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."

C Day Lewis Quotes

"It is eighteen years ago, almost to the day-A sunny day with the leaves just turning,The touch-lines new-ruled - since I watched you playYour first game of fotball, then, like a satelliteWrenched from its orbit, go drifting awayBehind a scatter of boys. I can seeYou walking away from me towards the schoolwith the pathos of a half-fledged thing set freeInto a wilderness, the gait of oneWho finds no path where the path should be.That hesitant figure, eddying awayLike a winged seed loosened from its parent stem,Has something I never quite grasp to conveyAbout natures give-and-take - the small, the scorchingOrdeals which fire ones irresolute clay.I had worse partings, but none that soGnaws at my mind still. Perhaps it is roughlySaying what God alone could perfectly show-How selfhood begins with a walking away,And love proved in the letting go."

Quotes About Struggling Marriage

"...in response to whatever Alice was struggling with, whatever had caused her to withdraw from him, he had chosen the arms of another woman instead of relying on his own fortitude, as if hed somehow deserved more comfort than Alice herself had been able to give, or not. Which was part of marriage, after all, part of the vows: enduring those times. And this sense of entitlement seemed to him an even greater sin than infidelity." - Author: Adam Ross

Quotes About Staying Cheerful

"Men can imagine their own deaths, they can see them coming, and the mere though of impending death acts like an aphrodisiac. A dog or rabbit doesnt behave like that. Take birds -- in a lean season they cut down on the eggs, or they wont mate at all. They put their energy into staying alive themselves until times get better. But human beings hope they can stick their souls into someone else, some new version of themselves, and live on forever. As a species were doomed by hope, then?You could call it hope. That, or desperation.But were doomed without hope, as well, said Jimmy.Only as individuals, said Crake cheerfully." - Author: Margaret Atwood

Quotes About Facedness

"Culturally, I have always been part of the proletariat. I lived side by side with the sons of glassblowers, fishermen and smugglers. The stories they told were shaper satires about the hypocrisy of authority and the middle classes, the two-facedness of teachers and lawyers and politicians. I was born politicized." - Author: Dario Fo

Quotes About Losers Friends

"PEE-WEE BOXER SURVEYED THE JOBSITE WITH DISGUST. THE FOREMAN was a scumbag. The crew were a bunch of losers. Worst of all, the guy handling the Cat didnt know jack about hydraulic excavators.
