Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson Quotes

"What struck me whenever I visited a farm was how much more sophisticated was the life the animals were capable of living than was assumed by those exploiting them. The more we are willing to see about their lives, the more we will see. Humans seem to take perverse pleasure in attributing stupidity to animals when it is almost always entirely a question of human ignorance."

Danielle Henderson Quotes

"Normally when I tell people Im a gender studies major, they look at me like Im studying Sanskrit or Latin. But now, NOW I had something to show my family, to possibly convince them that one day I would be employable. Look! People still like feminism! Or maybe they just really like Ryan Goslings face. But theyre getting that face with a dose of feminism! Like it or not."

John Lanchester Quotes

"The economic metaphor came to be applied to every aspect of modern life, especially the areas where it simply didnt belong. In fields such as education, equality of opportunity, health, employees rights, the social contract and culture, the first conversation to happen should be about values and principles; then you have the conversation about costs, and what you as a society can afford."

Quotes About And Change

"The moral conscience that so many thoughtless people have offended against and many more have rejected, is something that exists and has always existed. It was not an invention of the philosophers of the Quartenary, when the soul was little more than a muddled proposition. With the passing of time, as well as then social evolution and genetic exchange, we ended up putting our conscience in the colour of blood and in the salt of tears, and, as if that were not enough, we made our eyes into a kind of mirror turned inwards, with the result that they often show without reserve what we are verbally trying to deny. Add to this general observation, the particular circumstance that in simple spirits, the remorse caused by committing some evil act often becomes confused with ancestral fears of every kind, and the result will be that the punishment of the prevaricator ends up being, without mercy or pity, twice what he deserved." - Author: José Saramago

"Religion is spelled D-O, because it consists of the things people do try to somehow gain Gods forgiveness and favor. But the problem is that you never know when youve done enough.

To become a real Christian is to humbly receive Gods gift of forgiveness and to commit to following His leadership." - Author: Bill Hybels
