Anders Nilsen Quotes

"We are sorry about the way things turned out. We gave, in the phrasing of our words if not literally in the words themselves, the false impression that these pages might hold some small fragment, some slight fragrance of a greater truth. That there might be something here to be learned. Before we go any further the author of this cartoon wishes to make an apology. Such an impression was deliberately cultivated. It is a ruse. It is a lie. We are every bit as lost and afraid as children abandoned in a wood: every bit as lost as you."

Quotes About Etienne

"Eau, tu nas ni goût, ni couleur, ni arôme, on ne peut pas te définir, on te goûte sans te connaître. Tu nes pas nécessaire à la vie, tu es la vie ! Tu nous pénètres dun plaisir qui ne sexplique point par le sens. Avec toi rentrent en nous tous les pouvoirs auxquels nous avions renoncé. Par ta grâce, souvrent en nous toutes les sources taries de notre cœur. Tu es la plus grande richesse qui soit au monde, et tu es aussi la plus délicate, toi si pure au ventre de la Terre. On peut mourir sur une source deau magnésienne. On peut mourir à deux pas dun lac deau salée. On peut mourir malgré deux litres de rosée qui retiennent en suspend quelques sels. Tu nacceptes point de mélange, tu ne supportes point laltération, tu es une ombrageuse divinité. Mais tu répands en nous un bonheur infiniment simple." - Author: Antoine de Saint Exupéry

Quotes About Having A Reason To Live

"Wasnt it true, then, that everything in his life from that point on had been a succession of things he hadnt really wanted to do? Taking a hopelessly dull job to prove he could be as responsible as any other family man, moving to an overpriced, genteel apartment to prove his mature belief in the fundamentals of orderliness and good health, having another child to prove that the first one hadnt been a mistake, buying a house in the country because that was the next logical step and he had to prove himself capable of taking it. Proving, proving; and for no other reason than that he was married to a woman who had somehow managed to put him forever on the defensive, who loved him when he was nice, who lived according to what she happened to feel like doing and who might at any time—this was the hell of it—who might at any time of day or night just happen to feel like leaving him. It was as ludicrous and as simple as that." - Author: Richard Yates

Quotes About Utopian

"The great hatred of capitalism in the hearts of the oppressed, ancient and modern, I think, stems not merely from the ensuing vast inequality in wealth, and the often unfair and arbitrary nature of who profits and who suffers, but from the silent acknowledgement that under a free market economy the many victims of the greed of the few are still better off than those under the utopian socialism of the well-intended. It is a hard thing for the poor to acknowledge benefits from their rich moral inferiors who never so intended it. (p.272)" - Author: Victor Davis Hanson

Quotes About Prussic

"I would rather, he said, give a healthy boy or a healthy girl a phial of prussic acid than this novel. (And here let me pause to make Mr. Douglas a sporting offer. I will provide a healthy boy, a phial of prussic acid, and a copy of The Well of Loneliness, and if he keeps his word and gives the boy the prussic acid I undertake to pay all expenses of his defense at the ensuing murder trial and to erect a monument to his memory after he has been hanged.)" - Author: Aldous Huxley
