Favorite Vann Quotes

1. "La persona onesta non sa che cosa sia la felicità, perché mentre dorme non si ripete, mentre dorme non sanguina, mentre dorme non lavora, mentre dorme non occupa la ragione, e la ragione è come una vecchia tana entro cui i poeti vanno a dormire."
Author: Alda Merini
2. "Girl Scouts is such an iconic organization that it's easy to overlook how daring an idea it was for founder Juliette Gordon Low to gather those first 18 girls in that troop in Savannah, Georgia. It was 1912, after all, and women wouldn't earn the right to vote for another eight years."
Author: Anna Maria Chavez
3. "A tutto ciò vanno aggiunte, in quanto contribuiscono alla felicitá dell'uomo di scienza, la bellezza delle più splendide conquiste, e la coscienza di un'utilità inestimabile per la razza umana. Una vita dedicata alla scienza è dunque una vita felice, e la sua felicità deriva dalle migliori possibilitá che si aprono dinnanzi agli abitanti di questo inquieto e impressionante pianeta"
Author: Bertrand Russell
4. "È necessario, nei confronti di ogni forma di attività umana, porsi di tanto in tanto la domanda: qual è il suo scopo, qual è il suo ideale? In che modo contribuisce alla bellezza dell'esistenza umana? In relazione alle attività che vi contribuiscono soltanto alla lontana, in quanto si occupano del meccanismo della vita, è bene ricordare che non soltanto il mero fatto di vivere va auspicato, ma l'arte di vivere nella contemplazione delle cose grandi. A maggior ragione, quando ci riferiamo alle occupazioni che non hanno altro fine al di fuori di se stesse, che vanno giustificate, se lo si può, in quanto aggiungono realmente qualcosa alle ricchezze permanenti del mondo, è necessario aver viva la coscienza dei loro obiettivi, una chiara prefigurazione del tempio nel quale deve inserirsi l'immaginazione creatrice"
Author: Bertrand Russell
5. "As the sunlight raced across the brilliant Savannah sky, the day unfolded like a beautiful yet painfully wrapped gift. Momma had left this world and set herself free, and in doing so, she had set me free too. As much as I missed her and wished I could hear her laughter one more time, I believed she was out there in the big bright somewhere, watching me, cheering for me. Loving me."
Author: Beth Hoffman
6. "A gyermekkor egyik buktatója, hogy vannak dolgok, amelyeket nem értünk, csak érzünk. Mire az agyunk képessé válik ezek megértésére, a szívünkön ejtett sebek már túl mélyek."
Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón
7. "She looked up and caught Jared's eye. He had watched the whole exchange, and he looked amused by Mina's actions. He pointed down at the apple that had come to rest against his shoe, the apple she had smacked out of Savannah's hand. He laughed as he reached down and picked up the apple. Mina frowned. Dusting it off against his shirt, Jared took a bite out of it and chewed slowly, taunting her."
Author: Chanda Hahn
8. "I have had my mother's wing of my genetic ancestry analyzed by the National Geographic tracing service and there it all is: the arrow moving northward from the African savannah, skirting the Mediterranean by way of the Levant, and passing through Eastern and Central Europe before crossing to the British Isles. And all of this knowable by an analysis of the cells on the inside of my mouth.I almost prefer the more rambling and indirect and journalistic investigation, which seems somehow less… deterministic."
Author: Christopher Hitchens
9. "My Mozart career began as a teenager in Los Angeles, singing arias from 'Le Nozze di Figaro' and 'Don Giovanni.'"
Author: Danielle De Niese
10. "Savannah is amazing with the town squares and the hanging moss and the French Colonial houses. It's brutally romantic."
Author: David Morrissey
11. "Rettento színben van, sárga és fakó, arcán már ott vannak azok az idegen vonások, amiket oly pontosan ismerünk, mert már százszor láttuk. Tulajdonképpen nem is vonások, inkább jegyek. Bore alatt már semmi élet nem lüktet; kiszorították a felszínre, belülrol a halál küszködik egyre kijjebb, a szemén uralkodik is már. Itt fekszik Kemmerich bajtársunk, aki még nemrégen lóhúst sütött, és a gránittölcsérben kuksolt velünk együtt – még o az, és már mégsem o, a képe elmosódott, határozatlanná vált, mint egy fényképlemez, amelyre két fölvételt csináltak. Még a hangja csengése is a hamura emlékeztet."
