Favorite Hiest Quotes

1. "How could poetry and literature have arisen from something as plebian as the cuneiform equivalent of grocery-store bar codes? I prefer the version in which Prometheus brought writing to man from the gods. But then I remind myself that…we should not be too fastidious about where great ideas come from. Ultimately, they all come from a wrinkled organ that at its healthiest has the color and consistency of toothpaste, and in the end only withers and dies."
Author: Alice Weaver Flaherty

3. "The rituals surrounding vacations among Manhattan's wealthiest and best-connected citizens are strange and specific. By vacations I don't mean country houses, which are part of the regular ebb and flow of life and which are frequently subjects for complaint - The kids never want to go! The caretaker missed the roof leak! The pipes froze! - as though having a six-thousand-square-foot, cedar-shingled cottage on five acres overlooking the ocean is nothing more or less than a constant test of character."
Author: Anna Quindlen
4. "Even the wealthiest professional woman can be "brought down" by being in a relationship where she longs to be loved and is consistently lied to. To the degree that she trusts her male companion, lying and other forms of betrayal will most likely shatter her self-confidence and self-esteem."
Author: Bell Hooks
5. "La mia regina ha alzato le spalle con aria sprezzante. - L'istruzione è così importante?- Penso di sì. Ho sempre rimpianto di non conoscere il latino.- Perché? - mi ha chiesto Igraine.- Perché buona parte delle esperienze dell'umanità sono tramandate in quella lingua, regina, è l'istruzione ci permette di scoprire ciò che gli uomini del passato conoscevano, o sognavano, o temevano. Quando siamo nei guai, è utile vedere che qualcuno ha già affrontato gli stessi problemi. Contribuisce a farci capire le cose."
Author: Bernard Cornwell

Author: Deepak Chopra
17. "Lo aveva accolto nella sua vita senza riserve. Non gli aveva chiesto rinunce. Gli aveva aperto la casa, l'ufficio, perfino le carte del lavoro. Un altro, al posto suo, e soprattutto lui stesso, pensava, avrebbe fatto i salti di gioia. Invece Livio si sentiva privato di una cosa importante. Ad ogni incontro con lei si accorgeva di dipendere un altro po' dalla sua bocca chiusa, da quel secondo posto accettato con naturalezza. Come se la certezza che l'assetto della sua vita non fosse minacciato da Dorina, invece di rassicurarlo, gli mettesse dentro l'inquietudine. Quante volte, nel salutarla per andarsene, la guardava cercandole uno straccio di rancore. Quanto avrebbe dato per un'alzata di sopracciglia, una smorfia da niente. Per non sentirsi addosso quella ridicola infelicità."
Author: Diego De Silva

22. "Ti ricordi quando mi hai chiesto se avevo le pastiglie per la felicità? La pastiglia è la vita. Vivi, buttati, apriti, ascoltati. Le tue paure, le tue ansie sono dovute al fatto che tu esisti ma non vivi. Sei castrato nei sentimenti. Sei bloccato. Ti ricordi quella frase di Oscar Wilde? Diceva che vivere era la cosa più rara al mondo. La maggior parte della gente esiste e nulla più."
Author: Fabio Volo
23. "Qualche giorno fa, mentre pensavo alla mia vita, mi sono chiesta quanti uomini ci sono voluti perché potessi essere pronta per quello di oggi. In realtà ho capito che la domanda era sbagliata: quante donne ho dovuto indossare per essere pronta per l'uomo di oggi?"
Author: Fabio Volo
24. "As a working definition of art, I lean toward Tolstoy's: "Art is a human activity having for it's purpose the transmission to other of the highest and best feelings to which mankind has risen." It seems to me that, regarding agrarian art, the farther it moves away from the natural world, especially when the main goal is money profits, the more difficult it becomes for it to reflect "the highest and best feelings" of humanity. The same is true of, of course, of agriculture itself. The farther it tries to remove itself from nature in search of money, the more it moves away from the highest and healthiest kinds of food."
Author: Gene Logsdon
25. "Countries with a high percentage of nonbelievers are among the freest, most stable, best-educated, and healthiest nations on earth. When nations are ranked according to a human-development index, which measures such factors as life expectancy, literacy rates, and educational attainment, the five highest-ranked countries -- Norway, Sweden, Australia, Canada, and the Netherlands -- all have high degrees of nonbelief. Of the fifty countires at the bottom of the index, all are intensly religious. The nations with the highest homicide rates tend to be more religious; those with the greatest levels of gender equality are the least religious. These associations say nothing about whether atheism leads to positive social indicators or the other way around. But the idea that atheists are somehow less moral, honest, or trustworthy have been disproven by study after study."
Author: Greg Graffin

33. "America is the wealthiest nation on Earth, but its people are mainly poor, and poor Americans are urged to hate themselves.... It is in fact a crime for an American to be poor, even though America is a nation of poor. Every other nation has folk traditions of men who were poor but extremely wise and virtuous, and therefore more estimable than anyone with power and gold. No such tales are told by American poor. They mock themselves and glorify their betters."
Author: Kurt Vonnegut

37. "What did I think I was doing? What did she think she was doing? When I want to kiss people in that way now, with mouths and tongues and all that, it's because I want other things too: sex, Friday nights at the cinema, company and conversation, fused networks of family and friends, Lemsips brought to me in bed when I am ill, a new pair of ears for my records and CDs, maybe a little boy called Jack and a little girl called Holly or Maisie, I haven't decided yet. But I didn't want any of those things from Alison Ashworth. Not children, because we were children, and not Friday nights at the pictures, because we went Saturday mornings, and not Lemsips, because my mum did that, not even sex, especially not sex, please God not sex, the filthiest and most terrifying invention of the early seventies."
Author: Nick Hornby

Author: Sarah Wayne Callies

44. "According to the IRS, the wealthiest 400 Americans, who earned an average of roughly $270 million in 2008, paid an average tax rate of just 18.2 percent that year. That's about the same rate paid by a single truck driver in Rhode Island. It's not right, and we need to restore fairness to our tax code."
Author: Sheldon Whitehouse
45. "As you will see in this book, there is a mountain of scientific evidence to show that the healthiest diet you can possibly consume is a high-carbohydrate diet. It has been shown to reverse heart disease, reverse diabetes, prevent a plethora of chronic diseases, and yes, it has been shown many times to cause significant weight loss. But it's not quite as simple as that. At least 99% of the carbohydrates that we"
Author: T. Colin Campbell
46. "What made this project especially remarkable is that, among the many associations that are relevant to diet and disease, so many pointed to the same finding: people who ate the most animal-based foods got the most chronic disease. Even relatively small intakes of animal-based food were associated with adverse effects. People who ate the most plant-based foods were the healthiest and tended to avoid chronic disease. These results could not be ignored. From the initial experimental animal studies on animal protein effects to this massive human study on dietary patterns, the findings proved to be consistent. The health implications of consuming either animal or plant-based nutrients were remarkably different."
Author: T. Colin Campbell
47. "The desire for a nonviolent and cooperative world is the healthiest of all psychological manifestations. This is the overarching principle of liberation and revolution.

Author: Ward Churchill

Author: Werner Herzog
49. "All of us have failed to match our dream of perfection. I rate us on the basis of our splendid failure to do the impossible. If I could write all my work again, I'm convinced I could do it better. This is the healthiest condition for an artist. That's why he keeps working, trying again: he believes each time that this time he will do it, bring it off. Of course he won't."
Author: William Faulkner
50. "The most vibrant of flowers often come from the filthiest of soils."
