Strangeways Prison quotes by Maggie Stiefvater

Strangeways Prison quotes by Rebecca West
#5. Were I to go down into the market-place, armed with the powers of witchcraft, and take a peasant by the shoulders and whisper to him, 'In your lifetime, have you known peace?' wait for his answer, shake his shoulders and transform him into his father, and ask him the same question, and transform him in his turn to his father, I would never hear the word 'Yes,' if I carried my questioning of the dead back for a thousand years. I would always hear, 'No, there was fear, there were our enemies without, our rulers within, there was prison, there was torture, there was violent death. #Quote by Rebecca West
Strangeways Prison quotes by Deepak Chopra
#6. Now I realize that it isn't the miracle that creates the believer. Instead, we are all believers. We believe that the illusion of the material world is completely real. That belief is our only prison. It prevents us from making the journey into the unknown. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Strangeways Prison quotes by Bo Burnham
#7. They say it's the 'me' generation. It's not. The arrogance is taught, or it was cultivated. It's self-conscious. That's what it is. It's conscious of self. Social media - it's just the market's answer to a generation that demanded to perform, so the market said, here - perform. Perform everything to each other, all the time, for no reason. It's prison - it's horrific. It's performer and audience melded together. What do we want more than to lie in our bed at the end of the day and just watch our life as a satisfied audience member. I know very little about anything. But what I do know is that if you can live your life without an audience, you should do it. #Quote by Bo Burnham
Strangeways Prison quotes by Daniel Defoe
#8. I hear much of people's calling out to punish the guilty, but very few are concerned to clear the innocent. #Quote by Daniel Defoe
Strangeways Prison quotes by Debasish Mridha
#9. Why do you stay in the prison of stress when keys are in your hand? #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Strangeways Prison quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
#10. That bowl of soup - it was dearer than freedom, dearer than life itself, past, present, and future. #Quote by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Strangeways Prison quotes by Taryn Manning
#11. There are likable characters in prison. Sometimes the worst criminals are also some of the most charming people. #Quote by Taryn Manning
Strangeways Prison quotes by Carlo Rovelli
#12. I think that physics is about escaping the prison of the received thoughts and searching for novel ways of thinking the world, about trying to clear a bit the misty lake of insubstantial dreams, which reflect reality like the lake reflects the mountains. #Quote by Carlo Rovelli
Strangeways Prison quotes by Adrian McKinty
#13. The riot had taken on a beauty of its own now. Arcs of gasoline fire under the crescent moon. Crimson tracer in mystical parabolas. Phosphorescence from the barrels of plastic bullet guns. A distant yelling like that of men below decks in a torpedoed prison ship. The scarlet whoosh of Molotovs intersecting with exacting surfaces. Helicopters everywhere: their spotlights finding one another like lovers in the Afterlife.
And all this through a lens of oleaginous Belfast rain. #Quote by Adrian McKinty
Strangeways Prison quotes by Pope John Paul II
#14. The worst prison would be a closed heart. #Quote by Pope John Paul II
Strangeways Prison quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#15. Pardon ever follows sincere repentence. #Quote by Charles Spurgeon
Strangeways Prison quotes by Andrew Fastow
#16. I didn't set out to commit a crime. I certainly didn't set out to hurt anyone. When I was working at Enron, you know, I was kind of a hero, because I helped the company make its numbers every quarter. And I thought I was doing a good thing. I thought I was smart... but I wasn't. I wake up every morning, and I take out my prison ID card, which I have with me here today. And it makes certain that I remember all the people. I remember that I harmed so many people in what I did. It encourages me to try to do the little things that I can to make amends for what I did. #Quote by Andrew Fastow
Strangeways Prison quotes by Joy James
#17. Furthermore, it is natural for caring people to sympathize with and support those who resist being oppressed. However, when the white anti-imperialists do get involved in the resistance and are placed in prison, a racist government can discourage other whites from aligning themselves with Blacks in struggle by the severe, at times cruel, treatment it inflicts on anti-imperialists. #Quote by Joy James
Strangeways Prison quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
#18. The days rolled by in the camp - they were over before you could say "knife." But the years, they never rolled by; they never moved by a second. #Quote by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Strangeways Prison quotes by Ikechukwu Joseph
#19. Joseph went from kidnap experience to pit, to slavery, to prison then to PRIME MINISTER #Quote by Ikechukwu Joseph
Strangeways Prison quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#20. When freedom is in jeopardy, non-co-operation may be a duty and prison may be a palace. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Strangeways Prison quotes by Jason L. Riley
#21. The poverty argument is especially weak. In the 1950s, when segregation was legal, overt racism was rampant, and black poverty was much higher than today, black crime rates were lower and blacks comprised a smaller percentage of the prison population. And then there is the experience of other groups who endured rampant poverty, racial discrimination, and high unemployment without becoming overrepresented in the criminal justice system. #Quote by Jason L. Riley
Strangeways Prison quotes by Krista Alasti
#22. Why would Dad call you? I mean, you have to admit that he would have been better off calling the local prison and asking them to send out one of the convicted killers to come find me. - Shella #Quote by Krista Alasti
Strangeways Prison quotes by Bryan Stevenson
#23. Sentimentality about Lee's story grew even as the harder truths of the book took no root. The story of an innocent black man bravely defended by a white lawyer in the 1930s fascinated millions of readers, despite its uncomfortable exploration of false accusations of rape involving a white woman. Lee's endearing characters, Atticus Finch and his precocious daughter, Scout, captivated readers while confronting them with some of the realities of race and justice in the South. A generation of future lawyers grew up hoping to become the courageous Atticus, who at one point arms himself to protect the defenseless black suspect from an angry mob of white men looking to lynch him.

