Rosalie De Rosset Quotes

"The goal of using our voice is not just to be noticed, but with humility to gracefully be fully present in relationships. Deferring to another person does not require that we be ignored; allowing that is cowardice. Hiding, a form of dishonesty, prevents true community."

Joseph E Stiglitz Quotes

"ΕπιθυμίεςΣαν σώματα ωραία νεκρών που δεν εγέρασανκαι τάκλεισαν, με δάκρυα, σε μαυσωλείο λαμπρό,με ρόδα στο κεφάλι και στα πόδια γιασεμιά --έτσ η επιθυμίες μοιάζουν που επέρασανχωρίς να εκπληρωθούν· χωρίς ν αξιωθεί καμιάτης ηδονής μια νύχτα, ή ένα πρωϊ της φεγγερό."Desires"Like beautiful bodies of the dead who had not grown oldand they shut them, with tears, in a brilliant mausoleum,with roses at the head and jasmine at the feet --this is what desires resemble that have passedwithout fulfillment; without any of them having achieveda night of sensual delight, or a morning of brightness." - Author: C.P.

Quotes About Fleetingness

"Is there a relative value of beauty? Is evanescence - fleetingness - a necessary element of the thing that most moves us? A shooting star dazzles more than the sun. A child captivates like an elf, but grows into grossness, an ogre, a harpy. A flower splays itself into color - the lilies of the field! - more treasured than any painting of a flower. But of all these things, womens grace, shooting stars, flowers, and paintings, only a painting endures." - Author: Gregory Maguire

Quotes About Life And Cherries

Quotes About Looks And Intelligence

"The Bear had once confided to me that Durrells ego could fit snugly in the basilica of St. Peters in Rome but in very few other public places.

He was built lean and slim and dark, like a Doberman. A man of breeding and refrigerated intelligence, he ordered his life like a table of logarithms." - Author: Pat Conroy
