Quotes About Unforeseen Love

"...the secret of the Great Stories is that they have no secrets. The Great Stories are the ones you have heard and want to hear again. The ones you can enter anywhere and inhabit comfortably. They dont deceive you with thrills and trick endings. They dont surprise you with the unforeseen. They are as familiar as the house you live in. Or the smell of your lovers skin. You know how they end, yet you listen as though you dont. In the way that although you know that one day you will die, you live as though you wont. In the Great Stories you know who lives, who dies, who finds love, who doesnt. And yet you want to know again.That is their mystery and their magic." - Author: Arundhati Roy

Quotes About Schools Of Fish

"I swam underwater in a warm blue sea, gliding along a rocky seafloor. Colorful schools of fish scattered before me and dolphins swimming by my side struggled to keep up the pace. Picking up speed, I soared gracefully into the entrance of a sea cave, only to be engulfed by darkness and trapped in a small space. There was a sudden oppressive weight on my chest; I struggled to catch my breath as fear rose in my heart... ~I woke to find the quilt pulled up over my head. Pushing it back, I came face to face with Charlie, sitting squarely on my chest with his eyes closed and paws curled up under his body." - Author: Derrolyn Anderson

Quotes About Rifiuto

"Che differenza cè fra occhi che possiedono uno sguardo e occhi che ne sono sprovvisti? Questa differenza ha un nome: si chiama vita. La vita inizia laddove inizia lo sguardo. [...]Lo sguardo è una scelta. Chi guarda decide di soffermarsi su una determinata cosa e di escludere dunque allattenzione il resto del proprio campo visivo. In questo senso lo sguardo, che è lessenza della vita, è prima di tutto un rifiuto.Vivere vuol dire rifiutare. Chi accetta ogni cosa non è più vivo dellorifizio di un lavandino. Per vivere bisogna essere capaci di non mettere sullo stesso piano, al di sopra di se stessi, la mamma e il soffitto. Bisogna rinunciare a uno dei due e decidersi di interessarsi o alla mamma o al soffitto. Lunica scelta sbagliata è quella di non fare una scelta." - Author: Amélie Nothomb

Quotes About Apartment

"I needed a vacation. I needed 5 women. I needed to get the wax out of my ears. My car needed an oil change. Id failed to file my damned income tax. One of the stems had broken off of my reading glasses. There were ants in my apartment. I needed to get my teeth cleaned. My shoes were run down at the heels. I had insomnia. My auto insurance had expired. I cut myself every time i shaved. I hadnt laughed in 6 years. I tended to worry when there was nothing to worry about. And when there was something to worry about, i got drunk." - Author: Charles Bukowski

Quotes About Theater Production

"D.H. Lawrence had the impression – that psychoanalysis was shutting sexuality up in a bizarre sort of box painted with bourgeois motifs, in a kind of rather repugnant artificial triangle, thereby stifling the whole of sexuality as a production of desire so as to recast it along entirely different lines, making of it a ‘dirty little secret, a dirty little family secret, a private theater rather than the fantastic factory of nature and production" - Author: Gilles Deleuze

Quotes About Bed Weather

"The room I got is best described as being a glorified closet. It was like four times worse than what they gave you here at Burnstone Grove. The twin bed looked like some little kid had died on it. It was made up with these totally sad, urine-yellow sheets, a moth eaten comforter, and a pillow that was about as fluffy as a folded dishrag. The mattress was lumpy and smelled like pets and weather." - Author: Adam Rapp
