Jhumpa Lahiri Quotes

"While the astronauts, heroes forever, spent mere hours on the moon, I have remained in this new world for nearly thirty years. I know that my achievement is quite ordinary. I am not the only man to seek his fortune far from home, and certainly I am not the first. Still, there are times I am bewildered by each mile I have traveled, each meal I have eaten, each person I have known, each room in which I have slept. As ordinary as it all appears, there are times when it is beyond my imagination." (from "The Third and Final Continent")"

Aruni Kashyap Quotes

"A radical love story is the only device that makes the time-chariot of a village, a city, a country, gallop faster. Such a love story pulls the wheels of that chariot from a murky, regressive past towards a spotlessly clean road under autumn-blue skies. And for that chariot to move forward, to bring change in the village, you dont have to be conscious of being a radical. You just have to fall in love."

Gabe A Lopez Quotes

"I try to cherish the moments I have, for I dread the day I get out of the tub and the wrinkles wont go away..."

Mortimer J Adler Quotes

"To be informed is to know simply that something is the case. To be enlightened is to know, in addition, what it is all about: why it is the case, what its connections are with other facts, in what respects it is the same, in what respects it is different, and so forth. This distinction is familiar in terms of the differences between being able to remember something and being able to explain it. If you remember what an author says, you have learned something from reading him. If what he says is true, you have even learned something about the world. But whether it is a fact about the book or a fact about the world that you have learned, you have gained nothing but information if you have exercised only your memory. You have not been enlightened. Enlightenment is achieved only when, in addition to knowing what an author says, you know what he means and why he says it."

Toni Trucks Quotes

"If you look at my body of work, my characters drastically vary, and so I typically dont play the same role. It makes me feel reborn with each role."

Linda Harvey Quotes

"Sex and "sexual orientation" are being shoved at kids everywhere. It was not this way in past decades, and I believe this is another cause of more stress in kids."

Quotes About Simplicity Girl

"Believe me, if Archimedes ever had the grand entrance of a girl as pretty as Gloria to look forward to, he would never have spent so much time calculating the value of Pi. He would have been baking her a Pie! If Euclid had ever beheld a vision of loveliness like the one I see walking into my anti-math class, he would have forgotten all the geometry of lines and planes, and concentrated on the sweet simplicity of soft curves. If Pythagoras had ever had a girl look at him the way Glorias eyes fix in my direction, he would have given up his calculations on the hypotenuse of right triangles and run for the hills to pick a bouquet of wildflowers." - Author: David Klass

Quotes About Rough Hands

"Im not sure if you would consider this a dream or a memory, because it actually happened, but when I fall asleep I see the room in which I mourned the death of my son. For those of you who were there, you will remember how we sat without speaking, easting only as much as we had to. You will remember when a bird crashed through the window and fell to the floor. You will remember, those of you who were there, how it jerked its wings before dying, and left a spot of blood on the floor after it was removed. But who among you was the first to notice the negative bird it left in the window? Who first saw the shadow that the bird left behind, the shadow that drew blood from any finger that dared to race it, the shadow that was better proof of the birds existence than the bird ever was? Who was with me when I mourned the death of my son, when I excused myself to bury that bird with my own hands?" - Author: Jonathan Safran Foer

Quotes About The Strange And Unusual

"He tried to remember Moon Childs eyes, but was no longer able to. He was sure of only one thing: that her glance had passed through his eyes and down into his heart. He could still feel the burning trail it had left behind. That glance, he felt, was embedded in his heart, and there it glittered like a mysterious jewel. And in a strange and wonderful way it hurt.Even if Bastian had wanted to, he couldnt have defended himself against this thing that had happened to him. However, he didnt want to. Oh no, not for anything in the world would he have parted with that jewel. All he wanted was to go on reading, to see Moon Child again, to be with her.IT never occurred to him that he was getting into the most unusual and perhaps the most dangerous of adventures. But even if he had known this, he wouldnt have dreamed of shutting the book." - Author: Michael Ende

Quotes About Stress Funny

"We passed by a few workers, who did double takes as we ran past. I supposed that the image of a hairless cat in a sweater being followed by a stressed-looking chick in stiletto boots could have been funny. I was too anxious to get the hell out of there to see any humor in it." - Author: Jaye Wells

Quotes About Couples

"Are there any books of that sort nowadays? The only ones I ever see mentioned in the papers are about married couples who find life grey, and cant stick each other at any price." - Author: P.G. Wodehouse

Quotes About Sojourners

"They rode up the faint marks of the old trace where thousands of sojourners walking and riding both had crossed it and before them the buffalo far back in time. She joined the stream of humanity that had gone down that road, just one more story in a stream of narratives both likely and unlikely that were being told somewhere even now, by someone, in a far place." - Author: Paulette Jiles

Quotes About Circumstantial Evidence

"My worst fears from jury selection manifested themselves in the verdict. This jury needed someone to tell them exactly how Caylee died. Piecing it together from circumstantial evidence was not good enough for them. They wanted the answers on a silver platter, but we didnt have the evidence to serve it that way. Its not just the verdict that tells me this, but also the manner in which it was reached. The fact that they didnt request any materials to review. The fact that they didnt have any questions for the judge. If the statements that the foreman of the jury made to the media are true, ten of these twelve jurors felt that ninety minutes of deliberation was sufficient to fully weigh, consider, and reject four weeks worth of testimony that we on the prosecution used to establish that this was first-degree murder. The rest of the thirteen hours of deliberation had been spent trying to convince the two holdout jurors of the decision." - Author: Jeff Ashton

Quotes About Attempt

"Insufficient adjustment is also a source of tension between exasperated parents and teenagers who enjoy loud music in their room. Le Boeuf and Shafir note that a "well-intentioned child who turns down exceptionally loud music to meet a parents demand that it be played at a ‘reasonable volume may fail to adjust sufficiently from a high anchor, and may feel that genuine attempts at compromise are being overlooked." - Author: Daniel Kahneman

Quotes About Romanticizing The Past

"Recent fads in history and biography have increasingly exalted the aridity of chronology and fact, and have, with some valid reason, rejected romanticizing and the presumption of guessing at the inner thoughts of historical figures. Unfortunately, the result has largely been not to demythologize the past, but merely to dehumanize and depersonalize it. As Roger Mudd has pointed out, Too many of todays historians [and biographers] ... seem to have forgotten that the writing of history is a literary art." - Author: Markham Shaw Pyle
