John Leo Quotes

"Instead of the traditional emphasis on the sanctity of life, bioethics began to stress the quality of life, meaning that many damaged humans, young and old, dont qualify for personhood because their lives have lost value."

Patricia J Williams Quotes

"In the law, rights are islands of empowerment. . . . Rights contain images of power, and manipulating those images, either visually or linguistically, is central in the making and maintenance of rights. In principle, therefore, the more dizzyingly diverse the images that are propagated, the more empowered we will be as a society."

John Michael Hayes Quotes

Robert Ludlum Quotes

"Hate and love are essentially the same in that the person who loves is as easily manipulated as a person who hates"

Elisabeth Eaves Quotes

"I know its not strictly sex that accounts for my straying the motive usually attributed to men. I think its just too tempting to have two lives rather than one. Some people think that too much travel begets infidelity: Separation and opportunity test the bonds of love. I think its more likely that people who hate to make choices to settle on one thing or another are attracted to travel. Travel doesnt beget a double life. The appeal of the double life begets travel."

Quotes About Shared Success

"When did you first feel like a grown woman and not a girl?" We wrote down our answers and shared them, first in pairs, then in larger groups. The group of women was racially and economically diverse, but the answers had a very similar theme. Almost everyone first realized they were becoming a grown woman when some dude did something nasty to them. "I was walking home from ballet and a guy in a car yelled, ‘Lick me!" "I was babysitting my younger cousins when a guy drove by and yelled, ‘Nice ass." There were pretty much zero examples like "I first knew I was a woman when my mother and father took me out to dinner to celebrate my success on the debate team." It was mostly men yelling shit from cars. Are they a patrol sent out to let girls know theyve crossed into puberty? If so, its working." - Author: Tina Fey

No, rebellion wont pose a problem for this social order." - Author: Laura Kipnis

Quotes About Hillel

"He talked about luck and fate and numbers coming up, yet he never ventured a nickel at the casinos because he knew the house had all the percentages. And beneath his pessimism, his bleak conviction that all the machinery was rigged against him, at the bottom of his soul was a faith that he was going to outwit it, that by carefully watching the signs he was going to know when to dodge and be spared. It was fatalism with a loophole, and all you had to do to make it work was never miss a sign. Survival by coordination, as it were. The race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, but to those who can see it coming and jump aside. Like a frog evading a shillelagh in a midnight marsh." - Author: Hunter S. Thompson

Quotes About Biological Control

"Dominator culture teaches all of us that the core of our identity is defined by the will to dominate and control others. We are taught that this will to dominate is more biologically hardwired in males than in females. In actuality, dominator culture teaches us that we are all natural-born killers but that males are more able to realize the predator role. In the dominator model the pursuit of external power, the ability to manipulate and control others, is what matters most. When culture is based on a dominator model, not only will it be violent but it will frame all relationships as power struggles." - Author: Bell Hooks

Quotes About Last Supper

"You dont restore The Last Supper by filling in the missing bits - you preserve. You accept the material that has somehow survived." - Author: David Chipperfield
