Mike and Donna Henderson, onetime Scientologists from Clearwater, were victims of this culture. OT 7 and OT 8 respectively, they were nearly bankrupted by their involvement with the church. Today they are two of a growing number of ex-Scientologists who predict that in these dark economic times, Scientology's "unvarnished demand for money", as Mike puts it, may lead to its demise.
He thought about himself, and the whole earth, Of man the wonderful, and of the stars, And how the deuce they ever could have birth; And then he thought of earthquakes, and of wars, How many miles the moon might have in girth, Of air-balloons, and of the many bars To perfect knowledge of the boundless skies; And then he thought of Donna Julia's eyes.Rochdale
God writes a lot of comedy, Donna; the trouble is, he's stuck with so many bad actors who don't know how to play funny.garrison keillor
“But she’s your daughter!” “You think I don’t know that?” Donna Mitchell’s dark eyes, so like Allison’t own, drilled into her. “But I don’t do her any favors if I keep enabling her. I’m not going to rescue Lindsay from the consequences of her own self-destructive behavior anymore. The last time she was here, I told her if she left that was it. And she still did.”lis wiehl
Donna De Lory: 
Donna che sia pregata non sta forte.
Inigo Montoya: I Donna suppose you could speed things up?
Man in Black: If you're in such a hurry, you could lower a rope or a tree branch or find something useful to do.
Inigo Montoya: I could do that. I have some rope up here, but I do not think you would accept my help, since I am only waiting around to kill you.
Man in Black: That does put a damper on our relationship.
A Donna non si può credere, eziam poi che è morta.bernardo dovizi
La Donna è sopra la pecunia, come il sol sopra il ghiaccio, che del continue lo strugge e consume.bernardo dovizi
Io iudico bene questo, che sia meglio essere impetuoso che respettivo; perché la fortuna è Donna, et è necessario, volendola tenere sotto, batterla et urtarla. E si vede che la si lascia più vincere da questi, che da quelli che freddamente procedano. E però sempre, come Donna, è amica de' giovani, perché sono meno respettivi, più feroci e con più audacia la comandano.
L'amore sano è quello che abbraccia una Donna sola e intera, compreso il suo carattere e la sua intelligenza.italo svevo
