Gao Xingjian Quotes

"Its in literature that true life can be found. Its under the mask of fiction that you can tell the truth."

Thomas Burger Quotes

"Why do writers write? Because it isnt there."

David R Hawkins Quotes

"If, as has been said, man learned to lie an hour after he learned to talk, then a phenomenon such as the one were discussing would be the genesis of the most fundamental change in human knowledge since the beginning of society; the transformations it would wreak—in fields from communications to ethics, in our most basic concepts, in every detail of daily existence—would be so profound that it is difficult to even conceive what life would be like in a subsequent new era of truth. The world as we know it would be irrevocably changed, right down to its very roots."

L Jayne Quotes

"In that second, I think about running through that door and going with him. But I know that its not the road Im meant for.Because were both still incapable of love. Were both not ready yet.And I know that Ill miss him. And some nights, Ill cry in my sleep.But for now, Im okay. And thats all that matters.The void in my heart has finally been filled.And as the train moves farther and farther from me on the platform, I can only smile."

"There is a greater fatigue concerning the African problem today than five or 10 years ago. The situation now in Africa is worse today than it was 10 years ago."

Jack Griffen Quotes

"I dont like to ask myself how much time there is left, rather how much time have I had."

Fitzjames Stephen Quotes

"We stand on a mountain pass in the midst of whirling snow and blinding mist, through which we get glimpses now and then of paths which may be deceptive. If we stand still we shall be frozen to death. If we take the wrong road we shall be dashed to pieces. We do not certainly know whether there is any right one. What must we do? Be strong and of a good courage. Act for the best, hope for the best, and take what comes.... If death ends all, we cannot meet death better."

Sherman Austin Quotes

"It was called the Reclaim Guide. It was just a general protest guide that went over security culture and stuff like that. A small portion of that guide dealt with explosives information."

Brian De Palma Quotes

"I hadnt done just a straight-out comedy in a long time, just letting an ensemble do really good character acting, having them carry the movie as in my earlier pictures."

Quotes About Losing Yourself In The Moment

"Sometimes not being in control, not being able to think, just losing yourself in the moment, is the greatest feeling in the world. Its liberating. Its addicting. Its the most powerful high youll ever get. Its a kind of freedom that tastes so sweet on your palate that you cant help but want more each time you have it." - Author: Mia Asher

Quotes About Linguistic Diversity

"Can we reconcile indefinitely these two imperatives: the desire to preserve every individuals special identity and the need for Europeans to be able to communicate with one another all the time and as freely as possible? We cannot leave it to time to solve the dilemma and prevent people from engaging, a few years hence, in bitter and fruitless linguistic conflicts. We know all too well what time will do.The only possible answer is a voluntary policy aimed at strengthening linguistic diversity and based on a simple idea: nowadays everybody obviously needs three languages. The first is his language of identity; the third is English. Between the two we have to promote a third language, freely chosen, which will often but not always be another European language. This will be for everyone the main foreign language taught at school, but it will also be much more than that--the language of the heart, the adopted language, the language you have married, the language you love." - Author: Amin Maalouf

Quotes About Being Healthy Not Skinny

"I try to stay fit and eat healthily, but I am not anxious to starve myself and become unnaturally thin. I dont find that look attractive on women and I dont want to become part of that trend. Its unhealthy and it puts too much pressure on women in general who are being fed this image of the ideal, which it is not. I think America has become obsessed with dieting rather than focusing on eating well, exercising and living a healthy life. I also think that being ultra-thin is not sexy at all. Women shouldnt be forced to conform to unrealistic and unhealthy body images that the media promote. I dont need to be skinny to be sexy." - Author: Scarlett Johansson

Quotes About Expatriate

"I think bourgeois fathers – wing-collar workers in pencil-striped pants, dignified, office-tied fathers, so different from young American veterans of today or from a happy, jobless Russian-born expatriate of fifteen years ago – will not understand my attitude toward our child. Whenever you held him up, replete with his warm formula and grave as an idol, and waited for the postlactic all-clear signal before making a horizontal baby of the vertical one, I used to take part both in your wait and in the tightness of his surfeit, which I exaggerated, therefore rather resenting your cheerful faith in the speedy dissipation of what I felt to be a painful oppression; and when, at last, the blunt little bubble did rise and burst in his solemn mouth, I used to experience a lovely relief as you, with a congratulatory murmur, bent low to deposit him in the white-rimmed twilight of his crib." - Author: Vladimir Nabokov

Quotes About Homemade Lemonade

"There was toast, too, cooked beneath the grill as my father cooked it, with homemade blackberry jam. There was the best cup of tea I ever drunk. By the fireplace, the kitten lapped at a saucer of creamy milk, and purred so loudly I could hear it across the room.I wished I could purr too, I would have purred then." - Author: Neil Gaiman

Quotes About Timepiece

"I know from grim experience that there is a beauty to her inner layers, too. Marvels of symmetry and craftsmanship sealed away inside her like the jewelled movements of a timepiece, fine works of art never meant to be seen." - Author: Isaac Marion

Quotes About Command Responsibility

"Gods command to have dominion over every living thing is a call to service, a test of responsibility, a rule of love, a cooperation with nature, whereas Satans use of force for the sake of getting gain renders the earth uninhabitable. Brigham Youngs views on the environment direct attention to mans responsibility to beautify the earth, to eradicate the influences of harmful substances, and to use restraint, that the earth may return to its paradisiacal glory." - Author: Hugh Nibley

Quotes About Mica

"For tea she went down to see Misses Spink and Forcible. She had three digestive biscuits, a glass of limeade, and a cup of weak tea. The limeade was very interesting. It didnt taste anything like limes. It tasted bright green and vaguely chemical. Coraline liked it enormously. She wished they had it at home."How are your dear mother and father?" asked Miss Spink."Missing," said Coraline. "I havent seen either of them since yesterday. Im on my own. I think Ive probably become a single child family." - Author: Neil Gaiman

Quotes About Skipping

"He puts his arm around me, the lights dancing on his dark skin constantly skipping across to mine, planting a myriad of emotions into each pore as if preparing my heart for tilling." - Author: Poppet
