Quotes About Dun

"Pani Dunwiddy była stara i tak też wyglądała. Istniały epoki geologiczne młodsze od pani Dunwiddy. W dzieciństwie Gruby Charlie wyobrażał sobie panią Dunwiddy w Afryce Równikowej, spoglądającą z dezaprobatą przez grube okulary na od niedawna wyprostowanych hominidów. - Tylko nie właźcie mi na podwórko - mówiła świeżo wyewoluowanym i dość nerwowym okazom homo habilis - albo dostaniecie ode mnie pasem w kanał słuchowy." - Author: Neil Gaiman

Quotes About Cruel Rulers

"The revolution goes on; a man does not make the revolution, not a thousand men, not an army and not a party; the revolution comes from the people as they reach toward God, and a little of God is in each person and each will not forget it. This it is the revolution when slaves shake their chains and the revolution when a strong man bends toward a weaker and says, "Here, comrade, is my arm." The revolution goes on and nothing stops it; but because the people are seeking what is good, not what is wicked or powerful or cruel or rich or venal, but simply what is good--because of that the people flounder and feel along one dark road after another. The people no more all-seeing than their rulers once were; it is in intention that they differ." - Author: Howard Fast

Quotes About Oxford City

"Oxford, in those days, was still a city of aquatint. In her spacious and quiet streets men walked and spoke as they had done in Newmans day; her autumnal mists, her grey springtime, and the rare glory of her summer days - such as that day - when the chestnut was in flower and the bells rang out high and clear over her gables and cupolas, exhaled the soft airs of centuries of youth. It was this cloistral hush which gave our laughter its resonance, and carried it still, joyously, over the intervening clamour." - Author: Evelyn Waugh

Quotes About Good Behavior

"And so, he knows. He wants, he needs, to do the immoral, irresponsible thing. He wants to let this boy court his own destruction. He wants to commit that cruelty. Or (kinder, gentler version) he doesnt want to reconfirm his allegiance to the realm of the sensible, all the good people who take responsibility, who go to the right and necessary parties, who sell art made of two-by-fours and carpet remnants. He wants, for at least a little while, to live in that other, darker world - Blakes London, Courbets Paris; raucous, unsanitary places where good behavior was the province of decent, ordinary people who produced no works of genius." - Author: Michael Cunningham
