Quotes About Marly

"Bridget cried for the leavers and the left. For the people, like herself, grimly forsaking what few precious gifts they would ever get. She cried for Bailey, for Tibby, for the resolute clump of cells making headway in her uterus, and for Marly, her poor, sad mother, whod missed everything." - Author: Ann Brashares

Quotes About Credo

"Il problema principale era che non mi piace la gente, e in particolare non mi piacciono i miei coetanei, cioè quelli che popolano luniversità. Ci andrei volentieri se ci studiassero persone più grandi. Non sono uno psicopatico (anche se non credo che gli psicopatici si definiscano tali), è solo che non mi diverto a stare con gli altri. Le persone, almeno per quel che ho visto fino adesso, non si dicono granché di interessante. Parlano delle loro vite, e le loro vite non sono interessanti. Quindi mi secco. Secondo me bisognerebbe parlare solo se si ha da dire qualcosa di interessante o di necessario." - Author: Peter Cameron

Quotes About Impractical

"Mr. Malfoy is new to the business of having ideas, and so when he has one, he becomes proud of himself for having it. He has not yet had enough ideas to unflinchingly discard those that are beautiful in some aspects and impractical in others; he has not yet acquired confidence in his own ability to think of better ideas as he requires them. What we are seeing here is not Mr. Malfoys best idea, I fear, but rather his only idea." - Author: Eliezer Yudkowsky

Quotes About Talleyrand

"Yes, but bad language is bound to make in addition bad government, whereas good language is not bound to make bad government. That again is clear Confucius: if the orders arent clear they cant be carried out. Lloyd Georges laws were such a mess, the lawyers never knew what they meant. And Talleyrand proclaimed that they changed the meaning of words between one conference and another. The means of communication breaks down, and that of course is what we are suffering now. We are enduring the drive to work on the subconscious without appealing to the reason. They repeat a trade name with the music a few times, and then repeat the music without it so that the music will give you the name. I think of the assault. We suffer from the use of language to conceal thought and to withhold all vital and direct answers. There is the definite use of propaganda, forensic language, merely to conceal and mislead." - Author: Ezra Pound

Quotes About Art Shows
