John Le Carre Quotes

"Western teaching institutions that refuse to acknowledge todays taboos are by definition subversive. Tell the new zealots of Washington that in the making of Israel a monstrous human crime was committed and they will call you an anti-Semite. Tell them there was no Garden of Creation and they will call you a dangerous cynic. Tell them God is what man invented to compensate for his ignorance of science and they will call you a Communist."

Quotes About Simple Attire

"Summer sticks to her skirt sumptuously, in the shiny gray fabric hanging loosely from her curves. Her chestnut eyes, apparently hidden from strangers; her simple but graceful face, unpainted by Madison Avenue; and her straight black hair, parted down the middle without ego, all suggest a minimalist - almost pastoral - beauty that is oddly discordant with her fashionable attire, comfortable indifference to the crowds, and quasi-attentive perusal of the Time magazine unfolded over her hand." - Author: Zack Love

Quotes About Smart Decisions

"The only way to guarantee smart decisions, Ike believed, was to bring all the responsible parties together and have them fight it out. "I do not believe in bringing them in one at a time and therefore being more impressed by the most recent one you hear," he said later. "You must get courageous men, men of strong views and let them debate and argue with each other." - Author: Nancy Gibbs

Quotes About Secretaries Day

"Thirty- eight years old and he was finished. He sipped at the coffee and remembered where he had gone wrong -- or right. Hed simply gotten tired -- of the insurance game, of the small offices and high glass partitions, the clients; hed simply gotten tired of cheating on his wife, of squeezing secretaries in the elevator and in the halls;hed gotten tired of Christmas parties and New Years parties and birthdays, and payments on new cars and furniture payments -- light, gas, water -- the whole bleeding complex of necessities.Hed gotten tired and quit, thats all. The divorce came soon enough and the drinking came soon enough, and suddenly he was out of it. He had nothing, and he found out that having nothing was difficult too. It was another type of burden. If only there were some gentler road in between. It seemed a man only had two choices -- get in on the hustle or be a bum." - Author: Charles Bukowski

Quotes About Principio

"No lo entiendes, Urania. Hay muchas cosas de la Era que has llegado a entender; algunas, al principio, te parecían inextricables, pero, a fuerza de leer, escuchar, cotejar y pensar, has llegado a comprender que tantos millones de personas, machacadas por la propaganda, por la falta de información, embrutecidas por el adoctrinamiento, el aislamiento, despojadas de libre albedrío, de voluntad y hasta de curiosidad por el miedo y la práctica del servilismo y la obsecuencia, llegaran a divinizar a Trujillo. No solo a temerlo, sino a quererlo, como llegan a querer los hijos a los padres autoritarios, a convencerse de que azotes y castigos son por su bien." - Author: Mario Vargas Llosa

Quotes About Vengeance And Justice

"AGAMEMNON: I will not slay my children, nor shall thy interests be prospered by justice in thy vengeance for a worthless wife, while I am left wasting, night and day, in sorrow for what I did to one of my own flesh and blood, contrary to all law and justice." - Author: Euripides

Quotes About Ubi

"Tenemos miedos. Todos tenemos miedos, aunque lo bueno de esta vida es que casi nadie nos pregunta cuáles son los nuestros. Los intuyen, los huele, se encuentran con ellos en un día en un aeropuerto, en medio de una calle oscura, al subir a un autobús en una ciudad desconocida… Y de repente se dan cuenta de que somos miedosos al volar, a la oscuridad, a que nos roben o a amar y entregar en el sexo parte de nosotros" - Author: Albert Espinosa

Quotes About Medal Of Honor

"[General-in-Chief of the army, Lieutenant General Winfield] Scott not only believed that the idea [for a battlefield decoration, to wit, a Medal of Honor, or valor] smacked of Old World vanity, elitism, and snobbery, he also thought that such an award was entirely unnecessary." - Author: Russell S. Bonds

Quotes About Strangeness

"Yet this distance, all those abysses unbridged and then unbridgeable by radio, television, cheap travel and the rest, was not wholly bad. People knew less of each other, perhaps, but they felt more free of each other, and so were more individual. The entire world was not for them only a push or a switch away. Strangers were strange, and sometimes with an exciting, beautiful strangeness. It may be better for humanity that we should communicate more and more. But I am a heretic, I think our ancestors isolation was like the greater space they enjoyed: it can only be envied. The world is only too literally too much with us now." - Author: John Fowles

Quotes About Treated Like Crap

"Look I have somewhere I have to be and I dont particularly love that I have to go, but you freaking out and making a scene is not going to do anything other than piss me off. I hope you had a good time last night and you can leave your number but we both know the chances of me calling you are slim to none. If you dont want to be treated like crap maybe you should stop going home with drunken dudes you dont know. Trust me were really only after one thing and the next morning all we really want is for you to go quietly away. I have a headache and I feel like Im going to hurl, plus I have to spend the next hour in a car with someone that will be silently loathing me and joyously plotting my death so really can we just save the histrionics and get a move on it?" - Author: Jay Crownover

Quotes About Intimacy With Jesus

"When you weep, Jesus weeps with you. And together you enter into the dance of tears. The dance of tears with Jesus is a precious intimacy He shares only with those who have known deep suffering. In the dance of tears, Jesus shares your pain. He carries your deep sorrows in His everlasting arms. And He ultimately turns your mourning into dancing. He revives and saves your crushed spirit. What a blessed comfort in our deepest darkness to know the One who shares the depth of every pain and loss, every joy and gladness. Jesus, He is the One." - Author: Catherine Martin
