Gustav Kafka Quotes

"Its entirely conceivable that lifes splendor surrounds us all, and always in its complete fullness, accessible but veiled, beneath the surface, invisible, far away. But there it lies—not hostile, not reluctant, not deaf. If we call it by the right word, by the right name, then it comes. This is the essence of magic, which doesnt create but calls."

Justin Lee Quotes

Quotes About Bookshelves

"As the shabby section of the audience rose to its feet, waving its hats and food-wrappers, a rich, stale smell wafted through the auditorium. It had something of the fog on the boulevard outside, where the pavements were sticky with rain, but also something more intimate : it suggested old stew and course tobacco, the coat racks and bookshelves of a pawnshop, and damp straw mattresses impregnated with urine and patchouli. It was - as though the set designer had intended some ironical epilogue - the smell of the real Latin Quarter." - Author: Graham Robb

Quotes About Mituri

"A impartasi cu toată făptura ta o credinţă, şi a rămîne în acelaşi timp om întreg — este astăzi un lucru extrem de rar. De la o vreme nu mai întîlnim decît jumătăţi de oameni, sferturi şi cîtimi de oameni. Unii din ei excepţional de bine înzestraţi, alţii înfriguraţi de o mare dorinţă de bine — dar nimeni nu e om întreg, om liber şi viu. Se visează şi se pregătesc societăţi noi, cu rinduieli noi, cu o dreptate mai largă. Cît entuziasm nu se cheltuieşte, cîtă dragoste nu se zbate în aceste pregătiri pentru o lume mai bună! Şi totuşi, cînd te apropii şi cauţi omul întreg, omul liber mai ales, nu găseşti decît fărîmituri." - Author: Mircea Eliade
