David Denby Quotes

"Whether white, black, Asian, or Latino, American students rarely arrive at college as habitual readers, which means that few of them have more than a nominal connection to the past. It is absurd to speak, as does the academic left, of classic Western texts dominating and silencing everyone but a ruling elite or white males. The vast majority of white students do not know the intellectual tradition that is allegedly theirs any better than black or brown ones do. They have not read its books, and when they do read them, they may respond well, but they will not respond in the way that the academic left supposes. For there is only one ‘hegemonic discourse in the lives of American undergraduates, and that is the mass media. Most high schools cant begin to compete against a torrent of imagery and sound that makes every moment but the present seem quaint, bloodless, or dead."

Irving Kirsch Quotes

"The results of decades of neurotransmitter-depletion studies point to one inescapable conclusion: low levels or serotonin, norepinephrine or dopamine do not cause depression. here is how the authors of the most complete meta-analysis of serotonin-depletion studies summarized the data: "Although previously the monoamine systems were considered to be responsible for the development of major depressive disorder (MDD), the available evidence to date does not support a direct causal relationship with MDD. There is no simple direct correlation of serotonin or norepinephrine levels in the brain and mood. In other words, after a half-century of research, the chemical-imbalance hypothesis as promulgated by the drug companies that manufacture SSRIs and other antidepressants is not only with clear and consistent support, but has been disproved by experimental evidence."

Celia Rivenbark Quotes

"I dont define success by how much money someone makes. I dont define success by how many trophies or plaques or awards someone has.I dont define it by membership in exclusive clubs or the ability to name-drop about someones famous friends.I dont define it by how many luxury cars or opulent homes someone might own or how many sumptuous vacations they might taken in exotic locales all over the globe.I dont define success...oh, hell, Im just kidding. Actually, all that stuff is fantastic!"

Kathryn Smith Quotes

"Now, what did my brother do to earn your ire this time?-insist that you are better off with a boring young man who will love you for your dowry? Hang your puppy like that dastardly Heathcliff?"The last was meant to make her laugh, she knew, and laugh she did. And when she was done, she was in a much better humor. "You have read Wuthering Heights?"He nodded. "I have. Dont look at me like that! You do not believe me?""I believe you, but I must confess my surprise. You do not seem the kind of man who would read novels."A sly smile curved his thin lips. "My dear girl. Who reads novels?""Mostly women, I would suspect," she replied, setting her empty champagne flute on the tray of a footman. Yet another passed with a fresh tray of full glasses and she took one of those."Exactly. If one wants to converse with a woman, one should have a variety of subjects at hand.""But you only want to talk to them so you can seduce them.""You shock and wound me."Rose grinned. "Impossible."

Luego, cuando tuve que abandonar mis estudios, comprendí muy pronto que todo eso carecía de importancia." - Author: Albert Camus
