Eleanor Keane Quotes

"He used to call vampires "the breathing ghosts"- for, as he put it, we existed in a kind of limbo-land between the living and the dead. We breathed, but we were not alive. We flitted through the air, but we still left foot prints on the ground. We were, and are, neither one nor the other, but something else entirely."

Quotes About Alyoshka

He fell silent, glancing behind him and shifting from foot to foot, his waterproof trousers rattling like the bulls bladders that boys use to learn swimming. Sterlingov angrily spat out his cigarette. Well? What about? A . . . about a secret matter , Alyoshka whispered.

Quotes About Short Flames

"The panes streamed with rain, and the short street he looked down into lay wet and empty, as if swept clear suddenly by a great flood. It was a very trying day, choked in raw fog to begin with, and now drowned in cold rain. The flickering, blurred flames of gas-lamps seemed to be dissolving in a watery atmosphere. And the lofty pretensions of a mankind oppressed by the miserable indignities of the weather appeared as a colossal and hopeless vanity deserving of scorn, wonder, and compassion." - Author: Joseph Conrad

Quotes About Zines

"But the toaster was quite satisfied with itself, thank you. Though it knew from magazines that there were toasters who could toast four slices at a time, it didnt think that the master, who lived alone and seemed to have few friends, would have wanted a toaster of such institutional proportions. With toast, its quality that matters, not quantity." - Author: Thomas M. Disch

Quotes About Druid

"And then a memory from Avalon surfaced in her mind, something she had not thought of for a decade; one of the Druids, giving instruction in the secret wisdom to the young priestesses, had said, If you would have the message of the Gods to direct your life, look for that which repeats, again and again; for this is the message given you by the Gods, the karmic lesson you must learn for this incarnation. It comes again and again until you have made it part of your soul and your enduring spirit." - Author: Marion Zimmer Bradley

Quotes About December

"My anthology continues to sell & the critics get more & more angry. When I excluded Wilfred Owen, whom I consider unworthy of the poets corner of a country newspaper, I did not know I was excluding a revered sandwich-board Man of the revolution & that some body has put his worst & most famous poem in a glass-case in the British Museum-- however if I had known it I would have excluded him just the same. He is all blood, dirt & sucked sugar stick (look at the selection in Fabers Anthology-- he calls poets bards, a girl a maid, & talks about Titanic wars). There is every excuse for him but none for those who like him. . . .(from a letter of December 26, 1936, in Letters on Poetry from W. B. Yeats to Dorothy Wellesley, p. 124)." - Author: W.B. Yeats
