Top Quotes About Aldo

1. "Economics ought to be a magpie discipline, taking in philosophy, history and politics. But heterodox approaches have long since been banished from most faculties, claims Tony Lawson. In the 1970s, when he started teaching at Cambridge, the economics faculty still boasted legends such as Nicky Kaldor and Joan Robinson. "There were big debates, and students would study politics, the history of economic thought." And now? "Nothing. No debates, no politics or history of economic thought and the courses are nearly all maths."How do elites remain in charge? If the tale of the economists is any guide, by clearing out the opposition and then blocking their ears to reality. The result is the one we're all paying for."
Author: Aditya Chakrabortty

3. "Quote of the day:Quote of the day: A democracy which makes or even effectively prepares for modern, scientific war must necessarily cease to be democratic.

Author: Aldous Huxley
4. "L'amore se ne infischia del soldo, l'amore è più caldo del caldo. Che sia vinta la guerra o sia persa, è l'amore che il mondo attraversa. L'amore non fa rima né ha ragioni, l'amore rende pazzo chi lo ha. L'amore sopravvive alle stagioni […]. L'amore vince i giochi, ogni contesa, che scoppi sulla terra o dentro al mare. Nessuna risorsa è meglio spesa, di quelle bruciate per amare."
Author: Ali Smith

6. "-[...]-Geralt -dijo Stregobor-, cuando escuchábamos a Eltibaldo muchos de nosotros teníamos dudas. Pero decidimos escoger el mal menor. Ahora soy yo el que te pide una elección similar.-El mal es el mal, Stregobor- afirmó serio el brujo mientras se levantaba-. Menor, mayor, mediano, es igual, las proporciones son convenidas y las fronteras son borrosas. No soy un santo ermitaño, no siempre he obrado bien. Pero si tengo que elegir entre un mal y otro, prefiero no elegir en absoluto.[...]"
Author: Andrzej Sapkowski

