Favorite Oasis Quotes

1. "There exists an oasis where inspiration bursts forth like black gold from the fertile loam and every odd bellbird chirps a melody worth remembering. There's no bloody map or nautical chart that can deliver you there, but you know the instant you've arrived because you never ever want to depart."
Author: Adam G. Tarsitano
2. "In the oasis complex, the thirsty man images he sees water, palm trees, and shade not because he has evidence for the belief, but because he has a need for it. Desperate needs bring about a hallucination of their solution: thirst hallucinates water, the need for love hallucinates a prince or princess. The oasis complex is never a complete delusion: the man in the desert does see something on the horizon. It is just that the palms have withered, the well is dry, and the place is infected with locusts."
Author: Alain De Botton
3. "Heredé de mis antepasados las ansias de huir. Dicen que mi sangre es europea. Yo siento que cada glóbulo procede de un punto distinto. De cada nación, de cada provincia, de cada isla, golfo, accidente, archipiélago, oasis. De cada trozo de tierra o de mar han usurpado algo y así me formaron, condenándome a la eterna búsqueda de un lugar de origen. Con los labios expresamente dibujados para exhalar quejas. Con la frente estrujada por todas las dudas. Con la malicia instintiva de la prohibición. Heredé el paso vacilante con objeto de no estatizarme nunca con firmeza en lugar alguno. ¡En todo y en nada! ¡En nada y en todo!"
Author: Alejandra Pizarnik

8. "Mais les vrais voyageurs sont ceux-là seuls qui partentPour partir; coeurs légers, semblables aux ballons,De leur fatalité jamais ils ne s'écartent,Et, sans savoir pourquoi, disent toujours: Allons!Ceux-là dont les désirs ont la forme des nues,Et qui rêvent, ainsi qu'un conscrit le canon,De vastes voluptés, changeantes, inconnues,Et dont l'esprit humain n'a jamais su le nom!"[...]"Amer savoir, celui qu'on tire du voyage!Le monde, monotone et petit, aujourd'hui,Hier, demain, toujours, nous fait voir notre image:Une oasis d'horreur dans un désert d'ennui!Faut-il partir? rester? Si tu peux rester, reste;Pars, s'il le faut. L'un court, et l'autre se tapitPour tromper l'ennemi vigilant et funeste,Le Temps! Il est, hélas! des coureurs sans répit,Comme le Juif errant et comme les apôtres,À qui rien ne suffit, ni wagon ni vaisseau,Pour fuir ce rétiaire infâme; il en est d'autresQui savent le tuer sans quitter leur berceau."
Author: Charles Baudelaire

Author: Charlotte M. Liebel
10. "As a rope is to a mountaineer,As a candle's flame is to the darkest of caves,As a current is to a stream, As a drizzle is to a desert,As shelter is to the nomad,As food is to the hungry,As an oasis is to a weary traveler,As freedom is to a prisoner,As faith is to a theist,Hope is to man."
Author: Chirag Tulsiani
11. "The journey towards success is more like a traveller lost in a desert, desperate to find an oasis, desperate to quench his thirst. But it is not about how grave the thirst is but about how long he chooses to walk thirsty."
Author: Chirag Tulsiani

Who wears cowboy boots ?"

