"Readers find most flashbacksintolerable. Yet a lot of neophyte writers flash back like mad.Why? No one but the Creator of the Universe knows for sure,but there is a likely answer: they find the conflicts in the "now"of the story produce anxiety in themselves."

Sam Claflin Quotes

"In England, when were at drama school, we spend a lot of time learning the craft from playwrights and stage actors, who are very well trained in the basics of acting because they need to get it right the first time - you cant have second or third takes when youre in front of a live audience, unlike in film."

Nura Bazdulj Hubijar Quotes

"Ljubav se ne rađa iz nekog razloga. Ni ne umire s razlogom. Ili te razloge niko ne zna. Nikad ne znamo zašto se rodila. Jednako kao što ne znamo uzrok njene smrti. Prosto, i jedni i drugo se - desi. Ili ne desi. Bez zasluge i bez krivice. Na prvi pogled tako prosto, a ustvari komplikovano, nerazmrsivo."

Sean Hayes Quotes

"They might have a long way to go before truly accepting gay people into their lives, but they have accepted the show into their living rooms each and every week."

MK Hobson Quotes

"Credomancy may seek to exploit the human desire for a tidy narrative where an unblemished romantic hero vanquishes all obstacles, but such ideals have very little to with reality. Reality requites pragmatism and compromise. Men fail. Women fail. There are no heroes, only human beings who somehow find the strength to behave heroically, no matter how many times they have been unable to do so in the past. If you understand that, Miss Edwards - if you truly and deeply understand that, then you will understand the most powerful thing anyone with a heart can understand.""And whats that?" Emily said softly."That love is not enough. But its a start."

Quotes About Damaging Words

"The most self-damaging words in the English language are: try, might, and if. These are words of uncertainty. Will you fail? That is possible. But continue doubting your abilities and youll never succeed." - Author: Dannika Dark

Quotes About Roman Senate

"The unwholesome-looking little moral agent of destruction exulted silently in the possession of personal prestige, keeping in check this man armed with the defensive mandate of a menaced society. More fortunate than Caligula, who wished that the Roman Senate had only one head for the better satisfaction of his cruel lust, he beheld in that one man all the forces he had set at defiance: the force of law, property, oppression, and injustice. He beheld all his enemies and fearlessly confronted them all in a supreme satisfaction of his vanity. They stood perplexed before him as if before a dreadful portent. He gloated inwardly over the chance of this meeting affirming his superiority over all the multitude of mankind." - Author: Joseph Conrad

Quotes About Artistic Inspiration

"We are not built for mountains and dawns and artistic affinities; they are for moments of inspiration, that is all. We are built for the valley, for the ordinary stuff of life, and this is where we have to prove our mettle. A false Christianity takes us up on the mount and we want to stay there. But what about the devil-possessed world? Oh, let it go to hell! We are having a great time up here." - Author: Oswald Chambers

Quotes About Defenselessness

"Maybe it is because I am an old man, but I find, M. Poirot, that there is something about the defenselessness of youth that moves me to tears. Youth is so vulnerable. It is so ruthless - so sure. So generous and so demanding." - Author: Agatha Christie

Quotes About Satin

"En las noches de invierno, mientras hervía la sopa en la chimenea, añoraba el calor de su trastienda, el zumbido del sol en los almendros polvorientos, el pito del tren en el sopor de la siesta, lo mismo que añoraba en Macondo la sopa del invierno de la chimenea, los pregones del vendedor de café y las alondras fugaces de la primavera. Aturdido por dos nostalgias enfrentadas como dos espejos, perdió su maravilloso sentido de la irrealidad, hasta que terminó por recomendarles a todos que se fueran de Macondo, que olvidaron cuanto él les había enseñado del mundo y del corazón humano, que se cagaran de Horacio y que en cualquier lugar en que estuvieran recordaran siempre que el pasado era mentira, que la memoria no tenía caminos de regreso, que toda primavera antigua era irrecuperable, y que el amor más desatinado y tenaz era de todos modos una verdad efímera." - Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez

Quotes About Violence Breeding Violence

"At first I protested and rebelled against poetry. I was about to deny my poetic worlds. I was doing violence to my illusions with analysis, science, and learning Henrys language, entering Henrys world. I wanted to destroy by violence and animalism my tenuous fantasies and illusions and my hypersensitivity. A kind of suicide. The ignominy awakened me. Then June came and answered the cravings of my imagination and saved me. Or perhaps she killed me, for now I am started on a course of madness." - Author: Anaïs Nin

Quotes About Becoming What You Think

"Tris," a low voice says behind me. I dont know why it doesnt startle me. Maybe because I am becoming Dauntless, and mental readiness is something Im supposed to develop. Maybe because his voice is low and smooth and almost soothing. Whatever the reason over my shoulder. Four stands behind me with his gun slung across his back, just like mine. "Yes?" I say. "I came to find out what you think youre doing." "Im seeking higher ground," I say. "I dont think Im doing anything." I see his smile in the dark. "All right. Im coming." I pause a second. He doesnt look at me the way Will, Christina, and Al sometimes do- like I am too small and too weak to be any use, and they pity me for it. But if he insists on coming with me, it is probably because he doubts me." - Author: Veronica Roth

Quotes About Defending Country

"Similarly, establishing a firm timeline for bringing our troops home could accelerate the development of Iraqi security forces and deepen their commitment to defending their own country and their own government." - Author: Peter DeFazio
