Quotes About Victims Of Society

"Combat and rape, the public and private forms of organized social violence, are primarily experiences of adolescent and early adult life. The United States Army enlists young men at seventeen; the average age of the Vietnam combat soldier was nineteen. In many other countries boys are conscripted for military service while barely in their teens. Similarly, the period of highest risk for rape is in late adolescence. Half of all victims are aged twenty or younger at the time they are raped; three-quarters are between the ages of thirteen and twenty-six. The period of greatest psychological vulnerability is also in reality the period of greatest traumatic exposure, for both young men and young women. Rape and combat might thus be considered complementary social rites of initiation into the coercive violence at the foundation of adult society. They are the paradigmatic forms of trauma for women and men." - Author: Judith Lewis Herman

Quotes About Energy Use

"I stopped in the full force of a patch of sunlight in the lobby window and let my skin soak up the energy.

Quotes About Lord Vishnu

"Can I be honest here? I dont read forewords. Can I be painfully honest? I dont even know what forewords are for. Am I supposed to somehow convince you to buy this book? Are you, even now, standing in a bookstore, reading this, your gut roiling with indecision? That doesnt seem to make sense to me. For one thing, you can see the folks in this anthology. Youve read their names on the cover. It couldnt be more impressive if it included Lord Vishnu and Optimus Prime." - Author: Shawn Speakman

Quotes About Bullfighting In Spain

"It is easy to take a stand about a remote issue, but speciesists, like racists, reveal their true nature when the issue comes nearer home. To protest about bullfighting in Spain, the eating of dogs in South Korea, or the slaughter of baby seals in Canada, while continuing to eat eggs from hens who have spent their lives crammed into cages, or veal from calves who have been deprived of their mothers, their proper diet, or the freedom to lie down with their legs extended, is like denouncing apartheid in South Africa while asking your neighbors not to sell their houses to blacks." - Author: Peter Singer

Quotes About Cases

"Given the power and influence that science increasingly has in our daily lives, it is important that we as citizens of an open and democratic society learn to separate good science from bunk. This is not just a matter of intellectual curiosity, as it affects where large portions of our tax money go, and in some cases even whether peoples lives are lost as a result of nonsense." - Author: Massimo Pigliucci
