Morris L West Quotes

"Look at yourself! Youre a priest. You know damn well that if I were setting out to make a girl at this moment instead of young Paolo, youd take an entirely different view. Youd disapprove, sure! Youd read me a lecture on fornication and all the rest. But you wouldnt be too unhappy. Id be normal... according to nature! But I am not made like that. God didnt make me like that. But do I need love the less? Do I need satisfaction less? Have I less right to live in contentment because somewhere along the line the Almighty slipped a cog in creation?... Whats your answer to that Meredith? Whats your answer for me? Tie a knot in myself and take up badminton and wait till they make me an angel in heaven, where they dont need this sort of thing any more? Im lonely! I need love like the next man! My sort of love!"

Quotes About Paint

"NOVEL, n. A short story padded. A species of composition bearing the same relation to literature that the panorama bears to art. As it is too long to be read at a sitting the impressions made by its successive parts are successively effaced, as in the panorama. Unity, totality of effect, is impossible; for besides the few pages last read all that is carried in mind is the mere plot of what has gone before. To the romance the novel is what photography is to painting. Its distinguishing principle, probability, corresponds to the literal actuality of the photograph and puts it distinctly into the category of reporting; whereas the free wing of the romancer enables him to mount to such altitudes of imagination as he may be fitted to attain; and the first three essentials of the literary art are imagination, imagination and imagination. The art of writing novels, such as it was, is long dead everywhere except in Russia, where it is new. Peace to its ashes ā€” some of which have a large sale." - Author: Ambrose Bierce

Quotes About Uncouth

"This much is already known: for every sensible line of straightforward statement, there are leagues of senseless cacophonies, verbal jumbles and incoherences. (I know of an uncouth region whose librarians repudiate the vain and superstitious custom of finding a meaning in books and equate it with that of finding a meaning in dreams or in the chaotic lines of ones palm . . . They admit that the inventors of this writing imitated the twenty-five natural symbols, but maintain that this application is accidental and that the books signify nothing in themselves. This dictum, we shall see, is not entirely fallacious.)" - Author: Jorge Luis Borges

"She made a slow turn as she loosened her ponytail and shook her head; her hair streamed down her back like a glossy black waterfall. She finished her spin.

Id know those moonlit eyes anywhere.She ran and grabbed hold of the stage right pole. Her feet left the floor as she wrapped her legs around the brass and spun.What in gods name is she doing working in a fucking strip club?" - Author: Elizabeth Morgan

Quotes About Funny Income Tax

"Meeting writers is always so disappointing. I got over wanting to meet live writers quite a long time ago.

Le Guin

Quotes About Voter Apathy

"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the worlds greatest civilizations has been 200 years. These nations have progressed through this sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; From spiritual faith to great courage; From courage to liberty; From liberty to abundance; From abundance to selfishness; From selfishness to apathy; From apathy to dependence; From dependence back into bondage." - Author: Alexander Fraser Tytler

Quotes About Remarkable Friendship

"So the challenge, as you contemplate your next opportunity to be boring or remarkable, is to answer these two questions: (1) "If I get criticized for this, will I suffer any measurable impact? Will I lose my job, get hit upside the head with a softball bat, or lose important friendships?" If the only side effect of the criticism is that you will feel bad about the criticism, then you have to compare that bad feeling with the benefits youll get from actually doing something worth doing. Being remarkable is exciting, fun, profitable, and great for your career. Feeling bad wears off.And then, once youve compared the bad feeling and the benefits, and youve sold yourself on taking the remarkable path, answer this one: (2) How can I create something that critics will criticize?" - Author: Seth Godin

Quotes About Ecclesiastes

"That mortal man who hath more of joy than sorrow in him, that mortal man cannot be true ā€” not true, or undeveloped. With books the same. The truest of all men was the Man of Sorrows, and the truest of all books is Solomons, and Ecclesiastes is the fine hammered steel of woe. "All is vanity." ALL. This wilful world hath not got hold of unchristian Solomons wisdom yet." - Author: Herman Melville
