Jenny Offill Quotes

"My plan was to never get married. I was going to be an art monster instead. Women almost never become art monsters because art monsters only concern themselves with art, never mundane things. Nabokov didnt even fold his own umbrella. Vera licked his stamps for him."

Amanda L Chan Quotes

"Worrying about worrying is a dangerous cycle to fall into. People who get caught up in worry when they try to force themselves to stop worrying may want to try a different strategy – acceptance."

Bernardino Ramazzini Quotes

"Not only in antiquity but in our own times also laws have been passed...to secure good conditions for workers; so it is right that the art of medicine should contribute its portion for the benefit and relief of those for whom the law has shown such foresight...[We] ought to show peculiar zeal...in taking precautions for their safety. I for one have done all that lay in my power, and have not thought it beneath me to step into workshops of the meaner sort now and again and study the obscure operations of mechanical arts."

Quotes About Stages Of Relationships

"Our prayer life and rule of prayer will be shaped by the different stages of our spiritual journey as well. Many people who have just come to know Christ find that their words flow easily. Prayer is a joy for them. But, as with romantic relationships, there is a natural movement beyond this honeymoon phase. When feelings of intense connection with God ebb, we have a new opportunity to engage God - not based on cool spiritual vibes but as an expression of our genuine love for God. Times of spiritual dryness are normal for almost everyone, even if we havent sinned and to the best of our knowledge havent done anything to wall off our relationship with God. God may allow this dryness so that we can mature in our relationship with him and learn to seek him not for an ecstatic spiritual experience but out of a deeper love and commitment." - Author: Ken Shigematsu

Quotes About Bomb Shelters

"Look at us. We build giant highways and murderously fast cars for killing each other and committing suicide. Instead of bomb shelters we construct gigantic frail glass buildings all over Manhattan at Ground Zero, a thousand feet high, open to the sky, life a woman undressing before an intruder and provoking him to rape her. We ring Russias borders with missile-launching pads, and then scream that shes threatening us. In all history theres never been a more lurid mass example of the sadist-masochist expression of the thanatos instinct than the present conduct of the United States. The Nazis by comparison were Eagle Scouts." - Author: Herman Wouk

Quotes About Schumann

"O que é sensível tem de morrer pelo fogo, qual borboleta frágil da noite. E é por isso, diz Erika Kohut, que estes dois seres doentes à mais alta escala, isto é, Schumann e Schubert, irmanados pela partilha do mesmo prefixo, são os que têm um lugar mais próximo do meu coração dilacerado. Não o Schumann a quem já todos os pensamentos desertaram, mas o Schumann, mesmo mesmo antes disso ter acontecido! Uma unha negra antes disso! Ele já adivinha a deserção do seu espírito, já sofre com isso até aos seus vasos mais capilares, despede-se já da sua vida consciente, embrenhando-se pelos coros dos anjos e dos demónios, segura-se, porém, mais uma última vez, não mais possuidor da sua total consciência. Ainda um perscrutar nostálgico mais, o luto pela perda do bem mais precioso: ele próprio. A fase em que ainda se sabe o que em si próprio se perde, antes de renunciar por completo." - Author: Elfriede Jelinek
