deprivation

A Quote by Sol Luckman on habit, addiction, ritual, highlight, candy, food, decadence, civilization, fruitless, deprivation, cult, rules, laws, and diet

From that point on I visited the bottle every day at dusk. After the morning with Alexis and the afternoon in the sun, this became the third highlight of my day. I never ate more than a milk ball or two and at most half a licorice twist. It was the ritual that counted, the decadent taste of civilization in that strange fruitless Eden where I was allowed to eat practically anything, so long as it wasn’t food.

A Quote by Nelson Mandela on survival, deprivation, and convictions

But the human body has an enormous capacity for adjusting to trying circumstances. I have found that one can bear the unbearable if one can keep one's spirits strong even when one's body is being tested. Strong convictions are the secret of surviving deprivation; your spirit can be full even when your stomach is empty.

Nelson Mandela (1918 -)