8. "Uno scrittore non dimentica mai la prima volta che accetta qualche moneta o un elogio in cambio di una storia. Non dimentica mai la prima volta che avverte nel sangue il dolce veleno della vanità e crede che se riuscirà a nascondere a tutti la sua mancanza di talento il sogno della letteratura potrà dargli un tetto sulla testa un piatto caldo alla fine della giornata e soprattutto quanto di più desidera: il suo nome stampato su un miserabile pezzo di carta che vivrà sicuramente più a lungo di lui. Uno scrittore è condannato a ricordare quell'istante perché a quel punto è già perduto e la sua anima ha ormai un prezzo."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón
9. "I shall set down in a few lines how uptight Maldoror was during his early years, when he lived happy. There: done. He later perceived he was born wicked: strange mischance! For a great many years he concealed his character as best he could; but in the end, because this effort was not natural to him, each day the blood would rush to his head until, unable any longer to bear such a life, he hurled himself resolutely into a career of evil … sweet atmosphere! Who could guess whenever he hugged a rosycheeked young child, that he was longing to hack off those cheeks with a razor and would have done so often had not the idea of Justice and her long cortège of punishments restrained him on every occasion."
Author: Comte De Lautréamont
10. "Maldoror'un mutlu yasadigi o ilk yillarda nasil iyi yürekli biri oldugunu anlatacagim birkaç satirda.Daha sonra, kötü ruhlu dogmus oldugunu fark etti: Ne garip yazgi! Kisiligini elinden geldigincegizledi uzun yillar, ama sonunda, su alisik olmadigi gerilim yüzünden, her gün kan beynine çikmayabasladi; böylesine bir yasama artik katlanamadigi için de, sonunda, kararli bir biçimde kötülükmeslegine adandi… .....Yalanci biri degildi, gerçegi kabul ediyor vekendisinin bir kan dökücü oldugunu söylüyordu. Insanlar, duydunuz mu? Bu titreyen kus telegikalemle de ayni seyi tekrarlamaktan utanmiyor. Sanki istençten de güçlü yetke… Bir lânet! Yerçekimiyasalarina karsi koyabilir mi tas? Olanaksiz. Kötülük, iyilikle baglasma yapmak isterse, olanaksizdir.Yukarida söyledigim de buydu benim zaten."
Author: Comte De Lautréamont
11. "In the moral realm, there is very little consensus left in Western countries over the proper basis of moral behavior. And because of the power of the media, for millions of men and women the only venue where moral questions are discussed and weighed is the talk show, where more often than not the primary aim is to entertain, even shock, not to think. When Geraldo and Oprah become the arbiters of public morality, when the opinion of the latest media personality is sought on everything from abortion to transvestites, when banality is mistaken for profundity because [it's] uttered by a movie star or a basketball player, it is not surprising that there is less thought than hype. Oprah shapes more of the nation's grasp of right and wrong than most of the pulpits in the land. Personal and social ethics have been removed from the realms of truth and structures of thoughts; they have not only been relativized, but they have been democratized and trivialized."
Author: D.A. Carson
12. "D'inverno per vestirmi mi ci vuole il tempo di un cavaliere con l'armatura. Ogni parte del corpo esige la congruenza del tessuto protettore: i piedi sono esigenti riguardo alla lana dei calzini; il busto vuole la tripla protezione della canottiera, della camicia e del pullover. D'inverno vestirmi significa trovare l'equilibrio fra la temperatura interna e quella dei vari fuori: fuori dal letto, fuori dalla camera, fuori di casa... Devo essere immerso nel giusto calore originario; nulla di più sgradevole e di più disdicevole che aver troppo caldo d'inverno."
Author: Daniel Pennac
13. "En un mitin en Atzcapotzalco un policía subió a hablar; dijo que él era un hombre con dignidad, se quitó el uniforme y lo pisoteó. Luego nos pidió dinero para irse a su tierra. Estaba llorando de coraje.• Julián Acevedo Maldonado, estudiante de la Facultad de Derecho de la UNAM."
Author: Elena Poniatowska
14. "God is not an exclamation point. He is, at his best, a semicolon, connecting people, and generating what Aldous Huxley called "human grace." Somewhere along the way, we've lost sight of this."
Author: Eric Weiner
15. "Az elso pergotuz rámutatott a tévedésünkre, s rommá lotte azt a világnézetet, amelyre bennünket tanítottak. Amikor ok még mindig csak írtak és beszéltek, mi már tábori kórházakat és haldoklókat láttunk – amikor ok még állam szolgálatát a legnagyobb dolognak nevezték, mi már tudtuk, hogy erosebb annál a halálfélelemnél. Nem lett azért belolünk se zendülo, se szökevény, se gyáva fickó – ezek a kifejezések mind olyan könnyen álltak náluk! –, éppen úgy szerettük a hazánkat, mint ok, és minden támadás alkalmával bátran mentünk elore; de most már tudtunk különbséget tenni, egyszerre megtanultunk látni. És láttuk, hogy az o világukból nem maradt meg semmi. Egyszerre irtózatosan egyedül maradtunk – egyedül kellett boldogulnunk."
Author: Erich Maria Remarque
16. "Selon Ibn Khaldoun, il ne faut jamais oublier l'importance du climat. Le visage soucieux et l'allure renfrognée du Fassi, s"expliqueraient par le climat rugueux qu'ils endurent avec cet hiver givré de glace et de ce vent mordant qui souffle du nord. Je me demande pourtant si le climat a une telle importance pour déterminer la place de le séduction dans une culture donnée. A fès, il y a un mot pour désigner celui _ ou celle _ qui sourit sans raison. On dit qu'il "Farnass". C'est ce qu'on dit de quelqu'un qui a la lèvre supérieure qui fuit quelque peu et découvre les dents de devant. Petite, je m'entendais dire sans cesse: " Seul l'âne farnass". Serrer les lèvres 'avait donc rien à voir avec le froid! Cette attitude traduisait plutôt un certain un certain recroquevillement de l'être, une certaine absence de générosité au niveau du sentiment. A Fès, même un sourire doit être calculé, doit avoir un prix, une signification bien précise dans un réseau de comportements déterminés...."

17. "Trajeron caldo en unas escudillas de madera, tan claro, que en comer una dellas peligrara Narciso más que en la fuente."
Author: Francisco De Quevedo
18. "A book can be as dangerous as a sword in the right hands, said Haldon."
Author: George R.R. Martin
19. "Una vaga desilusión fue debilitando y esfumando mis sentimientos y mis alegrías habituales; el jardín no tenía perfume, el bosque no me atraía, el mundo se extendía alrededor de mí como un saldo de trastos viejos, insípido y desencantado; los libros eran papel; la música, ruido. No de otro modo pierde sus hojas el árbol otoñal en torno de sí. No lo siente, y la lluvia, la escarcha y el sol resbalaban por su tronco, mientras su vida se retira a lo más íntimo y recóndito. No muere. Espera."
Author: Hermann Hesse
20. "Simdi Marcovaldo'nun uyuyabilmek için, ne oldugunu kendisinin de pek bilmedigi bir seye gereksinimi vardi, artik gerçek, tam bir sessizlik bile yeterli olmayacakti, sessizlikten daha yumusak bir dip gürültüsü, orman agaçlarinin etegindeki bitkileri yalayan hafif bir meltem ya da çayirdan fiskirarak akip giden bir suyun siriltisini istiyordu."
Author: Italo Calvino
21. "I will not debate with you Dark Elf. By the swords of the Noldor alone are your sunless woods defended. Your freedom to wander there wild you owe to my kin and but for them long since you would have laboured in thraldom in the pits of Angband. And here I am King and whether you will it or will it not my doom is law. This choice is given to you: abide here or to die here and so also for your son."
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
22. "Tenías que hacerte amigo de un compañero de celda loco, ¿verdad? ¿No podías limitarte a contar las baldosas del techo o a domesticar un ratón, como hacen los prisioneros normales?"
Author: Jace Herondale

