Gail Caldwell Quotes

"The rest of the family tree had a root system soggy with alcohol... One aunt had fallen asleep with her face in the mashed potatoes at Thanksgiving dinner; anothers fondness for Coors was so unwavering that I can still remember the musky smell of the beer and the coldness of the cans. Most of the men drank the way all Texas men drank, or so I believed, which meant that they were tough guys who could hold their liquor until they couldnt anymore--a capacity that often led to some cloudy version of doom, be it financial ruin or suicide or the lesser betrayal of simple estrangement. Both social drinkers, my parents had eluded these tragic endings; in the postwar Texas of suburbs and cocktails, their drinking was routine but undramatic."

Dara Horn Quotes

"Seine eigene Familiengeschichte hatte Daniel Ziskind, Ben und Saras Vater, eins gelehrt, dass die Zeit durch Akte wahrer Güte geschaffen wird. Tage, Stunden und Jahre sind nicht die Zeit, sondern deren Gefäße, und die sind allzu häufig leer. Die Welt steht still, zeitlos und hohl, bis eine besondere Großherzigkeit sie urplötzlich anstößt. Und dann beschert sie uns üppige Jahreszeiten und rauschende Augenblicke rasender Schönheit. Eine einzige schmähliche Tat jedoch, eine einzige nicht gereichte Hand - und die Zeit hört auf."

De Morgan Quotes

His acquaintance, who had so far listened to the explanation with interest, interrupted him and exclaimed, My dear friend, that must be a delusion, what can a circle have to do with the number of people alive at a given time?"

Quotes About Values And Society

"Libraries are like houses of worship: Whether or not you use them yourself, its important to know that they are there. In many ways they define a society and the values of that society.
