Luce Irigaray Quotes

"The human in what it is objectively ever since its beginning is two, two who are different. Each part of what constitutes the unity of the human species corresponds to a proper being and a proper Being, to an identity of ones own. In order to carry out the destiny of humanity, the man-human and the woman-human each have to fulfill what they are and at the same time realize the unity that they constitute."

Anson Williams Quotes

Norman Davies Quotes

"One has to put aside the popular notion that language and culture are endlessly passed on from generation to generation, rather as if ‘Scottishness or ‘Englishness were essential constituents of some national genetic code.

Quotes About American Tourists

"The spectacular landscape circling the fortress supplies an essential backdrop, inspiring dreamers to wander its ruins for the sake of it; North American tourists, bound down by their practical world view, are able to place those members of the disintegrating tribes they may have seen in their travels among these once-living walls, unaware of the moral distance separating them, since only the semi-indigenous spirit of the South American can grasp the subtle differences." - Author: Ernesto Guevara

Quotes About Toothpaste

"Many of us spend long minutes in the aisle of the drugstore mulling over what toothpaste to buy. Yet most of us dont spend any time at all thinking about what species of animal we eat and why. Our choices as consumers drive an industry that kills ten billion* animals per year in the United States alone. If we choose to support this industry and the best reason we can come up with is because its the way things are, clearly something is amiss." - Author: Melanie Joy

"As with many other folk beliefs, feng-shui undoubtedly incorporates some scientifically correct observation or received wisdom based on direct experience of natural phenomena; but it needs to be dealt with skeptically as a credible system of thought.

Quotes About Orlant

"Laurent wasnt loved. Laurent wasnt liked.
