Quotes About Unpaid Work

"Only by remembering to say no will the women of 21st century regain their voice and remember their power. No is the most important word in a womans dialectic arsenal, and it is the one word that our employers, our leaders, and quite often, the men in our lives would do anything to prevent us from saying. No, we will not serve. No, we will not settle for the dirty work, the low-paid work, the unpaid work. No, we will not stay late at the office, look after the kids, sort out the shopping. We refuse to fit the enormity of our passion, our creativity, and our potential into the rigid physical prison laid down for us since we were small children. No. We refuse. We will not buy your clothes and shoes and surgical solutions. No, we will not be beautiful; we will not be good. Most of all, we refuse to be beautiful and good." - Author: Laurie Penny

Quotes About Choice And Chance

"Quinn froze. There was nothing he could do now that would not be a mistake. Whatever choice he made--and he had to make a choice--would be arbitrary, a submission to chance.

Quin craved an amoebas body, wanting to cut himself in half and run off in two directions at once. (Chapter 7)" - Author: Paul Auster

Quotes About Backyards

"Corn is at the core of modern agribusiness, the most important food crop in North America. In no other crop are the values of modern commercial agribusiness as thoroughly embedded. There is nothing we can do that is ultimately subversive - there is no act of gardening that is so profound a rebellion, there is no act of eating that is so potent a blow for food quality and food system sanity - as to take back the corn crop in our own backyards, and grow, breed, eat, and save seed of corn based upon an entirely different set of values." - Author: Carol Deppe

To leave the world a little better than you found it. Thats the best a man can ever do." - Author: Paul Auster
