Favorite Morat Quotes

1. "Sono innamorata dello smettere. A suo modo è un'arte, se ci pensate. Smettere bene richiede un innato senso della bellezza; bisogna saper sentire il momento della svolta, proprio quando il desiderio fa la sua comparsa, quello è il momento di darci un taglio, giù deciso, l'istante in cui lo smettere è maturo come una pesca che si fa dolce sull'albero: crack, si spacca il picciolo, la pesca cade per terra, nera e argento di mosche."
Author: Aimee Bender
2. "Why do we not care to acknowledge them? The cattle, the body count. We still don't like to admit the war was even partly our fault because so many of our people died. A photograph on every mantlepiece. And all this mourning has veiled the truth. It's not so much lest we forget, as lest we remember. Because you should realise the Cenotaph and the Last Post and all that stuff is concerned, there's no better way of forgetting something than by commemorating it."
Author: Alan Bennett
3. "Strano come certi ridicoli rituali appaiano perfettamente sensati quando si è innamorati."
Author: Alexandra Adornetto
4. "Finally, I felt him, exactly where he was meant to be. Barely nudging inside, just the feeling of him entering me was earth-shattering. My own needs quieted for the moment, I watched his face as he began to press inside me for the first time. His eyes bore into mine as I cradled his face in my hands. He looked as though he wanted to say something, and I wondered. What words would we speak, what wonderfully loving things would we say to commemorate this moment?"Hi.""Hi."
Author: Alice Clayton
5. "Time is ungovernable, but grief presents us with a choice: what do we do with the savage energies of bereavement? What do we do with the memory - or in the memory - of the beloved? Some commemorate love with statuary, but behavior, too, is a memorial, as is a well-lived life. In death, there is always the promise of hope. The key is opening, rather than numbing, ourselves to pain. Above all, we must show our children how to celebrate existence in all its beauty, and how to get up after life has knocked us down, time and again. Half-dead, we stand. And together, we salute love. Because in the end, that's all that matters. How hard we loved, and how hard we tried."
Author: Antonella Gambotto Burke
6. "- Galahad - mi diceva - è innamorato della perfezione ed è troppo schizzinoso per amare una donna in carne e ossa. Ama le donne come concetto, ma non sopporta la loro realtà, le malattie, il dolore, il sangue.- Be', non ha mai provato fastidio per cose del genere, in battaglia - commentai io.- Certo - replicò Ceinwyn - ma in battaglia, coperti di sangue o ferite, ci sono solo uomini e Galahad non ha difficoltà ad ammetterne i difetti. Non ha mai idealizzato gli uomini: solo le donne."
Author: Bernard Cornwell
7. "On the 11th anniversary of 9/11, it is some consolation that the man most responsible for that terrible morning will not be smiling smugly to himself as satellite TV brings to the leafy boulevards of Abbottabad the somber images of New Yorkers commemorating those who perished in the Twin Towers."
Author: Bobby Ghosh
8. "As a scar commemorates what happened, so is memory but itself a scar."
Author: Carl Phillips
9. "Morat ce proci još mnogo godina prije nego što Max zaboravi ljeto kad je otkrio, gotovo sasma slucajno, magiju."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón
10. "If the executioner goes, my package will never be made public. If he doesn't go, it will be made public exactly fifty years from the day the bill for a moratorium on capital punishment is defeated."
Author: Caryl Chessman
11. "Mi guardo bene dal tenermi in gola le parole: ho passato gran parte della mia vita a non dire le cose che volevo dire, e me ne sono pentito. La nostra natura ci impone di mandare messaggi subliminali, comunicare con i gesti, perché abbiamo paura di esporci per come siamo. Anche a noi stessi. Quando tutto sarà finito sono sicuro che mi verrà concesso un minuto per ripensare a tutte le volte che volevo urlare cosa sentivo, ma sono stato zitto per paura di non essere capito, e rimpiangerò gli obbiettivi che ho abbandonato perché il timore di fallire mi ha impedito di perseguirli. Questa vita è una puttana e probabilmente mi spezzerà il cuore, ma cazzo, sono innamorato. Va così, rhum e pera, perché ci sono dei momenti forti che ti lasciano l'amaro in bocca, e altri talmente belli da farti dimenticare quel retrogusto sgradevole che ha la vita"
Author: Charles Bukowski
12. "As individuals die every moment, how insensitive and fabricated a love it is to set aside a day from selfish routine in prideful, patriotic commemoration of tragedy. Just as God is provoked by those who tithe simply because they feel that they must tithe, I am provoked by those who commemorate simply because they feel that they must commemorate."
