Jesse W. Rowlings replied to Josh Willems's discussion Leather Jacket Dilemma
"The jacket actually looks great, you rock it. Thus my opinion is: who cares what gender it was made for? It looks like it was made for you, and it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks."

"I believe the main point of the pro-choice leftists is that any woman should be free to do whatever they want, so unless we are talking idiotic people here, any pro-choice, extreme leftist is going to be supportive of the girl's decision,…"

Jesse W. Rowlings replied to Zachary Stucki's discussion Quotes
"don't take this as pedantic, it's just a common error that no one knows they're making - "quotes" is a verb. "quotations" is the word you're looking for. :) my favourite quotation, though, is this one from…"

Jesse W. Rowlings replied to Jesse W. Rowlings's discussion To defer or not to defer?
"yeah, that's some of my reasoning for the whole deferring option, as with some savings it will be a lot easier to move out than without savings. and i actually understand what you mean, just an issue of maturity/perceived maturity, good point…"

"easy bits first: 16 credit points per degree per term, so 32 per term. two terms... 64 credit points. secondly, it's definitely true that it isn't the tuition that's expensive, it's honestly not that bad, and i won't be…"

Rebekah replied to Jesse W. Rowlings's discussion To defer or not to defer?
"When I look back at my time in school, it isn't so much the actual tuition that was expensive, but just living - rent, food, petrol, clothes, etc. - without income. The same thing is a threat after uni, that is, being made redundant, and…"

Quote
"I have lived through much, and now I think I have found what is needed for happiness. A quiet secluded life in the country, with the possibility of being useful to people to whom it is easy to do good, and who are not accustomed to have it done to them; then work which one hopes may be of some use; then rest, nature, books, music, love for one's neighbor—such is my idea of happiness. And then, on top of all that, you for a mate, and children perhaps—what can more the heart of man desire?" - Family Happiness - Leo Tolstoy

"Fear most the prayer of the oppressed." - Arabic proverb.

"Never half ass two things, whole ass one thing." - Ron Swanson.
