[Connection" Is The Triumphal Cry These Days. 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.]

Jean Rouch Quotes

"I look at the human sciences as poetic sciences in which there is no objectivity, and I see film as not being objective, and cinema verite as a cinema of lies that depends on the art of telling yourself lies. If youre a good storyteller then the lie is more true than reality, and if youre a bad one, the truth is worse than a half lie."

Quotes About Mafalda

"Oliver liked to keep the windows and shutters wide open in the afternoon, with just the swelling sheer curtains between us and life beyond, because it was a crime to block away so much sunlight and keep such a landscape from view, especially when you didnt have it all life long, he said. Then the rolling fields of the valley leading up to the hills seemed to sit in a rising mist of olive green: sunflowers, grapevines, swatches of lavender, and those squat and humble olive trees stooping like gnarled, aged scarecrows gawking through our window as we lay naked on my bed, the smell of his sweat, which was the smell of my sweat, and next to me my man-woman whose man-woman I was, and all around us Mafaldas chamomile-scented laundry detergent, which was the torrid afternoon world of our house." - Author: André Aciman

Quotes About Bible Elections

". . . Beware of being wise above that which is written. Beware of forming fanciful theories of your own, and then trying to make the Bible square with them. Beware of making selections from your Bible to suit your taste. Dare not to say, ‘I believe this verse, for I like it. I refuse that, for I cannot reconcile it with my views. Nay! but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? By what right do you talk in this way? Surely it were better to say, over every chapter in the word, ‘Speak, Lord, for thy servant heareth. Ah! if men would do this, they would never deny the unquenchable fire." - Author: J.C. Ryle
