Spousal Abuse quotes by April Daniels
#1. Maybe it's because your mother is always Mom to you, or maybe it's because I was in denial, but finally it hits me: Mom is just as much his captive as I am. She's not just the quieter parent, the more reasonable one. She's the trustee trapped between the warden and the other prisoner.

Immediately upon the heels of this understanding is another: I must not say this out loud. To say it out loud is to name it, and to name it is to give it irresistible power. That power will mean it can no longer be ignored. The polite fictions and convenient blind spots won't work anymore. Something will have to change.

And I know, with a certainty that fills me with dread, this is something she will not do. If I say the name of this thing he's done to her, she will fight me. She will join him, because she'll have to. Because she'll have to destroy me or else admit I was right. #Quote by April Daniels
Spousal Abuse quotes by Thomm Quackenbush
#2. There might have been prettier women in the room but, when she turned those babies on, fluttered her eyelashes, I was hers. It had taken me nearly fifteen years to extinguish their light. Now, when she looks at me, it's a vacuum. I had drained so much from her over the course of our marriage that every glance rips a little bit of my soul away to fill the void I had whittled within her. #Quote by Thomm Quackenbush
Spousal Abuse quotes by Shannon Celebi
#3. Her mother always told her, "If he hits you, then you leave," but Jack had never hit her, not with his fists. #Quote by Shannon Celebi
Spousal Abuse quotes by Helen Fisher
#4. Men with high baseline levels of testosterone marry less frequently, have more adulterous affairs, commit more spousal abuse, and divorce more often. #Quote by Helen Fisher
Spousal Abuse quotes by Stefan Molyneux
#5. The woman who left abusive husbands in the 60's and 70's improved the institution of marriage because men now know that women can leave their husbands and the women or men who stay in abusive relationships are a massive advertisement to non- consequentiality of abuse.

So, if you stay in a abusive relationship you are signaling to everyone who ever comes in contact with you or hears about you that abusers face no consequences to their abuse therefore by staying in an abusive relationship you are encouraging and subsidizing abuse.

By getting out of abusive relationships you are saying the whole world over that abusers can't get away with it. That there are negative consequences to child, adult, or spousal abuse. You name it. It just doesn't have consequences for you, it has consequences for other people.

When you break out and reject abusive and irredeemable relationships you are sending a clear signal which all abusers are listening for at all times. "Can I get away with it?" That's all they're thinking. It is my hope that abusers hear this and say "Oh shit. The game is up. #Quote by Stefan Molyneux
Spousal Abuse quotes by Vashti Quiroz-Vega
#6. Don't turn your face away.
Once you've seen, you can no longer act like you don't know.
Open your eyes to the truth. It's all around you.
Don't deny what the eyes to your soul have revealed to you.
Now that you know, you cannot feign ignorance.
Now that you're aware of the problem, you cannot pretend you don't care.
To be concerned is to be human.
To act is to care. #Quote by Vashti Quiroz-Vega
Spousal Abuse quotes by John Grisham
#7. A battered wife is a married woman until she gets a divorce. Or until she kills the bastard. #Quote by John Grisham
Spousal Abuse quotes by Mary Griffith
#8. If no one had ever challenged religious authority, there'd be no democracy, no public schools, women's rights, improvements to science and medicine, evolution of slavery and no laws against child abuse or spousal abuse. I was afraid to challenge my religious beliefs because that was the basis of creation - mine anyway. I was afraid to question the Bible or anything in it, and when I did, that's when I became involved with PFLAG and realized that my son was a perfectly normal human being and there was nothing for God to heal because Bobby was perfect just the way he was. #Quote by Mary Griffith
Spousal Abuse quotes by Kathleen Turner
#9. I would certainly choose my jobs depending on the actions of the character. I won't do anything that has to do with child abuse or women's abuse. #Quote by Kathleen Turner
Spousal Abuse quotes by Wayne Gerard Trotman
#10. Laws become fragile under the influence of dictators. #Quote by Wayne Gerard Trotman
Spousal Abuse quotes by John Grisham
#11. Dear Mrs. Black: On seven prior occasions this company has denied your claim in writing. We now deny it for the eighth and final time. You must be stupid, stupid stupid, stupid! #Quote by John Grisham
Spousal Abuse quotes by Emily Andrews
#12. Ricky just listens. He isn't shocked. He isn't surprised. He listens to me because he knows. He knows the shame and the guilt and the sorrow and the rage. And he does not judge me. He just listens. #Quote by Emily Andrews
Spousal Abuse quotes by Dan Fante
#13. I was a degenerate, with an insatiable capacity for perversion. Incapable of change. I could do anything except not drink. #Quote by Dan Fante
Spousal Abuse quotes by Louis IX Of France
#14. In prosperity, give thanks to God with humility and fear lest by pride you abuse God's benefits and so offend him. #Quote by Louis IX Of France
Spousal Abuse quotes by Frederick Douglass
#15. What, to the American slave, is your 4th of July? I answer; a day that reveals to him, more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. To him, your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty, an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your denunciation of tyrants, brass fronted impudence; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mockery; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade and solemnity, are, to Him, mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy-a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages. There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of the United States, at this very hour.

