#1. All that is needed for the majority of labors to go well is a healthy, pregnant woman who has loving support in labor, self-confidence , and attendants with infinite patience. - Author: Sheila Kitzinger
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Kitzinger
#2. In their quest for a life without failure, suffering, or doubt, that is what they achieve: a life empty of all those things that make a human life meaningful. - Author: Sheila Heti
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Heti
#3. I hadn't realized until this week that in [Moses'] youth he killed a man, an Egyptian, and buried him under some sandI used to worry that I wasn't enough like Jesus, but yesterday I remembered who was my king; a man who, when God addressed him and told him to lead the people out of Egypt, said, 'But I'm not a good talker! Couldn't you ask my brother instead?' So it should not be so hard to come at this life with a bit of honesty. I don't need to be great like the leader of the Christian people. I can be a bumbling, murderous coward like the King of the Jews. - Author: Sheila Heti
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Heti
#4. Is it true, then, Mayor?" Grandmother Miss Lacy Thornton warbled from the end of the counter. "Is Jesse Tatum officially dead?"
"Dead is such an unflattering term," he said, sliding onto his stool. "I prefer to think of Jesse as ... passe."
The Azalea Women gasped.
"What's passe mean?" Tinks Williams asked the Colonel, his voice low.
"Dead," the Colonel said, refilling Tink's iced tea. - Author: Sheila Turnage
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Turnage
#5. I'd never before wanted to uncover all the molecules of shit that were such a part of my deepest being which, once released, would smell forever of the shit that I was, and which nothing--not exile, not fame, could ever disappear. But I threw the shit and the trash and the sand, and for years and years I just threw it. And I began to light up my soul with scenes. I made what I could with what I had. And I finally became a real girl. - Author: Sheila Heti
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Heti
#6. ...the greatest barrier to intimacy is fear -- fear of being known, fear of being rejected, fear of facing the truth about ourselves...

...We are afraid to be known because at some deep level we fear that the truth about us, when out in the open and reflected back to us through someone else's eyes, will be shocking to ourselves. - Author: Sheila Walsh
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Walsh
#7. America, I am not ignoring you. - Author: Sheila Jackson Lee

Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Walsh
#10. I studied art history and philosophy and took economics and political science classes. I just took whatever I wanted and I didn't worry about grades and I read and learned a lot, and I didn't have much of a social life, so it was deeply absorbing. - Author: Sheila Heti
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Heti
#11. Pornography is not egalitarian and gender-free. It is predicated upon the inequality of women and is the propaganda that makes that inequality sexy. For women to find passive, objectified men sexy in large enough numbers to make a pornography industry based upon such images viable, would require the reconstruction of women's sexuality into a ruling-class sexuality. In an egalitarian society objectification would not exist and therefore the particular buzz provided by pornography, the excitement of eroticised dominance for the ruling class, would be unimaginable. - Author: Sheila Jeffreys
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Jeffreys
#12. One of the most awesome things about sports, particularly team sports, is that everything you need to do to be successful on the playing field carries over directly into life. In a team sport you have to learn how to work together, to set goals, and then work toward those goals in a productive way. You learn to be responsible and you learn how to not only depend on others, but also be independent so you can support others. - Author: Sheila Cornell-Douty
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Cornell-Douty
#13. Women exercise agency in order to survive the power relations and oppressive circumstances in which they find themselves. The theoretical task, Miriam argues, is for radical feminist theory to 'theorize freedom in terms of women's collective political agency (power to): this task requires an understanding that freedom is not negotiating within a situation taken as inevitable, but rather, a capacity to radically transform and/or determine the situation itself'. - Author: Sheila Jeffreys
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Jeffreys
#14. The American polity is infected with a serious imbalance of power between elites and masses, a power which is the principal threat to our democracy. - Author: Paul Wellstone
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Paul Wellstone
#15. Things happened so casually. There was no added friction to the running of time, no solemnity…. Life kept going as it always did…as if what had happened was nothing at all. But it wasn't to me. Suddenly, I was not at home in any place anymore. They all became strangers - faceless, emotionless people I could not understand or relate to. And I slowly distanced myself from their world…and, since then, I haven't really been there for most of it…. When they lowered their coffins into the ground, I found myself in a horror movie with no one to save me. I understood that I would not see them again. But oddly, they appear in my mind all the time. I see their smile; I can hear their laughter. It makes me smile back…I forget they are gone…and my step quickens to take me home to them. For a few seconds, I believe they are waiting for me as if no time has passed at all…. - Author: Sheila Matharu
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Matharu
#16. As I write this it sounds rather negative and hard but I do not mean it to be so. Happiness grounded in reality is far deeper than that built upon fantasy, and suffering teaches one that happiness can catch a person unawares in the midst of deprivation and desolation. There is a certain stripping away of the externals which makes one more sensitive to joy as well as to sorrow. - Author: Sheila Cassidy
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Cassidy
#17. I completely agree. The crazy thing is that the current system only benefits the rich and those in power. We buy into their arguments, even when they contradict our direct experiences. We accept the unacceptable. Take Marduk. We live in one of the richest cities in the world, in a developed country, and yet we have one of the highest levels of inequality and homelessness. How strange that despite our wealth we should be so greedy! - Author: Sheila Matharu
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Matharu
#18. I happen to represent Enron here in Houston. We have many good corporate citizens here in Houston. Enron happened to have been one. - Author: Sheila Jackson Lee
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Jackson Lee
#19. Perhaps that is what growing up means: slowly realizing how right your mother has been. - Author: Sheila Kohler
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Kohler
#20. The so-called women's question is a whole-people question. - Author: Sheila Rowbotham
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Rowbotham
#21. Women incorporate the values of the male sexual objectifiers within themselves. Catharine MacKinnon calls this being "thingified" in the head (MacKinnon, 1989). They learn to treat their own bodies as objects separate from themselves. Bartky explains how this works: the wolf whistle sexually objectifies a woman from without with the result that, ``"The body which only a moment before I inhabited with such ease now floods my consciousness. I have been made into an object' (Bartky, 1990, p. 27). She explains that it is not sufficient for a man simply to look at the woman secretly, he must make her aware of his looking with the whistle.

