There are perhaps no days of our childhood we lived so fully as those we spent with a favorite book.
~ Marcel Proust (July 10, 1871 - November 18, 1922)
We have a double standard, which is to say, a man can show how much he cares by being violent - see, he's jealous, he cares - a woman shows how much she cares by how much she's willing to be hurt; by how much she will take; how much she will endure;
~ Andrea Dworkin (September 26, 1946 - April 09, 2005)
You're a religious man, ... You believe in God and life after death. I also believe. When we come to the other world and meet the millions of Jews who died in the camps and they ask us, 'What have you done?' there will be many answers. You will say, 'I became a jeweler.' Another will say, 'I smuggled coffee and American cigarettes.' Another will say, 'I built houses.' But I will say, 'I didn't forget you.'
~ Simon Wiesenthal (December 31, 1908 - September 20, 2005)
