Women are tough and rather coarse. They were built for the raw, crude work of bearing children. You'd be amazed at what they can do when they divert that baby-hatching energy into some other enterprise.

Politics is the science of domination, and people in the process of enlargement and illumination are notoriously difficult to control. Therefore, to protect its vested interests, politics usurped religion a long time ago. Kings bought off priests with land and adornments. Together, they drained the ponds and replaced them with fish tanks. The walls of the tanks were constructed of ignorance and superstition, held together with fear. They called the tanks "synagogues" or "churches" or "mosques."

To specialize is to brush one tooth. When a person specializes he channels all of his energies through one narrow conduit; he knows one thing extremely well and is ignorant of almost everything else.
Well," Miss Honey said, "it's only a guess, but here's what I think. While you were in my class you had nothing to do, nothing to make you struggle. Your fairly enormous brain was going crazy with frustration. It was bubbling and boiling away like mad inside your head. There was tremendous energy bottled up in there with nowhere to do, and somehow or other you were able to shoot that energy out through your eyes and make objects move.

We will never be the same again. But here's a little secret for you: no one is ever the same thing again after anything. You are never the same twice, and much of your unhappiness comes from trying to pretend that you are. Accept that you are different each day, and do so joyfully, recognizing it for the gift it is. Work within the desires and goals of the person you are currently, until you aren't that person anymore, and everything changes once again.
Everyone is the center of their own universe, okay. If you ever think anyone's staring at you and judging you - they're just thinking about what they're gonna have for dinner or the fact that whatever they're doing when they're watching you, they're worried about it. So just stop and think - it's not actually a million people staring at me and judging me, they're actually all just in their own heads, they're all the same, it's okay.

If you're having a bad day think about a pig. It's a noble animal but they give it garbage and then it's ham. So life isn't fair, but some days you're the garbage, and some days you're the pig. So keep kickin' ass.
Not everything is supposed to become something beautiful and long-lasting. Sometimes people come into your life to show you what is right and what is wrong, to show you who you can be, to teach you to love yourself, to make you feel better for a little while, or to just be someone to walk with at night and spill your life to. Not everyone is going to stay forever, and we still have to keep on going and thank them for what they've given us.

As the years pass, I am coming more and more to understand that it is the common, everyday blessings of our common everyday lives for which we should be particularly grateful. They are the things that fill our lives with comfort and our hearts with gladness - just the pure air to breathe and the strength to breathe it; just warmth shelter and home folks; just plain food that gives us strength; the bright sunshine on a cold day; and a cool breeze when the day is warm.

Let me ask each of you a question. Have you ever in your life been falsely accused of something? Ever had to sit there and take it and watch the proceedings and wait and wait and wait, all the while knowing you didn't do it? All you could do during such a process is to really maintain your dignity; isn't that correct? Knowing that you were innocent, but maintaining your dignity and remembering always that all you're left with after a crisis is your conduct during.

When someone leaves your life, those exits are not made equal. Some are beautiful and poetic and satisfying. Others are abrupt and unfair. But most are just unremarkable, unintentional, clumsy.

Because um, the mongoose has specialized acetylcholine receptors that make it impervious to venom and so they're known for killing snakes. Very surprisingly dangerous. You know, like Rikki-Tikki-Tavi? ... You know, not everything has to be a joke.

I've never been that wrong about someone before. So you can imagine how I felt: betrayed, hurt, embarrassed. You duped me so completely - made a fool out of me and destroyed the most important relationship in my life. And I'm not too proud to admit that I've carried that betrayal with me into every aspect of my life. You made me doubt and question everything. How could I ever trust my own judgement again when I had chosen to trust you?
