Cahit Kulebi Quotes

"RüzgarŞimdi bir rüzgar geçti buradanKoştum ama yetişemedim,Nerelerde gezmiş tozmuşÖğrenemedim.Besbelli denizden çıkıpKıyılar boyunca gitmiştir,Tuz kokusu, katran kokusu, ter kokusuYüreğini allak bullak etmiştir.Sonra başlamış tırmanmaya dağlara doğruBulutları koyun gibi gütmüştür,Okşayıp otları yaylalardaBüyütmüştür.Köylere de uğradıysa eğerIslak, karanlık odalarda beşik sallanmıştır,Güneş altında çalışanlaraİmdat eylemiştir.Sonra başlayıp alçalmaya ovalara doğru,Haşhaş tarlalarında eflatun, pembe, beyaz,Kıraçlarda mavi dikenler..Toz toprak gözlerine gitmiştir.Şehirlere uğramış ki yanımdan geçti,Haşhaş çiçeğine benzer kızlar görmüştür,Bir gülüş, bir tel saç, allık pudraAlıp gitmiştir.Şimdi bir rüzgar geçti buradanKoştum ama yetişemedim,Soraydım söylerdi herhaldeSoramadım."

Quotes About Horlicks

"Our favorite film is Vertigo. Amy Eleni and I must watch it seventeen or eighteen times a year, and with each viewing our raptness grows looser and looser; we dont need the visuals anymore--one or the other of us can go into the kitchen halfway through and call out the dialogue while making up two cups of Horlicks. From the minute you see empty, beautiful, blond Madeleine Elster, you know she is doomed because she exists in a way that Scottie, the male lead, just doesnt. You know that Madeleine is in big trouble, because shes a vast wound in a landscape where wounds arent allowed to stay open--people have to shut up and heal up. Shes in trouble because the film works to a plan that makes trauma speak itself out, speak itself to excess until it dies; this film at the peak of its slyness, when people sweat and lick their lips excessively and pound their chests and grab their hair and twist their heads from side to side, performing this unspeakable torment." - Author: Helen Oyeyemi

Quotes About Herapath

"So many of the properties of matter, especially when in the gaseous form, can be deduced from the hypothesis that their minute parts are in rapid motion, the velocity increasing with the temperature, that the precise nature of this motion becomes a subject of rational curiosity. Daniel Bernoulli, John Herapath, Joule, Krönig, Clausius, &c., have shewn that the relations between pressure, temperature and density in a perfect gas can be explained by supposing the particles move with uniform velocity in straight lines, striking against the sides of the containing vessel and thus producing pressure. (1860)" - Author: Daniel Bernoulli

Quotes About Connecting

"When you start reconnecting with these missing [parts of yourself], you tend to realize that, until then, you had never really been incarnated on the planet. You thought you were, but if one considers the totality of your being, you were hardly there. You were literally all over space. The result was that you were sleeping your life instead of living it. Only when a gathering of all the parts has taken place inside your heart can you be fully present and find your real purpose on earth." - Author: Samuel Sagan

Quotes About Polarized

"But nirvana is a radical transformation of how it feels to be alive: it feels as if everything were myself, or as if everything---including "my" thoughts and actions---were happening of itself. There are still efforts, choices, and decisions, but not the sense that "I make them"; they arise of themselves in relation to circumstances. This is therefore to feel life, not as an encounter between subject and object, but as a polarized field where the contest of opposites has become the play of opposites." - Author: Alan Wilson Watts

Quotes About Life In The 1930s

"Miyata was fluent and intelligent. Nothing was beyond his curiosity. He seemed to be above the confusion of life, as if he had been commissioned to spend his own in undisturbed judgement of the world about him, protected always by a mandate from the gods. They spoke briefly of Korea and then of the past war with the United States. Miyata had been in Japan for its entire duration and must have been deeply affected, but when he talked about it, it was without bitterness. Wars were not of his doing. He considered them almost poetically, as if they were seasons, the cruel winters of man, even though almost all the work he had done in the 1930s and early 1940s had been lost when his house was burned in the great incendiary raid of 1944. He described the night vividly, the endless hours, the bombers thundering low over the storms of fire." - Author: James Salter
