"Idolatry is really not good for anyone. Not even the idols."

Jenny Erpenbeck Quotes

"Home. When it rains, you can smell the leaves in the forest and the sand. Its all so small and mild, the landscape surrounding the lake, so manageable. The leaves and the sand are so close, its as if you might, if you wanted, pull them on over your head. And the lake always laps at the shore so gently, licking the hand you dip into it like a young dog, and the water is soft and shallow."

David Keirsey Quotes

"You want to be the first to do something. You want to create something. You want to innovate something...I often think of Edison inventing the light bulb. Thats what I want to do. I want to drive over the bridge coming out of New York there and look down on that sea of lights that is New Jersey and say, `Hey, I did that!"

Michael Offutt Quotes

"Vibrations caused by powerful turbines stirred Kathy from a dream centered around a funeral. Her eyes flicked open, face dry, and she had no idea where she was. In her dream, she saw crystalline silver spiders again, weaving their way through the graveyard, leaving trails of silver webs over corpses, binding them for some unknown purpose in the cold dark earth."

Quotes About Devon Still

"Its not that fact of him telling me hes not going to kill me that assures me Ive got some time to breathe. Predo could look me in the eye and tell me whiskeys good and cigarettes are better and Id still need a drink and a Lucky to believe hes not lying. The man breeds lies. He spawns them asexually, with no need for any assistance. He exhales and lies fill the air. Alone in a room, he mutters lies to himself to keep from falling into the trap of truth-telling. In the day, sleeping in his bed, deep in the safest heart of Coalition headquarters, he dreams in lies. The better to keep his left hand from knowing what betrayals his right has planned.Stretched on the rack and burned with hot irons, Dexter Predo will be in no danger of revealing the truth. Living so far beyond its borders." - Author: Charlie Huston

Quotes About A Beautiful World

"Aestheticism and radicalism must lead us to jettison reason, and to replace it by a desperate hope for political miracles. This irrational attitude which springs from intoxication with dreams of a beautiful world is what I call Romanticism. It may seek its heavenly city in the past or in the future; it may preach ‘back to nature or ‘forward to a world of love and beauty; but its appeal is always to our emotions rather than to reason. Even with the best intentions of making heaven on earth it only succeeds in making it a hell – that hell which man alone prepares for his fellow-men." - Author: Karl Popper

"Adam Trask to Cathy: "You know about the ugliness in people. You showed me the pictures. You use all the sad, weak parts of a man, and God knows he has them." ... "But you-yes, thats right- you dont know about the rest. You dont believe I brought you the letter because I dont want your money. You dont believe I love you. And the men who come to you here with their ugliness, the men in the pictures- you dont believe those men could have goodness and beauty in them. You see only one side, and you think-more than that, youre sure- thats all there is."...I seem to know that theres a part of you missing. Some men cant see the colour green, but they may never know they cant. I think you are only part of a human.

That would be horrible." - Author: John Steinbeck

Quotes About Legend

"…Even the idea of a city never entered his mind. It was as if he had walked under the millimeter of haze just above the inked fibers of a map, that pure zone between land and chart, between distances and legends, between nature and storyteller. The place they had chosen to come to, to be their best selves, to be unconscious of ancestry. Here, apart from the sun compass and the odometer mileage, and the book, he was alone, his own invention. He knew during these times how the mirage worked, the fata morgana, for he was within it." - Author: Michael Ondaatje
