Vanessa Wu Quotes

"Perhaps writing a story or a novel was not something that should be done for money, or to win praise, but for the sheer sensual pleasure of it. I liked that idea. It made me want to write lots of stories, to give myself that pleasure."

Michael J Kannengieser Quotes

"The average author hawks their books at many events. They are vigilant promoters, waiting for a breakthrough. They do this, or else watch their novel wither away."

Harold Edmund Stearns Quotes

"When distinction of any kind, even intellectual distinction, is somehow resented as a betrayal of the American spirit of equal opportunity for all, the result must be just this terror of individualistic impulses setting us apart, either above or below our neighbours; just this determination to obey without questioning and to subscribe with passion to the conventions and traditions. The dilemma becomes a very real one: How can this sense of democratic equality be made compatible with respect for exceptional personalities or great minds? How can democracy, as we understand it today, with its iron repression of the free spirit, its monotonous standardisation of everything, learn to cherish an intellectual aristocracy without which any nation runs the risk of becoming a civilisation of the commonplace and the second-rate?"

Christopher Morley Quotes

Quotes About Stepchild

"The phrase Love one another is so wise. By loving one another, we invest in each other and in ourselves. Perhaps someday, when we need someone to care for us, it may not come from the person we expect, but from the person we least expect. It may be our sons or daughter-in-laws, our neighbors, friends, cousins, stepchildren, or stepparents whose love for us has assigned them to the honorable, yet dangerous position of caregiver." - Author: Peggi Speers

Quotes About Doomed Love

"Coup de foudre; perhaps it was real. One went from believing, when twenty, that it was the one kind of love that was real, to believing, once closer to forty, that it was not only fragile but false--the inferior, infantile, doomed love of twenty-year-olds. Somewhere between, the norms of one culture of love were discarded, and those of the other assumed. When did it happen, at midnight of ones thirty-first birthday? On the variable day that, while browsing a grocery-store aisle with a man, the repeating refrain of the rest of ones life for the first time resounds in ones ear?" - Author: Susan Choi

Quotes About Being Best Friends Again

"I opened my louvres and looked at Comfort, walking in the heavy rain, crying bitterly. I heard mom saying, Anywhere you want to go, you can, but dont come back again to this house. Comfort was beautiful, but her stealing attributes brought reproach on her and painted her beauty with dark impressions. I looked at her, walking barefooted on the muddy ground congested with rain water." - Author: Michael Bassey Johnson

Quotes About Extranjero

"Escribo y escribiré toda mi vida en español; el francés lo guardo para la correspondencia cuando tengo que escribirle a algún francés. El español es mi lengua de escritor y hoy más que nunca creo que la defensa del español como lengua forma parte de una larga lucha en América Latina que abarca muchos otros temas y muchas otras razones de lucha. La defensa del idioma es absolutamente capital. Si hay un espectáculo penoso es el de latinoamericanos que al cabo de muy poco tiempo en un país extranjero permiten que su idioma se degrade y el segundo idioma comience a entrar; hay una excepción a esto que estoy diciendo y es el caso de las gentes de un nivel mínimo de educación, porque no se les puede exigir de ninguna manera que tengan un control crítico de su lenguaje." - Author: Julio Cortázar

Quotes About Sa Maganda

"Kaya nga sa fairy tale, lagi na lang sinasabing and they live happily ever after kasi hindi maikwento ano talaga ang naging ending. Nung magpakasal ang prinsesang maganda sa isinumpang prinsipe na naging palaka na bumalik uli sa pagiging gwapo ng prinsipe(matapos mahalikan), hindi pa naman ending yun. Kalagitnaan pa lang ng buhay nila yun. Ilan ang anak nila? Nanganak kaya ang prinsesa ng butete? Ano ang nangyari sa kanila nung tumanda sila? Sino ang unang namatay? kahit nga ang buhay sa mundo, matapos di umano ang katapusan ng mundo, magsisimula uli ang tao sa bagong paraiso. Wala pa ring closure." - Author: Eros S. Atalia

Quotes About Bygone Days

"Have you really not noticed, then, that here of all places, in this private, personal solitude that surrounds me, I have turned to you? All the memories of my youth speak to me as I walk, just as the sea shells crunch under my feet on the beach. The crash of every wave awakens far-distant reverberations within me... I hear the rumble of bygone days, and in my mind the whole endless series of old passions surges forward like the billows. I remember my spasms, my sorrows, gusts of desire that whistled like wind in the rigging, and vast vague longings that swirled in the dark like a flock of wild gulls in a stormcloud... On whom should I lean, if not on you? My weary mind turns for refreshment to the thought of you as a dusty traveler might sink onto a soft and grassy bank..." - Author: Gustave Flaubert

Quotes About Having A Business Plan

"Every man having been born free and master of himself, no one else may under any pretext whatever subject him without his consent. To assert that the son of a slave is born a slave is to assert that he is not born a man." - Author: Jean Jacques Rousseau

Quotes About Being Well Balanced

"I understood. Being from a place where a few facts are enough to define you, where a few habits can fill a life, causes a unique kind of shame. Wed had small lives, populated by a longing from something more substantial than dirt roads and small dreams. So wed come here, where life needed no elaboration and others would tell us who to be." - Author: Kevin Powers
