Do not live for others any more than you would expect others to live for you."

It was arrogant and alienated others. In short, those who read were wasteful and haughty and incapable of living in the real world. They were dreamers."
Author: David Bergen

I hunger for your sleek laugh, your hands the color of a savage harvest, hunger for the pale stones of your fingernails, I want to eat your skin like a whole almond. I want to eat the sunbeam flaring in your lovely body, the sovereign nose of your arrogant face, I want to eat the fleeting shade of your lashes, and I pace around hungry, sniffing the twilight, hunting for you, for your hot heart, Like a puma in the barrens of Quitratue."

35. "In this society, or rather our social construct, where almost all is left up to the individual's interpretation, the line between virtue and vice seems less perceptible than ever before. At least in my experience, of something I have noted repeatedly and in my observation of people's communication regarding the issue, I have come to my own conclusions. Albeit arrogantly, and with a sense of disdain for the tales that have been "made-up" in support of human hypocrisy, I am convinced that most people cannot discern between right and wrong, good and evil and least of all, true or false."

Then he'd beat the other one to death with his dead brother's leg. He looked to his own brother. Rye would save him from his towering rage. Rye would have calming words. Rye would talk him down.Rye's face was red as he pointed at the young cowboys. "You, kill now, Max."

40. "I hate the heat and the sticky, sweaty mess left behind. I hate the lackadaisical ennui of a sun too preoccupied with itself to notice the infinite hours we spend in its presence. The sun is an arrogant thing, always leaving the world behind when it tires of us.The moon is a loyal companion.It never leaves. It's always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it's a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human.Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections.-Juliette"
Author: Tahereh Mafi

In un certo senso vedo di nuovo, in questa mia ultima passeggiata, quegli spiriti dei morti che vidi la prima volta che venni qui!»«Sei proprio un tipo curioso!»«Mi sembra di vederli, e quasi di sentire il fruscio delle loro vesti. Ma non li venero più come allora. Non credo alla metà di loro. Teologi, apologisti, metafisici, statisti arroganti e altri, non mi interessano più. Tutto questo ha perso per me ogni fascino perché è stato annientato dalla cruda realtà!»L'espressione cadaverica del volto di Jude alla luce dei lampioni sotto la pioggia faceva veramente credere che vedesse qualcuno laddove non c'era nessuno."
Author: Thomas Hardy

45. "4 is the worst time to wake up, as anyone with the normal human sensitivities will tell you. Far too late to make a cup of tea or go back to sleep.

For me, base 12 philosophy aside, midnight is not the witching hour. 4:00 is."

47. "The arrogant elimination of the Djaouts of our world must nerve us to pursue our own combative doctrine, namely: that peaceful cohabitation on this planet demands that while the upholders of any creed are free to adopt their own existential absolutes, the right of others to do the same is thereby rendered implicit and sacrosanct. Thus the creed of inquiry, of knowledge and exchange of ideas, must be upheld as an absolute, as ancient and eternal as any other."
Author: Wole Soyinka
48. "As much as you can, keep dunya (worldly life) in your hand--not in your heart. That means when someone insults you, keep it out of your heart so it doesn't make you bitter or defensive. When someone praises you, also keep it out of your heart, so it doesn't make you arrogant and self-deluded. When you face hardship and stress, don't absorb it in your heart, so you don't become hopeless and overwhelmed. Instead keep it in your hands and realize that everything passes. When you're given a gift by God, don't hold it in your heart. Hold it in your hand so that you don't begin to love the gift more than the giver. And so that when it is taken away you can truly respond with 'inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi rajioon': 'indeed we belong to God, and to God we return'."
Author: Yasmin Mogahed

Author: Yohji Yamamoto

If you are reckless, greedy,and arrogant, the American taxpayer should not bail you out."

There's a cumulative effect to getting good parts as a freelance actor, because you're only as good as your last job, and you have to keep going out and getting them. Unless you're part of the finance structure, by which I mean a bankable star, which I never was and never will be."
