Mary Rose OReilley Quotes

"What to wear on a Minnesota farm? The older farmers I know wear brown polyester jumpsuits, like factory workers. The younger ones wear jeans, but the forecast was for ninety-five degrees with heavy humidity. The wardrobe of Quaker ladies in their middle years runs to denim skirts and hiking boots. This outfit had worked fine for me in England. But one of my jobs in Minnesota will be to climb onto the industrial cuisinart in the hay barn and mix fifty-pound bags of nutritional supplement and corn into blades as big as my body. Getting a skirt caught in that thing would be bad news for Betty Crocker."

Most writers who care about what they are writing feel it. When you feel like youre not good enough, write anyway. Its just a pesky bug thats whispering lies. The best way to swat the bug is with your pen."

Quotes About Zajedno

"Postoje tri velike strasti: alkohol, kocka i vlast. Od prve dvije ljudi se nekako mogu izliječiti, od treće nikako. Vlast je i najteži porok. Zbog nje se ubija, zbog nje se gine, zbog nje se gubi ljudski lik. Neodoljiva je kao čarobni kamen, jer pribavlja moć. Ona je duh iz Aladinove lampe, koji služi svakoj budali koja ga drži. Odvojeni, ne predstavljaju ništa; zajedno, kob su ovog svijeta. Poštene i mudre vlasti nema, jer je želja za moći bezgranična. Čovjeka na vlasti podstiču kukavice, bodre laskavci, podržavaju lupeži, i njegova predstava o sebi uvijek je ljepša nego istina." - Author: Meša Selimović

Quotes About Stretching The Mind

"The arts of conversation which his circle cultivated were, in great part, the gossipacious arts: that of making much out of little, of displaying your wit and inventive facility, your ability to amuse, without boring your listeners with too many ideas, or unpleasantly stretching their minds on the rack of an "issue." It was a world which took an intense but mainly anecdotal interest in people, and which was therefore also on its guard against just the same exposure of itself which it so assiduously sought to gain against others." - Author: William H. Gass
