Isabel Belmonte Quotes

"Quien quiera hacer de Rembrandt un pensador, un rebelde enfrentado a su época, al encontrarse ante estas obras maestras deberá admitir que la verdad más convincente para definirlo es la furia creadora, una necesidad constante e irreprimible de representar con toda libertad y de consumir la vida en esta obsesión liberadora."

Professor Trevelyan Quotes

"If woman had no existence save in the fiction written by men, one would imagine her a person of the utmost importance (...); as great as a man, some think even greater. But this is woman in fiction. In fact, as Professor Trevelyan points out [in his History of England], she was locked up, beaten and flung about the room."

Quotes About Giving Up On Him

"Archie wasnt waiting for her at the attic. She didnt consider that. He wasprobably giving her time to set and collect a trap, about a week or so as she guessed, a testing period. He couldnt trust her just yet, but she could tell that there was also more to it. He needed to distance himself, from her, because he was afraid to love her. That was it. Loving her was his flaw, weakness, and he could not have a weakness, not while at war. He wouldnt show up, not for some time. She knew that. The longer it would take for him to come back, the more he loved her." - Author: Perie Wolford

Quotes About Chapters In A Book

"An Afternoon in the StacksClosing the book, I find I have left my headinside. It is dark in here, but the chapters opentheir beautiful spaces and give a rustling sound,words adjusting themselves to their meaning.Long passages open at successive pages. An echo,continuous from the title onward, humsbehind me. From in here the world looms,a jungle redeemed by these linked sentencescarved out when an author traveled and a readerkept the way open. When this book endsI will pull it inside-out like a sockand throw it back in the library. But the rumorof it will haunt all that follows in my life.A candleflame in Tibet leans when I move." - Author: William Edgar Stafford

Quotes About High Vibrations

"Hell in life indicates a state of suffering, of agony, of torture (by others, by circumstances, or by ourselves), and of insipid colors and little joy. Hell is a heavy vibration that drags us spiraling down from the highest to the lowest, darkest vibrations.." - Author: Jacqueline Ripstein

Quotes About Divine Retribution

"Mark Spitz had met plenty of the divine-retribution folks over the months. This was their moment; they were umbrella salesmen standing outside a subway entrance in a downpour. The human race deserved the plague, we brought it on ourselves for poisoning the planet, for the Death of God, the calculated brutalities of the global economic system, for driving primordial species to extinction: the entire collapse of values as evidenced by everything from nuclear fission to reality television to alternate side of the street parking. Mark Spitz could only endure these harangues for a minute or two before he split. It was boring.The plague was the plague. You were wearing galoshes, or you werent." - Author: Colson Whitehead

Quotes About Inferno

"...vampiri, esseri di cui non avrei mai considerato lesistenza, avevano annientato la mia famiglia, cambiato la mia vita in modo irreversibile. Vivono tra noi, alcuni pacifici, altri sanguinari e io avevo avuto la sfortuna di imbattermi in uno dei più malvagi e spregevoli della terra, una bestia che senza pietà e senza scrupoli si era divertita a uccidere tutti i miei cari e aveva lasciato me per ultima, facendomi soffrire le pene dellinferno. Per gioco, per errore, ero viva..." - Author: Ornella Calcagnile

Quotes About Barricade

"It often occurs that pride and selfishness are muddled with strength and independence. They are neither equal nor similar; in fact, they are polar opposites. A coward may be so cowardly that he masks his weakness with some false personification of power. He is afraid to love and to be loved because love tends to strip bare all emotional barricades. Without love, strength and independence are prone to losing every bit of their worth; they become nothing more than a fearful, intimidated, empty tent lost somewhere in the desert of self." - Author: Criss Jami

Quotes About Student Activism

Quotes About Brain Overload

"But I guess the nice thing about driving a car is that the physical act of driving itself occupies a good chunk of brain cells that otherwise would be giving you trouble overloading your thinking. New scenery continually erases what came before; memory is lost, shuffled, relabeled and forgotten. Gum is chewed; buttons are pushed; windows are lowered and opened. A fast moving car is the only place where youre legally allowed to not deal with your problems. Its enforced meditation and this is good." - Author: Douglas Coupland
