Teresa De La Parra Quotes

"Memories do not change, and change is the law of existence. If our dead, the closest, the most beloved, were to return to us after a long absence and instead of the old, familiar trees were to find in our souls English gardens and stone walls -- that is to say, other loves, other tastes, other interests, they would gaze upon us sadly and tenderly for a moment, wiping away their tears, and then return to their tombs to rest."

Quotes About Grieving Mother

"When a husband loses his wife, they call him a widower. When a wife loses her husband, they call her a widow. And when somebodys parents die, they call them an orphan.

Because the pain behind the loss is so immeasurable and unbearable, that it cannot be described in a single word. It just cannot be described." - Author: Bhavya Kaushik

Quotes About Nih

"I expected this reception. All men hate the wretched; how, then, must I be hated, who am miserable beyond all living things! Yet you, my creator, detest and spurn me, thy creature, to whom thou art bound by ties only dissoluble by the annihilation of one of us. You purpose to kill me. How dare you sport thus with life? Do your duty towards me, and I will do mine towards you and the rest of mankind.

Quotes About Members Of Parliament

"I was to grow used to hearing, around New York, the annoying way in which people would say: Edward Said, such a suave and articulate and witty man, with the unspoken suffix for a Palestinian. It irritated him, too, naturally enough, but in my private opinion it strengthened him in his determination to be an ambassador or spokesman for those who lived in camps or under occupation (or both). He almost overdid the ambassadorial aspect if you ask me, being always just too faultlessly dressed and spiffily turned out. Fools often contrasted this attention to his tenue with his membership of the Palestine National Council, the then-parliament-in-exile of the people without a land. In fact, his taking part in this rather shambolic assembly was a kind of noblesse oblige: an assurance to his landsmen (and also to himself) that he had not allowed and never would allow himself to forget their plight. The downside of this noblesse was only to strike me much later on." - Author: Christopher Hitchens
