Judith Herrin Quotes

"In this sense, Byzantine culture embodies the French historian Fernand Braudels notion of the longue durée, the long term: that which survives the vicissitudes of changing governments, newfangled fashions or technological improvements, an ongoing inheritance that can both imprison and inspire."

Penelope Marzec Quotes

"That made love—not grace—the magic ingredient. Then anew thought hit her. Perhaps love was grace. A shiver wentup her spine. What did that make anger? The antithesis ofgrace?"

Hannah Fielding Quotes

"As the sun began to rise, the man reached out to the woman, and they clasped hands. He cradled her, and languidly they lifted themselves up to their feet, their bodies brushing, their eyes lost in each others. Sensuously, deliberately, they danced, moving as though they were one, their body language smooth as their limbs carefully unfolded. They twirled and rocked, intertwined and separated, nearly leaning onto one another but barely touching, their movements sometimes tender, sometimes almost violent...Moments passed while the dancers held tight to each other, as though their bodies were melting together. The expression on their features as they lifted their faces to the sky was one of unimaginable joy."

Gray Davis Quotes

"Right up until camera time, I was sweaty and green from having to touch my own eyeballs like that. If youve never had to do it, Id say its not as quease-making as when you lose your first tampon string, but equally as queasish to a self-breast exam. If you are male, I would liken it to touching your own eyeball, and thank you for buying this book." - Author: Tina Fey

Quotes About Zim

"Kitaplar yeni tanıdıklarına karşı çok ketum olurlar. Bir kere de onlarla laubali oldunuz mu size malik oldukları her şeyi verirler ve onlar bizim isteyebileceğimiz her şeye fazlasıyla maliktirler. Kitapları bir kadın gibi sevenler, yalnız bekar odalarının azabını daha az duyarlar. Ellerinde bir kitapla beraber yattıkları, başuçlarındaki lambayı yaktıkları zaman, bahtiyar bir evlilik hayatının daima tekrar edilen saadetini hissederler. Kitaplarla zifafa girmesini bilen adam, beşerliğinden kurtulmaya başlamıştır.Ve biz daima, daima beşeriz." - Author: Sabahattin Ali

Quotes About Literature And Life

"He was conscious—and the thought brought a gleam of pleasure into his brown agate eyes—that it was through certain words of his, musical words said with musical utterance, that Dorian Grays soul had turned to this white girl and bowed in worship before her. To a large extent the lad was his own creation. He had made him premature. That was something. Ordinary people waited till life disclosed to them its secrets, but to the few, to the elect, the mysteries of life were revealed before the veil was drawn away. Sometimes this was the effect of art, and chiefly of the art of literature, which dealt immediately with the passions and the intellect. But now and then a complex personality took the place and assumed the office of art, was indeed, in its way, a real work of art, life having its elaborate masterpieces, just as poetry has, or sculpture, or painting." - Author: Oscar Wilde

Quotes About Losing A Great Grandfather

God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables, slaves with white collars, advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we dont need. Were the middle children of the history man, no purpose or place, we have no Great war, no Great depression, our great war is a spiritual war, our great depression is our lives, weve been all raised by television to believe that one day wed all be millionaires and movie gods and rock stars, but we wont and were slowly learning that fact. and were very very pissed off." - Author: Chuck Palahniuk

"These days, though, tolerance means that you accept the other persons views as being true or legitimate.

Quotes About Unwoven

"And so when you have lost everything, no more roads, no direction, no fixed signs, no ground, no thoughts able to resist other thoughts, when you are lost, beside yourself, and you continue getting lost, when you become the panicky movement of getting lost, then, thats when, where you are unwoven weft, flesh that lets strangeness come through, defenseless being, without resistance, without batten, without skin, inundated with otherness, its in these breathless times that writings traverse you, songs of an unheard-of purity flow through you, addressed to no one, they well up, surge forth, from the throats of your unknown inhabitants, these are the cries that death and life hurl in their combat." - Author: Hélène Cixous

Quotes About Motivating Others

"There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life." - Author: John Lennon

Pure hunger darkened those chocolate-brown eyes. "Kiss me." - Author: Katie McGarry
