Michele Weiner-Davis quotes

  • you can't be value free when it comes to marriage

  • Grave authors say, and witty poets sing, That honest wedlock is a glorious thing.

  • The whole bible is the working out of the relationship between God and man. God is not a dictator barking out orders and demanding silent obedience. Were it so, there would be no relationship at all. No real relationship goes just one way. There are always two active parties. We must have reverence and awe for God, and honor for the chain of tradition. But that doesn't mean we can't use new information to help us read the holy texts in new ways.

  • There's something to be said in favor of working in isolation in the real world.

  • I think vestigially there's a synesthete in me, but not like a real one who immediately knows what colour Wednesday is.

  • I think fiction can help us find everything. You know, I think that in fiction you can say things and in a way be truer than you can be in real life and truer than you can be in non-fiction. There's an accuracy to fiction that people don't really talk about - an emotional accuracy.

  • The struggle itself towards the heights is enough to fill a man's heart. One must imagine Sisyphus happy.

  • Great people do things before they're ready. They do things before they know they can do it. Doing what you're afraid of, getting out of your comfort zone, taking risks like that - that is what life is. You might be really good. You might find out something about yourself that's really special and if you're not good, who cares? You tried something. Now you know something about yourself.

  • To the girls that gave me a hard time in high school. I want to say thank you. This is a victory for all the nerds out there.

  • I have a hard time accepting diversity as a synonym for justice. Diversity is a corporate strategy.
