[Ich Habe In Diesen Tagen Viel über Liebe Nachgedacht, Und Darüber, Wie Ich Das Wort Hasste Und Es Ständig Wieder Gebrauchte, Und Mir Fällt Ein - Eine Der Vergänglichen Offenbarungen Der Schlaflosigkeit - Dass Wir, Ehe Wir Etwas Lieben, Uns So Etwas Wie Eine Nachbildung Davon Machen Müssen, Ein Erinnerungsgebilde Aus Flüchtigen Eindrücken Und Augenblicken, Das Alsdann Seine äussere, Ziemlich Langweilige Erscheinung Durch Eine Sternbildhafte Verinnerlichung Ersetzt, Phosporeszierend, Bequem Und Tragbar Und Am Ende Unempfindlich Gegen Den Rüden Raubbau Der Wirklichkeit.]

Quotes About Natives

"That Crawford Tilinghast should ever have studied science and philosophy was a mistake. These things should be left to the frigid and impersonal investigator for they offer two equally tragic alternatives to the man of feeling and action; despair, if he fail in his quest, and terrors unutterable and unimaginable if he succeed." - Author: H.P. Lovecraft

Quotes About Ancient India

"When I was a schoolboy in England, the old bound volumes of Kipling in the library had gilt swastikas embossed on their covers. The symbols hooks were left-handed, as opposed to the right-handed ones of the Nazi hakenkreuz, but for a boy growing up after 1945 the shock of encountering the emblem at all was a memorable one. I later learned that in the mid-1930s Kipling had caused this signature to be removed from all his future editions. Having initially sympathized with some of the early European fascist movements, he wanted to express his repudiation of Hitlerism (or the Hun, as he would perhaps have preferred to say), and wanted no part in tainting the ancient Indian rune by association. In its origin it is a Hindu and Jainas symbol for light, and well worth rescuing." - Author: Christopher Hitchens

Quotes About Dying Happily

"Dying is only one thing to be sad over, Mitch. Living unhappily is Something else. So many of the people who came to visit me are unhappy.. Why?...For one thing, the culture we have does not make people feel good about themselves. Were teaching the wrong things. And you have to be strong enough to say if the culture doesnt work, dont buy it. Create your own. Most people cant do it. Theyre more unhappy than me-even in my current condition. I may be dying, but I am surrounded by loving caring souls. How many people can say that?" - Author: Mitch Albom

Quotes About Fairy Tales And Real Life

"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
