identity

A Quote by unknown on affection, creation, freedom, garden, identity, leisure, life, needs, potential, research, and understanding

A research project in Australia, entitled "The Congruent Garden: an Investigation into the Role of the Domestic Garden in Satisfying Fundamental Human Needs," interviewed gardeners on the values of gardening in their everyday lives. The researchers established that gardens have the potential to satisfy nine basic human needs (subsistence, protection, affection, understanding, participation, leisure, creation, identity, freedom) across four existential states (being, having, doing and interacting.)

A Quote by Tallulah Bankhead on death, excess, identity, losing, and moderation

I'm the foe of moderation, the champion of excess. If I may lift a line from a die-hard whose identity is lost in the shuffle, 'I'd rather be strongly wrong than weakly right.'

Tallulah Bankhead (1903 - 1968)

A Quote by Susan Faludi on culture, feminism, force, happiness, identity, justice, men, privacy, time, and women

Feminism's agenda is basic: it asks that women not be forced to "choose" between public justice and private happiness. It asks that women be free to define themselves--instead of having their identity defined for them, time and again, by their culture and their men.

Susan Faludi (1959 -)

A Quote by Robert Terwilliger on identity and thought

Committing yourself is a way of finding out who you are. A man finds his identity by identifying. A man's identity is not best thought of as the way in which he is separated from his fellows but the way in which he is united with them.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on dance, heart, identity, insults, joy, kindness, nature, and speech

An eye can threaten like a loaded and levelled gun, or it can insult like hissing or kicking; or, in its altered mood, by beams of kindness, it can make the heart dance for joy. . . . One of the most wonderful things in nature is a glance of the eye; it transcends speech; it is the bodily symbol of identity.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)

A Quote by Matt Spinks on day, identity, individuality, life, listening, and society

Most of all we hate collective identity: every day of your pathetic life you are being put into a little box by society by the way you look or the bands you listen to. Collective identity sucks. Be an individual, don't make it easy to be dismissed in a sentence
