Trucker Wives quotes by Colleen Chen
#1. Oh," she breathed. "How silly I've been."
"How silly we've all been," said another of the wives. "We shouldn't be fighting each other. Our problems don't lie in any of the relationships we have with each other."
"The problem is our entire social system," chimed in another. #Quote by Colleen Chen
Trucker Wives quotes by Aditi Mathur Kumar
#2. The situations we Army wives
have to deal with are not normal ones at all. The nomadic life
we lead, moving from station to station, being separated from
our husbands for long stretches of time, and the constant fear
that we live with if our husbands are anywhere near the sensitive
areas in the country ... #Quote by Aditi Mathur Kumar
Trucker Wives quotes by Billy Graham
#3. It's amazing how we can hurt others, especially those close to us ... subtle and not-so-subtle ways in which wives belittle husbands and vice versa. #Quote by Billy Graham
Trucker Wives quotes by William McFee
#4. The wives who are not deserted, but who have to feed and clothe and comfort and scold and advise, are the true objects of commiseration; wives whose existence is given over to a ceaseless vigil of cantankerous affection. #Quote by William McFee
Trucker Wives quotes by Angelina Grimke
#5. Are we bereft of citizenship because we are mothers, wives and daughters of a mighty people? Have women no country
no interests staked in public weal
no liabilities in common peril
no partnership in a nation's guilt and shame? #Quote by Angelina Grimke
Trucker Wives quotes by Frank Beddor
#6. After the temper subsides and one has a moment to calmly reflect, it isn't uncommon for declarations shouted in a fit of rage to strike one as untrue, and because they may have been hurtful to family, friends, lovers, husbands, or wives, one wishes them unsaid. #Quote by Frank Beddor
Trucker Wives quotes by Satoshi Kanazawa
#7. Here's a little thought experiment. Imagine that, on September 11, 2001, when the Twin Towers came down, the President of the United States was not George W. Bush, but Ann Coulter. What would have happened then? On September 12, President Coulter would have ordered the US military forces to drop 35 nuclear bombs throughout the Middle East, killing all of our actual and potential enemy combatants, and their wives and children. On September 13, the war would have been over and won, without a single American life lost. #Quote by Satoshi Kanazawa
Trucker Wives quotes by Heber C. Kimball
#8. You might as well deny 'Mormonism,' and turn away from it, as to oppose the plurality of wives. #Quote by Heber C. Kimball
Trucker Wives quotes by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield
#9. It is the popular misconception of marriage as a mere social convention or quaint tradition invented by the brain of man which has led to the denigrating of this holy relation, the multiplication of unspeakable immorality, the common unrest between husbands and wives, and the gradual disintegration of society and civilization. For if marriage exists merely by human authority then men and women may do with it or conduct themselves in it as they please. They may redefine it, or they may abandon it altogether. But if marriage is a divine institution, then it is governed by a higher authority. It becomes, then, a matter of obedience, and the conduct of husbands and wives within marriage is a conduct for which they must give their account to God. The original institution of marriage is therefore basic to our understanding of marriage, our estimation of marriage, and our right behavior in marriage. #Quote by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield
Trucker Wives quotes by David Letterman
#10. Osama bin Laden was living in that compound with three wives. It's like he was Newt Gingrich. #Quote by David Letterman
Trucker Wives quotes by Steven Erikson
#11. A bludgeon of wives (surely that must be the plural assignation)! #Quote by Steven Erikson
Trucker Wives quotes by David Letterman
#12. What we know about Osama Bin Laden is this: he's worth $300 million, he has five wives and twenty-six kids
and he hates Americans for their "excessive" lifestyle. #Quote by David Letterman
Trucker Wives quotes by Roshani Chokshi
