[He Was Weary Of Himself, Of Cold Ideas And Brain Dreams. Life A Poem? Not When You Went About Forever Poetizing About Your Own Life Instead Of Living It. How Innocuous It All Was, And Empty, Empty, Empty! This Chasing After Yourself, Craftily Observing Your Own Tracks--in A Circle, Of Course.This Sham Diving Into The Stream Of Life While All The Time You Sat Angling After Yourself, Fishing Yourself Up In One Curious Disguise Or Another! If He Could Only Be Overwhelmed By Something--life, Love, Passion--so That He Could No Longer Shape It Into Poems, But Had To Let It Shape Him!]

"Poor innocent little lambie," God said, shaking his head. "Telion. I made you people in My Image. I swear, and drink, and have sex. I even burp and fart, but I damn sure dont snore.

Johann Hari Quotes

"This denial is bizarre. Last time Chomsky denied something I attributed to him, it was Chomskys word against mine and there was no way to resolve this argument. This time, however, theres some fairly conclusive evidence. Look at http://blog.zmag.org/ttt/. It describes itself as the official weblog of Professor Noam Chomsky, and it is attached to Z Magazine, for which Chomsky has regularly written for over a decade. It claims Chomsky makes direct blog entries. Yet Chomsky claims he has nothing to with with it. Are we really meant to believe this? If it is true, why does he carry on writing for a magazine that publishes a false blog in his name?"

Quotes About Majority Over Minority

"Unjust laws exist; shall we be content to obey them, or shall we endeavor to amend them, and obey them until we have succeeded, or shall we transgress them at once? Men generally, under such a government as this, think that they ought to wait until they have persuaded the majority to alter them. They think that, if they should resist, the remedy would be worse than the evil. But it is the fault of the government itself that the remedy is worse than the evil. It makes it worse. Why is it not more apt to anticipate and provide for reform? Why does it not cherish its wise minority? Why does it cry and resist before it is hurt? Why does it not encourage its citizens to be on the alert to point out its faults, and do better than it would have them?" - Author: Henry David Thoreau

Quotes About Fragile Life

Quotes About Kitchen Sinks

"Early on, Zinkoffs mother impressed upon her son the etiquette of throwing up: That is, do not throw up at random, but throw up into something, preferably a toilet or bucket. Since toilets or buckets are not always handy, Zinkoff has learned to reach for the nearest container. Thus, at one time or another he has thrown up into soup bowls, flowerpots, wastebaskets, trash bins, shopping bags, winter boots, kitchen sinks and, once, a clowns hat. But never his fathers mailbag." - Author: Jerry Spinelli

Quotes About Racial Equality

"In these downbeat times, we need as much hope and courage as we do vision and analysis; we must accent the best of each other even as we point out the vicious effects of our racial divide and pernicious consequences of our maldistribution of wealth and power. We simply cannot enter the twenty-first century at each others throats, even as we acknowledge the weighty forces of racism, patriarchy, economic inequality, homophobia, and ecological abuse on our necks. We are at a crucial crossroad in the history of this nation--and we either hang together by combating these forces that divide and degrade us or we hang separately. Do we have the intelligence, humor, imagination, courage, tolerance, love, respect, and will to meet the challenge? Time will tell. None of us alone can save the nation or world. But each of us can make a positive difference if we commit ourselves to do so." - Author: Cornel West

Quotes About Coins

"The only shame George Webber felt was that at one time in his life, for however short a period, he broke bread and sat at the same table with any man when the living warmth of friendship was not there; or that he ever traded upon the toil of his brain and the blood of his heart to get the body of a scented whore that might have been better got in a brothel for some greasy coins. This was the only shame he felt. And this shame was so great in him that he wondered if all his life thereafter would be long enough to wash out of his brain and blood the last pollution of its loathsome taint." - Author: Thomas Wolfe

Quotes About Geva

"Ascoltavo la mia prof preferita, quella di lettere. Stava spiegando che non si dice ma però, e neanche ma daltra parte. Sono pleonasmi, allungano il discorso, e continuava a parlare, parlare e io pensavo che aveva ragione, ma però daltra parte contemporaneamente daltronde, per spiegarci di non farla lunga la stava facendo lunghissima, ma però non se ne accorgeva.E ci sono periodi molto maperò nella vita. Il fiume degli eventi ristagna e non si sa quale direzione prenderà, e andiamo alla deriva in acque torbide. Poi lacqua diventa limpida, il torrente scorre, e tutto torna trasparente." - Author: Stefano Benni
