Morarji Desai Quotes

Anthony Bourdain Quotes

"In another telling anomaly of the meat-grinding business, many of the larger slaughterhouses will sell their product only to grinders who agree to not test their product for E. coli contamination--until after its run through a grinder with a whole bunch of other meat from other sources...Its like demanding of a date that she have unprotected sex with four or five other guys immediately before sleeping with you--just so she cant point the finger directly at you should she later test positive for clap."

Quotes About Standing Out

"This might just be two people in a queue, but this has become a mighty battle of wills - a war between all that is right and all that is wrong - and it is I and I alone standing at the gates between one minor slight in the queue-munity, and outright supermarket-based anarchy. In many ways, I am doing this for you." - Author: Danny Wallace

Quotes About Cowardice

"It wasnt courage that motivated this casual, impersonal manner of treating so much pain; it was a special brand of cowardice, a destructive defense mechanism, forcing others to listen to the most horrendous experiences and yet denying them the moment of empathy: dont feel sorry for me; nothing is too big for me to handle. This is nothing, nothing really." - Author: Azar Nafisi

Quotes About Indie Rock Music

"[H]e asked Renee, "What does rock and roll have today that it didnt have in the sixties?" Renee said, "Tits," which in retrospect strikes me as not a bad one-word off-the-dome answer at all. The nineties fad for indie rock overlapped precisely with the nineties fad for feminism. The idea of a pop culture that was pro-girl, or even just not anti-girl -- that was a 1990s mainstream dream, rather than a 1980s or 2000s one, and it was real for a while. Music was not just part of it but leading the way -- hard to believe, hard even to remember. But some of us do." - Author: Rob Sheffield

"Przyjdzie śmierć i będzie miała twoje oczy -ta śmierć, która nam towarzyszyod świtu do zmierzchu, bezsenna,milcząca, jak odwieczne poczucie winylub bezsensowny nałóg. Twoje oczybędą pustym słowem,przemilczanym krzykiem, ciszą.Takimi je widzisz co dzień ranokiedy nad sobą pochylasz sięw lustrze. Kochana nadziejo,tego dnia i my się dowiemyże jesteś życiem i że jesteś niczym.Śmierć ma dla wszystkich spojrzenie.Przyjdzie śmierć i będzie miała twoje oczy.Będzie tak, jak gdybyś porzuciła nałóg,jak gdybyś ujrzała w lustrzepojawienie się martwej twarzy,jak gdybyś słuchała zamkniętych warg.Niemi zstąpimy w topiel." - Author: Cesare Pavese

Quotes About Watershed Moments

"Every life has a watershed moment, an instant when you realize youre about to make a choice that will define everything else you ever do, and that if you choose wrong, there may not be that many things left to choose. Sometimes the wrong choice is the only one that lets you face the end with dignity, grace, and the awareness that youre doing the right thing.Im not sure we can recognize those moments until theyve passed us." - Author: Mira Grant

Quotes About Repeated

"The voice came from the night all around him, in his head and out of it."What do you want? it repeated.He wondered if he dared to turn and look, realised he did not.Well? You come here every night, in a place where the living are not welcome. I have seen you.Why?I wanted to meet you, he said, without looking around. I want to live for ever. His voice crackedas he said it.He had stepped over the precipice. There was no going back. In his imagination, he could alreadyfeel the prick of needle-sharp fangs in his neck, a sharp prelude to eternal life.The sound began. It was low and sad, like the rushing of an underground river. It took him severallong seconds to recognise it as laughter.This is not life, said the voice.It said nothing more, and after a while the young man knew he was alone in the graveyard." - Author: Neil Gaiman

Quotes About Father And Newborn Son

"I got the idea from our familys plant book. The place where we recorded things you cannot trust to memory. The page begins with the persons picture. A photo if we can find it. If not, a sketch or a painting by Peeta. Then, in my most careful handwriting, come all the details it would be a crime to forget. Lady licking Prims cheek. My fathers laugh. Peetas father with the cookies. The colour of Finnicks eyes. What Cinna would do with a length of silk. Boggs reprogramming the Holo. Rue poised on her toes, arms slightly extended, like bird about to take flight. On and on. We seal the pages with salt water and promises to live well to make their deaths count. Haymitch finally joins us, contributing twenty-three years of tributes he was forced to mentor. Additions become smaller. An old memory that surfaces. A late promise preserved between the pages. Strange bits of happiness, like the photo of Finnick and Annies newborn son." - Author: Suzanne Collins
