[Envy And Resentment Are Terribly Corrosive Passions. To Suffer At The Sight Or Even The Thought Of Others' Enjoyment Of Life Makes One A Committed Enemy Of Human Happiness. Such People End Up Being Practically A Curse Upon The Human Race. They Vandalize Life, Exerting Themselves Not In The Pursuit Of Gain Or Pleasure, But To Hinder Others' Enjoyment.]

Quotes About Teaching Albert Einstein

"Why should I have to hide the fact that I dont believe theres a supreme being? Theres no proof of it. Theres no harm in saying youre an atheist. It doesnt mean you treat people any differently.

Quotes About Funny Guy Friends

"God, could that dopey girl dance. Buddy Singer and his stinking band was playing Just One of Those Things and even they couldnt ruin it entirely. Its a swell song. I didnt try any trick stuff while we danced--I hate a guy that does a lot of show-off tricky stuff on the dance floor--but I was moving her around plenty, and she stayed with me. The funny thing is, I thought she was enjoying it, too, till all of a sudden she came out with this very dumb remark. "I and my girl friends saw Peter Lorre last night," she said. "The movie actor. In person. He was buyin a newspaper. Hes cute.""Youre lucky," I told her. "Youre really lucky. You know that?" She was really a moron. But what a dancer." - Author: J.D. Salinger

Quotes About Poets And Love

"Each of us is aware hes a material being, subject to the laws of physiology and physics, and that the strength of all our emotions combined cannot counteract those laws. It can only hate them. The eternal belief of lovers and poets in the power of love which is more enduring that death, the finis vitae sed non amoris that has pursued us through the centuries is a lie. But this lie is not ridiculous, its simply futile. To be a clock on the other hand, measuring the passage of time, one that is smashed and rebuilt over and again, one in whose mechanism despair and love are set in motion by the watchmaker along with the first movements of the cogs. To know one is a repeater of suffering felt ever more deeply as it becomes increasingly comical through a multiple repetitions. To replay human existence - fine. But to replay it in the way a drunk replays a corny tune pushing coins over and over into the jukebox?" - Author: Stanisław Lem
