Henry Mulisch Quotes

"In a world full of war, famine, oppression, deceit, monotony, what—apart from the eternal innocence of animals—offers an image of hope? A mother with a newborn child in her arms? The child may end up as a murderer or a murder victim, so that the hopeful image is a prefiguration of a pietà: a mother with her newly dead child on her lap."

Amanda Sington Williams Quotes

"He watched the newly arrived commuters as they stepped into the carriage, pushed their way down the tube, the odours from their damp clothes mingling, giving off varying degrees of mustiness: London grime, or smoke from airless offices. A woman wearing a blue swing coat glanced along the carriage, casting around for an empty seat. Her pale skin, the searching green eyes, reminded him of Emma. Briefly, he felt his breath catch; he stood, clambered back over his neighbour and indicated for her to take his seat. And so his mind stayed with Emma when he knew he should be working out a strategy for telling Dorothy of his news. But Emma was never far away; like the glitter balls in dance halls, she would slowly rotate in his memory, different facets reappearing, as the hues changed in her auburn hair."

Amelie Nothomb Quotes

"De trois à dix-huit ans, les Japonais étudient comme des possédés. De vingt-cinq ans à la retraite, ils travaillent comme des forcenés. De dix-huit à vingt-cinq ans, ils sont très conscients de vivre une parenthèse unique : il leur est donné de sépanouir. Même ceux qui ont réussi le terrible examen dentrée de lune des onze universités sérieuses peuvent un peu souffler : seule la sélection première importait vraiment"

Quotes About Brunswick

"We dressed ourselves up as Gauguin pictures and careered round Crosby Hall. Mrs. Whitehead was scandalized. She said that Vanessa and I were practically naked. My mothers ghost was invoked once more...to deplore the fact that I had taken a house in Brunswick Square and had asked young men to share it...Stories began to circulate about parties at which we all undressed in public. Logan Pearsall Smith told Ethel Sands that he knew for a fact that Maynard had copulated with Vanessa on a sofa in the middle of the drawing room. It was a heartless, immoral, cynical society it was said; we were abandoned women and our friends were the most worthless of young men." - Author: Virginia Woolf

Quotes About Covey

"Coveys solution is to prioritise work that is important but not urgent (the blue square in thediagram). Though this is hard to do on any given day, it is the only way to ensure you are makingprogress towards your own goals and dreams, instead of merely reacting to what other peoplethrow at you. And over time, the more you are dealing with important things before they becomeurgent, the fewer ‘urgent and important tasks you will have to deal with.The most obvious way to do this is to work on your own projects first every day, even if its onlyfor half an hour. Whatever interruptions come along later, you will at least have the satisfaction ofhaving made some progress towards your own goals." - Author: Mark McGuinness

Quotes About Life In Sweden

"Countries with a high percentage of nonbelievers are among the freest, most stable, best-educated, and healthiest nations on earth. When nations are ranked according to a human-development index, which measures such factors as life expectancy, literacy rates, and educational attainment, the five highest-ranked countries -- Norway, Sweden, Australia, Canada, and the Netherlands -- all have high degrees of nonbelief. Of the fifty countires at the bottom of the index, all are intensly religious. The nations with the highest homicide rates tend to be more religious; those with the greatest levels of gender equality are the least religious. These associations say nothing about whether atheism leads to positive social indicators or the other way around. But the idea that atheists are somehow less moral, honest, or trustworthy have been disproven by study after study." - Author: Greg Graffin
