"A utopia cannot, by definition, include boredom, but the ‘utopia we are living in is boring."

Julie Ann Dawson Quotes

"Ive been told by a few people at conferences I have a rather academic approach to the subject matter that makes it easy for people to ask questions. I think some genre writers feel the need to "sell" or defend what they do, and so when a door opens to discuss their genre, regardless of what that genre is, they tend to get almost pushy. Im comfortable with what I write. It is part of who I am. I dont really need to sell it. But if Im asked, Ill explain it."

Ken Goldstein Quotes

"And Im sure they all played by the rules, just liked I did. By the way, when I got laid off four and a half years ago, the stock of my company was at an all-time high. Our CEO retired. He was paid $70 million. Maybe now that is only worth $30 million. Or maybe in a few years if he plays by the rules it will be worth $130 million. Ill still be worth nothing. And I wont have a home or my children. You see why I wonder about playing by the rules? Because I always do. As a result, youre standing where I sleep."

Christos Yannaras Quotes

"The word God defines a personal relation, not an objective concept. Like the name of the beloved in every love. It does not imply separation and distance. Hearing the beloved name is an immediate awareness, a dimensionless proximity of presence. It is our life wholly transformed into relation."

Mark Abramson Quotes

"We could all use the power of prayer now and then, but it seems to me that the people who are sure they have a direct line to heaven are most often calling collect with bad news."

TS Eliot Quotes

"As she laughed I was aware of becoming involved in her laughter and being part of it, until her teeth were only accidental stars with a talent for squad-drill."

Quotes About Being Freaked Out

"When Mrs. Casnoff saw us, she walked over to us. "Sophie," she said, her voice warmer than Id ever heard it. "Happy birthday. Its good to see you."I actually believed he meant it, which was weird. Weirder still was the smile she gave me as she said, "I was just talking with several of the guests about your decision not to go through with the Removal. Were all so pleased."Great. Nothing better than my superpersonal decision being party chitchat."Well,thats probably a first for you," I tried to joke. When she just looked confused, I clarified. "Being pleased with me."And then she completely freaked me out by laughing. Granted, it was a low, short laugh, but still." - Author: Rachel Hawkins

Quotes About Lavender And Love

"She came upon a bankside of lavender crocuses. The sun was on them for the moment, and they were opened flat, great five-pointed, seven-pointed lilac stars, with burning centres, burning with a strange lavender flame, as she had seen some metal burn lilac-flamed in the laboratory of the hospital at Islington. All down and oak-dry bankside they burned their great exposed stars. And she felt like going down on her knees and bending her forehead to the earth in an oriental submission, they were so royal, so lovely, so supreme. She came again to them in the morning, when the sky was grey, and they were closed, sharp clubs, wonderfully fragile on their stems of sap, among leaves and old grass and wild periwinkle. They had wonderful dark stripes running up their cheeks, the crocuses, like the clear proud stripes on a badgers face, or on some proud cat. She took a handful of the sappy, shut, striped flames. In her room they opened into a grand bowl of lilac fire." - Author: D.H. Lawrence

Quotes About Cecile

"Cecile was teaching in Berkeley and I was [at Livermore]. He probably had, could have had, some influence on Teller, [for] Teller was quite generous in allowing me one whole semester off to be at Berkeley to work on something and also a semester off at the Institute for Advanced Study. Then I won the Gravity Research Foundation first prize." - Author: Bryce S. DeWitt

Quotes About Meats

"A knave; a rascal; an eater of broken meats; abase, proud, shallow, beggarly, three-suited,hundred-pound, filthy, worsted-stocking knave; alily-livered, action-taking knave, a whoreson,glass-gazing, super-serviceable finical rogue;one-trunk-inheriting slave; one that wouldst be abawd, in way of good service, and art nothing butthe composition of a knave, beggar, coward, pandar,and the son and heir of a mongrel bitch: one whom Iwill beat into clamorous whining, if thou deniestthe least syllable of thy addition." - Author: William Shakespeare

Quotes About Poetic Imagery

"Find meaning. Distinguish melancholy from sadness. Go out for a walk. It doesnt have to be a romantic walk in the park, spring at its most spectacular moment, flowers and smells and outstanding poetical imagery smoothly transferring you into another world. It doesnt have to be a walk during which youll have multiple life epiphanies and discover meanings no other brain ever managed to encounter. Do not be afraid of spending quality time by yourself. Find meaning or dont find meaning but steal some time and give it freely and exclusively to your own self. Opt for privacy and solitude. That doesnt make you antisocial or cause you to reject the rest of the world. But you need to breathe. And you need to be." - Author: Albert Camus

Quotes About Intersection

"The Crone, the Reaper... She is the Dark Moon, what you dont see coming at you, what you dont get away with, the wind that whips the spark across the fire line. Chance, you could say, or, whats scarier still: the intersection of chance with choices and actions made before. The brush that is tinder dry from decades of drought, the warming of the earths climate that sends the storms away north, the hole in the ozone layer. Not punishment, not even justice, but consequence." - Author: Starhawk

And yes, to my Little Ones." –From The Legacy Letters–"The Everything and Nothing of Money." - Author: Carew Papritz

Quotes About Qualities Of A Leader
