Image Quotes about Conditioning




Germaine Greer - After centuries of conditioning of the female into the condition of perpetual girlishness called femininity, we cannot remember what femaleness is. Though feminists have been arguing for years that there is a self-defining female energy, and a female libido that is not expressed merely in response to demands by the male, and a female way of being and of experiencing the world, we are still not close to understanding what it might be. Yet every mother who has held a girl child in her arms has known that she was different from a boy child and that she would approach the reality around her in a different way. She is a female and she will die female, and though many centuries should pass, archaeologists would identify her skeleton as the remains of a female creature.

Jim Johnston  - [Without electricity, there was no air conditioning. Johnston withstood hot, sticky days, with temperatures rising into the 90s.] The heat index made it above 100 degrees. Boredom is the killer here, ... By 11 a.m. every day, it's too hot, and by 8 p.m., you have to go to sleep because, without electricity, it's dark and there's nothing to do. I tossed and turned until I fell asleep around 3 a.m., when it finally cooled down to a humid 75 degrees. Then I was up at 6 a.m. again.