Today, dozens of legal organizations hand out awards in the fictional lawyer's name to celebrate the model of advocacy described in Lee's novel. What is often overlooked is that the black man falsely accused in the story was not successfully defended by Atticus. Tom Robinson, the wrongly accused black defendant, is found guilty. Later he dies when, full of despair, he makes a desperate attempt to escape from prison. He is shot seventeen times in the back by his captors, dying ingloriously but not unlawfully. #Quote by Bryan Stevenson
Strangeways Prison quotes by Laurie Penny
#24. Girls are better at this sort of labour, often called 'emotional labour', not because there's anything in the meat and matter of our living cells that makes us naturally better but because we're trained for it from birth. Trained to make other people feel good. Trained to serve the coffee, fill in the forms, organise the parties and wipe the table afterwards. Trained to be feisty, if we must, but not strong. To be bubbly, not funny. You must at no stage appear to have a body that functions in a normal human way, that pisses and shits and sweats and farts and falters. Decorate the prison of your body. Make yourself useful. Shut up and smile. #Quote by Laurie Penny
Strangeways Prison quotes by Aristotle.
#25. Justice is that virtue of the soul which is distributive according to desert. #Quote by Aristotle.
Strangeways Prison quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#26. And then it seemed to me that even in prison one might discover an immense life. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Strangeways Prison quotes by Jaden Smith
#27. When you live your whole life in a prison freedom can be so dull #Quote by Jaden Smith
Strangeways Prison quotes by Jamaica Kincaid
#28. I understood finding the place you are born in an unbearable prison and wanting something completely different from what you are familiar with, knowing it represents a haven. #Quote by Jamaica Kincaid
Strangeways Prison quotes by Silvina Ocampo
#29. What matters is what we write: that is what we are, not some puppet made up by those who talk and enclose us in a prison so different from our dreams. #Quote by Silvina Ocampo
Strangeways Prison quotes by Paul Halpern
#30. [C]ritics of Canadian securities regulators sometimes point out that a number of high-profile US securities cases have resulted in prison sentences for the offenders, while incarceration for Canadian securities law violators seems very rare...[A]s has often been noted, incarceration is far more frequent in the United States for crimes of all kinds, yet it is not usually suggested that this is proof that the United States is generally a safer place to live than Canada. #Quote by Paul Halpern
Strangeways Prison quotes by Rumi
#31. Are you searching for the river of your soul?
Then come out of your prison.
Leave the stream
and join the river
that flows into the ocean. #Quote by Rumi
Strangeways Prison quotes by Alan Alda
#32. During the first day, curious at having outsiders among them, a long stream of inmates came over and talked with me. Remarkably, according to what they told me, nearly every inmate in the prison didn't do it. Several thousand people had been locked up unjustly and, by an incredible coincidence, all in the same prison.
On the other hand, they knew an awful lot about how to knife somebody. #Quote by Alan Alda
Strangeways Prison quotes by William Shakespeare
#33. I had as lief have the foppery of freedom as the morality of imprisonment. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Strangeways Prison quotes by Jodi Meadows
#34. His skin smelled sour, like the prison, but somewhere under the filth, I caught notes of open fields and rainstorms and lightning-shot skies. #Quote by Jodi Meadows
Strangeways Prison quotes by P. J. O'Rourke
#35. Never steal anything so small that you'll have to go to an unpleasant city jail for it instead of a minimum-security federal tennis prison. #Quote by P. J. O'Rourke
Strangeways Prison quotes by Ahmed Ben Bella
#36. I spent 24 and a half years in prison #Quote by Ahmed Ben Bella
Strangeways Prison quotes by Seneca.
#37. This wretched body, the chain and prison of the soul, is tossed hither and thither; upon it punishment and pillage and disease wreak havoc: but the soul itself is holy and eternal, and it cannot be assailed with violence. #Quote by Seneca.
Strangeways Prison quotes by Jaymin Eve
#38. I huffed my way across the room to stand before the sexy mage. "Come on, let's get this over with." Jacob snorted.
"That's what all the girls say to Louis."

