Rudolf Flesch Quotes

"What are we after when we open one of those books? What is it that makes a classic a classic? ... in old-fashioned terms, the answer is that it wll elevate your spirit. And thats why I cant take much stock in the idea of going through a list of books or covering a fixed number of selections, or anyway striving for the blessed state of having read this, or the other. Having read a book means nothing. Reading a book may be the most tremendous experience of your life; having read it is an item in your memory, part of your receding past... Why we have that odd faith in the magic of having read a book, I dont know. We dont apply the same principle elsewhere: We dont believe in having heard Mendelssohns violin concerto...I say, dont read the classics -- try to discover your own classics; every life has its own."

Quotes About Uto Uto

"Majka se čudi što muškarac namjerava otići tek nakon svađe. Uopće je ne zanima o čemu razgovaraju, govori sama sebi. Zasad se još nitko ne žali. Uto je obraz gospode Erike pogodila i druga pljuska. Nimalo ugodan dodir kože o kožu. Erika tiho cvili da ne probudi susjede. Majka počinje pažljivije osluškivati i razabire da iza vrata sobe taj muškarac njenu kćer degradira u neku vrstu vreće za boksa - nje. Majka ga ljutito upozorava da oštećuje tuđe vlasništvo, naime njeno!" - Author: Elfriede Jelinek

Quotes About Wandering Souls

"You can speak, I said looking directly at him, I needed him to know I wasnt afraid. Id been dealing with wandering souls, which is what I like to think of them as, all my life. They didnt frighten me but I liked to ignore them so they would go away. If they ever thought I could see them, they followed me. He continued to watch me with an amused expression on his face. I noticed his crooked grin produced a single dimple. The dimple didnt seem to fit with his cold, arrogant demeanor. As much as his presence annoyed me, I couldnt help but admit this soul could only be labeled as ridiculously gorgeous. Yes, I speak. Were you expecting me to be mute? I leaned my hip against the desk. Yes, as a matter of fact, I was. Youre the first one who has ever spoken to me. A frown creased his forehead. The first one? He appeared genuinely surprised he wasnt the first dead person I could see. He was definitely the most unique soul Id ever seen. Ignoring a soul who could talk was going to be" - Author: Abbi Glines

Quotes About Lifetime Memories

"Strange memories on this nervous night in Las Vegas. Five years later? Six? It seems like a lifetime, or at least a Main Era—the kind of peak that never comes again. San Francisco in the middle sixties was a very special time and place to be a part of. Maybe it meant something. Maybe not, in the long run . . . but no explanation, no mix of words or music or memories can touch that sense of knowing that you were there and alive in that corner of time and the world. Whatever it meant. . . ." - Author: Hunter S. Thompson

Quotes About Big Bang

"Heisenberg and Bohr and Einstein strike me as being like gifted retriever dogs. Off they go, not just for an afternoon, but for ten years; they come back exhausted and triumphant and drop at your feet... a vole. Its a remarkable thing in its way, a vole—intricate, beautiful really, marvellous. But does it... Does it help? Does it move the matter on?When you ask a question that youd actually like to know the answer to—what was there before the Big Bang, for instance, or what lies beyond the expanding universe, why does life have this inbuilt absurdity, this non sequitur of death—they say that your question cant be answered, because the terms in which youve put it are logically unsound. What you must do, you see, is ask vole questions. Vole is—as we have agreed—the answer; so it follows that your questions must therefore all be vole-related." - Author: Sebastian Faulks

Quotes About Raeder

"I force my eyes upward and look at Mia for the first time. Shes still beautiful. Not in an obvious Vanessa LeGrande or Bryn Shraeder kind of way. In a quiet way thats always been devastating to me. Her hair, long and dark, is down now, swimming damply against her bare shoulders, which are still milky white and covered with the constellation of freckles that I used to kiss. The scar on her left shoulder, the one that used to be an angry red weld is silvery pink now. Almost like the latest rage in tattoo accessories. Almost pretty." - Author: Gayle Forman
