Quotes About Fence Sitters

"Moderation? Its mediocrity, fear, and confusion in disguise. Its the devils dilemma. Its neither doing nor not doing. Its the wobbling compromise that makes no one happy. Moderation is for the bland, the apologetic, for the fence-sitters of the world afraid to take a stand. Its for those afraid to laugh or cry, for those afraid to live or die. Moderation...is lukewarm tea, the devils own brew." - Author: Dan Millman

Quotes About Becky Sharp

"I refused to have bookshelves, horrified that Id feel compelled to organise the books in some regimented system - Dewey or alphabetical or worse - and so the books lived in stacks, some as tall as me, in the most subjective order I could invent.Thus Nabokov lived between Gogol and Hemingway, cradled between the Old World and the New; Willa Cather and Theodore Dreiser and Thomas Hardy were stacked together not for their chronological proximity but because they all reminded me in some way of dryness (though in Dreisers case I think I was focused mainly on his name): George Eliot and Jane Austen shared a stack with Thackeray because all I had of his was Vanity Fair, and I thought that Becky Sharp would do best in the presence of ladies (and deep down I worried that if I put her next to David Copperfield, she might seduce him)." - Author: Rebecca Makkai

Quotes About Art Everywhere

"...Or we can blaze! Become legends in our own time, strike fear in the heart of mediocre talent everywhere! We can scald dogs, put records out of reach! Make the stands gasp as we blow into an unearthly kick from three hundred yards out! We can become Gods own messengers delivering the dreaded scrolls! We can race dark Satan himself till he wheezes fiery cinders down the back straightaway....Theyll speak our names in hushed tones, those guys are animals theyll say! We can lay it on the line, bust a gut, show them a clean pair of heels. We can sprint the turn on a spring breeze and feel the winter leave our feet! We can, by God, let our demons loose and just wail on!" - Author: John L. Parker Jr.
