[Certainly, I Am Writing As A 21st-century Woman, So I Am Much More Inclined To View Her As A Three-dimensional Woman. I Think We Keep Coming Up With This Stubborn Problem Of A Woman Being Judged By Her Appearance Rather Than Her Accomplishments. We Are Much More Inclined To Ask: Was Cleopatra Beautiful?]

Michael Lewis Quotes

"It was the job of people like me to make up reasons, to spin a plausible yarn. And its amazing what people will believe. Heavy selling out of the Middle East was an old standby. Since no one ever had any clue what the Arabs were doing with their money or why, no story involving Arabs could ever be refuted. So if you didnt know why the dollar was falling, you shouted out something about Arabs."

Quotes About Excited

"You get moments all the time that kind of make you pinch yourself, some of them make you quite emotional.

Quotes About Piccolo

"Ogni singolo uomo vede soltanto una porzione della verità complessiva; e molto spesso, in realtà quasi sempre, egli deliberatamente, si inganna anche su questo piccolo frammento.

Il che vuol dire nessun uomo del tutto" - Author: Philip K. Dick

Quotes About Larger

"It was from a weekly visit to the cinema that you learned (or tried to learn) how to strut, to smoke, to kiss, to fight, to grieve. Movies gave you tips about how to be attractive (...). But whatever you took home from the movies was only part of the larger experience of losing yourself in faces, in lives that were not yours - which is the more inclusive form of desire embodied in the movie experience. The strongest experience was simply to surrender to, to be transported by, what was on the screen" - Author: Susan Sontag

Quotes About Dunnett

"(Dorothy) Dunnett is the master of the invisible, particularly in her later books. Where is this tension coming from? Why is this scene so agonizing? Why is this scene so emotional? Tension and emotion pervade the books, sometimes almost unbearably, yet when you look at the writing, at the actual words, theres nothing to show that the scene is emotional at all. I think it is because Dunnett layers her novels, meaning that each event is informed by what has come before (and what came before that, and what came before that) but Dunnett doesnt signpost in the text that this is happening, leaving it to the reader to bring the relevant information to the table" - Author: C.S. Pacat

Quotes About Fueled

"Mort drove one of those little hybrid cars that, when not running on gasoline, was fueled by idealism.

Or possibly Global Thermonuclear War." - Author: Jim Butcher