Go where you may, search where you will, roam through all the monarchies and despotisms of the Old World, travel through South America, search out every abuse, and when you have found the last, lay your facts by the side of the everyday practices of this nation, and you will say with me, that, for revolting barbarity and shameless hypocrisy, America reigns without a rival. #Quote by Frederick Douglass
Spousal Abuse quotes by Dov Davidoff
#16. Domestic abuse is wrong, but domestic retribution is okay. #Quote by Dov Davidoff
Spousal Abuse quotes by Frank Beddor
#17. For most of the universe's life is not all gummy wads and tarty tarts; is a struggle against hardship, unfairness, corruption, abuse, and adversity in all its guises, where even to survive - let alone survive with dignity - is heroic. To soldier through the days in the wake of failure is the courageous act of many. #Quote by Frank Beddor
Spousal Abuse quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#18. It was white. White and gold. It was livery.
I told myself it meant nothing. Itwas just a color.
But I was wrong. That color meant everything.
It was a command to the Queen's ladies that they shouldn't greet me or acknowledge that I'd entered a room.
It was an indelible line drawn between me and the other Grisha.
It was a signal to the King that he could follow me into my chambers and press me up against the wall, that I was available for his use.
That there was no point to crying out. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Spousal Abuse quotes by Lamar S. Smith
#19. Judicial abuse occurs when judges substitute their own political views for the law. #Quote by Lamar S. Smith
Spousal Abuse quotes by Lundy Bancroft
#20. Abuse counselors say of the abusive client: When he looks at himself in the morning and sees his dirty face, he sets about washing the mirror. #Quote by Lundy Bancroft
Spousal Abuse quotes by Ted Hughes
#21. Applause is the beginning of abuse #Quote by Ted Hughes
Spousal Abuse quotes by Topsy Gift
#22. Society has done so much damage to the psyche of the woman being to the extent that she now thinks that her greatest achievement in life is to be a good kitchen girl and a sexy bedroom girl. #Quote by Topsy Gift
Spousal Abuse quotes by Desmond Tutu
#23. Who can stop climate change? We can. You and you and you, and me. And it is not just that we can stop it, we have a responsibility to do so that began in the genesis of humanity, when God commanded the earliest human inhabitants of the Garden of Eden, "to till it and keep it". To "keep" it; not to abuse it, not to make as much money as possible from it, not to destroy it #Quote by Desmond Tutu
Spousal Abuse quotes by Joan Frances Casey
#24. Jo tried to think about her suspicion that Lynn liked her. She figured that Lynn was nice to her because she was a patient. Jo's mother had shown her what it meant to have a professional mask. The times Jo saw her mother at work in the lab, busy and efficient as she drew blood and marked vials. Nancy smiled warmly at the patients, ready with a sympathetic comment. If a patient or a doctor called Nancy at home, she immediately became the caring professional, no matter what had been happening before the phone rang. When Lynn hung up after an evening phone call from Missy, Jo suspected that Lynn resumed screaming at her husband or kids. #Quote by Joan Frances Casey
Spousal Abuse quotes by Lundy Bancroft
#25. Abuse is not caused by bad relationship dynamics. #Quote by Lundy Bancroft
Spousal Abuse quotes by Mark M. Bello
#26. What happened in his life to turn him into a depraved and callous individual? Did he become a priest because it afforded him fertile ground for young conquests? These questions might be answered during the upcoming criminal and civil trials. #Quote by Mark M. Bello
Spousal Abuse quotes by Ellen Bass
#27. So often survivors have had their experiences denied, trivialized, or distorted. Writing is an important avenue for healing because it gives you the opportunity to define your own reality. You can say: This did happen to me. It was that bad. It was the fault & responsibility of the adult. I was - and am - innocent. The Courage to Heal by Ellen Bass & Laura Davis #Quote by Ellen Bass
Spousal Abuse quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson
#28. People see my body, but my soul is lost, and I do not have anything left to give."
