[But Poets Were Not Considered Dangerous And They Were Advised To Exercise Self-censorship. At Most, Poets Were Requested Not To Write At All. I Took Advantage Of This Negative Liberty.]

Jon Foreman Quotes

"Greed, envy, sloth, pride and gluttony: these are not vices anymore. No, these are marketing tools. Lust is our way of life. Envy is just a nudge towards another sale. Even in our relationships we consume each other, each of us looking for what we can get out of the other. Our appetites are often satisfied at the expense of those around us. In a dog-eat-dog world we lose part of our humanity."

John Gilmore Quotes

"How many of you have broken no laws this month? Thats the kind of society I want to build. I want a guarantee - with physics and mathematics, not with laws - that we can give ourselves real privacy of personal communications."

Theodorus Martinus Eduard Liket Quotes

"De mathematen worden samen met de natuur- en scheikundigen, de medicijnmannen van de twintigste eeuw genoemd, waarbij velen zich dan nog zeer argwanend afvragen of deze profeten van de nieuwe tijd het geluk van de mensheid voor ogen hebben. Het is stellig ten dele vanwege het gebruik van deze symbolen dat men de wiskunde gaat beschouwen als een geheimtaal van ingewijden, die zich aldus een eigen wereld scheppen waarin het moeiljk verkeren is, indien men niet van jongs af aan zijn weg daarin heeft gevonden."

Quotes About Evolving And Change

"It was an alarming thought that these false selves should still have me in their power, and in my bewilderment I began wondering whether any such thing as my real self could be said to exist at all. Like a sudden revelation, then, it became clear to me that the self was always changing, always developing, only capable of evolving fully through the integration of all past semblances. I wouldnt be my true self till I accepted and learned to know all those selves Id disowned and deserted...As if this were something I could do consciously, there and then, the last of my inertia vanished, consumed by an ardent desire for identification with the essential ‘I – until this had been achieved Id always be as I was now, wandering like a stranger, lost, frightened and confused, among the changes and contradictions of my own personality." - Author: Anna Kavan

Quotes About Ultra

"Assim como todo excesso numa atividade costuma levar ao contrário do que se pretendia, as palavras servem de fato para tornar os pensamentos compreensíveis, mas só até certo ponto. Quando esse ponto é ultrapassado, elas tornam os pensamentos a serem comunicados mais e mais obscuros. Encontrar tal ponto é uma tarefa do estilo e uma questão da capacidade de julgar, pois toda palavra supérflua age diretamente contra seu objetivo." - Author: Arthur Schopenhauer

I know so many languages that sometimes I say words out of place.At the end of the session I asked him when I should return. He told me that another visit wouldnt be necessary, that usually his therapy worked the first time." - Author: Rebecca Lee
