Emmy Laybourne Quotes

"Your mother hollers that youre going to miss the bus. She can see it coming down the street. You dont stop and hug her and tell her you love her. You dont thank her for being a good, kind, patient mother. Of course not -- you vault down down the stairs and make a run for the corner.Only if its the last time youll ever see your mother, you sort of start to wish youd stopped and did those things. Maybe even missed the bus.But the bus was barreling down our street so I ran."

Quotes About Rest And Relaxation

"A fine risk is always something to be taken in philosophy. ... Philosophy thus arouses a drama between philosophers and an intersubjective movement which does not resemble the dialogue of teamworkers in science, nor even the Platonic dialogue which is the reminiscence of a drama rather than a drama itself. It is sketched out in a different structure; empirically it is realized as the history of philosophy in which new interlocutors always enter who have to restate, but in which the former ones take up the floor to answer in the interpretations they arouse, and in which, nonetheless, despite a lack of "certainty in ones movements" or because of it, no one is allowed a relaxation of attention or a lack of strictness." - Author: Emmanuel Levinas

The stocks of the guns were sandalwood, yellow and finely grained. The holsters were tied down withraw hide cord, and they swung heavily against his hips. The brass casings of the cartridges looped into the gun belts twinkled and flashed and heliographed in the sun. The leather made subtlecreaking noises. The guns themselves made no noise." - Author: Stephen King
