"Good sense travels on the well-worn paths; genius, never. And that is why the crowd, not altogether without reason, is so ready to treat great men as lunatics."

FL Lucas Quotes

"Thence it is possible to arrive by easy stages at the happy notion, not uncommon among intellectuals, that taste consists of distaste, and that the loftiest of pleasures is that of feeling displeased; and thus to end by enjoying almost nothing in literature but ones own opinions, while oneself incapable of writing a living sentence."

Quotes About Space Debris

Quotes About Georgie

"As we walked along the flatblock marina, I was calm on the outside, but thinking all the time - Now it was to be Georgie the general, saying what we should do and what not to do, and Dim as his mindless greeding bulldog.

There was a window open with the stereo on, and I viddied right at once what to do." - Author: Anthony Burgess

Quotes About Family Rudeness

"We hear a great deal about the rudeness of the ris- ing generation. I am an oldster myself and might be expected to take the oldsters side, but in fact I have been far more impressed by the bad manners of par- ents to children than by those of children to parents. Who has not been the embarrassed guest at family meals where the father or mother treated their grown-up offspring with an incivility which, offered to any other young people, would simply have termi- nated the acquaintance? Dogmatic assertions on mat- ters which the children understand and their elders dont, ruthless interruptions, flat contradictions, ridicule of things the young take seriously some- times of their religion insulting references to their friends, all provide an easy answer to the question "Why are they always out? Why do they like every house better than their home?" Who does not prefer civility to barbarism?" - Author: C.S. Lewis

Quotes About Fiction Novels

"I do not like postmodernism, postapocalyptic settings, postmortem narrators, or magic realism. I rarely respond to supposedly clever formal devices, multiple fonts, pictures where they shouldnt be—basically gimmicks of any kind. I find literary fiction about the Holocaust or any other major world tragedy to be distasteful. I do not like genre mash-ups a la the literary detective novel or the literary fantasy. Literary should be literary, and genre should be genre, and crossbreeding rarely results in anything satisfying. I do not like childrens books, especially ones with orphans, and I prefer not to clutter my shelves with young adult. I do not like anything over four hundred pages or under one hundred fifty pages. I am repulsed by ghostwritten novels by reality television stars, celebrity picture books, sports memoirs, movie tie-in editions, novelty items, and -- I imagine this goes without saying -- vampires." - Author: Gabrielle Zevin

Quotes About Eyes And Pain

"Im trying to paint an underwater ocean scene. Its just not working. My queen angelfish is supposed to have these bright yellow eyes and electric-blue stripes along the edge of her fin. Instead, it looks like Im trying to paint a fried egg with some blue bacon. Maybe I can pass it off as postmodern." - Author: Susane Colasanti

Quotes About Working Together In Business

"Democrats think the country works better with a strong middle class, real opportunities for poor people to work their way into it and a relentless focus on the future, with business and government working together to promote growth and broadly shared prosperity.

Quotes About Headphone

"Even though Liz might have been at the bottom of our class in P&E, she is the best person Ive ever seen at getting me out of bed, which is saying something, considering the woman who raised me. Macey was asleep in her headphones, so Liz felt free to yell, "Were doing this for you!" as she pulled on my left leg and Bex went in search of breakfast. Liz put her foot against the mattress for leverage as she tugged. "Come on, Cam. GET. UP. " "No!" I said, burrowing deeper into the covers. "Five more minutes. " Then she grabbed my hair, which is totally a low blow, since everyone knows Im tender-headed. "Hes a honeypot. " "Hell still be one in an hour, " I pleaded. Then Liz dropped down beside me. She leaned close. She whispered, "Tell Suzie shes a lucky cat. " I threw the covers aside. "Im up!" - Author: Ally Carter

Quotes About Idealism And Realism
