Quotes About Scholarly Change

"The decline of sustained close reading of Eliot is also related, ironically, to the emergence of historical scholarship regarding sources and allusions. The major figure here is Grover Smith, who in the midfifties published an encyclopedic study of Eliots sources. 3 The mere existence of Smiths scholarly tome changed the shape of close readings of Eliot. The poets allusions and sources moved to the foreground of concern, and although most readers of Eliots poetry and plays benefited from Smiths work, others found themselves frustrated by the weight of the intellectual backgrounds." - Author: Jewel Spears Brooker

Quotes About Short Defiance

"If you tell me, I will leave you alone," I said. "And if you dont tell me, I am going to grab the nearest ghostwritten James Patterson romance novel and I am going to follow you through this store reading it out loud until you relent. Would you prefer me to read from Daphnes Three Tender Months with Harold or Cindy and Johns House of Everlasting Love? I guarantee, your sanity and your indie street cred wont last a chapter. And they are very, very short chapters." Now I could see the fright beneath the defiance." - Author: David Levithan

Quotes About Leaving For Awhile

"Even if you hadnt entirely deposed (and possibly killed) not one but two governments and destabilized all sorts of political regions you couldnt even pronounce, let alone draft up constitutional monarchies for, even if youd been far more careful about leaving your toys strewn about everywhere when you tire yourself out with anarchy and run on home, Id say you really are the lowest sort." - Author: Catherynne M. Valente

Quotes About Devices

"The so-called consumer society and the politics of corporate capitalism have created a second nature of man which ties him libidinally and aggressively to the commodity form. The need for possessing, consuming, handling and constantly renewing the gadgets, devices, instruments, engines, offered to and imposed upon the people, for using these wares even at the danger of ones own destruction, has become a "biological" need." - Author: Herbert Marcuse

Quotes About Avoiding Conflict

"Athens father taught him to never bare your weapon unless you planned on using it. Drawing steel prematurely negated any chance of avoiding conflict. Master Kallen, one of Athens gruff sword trainers, held a similar belief, though embellished with the poetic grace of a retired soldier. Drawing your sword during the verbal parrying preceding combat was tantamount to telling your opponent to go fuck his mother. At that point the time for talking your way out of the situation stands as much chance of surviving as a snowflake shoved up a fire drakes ass." - Author: Artemas Khan

"Life lies behind us as the quarry from whence we get tiles and copestones for the masonry of to-day. This is the way to learn grammar. Colleges and books only copy the language which the field and the work-yard made." - Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson

Quotes About Hut

"I had been afraid of the primitive, had wanted it broken gently, but here it came on us in a breath, as we stumbled up through the dung and the cramped and stinking huts to our lampless sleeping place among the rats. It was the worst one need fear, and it was bearable because it was inescapable." - Author: Graham Greene

Quotes About Randas

"Ive started dreaming in Spanish, which has never happened before. I wake up feeling different, like something inside me is changing, something chemical and irreversible. Theres a magic here working its way through my veins. Theres something about the vegetation, too, that I respond to instinctively - the stunning bougainvillea, the flamboyants and jacarandas, the orchids growing from the trunks of the mysterious ceiba trees. And I love Havana, its noise and decay and painted ladyness. I could happily sit on one of those wrought-iron balconies for days, or keep my grandmother company on her porch, with its ringside view of the sea. Im afraid to lose all this, to lose Abuela Celia again. But sooner or later Id have to return to New York. I know now its where I belong - not instead of here, but more than here. How can I tell my grandmother this?" - Author: Cristina García
