"Until we all start to take responsibility, until we do all we can to improve the character of our communities, well never break the cycle of violence and indifference."

David Thomas Quotes

"Come tutti, convivo con un passato incompiuto. E questo passato incompiuto che mi impedisce di vivere in completa tranquillità. Cerco di vivere meglio che posso tra le gocce acide della malinconia o del risentimento e quelle, più dolci, della quiete. E questo passato incompiuto che fa del mio futuro una cosa sfocata e incerta in cui non proietto nulla. Credo che si cominci a invecchiare il giorno in cui si ha paura di invecchiare. E io non voglio invecchiare, perché non mi aspetto più niente dalla vita. Non dico che non mi capiteranno cose belle e forti, non cè motivo per cui io venga risparmiato, ma non spero più niente. Non ho più quei sogni che mi facevano venire voglia di continuare a vivere per poterli un giorno realizzare. Continuo semplicemente a correre, senza conoscere lesito della corsa. Non so cosa mi aspetta, e non lo voglio sapere."

Quotes About Reaching Climax

"The term - Fairy-Tales is so ironical in itself, when I sometimes sit to write love stories with a happy ending, it usually drags me into a dilemma whether, I should even begin with a love story at first place or not? Because honestly, I havent seen many of them reaching climax, most of them just die out in the mid. Then comes the concept of fairy tales or what we say fiction, where nothing is impossible!But over time, if Ive realized something, it is that theres no such term called fiction when it comes to reality! Its harsh, in-your-face-sarcastic, ironical and highly irrational. You cant expect whats coming up next, and how its going to blow you. In the real life, the entire meaning of fiction ceases to exist. Conclusively, we writers, deal with harsh reality and write lively fictions, this job in itself is so ironical but, thats life..." - Author: Mehek Bassi

Quotes About Preservation Of History

"If New Orleans is not fully in the mainstream of culture, neither is it fully in the mainstream of time. Lacking a well-defined present, it lives somewhere between its past and its future, as if uncertain whether to advance or to retreat. Perhaps it is its perpetual ambivalence that is its secret charm. Somewhere between Preservation Hall and the Superdome, between voodoo and cybernetics, New Orleans listens eagerly to the seductive promises of the future but keeps at least one foot firmly planted in its history, and in the end, conforms, like an artist, not to the world but to its own inner being--ever mindful of its personal style." - Author: Tom Robbins

Quotes About Longer Relationship

"What is terrible is that after every one of the phases of my life is finished, I am left with no more than some banal commonplace that everyone knows: in this case, that womens emotions are still fitted for a kind of society that no longer exists. My deep emotions, my real ones, are to do with my relationship with a man. One man. But I dont live that kind of life, and I know few women who do. So what I feel is irrelevant and silly... I am always coming to the conclusion that my real emotions are foolish. I am always having, as it were, to cancel myself out. I ought to be life a man, caring more for my work than for people; I ought to put my work first, and take men as they come, or find an ordinary comfortable man for bread and butter reasons but I wont do it, I cant be like that." - Author: Doris Lessing
