[As With Dutchy And Carmine On The Train, This Little Cluster Of Women Has Become A Kind Of Family To Me. Like An Abandoned Foal That Nestles Against Cows In The Barnyard, Maybe I Just Need To Feel The Warmth Of Belonging. And If I'm Not Going To Find That With The Byrnes, I Will Find It, However Partial And Illusory, With The Women In The Sewing Room.]

Susan Cooper Quotes

"And so the Shortest Day came and the year diedAnd everywhere down the centuries of the snow-white worldCame people singing, dancing,To drive the dark away.They lighted candles in the winter trees;They hung their homes with evergreen;They burned beseeching fires all night longTo keep the year alive.And when the new years sunshine blazed awakeThey shouted, revelling.Through all the frosty ages you can hear themEchoing behind us - listen!All the long echoes, sing the same delight,This Shortest Day,As promise wakens in the sleeping land:They carol, feast, give thanks,And dearly love their friends,And hope for peace.And now so do we, here, now,This year and every year."

"Disertační práce M. Friedmana - tato práce byla zaměřena výrazně empiricky, jejím nejvýznamnějším teoretickým přínosem bylo rozlišení mezi permanentní čili stálou a přechodnou čili kolísající složkou příjmu, což je myšlenka, která je základem pozdější Friedmanovy hypotézy permanentního důchodu."

Quotes About Monoculture

"The attention for bad literature is symptomatic: they pretends its the most normal thing in the world to fill an entire newspaper page with talk about a bad book, and good books are silenced to death. This mechanism is exactly the same formula as used in the Eurovision Songfestival: to present monoculture, and the proverbial hatred for that monoculture is only ritualistic, intended to give the reader the impression that the newspaper is on their side. Its the formula of entertainment: present things the reader can feel superior to." - Author: Martinus Hendrikus Benders

Quotes About Similarly

"Evidently, a given object took no particular amount of time to draw; instead the artist took the time, or didnt take it, at pleasure. And,similarly, things themselves possessed no fixed and intrinsic amount of interest; instead things were interesting as long as you had attention to give them. How long does it take to draw a baseball mitt? As much time as you care to give it. Not an infinite amount of time, but more time than you first imagined. For many days, so long as you want to keep drawing that mitt, and studying that mitt, there will always be a new and finer layer of distinctions to draw out and lay in. Your attention discovers—seems thereby to produce—an array of interesting features in any object, like a lamp." - Author: Annie Dillard
