Marina Tsvetaeva Quotes

"The forbidden cabinet. The forbidden fruit. That fruit is—a volume, a huge blue-lilac volume with a gold inscription slantwise: Collected Works of A.S. Pushkin. I read the fat Pushkin in the cabinet with my nose in the book and on the shelf, almost in darkness and almost right up against it and even a little bit suffocated by his weight that came right into the throat, and almost blinded by the nearness of the tiny letters. I read Pushkin right into the chest and right into the brain."

Jerome Ferrari Quotes

"Peut-être pouvons-nous même reconnaître les signes presque imperceptibles qui annoncent quun monde vient de disparaître, non pas le sifflement des obus par-dessus les plaines éventrées du Nord, mais le déclenchement dun obturateur, qui trouble à peine la lumière vibrante de lété, la main fine et abîmée dune jeune femme qui referme tout doucement, au milieu de la nuit, une porte sur ce qui naurait pas dû être sa vie, ou la voile carrée dun navire croisant sur les eaux bleues de la Méditerranée, au large dHippone, portant depuis Rome la nouvelle inconcevable que des hommes existent encore, mais que leur monde nest plus."

David Nail Quotes

"As awesome as it is to be with a big act and get three catered meals a day and get a dressing room with an actual shower in it, its hard sometimes as a new artist to come across in 25 minutes. You get 25 minutes to hopefully impress these people. I think the longer set is more suitable for us and gives us an opportunity to connect better."

Quotes About Judging Character

"Utter objectivity...is not only impossible when judging literature, its not exactly desirable. Fiction involves trace elements of magic; it works for reasons we can explain and also for reasons we cant. If novels or short-story collections could be weighed strictly in terms of their components (fully developed characters, check; original voice, check; solidly crafted structure, check; serious theme, check) they might satisfy, but they would fail to enchant.
