[She Washed Her Hands Three Times. Velia Gripped The Sink, Dropping Her Head And Watching The Tinged Water Drain. Trying To Get A Grip, She Held Back Tears And Vomit, And Would Have Been Fine If Not For Seeing More Blood Splatters On Her Sleeves. She Held On To Her Last Bit Of Strength, Still Refusing To Cry. God, Let This Be A Nightmare!]

Quotes About Education And Teachers

"I suppose it was a dream that lasted really about fifty years. By the time universal education had begun to work properly, say 1925, and the time the first teachers started to hold back information, say 1975. So a fifty-year dream.""I think whats happened is that because they themselves know less than their predecessors, innovators and leaders today have remade the world in their own image. Spellchecks. Search engines. Theyve remodeled the world so that ignorance is not really a disadvantage. And I should think that increasingly theyll carry on reshaping the world to accommodate a net loss of knowledge." - Author: Sebastian Faulks

Quotes About Modern Life

"When our mother is seen only as the one-dimensional Mary of modern times, instead of the great dual force of life and death, She is relegated to the same second-class status of most women in the world. She is without desires of Her own, selfless and sexless except for Her womb. She is the cook, the mistress, bearer and caretaker of children and men. Men call upon Her and carry Her love and magic to form a formidable fortress, a team of cannons to protect them against their enemies. But for a long, long time the wars that women have been left to wage on behalf of men, on behalf of the human race, have started much sooner, in the home, in front of the hearth, in the womb. We do what we must to protect and provide for our young our families, our tribes" - Author: Ana Castillo

Quotes About Being Unheard

"And so when you have lost everything, no more roads, no direction, no fixed signs, no ground, no thoughts able to resist other thoughts, when you are lost, beside yourself, and you continue getting lost, when you become the panicky movement of getting lost, then, thats when, where you are unwoven weft, flesh that lets strangeness come through, defenseless being, without resistance, without batten, without skin, inundated with otherness, its in these breathless times that writings traverse you, songs of an unheard-of purity flow through you, addressed to no one, they well up, surge forth, from the throats of your unknown inhabitants, these are the cries that death and life hurl in their combat." - Author: Hélène Cixous

Quotes About Yoked

"They yoked themselves to a car and drew her all the long way through dust and heat.

As she finished her prayer the two lads sank to the ground. They were smiling and they looked as if they were peacefully asleep but they were dead. (Biton and Cleobis)" - Author: Edith Hamilton

Quotes About Angels In The Sky

"It struck her hard how it was often the ordinary acts that were angelic. Maybe there were angels in the sky and maybe there werent. Maybe angels helped arrange for Tom to be the one to drive along right at that moment. She didnt know. But what she did know was that there were angels on the ground.

And that made Tom an angel to her, one no less divine than any angels that might be in the sky." - Author: Kaya McLaren

"In order to figure this artmaking stuff out, its trial and error and experimentation, and takes some time and hard thinking.
