[Also Ist Mein Sohn Ein Simpel.'In Einer Hinsicht. Aber Der Größte Teil Der Menschheit Ist So. Weil Es Sonst Zu Schwer Zu Ertragen Ist, Mensch Zu Sein. Im Gegensatz Zu Den Tieren Wissen Wir Zu Viel. Sie, Die Anderen Tiere, Wissen Gerade Genug, Um Ihren Job Zu Machen Und Zu Sterben. Um Zu Essen, Zu Schlafen, Zu Vögeln, Babys Zu Kriegen Und Zu Sterben.]

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn Quotes

"Freedom! To fill peoples mailboxes, eyes, ears and brains with commercial rubbish against their will, television programs that are impossible to watch with a sense of coherence. Freedom!

Susana Fortes Quotes

"People beleived that the most devastating part of a war are the corpses with their guts out in the open, the puddles of blood, and all that you can capture at first glance. But sometimes the horror is off to the side, in the lost look on the face of a woman whos just been raped, as she limps away alone within the ruins, trying to keep her head down. Gerda and Capa were not aware of this yet. They were too young. And that was their first conflict. They still believed war had its romantic side."

Quotes About Openings

"Dark swarmed behind her eyelids and, in jerky seconds of sleep, she dreamed the dark came into her.

Quotes About Malvolio Twelfth Night

"Are not all lifelong friendships born at the moment when at last you meet another human being who has some inkling (but faint and uncertain even in the best) of that something which you were born desiring, and which, beneath the flux of other desires and in all the momentary silences between the louder passions, night and day, year by year, from childhood to old age, you are looking for, watching for, listening for? You have never had it. All the things that have ever deeply possessed your soul have been but hints of it -- tantalising glimpses, promises never quite fulfilled, echoes that died away just as they caught your ear. But if it should really become manifest -- if there ever came an echo that did not die away but swelled into the sound itself -- you would know it. Beyond all possibility of doubt you would say "Here at last is the thing I was made for." - Author: C.S. Lewis
