Quotes About Phenomenological Realism

"On top of the good was a hideously ugly bronze statue in the modern style. The statue was of a couple, dressed in togas, wrapped in an embrace. Cupped in their hands was a piece of fruit. I couldnt be sure, because realism did not appear to be the artists specialty, but it looked to me like a pomegranate."Good God," Frank, whod trailed after us, said when he saw the statue. "Rectors even sicker than any of us thought. Ive never wished I was blind before, like Graves, but I do now, because then Id never have to look at that again.""Frank," John said, his gaze on my face. "Be quiet.""But what do they do in here?" Frank wanted to know. "Have picnics with their dead relatives and admire their ugly art?" - Author: Meg Cabot

We would walk into any café and feel the wonderful chaos of it, ordering Pernod or Rhum St James until we were beautifully blurred and happy to be there together." - Author: Paula McLain
