David Cutler Quotes

"Traditions that cease to evolve render themselves irrelevant or obsolete. And whats the problem with inventing new performance practices? Are customs being slandered?

Cousins Quotes

"CREATIONThe library is not a shrine for the worship of books. It is not a temple where literary incense must be burned or where ones devotion to the bound book is expressed in ritual. A library, to modify the famous metaphor of Socrates, should be the delivery room for the birth of ideas - a place where history comes to life.— Cited in ALA Bulletin, Oct. 1954, p.475Norman COUSINS (1915- )"

Brigid Lowry Quotes

"Some ideas are not born of logic and good sense. They are made of clouds and cobwebs. They sprout from nowhere and feed on excitement, sprinkled with adventure juice and the sweet flavor of the forbidden. The psyche moves from the realms of the ordinary and takes a delicate step towards the unknown. We know we shouldnt and that is exactly why we do."

Alexandra Kotur Quotes

"I just think this whole thing about not wearing anything twice, I just dont understand it. I think things should be worn. You should bond with your clothing. It should be yours."

Quotes About Being Played By A Guy

"We stay in the game so that we can provide for our family. Thats the smart thing to do. The problem arises when the game is being played with rules the rest of the world doesnt understand.

Quotes About New Friends

"I saw our future together compressed into a moment; our faces changing, desire having to cope and reinvent itself at each new stratum of familiarity; I saw the gradual dissolution of mutual mystery and romance, its succession by friendship and a sort of tranquil and supernatural loyalty; I felt - with great lightness of being - the bearability of the idea of death, if the life preceding it was bloodily commingled (in children) with hers. A humble little truth: build a truly good life and it will reward you with mastery of the fear of death. It was simple. Having committed to the building of a marriage and family, all sorts of truths came forward and offered themselves." - Author: Glen Duncan