~Love is respect ♥~ #Quote by Charlena E. Jackson
Spousal Abuse quotes by Renee Fredrickson
#29. Sometimes buried memories of abuse emerge spontaneously. A triggering event or catalyst starts the memories flowing. The survivor then experiences the memories as a barrage of images about the abuse and related details. Memories that are retrieved in this manner are relatively easy to understand and believe because the person remembering is so flooded with coherent, consistent information. #Quote by Renee Fredrickson
Spousal Abuse quotes by John Irving
#30. I guess [Mrs. Reagan is] one of those many American adults of a certain advanced age who believe that the root of all evil lies in the area of young people's self-abuse. Someone should tell Mrs. Reagan that young people-- not even young people on drugs-- are not the ones responsible for the major problems besetting the world! #Quote by John Irving
Spousal Abuse quotes by Alan Sugar
#31. I came from a socially deprived background when I was 15, 16 years old, but one thing I knew was one - you don't abuse a policeman, and two - you don't steal things. #Quote by Alan Sugar
Spousal Abuse quotes by John Lennon
#32. The more reality we face, the more we realise that unreality is the main programme of the day. The more real we become, the more abuse we take, so it does radicalise us in a way, like being put in a corner. But it would be better if there were more of us. #Quote by John Lennon
Spousal Abuse quotes by Gordon Klingenschmitt
#33. And I want you to notice that one of them, one of the men almost has his tongue hanging out like he's licking his chops. Like this baby is ours now. And that's fine. You may call that love. But it looks to me a little bit like lust. And when they crave to bring the children of heterosexual couples through adoption into their homes, so that they can raise them in the homosexual lifestyle. And studies now show, that up to 20% kids raised by gay couples become gay themselves. It is a recruiting tool. And it is a child abuse tool. #Quote by Gordon Klingenschmitt
Spousal Abuse quotes by Jude Gibbs
#34. Embrace the pain #Quote by Jude Gibbs
Spousal Abuse quotes by Ellen Hopkins
#35. Not even Carol knows firsthand how it feels to be hurt in such a way by someone who's supposed to protect you #Quote by Ellen Hopkins
Spousal Abuse quotes by Thomas Ligotti
#36. All social orders command their members to imbibe in pipe dreams of posterity, the mirage of immortality, to keep them ahead of the extinction that would ensue in a few generations if the species did not replenish itself. This is the implicit, and most pestiferous, rationale for propagation: to become fully integrated into a society, one must offer it fresh blood. Naturally, the average set of parents does not conceive of their conception as a sacrificial act. These are civilized human beings we are talking about, and thus they are quite able to fill their heads with a panoply of less barbaric rationales for reproduction, among them being the consolidation of a spousal relationship; the expectation of new and enjoyable experiences in the parental role; the hope that one will pass the test as a mother or father; the pleasing of one's own parents, not to forget their parents and possibly a great-grandparent still loitering about; the serenity of taking one's place in the seemingly deathless lineage of a familial enterprise; the creation of individuals who will care for their paternal and maternal selves in their dotage; the quelling of a sense of guilt or selfishness for not having done their duty as human beings; and the squelching of that faint pathos that is associated with the childless. Such are some of the overpowering pressures upon those who would fertilize the future. These pressures build up in people throughout their lifetimes and must be released, just as everyone m #Quote by Thomas Ligotti
Spousal Abuse quotes by Paula Heller Garland
#37. You can't sweep something broken into a bag and call it whole. It takes repair. #Quote by Paula Heller Garland
Spousal Abuse quotes by Patricia Dsouza
#38. I can just conceive of the pit of despair, the notion of being powerless and the essence of existence through it entirely #Quote by Patricia Dsouza
Spousal Abuse quotes by Cleta Mitchell
#39. Bringing the IRS to heel can start with re-energizing and expanding congressional investigations and holding accountable those responsible for the targeting and other abuses. #Quote by Cleta Mitchell
Spousal Abuse quotes by Janis Tyler Johnson
