Rudolf Flesch Quotes

"What are we after when we open one of those books? What is it that makes a classic a classic? ... in old-fashioned terms, the answer is that it wll elevate your spirit. And thats why I cant take much stock in the idea of going through a list of books or covering a fixed number of selections, or anyway striving for the blessed state of having read this, or the other. Having read a book means nothing. Reading a book may be the most tremendous experience of your life; having read it is an item in your memory, part of your receding past... Why we have that odd faith in the magic of having read a book, I dont know. We dont apply the same principle elsewhere: We dont believe in having heard Mendelssohns violin concerto...I say, dont read the classics -- try to discover your own classics; every life has its own."

Quotes About Stage Managers

"According to most philosophers, God in making the world enslaved it. According to Christianity, in making it, He set it free. God had written, not so much a poem, but rather a play; a play he had planned as perfect, but which had necessarily been left to human actors and stage-managers, who had since made a great mess of it." - Author: G.K. Chesterton

Quotes About Partiality

"[H]is first purpose was to explain himself, and before they reached Mr. Allens grounds he had done it so well that Catherine did not think it could ever be repeated too often. She was assured of his affection; and that heart in return was solicited, which, perhaps, they pretty equally knew was already entirely his own; for, though Henry was now sincerely attached to her, though he felt and delighted in all the excellencies of her character and truly loved her society, I must confess that his affection originated in nothing better than gratitude, or, in other words, that a persuasion of her partiality for him had been the only cause of giving her a serious thought. It is a new circumstance in romance, I acknowledge, and dreadfully derogatory of an heroines dignity; but if it be as new in common life, the credit of a wild imagination will at least be all my own." - Author: Jane Austen
