Quotes About Slip Of The Tongue

"If this constant sliding and hiding of meaning were true of conscious life, then we would of course never be able to speak coherently at all. If the whole of language were present to me when I spoke, then I would not be able to articulate anything at all. The ego, or consciousness, can therefore only work by repressing this turbulent activity, provisionally nailing down words on to meanings. Every now and then a word from the unconscious which I do not want insinuates itself into my discourse, and this is the famous Freudian slip of the tongue or parapraxis. But for Lacan all our discourse is in a sense a slip of the tongue: if the process of language is as slippery and ambiguous as he suggests, we can never mean precisely what we say and never say precisely what we mean. Meaning is always in some sense an approximation, a near-miss, a part-failure, mixing non-sense and non-communication into sense and dialogue." - Author: Terry Eagleton

Quotes About Loose Morals

"Like anybody can tell you, I am not a very nice man. I dont know the word. I have always admired the villain, the outlaw, the son of a bitch. I dont like the clean-shaven boy with the necktie and the good job. I like desperate men, men with broken teeth and broken minds and broken ways. They interest me. They are full of surprises and explosions. I also like vile women, drunk cursing bitches with loose stockings and sloppy mascara faces. Im more interested in perverts than saints. I can relax with bums because I am a bum. I dont like laws, morals, religions, rules. I dont like to be shaped by society." - Author: Charles Bukowski

Quotes About Boring Days

"Dont worry. Itll never happen again. You know me, I do date occasionally, but I usually spend at least a few normal, boring days with a guy before we rock the house down.

Quotes About No Man Left Behind

"He was no stranger to brutal death. Both as sheriff and as a cop on Chicagos south side, hed seen his share of dying. Murder, accident, overdose - it happened in many ways, but the end was the same.

Quotes About Nightgown

"I used to be a good fighter." She looks out along the boxwoods, wipes off her sweat with her palm.

Quotes About Being One Of A Kind

"As it turned out, one of the hostels crewmembers was more than a little bit off center. You know the type. They seem to enjoy being miserable themselves and just cant help but share the feeling.

This is never a productive route to take. Weve all seen this kind of thing" - Author: Doug Ten Rose
