[Once You Got Started, All You Had To Do Was Keep Placing One Foot In Front Of The Other, No Matter How Happy Or Sad You Were. I'd Taken That First Step Because I'd Wanted To Look Better. I'd Wanted My Clothes To Fit. But It Hadn't Taken Me Long To Figure Out That The Biggest Benefit Was Less About Vanity Than It Was About Sanity. Walking Always Helped.]

Quotes About District Nurses

"To generate exuberant diversity in a citys streets and districts four conditions are indispensable:1. The district, and indeed as many of its internal parts as possible, must serve more than one primary function; preferably more than two...2. Most blocks must be short; that is, streets and opportunities to turn corners must be frequent.3. The district must mingle buildings that vary in age and condition, including a good proportion of old ones so that they vary in the economic yield they must produce. This mingling must be fairly close-grained.4. There must be a sufficiently dense concentration of people, for whatever purposes they may be there..." - Author: Jane Jacobs

Quotes About Philanthropic

"If [a man] spent his money, say, in giving parties for his friends, they (we may hope) would get pleasure, and so would all those upon whom he spent money, such as the butcher, the baker, and the bootlegger. But if he spends it (let us say) upon laying down rails for surface cars in some place where surface cars turn out not to be wanted, he has diverted a mass of labor into channels where it gives pleasure to no one. Nevertheless, when he becomes poor through failure of his investment he will be regarded as a victim of undeserved misfortune, whereas the gay spendthrift, who has spent his money philanthropically, will be despised as a fool and a frivolous person." - Author: Bertrand Russell

Quotes About Blondes And Redheads

"The walls, where there was room, were well decorated with calendars and posters showing bright, improbable girls with pumped-up breasts and no hips - blondes, brunettes and redheads, but always with this bust development, so that a visitor of another species might judge from the preoccupation of artist and audience that the seat of procreation lay in the mammaries. Alice Chicoy...who worked among the shining girls, was wide-hipped and sag-chested and she walked well back on her heels...She was not in the least jealous of the calendar girls and the Coca-Cola girls. She had never seen anyone like them, and she didnt think anyone ever had." - Author: John Steinbeck

Quotes About Progeny

"Until recently, most environmental organizations offered only token attention to children.

Quotes About Afraid Of Failure

"Think of it this way: There are two kinds of failure. The first comes from never trying out your ideas because you are afraid, or because you are waiting for the perfect time. This kind of failure you can never learn from, and such timidity will destroy you. The second kind comes from a bold and venturesome spirit. If you fail in this way, the hit that you take to your reputation is greatly outweighed by what you learn. Repeated failure will toughen your spirit and show you with absolute clarity how things must be done." - Author: Robert Greene