#13. Although I had never envisioned marriage, I had thought of love. Not the furtive love I heard muffled in the corners or rooms of some of the harem wives. What I wanted was a connection, a shared heartbeat that kept rhythm across oceans and worlds. Not some alliance cobbled out of war. I didn't want the prince from the folktales or some milk-skinned, honey-eyed youth who said his greetings and proclaimed his love in the same breath. I wanted a love thick with time, as inscrutable as if a lathe had carved it from night and as familiar as the marrow in my bones. #Quote by Roshani Chokshi
Trucker Wives quotes by Nien Cheng
#14. One of the most ugly aspects of life in Communist China during the Mao Zedong era was the Party's demand that people inform on each other routinely and denounce each other during political campaigns. This practice had a profoundly destructive effect on human relationships. Husbands and wives became guarded with each other, and parents were alienated from their children. The practice inhibited all forms of human contact, so that people no longer wanted to have friends. It also encouraged secretiveness and hypocrisy. To protect himself, a man had to keep his thoughts to himself. When he was compelled to speak, often lying was the only way to protect himself and his family. #Quote by Nien Cheng
Trucker Wives quotes by William Shakespeare
#15. Let husbands know Their wives have sense like them. They see, and smell, And have their palates both for sweet and sour, As husbands have. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Trucker Wives quotes by Adam Yauch
#16. I want to say a little something that's long overdue, the disrespect to women has got to be through. To all the mothers and the sisters and the wives and friends, I wanna offer my love and respect till the end. #Quote by Adam Yauch
Trucker Wives quotes by David Letterman
#17. Congratulations are in order for Woody Allen - he and Soon Yi have a brand new baby daughter. It's all part of Woody's plan to grow his own wives. #Quote by David Letterman
Trucker Wives quotes by Catherine Anderson
#18. Oh, yes, how remiss of me. I forgot that you can have an entire herd of wives. #Quote by Catherine Anderson
Trucker Wives quotes by Dean Koontz
#19. There's lots of law these days, but not much justice. Celebrities murder their wives and go free. A mother kills her children, and the news people on TV say she's the victim and want you to send money to her lawyers. When everything's upside down like this, what fool just sits back and thinks justice will prevail? #Quote by Dean Koontz
Trucker Wives quotes by Guillermo Jiménez
#20. A complete history of sexual scandal in Washington will probably never be written, because the public does not want to read a 20,000 page book that needs to be updated weekly (note to self: maybe they DO -- idea for next book). From the earliest days of the Republic, when our first Ambassador, Benjamin Franklin, fondled and groped the awestruck wives of his French hosts while on mission to Paris, shortly to be succeeded by the even-more-amorous Thomas Jefferson, who broke an ankle in the Louvre while leaping to an assignation with yet another married Frenchwoman, all the way down to our contemporary satyrs, the priapic Kennedys, Wilbur "Fanne Fox" Mills, "Slobbering Bob" Packwood, Bill "I did not have sexual relations with that woman" Clinton, etc., our political leaders have repeatedly proven to be incredibly horny old goats. #Quote by Guillermo Jiménez
Trucker Wives quotes by D. Michael Quinn
#21. Joseph F. Smith probably authorized Apostles Clawson and Cowley to marry their plural wives after the second Manifesto of 1904, since he did authorize a close friend to perform one plural marriage as late as 1906, and o.k.'d another one that occurred in 1907. #Quote by D. Michael Quinn
Trucker Wives quotes by E.L. James
#22. I like to make the odd impromptu visit. It keeps management on their toes, wives in their place. You know. He shrugs, his mouth set in an arrogant line. #Quote by E.L. James
Trucker Wives quotes by Ronald Perelman
#23. The reality is that I surround myself with very smart, very strong people - including my ex-wives. #Quote by Ronald Perelman
Trucker Wives quotes by Bear Grylls
#24. Meanwhile, Trucker and I, through all of this, had been renting that cottage together, on a country estate six miles outside of Bristol. We were paying a tiny rent, as the place was so rundown, with no heating or modern conveniences. But I loved it.
The cottage overlooked a huge green valley on one side and had beautiful woodland on the other. We had friends around most nights, held live music parties, and burned wood from the dilapidated shed as heating for the solid-fuel stove.
Our newly found army pay was spent on a bar tab in the local pub.
