Jacques Baudou Quotes

"Sils participent tous deux des littératures de limaginaire, sils ont quelques points communs, comme par exemple leur localisation sur des planètes exotiques et la description de sociétés organisées selon des règles différentes des nôtres, la science-fiction et la fantasy nen sont pas moins de nature très différente. Lune procède dun retour à la pensée magique, elle est donc régressive, tandis que lautre sappuie sur les conquêtes de lintelligence et du savoir. Lune flatte lirrationnel, lautre est un outil de questionnement du monde. La fantasy est une pure littérature dévasion alors que la science-fiction est toujours en prise, même dans ses projections les plus lointaines, avec le réel."

Quotes About Sejarah

"Membaca autobiografi atau memoir seolah-olah terlibat dalam dialog dengan narator yang menjadi jurucakap pengarang: mendengar secara langsung cerita serta pendapat tentang zamannya dengan gaya pengucapan peribadinya. Gaya bahasa dan idiosinkrasi penampilannya menghantar karyanya mirip cereka, tetapi fakta dan kebenaran subjeknya akan menyeretnya menjadi mirip sejarah, dan hakikat inilah yang berkemungkinan melahirkan memoir sebagai wacana intelektual yang artistik; menggugah dan tidak menjemukan." - Author: Baharuddin Zainal

Quotes About Stuff Toys

"The adult world may seem a cold and empty place, with no fairies and no Father Christmas, no Toyland or Narnia, no Happy Hunting Ground where mourned pets go, and no angels - guardian or garden variety. But there are also no devils, no hellfire, no wicked witches, no ghosts, no haunted houses, no daemonic possession, no bogeymen or ogres. Yes, Teddy and Dolly turn out not to be really alive. But there are warm, live, speaking, thinking, adult bedf ellows to hold, and many of us find it a more rewarding kind of love than the childish affection for stuffed toys, however soft and cuddly they may be." - Author: Richard Dawkins

Quotes About Sweeping Under The Rug

"A broom that was almost never used was leaned up against the wall. He took it and started to sweep. Dust flew up his nose. When he had been sweeping for a while he realised he had no dustpan. He swept the pile of dust under the couch. Better to have a little shit in the corners than a clean hell. He flipped through the pages of a porno, put it back. Wound his scarf around his neck until his head felt like it was about to explode, released it. Got up and took a few steps on the rug. Sank to his knees, prayed to god." - Author: John Ajvide Lindqvist
