[I Had Achieved My Dream, But What Had It Brought? Wealth? I Glanced At My Dress, Worn Too Many Days Now Without Washing, And At The Patched Cloak Bunched Under My Arm. Renown? I'd Been A Celebrity In My Student Days, But Since Then I Might As Well Have Died. Happiness? My Eyes Pricked With Tears. The Day I Received My Degree I Thought My Life Would Be Completely Altered. I Had Entered The Forbidden Land Of My Father. Nothing Would Ever Be The Same. But In Truth Nothing Happened. I Remained Plain Old Agnes White, No Richer Or More Famous Or Happier Than Before.]

Jose Lezama Lima Quotes

"Ángel de la jiribilla, ruega por nosotros. Y sonríe. Obliga a que suceda. Enseña una de tus alas, lee: Realízate, cúmplete, sé anterior a la muerte. Repite: Lo imposible al actuar sobre lo posible, engendra un posible en la infinidad. Ya la imagen ha creado una causalidad, es el alba de la era poética entre nosotros. Ahora ya sabemos que la única certeza se engendra en lo que nos rebasa."

Jonathan Nolan Quotes

"Youre different. Youre more perfect. Time is three things for most people, but for you, for us, just one. A singularity. One moment. This moment. Like youre the center of the clock, the axis on which the hands turn. Time moves about you but never moves you. It has lost its ability to affect you. What is it they say? That time is theft? But not for you. Close your eyes and you can start all over again. Conjure up that necessary emotion, fresh as roses."

Lynn Hersha Quotes

"As Lynn began getting psychologically better, she took me to a variety of sites. She taught me how to read trail markers. In the end, Lynns stories could not be denied. She was not only a victim, she wanted badly to heal. As her experiences were told and worked through, as she slowly began to come to grips with her past, the personalities within her have slowly begun to heal."

Max Scheler Quotes

"Existential envy which is directed against the other persons very nature, is the strongest source of ressentiment. It is as if it whispers continually: "I can forgive everything, but not that you are— that you are what you are—that I am not what you are—indeed that I am not you." This form of envy strips the opponent of his very existence, for this existence as such is felt to be a "pressure," a "reproach," and an unbearable humiliation. In the lives of great men there are always critical periods of instability, in which they alternately envy and try to love those whose merits they cannot but esteem. Only gradually, one of these attitudes will predominate. Here lies the meaning of Goethes reflection that "against anothers great merits, there is no remedy but love."

Quotes About Dave Matthews

"The Dave Matthews Bands "Crash into Me" played over the montage, not that the lyrics had anything to do with the images the song was played over but it was "haunting", it was "moody", it was "summing things up", it gave the footage an "emotional resonance" that I guess we were incapable of capturing ourselves. At first my feelings were basically so what? But then I suggested other music: "Hurt" by Nine Inch Nails, but I was told that the rights were sky-high and that the song was "too ominous" for this sequence; Nada Surfs "Popular" had "too many minor chords", it didnt fit the "mood of the piece," it was – again – "too ominous." When I told them I seriously did not think things could get any more fucking ominous than they already were, I was told, "Things get very much more ominous, Victor," and then I was left alone." - Author: Bret Easton Ellis

Quotes About Capitalism In America

"We must expose to the light of public inquiry those forces which would destroy our country and our way of life. We should pay no attention to the recommendations of men who call the Constitution an eighteenth-century agrarian document-who apologize for capitalism and free enterprise. We should refuse to follow their siren song of increasingly concentrating the powers of government in the chief executive, of delegating American sovereign authority to non-American institutions of the United Nations and pretending that it will bring peace to the world by turning our armed forces over to a United Nations worldwide police force. (Title of Liberty, p. 16.)" - Author: Ezra Taft Benson

Quotes About Diverse Cultures

"In this book, we will naturally be dealing primarily with the manifestations of the third level of immunity. I gather material on the biography of Homo immunologicus, guided by the assumption that this is where to find the stuff from which the forms of anthropotechnics are made. By this I mean the methods of mental and physical practising by which humans from the most diverse cultures have attempted to optimize their cosmic and immunological status in the face of vague risks of living and acute certainties of death. Only when these procedures have been grasped in a broad tableau of human work on oneself can we evaluate the newest experiments in genetic engineering, to which, in the current debate, many have reduced the term anthropotechnics, reintroduced in 1997." - Author: Peter Sloterdijk
