[Cyborgs Are Not Reverent; They Do Not Re-member The Cosmos. They Are Wary Of Holism, But Needy For Connection- They Seem To Have A Natural Feel For United Front Politics, But Without The Vanguard Party. The Main Trouble With Cyborgs, Of Course, Is That They Are The Illegitimate Offspring Of Militarism And Patriarchal Capitalism, Not To Mention State Socialism. But Illegitimate Offspring Are Often Exceedingly Unfaithful To Their Origins.]

Jean Philippe De Tonnac Quotes

"But what is a book? And what will change if we read onscreen rather than by turning the pages of a physical object? What will we gain, and more importantly, what will we lose? Old-fashioned habits, perhaps. A certain sense of the sacred that has surrounded the book in a civilisation that has made it our holy of holies. A peculiar intimacy between the author and reader, which the context of hypertextuality is bound to damage. A sense of existing in a self-contained world that the book and, along with it, certain ways of reading used to represent."

Johannes V Jensen Quotes

Quotes About Memory In Beloved

"There in the dark her memory was refreshed, and she succumbed to her earlier dreams. Along with the idea of romantic love, she was introduced to another - physical beauty. Probably the most destructive ideas in the history of human thought. Both originated in envy, thrived in insecurity, and ended in disillusion. In equating physical beauty with virtue, she stripped her mind, bound it, and collected self-contempt by the heap. She forgot lust and simple caring for. She regarded love as possessive mating, and romance as the goal of the spirit. It would be for her a well-spring from which she would draw the most destructive emotions, deceiving the lover and seeking to imprison the beloved, curtailing freedom in every way." -- Toni Morrison, The Bluest Eye" - Author: Toni Morrison

Quotes About Cards

"You cant cure people of their character, she read. After this he had crossed something out then gone on, You cant even change yourself. Experiments in that direction soon deteriorate into bitter, infuriated struggles. You haul yourself over the wall and glimpse new country. Good! You can never again be what you were! But even as you are congratulating yourself you discover tied to one leg the string of Christmas cards, gas bills, air letters and family snaps which will never allow you to be anyone else. A forty-year-old woman holds up a doll she has kept in a cardboard box under a bed since she was a child. She touches its clothes, which are falling to pieces; works tenderly its loose arm. The expression that trembles on the edge of realizing itself in the slackening muscles of her lips and jaw is indescribably sad. How are you to explain to her that she has lost nothing by living the intervening years of her life? How is she to explain that to you?" - Author: M. John Harrison

Quotes About Time Consuming

"The feeling a child has for a missing parent or a parent has for a missing child is so strong, it is like a visceral pain coming from deep inside. A nagging, aching pain that hurts without relief, like a cancer growing in your belly that gnaws at you all the time, day and night. One that you would cut out if you could get to it. And even though your body is starving, you cannot eat. And, regardless of how tired you are, you cannot sleep. The kind of consuming and unrelenting longing and mental anguish that causes even the strongest of men to fall to their knees and cry out to heaven for relief." - Author: Mike Foster

Quotes About Nosey Coworkers

"Its not that you have lost touch with these people. You havent. Its just that they have kept in such close touch with each other. When scrolling through your cell phone, you generally let their numbers be highlighted for a second, hovering, and then move along to people you have spoken to within the last month. Its not that youre a bad friend to these people. Its just that youre not a great one. They know the names of each others coworkers and the blow-by-blow nature of each others dramas; they go camping in the Berkshires together and have such sentences in their conversational arsenal as "you left your lip gloss in my bathroom." You have no such sentences. Your connection to your friends is half-baked and you are starting to forget their siblings names, never mind their coworkers. But youre still in the play even if youre no longer a main character." - Author: Sloane Crosley

Quotes About Toils

"Most people give little enough real thought to their own mortality. Oh yes, they gabble on about heaven and the bosom of Abraham, but really, they are weary of life almost from the time theyre born, and are only waiting for it all to end.
