[He Crossed The Stage, Pushed The Bench Back And Sat, Hands Resting On The Keyboard Cover. After A Moment, He Took Off The Cloth, And Uncovered The Keyboard. He Rested His Fingers On The Keys, But Didn't Depress Them, Simply Sitting There For A Moment, In The Dark And Silent Auditorium, And Closed His Eyes. He Belonged Here. Not On A Stage, But With A Piano. It Was The Only Place He Felt Alive. The Groupies, The Concerts, The Strangely Worshipful Perks Of Fame, None Of Them Made Him Feel Complete Like These Moments Alone Did.]

Quotes About Practical Life

"I would have practically done all my films in 3D. There is something that 3D gives to the picture that takes you into another land and you stay there and its a good place to be. (…) Its like seeing a moving sculpture of the actor and its almost like a combination of theater and film combined and it immerses you in the story more. I saw audiences care about the people more. The minute it started people wanted three things: color, sound and depth. You want to recreate life." - Author: Martin Scorsese

Quotes About Winter Coats

"Spring comes to the Australian Alps like an invisible spirit. There is not the tremendous surge of upthrust life that there is in the lowland valleys, and no wild flowers bloom in the snow mountains till the early summer, but there is an immense stirring of excitement. A bright red and blue lowrie flits through the trees; snow thaws, and the streams become full of foaming water; the grey, flattened grass grows upwards again and becomes greener; wild horses start to lose their winter coats and find new energy; wombats sit, round and fat, blinking in the evening sunshine; at night there is the cry of a dingo to its mate." - Author: Elyne Mitchell

Quotes About Economics Subject

"We can act to deal with the consequences of the earthquake and tsunami, but the disaster was only faintly political in the economics and indifference...the relief will be very political, in who gives how much (Bush offering 15 million, then 35 million under pressure, the cost of his inauguration and then 350 million under strong international pressure)...but the event itself transcends politics, the realm of things we cause and can work to prevent. We cannot wish that human beings were not subject to the forces of nature, including the mortality... we cannot wish for the seas to dry up, that the waves grow still, that the tectonic plates ceast to exist, that nature ceases to be beyond our abilities to predict and control... But the terms of that nature include such catastrophe and suffering, which leaves us with sorrow as not a problem to be solved but a fact. And it leaves us with compassion as the work we will never finish" - Author: Rebecca Solnit

Quotes About Loving All Religions

"Nature is what we know. We do not know the gods of religions. And nature is not kind, or merciful, or loving. If God made me — the fabled God of the three qualities of which I spoke: mercy, kindness, love — He also made the fish I catch and eat. And where do His mercy, kindness, and love for that fish come in? No; nature made us — nature did it all — not the gods of the religions.[October 2, 1910, interview in the New York Times Magazine]" - Author: Thomas Edison

I kick myself every time I stopped myself from saying it. And I know you love me and thats all that matters," he said, pulling me close instead of away this time. We stared at the water in a shared silence.My mind wished I could say the same thing, but knowing if I wanted to was the problem. Did I even know how?" - Author: Holly Hood

Quotes About Flying Away Together

"Do not think that time simply flies away. Do not understand "flying" as the only function of time. If time simply flew away, a separation would exist between you and time. So if you understand time as only passing, then you do not understand the time being.   To grasp this truly, every being that exists in the entire world is linked together as moments in time, and at the same time they exist as individual moments of time. Because all moments are the time being, they are your time being." - Author: Ruth Ozeki