Author: Criss Jami
13. "How do you commemorate a year?A paper anniversary, but we arethe words written down, not the paper."
Author: David Levithan
14. "So, it was done, the break was made, in words at least: on July 2, 1776, in Philadelphia, the American colonies declared independence. If not all thirteen clocks had struck as one, twelve had, and with the other silent, the effect was the same.It was John Adams, more than anyone, who had made it happen. Further, he seems to have understood more clearly than any what a momentous day it was and in the privacy of two long letters to Abigail, he poured out his feelings as did no one else:The second day of July 1776 will be the most memorable epocha in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the Day of Deliverance by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other from this time forward forever more."
Author: David McCullough
15. "If psychoanalysis was late-19th-century secular Judaism's way of constructing spiritual meaning in a post-religious world and retail is the late 20th century's way of constructing meaning in a postreligious world, what does it mean that I'm impersonating the father of psychoanalysis in a store window to commemorate a religious holiday?"
Author: David Rakoff
16. "Perché stava giocando, ne ero certa. Quello non era amore, i diavoli non provavano amore, lo sapevano tutti. Eppure, non appena tutta quella visione svanì, e voltandomi potei riguardare l'aspetto umano di Azazael, nei suoi occhi intravidi questa volta una bagliore. Non era sovrannaturale, o forse sì, forse quello scintillio nello sguardo che possedevano tutte le persone innamorate alla vista del loro amore era quanto di più divino potesse esistere nel creato."
Author: Diletta Brizzi
17. "Rinacque con nuove fattezze e un nuovo nome e dall'unione di astuzia e seduzione non poteva che nascere lui, la malizia, il piacere di un istante raggiunto tramite mezzi sottili e subdoli, ma anche l'amore vissuto secondo la propria volontà andando contro ogni dogma, umano o divino, imposto con la paura. Il Principe dei peccatori della carne e degli innamorati più sfrenati e sregolati, Sytry."
Author: Diletta Brizzi
18. "Ako više ne želite stvarati bol sebi i drugima, ako više ne želitepovecavati ostatke bolova iz prošlosti koji još žive u vama, tada višene stvarajte vrijeme ili ga barem ne stvarajte više nego što je potrebnodok se bavite prakticnim vidovima vlastita života. Kako prestatistvarati vrijeme? Duboko u sebi shvatite kako uvijek imate samosadašnji trenutak. Neka Sada postane prvobitna žarišna tocka vašegaživota. Dok ste prije boravili u vremenu i tek nakratko posjecivaliSadašnji trenutak, sada prebivajte u njemu, a tek nakratko posjecujteprošlost i buducnost kad se morate pozabaviti prakticnim vidovimasvoje životne situacije. Sadašnjem trenutku uvijek recite: »Da«. Što bimoglo biti jalovije i lude nego stvarati unutarnji otpor necemu štovec postoji! Sto bi moglo biti lude nego se suprotstavljati samom životu,koji jest sada i uvijek samo sada? Predajte se onome što jest. Recite»da« životu - i vidjet cete kako život iznenada pocinje raditi zavas, umjesto da vam se suprotstavlja."
Author: Eckhart Tolle
19. "Na trenutak morate odložiti osobnu prtljagu problema, prošlosti ibuducnosti, kao i sve svoje znanje; inace cete vidjeti, ali necete vidjeti,cut cete, ali necete cuti. Potrebna je vaša apsolutna prisutnost."
