[What I Remembered Most Clearly About This Jinja Road Was That On Portions Of It, For Reasons No One Could Explain, Butterflies Settled In Long Fluffy Tracts. There Might Be Eighty Feet Of Road Carpeted By White Butterflies, So Many Of Them That If You Drove Too Fast Your Tires Lost Their Grip, And Some People Lost Their Lives, Skidding On Butterflies.]

Quotes About Status On Facebook

"As for human contact, Id lost all appetite for it. Mankind has, as you may have noticed, become very inventive about devising new ways for people to avoid talking to each other and Id been taking full advantage of the most recent ones. I would always send a text message rather than speak to someone on the phone. Rather than meeting with any of my friends, I would post cheerful, ironically worded status updates on Facebook, to show them all what a busy life I was leading. And presumably people had been enjoying them, because Id got more than seventy friends on Facebook now, most of them complete strangers. But actual, face-to-face, lets-meet-for-a-coffee-and-catch-up sort of contact? I seemed to have forgotten what that was all about." - Author: Jonathan Coe

Quotes About Staying Committed To A Goal

"Can people of color be racist?" I reply, "The answer depends on your definition of racism." If one defines racism as racial prejudice, the answer is yes. People of color can and do have racial prejudices. However, if one defines racism as a system of advantage based on race, the answer is no. People of color are not racist because they do not systematically benefit from racism. And equally important, there is no systematic cultural and institutional support or sanction for the racial bigotry of people of color. In my view, reserving the term racist only for behaviors committed by whites in the context of a white-dominated society is a way of acknowledging the ever-present power differential afforded whites by the culture and institutions that make up the system of advantage and continue to reinforce notions of white superiority. (Using the same logic, I reserve the word sexist for men. Though women can and do have gender-based prejudices, only men systematically benefit from sexism.)" - Author: Paula S. Rothenberg

A form of beauty already achieved, without the achievement of which I might not even consent to live..." - Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Quotes About Marriage Love And Family

"Marriage," "mating," and "love" are socially constructed phenomena that have little or no transferable meaning outside any given culture. The examples weve noted of rampant ritualized group sex, mate-swapping, unrestrained casual affairs, and socially sanctioned sequential sex were all reported in cultures that anthropologists insist are monogamous simply because theyve determined that something they call "marriage" takes place there. No wonder so many insist that marriage, monogamy, and the nuclear family are human universals. With such all-encompassing interpretations of the concepts, even the prairie vole, who "sleeps with anyone," would qualify." - Author: Christopher Ryan
