What The Quotes

What the Internet offers is this completely unfiltered transmission of thought to thought, of psyche to psyche, and whatever youre feeling, you can just sort of put it down and send it out there, and you can do it all in the confines of your room, without any actual contact.

In so doing, I resisted the descent into what the school counselors called low self-esteem. Self-esteem is the dark, distorted shadow of self-possession. Self-esteem gazes inward and wills the inner eye to like what it sees; self-possession looks inward only long enough to take a measure then looks outward at the world in search of a fitting place-and settles for no less.

— Karen Swallow Prior

Don't you remember how you once answered a question of mine? Me - I shall never forget your words. Those words of yours opened my eyes; they brought me the light of day. I asked you how the Germans could send Jewish children to die in the gas chambers. How, I asked, could they live with themselves after that? Was there really no judgement passed on them by man or God? And you said: Only one judgement is passed on the executioner - he ceases to be a human being. Through looking on his victim as less than human, he becomes his own executioner, he executes the human being inside himself. But the victim - no matter what the executioner does to kill him - remains a human being forever. Remember now?

— Vasily Grossman

Most investigators don't even know what the word means. You stop the cops from using informants and the only crimes they'd ever solve would be those by deranged postal workers who come to work once too often.

Romans 7:18 where he confesses, "For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh. For I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out." In verse 24 he goes so far as to call himself a "wretched man." If Paul made that confession in most churches today, the evangelegalists would run him out of the ministry. Paul is so disclosing of his own failings because he is a broken man trying to help other men find what he found in Jesus. Seeing Paul as arrogant because he tells his story is what the arrogant do, but men who have been laid low by Jesus Christ have an awesome story to relay and they don't care if it gets a bit messy.

— James MacDonald

In the Marines, I was stunned, absolutely stunned, at everything around me, at what the world looked like.

— John Naisbitt

My page was too white
My ink was too thin
The day wouldn't write
What the night pencilled in

— Leonard Cohen

I hesitate to say what the functions of the modern journalist may be, but I imagine that they do not exclude the intelligent anticipation of the facts even before they occur.

— George Curzon, 1st Marquess Curzon Of Kedleston

When you read enough stories about people who have been through different levels of trauma, and it doesn't matter what the history is, trauma is trauma, there's always this freeing of the spirit.

— Matana Roberts

What the homosexual wants, and here he is neither willing to compromise nor morally required to compromise - is acceptance of homosexuality as a way of life fully on a par with heterosexuality.

My dad (Ken Griffey) would have bopped me on the head when I was a kid if I came home bragging about what I did on the field. He only wanted to know what the team did.

— Ken Griffey, Jr.

You know what the hardest thing is? What nobody wants to understand
is me. People want their memories of me to be my memories of me. But you know what? They're not.

— Hank Aaron
