Favorite Irons Quotes

1. "Now, brethren, this is one of our greatest faults in our Christian lives. We are allowing too many rivals of God. We actually have too many gods. We have too many irons in the fire. We have too much theology that we don't understand. We have too much churchly institutionalism. We have too much religion. Actually, I guess we just have too much of too much."
Author: A.W. Tozer
2. "Nous nous confions rarement à ceux qui sont meilleurs que nous. Nous fuirions plutôt leur société. Le plus souvent au contraire, nous nous confions à ceux qui nous ressemblent et qui partagent nos faiblesses. Nous ne désirons donc pas nous corriger ni être améliorés : il faudrait d'abord que nous fussions jugés défaillants. Nous souhaitons seulement être plaints et encouragés dans notre voie. En somme, nous voudrions en même temps ne pas être coupable et ne pas faire l'effort de nous purifier. Pas assez de cynisme et pas assez de vertu. Nous n'avons ni l'énergie du mal, ni celle du bien."
Author: Albert Camus
3. "Avez-vous remarqué que la mort seule réveille nos sentiments? Comme nous aimons les amis qui viennent de nous quitter, n'est-ce pas? Comme nous admirons ceux de nos maîtres qui ne parlent plus, la bouche pleine de terre! L'hommage vient alors tout naturellement, cet hommage que, peut-être, ils avaient attendu de nous toute leur vie. Mais savez-vous pourquoi nous sommes toujours plus justes et plus généreux avec les morts? La raison est simple ! Avec eux, il n'y a pas d'obligation. Ils nous laissent libres, nous pouvons prendre notre temps, caser l'hommage entre le cocktail et une gentille maîtresse, à temps perdu, en somme. S'ils nous obligeaient à quelque chose, ce serait à la mémoire, et nous avons la mémoire courte. Non, c'est le mort frais que nous aimons chez nos amis, le mort douloureux, notre émotion, nous-mêmes enfin!"
Author: Albert Camus
4. "Neka pironska ravnodušnost, ublažena postojanom blagošcu i dobrotom te povremenim proplamsajima snažne tjelesne srasti, bila je njegovo normalno stanje, koje su mu bile odredile njegova urodena i navikom stecena narav."
Author: Aldous Huxley
5. "Dan pulled him in. Anchored him. Secured him, like one mountain climber to the other, rope and irons and nothing but the abyss if the rope failed. "It will work. I haven't got this far to give up.""It'll work." Dan's kisses grew more intense. "It must." Because you're mine, and you belong to me."
Author: Aleksandr Voinov
6. "Forty feet long sixty feet high hotelCovered with old gray for buzzing fliesEye like mango flowing orange pusEars Durga people vomiting in their sleepGot huge legs a dozen buses move inside CalcuttaSwallowing mouthfuls of dead ratsMangy dogs bark out of a thousand breastsGarbage pouring from its ass behind alleysAlways pissing yellow Hooghly waterBellybutton melted Chinatown brown puddlesCoughing lungs Sound going down the sewerNose smell a big gray BidiHeart bumping and crashing over tramcar tracksCovered with a hat of cloudy ironSuffering water buffalo head loweredTo pull the huge cart of year uphill"
Author: Allen Ginsberg
7. "Mais Colin ne savait pas, il courait, il avait peur, pourquoi ça ne suffit pas de toujours rester ensemble, il faut encore qu'on ait peur, peut-être est-ce un accident, une auto l'a écrasée, elle serait sur son lit, je ne pourrais la voir, ils m'empêcheraient d'entrer, mais vous croyez donc peut-être que j'ai peur de ma Chloé, je la verrai malgré vous, mais non, Colin, n'entre pas. Elle est peut-être blessée, seulement, alors, il n'y aura rien du tout, demain, nous irons ensemble au Bois, pour revoir le banc, j'avais sa main dans la mienne et ses cheveux près des miens, son parfum sur l'oreiller. Je prends toujours son oreiller, nous nous battrons encore le soir, le mien, elle le trouve trop bourré, il reste tout rond sous sa tête, et moi, je le reprends après, il sent l'odeur de ses cheveux."
Author: Boris Vian
8. "It's not that fact of him telling me he's not going to kill me that assures me I've got some time to breathe. Predo could look me in the eye and tell me whiskey's good and cigarettes are better and I'd still need a drink and a Lucky to believe he's not lying. The man breeds lies. He spawns them asexually, with no need for any assistance. He exhales and lies fill the air. Alone in a room, he mutters lies to himself to keep from falling into the trap of truth-telling. In the day, sleeping in his bed, deep in the safest heart of Coalition headquarters, he dreams in lies. The better to keep his left hand from knowing what betrayals his right has planned.Stretched on the rack and burned with hot irons, Dexter Predo will be in no danger of revealing the truth. Living so far beyond its borders."
Author: Charlie Huston
9. "Quel guillochis oeuvre par la providence que la vie de l'homme! par combien de voies secretes et contraires les circonstances diverses ne precipitent-elles pas nos affections! aujourd'hui nous aimons ce que demain nous hairons,aujourd'hui nous recherchons ce que nous fuirons demain,aujourd'hui nous desirons ce que demain nous fera peur..."
Author: Daniel Defoe

