Claire Dederer Quotes

"Jonathans voice was quiet now. "Thank you for sharing this evening with me. In yoga, we say Namaste, which means I bow to the divine in you." He bowed his dork-knobbed head and said, "Namaste."

Quotes About Dignified Death

"That morning, there was "nothing" to do for Scott, but it took me almost an hour to achieve it. It was a peculiarly distasteful task for me: much of ICU care has this futile quality, this illusion of purposefulness generated by the trappings of technology and invasive procedures. A novice in medicine sees only the drama of the pacemaker and the Swan-Ganz catheter; more years in medicine and you see how suffering is prolonged, hospital bills multiplied tenfold, the possibility of a dignified death diminished." - Author: Abraham Verghese

Quotes About Language And Linguistics

"The entire destiny of modern linguistics is in fact determined by Saussures inaugural act through which he separates the ‘external elements of linguistics from the ‘internal elements, and, by reserving the title of linguistics for the latter, excludes from it all the investigations which establish a relationship between language and anthropology, the political history of those who speak it, or even the geography of the domain where it is spoken, because all of these things add nothing to a knowledge of language taken in itself. Given that it sprang from the autonomy attributed to language in relation to its social conditions of production, reproduction and use, structural linguistics could not become the dominant social science without exercising an ideological effect, by bestowing the appearance of scientificity on the naturalization of the products of history, that is, on symbolic objects." - Author: Pierre Bourdieu

Quotes About Handsomeness

"This is the truth: we all desire to conquer the comely one, because it affirms our own worth. Speaking for the men of the world, we want to own the beauty of the woman were fucking. We want to grasp that beauty, tightly in our greedy little fingers, to well and truly possess it, to make it ours. We want to do this as the woman shines her way through an orgasm. Thats perfection. And while I cant speak for women, I imagine that they-whether they admit it or not-want the same thing: to possess the man, to own his rough handsomeness, if only for a few seconds." - Author: Andrew Davidson

Quotes About Beauty And Nature

"Four seasons fill the measure of the year;There are four seasons in the mind of Man:He has his lusty Spring, when fancy clearTakes in all beauty with an easy span:He has his Summer, when luxuriouslySprings honeyed cud of youthful thought he lovesTo ruminate, and by such dreaming highIs nearest unto heaven: quiet covesHis soul has in its Autumn, when his wingsHe furleth close; contented so to lookOn mists in idleness -to let fair thingsPass by unheeded as a threshold brook: - He has his Winter too of pale misfeature,Or else he would forgo his mortal nature." - Author: John Keats

Quotes About Being A Bad Chick

"It seemed like he could never figure out which Trudie he loved the best, the docile church basement lady in the moon boots or the rebellious chick with the sexy lingerie.

Youre good or youre bad. Actually, very good or very bad. Or very good at being very bad without being detected." - Author: Miriam Toews
