Top Quotes About Factual Life

1. "What is laid down, ordered, factual is never enough to embrace the whole truth: life always spills over the rim of every cup."
Author: Boris Pasternak
2. "You never stopped thinking of yourself as a writer biding his time in the Department of Factual Verification. But between the job and the life there wasn't much time left over for emotion recollected in tranquillity."
Author: Jay McInerney
3. "There is a relentless search for the factual and this quest often lacks warmth or reverence. At a certain stage in our life we may wake up to the urgency of life, how short it is. Then the quest for truth becomes the ultimate project. We can often forage for years in the empty fields of self-analysis and self-improvement and sacrifice much of our real substance for specks of cold, lonesome factual truth. The wisdom of the tradition reminds us that if we choose to journey on the path of truth, it then becomes a sacred duty to walk hand in hand with beauty."
Author: John O'Donohue
4. "This was almost two hours of factual documentary. In our audience ratings, barely no one left the programme. The whole of his life is so fascinating and people kept watching for that reason."
Author: Martin Bashir
5. "Truthfullness to life—both fantasy life and factual life—is the basis of all great art."
Author: Maurice Sendak
6. ". . . to survive the dark and often terrifying passage of my life I came to believe certain thing about myself . . . I simply came to believe that one, factual circumstances of my life were almost accidental and didn't grow out of my own sould, and two, I possessed something unique, a special strength and depth of feeling that would allow me to withstand the hurt and injustice without being broken by it."
Author: Nicole Krauss
7. "Neither is a memoir the same as a biography, which aims for the most objective, factual account of a life. A memoir, as I understand it, makes no pretense of denying its subjectivity. Its matter is one person's memory, and memory by nature is selective and colored by emotion. Others who participated in the events I describe will no doubt remember some details differently, though I hope we would agree on the essential truths. I have taken no liberties with the past as I remember it, used no fictional devices beyond reconstructing conversations from memory. I have not blended characters, or bent chronology to convenience. And yet I have tried to tell a good story."
Author: Sonia Sotomayor

Today's Quote

Sherlock Holmes prese il suo flacone dall'angolo della mensola del caminetto e la sua siringa ipodermica da un elegante astuccio di marocchino. Con le sue dita lunghe e nervose infilò l'ago sottile e arrotolò la manica sinistra della camicia. Per un po', osservò pensoso l'avambraccio muscoloso e il polso, costellati di innumerevoli segni di punture. Alla fine, infilò con gesto deciso la siringa, premette il pistone e si abbandonò nella poltrona di velluto con un lungo sospiro di soddisfazione.[...]«Cos'è oggi», gli chiesi, «morfina o cocaina?»[...]«Cocaina», rispose, «soluzione al sette per cento. Vuole provarla?»"
Author: Arthur Conan Doyle
