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."

Thomas Stephen Szasz Quotes

"The concept of disease is fast replacing the concept of responsibility. With increasing zeal Americans use and interpret the assertion "I am sick" as equivalent to the assertion "I am not responsible": Smokers say they are not responsible for smoking, drinkers that they are not responsible for drinking, gamblers that they are not responsible for gambling, and mothers who murder their infants that they are not responsible for killing. To prove their point — and to capitalize on their self-destructive and destructive behavior — smokers, drinkers, gamblers, and insanity acquitees are suing tobacco companies, liquor companies, gambling casinos, and physicians."

Quotes About Marriage Ending

"In marriage we have a duty to God, our spuses, the world, and future generations. But we are sinners. A husband and wife need to acknowledge that when the Bible speaks of fools, it is not just speaking about other people, but about them as well. Even the wisest among us has moments of folly. So God gives us spouses to serve as wise friends by praying with and for us, attending church with us, speaking truth, and providing Scripture along with good books and online classes, lectures, and sermons to nourish fruitfulness in our lives." - Author: Mark Driscoll

"Writers in what we now call the Middle English period (late twelfth century to 1485) did not necessarily always write in English.

Quotes About Sentimenti

"... le prime cose che Hélène percepiva nella gente erano la mediocrità, la meschinità, la vigliaccheria, la gelosia, linsicurezza, la paura; forse perché quei sentimenti erano presenti in lei, li individuava subito negli altri. Antoine invece era portato ad attribuire al prossimo intenzioni nobili, motivazioni di valore, ideali, come se non avesse mai sollevato il coperchio di unanima per scoprire fino a che punto puzzava e brulicava di vermi." - Author: Éric Emmanuel Schmitt

Quotes About The Roman Empire

"When Edward Gibbon was writing about the fall of the Roman Empire in the late 18th century, he could argue that transportation hadnt changed since ancient times. An imperial messenger on the Roman roads could get from Rome to London even faster in A.D. 100 than in 1750. But by 1850, and even more obviously today, all of that has changed." - Author: Walter Russell Mead

Quotes About Going On With Life

"All this emphasis on youth - I dont buy it. Listen, I know what a misery being young can be, so dont tell me its so great. All these kids who came to me with their struggles, their strife, their feelings of inadequacy, their sense that life was miserable, so bad they wanted to kill themselves... and in addition to all the miseries, the young are not wise. They have very little understanding about life. Who wants to live everyday when you dont know whats going on? When people are manipulating you, telling you to buy this perfume and youll be beautiful, or this pair of jeans and youll be sexy - and you believe them! Its such nonsense." - Author: Morrie Schwartz

Quotes About Companionship

"For a time, I was quite literally at loss as to what to do with myself. For more than half a century I had looked after Suleiman.My daily existence had been shaped by his needs, his companionship. Now I was free to do as I wished, but I found the freedom illusory, for what I wished for the most had been taken from me. They say, find a purpose in your life and live it. But, sometimes, it is only after you have lived that you recognize your life had a purpose, and likely one you never had in mind. And now that I had fulfilled mine, I felt aimless and adrift." - Author: Khaled Hosseini
