Phillip Lopate Quotes

"As I go about my daily life, Im turning it into a story. If something peculiar happens to me at the grocery store or the dry cleaners, I already start shaping it into a narrative the moment Im out the door, and I bring it home to my wife the way a cat presents a captured mouse to its master. If my wife has news of her own she wants to tell first, I am very put out, though I try to hide it, because here is this gift of an anecdote nicely shaped, dripping from my mouth."

It is by the ephemeral that our feeling is so strongly aroused for what endures, or strives to endure." - Author: Eudora Welty

Quotes About Living In Fear Of Love

"Secrets are my currency: I deal in them for a living. The secrets of desire, of what people really want, and of what they fear the most. The secrets of why love is difficult, sex complicated, living painful and death so close and yet placed far away. Why are pleasure and punishment closely related? How do our bodies speak? Why do we make ourselves ill? Why do you want to fail? Why is pleasure hard to bear?" - Author: Hanif Kureishi

Quotes About Modern Art

"When our mother is seen only as the one-dimensional Mary of modern times, instead of the great dual force of life and death, She is relegated to the same second-class status of most women in the world. She is without desires of Her own, selfless and sexless except for Her womb. She is the cook, the mistress, bearer and caretaker of children and men. Men call upon Her and carry Her love and magic to form a formidable fortress, a team of cannons to protect them against their enemies. But for a long, long time the wars that women have been left to wage on behalf of men, on behalf of the human race, have started much sooner, in the home, in front of the hearth, in the womb. We do what we must to protect and provide for our young our families, our tribes" - Author: Ana Castillo

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. If you will comply with my conditions, I will leave them and you at peace; but if you refuse, I will glut the maw of death, until it be satiated with the blood of your remaining friends." - Author: Mary Shelley
