[And Even If Something Had Once Been Committed To Paper, Did It Mean That It Was Still True? Always True? Unlike The Relative Permanence Of Paint, Words Were Temporal. You Uttered Them And They Evanesced, But If You Wrote Them, They Remained, Though Whether The Written Word Was Any More Truthful Than The Spoken Was A Mystery To Her. Only Paint Was Honest.]

James Kelman Quotes

"There existed very long saxophones from years ago. The player sat on their chair like a cellist; that same sort of feeling to it as well - unlike for example the way a harpist would be: the whole act differing in a very fundamental sense. Although harpists are fine. There is nothing to be said against harpists by any means whatsoever."

Quotes About Feeling Like A Badass

"Personally, I was never more passionate about manga than when preparing for my college entrance exams. Its a period of life when young people appear to have a great deal of freedom, but are in many ways actually opressed. Just when they find themselves powerfully attracted to members of opposite sex, they have to really crack the books. To escape from this depressing situation, they often find themselves wishing they could live in a world of their own - a world they can say is truly theirs, a world unknown even to their parents. To young people, anime is something they incorporate into this private world.I often refer to this feeling as one yearning for a lost world. Its a sense that although you may currently be living in a world of constraints, if you were free from those constraints, you would be able to do all sorts of things. And its that feeling, I believe, that makes mid-teens so passionate about anime." - Author: Hayao Miyazaki

Quotes About Outlaw

"I loved county fairs in the South. It was hard to believe that anything could be so consistently cheap and showy and vulgar year after year. each year I thought that at least one class act would force its way into a booth or sideshow, but I was always mistaken. The lure of the fair was the perfect harmony of its joyous decadence, its burned-out dishonored vulgarity, its riot of colors and smells, its jangling, tawdry music, and its wicked glimpse into the outlaw life of hucksters, tattoo parlors, monstrous freaks, and strippers." - Author: Pat Conroy

Quotes About Deepest Pain

"Nestled deep within the hills and valleys or our deepest desires, we are already everything we wish to be. Our infinite potential hugging our interior landscape like a hazy mist, in the way that low clouds hug the earth. Patiently waiting for us to paint them onto the brilliant blue skies of our reality." - Author: Jaeda DeWalt

Quotes About Accepting Others Opinions

"Its a fact...that in societies like ours sex truly represents a second system of differentiation, completely independent of money; and as a system of differentiation it functions just as mercilessly. The effects of these two systems are, furthermore, strictly equivalent. Just like unrestrained economic liberalism, and for similar reasons, sexual liberalism produces phenomena of absolute pauperization . Some men make love every day; others five or six times in their life, or never. Some make love with dozens of women; others with none. Its whats known as the law of the market...Economic liberalism is an extension of the domain of the struggle, its extension to all ages and all classes of society. Sexual liberalism is likewise an extension of the domain of the struggle, its extension to all ages and all classes of society." - Author: Michel Houellebecq

Quotes About Coming Out

"Shadows are where magic comes from. Your dark and dancing self, slipping behind and ahead and around, never quite looking at the sun. Fairyland-Below is the shadow of Fairyland, and this is where magic gets born and grows up and sows its oats before coming out into the world. The body does the living; the shadow does the dreaming. Before Halloween, we lived in the upper world, where the light makes us insubstantial, thin, scraps of thought and shade. We werent unhappy—we made good magic for the world, sportsmanlike stuff. We reflected our bodies deeds, and when our brothers and sisters went to sleep, we had our own pretty lives, our shadow loves, our shadow markets, our shadow races. But we had no idea, no idea how it could be under the world with our Hollow Queen. And now we shall never go back." - Author: Catherynne M. Valente

Quotes About Loss Of Child

"...for most people in the [Jewish] Ghetto [of Warsaw] nature lived only in memory -- no parks, birds, or greenery existed in the Ghetto -- and they suffered the loss of nature like a phantom-limb pain, an amputation that scrambled the bodys rhythms, starved the senses, and made basic ideas about the world impossible for children to fathom." - Author: Diane Ackerman

Quotes About Pasillo

"–Recuerdas que más te dije aquella vez en el recibidor, –dijo. – Quiero que seas feliz y quiero que él sea feliz. Sin embargo, cuando camines por ese pasillo para encontrarlo y unirse para siempre, romperás en fragmentos mi corazón. Tessa. Daría mi vida por cualquiera de los dos, daría mi vida por su felicidad, pensé que tal vez cuando me dijiste que no me amabas, mis sentimientos se irían y desaparecerían pero no lo hicieron. Crecen cada día más, te amo con una mayor desesperación en este momento de lo que te había amado antes, y en una hora te amaré más que ahora. Sé que es injusto decirte esto, lo sé, cuando no puedes hacer nada al respecto." - Author: Cassandra Clare

Quotes About Flickering Light

"How do you know me, girl?" He asked, his voice caked with venom. There was movement from the curtains and the throng of vamps seemed to cry out as one, in a sound of pure surprise.My head turned towards the figure of a young man. He looked like an angel, dressed in white and gold, but whether that was because he caused Petrel to stop or the flickering candlelight from the sconces above us, I couldnt say." - Author: Cyrese Covelli
