Lenora Crichlow Quotes

"I dont really follow fashion exactly, but Ive always been very interested in the way that you present yourself as an expression of yourself, so thats my idea of fashion and style from a personal point of view."

Greg Gutfeld Quotes

"The joy of hate reflects people who get off pretending to hate something, or hate you, in order to score political points. I call them the tolerati - you know, a group of people who claim to be tolerant, except when they run into someone who disagrees with them."

Stevenson Alexa Quotes

"The ending shouldnt determine the meaning of anything, a story or a life. Logically, I dont think it can--didnt Heidegger say something to that effect? That the meaning of all our moments cannot be contingent upon an end-point over which we have no control? That if we are happy right now, that means something, even if we die tomorrow? Narrative integrity is overrated. I dont need to know that the story of my life has a happy ending to enjoy it. A good thing, too, because I hear all the characters die in the end."

Quotes About Shioni

"So were getting close to suggesting that camp is both the opposite of cool and a refinement of it. Camp and cool both have an element of not-caring, of disdain for the ordinary. The difference is that cool implies a lack of conscious effort, whereas camp is about putting everything youve got into it. Either you love something too much (much more than its "worth", so the stereotypical anorak-wearing Doctor Who fan and the Barry Manilow cultist are both manifestations of this, at least to the outside world), or youre given to going over the top. Or you do both at once, in many cases. Both phenomena are examples of people fashioning an identity for themselves, and if youre reading this book then you must know people like that. Cool is not caring, camp is actively defiant." - Author: Tat Wood

Quotes About Wetenschap

"Volgens sommige wetenschappers zou een man tweemaal zo vaak aan voetbal dan aan seks denken. [...] Maar dat zegt natuurlijk niets over de hersenkronkels van de sportfanaat doch alles over het belabberde niveau van de wetenschap." - Author: Dimitri Verhulst

Quotes About Two Facedness

"Culturally, I have always been part of the proletariat. I lived side by side with the sons of glassblowers, fishermen and smugglers. The stories they told were shaper satires about the hypocrisy of authority and the middle classes, the two-facedness of teachers and lawyers and politicians. I was born politicized." - Author: Dario Fo

Quotes About San Francisco Streets

"Yes, Marcos is gay. Marcos is gay in San Francisco, black in South Africa, an Asian in Europe, a Chicano in San Ysidro, an anarchist in Spain, a Palestinian in Israel, a Mayan Indian in the streets of San Cristobal, a Jew in Germany, a Gypsy in Poland, a Mohawk in Quebec, a pacifist in Bosnia, a single woman on the Metro at 10pm, a peasant without land, a gang member in the slums, an unemployed worker, an unhappy student and, of course, a Zapatista in the mountains. Marcos is all the exploited, marginalised, oppressed minorities resisting and saying `Enough. He is every minority who is now beginning to speak and every majority that must shut up and listen. He is every untolerated group searching for a way to speak. Everything that makes power and the good consciences of those in power uncomfortable -- this is Marcos." - Author: Subcomandante Marcos

Quotes About Organized

"Women: I liked the colors of their clothing; the way they walked; the cruelty in some faces; now and then the almost pure beauty in another face, totally and enchantingly female. They had it over us: they planned much better and were better organized. While men were watching professional football or drinking beer or bowling, they, the women, were thinking about us, concentrating, studying, deciding - whether to accept us, discard us, exchange us, kill us or whether simply to leave us. In the end it hardly mattered; no matter what they did, we ended up lonely and insane." - Author: Charles Bukowski

Quotes About Ganesh

"And your students," Sato demanded, "dont find it unnerving that Masons meditate with skulls andscythes?""No more unnerving than Christians praying at the feet of a man nailed to a cross, or Hindus chanting infront of a four-armed elephant named Ganesh. Misunderstanding a cultures symbols is a common root ofprejudice" - Author: Dan Brown

Quotes About Tsunami

"On April 18, 1906, when that earthquake hit San Francisco and took David from her, Vivien began to speak the language of grief. She understood that grief is not neat and orderly; it does not follow any rules. Time does not heal it. Rather, time insists on passing, and as it does, grief changes but does not go away. Sometimes she could actually visualize her grief. It was a wave, a tsunami that came unexpectedly and swept her away. She could see it, a wall of pain that had grabbed hold of her and pulled her under. Some days, she could reach the air and breathe in huge comforting gulps. Some days she barely broke the surface, and still, after all this time, some days it consumed her and she wondered if there was any way free of it." - Author: Ann Hood

Quotes About Life Love Betrayal

"Trying to live in the past didnt work for me, and its only now that I fully realize Im incredibly lucky it didnt. Because it would have been all too sad to miss out on right now. That would have turned the past into a fraud. It would have meant all my happy memories were a lie. It would have meant all that time and all that love was a waste, leading up to a wasted future. It would have been the ultimate betrayal of everything I thought my whole life was about and everyone I cared about. All the people who loved me, in all the times and places of my life—all the people who made a lover out of me—they would have all been wrong about me. And it could have happened easily, just like that. Its scary to think of how I could have gotten stuck pining for the past. I was lucky to get a second chance. I thought I was too late, but it turns out I was just in time." - Author: Rob Sheffield

Quotes About Beach And Love

"You asked me if I believed in magic, and I said yes, and thats how. You just step out, start pulling your life out of the air. You make friends, you find work you really like doing, you find places. You find diners and Laundromats. You find beaches. You find a junk car and drive it for a month, then lave it beside the road. You find someone to fall in love with you. You make it all up as you go. Or, you know, maybe it makes you up." - Author: Brad Barkley
