[I Don't Have To Tell You That The One Constant Through All The Years Has Been Baseball. America Has Been Erased Like A Blackboard, Only To Be Rebuilt And Then Erased Again. But Baseball Has Marked Time While America Has Rolled By Like A Procession Of Steamrollers.]

Quotes About Reading Literature

"Sometimes, in the course of my hopeless quest, I would pick up and dip into one of the ordinary books that lay strewn around the castle. Whenever I did, it seemed so insipid and insubstantial that I flew into a rage and hurled it at the wall after reading the first few sentences. I was spoilt for any other form of literature, and the mental torment I endured was comparable to the agony of unrequited love compounded by the withdrawal symptoms associated with a severe addiction." - Author: Walter Moers

Quotes About Humbling Ourselves

Quotes About Living Minimally

"Janna knew - Rikki knew — and I knew, too — that becoming Dr Cameron West wouldnt make me feel a damn bit better about myself than I did about being Citizen West. Citizen West, Citizen Kane, Sugar Ray Robinson, Robinson Crusoe, Robinson miso, miso soup, black bean soup, black sticky soup, black sticky me. Yeah. Inside I was still a fetid and festering corpse covered in sticky blackness, still mired in putrid shame and scorching self-hatred. I could write an 86-page essay comparing the features of Borderline Personality Disorder with those of Dissociative Identity Disorder, but I barely knew what day it was, or even what month, never knew where the car was parked when Dusty would come out of the grocery store, couldnt look in the mirror for fear of what—or whom—Id see. ~ Dr Cameron West describes living with DID whilst studying to be a psychologist." - Author: Cameron West

Quotes About Caboose

"Id rather play a tune on a horn, but Ive always felt that I didnt want to train myself. Because when you get a train, youve got to have an engine and a caboose. I think its better to train the caboose. You train yourself, you strain yourself." - Author: Don Van Vliet

Quotes About Macon Dead

"Everyone will have gone then except us, because were tied to this soil by a roomful of trunks where the household goods and clothing of grandparents are kept, and the canopies that my parenrs horses used when they came to Macondo, fleeing from the war. Weve been sown into this soil by the memory of the remote dead whose bones can no longer be found twenty fathoms under the earth. The trunks have been in the room ever since the last days of the war; and theyll be there this afternoon when we come back from the burial, if that final wind hasnt passed, the one that will sweep away Macondo, its bedrooms full of lizards and its silent people devastated by memories." - Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez

Quotes About Cotidianidad

Quotes About Not Blending In

"See now, for a good blade, one that will not betray the man in battle, rods of hard and soft iron must be heated and braided together. Then is the blade folded over and hammered flat again, and maybe yet again, many times for the finest blades... So the hard and soft iron are mingled without blending, before the blade is hammered up to its finished form and tempered, and ground to an edge that shall draw blood from the wind. So comes the pattern, like oil and water that mingle but do not mix. Yet it is the strength of the blade, for without the hard iron the blade would bend in battle, and without the soft iron it would break." - Author: Rosemary Sutcliff
