Famous quotes containing the words activities, political and/or experience:

    That is the real pivot of all bourgeois consciousness in all countries: fear and hate of the instinctive, intuitional, procreative body in man or woman. But of course this fear and hate had to take on a righteous appearance, so it became moral, said that the instincts, intuitions and all the activities of the procreative body were evil, and promised a reward for their suppression. That is the great clue to bourgeois psychology: the reward business.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    My passion strengthens daily to quit political turmoil, and retire into the bosom of my family, the only scene of sincere and pure happiness.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

    I shall not want Society in Heaven,
    Lucretia Borgia shall be my Bride;
    Her anecdotes will be more amusing
    Than Pipit’s experience could provide.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
