Quote Left If I should die, think only this of me: That there's some corner of a foreign field That is for ever England. There shall be In that rich earth a richer dust concealed; A dust whom England bore, shaped, made aware, Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam, A body of England's, breathing English air, Washed by the rivers, blest by suns of home. And think, this heart, all evil shed away, A pulse in the eternal mind, no less Gives somewhere back the thoughts by England given; Her sights and sounds; dreams happy as her day; And laughter, learnt of friends; and gentleness, In hearts at peace, under an English heaven.

Quote Left Is the human species a cancer on the planet?'

I don't know. What could he do? What would you tell him? To shrug. Quote Right
Quote Left I listened, motionless and still; And, as I mounted up the hill, The music in my heart I bore, Long after it was heard no more. Quote Right
Quote Left Vivisection: The Psychopathic Aspect.  Sadism is a very ugly word, which serves to define a very ugly psychopathy - a mental disease. Vivisectors have been known to accept with equanimity the allegation of being money grubbers - of doing cruel experiments only to gain money or a professorship. But we have never known a vivisector who bore with equanimity the allegation of being a sadist. They always reacted to all such allegations with frothing, like other psychopaths when they are confronted with the nature of their disorder.  If it is a mistake to believe that all vivisectors are sadists, it would be another mistake to believe that sadism is not rampant in the animal laboratories. It is. In fact, for men and women (more men, as a rule) who are affected by this grave psychopathy (mental malady), and on top of it are animal haters, what kind of remunerated occupation could be more gratifying than a job in a viviection laboratory?  Quote Right

Quote Left I have often been asked, Do not people bore you? I do not understand quite what that means. I suppose the calls of the stupid and curious, especially of newspaper reporters, are always inopportune. I also dislike people who try to talk down to my understanding. They are like people who when walking with you try to shorten their steps to suit yours; the hypocrisy in both cases is equally exasperating. Quote Right

Quote Left Universal manhood suffrage, by establishing an aristocracy of sex, imposes upon the women of this nation a more absolute and cruel despotism than monarchy; in that, woman finds a political master in her father, husband, brother, son. The aristocracies of the old world are based upon birth, wealth, refinement, education, nobility, brave deeds of chivalry; in this nation, on sex alone; exalting brute force above moral power, vice above virtue, ignorance above education, and the son above the mother who bore him. Quote Right

So for the hairsbreadth of time assigned to thee, live rationally, and part with life cheerfully, as drops the ripe olive, extolling the season that bore it and the tree that matured it. Quote Right

Member Quotes About Bore

Quote Left I have labored sore and suffered death, so now I rest and catch my breath. But I shall come and call right soon heaven and earth and hell to doom.

Então descanse, saboreie, comemore. Quote Right

Quote Left Wanting happiness is overrated, as it usually is the end goal. Wouldn't it be more entertaining, if people wished for calamity instead? By the time we are all happy, it'd be boring. With events at every corner, we'd never be bored. Maybe things are the way they are for a reason, and maybe it's okay to be selfish once in a while. We can't make everyone happy after all.
