Quotes About Ideale

"Imparai che il mondo non vede la tua anima, che non gliene importa un accidente delle speranze, dei sogni e dei dolori che si nascondono oltre la pelle e le ossa.

Capivano che gran parte di ciò che erano dipendeva, o poteva dipendere, dalla simmetria della loro struttura ossea, dallo spazio tra gli occhi, dalla lunghezza del mento, dalla punta del naso, se il naso si univa alla fronte con un angolo ideale o meno.La bellezza è un dono gigantesco, immeritato, dato a caso, stupidamente." - Author: Khaled Hosseini

Quotes About Mediocre Life

"Envy is the religion of the mediocre. It comforts them, it soothes their worries, and finally it rots their souls, allowing them to justify their meanness and their greed until they believe these to be virtues. Such people are convinced that the doors of heaven will be opened only to poor wretches like themselves who go through life without leaving any trace but their threadbare attempts to belittle others and to exclude - and destroy if possible - those who, by the simple fact of their existence, show up their own poorness of spirit, mind, and guts. Blessed be the one at whom the fools bark, because his soul will never belong to them." - Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón

Quotes About Accident Survival

"I may enter a zone of transcendence, in which I marvel at all the accidents of fate, since the beginning of life on earth, that led to my genes being created and my standing in this particular garden in a contemplative and imagining mind. Ive been reading recently how reflection evolved. what a fascinating solution to the rigors of survival…how amazing that a few basic ingredients- the same ones that form the mountains, plants, and rivers- when arranged differently and stressed could result in us.More and more of late, I find myself standing outside of life, with a sense of the human saga laid out before me. it is a private vision, balanced between youth and old age, a vision in which I understand how caught up in striving we humans get, and a little of why, and how difficult it is even to recognize, since it feels integral to our nature and is. but I find it interesting that, according to many religions, life and begins and ends in a garden." - Author: Diane Ackerman
