Diana, Princess of Wales July 1, 1961-August 31, 1997


The quest for perfection our society demands can leave the individual gasping for breath at every turn. This pressure, inevitably extends into the way we look. Eating disorders...show how an individual can turn the nourishment of the body into a painful attack on themselves.


~Diana, Princess of Whales, speaking about her struggle with bulimia

Two things stand like stone--kindness in another's trouble, courage in your own.

~Adam L. Gordon as quoted by Diana, Princess of Whales

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
