Elle Lothlorien Quotes

"So you went back to your friends next donkament two weeks later, and this time you just laughed right along when they gave you that framed picture of the poker hands.

And while everyone else was throwing a party, you just sat there acting like a tourist with your kill stack until you were in the money. Those poor dills…they didnt know what hit ‘em, did they?"

Krzysztof Kieslowski Quotes

"Or take this girl, for example. At a meeting just outside Paris, a fifteen-year-old girl came up to me and said that shed been to see [The Double Life of] Véronique. Shed gone once, twice, three times and only wanted to say one thing really - that she realized that there is such a thing as a soul. She hadnt known before, but now she knew that the soul does exist. Theres something very beautiful in that. It was worth making Véronique for that girl. It was worth working for a year, sacrificing all that money, energy, time, patience, torturing yourself, killing yourself, taking thousands of decisions, so that one young girl in Paris should realize that there is such a thing as a soul. Its worth it."

Quotes About Tash

"I noticed Wahids boys, all three thin with dirt-caked faces and short-cropped brown hair under their skull caps, stealing furative glances at my digital wristwatch....I unsnapped the wristwatch and gave it to the youngest of the three boys. He muttered a sheepish "Tashakor.""It tells you the time in any city in the world," I told him. The boys, nodding politely passing the watch between them, taking turns trying it on. But they lost interest and, soon the watch sat abandoned on the straw mat....I understood now why the boys hadnt shown any interest in the watch. They hadnt been staring at the watch at all. Theyd been staring at my food." - Author: Khaled Hosseini

Quotes About Borgias

"Through neglect, ignorance, or inability, the new intellectual Borgias cram hairballs down our throats and refuse us the convulsion that could make us well. They have forgotten, if they ever knew, the ancient knowledge that only by being truly sick can one regain health. Even beasts know when it is good and proper to throw up. Teach me how to be sick then, in the right time and place, so that I may again walk in the fields and with the wise and smiling dogs know enough to chew sweet grass." - Author: Ray Bradbury

How infernally rude of me. Beg pardon, Im sure. Mervyn Bunter: Thats all right, my lord. Lord Peter Wimsey: Thank you. Mervyn Bunter: Yes indeed, I was one of seven. Lord Peter Wimsey: That is pure invention, Bunter, I know better. You are unique. But you were going to tell me about your mater. Mervyn Bunter: Oh yes, my lord. My old mother always used to say that facts are like cows. If you stare them in the face hard enough, and they generally run away. Lord Peter Wimsey: By Jove, thats courageous, Bunter. What a splendid person she must be. Mervyn Bunter: I think so, my lord." - Author: Dorothy L. Sayers