13. "We are an oasis in the desert, beautiful but doomed!"
Author: Clifford Lafrenier
14. "What we would like to do is change the world--make it a little simpler for people to feed, clothe, and shelter themselves as God intended them to do. And, by fighting for better conditions, by crying out unceasingly for the rights of the workers, the poor, of the destitute--the rights of the worthy and the unworthy poor, in other words--we can, to a certain extent, change the world; we can work for the oasis, the little cell of joy and peace in a harried world. We can throw our pebble in the pond and be confident that its ever widening circle will reach around the world. We repeat, there is nothing we can do but love, and, dear God, please enlarge our hearts to love each other, to love our neighbor, to love our enemy as our friend."
Author: Dorothy Day
15. "Azért hoztam létre az OASIS-t, mert soha nem találtam a helyem a valóságban. Nem tudtam, hogyan teremtsek kapcsolatot az emberekkel. Egész életemben féltem. Egészen addig, amíg fel nem fogtam, hogy hamarosan vége. Akkor értettem meg, hogy néha, bármennyire is rémiszto és fájdalmas, a valóság az egyetlen hely, ahol igazi boldogságra találhatunk. És a valóság valós."
Author: Ernest Cline
16. "Morrow […] felt that OASIS had evolved into something horrible. "It had become a self-imposed prison for humanity. A pleasant place for the world to hide from its problems while human civilization slowly collapses, primarily due to neglect."
Author: Ernest Cline
17. "I created the OASIS because I never felt at home in the real world. I didn't know how to connect with the people there. I was afraid, for all of my life, right up until I knew it was ending. That was when I realized, as terrifying and painful as reality can be, it's also the only place where you can find true happiness. Because reality is real."
Author: Ernest Cline
18. "All I know: I could only encounter you, my oasis, coming out of a desert. Deserted myself. This is all right. My futureless and solitary self. When suddenly I hear the voice of the springs--Right away you made me want to sing. To cry. Then to drink. But after the desert, the merest trickle of water sounds like a storm. And ever since, Promethea's every murmur shakes my life like an earthquake. I was asleep. I was not thirsty. It would have been possible for me not to hear the first three tears. Ever since I never sleep. I listen."
Author: Hélène Cixous
19. "I am a man of the old world, a seed that was transplanted by the wind, a seed which failed to blossom in the mushroom oasis of America. I belong on the heavy tree of the past. My allegiance, physical and spiritual, it is with the men of Europe, those who were once Franks, Gauls, Vikings, Huns, Tatars, what not. The climate for my body and soul is here where there is quickness and corruption. I am proud not to belong in this century."
Author: Henry Miller

"...to experience the reality was to suffer a boredom as endless as the illness itself...the boredom of insanity was a great desert, so great that anyone's violence or agony seemed an oasis, and the brief companionship seemed like a rain in the desert that was numbered and counted and remembered long after it was gone."
Author: Joanne Greenberg
22. "For a lot of kids, the Boys and Girls Club is really a sanctuary, an oasis of sanity and safety for them because their home life is so tragic. Some of these kids have only one parent, and that one is addicted to drugs."

Author: Julia Ward Howe
24. "Hey! Remember the '90s?The Clintons were in office, everybody was using AOL, Will Ferrell and Cheri Oteri did "the Cheerleaders" on SNL, and everybody thought Oasis was fantastic. In hindsight, we were all a bunch of potato-salad-eating jackasses."
Author: Julie Klausner
25. "Elizabeth's fingers slipped around my arm. She stepped forward, her fangs flashing. My breath caught, but not in fear.Damn Tiffany and her vampire-bite addiction. I shoved the reaction away just in time for Elizabeth's fangs to break skin.Warmth rushed up my arm, the blaze filling my body, my mind. On my other side, Tatius's hand on my arm was like a cool oasis. I groped for his fingers, locking mine around his, pressing the long side of my body along his, and the fire in my body calmed enough I could still see, still think.Cool."
Author: Kalayna Price

Author: Lynn Austin
30. "Whereas the Arabs were in favour of the man but against the message, the Jews were in favour of the message but against the man. For how could God send a Prophet who was not one of the chosen people? None the less, when the pilgrims brought news of the Prophet to Yathrib, the Jews were interested despite themselves and eagerly questioned them for more details; and when the Arabs of the oasis sensed this eagerness, and when they saw how the monotheistic nature of the message increased the interest of the rabbis tenfold, they could not fail to be impressed, as were the bearers of the tidings themselves."
Author: Martin Lings

