Favorite Pit Quotes

1. "This is so true that we rarely confide in those who are better than we. Rather, we are more inclined to flee their society. Most often, on the other hand, we confess to those who are like us and who share our weaknesses. Hence we don't want to improve ourselves or be bettered, for we should first have to be judged in default. We merely wish to be pitied and encouraged in the course we have chosen. In short, we should like, at the same time, to cease being guilty and yet not to make the effort of cleansing ourselves. Not enough cynicism and not enough virtue We lack the energy of evil as well as the energy of good."
Author: Albert Camus

4. "Conozco un planeta en el que hay un señor coloradote. Nunca ha olido una flor. Nunca ha mirado una estrella. Nunca ha querido a nadie. Nunca ha hecho más que sumas.

Author: Antoine De Saint Exupéry
5. "La producción en una sociedad capitalista, de hecho, no es más que el proceso puesto en marcha por el propietario del capital que se inicia y continúa con el empleo simultáneo de un grupo de trabajadores, cuyos esfuerzos se juntan y conjugan para conseguir ciertos própositos. Por esa conjugación, o valga decir, por la cooperación que entonces se pone en marcha, los poderes productivos del trabajo se acrecientan, haciéndose cada vez más eficiente la obtención de los resultados materiales buscados"."
Author: Asdrúbal Baptista
6. "The body of the Word, then, being a real human body, in spite of its having been uniquely formed from a virgin, was of itself mortal and, like other bodies, liable to death. But the indwelling of the Word loosed it from this natural liability, so that corruption could not touch it. Thus is happened that two opposite marvels took place at once: the death of all was consummated in the Lord's body; yet, because the Word was in it, death and corruption were in the same act utterly abolished."
Author: Athanasius Of Alexandria

You have to live with the fact that history can never champion your causes and that history will never feel sorry for you. It is the price that is paid for day-to-day comfort and silence. And because of this price, all happinesses are sterile; all sadnesses go unpitied."
Author: Douglas Coupland

Whoever can spit on the most people becomes their legislator, and whoever dares the most has the most right! So it has been in the past, and so it will always be!"
Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
15. "A cretiniza înseamna a-i rapi fiin?ei umane tot absolutul la care poate spera. Birocra?ii Bisericii au ucis absolutul cerului prin ritual ?i dogma. Birocra?ii societa?ii noastre fals democratice ne-au infantilizat în fa?a Raului amputându-i omului solitudinea tragica, înecându-l într-o mul?ime de activita?i "societale". Chiar ?i arta, ultima sursa de absolut, este domesticita: arti?tii sunt ni?te aparatciki în solda Ministerului Culturii, pictura moderna nu mai este decât un produs de capitalizare propus de bancheri, sculptura de avangarda, mobilier pentru holurile marilor banci... Iar poe?ii blestema?i de azi cotizeaza pentru pensia suplimentara!"

In the first place, all the torpedo-planes were scrapped thirty years ago"

22. "Destiny was a machine built over time, each choice that you made in life adding another gear, another conveyor belt, another assemblyman. Where you ended up was the product that was spit out at the end—and there was no going back for a redo. You couldn?t take a peek at what you?d manufactured and decide, Oh, wait, I wanted to make sewing machines instead of machine guns; let me go back to the beginning and start again. One shot. That was all you got."
Author: J.R. Ward

We were both insufferably childish and high-spirited that afternoon and th spectacle we presented, two grown men, jostling each other on the wide sidewalk, and aiming the cherry-pips, as though they were spitballs, into each other's facesm must have been outrageous. And I realized that such childishness was fantastic at my age and the happiness out of which it sprang yet more so; for that moment I really loved Giovanni, who had never seemed more beautiful than he was that afternoon. And, watching his face, I realized that it meant much to me that I could make his face so bright. I saw that I might be willing to give a great deal not to lose that power. And I felt myself flow toward him, as a river rushes when the ice breaks up."
Author: James Baldwin

