Frank Tannenbaum Quotes

"No more self-defeating device could be discovered than the one society has developed in dealing with the criminal. It proclaims his career in such loud and dramatic forms that both he and the community accept the judgment as a fixed description. He becomes conscious of himself as a criminal, and the community expects him to live up to his reputation, and will not credit him if he does not live up to it."

Joelle Charbonneau Quotes

"Almost all the United Commonwealth presidents have been female. It has been argued that women are less aggressive, more maternal, and thus more focused on the well-being of the countrys people. Less focused on politics or power."

Kate Moses Quotes

"Later, when I was a new mother, I recognized her somewhat awestruck fascination with me. When you are fully immersed in the daily care and quirks and habits of a small, dependent child, an older kid who is articulate, civilized, and capable of moving around in the world without getting itself killed can seem as supernatural as a wizard."

Quotes About Rir

"Non so. Io non capisco nulla di nulla della vita. E così strana…mi sento come se avessi passato tutta la mia esistenza in riva a uno stagno e dun tratto vedessi il mare. E mi sento mancare il respiro, ma sono al tempo stesso piena di esaltazione. Io non voglio morire, voglio vivere. Comincio ad avere un nuovo coraggio…mi sembra di essere uno di quei vecchi marinai che salpavano un tempo per mari sconosciuti. Sì, la mia anima anela allignoto." - Author: W. Somerset Maugham

Quotes About Great Monogamy

"We drove to the hotel and said goodbye. How hypocritical to go upstairs with a man you dont want to fuck, leave the one you do sitting there alone, and then, in a state of great excitement, fuck the one you dont want to fuck while pretending hes the one you do. Thats called fidelity. Thats called monogamy. Thats called civilization and its discontents." - Author: Erica Jong

Quotes About Sons Death

"From childhood I was compelled to concentrate attention upon myself. This caused me much suffering, but to my present view, it was a blessing in disguise for it has taught me to appreciate the inestimable value of introspection in the preservation of life, as well as a means of achievement. The pressure of occupation and the incessant stream of impressions pouring into our consciousness through all the gateways of knowledge make modern existence hazardous in many ways. Most persons are so absorbed in the contemplation of the outside world that they are wholly oblivious to what is passing on within themselves. The premature death of millions is primarily traceable to this cause. Even among those who exercise care, it is a common mistake to avoid imaginary, and ignore the real dangers. And what is true of an individual also applies, more or less, to a people as a whole." - Author: Nikola Tesla

Quotes About Unpredictability Of The Future

"The possible redemption from the predicament of irreversibility──of being unable to undo what one has done──is the faculty of forgiving. The remedy for unpredictability, for the chaotic uncertainty of the future, is contained in the faculty to make and keep promises. Both faculties depend upon plurality, on the presence and acting of others, for no man can forgive himself and no one can be bound by a promise made only to himself." - Author: Hannah Arendt

Quotes About Members Of Parliament

"I was to grow used to hearing, around New York, the annoying way in which people would say: Edward Said, such a suave and articulate and witty man, with the unspoken suffix for a Palestinian. It irritated him, too, naturally enough, but in my private opinion it strengthened him in his determination to be an ambassador or spokesman for those who lived in camps or under occupation (or both). He almost overdid the ambassadorial aspect if you ask me, being always just too faultlessly dressed and spiffily turned out. Fools often contrasted this attention to his tenue with his membership of the Palestine National Council, the then-parliament-in-exile of the people without a land. In fact, his taking part in this rather shambolic assembly was a kind of noblesse oblige: an assurance to his landsmen (and also to himself) that he had not allowed and never would allow himself to forget their plight. The downside of this noblesse was only to strike me much later on." - Author: Christopher Hitchens
