It Once Was Said

I collect quotes and am running out of notebooks and post-it notes to write them down on... hence the creation of of this tumblr. It's a place for me to keep track of all the quotes I come across.

Feel free to submit quotes of your own - just keep them relatively clean.

Enjoy!

The institution of marriage is not under attack as a result of the President’s words. Marriage was under attack years ago by men who viewed women as property and children as trophies of sexual prowess. Marriage is under attack by low wages, high incarceration, unfair tax policy, unemployment, and lack of education. Marriage is under attack by clergy who proclaim monogamy yet think nothing of stepping outside the bonds of marriage to have multiple affairs with “preaching groupies.”
