The more we are willing to see about their lives, the more we will see. Humans seem to take perverse pleasure in attributing stupidity to animals when it is almost always entirely a question of human ignorance."

"At the casting sessions it was all boys and though I wasnt exactly bored I didnt need to be there, and songs constantly floating in the car keep commenting on everything neutral encased within the windshields frame ( … one time you were blowing young ruffians … sung over the digital billboard on Sunset advertising the new Pixar movie) and the fear builds into a muted fury and then has no choice but to melt away into a simple and addictive sadness." - Author: Bret Easton Ellis

"The pejorative parigüayo, Watchers agree, is a corruption of the English neologism "party watcher."

Quotes About Bumps

"Marriage is not comfortable and harmonious. Rather it is a place of individuation where a person rubs up against oneself and against the partner, bumps up against the person in love and in rejection, and in this fashion learns to know oneself, the world, good and evil, the heights and the depths." - Author: Adolf Guggenbühl Craig

Quotes About Sintomi

"La fatica e la pena", per ottenere i beni necessari alla vita, e il piacere di "incorporarli" sono così strettamente legati assieme nel ciclo biologico che la perfetta eliminazione della pena e dello sforzo del lavoro non solo spoglierebbe la vita biologica dei suoi piaceri più naturali, ma priverebbe la vita specificamente umana della sua stessa vivacità e vitalità. La condizione umane è tale che la pena e lo sforzo non sono semplici sintomi, che possono essere rimossi senza cambiare la vita stessa; sono piuttosto modi in cui la vita, insieme con la necessità cui è legata, si fa percepire. Per i mortali, la "facile vita degli dei" sarebbe una vita senza vitalità." - Author: Hannah Arendt