Author: Erich Maria Remarque
12. "Fortuna, ma ci sono fortune che vanno in braccio al primo che incontrano, fortune puttane che piantano subito e vanno col prossimo e invece ci sono fortune sagge che spiano una persona e la collaudano lentamente"
Author: Erri De Luca
13. "I turned my attention for a while to gamma ray astronomy and soon began the first in a continous series of experiments at the Savannah River site to study the properties of the neutrino."
Author: Frederick Reines
14. "Szerzetesek, vannak tanulatlan, közönséges emberek, akik nem gondolnak a nemes dolgokkal, nem hallottak a nemes tanról, járatlanok a nemes tanban; nem gondolnak az igaz emberekkel, nem hallottak az igaz emberek viselkedésérol, járatlanok az igaz ember viselkedésében. Az ilyenek nem ismerik fel a fontos tanokat, nem ismerik fel a fölösleges tanokat. Mivel nem ismerik fel a fontos tanokat, és nem ismerik fel a fölösleges tanokat, a fölösleges tanokkal foglalkoznak, és a fontos tanokkal nem foglalkoznak.Melyek azok a fölösleges tanok, szerzetesek, amelyekkel foglalkoznak? Ha egy tannal való foglalkozás következtében feltámad a még fel nem támadt örömvágy indulata, a már feltámadt örömvágy indulata pedig erosödik, feltámad a még fel nem támadt létezni vágyás indulata, a már feltámadt létezni vágyás indulata pedig erosödik, feltámad a még fel nem támadt balgaság indulata, a már feltámadt balgaság indulata pedig erosödik, az ilyen tan fölösleges, és ok ezzel foglalkoznak."
Author: Gautama Buddha
15. "Vannak titkok, amelyeket sohasem szabad kimondani, szégyenteljes dolgok, amelyeket jobb, ha az ember magával visz a sírba."
Author: George R.R. Martin
16. "«Perché lavorate? Non potreste limitarvi a vivere ed essere contenti? E se vi affaticate solo per potervi affaticare di più, quando troverete la felicità? Voi dite di lavorare per vivere, ma la vita non è fatta di bellezza e canzoni? E se non sopportate fra di voi un cantore, dove vanno i frutti di tanto lavoro? Lavorare senza divertirsi è come fare un viaggio interminabile senza meta. Non sarebbe meglio morire?»"
Author: H.P. Lovecraft
17. "No, Jem, io credo che la gente sia di un tipo solo: gente, e basta!"[...]"E' quel che pensavo anch'io quando avevo la tua età" disse infine. "Ma se gli uomini fossero di un tipo solo, come ti spieghi che non vanno mai d'accordo tra loro? Se son tutti uguali perché passano la vita a disprezzarsi a vicenda?"
Author: Harper Lee
18. "... Posai il mio cuscino sul terzo gradino dal basso, mi sedetti, presi il cappello e vi misi dentro la sigaretta: non proprio nel mezzo e non in un angolo, proprio così come se vi fosse stata gettata dall'alto e cominciai a cantare: "Il povero Papa Giovanni…". Nessuno badava a me, non sarebbe neppure stato un bene: dopo una, due, tre ore avrebbero pur cominciato ad accorgersi di me. Interruppi la mia strofa quando udii la voce al microfono che annunciava un treno da Amburgo… Allora andai avanti. Mi spaventai quando la prima moneta cadde nel cappello: era un soldo, colpì la sigaretta, la sospinse troppo da parte. La rimisi al posto giusto e ripresi a cantare."
Author: Heinrich Böll
19. "Aki azzal dicsekszik, hogy sohasem változtatja meg a véleményét, az úgy tesz, mintha arra vállalkozna, hogy mindig nyílegyenes vonalban fog haladni. Együgyu az ilyen, hisz a csalhatatlanságban. Márpedig nincsenek elvek, csak események vannak; nincsenek törvények, csak körülmények vannak."
