Keith Kekic Quotes

"These streets belong to us because we decided not to punch the time clock. We decided to see what and f*ck is going on out here when all those other people are going to sleep. So we walk from dusk until dawn and we rule."

"The failure of Socialism since 1945 is that whilst encouraging us all, the creators of wealth, to produce less through strikes, it has caused us all to demand a higher level of our own product."

David Moody Quotes

"Until now weve discriminated against each other according to race, religion, age, gender and just about every other differentiation imaginable. Look around you tonight and youll see that those differences are gone. Now, to put things as simplistically as possible, there is just "us and "them", and it is impossible for us to coexist. We have no alternative but to fight, and we must keep fighting until we have wiped them out."

Quotes About Pollyanna

"If Id found out that Norman Mailer liked me, Id have killed myself. I think he was too hung up. Im glad Kurt Vonnegut didnt like me either. He had problems, terrible problems. He couldnt see the world the way I see it. I suppose Im too much Pollyanna, he was too much Cassandra. Actually I prefer to see myself as the Janus, the two-faced god who is half Pollyanna and half Cassandra, warning of the future and perhaps living too much in the past—a combination of both. But I dont think Im too over optimistic." - Author: Ray Bradbury

Quotes About Being Totally Happy

"So all is not lost I tell myself; therefore nothing being totally lost, nothing is lost. Something like the courage to be happy welled up in me and, though alive, the feeling of being brought back to life. Since leaves may be granted. All that is required is a revolution in our habits, the mind working on itself unceasingly so as to cast itself beyond itself, using its imagination to drag itself towards something it doesnt know how to get to, but this isnt so much to ask. I took the measure of the breadth and solidity of the anguish that had become my inner space of late by comparing it with the sudden feeling of emerging from a pulmonary cave-in and recovering the pleasure of breathing deeply which I didnt know Id lost, sipping the air. All of a sudden I became again. One discovers by breathing that one had stopped breathing. One only discovers ones stopped breathing when one takes the next breath." - Author: Hélène Cixous

Quotes About Good Teachers And Bad Teachers

Quotes About How To Live Life Happy

"Watching the way he treats you made me realize that maybe I had set my sights too low. After chasing someone who didnt give me the time of day… I just see how Vincent anticipates your every desire and tries to make it come true for you. How, when he sees you walk into a room, its like hes transformed into this person who is bigger and better than the one he was just minutes before. I want to be that for someone. I think I deserve it. And Im not going to pine away for a guy who feels that for someone else. So until my own chivalrous knight shows up, Ive decided to live a full life and be happy with my lot." - Author: Amy Plum

Quotes About Shiva

"In my tradition, God revealed Himself in words and lives in stories and, no, you cannot touch or even see Him. The Word, in Judaism, was never made flesh. The closest God came to embodiment was in the Temple in Jerusalem...But the Temple was destroyed. In Judaism, the flesh became words. Words were the traditional refuge of the Jewish people - Yochanan ben Zakkai led a yeshiva, my father became a professor. And little boys, in the Middle Ages, ate cakes with verses inscribed on them, an image I find deeply moving and, somehow, deeply depressing. This might help explain a certain melancholy quality books in general, for all their bright allure, have always had for me. As many times as I went down to my parents library for comfort, I would find myself standing in front of the books and could almost feel them turning back into trees, failing me somehow." - Author: Jonathan Rosen

Quotes About Enjoyment Of Reading

"It is usual to speak in a playfully apologetic tone about ones adult enjoyment of what are called ‘childrens books. I think the convention a silly one. No book is really worth reading at the age of ten which is not equally (and often far more) worth reading at the age of fifty – except, of course, books of information. The only imaginative works we ought to grow out of are those which it would have been better not to have read at all." - Author: C.S. Lewis

Quotes About Rake

"The mind can be our best friend and advocate in getting what we want in life, or it can pull the brakes on and be a nasty little foe – the choice is yours – choose your attitude." - Author: Rachael Bermingham
