, I am indifferent. There can be no happiness for me, and I will not succumb to unhappiness." - Author: Ivan Goncharov

And wrapping myself in wings once broken - I wept, for I was home..." - Author: Kate Mullane Robertson

Quotes About Roman Government

"I know not how the Christians order their own lives, but I know that where their religion begins, Roman rule ends, Rome itself ends, our mode of life ends, the distinction between conquered and conqueror, between rich and poor, lord and slave, ends, government ends, Caesar ends, law and all the order of the world ends; and in place of these appears Christ, with a certain mercy not existent hitherto, and kindness, as opposed to human and our Roman instincts.(Quo Vadis)" - Author: Henryk Stanczyk
