Favorite Twilight Years Quotes

1. "What 'Twilight' gave me was years to consider how I wanted to work otherwise."
Author: Ashley Greene
2. "It was on the dark side of twilight when we got to Bistritz, which is a very interesting old place. Being practically on the frontier--for the Borgo Pass leads from it into Bukovina--it has had a very stormy existence, and it certainly shows marks of it. Fifty years ago a series of great fires took place, which made terrible havoc on five separate occasions. At the very beginning of the seventeenth century it underwent a siege of three weeks and lost 13,000 people, the casualties of war proper being assisted by famine and disease."
Author: Bram Stoker
3. "The widower reviewed his past in a sunless light which was intensified by the greyness of the November twilight, whilst the bells subtly impregnated the surrounding atmosphere with the melody of sounds that faded like the ashes of dead years."
Author: Georges Rodenbach
4. "When they say Don't I know you? say no.When they invite you to the partyremember what parties are likebefore answering.Someone telling you in a loud voicethey once wrote a poem.Greasy sausage balls on a paper plate.Then reply.If they say we should get together.say why? It's not that you don't love them any more.You're trying to remember somethingtoo important to forget.Trees.The monastery bell at twilight.Tell them you have a new project.It will never be finished. When someone recognizes you in a grocery storenod briefly and become a cabbage.When someone you haven't seen in ten yearsappears at the door,don't start singing him all your new songs.You will never catch up.Walk around feeling like a leaf. Know you could tumble any second.Then decide what to do with your time."
Author: Naomi Shihab Nye
5. "Unwillingly Miranda wakes,Feels the sun with terror,One unwilling step she takes,Shuddering to the mirror.Miranda in Miranda's sightIs old and gray and dirty;Twenty-nine she was last night;This morning she is thirty.Shining like the morning star,Like the twilight shining,Haunted by a calendar,Miranda is a-pining.Silly girl, silver girl,Draw the mirror toward you;Time who makes the years to whirlAdorned as he adored you.Time is timelessness for you;Calendars for the human;What's a year, or thirty, toLoveliness made woman?Oh, Night will not see thirty again,Yet soft her wing, Miranda;Pick up your glass and tell me, then--How old is Spring, Miranda?"
Author: Ogden Nash
6. "Memories can bring comfort to the old and infirm, but memories can also be implacable foes, a malicious army of temporal ghosts forever pillaging the long-sought-after peace of our twilight years."

7. "I don't want your babies, Felix. I can assure you I'm not sitting up here like some tragic fallen woman every night dreaming of having your babies." She began tracing a figure of eight with her fingernail along his stomach. The movement looked idle but the nail pressed in hard. "You realize of course that if it were the other way round there would be a law, there would be an actual law: John versus Jen in the high court. And John would put it to Jen that she did wilfully fuck him for five years, before dumping him without warning in the twilight of his procreative window, and taking up with young Jack-the-lad, only twenty-four years old and with a cock as long as my arm. The court rules in favor of John. Every time. Jen must pay damages. Huge sums. Plus six months in jail. No—nine. Poetic justice."
Author: Zadie Smith

Today's Quote

Antropologlar, yasam biçimlerimizin, inandigimiz degerlerin, mümkün olan yegâne yasam biçimleri ve degerler olmadigini; baska yasam tarzlarinin, baska deger sistemlerinin de insan topluluklarinin mutluluga ulasmasina imkân vermis oldugunu ve hâlâ da vermeye devam ettigini kanitlamaya çalisirlar. Dolayisiyla antropoloji, böbürlenmelerimize gem vurmaya, baska yasam tarzlarina saygi duymaya, bizi sasirtan, soke eden ya da tiksindiren baska usulleri ögrenmek suretiyle kendimizi sorgulamaya çagirir bizleri....Antropologun kendine özgü kültürler arasindaki farklara gösterdigi dikkat ve duydugu saygi, yaklasiminin özünü olusturur."
Author: Claude Lévi Strauss
