[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.]

Ann Heberlein Quotes

"Idag samlar vi skor och bilar, igår flintyxor. Utan tvivel har arkeologer funnit betydligt fler flintyxor än vad människan rimligtvis behövde. Jag tror att flintyxorna handlar om en längtan, kanske en rädsla. Om jag bara har tillräckligt många flintyxor, eller skor, eller ett nyrenoverat kök så kan inget ont hända. Det är den där dödsångesten igen. Den otäcka insikten att allt, allt, allt är förgängligt. Jag kommer att dö, men mina flintyxor kommer att finnas kvar. (Och de fanns ju kvar, eller hur? Men vad hjälper det?)"

Yo Yo Quotes

"She had been defeated by herself alone, and the sadness of it left a dark shadow in her heart. It further sapped her confidence and left her ever more withdrawn, ever more capable of suppressing her feelings. Like her roughened hands, her sensitivity was slowly being hardened, and she drew relief from the numbness creeping through her."

Alice Henderson Quotes

"Boys", Buffy hissed through clenched teeth, "being quiet is an important part of sneaking.""Oh, sorry", Xander said, reducing his voice to a whisper."Besides, ritual sacrifice is a religious rite", Giles went on quietly. "They wouldnt sacrifice just anyone at random. Its far more likely theyd suspect you of being a Roman spy scouting for the invasion and just outright kill you"."Oh great! Great! Way to be encouraging Giles. And I suppose youll just watch that happen, in your Watchery way."

Alan Hovhaness Quotes

"I did all kinds of things in order to earn a living."

Volkmar Essers Quotes

"If there is some red spot on one of my paintings it is unlikely to be the heart of the work. The painting was done regardless of it. You could remove the red and still the painting would be there. But in Matisses work it is inconceivable that you could remove a spot of red, no matter how small without the entire painting instantly collapsing. Pablo Picasso"

Quotes About Tom Jones

"I look at the books on my library shelves. They certainly seem dormant. But what if the characters are quietly rearranging themselves? What if Emma Woodhouse doesnt learn from her mistakes?
