"On the Rolling Stones - You will walk out of the Amphitheatre after watching the Stones perform and suddenly the Chicago stockyards smell clean and good by comparison."

Jim Gorant Quotes

"Some of those reported legitimate pit bull attacks—the price of so many unsocialized, abused, and aggressively trained dogs popping up around the country—but many were the result of pit bull hysteria, in which almost any incident involving a dog was falsely reported as a pit bull attack. The breed, which had existed in some form for hundreds of years, didnt suddenly lose control. The dogs simply fell into the hands of many more people who had no interest in control."

Alex Bell Quotes

"Believe it or not, some of us have piercings and tattoos and dye our hair because we think it looks pretty, not for any deep sociological reason. This isnt an act of protest against cultural or social repression. Its not a grand, deliberately defiant gesture against capitalists or feminists or any other social group. Its not even the fashion equivalent to sticking two fingers up at the world. The boring truth of it, Gabriel, is that I dont dress like this to hurt my parents or draw attention to myself or make a statement. I just do it because I think it looks nice. Disappointed?"

"Attitude is 100% under your control – (yours to choose, use or lose, as they say)Happiness, fulfillment and satisfaction in a life ALWAYS and ONLY come as a consequence of some other activity.

Quotes About Aaron

"Madeleine saved herself when she was abducted. Taken while she was a scared woman, one whod once been veiwed as nothing more than weak and easily controlled, shed proven that she had the heart of a lion, that she had the spirit of a warrior, that her strength didnt exist only in her ability to fight, but in her ability to endure, in her ability to survive.Most importantly, through her strength and her bravery, Maddy had not only saved herself, but also Aaron: By opening her eyes and discovering that hidden deeply within the recesses of the executioners soul, there was goodness, there was compassion, there was love and there was honor; but above it all...deep within the infinite darkness...There was light." - Author: M.S.

Quotes About Nested

"God did not live in this church; these statues gave an image to nothingness. I was the supernatural in this cathedral. I was the only Supermortal thing that stood conscious under this roof! Loneliness. Loneliness to the point of madness. The cathedral crumbled in my vision; the saints listed and fell. Rats ate the Holy Eucharist and nested on the sills. A solitary rat with an enormous tail stood tugging and gnawing at the rotted altar cloth until the candlesticks fell and rolled on the slime-covered stones. And I remained standing. Untouched." - Author: Anne Rice

Quotes About Exchange Year

"And when they asked us where we were from, we exchanged glances and smiled with the shyness of child brides. They said, Africa? We nodded yes. What part of Africa? We smiled. Is it that part where vultures wait for famished children to die? We smiled. Where the life expectancy is thirty-five years? We smiled? Is is there where dissidents shove AK-47s between womens legs? We smiled. Where people run about naked? We smiled. That part where they massacred each other? We smiled. Is it where the old president rigged the election and people were tortured and killed and a whole bunch of them put in prison and all, there where they are dying of cholera - oh my God, yes, weve seen your country; its been on the news." - Author: NoViolet Bulawayo
