Favorite Superlatives Quotes

1. "I watched our friends' wary, intelligent faces droop at our tale.

Author: Ian McEwan
2. "Always either on a peak of happiness or drowning in black waters of despair they loved or they loathed, they lived in a world of superlatives"

Author: Tim O'Brien
4. "The art of advertisement, after the American manner, has introduced into all our life such a lavish use of superlatives, that no standard of value whatever is intact."

Today's Quote

And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? After all, you knew ahead of time that those bluecaps were out at night for no good purpose. And you could be sure ahead of time that you'd be cracking the skull of a cutthroat."
Author: Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
