"Taxi Driver wasnt autobiographical in terms of the actual events, but I did draw on my own mental state."

Wendell Willkie Quotes

"I have noticed, with much distress, the excessive wartime activity of the investigating bureaus of Congress and the administration, with their impertinent and indecent searching out of the private lives and the past political beliefs of individuals."

Andrew Levkoff Quotes

"It is we who move through time, not the reverse. When we walk beyond any one of lifes instants, it becomes nothing more than a receding milestone. We can look back, but we cannot retrace our steps. The past remains stationary, while we are doomed to move ever onwards. To do otherwise is against nature."

Audrey Bell Quotes

"What? Its ridiculous. Control your emotions. Can you imagine if criminals went around saying they fell into hatred or jealousy and thats why they killed four people or robbed the bank? We act like love is this uncontrollable thing. But when it comes to anger and all of that ugly stuff, were expected to control it. Were supposed to handle those emotions without hurting anyone. But throw out the word ‘love and everyone thinks all of the rules should go right out the window and who can help it if someone gets hurt? Its absurd and its degrading, honestly, that we expect people to control themselves except for when it comes to wanting to sleep with someone."

Quotes About Guys You Really Like

"I wasnt really geeky. In terms of the high school hierarchy, I was very much in the middle ground.

I wasnt really picked on or anything like that." - Author: Callan McAuliffe

Quotes About Sadism

"La guerre, cest la discipline. La sujétion maximale. Lesclavage. Cest lune des situations où lhomme est le plus soumis à lhomme et a le moins dissues pour y échapper. Il est empoigné. Réquisitionné. Ballotté par des ordres mécaniques. Objet dun sadisme sans réplique. Exposé à lhumiliation ou au feu. Numéroté. Broyé. Astreint à la corvée. Pris dans des mouvements collectifs très lents, trè...s obscurs, parfaitement indéchiffrables, qui, au plus naturellement rebelle, ne laissent dautre choix que de se plier. La guerre cest la circonstance, par excellence, où joue ce pouvoir de laisser vivre et de faire mourir qui est, selon les bons philosophes, le propre du pouvoir absolu. Lhomme de guerre cest le dernier des hommes, cest-à-dire lesclave absolu.(Réflexions sur la Guerre, le Mal et la fin de lHistoire)" - Author: Bernard Henri Lévy

Quotes About Bridge Game

"A young girl, a freshman, I met in a bar in Cambridge my junior year at Harvard told me early one fall that "Life is full of endless possibilities." I tried valiantly nog to choke on the beer nuts I was chewing while she gushed this kidney stone of wisdom, and I calmly washed them down with the rest of a Heineken, smiled and concentrated on the dart game that was going on in the corner. Needless to say, she did not live to see her sophomore year.That winter, her body was found floating in the Charles River, decapitated, her head hung from a tree on the bank, her hair knotted around a low-hanging branch, three miles away." - Author: Bret Easton Ellis

Quotes About Loaning Money

"In the days when money was backed by its face value in silver or gold, there were limits to how much wealth could flow around the world. Today, its virtual money that the bank lends into existence on a computer screen. "And unless the economy continually expands, there is no new flow of money to pay back that money, plus interest." . . . "As it stands now, if banks start loaning money more slowly than they collect debts, the quantity of money in the economy goes down, and its impossible to pay back debts. So we get defaults on houses . . . our economy plunges into misery and unemployment. Under our current monetary system, the only alternative to that is endless growth. So one absolute thing we have to change is the whole nature of the monetary system. . . . we deny banks the right to create money." . . . Theres a challenge with that solution, he admits. "Youre trying to take the right to create wealth away from some of the wealthiest people on the planet." - Author: Alan Weisman

Quotes About Inspirational Cliffs

"This is poetry, but it is not delicate and fragile, a placid ocean beneath a Bible vese on an inspirational poster. This poetry had testicles. Its rougher than a rodeo. Which is why the cliffs are crowded with spectators" - Author: N.D. Wilson

Quotes About Meddlers

"Son, never trust a man who doesnt drink because hes probably a self-righteous sort, a man who thinks he knows right from wrong all the time. Some of them are good men, but in the name of goodness, they cause most of the suffering in the world. Theyre the judges, the meddlers. And, son, never trust a man who drinks but refuses to get drunk. Theyre usually afraid of something deep down inside, either that theyre a coward or a fool or mean and violent. You cant trust a man whos afraid of himself. But sometimes, son, you can trust a man who occasionally kneels before a toilet. The chances are that he is learning something about humility and his natural human foolishness, about how to survive himself. Its damned hard for a man to take himself too seriously when hes heaving his guts into a dirty toilet bowl." - Author: James Crumley
