God is not in need of anything, but all things are in need of him.
Here's what's not beautiful about it: from here, you can't see the rust or the cracked paint or whatever, but you can tell what the place really is. You see how fake it all is. it's not even hard enough to be made out of plastic. It's a paper town. I mean look at it, Q: look at all those cul-de-sacs, those streets that turn in on themselves, all the houses that were built to fall apart. All those paper people living in their paper houses, burning the future to stay warm. All the paper kids drinking beer some bum bought for them at the paper convenience store. Everyone demented with the mania of owning things. All the things paper-thin and paper-frail. And all the people, too. I've lived here for eighteen years and I have never once in my life come across anyone who cares about anything that matters.
John Greenleaf Whittier
Vainly the fowler's eye
Might mark thy distant flight to do thee wrong,
As, darkly painted on the crimson sky,
Thy figure floats along.
William Cullen Bryant
The prolonged slavery of women is the darkest page in human history.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton
Make the world better.
Let us rise in the moral power of womanhood; and give utterance to the voice of outraged mercy, and insulted justice, and eternal truth, and mighty love and holy freedom.
Maria Weston Chapman
It's only a thought, and a thought can be changed.
What is defeat? Nothing but education. Nothing but the first step to something better.
Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them.
I have never known a man who was sensual in his youth, who was high-minded when old.
Old men should have more care to end life well than to live long.
