This thought provoking quote is from author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia. Mr. Buscaglia died in 1998. When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on. And swing!
Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.
On the whole...kids are pretty lucky. They can find a penny on the sidewalk and feel rich. They can find a fossil-shaped rock and feel like Indiana Jones. They can find an anthill and feel like God.
When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on. And swing!
If you can find humor in anything, you can survive it.
A light heart lives longer.
I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don’t notice it.
Every problem has in it the seeds of its own solution. If you don’t have any problems, you don’t get any seeds.
—Norman Vincent Peale

People are pretty much alike. It’s only that our differences are more susceptible to definition than our similarities.
One of the things about equality is not just that you be treated equally to a man, but that you treat yourself equally to the way you treat a man.
To be successful, a woman has to be much better at her job than a man.
We ask justice, we ask equality, we ask that all civil and political rights that belong to the citizens of the United States be guaranteed to us and our daughters forever.

A natural response is to change the word “feminist” to a word with fewer stigmas attached. But inevitably the same thing will happen to that magical word. Part of the radical connotation of feminism is not due to the word, but to the action. The act of a woman standing up for herself is radical, whether she calls herself a feminist or not.
I used to go on college campuses 25 years ago and announce I was a feminist, and people thought it meant I believed in free love and was available for a quick hop in the sack. ... Now I go on college campuses and say I’m a feminist, and half of them think it means I’m a lesbian. How’d we get from there to here without passing “Go”?
Feminism is a recognition of the domination of men over women and attempts by women to end male privilege.... It is a theory, a method and a practice which seeks to transform human relations.
Feminism is the radical notion that women are human beings.
Feminism is the single most powerful social movement of our time, one that addresses every aspect of human and social life.
I myself have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is: I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat.
I became a feminist as an alternative to becoming a masochist.
A feminist is anyone who recognizes the equality and full humanity of women and men.
