In fact, I know that there isnt even a pie, that theres plenty to go around, enough food and love and air.But I dont believe it for a second.I secretly believe theres a pie. I will go to my grave brandishing my fork." - Author: Anne Lamott

Quotes About Ancient Cleopatra

"A capable, clear-eyed sovereign, she knew how to build a fleet, suppress an insurrection, control a currency, alleviate a famine. An eminent Roman general vouched for her grasp of military affairs. Even at a time when women rulers were no rarity she stood out, the sole female of the ancient world to rule alone and to play a role in Western affairs. She was incomparably richer than anyone else in the Mediterranean. And she enjoyed greater prestige than any other woman of her age..... Cleopatra descended from a long line of murderers and faithfully upheld the family tradition but was, for her time and place, remarkably well behaved. She nonetheless survives as a wanton temptress, not the last time a genuinely powerful woman has been transmuted into a shamelessly seductive one." - Author: Stacy Schiff

Their fathers leave us, sick of crap and sour milk, sweatpants and tears. But the babies still need all of us, only there isnt anything left to give because we based our worth on the lowlifes who knocked us up and around. So our babies end up screwed up and screwed with because not were single again, too, so were bringing home guys who secretly like pink satin baby skin more than our silvery stretch marks. We dont see what we should see because having anyone is till supposedly better than being alone." - Author: Laura Wiess

Quotes About Committing To Yourself

"…sense of futility that comes from doing anything merely to prove to yourself that you can do it: having a child, climbing a mountain, making some sexual conquest, committing suicide.The marathon is a form of demonstrative suicide, suicide as advertising: it is running to show you are capable of getting every last drop of energy out of yourself, to prove it… to prove what? That you are capable of finishing. Graffiti carry the same message. They simply say: Im so-and-so and I exist! They are free publicity for existence.Do we continually have to prove to ourselves that we exist? A strange sign of weakness, harbinger of a new fanaticism for a faceless performance, endlessly self-evident." - Author: Jean Baudrillard
