One of the reasons for the failure of feminism to dislodge deeply held perceptions of male and female behavior was its insistence that women were victims, and men powerful patriarchs, which made a travesty of ordinary people's experience of the mutual interdependence of men and women.Rosalind Coward Travesty Sayings By Rosalind Coward: One of the reasons for the failure of feminism to dislodge deeply held perceptions of
Although distortion of the past is widespread, the most common travesty is one of omission, wherein populist leaders neglect to mention the crimes committed by their own side or recollect them in such a way that evades accepting full responsibility. That politicians are so able to evoke historical arguments in these ways results from a prior failure of the society to engage in a full and frank encounter with past wrongdoings.Richard Ashby Wilson Travesty Sayings By Richard Ashby Wilson: Although distortion of the past is widespread, the most common travesty is one of omission,
I believe that the Last Emergency has not arrived without reason, nor are we now moving into the throes of it by accident. As the bearers of conscious self-awareness on this planet, we have failed miserably thus far in recognizing our inextricable oneness with the universe. Whether we can refine this innate capacity in time to prevent the annihilation of the Earth - a travesty in which we have consciously and unconsciously colluded, is unknown. Nevertheless, in the remaining days of our presence here, we can love the Earth and we can love all its sentient beings.Carolyn Baker Travesty Sayings By Carolyn Baker: I believe that the Last Emergency has not arrived without reason, nor are we now
Our lives are mere flashes of light in an infinitely empty universe. In 12 years of education the most important lesson I have learned is that what we see as "normal" living is truly a travesty of our potential. In a society so governed by superficiality, appearances, and petty economics, dreams are more real than anything anything in the "real world". Refuse normalcy. Beauty is everywhere, love is endless, and joy bleeds from our everyday existence. Embrace it. I love all of you, all my friends, family, and community. I am ceaselessly grateful from the bottom of my heart for everyone. The only thing I can ask of you is to stay free of materialism. Remember that every day contains a universe of potential; exhaust it. Live and love so immensely that when death comes there is nothing left for him to take. Wealth is love, music, sports, learning, family and freedom. Above all, stay gold.Dominic Owen Mallary Travesty Sayings By Dominic Owen Mallary: Our lives are mere flashes of light in an infinitely empty universe. In 12 years
Earthly providence is a travesty of justice on any other theory than that it is a preliminary stage, which is to be followed by rectifications. Either there must be a future, or consummate injustice sits upon the throne of the universe. This is the verdict of humanity in all the ages.Randolph Sinks Foster Travesty Sayings By Randolph Sinks Foster: Earthly providence is a travesty of justice on any other theory than that it is
We can't let this happen. We should march on Washington and stop this travesty. Our nation is totally divided!'Let's fight like hell and stop this great and disgusting injustice! The world is laughing at us.Donald Trump Travesty Sayings By Donald Trump: We can't let this happen. We should march on Washington and stop this travesty. Our
The great educational value of the war against Christendom lies in the absolute truthlessness of the priest. Such purity is rare enough. The 'man of God' is entirely incapable of honesty, and only arises at the point where truth is defaced beyond all legibility. Lies are his entire metabolism, the air he breathes, his bread and his wine. He cannot comment upon the weather without a secret agenda of deceit. No word, gesture, or perception is slight enough to escape his extravagant reflex of falsification, and of the lies in circulation he will instinctively seize on the grossest, the most obscene and oppressive travesty. Any proposition passing the lips of a priest is necessarily totally false, excepting only insidiouses whose message is momentarily misunderstood. It is impossible to deny him without discovering some buried fragment or reality.Nick Land Travesty Sayings By Nick Land: The great educational value of the war against Christendom lies in the absolute truthlessness of
It would be a travesty, in my opinion, to treat those who violated our laws to get here much better than those who have patiently waited their turn to come to the United States the right way.Raul Labrador Travesty Sayings By Raul Labrador: It would be a travesty, in my opinion, to treat those who violated our laws
It was said that his decision to have his papers burnt was a defence against biographers. He had read a life of one of the archbishops of Dublin, Dr William Walsh, and thought it a travesty of the man he had known. No one would do that to him; no one would analyse the mind and heart of Daniel Mannix. It would be bad enough if they got it wrong. And for him, it might have been almost as bad if they got it right.Brenda Niall Travesty Sayings By Brenda Niall: It was said that his decision to have his papers burnt was a defence against
He bit his lip, feeling guilty for looking at her tits. He imagined ripping the bra's flimsy material , it was a travesty to cover those beauties. He loved burying his cock between her tits, using them to sandwich it as he rubbed himself to orgasm, giving her the only pearl necklace he could afford.~ DanteMarita A. Hansen Travesty Sayings By Marita A. Hansen: He bit his lip, feeling guilty for looking at her tits. He imagined ripping the
She strong-armed the swinging door and walked through. Straight into an acid flashback.
Clara's first reaction was to laugh. She stood stunned for a moment then started to laugh. And laugh. And laugh until she thought she'd piddle. Peter was soon infected and began laughing. And Gamache, who up until this moment had only seen a travesty, smiled, then chuckled, then laughed and within moments was laughing so hard he had to wipe away tears.
'Holy horrible taste, Batman,' said Clara to Peter who doubled over, laughing some more.
'Solid, man, solid,' he gasped and managed to raise a peace sign before having to put both hands on his knees to support his heaving body.
Louise Penny Travesty Sayings By Louise Penny: She strong-armed the swinging door and walked through. Straight into an acid flashback.Clara's first reaction
Her laugh was a travesty. Which made sense because in a way, so was his apology. But what was he supposed to say?
I want you until I hurt. Until I sweat.
I love you with a raw, bleeding need that I've never understood.
And all I know for sure is that you can never be mine.
Jessica Bird Travesty Sayings By Jessica Bird: Her laugh was a travesty. Which made sense because in a way, so was his
The Taliban travesty, a noxious combination of Deobandi rigidity, tribal chauvinism, and the aggression of the traumatized war orphan.Karen Armstrong Travesty Sayings By Karen Armstrong: The Taliban travesty, a noxious combination of Deobandi rigidity, tribal chauvinism, and the aggression of

