[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.]

A J Bowen Quotes

"As an actor, the ambition is to play interesting characters. And in the indie genre world, the budgets are low. That allows me, as an actor, not to have a financial value behind my name, to justify me being in these bigger parts for these types of movies."

Frederick Sanger Quotes

"In this atmosphere I soon became interested in nucleic acids."

Henry Moore Quotes

"It is a mistake for a sculptor or a painter to speak or write very often about his job. It releases tension needed for his work."

Gianfranco Ferre Quotes

"As an architect, I learned to think and express myself on flat forms, on paper, and to imagine the contour of the lines of a design."

Melanie Finn Quotes

"This is what you remember about him: not much, but then you have been assiduous in your forgetting. His red sweater, v-neck, cashmere; the clink of ice-cubes in a glass. He is shadow and voice, but you cannot recall his face. He is behind a closed door, in a forbidden room. He is asleep in his armchair, he is asleep in the driveway, asleep in your sandpit, face down, snoring but not harmless, even then. He is shouting, he is whispering, he is close but also remote as if at the end of a long hallway and you cannot hear him. His words never make any sense, he speaks some other language. His hands sometimes spin away from him like windmills, like pinwheels and Catherine wheels, snapping like firecrackers. There must be pain, but you cannot feel it.Your skin bruises like apples."

"The offspring of virtue is perseverance. The fruit and offspring of perseverance is habit and child of habit is character."

King James I Quotes

"I can make a lord, but only God can make a gentleman."

Nancy Ferro Quotes

"We are attempting to build, within our movement, non-exploitative ways of relating to one another based on trust and concern rather than political expediency. We have serious personal/political intentions in breaking down hierarchical and elitist structures, and for experimenting with leaderless groups and collective decision making. In dealing with the media these revolutionary principles and practices are destroyed. The media works to create leaders, it knows no way of relating to us on our own terms. Being interviewed and presented as a leader is a real ego trip--the media brings out the most counter-revolutionary traits in people. Elitism, dissension and division are the ultimate results."

Naoko Takeuchi Quotes

"Fighting evil by moonlight, winning love by daylight, never running from a real fight, she is the one named Sailor Moon!"

Dan Ariely Quotes

"But suppose we are nothing more than the sum of our first, naive, random behaviors. What then?"

Quotes About Education With Meanings

"The 1980s witnessed radical advances in the theorisation of the study of literature in the universities. It had begun in France in the 1960s and it made a large impact on the higher education establishments of Britain and America. New life was breathed into psychoanalytic and Marxist theory, while structuralism gave way to post-structuralism. The stability of the text as a focus of study was challenged by deconstruction, a theory developed by the French philosopher, Jacques Derrida, which represented a complete fracture with the old liberal-formalist mode of reading. Coherence and unity were seen as illusory and readers were liberated to aim at their own meanings. Hardys texts were at the centre of these theoretical movements, including one that came to prominence in the 1980s, feminism." - Author: Geoffrey Harvey

Quotes About Self Disclosure

"The house cleared, I shut myself in, fastened the bolt that none might intrude, and proceeded—not to weep, not to mourn, I was yet too calm for that, but—mechanically to take off the wedding dress, and replace it by the stuff gown I had worn yesterday, as I thought, for the last time. I then sat down: I felt weak and tired. I leaned my arms on a table, and my head dropped on them. And now I thought: till now I had only heard, seen, moved—followed up and down where I was led or dragged—watched event rush on event, disclosure open beyond disclosure: but now, I thought." - Author: Charlotte Brontë

Quotes About Literary Classics

""I always read everything when I was a kid-and I do mean everything, from Nancy Drew to Dickens to my dads John D. MacDonald-but then I went to regular school and the English teachers started telling me to read real books, so I tried. And you know, I kinda went off reading for a while. I had already been reading literary novels and the classics mixed in with whatever else, but-" She waved a hand. "So I went back to reading whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted to-reading had been my greatest pleasure in all the world. I mean I never really watched all that much television, because we were moving around, never really had solid digs until I was thirteen, so reading was everything." - Author: Barbara ONeal

Quotes About Neologism

"The pejorative parigüayo, Watchers agree, is a corruption of the English neologism "party watcher."

Quotes About Something New

"Above all, trust in the slow work of God.We are quite naturally impatient in everything to reach the end without delay.We should like to skip the intermediate stages.We are impatient of being on the way to something unknown, something new.And yet it is the law of all progress that it is made by passing through some stages of instability— and that it may take a very long time.And so I think it is with you; your ideas mature gradually—let them grow, let them shape themselves, without undue haste.Dont try to force them on, as though you could be today what time (that is to say, grace and circumstances acting on your own good will) will make of you tomorrow.Only God could say what this new spirit gradually forming within you will be.Give Our Lord the benefit of believing that his hand is leading you,and accept the anxiety of feeling yourself in suspense and incomplete." - Author: Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
