Robert J Wiersema Quotes

"Nostalgia is, by its very nature, bittersweet, the happiest memories laced with melancholy. Its that combination, that opposition of forces, that makes it so compelling. People, places, events, times: we miss them, and theres a pleasure in the missing and a sadness in the love.The feeling is most acute, sometimes cripplingly so, when we find ourselves longing for the moment were in, the people were actually with.That nameless feeling, that sense of excruciating beauty, of pained happiness, is at the core of "4th of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)."

Quotes About Ill Mannered

"At college, I was told there were four great women novelists in the 19th century – Jane Austen, George Eliot, Charlotte and Emily Brontë. Not one of them led an enviable life – all of them had to sacrifice ludicrously in order to be writers. I wasnt prepared to do that.You could become ill so that you could retreat to the bedroom, avoid your domestic responsibilities and write like Emily Dickinson and Christina Rossetti. You had to forget about writing if you werent prepared to sacrifice any other things you might want from life, like kids or lovers. Its not like that now." - Author: Jeanette Winterson

Quotes About Cornu

"I was hungry when I left Pyongyang. I wasnt hungry just for a bookshop that sold books that werent about Fat Man and Little Boy. I wasnt ravenous just for a newspaper that had no pictures of F.M. and L.B. I wasnt starving just for a TV program or a piece of music or theater or cinema that wasnt cultist and hero-worshiping. I was hungry. I got off the North Korean plane in Shenyang, one of the provincial capitals of Manchuria, and the airport buffet looked like a cornucopia. I fell on the food, only to find that I couldnt do it justice, because my stomach had shrunk. And as a foreign tourist in North Korea, under the care of vigilant minders who wanted me to see only the best, I had enjoyed the finest fare available." - Author: Christopher Hitchens

Quotes About United States Of America

"Respectable opinion would never consider an assessment of the Reagan Doctrine or earlier exercises in terms of their actual human costs, and could not comprehend that such an assessment—which would yield a monstrous toll if accurately conducted on a global scale—might perhaps be a proper task in the United States. At the same level of integrity, disciplined Soviet intellectuals are horrified over real or alleged American crimes, but perceive their own only as benevolent intent gone awry, or errors of an earlier day, now overcome; the comparison is inexact and unfair, since Soviet intellectuals can plead fear as an excuse for their services to state violence." - Author: Noam Chomsky
