[I See The Last Two Millennia As Laid Out In Columns, Like A Reverse Ledger Sheet. It's As If I'm Standing At The Top Of The Twenty-first Century Looking Downwards To 2000. Future Centuries Float As A Gauzy Sheet Stretching Over To The Left. I Also See People, Architecture And Events Laid Out Chronologically In The Columns. When I Think Of The Year 1805, I See Trafalgar, Women In The Clothes Of That Era, Famous People Who Lived Then, The Building, Etc. The Sixth To Tenth Centuries Are Very Green, The Middle Ages Are Dark With Vibrant Splashes Of Red And Blue And The Sixteenth And Seventeenth Centuries Are Brown With Rich, Lush Colours In The Furniture And Clothing.]

"I had a high-flying career. Never wanted to get married. All I wanted to do was have some fun."

Vox Day Quotes

"So much enthusiasm about the non-existence of God is somewhat bewildering, as no one appears to be nearly as excited about a similar absence of belief in unicorns, vampires, werewolves, astrology, nation-building, or the Labor Theory of Value. Nor is anyone dedicating much of their time to writing books and giving speeches at universities and conferences with the avowed goal of convincing others not to believe in them either."

Peter Maxwell Davies Quotes

Francois Cluzet Quotes

"I think that in France, we really admire American films, we admire their drive, we admire the modernity and ellipsism in the film and the writing and the style of acting, and we look at them perhaps in a way to see what we can steal from them, too, to make our own films more modern."

Responsibility here is no dictate but all the gravity of love of the neighbour upon which the congenital meaning of that word loverests and which every literary form of its sublimation or profanation(I, je, eu) presupposes." - Author: Erin Moure

Quotes About Being Crossed

"Evidently, evildoing also has a threshold magnitude. Yes, a human being hesitates and bobs back and forth between good and evil all his life. He slips, falls back, clambers up, repents, things begin to darken again. But just so long as the threshold of evildoing is not crossed, the possibility of returning remains, and he himself is still within reach of our hope. But when, through the density of evil actions, the result either of their own extreme danger or of the absoluteness of his power, he suddenly crosses that threshold, he has left humanity behind, and without, perhaps, the possibility of return." - Author: Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
