[It Made Me Very Sad, That Question. Sad And Defeated. Because I Knew She Knew Why I Was Thinking About That Woman—I Was Thinking About My Own Tendencies Toward Aloneness And I Thought I Could End Up Like That Woman, With A Bird Perhaps, Or A Dog—probably A Dog, I Know Birds Are Supposed To Make Good Pets But I Think There's Something Creepy About Them—but Alone With A Life That Didn't Touch Or Overlap With Anyone Else's, A Sort Of Hermetically Sealed Life.]

"Travel, of course, narrows the mind."

Amadeo Bordiga Quotes

"With the historical radar of Marxs theories, on whose screen observers who have not swallowed the alcohol of the intoxicating bourgeois ideology cannot read lies, in the fog of the depths off Nantacket, in the dark of the walled tomb of the living in Marcinelle, in the bitterness of the slime of the stagnant ponds of the Arabian Desert, while the forces of the Revolution seem to be hiding and Great Capital carouses in the bright sunlight, we have again found, at his inexhaustible work, the Old Mole who undermines the curse of the infamous social forms, who prepares for the not near, but most certain, destructive explosion."

Sir Walter Scott Quotes

"Those who remarked in the countenance of this young hero a dissolute audacity mingled with extreme haughtiness ... could not yet deny to his countenance that sort of comeliness which belongs to an open set of features, well formed by nature, modeled by art to the usual rules of courtesy, yet so far frank and honest, that they seemed as if they disclaimed to conceal the natural working of the soul."

Richard Curtis Quotes

"Prime Minister: Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinions starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I dont see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often its not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but its always there - fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge - they were all messages of love. If you look for it, Ive got a sneaking suspision love actually is all around."

Michael Keaton Quotes

"High energy creates more energy, more energy, more energy. It kicks off synapses, I guess. It opens up your brain and you think of one thing after another thing, after another. You can really open yourself up comedically, which is fun."