We were probably the tenants from hell, as we let the garden fall into disrepair, and burned our way steadily through the wood of the various rotting sheds in the garden. But heh, the landlord was a miserable old sod with a terrible reputation, anyway!
When the grass got too long we tried trimming it--but broke both our string trimmers. Instead we torched the garden. This worked a little too well, and we narrowly avoided burning down the whole cottage as the fire spread wildly.
What was great about the place was that we could get in and out of Bristol on our 100 cc motorbikes, riding almost all the way on little footpaths through the woods--without ever having to go on any roads.
I remember one night, after a fun evening out in town, Trucker and I were riding our motorbikes back home. My exhaust started to malfunction--glowing red, then white hot--before letting out one massive backfire and grinding to a h #Quote by Bear Grylls
Trucker Wives quotes by Brigham Young
#25. Brother Cannon remarked that people wondered how many wives and children I had. He may inform them that I shall have wives and children by the million, and glory, and riches, and power, and dominion, and kingdom after kingdom, and reign triumphantly #Quote by Brigham Young
Trucker Wives quotes by Atticus Poetry
#26. We all wear masks,
some with makeup
some with smiles
some with wives or husbands
cars or clothes
we hide from the world
and from ourselves
we hide from our truths
behind our eyes
running always from our real
but somewhere there
where truth meets courage
we are waiting to be found #Quote by Atticus Poetry
Trucker Wives quotes by Michael D. O'Brien
#27. Theophilos, the light of reason that we both reverence is not a god. Neither does the highest development of the human mind confer divinity upon us. We may quote Aristotle one moment and in the next find ourselves betraying our wives and children - for the sake of passion, in the name of love - and not know how we arrived at that lamentable state. Reason is a gift of God but of itself cannot ennoble a man. #Quote by Michael D. O'Brien
Trucker Wives quotes by Richard D. Phillips
#28. For our marriages to regain the love and unity God designed them to have, it is not merely a matter of wives submitting to their husbands in the Lord. Husbands, in fact, have the first and greatest responsibility. As we gain insight about our wives through our shared lives together and our attentive
and cherishing interest in the affairs of their hearts, we must nourish our wives with God's Word, and with our own encouraging and upbuilding words informed by Scripture. #Quote by Richard D. Phillips
Trucker Wives quotes by Roshani Chokshi
#29. You have made your request, what about mine?"
"I am not the one withholding secrets."
He smiled and I stared at him for a moment. When he smiled, his severe face softened into something beautiful. I wanted to see it again.
"On the contrary, I am the one who has no choice. You, on the other hand, do."
"What do you want from me?"
He reached out, fingers sliding across the length of my hair.
"Some strands of your hair."
Some of the courtiers in Bharata used to tie their wives' hair around their wrists when they traveled. It was a sign of love and faith. To remain connected to the person you love, even if it was just by a circlet of hair.
"May I?" asked Amar.
I nodded. With a small knife, Amar deftly clipped a number of strands. Quickly, he twirled them into a bracelet and slipped it onto his wrist. There was another bracelet on his hand that I had not noticed until now. A simple strap of black leather tied into an elegant knot.
"Thank you for this," he said, pulling his sleeve over the other strap.
"It's nothing," I said, trying for lightness.
"And yet I would trade everything for it," he said. There was no tease in his voice. Nothing but a strange straightforwardness, like he'd never said anything more honest in his entire life. #Quote by Roshani Chokshi
Trucker Wives quotes by Bill Maher
#30. Mitt Romney comes from a Mormon background. I don't know how many wives he has. I'm not saying that I believe in that, I'm just saying he was born on a Mormon compound. I'm not a 'Wifer' but for some reason he's never shown his original marriage certificate. #Quote by Bill Maher
Trucker Wives quotes by Zalman Schachter-Shalomi
#31. This (the tendency to revive the old, and just stay with the old) is true not just of Habad but of Hassidim in generally, whether they are in Williamsburg or Mea She'arim. They are pouring all their energies into reliving an anachronism, so much so that there is no energy left over to live in the present. This attempt at living out an anachronism prevents them, not only from interchanging with the world around them, but even from praying properly, or studying, let alone from perceiving the presence of their children or their wives." (SS: understanding what they need in the presence time and generation).
