Favorite Ece Quotes

1. "As soon as we entered I plunged into the giddy whirl of the waltz. That delightful exercise has always been dear to me; I know of nothing more beautiful, more worthy of a beautiful woman and a young man; all dances compared with the waltz are but insipid conventions or pretexts for insignificant converse. It is truly to possess a woman, in a certain sense, to hold her for a half hour in your arms, and to draw her on in the dance, palpitating in spite of herself, in such a way that it can not be positively asserted whether she is being protected or seduced. Some deliver themselves up to the pleasure with such modest voluptuousness, with such sweet and pure abandon, that one does not know whether he experiences desire or fear, and whether, if pressed to the heart, they would faint or break in pieces like the rose. Germany, where that dance was invented, is surely the land of love."
Author: Alfred De Musset
2. "My lady, for your virtue and goodness, God would receive you in rags."
Author: Alison Weir
3. "Man is by nature a social animal; an individual who is unsocial naturally and not accidentally is either beneath our notice or more than human. Society is something that precedes the individual. Anyone who either cannot lead the common life or is so self-sufficient as not to need to, and therefore does not partake of society, is either a beast or a god."
Author: Aristotle
4. "I sovrani deboli sono una maledizione in terra, tuttavia i nostri giuramenti sono fatti ai sovrani, ragionai; se non facessimo giuramenti, non avremmo leggi, e se non avessimo leggi, ci sarebbe solo anarchia. Perciò dobbiamo legarci mediante le leggi e con in giuramenti attenerci alle leggi; se un uomo potesse cambiare i sovrani a capriccio, allora potrebbe trascurare i giuramenti fatti a un sovrano scomodo; i sovrani sono necessari perché è necessario avere leggi immutabili."
Author: Bernard Cornwell
5. "Engaged," he said bitterly. "Everybody's engaged. Everybody in a small town is engaged or married or in trouble. There's nothing else to do in a small town. You go to school. You start walking home with a girl-- maybe for no other reason than that she lives out your way. You grow up. She invites you to parties at her home. You go to other parties-- eople ask you to bring her along; you're expected to take her home. Soon no one else takes her out. Everybody thinks she's your girl and then...well, if you don't take her around, you feel like a heel. And then, because there's nothing else to do, you marry. And it works out all right if she's a decent girl (and most of the time she is) and you're a halfway decent fellow. No great passion but a kind of affectionate contentment. And then children come along and you give them the great love you kind of miss in each other. And the children gain in the long run."
Author: Betty Smith
6. "I used to say I never talk about my successor, neither about my predecessor."
Author: Boutros Boutros Ghali
7. "It felt increasingly, as I became more whole, that I had made it all up, and that I was a phoney. I had to come to some place of acceptance. If I made it all up, then I am an unspeakably evil person, leading so many wonderful, intelligent people astray. What a scheming mind I must have. I knowledge will be hard too live with. But harder still is the thought that perhaps, just perhaps it is all true; that I really was horribly, ritualistically abused in a satanic setting, over and over again and as a result my mind fragmented. The implications of that are completely overwhelming. It was me, my body, that they did those things to. No, I would rather believe I am an evil and deceitful person. At least the I can change, and say sorry, and live a better life from now on."
Author: Carolyn Bramhall
8. "Normal life? Nothing about this is normal, Novice. I'm Death, not a Genie. I don't go granting wishes unless absolutely necessary." He levels his face to mine. "You do remember your family's souls, don't you?"
Author: Cecilia Robert
9. "The observer self, a part of who we really are, is that part of us that is watching both our false self and our True Self. We might say that it even watches us when we watch. It is our Consciousness, it is the core experience of our Child Within. It thus cannot be watched—at least by anything or any being that we know of on this earth. It transcends our five senses, our co-dependent self and all other lower, though necessary parts, of us. Adult children may confuse their observer self with a kind of defense they may have used to avoid their Real Self and all of its feelings. One might call this defense "false observer self" since its awareness is clouded. It is unfocused as it "spaces" or "numbs out." It denies and distorts our Child Within, and is often judgmental."
Author: Charles L. Whitfield
10. "Now it is evident that a little insight into the customs of every people is necessary to insure a kindly communication; this, joined with patience and kindness, will seldom fail with the natives of the interior."
Author: Charles Sturt
11. "I was involved, deeply involved, in a deception... I have deceived my friends - and I had millions of them."

