Quotes About Self Delusions

"Reclaimed by the small-time day-to-day, pretending life is Back To Normal, wrapping herself shivering against contingencys winter in some threadbare blanket of first-quarter expenses, school committees, cable-bill irregularities, a workday jittering with low-life fantasies for which "fraud" is often too elegant a term, upstairs neighbors to whom bathtub caulking is an alien concept, symptoms upper-respiratory and lower-intestinal, all in the quaint belief that change will always be gradual enough to manage, with insurance, with safety equipment, with healthy diets and regular exercise, and that evil never comes roaring out of the sky to explode into anybodys towering delusions about being exempt. . ." - Author: Thomas Pynchon

Quotes About George W Bushs Presidency

"When George Plimpton asked Ernest Hemingway what the best training for an aspiring writer would be in a 1954 interview, Hem replied, "Lets say that he should go out and hang himself because he finds that writing well is impossibly difficult.

At least he will have the story of the hanging to commence with." - Author: Hemingway Ernest

Quotes About Worst Past

"Life is painful and messed up. It gets complicated at the worst of times, and sometimes you have no idea where to go or what to do. Lots of times people just let themselves get lost, dropping into a wide open, huge abyss. But thats why we have to keep trying. We have to push through all that hurts us, work past all our memories that are haunting us. Sometimes the things that hurt us are the things that make us strongest. A life without experience, in my opinion, is no life at all. And thats why I tell everyone that, even when it hurts, never stop yourself from living." - Author: Alysha Speer

Quotes About Agricultural Education

"Most people of my grandparents generation had an intuitive sense of agricultural basics ... This knowledge has vanished from our culture. We also have largely convinced ourselves it wasnt too important. Consider how many Americans might respond to a proposal that agriculture was to become a mandatory subject in all schools ... A fair number of parents would get hot under the collar to see their kids attention being pulled away from the essentials of grammar, the all-important trigonometry, to make room for down-on-the-farm stuff. The baby boom psyche embraces a powerful presumption that education is a key to moving away from manual labor and dirt--two undeniable ingredients of farming. Its good enough for us that somebody, somewhere, knows food production well enough to serve the rest of us with all we need to eat, each day of our lives." - Author: Barbara Kingsolver