Author: Jandy Nelson
26. "In this postcolonial context, my contention is that interreligious engagement is enhanced by renewed attention to the particularity of religious traditions. From a European (Anglican) standpoint, a revised particularist theology of religions is proposed as an appropriate Christian theology for our time that respects the integrity of Christianity and of other religious traditions. This particularist approach concerns Christian terms of engagement with other religious traditions, as these may be understood in Christian theological terms. Having regard to questions raised in the opening paragraph above, centred in trinitarian thinking, as capable of hospitality to the liberative and interreligious concerns of post-colonial, Asian and feminist theologies; respectful interreligious engagement and the pursuit of gender justice amid increasing global diversity need not require repudiation of orthodox trinitarian thought and its liturgical expressions."
Author: Jenny Daggers

He was familiar with the feeling."Yes!" Deacon looked relieved. Then nervous again. "Only don't..."Mark wound an arm around him and kissed his cheek. "Spit it out. If I can clean my bowels out in front of you, you can tell me how you want to be fucked."Deacon hesitated. "Just don't be mean about it, okay? I want you to be dirty but not mean. Does that make sense?""Completely."

33. "Every Greek, man, woman, and child, has to two Greeks inside. We even have technical terms for them. They are a part of us, as inevitable as the fact that we all write poetry and the fact that every single one of us thinks that he knows everything that there is to know. We are all hospitable to strangers, we all are nostalgic for something, our mothers all treat their grown sons like babies, our sons all treat their mothers a sacred and beat their wives, we all hate solitude, we all try to find out from a stranger whether or not we are related, we all use every long word we know as often as we possibly can, we all go out for a walk in the evening so that we can look over each others' fences, we all think that we are equal to the best. Do you understand?"The captain was perplexed, "You didn't tell me about the two Greeks inside every Greek.""I didn't? Well, I must have wandered off the point."
Author: Louis De Bernières

Author: Marc Curtis
35. "The air is saturated with the stink of perfumes at war. There are video screens on which flawless complexions turn, preen, sigh through their parted lips, are caressed. On other screens are close-ups of skin pores, before and after, details of regimes for everything, your hands, your neck, your thighs. Your elbows, especially your elbows: aging begins at the elbows and metastasizes. This is religion. Voodoo and spells. I want to believe in it, the creams, the rejuvenating lotions, the transparent unguents in vials that slick on like roll-top glue… But this doesn't deter me, I'd use anything if it worked – slug juice, toad spit, eye of newt, anything at all to mummify myself, stop the drip drip of time, stay more or less the way I am." (Cat's Eye p113), Margaret Atwood"
Author: Margaret Atwood

I preach to the twelve apostles, the gods of guilt."Valenzula casually looked at me."Yeah, well, whatever. It's still pretty low and you should be ashamed of your ass. Almost as low as you racing out here ahead of me and hiding in there, telling her not to answer the door."I nodded. He had it all figured out. I signaled him off the hood of the car."Well, Val, Ms. Roberts is now my client and I am authorized to accept the subpoena from Fulgoni on her behalf."He slid off the car, dragging the wallet chain looped from his belt to his back pocket along the paint."Oh, geez, my fucking bad. I hope I didn't scratch it, Reverend."
Author: Michael Connelly
39. "Daisy looked up at him with the kind of expression that Jesus might have given someone who has just explained that he was probably allergic to bread and fishes so 'could he possibly do him a quick chicken salad?' There was pity in that expression along with almost infinite compassion."
Author: Neil Gaiman

Author: Thomas Merton
49. "We are here among you as seekers of refuge from our present-your future-a time of worldwide famine, exhausted fuel supplies, terminal poverty-the end of the capitalistic experiment. Once we came to understand the simpl...truth that earth's resources were limited, in fact soon to run out, the whole capitalistic illusion fell to pieces. Those of us who spoke this truth were denounced as heretics, as enemies of the prevailing economic faith. Like religious Dissenters of an earlier day..."
Author: Thomas Pynchon
50. "This, I finally realized, was how Mom was able to focus when I was not. It was how she was able to be present with me, present with the people at a benefit or the hospital. She felt whatever emotions she felt, but feeling was never a useful substitute for doing, and she never let the former get in the way of the latter. If anything, she used her emotions to motivate her and help her concentrate. The emphasis for her was always on doing what needed to be done. I had to learn this lesson while she was still there to teach me."
