Marcel Proust Quotes

"Faced with the thoughts, the actions of a woman whom we love, we are as completely at a loss as the worlds first natural philosophers must have been, face to face with the phenomena of nature, before their science had been elaborated and had cast a ray of light over the unknown. Or, worse still, we are like a person in whose mind the law of causality barely exists, a person who would be incapable, therefore, of establishing a connexion between one phenomenon and another and to whose eyes the spectacle of the world would appear as unstable as a dream."

Will Arnett Quotes

"But since day one, weve always been kinda up against it. So at the end, its not surprising that we were kind of led along for so many months and didnt know what the fate of the show was gonna be. It was... in a weird way, just kind of that was the way its always been."

Chief Luther Standing Bear Quotes

"Kinship with all creatures of the earth, sky, and water was a real and active principle. In the animal and bird world there existed a brotherly feeling that kept us safe among them... The animals had rights - the right of mans protection, the right to live, the right to multiply, the right to freedom, and the right to mans indebtedness. This concept of life and its relations filled us with the joy and mystery of living; it gave us reverence for all life; it made a place for all things in the scheme of existence with equal importance to all."

Quotes About Meeting Me Halfway

"He opens his window and motions for me to open mine. When I do, he tries to say something. His voice barely carries through the sound of the rain coming down hard between us.I lean out the car window. "What?" He leans out his window, meeting me halfway. Were both wet and soaked, but neither of us seems to care. "Dont run away from me when I need to tell you somethin important.""What?" I say, hoping he doesnt notice the tears running down my face, and praying theyre getting mixed up with the rain. "Tonight was . . . well, it was perfect for me, too.

Quotes About A Man Character

"For several thousand years man has been in contact with animals whose character and habits have been deformed by domestication. He has ended by believing that he understands them. All he means by this is that he is able to rely on certain reflex actions which he himself has implanted in them. He will flatter himself at times on the grasp of animal psychology which has brought him the love of the dog and the purr of the cat; and on the strength of such assumptions he approaches the beasts of the jungle. The old tag about nature being an open book is just not true. What nature offers on a first examination may appear to be simple but it is never as simple as it appears." - Author: Hans Brick
