Quotes About Hurt Feelings Pain

"McChrystals defenders at the Pentagon were making the case Tuesday that the president and his men—(the McChrystal snipers spared Hillary)—must put aside their hurt feelings about being painted as weak sisters. Obama should not fire the serially insubordinate general, they reasoned, because that would undermine the mission in Afghanistan, and if that happens, then Obama would be further weakened.So the commander in chief can be bad-mouthed as weak by the military but then he cant punish the military because that would make him weak? Its the same sort of pass-the-Advil vicious circle reasoning the military always uses." - Author: Maureen Dowd

Quotes About Yarn

"It starts with a craving to fill the long evening downslant. There will be whole wide days of watching winter drag her skirts cross the mud-yard from east to west, going nowhere. You will want to nail down all these wadded handfuls of time, to stick-pin them to the blocking board, frame them on a 24-stitch gauge. Ten to the inch, ten rows to the hour, straggling trellises of days held fast in the acreage of a shawl. Time by this means will be domesticated and cannot run away. (In Knitting Yarns: Writers on Knitting)" - Author: Barbara Kingsolver

Quotes About Cotidiano

"Una mujer es la historia de sus actos y pensamientos, de sus células y neuronas, de sus heridas y entusiasmos, de sus amores y desamores. Una mujer es inevitablemente la historia de su vientre, de las semillas que en él fecundaron, o no lo hicieron, o dejaron de hacerlo, y del momento aquél, el único en que se es diosa. Una mujer es la historia de lo pequeño, lo trivial, lo cotidiano, la suma de lo callado. Una mujer es siempre la historia de muchos hombres. Una mujer es la historia de su pueblo y de su raza. Y es la historia de sus raíces y de su origen, de cada mujer que fue alimentada por la anterior, para que ella naciera: una mujer es la historia de su sangre.Pero también es la historia de una conciencia y de sus luchas interiores. También una mujer es la historia de su utopía." - Author: Marcela Serrano

"Libraries are like houses of worship: Whether or not you use them yourself, its important to know that they are there. In many ways they define a society and the values of that society. Librarians to me are the keepers of the flame of knowledge. When I was growing up, the librarian in my local library looked like a meek little old lady, but after you spent some time with her, you realized she was Athena with a sword, a wise and wonderful repository of wisdom." - Author: Jane Stanton Hitchcock
