Christa Wolf Quotes

"Quella fresca domenica daprile in cui lei arrivò, Manfred mostrò alla sua futura moglie labitazione dei suoi genitori.- La bara della mia vita: suddivisa in bara-soggiorno, bara-sala da pranzo, bara-camera da letto e bara-cucina.- Perché? - chiese Rita. Per conto suo, era intimidita da quella strada fuori mano e signorile, da quella villa antica, da quelle stanze pesanti e buie.- Perché qui non è mai accaduto nulla di vivo, - disse lui. - A memoria mia, mai."

Bede Griffiths Quotes

"I was suddenly made aware of another world of beauty and mystery such as I had never imagined to exist, except in poetry. It was as though I had begun to see and smell and hear for the first time. The world appeared to me as Wordsworth describes with "the glory and freshness of a dream." The sight of a wild rosegrowing on a hedge, the scent of lime-tree blossoms caught suddenly as I rode down a hill on a bicycle, came to me like visitations from another world. But it was not only my sensesthat were awakened. I experienced an overwhelming emotionin the presence of nature, especially at evening. It began to have a kind of sacramental character for me. I approached it with a sense of almost religious awe and , in a hush that comes before sunset, I felt again the presence of an almost unfathomable mystery. The song of the birds, the shape of the trees, the colors of the sunset, were so many signs of the presence, which seemed to be drawing me to itself."

George Stephenson Quotes

Quotes About Gods Vengeance

"The Qurān began by criticizing two closely related aspects of that society: the polytheism or multiplicity of gods which was symptomatic of the segmentation of society, and the gross socioeconomic disparities that equally rested on and perpetuated a pernicious divisiveness of mankind. The two are obverse and converse of the same coin: only God can ensure the essential unity of the human race as His creation, His subjects, and those responsible finally to Him alone. The economic disparities were most persistently criticized, because they were the most difficult to remedy and were at the hear of social discord—although tribal rivalries, with their multiple entanglements of alliance, enmity, and vengeance, were no less serious, and the welding of these tribes into a political unity was an imperative need. Certain abuses of girls, orphans, and women, and the institution of slavery demanded desperate reform." - Author: Fazlur Rahman

Quotes About Murasaki

"Maybe Lauras real problem came in admitting this: there was nothing new under the sun. To write a story would be, somehow deep down, to embrace her limits, to admit that, indeed, she would someday die—if not of a worm or a ceiling, then of something else. The very nature of a story admitted this reality. To be a writer was to say, yes, I am just another Murasaki, and it is quite possible that no one will remember my name." - Author: L.L. Barkat

Quotes About Finishing Well

"Like my hero Virginia Woolf, I do lack confidence. I always find that the novel Im finishing, even if its turned out fairly well, is not the novel I had in my mind. I think a lot of writers must negotiate this, and if they dont admit it, theyre not being honest." - Author: Michael Cunningham

Quotes About Pennants

"Early June, Providence, Rhode Island, the sun up for almost two hours already, lighting up the pale bay and the smokestacks of the Narragansett Electric factory, rising like the sun on the Brown University seal emblazoned on all the pennants and banners draped up over campus, a sun with a sagacious face, representing knowledge. But this sun--the one over Providence--was doing the metaphorical sun one better, because the founders of the university, in their Baptist pessimism, had chosen to depict the light of knowledge enshrouded by clouds, indicating that ignorance had not yet been dispelled from the human realm, whereas the actual sun was just now fighting its way through cloud cover, sending down splintered beams of light and giving hope to the squadrons of parents, whod been soaked and frozen all weekend, that the unseasonable weather might not ruin the days activities." - Author: Jeffrey Eugenides
