Holbrook

Soapbox Quotes By Andrew O'Hagan

Soapbox Quotes By Jarrid Wilson

Hate the sin, not the sinner" isn't working...I encourage you to instead "Love the sinner, not the sin."

I can't ever recall a person who came to faith because of hate. Let's start a movement of people who are willing to take hate out of the equation and love people regardless of their sins — Jarrid Wilson

Soapbox Quotes By Jeremy Renner

I think cinema should provoke thoughts, sure, but using it as I soapbox I think is the wrong place.

Soapbox Quotes By Nikki Sixx

I am not a preacher. I don't want to stand on a soapbox and tell people, "Don't drink. Don't use drugs." With my kids, I say "Don't drink. Don't do drugs." But when they turn 21, they can drink. I hope they never use drugs, but people make their own decisions. When they're old enough, they are going to have the chance to make their own decisions. I just hope I have given them enough love and support, and the ability to come and talk to me if they need to. — Nikki Sixx

Soapbox Quotes By Jenji Kohan

I believe in the power of media. I really do. It's my soapbox.

Soapbox Quotes By Anthony Horowitz

Soapbox Quotes By Becky Albertalli

Like, this whole Molly thing with the secret crushes that go nowhere. I'm over it." "Oh, you're over it?" My throat tightens. "Uh, I'm sorry boys don't like me." "That is such bullshit, Molly. You don't even talk to them." Here we go. Cassie's soapbox: the fact that I've had twenty-six crushes and exactly zero kisses. Apparently, it's because I need to woman up. If I like a guy, I'm supposed to tell him. Maybe in Cassie's world, you can do that and have it end in making out. But I'm not so sure it works that way for fat girls. — Becky Albertalli

Soapbox Quotes By Jon Bon Jovi

There are those who advocate, and those who do. I'm not trying to slight my peers, but there is a difference between using a soapbox and actually getting your hands dirty.
