A Quote by Marya Mannes on earth, abuse, future, revenge, and environment

The earth we abuse and the living things we kill will, in the end, take their revenge; for in exploiting their presence we are diminishing our future.

A Quote by Gavin De Becker on no, negotiation, justifications, controlling, and abuse

"No" is a word that must never be negotiated, because the person who chooses not to hear it is trying to control you…  Declining to hear "no" is a signal that someone is either seeking control or refusing to relinquish it.

A Quote by Shauna Singh Baldwin on violence, abuse, control, and oppression

The kind of violence one should fear is always quiet and comes all wrapped up in words like Love until you live with it daily and you value only that which is valuable to the violator.

A Quote by Robert I. Sutton on respect, behavior, work, workplace, and abuse

The “No Asshole Rule” doesn’t allow anyone to get away with demeaning, nasty, or disrespectful behavior toward others in the workplace. People who continually behave that way need serious reform or should be shown the door.

The rule is needed because too many organizations allow such behavior to persist. For example, surveys show that one out of two Americans has an abusive boss. And one out of five or six people is in work relationships where they feel persistently, emotionally abused.

Assholes have devastating cumulative effects partly because nasty interactions have far more impact on us than positive ones—five times the punch, according to recent research. And it takes numerous encounters with positive people to offset the energy and happiness sapped by a single episode with one asshole.

The behavior of assholes damages individual well-being and also impacts corporate profits, mostly because it reduces people’s commitment to the organization and drives out some of the best employees.

A Quote by Raphie on abuse, violence, music, b-side, piper, fear, kite, and sorrow

I know.  You got beat up.  So did I.  And then we beat up each other.  Just call it a B-side melody with an A-side whiplash like NOBODY business.  The way I see it, the best way to deal with it is to just write a better tune and flip the A-side to the B-side and the B-side to the Z.  Put it away folks and let it sleep because there’s a piper man a playin’ to a wholly brand new beat.  Flip the Z side to the B side and the A side to the C.  That my friends is how you navigate the darkness; to turn the fright into a kite and the sorrow into sight.

A Quote by Russell Means on revolution, environment, mother earth, retaliate, abuse, and full circle

All European tradition, Marxism included, has conspired to defy the natural order of all things. Mother Earth has been abused, the powers have been abused, and this cannot go on forever. No theory can alter that simple fact. Mother Earth will retaliate, the whole environment will retaliate, and the abusers will be eliminated. Things come full circle, back to where they started. That's revolution.
