Quotes About Vidas

"Verence no tuvo miedo (...) Eso se debía en parte a que no tenía imaginación, y en gran medida a que era uno de esos escasos indivíduos centrados en el momento. La mayoría de la gente no lo es. Viven sus vidas como una especie de borrón en torno al punto donde se encuentra su cuerpo, anticipándose al futuro o aferrándose al pasado. Suelen estar tan preocupados con lo que les sucederá que solo averiguan lo que les sucede cuando ya ha sucedido. Así son la mayor parte de las personas. Aprenden a tener miedo porque no saben lo que va a suceder. Y ya les está sucediendo. Pero Verence había vivido siempre el presente. Al menos hasta ahora, claro." - Author: Terry Pratchett

Quotes About Man And Nature

"In my own life, I think legends of supernatural, mythic things are really just a manifestation of the collective unconscious. So I dont really get freaked out.

Quotes About Feeling Deeply

"My mind is, to use a disgustingly obvious simile, like a wastebasket full of waste paper; bits of hair, and rotting apple cores. I am feeling depressed from being exposed to so many lives, so many of them exciting, new to my realm of experience. I pass by people, grazing them on the edges, and it bothers me. Ive got to admire someone to really like them deeply - to value them as friends. It was that way with Ann: I admired her wit, her riding, her vivacious imagination - all the things that made her the way she was. I could lean on her as she leaned on me. Together the two of us could face anything - only not quite anything, or she would be back. And so she is gone, and I am bereft for awhile. But what do I know of sorrow?" - Author: Sylvia Plath
