Sevgi Soysal Quotes

"Bir elmanın bir meyve olduğu, bir babanın baba, bir savaşın savaş olduğu, bir gerçeğin gerçek olduğu, bir yalanın yalan olduğu, bir aşkın aşk olduğu, bir bıkmanın bıkma olduğu, bir başkaldırmanın başkaldırma olduğu, bir sessizliğin bir sessizlik olduğu, bir haksızlığın bir haksızlık olduğu, bir düzenin bir düzen ve bir evliliğin bir evlilik olduğu, olacağı günler gelecekti, inanıyordu Tante Rosa."

Jane Goldman Quotes

"Woolf s control over the production of her own work is a significant factor in her genesis as a writer. The Hogarth Press became an important and influential publishing house in the decades that followed. It was responsible, for example, for the first major works of Freud in English, beginning in 1922, and published significant works by key modernist writers such as T. S. Eliot and Gertrude Stein. Woolf herself set the type for the Hogarth edition ofEliots The Waste Land (1923), which he read to them in June 1922, and which she found to have ‘great beauty & force of phrase: symmetry; & tensity. What connects it together, Im not so sure (D2 178)."

Quotes About Nike Goddess

"The giant raised his fist, and a voice cut through the dream. "Leo!" Jason was shaking his shoulder. "Hey, man, why are you hugging Nike?" Leos eyes fluttered open. His arms were wrapped around the human-sized statue in Athenas hand. He must have been thrashing in his sleep. He clung to the victory goddess like he used to cling to his pillow when he had nightmares as a kid. (Man, that had been so embarrassing in the foster homes.) He disentangled himself and sat up, rubbing his face. "Nothing," he muttered. "we were just cuddling. Um, whats going on?" - Author: Rick Riordan

Quotes About Abused Animals

"In Germany, Dodd had noticed, no one ever abused a dog, and as a consequence dogs were never fearful around men and were always plump and obviously well tended. "Only horses seem to be equally happy, never children or the youth," he wrote. ... He called it "horse happiness" and had noticed the same phenomenon in Nuremburg and Dresden. In part, he knew this happiness was fostered by German law, which forbade cruelty to animals and punished violators with prison. "At a time when hundreds of men have been put to death without trial or any sort of evidence of guilt, and when the population literally trembles with fear, animals have rights guaranteed them which men and women cannot think of expecting." He added, "One might easily wish he were a horse!" - Author: Erik Larson

Quotes About Hellfire

"Lincoln was raised in the thick of Old School Calvinism. In Kentucky and Indiana, his parents belonged to a fire-breathing sect called Separate Baptism, in which congregants heard—in the tradition of Jonathan Edwards famous sermon "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God"—that they were bound for eternal hellfire, and nothing they could do or say or think would change their fate. Preachers did allow that a chosen few were ordained for grace and would be saved, but these fortunate ones had been selected by God before time began. As one Baptist preacher in Lincolns Kentucky explained it, "Long before the morning stars sang together . . . the Almighty looked down upon the ages yet unborn, as it were, in review before him, and selected one here and another there to enjoy eternal life and left the rest to the blackness of darkness forever." Such Baptist ministers were so intense that it has been said that they "out-Calvined Calvin." - Author: Joshua Wolf Shenk

Quotes About Service To Country

"This historic general election, which showed that the British are well able to distinguish between patriotism and Toryism, brought Clement Attlee to the prime ministership. In the succeeding five years, Labor inaugurated the National Health Service, the first and boldest experiment in socialized medicine. It took into public ownership all the vital (and bankrupted) utilities of the coal, gas, electricity and railway industries. It even nibbled at the fiefdoms and baronies of private steel, air transport and trucking. It negotiated the long overdue independence of India. It did all this, in a country bled white by the World War and subject to all manner of unpopular rationing and controls, without losing a single midterm by-election (a standard not equaled by any government of any party since). And it was returned to office at the end of a crowded term." - Author: Christopher Hitchens

Quotes About Mare

"Nicioodată nu te voi trăda de tot, deşi te-am trădat şi te voi trăda la fiecare pas; Când te-am urât nu te-am putut uita; Te-am blestemat, ca să te suport; Te-am refuzat, ca să te schimbi; Te-am chemat şi n-ai venit, am urlat şi nu mi-ai zâmbit, am fost trist şi nu m-ai mângâiat. Am plâns şi nu mi-ai îndulcit lacrimile. Deşert ai fost rugăminţilor mele. Ucis-am în gând întâia clipă a vieţii şi fulgerat-am începuturile tale, secetă în fructe, uscăciune în flori şi secarea izvoarelor dorit-a sufletul meu. Dar recunoscător îţi este sufletul meu pentru zâmbetul ce l-a văzut doar el şi nimeni altul; recunoscător pentru acea întâlnire, de nimeni aflată; acea întâlnire nu se uită, ci cu credinţa ascunsă în tine răsună în tăcere, înverzeşte pustiuri, îndulceşte lacrimi şi înseninează singurătăţi. Îţi jur că niciodată nu vei cunoaşte marea mea trădare. Jur pe tot ce poate fi mai sfânt: pe zâmbetul tău, că nu mă voi despărţi niciodată de tine." - Author: Emil Cioran
