Larry Hagman Quotes

"It always annoys me when stars grumble about fans coming up to them in the street. I love it. These young stars today with all their airs and graces, they need to remember it is an honour and a privilege to make money from acting. How hard is it?"

Werner Von Braun Quotes

"Nature does not know extinction, only transformation"

Marlena De Blasi Quotes

"Living as a couple never means that each gets half. You must take turns at giving more than getting. Its not the same as a bow to the other whether to dine out rather than in, or which one gets massaged that evening with oil of calendula; there are seasons in the life of a couple that function, I think, a little like a night watch. One stands guard, often for a long time, providing the serenity in which the other can work at something. Usually that something is sinewy and full of spines. One goes inside the dark place while the other one stays outside, holding up the moon."

Scott Adams Quotes

"There are very few personal problems that cannot be solved through a suitable application of high explosives."

"When I grow up, maybe I will bethe first one to circle the sea.Or maybe I will just spend all my daydoing everything my way.Maybe I will be in a world of my ownI just hope not alone.I just know that whatever I doI will never, ever forget about you."

Gabrielle Union Quotes

"I realized I had been keeping people around even when deep down I knew they were bad for me. I had overridden myself."

Jean Bethke Elshtain Quotes

"There is much: recognition of the fact that human beings live indeterminate and incomplete lives; recognition of the power exerted over and upon us by our own habits and memories; recognition of the ways in which the world presses in on all of us, for it is an intractable place where many things go awry and go astray, where one may all-too-easily lose ones very self. The epistemological argument is framed by faith, but it stands on its own as an account of willing, nilling, memory, language, signs, affections, delight, the power and the limits of minds and bodies. To the extent that a prideful philosophy refuses to accept these, Augustine would argue, to that extent philosophy hates the human condition itself."

Sara Walter Ellwood Quotes

"First of all, Im not a ‘military type. Second, I never proclaimed to be a gentleman of any kind. I just like the facts straight up. Theres no bullshit to wade through to get to the truth." Dylan"

Jose Maria Merino Quotes

"He clung to the story as to a vow whose abandonment might bring down on his head all kinds of grief and misfortune. He felt very alone, on an interminable day full of evil omens, and the story, though resistant to some of his intentions, was at least a testimony to reality and coherence"

Noam Chomsky Quotes

"Language is a process of free creation; its laws and principles are fixed, but the manner in which the principles of generation are used is free and infinitely varied. Even the interpretation and use of words involves a process of free creation."

Quotes About Staircases

"Thats how it is, Rocamadour: in Paris were like fungus, we grow on the railings of staircases, in dark rooms with greasy smells, where people make love all the time and then fry some eggs and put on Vivaldi records, light cigarettes... and outside there are all sorts of things, the windows open onto the air and it all begins with a sparrow or a gutter, it rains a lot here, rocamadour, much more than in the country, and things get rusty... we dont have many clothes, we get along with so few, a good overcoat, some shoes to keep the rain out, were very dirty, everybody is dirty and good-looking in Paris, Rocamadour, the beds smell of night and deep sleep, dust and books underneath." - Author: Julio Cortázar

Quotes About Wet Leaves

"Blah! Oglivy yells, pushing Emma and me into a pile of wet leaves. We roll around, a red flail of limbs and hysterical laughter. We are all raccoon-drunk on moonlight and bloodshed and the heady, under blossom smell of the forest. I breathe in the sharp odor of cold stars and skunk, thinking, This is the happiest I have ever been. I wish somebody would murder a sheep every night of my life. It feels like we are all embarking on a nightmare together. And will stop it in progress! I think, yanking Emma and Ogli to their feet and hurting towards the lake. We will make sure that the rest of the herd escapes Heimdalls fate, we will...." - Author: Karen Russell

Quotes About Fragments

"And then she closed her eyes, and they could no longer touch her. She no longer embraced what they threatened. Linh was there, and when she reached for his hand, her own had become stiff and brittle, her arms become branches, and from her kees to her groin to her belly to her breasts came a covering, an armor of gnarled bark, and her hair, when she reached for it, had th easpect of leaves. She opened her eyes, alive, and she turned to look deeply and without fear into her boy soldiers face......the leader came and knelt down to look at Helen, and her mouth so full of liquid she gagged, spitting out Buddha and fragments of stone. The man picked up the small medallion and stared at her in wonder." - Author: Tatjana Soli
