Philippe Djian Quotes

"I turned my back to her. I felt a slight burning on the back of my neck."Listen to me," I went on. "I never was much for fucking around, I never got much out of it. I know that everybody else does it; but its no fun if you just do like everybody else. To tell you the truth, it bores me, It does you good to live according to your ideas, to not betray yourself, not cop out at the last minute just because some girl has a nice ass, or someone offers you a huge check, or because the path of least resistance runs by your front door. It does you good to hang tough. Its good for the soul."I turned around to tell her the Big Secret; "Over Dispersal, I choose Concentration. I have one life—the only thing Im interested in is making it shine."

Quotes About Being Seen And Heard

"I notice I am taking risks with my own security and losing my sensitivity to danger. I dont know it at the time, but the effects of war are reaching into me in unexpected ways, and I am being changed by them. I am surrounded by destruction and the randomness of death, which I cannot fathom. I have felt the closeness of death as tangibly as the whisper of a murderous seducer, and felt the richness, twinged by guilt, of having escaped its grasp. I have seen too often the numb lost look of men consumed by undiluted grief, and heard the howl of children as their mothers are pulled from the rubble of a rocket-blasted home, and I am coming to understand the long dark pain of those who silently endure what first seems unendurable." - Author: Jason Elliot

Quotes About Emotion And Love

"The faculty to think objectively is reason; the emotional attitude behind reason is that of humility. To be objective, to use ones reason, is possible only if one has achieved an attitude of humility, if one has emerged from the dreams of omniscience and omnipotence which one has as a child. Love, being dependent on the relative absence of narcissism, requires the developement of humility, objectivity and reason. I must try to see the difference between my picture of a person and his behavior, as it is narcissistically distorted, and the persons reality as it exists regardless of my interests, needs and fears." - Author: Erich Fromm

"You need this---this crutch to compel the great spirits, and they rebel against you, Meklos! They are fighting you and calling the gods displeasure against you. Your life is diminished by the length of this rod!" - Author: Tracy Hickman
