TASLIMA NASREEN/NASRIN - Favourite Quotations

Taslima Nasrin 

Favourite Quotations 
''Freedom is always and exclusively freedom for the one who thinks differently.'' Rosa Luxemburg . ''When the Nazis came for the communists, I remained silent; I was not a communist. When they locked up the social democrats, I remained silent; I was not a social democrat. When they came for the trade unionists, I did not speak out; I was not a trade unionist. When they came for the Jews, I remained silent; I was not a Jew. When they came for me, there was no one left to speak out.'' Martin Niemöller . . ''Feminism is hated because women are hated. Anti-feminism is a direct expression of misogyny; it is the political defense of women hating.'' Andrea Dworkin , ''Woman is not born: she is made. In the making, her humanity is destroyed. She becomes symbol of this, symbol of that: mother of the earth, slut of the universe; but she never becomes herself because it is forbidden for her to do so.'' Andrea Dworkin. . “A man can be a hero if he is a scientist, or a soldier, or a drug addict, or a disc jockey, or a crummy mediocre politician. A man can be a hero because he suffers and despairs; or because he thinks logically and analytically; or because he is ''sensitive';' or because he is cruel. Wealth establishes a man as a hero, and so does poverty. Virtually any circumstance in a man's life will make him a hero to some group of people and has a mythic rendering in the culture / in literature, art, theater, or the daily newspapers.” Andrea Dworkin . . 'We'll never solve the feminization of power until we solve the masculinity of wealth.'' Gloria Steinem . . ''I have yet to hear a man ask for advice on how to combine marriage and a career.'' Gloria Steinem. . ''Faith is the great cop-out, the great excuse to evade the need to think and evaluate evidence. Faith is belief in spite of, even perhaps because of, the lack of evidence.'' Richard Dawkins . ''Religion convinced the world that there's an invisible man in the sky who watches everything you do. And there's 10 things he doesn't want you to do or else you'll go to a burning place with a lake of fire until the end of eternity. But he loves you!'' George Carlin .   ''Although people will criticize Islam in private, they know that to do so publicly, in other words, to be honest about their feelings, would instantly make them racists and Islamophobes and Nazi's and disgusting Imperialist ethno-centrist facist bastards grinding their jackboots into the faces of the innocent and the weak. So, best not to make a fuss... What's that, you want to destroy our corrupt society? Well, that's our fault, not yours. Here, have some more money.'' Pat Condell . .