If I had a dream it would be to think, What would it be like for everybody to have the kind of health care I had? What would that feel like? How would that be, to live in that world? Because I'll tell you, to be really, really sick, and to not have money. That is terrifying. And in my opinion, a travesty.Eve Ensler Travesty Sayings By Eve Ensler: If I had a dream it would be to think, What would it be like
I also wrote them about you." His blue gaze bored into her with paralyzing force. She couldn't move. Couldn't flee. Could only stare at the social travesty of his ungroomed features - the scruffy half beard shadowing his jaw, the too-long hair falling over his forehead - and feel her heart beat with love for this unconventional man. Darius's grip softened on her wrist until his fingers were tracing tiny circles over the sensitive skin. "I told them that I had met a woman who wasn't afraid to stand toe-to-toe with me. A woman who had seen my flaws and learned my darkest secrets, yet didn't immediately run for the hills." His self-deprecating chuckle coaxed a reluctant smile from her, the sound soothing the sharp edges of her turmoil. "I told them how this woman seemed instinctively to know when to comfort and when to confront, and how I was better with her in my life than I'd ever been on my own.Karen Witemeyer Travesty Sayings By Karen Witemeyer: I also wrote them about you." His blue gaze bored into her with paralyzing force.

In which year did a Harvard sculler last outrow an Oxford man at Henley?" Langdon had no idea, but he could imagine only one reason the question had been asked. "Surely such a travesty has never occurred.Dan Brown Travesty Sayings By Dan Brown: In which year did a Harvard sculler last outrow an Oxford man at Henley?" Langdon
It is a travesty, in my mind, for the state and local governments on the one hand to expect the Federal government to reimburse them for costs attributable to illegal immigrants, when on the other hand the State and local governments prohibit their own law enforcement and other officials from cooperating with the Immigration and Naturalization Service to locate or apprehend or expel illegal aliens.Alan K. Simpson Travesty Sayings By Alan K. Simpson: It is a travesty, in my mind, for the state and local governments on the
The first Elizabeth film was an absolute travesty historically. It really was sloppy. Things like 'The Other Boleyn Girl' and 'The Tudors,' people's perception is distorted because of these. It matters to me as a historian, because I spend my life trying to get it right.Alison Weir Travesty Sayings By Alison Weir: The first Elizabeth film was an absolute travesty historically. It really was sloppy. Things like

