[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.]

"Sydney, dont leave Adrian because of me.""Its more complicated than that," I said automatically."Its really not," she said. "From everything Ive seen and heard, youre just afraid.

Quotes About Albanian

"People with no experience of life except under communist regimes would tell me that they knew—though they were unsure how—that their life was not ‘natural, just as Winston Smith concludes that life in Airstrip One (the new name for England in 1984) was unnatural. Other ways of life might have their problems, my Albanian and Rumanian friends would say, but theirs was unique in its violation of human nature. Orwells imaginative grasp of what it was like to live under communism seemed to them, as it does to me, to amount to genius." - Author: Theodore Dalrymple
