"One single raga can be performed for two hours, three hours."

Elna Baker Quotes

"When slow songs do play, people joke that you should be able to fit "the standard works" between you and your partner. The standard works is a Mormon term referring to all of the religious books we study. So when youre slow dancing, the Old Testament, New Testament, The Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price should be able to fit in the space between you and your dance partner -- or youre dancing too close."

Jose Lezama Lima Quotes

"Ángel de la jiribilla, ruega por nosotros. Y sonríe. Obliga a que suceda. Enseña una de tus alas, lee: Realízate, cúmplete, sé anterior a la muerte. Repite: Lo imposible al actuar sobre lo posible, engendra un posible en la infinidad. Ya la imagen ha creado una causalidad, es el alba de la era poética entre nosotros. Ahora ya sabemos que la única certeza se engendra en lo que nos rebasa."

David Ebershoff Quotes

"The agony of martyrdom is almost too much to bear. In the early hours, when the loss is fresh, there is no comfort in knowing Glory will live on. We speak of the martyrs in History but we cannot know the actual pain they suffered in their final living hours. They enter the realm of the mythic, but we must never forget these were men like ourselves. When their flesh is torn, they cry out. They suffer as you or I would suffer, although more bravely. Remember Christ. Although I am now an enemy to Josephs legacy, I shudder when recalling his pain."

Carl Maria Von Weber Quotes

"What love is to man, music is to the arts and to mankind."

Peter Sagal Quotes

"You and I may look at a banana and see a banana. If forced to come up with something more inventive to do with it, perhaps wed mash it up, or maybe wed dip it in chocolate, and say What a good boy am I."

Viggo Mortensen Quotes

"Its hard not to get depressed when you pay attention to the world and how strangely and corrupt the people in it sometimes behave."

Quotes About Dynamite Comes In Small Packages

"Cave basilischium! The rex of serpenti, tant pleno of poison that it all shines dehors! Che dicam, il veleno, even the stink comes dehors and kills you! Poisons you...And it has black spots on his back, and a head like a coq, and half goes erect over the terra, and half on the terra like the other serpents. And it kills the bellula...The bellula?Oc! Parvissimum animal, just a bit plus longue than the rat, and also called the musk-rat. And so the serpe and the botta. And when they bite it, the bellula runs to the fenicula or to the cicerbita and chews it, and comes back to the battaglia. And they say it generates through the oculi, but most say they are wrong.I asked him what he was doing with a basilisk and he said that was his business." - Author: Umberto Eco

Quotes About Roy Lichtenstein

"If Abstract Expression reached for the sublime, Pop turned ordinary imagery into icons. Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol illuminated the transformative power of context and the process of reproduction.

Quotes About Life From Tumblr

"And Beauvoir knew then the man was a saint. Hes been touched by any number of medical men and women. All healers, all well intentioned, some kind, some rough.

Quotes About Uses Of Science

"A fine risk is always something to be taken in philosophy. ... Philosophy thus arouses a drama between philosophers and an intersubjective movement which does not resemble the dialogue of teamworkers in science, nor even the Platonic dialogue which is the reminiscence of a drama rather than a drama itself. It is sketched out in a different structure; empirically it is realized as the history of philosophy in which new interlocutors always enter who have to restate, but in which the former ones take up the floor to answer in the interpretations they arouse, and in which, nonetheless, despite a lack of "certainty in ones movements" or because of it, no one is allowed a relaxation of attention or a lack of strictness." - Author: Emmanuel Levinas

Quotes About Responding To Conflict

Quotes About Wingers

"(In reference to swingers) In the meantime, if you wish to declare yourself polyamorous, get used to the fact that the confusion is gong to remain as a pejorative. Sure, clear up the misunderstanding as much as you can, but dont put too much effort into setting yourself up as a "good", responsible, community-oriented polyamorist by contrasting yourself to the "bad" swingers - they may not be your siblings, but theyre definitely your cousins." - Author: Anthony D. Ravenscroft

Quotes About Christian Abstinence

"If you asked twenty good men to-day what they thought the highest of the virtues, nineteen of them would reply, Unselfishness. But if you asked almost any of the great Christians of old he would have replied, Love - You see what has happened? A negative term has been substituted for a positive, and this is of more than philological importance. The negative ideal of Unselfishness carries with it the suggestion not primarily of securing good things for others, but of going without them ourselves, as if our abstinence and not their happiness was the important point." - Author: C.S. Lewis
