John Scofield Quotes

"It turns out kids today still learn that four-chord progression when theyre just picking up the guitar."

Carey McWilliams Quotes

"A preoccupation with power - black power, student power, flower power, poor power, the power structure - is the striking aspect of the American political scene at the moment. Oddly enough, obsession with power goes hand in hand with a fear of power. Some of the New Left groups that talk the toughest about power are extremely reluctant to see power operate in any institutional form; within their own organizations, they shun hierarchies and formally structured relations of authority. What the preoccupation with power reflects, essentially, is a deep=seated, pervasive feeling of powerlessness."

Giacomo Leopardi Quotes

"It was always dear to me, this solitary hill,and this hedgerow here, that closes out my view,from so much of the ultimate horizon.But sitting here, and watching here, in thought,I create interminable spaces,greater than human silences, and deepestquiet, where the heart barely fails to terrify.When I hear the wind, blowing among these leaves,I go on to compare that infinite silencewith this voice, and I remember the eternaland the dead seasons, and the living present,and its sound, so that in this immensitymy thoughts are drowned, and shipwreck seems sweetto me in this sea."

Alan Lee Quotes

"I keep drawing the trees, the rocks, the river, Im still learning how to see them; Im still discovering how to render their forms. I will spend a lifetime doing that. Maybe someday Ill get it right."

Margaret Wander Bonanno Quotes

"It is only possible to live happily ever after on a daily basis."

Quotes About Curves In The Road

"HereYou always belonged here.You were theirs, certain as a rock.Im the one who worriesif I fit in with the furniture and the landscape. But I "follow too muchthe devices and desires of my own heart."Already the curves in the roadare familiar to me, and the mountainin all kinds of light, treating all people the same.and when I come over the hill, I see the house, with its generous and firm proportions, smokerising gaily from the chimney.I feel my life start up again, like a cutting when it growsthe first pale and tentativeroot hair in a glass of water." - Author: Jane Kenyon

Quotes About Monday Blues

"The big weekend rush is on. The big city emptying itself out at once. Just a skeleton crew left to keep it going until Monday morning. Everybody getting out - everybody but me, everybody but those who are coming here for me tonight. Were going to have the whole damned town to ourselves.("New York Blues")" - Author: Cornell Woolrich

Quotes About Late Mothers

"Matthew knew that phrenology was nonsense, and yet, years later, he found himself making judgments similar to those made by his father; slippery people looked slippery; they really did. And how we become like our parents! How their scorned advice - based, we felt in our superiority, on prejudiced and muddled folk wisdom - how their opinions are subsequently borne out by our own discoveries and sense of the world, one after one. And as this happens, we realise with increasing horror that proposition which we would never have entertained before: our mothers were right!" - Author: Alexander McCall Smith

Quotes About Natural Endowment

"Everybody allows that to know any other science you must have first studied it, and that you can only claim to express a judgment upon it in virtue of such knowledge. Everybody allows that to make a shoe you must have learned and practised the craft of the shoemaker, though every man has a model in his own foot, and possesses in his hands the natural endowments for the operations required. For philosophy alone, it seems to be imagined, such study, care, and application are not in the least requisite" - Author: Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

Quotes About Meanest

"He understands the texture and meaning of the visible universe, and sees into the life of things, not by the help of mechanical instruments, but of the improved exercise of his faculties, and an intimate sympathy with Nature. The meanest thing is not lost upon him, for he looks at it with an eye to itself, not merely to his own vanity or interest, or the opinion of the world. Even where there is neither beauty nor use—if that ever were—still there is truth, and a sufficient source of gratification in the indulgence of curiosity and activity of mind. The humblest printer is a true scholar; and the best of scholars - the scholar of Nature." - Author: William Hazlitt

Quotes About Manipulating The Truth

"Do you like Rhiannon more than me?" ... Theyre two completely different concepts. When a girl asks you a question like that, theres no way you can be honest. They say they want you to be honest, but then they get all upset when you are. You cant win. Theres no way to win. There are questions you just cant answer without manipulating the truth." - Author: Susane Colasanti

Quotes About Outside Play

"..Maman feeds her plants the way she feeds her children: water and fertilizer for the kentia, green beans and vitamin C for us. Thats the heart of the paradigm: concentrate on the object, convey all the nutritional elements from the outside to the inside and, as they make their way inside, they will cause the object to grow and prosper...you are satisfied with the knowledge that youve done what you were supposed to do, youve played your nurturing role: you feel reassured and, for a time, things feels safe...It would be so much better if we could share our insecurity, if we could all venture inside ourselves and realize that green beans and vitamin C, however much they nurture us, cannot save lives, nor sustain souls." - Author: Muriel Barbery

Quotes About Empire State Building

"Our society was utterly, ruinously derivative (although the word derivative as a criticism is itself derivative). We were the first human beings who would never see anything for the first time. We stare at the wonders of the world, dull-eyed, underwhelmed. Mona Lisa, the Pyramids, the Empire State Building. Jungle animals on attack, ancient icebergs collapsing, volcanoes erupting. I cant recall a single amazing thing I have seen firsthand that I didnt immediately reference to a movie or TV show. A fucking commercial. You know the awful singsong of the blasé: Seeeen it. Ive literally seen it all, and the worst thing, the thing that makes me want to blow my brains out, is: The secondhand experience is always better. The image is crisper, the view is keener, the camera angle and the soundtrack manipulate my emotions in a way reality cant anymore." - Author: Gillian Flynn
