[What Sets Science And The Law Apart From Religion Is That Nothing Is Expected To Be Taken On Faith. We're Encouraged To Ask Whether The Evidence Actually Supports What We're Being Told - Or What We Grew Up Believing - And We're Allowed To Ask Whether We're Hearing All The Evidence Or Just Some Small Prejudicial Part Of It. If Our Beliefs Aren't Supported By The Evidence, Then We're Encouraged To Alter Our Beliefs.]

Quotes About Advanced

"Sewers are necessary to guarantee the wholesomeness of palaces, according to the Fathers of the Church. And it has often been remarked that the necessity exists of sacrificing one part of the female sex in order to save the other and prevent worse troubles. One of the arguments in support of slavery, advanced by the American supporters of the institution, was that the Southern whites, being all freed from servile duties, could maintain the most democratic and refined relations among themselves; in the same way, a caste of shameless women allows the honest woman to be treated with the most chivalrous respect. The prostitute is a scapegoat; man vents his turpitude upon her, and he rejects her. Whether she is put legally under police supervision or works illegally in secret, she is in any case treated as a pariah." - Author: Simone de Beauvoir

Quotes About 323

"We still (sometimes) remember that we cannot be free if our minds and voices are controlled by someone else. But we have neglected to understand that we cannot be free if our food and its sources are controlled by someone else. The condition of the passive consumer of food is not a democratic condition. One reason to eat responsibly is to live free. (pg. 323, The Pleasures of Eating)" - Author: Wendell Berry

Quotes About Acquit

"Every person of intelligence should be able to use his mother tongue correctly. It only requires a little pains, a little care, a little study to enable one to do so, and the recompense is great.Consider the contrast between the well-bred, polite man who knows how to choose and use his words correctly and the underbred, vulgar boor, whose language grates upon the ear and jars the sensitiveness of the finer feelings. The blunders of the latter, his infringement of all the canons of grammar, his absurdities and monstrosities of language , make his very presence a pain, and one is glad to escape from his company.The proper grammatical formation of the English language , so that one may acquit himself as a correct conversationalist in the best society or be able to write and express his thoughts and ideas upon paper in the right manner, may be acquired in a few lessons." - Author: Joseph Devlin

Quotes About Holes In Life

"We are focusing on the small details and hiding the misery in the world. Look at the smoker and we miss global warming, war, and the crap we eat--not the bad guys but smoking. I smoke and they talk about cancer, I eat and they talk about cholesterol, I make love, its AIDS. Before AIDS and cholesterol and cancer theres the pleasure of making love and eating and smoking. I have to die someday, so if the thing that gave me pleasure all of my life kills me instead of me going under a truck, thats fine. Besides, why should I live so that when I die I give fresh meat to the worms? I hope that I am rotted and they dont want to eat me. F@#$ck the worms." - Author: Marjane Satrapi

Quotes About Decorum

"As Sokrates tells it, your story begins the moment Eros enters you. That incursion is the biggest risk of your life. How you handle it is an index of the quality, wisdom, and decorum of the things inside you. As you handle it you come into contact with what is inside you, in a sudden and startling way. You perceive what you are, what you lack, what you could be." - Author: Anne Carson
