Harry Chandler Quotes

"Take away the newspaper—and this country of ours would become a scene of chaos. Without daily assurance of the exact facts—so far as we are able to know and publish them—the public imagination would run riot. Ten days without the daily newspaper and the strong pressure of worry and fear would throw the people of this country into mob hysteria—feeding upon rumors, alarms, terrified by bugbears and illusions. We have become the watchmen of the night and of a troubled day. . . ."

Pedro Suarez Vertiz Quotes

"Todo cansa en esta vida, hasta la felicidad, me dijeron una vez. Y no lo entendía. Parecía que hablaban mal de la felicidad, pero no era así.Y no lo entendía. Parecía que hablaban mal de la felicidad, pero no era así. Solo era una pequeña hipótesis de que el encanto en la vida es sufrir un poco para regresar a la paz y valorarla. Los momentos de infelicidad son el combustible de la felicidad. En lo personal, me gustan las relaciones largas con todos sus defectos y repentinas pero momentáneas faltas de adrenalina. Al final es lo mejor. El test del tiempo siempre arroja que es mucho más satisfactorio lo que obtienes de relaciones largas robustecidas a causa de los problemas y sus maravillosas reconciliaciones, que lo que te pueden dar los fragmentados y espaciados fogonazos de la soltería."

"Time... is an essential requirement for effective research. An investigator may be given a palace to live in, a perfect laboratory to work in, he may be surrounded by all the conveniences money can provide; but if his time is taken from him he will remain sterile."

"The mind is a powerful thing. It can take you through walls."

Oliver Jeffers Quotes

"In truth, nothing was the same. She forgot about the stars… and taking notice of the sea. She was no longer filled with all the curiosities of the world and didnt take much notice of anything… other than how heavy… and awkward the bottle had become."

Karen MacInerney Quotes

Quotes About The Art Of Weaving

"He played the opening bars again, opening a door for her, inviting her to join. She started quietly, almost voiceless, only a thin string of sound weaving herself into his tune, as if her voice were just another string on the guitar between his fingers. She had to be careful, so no one saw the changes on her face. But she didnt want to be careful; she couldnt be careful. He played and she sang to him, and inside her more and more blocks of ice began to melt, cracking and falling into the frozen sea between them. She sang of all the things that were happening to her and him, the world that collapsed over both of them, the things that might be in store, if only they dared to believe it was possible." - Author: David Grossman

Quotes About The Sherman Tank

"These sculptors consituteted a new movement, he claimed. Not for them the bald abstraction of their predecessors. Their creations were rooted in a postwar world of broken buildings and broken people. Their language was one of terror and trepidation. They tore into the human form, flaying it, tearing it limb from limb, discarding what they didnt want. And when they were done, they found themselves presenting to the world an army of creatures—part man, part beast, and sometimes part machine. As one of Harrys teachers at Corsham had said to him: ‘When youve seen the inside of a Sherman tank after a direct hit, it all becomes the same thing." - Author: Mark Mills

Quotes About Lumina

"So many things in this world were cracked and sad, and still a glowing showed through and moments came when everything was lit and love happened. Every tree stood where it belonged, each bird had perfect feathers folded against its tiny body, each holding a heart beating madly. Life was a vibration of light and dark, and love illuminated that life. Then darkness descended and your heart was ripped apart. So that was part of it, a requirement of the miracle. Death stayed, lurking in the shadow of beauty. In the bargain, life both had meaning and had none. So, she kept thinking, what to do? What to do? A pressure in her would not stop asking. There were not many things she could make better, not many things she could change. And yet…and yet…sparks of possibility still shot out. Unasked for, they came and randomly flew up." - Author: Susan Minot
