[Just Ignore Him And He'll Go Away, My Mother Used To Say To Gillian When We Were Young And I Bugged Her. Just Ignore Him. All He Wants Is Attention. In Retrospect There Seems To Be Something Almost Cruel About That—to Simultaneously Acknowledge And Refuse Someone's Desire For Attention—especially A Child's. All He Wants Is Attention, As If It's Bad To Want Attention, Like Wanting Money Or Power Or Fame.]

Roy Chapman Andrews Quotes

"Palaeontology is the Aladdins lamp of the most deserted and lifeless regions of the earth; it touches the rocks and there spring forth in orderly succession the monarchs of the past and the ancient river streams and savannahs wherein they flourished. The rocks usually hide their story in the most difficult and inaccessible places."

Hella S Haasse Quotes

"Is Oeroeg minder dan wij stootte ik uit. Is hij anders?Ben je belazerd, zei Gerard kalm, zonder de pijp uit zijn mond te nemen. Wie zegt dat? Ik bracht, niet zonder moeite, mijn gewaarwoordingen van die middag onder woorden.Een panter is anders dan een aap, zei Gerard, na een pauze, maar is een van de twee minder dan de ander? Dan vind je een idiote vraag, en je hebt gelijk. Blijf dat nou net zo idioot vinden, als het mensen betreft. Anders zijn - dat is gewoon. Iedereen is anders dan een ander. Ik ben ook anders dan jij. Maar minder of meer zijn door de kleur van je gezicht of door wat je vader is- dat is nonsens. Oeroeg is immers je vriend? Als hij zo is dat hij je vriend kan zijn- hoe kan hij dan ooit minder zijn dan jij, of een ander?"

Quotes About Looking At Someone

"Time had ceased to feel linear. She looked up through the crisscrossing branches, thick with buds, into the night sky. The stars tugged at her gaze, trying to pull her up among them, or she was pulling them down to her. She was on the verge of some great discovery, she realized, but she had no idea what it was, what it related to, whether it even had anything to do with her at all. Was she a participant, or an observer? Did the world center around her, or could it carry on quite easily without her input? Looking up at those stars, feeling the embrace of their light as it enfolded her, she felt both small and large, as though everything mattered and nothing did. When someone crouched down beside her it took years for her to turn her head to see who it was. All she could make out was a dark shape, a vague outline of head and shoulders silhouetted against the stars, the rest of the body lost in the shadows of the rose bushes." - Author: Charles de Lint

Quotes About Being Curious

When you sense yourself directly, immediately, right now, without preconception, who are you?" - Author: Geneen Roth

Quotes About Dogs Died

"I had survived the work gangs in the ghetto. Baked bread under cover of night. Hidden in a pigeon coop. Had a midnight bar mitzvah in the basement of an abandoned building. I had watched my parents be taken away to their deaths, had avoided Amon Goeth and his dogs, had survived the salt mines of Wieliczka and the sick games of Trzebinia. I had done so much to live, and now, here, the Nazis were going to take all that away with their furnace!I started to cry, the first tears I had shed since Moshe died. Why had I worked so hard to survive if it was always going to end like this? If I had known, I wouldnt have bothered. I would have let them kill me back in the ghetto. It would have been easier that way. All that I had done was for nothing." - Author: Alan Gratz
