Favorite Wart Quotes

1. "The only picture of Tarrou he would always have would be the picture of a man who firmly gripped the steering-wheel of his car when driving, or else the picture of that stalwart body, now lying motionless. Knowing meant that: a living warmth, and a picture of death."
Author: Albert Camus
2. "...while hiding in plain sight in Belgrade, undercover as a New Age mountebank, Karadžic frequented a bar called Mad House - Luda kuca. Mad House offered weekly gusle-accompanied performances of Serbian epic poetry; wartime pictures of him and General Ratko Mladic, the Bosnian Serbs' military leader (now on trial in The Hague), proudly hung on the walls. A local newspaper claimed that, on at least one occasion, Karadžic performed an epic poem in which he himself featured as the main hero, undertaking feats of extermination. Consider the horrible postmodernism of the situation: an undercover war criminal narrating his own crimes in decasyllabic verse, erasing his personality so that he could assert it more forcefully and heroically."
Author: Aleksandar Hemon
3. "Es ist nicht so, dass ich unbedingt glücklich sein wollte, das nicht gerade. Ich wollte...mich retten, ja: mich retten. Aber ich habe erst spät begriffen, auf welche Seite man sich schlagen muss: auf die Seite der Sehnsüchte. Man erwartet eigentlich, dass es andere Dinge sind, durch die Menschen gerettet werden können: Pflichterfüllung, Ehrlichkeit, gut sein, gerecht sein. Nein. Es sind die Sehnsüchte, die einen erretten. Sie sind das einzig Wahre. Bist du auf ihrer Seite, wirst du dich retten. Aber als ich das begriff, war es schon zu spät. Wenn du dem Leben Zeit lässt, nimmt es eine eigenartige, unvermeidliche Wendung; und du stellst fest, dass du dich an dem Punkt nicht nach etwas sehnen kannst, ohne dir selbst weh zu tun. An dem Punkt scheitert alles, du kannst dem nicht entgehen, je mehr du um dich schlägst, desto mehr verfängst du dich im dem Netz, je heftiger du aufbegehrst, desto mehr verletzt du dich. Es gibt kein Entrinnen."
Author: Alessandro Baricco
4. "The only people out at this hour were ones who couldn't sleep,those haunted by one thing or another:love thwarted, love lost, love thrown away. They were the sort of people who didn't want to be noticed, who wanted to slip through shadows, be alone with their despair."
Author: Alice Hoffman
5. "Schreiben heißt, mit Erwartungen zu brechen."
Author: Alina Bronsky
6. "I've been doing yoga since 1980 or '81, and I've kind of developed my own routine. It's challenging and thorough, but I'm not holy about it. Sometimes I'll watch a tape of Jon Stewart's show while exercising."
Author: April Gornik
7. "Wil Wheaton, Patrick Stewart and Jonathan Frakes were all the early formidable crushes of my girlhood."
Author: Autumn Reeser
8. "The universe, it appeared, had never been kind to Captain Bortrek, conspiring against him in a fashion that Threepio privately considered unlikely given the man's relative unimportance. Knowing what he did about the Alderaan social structure, shipping regulations, the psychology of law enforcement agents, and the statistical behavior patterns of human females, Threepio was much inclined to doubt that so many hundreds of people would spend that much time thinking up ways to thwart and injure a small-time free-trader who was, by his own assertion, only trying to make a living."
Author: Barbara Hambly
9. "I watch Stewart. He has the most interesting face. It is beautiful, young, almost childlike, and yet with a power and authority in his features. In another time he would have been a young warrior, a Lost Prince exiled from his kingdom. But he's from this time, this place, so he's just some "at risk" kid who can't find a place for himself in the straight world."
Author: Blake Nelson
10. "For Schwartz this formed the paradox at the heart of baseball, or football, or any other sport. You loved it because you considered it an art: an apparently pointless affair, undertaken by people with special aptitude, which sidestepped attempts to paraphrase its value yet somehow seemed to communicate something true or even crucial about The Human Condition. The Human Condition being, basically, that we're alive and have access to beauty, can even erratically create it, but will someday be dead and will not.Baseball was an art, but to excel at it you had to become a machine. It didn't matter how beautifully you performed SOMETIMES, what you did on your best day, how many spectacular plays you made. You weren't a painter or a writer--you didn't work in private and discard your mistakes, and it wasn't just your masterpieces that counted."
Author: Chad Harbach
11. "Only here, long after midnight, while everyone else was sleeping, when nothing was expected of him, could Schwartz convince himself that he was working hard enough. These hours felt stolen, added to his life. The voice fell quiet."
Author: Chad Harbach
12. "Scrubbley because she'd missed the train to Hogwarts."
Author: Chris D'Lacey
13. "If a dream can tell the future it can also thwart that future. For God will not permit that we shall know what is to come. He is bound to no one that the world unfold just so upon its course and those who by some sorcery or by some dream might come to pierce the veil that lies so darkly over all that is before them may serve by just that vision to cause that God should wrench the world from its heading and set it upon another course altogether and then where stands the sorcerer? Where the dreamer and his dream?"