Author: Eckhart Tolle
20. "Honorius Hatchard had been old Miss Hatchard's great-uncle; though she would undoubtedly have reversed the phrase, and put forward, as her only claim to distinction, the fact that she was his great-niece. For Honorius Hatchard, in the early years of the nineteenth century, had enjoyed a modest celebrity. As the marble tablet in the interior of the library informed its infrequent visitors, he had possessed marked literary gifts, written a series of papers called "The Recluse of Eagle Range," enjoyed the acquaintance of Washington Irving and Fitz-Greene Halleck, and been cut off in his flower by a fever contracted in Italy. Such had been the sole link between North Dormer and literature, a link piously commemorated by the erection of the monument where Charity Royall, every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon, sat at her desk under a freckled steel engraving of the deceased author, and wondered if he felt any deader in his grave than she did in his library."
Author: Edith Wharton
21. "E' cominciato dalla mano, che si è innamorata della tua."
Author: Erri De Luca
22. "Yes, as we travel through this topsy-turvy, sinful world, filled with temptations and problems, we are humbled by the expectancy of death, the uncertainty of life, and the power and love of God. Sadness comes to all of us in the loss of loved ones. "But there is gratitude also. Gratitude for the assurance we have that life is eternal. Gratitude for the great gospel plan, given freely to all of us. Gratitude for the life, teachings, and sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ, whose resurrection we will commemorate in the immediate days ahead"
Author: Ezra Taft Benson
23. "Quando avevi tutte quelle attenzioni nei miei riguardi pensavo che mi stessi amando, che solo una persona innamorata potesse fare certi gesti. Invece mi sbagliavo. Oppure no, non mi sbagliavo e per qualche minuto sei anche riuscito a essere veramente innamorato."
Author: Fabio Volo
24. "Ho capito in quell'istante di essere veramente innamorato, ma nel senso della parola inglese: in love. Forse non eravamo nemmeno due persone innamorate l'una dell'altra ma innamorate di ciò che ci univa. Come due musicisti jazz: ciò che li unisce non è l'amore dell'uno per l'altro, ma l'amore che entrambi hanno per la musica. Ciò che creano."
Author: Fabio Volo
25. "My religious convictions and scientific views cannot at present be more specifically defined than as those of a believer in creative revolution. I desire that no public monument or work of art or inscription or sermon or ritual service commemorating me shall suggest that I accepted the tenets peculiar to any established church or denomination nor take the form of a cross or any other instrument of torture or symbol of blood sacrifice."
Author: George Bernard Shaw
26. "It is a matter of public shame that while we have now commemorated our hundredth anniversary, not one in every ten children attending Public schools throughout the colonies is acquainted with a single historical fact about Australia."
Author: Henry Lawson
27. "Se infelice è l'innamorato che invoca baci di cui non sa il sapore, mille volte più infelice è chi questo sapore gustò appena e poi gli fu negato."
Author: Italo Calvino
28. "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
29. "My birthday is on a holiday, I just have to wait until I die and they commemorate me."
Author: Jarod Kintz
30. "One by one, drops fell from her eyes like they were on an assembly line - gather, fall, slide...gather, fall, slide...each one commemorating something she had lost. Hope. Faith. Confidence. Pride. Security. Trust. Independence. Joy. Beauty. Freedom. Innocence."
Author: Lisi Harrison
31. "You see that stones are worn away by time,Rocks rot, and twoers topple, even the shrinesAnd images of the gods grow very tired,Develop crack or wrinkles, their holy willsUnable to extend their fated term,To litigate against the Laws of Nature.And don't we see the monuments of menCollapse, as if to ask us, "Are not weAs frail as those whom we commemorate?"?Boulders come plunging down from the mountain heights,Poor weaklings with no power to resistThe thrust that says to them, Your time has come!But they would be rooted in steadfastnessHad they endured from time beyond all time,As far back as infinity. Look about you!Whatever it is that holds in its embraceAll earth, if it projects, as some men say,All things out of itself, and takes them backWhen they have perished, must itself consistOf mortal elements. The parts must addUp to the sum. Whatever gives awayMust lose in the procedure, and gain againWhenever it takes back."
