"We dissect nature along lines laid down by our native language."

Mark A Roeder Quotes

"I had a sneaking suspicion that time was not constant, but I guess I could never prove it. I suppose it didnt really matter. I even had a theory that time didnt go in straight line at all. I knew I was no Albert Einstein, but I had the sneaking suspicion that everything had happened, was happening, or would happen was really happening all the time. There was no past, present, and future. Everything was going on all at once and forever. If that was true, then each moment was eternity."

Judy Blume Quotes

"In this age of censorship, I mourn the loss of books that will never be written, I mourn the voices that will be silenced-writers voices, teachers voices, students voices-and all because of fear."

Kelley York Quotes

"To be fair, she called this morning. I stared at the phone. Circled it on my bed. And, eventually, it stopped ringing. If it had been important, she wouldve called back, right? That was the line of thought that ran through my head until halfway through the day, when I started to feel bad about it."

Quotes About Concealment

"The verb to darn is explained in my pocket dictionary as follows: To mend by imitating the texture of the stuff, with thread and needle. But this definition does not correspond to the work accomplished by good Chinese housewives. When they mend a sock, they do not try to imitate the texture of the stuff. Their art makes no attempt at concealment: it even takes a certain pride in revealing itself." - Author: Daniele Varè

Quotes About Far Distance Friendship

"By the time dusk fell, he was back in his room. The last of the daylight lay like fine ashes on the roof-tops. He did not light his lamp, but sat by the fireplace in the dark, seeking in the far distance of his past some vague memory of a love-affair, some recollection of a friendship, with which to soften the hard tyranny of isolation." - Author: François Mauriac

Quotes About Over Protectiveness

"Her mind moved around and around the subject, moving with a kind of fuzzy firmness. With no coherent thought process, she arrived at a conviction - a habit with the basically insecure; an insecurity whose seeds are invariably planted earlier, in under or over-protectiveness, in a distrust in parental authority which becomes all authority. It can later, with maturity - a flexible concept - be laughed away, dispelled by determined clear thinking. Or it can be encouraged by self-abusive resentment and brooding self-pity. It can grow ever greater until the original authority becomes intolerable, and a change becomes imperative. Not to a radical one in thinking; that would be too troublesome, too painful. The change is simply to authority in another guise which, in time, and under any great stress, must be distrusted and resented even more than the first." - Author: Jim Thompson

Quotes About Remaining Calm

"Shes fulfilled her obligation, assuaged her conscience by finding me in the hallway and giving me the chance to freak out, and Ive played my role too, by remaining calm, pretending to be okay, and therefore giving her permission to cross me off her things-to-do list. Now she can move on, and I can too.Once you understand how adults are controlled by the system, manipulating them is elementary." - Author: Matthew Quick

Quotes About Belongings

"To what temptations, to what extremities does lucidity lead! Shall we desert it now to take refuge in unconsciousness? Anyone can escape into sleep, we are all geniuses when we dream, the butcher the poets equal there. But our perspicacity cannot bear that such a marvel should endure, nor that inspiration should be brought within everyones grasp; daylight strips us of the nights gifts. Only the madman enjoys the privilege of passing smoothly from a nocturnal to a daylight existence: no distinction between his dreams and his waking. He has renounced our reason, as the beggar has renounced our belongings. Both have found a way that leads beyond suffering and solved all our problems; hence they remain examples we cannot follow, saviors without adepts." - Author: Emil Cioran