Author: Cormac McCarthy
14. "Martha Stewart contributes more to our civility than the Baptist church."
Author: Dave Hickey
15. "Jon Stewart is exactly the same guy he's always been, only with money. He knows that the moment he really believes he's important, the funny goes away and he becomes Bill O'Reilly, except shorter and Jewish."
Author: Denis Leary
16. "I am not quite Martha Stewart, but I do like cooking and gardening."
Author: Dennis Basso
17. "De combinatie geel en zwart, godbetert, smaaklozer kan je 't niet bedenken. [...] Bidden wij dus voor alle ouders van een zoontje dat supporteert voor NAC Breda of SK Lierse en zulks kenbaar wil maken via het behangpapier op zijn kamer, zijn kaften, zijn jassen en zijn sjaals. Kleurterreur die z'n sporen moet nalaten op het brein en waar de schoolresultaten van het ventje uiteindelijk bijzonder onder gaan lijden."
Author: Dimitri Verhulst
18. "To be "in charge" is certainly not only to carry out the proper measures yourself but to see that every one else does so too; to see that no one either willfully or ignorantly thwarts or prevents such measures. It is neither to do everything yourself nor to appoint a number of people to each duty, but to ensure that each does that duty to which he is appointed."
Author: Florence Nightingale
19. "The challenge of good men is not to thwart change, but to mold it as it comes, so that it may benefit rather than destroy."
Author: G. Norman Lippert
20. "England is not the jewelled isle of Shakespeare's much-quoted message, nor is it the inferno depicted by Dr Goebbels. More than either it resembles a family, a rather stuffy Victorian family, with not many black sheep in it but with all its cupboards bursting with skeletons. It has rich relations who have to be kow-towed to and poor relations who are horribly sat upon, and there is a deep conspiracy of silence about the source of the family income. It is a family in which the young are generally thwarted and most of the power is in the hands of irresponsible uncles and bedridden aunts. Still, it is a family. It has its private language and its common memories, and at the approach of an enemy it closes its ranks. A family with the wrong members in control - that, perhaps is as near as one can come to describing England in a phrase."
Author: George Orwell
21. "Und wenn sich dann viele verschiedene Wege vor dir auftun werden, und du nicht weisst, welchen du einschlagen sollst, dann überlasse es nicht dem Zufall, sondern setz dich und warte. Warte, warte noch. Lausche still und schweigend auf dein Herz. Wenn es dann zu dir spricht, steh auf und geh, wohin es dich trägt. (Susanna Tamaro)"
Author: Guillaume Musso
22. "Do you fear the force of the wind,The slash of the rain?Go face them and fight them,Be savage again.Go hungry and cold like the wolf,Go wade like the crane:The palms of your hands will thicken,The skin of your cheek will tan,You'll grow ragged and weary and swarthy,But you'll walk like a man!"
Author: Hamlin Garland
23. "Out of this sorrowful experience I understand more fully all human strivings, thwarted ambitions, and the infinite capacity of hope."
Author: Helen Keller
24. "Today...major actors and actresses develop their own projects or, at the very least, cherry-pick their roles carefully to suit not only their tastes but also whatever image they have cultivated to present to their public. Most major stars have their own production companies through which such projects are developed and even financed. While the biggest male stars of that time did in fact have their own production companies--Jimmy Stewart, Kirk Douglas, John Wayne, and Burt Lancaster, to name a few--and thus exerted creative and financial control over their careers, that was not the case with female stars. But Marilyn Monroe was about to change that."
Author: J. Randy Taraborrelli
25. "You will also find that help will always be given at Hogwarts to those who ask for it."
Author: J.K. Rowling
26. "Information wants to be free.' So goes the saying. Stewart Brand, the founder of the Whole Earth Catalog, seems to have said it first.I say that information doesn't deserve to be free.Cybernetic totalists love to think of the stuff as if it were alive and had its own ideas and ambitions. But what if information is inanimate? What if it's even less than inanimate, a mere artifact of human thought? What if only humans are real, and information is not?...Information is alienated experience."
Author: Jaron Lanier
27. "I am wired by nature to love the same toys that the world loves. I start to fit in. I start to love what others love. I start to call earth "home." Before you know it, I am calling luxeries "needs" and using my money just the way unbelievers do. I begin to forget the war. I don't think much about people perishing. Missions and unreached people drop out of my mind. I stop dreaming about the triumphs of grace. I sink into a secular mind-set that looks first to what man can do, not what God can do. It is a terrible sickness. And I thank God for those who have forced me again and again toward a wartime mind-set."
Author: John Piper
28. "The man who gets drunk in peacetime is a coward. The man who gets drunk in wartime goes on being a coward."
