    What a load of bullshit.

  2. Always have an escape route.

    It was the mantra my father lived by. Always have an escape route. Always be prepared to lose everything. He instilled the words to me. I remember being maybe 5 years old, playing hopscotch in front of a brick townhouse. I remember the way the chalk clung to my black patent leather shoes with gold buckles. An alarm went off in the house and I looked up to see my father hurry down the stairs. He swept me up in his arms and ran, abruptly turning a corner into a deserted alley. Police cars ran past us and my father plopped me down and shuffled me towards a gate at the end of the alley. It was to a park. I remember peering up at him, eyes full of wonder. The alarm shouldn’t have gone off, but we didn’t run far. He seemed to read my mind. “Always have an escape route, Emily,” he smiled, wisely tapping his temple. I’d heard the words only once but the idea was instilled and reverberated throughout my life. Jobs gone bad but people still safe.

  3. To empower, to enforce, to give.

    To fill, to engorge, to pour.

    To encourage, to support, to believe.

    To create, to build, to make.

    To instill.

  4. The government has been placing more and more laws on the people, constricting their freedoms. It is the year 2098, and people have no choices and nothing is allowed. Pressing their feet down on the people, the government gives the people no choices. Small people doing small things that they have done for years.

  5. The sound of heavy breathing coming from behind her closet door instilled her with the a stabbing fear. Her heart began racing. She backed slowly away, her hand still outstretched as if she was still clinging to the door knob.

  6. When a person speaks, they are trying to instill their thoughts and ideas into another person. There is no such thing as the objective spreading of information. Each retelling is stilted and shaded by the teller’s view of the world.

  7. He needed to instill the idea that she was thoroughly beautiful into her mind so that she wouldn’t keep doubting herself. She seemed to find a flaw with herself no matter what, and it got to a point where she could hardly function throughout the day in fear that she might have something wrong with her. In his eyes, she was absolutely perfect – it was just a matter of making her see that and believe it, too.

  8. The thoughts swirled together in one great wave in colors of blue and purple and pink. The point was simple enough. And it soared through the skies. They watched. And waited. It was time to instill wonder. Time to let their imagination breathe.

  9. A little seed, placed so lightly by the fingertip.
    A tiny dance performed inside your shoe on the journey home.
    A moment in the sun while walking to the train station.

  10. They were meant to instill fear. The brass knuckles, shining in the light. They looked tough but only from a shallow glance. They were too…perfect. He had never used them before and she knew it.

  11. How do we instill your mind? I have always wondered this. The way everyone thinks is different in all aspects of fields and whatnot. Not everyone will be having happy thoughts with what they contain.

  12. We are all just collages of the experiences and memories of our childhood. The scraped knees, playground rumors, discreet stares at heavy-set adults, random snippets that have somehow instilled us with some abstraction we call “me”.

  14. It wasn’t often that she was able to find a moment of peace. Her days were often filled with papers to grade, and tests to write, and disgruntled parents to deal with. So times like these, where she was able to just sit and sip a mug of hot mint tea were her favorite, and never failed to instill a feeling of serenity.

  15. He wanted to instill life into me. He wanted to make sure I lived my life to the fullest. That I had the fear of God in me to be the best and see the best and live my God damn life. I failed him. and I failed me. I will regret that for the rest of my life and longer

  17. He told me he was doing it because he wanted to instill courage in me. That he wanted me to become a survivor should total chaos break out in society. And he believed that would happen soon – far sooner than anyone else thought.

    However, I didn’t understand how hitting me would make me tougher, or pressing hot metal to my bare arms and legs. He said I had to get used to the pain, and one day, I responded by breaking his arm with just one hand. He wasn’t willing to let his own mantra apply to his own agony.

  18. “You can’t just do that to people, Kevin. You have to start thinking more about other people. It’s time you start putting other people’s needs before your own. To be honest, I expected more from you by now. What would your father say? I don’t have the patience to listen to your excuses right now- I don’t care how old you are, go upstairs. Now.”

  19. There’s something that is instilled in us from the day we were born
    To obey.
    Are you a boy or a girl?
    No, you are a woman.
    Good girl.
    Now listen to what I tell you. Be good. Follow my instructions. Don’t displease me.
    You feel fuzzyheaded, and want to revolt. The world is easier, clearer when you obey. Maybe you should just obey. You can’t obey. It’s confusing and hard. It hurts but their displeasure hurts more.
    Don’t displease me.

  20. it’s the insides of me. my core and my bones and my synapses. it’s my blood and my veins and the things I think when I’m not trying to think of things at all. It’s what I know for sure, for certain, without doubt. It’s me.

  21. he instilled love into me whenever I needed it, and even when I didn’t need it
    it was the best feeling i had ever felt
    whether it was from words
    or a glance
    or a longing gaze; yeah, there’s a difference
    or a simple gesture of his arm on my shoulder
    he gave me love
    when his love and he left; I adapted to it
    I have this favorable mutation
    and it allows me to move on from things that would cause me pain
    The place I had full of love is empty
    absolutely empty, nothing there, and a brick wall forms as a barrier, like a callus on my palm
    or in this case, my heart

  23. Placed within this vessel
    a captive spirit anew
    with a fervor that lights
    it’s way through passages
    unseen and little known

  24. She tried to instill in him a sense of pride, of patriotism, but he would not let go of the principles instilled in him by his father. Attaining a new life was more than a matter of finding a new place to live, it seemed.

  25. I was independent. My own person. The values and boundaries that my parents tried so hard to instill in me were long forgotten. They weren’t living through me anymore; I didn’t need them then and I certainly don’t now. In fact, I don’t need anyone to survive. I can make it by myself.

  26. “I will instill in her a love of life; a desire to prolong goodness, and the faith to believe that there are those in this world who are pure of heart.”

    Marta’s laughter bounced off the stone walls and tears began to run down her face.

    “What is this, Torma? The Time of the Ancients?” The old woman cackled and rocked back and forth as her mirth ran its course.

    “There are still good people in this Realm, Marta. You know there are.”

    Her laughter stopped as suddenly as it had begun and she leaned forward quickly, her face suddenly inches from Torma’s own. Her breath was fetid with rot and decay and he held is breath.

    “No one remains who will help you, Torma. No one remains who will want to see your daughter live.”

  28. Du weigerst dich,
    wehrst dich verzweizelt.
    Manchmal muss man –
    dich zum Glück zwingen!
    Es dir einflössen,
    es dir aufdrängen
    Manchmal muss man –
    dich zum Glück zwingen,

  29. My mother tried to instill in me the virtues of a proper lady; unfortunately, making idle overly polite conversation and needlepoint were about as interesting as watching a canvass dry. So, instead, it became the responsibility of my sister who, after one error too many, sent me to our eldest brother, Edvard. It was from him I learned how to do important things that were ACTUALLY important. I learned to fight, with sword and bow and fist, even, I learned to ride, I learned to hunt and track and to start a fire.
    In short, I learned all the things a proper lady should never know.
    And I was happier for it.
