Connection Has Made People Arrogant, Impatient, Hasty, And Presumptuous. ...I Don't Doubt That Instant Communication Has Been Good For Business, Even For The Publishing Business, But It Has Done Nothing For Literature, And Might Even Have Harmed It. In Many Ways Connection Has Been Disastrous. We Have Confused Information (of Which There Is Too Much) With Ideas (of Which There Are Too Few). I Found Out Much More About The World And Myself By Being Unconnected.]

Quotes About Underground River

"The voice came from the night all around him, in his head and out of it."What do you want? it repeated.He wondered if he dared to turn and look, realised he did not.Well? You come here every night, in a place where the living are not welcome. I have seen you.Why?I wanted to meet you, he said, without looking around. I want to live for ever. His voice crackedas he said it.He had stepped over the precipice. There was no going back. In his imagination, he could alreadyfeel the prick of needle-sharp fangs in his neck, a sharp prelude to eternal life.The sound began. It was low and sad, like the rushing of an underground river.

Quotes About Being Okay Alone

"I settled back on the bed with my own heavy sigh. "The point of this reluctant outpouring of all my crap isnt to make you feel guilty. I dont need anyone to be concerned for me. Thats my point. Will that change one day? I dont know. Im not asking it to. But Rhian, when you trusted James with all you baggage you decided that day that you were asking someone to be concerned. You were tired of being alone. Will staying with him be hard? Yes. Will fighting your fears every day be difficult? Yes. But how he feels for you... jeez, Rhian... thats worth it. And telling yourself that its okay to run way from him to be alone just because Im alone and okay with it, is bullshit. Im alone because I just am. Youre alone because you made a choice. And its the wrong fucking choice." - Author: Samantha Young

And he says to me the ingrate, to me the forgetful, to me the pitiless, to me the guilty one: Thanks! Cosette, my whole life passed at the feet of this man would be too little. That barricade, that sewer, that furnace, that cesspool,--all that he traversed for me, for thee, Cosette! He carried me away through all the deaths which he put aside before me, and accepted for himself. Every courage, every virtue, every heroism, every sanctity he possesses! Cosette, that man is an angel!" - Author: Victor Hugo
