Elaine Bernard Quotes

"With deregulation, privatisation, free trade, what were seeing is yet another enclosure and, if you like, private taking of the commons. One of the things I find very interesting in our current debates is this concept of who creates wealth. That wealth is only created when its owned privately. What would you call clean water, fresh air, a safe environment? Are they not a form of wealth? And why does it only become wealth when some entity puts a fence around it and declares it private property? Well, you know, thats not wealth creation. Thats wealth usurpation."

Marlon James Quotes

Ronny Cox Quotes

"I much prefer playing the bad guys. I think they are always the most interesting characters. I liken it to painting: if youre playing the good guy, you get three colors: red, white and blue. But if youre the bad guy, you get the whole palette."

Charlotte Riddell Quotes

"The minister paused in his narrative. At that moment there came a tremendous blast of wind which shook the windows of the manse, and burst open the hall door, and caused the candles to flicker and the fire to go roaring up the chimney. It is not too much to say that, what with the uncanny story, and the howling storm, we all felt that creeping sort of uneasiness which so often seems like the touch of something from another world - a hand stretched across the boundary-line of time and eternity, the coldness and mystery of which make the stoutest heart tremble. ("Sandy The Tinker")"

Quotes About Buying A Car

"He thought about going out and buying a Sunday paper but decided not to. Arnold Stockton, Jessicas boss, a many-chinned, self-made caricature of a man, owned all the Sunday papers that Rupert Murdoch had failed to buy. His own papers talked about him, and so did the rest. Reading a Sunday paper would, Richard suspected, probably end up reminding him of the dinner had failed to attend on Friday night. So instead Richard had a long hot bath and a number of sandwiches, and several cups of tea." - Author: Neil Gaiman

Quotes About Casual Love

"What is meant by "reality"? It would seem to be something very erratic, very undependable—now to be found in a dusty road, now in a scrap of newspaper in the street, now a daffodil in the sun. It lights up a group in a room and stamps some casual saying. It overwhelms one walking home beneath the stars and makes the silent world more real than the world of speech—and then there it is again in an omnibus in the uproar of Piccadilly. Sometimes, too, it seems to dwell in shapes too far away for us to discern what their nature is. But whatever it touches, it fixes and makes permanent. That is what remains over when the skin of the day has been cast into the hedge; that is what is left of past time and of our loves and hates." - Author: Virginia Woolf

Quotes About Nuclear Physics

"I think the writing of literature should give pleasure. What else should it be about? It is not nuclear physics. It actually has to give pleasure or it is worth nothing." - Author: Stephen Greenblatt

Quotes About Not Marrying Young

"... I regularly frequent St. George;s, Hanover Square, during the genteel marriage season; and though I have never seen the bridegrooms male friends give way to tears, or the beadles and officiating clergy in any way affected, yet it is not at all uncommon to see women who are not in the least concerned in the operations going on -- old ladies who are long past marrying, stout middle-aged females with plenty of sons and daughters, let alone pretty young creatures in pink bonnets, who are on their promotion, and may naturally taken an interest in the ceremony -- I say it is quite common to see the women present piping, sobbing, sniffling; hiding their little faces in their little useless pocket-handkerchiefs; and heaving, old and young, with emotion." - Author: William Makepeace Thackeray

Quotes About Tuesday Afternoon

"Confidence dont mean jack shit in the real world, sis," she once said. I feel myself finding the courage to trust those words more and more with every twist of the knife. Coincidentally, last Tuesday afternoon I was involuntarily exposed to the punch line of an old wise tale that goes something like: "Theres beauty that can be found in everything." But why cant the insensitive cunt who said that ever find the courage to look in the mirror? Because poopycock, one might say." - Author: Dave Matthes

Quotes About Christs

"All the luck in the world has to come every year, in every part of every year, or there is not a harvest and then the luck, the bad luck will come and everything we are, all that we can ever be, all the Einsteins and babies and love and hate, all the joy and sadness and sex and wanting and liking and disliking, all the soft summer breezes on cheeks and first snowflakes, all the Van Goghs and Rembrandts and Mozarts and Mahlers and Thomas Jeffersons and Lincolns and Ghandis and Jesus Christs, all the Cleopatras and lovemaking and riches and achievements and progress, all of that, every single damn thing that we are or ever will be is dependent on six inches of topsoil and the fact that the rain comes when its needed and does not come when it is not needed; everything, every...single...thing comes with that luck." - Author: Gary Paulsen

Quotes About Grease School

"Seeing no better jobs on the horizon than flipping hamburgers with so much grease it would make Portugal, Italy, and Spain jealous, I decided to go back to school. It reminds me of something Zeldas mom told her in November 2007: "Some people flip condos and make millions. Your boyfriend couldnt even flip burgers and make minimum wage." - Author: Jarod Kintz