Author: Chuck Palahniuk
13. "And if you remember the other part of the context is we were then all deceived about the French position and told the French had said they'd veto any second resolution - which wasn't true, we now know."
Author: Clare Short
14. "When we pick up the newspaper at breakfast, we expect - we even demand - that it brings us momentous events since the night before...We expect our two-week vacations to be romantic, exotic, cheap, and effortless..We expect anything and everything. We expect the contradictory and the impossible. We expect compact cars which are spacious; luxurious cars which are economical. We expect to be rich and charitable, powerful and merciful, active and reflective, kind and competitive. We expect to be inspired by mediocre appeals for excellence, to be made literate by illiterate appeals for literacy...to go to 'a church of our choice' and yet feel its guiding power over us, to revere God and to be God. Never have people been more the masters of their environment. Yet never has a people felt more deceived and disappointed. For never has a people expected so much more than the world could offer."
Author: Daniel J. Boorstin
15. "Closing down in the midst of pain is a denial of a man's true nature. A superior man is free in feeling and action, evenamidst great pain and hurt. If necessary, a man should live with a hurting heart rather than a closed one. He shouldlearn to stay in the wound of pain and act with spontaneous skill and love even from that place."
Author: David Deida
16. "A painting really works down in your heart and changes the way you see, and think, and feel, you don't think, ‘oh, I love this picture because it's universal.' ‘I love this painting because it speaks to all mankind.' That's not the reason anyone loves a piece of art. It's a secret whisper from an alleyway. Psst, you. Hey kid. Yes you." Fingertip gliding over the faded-out photo—the conservator's touch, a touch-without-touching, a communion wafer's space between the surface and his forefinger. "An individual heart-shock. Your dream,"
Author: Donna Tartt

Author: Elizabeth Gilbert

Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
19. "Lei aveva scoperto a poco a poco l'incertezza dei passi del marito, i turbamenti d'umore, le crepe della memoria, l'abitudine recenti di singhiozzare nel sonno, ma non li aveva considerati segni inequivocabili della ruggine finale, bensì un ritorno felice all'infanzia. Per questo non lo trattava come un vecchio difficile ma come un bambino senile, e quell'inganno era stato provvidenziale per entrambi avendoli messi in salvo dalla compassione."
Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
20. "A veces el tiempo y la memoria cambian un poco las cosas"
Author: Gabriel Rolón
21. "A veces, hasta los hombres más valientes se ciegan cuando les da miedo ver algo.Lord Beric"
Author: George R.R. Martin
22. "I hurt myself deeply, though at the time I had no idea how deeply. I should have learned many things from that experience, but when I look back on it, all I gained was one single, undeniable fact. That ultimately I am a person who can do evil. I never consciously tried to hurt anyone, yet good intentions notwithstanding, when necessity demanded, I could become completely self-centred, even cruel. I was the kind of person who could, using some plausible excuse, inflict on a person I cared for a wound that would never heal."
Author: Haruki Murakami

24. "I lifted my hand and pulled the blue paper cap back a little, until a piece of my red fell out, then I reached my hand back inside the case. I slid my finger under some tubes and into her tiny purple hand. And just like that, like she had known it was me all along, she squeezed it."
Author: Jennifer Gooch Hummer
25. "If I could touch anything in the world right now, it would be your heart. I want to take that piece of you and keep it with me."
Author: Jessica Verday
26. "Beware of all politicians everywhere. They excelled at recess when they were in school but have excelled at little since."
Author: Jim Rogers
27. "All truth is given by revelation, either general or special, and it must be received by reason. Reason is the God-given means for discovering the truth that God discloses, whether in his world or his Word. While God wants to reach the heart with truth, he does not bypass the mind."
Author: Jonathan Edwards
28. "Algo siempre entristece a las mujeres bellas, un aire melancólico las rodea; debe de ser el precio de la hermosura. O el precio de saber que ella no era la dueña de su brillo sino cada uno de los seres que la soñaba, la deseaba, la idolatraba o la reprobaba, porque la belleza despierta sentimientos opuestos, también despierta prejuicios, despierta envidia y rabia, ese es el precio que se paga. Los ojos que la contemplan se creen sus dueños y por eso alguien puede llegar a decir, con veneno en la lengua: nadie es perfecto. Eso es cierto. Nadie es perfecto y ella tampoco lo es, pero hay que ver cuánto se acerca."
Author: Jorge Franco

Do you know a single soul who's moved to Greece?" He didn't give me a chance to reply before he continued, "No? Me neither. No one moves to Greece. Goes there. Yes. Gets laid. Definitely. Drinks ouzo. Lots of it. Gets a sunburn. Of course! But you don't move there!"
Author: Kristen Ashley

