Quotes About Colgan

"La primera cosa que recuerdo es estar debajo de algo. Era una mesa, veía la pata de una mesa, veía las piernas de la gente, y una parte del mantel colgando. Estaba oscuro allí debajo, me gustaba estar ahí. Debió de haber sido en Alemania, yo debía de tener entre uno y dos años de edad. Era en 1922. Me sentía bien bajo la mesa. Nadie parecía darse cuenta de que yo estaba allí. La luz del sol se reflejaba en la alfombra y en las piernas de la gente. Me gustaba la luz del sol. Las piernas de la gente no eran interesantes, no eran como el trozo de mantel que colgaba, ni como la pata de la mesa, ni como la luz del sol." - Author: Charles Bukowski

Quotes About Air Quality

"You must not think of time as a quantity, a period, a measure. Look at the sky," Gwynneth said. "The moon has now slipped away to another night, into another world. It was not the time it was here that you remember, Faolan, but rather the luminescence of the air, the blue shadows cast by the trees in its light. It was not the length of the time but the quality of the moons light that you felt and remember." Gwynneth paused. "It is the value, the quality that lives on." - Author: Kathryn Lasky

Quotes About Sustainable Cities

"How reprehensible it is when those blessed with commodities insist on ignoring the poor. Better to torment them, force them into indentured servitude, inflict compulsion and blows—this at least produces a connection, fury and a pounding heart, and these too constitute a form of relationship. But to cower in elegant homes behind golden garden gates, fearful lest the breath of warm humankind touch you, unable to indulge in extravagances for fear they might be glimpsed by the embittered oppressed, to oppress and yet lack the courage to show yourself as an oppressor, even to fear the ones you are oppressing, feeling ill at ease in your own wealth and begrudging others their ease, to resort to disagreeable weapons that require neither true audacity nor manly courage, to have money, but only money, without splendor: Thats what things look like in our cities at present" - Author: Robert Walser