This Court has never held that the Constitution forbids the execution of a convicted defendant who has had a full and fair trial but is later able to convince a habeas court that he is 'actually' innocent.Antonin Scalia Travesty Sayings By Antonin Scalia: This Court has never held that the Constitution forbids the execution of a convicted defendant
It is a naive sort of feminism that insists that women prove their ability to do all the things that men do. This is a distortion and a travesty. Men have never sought to prove that they can do all the things women do. Why subject women to purely masculine criteria? Women can and ought to be judged by the criteria of femininity, for it is in their femininity that they participate in the human race. And femininity has its limitations. So has masculinity. That is what we've been talking about. To do this is not to do that. To be this is not to be that. To be a woman is not to be a man. To be married is not to be single - which may mean not to have a career. To marry this man is not to marry all the others. A choice is a limitation.Elisabeth Elliot Travesty Sayings By Elisabeth Elliot: It is a naive sort of feminism that insists that women prove their ability to
To equate a corporation with a person is a travesty of justice.Madeleine M. Kunin Travesty Sayings By Madeleine M. Kunin: To equate a corporation with a person is a travesty of justice.
Funeral expenses are the curse of the poor everywhere on earth, they are wasteful and unnecessary, they are the price of foolish ostentation and a display that is less an evidence of grief than a vulgar travesty of those pompous obsequies where no grief is.Joyce Cary Travesty Sayings By Joyce Cary: Funeral expenses are the curse of the poor everywhere on earth, they are wasteful and
Has there ever been a more important subject, in all the world, than children and families? These are, after all, the foundation and ultimate purpose of any society. Moreover, the overall purpose of this experience is not merely survival or just the day after day (after day) exercise of going through the motions of meeting basic needs. Rather, it was meant to be a long, deep immersion of a work in progress, a life-long celebration of sorts, steeped in love, beauty, and joy. Anything less is a travesty and is tragically off the mark of true success for the parent and the child, and amiss of the essentials for a fullness of life for both.Connie Kerbs Travesty Sayings By Connie Kerbs: Has there ever been a more important subject, in all the world, than children and
You can't tear up everything just to get the dollar out of it without suffering as result. It is a travesty to burn our woods and thereby burn up the fertilizer nature has provided for us. We must enrich our soil every year instead of merely depleting it. It is fundamental that nature will drive away those who commit sin against it.George Washington Carver Travesty Sayings By George Washington Carver: You can't tear up everything just to get the dollar out of it without suffering
That's what goalkeeping is all about. It's really having nothing to do at times, and then having to make sure you are concentrating and ready to make the save when called upon. Going in 1-0 down would have been a travesty.Kasey Keller Travesty Sayings By Kasey Keller: That's what goalkeeping is all about. It's really having nothing to do at times, and
Life on earth is far too short, and we were each created with such notable talents that it'd be a travesty to while them away on work we don't love.Tsh Oxenreider Travesty Sayings By Tsh Oxenreider: Life on earth is far too short, and we were each created with such notable
We will have gone from men telling us condescendingly to not bother our pretty little heads about important things like politics, to not bothering our pretty little heads without even being told not to! The suffragettes struggled and suffered so much on our behalf; what a travesty of everything they stood for, if we simply look away as though we can't be bothered.Marianne Williamson Travesty Sayings By Marianne Williamson: We will have gone from men telling us condescendingly to not bother our pretty little

They don't get
You saw this as a travesty because, by marrying Mara, I was taking an important icon from you. But this is about starting a new life, not ending an old one.Michael A. Stackpole Travesty Sayings By Michael A. Stackpole: You saw this as a travesty because, by marrying Mara, I was taking an important

It is, of course, simply another name for narcissism. Whatever my problems, they do not stem from me. They stem from the Other, who is the Bad Guy always. The real travesty here is that the cases of true oppression - a genuine case of a woman, a gay, a black, an Indian, a white male, getting held back due solely to ethnocentric or group prejudice - those cases lose all their urgency because they are drowned out by a thousand other voices all screaming oppression to explain even the most trivial and often unavoidable disappointments of life. SoKen Wilber Travesty Sayings By Ken Wilber: It is, of course, simply another name for narcissism. Whatever my problems, they do not
There is something wrong with this world." She stood like she was making a speech.

