Zosia Mamet Quotes

"I think feminisms a bit misinterpreted. It was about casting off all gender roles. Theres nothing wrong with a man holding a door open for a girl. But we sort of threw away all the rules, so everybodys confused. And dating becomes a sloppy, uncomfortable, unpleasant thing."

Roger Ailes Quotes

James Gould Cozzens Quotes

"At Childerstown High School and at college he had never led his class nor taken prizes; but, without being aware that he did, he really blamed this on his failure to work hard, or any harder than he needed to. . . . What he did not know, what Paul Bonbright, among others, showed him, was that those abilities of his that got him, without distinction but also without much exertion, through all previous lessons and examinations, were not first rate abilities handicapped by laziness, but second rate, by no degree of effort or assiduity to be made the equal of abilities like Bonbrights."

Julia Cameron Quotes

"The need to be a great artist makes it hard to be an artist. The need to produce a great work of art makes it hard to produce any art at all."

John P Kotter Quotes

William Edgar Stafford Quotes

John Grierson Quotes

"In fact, the individual outlook becomes less and less valuable and more and more harmful unless it is transmitted into the corporate outlook."

Michael Palin Quotes

Quotes About Summer Boating

"The picture had no flourishes, but she liked its lowness of tone and the atmosphere of summer twilight that pervaded it. It spoke of the kind of personal issue that touched her most nearly; of the choice between objects, subjects, contacts—what might she call them?—of a thin and those of a rich association; of a lonely, studious life in a lovely land; of an old sorrow that sometimes ached to-day; of a feeling of pride that was perhaps exaggerated, but that had an element of nobleness; of a care for beauty and perfection so natural and so cultivated together that the career appeared to stretch beneath it in the disposed vistas and with the ranges of steps and terraces and fountains of a formal Italian garden—allowing only for arid places freshened by the natural dews of a quaint half-anxious, half-helpless fatherhood." - Author: Henry James

Quotes About Uncle Birthday

"How stupid. My mom and dad had lost each other, and for what? So they could fit better at their parents tables at Christmas and Passover? So their brothers and sisters could be comfortable? The families who had worked so hard to tear them apart had gone smugly back to their own lives after it was over. I didnt see any of my grandparents more than once a year. I got colorful birthday cards with twenty-­dollar bills in them from my aunts and uncles on my birthday.Meanwhile, my parents spent their lives so lonely. Dad wandered, seeking home in a mistresss Mimmy-­canted face. Mimmy waited, her lamp trimmed, for a day that never came.Meanwhile, all theyd ever wanted was alive inside the other." - Author: Joshilyn Jackson

Quotes About Adventurous Spirit

"So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more dangerous to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a mans living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun." - Author: Jon Krakauer