Thought I have been known to lie."

Motivated by that design, he dared say to him whom he claimed the right to dominate, that a God had forged the irons with which cruelty manacled him; and the latter, bestialized by his misery, indistinctly believed everything the former wished. Can religions, born of these rogueries, merit respect?"

Not what I'd expected at all. And Edward hadn't been any help: "Heavens, how should I know what's there? Whatever was left after my collective vulture of a family descended,I assume..."The first thing I did was to sit down on the sofa. The old leather creaked loudly enough to make me flinch. But it was worth risking the return of Dr. Rothaus to sit where Edward had sat. Only, it didn't feel very significant. Just cold and little slippery."
Author: Melissa Jensen

42. "When Caroline Meeber boarded the afternoon train for Chicago, her total outfit consisted of a small trunk, a cheap imitation alligator-skin satchel, a small lunch in a paper box, and a yellow leather snap purse, containing her ticket, a scrap of paper with her sister's address in Van Buren Street, and four dollars in money. It was in August, 1889. She was eighteen years of age, bright, timid, and full of the illusions of ignorance and youth. Whatever touch of regret at parting characterised her thoughts, it was certainly not for advantages now being given up. A gush of tears at her mother's farewell kiss, a touch in her throat when the cars clacked by the flour mill where her father worked by the day, a pathetic sigh as the familiar green environs of the village passed in review, and the threads which bound her so lightly to girlhood and home were irretrievably broken."
Author: Theodore Dreiser
43. "Castiza: "False! I defy you both!I have endured you with an ear of fire;Your tongues have struck hot irons on my face!Mother, come from that poisonous woman there."Gratiana: "Where?"Castiza: "Do you not see her? She's too inward then."
Author: Thomas Middleton
44. "4. Radicalism of forms. If a new model once created meets with much success on account of its greater efficiency than its predecessor, it lends certain neighbouring forms a formal radicalism, which attempts to borrow from the appearance of the new form: for example, bronze tools that had reached the furthest development of their utility had a disastrous influence on stone tools, warping them toward an elegance that could only be attained in bronze. Today aviation has imposed its aerodynamic forms even on baby strollers and irons. This radicalism of forms is a result of the fact that people become bored when they do not find some unexpected element in the familiar. This radicalism might seem illogical, as the advocates of standardization believe, but we must not forget that discovery is only made possible by this need of humanity."
Author: Tom McDonough
45. "Yowpee! I pulls my brandin' irons an' comes out a-bitin' the dust—a reg'lar Hoopalong Cassowary!"
Author: Walt Kelly
46. "Quant à l'endroit où se trouvait mon père, le jour de ses funérailles, ma mère me l'avait indiqué. C'est un peu loin, mais un jour ou l'autre nous irons le rejoindre, il n'y a pas à craindre de s'égarer. Ton papa est gentil, il est seulement parti devant pour voir comment c'était, m'avait-elle dit."
