Jean Arp Quotes

"Soon silence will have passed into legend. Man has turned his back on silence. Day after day he invents machines and devices that increase noise and distract humanity from the essence of life, contemplation, meditation...tooting, howling, screeching, booming, crashing, whistling, grinding, and trilling bolster his ego. His anxiety subsides. His inhuman void spreads monstrously like a gray vegetation."

Quotes About Scouts

"And it was that self-same summer—June 5th, if precision is your watchword—that I first set eyes on a stringy southern hemisphere home-boy, a man-boy, a prankish puck by the name of La Roux (with very bad skin and even worse instincts), who sailed into the slow-beating heart of our half-arsed, high-strung, low-bred family, then casually capsized himself, but left us all drowning (now they dont teach you that at the Sea Scouts, do they?)." - Author: Nicola Barker

Quotes About Money

"Barbara is on what is called the womans trip to the exclusion of almost everything else. When she and Tom and Max and Sharon need money, Barbara will take a part-time job, modeling or teaching kindergarten, but she dislikes earning more than ten or twenty dollars a week. Most of the time she keeps house and bakes. "Doing something that shows your love that way," she says, "is just about the most beautiful thing I know." Whenever I hear about the womans trip, which is often, I think a lot about nothin-says-lovin-like-something-from-the-oven and the Feminine Mystique and how it is possible for people to be the unconscious instruments of values they would strenuously reject on a conscious level, but I do not mention this to Barbara." - Author: Joan Didion

Quotes About Making Days Better

"I used to wish I had an easier life," he mused. "Some families sail through years with nothing touching them. They have no tragedies. They go on about how lucky they are. Yet sometimes it seems to me theyre half alive. When something goes wrong for them, and it does for everyone sooner or later, their trauma is much worse. Theyve had nothing bad happen to them before. In the meantime, they think little problems, like losing a wallet, are big deals. They think its ruined their day. They have no idea what a hard days like. Its going to be incredibly tough for them when they find out."Hed also developed his own version of making the most of every minute. "Through Sam I found out how quickly things can change. Because of him Ive learned to appreciate each moment and try not to hold on to things. Lifes more exciting and intense that way. Its like the yogurt that goes off after three days. It tastes so much better than the stuff that lasts three weeks." - Author: Helen Brown

Quotes About African

"The speaker was good, I liked what he had to say. I had expected a dry recitation on how women should change their gender if they expected to advance in a mans world, since I wasnt about to grow a cock and balls this man gave me hope and inspiration. Women dominated the audience, not surprising since the average African man wouldnt support a speaker preaching gender equality. Africa was a continent with generational precedent for the alpha male, it was part of their culture, learned at an early age. This led to abuse on many levels. Women were expected to do the physical work, produce male babies and satisfy the sexual urgings of men. Urgings that in other societies would be called rape but in Africa were accepted as common practice. I understood this better than most. Pictures of the Kony boy-soldiers and their adult commander were burned into my memory." - Author: Nick Hahn

Quotes About Irreligion

"The present importance of the Book of Job cannot be expressed adequately even by saying that it is the most interesting of ancient books. We may almost say of the Book of Job that it is the most interesting of modern books. In truth, of course, neither of the two phrases covers the matter, because fundamental human religion and fundamental human irreligion are both at once old and new; philosophy is either eternal or it is not philosophy. The modern habit of saying, This is my opinion, but I may be wrong, is entirely irrational. If I say that it may be wrong I say that is not my opinion. The modern habit of saying Every man has a different philosophy; this is my philosophy and its suits me; the habit of saying this is mere weak-mindedness. A cosmic philosophy is not constructed to fit a man; a cosmic philosophy is constructed to fit a cosmos. A man can no more possess a private religion than he can possess a private sun and moon." - Author: G.K. Chesterton
