[The Men Laugh At The Witty Line, But It Is Not A Belly Laugh. Beasley's Mouth Is In A Wide Smile, But His Eyes Do Not Laugh, For There Is Little Reason For Joy. And If Eyes Are Indeed Mirrors Of The Soul, Then They Reflect An Infinite Sadness. I Look Away, Afraid Of What Mine Might Reflect]

Joshua Rosenthal Quotes

"We can, and must, develop dialogue and relatedness with our body because its talking to us all the time. And please remember, your body loves you. It does everything it can to keep you alive and functioning. You can feed it garbage, and it will take it and digest it for you. You can deprive it of sleep, but still it gets you up and running next morning. You can drink too much alcohol, and it will eliminate it from your system. It loves you unconditionally and does its best to allow you to live the life you came here for. The real issue in this relationship is not whether your body loves you, but whether you love your body. In any relationship, if one partner is loving, faithful and supportive, its easy for the other to take that person for granted. Thats what most of us do with our bodies. It is time for you to shift this, and working to understand your cravings is one of the best places to begin. Then you can build a mutually loving relationship with your own body."

Quotes About Progressives

Quotes About Science Technology And Society

"An eternal question about children is, how should we educate them? Politicians and educators consider more school days in a year, more science and math, the use of computers and other technology in the classroom, more exams and tests, more certification for teachers, and less money for art. All of these responses come from the place where we want to make the child into the best adult possible, not in the ancient Greek sense of virtuous and wise, but in the sense of one who is an efficient part of the machinery of society. But on all these counts, soul is neglected." - Author: Thomas Moore

Quotes About Focusing On Myself

"Yet early on in the marriage I found myself -- despite all my self-promises -- drifting into the role of wife: focusing on the renovations of the apartment, doing silly little domestic things instead of writing, using the wife role as cop-out from my work, my work which had always involved me in so much controversy and which some part of me longed to retreat from.... Even when I was forty-seven, full of my own power, my own identity, something in me wanted to escape from the fray and dwindle into a wife. It seemed to comfy, so safe." - Author: Erica Jong

Quotes About Journaling

"Were slammed at work and busy at home. Throw in an occasional outing with friends or significant others, and were ready for bed at 10:00 PM every night. Really ready for bed. Theres barely enough time in a day to cover all our mandatory obligations, so optional activities like novel writing, journaling, painting or playing music--things that feel great but no one will ever take us to task for shirking--are invariably left for another day.Which is how most of us become one day novelists. As in, One day, Id really like to write a novel. The problem is that that day never seems to come, and so were stuck." - Author: Chris Baty

Quotes About Obession

"Worship me, she says, worship the mistery of the bleeding goddess, and you do it. You stop at nothing. You lick it. You consume it. You digest it. She penetrates you.What next, David? A glass of her urine. How long before you would have begged for her feces? Im not against it because its unhygienic.Im not against it because its disgusting. Im against it because its falling in love. The only obession everybody wants: love. People think that in falling in love they make themselves whole? The Platonic union of souls? I think otherwise. I think youre whole before you begin. And the love fractures you. Youre whole, and then youre cracked open. She was a foreign body introduced into your wholeness. And for a year and a half you struggled to incorporate it. But youll never be whole until you expel it. You either get rid of it or incorporate it through self-distortion." - Author: Philip Roth