Author: James Crumley

Author: Jarod Kintz

Author: Jarod Kintz
26. "Dear Edmond,When I got home last night I noticed that you were asleep. I also noticed that you had gone to Morton's Steakhouse and there were leftovers in the fridge. Renaldo and Ruprecht were asleep, so I examined the boxes a little more closely. On them you had written "Edmond" and underlined your name. And then next to it you had written "Do Not Eat!" So I honored your wish, and I ate all your food, thus removing the temptation for you to eat it. It was great! You're such a great friend, with a strong will, too. But even the strongest wills get tested. I know that just as much as you do."
Author: Jarod Kintz
27. "Dexter,' Debs said, jerking her head at me. 'Get some smelling salts or something. You and Deke help her up.'(...) Deke looked at me anxiously, reminding me very much of a large and handsome dog who needs a stick to fetch. 'Hey, you got some of that smelling stuff?' he said.Apparently it had become universally accepted that Dexter was the Eternal Keeper of the Smelling Salts.I had no idea where that baffling canard had come from, but in truth, I was completely without.Luckily, Mrs Aldovar apparently was not interested in sniffing anything."
Author: Jeff Lindsay

Author: Lauren Barnholdt

Author: Leticia Wierzchowski
30. "I imagined my first night alone in bed with my stranger. I conjured our future years together unhampered by worries about money or officialdom. We would enjoy the day, the night, a smile, a word, a kiss, a glance. All lovely thoughts. All pointless dreams."
Author: Lisa See

Author: Louise Penny
32. "The moon looks wonderful in this warm evening light, just as a candle flame looks beautiful in the light of morning. Light within light. It seems like a metaphor for something. So much does. Ralph Waldo Emerson is excellent on this point.It seems to me to be a metaphor for the human soul, the singular light within the great general light of existence. Or it seems like poetry within language. Perhaps wisdom within experience. Or marriage within friendship and love."
Author: Marilynne Robinson
33. "The nation's forests were being cut faster than they could grow back. In the 1890s, while Aldo was growing up, the United States had begun to set aside forest reserves to protect the trees. Then, while Aldo was in high school, one of the country's first forestry schools opened at Yale University. Aldo knew immediately what he wanted to do. If he could become a forester, he could get paid to work in the woods all day. How could a job get any better?"

39. "He lowered his voice. "You are a true shield-maiden; you do not turn from a scar on a man's face."I looked at him and did not lower my eyes. "My father was an ealdorman, and his brother ealdorman after him. He taught me that a scar is the badge of honour of the warrior, and this I believe."He regarded me for a long moment. "I think I am glad we did not face your father and his brother in battle," he said, "for they were of better stuff than what we have found here."In saying this, he gave my dead kinsmen much praise. I felt that praise came rarely from the Danes, and took a strange pleasure in hearing him say this. I did not speak, but he lifted his cup to me, and I again took up mine. - Sidroc the Dane to Ceridwen"
Author: Octavia Randolph

Even then she had the makings of a good mother."
Author: Pamela Todd

Author: Taylor Caldwell
46. "[Aldous Huxley] compared the brain to a 'reducing valve'. In ordinary perception, the senses send an overwhelming flood of information to the brain, which the brain then filters down to a trickle it can manage for the purpose of survival in a highly competitive world. Man has become so rational, so utilitarian, that the trickle becomes most pale and thin. It is efficient, for mere survival, but it screens out the most wondrous part of man's potential experience without his even knowing it. We're shut off from our own world."
Author: Tom Wolfe
47. "Sim, devo ter sentido a pergunta sobre quais as formas de arte maiores e menores. Há uma corrente única de vida que atravessa todo o existente – incluídas portanto também as pedras. Mas tem sentido graduarem-se as formas que ela manifestar. Enquanto vida, ela é igual no homem ou numa minhoca. Mas diferencia-se pela sua complexidade. Não há menos arte, enquanto arte, numa tela de Rembrandt e numa cerâmica de Estremoz. Mas a complexidade de ambos fala uma voz diferente nesse ser complexo. E se compararmos um género de arte com outro? Um quadro com uma música ou um romance com um bailado, ou um filme com uma catedral? Onde se demarca a complexidade ou a carga humana que suportam? Qual deles diz mais? Qual deles diz melhor? Em que parte de nós isso se diferencia? Isso se afere? Não me perguntes. Porque a resposta está apenas no saldo que em ti ficou no que em ti existiu para elas. E ninguém sabe se o saldo maior não foi simplesmente o da música de um cego numa esplanada ao sol..."
Author: Vergílio Ferreira

Author: Virat Kohli

Author: Virginia Woolf
50. "As a musician I'm kind of nomadic, Waldo-like. I show up in different places, and I'm witness to unbelievable things."

Freedom is not merely the opportunity to do as one pleases; neither is it merely the opportunity to choose between set alternatives. Freedom is, first of all, the chance to formulate the available choices, to argue over them -- and then, the opportunity to choose."
