Rachel Dickinson Quotes

"What I see especially among the Navajos and the Zunis and the Hopis is a culture of people who have been smart enough to learn a lesson that were awfully slow to get... They know that being rich doesnt have any damn thing to do with how much money youve got. Its got to do with are you happy and are you content."

Stanislav Andreski Quotes

"So long as authority inspires awe, confusion and absurdity enhance conservative tendencies in society. Firstly, because clear and logical thinking leads to a cumulation of knowledge (of which the progress of the natural sciences provides the best example) and the advance of knowledge sooner or later undermines the traditional order. Confused thinking, on the other hand, leads nowhere in particular and can be indulged indefinitely without producing any impact upon the world."

Matthew Simpson Quotes

"Passing into practical life, illustrations of this fact are found everywhere; the distant, or the unseen, steadies and strengthens us against the rapid whirl of things around us."

Quotes About Misunderstanding In Relationship

"The battlefield is symbolic of the field of life, where every creature lives on the death of another. A realization of the inevitable guilt of life may so sicken the heart, that like Hamlet, or like Arjuna, one may refuse to go on with it. On the other hand, like most of the rest of us, one may invent a false finally unjustified image of oneself as an exceptional phenomenon in the world--not guilty as others are, but justified in ones inevitable sinning, because one represents the good. Such self-righteousness leads to a misunderstanding, not only of oneself, but of the nature of both Man and the Cosmos. The goal of the myth is to dispel the need for such life-ignorance by affecting a reconciliation of the individual consciousness with the universal will, and this is affected through a realization of the true relationship of the passing phenomena of time to the imperishable life that lives and dies in all." - Author: Joseph Campbell

Quotes About Losses And Gains

"Survive long enough and you get to a far point in life where nothing else of particular interest is going to happen. After that, if you dont watch out, you can spend all your time tallying your losses and gains in endless narrative. All you love has fled or been taken away. Everything fallen from you except the possibility of jolting and unforewarned memory springing out of the dark, rushing over you with the velocity of heartbreak. May walking down the hall humming an old song—"The Girl I Left Behind Me"—or the mere fragrance of clove in spiced tea can set you weeping and howling when all youve been for weeks on end is numb." - Author: Charles Frazier

Quotes About Enna

"You raise one eyebrow and regardme with another intense stare. "Start by stripping pleaseJenna."I hear what you say and yet on some level I cant quite process it."Strip?" I ask, as though I dont understand your demand."Yes, strip. Take off all of your clothes. I want to see you naked. Now please."I feel dazed, yet I let my jacket fall to the floor, and start work on my shirt buttons. Your eyes never leave me.I can feel them mining into me whilst I tackle the third button. Why is this so weird? Youre my husband afterall. Youve seen me undress and naked countless times.Yet this is different. I am not just undressing, I am stripping. Its not my decision; its at your command. You are not just Oliver now; youre my Husband – some dominant entity now in charge. For some strange reason, I am finding it really hot! The look in your eyes is not just appreciative; its carnal. Waves begin to rise in my pool of desire." - Author: Felicity Brandon

Quotes About Ability To Love

"I was merely making more perceptible that binary rhythm which love adopts in all those who have too little confidence in themselves to believe that a woman can ever fall in love with them, and also that they themselves can genuinely fall in love with her. They know themselves well enough to have observed that in the presence of the most divergent types of woman they felt the same hopes, the same agonies, invented the same romances, uttered the same words, and to have realised therefore that their feelings, their actions, bear no close and necessary relation to the woman they love, but pass to one side of her, splash her, encircle her, like the incoming tide breaking against the rocks, and their sense of their own instability increases still further their misgivings that this woman, by whom they so long to be loved, does not love them." - Author: Marcel Proust

Quotes About Getting Arrested

"Well, I believe she went in to rescue some Raggers from the pits," Cuffs said. "She wasnt all that specific.""She went in to rescue — why would she do that?" Amon gripped the ironwork, studying the streetlords face. Was he lying? And if so, what was the purpose?"Guess shes kind of taken with us," Cuffs said. "You know, the glamor of the gang life and all. Getting beat up every other day, arrested for crimes you didnt commit, long nights in gaol, sleeping in the cold and wet. Its...seductive." He raised an eyebrow." - Author: Cinda Williams Chima

Quotes About John Steinbeck

"..."Maybe its like this, Max--you know how, when you are working on a long and ordered piece, all sorts of bright and lovely ideas and images intrude. They have no place in what you are writing, and so if you are young, you write them in a notebook for future use. And you never use them because they are sparkling and alive like colored pebbles on a wave-washed shore. Its impossible not to fill your pockets with them. But when you get home, they are dry and colorless. Id like to pin down a few while they are still wet."...John Steinbeck" - Author: John Steinbeck

Quotes About Pecuchet

"Then they wondered if there were men in the stars. Why not? And as creation is harmonious, the inhabitants of Sirius ought to be huge, those of Mars middle-sized, those of Venus very small. Unless it is the same everywhere. There are businessmen, police up there; people trade, fight, dethrone their kings. Some shooting stars suddenly slid past, describing a course in the sky like the parabola of a monstrous rocket. ‘My Word, said Bouvard, ‘look at those worlds disappearing. Pecuchet replied: ‘If our world in its turn danced about, the citizens of the stars would be no more impressed than we are now. Ideas like that are rather humbling. ‘What is the point of it all? ‘Perhaps there isnt a point. ‘Yet… and Pecuchet repeated the word two or three times, without finding anything more to say." - Author: Gustave Flaubert

Quotes About Painful Relationships

"With a new awareness, both painful and humorous, I begin to understand why the saints were rarely married women. I am convinced it has nothing inherently to do, as I once supposed, with chastity or children. It has to do primarily with distractions. The bearing, rearing, feeding and educating of children; the running of a house with its thousand details; human relationships with their myriad pulls--womans normal occupations in general run counter to creative life, or contemplative life, or saintly life. The problem is not merely one of Woman and Career, Woman and the Home, Woman and Independence. It is more basically: how to remain whole in the midst of the distractions of life; how to remain balanced, no matter what centrifugal forces tend to pull one off center; how to remain strong, no matter what shocks come in at the periphery and tend to crack the hub of the wheel." - Author: Anne Morrow Lindbergh
