Dobria Cesaric Quotes

"U tvojim očima kadikadTajanstven jedan pogled sine.Al tek što sine već i mine.Što skriva u svom čudnom sjajuTaj odraz bogate dubine?Da l bol, što neće da se smiri?Ne znam, gonetam uzaman.Il bljeskom tuge iz njeg viriNesretni, davni neki dan?Ili je san, duboko snivan,Nikad neostvaren al divan,što svagda će mi ostat skrit,A tvoga bića on je bit."

Julia David Levithan Quotes

"Think about it. People in the sixteenth century - not to mention in Jesuss time - didnt look like this: perfect skin, perfect hairdos, spotless clothes. These are people who went to the bathroom in the street, for Gods sake. Theres no way they looked like this. But thats how were going to remember them. Our alabaster past. When nothing else is left, art will become the truth of the time. Then people will get to the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and wonder what happened - how we all became so imperfect."

Ethnic conflict does not require great differences; small will do." - Author: Daniel Patrick Moynihan
