Mario Benedetti Una Mujer Desnuda Y En Lo Oscuro Quotes

"Una mujer desnuda y en lo oscuro tiene una claridad que nos alumbra de modo que si ocurre un desconsuelo un apagón o una noche sin luna es conveniente y hasta imprescindible tener a mano una mujer desnuda. Una mujer desnuda y en lo oscuro genera un resplandor que da confianza entonces dominguea el almanaque vibran en su rincon las telarañas y los ojos felices y felinos miran y de mirar nunca se cansan.Una mujer desnuda y en lo oscuro es una vocación para las manos para los labios es casi un destino y para el corazón un despilfarro una mujer desnuda es un enigma y siempre es una fiesta descifrarlo. Una mujer desnuda y en lo oscuro genera una luz propia y nos enciende el cielo raso se convierte en cielo y es una gloria no ser inocente una mujer querida o vislumbrada desbarata por una vez la muerte."

Halldor Laxness Quotes

"The distinctive features of the worlds civilisations are not simply and solely the giraffe and the city of Rome, as the children may perhaps have been led to imagine on the first evening, but also the elephant and the country of Denmark, beside many other things. Yes, everyday brought its new animal and its new country, its new kings and its new gods, its quota of those tough little figures which seem to have no significance, but are nevertheless endowed with a life and a value of their own, and may be added together or subtracted from one another at will. And finally poetry, which is grater than any country ; poetry with its bright palaces."

John Herschel Quotes

"As an astronomer in the true sense of the term, Sir John Herschel stood before all his contemporaries. Nay, he stood almost alone."

Jacob Weisberg Quotes

"As an editor, you develop a B.S. meter—an internal warning system that signals caution about journalism that doesnt feel trustworthy. Sometimes its a quote or incident thats too perfect —a feeling I always had when reading stories by Stephen Glass in the New Republic. Sometimes its too many errors of fact, the overuse of anonymous sources, or signs that a reporter hasnt dealt fairly with people or evidence. And sometimes its a combination of flaws that produces a ring of falsity, the whiff of a bad egg. Theres no journalist who sets off my bullshit alarm like Ron Suskind."

Anna Maxted Quotes

"Curiosity was a mild irritant, but nothing in the face of fear like this. By doing nothing, I determined that nothing would change, and it didnt. People moan about being in limbo, but actually, I found limbo the safest place to be."

Joaquin Sabina Quotes

"Pídele cuentas a la pura verdadque no se pringa, que no tiene piedad;yo sólo me colguémedallas que no gané."

Daniel Keys Moran Quotes

"Well, the future of the Internet is... Reality."

Gilbert Newton Lewis Quotes

"Since hydrogen is a constituent of most of our electrolytic solvents, the definition of an acid or base as a substance which gives up or takes up hydrogen ion would be more general than the one we used before, but it would not be universal."

William Whitehead Quotes

"Wisdom alone is true ambitions aim, wisdom the source of virtue, and of fame, obtained with labour, for mankind employed, and then, when most you share it, best enjoyed."

JC Lillis Quotes

"Theres only one kind of girl I can tolerate being, and it is not the Girl Who Gives it All Up for Love."

Quotes About Following Blindly

"Im reading a book that actually scares me. It is not a form of fear that is embodied in some irrational phobia of a specific object, living being, or an event, but a fear of words, of actions of beings towards one another, how one word or command wrongly distributed can destroy someone or many people. How following blindly into the paths of something you truly believe is right without any rationale to back it up or the thought of the consequences it can cause may blindly lead others to their death. How in that moment, thinking youre doing it for the right reasons, you ignore all the laws of nature that tell you that human life is sacred and that no one mans ideals can ever compensate for its loss. To have the power to destroy and cause suffering without much care. This is a fear of what humanity is turning into, and such a future truly scares me." - Author: Aliaa El Nashar
