Tamim Ansary Quotes

"We need solitude, because when were alone, were free from obligations, we dont need to put on a show, and we can hear our own thoughts."

Mikkel Wallentin Quotes

"Narratives are universally used for mediating emotional experiences. The purpose of aesthetic objects has been defined, in part, as the awakening, intensifying, or maintaining of definite emotional states (Lee, 1913: 99–100). When we read or hear stories, we put aside our own goals and plans, and we temporarily replace our own goals and plans with those of the story characters."

Herbert Rosendorfer Quotes

"I said that I have finished telling my story, not that the story is finished. I said before that no story is ever really finished, each one is part of a longer story and consists of smaller stories, some of which are told, others passed over in silence. And whenever you tell any one of the stories, whether you intend it or not, you include the shadow of all the others. The result is that once you have told one story, once you have undone the meshes of the net at one point, you are trapped. You are compelled to go on with the story. And because we ourselves, like all life, are stories, we become the story of the stories."

Quotes About Achieve Your Goal

"If you give orders and explain nothing, you might get obedience, but youll get no creativity. If you tell them your purpose, then when your original plan is shown to be faulty, theyll find another way to achieve your goal.

Quotes About Apple Orchards

"He Looked and smelt like Autumns very brother, his face being sunburnt to wheat-colour, his eyes blue as corn-flowers, his sleeves and leggings dyed with fruit-stains, his hands clammy with the sweet juice of apples, his hat sprinkled with pips, and everywhere about him the sweet atmosphere of cider which at its first return each season has such an indescribable fascination for those who have been born and bred among the orchards." - Author: Thomas Hardy

Quotes About Summer Coming Soon

"Quentin did not answer, staring at the window; then he could not tell if it was the actual window or the windows pale rectangle upon his eyelids, though after a moment it began to emerge. It began to take shape in its same curious, light, gravity-defying attitude--the once-folded sheet out of the wistaria Mississippi summer, the cigar smell, the random blowing of the fireflies. "The South," Shreve said. "The South. Jesus. No wonder you folks all outlive yourselves by years and years and years." It was becoming quite distinct.

Quotes About Organizing Writing

"These days, Ive been trying to classify my thoughts into two categories: "Things I can change," and "Things I cant." It seems to help me sort through what to really stress about. But there I go again, over-planning and over-organizing my over-thinking! I write songs about my adventures and misadventures, most of which concern love. Love is a tricky business. But if it wasnt, I wouldnt be so enthralled with it. Lately Ive come to a wonderful realization that makes me even more fascinated by it: I have no idea what Im doing when it comes to love. No one does! Theres no pattern to it, except that it happens to all of us, of course. I cant plan for it. I cant predict how itll end up. Because love is unpredictable and its frustrating and its tragic and its beautiful. And even though theres no way to feel like Im an expert at it, its worth writing songs about -- more than anything else Ive ever experienced in my life." - Author: Taylor Swift
