Amelie Nothomb Quotes

"De trois à dix-huit ans, les Japonais étudient comme des possédés. De vingt-cinq ans à la retraite, ils travaillent comme des forcenés. De dix-huit à vingt-cinq ans, ils sont très conscients de vivre une parenthèse unique : il leur est donné de sépanouir. Même ceux qui ont réussi le terrible examen dentrée de lune des onze universités sérieuses peuvent un peu souffler : seule la sélection première importait vraiment"

Quotes About Bridges And Education

You do not need to send him to the back door. He will go without being told. In fact, if there is no back door, he will cut one for his special benefit. His education makes it necessary." - Author: Carter G. Woodson

Quotes About Shared Values

"[...] a familiar art historical narrative [...] celebrates the triumph of the expressive individual over the collective, of innovation over tradition, and autonomy over interdependence. [...] In fact, a common trope within the modernist tradition of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries involved the attempt to reconstruct or recover the lost ideal of an art that is integrated with, rather than alienated from, the social. By and large, however, the dominant model of avant-garde art during the modern period assumes that shared or collective values and systems of meaning are necessarily repressive and incapable of generating new insight or grounding creative praxis." - Author: Grant H.

Quotes About Bones And Life

"The most racking pangs succeeded: a grinding in the bones, deadly nausea, and a horror of the spirit that cannot be exceeded at the hour of birth or death. Then these agonies began swiftly to subside, and I came to myself as if out of a great sickness. There was something strange in my sensations, something indescribably sweet. I felt younger, lighter, happier in body; within I was conscious of a heady recklessness, a current of disordered sensual images running like a millrace in my fancy, a solution of the bonds of obligation, an unknown but innocent freedom of the soul. I knew myself, at the first breath of this new life, to be more wicked, tenfold more wicked, sold a slave to my original evil and the thought, in that moment, braced and delighted me like wine." - Author: Robert Louis Stevenson
