Feeling and knowing weren't important, only understanding"

"In response to a plea in early 1941 from his colleague and friend, the writer Marietta Shaginyan, who was newly infatuated with the Piano Quintet and its creator, Mickhail Zoshchenko drafted for her a portrait of the Shostakovich he knew, a deeply complex individual:"It seemed to you that he is "frail, fragile, withdrawn, an infinitely direct, pure child." That is so. But if it were only so, then great art (as with him) would never be obtained. He is exactly what you say he is, plus something else — he is hard, acid, extremely intelligent, strong perhaps, despotic and not altogether good-natured (although cerebrally good-natured).That is the combination in which he must be seen. And then it may be possible to understand his art to some degree.In him, there are great contradictions. In him, one quality obliterates the other. It is conflict in the highest degree. It is almost a catastrophe."Quoted in Laurel Fay: Shostakovich, a Life."
Author: Dmitri Shostakovich

Author: E.R. Braithwaite

"Well it would involve the usual, faxing, filing, answering the phones, takingbookings, relieving my sexual needs, etcetera.""Yeah I thought as much."

"What's my second option?"

34. "Beverly had thought how strange and wonderful it would be if the earth were hurled far from its orbit, into the cold extremes of black space where the sun was a faint cool disc, not even a quarter-moon, and night was everlasting. Imagine the industry, she thought, as every tree, every piece of coal, and every scrap of wood were burned for heat and light. Though the sea would freeze, men would go out in the darkness and pierce it's glassy ice to find the stilled fish. But finally all the animals would be eaten and their hides and wool stitched and woven, all the coal would be burned, and not a tree would be left standing. Silence would rule the earth, for the wind would stop and the sea would be heavy glass. People would die quietly, buried in their furs and down."

36. "I do not say that all lawyers are bad, but I do maintain that the general tendency is bad: standing up in a court for whichever side has paid you, affecting warmth and conviction, and doing everything you can to win the case, whatever your private opinion may be, will soon dull any fine sense of honour. The mercenary soldier is not a valued creature, but at least he risks his life, whereas these men merely risk their next fee."
Author: Patrick O'Brian

Author: Pema Chödrön

40. "And afterward, after it was done, it was too much, and I felt like I was going to... I don't know.... explode, and it was just too much, I had to let it out you know? I had to-I interrupted her hysteria It's okay, I understand.That was a lie. I didn't get her cutting at all. She'd done it sporadically, ever since the accident and it scared me each time. She'd try to explain it to me, how she didn't want to die - she just needed to get it out somehow. She felt so much emotionally, she would say, that a physical outlet - physical pain - was the only way to make her internal pain go away. It was the only way she could control it."
Author: Richelle Mead

Several other whistles joined in a few moments later."It is possible," said Locke with a sheepish grin, "that I have been slightly too bold."
Author: Scott Lynch
43. "I think perhaps Pakistan can take the lead. Perhaps Turkey can as well, being part of Europe. But someone has to start talking about why the Muslim world has become a boiling pot and look beyond these cartoons to what the ideological reasons are for this divide."

45. "Pensé para mí mismo que en la palma de mi mano había una cinta que contenía todos estos recuerdos y sentimientos, grandes alegrías y tristezas. Justo ahí, en la palma de mi mano. Y pensé en cuanta gente ha amado esas canciones, cómo mucha gente ha superado un montón de malos tiempos gracias a estas canciones, cómo mucha gente ha disfrutado de buenos tiempos con estas canciones y cuánto significan estas canciones en realidad. Pienso que sería genial haber escrito alguna de estas canciones. Apuesto que si yo escribiera uno de esos temas, estaría muy orgulloso. Espero que las personas que escribieron esas canciones sean felices. Y espero que sientan que es suficiente. De verdad lo espero, porque ellos me han hecho feliz. Y soy sólo una persona."

46. "Bevor du da warst, Bella, war mein Leben eine mondlose Nacht.Sehr dunkel, aber mit Sternen - Punkte aus Licht und Weisheit.Und dann bist du ueber meinen Himmel gesaust wie ein Meteor.Ploetzlich stand alles in Flammen, da war Glanz und da war Schoenheit.Als du weg warst, als der Meteor hinter dem Horizont verschwunden war, wurde alles schwarz.Nichts hatte sich veraendert, aber meine Augen waren vom Licht geblendet.Ich konnte die Sterne nicht mehr sehen.Und es gab fuer nichts mehr einen Grund."

He was the worst thing that ever came down the pike, and when Tono Phul had him tie me to a pool table and work me over, I was sure my time had come."