Author: Honoré De Balzac
20. "Me acerqué para guardar el expediente en mi cajón y mis dedos rozaron un libro en rústica. La princesa prometida. Aquella noche en Savannah, cuando casi me besó, lo estaba leyendo, y cuando le dije que nos fuéramos, me contestó: «Como desees»."
Author: Ilona Andrews

22. "Sempre,sempre le strade vanno avanti,su rocce e sotto piante, a costeggiareantri che di ogni luce son mancanti,lungo ruscelli che non vanno al mare,sopra la neve che d'inverno cade,in mezzo ai fiori felici dell'estate,sopra la pietra e prati di rugiadesotto montagne di lune inondate.Sempre,sempre le strade vanno avantisotto le nubi e la volta stellata,ma i piedi incerti,nel cammino errantivolgono infine alla dimora amata.Gli occhi che han visto spade e fiamme ardentied in sale di pietra orrori ignoti,guardano infine i pascoli ridentie gli alberi ed i colli tanto noti"
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
23. "If thou hadst thy will what wouldst thou reserve?" said Manwe. "Of all thy realm what dost thou hold dearest?"All have their worth," said Yavanna, "and each contributes to the worth of the others. But the kelvar can flee or defend themselves, whereas the olvar that grow cannot. And among these I hold trees dear. Long in the growing, swift shall they be in the felling, and unless they pay toll with fruit upon their bough little mourned in their passing. So I see in my thought, would that the trees might speak on behalf of all things that have roots, and punish those that wrong them!"
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
24. "Todo tiene su valor —le respondió Yavanna— y cada cosa contribuye al valor de las otras."
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
25. "Neither of them noticed Jane for a moment, which was for the best, as Jane looked like parts of her had been ripped up and flung into the wind.While Hunter smiled at Savannah, little pieces of Jane fluttered down to the parking lot. ...She waded through the litter of her old self and climbed into the battered Taurus."
Author: Janette Rallison
26. "Nem áhítozhatunk arra, hogy mi legyünk az elsok vagy a legjobbak, el kell fogadnunk azt, ami van: mi vagyunk a maradék, a felesleg, a túlélok, akik még kéznél vannak, a kiárusítás utolsó darabjai; és ebbol a nem túl hízelgo helyzetbol fakadnak a legnagyobb szerelmek és a legszebb családok, ebbol származik mindenki, a véletlenszeruségbol és a konformizmusból, az eldobott kártyalapokból, a félelmekbol és a távoli kudarcokból, és néha még így is mindent megtennénk, hogy amellett maradjunk, akit a padlásról szedtünk össze vagy egy árverésen csaptunk le rá, kártyán nyertük vagy o húzott ki bennünket a kukából. Hihetetlen, hogyan lehetünk képesek meggyozni magunkat végzetes szerelmeinkrol, és sokan a sors kezét látják abban, ami nem más, mint egy nyárvégi, falusi tombola…"
Author: Javier Marías
27. "Last year in the U.S. alone more than nine hundred thousand people were reported missing and not found...That's out of three hundred million, total population. That breaks down to about one person in three hundred and twenty-five vanishing. Every year....Maybe it's a coincidence, but it's almost the same loss ratio experienced by herd animals on the African savannah to large predators."
Author: Jim Butcher
28. "These are all direct quotes, except every time they use a curse word, I'm going to use the name of a famous American poet:'You Walt Whitman-ing, Edna St. Vincent Millay! Go Emily Dickinson your mom!''Thanks for the advice, you pathetic piece of E.E. Cummings, but I think I'm gonna pass.''You Robert Frost-ing Nikki Giovanni! Get a life, nerd. You're a virgin.''Hey bro, you need to go outside and get some fresh air into you. Or a girlfriend.'I need to get a girlfriend into me? I think that shows a fundamental lack of comprehension about how babies are made."
Author: John Green
29. "He took her chin in his hand and turned her to face him. "I'm a Dom, Savannah. I try to be in control of myself at all times, sometimes to the extreme. That control allows me to be in a place where I am responsible enough to accept the submission of someone who wants me to control her. The only control I will ever have over you is what you grant me."
