Abused women Quotes

I saw everything from starvation and neglect to where dogs were chained to trees and had arrows shot through them and even cats set on fire. During my investigations, more times than not children or women living in the home had also been abused.

Barbara Leff

The country and the Congress were misled into war. I regret that we were not given the truth; as I said more than a year ago, knowing what we know now, I would not have gone to war in Iraq. And knowing now the full measure of the Bush Administrationís duplicity and incompetence, I doubt there are many members of Congress who would give them the authority they abused so badly. I know I would not.

Senator John Kerry

If a man's character is to be abused, say what you will, there's nobody like a relation to do the business.

William Makepeace Thackery

For there are some people who can live without wild things about them and the earth beneath their feet, and some who cannot. To those of us who, in a city, are always aware of the abused and abased earth below the pavement, walking on the grass, watching the flight of birds, or finding the first spring dandelion are the rights as old and unalienable as the rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We belong to no cult. We are not Nature Lovers. We don't love nature any more than we love breathing. Nature is simply something indispensable, like air and light and water, that we accept as necessary to living, and the nearer we can get to it the happier we are.

Louise Dickinson Rich†

You couldn't be that good and not know it, somewhere in your secret heart, however much you'd been abused into affecting public humility.

Lois McMaster Bujold

Everyone is an abused child, if you think about what governments do.

Tim Roth

Adults with schizophrenia are not attractive in the way that an abandoned baby or an abused dog is.

Paula Sellmeyer

The man who first abused his fellows with swear-words instead of bashing their brains out with a club should be counted among those who laid the foundations of civilization.

Sir John Denham

It is better a man should be abused than forgotten.

Samuel Johnson

There are two modes of establishing our reputation: to be praised by honest men, and to be abused by rogues. It is best, however, to secure the former, because it will invariably be accompanied by the latter.

Charles Caleb Colton

Books are the best of things, well used; abused, among the worst. What is the right use? What is the one end, which all means go to effect? They are for nothing but to inspire.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

It is the wit and policy of sin to hate those we have abused.

Sir William Davenant

And again, don't misunderstand. I am not here bashing people who are homosexuals, who are lesbians, who are bisexual, who are transgender. We need to have profound compassion for people who are dealing with the very real issue of sexual dysfunction in their life, and sexual identity disorders. This is a very real issue. It's not funny, it's sad. Any of you who have members of your family that are in the lifestyle we have a member of our family that is. This is not funny. It's a very sad life. It's part of Satan, I think, to say this is "gay". It's anything but gay. It's profoundly sad to recognize that almost all, if not all, individuals who have gone into the lifestyle have been abused at one time in their life, either by a male or by a female. There's been profound hurt and profound things that have happened in almost all of their lives.