35. "It's the oasis," said the camel driver."Well, why don't we go there right now?" the boy asked."Because we have to sleep."
Author: Paulo Coelho
36. "The boy continued to listen to his heart as they crossed the desert. He came to understand its dodges and tricks, and to accept it as it was. He lost his fear, and forgot about his need to go back to the oasis, because, one afternoon, his heart told him that it was happy. "Even though I complain sometimes," it said, "it's because I'm the heart of a person, and people's hearts are that way. People are afraid to pursue their most important dreams, because they feel that they don't deserve them, or that they'll be unable to achieve them. We, their hearts, become fearful just thinking of loved ones who go away forever, or of moments that could have been good but weren't, or of treasures that might have been found but were forever hidden in the sands. Because, when these things happen, we suffer terribly."
Author: Paulo Coelho
37. "I thought if Oasis could get away with sounding like The Beatles, I could get away with sounding like Abba."
Author: Pete Waterman
38. "Martin is always telling me to put all of this behind me, to get on with my life. But the thing is, before Jesse, I never really had a life. I had a routine. I did things. But aside from the accident"—he gestured with his prosthetic arm—"nothing ever happened to me. But she happened. And it was like a train wreck. It was big and painful and beautiful and every second mattered. You know what Beaudelaire said about love? It's ‘an oasis of horror in a desert of boredom.' But it's still an oasis. Our time together—that's the story of my life. Everything before her was just the boring setup. Like the first hour of a miniseries, the part that's just padding to stretch it out for three nights. And the time since she's gone—that's just been some sort of weird, dragged-out anticlimax. I can feel myself sitting in the audience watching my life and wondering, ‘Why isn't this movie over?"
Author: Phoef Sutton
39. "Las Vegas suggests that the thirst for places, for cities and gardens and wilderness, is unslaked, that people will still seek out the experience of wandering about in the open air to examine the architecture, the spectacles, and the stuff for sale, will still hanker after surprises and strangers. That the city as a whole is one of the most pedestrian-unfriendly places in the world suggests something of the problems to be faced, but that its attraction is a pedestrian oasis suggests the possibility of recovering the spaces in which walking is viable."
Author: Rebecca Solnit
40. "Music is a whole oasis in my head. The creation process is so personal and fulfilling."
Author: River Phoenix
41. "All I cared was that she had never lied. She was honest in a world just the opposite, and a cool oasis in my life. She was who she said she was, and everything Sophia, my mother, the pathologically manipulative liar, had never been."
Author: Rob Thurman

Author: Silent Lotus
45. "This book is not the memoir of a contented man. It's not the poignant reflections of a white-haired guru who has finally figured out the secret to contentment. It's more like sweaty, bloody, hastily scribbled notes from a battlefield. I'm still struggling to escape the sinister fingers on this conspiracy. I'm still waging war against the discontentment that rages in my life. I can see contentment in the distance, like a hazy oasis, but I have to pick my way through a minefield to get there. I'm not the contented man God wants me to be, but I'm fighting to get there. I'm writing this book the hope that you'll join me in the fight."
Author: Stephen Altrogge
46. "Although harmony with nature is of considerable importance in planning a garden, it must never be allowed to obscure what lies at the heart of the design;the salvation of the human spirit. In creating a garden, we acquire, by force, a patch of land from the jungle; we mould it so that it becomes an oasis amid the wilderness. It is an endless struggle. Turn our backs for a moment and the darkness of the forest begins its insidious invasion of our tiny haven. The plants that we insert -- artificially, it must be noted, for no garden is a work of Mother Nature -- must not only provide shelter for the soul, they must be able to absorb and then disperse the creeping darkness of the jungle around us. The decorations do not merely adorn, they protect. They create a place where, at the end of our lives, we may find peace."
Author: Tash Aw

49. "Everyone desperately tries to find a sound and to pin you to a sound, like Jake Bugg. They say he sounds like Bob Dylan or Oasis... You can't be a new artist and just be yourself. I mean, I have a whole load of different influences that I don't... There's not just one artist... I mean, I really want to be something that someone hasn't heard before."
Author: Tom Odell
50. "American and Israel share a special bond. Our relationship is unique among all nations. Like America, Israel is a strong democracy, a symbol of freedom, and an oasis of liberty, a home to the oppressed and persecuted."
Author: William J. Clinton

Today's Quote

Isn't it funny how the moments that define our lives the most are almost always the smallest? A scattering of almost inconsequential seconds that steer our course; the proverbial butterfly wings which produce the hurricane of our lives. Single sentences, concepts, and choices-especially choices-which make or break who you are, and who you will become."
Author: Brandon M. Herbert
