Paul Evdokimov Quotes

"The East is unfamiliar with those confessions, memoirs, and autobiographies so beloved in the West. There is a clear difference in tonality.

Quotes About Madame Ratignolle

"Edna felt depressed rather than soothed after leaving them. The little glimpse of domestic harmony which had been offered her, gave her no regret, no longing. It was not a condition of life which fitted her, and she could see in it but an apalling and hopeless ennui. She was moved by a kind of commiseration for Madame Ratignolle, - a pity for that colorless existence which never uplifted its possessor beyond the region of blind contentment, in which no moment of anguish ever visited her soul, in which she would never have the taste of lifes delirium. Edna vaguely wondered what she meant by "lifes delirium." It had crossed her thought like some unsought, extraneous impression." - Author: Kate Chopin

Quotes About Finally Realizing What You Have

"We may say that all ages are dangerous to all people, in this dangerous life we live. But the thirties are a specially dangerous time for women.

Quotes About Rat Tails

"Society can and does execute its own mandates: and if it issues wrong mandates instead of right, or any mandates at all in things with it ought not to meddle, it practices a social tyranny more formidable than many kinds of political oppression, since, though not usually upheld by such extreme penalties, it leaves fewer means of escape, penetrating much more deeply into the details of life, and enslaving the soul itself." - Author: John Stuart Mill

"Explaining how the two of them, up there in the Green Mountains, had managed to dial down lifes urgencies and dial up its pleasures and richness, Gary put it beautifully and poetically: "Weve discovered a way" he confided with a sense of gleeful wonderment, "to bend time." I imagined Tracy and me engaged in a similar conspiracy a dozen years or so from now." - Author: Michael J. Fox
