Jenni Fagan Quotes

"Clowns are vicious--theyre all nefarious grins--and if you hung out with a bunch of clowns in a bar, pretty soon it would turn into a horror movie. Nefarious means evil. Its nothing to do with Rastas."

Bryant Simon Quotes

"Pretty quickly, I stopped seeing the company as an engine of community. Instead, I saw it as a mythmaker offering only an illusion of belonging and meeting its customers desire for connections in form, maybe, but surely not in substance. Once I came to this conclusion, I started to dig deeper into the companys other promises--great working conditions, musical discovery, fair treatment of farmer, and concern for the environment. Every time I went excavating, the stories turned out to be more complex, more heavily edited, and more ambiguous than I had first thought. Each time, it became clear that Starbucks fulfilled its many promises only in the thinnest, most transitory of ways and that peoples desires went largely unfulfilled."

Dulce Maria Quotes

Sylvia Sidney Quotes

"Nooooooo... favorite film, thats like asking if you have a favorite kid!"

Chancery Stone Quotes

"There is a deeper, more profound reason for this craving for acceptance and glory. Put simply, its because all writers are fat and/or ugly. And generally socially inept. Me being the notable exception, of course. Writers want to be special, because theyre so not. Theyre losers, overgrown kids whove never escaped from being misfits and who have run away into their own imaginations in an attempt to find self-esteem. Why do you think they all star in their own books? Self included."

Rebecca West Quotes

"Just how difficult it is to write biography can be reckoned by anybody who sits down and considers just how many people know the real truth about his or her love affairs."

Quotes About Hollow Man

"Outside in the barnlot he looked up and the pale moon was directly over him and all-encompassing. It appeared to be lowering itself onto the earth and he could make out mountains and ranges of hills and hollows and dark shadowed areas of mystery he judged to be timber and he wondered what manner of beast thrived there and what their lives were like and the need to be there twisted in his heart like an old pain that will not dissipate." - Author: William Gay

Quotes About Mummy

"...the Beatles were hard men too. Brian Epstein cleaned them up for mass consumption, but they were anything but sissies. They were from Liverpool, which is like Hamburg or Norfolk, Virginia--a hard, sea-farin town, all these dockers and sailors around all the time who would beat the piss out of you if you so much as winked at them. Ringos from the Dingle, which is like the f***ing Bronx. The Rolling Stones were the mummys boys--they were all college students from the outskirts of London. They went to starve in London, but it was by choice, to give themselves some sort of aura of disrespectability. I did like the Stones, but they were never anywhere near the Beatles--not for humour, not for originality, not for songs, not for presentation. All they had was Mick Jagger dancing about. Fair enough, the Stones made great records, but they were always s**t on stage, whereas the Beatles were the gear." - Author: Lemmy Kilmister

Quotes About Rationale

"The rationale for tenure is still valid. But the system has turned the academy into one of the most conservative and costly institutions in the country. Yes, conservative: Economists joke that their discipline advances one funeral at a time, but many fields must wait for wholesale generational turnover before new approaches take hold." - Author: Francis Fukuyama
