"Every attempt to make war easy and safe will result in humiliation and disaster."

Nigel Kneale Quotes

"Id never seen any television before I started."

Paul De Man Quotes

"The ambivalence of writing is such that it can be considered both an act and an interpretive process that follows after an act with which it cannot coincide. As such, it both affirms and denies its own nature."

Bryant Simon Quotes

"Pretty quickly, I stopped seeing the company as an engine of community. Instead, I saw it as a mythmaker offering only an illusion of belonging and meeting its customers desire for connections in form, maybe, but surely not in substance. Once I came to this conclusion, I started to dig deeper into the companys other promises--great working conditions, musical discovery, fair treatment of farmer, and concern for the environment. Every time I went excavating, the stories turned out to be more complex, more heavily edited, and more ambiguous than I had first thought. Each time, it became clear that Starbucks fulfilled its many promises only in the thinnest, most transitory of ways and that peoples desires went largely unfulfilled."

Rebecca Maizel Quotes

"I believe I met a girl in the rain, who had lost her mothers earrings. And I killed her. Now I stand here in a time I know nothing about. I watched the death of kings far greater than any man living now. And I am still here."

Carmen Jenner Quotes

Joumana Haddad Quotes

"Surviving war is an excellent training process. If it werent so brutal, I d recommend it as an excellent start-up course in life. I feel that over years of endurance, hard work and perseverance of determination and conviction, of claiming our rights to stay alive, to be free and to be ourselves, of fighting the biggest wars as much as the smaller ones, our will can indeed move mountains for us."

Tyler Hough Quotes

"Heisenbergs uncertainty principle states that the mere act of observing something inherently disturbs its state. So Annika perhaps instead of trying to quantify our love, we should accept the warm embrace of its perfection."

Kim Novak Quotes

"So, Hitchcock wouldnt say anything about my work in the movie but, on the other hand, he wouldnt complain, either."

Quotes About 176

"He who wishes to explain Generation must take for his theme the organic body and its constituent parts, and philosophize about them; he must show how these parts originated, and how they came to be in that relation in which they stand to each other. But he who learns to know a thing not only from its phenomena, but also its reasons and causes; and who, therefore, not by the phenomena merely, but by these also, is compelled to say: The thing must be so, and it cannot be otherwise; it is necessarily of such a character; it must have such qualities; it is impossible for it to possess others—understands the thing not only historically but truly philosophically, and he has a philosophic knowledge of it. Our own Theory of Generation is to be such a philosphic comprehension of an organic body, a very different one from one merely historical. (1764)" - Author: Caspar Friedrich Wolff

Quotes About How Art Heals

"How will I survive this missing? How do others do it? People die all the time. Every day. Every hour. There are families all over the world staring at beds that are no longer slept in, shoes that are no longer worn. Families that no longer have to buy a particular cereal, a kind of shampoo. There are people everywhere standing in line at the movies, buying curtains, walking dogs, while inside, their hearts are ripping to shreds. For years. For their whole lives. I dont believe time heals. I dont want it to. If I heal, doesnt that mean Ive accepted the world without her?" - Author: Jandy Nelson

Quotes About Pickups

"But maybe her marriage wasnt a Lexus. Maybe it was a Pinto--one of those cars famous for blowing up when rear-ended. As she waited for the mechanics to fix her car, she walked out the back door to the wrecking yard and through the aisles of totaled cars and pickups, vehicles that other people had decided werent worth fixing. She felt just like them. She felt like that Buick with the drivers-side door so crushed that the driver was undoubtedly hurt, but from the look of the other side, the passenger likely skated through unscathed. She felt like the Saturn with the shattered windshield through which no one could see what lay ahead. It looked as if it had been sandwiched in a multicar pileup. Jill knew exactly how it felt to crash into one thing and then get smashed from behind. She studied that Saturn and wondered whether it would have been salvageable if it had only been rear-ended instead of sandwiched, and she wondered if the same was true about her marriage." - Author: Kaya McLaren

"Much stronger boys in her class soon learned that it could be quite unpleasant to fight with that skinny girl.

She went around with the attitude that she would rather be beaten to death than take any shit." - Author: Stieg Larsson

Quotes About Cather

"Its easy to look back and think how we could make only the good things happen to us, counseled Catherine, still swishing her mop to and fro, spreading dirty water instead of soaking it up. But thats not how we become ourselves. You are mad who you are by the bad stuff, the little things, as much as the great triumphs and big decisions." - Author: Kate Jacobs

Quotes About Black Masculinity
