Alan Partridge Quotes

"Id spend hours in HMVs, Virgin Megastores and second-hand record shops staffed by greasy-haired 40-year-olds dressed as 20-year-olds, listening to contemporary music of every genre – Britrock, heavy maiden, gang rap, brakebeat. And I came to a startling but unshakeable conclusion: no genuinely good music has been created since 1988."

Kevin Dutton Quotes

"Da wir heute jedoch in einer zunehmend säkularisierten Gesellschaft leben und das virtuelle Universum sich immer weiter ausdehnt, haben wir es mit einer völlig anderen Spezies zu tun: mit Popstars und Schauspielern sowie Medien- und Videospielmonguln, die statt Würde auszustrahlen, diese nun auf dem Altar der kreativen Schizophrenie opfern."

Phillip Cary Quotes

"We typically misunderstand whats wrong about consumerism. Its not that it makes us love material things too much. To be a good consumer, you have to desire to get lots of things, but you must not love any of them too much once you have them. Consumerism needs children who do not stay attached to their toys for very long and learn to expect the next round of presents as soon as possible. When consumerism succeeds, our attachments are shallow, easily broken, so we can move on to the next thing were supposed to get. Being a good consumer means desiring new things, not cherishing old ones. And the new things youre supposed to desire are not always material things. Spirituality is now a consumerist enterprise, too."

Quotes About Losing Your Looks

"Pitiful is the person who is afraid of taking risks. Perhaps this person will never be disappointed or disillusioned; perhaps she wont suffer the way people do when they have a dream to follow. But when that person looks back – and at some point everyone looks back – she will hear her heart saying, "What have you done with the miracles that God planted in your days? What have you done with the talents God bestowed on you? You buried yourself in a cave because you were fearful of losing those talents. So this is your heritage; the certainty that you wasted your life." - Author: Paulo Coelho
