Lawrence N Powell Quotes

"Public truth telling is a form of recovery, especially when combined with social action. Sharing traumatic experiences with others enables victims to reconstruct repressed memory, mourn loss, and master helplessness, which is traumas essential insult. And, by facilitating reconnection to ordinary life, the public testimony helps survivors restore basic trust in a just world and overcome feelings of isolation. But the talking cure is predicated on the existence of a community willing to bear witness. Recovery can take place only within the context of relationships, write Judith Herman. It cannot occur in isolation."

Vincent Eri Quotes

"True marriage enabled the two partners to stand upright as properly formed human beings. Through the union, each partner acquired his missing leg. For anyone who had the experience of using two legs, life wasnt worth living if one had to manage on a single one."

Anna Paszkiewicz Quotes

"The faded glittering in his eyes is like a falling star on a dull autumns day."

Duo Duo Quotes

"In the process, what must be spoken meets what cannot be said. Each word is a catalyst, requiring the writer to break out forcefully from another story, from the primitive camp where history, society, and politics converge, to touch upon that what and that who. At that touch, one finds the unlimited boundaries of man, concealed by words."

Eknath Easwaran Quotes

"Judged by the normal standards of human affairs, the lives of men and women of God may look overburdened with suffering, and even inconclusive."

Barry Mann Quotes

Quotes About Daye

"This Room"The room I entered was a dream of this room.Surely all those feet on the sofa were mine.The oval portraitof a dog was me at an early age.Something shimmers, something is hushed up.We had macaroni for lunch every dayexcept Sunday, when a small quail was inducedto be served to us. Why do I tell you these things?You are not even here." - Author: John Ashbery

Quotes About Bring It On Life

Quotes About How I Feel Right Now

"Although I was fine, that night didnt sit well with me for the rest of our trip. Something had, in the end, been taken from me, something very small. A strange kind of dignity, maybe. In its place remained an alien resentment. I know it seems daft, really, but how does one get justice for not having been mugged? Its a real question, although not a high priority. For what its worth, I learned this much - even commonplace violence and social dangers cant give me a fair shake. Discrimination feels like discrimination, even when its for the best. My generation has been so socialized into our rights and so schooled away from discriminations of any kind, I didnt know how to be thankful. Thank you for stereotyping me. Thanks for excluding me from your violence, although Im a relatively affluent tourist. Gratitude for being spared is something of a double bind. I wanted to lose. I wanted to lose like everybody else in order to keep that bit of dignity." - Author: Ryan Knighton

Quotes About Stone Heart

"With memories of gravestones, of combing fingers through tangled hair, I wonder too ... If the rent in the canvas of our life backdrop, the losses that puncture our world, and our own emptiness, might actually become places to see.To see through to God.That which tears open our souls, those holes which splatter sight, they actually become the thin, open places to see through the mess of this place to the heart aching beauty beyond. To him. To the god whom we endlessly crave.But how? How do we choose to allow the holes to become seeing through to collect places? How do I give up resentment for gratitude, anger for spilling joy, so focus for God communion. To fully live to fully live grace enjoy with all that is beauty internal it is possible" - Author: Ann Voscamp

Quotes About Days Gone By

"Anyway, those things would not have lasted long.The experience of the years shows it to me.But Destiny arrived in some haste and stopped them.The beautiful life was brief.But how potent were the perfumes,On how splendid a bed we lay,To what sensual delight we gave our bodies.An echo of the days of pleasure,An echo of the days drew near me,A little of the fire of the youth of both of us,Again I took in my hands a letter,And I read and reread till the light was gone.And melancholy, I came out on the balconyCame out to change my thoughts at least by looking atA little of the city that I loved,A little movement on the street and in the shops.Translated by Rae Dalven" - Author: C.P. Cavafy

Quotes About Young Love Lasting

"You cant go back home to your family, back home to your childhood, back home to romantic love, back home to a young mans dreams of glory and of fame, back home to exile, to escape to Europe and some foreign land, back home to lyricism, to singing just for singings sake, back home to aestheticism, to ones youthful idea of the artist and the all-sufficiency of art and beauty and love, back home to the ivory tower, back home to places in the country, to the cottage in Bermude, away from all the strife and conflict of the world, back home to the father you have lost and have been looking for, back home to someone who can help you, save you, ease the burden for you, back home to the old forms and systems of things which once seemed everlasting but which are changing all the time--back home to the escapes of Time and Memory." - Author: Thomas Wolfe

Quotes About Birth Mothers

"Only a woman can carry in her body an eternal being which bears the very image of God. Only she is the recipient of the miracle of life. Only a woman can conceive and nurture this life using her own flesh and blood, and then deliver a living soul into the world. God has bestowed upon her alone a genuine miracle — the creation of life, and the fusing of an eternal soul with mortal flesh. This fact alone establishes the glory of motherhood.Despite the most creative plans of humanist scientists and lawmakers to redefine the sexes, no man will ever conceive and give birth to a child. The fruitful womb is a holy gift given by God to women alone. This is one reason why the office of wife and mother is the highest calling to which a woman can aspire.This is the reason why nations that fear the Lord esteem and protect mothers. They glory in the distinctions between men and women, and attempt to build cultures in which motherhood is honored and protected." - Author: Douglas W. Phillips

Quotes About Commonwealth

"If the USA doesnt start learning how to put personal egos aside for the sustainability of a nation, then these "mighty" United States will be no better than the politically divided commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Where progress is slowed because each party thinks any idea from the other party must be stupid or without validity and Independence has become a distant dream squashed by corruption. I suggest politicians go back to kindergarten to learn the basics in decent humanity. The notions of sharing and respect obviously didnt stick the first time." - Author: Cristina Marrero

Quotes About Uncertainty Of Death

"And she knew she was not sure, she would never be sure, because uncertainty is the essence of the human condition, and death is the one barrier beyond which we cannot see. There is no hope but faith, no knowledge but the acceptance of ignorance.Yet still she hoped that one day she would know." - Author: Jan Siegel

Quotes About Hysterical Life

"Given my antipathy for the paparazzi, she thinks its hysterical that Im so attached to my cameras. But to me, what I do is the anti-paparazzi. TMZsters want to capture surface. If a pictures in focus, its great. My goal is to capture what the surface is hiding. Theres a story behind every face, every landscape, every still life. Theres a soul in every subject, and when my camera and I are really speaking, really working together properly, we can capture it." - Author: Hilary Duff
