Benjamin Silliman Quotes

"Astronomy is, not without reason, regarded, by mankind, as the sublimest of the natural sciences. Its objects so frequently visible, and therefore familiar, being always remote and inaccessible, do not lose their dignity."

Mark Helprin Quotes

"To be mad is to feel with excruciating intensity the sadness and joy of a time which has not arrived or has already been. And to protect their delicate vision of that other time, madmen will justify their condition with touching loyalty, and surround it with a thousand distractive schemes. These schemes, in turn, drive them deeper and deeper into the darkness and light (which is their mortification and their reward), and confront them with a choice. They may either slacken and fall back, accepting the relief of a rational view and the approval of others, or they may push on, and, by falling, arise. When and if by their unforgivable stubbornness they finally burst through to worlds upon worlds of motionless light, they are no longer called afflicted or insane. They are called saints."

Bill Paxton Quotes

"I hate tests. Its a really lousy way to judge a persons ability."

Gustavo Gutierrez Quotes

"We take it for granted that Jesus was not interested in political life: his mission was purely religious. Indeed we have witnessed . . . the iconization of the life of Jesus: This is a Jesus of hieratic, stereotyped gestures, all representing theological themes. In this way, the life of Jesus is no longer a human life, submerged in history, but a theological life -- an icon."

"Autumn comeslike a buyer of cloth,her long fingerstouching,turning orange,yellow, brown.taking what she wants,stretchingthe bone taut air.Her skin crackles beneathour feet.I didnt think anyone wanted me,bruises pulled like a sweater aroundmy neck.We talkin the pore tightening air,branches bare,about the girl buried in the chillof prewinter.We show each otherour mutilated childrenin the guise of womenas autumn plucksat our lips.Each color, blue, black, ochrepopping like kisseson the rib lined flesh,the puberty soft things.And we musehow womenkeep bruiseshiddenbeneath deadleaves."

Dick Durbin Quotes

"Our party is a diverse one, as is my home state of Illinois."

Jared Taylor Quotes

"Most whites do not have a racial identity, but they would do well to understand what race means for others. They should also ponder the consequences of being the only group for whom such an identity is forbidden and who are permitted no aspirations as a group."

Bum Phillips Quotes

"Two kinds of ballplayers arent worth a darn: One that never does what hes told, and one who does nothin except what hes told."

Amanda Harlech Quotes

"I think the artistic process comes from disorder. When you are happy, its not always a feeling that you can identify. Its like a dog sitting in front of a fire. Pain isolates you, but it can also clarify things."

Quotes About Coping Death

"I see that Ive become a really bad correspondent. Its not that I dont think of you. You come into my thoughts often. But when you do it appears to me that I owe you a particularly grand letter. And so you end in the "warehouse of good intentions": "Cant do it now." "Then put it on hold." This is ones strategy for coping with old age, and with death--because one cant die with so many obligations in storage. Our clever species, so fertile and resourceful in denying its weaknesses." - Author: Saul Bellow

Quotes About Tattooed Man

"Jilly looked at it with a sinking heart. It was difficult enough when the exotic, undeniably gorgeous creature of her fantasies had turned out to be an obnoxious bully. Of course he had to have a Harley, as well, completing the perfect bad-boy image. With the tattooed teardrops on his high cheekbones and spiky, waist-length, flame-colored hair and his long, leather-clad legs and pointy-toed cowboy boots, he was almost irresistible, despite his manners.A Harley sealed the deal. He was all her adolescent fantasies come true.And it was time to grow up." - Author: Anne Stuart

Quotes About Nasha

"As attentive readers may have noted, the standard narrative of heterosexual interaction boils down to prostitution: a woman exchanges her sexual services for access to resources. Maybe mythic resonance explains part of the huge box-office appeal of a film like Pretty Woman, where Richard Geres character trades access to his wealth in exchange for what Julia Robertss character has to offer (she plays a hooker with a heart of gold, if you missed it). Please note that what shes got to offer is limited to the aforementioned heart of gold, a smile as big as Texas, a pair of long, lovely legs, and the solemn promise that theyll open only for him from now on. The genius of Pretty Woman lies in making explicit whats been implicit in hundreds of films and books. According to this theory, women have evolved to unthinkingly and unashamedly exchange erotic pleasure for access to a mans wealth, protection, status, and other treasures likely to benefit her and her children." - Author: Christopher Ryan

Quotes About True Detective

"He thought his detective brain as good as the criminals, which was true. But he fully realised the disadvantage. "The criminal is the creative artist; the detective only the critic," he said with a sour smile, and lifted his coffee cup to his lips slowly, and put it down very quickly. He had put salt in it." - Author: G.K. Chesterton

Quotes About Mimpi
