[It Quickly Became Apparent That To Mr. K, There Was No Such Thing As An Untalented Kid—just A Kid Who Didn't Work Hard Enough. You Are Going To Fix This Problem, He Said When He Diag- Nosed Whatever Was Wrong, And There Was Never Any Question. Of Course You Would. It Was Just A Matter Of Trying And Trying And Trying Some More. He Yelled Not Because We'd Never Learn, But Because He Was Absolutely Certain That We Would.]

Val McDermid Quotes

"Its a piece of cake, being a lawyer or a doctor or a computer systems analyst or an accountant. Libraries are full of books telling you how to do it. The only textbooks for private eyes are on fiction shelves, and I dont remember ever reading one that told me how to interrogate an eight-year old without feeling like I was auditioning for the Gestapo."

Lisa Alther Quotes

"I happen to feel that the degree of a persons intelligence is directly reflected by the number of conflicting attitudes she can bring to bear on the same topic."

John Sutter Quotes

"I was everything, patriarch, priest, father and judge."

Louis Sachar Quotes

"I want kids to think that reading can be just as much fun and more so than TV or video games or whatever else they do. I think any other kind of message or morals that I might teach is secondary to first just enjoying a book."

Giannina Braschi Quotes

"Zarathustra: Do you have words? Do your words belong to you?Giannina: No, my answer is no. I have no property in the dictionary. Words are anonymous like the disenfranchised masses that havent been weighed - or named - or framed. My words belong to those who dont belong."

Neil T Anderson Quotes

"It takes time to establish trust in something or someone because it requires consistent and continuous behavior demonstrated over time. That is why our relationships are so fragile. It may take months or years to establish a high level of trust, but one act of unfaithfulness can destroy it. We can choose to forgive those who betray us, but it would take a long time to regain the trust that was lost."

"Orang itu berdo(s)a setelah berdo(s)a."

Theodore Agrippa DAubigne Quotes

"Sanotaan, että kaikki kauheudet on syytä hukuttaa / unohduksen kuiluun, hautoihin sulkea / ja että kirjoittaen henkiin herätetty paha / turmelee jälkipolvien moraalin. / Mutta paheen äiti ei ole tieto, / eikä hyve ole tietämättömyyden tytär."

Quotes About Paolo

"The past gathered out of the darkness where it stayed, and the dead raised themselves to live before him; and the past and the dead flowed into the present among the alive, so that he had for an intense instant a vision of denseness into which he was compacted and from which he could not escape, and had no wish to escape. Tristan, Iseult the fair, walked before him; Paolo and Francesca whirled in the glowing dark; Helen and bright Paris, their faces bitter with consequence, rose from the gloom. And he was with them in a way that he could never be with his fellows who went from class to class." - Author: John Edward Williams

Quotes About Almost Falling In Love

"As I stand at the edge of the pit, searching for his body amongst all the others, I am slightly frightened by the violent clashes. It seems almost savagery, the way they throw themselves into each other. As I continue to watch, unable to look away, drawn in by their angry and troubled release I see him. His body is sweating, his muscles are flexed and his face holds an expression of pain mixed with pleasure. In that moment I realize their is so much I dont know about the man I am falling in love with and my fear of him excites me." - Author: Nicole T. Smith

Quotes About Evil Villains

"This was another of our fears: that Life wouldnt turn out to be like Literature. Look at our parents--were they the stuff of Literature? At best, they might aspire to the condition of onlookers and bystanders, part of a social backdrop against which real, true, important things could happen. Like what? The things Literature was about: Love, sex, morality, friendship, happiness, suffering, betrayal, adultery, good and evil, heroes and villains, guilt and innocence, ambition, power, justice, revolution, war, fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, the individual against society, success and failure, murder, suicide, death, God." - Author: Julian Barnes

Quotes About Serbian Army

"Is not literature meant to speak of our being a thousand different kinds of things, at times creating even this diversity?

A bureaucrat will do, and a rubber stamp. A border guard. An Army." - Author: Péter Esterházy