Eve, Jaymin (2015-01-29). Dragon Marked: Supernatural Prison #1 (p. 346). . Kindle Edition. #Quote by Jaymin Eve
Strangeways Prison quotes by Khalil Osiris
#39. Turn the cell into a classroom and the prison into a university #Quote by Khalil Osiris
Strangeways Prison quotes by Bryant McGill
#40. Fear is a prison where you are the jailer. Free yourself! #Quote by Bryant McGill
Strangeways Prison quotes by David Byrne
#41. Language as a Prison

The Philippines did have a written language before the Spanish colonists arrived, contrary to what many of those colonists subsequently claimed. However, it was a language that some theorists believe was mainly used as a mnemonic device for epic poems. There was simply no need for a European-style written language in a decentralized land of small seaside fishing villages that were largely self-sufficient.

One theory regarding language is that it is primarily a useful tool born out of a need for control. In this theory written language was needed once top-down administration of small towns and villages came into being. Once there were bosses there arose a need for written language. The rise of the great metropolises of Ur and Babylon made a common written language an absolute necessity - but it was only a tool for the administrators. Administrators and rulers needed to keep records and know names - who had rented which plot of land, how many crops did they sell, how many fish did they catch, how many children do they have, how many water buffalo? More important, how much then do they owe me? In this account of the rise of written language, naming and accounting seem to be language's primary "civilizing" function. Language and number are also handy for keeping track of the movement of heavenly bodies, crop yields, and flood cycles. Naturally, a version of local oral languages was eventually translated into symbols as well, and nonadmi #Quote by David Byrne
Strangeways Prison quotes by Umair Haque
#42. Yes, business really does change. 400 years ago, corporations were formed by royal decree. 300 years ago, many countries were powered by slave labour, or its closest moral equivalent. 200 years ago, debtors didn't go bankrupt, they went to prison. 100 years ago - well, business is largely the same as it was a century ago. And that's exactly the problem. Business hasn't changed, but today's array of tectonic global shocks demands a different, radically better kind of business. Yesterday's corporations visibly cannot meet today's economic challenges. #Quote by Umair Haque
Strangeways Prison quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
#43. The subsistence mentality of a person is a prison in which his personal joy is detained. If you want to live in joy, you don't live for yourself alone. Live for others too! #Quote by Israelmore Ayivor
Strangeways Prison quotes by John Boyne
#44. Cyril about Charles Avery:
'Charles was a banker. He was quite rich but he was always cheating on his taxes. He went to prison a few times for it. And when he was younger he always had a string of women on the go. But he was good fun. He was always telling me I wasn't a real Avery, though. I think that I could have done without that.'
'That sounds quite mean on his part.'
'I honestly don't think that he was trying to be cruel. It was more a matter of fact. Anyway, he's dead now. They both are. And I was with him when he went. I miss him still.' (p. 557) #Quote by John Boyne
Strangeways Prison quotes by John Donne
#45. Away thou fondling motley humorist,
Leave mee, and in this standing woodden chest,
Consorted with these few bookes, let me lye
In prison, and here be coffin'd, when I dye;
Here are Gods conduits, grave Divines; and here
Natures Secretary, the Philosopher;
And jolly Statesmen, which teach how to tie
The sinewes of a cities mistique bodie;
Here gathering Chroniclers, and by them stand
Giddie fantastique Poets of each land.
Shall I leave all this constant company,
And follow headlong, wild uncertaine thee? #Quote by John Donne
Strangeways Prison quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#46. Security without liberty is called prison. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Strangeways Prison quotes by Pam Houston
#47. There's this great Ron Carlson story, "A Note on the Type," and it's about this guy who keeps escaping from prison. He's really good at escaping, but he gets caught all the time, because he can't stop writing his name on underpasses where he's running from the law. And there's this whole beautiful paragraph about how to run is to write. And, you know, it's obviously about the writer's life. #Quote by Pam Houston
