Quotes About Menial

"Never before in history has such a sweeping fervor for freedom expressed itself in great mass movements which are driving down the bastions of empire. This wind of change blowing through Africa, as I have said before, is no ordinary wind. It is a raging hurricane against which the old order cannot stand [...] The great millions of Africa, and of Asia, have grown impatient of being hewers of wood and drawers of water, and are rebelling against the false belief that providence created some to be menials of others. Hence the twentieth century has become the century of colonial emancipation, the century of continuing revolution which must finally witness the total liberation of Africa from colonial rule and imperialist exploitation." - Author: Kwame Nkrumah

Quotes About Drinking Mead

"How hard it is, to be forced to the conclusion that people should be, nine tenths of the time, left alone! - When there is that in me that longs for absolute commitment. One of the poem-ideas I had was that one could respect only the people who knew that cups had to be washed up and put away after drinking, and knew that a Monday of work follows a Sunday in the water meadows, and that old age with its distorting-mirror memories follows youth and its raw pleasures, but that its quite impossible to love such people, for what we want in love is release from our beliefs, not confirmation in them. That is where the courage of love comes in - to have the courage to commit yourself to something you dont believe, because it is what - for the moment, anyway - thrills your by its audacity. (Some of the phrasing of this is odd, but it would make a good poem if it had any words...)" - Author: Philip Larkin

Quotes About Betting On Horses

"The taxi driver felt that it was a good observation, and said he was planning to build for the future, too: he had some money on the horses, and if he won, he would buy his own taxicab, and really do well.I felt very sorry. I told him that betting on the horses was a bad idea, but he insisted it was the only way he could do it. He had such good intentions, but his method was going to be luck.I wasnt going to go on philosophizing, so he took me to a place where there was a steel band playing some great calypso music, and I had an enjoyable afternoon." - Author: Richard P. Feynman

Quotes About Unable

"Writing is the dragon that lives underneath my floorboards. The one I incessantly feed for fear it may turn and devour my ass. Writing is the friend who doesnt return my phone calls; the itch Im unable to scratch; a dinner invitation from a cannibal; elevator music for a narcoleptic. Writing is the hope of lifting all boats by pissing in the ocean. Writing isnt something that makes me happy like a good cup of coffee. Its just something I do because not writing, as Ive found, is so much worse." - Author: Quentin R. Bufogle

Quotes About Questions And Answers

"Stop looking all over the place for "the answers" - whatever they are - and start looking for the questions - the inquiries which are most important in your life, and give them answers. You do not live each day to discover what it holds for you, but to create it." - Author: Neale Donald Walsch

Quotes About Hang Out

"Making fiction for children, making books for children, isnt something you do for money. Its something you do because what children read and learn and see and take in changes them and forms them, and they make the future. They make the world were going to wind up in, the world that will be here when were gone. Which sounds preachy (and is more than you need for a quotebyte) but its true. I want to tell kids important things, and I want them to love stories and love reading and love finding things out. I want them to be brave and wise. So I write for them." - Author: Neil Gaiman

You must be happy.""Yeah. He does. Its a relief. Shes a lot nicer. But then, your average angry snake is nicer than Fiona. Im sure shes happier wherever she is now, burning orphans or whatever she does with her time." - Author: Maureen Johnson