Author: Jose Bergamin
29. "Hmmm," he said, "Lauren Elizabeth Danner.Elizabeth is a beautiful name and so is Lauren. They suit you."Unable to endure the sweet torment of having him flirt with her, Lauren said repressively, "I was named after two maiden aunts.One of them had a squint and the other had warts."Nick ignored that and continued aloud. "Color of eyes,blue." He regarded her over the top of the file, his gray eyes intimate and teasing. "They are definitely blue.A man could lose himself in those eyes of yours-they're gorgeous.""My right eye used to wobble unless I wore my glasses," Lauren informed him blithely. "They had to operate on it.""A little girl with wobbly blue eyes and glasses on her nose," he reflected with a slow grin. "I'll bet you were cute.""I looked studious,not cute."
Author: Judith McNaught
30. "It is not easy for men to rise whose qualities are thwarted by poverty."
Author: Juvenal
31. "Der Augenblick ist die einzige Realität, die Realität überhaupt im seelischen Leben. Der gelebte Augenblick ist das Letzte, Blutwarme, Unmittelbare, Lebendige, das leibhaftig Gegenwärtige, die Totalität des Realen, das allein Konkrete. Statt von der Gegenwart sich in Vergangenheit und Zukunft zu verlieren, findet der Mensch Existenz und Absolutes zuletzt nur im Augenblick. Vergangenheit und Zukunft sind dunkle, ungewisse Abgründe, sind die endlose Zeit, während der Augenblick die Aufhebung der Zeit, die Gegenwart des Ewigen sein kann."
Author: Karl Jaspers
32. "Fire supposed he needed to be there in order to give rousing speeches and lead the charge into the fray, or whatever is was commanders did in wartime. She resented his competence at something so tragic and senseless. She wished he, or somebody, would throw down his sword and say, 'Enough! This is a silly way to decide who's in charge!' And it seemed to her, as the beds in the healing room filled and emptied and filled, that these battles didn't leave much to be in charge of. The kingdom was already broken, and this war was tearing the broken pieces smaller."
Author: Kristin Cashore
33. "Warum es den Menschen so schwer fällt, glücklich zu sein? Weil sie die Vergangenheit besser sehen als sie war, die Gegenwart schlechter als sie ist und die Zukunft rosiger als sie sein wird."
Author: Marcel Pagnol
34. "Fear that I was very different from everyone else. Fear that deep down inside I was a shallow fraud, that after the revolution or after Jesus came down to straighten everything out, everyone from hippies to hard-hats would unfold and blossom into the beautiful people they were while I would remain a gnarled little wart in the corner, oozing bile and giving off putrid smells."
Author: Mark Vonnegut
35. "There is yet another class that, having found that their own religion not only prevents free thinking but that some of its philosophies are also against some basic social, economic and scientific concepts of life as required by the progressive society, comes to the illogical conclusion that all religions similarly thwart the growth of progressive societies... Such people fall easy prey to materialism and denounce all religions without having any definite idea of any religion at all."
Author: Mohammed Ali Muhiyaddin
36. "Wandaden zoals mijn ontvoering bieden de zwart-witte basis voor de categorieën 'goed' en 'kwaad' waaraan de samenleving behoefte heeft. De dader moet wel een beest zijn, want als we dat geloven, zijn we zelf goed. Een misdrijf moet worden opgetuigd met sadomasochistische fantasieën en wilde orgieën, net zolang totdat het zo ver van ons af staat dat er geen enkel verband met ons eigen leven is.En het slachtoffer moet gebroken zijn en dat ook blijven, anders is het kwaad niet meer op die manier op afstand te houden. Een slachtoffer dat weigert zich in die rol te schikken wordt een symbool van de tegenstellingen van de maatschappij. Die willen we niet zien, want dan zouden we gedwongen zijn over onszelf na te denken."
Author: Natascha Kampusch

Author: Paul Hoffman

That will be regarded as an unsanitary habit," said Merlyn, "though I cannot see it myself. After all, God made the creature's nose just as well as he made your tongue."
Author: T.H. White
49. "If I were to be made a knight," said the Wart, staring dreamily into the fire, "I should insist on doing my vigil by myself, as Hob does with his hawks, and I should pray to God to let me encounter all the evil in the world in my own person, so that if I conquered there would be none left, and, if I were defeated, I would be the one to suffer for it."
Author: T.H. White
50. "The man was of fine figure, swarthy, and stern in aspect; and he showed in profile a facial angle so slightly inclined as to be almost perpendicular. He wore a short jacket of brown corduroy, newer than the remainder of his suit, which was a fustian waistcoat with white horn buttons, breeches of the same, tanned leggings, and a straw hat overlaid with black glazed canvas. At his back he carried by a looped strap a rush basket, from which protruded at one end the crutch of a hay-knife, a wimble for hay-bonds being also visible in the aperture. His measured, springless walk was the walk of the skilled countryman as distinct from the desultory shamble of the general labourer; while in the turn and plant of each foot there was, further, a dogged and cynical indifference personal to himself, showing its presence even in the regularly interchanging fustian folds, now in the left leg, now in the right, as he paced along."
Author: Thomas Hardy
