Pankaj Mishra Quotes

"The hope that fuels the pursuit of endless economic growth – that billions of consumers in India & China will one day enjoy the lifestyles of Europeans and Americans – is as absurd & dangerous a fantasy as anything dreamt up by Al-Qaeda. It condemns the global environment to early destruction & looks set to create reservoirs of nihilistic rage & disappointment among hundreds of millions of have-nots – the bitter outcome of the universal triumph of Western Modernity, which turns the revenge of the East into something darkly ambiguous, and all its victories truly Pyrrhic."

Julia Bascom Quotes

"I have talents that Im not supposed to have: I can tell who crushes on who by how they stand, I can read strides, I can hear the tonal differences between an alto and a soprano singing the same line so clearly that to me they sing entirely different notes, and I can read through the lines and tell when a person doesnt need to be writing at all. That, that is what makes me a snob, because I cannot abide a person putting pen to paper or fingers on keys when they dont need to, when word choice is not as relevant and demanding and essential to them as breathing and syntax is about being correct and not about being evocative."

Quotes About Institutions And Power

"So what exactly is HOW? For many, business and life has always been about the pursuit of What: "What do we do? Whats on the agenda? What do we need to accomplish?" Whats are commodities; they are easily duplicated or reverse-engineered and delivered faster and at a lower cost by someone else. How is a philosophy. Its a way of thinking about individual and organizational behavior. And How we do what we do – our behavior – has become todays greatest source of our advantage. In this world, How is no longer a question, but the answer to what ails us as people, institutions, companies, nations. How we behave, how we consume, how we build trust in our relationships and how we relate to others provides us with the power to not just survive, but thrive and endure." - Author: Dov Seidman

Quotes About Unheard Love

"And yet ...But what if ...I want to do something impossible. Something astounding and unheard of. I want to scrub the moss off the Space Shuttle and fly Julie to the moon and colonise it, or float a capsized cruise ship to some distant island where no one will protest us, or just harness the magic that brings me into the brains of the Living and use it to bring Julie into mine, because its warm in here, its quiet and lovely, and in here we arent an absurd juxtaposition, we are perfect." - Author: Isaac Marion

Quotes About Graduate School

"Whether white, black, Asian, or Latino, American students rarely arrive at college as habitual readers, which means that few of them have more than a nominal connection to the past. It is absurd to speak, as does the academic left, of classic Western texts dominating and silencing everyone but a ruling elite or white males. The vast majority of white students do not know the intellectual tradition that is allegedly theirs any better than black or brown ones do. They have not read its books, and when they do read them, they may respond well, but they will not respond in the way that the academic left supposes. For there is only one ‘hegemonic discourse in the lives of American undergraduates, and that is the mass media. Most high schools cant begin to compete against a torrent of imagery and sound that makes every moment but the present seem quaint, bloodless, or dead." - Author: David Denby

Quotes About Savagery In Heart Of Darkness

"Cold be hand and heart and bone, and cold be sleep under stone: never more to wake on stony bed, never, till the Sun fails and the Moon is dead. In the black wind the stars shall die, and still on gold here let them lie, till the dark lord lifts his hand over dead sea and withered land." - Author: J.R.R. Tolkien

Quotes About Hoops

"It rang and it rand and it rang. I looked at the screen one last time, then at Stuart, and then I reached my arm back and threw the phone as hard as I could (sadly, not that far), and it vanished into the snow. The eight-year-olds, who were truly fascinated with our every move at this point, chased after it. Lost it, I said. Whoops." - Author: Maureen Johnson
