Valerie E Whiffen Quotes

"A large body of psychological research tells us something that many of us already know: girls and women place a lot of importance on their closest relationships. Our parents, relatives, romantic partners and spouses, children, and friends are central to our lives. We value our relationships with these people immensely, and we feel good about ourselves when we are able to create relationships with them that are warm, intimate, and loving. Our need to do so is healthy and adaptive. When our most intimate relationships are good, they protect us from becoming depressed. But when they are riddled with conflict and emotional insecurity, they actually increase our risk for depression."

Peter Arnett Quotes

"President Bush says he is concerned about the Iraqi people, but if Iraqi people are dying in numbers, then American policy will be challenged very strongly."

Fr James Groenings Quotes

"Christ has come into the world to lay out a garden wherein, amid splendor and abundance, there should thrive the violet of humanity, the myrtle of mortification, the rose of love, the lily of virginal souls, the laurel of confessors and the palm of martyrs."

Sura Hart Quotes

"Listening is an attitude of the heart, a genuine desire to be with another which both attracts and heals. (attr to J. Isham)"

Louise Penny Quotes

"Hed shoved his toque and mitts into the sleeve of his parka when hed come in the night before, and now, thrusting his right arm into the armhole, he hit the blockage. At a practiced shove the pompom of the toque crowned the cuff followed by his mitts, like a tiny birth."

Ananda K Coomaraswamy Quotes

"What I have sought is to understand what has been said."

Ross Douthat Quotes

"As a purely intellectual matter, nothing was suddenly discovered in the 1960s that contradicted the biblical witness on fornication, adultery, and homosexuality, or that established that Jesus hadnt really meant what he said about the indissolubility of marriage. . . . The difference was that in 1970 many more people wanted to believe these arguments because of the new sexual possibilities associated with the birth control pill."

Boris Vian Quotes

"Je passe le plus clair de mon temps à lobscurcir parce que la lumière me gêne"

Conrad Rudolph Quotes

"Bernard undoubtedly was truly concerned with the well-being of the poor ... but the approach here is again largely from a monastic standpoint. It is not just a question of art or the care of the poor. It is also a question of debunking the traditional social justification of excessive art — that it was somehow similar to almsgiving ... In the same way that art for the honor of God is not the business of the monk since the monk has already offered the most precious gift one can to God, so there is no need for a rationale which sees these lesser gifts as a worthy form of honor for a monk to convey, a form of honor which as a spiritual undertaking is ultimately contradictory to the dictates of charity."

Quotes About Religion

"Every time a crime was committed by a Muslim, that persons faith was mentioned, regardless of its relevance. When a crime is committed by a Christian, do they mention his religion? ... When a crime is committed by a black man, its mentioned in the first breath: An African American man was arrested today... But what about German Americans? Anglo Americans? A white man robs a convenience store and do we hear hes of Scottish descent? In no other instance is the ancestry mentioned." - Author: Dave Eggers

Quotes About Interpreting Data

"We do not realize how deeply our starting assumptions affect the way we go about looking for and interpreting the data we collect. We should recognize that nonhuman organisms need not meet every new definition of human language, tool use, mind, or consciousness in order to have versions of their own that are worthy of serious study. We have set ourselves too much apart, grasping for definitions that will distinguish man from all other life on the planet. We must rejoin the great stream of life from whence we arose and strive to see within it the seeds of all we are and all we may become." - Author: Sue Savage Rumbaugh

Quotes About Impending War

"We take pictures because we cant accept that everything passes, we cant accept that the repetition of a moment is an impossibility. We wage a monotonous war against our own impending deaths, against time that turns children into that other, lesser species: adults. We take pictures because we know we will forget. We will forget the week, the day, the hour. We will forget when we were happiest. We take pictures out of pride, a desire to have the best of ourselve preserved. We fear that we will die and others will not know we lived." - Author: Michelle Richmond

Quotes About Twisted Logic

"Most people prefer to think that their resentment is entirely the fault of the person they resent, and that twisted logic seems to make sense in their minds. But it makes no sense to me at all... But its a popular point of view. Probably because its so much easier. It relieves you of the burden of any and all self-examination.(Nathan to Nat)" - Author: Catherine Ryan Hyde

I tried to hide my suddenly flaming cheeks by scraping away what was left of the cannolis, and replacing them with the contents of an upended bag of chocolate chip cookies.
