Why Is It That We Are More Comfortable Seeing Two Men Holding Guns Than Holding Hands?

A collection of our favourite inspirational quotes celebrating freedom, acceptance and love: “Why is it that, as a culture, we are more comfortable seeing two men holding guns than holding hands?” – Ernest Gaines ‘A human being is a part of a whole, called by us, universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest…a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This illusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” Albert Einstein “Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be a made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself.” Harvey Fierstein “If you’re going to be passionate about something, be passionate about learning. If you’re going to fight something, fight for those in need. If you’re going to question something, question authority. If you’re going to lose something, lose your inhibitions. If you’re going to gain something, gain respect and confidence. And if you’re going to hate something, hate the false idea that you are not capable of your dreams” – Daniel Golston “You have a wisdom inside you – listen for it. You have a light inside you – feel its glow. You have the power to speak and act and make things manifest in the world – let your wisdom and light guide you as you do.” Michael Neill “The important thing is not the object of love, but of the emotion itself.” Gore Vidal “There’s the illusion that homosexuals have sex and heterosexuals fall in love. That’s completely untrue. Everybody wants to be loved.” Boy George
