Chevy Stevens Quotes

"Sorry I missed our last session, but I saw my mother and I needed some time to pick myself back up off the floor. You know, its funny, but the night after I saw her I really wanted to sleep in the closet. I stood outside it for the longest time with my pillow in hand, but I knew opening that door would be going backward, so I lay back down on my bed and conjured up your office in my mind. I told myself I was resting on your couch and you were watching over me. Thats how I fell asleep. (324)"

Quotes About The Truth Coming Out In The End

"For as we would wish that a painter who is to draw a beautiful face, in which there is yet some imperfection, should neither wholly leave out, nor yet too pointedly express what is defective, because this would deform it, and that spoil the resemblance; so since it is hard, or indeed perhaps impossible, to show the life of a man wholly free from blemish, in all that is excellent we must follow truth exactly, and give it fully; any lapses or faults that occur, through human passions or political necessities, we may regard rather as the shortcomings of some particular virtue, than as the natural effects of vice; and may be content without introducing them, curiously and officiously, into our narrative, if it be but out of tenderness to the weakness of nature, which has never succeeded in producing any human character so perfect in virtue as to be pure from all admixture and open to no criticism." - Author: Plutarch

Quotes About Socialism And Communism

"Karl Marx got a bum rap. All he was trying to do was figure out how to take care of a whole lot of people. Of course, socialism is just "evil" now. Its completely discredited, supposedly, by the collapse of the Soviet Union. I cant help noticing that my grandchildren are heavily in hock to communist China now, which is evidently a whole lot better at business than we are. You talk about the collapse of communism or the Soviet Union. My goodness, this country collapsed in 1929. I mean it crashed, big time, and capitalism looked like a very poor idea." - Author: Kurt Vonnegut

Quotes About Nury

"Ciemna puszcza jodłowa z obu stron okalała zastygły potok. Wiatr otrzepał ze śnieżnego puchu drzewa czarne i widmowe w zmierzchu dnia. Głęboka ciszazaścieliła kraj. Ziemia wydawała się nieruchoma, półżywa jak rozpacz, opuszczona i zastygła. Nie był to już nawet wyraz smutku. Włóczył się ponad nią jak gdyby śmiech dziwaczny, stokroć bardziej niż smutek ponury; śmiech gorzki niby skrzywienie ust sfinksa, przenikliwy jak mróz, nasiąkły okrucieństwem niewinnej obojętności. Zwycięski, stłumiony uśmiech wszystkowiedzących wieków nad przemijaniem i wysiłkiem życia. Dzikość. Brutalna dzikość Północy o sercu zastygłym." - Author: Jack London

Quotes About Yearning For Knowledge
