[I Feel As Though, If I Were To Extend My Hand Just A Little Toward The Pool Where The Ideas Ferment, I Could Grab At The Idea And Pull It Out Of The Pool And Onto The Floor Where Ideas Must Stand Before The Jury Of The Brain. There, It Must Present Itself, Still From The Pool, And A Bit Shivery Because New Ideas Are Not Given A Towel To Dry Off With, Towels Being Reserved For Proven Theories; New Ideas Are Simply Pulled And Stood Up, And Asked To Explain Themselves - Not A Very Pleasant Thing Really, Which Is Why So Many People Go Into The Room Where The Pool Is. The Exercise Is Exhausting Not To Mention A Bit Difficult To Watch, If You Are At All A Sympathetic Creature. What Was My Idea, Anyways?]

Quotes About Dirty Mouths

"Lord, how unutterably disgusting life is! What dirty tricks it plays us, one moment free; the next, this. Here we are among the breadcrumbs and the stained napkins again. That knife is already congealing with grease. Disorder, sordidity and corruption surrounds us. We have been taking into our mouths the bodies of dead birds. It is with these greasy crumbs, slobbering over napkins, and little corpses that we have to build. Always it begins again; always there is the enemy; eyes meeting ours; fingers twitching ours; the effort waiting. Call the waiter. Pay the bill. We must pull ourselves up out of the chairs. We must find our coats. We must go. Must, must, must — detestable word. Once more, I who had thought myself immune, who had said, "Now I am rid of all that", find that the wave has tumbled me over, head over heels, scattering my possessions, leaving me to collect, to assemble, to head together, to summon my forces, rise and confront the enemy." - Author: Virginia Woolf

Quotes About Benz

"Bármilyen idiótának, aki azt kérdezi: „Feminista vagy? Akkor elégeted a melltartóidat, mi? HE? Melltartókat égetsz, te feminista?" – szép nyugodtan így kell válaszolni: „Ostoba. OSTOBA!

There is nothing else." - Author: V.S. Ramachandran