Author: Lucretius
32. "I also remember being struck by de Sade's will, in which he asked that his ashes be scattered to the four corners of the earth in the hope that humankind would forget both his writings and his name. I'd like to be able to make that demand; commemorative ceremonies are not only false but dangerous, as are all statues of famous men. Long live forgetfulness, I've always said—the only dignity I see is in oblivion."
Author: Luis Buñuel
33. "Ako služite dobru, morate biti spremni da ce se zlo buniti. To je život. Utakmica dobra i zla, poštenja s nepoštenjem."
Author: Marija Jurić Zagorka
34. "Svaka žena ceka gospodina Browna i njegovu tajanstvenu izbocinu, vjernoga onkraj groba; onda odjednom shvati da ono što ceka uopce ne postoji i da ce morati prihvatiti nešto drugorazredno. Kakvo razocarenje."
Author: Marina Lewycka
35. "Last week, the House of Representatives passed a resolution honoring the victims and heroes of September 11th. As we commemorate the anniversary of 9-11, we must also remember that the threat is still very real today."
Author: Michael McCaul
36. "He'd end up back in his room again, moodily smoking whatever he could get his hands on, the sole source of light in the room the faint radioactive glow coming from the commemorative chunk of Earth in its crystal cube, inscribed with the famous quote from the Administration. AT LEAST WE GOT THE TERRORISTS, it said."
Author: Michael Rubens
37. "We open our mouths and out flow words whose ancestries we do not even know. We are walking lexicons. In a single sentence of idle chatter we preserve Latin, Anglo-Saxon, Norse; we carry a museum inside our heads, each day we commemorate people of whom we have never heard. More than that, we speak volumes – our language is the language of everything we have read. Shakespeare and the Authorised Version surface in supermarkets, on buses, chatter on radio and television. I find this miraculous. I never cease to wonder at it. That words are more durable than anything, that they blow with the wind, hibernate and reawaken, shelter parasitic on the most unlikely hosts, survive and survive and survive."
Author: Penelope Lively
38. "My cooking is so bad my kids thought Thanksgiving was to commemorate Pearl Harbor."
Author: Phyllis Diller
39. "»Pratite me do sobe?« upitala je i ne pokušavajuciprikriti razdražljivost.»Da.« Ali ni on nije zvucao sretno zbog toga.»Zašto? Ne morate me pratiti do sobe.«»Ja sam drag momak.«Trpko se nasmijala i pogledala ga krajickom oka.»Ako to stvarno mislite, gadno se varate. Možda su vaspreviše puta udarili u glavu.«"
Author: Rachel Gibson
40. "She grabs my hand and squeezes. Then she looks me up and down, frowning. "You're disgusting.""I dressed to commemorate the time you dragged me through the desert."
Author: Rae Carson
41. "Otkrio sam da ljudi znatan dio vremena troše oko brige što drugi misle o njima. Kada se nitko od nas ne bi brinuo što se vrzma po tudim glavama, naši bi životi i poslovi bili 33% djelotvorniji.Kako sam došao upravo do tog postotka? Ja sam znanstvenik. Volim egzaktne cifre, cak i kad ih ne mogu opravdati. Zato krenimo s navedenom brojkom.- Ne morate se brinuti oko onoga što ja mislim. Bilo dobro ili loše, ja cu vam to dati do znanja - obicavao sam govoriti clanovima svoje istraživacke grupe.To znaci da sam govorio izravno i ne uvijek takticno ako mi nešto nije bilo po volji. Znao sam ih i umiriti prikazujuci to u pozitivnom svjetlu. - Ako ne kažem ništa, znaci da nemate o cemu brinuti — rekao bih.Studenti i kolege su cijenili ovakav nacin komunikacije jer nisu morali gubiti vrijeme opterecujuci se »što Randy misli«. Zato što je ono što sam najcešce mislio bilo: u mom timu nalaze se ljudi koji rade 33% ucinkovitije od bilo koga drugog. Eto to mi je bilo u glavi."
