Charles L Bailey Jr Quotes

"The Rochester group [of VOTF], however, was met with some concern as they found it hard to believe my account as it unfolded before them. I feel that some people have a hard time with the truths around us, not only the sexual abuse by priests, but all bad things. I call it chosen ignorance. This modified form of ignorance is found in people who, if confronted with certain truths realize that they have to accept them and thereby acknowledge evil, and that scares them. Opening up and letting the truth in might knock them off their perceived center. It is too hard, period."(VOTF - Voice of the Faithful - a Catholic group that wants to change the Church, keep the faith.)"

Quotes About Rushing Time

"My eyes shifted to the trickling river. Come spring, it would be ten times as wide and just as deep. On and on it went, rushing toward the distant horizon. Like time. Like life. Sometimes gently falling from one pool into the other, other times fast and cascading, and still other times narrowing into a funnel, a torrent of knots and waves." - Author: Lisa Tawn Bergren

Quotes About Domme

"...en ik koesterde en knuffelde het geheim tot ik van pure gelukzaligheid in een soort wakende slaap wegdommelde waarin ik allemaal beelden zag: "..." Die beelden hadden nergens iets mee te maken, behalve dan dat ze zo prachtig waren in al hun eenvoud en helderheid, zonder dat ze iets betekenden en zonder dat ze het een of andere verhaal te vertellen hadden, ze bestonden gewoon alsof ze altijd al hadden bestaan; de wereld zit al veel te vol met dingen die een begin en een eind hebben." - Author: Herman Koch

Quotes About Victorian Novels

"Because it is written by a nineteenth-century American, and because of its closeness to the twentieth century, The Portrait of a Lady foregoes Victorian affirmations. The price it pays, however (together with several twentieth-century novels) is that it eventually leaves the reader, along with its heroine, en Vair amid its self-reflections." - Author: Ian Gregor

Quotes About Democracy In America

"America truly is the best idea for a country that anyone has ever come up with so far. Not only because we value democracy and the rights of the individual, but because we are always our own most effective voice of descent....We must never mistake disagreement between Americans on political or moral issues to be an indication of their level of patriotism. If you dont like what I say or dont agree with where I stand on certain issues, then good. Im glad were in America, and dont have to oppress each other over it. Were not just a nation, were not an ethnicity. We are a dream of justice that people have had for a thousand years." - Author: Craig Ferguson

Quotes About Selfish People

"Our lives were short, and we never would have wanted to have them be shorter. Sometimes perspective comes far too late. You cannot trust yourself. You think you can, but you cant. Not because you are selfish. You cannot live for anyone elses sake. As much as you may want to, you cant stay alive just because other people want you alive. You cannot stay alive for your parents. You cannot stay alive for your friends. And you have no responsibility to stay alive for them. You have no responsibility to anyone but yourself to live." - Author: David Levithan
