"We are never so free as when we own our sacred serfdom..."

Stanley McChrystal Quotes

"From the first, I realized that being organized was the key to real compassion. There was a natural tendency for Annie, me, and other key leaders to flock to the bedsides of injured paratroopers or spend time with grieving, frightened family members. But organizing and focusing the paratroopers and spouses of the battalion allowed us to have a greater impact."

Mark Barrowcliffe Quotes

"I was aware that he was laughing at me, but I told myself I didnt care what other people thought and would dress how I liked. Of course, like many self-consciously wacky people, I was in fact paralyzed by fear of the opinions of others and made the effort to appear as the maddest of the mad headbangers just in case anyone had the slightest lingering doubt as to the depth of my devotion. In fact, I think my disguise felt so fragile I couldnt allow it a single crack. If I did it might fall to bits and leave the real me shrivelling under the evaluating gaze of my peer group."

Quotes About Painful Words

"If we really saw war, what war does to young minds and bodies, it would be impossible to embrace the myth of war. If we had to stand over the mangled corpses of schoolchildren killed in Afghanistan and listen to the wails of their parents, we would not be able to repeat clichés we use to justify war. This is why war is carefully sanitized. This is why we are given wars perverse and dark thrill but are spared from seeing wars consequences. The mythic visions of war keep it heroic and entertaining…The wounded, the crippled, and the dead are, in this great charade, swiftly carted offstage. They are wars refuse. We do not see them. We do not hear them. They are doomed, like wandering spirits, to float around the edges of our consciousness, ignored, even reviled. The message they tell is too painful for us to hear. We prefer to celebrate ourselves and our nation by imbibing the myths of glory, honor, patriotism, and heroism, words that in combat become empty and meaningless." - Author: Chris Hedges

Quotes About Travelling

"[…] One night, five men from Nuweiba were travelling past the mountain, and one of them fell behind, and was separated from his companions. As the man – whom we will call Ahmed – wandered in the darkness, wondering where his friends had gone, a beautiful woman suddenly appeared out of the night and blocked his path. She gave him a choice: ‘Sex, or be eaten! It was not a difficult decision. As the Bedouins put it, ‘the man did what a man has to do. […]" - Author: Robert W. Lebling

Quotes About Dustiness

"Sorry, but I have to be who I am. Everyone else is taken... So be your self! Speak your truth - if there are people around you who tempt you with non-existence blast through that and give them the full glory of who you are. Do not withhold yourself from the world. Do not piss on the incandescent gift of your existence. Do not drown yourself in the petty fog and dustiness of other peoples ancient superstitions, unbeliefs, aggressions, culture and crap! No! Be a flare! We were born that way. Born perfectly happy being inconvenient to our parents. We shit, piss, cry, wake up at night, throw up on their shoulders, scream... We are, in essence, in our humanity, perfectly comfortable with inconveniencing others. Thats how were born, how we grow and develop. I choose to inconvenience the irrational." - Author: Stefan Molyneux

Quotes About Ranu

"Unë dua të jetoj, dhe jetoj qoftë edhe në kundërshtim me logjikën e gjërave. Le të mos kem fort besim në rregullat e pranuara nga të gjithë, por më pëlqejnë gjethet e sapoçelura, e dua qiellin e kaltër; ndodh të më pëlqejë dikush pa ndonjë shkak. Më pëlqen heroizmi i njerëzve, tek i cili mbase nuk beson më prej kohësh." - Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Quotes About Hurting The One You Love

"When two people love each other as we do, no one can come between them, no one," I said, amazed at the words I was uttering without preparation. "Lovers like us, because they know that nothing can destroy their love, even on the worst days, even when they are heedlessly hurting each other in the cruelest , most deceitful ways, still carry in their hearts a consolation that never abandons them." (p.191)" - Author: Orhan Pamuk
