A Quote by Kathleen Turner on attitude, men, sex, and women

Being a sex symbol has to do with an attitude, not looks. Most men think it's looks, most women know otherwise.

Kathleen Turner (1954 -)

A Quote by Jozef Hand-Boniakowski, PhD on certainty, children, cinema, college, competence, country, crime, democracy, dogs, friendship, generations, honesty, jobs, meaning, people, planning, reflection, scandal, sex, teaching, voting, wit, and work

An unsolicited email arrived which said, "I recently saw a bumper sticker that said, 'Thank me, I voted for Clinton-Gore.' So I sat down and reflected on that and I am sending my 'Thank you' for what you have done, specifically: 1. Thank you for introducing us to Gennifer Flowers, Paula Jones, Monica Lewinsky, Dolly Kyle Browning, Kathleen Willey and of course Juanita Broaddrick, who told NBC that you raped her. Are there any others that we should know about? 2. Thank you for teaching my 8 yr. old about oral sex. I had really planned to wait until he was about 10 or so to discuss it with him, but now he knows more about it than I did as a senior in college. The cigar thing was also neat for the kids. 3. Thank you for showing us that sexual harassment in the work place (especially the White House) and on the job is OK, and all you have to know is what the meaning of "IS" is. It really is great to know that certain sexual acts are not sex and one person may have sex while the other involved does NOT have sex. Monica said frequently that while you were on the phone, she would work at one end and you at the other. What productivity! 4. Thank you for reintroducing the concept of impeachment to a new generation and demonstrating that the ridiculous plot of the movie "Wag the Dog" could be plausible after all. The people of the Sudan, Afghanistan and Serbia are all running to rent the videos, now that you made them part of the story. 5. Thanks for making Jimmy Carter look competent, Gerald Ford look graceful, Richard Nixon look honest, Lyndon Johnson look truthful and John Kennedy look moral. 6. Thank you for the 72 House and Senate witnesses who have pleaded the 5th amendment and the 17 witnesses who have fled the country to avoid testifying about Democratic fund raising. 7. Thank you for the 19 charges, 8 convictions and 4 imprisonments from the whitewater "mess" and the 55 criminal charges and 32 criminal convictions (so far) in the other "Clinton" scandals. 8. Thanks for remembering the families of the many deceased people who once were your friends, who served you and died so young and suddenly: Vince Foster, Jerry Parks, Ron Brown, Admiral Boorda, Les Aspin, Barbara Alice Wiese, Mary Mahoney, Jim McDougal et al." To wit, I offer a reply. . . .

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 Joseph Addison on beauty, familiarity, sex, and virtue

Beauty soon grows familiar to the lover, Fades in his eye, and palls upon the sense. The virtuous Marcia towers above her sex.

A Quote by John Milton on bravery, courtship, play, and sex

But who is this, what thing of sea or land,-- Female of sex it seems,-- That so bedeck'd, ornate, and gay, Comes this way sailing Like a stately ship Of Tarsus, bound for th' isles Of Javan or Gadire, With all her bravery on, and tackle trim, Sails fill'd, and streamers waving, Courted by all the winds that hold them play, An amber scent of odorous perfume Her harbinger?

John Milton (1608 - 1674)

A Quote by James Baldwin on money, sex, and thought

Money, it turned out, was exactly like sex, you thought of nothing else if you didn't have it and thought of other things if you did.

The Englishman can get along with sex quite perfectly so long as he can pretend that it isn't sex but something else.
