Wayne Elise Quotes

"And yet I wasnt sure what his weakness was. We all do that as we get to know someone. Like a tabloid editor, we search for both greatness and weakness, jotting down notes in our heads for future exploitation. We are never comfortable with those who have no visible flaw."

Miroslav Penkov Quotes

"Its yad that propels us, like a motor, onward. Yad is like envy, but its not simply that. Its like spite, rage, anger, but more elegant, more complicated. Its like pity for someone, regret for something you did or did not do, for a chance you missed, for an opportunity you squandered."

Quotes About Incantation

"So he sat and listened to pigeons talking, till it seemed to him they were trying to lull the restlessness of Earth, and thought that they might by drowsy incantation be putting some spell against time, through which it could not come to harm their nests; for the power of time was not made clear to him yet and he knew not yet that nothing in our fields has the strength to hold out against time." - Author: Lord Dunsany

Quotes About Little Birds

"When we first arrived at Auschwitz there were birds. I didnt know what kind, just brown birds, like the finches. They came for about a week and then the Nazis electrified the fences. I was out early the first morning they had the power on. A whole flight of these little birds came in and as they settled on the wire they made quick bright bursts of flame and smoke. The others did not know what was happening and they kept coming in and getting incinerated. The next day the birds did not come close to the camp. We saw them in the distance for a few days, but they never came close. At first I thought they had just naturally learned a lesson, but then I realized they had become sensitive to evil." - Author: Lawrence Thornton

Quotes About Violence In Media

"Even the most outspoken of the critics must admit that long before we had print and film media to "spread the word," mankind was engaged in all forms of cruel and despicable behavior.

Quotes About Competencia

"Nos guiamos por promesas idílicas de bienestar económico individual: un trabajo estable, ropa de calidad, una familia pequeña y agradable, buena comida, vacaciones tres veces al año.Nuestros intereses y nuestro sentido de la responsabilidad se han trasladado claramente al ámbito de lo privado, en detrimento de la política. Las aspiraciones de mi generacionen tienen más que ver con la seguridad, la tradición, la calidez de los afectos y el conocerse a uno mismo, que con la experimentación, las rupturas, la aventura y la solidaridad: así lo exige la llamada "sociedad de la competencia". […] Ya decimos que sí a hacer carrera y rendir profesionalmente ¿cómo podríamos acceder también a abrazar una posición política o asumir una responsabilidad pública?" - Author: Meredith Haaf

Quotes About Warm Weather In Winter

"If I were you, Mr Lascelles," said Childermass, softly, "I would speak more guardedly. You are in the north now. In John Uskglasss own country. Our towns and cities and abbeys were built by him. Our laws were made by him. He is in our minds and hearts andspeech. Were it summer you would see a carpet of tiny flowers beneath every hedgerow, of a bluish-white colour. We call them Johns Farthings. When the weather is contrary and we have warm weather in winter or it rains in summer the country people say that JohnUskglass is in love again and neglects his business. And when we are sure of something we say it is as safe as a pebble in John Uskglasss pocket." - Author: Susanna Clarke

Quotes About Strange Feelings

"Shed been there for a few hours when Sawyer showed up. It was after midnight, but there he was, walking around the track. The moon was out and he was wearing white shorts and a white polo, so she could see him very clearly from her seat. She didnt move, so she didnt know what made him look up. But he did, and her breath caught, as it did every time he looked at her in school. They stared at each other for a long moment. Then he crossed the track and walked up the bleachers towards her. Sawyer had never approached her before, but he had always watched her at school. A lot of people watched her, so that in itself wasnt unusual. But he was always so deliberate about it. Shed often wondered if that was why she had these strange feelings for him, because she thought he really saw her." - Author: Sarah Addison Allen