Author: Kallypso Masters
30. "He looked at me. " I do know how to deal with demons, Savannah." "I know. Sorry.""So I get a hug?""No, but I won't smack you, and we'll call it even."
Author: Kelley Armstrong
31. "... hadde ikke fulgt med i stedets og menneskenes opsving, nu var det ingen som ikke åt makaroni med han vann og det smakte godter av det og det smakte lækkert ister av det, og de måtte bare såsandt ha hat en duvende makaroniskog her også likesom i utlandet!"
Author: Knut Hamsun
32. "Io credo che tutto accada per una ragione.Le persone cambiano perché tu possa imparare a lasciarle andare via. Le cose vanno male perché tu le possa apprezzare quando invece vanno bene, credi alle bugie perché poi imparerai a non fidarti dinessuno tranne che di te stesso, e qualche volta le cose buone vanno in pezzi perché cose migliori possano accadere."
Author: Marilyn Monroe
33. "Spoilers followI started reading the third act of Hamlet, and I got about two pages in when I realized there's no point.I am never going back to school.I am never going to the university.I am never going to watch wolves stalk through the northern forests or elephants graze on the savanna. I am never going to have sex or get married or raise a family. I'm never going to have a first apartment, a first house, a first car. I'm never"
Author: Megan Crewe
34. "Frequently I go to conferences and listen to speakers decry the absent father as somehow a new phenomenon. Though their recriminations against absent or emotionally distant fathers are generally meant to help society, at the same time they are built on a lie that evolution disproves generation after generation. Fathers have often gone to war, or the long hunt on the savannah, or to work in another village or city. But only in the last decade or so have manhood and fathering been trashed completely."
Author: Michael Gurian
35. "But there is no easy way to mourn a child.p 269Savannah mourning her daughter Esther"
Author: Nancy E. Turner
36. "I told Mama and Savannah about Ruben's proposal. That got us to talking about marriage and we laughed and cried some, and missed Papa, and it felt good to belong to each other. I don't feel as lonely today as I have in months. At least I know there are other women around me."
Author: Nancy E. Turner
37. "Well, there is rough old Albert, as ornery as any big brother a girl could have, putting his arm around Savannah and cooing to her like a repenting hound dog, and promising her she is not common nor shameful. I watched all this and thought you just never know sometimes what's in a man's heart. When you think he is all tough nails and boards he can be different on the inside. It makes me wonder about other men I know, too."
Author: Nancy E. Turner
38. "I think my Mama and Savannah must be special people in the Lord's eyes, as they have gone about doing generous and loving things without even a second thought. For me, it seems like the only thing that comes natural is aggravation and hard word"
Author: Nancy E. Turner
39. "Thou, -- dost thou pray?" cried Giovanni, still with the same fiendish scorn. "Thy very prayers, as they come from thy lips, taint the atmosphere with death. Yes, yes; let us pray! Let us to church and dip our fingers in the holy water at the portal! They that come after us will perish as by a pestilence! Let us sign crosses in the air! It will be scattering curses abroad in the likeness of holy symbols!"
Author: Nathaniel Hawthorne
40. "Yes, poisonous thing!" repeated Giovanni, beside himself with passion. "Thou hast done it! Thou has blasted me! Thou hast filled my veins with poison! Thou hast made me as hateful, as ugly, as loathsome and deadly a creature as thyself – a world's wonder of hideous monstrosity! Now, if our breath be happily as fatal to ourselves as to all others, let us join our lips in one kiss of unutterable hatred, and so die!"
Author: Nathaniel Hawthorne
41. "I love you, Savannah, and I always will," I breathed. "You're the best thing that's ever happened to me. You were my best friend and my lover, and I dont regret a single moment of it. You made me feel alive again, and most of all, you gave me my father. I'll never forget you for that. You're always going to be the very best part of me. I'm sorry it has to be this way, but I have to leave, and you have to see your husband." As I spoke, I could feel her shaking with sobs, and I continued to hold her for a long time afterward. When we finally seperated, I knew that it would be the last time I ever held her. I backed away, my eyes holding Savannah's. "I love you, too, John," she said. "Good-bye." I raised a hand."
