[One Of The Saddest Realities Is That We Never Know When Our Lives Are At Their Peak. Only After It Is Over And We Have Some Kind Of Perspective Do We Realize How Good We Had It A Day, A Month, Five Years Ago.]

Evan Fallenberg Quotes

"He can hum the music in his old mans quivering voice, but he prefers it in his head, where it lives on in violins and reedy winds. If he imagines it in rehearsal he can remember every step of his three-minute solo as if he had danced it only yesterday, but he knows, too, that one time, onstage in Berlin, he had not danced it as he had learned it; this much he knows but cannot recreate, could no recreate it even a moment after he had finished dancing it. While dancing he had felt blind to the stage and audience, deaf to the music. He had let his body do what it needed to do, free to expand and contract in space, to soar and spin. So, accordingly, when he tries to remember the way he danced it on stage, he cannot hear the music or feel his feet or get a sense of the audience. He is embryonic, momentarily cut off from the world around him. The three most important minutes of his life, the ones that determined his fate and future, are the three to which he cannot gain access, ever."

Quotes About The King Of The Jungle

"An oceanic expanse of pre-dawn gray white below obscures a checkered grid of Saskatchewan, a snow plain nicked by the dark, unruly lines of woody swales. One might imagine that little is to be seen from a plane at night, but above the clouds the Milky Way is a dense, blazing arch. A full moon often lights the planet freshly, and patterns of human culture, artificially lit, are striking in ways not visible in daylight. One evening I saw the distinctive glows of cities around Delhi diffused like spiral galaxies in a continuous deck of stratus clouds far below us. In Algeria and on the Asian steppes, wind-whipped pennants of gas flared. The jungle burned in incandescent spots in Malaysia and Brazil. One clear evening at 20,000 feet over Manhattan, I could see, it seemed, every streetlight halfway to the end of Long Island. A summer lightning bolt unexpectedly revealed thousands of bright dots on the ink-black veld of the northern Transvaal: sheep." - Author: Barry Lopez

Quotes About Getting Rid Of Negativity

"Progress in science and technology is real, but it builds on past truths without rejecting them. Computers dont have to be re-invented in order to keep getting better; innovations expand what they already do. Knowledge accumulates, so it can increase. Scientists and engineers know this, but artists, authors, and philosophers keep trying to start over from ground zero in the humanities. Thus, they dont really progress—they become primitive." - Author: Gene Edward Veith Jr.

Quotes About Susah

"Mereka yang pernah menolong orang-orang yang kesusahan, menginsafi bahwa memberi lebih baik daripada menerima." - Author: Epicurus

Quotes About Word Formation

"One more word about giving instruction as to what the world ought to be. Philosophy in any case always comes on the scene too late to give it. As the thought of the world, it appears only when actuality is already there cut and dried after its process of formation has been completed... When philosophy paints its grey in grey, then has a shape of life grown old. By philosophys grey in grey it cannot be rejuvenated but only understood. The owl of Minerva spreads its wings only with the falling of the dusk." - Author: Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

Quotes About Comprendre

"Je peux exécrer ce shah, mais ce nest pas contre lui que je me bats. Triompher dun despote ne peut être le but ultime, je me bats pour que les Persans aient conscience dêtre des hommes libres, des fils dAdam, comme nous disons ici, quils aient foi en eux-mêmes, en leur force, quils retrouvent une place dans le monde daujourdhui. Cest ce que jai voulu réussir ici. Cette ville a rejeté la tutelle du monarque et des chefs religieux, elle a défié les Puissances, partout elle a suscité la solidarité et ladmiration des hommes de coeur. Les gens de Tabriz étaient sur le point de gagner, mais on ne veut pas les laisser gagner, on a trop peur de leur exemple, on veut les humilier, cette population fière devra se prosterner devant les soldats du tsar pour obtenir son pain. Toi qui es né libre dans un pays libre, tu devrais comprendre." - Author: Amin Maalouf

Quotes About Mystery And Suspense

"...there was apparent in all a sort of anxiety, a softening of the heart, and a consciousness of some great, unfathomable mystery being accomplished... the most solemn mystery in the world was being accomplished. Evening passed, night came on. And the feeling of suspense and softening of the heart before the unfathomable did not wane, but grew more intense. No one slept." - Author: Leo Tolstoy

Quotes About Cada

"tu e todo o mundo têm noção de que há ou deverá haver uma existência para além de nós. Qual seria o sentido de eu ter sido criada, se estivesse contida apenas em mim mesma? Os grandes desgostos que tive foram os desgostos de Heathcliff, e eu senti cada um deles desde o início: o que me faz viver é ele. Se tudo o mais acabasse, e ele permanecesse, eu continuaria a existir; e, se tudo o mais permanecesse e ele fosse aniquilado, o universo transformar-se-ia um imenso desconhecido. O meu amor por Linton é como a folhagem das florestas. O tempo transformá-lo-á, tenho a certeza, da mesma forma que o Inverno transforma o arvoredo. O meu amor por Heathcliff lembra as rochas eternas: proporciona uma alegria pouco visível, mas é necessário. Nelly, eu sou Heathcliff!"" - Author: Emily Brontë