She stood like she was making a speech.
To suppose that safety-first consists in having a small gamble in a large number of different companies where I have no information to reach a good judgment, as compared with a substantial stake in a company where one's information is adequate, strikes me as a travesty of investment policy.John Maynard Keynes Travesty Sayings By John Maynard Keynes: To suppose that safety-first consists in having a small gamble in a large number of

Britain, along with the U.S.A., is war weary, and after the travesty of Iraq and Afghanistan, has grave misgivings in any future involvement in the Middle East. The ghost of Tony Blair and his single-minded determination to attack Iraq, at any cost, has cast a long shadow over British politics. The British public have a long collective memory.Paul Conroy Travesty Sayings By Paul Conroy: Britain, along with the U.S.A., is war weary, and after the travesty of Iraq and
Hear ye Hear ye ... ah, fuck it. We're here today for bullshit and we all know it.

As always with any discussion of elite immunity, it's crucial to note that what makes this development such a particularly warped travesty is that the very same elites who enjoy this immunity have created the world's largest, and the Western world's most oppressive and merciless, penal state for ordinary citizens.Glenn Greenwald Travesty Sayings By Glenn Greenwald: As always with any discussion of elite immunity, it's crucial to note that what makes

Life is really a travesty of will: it is a parade of learning how to lose people and improve at feigning indifference.

We even talked like Hemingway characters, though in travesty, as if to deny our discipleship: That is your bed, and it is a good bed, and you must make it and you must make it well. Or: Today is the day of the meatloaf. The meatloaf is swell. It is swell but when it is gone the not-having meatloaf will be tragic and the meatloaf man will not come anymore.Tobias Wolff Travesty Sayings By Tobias Wolff: We even talked like Hemingway characters, though in travesty, as if to deny our discipleship:
In her, as an Alexandrian, licence was in a curious way a form of self-abnegation, a travesty of freedom; and if I saw her as an exemplar of the city it was not of Alexandria, or Plotinus that I was forced to think, but of the sad thirtieth child of Valentinus who fell, 'not like Lucifer by rebelling against God, but by desiring too ardently to be united to him'.*Lawrence Durrell Travesty Sayings By Lawrence Durrell: In her, as an Alexandrian, licence was in a curious way a form of self-abnegation,

Sartain: Tooter had gone back to court to testify in Billy's murder trial. The Leavenworth justice

You talk about the Pro-Life movement being one of the great shames of our nation. I think, if you want number two, I think - I think it's that.

Secular theorists often assume they know what a religious argument is like: they present it as a crude prescription from God, backed up with threat of hellfire, derived from general or particular revelation, and they contrast it with the elegant complexity of a philosophical argument by Rawls (say) or Dworkin. With this image in mind, they think it obvious that religious argument should be excluded from public life ... But those who have bothered to make themselves familiar with existing religious-based arguments in modern political theory know that this is mostly a travesty . 13Edward Feser Travesty Sayings By Edward Feser: Secular theorists often assume they know what a religious argument is like: they present it

