[We Are The Girls With Anxiety Disorders, Filled Appointment Books, Five-year Plans. We Take Ourselves Very, Very Seriously. We Are The Peacemakers, The Do-gooders, The Givers, The Savers. We Are On Time, Overly Prepared, Well Read, And Witty, Intellectually Curious, Always Moving … We Pride Ourselves On Getting As Little Sleep As Possible And Thrive On Self-deprivation. We Drink Coffee, A Lot Of It. We Are On Birth Control, Prozac, And Multivitamins … We Are Relentless, Judgmental With Ourselves, And Forgiving To Others. We Never Want To Be As Passive-aggressive Are Our Mothers, Never Want To Marry Men As Uninspired As Our Fathers … We Are The Daughters Of The Feminists Who Said, "You Can Be Anything," And We Heard, "You Have To Be Everything.]

Quotes About Getting Along Together

"Before the Wright brothers flew, flying was fantasy. Before the civil rights movement, people getting along together and the races being equal was a fantasy. Things change because we imagine a different world, a world that is not. And I think that imagination is one of the most important and defining aspects of human existence: our ability to imagine a world that is not." - Author: Brandon Sanderson

Quotes About Self Fulfillment

"A job is a vocation only if someone else calls you to do it for them rather than for yourself. And so our work can be a calling only if it is reimagined as a mission of service to something beyond merely our own interests. Thinking of work mainly as a means of self-fulfillment and self-realization slowly crushes a person." - Author: Timothy Keller

Quotes About Moving On After Someones Death

"The temporal immortality of the soul of man, that is to say, its eternal survival also after death, is not only in no way guaranteed, but this assumption in the first place will not do for us what we always tried to make it do. Is a riddle solved by the fact that I survive forever? Is this eternal life not as enigmatic as our present one? The solution of the riddle of life in space and time lies outside space and time." - Author: Ludwig Wittgenstein

Quotes About Gaius Julius Caesar

"It put him in mind of the grand death of Julius Caesar, stabbed by a throng of Roman senators and dying very decoratively, scarlet on marble, harmoniously framed by columns. Would that some great Sienese could bring himself to die in a like manner, allowing the Maestro to indulge in the scene on a local wall." - Author: Anne Fortier

Quotes About Adequately

"Why is love beyond all measure of other human possibilities so rich and such a sweet burden for the one who has been struck by it? Because we change ourselves into that which we love, and yet remain ourselves. Then we would like to thank the beloved, but find nothing that would do it adequately. We can only be thankful to ourselves. Love transforms gratitude into faithfulness to ourselves and into an unconditional faith in the Other. Thus love steadily expands its most intimate secret. Closeness here is existence in the greatest distance from the other- the distance that allows nothing to dissolve - but rather presents the "thou" in the transparent, but "incomprehensible" revelation of the "just there". That the presence of the other breaks into our own life - this is what no feeling can fully encompass. Human fate gives itself to human fate, and it is the task of pure love to keep this self-surrender as vital as on the first day." - Author: Martin Heidegger

Quotes About Imagining Love

"Like most girls, I want a lot. Fame and fortune. Equal rights. Shoes no one else has. But Id trade all that in for the perfect guy. (Dont tell me theres something wrong with that. I dont know of a single person who doesnt spend most of her time thinking about love.) Anyway, ever since I could think, I have been imagining and reimagining the exact sort of boy I want to love and who would love me back. Basically, I imagine someone who has all the good attributes of the male species and whose bad ones wouldnt ruin my life." - Author: Sarah Miller
