Ruth Padel Quotes

"Tragedys language stresses that whatever is within us is obscure, many faceted, impossible to see. Performance gave this question of what is within a physical force. The spectators were far away from the performers, on that hill above the theatre. At the centre of their vision was a small hut, into which they could not see. The physical action presented to their attention was violent but mostly unseen. They inferred it, as they inferred inner movement, from words spoken by figures whose entrances and exits into and out of the visible space patterned the play. They saw its results when that facade opened to reveal a dead body. This genre, with its dialectics of seen and unseen, inside and outside, exit and entrance, was a simultaneously internal and external, intellectual and somatic expression of contemporary questions about the inward sources of harm, knowledge, power, and darkness."

Michael Fish Quotes

"I am sure that if you plant the trees back again, it will do nothing but good."

Hector Berlioz Quotes

"Fresh proof of the risks you run in writing about players, and of the advisability of not standing to leeward of their self-esteem when one has had the misfortune to wound it in the slightest degree. When you criticize a singer, you do not have his colleagues up in arms against you. Indeed, they generally feel that you have not been severe enough. But the virtuoso instrumentalist who belongs to a well-known musical organization always claims that in criticizing him you are insulting the whole institution, and though the contention is absurd he sometimes succeeds in making the other players believe it."

Bentham Quotes

"Bentham was an atheist and in no sense of the word could he be described as a theologian."

Robert Manning Quotes

"Its never been more important for borrowers to arm themselves with knowledge and build sound financial-management skills."

Euclid Quotes

"As to the need of improvement there can be no question whilst the reign of Euclid continues. My own idea of a useful course is to begin with arithmetic, and then not Euclid but algebra. Next, not Euclid, but practical geometry, solid as well as plane; not demonstration, but to make acquaintance. Then not Euclid, but elementary vectors, conjoined with algebra, and applied to geometry. Addition first; then the scalar product. Elementary calculus should go on simultaneously, and come into vector algebraic geometry after a bit. Euclid might be an extra course for learned men, like Homer..."

Brenton Thwaites Quotes

"My long-term plans are just to get as much experience as I can in Australia and try to make my own films."

Dwight L Moody Quotes

"We are told to let our light shine, and if it does, we wont need to tell anybody it does. Lighthouses dont fire cannons to call attention to their shining- they just shine."

"Good people eat all their veggies and all the fruits, but they still have good grades. I call this, Freakonomics."-Adam Pazandak"

Quotes About Alcohol And Drinking

"I know only, like, five Indians in our whole tribe who have never drunk alcohol. And my grandmother was one of them.

Quotes About Madness In Hamlet

"The madness of the eyes is the lure of the abyss. Sirens lurk in the dark depths of the pupils as they lurk at the bottom of the sea, that I know for sure - but I have never encountered them, and I am searching still for the profound and plaintive gazes in whose depths I might be able, like Hamlet redeemed, to drown the Ophelia of my desire." - Author: Jean Lorrain

Quotes About Good Friends And God

"Falling in love, we said; I fell for him. We were falling women. We believed in it, this downward motion: so lovely, like flying, and yet at the same time so dire, so extreme, so unlikely. God is love, they once said, but we reversed that, and love, like heaven, was always just around the corner. The more difficult it was to love the particular man beside us, the more we believed in Love, abstract and total. We were waiting, always, for the incarnation. That word, made flesh.And sometimes it happened, for a time. That kind of love comes and goes and is hard to remember afterwards, like pain. You would look at the man one day and you would think, I loved you, and the tense would be past, and you would be filled with a sense of wonder, because it was such an amazing and precarious and dumb thing to have done; and you would know too why your friends had been evasive about it, at the time.There is a good deal of comfort, now, in remembering this." - Author: Margaret Atwood

Quotes About Footprints On Our Hearts

"Often, moreover, it is...that aspect of our being that society finds eccentric, ridiculous, or disagreeable, that holds our sweet waters, our secret well of happiness, the key to our equanimity in malevolent climes." - Author: Tom Robbins

Quotes About Modal

"Prayers For Rain begins like practically every Cure song, with an introduction thats longer than most Bo Diddley singles. Never mind the omnipresent chill, why does Robert Smith write such interminable intros? I can put on Prayers For Rain, then cook an omelette in the time it takes him to start singing. He seems to have a rule that the creepier the song, the longer the wait before it actually starts. Im not sure if Smith spends the intro time applying eye-liner or manually reducing his serotonin level, but one must endure a lot of doom-filled guitar patterns, cathedral-reverb drums and modal string synth wanderings during the opening of Prayers for Rain." - Author: Tom Reynolds

Quotes About The Caribbean Sea

"The unluckiest of the Caribbeans sick came, in search of cures: a poor woman who, since childhood, had been counting the beats of her heart so long that she had run out of numbers to count; a Jamaican who, because of the tormenting sound the stars made, never slept; a sleepwalker who rose from bed at night, and in sleep undid all the things he had done in waking; and many other ailments too, less serious in nature." - Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez

Quotes About Getting Off The Merry Go Round

"We found Trent and pulled him off the leggy girl. "Trent, its time to get home before your parents realize we snuck out." I said. "What?" he asked confusedly. "Plus the bouncer found out we were sixteen and he does not look happy." Logan added. The girl froze, "Youre sixteen? What the hell. You little perv, youre going to pay for this." Trent sputtered, "What? No." Logan looked at her all doe eyed innocence and said "Sorry Maam, we have to get home now because its past our curfew." Trent stood open mouthed in shock but his eyes were shooting murderous rays. So many death glares, so little time." - Author: Amanda Kelly
