Quotes About Staying Strong Through Depression

"Welcome to my gates, Ista dy Chalion. I am the Mother of Jokona." Her hand lifted from the girls head, flicked out, fingers spreading.Within Ista, the god unfolded.Her second sight burst anew upon Istas mind like a dazzling lightning stroke, brilliant beyond hope, revealing an eerie landscape. She saw it all, at one glance: the dozen demons, the swirling, crackling lines of power, the agonized souls, Joens dark, dense, writhing passenger. The thirteenth demon, spinning wildly through the air toward her, trailing its evil umbilicus.Ista opened her jaws in a fierce grin, and took it in a gulp."Welcome to mine, Joen of Jokona," said Ista. "I am the Mouth of Hell." - Author: Lois McMaster Bujold

Quotes About Durant

"Como lector y espectador que soy, he aprendido a desconfiar del mientras. Aunque lea un libro en vilo o esté encantado durante la visión de una película, ya no juzgo hasta el día siguiente a haberlos terminado. Las más de las veces, lo confieso -es difícil sustraerse a la educación o a la programación de la sociedad en que uno vive-, al día siguiente no dedico ni una evocación ni un pensamiento a aquello que disfruté en el mientras, y descubro que se me ha disipado hasta su atmósfera. De tarde en tarde, en cambio, me doy cuenta de que la música, la pintura, la novela o la película me llaman aún y me rondan, que mi cabeza no es capaz de zafarse de ese mundo en el que estuve inmerso con la involuntaria previsión de salir de él al instante, en cuanto cerrase el volumen o abandonara el museo o el cine." - Author: Javier Marías

Quotes About The Hound Of The Baskervilles

"Books help to form us. If you cut me open, you will find volume after volume, page after page, the contents of every one I have ever read, somehow transmuted and transformed into me. Alice in Wonderland. the Magic Faraway Tree. The Hound of the Baskervilles. The Book of Job. Bleak House. Wuthering Heights. The Complete Poems of W H Auden. The Tale of Mr Tod. Howards End. What a strange person I must be. But if the books I have read have helped to form me, then probably nobody else who ever lived has read exactly the same books, all the same books and only the same books as me. So just as my genes and the soul within me make me uniquely me, so I am the unique sum of the books I have read. I am my literary DNA." - Author: Susan Hill

Quotes About Insecurities In Life

Quotes About Access

"For me, this is exactly whats so pernicious about the morality of debt: the way that financial imperatives constantly try to reduce us all, despite ourselves, to the equivalent of pillagers, eyeing the world simply for what can be turned into money -- and then tell us that its only those who are willing to see the world as pillagers who deserve access to the resources required to pursue anything in life other than money." - Author: David Graeber
