Kelli Giddish Quotes

"I went down for a week with the Houston Marshals. I didnt know that they hated paperwork as much as I hated it. They loathe it, man. They want to be in their cars catching the bad guys. They dont want to be filling out paperwork about the bad guys, you know, and the ones theyve caught."

Dmitri Shostakovich Quotes

"In response to a plea in early 1941 from his colleague and friend, the writer Marietta Shaginyan, who was newly infatuated with the Piano Quintet and its creator, Mickhail Zoshchenko drafted for her a portrait of the Shostakovich he knew, a deeply complex individual:"It seemed to you that he is "frail, fragile, withdrawn, an infinitely direct, pure child." That is so. But if it were only so, then great art (as with him) would never be obtained. He is exactly what you say he is, plus something else — he is hard, acid, extremely intelligent, strong perhaps, despotic and not altogether good-natured (although cerebrally good-natured).That is the combination in which he must be seen. And then it may be possible to understand his art to some degree.In him, there are great contradictions. In him, one quality obliterates the other. It is conflict in the highest degree. It is almost a catastrophe."Quoted in Laurel Fay: Shostakovich, a Life."

Adolfo Bioy Casares Quotes

"-Ya me estás confundiendo pero sigamos. No bien te mueras vas a encontrarte en un sueño como el de cualquier noche.- Le digo la verdad: eso no me gusta. Pero usted ¿cómo lo sabe?- Habrás oído, quiero creer, que el alma es inmortal. Aunque entierren tu cuerpo el alma seguirá viviendo. Para prepararnos a esa vida soñamos. No busques. No hay otra explicación para los sueños. Son anticipos. Con una diferencia, es claro: Tienen despertar.- Casi nada la diferencia. Le juro que no le miento: lo que usted pinta no me gusta.- No temas. Todo depennde de tu voluntad. El sueño de la muerte no tiene por qué ser una pesadilla.- ¿Puede ser una pesadilla?- ¿Qué otra cosa es el infierno?"

"Patience means accepting that which cannot be changed and facing it with courage, grace, and faith. It means being "willing to submit to all things which the Lord seeth fit to inflict upon [us], even as a child doth submit to his father." Ultimately, patience means being "firm and steadfast, and immovable in keeping the commandments of the Lord" every hour of every day, even when it is hard to do so.

Quotes About Syria And Palestine

"In the long evenings in west Beirut, there was time enough to consider where the core of the tragedy lay. In the age of Assyrians, the Empire of Rome, in the 1860s perhaps? In the french mandate? In Auschwitz? In Palestine? In the rusting front-door keys now buried deep in the rubble of Chatila? In the 1978 Israeli invasion? In the 1982 invasion? Was there a point where one could have said: Stop, beyond this point there is no future? Did I witness the point of no return in 1976? That 12 year-old on the broken office chair in the ruins of the Beirut front line. Now he was in his mid-twenties - if he was still alive - a gunboy, no more. A gunman, no doubt..." - Author: Robert Fisk

Quotes About Adults Lord Of The Flies

"J. R. R. Tolkien, the near-universally-hailed father of modern epic fantasy, crafted his magnum opus The Lord of the Rings to explore the forces of creation as he saw them: God and country, race and class, journeying to war and returning home. Ive heard it said that he was trying to create some kind of original British mythology using the structure of other cultures myths, and maybe that was true. I dont know. What I see, when I read his work, is a man trying desperately to dream.Dreaming is impossible without myths. If we dont have enough myths of our own, well latch onto those of others — even if those myths make us believe terrible or false things about ourselves. Tolkien understood this, I think because its human nature. Call it the superego, call it common sense, call it pragmatism, call it learned helplessness, but the mind craves boundaries. Depending on the myths we believe in, those boundaries can be magnificently vast, or crushingly tight." - Author: N.K. Jemisin

Quotes About Thinking Deeply

"Weve inherited many ideas about writing that emerged in the eighteenth century, especially an interest in literature as both an expression and an exploration of the self. This development — part of what distinguishes the "modern" from the "early modern" — has shaped the work of many of our most celebrated authors, whose personal experiences indelibly and visibly mark their writing. Its fair to say that the fiction and poetry of many of the finest writers of the past century or so — and Im thinking here of Conrad, Proust, Lawrence, Joyce, Woolf, Kafka, Plath, Ellison, Lowell, Sexton, Roth, and Coetzee, to name but a few — have been deeply autobiographical. The link between the life and the work is one of the things were curious about and look for when we pick up the latest book by a favorite author." - Author: James Shapiro
