Nikesh Shukla Quotes

"I dodged him for a few months with excuses about not being able to, not having the time to, not being bothered to tape it. When I was out of sensible excuses, I played the race card and told Paul Fine straight: "Taping the album for you is selling out to the white man, letting him have our music. Nah, man. For us by us..." "But youre not black.""Fuck you, Fine. Im politically black from an oppressed race. Dont speak to me about no race politics or Ill lynch you like you done to my people.""Im Jewish...""Whatever man. I aint got no tapes."

Eric Ludy Quotes

"Jesus didnt just give hugs; He also gave a hammer. Paul didnt just pass on holy kisses; he also tirelessly dealt out swift and holy kicks to the rear end of the ancient church. The Bible has the manly stuff intact, and that is why it is such a great mystery how it got lost in the modern church."

Marcin Pilis Quotes

"Czy to możliwe, że mówiący po polsku ludzie są zdolni do takiej podłości? Przecież my jesteśmy szlachetni. Nasz naród to samo dobro. Co złe, to nie my. Wszystko co złe, to oni. Tylko oni. My nie, my walczymy tylko w słusznych sprawach. A jak już walczymy, to w sposób szlachetny. Szlachetnie zabijamy, a nie po barbarzyńsku."

Ken Ilgunas Quotes

"only feel wronged when we realize something has been stolen from us. We cant miss the million-strong flocks of passenger pigeons that once blackened our skies. We dont really miss the herds of bison that grazed in meadows where our suburbs stand. And few think of dark forests lit up with the bright green eyes of its mammalian lords. Soon, the glaciers will go with the clear skies and clean waters and all the feelings they once stirred. Its the greatest heist of mankind, our inheritance being stolen like this. But how can we care or fight back when we dont even know what has been or is being taken from us?"

Quotes About Reliving

"I used to think all that game playing was par for the course and even kind of exciting. It just felt logical to pursue a boy the same way I applied to college—by expending exorbitant time and energy showing what a great catch I am and what a perfect match wed be, so that after a lengthy waiting period I might get accepted. But now the idea of reliving any version of that charade seems like hell." - Author: Daria Snadowsky

Quotes About Knowing Who You Are

"When you believe without knowing you believe that you are damaged at your core, you also believe that you need to hide that damage for anyone to love you. You walk around ashamed of being yourself. You try hard to make up for the way you look, walk, feel. Decisions are agonizing because if you, the person who makes the decision, is damaged, then how can you trust what you decide? You doubt your own impulses so you become masterful at looking outside yourself for comfort. You become an expert at finding experts and programs, at striving and trying hard and then harder to change yourself, but this process only reaffirms what you already believe about yourself -- that your needs and choices cannot be trusted, and left to your own devices you are out of control (p.82-83)" - Author: Geneen Roth

Quotes About Remembering Past Friends

"Friendship is indispensable to man for the proper function of his memory. Remembering our past, carrying it with us always, may be the necessary requirement for maintaining, as they say, the wholeness of the self. To ensure that the self doesnt shrink, to see that it holds on to its volume, memories have to be watered like potted flowers, and the watering calls for regular contact with the witnesses of the past, that is to say, with friends. They are our mirror; our memory; we ask nothing of them but that they polish the mirror from time to time so we can look at ourselves in it." - Author: Milan Kundera

You know, getting hurt. Putting herself out there, opening up to someone.Yeah, he said, adding some cheese straws to the car, but risk is just part of relationships. Sometimes they work, sometimes they dont.I picked up a box of cheese straws, examinig it. Yeah, I said. But its not all about chance, either.Meaning what? he asked, taking the box from me and adding the rest.Just that, if you know ahead of time that there might an issue that dooms everything- like, say, youre incredibly controlling and independent, like Harriet- maybe its better to acknowledge that and not waste your time.
