Quotes About Shouting

"One day in 1948 or 1949, the Brentwood County Mart, a shopping complex in an upscale neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, was the scene of a slight disturbance that carried overtones of the most spectacular upheaval in twientieth-century music. Marta Feuchtwanger, wife of émigré novelist Lion Feuchtwanger, was examining grapefruit in the produce section when she heard a voice shouting German from the far end of the aisle. She looked up to see Arnold Schoenberg, the pioneer of atonal music and the codifier of twelve-tone composition, bearing down on her, with his bald pate and burning eyes. Decades later, in conversation with the writer Lawrence Weschler, Feuchtwanger could recall every detail of the encounter, including the weight of the grapefruit in her hand. "Lies, Frau Marta, lies!" Schoenberg was yelling. "You have to know, I never had syphilis!" - Author: Alex Ross

Quotes About Education And Technology

"In a world where education is predominantly verbal, highly educated people find it all but impossible to pay serious attention to anything but words and notions. There is always money for, there are always doctrines in, the learned foolery of research into what, for scholars, is the all-important problem: Who influenced whom to say what when? Even in this age of technology the verbal humanities are honoured. The non-verbal humanities, the arts of being directly aware of the given facts of our existence, are almost completely ignored." - Author: Aldous Huxley

Quotes About Non Biological Brothers

"Ces dernières siècles, les Européens, ils sont allés un peu partout, ils ont fondé des commerces un peu partout, ils ont volé un peu partout, ils ont creusé un peu partout, ils ont construit un peu partout, ils se sont reproduits un peu partout, ils ont colonisé un peu partout, et maintenant, ils soffusqueraient quon vienne chez eux ? Mais je nen crois pas mes oreilles ! Leur territoire, les Européens, ils sont venus lagrandir chez nous sans vergogne, non ? Ce sont eux qui ont commencé à déplacer les frontières. Maintenant, cest notre tour à nous, va falloir quils shabituent, parce quon va tous venir chez eux, les Africains, les Arabes, les Latinos, les Asiatiques. Moi, à la différence deux, je ne traverse pas la frontière avec des armes, des soldats ou la noble mission de changer leur langue, leurs lois, leur religion." - Author: Éric Emmanuel Schmitt

Quotes About Halcyon

"We shall see. You have been long away from our people. Your skills may have grown rusty." "What skills?" I asked."His sexual ones. That is how we court among our kind," Vlad explained."Oh, well, Im not sure about the charm, Gordane may have to practice on that," I said, making Gordane growl. "But I can vouch for his sexual skills. Hes had plenty of practice." A low growl, two low growls behind me, suddenly made me realize how my words could be taken."I meant plenty of practice on other women," I hastened to add, looking exasperatedly at Gryphon and Halcyon-where the growls were coming from. "He has an entire harem of at least eighty women, for Petes sake." Thankfully the menacing growls subsided." - Author: Sunny

Quotes About Pacific Islands

"The way I figure it, everyone gets a miracle. Like, I will probably never be struck by lightening, or win a Nobel Prize, or become the dictator of a small nation in the Pacific Islands, or contract terminal ear cancer, or spontaneously combust. But if you consider all the unlikely things together, at least one of them will probably happen to each of us. I could have seen it rain frogs. I could have stepped foot on Mars. I could have been eaten by a whale. I could have married the Queen of England or survived months at sea. But my miracle was different. My miracle was this: out of all the houses in all the subdivisions in all of Florida, I ended up living next door to Margo Roth Spiegelman." - Author: John Green

Quotes About Critique

"We cant plead ignorance, only indifference. Those alive today are the generations that came to know better.

We are the ones of whom it will be fairly asked, What did you do when you learned the truth about eating animals?" - Author: Jonathan Safran Foer
