He would say, for example, "My farm was the very apocalypse of fertility, but the renter has rested on his oars till it is good for nothing," or "Manifest the bounty to pass the salt shaker in my direction." Something of the Bible, something of an Irish inheritance, something of a liar's anxiety, made of his most ordinary remark a strange and wearisome oratory."

39. "We are the better because of a constitution that goes beyond the spirit of the men who wrote it. Most often, in contrast, Christianity is restrictive, overly concerned about the "original intent" of its authors. But the Constitution contains the germ of an idea that allows expansion, going beyond what its founders thought. That is humanism. Humanism affirms, "There is something good even holy in the human spirit." However we define humanism, whatever we say about it, the important thing is that it makes us better."

42. "Shesmiled with a newfound optimism. "The one thing I've learned most out ofall this is that it's not over until all the cards are played. She laid downher ace, thinking we can't beat it. But there are fifty-one other cards in thedeck and the game isn't over yet. We'll figure something out. Her little fitright now just shows that she's played her best hand. That was all she'scapable of doing to hurt you which is exactly why she did it. Don't let herruin your day, baby, and don't let her take from us what we have. We've gottenthis far together.

43. "In battle, in a war, a soldier sees only a tiny fragment of what is available to be seen. The soldier is not a photographic machine. He is not a camera. He registers, so to speak, only those few items that he is predisposed to register and not a single thing more. Do you understand this? So I am saying to you that after a battle each soldier will have different stories to tell, vastly different stories, and that when a was is ended it is as if there have been a million wars, or as many wars as there were soldiers."

I would break it off as one breaks off a bunch of grapes. I would say, "Take it. This is my life."
Author: Virginia Woolf
48. "Men love jargon. It is so palpable, tangible, visible, audible; it makes so obvious what one has learned; it satisfies the craving for results. It is impressive for the uninitiated. It makes one feel that one belongs. Jargon divides men into Us and Them….Obscurity is fascinating. One tries to puzzle out details, is stumpred, and becomes increasingly concerned with meaning – unless one feels put off and gives up altogether.Those who persevere and take the author seriously are led to ask about what he could possibly have meant, but rarely seem to wonder or discuss whether what he says is true."
Author: Walter Kaufmann