#40. Women need total life support services for the mother as she and the family move through the crisis following disclosure. #Quote by Janis Tyler Johnson
Spousal Abuse quotes by Anonymous
#41. The wine is from God, but the drunkard is from the Devil. #Quote by Anonymous
Spousal Abuse quotes by Elona Washington
#42. Even with my bachelor's degree, I still felt more comfortable at the strip club than anywhere else. And that feeling hit me the very first time I walked through those doors. While I initially starting dancing to avoid eviction, I stayed because I felt more at home in the strip club than I did in college, at church and at my parent's. Not only was I accustomed to feeling degraded, I believed I didn't deserve any better or that any man would treat me better than the men at the club. #Quote by Elona Washington
Spousal Abuse quotes by Alison Miller
#43. As soon as realized that I was treating MPD clients, I read the few existing books on the condition, attended a workshop at the Justice Institute, and used some sexual abuse prevention money to organize a workshop where therapists could exchange information and educate each other about dissociation. There, I learnt something that I found really shocking. Many people
suffering from MPD had been severely abused throughout their childhood years by organized groups, including Satanic and other "dark-side" religious cults. Moreover, quite a few of them were still involved in those groups, although they were not aware of their involvement, because it was other "personalities" - dissociated parts of them - who went off to the groups' rituals. I was skeptical, to say the least. #Quote by Alison Miller
Spousal Abuse quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#44. When you give your master his letter, also give him this. And tell him that in the Red Desert, we do not abuse our disciples. #Quote by Sarah J. Maas
Spousal Abuse quotes by Sania Mirza
#45. Fitness is defined differently by everyone, but for me, the most important thing is being healthy. As tennis players, what we do is not the healthiest thing. We almost abuse our bodies. #Quote by Sania Mirza
Spousal Abuse quotes by Beverly Engel
#46. As a child you received messages from your family to keep your mouth shut and remain invisible. You also learned to become invisible in order to protect yourself. You no longer need to be invisible to survive. If people do not notice you, they may not abuse you, but they also will not love you or attend to your needs. Make yourself and your needs known. #Quote by Beverly Engel
Spousal Abuse quotes by Anne Sexton
#47. I am tearing the feathers out of the pillows,
waiting, waiting for Daddy to come home
and stuff me so full of our infected child
that I turn invisible, but married,
at last. #Quote by Anne Sexton
Spousal Abuse quotes by Adam Clarke
#48. I am an old man, and I here declare that I never knew them to be productive of any good in the worship of God, and have reason to believe that they are productive of much evil. Music as a science I esteem and admire, but instrumental music in the house of God I abominate and abhor. This is the abuse of music, and I here register my protest against all such corruption of the worship of the author of Christianity. #Quote by Adam Clarke
Spousal Abuse quotes by Patti Feuereisen
#49. Out of all the piles of dirt, garbage, and shit we have been handed, we can grow a patch of daisies. #Quote by Patti Feuereisen
Spousal Abuse quotes by Anna C. Salter
#50. Are Child Molesters Really Just Victims Themselves?
"All victims are offenders," one professional challenged me at a conference, "and all offenders are victims. How does your work address that?"
My work doesn't address that because I don't believe there's any evidence for that assertion. Obviously, not all victims are offenders, but it is also likely that most offenders weren't victims. The studies that find a high proportion of child molesters who were victims of child sexual abuse themselves are almost always based on self-report, and even there, study results differ dramatically. Studies show the number of child molesters who were themselves molested as children ranges from 22 percent in some studies to 82 percent in others.[101] #Quote by Anna C. Salter
Spousal Abuse quotes by Alan Bennett
#51. Closing a public library is child abuse, really, because it hinders child development. #Quote by Alan Bennett
Spousal Abuse quotes by Rodney Erickson
#52. We also want to make sure Penn State becomes a national leader in this whole area of child abuse prevention and treatment. #Quote by Rodney Erickson
