Quotes that Gave me Pause

I remember the day I saw this quote for the first time, it was hilarious but after bouts of laughter I gave it deeper thought and realised it was more of a ‘Who told you the grass on the other side is greener?”

Though we have the courage to raise our daughters more like our Sons,
We’ve rarely had the courage to raise our sons like our daughters.

                                        Gloria Steinem

This quote made me realise that we are doing a great disservice to our boys, we put them in huge societal binders without giving them room to find themselves because society might say they are too feminine or even God forbid ..gay

The last quote for the day,
Saw this quote on a day I was quite down and wondering the next step to take, it was like an angel was sent to minister to me personally.

I know you are Sad, so I won’t tell you to have a good day. Instead, I advise you to simply have a day. Stay alive, feed yourself, wear comfortable clothes and don’t give up on yourself just yet. It will get better. Until then, have a day.

ARGUMENTS ARE EXTREMELY VULGAR

Saw this quote and I’ve been trying to make sense of it but its bogus. I can understand majority of people thinking the same way hence we are able to have social norms & regulations.  But I believe he was also being sarcastic and was indirectly mocking those who believe that those with a different opinion are not good (that mentally sick) and should be corrected/treated.

What are your thoughts anyway?

Favourite quotes by Voltaire: There are Truths which are not for all Men……

IT IS DANGEROUS TO BE RIGHT WHEN THE GOVERNMENT IS WRONG

THERE ARE TRUTHS WHICH ARE NOT FOR ALL MEN, NOR FOR ALL TIMES

image

Every man is guilty of all the good he did not do.

The most originalminds borrowed from one another. Thus, almost everything is imitation

image

MEN WILL ALWAYS BE MAD, AND THOSE WHO THINK THEY CAN CURE THEM ARE THE MADDEST OF THEM ALL.

And this last quote (and picture above) led me to the conclusion that Voltaire must have definitely been a crazed mind or was he just speaking the truths we either do not realise or just fail to acknowledge?
