Mine was the weightOf every brooded wrong, the hateThat stood behind each envious thrust,Mine every greed, mine every lust.And all the while for every grief,Each suffering, I craved reliefWith individual desire, –Craved all in vain!

7. "This way of behaving, this way of feeling, so hysterical, so sad, when someone has died, I don't like at all and would like to avoid. It's not as if the whole thing has not happened before, it's not as if people have not been dying all along and each person left behind is the first person ever left behind in the world. What to make of it? Why can't everybody just get used to it? People are born and they just can't go on and on, but it is so hard, so hard for the people left behind; it's so hard to see them go, as if it had never happened before, and so hard it could not happen to anyone else, no one but you could survive this kind of loss, seeing someone go, seeing them leave you behind; you don't want to go with them, you only don't want them to go."
Author: Jamaica Kincaid
8. "I dinnae get people, like they all want to be watched, to be seen, like all the time. They put up their pictures online and let people they dinnae like look at them! And people they've never met as well, and they all pretend tae be shinier than they are – and some are even posting on like four sites; their bosses are watching them at work, the cameras watch them on the bus, and on the train, and in Boots, and even outside the chip shop. Then even at home – they're going online to look and see who they can watch, and to check who's watching them!"
Author: Jenni Fagan
9. "Each time I felt the worst kind of fear. What if it didn't work? What if I failed Beth? I'd..." He moved his neck, as if working out a kink. He'd never be the same.

Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout

14. "Having a sister or a friend is like sitting at night in a lighted house. Those outside can watch you if they want, but you need not see them. You simply say, "Here are the perimeters of our attention. If you prowl around under the windows till the crickets go silent, we will pull the shades. If you wish us to suffer your envious curiosity, you must permit us not to notice it." Anyone with one solid human bond is that smug, and it is the smugness as much as the comfort and safety that lonely people covet and admire."
Author: Marilynne Robinson
15. "Only a fool is never afraid, Frank. Heroes are the people who carry on despite their fear, because they know the job's got to get done"

16. "Married people, it's up to you. It's entirely on your shoulders to keep this sinking institution afloat. It's a stately old ship, and a lot of people, like me, want to get on board. Please be psyched, and convey that psychedness to us. And always remember: so many, many people are envious of what you have. You're the star at the end of the Shakespearean play, wearing the wreath of flowers in your hair. The rest of us are just the little side characters."
Author: Mindy Kaling
17. "Dying is only one thing to be sad over, Mitch. Living unhappily is Something else. So many of the people who came to visit me are unhappy.. Why?...For one thing, the culture we have does not make people feel good about themselves. We're teaching the wrong things. And you have to be strong enough to say if the culture doesn't work, don't buy it. Create your own. Most people can't do it. They're more unhappy than me-even in my current condition. I may be dying, but I am surrounded by loving caring souls. How many people can say that?"
Author: Mitch Albom
18. "Unix is not so much a product as it is a painstakingly compiled oral history of the hacker subculture. It is our Gilgamesh epic: a living body of narrative that many people know by heart, and tell over and over again—making their own personal embellishments whenever it strikes their fancy. The bad embellishments are shouted down, the good ones picked up by others, polished, improved, and, over time, incorporated into the story. […] Thus Unix has slowly accreted around a simple kernel and acquired a kind of complexity and asymmetry about it that is organic, like the roots of a tree, or the branchings of a coronary artery. Understanding it is more like anatomy than physics."
Author: Neal Stephenson
19. "Cynicism is our shared common language, the Esperanto that actually caught on, and though I'm not fluent in it - I like too many things, and I'm not envious of enough people - I know enough to get by."
Author: Nick Hornby
20. "True intercession involves bringing the person, or the circumstance that seems to be crashing in on you, before God, until you are changed by His attitude toward that person or circumstance. People describe intercession by saying, "It is putting yourself in someone else's place." That is not true! Intercession is putting yourself in God's place; it is having His mind and His perspective."
Author: Oswald Chambers
21. "The righteous will possess the earth, and they will live forever on it." PSALM 37:29. ~Stop being envious no one can make it without the true help of a honest individual or someone who believes in your future. Stop hating people for success this will make your bones rotten. DONT burn the only bride you left standing. Your image doe's not pay bills stop being concerned about how your social media page looks. & build a foundation on the heels of your strength. Stop feeling sorry for yourselves the world is to cold for anyone to be in weakness. #God1st #FAMILYCLOSE #Author #Writer #MusicArtist"
Author: Ray Rage Patino
22. "I take real people and put them in extraordinary situations."
Author: Robert Cormier
23. "We either accept weaknesses in good people or we have to tear pages out of the Bible."
Author: Robert Duvall
24. "One way of emphasizing the singularity of the recent past is [..] to observe that the total number of humans ever to have lived is estimated at around (a bit less than) 100 billion. One of Walt Whitman's poems has a memorable image—thinking of all past people lined up in orderly columns behind those living—‘row upon row rise the phantoms behind us'. Actually, looking over our shoulder, we would see only around 15 rows."
Author: Robert M. May

Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
26. "When the Kerner Commission told white America what black America has always known, that prejudice and hatred built the nation's slums, maintains them and profits by them, white America could not believe it. But it is true. Unless we start to fight and defeat the enemies in our own country, poverty and racism, and make our talk of equality and opportunity ring true, we are exposed in the eyes of the world as hypocrites when we talk about making people free - (Chapter 9)."
Author: Shirley Chisholm
27. "Some people are jealous of other people's looks and stupid shit like that, but me...I'm envious of anyone who has a greater vocabulary."
Author: Tyler Hojberg

Author: Warren G. Bennis

Today's Quote

Man filmu žurnalistika ir pavisam nesaistoša blakus nodarbošanas. Es nenododos tai ne tuvu ar tadu profesionalu pamatigumu ka daudzi no maniem biedriem. Kad diena pavadita pie rakstammašinas, ir gluži patikami vakara aizbraukt uz kadu studiju un noskatities izradi. Es skatos caurmera divas, tris filmas nedela. Ziema vairak, vasaras menešos mazak. Telpas ir ertas un majigas. Skatitaji parastie, pazistamie laudis. Izrada vienmer tikai vienu filmu – lieki nenogurdinot. Preses izrades šad tad apmekle aktieri vai režisori, apsestas pedeja rinda un vero žurnalistu reakciju. Tuvojoties godalgošanas laikam, Holivuda specigi sasparojas. Vairojas preses konferences, vairojas pirmizrades ar druzmu, starmetejiem, ar premjeru piedališanos, fotografu bariem, televizijas kameru bidišanos. Savs raibums un spirgtums zinotaja – verotaja gaitam piemit, un tikai loti retais žurnalists maina savu profesiju pret kadu citu, mierigaku darbu"
