“Life is ten percent what you experience and ninety percent how you respond to it.”

Frank Sinatra
“There are things about organized religion which I resent. Christ is revered as the Prince of Peace, but more blood has been shed in his name than any other figure in history. You show me one step forward in the name of religion, and I'll show you a hundred retrogressions…I'm for decency—period. I'm for anything and everything that bodes love and consideration for my fellow man. But when lip service to some mysterious deity permits bestiality on Wednesday and absolution on Sunday—count me out.”
Frank Sinatra

Tennessee Williams
“He acts like an animal, has an animal's habits! Eats like one, moves like one, talks like one! There's even something -sub-human -something not quite to the stage of humanity yet! Yes, something - ape-like about him, like one of those pictures I've seen in - anthropological studies! Thousands and thousands of years have passed him right by, and there he is - Stanley Kowalski - survivor of the Stone Age! Bearing the raw meat home from the kill in the jungle! And you - you here - waiting for him! Maybe he'll strike you or maybe grunt and kiss you! That is, if kisses have been discovered yet! Night falls and the other apes gather! There in the front of the cave, all grunting like him, and swilling and gnawing and hulking! His poker night! - you call it - this party of apes! Somebody growls - some creature snatches at something - the fight is on! God! Maybe we are a long way from beng made in God's image, but Stella - my sister - there has been some progress since then! Such things as art - as poetry and music - such kinds of new light have come into the world since then! In some kinds of people some tendered feelings have had some little beginning! That we have got to make grow! And cling to, and hold as our flag! In this dark march towards what-ever it is we're approaching . . . Don't - don't hang back with the brutes!”
Tennessee Williams, A Streetcar Named Desire

Angelica Hopes
“In a feast of fame and talks,
Scandal flashing, raising tongue and brows.
In a blast of bombing and power play,
Fear and death dig more revenge.

In a forgotten continent,
Famine and drought devour lives.
In an unfortunate eye of a rebelling weather,
Crashing homes, leaving many in devastation and desperation.

In a country shaking with violence,
Innocent victims cry for justice and peace.
In a home shaking with turmoil,
Humble patient, hiding voice wants to be heard.

In a tick of a second,
A new breathe of life beats!
To belong in this world.
Constantly changing, decaying or improving?

In a snap of innovation:
Life goes big leap!
Regression somewhere unseen,
But felt in a slow, long run.”
Angelica Hopes, Rhythm of a Heart, Music of a Soul

Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz
“Nature has established patterns originating in the return of events, but only for the most part. New illnesses flood the human race, so that no matter how many experiments you have done on corpses, you have not thereby immposd a limit on the nature of events so that in the future they could not vary.”
Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz

“In another thirty to fifty years, the demand for cheap labor will have produced even more machines over the employment of actual humans. And in that time frame, humans will have lost their voice, their power, all freedoms, and all worth. It is inevitable that machines will one day become the ultimate enemies of mankind. We are not evolving or progressing with our technology, only regressing. Technology is our friend today, but will be our enemy in the future.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“Regression lives on, not because of the unavailability of a better option but because of the inertia and fear of change. A known devil is NOT better than an unknown one because there is a fifty percent chance that unknown may not be a devil at all.”
EverSkeptic

“The tyranny of maternal duty is not new, but it has become considerably more pronounced with the rise of naturalism, and it has thus far produced neither a matriarchy nor sexual equality, but rather a regression in women's status.”
Élisabeth Badinter, The Conflict: How Modern Motherhood Undermines the Status of Women

Stephanie  Arnold
“You only live once. Maybe twice.”
Stephanie Arnold, 37 Seconds: Dying Revealed Heaven's Help--A Mother's Journey

Criss Jami
“History fancies itself linear - but yields to a cyclical temptation.”
Criss Jami, Healology

“We stand the risk of regression, because you refused to take risks. So life demands risks.”
Sunday Adelaja

“Our evolution depends on our memory. If we keep forgetting the mistakes of the past, only to keep repeating them, then we will never change. Humanity will never move forward, spiritually or morally, to become superior beings.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“Basic misunderstandings about DID encountered in the therapeutic community include the following:

° The expectation that all clients with DID will present in a Sybil-like manner, with obvious switching and extreme changes in personality.
° That therapists create DID in their clients.
° That DID clients have very little control over their internal systems and can be expected to stay in the mental health system indefinitely.
° That alter personalities, especially child alters, are simply regressive states associated with anxiety or that switching represents a psychotic episode.

Anyone who experiences dissociation on a regular basis knows better, however. DID is not only disruptive to everyday life but is also confusing and, at times, frightening.”
Deborah Bray Haddock

“In today's world, honesty has unfortunately morphed into an extremely expensive hobby...and is no more a virtue that it once was. By the same token, not everyone has what it takes to pay the price for indulging in it and maintaining it, relentlessly, under all circumstances.”
Mamur Mustapha

“The recession and regression of any society are always an indication of how poorly the citizens of that country understand the value of time.”
Sunday Adelaja, How To Become Great Through Time Conversion: Are you wasting time, spending time or investing time?

Amit Abraham
“I don't like regressing - I move beyond. Life belongs to the future and I believe in creating History rather than visiting and revisiting the past.”
Amit Abraham

“There is a human reification needing
an eschatological regression.”
Marieta Maglas- Eschatological Regression
