Favorite Jive Quotes

1. "I," I start, and she turns to look at my lips moving, rehearsing for some grand proposal. "I think it'd be good idea if you brought a few books over and left them on my shelf." I'm a writer, and this is as good as it gets. She didn't need a ring, just the ability to borrow a bookmark whenever she needed, or unwritten or unspoken permission to take my copy of Cecil Brown's The Life and Loves of Mr. Jiveass Nigger with the original cover."

2. "U srednjem sloju nikada nema neugodnih iznenadenja i strahova. Stišcu se jedno uz drugo u iluziji da ce im tako biti toplije. U osrednjosti nikada nisi sam, a ponajmanje sam sa sobom. Kako li su samo zadovoljni takvim stanjem stvari! Ne moraju si predbacivati ni zbog cega u životu niti im itko išta može predbaciti zbog njihova života. I Erikino predbacivanje da im je neka izvedba neuspjela odbija se o mekan zid njihove strpljive osrednjosti. Ona, Erika, sama je s druge strane zida i umjesto da se ponosni time, ona im se zbog toga osvecuje. Tako da ih svaka tri mjeseca tjera kroz drvena vratašca obora, što ih mora širom držati otvorena da bi te budale uopce mogle uci. S izrazom samozadovoljstva i dosade na licu, mekecuci i gurkajuci se, ulaze u obor, a glupana koji je zastao da dohvati kaput u zadnjem redu garderobe, jednostavno pregaze. Najprije žele uci, a zatim što prije izici. I to svi zajedno. Misle: dodu li brže na pašnjak glazbe, moci ce prije otici."
Author: Elfriede Jelinek
3. "Seriously, what is the purpose? Maybe I'd feel better about walking around speaking fluent jive if I knew there was a reason for it."
Author: Elle Lothlorien
4. "Biti covek, roden bez svoga znanja i bez svoje volje, bacen u okean postojanja. Morati plivati. Postojati. Nositi identitet. Izdržati atmosferski pritisak svega oko sebe, sve sudare, nepredvidljive i nepredvidene postupke, svoje i tude, koji ponajcešce nisu po meri naših snaga. A povrh svega, treba još izdržati i svoju misao o svemu tome. Ukratko: biti covek"
Author: Ivo Andric
5. "Jive has been really, really good to me."
Author: Kris Allen
6. "I stay cool, and dig all jive,That's the way I stay alive.My motto, as I live and learn, isDig and be dugIn return."

7. "I didn't know that Left Eye's dad passed away right when she wanted to tell him that she just signed to LaFace Records. After I signed to Jive Records and just before I put out my first album, my mother passed away. It was very odd how much we had in common."
Author: Lil Mama
8. "Ne, ne valja sprecavati da se sila razvagni. Neka bije. Neka udari. Pustite silnika da se sav utopi u svojem zlu. Neka se bijele ruke pretvore u grabežljive pandže da je ljudstvo prepozna. Pustite silu neka juri na divljem konju jer od divljeg topota probudit ce slabost i ustati na noge kao novorodena jakost."
Author: Marija Jurić Zagorka
9. "Wouldst like to con a glimmer with me this early black?', which he [Cab Calloway] helpfully explains as ‘the proper way to ask a young lady to go to the movies'. It should be noted here, that if the object of your affections replies ‘Kill me', they are not requesting to be euthanatised and you should not actually murder them. Kill me is merely the Cab Calloway way of saying ‘Show me a good time' and is the best response you could have hoped for. Jive was rather confusing in this way."
Author: Mark Forsyth
10. "Najljepše i najdublje citateljsko iskustvo ostvarujemo upravo dok citamo svoje pisce... Poznat nam je društveni i povijesni kontekst u kojem su djela nastala, razumljive su nam aluzije na koje nailazimo, igre rijeci, poznati su nam opisani prostori, a o razumijevanju mentaliteta ne moram ni govoriti. Kao citatelji najviše profitiramo citajuci svoje književnike."
Author: Miro Gavran
11. "But of course the Western changed along with America's view of itself, from some sort of heroic country, where everybody's free, to the spiritually fucked-up defiled place it really is, and now you got jive Italians, if you can feature that, making the only Westerns worth seeing anymore because white America's just too fucking confused, can't figure out whether to embrace the myth or the anti-myth, so in a country where folks always figured you can escape your past, now the word is out that this is the country where you can do no such thing, this is the one place where, like the jive that finally becomes impossible to distinguish from the anti-jive, honor becomes impossible to distinguish from betrayal or just, you know, stone cold murder..."
Author: Steve Erickson
12. "...we all face similar pressures to forget the simple truth of who we are. Particularly the truths that don't jive with what we see around us. As time wears us down we can forget who we once were."
Author: Ted Dekker
13. "Devojke su poput jabuka na stablima.Najbolje se nalaze na vrhu stabla.Ljudi ne žele doci do najboljih, jer se boje da ce pasti i povrediti se.Umesto toga, uzimaju trule jabuke koje su pale na zemlju, i koje, iako nisu tako dobre,do njih lakše dodu.Zato jabuke koje se nalaze na vrhu stabla, misle da s njima nešto nije u redu, dok su zapravo one velicanstvene.Jednostavno moraju biti strpljive i cekati da pravi covek dode, onaj koji je tako hrabar da se popne do vrha stabla zbog njih.Ne smemo pasti da nas dohvate, kome trebamo i voli nas napravice SVE da dode do nas.Žena je izašla iz rebra muškarca, a ne iz nogu da bude gažena, niti iz glave da bude nadmocna.Nego sa boka da bude jednaka, ispod ruke da bude zašticena, i blizu srca da bude voljena."
Author: William Shakespeare
