"In addition, we were unable to meet openly to discuss the progress of the book, for we were both on the list of persons banned from communicating with other banned persons."

Kenn Kaufman Quotes

"Haunting the library as a kid, reading poetry books when I was not reading bird books, I had been astonished at how often birds were mentioned in British poetry. Songsters like nightingales and Sky Larks appeared in literally dozens of works, going back beyond Shakespeare, back beyond Chaucer. Entire poems dedicated to such birds were written by Tennyson, Wordsworth, Shelley, Keats, and many lesser-known poets. I had run across half a dozen British poems just about Sky Larks; Thomas Hardy had even written a poem about Shelleys poem about the Sky Lark. The love of birds and of the English language were intermingled in British literary history.Somehow we Americans had failed to import this English love of birds along with the language, except in diluted form. But we had imported a few of the English birds themselves — along with birds from practically everywhere else."

Fazul Rahman Quotes

"The Impression that Pakistan being an Islamic State is thereby a Theocratic State is being sedulously fostered in certain quarters with the sole object of discrediting her in the eyes of the world. To anyone conversant with the basic principles of Islam, it should be obvious that in the fields of civics, Islam has always stood on complete social democracy and social justice, as the history of the early Caliphs will show, and has not sanctioned government by a sacerdotal class deriving its authority from God. The ruler and the ruled alike are #equal before Islamic Law, and the ruler, far from being a vicegerent of God on earth, is but a representative of people who have chosen him to serve them...Islam has not recognized any distinction between man and man based on sex, race or worldly possessions..." ---Fazul Rahman, First Education Minister of Pakistan, All Pakistan Educational Conference, Karachi, Nov 1947"

Quotes About Sick Mom

"All, save I, were at rest or in enjoyment; I, like the archfiend, bore a hell within me, and finding myself unsympathised with, wished to tear up the trees, spread havoc and destruction around me, and then to have sat down and enjoy the ruin. But this was a luxury of sensation that could not endure; I became fatigued with excess of bodily exertion, and sank on the damp grass in the sick impotence of despair. There was none among the Myriad of men that existed who would pity or assist me; and should I feel kindness towards my enemies? No: from that moment I declared ever-lasting war against the species, and, more than all, against him who had formed me, and sent me forth to this insupportable misery.-The Creature" - Author: Mary Shelley

Quotes About Being A Stumbling Block

"Wise Blood was written by an author congenitally innocent of theory, but one with certain preoccupations. That belief in Christ is to some a matter of life and death has been a stumbling block for readers who would prefer to think it a matter of no great consequence. For them Hazel Motes integrity lies in his trying with such vigor to get rid of the ragged figure who moves from tree to tree in the back of his mind. For the author Hazels integrity lies in his not being able to. Does ones integrity ever lie in what he is not able to do? I think that usually it does, for free will does not mean one will, but many wills conflicting in one man. Freedom cannot be conceived simply. It is a mystery and one which a novel, even a comic novel, can only be asked to deepen." - Author: Flannery OConnor

Quotes About Being Dealt A Hand

"Brother—""I thought wed already decided we werent that, either."Grabbing his shoulder, I stopped him before he could reach the door. "Look, Im sorry! Im sorry I did this to you."He turned to look at me, his brow raised high. "Youre sorry. So, what . . . we go back to being cool again?""I dont know, man. But we cant do this.""And why cant we? You couldnt stand to let me have one normal day with her. Have I done anything to you since she and I broke up?" He paused, but I didnt respond. "No. I havent. You dealt with it by being an ass, so let me deal with this my way. And my way doesnt include acting like you didnt steal my girl from me.""I didnt steal Harper!"He opened the door and took a step outside, his shaking hand gripping the outer knob. When he looked back at me, his eyes were flat and lifeless. "You stole my entire world." - Author: Molly McAdams

Quotes About Placa

"For me, madness was definitely not a condition of illness; I did not believe that I was ill. It was rather a country, opposed to Reality, where reigned an implacable light, blinding, leaving no place for shadow; an immense space without boundary, limitless, flat; a mineral, lunar country, cold as the wastes of the North Pole. In this stretching emptiness, all is unchangeable, immobile, congealed, crystallised. Objects are stage trappings, placed here and there, geometric cubes without meaning.People turn weirdly about, they make gestures, movements without sense; they are phantoms whirling on an infinite plain, crushed by the pitiless electric light. And I - I am lost in it, isolated, cold, stripped purposeless under the light." - Author: Marguerite Sechehaye

Quotes About Corroborate

"For his part, Mendeleev scanned Lecoq de Boisbaudrans data on gallium and told the experimentalist, with no justification, that he must have measured something wrong, because the density and weight of gallium differed from Mendeleevs predictions. This betrays a flabbergasting amount of gall, but as science philosopher-historian Eric Scerri put it, Mendeleev always "was willing to bend nature to fit his grand philosophical scheme." The only difference between Mendeleev and crackpottery is that Mendeleev was right: Lecoq de Boisbaudran soon retracted his data and published results that corroborated Mendeleevs predictions." - Author: Sam Kean

Quotes About Mediji

"Od vseh navad, ki jih ima sodobni človek, je prebiranje dnevnega časopisa gotovo ena najslabših. Zjutraj, ko je glava najbolj odprta, se vanjo vsuje zlo, kar ga je prejšnji dan pridelal svet. V preteklosti je zadostovalo, da nisi bral časnikov, pa si bil rešen. Danes to ni več mogoče; obstajajo mediji in dovolj je, da jih vklopiš za sekundo, pa te zlo že naskoči in prodre vate." - Author: Susanna Tamaro
