[My Eyes Went Blank, And I Stared Off, And The Music Started. It Was Raining, And The Sun Was Shining At The Same Time, And There Were These Big Bay Windows, And There Was The Blue In The Sky, And The Sun On The Trees, And It Was Drizzling.]

Michele Garber Quotes

"To write freely is to walk a joyous, terrifying, exhilarating path naked through the world of the fully clothed."

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."

Carrie Anne Moss Quotes

"When I did the first Matrix, after it came out, I had a woman come up to me and just thank me for Trinity because she was an action writer. She said she was getting really good opportunities now."

David Denby Quotes

"Whether white, black, Asian, or Latino, American students rarely arrive at college as habitual readers, which means that few of them have more than a nominal connection to the past. It is absurd to speak, as does the academic left, of classic Western texts dominating and silencing everyone but a ruling elite or white males. The vast majority of white students do not know the intellectual tradition that is allegedly theirs any better than black or brown ones do. They have not read its books, and when they do read them, they may respond well, but they will not respond in the way that the academic left supposes. For there is only one ‘hegemonic discourse in the lives of American undergraduates, and that is the mass media. Most high schools cant begin to compete against a torrent of imagery and sound that makes every moment but the present seem quaint, bloodless, or dead."

Anna Wickham Quotes

"The fight ended. For both was victory. For both there was defeat."

H Fischer Hullstrung Quotes

"Through the half-open door in one room of the huts I saw Pastor Bonhoeffer, before taking off his prison garb, kneeling on the floor praying fervently to his God. I was most deeply moved by the way this lovable man prayed, so devout and so certain that God heard his prayer. At the place of execution, he again said a short prayer and then climbed the steps to the gallows, brave and composed. His death ensued after a few seconds. In the almost fifty years that I worked as a doctor, I have hardly ever seen a man die so entirely submissive to the will of God."

Kathleen Kennedy Quotes

"Many great stories are father issues, mother issues or death."

Natalie Clifford Barney Quotes

"Why grab possessions like thieves, or divide them like socialists when you can ignore them like wise men?"

John Sterling Quotes

"There is no lie that a man will not believe; and there is no man who does not believe many lies; and there is no man who believes only lies."

Corliss Lamont Quotes

"The intuition of free will gives us the truth."

Quotes About The Ocean Tide

"We drove out along the coast road. There was the green of the headlands, the white, red-roofed villas, patches of forest, and the ocean very blue with the tide out and the water curling far out along the beach. We drove through Saint Jean de Luz and passed through villages farther down the coast. Back of the rolling country we were going through we saw the mountains we had come over from Pamplona. The road went on ahead. Bill looked at his watch. It was time for us to go back. He knocked on the glass and told the driver to turn around. The driver backed the car out into the grass to turn it. In back of us were the woods, below a stretch of meadow, then the sea." - Author: Ernest Hemingway

Quotes About The Universe And Planets

"Nature  …   has made it impossible for us to have any communication from this earth with the other great bodies of the universe, in our present state; and it is highly possible that he has likewise cut off all communication betwixt the other planets, and betwixt the different systems.… We observe, in all of them, enough to raise our curiosity, but not to satisfy it  …   It does not appear to be suitable to the wisdom that shines throughout all nature, to suppose that we should see so far, and have our curiosity so much raised  …   only to be disappointed at the end  …   This, therefore, naturally leads us to consider our present state as only the dawn or beginning of our existence, and as a state of preparation or probation for farther advancement.…" - Author: Colin Maclaurin

"Men-kind shared this world for but a blink, then, sadly, they became enlightened, found science and religion. The new world of men left little room for magic or the magical creatures of old. Earths first children were driven into the shadows by flame and cold iron, by mans insatiable need of conquest." - Author: Brom

Quotes About Omission Of Truth

"Julias unhappy relationship with the Inland Revenue was due to her omission, during four years of modestly successful practice at the Bar, to pay any income tax. The truth is, I think, that she did not, in her heart of hearts, really believe in income tax. It was a subject which she had studied for examinations and on which she had thereafter advised a number of clients: she naturally did not suppose, in these circumstances, that it had anything to do with real life." - Author: Sarah Caudwell
