A Quote by Judy McGarth on clothes, company, individuality, and life

Individuality has become the thing . . . dressing to look like you belong to a company . . . doesn't even enter the consciousness anymore. Clothes are more about having a life.

A Quote by Joseph K. Folsom on advertising, art, caring, christ, church, clothes, communication, control, emotion, exercise, food, health, home, honesty, learning, love, management, money, music, nations, needs, neighbors, people, sex, sharing, skill, sl

Important skills to teach young people in the home: The material processing skills, such as food handling, clothing, laundry, cleaning, taking care of what you have, throwing away or sharing with others what you don't need. The art of handling money. The arts of health management including sex, reproduction, nutrition, exercise, sleep. Mechanical skills, recreational skills, the art of managing time., The art of choosing wisely, (we have almost everything spread out before us and pushed on us by advertising. Do we feel sure that we always know how to choose wisely? The art of communication, the art of love (we need more in our own families, different peoples, cultural groups, races, nations.) The art of controlling our emotions, the art of learning a talent - love of music, and song, a love for church and Christ. The art of honesty, caring for your neighbor, volunteering. The art of studying and learning. (If we can learn all of this in the home before we leave the nest, how can we possibly go wrong.)

A Quote by John Bryant on clothes, cruelty, day, dreams, earth, entertainment, existence, food, health, peace, and world

I dream of a world where Man is at peace, not only with himself, but also with all the other creatures of the Earth. I long for a day when Man rejects the exploitation of other species for food, clothing, health, entertainment or even companionship - for such a day will mean that cruelty no longer exists and it is cruelty which dominates my every conscious moment.

John Bryant (1942 -)

A Quote by Hermann Hesse on cleverness, clothes, contentment, good, intelligence, learning, life, people, and reality

There was once a man, Harry, called the Steppenwolf. He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal of all that people of a good intelligence can, and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life.

Hermann Hesse (1877 - 1962)
