"My overcoat is worn out; my shirts also are worn out. And I ask to be allowed to have a lamp in the evening; it is indeed wearisome sitting alone in the dark."

Erri De Luca Quotes

"A settembre succedono giorni di cielo sceso in terra. Si abbassa il ponte levatoio del suo castello in aria e giù per una scala azzurra il cielo si appoggia per un poco al suolo. A dieci anni potevo vedere i gradini squadrati, da poterli risalire cogli occhi. Oggi mi contento di averli visti e di credere che ci sono ancora. Settembre è il mese delle nozze tra la superficie terrestre e lo spazio di sopra acceso dalla luce. Sulle terrazze gradinate a viti i pescatori fanno i contadini e raccolgono i grappoli nei cesti fatti dalle donne. Prima ancora di spremerli, il giorno di vendemmia ubriaca gli scalzi tra i filari al sole e lo sciame delle vespe assetate."

Quotes About Sondheim

"I had no idea how difficult Sondheims music would be. All through the rehearsals, I kept flubbing. There were so many tempo changes. I could never get through the opening number without any mistakes. One day, I went up to Hal Prince and offered to leave the show. He laughed it off. He said, Dont be silly. Thats why we have tryouts." - Author: Mako

Quotes About Disguise

"The impression somehow prevails that the true believer, particularly the religious individual, is a humble person. The truth is the surrendering and humbling of the self breed pride and arrogance. The true believer is apt to see himself as one of the chosen, the salt of the earth, the light of the world, a prince disguised in meekness, who is destined to inherit the earth and the kingdom of heaven too. He who is not of his faith is evil; he who will not listen will perish." - Author: Eric Hoffer

Quotes About Tracks Of Life

"From the place by the railing at the edge of the tracks on the summer evening I return across the city to my own room. I am vividly aware of my own life that escaped the winter on the boat. How many such lives I have lived. Then I only made a dollar and a half a day and now I sometimes make more than that in a few minutes. How wonderful to be able to write words. ... Again I begin the endless game of reconstructing my own life, jerking it out of the shell that dies, striving to breathe into it beauty and meaning. ... I wonder why my life, why all lives, are not more beautiful." - Author: Sherwood Anderson

Quotes About Tension In Books

"(Dorothy) Dunnett is the master of the invisible, particularly in her later books. Where is this tension coming from? Why is this scene so agonizing? Why is this scene so emotional? Tension and emotion pervade the books, sometimes almost unbearably, yet when you look at the writing, at the actual words, theres nothing to show that the scene is emotional at all. I think it is because Dunnett layers her novels, meaning that each event is informed by what has come before (and what came before that, and what came before that) but Dunnett doesnt signpost in the text that this is happening, leaving it to the reader to bring the relevant information to the table" - Author: C.S.

Quotes About Movie Magic

"I loved Jack because of every little thing about him.

Quotes About Saying Something You Shouldnt Have

"The city may have chosen to ignore the ugly growth of Dharavi, but a cancer cannot be stopped simply by being declared illegal. It still kills with its slow poison." - Author: Vikas Swarup

Quotes About Bible Disobedience

"[Jesus] must have control not only in the big things, but in the little things also; not only over what we do, but how we do it. We must submit to Him and His way as He has been pleased to reveal it in the Bible; and if what we do does not conform to this pattern, it is an assertion of our will, it is disobedience, and as repellent as the sin of witchcraft." - Author: D. Martyn Lloyd Jones

Quotes About Facial Expressions

"Sign is a live, contemporaneous, visual-gestural language and consists of hand shapes, hand positioning, facial expressions, and body movements. Simply put, it is for me the most beautiful, immediate, and expressive of languages, because it incorporates the entire human body." - Author: Myron Uhlberg
