Danielle Jordan Quotes

"No one is ever going to give you something that theyre too afraid to even claim for themselves. People dont know themselves, so they dont like to see other people figure it out and live their lives in ways that they themselves cannot. So they try to box you in, and limit you, so they dont feel inadequate. But you dont need their approval- the only person who ever, ever limits you is yourself."

Quotes About Funny Dislike

"Youve come to give me a piece of your mind, I repeated, looking at her. "You know that phrase is really beautiful. The mind is the most powerful thing in the body, you know, whatever the mind believes, the body can achieve. So to give someone a piece of it...well, thank you, Elizabeth. Funny how people are always intent on giving it to the people they dislike when it really should be for the ones they love. Theres another funny thing. But a piece of your mind...what a gift that would be." I looped the last stalk and formed a chain. "Ill give you a daisy chain in return for a piece of your mind." I slid the bracelet onto her arm.She sat on the grass. Didnt move, didnt say anything, just looked at her daisy chain. Then she smiled and when she spoke her voice was soft.

Quotes About Repeating The Past

"It is a highly valued function of society to prevent changes in the rules of the many games it embraces... Deviancy, however, is the very essence of culture. Whoever merely follows the script, merely repeating the past, is culturally impoverished. There are variations in the quality of deviation; not all divergence from the past is culturally significant. Any attempt to vary from the past in such a way as to cut the past off, causing it to be forgotten, has little cultural importance. Greater significance attaches to those variations that bring the tradition into view in a new way, allowing the familiar to be seen as unfamiliar, as requiring a new appraisal of all that we have been- and therefore all that we are. Cultural deviation does not return us to the past, but continues what was begun but not finished in the past... Properly speaking, a culture does not have a tradition; it is a tradition." - Author: James P. Carse
