Walter R Brooks Quotes

"Mr. Camphor could see that he (Freddie) was thinking, because he shut his eyes and put on a fiercely determined look. But when presently he opened his eyes, he shook his head. "No good," he said.

Ill try again later."

Quotes About Vacuity

"Collaborations are the black holes of knowledge regimes. They willingly produce nothingness, opulence and ill behavior. And it is their very vacuity that is their strength...It does not entail the transmission of something from those who have to those who do not, but rather the setting in motion of a chain of unforeseen accesses." - Author: Florian Schneider

Quotes About Senilidad

"Quando eu era muito novo e sentia em mim o impulso irreprimível de estar em qualquer outro lugar, foi-me assegurado por pessoas de idade madura que a maturidade curaria este desejo ardente. Quando os anos me indicavam como amadurecido, o remédio prescrito foi a meia-idade. Na meia-idade, asseguraram-me que uns anos mais acalmariam a minha febre, e agora, que tenho cinquenta e oito, talvez a senilidade o consiga. Nada surtiu efeito. Quatro sopros roufenhos do apito de um navio ainda arrepiam o cabelo da minha nuca e põem os meus pés a sapatear. O som de um avião de jacto, de um motor a aquecer, até o bater de cascos ferrados no pavimento, provocam o antigo formigar, a boca seca e o olhar vago, o calor das palmas das mãos e a agitação violenta do estômago, aos pulos sob a caixa das costelas. Por outras palavras, não melhoro, ou, indo mais longe, quem foi vadio é sempre vadio. Receio que a doença seja incurável." - Author: John Steinbeck

Quotes About Mandos

"Now for a good twelve-hour sleep, I told myself. Twelve solid hours. Let birds sing, let people go to work. Somewhere out there, a volcano might blow, Israeli commandos might decimate a Palestinian village. I couldnt stop it. I was going to sleep." - Author: Haruki Murakami

Quotes About Tutelage

"Actually—and this was where I began to feel seriously uncomfortable—some such divine claim underlay not just the occupation but the whole idea of a separate state for Jews in Palestine. Take away the divine warrant for the Holy Land and where were you, and what were you? Just another land-thief like the Turks or the British, except that in this case you wanted the land without the people. And the original Zionist slogan—a land without a people for a people without a land—disclosed its own negation when I saw the densely populated Arab towns dwelling sullenly under Jewish tutelage. You want irony? How about Jews becoming colonizers at just the moment when other Europeans had given up on the idea?" - Author: Christopher Hitchens

Quotes About Forgetting And Moving On

"Even in forgetting there is an aspect of recollection, a faded few moments of wispy consciousness clung like webs in high-vaulted chambers, moving ever so lightly with the draft." - Author: Jeffrey Panzer

Quotes About Immigrant Parents

"I was raised, myself, by extremely strict but also extremely loving Chinese immigrant parents. To this day, I believe that their having high expectations for me, coupled with love, was the greatest gift that anyones ever given me.

Quotes About Dual Diagnosis

"You might find it alarming to think that your doctor will not actually need to see you in person but might make a diagnosis based on the position of the stars, the colour and smell of your urine, and the taste of your blood." - Author: Ian Mortimer
