[He Must Have Given Up On Image Making Because His Eyes Had Failed To See Something They Had Yearned For; His Mind Had Failed To Capture Whatever It Had Hoped, And That Probing Gaze Perhaps Expressed Alarm At The Emptying Of His Vision, At The Dissolution Of The Things See, Observed, Into A Meaningless Vastness.]

Mauricio Lasansky Quotes

"Dignity is not a symbol bestowed on man, nor does the word itself possess force. Mans dignity is a force and the only modus vivendi by which man and his history survive. When mid-twentieth century Germany did not let man live and die with this right, man became an animal. No matter how technologically advanced or sophisticated, when man negates this divine right, he not only becomes self-destructive, but castrates his history and poisons our future. This is what The Nazi Drawings are about."

Helicopters everywhere: their spotlights finding one another like lovers in the Afterlife.And all this through a lens of oleaginous Belfast rain." - Author: Adrian McKinty

Quotes About Envy Me

"No one is adequate to comprehending the misery of my lot! Fate obliges me to be constantly in movement: I am not permitted to pass more than a fortnight in the same place. I have no Friend in the world, and from the restlessness of my destiny I never can acquire one. Fain would I lay down my miserable life, for I envy those who enjoy the quiet of the Grave: But Death eludes me, and flies from my embrace. In vain do I throw myself in the way of danger. I plunge into the Ocean; The Waves throw me back with abhorrence upon the shore: I rush into fire; The flames recoil at my approach: I oppose myself to the fury of Banditti; Their swords become blunted, and break against my breast: The hungry Tiger shudders at my approach, and the Alligator flies from a Monster more horrible than itself. God has set his seal upon me, and all his Creatures respect this fatal mark!" - Author: Matthew Gregory Lewis