"I'm not anti-tradition. On the contrary, I'll use anything that will help me get off. I've got a great deal invested in the materials of civilization, like language and vocabulary - booba, zeida, cholent, tallis - they're deeply embedded in the core of my brain, attached to my thalamus, not to the cortex. It would be foolish to deny that they're not part of my make-up. But, if someone says that I must believe in the God who was active at the time of Moses, or Yohannan ben Zakai, or the Baal Shem Tov, my answer is no. #Quote by Zalman Schachter-Shalomi
Trucker Wives quotes by Lisa Tuttle
#32. Women are generally responsible for all the cooking and planning of meals in private households, but I have never known any to bother about "proper meals" without a man around. Left to ourselves, we glory in "feasting" - standing at the kitchen table, or wrapped in blankets before the fire - on whatever wild assortment we can forage from the larder, or delight in a "nursery tea" of soft-boiled eggs with bread and butter; or dine on tea and cakes, or apples and cheese, while reading."
The Curious Affair of the Dead Wives #Quote by Lisa Tuttle
Trucker Wives quotes by Jane Welsh Carlyle
#33. People who are so dreadfully "devoted" to their wives are so apt, from mere habit, to get devoted to other people's wives as well. #Quote by Jane Welsh Carlyle
Trucker Wives quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#34. You've told a good story in a skillful manner. I like it that you haven't moralized about your heroine's mistakes. You've made it difficult for the reader not to sympathize with her."
"I sympathize with her," Amanda said frankly. "I've always thought it would be the worst kind of horror to be trapped in a loveless marriage. So many women are forced to marry because of pure economics. If more women were able to support themselves, there would be fewer reluctant brides and unhappy wives."
"Why, Miss Briars," he said softly. "How unconventional of you."
She countered his amusement with a perplexed frown. "It's only sensible, really."
He realized suddenly that this was the key to understanding her. Amanda was so doggedly practical that she was willing to discard the hypocrisies and stale social attitudes that most people accepted without thinking. Why, indeed, should a woman marry just because it was the expected thing to do, if she were able to choose otherwise?
"Perhaps most women think it is easier to marry than support themselves," he said, deliberately provoking her.
"Easier?" she snorted. "I've never seen a shred of evidence that spending the rest of one's days in domestic drudgery is any easier than working at some trade. What women need is more education, more choices, and then they will be able to consider options for themselves other than marriage. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Trucker Wives quotes by Elizabeth Taylor
#35. I suppose when they reach a certain age some men are afraid to grow up. It seems the older the men get, the younger their new wives get. #Quote by Elizabeth Taylor
Trucker Wives quotes by Neale Sourna
#36. I believe in romance with bite, sex with enthusiasm, and a full range of emotions from cave to sky that would make 'Heathcliff' and 'Mr. Darcy' fall to their knees in full passion. I believe in romantic erotica that is exciting and invigorating for both men and women. My readers share my books with their lovers. They can't get my books back from their wives. Or husbands. #Quote by Neale Sourna
Trucker Wives quotes by Karan Mahajan
#37. And you know what happens when a bomb goes off? The truth about people comes out. Men leave their children and run away. Shopkeepers push aside wives and try to save their cash. People come and loot the shops. A blast reveals the truth about places. Don't forget what you're doing is noble. #Quote by Karan Mahajan
Trucker Wives quotes by Douglas Northrop
#38. Still other rumors held that the ultimate aim of Bolshevik policy, seen in the combination of unveiling and collectivization, was to have all women held in common. In the kolkhoz, peasants ware warned, men and women slept together under giant blanket, and wives became common property. #Quote by Douglas Northrop
Trucker Wives quotes by Helen Simonson
#39. Men these days expect their wives to be as dazzling as their mistresses."
That's shocking," said the Major. "How on earth will they tell them apart? #Quote by Helen Simonson