Author: Randy Pausch
42. "Here, then, is how we can get sinners to cry out, according to Paris Reidhead: If I had my way, I would declare a moratorium on public preaching of "the plan of salvation" in America for one to two years. Then I would call on everyone who has use of the airwaves and the pulpits to preach the holiness of God, the righteousness of God, and the Law of God, until sinners would cry out, "What must we do to be saved?" Then I would take them off in a corner and whisper the gospel to them. Don't use John 3:16. Such drastic action is needed because we have gospel-hardened a generation of sinners by telling them how to be saved before they have any understanding why they need to be saved."
Author: Ray Comfort
43. "The woman laughed again. She was the loudest person in the cave. Eena wondered if perhaps she was talking to a female Ghengat. Curiosity got the best of her and she turned around to look, surprised to find neither a Ghengat nor a Harrowbethian woman, but a Mishmorat. A striking, cheetah-spotted Mishmorat with straight lengths of charcoal hair and the most alluring dark eyes. This bronzed woman was the same size as Eena but exceptionally muscular. She appeared to be a mix of cheetah, Arabian princess, and gladiator in tight-fitting pants. Eena paused, dropping the stone in her hands. "Kira?" she breathed. "Hmmm," the woman grumbled. Her painted eyes scrunched with displeasure. The look was still stunning. "I see my reputation precedes me." Eena gawked as if a legendary ghost had been resurrected. "You're alive?"
Author: Richelle E. Goodrich
44. "The watchful Mishmorat commented as she waited. "Your people are so bare—so pale and plain." "Oh?" Eena turned her head towards Niki, zeroing in on her long spotted arms. Their skin was arguably more striking—darker, artistic, with varied patterns and rich color. "I'm sorry," the Mishmorat quickly apologized. "I didn't mean to be rude. It's just I've never seen such unblemished skin before. There's nothing to look at." Eena quickly pulled the new t-shirt down over her bare back. She chuckled at Niki's comment. "I'll admit your people are very beautiful, much more interesting to gaze at. But, I'm okay with my ‘plainness'." Eena contemplated her own pale legs as she pulled the clean pants over them. "You're kinda like a clear, cloudless sky," Niki said, cocking her head wonderingly. "And you're like…..a beautiful sky dotted with shapely clouds." "Only dark clouds." "Storm clouds." "Yeah," Niki grinned devilishly, "That's me—a storm cloud."
Author: Richelle E. Goodrich
45. "Life's gonna kick you in the butt.That's what it does. But if you gotta put up with this crap, the least you can expect is that your friends will stand by you. I mean, for crying in the night, what else are friends for but to help you make right what isn't in life? (Kira, The Mishmorat)"
Author: Richelle E. Goodrich
46. "La giraffa ha il cuore lontano dai pensieri. Si è innamorata ieri, e ancora non lo sa."
Author: Stefano Benni
47. "- Non possiamo sempre aspettare con pazienza. E' come in amore. Ci innamoriamo di una persona e subito il nostro tempo accelera, l'abbiamo lasciata un momento fa e subito vorremmo rivederla, le ore lontano da lei sembrano lunghissime. Allora corriamo, scavalchiamo ostacoli e barriere, solo per raggiungerla un minuto prima. Michelle, lei ha fretta perchè è innamorata del suo futuro, del suo mestiere,del desiderio di tornare alle luci del teatro"
Author: Stefano Benni
48. "Tanto vale bersi l'oceano con un cucchiaino piuttosto che discutere con un innamorato."
Author: Stephen King
49. "For the whole earth is the tomb of famous men; not only are they commemorated by columns and inscriptions in their own country, but in foreign lands there dwells also an unwritten memorial of them, graven not on stone but in the hearts of men. Make them your examples, and, esteeming courage to be freedom and freedom to be happiness, do not weigh too nicely the perils of war."[Funeral Oration of Pericles]"
Author: Thucydides
50. "Quando un bambino di sette anni, isolato e sempre solo, scopre che a meno di una giornata di cammino c'è un altro bambino della sua età, è capace di tutto per trovarlo. È la magia della calamita, che i bambini conoscono bene.E anche gli innamorati."
Author: Timothée De Fombelle
