Favorite Minerva Mirabal Quotes

1. "One more word about giving instruction as to what the world ought to be. Philosophy in any case always comes on the scene too late to give it. As the thought of the world, it appears only when actuality is already there cut and dried after its process of formation has been completed... When philosophy paints its grey in grey, then has a shape of life grown old. By philosophy's grey in grey it cannot be rejuvenated but only understood. The owl of Minerva spreads its wings only with the falling of the dusk."
Author: Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
2. "De uil van Minerva vliegt pas uit bij het invallen van de duisternis."
Author: Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
3. "In symbolic terms, Great Cthulhu should replace Minerva as the patron spirit of philosophers, and the Miskatonic must dwarf the Rhine and the Ister as our river of choice. Since Heidegger's treatment of Hölderlin resulted mostly in pious, dreary readings, philosophy needs a new literary hero."44"
Author: Graham Harman
4. "—¿Qué hace? —susurró Minerva ante su extrema cercanía que la incomodaba.—Nada —contestó muy tranquilamente sujetando su portafolios para disimular, su erección comenzaba crecer al tenerla muy cerca y sentía que no podía controlarla. Minerva sentía un hormigueo recorrer todo su cuerpo, bajó la cabeza al sentir la respiración de Rick sobre su cara, no podía retroceder, su cuerpo estaba pegado al espejo del ascensor y al sentir el perfume del pecho de Rick tuvo que controlar el retorcer su cuerpo, la cálida respiración de él sobre su cuello comenzaba a hacerle perder sus sentidos los cuales debía mantener con lucidez."

5. "—¿Va a salir? —preguntó él fingiendo no saber nada. Minerva lo miró y pensó su respuesta. —Me voy a mi casa. —Bien, allá hablaremos con más calma. —¿Qué? —la chica se asustó—. No, no… —Sí, sí… —sonrió pícaramente. —Ya le dije que no tenemos nada de qué… —Sabes que sí —Rick se acercó a ella de nuevo pegándola de nuevo al espejo—. No me voy a ir sin una respuesta. —Pero no en mi casa.—No pienso a un lugar público después de lo que pasó, no contigo, tengo una imagen que cuidar y gracias a ti espero no salir en los diarios."

6. "And the day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the supreme being as his father in the womb of a virgin will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter. But we may hope that the dawn of reason and freedom of thought in these United States will do away all this artificial scaffolding...{Letter to John Adams, April 11, 1823}"
Author: John Adams
7. "Lord Bacchus, can you hear me? Nod if you can hear me."Bacchus dropped his hands and nodded."You have never killed a Druid all by yourself, and you never will. Only with hordes of Bacchants and Roman legionnaires and the aid of Minerva have you ever managed to slay a single one of us. Your lackeys may get me eventually, and I know that I will never be able to slay you, but admit to yourself now that you, alone, will never prove my equal. The earth obeys me, son, not some petty god of grape and goblet." I switched to English for a postscript, "So suck on that, bitch."

8. "I'm waiting for her to say "Craig, what you need to do is X" and for the Shift to occur. I want there to be a Shift so bad. I want to feel my brain slide back into the slot it was meant to be in, rest there the way it did before the fall of last year, back when I was young, and witty, and my teachers said I had incredible promise, and I had incredible promise, and I spoke up in class because I was excited and smart about the world. I want the Shift so bad. I'm waiting for the phrase that will invoke it. It'll be like a miracle within my life. But is Dr. Minerva a miracle worker? No. She's a thin, tan lady from Greece with red lipstick."
Author: Ned Vizzini
9. "Do you love him?""I wish people would stop asking me that," Celia muttered under her breath."What people?""Gran." She swallowed. "Mr. Pinter.""Mr. Pinter?" Minerva echoed with decided interest."It's not what you think," Celia protested. "I hired him to find out the truth about my suitors, so he wanted to know if I was in love with any of them."Minerva arched one eyebrow. "And why should he care?""That's what I said. And ever since, he's been baiting me in front of them and telling me awful things about them to blacken them in my mind.""Even Lyons?" Minerva said."Well, no. I mean, I'm sure you've heard about the madness in the duke's family, but beyond that, Jackson hasn't found a single thing-""Jackson?"Celia colored. "Mr. Pinter." When Minerva kept staring, she added sullenly, "We've been in each other's pockets because of the investigation. That's all."

10. "He had to feel those lips on him again. Had. To. This wasn't a mild expression of preference. This was an imperative. His body was insistent. To continue hisexistence on this earth, he now needed the following: food, water, shelter, clothing, and Minerva Highwood's lips."
Author: Tessa Dare
11. "Mama's gaze pierced her. As a girl, Minerva had envied her mother's blue eyes. They'd seemed the color of tropical oceans and cloudless skies. But their color had faded over the years since Papa's death. Now their blue was the hue of dyed cambric worn three seasons. Or brittle middle-class china. The color of patience nearly worn through."
Author: Tessa Dare
12. "[Letter to John Adams]The day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the Supreme Being as his father, in the womb of a virgin will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter (Works, Vol. iv, p. 365)."
Author: Thomas Jefferson
13. "As Hegel put it, only when it is dark does the owl of Minerva begin its flight. Only in extinction is the collector comprehend."
Author: Walter Benjamin