Author: L.E. Modesitt Jr.
31. "It's mad what each generation vilifies. It's not necessarily to do with logic."
Author: Laura Fraser
32. "...that is how the liars remain in control. Through one's silence and fear of alienation, the truth is buried deeper under the soil of fabrication and deceit. Chaos rules because eventually, it's easier to cling to whatever debris is left than to walk into the storm, taste the rain and greet the thunder with your fists balled and your courage lit like a fire that will never be put out."
Author: Laurel Dewey
33. "Choreography is amazing. I'm still a dancer, yet I transitioned into choreography then as a Creative Director. All of these creative elements are brought out of being a dancer. Directing is something that comes out of understanding movement and choreography. Directing movement is directing a dance piece."
Author: Laurieann Gibson
34. "I love the music of Lauryn Hill and Erykah Badu and more recently the music of Laura Marling. All these women share a strength and a wisdom in their voices and music that really makes me want to make music and sing."
Author: Lianne La Havas
35. "Just looking at themI grow greedy, as if they werefreshly baked loaveswaiting on their shelvesto be broken open--that oneand that--and I make my choicein a mood of exalted luck,browsing among themlike a cow in sweetest pasture.For life is continuousas long as they waitto be read--these inked pathsopening into the future, pageafter page, every bookits own receding horizon.And I hold them, one in each hand,a curious ballast weighing mehere to earth."
Author: Linda Pastan
36. "A veces me siento desdichada, nada más que de no saber qué es lo que estoy echando de menos."
Author: Mario Benedetti
37. "I like the term "decedent." It's as though the man weren't dead, but merely involved in some sort of protracted legal dispute. For evident reasons, mortuary science is awash with euphemisms. "Don't say stiff, corpse, cadaver," scolds The Principles and Practice of Embalming. "Say decedent, remains or Mr. Blank. Don't say 'keep.' Say 'maintain preservation.'…"Wrinkles are "acquired facial markings." Decomposed brain that filters down through a damaged skull and bubbles out the nose is "frothy purge."
Author: Mary Roach
38. "Petronius says that ‘Mundus vult decipi - The world wants to be deceived.' That is very true, otherwise there wouldn't exist any religion!"
Author: Mehmet Murat Ildan
39. "Do you think that Hemingway knew he was a writer at twenty years old? No, he did not. Or Fitzgerald, or Wolfe. This is a difficult concept to grasp. Hemingway didn't know he was Ernest Hemingway when he was a young man. Faulkner didn't know he was William Faulkner. But they had to take the first step. They had to call themselves writers. That is the first revolutionary act a writer has to make. It takes courage. But it's necessary"
Author: Pat Conroy
40. "Orang kampung seperti sahaya ini, bendoro muda, kelahirannya sendiri sudah suatu kecelakaan. Tak ada sesuatu yang lebih celaka dari nasib orang kampung."
Author: Pramoedya Ananta Toer
41. "La literatura es una máquina acorazada. No se preocupa de los escritores. A veces ni siquiera se da cuenta de que éstos están vivos. Su enemigo es otro, mucho más grande, mucho más poderoso, y que a la postre la terminará venciendo, pero ésa es otra historia."
Author: Roberto Bolaño

Author: Stephen Elop
44. "Though there was no sound, there was a change. The atmosphere, which had gone tense at my accusation, relaxed. I wondered how I knew this. I had a strange sensation that I was somehow receiving more than my five senses were giving me - almost a feeling that there was another sense, on the fringes, not quite harnessed. Intuition? That was almost the right word. As if any creature needed more than five senses."
Author: Stephenie Meyer
45. "They can fatten me up. They can give me a full body polish, dress me up, and make me beautiful again. They can design dream weapons that come to life in my hands, but they will never again brainwash me into the necessity of using them. I no longer feel allegiance to these monsters called human beings, despite being one myself."
Author: Suzanne Collins

Author: Vergílio Ferreira

Author: Voltaire
50. "Decent people should ignore politics, if only they could be confident that politics would ignore them"

Power loves not the light of day, nor the attention of curious eyes. In darkness it thrives most...A lord may send his army hither and thither, but the true testing of his power is in those places where his army is not...Has he sent its long fingers far enough through the backstreets and alleys, into the drinking dens and the lending-houses, so that he may gather them unto himself and hold them firm without a single swordsman?"
