[And This Tenderness Was Not LikeThat Which A Certain PoetAt The Beginning Of The Century Called TrueAnd, For Some Reason, Quiet. No, Not At All?It Rang Out, Like The First Waterfall,It Crunched Like The Crust Of Bluish IceAnd It Prayed With A Swanlike Voice,And It Broke Down Right Before Our Eyes.]

"How many did she kill?""Dozens, my Lord, until her sword was dull with the blood of her enemies."Reign stroked the edge of the dagger with his forefinger until a drop of blood was drawn. The blood absorbed into the blade. "Only that? I will see her bathed in blood before me."

Marina Fiorato Quotes

"- Jesmo li uludo protratili zadnje dvije godine? Zar nismo već tada mogli ukrstiti naše puteve?- Ne mislim da smo ih protratili. Naši su se putevi ukrstili onoga dana kad smo se sreli. Samo smo još neko vrijeme morali putovati sami. Tada te nisam mogla prihvatiti. Previše se toga moralo učiniti - za previše toga iskupiti."

JM Coetzee Quotes

"That was why, later on, he began to lose interest in photography: first when colour took over, then when it became plain that the old magic of light-sensitive emulsions was waning, that to the rising generation the enchantment lay in a techne of images without substance, images that could flash through the ether without residing anywhere, that could be sucked into a machine and emerge from it doctored, untrue. He gave up recording the world in photographs then, and transferred his energies to saving the past."

Quotes About Intelligence And Power

"It is hard to see how a great man can be an atheist. Without the sustaining influence of faith in a divine power we could have little faith in ourselves. We need to feel that behind us is intelligence and love. Doubters do not achieve; skeptics do not contribute; cynics do not create. Faith is the great motive power, and no man realizes his full possibilities unless he has the deep conviction that life is eternally important, and that his work, well done, is a part of an unending plan." - Author: Calvin Coolidge

Quotes About Unchanging

"The best approach to religious codes that have become rigid and absolute is to acknowledge their arbitrariness and use them, if we use them at all, as a private discipline for ordering our own chaos. When they are proclaimed as the bearer of absolute and unchanging truth, defended in the traditional way, they enslave the human spirit rather than protect it from its own excesses. Jesus vision burned through the external systems to the anxious human heart that lay beneath them and called for its transformation into a perfection of love." - Author: Richard Holloway

Quotes About Character And Education

"Most of the methods of training the conscious side of the writer-the craftsman and the critic in him- are actually hostile to the good of the artists side; and the converse of this proposition is likewise true. But it is possible to train both sides of the character to work in harmony, and the first step in that education is to consider that you must teach yourself not as though you were one person, but two." - Author: Dorothea Brande

Quotes About Mindlessness

"Zombies are the liberal nightmare. Here you have the masses, whom you would love to love, appearing at your front door with their faces falling off; and youre trying to be as humane as you possibly can, but they are, after all, eating the cat. And the fear of mass activity, of mindlessness on a national scale, underlies my fear of zombies." - Author: Clive Barker

Quotes About Mineral Water

"[To] explain the phenomena of the mineral kingdom ... systems are usually reduced to two classes, according as they refer to the origin of terrestrial bodies to FIRE or to WATER; and ... their followers have of late been distinguished by the fanciful names of Vulcanists and Neptunists. To the former of these Dr HUTTON belongs much more than to the latter; though, as he employs the agency both of fire and water in his system, he cannot, in strict propriety, be arranged with either." - Author: HUTTON

Quotes About Inteligence

"A jak tak se svými Papíry a Myslí dováděl, inteligentněji se stával stále stále inteligentnějším a ta jeho inteligence, sama sebou rozmnožená a sama na sobě obkročmo sedíc, v tak ukrutnou inteligenci přerůstala, že člověka až hrůza jímala!" - Author: Witold Gombrowicz

Quotes About Prove

"As a result of its investigation, the NIH said that to qualify for funding, all proposals for research on human subjects had to be approved by review boards—independent bodies made up of professionals and laypeople of diverse races, classes, and backgrounds—to ensure that they met the NIHs ethics requirements, including detailed informed consent. Scientists said medical research was doomed. In a letter to the editor of Science, one of them warned, "When we are prevented from attempting seemingly innocuous studies of cancer behavior in humans … we may mark 1966 as the year in which all medical progress ceased." - Author: Rebecca Skloot