Not only does a lens distort forms, but the ordinary plate makes an unholy mess of colour in its tone relations. Yellow becomes black, and blue white. Black sunflowers against a white sky - what a travesty!Walter J. Phillips Travesty Sayings By Walter J. Phillips: Not only does a lens distort forms, but the ordinary plate makes an unholy mess
There was another world below - this was the problem. Another world below that had volume but no form. By day the sea was blue surface and whitecaps, a realistic navigational challenge, and the problem could be overlooked. By night, though, the mind went forth and dove down through the yielding - the violently lonely - nothingness on which the heavy steel ship traveled, and in every moving swell you saw a travesty of grids, you saw how truly and forever lost a man would be six fathoms under. Dry land lacked this z-axis. Dry land was like being awake. Even in chartless desert you could drop to your knees and pound land with your fist and land didn't give. Of course the ocean, too, had a skin of wakefulness. But every point on this skin was a point where you could sink and by sinking disappear.Jonathan Franzen Travesty Sayings By Jonathan Franzen: There was another world below - this was the problem. Another world below that had
To terrorize a man into believing in God is never the work of God, but the work of human expediency. If we want to convince a congregation of a certain thing, we may use terror to frighten them into it; but never say that is God's way, it is our way. To call that God's method is a travesty to the character of God.Oswald Chambers Travesty Sayings By Oswald Chambers: To terrorize a man into believing in God is never the work of God, but
It's a travesty when a woman wastes herself.Jill Alexander Essbaum Travesty Sayings By Jill Alexander Essbaum: It's a travesty when a woman wastes herself.
Slavery destroys, or vitiates, or pollutes, whatever it touches. No interest of society escapes the influence of its clinging curse. It makes Southern religion a stench in the nostrils of Christendom; it makes Southern politics a libel upon all the principles of republicanism; it makes Southern literature a travesty upon the honorable profession of letters.Hinton Rowan Helper Travesty Sayings By Hinton Rowan Helper: Slavery destroys, or vitiates, or pollutes, whatever it touches. No interest of society escapes the
But what I didnt want to have happen, and I made this clear to Jeremy (Florida AD), if I am able to go coach, I want to coach at one place, the University of Florida. It would be a travesty, it would be ridiculous to all of a sudden come back and get the feeling back, get the health back, feel good again and then all of a sudden go throw some other colors on my shirt and go coach? I dont want to do that. I have too much love for this University and these players and for what weve built.Urban Meyer Travesty Sayings By Urban Meyer: But what I didnt want to have happen, and I made this clear to Jeremy

What made Guantanamo such a travesty - and what still makes it such - is that it is a system of indefinite detention whereby human beings are put in cages for years and years without ever being charged with a crime.Glenn Greenwald Travesty Sayings By Glenn Greenwald: What made Guantanamo such a travesty - and what still makes it such - is

Hollywood movies of the Fifties, like The Ten Commandments and Ben-Hur, with their epic clash of pagan and Judeo-Christian cultures, tell more about art and society than the French-infatuated ideologues who have made a travesty of the best American higher criticism.Camille Paglia Travesty Sayings By Camille Paglia: Hollywood movies of the Fifties, like The Ten Commandments and Ben-Hur, with their epic clash
When The Journal of Words compiled its list of the one hundred best novels written in English, do you know that Pride and Prejudice was number twelve?" She stopped pacing and glared at Jane. "And do you know where Jane Eyre was?" she asked. She looked at the four of them in turn, but nobody answered her. "Number fifty-two!" she shrieked. "Fifty-two! Below that pornographic travesty Lolita!" She spat the title as if it were poison. "Below Huckleberry Finn! Below Ulysses. Have you ever tried to read Ulysses? Have you ever finished it? No, you haven't. No one has. They just carry it around and lie about having read it.Michael Thomas Ford Travesty Sayings By Michael Thomas Ford: When The Journal of Words compiled its list of the one hundred best novels written
When I went to the Hall of Fame in 2000 and was inducted, it was a travesty the kind of carnage I saw out of these guys who were in their 50s and 60s, who had defined and in many ways laid the foundation for the NFL being what it is today.Howie Long Travesty Sayings By Howie Long: When I went to the Hall of Fame in 2000 and was inducted, it was

Many people experience the travesty of regret in their end days; the realization that nothing held them back, that nothing was in their way, that there is no one to blame, only themselves. Don't just sit by waiting for your life to happen, make it happen! Don't just hope your dreams will come alive, breathe life into them! Don't let your fear help you birth a well-nourished regret, take action today! At the end of the day, at the end of the year, at the end of your life, live in such a manner that you can hold your head up high, smile, and be proud of a life well lived.Steve Maraboli Travesty Sayings By Steve Maraboli: Many people experience the travesty of regret in their end days; the realization that nothing
Efforts to remove the Christian faith from subjects like American history distort the content of the subject. Just as wrong is the idea that an evangelical textbook publisher should make it appear that evangelicals played a major role at every point in the history of the U.S. All such efforts are a travesty of history.Ronald H. Nash Travesty Sayings By Ronald H. Nash: Efforts to remove the Christian faith from subjects like American history distort the content of
He was smiling. It was one of those sincere smiles grown-ups give kids when they're trying to get them in arm's reach for something bad. Doctors smile that way right before they give you a shot; teachers look the same just before they tell you they found out what you did.
