"Very often I suspend my musical sensibilities to enjoy music as a fan."

Eliza Lynn Linton Quotes

"Progress had not invaded, science had not enlightened, the little hamlet of Pieuvrot, in Brittany. They were a simple, ignorant, superstitious set who lived there, and the luxuries of civilization were known to them as little as its learning. They toiled hard all the week on the ungrateful soil that yielded them but a bare subsistence in return; they went regularly to mass in the little rock-set chapel on Sundays and saints days; believed implicitly all that monsieur le cure said to them, and many things which he did not say; and they took all the unknown, not as magnificent but as diabolical"

Lynn Nottage Quotes

"If you lead with the anger, it will turn off the audience. And what I want is the audience to engage with the material and to listen and then to ask questions. I think that Ruined was very successful at doing that."

James Meek Quotes

"Anna woke with the wonderful feeling bad sleepers have when they know they have slept well. As if they have stolen something and got away with it. At these times the memories of what led up to such deep sleep keep their distance for a few seconds and those few seconds are perhaps the only time the world can ever be said to show mercy."

A J Cook Quotes

"A lot of times you have to dip into the independent world to find the really great projects and the really great scripts. Theyre out there - you just have to search hard."

Paul Griffin Quotes

"I stole looks. First was her hair, long and loopy and pulled back. Second, she has the prettiest face, oopen-like and up-looking. Third time I looked she was studying that satellite and I saw her eyes, deep brown, almost black. She has these little scars on her chin. I like that. When a lady isnt perfect, shes a lot more perfect, I believe. - Mack"

Quotes About Treat Your Girl Right

"If youve treated your girlfriend without respect, taken advantage of her, or cheated on her, your actions have taught her that she has no value. Needless to say, this is a serious, serious injury. If you dont try to make it right, she might start to believe the lie youve told her and spend the rest of her life thinking she deserves poor treatment." - Author: Josh Shipp

Quotes About Dramatic Person

"[W]hile the use of non-lethal weapons such as tasers and LEDIs may not necessarily reduce the number of civilian casualties, they have been largely accepted as the humane alternative to deadly force because they make the use of force appear far less dramatic and violent than it has in the past.Contrast, for instance, the image of police officers beating Rodney King with billy clubs as opposed to police officers continually shocking a person with a taser. Both are severe forms of abuse. However, because the act of pushing a button is far less dramatic and visually arresting than swinging a billy club, it can come across as much more humane to the general public. This, of course, draws much less media coverage and, thus, less bad public relations for the police." - Author: John W. Whitehead

Quotes About Impian

"Wanita lebih suka mengabdi pada kekinian dan gentar pada ketuaan; mereka dicengkam oleh impian tentang kemudaan yang rapuh itu dan hendak bergayutan abadi pada kemudaan impian itu. Umur sungguh aniaya bagi wanita." - Author: Pramoedya Ananta Toer

Quotes About Roman Republic

"Shakespeares ambiguous lubricity in Venus is less disturbing than the bleakly moral emphasis of Lucrece, where virtue is so low-spirited, its exclamation so lachrymose and its justification the nasty realpolitik of Roman Republicanism. The sun has not dried the dew on the grass in Venus, but the ill-lit world of Livys Rome darkens Lucrece. The first poem lives out of doors; the second is in a permanent chiaroscuro." - Author: Peter Porter

Quotes About Grizzly

"I will raise you like my own," I promised the tiny basil pot that day.

Quotes About Achieving Perfection

"The perfect being, huh? There is no such thing as perfect in this world. That may sound cliché, but its the truth. The average person admires perfection and seeks to obtain it. But, whats the point of achieving perfection? There is none. Nothing. Not a single thing. I loathe perfection! If something is perfect, then there is nothing left. There is no room for imagination. No place left for a person to gain additional knowledge or abilities. Do you know what that means? For scientists such as ourselves, perfection only brings despair. It is our job to create things more wonderful than anything before them, but never to obtain perfection. A scientist must be a person who finds ecstasy while suffering from that antimony. In short, the moment that foolishness left your mouth and reached my ears, you had already lost. Of course, thats assuming you are a scientist" - Author: Tite Kubo
