Quotes About Question

Quotes About Suffocating Relationships

"And home was as squalid psychically as physically. Psychically, it was a rabbit hole, a midden, hot with the frictions of tightly packed life, reeking with emotion. What suffocating intimacies, what dangerous, insane, obscene relationships between the members of the family group! Maniacally, the mother brooded over her children (her children) … brooded over them like a cat over its kittens; but a cat that could talk, a cat that could say, "My baby, my baby," over and over again. "My baby, and oh, oh, at my breast, the little hands, the hunger, and that unspeakable agonizing pleasure! Till at last my baby sleeps, my baby sleeps with a bubble of white milk at the corner of his mouth. My little baby sleeps …""Yes," said Mustapha Mond, nodding his head, "you may well shudder." - Author: Aldous Huxley

Quotes About Selfish Woman

Quotes About Uncommon

"Just about all men need a woman in one way or another, unless theyre very strange indeed. Tormenting you refreshes him. And you shouldnt underestimate the gratitude all men feel for womens beauty. Men who truly dont like flowers are very uncommon and men who dont respond to a beautiful woman are even more uncommon. Its not primarily sexual; its a lifting of the spirits beauty gives. Hell be in to torment you, and tease you, and enrage you, but really to have a good, refreshing look at you." - Author: Robertson Davies

Quotes About Spinning Tops

"Never yet has such furious movement brought in its train such slowness in the passage of time. Everything is spinning, only time stands still. The rotation goes on forever. And when the wheel finally stops spinning, the riders in their relief forget that they have paid money to enjoy themselves, and only had the fright of their lives. They feel glad to have gotten out alive." - Author: Joseph Roth

Quotes About Human Capabilities

"Those whom nature destined to make her disciples have no need of teachers. Bacon, Descartes, Newton — these tutors of the human race had no need of tutors themselves, and what guides could have led them to those places where their vast genius carried them? Ordinary teachers could only have limited their understanding by confining it to their own narrow capabilities. With the first obstacles, they learned to exert themselves and made the effort to traverse the immense space they moved through. If it is necessary to permit some men to devote themselves to the study of the sciences and the arts, that should be only for those who feel in themselves the power to walk alone in those mens footsteps and to move beyond them. It is the task of this small number of people to raise monuments to the glory of the human mind." - Author: Bacon

Quotes About Torn Hearts

"Week after week we were reduced to starting the same letter over again and copying out the same appeals, so that after a certain time words which had at first been torn bleeding from our hearts became void of sense. We copied them down mechanically, trying by means of these dead words to give some idea of our ordeal. And in the end, the conventional call of a telegram seemed to us preferable to this sterile, obstinate monologue and this arid conversation with a blank wall." - Author: Albert Camus