Author: Nicholas Sparks
42. "I laughed as I thought of what Savannah would have told me had she been here. "You're capable of anything Jer. You're much stronger than you give yourself credit for. Keep pushing; it'll all be okay in the end." Then I'd turn and smile at her, nudging her in her side as she looked up towards the sky. Whenever she thought of dad, she shifted her attention towards the sky, as if she were looking for him in the clouds. It was the same thing I found myself doing now. Except I wasn't looking for dad, I was searching for her. But there was nothing. The night sky, usually lit up by the moon and the surrounding stars, was empty."
Author: Nicole Sobon
43. "If there were no goodness in people, mankind would still be confined to loping across a Savannah somewhere on Earth, watching the elephants rule, or some other more compassionate species."
Author: Orson Scott Card
44. "I am proud to be a Southerner. I think Southern hospitality is very... I don't think it's just a term. I think it really exists. You can come to Savannah, and the people are so sweet and so nice."
Author: Paula Deen
45. "So they all went home afterwards. My sisters and I sat on the veranda and cried until a storm drove us inside. We agreed to meet in the barn loft for crying once a week but after a while we forgot. Once we did but nobody could work up a cry and we started playing wolves and chickens and Little Mary had to be the chicken and Savannah shoved her out of the loft and broke her collarbone. The hearts of children are hard naturally because of their short memories. Everything they play with becomes true and unquestionable such as an acorn cap for a Holy Grail, such is the power of the untrained mind, and all our training of it is both of advantage and not."
Author: Paulette Jiles
46. "En natt i lengst forsvundne tider våknet mennesket og så seg selv... da dyrene kom til sine vannhull, hvor han ventet dem av gammel vane, da kjente han ikke lenger tigerspranget i sitt blod, men en stor salme om lidelsens broderskap mellom alt som lever."
Author: Peter Wessel Zapffe
47. "E' proprio perché gli abitanti delle città vanno in giro con un pugnale al fianco che non scoppiano mai risse o litigi. Se ottemperassero alla legge, che concede solo ai samurai di uscire armati, accaderebbe che gli uomini piu' deboli verrebbero sempre sopraffatti dalla forza di quelli più imponenti. Invece, grazie al timore che un pugnale incute, anch'essi possono tranquillamente inoltrasi da soli nelle più oscure tenebre della notte."
Author: Saikaku Ihara
48. "I was beautiful; after all, my skin was as rich and dark as wet, brown mud, a complexion that any and every pale white girl would pray for - that is, if she believed in God. My butt sat high in the air and my hips obviously gave birth to Creation. Titties like mangoes, firm, sweet, and ready. My thighs and legs were big and powerful, kicking Vanna White and Cindy Crawford to the curb."
Author: Sister Souljah
49. "[…] az emberek nem viselkednek valami példamutatóan, amikor egyedül vannak. Általában félreteszik az udvariasság, a megfelelo viselkedés és a jólneveltség maszkját. És hogy mi rejtozik a maszk alatt? Talán egy ragyás szörnyeteg? Valami undorítóság, amelynek láttán mindenki sikítva rohanna el? Néha igen, de általában semmi szörnyu. Mások csak nevetnének, ha meglátnának minket a maszkjaink nélkül – nevetnének, fintorognának, esetleg mindkettot egyszerre."
Author: Stephen King
50. "In rereading one of the best essays I know on Dante's Paradiso, Giovanni Getto's "Aspetti della poesia di Dante" (Aspects of Dante's Poetry, 1947), one can see that there is not one single image of Paradise that does not stem from a tradition that was part of the medieval reader's heritage, I won't say of ideas, but of daily fantasies and feelings. It is from the biblical tradition and the church fathers that these radiances come from, these vortices of flame, these lamps, these suns, these brilliances and brightnesses emerging "like a horizon clearing" (Par. 14.69)...For medieval man, reading about this light and luminosity was equivalent to when we dream about the sinuous gracefulness of a movie star, the elegant lines of a car...It is this appeal to a poetry of understanding that can make the Paradiso fascinating even for the modern reader who has lost the reference points familiar to his medieval counterpart."
