Quotes About Knowing Who You Are And What You Want

"Today, whats normal is being redefined: from vaginal birth to surgical birth; from My water broke, to Lets break your water; from Its time to Its time for the induction. As medical anthropologist Robbie Davis-Floyd writes, in the early twenty-first century, we do not know what normal birth is. Most practicing obstetricians have never witnessed an unplugged birth that wasnt an accident. Women are even beginning to deny normal birth to themselves: if normal means being induced, immobilized by wires and tubes, sped up with drugs, all the while knowing that theres a good chance of surgery, well, might as well just cut to the chase, so to speak. Just give me a cesarean, some are saying. And who can blame them? They want to avoid what they think of as normal birth." - Author: Jennifer Block

Quotes About Changing Your Life

"And thats why Ive been talking only about you and the tension within you, because you are—not in a clichéd sense, but in a weirdly literal sense—the future. After you walk up here and walk back down, youre going to be the present. You will be the broken world and the act of changing it, in a way that you havent been before. You will be so many things, and the one thing that I wish Id known and want to say is, dont just be yourself. Be all of yourselves. Dont just live. Be that other thing connected to death. Be life. Live all of your life. Understand it, see it, appreciate it. And have fun." - Author: Joss Whedon

Quotes About Life And Family

"it is very telling what we dont hear in eulogies. We almost never hear things like: "The crowning achievement of his life was when he made senior vice president." Or: "He increased market share for his company multiple times during his tenure." Or: "She never stopped working. She ate lunch at her desk. Every day." Or: "He never made it to his kids Little League games because he always had to go over those figures one more time." Or: "While she didnt have any real friends, she had six hundred Facebook friends, and she dealt with every email in her in-box every night." Or: "His PowerPoint slides were always meticulously prepared." Our eulogies are always about the other stuff: what we gave, how we connected, how much we meant to our family and friends, small kindnesses, lifelong passions, and the things that made us laugh." - Author: Arianna Huffington

Quotes About Salt And Friendship

"The three of us do not go out very often as the three of us. I think Daniel is perfect for Jed, which is the highest compliment I can give. But my friendship isnt with him, and Jed understands that. When we hit the road, we hit it together alone.We get to the bridge, out undestined destination. Even though theres no sign, no arrow, Jed turns at the last minute and parks us in a verge right before the bridge leaves the ground.The trunk pops open, and Jed runs round back to retrieve a bag of oranges and a sweatshirt that fits me better.Shall we make like lizards and leap? he asks.I never felt the urge to jump off a bridge, but there are times I have wanted to jump out of my life, out of my skin. Would you stroll me down the promenade instead? I ask back.Most certainly, my splendid. There is no word for our kind of friendship. Two people tho dont see each other a lot, but can make each other effortlessly happy." - Author: David Levithan

Quotes About Their Smile

"Yes, Soteria. I have. I assure you, my life has never been an easy one and you should be grateful every day you live that you cant imagine what kind of childhood I had. (Acheron)Im sorry, Ash. I didnt know. (Tory)Its easy to look at people and make quick judgments about them, their present, and their past, but youd be amazed at the pain and tears a single smile hides. What a person shows to the world is only one tiny facet of the iceberg hidden from sight. And more often than not, its lined with cracks and scars that go all the way to the foundations of their soul. (Acheron)" - Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