She must, "be made to know that I am a 'nice piece of ass': I must be made to see myself as they see me' (p. 27). The effect of such male policing behaviour is that, "Subject to the evaluating eye of the male connoisseur, women learn to evaluate themselves first and best'" (Bartky, 1990, p. 28).

Women thus become alienated from their own bodies. - Author: Sheila Jeffreys
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Jeffreys
#22. Californians are good at planning for the earthquake, while simultaneously denying it will happen. - Author: Sheila Ballantyne
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Ballantyne
#23. There is a kind of sadness in not wanting the things that give so many other people their life's meaning. There can be sadness at not living out a more universal story - the suppose life cycle - how out of one life cycle another cycle is supposed to come. But when out of your life, no new cycle comes, what does that feel like? It feels like nothing. Yet there is a bit of a let-down feeling when the great things that happen in the lives of others - you don't actually want those things for yourself. - Author: Sheila Heti
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Heti
#24. Men will often admit other women are oppressed but not you. - Author: Sheila Rowbotham
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Rowbotham
#25. I like the jellyfish because it has no brain or heart. It's just a thing that takes in the ocean through its mouth. I like that kind of ambition and simplicity. - Author: Sheila Heti
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Heti
#26. I spent four hours last night on the Internet, reading accounts of women who suffer from their moods in ways that feel so familiar - they want to run away from their life half the month, and the other half, life feels fine. - Author: Sheila Heti
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Heti
#27. Other people have all kinds of information about you that is invisible to you. How do you get feedback? - Author: Sheila Heen
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Heen
#28. When I strip away my dreams, what I imagine to be my potential, all the things I haven't said, what I imagine I feel for other people in the absence of my expressing it, all the rules I've made for myself that I don't follow
I see that I've done as little as anyone else in this world to deserve the grand moniker I. - Author: Sheila Heti
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Heti
#29. They see it as perfectly normal for me to sit beside Victoria's body for hours on end, telling her how much I love her and all the things I meant to inform her of but never got around to. How her grandfather Jack was a conscientious objector in the Second World War, but did not want to be separated from his mates, and so became an ambulance officer. How Grandma Sheila recalls him waking from a frequent dream of the trenches, always crying out, "I can't reach him, I can't reach him." That he was a brave man who did the best he could within his own principles. Of how he would have loved her and been so proud of her. Asking Vic to tell Jack we miss him. - Author: Linda Collins
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Linda Collins

Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Walsh
#32. Successful organizing is not built on self-interest but rather on dignity and a sense of purpose. - Author: Paul Wellstone
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Paul Wellstone
#33. The minority must have involvement in society. You can have different cultural practices that you accept. But if you are going to adopt democracy in government, then the government itself must allow the minority to be heard. - Author: Sheila Jackson Lee
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Jackson Lee
#34. Because people who live their lives this way can look forward to a single destiny, shared with others of this type - though such people do not believe they represent a type, but feel themselves distinguished from the common run of man, who they see as held down by the banal anchors of the world. But while others actually build a life in which things gain meaning and significance, this is not true of the puer. Such a person inevitably looks back on life as it nears its end with a feeling of emptiness and sadness, aware of what they have built: nothing. In their quest for a life without failure, suffer, or doubt, that is what they achieve: a life empty of all those things that make a human life meaningful. And yet they started off believing themselves too special for this world!

But - and here is the hope - there is a solution for people of this type, and it's perhaps not the solution that could have been predicted. The answer for them is to build on what they have begun and not abandon their plans as soon as things start getting difficult. They must work - without escaping into fantasies about being the person who worked. And I don't mean work for its own sake, but they must choose work that begins and ends in a passion, a question that is gnawing at their guts, which is not to be avoided but must be realized and live through the hard work and suffering that inevitably comes with the process.

They must reinforce and build on what is in their life already - Author: Sheila Heti
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Heti

Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Watt-Cloutier
#36. We have to separate promises that may never be kept from God's promises, which will never be broken. - Author: Sheila Walsh
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Walsh
#37. It is the belief that extremes and excesses of inequality must be reduced so that each person is free to fully develop his or her full potential. This is why we take precious time out of our lives and give it to politics. - Author: Paul Wellstone
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Paul Wellstone
#38. We got peanut butter and jelly, peanut butter and raisins, and a delicate peanut butter/peanut butter combination. These come crunchy or smooth, on Wonder Bread, hand-squished flat on the plate or not, as you prefer. The special today is our famous peanut butter and banana sandwich. It comes on Wonder Bread, cut diagonal on the plate, with crust or without. What can I start you with? - Author: Sheila Turnage
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Turnage
#39. If you don't stand up for the glimmer of good left in somebody, how will it ever be more? - Author: Sheila Turnage
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Turnage
#40. I was running track early in my years and I was breaking track records in sprint running. I was training and I wanted to be in the Olympics. I thought I was going to be able to win a gold medal, and my mind was pretty much set on 'this is what I want to do'. - Author: Sheila E.
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila E.

Sheila Wellstone quotes by Paul Wellstone
#43. Commitment matters. And commitment to the marriage doesn't just mean saying, "I'm staying 'til death do us part - even if I have to make everyone miserable in the process." It means saying, "I commit, every day, to make this marriage the best it can be." Commitment is an active, daily decision, not a one-time vow. - Author: Sheila Wray Gregoire
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Wray Gregoire

Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila O'Connor

Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila O'Flanagan
#46. There are times when things are clear in your head and your heart and everything comes all aligned and it's easy and it just feels good to do something. But most of the time it's not like that. Most of the time there's conflict between your head and your heart. - Author: Sheila Heti
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Heti
#47. I'm feeling a low regarding writing. I sometimes think I should finish working on my book of stripper poetry that I started, but other times I feel like it's not worth it. Sometimes I think I should work on my comic book idea, and then other times I want to work on a website, and still other times I think I should be working on this memoir. That's a lot of thinking about writing without a whole lot of writing going on. - Author: Sheila Hageman
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Hageman
#48. Having that music around us all the time, it was so inspiring. But at the same time, I was a kid. I didn't pay attention to any of it. I'd get on the drums and hit them a few times, and then go outside and play. - Author: Sheila E.
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila E.
#49. will triumph over evil, and that, in the end, truth will be revealed and the story will come full circle. It all happens within a few pages, and it all happens on this earth. But we do not live in Hans Christian Andersen's world. We live in this world. As Christians, we know there will come a day when all tears will be wiped away, when peace and joy will be the only songs we know, but we have a long road to walk until that Day of the Lord. For the moment, we have to live with one another, with all the good and bad that come with it. The sad truth is that we will let one another down. We will bruise each other. We will fail. So how should we live in the midst of this reality? - Author: Sheila Walsh
Sheila Wellstone quotes by Sheila Walsh
