[Golosh Street Is An Interesting Locality. All The Oddities Of Trade Seemed To Have Found Their Way Thither And Made An Eccentric Mercantile Settlement. There Is A Bird-shop At One Corner. Immediately Opposite Is An Establishment Where They Sell Nothing But Ornaments Made Out Of The Tinted Leaves Of Autumn, Varnished And Gummed Into Various Forms. Further Down Is A Second-hand Book-stall. There Is A Small Chink Between Two Ordinary-sized Houses, In Which A Little Frenchman Makes And Sells Artificial Eyes, Specimens Of Which, Ranged On A Black Velvet Cushion, Stare At You Unwinkingly Through The Window As You Pass, Until You Shudder And Hurry On, Thinking How Awful The World Would Be If Everyone Went About Without Eyelids. Madame Filomel, The Fortune-teller, Lives At No. 12 Golosh Street, Second Storey Front, Pull The Bell On The Left-hand Side. Next Door To Madame Is The Shop Of Herr Hippe, Commonly Called The Wondersmith.("The Wondersmith")]

Howard Marks Quotes

"Expensive illogicalities and inefficiencies do not worry the monsters of American bureaucracy, and the taxpayers are enthusiastic and eager to spend fortunes in the name of fighting crime. Prison places cost the US taxpayer more than university places. The American belief that prisons are the best way to combat crime has led to an incarceration rate that is at least five times that of almost any industrialised nation. Overcrowding is endemic. Conditions are appalling, varying from windowless, sensory-deprived isolation to barren futile brutality."

Kate Braestrup Quotes

"Then light your candles to the living. Say your prayers for the living. Leave the stones where they are, but take your heart with you. Your heart is not a stone. True love demands that, like a bride with her bouquet, you toss your fragile glass heart into the waiting crowd of living hands and trust that they will catch it."

Quotes About Moor House

"When I started to draw, most of my influences were from other painters and illustrators, so I was drawing landscape at second hand, really. The trees were Rackham trees, or trees that I had seen in paintings rather than from my own observation...and I started to feel this was a real lack in my work. Everything was too generalised, and not based on real experience. Then in 1975, after having worked for some years in London as a book cover illustrator mainly, I came down to Devon and stayed with some friends up on the moor. In the course of this one weekend, wandering around the moor, finding rivers and ancient woods, I realised that everything that I would ever want to draw was actually here. There was so much richness in the texture and forms of these fantastic trees...and I decided in the course of that weekend to come and live here. I looked at a couple of houses, found one, and made an offer on it, all in that one weekend!" - Author: Alan Lee

Quotes About Carrington

"Bloomsbury lost Fry, in 1934, and Lytton Strachey before him, in January 1932, to early deaths. The loss of Stracheywas compounded by Carringtons suicide just two months after, in March. Another old friend, Ka Cox, died of a heart attack in 1938. But the death, in 1937, of Woolf s nephew Julian, in the Spanish Civil War, was perhaps thebitterest blow. Vanessa found her sister her only comfort: ‘I couldnt get on at all if it werent for you (VWB2 203). Julian, a radical thinker and aspiring writer, campaigned all his life against war, but he had to be dissuaded by hisfamily from joining the International Brigade to fight Franco. Instead he worked as an ambulance driver, a role that did not prevent his death from shrapnel wounds. Woolf s Three Guineas, she wrote to his mother, waswritten ‘as an argument with him" - Author: Jane Goldman

Quotes About Dreary

"That God should play the tyrant over man is a dismal story of unrelieved oppression; that man should play the tyrant over man is the usual dreary record of human futility; but that man should play the tyrant over God and find him a better man than himself is an astonishing drama indeed." - Author: Dorothy L.

Quotes About Conquering Demons

"Naysayers at their polite best chided the rewilders for romanticizing the past; at their sniping worst, for tempting a Jurassic Park disaster. To these the rewilders quietly voiced a sad and stinging reply. The most dangerous experiment is already underway. The future most to be feared is the one now dictated by the status quo. In vanquishing our most fearsome beasts from the modern world, we have released worse monsters from the compound. They come in disarmingly meek and insidious forms, in chewing plagues of hoofed beasts and sweeping hordes of rats and cats and second-order predators. They come in the form of denuded seascapes and barren forests, ruled by jellyfish and urchins, killer deer and sociopathic monkeys. They come as haunting demons of the human mind. In conquering the fearsome beasts, the conquerors had unwittingly orphaned themselves." - Author: William Stolzenburg
