Robert Stone Quotes

"There were icons of the Magdalen on the walls and paintings in the Western manner, all kitsch, trash. Mary M., Lucas thought, half hypnotized by the chanting in the room beside him; Mary Moe, Jane Doe, the girl from Migdal in Galilee turned hooker in the big city. The original whore with the heart of gold. Used to be a nice Jewish girl, and the next thing you know, shes fucking the buckos of the Tenth Legion Fratensis, fucking the pilgrims whod made their sacrifice at the Temple and were ready to party, the odd priest and Levite on the sly."Maybe she was smart and funny. Certainly always on the lookout for the right guy to take her out of the life. Like a lot of whores, she tended towards religion. So along comes Jesus Christ, Mr. Right with a Vengeance, Mr. All Right Now! Fixes on her his hot, crazy eyes and shes all, Anything, Ill do anything. Ill wash your feet with my hair. You dont even have to fuck me."

Quotes About Bad Smells

"I dont like this," he complained. Hed been complaining since Id scooted off the chaise ten minutes earlier, leaving him on it."Just a little longer.I know its not your sofa, but its not that bad."He grimaced. "It smells like wet dog. But what I meant was that I dont think I like posing. How do I know youre not going to give me a beer gut or a third eye?""Ive always thought a third eye would be pretty useful."

Quotes About Forbidden Desire

"Bobos are uncomfortable with universal moral laws that purport to regulate pleasure. Bobos prefer more prosaic self-controlled regimes. The things that are forbidden are unhealthy or unsafe. The things that are encouraged are enriching or calorie burning. In other words, we regulate our carnal desires with health codes instead of moral codes." - Author: David Brooks

Quotes About Quantum Tunneling

"Todays theater-goer must live in dread of walking into a theater and discovering that some classic work has been given a modernized, socially relevant setting. Oedipus gouges his eyes with a spoon at a 1950s malt shop; Macbeth napalms Banquo in Viet Nam, Julius Caesar dies in Dallas in 1963. More and more, American theater is coming to resemble a season of Quantum Leap." - Author: Reduced Shakespeare Company

Quotes About Castro Che

"This pursuit of security in the past, this attempt to find a haven in a fixed dogma and an organizational hierarchy as substitutes for creative thought and praxis is bitter evidence of how little many revolutionaries are capable of ‘revolutionizing themselves and things, much less of revolutionizing society as a whole. The deep-rooted conservatism of the Peoples Labor Party ‘revolutionaries is almost painfully evident; the authoritarian leader and hierarchy replace the patriarch and the school bureaucracy; the discipline of the Movement replaces the discipline of bourgeois society; the authoritarian code of political obedience replaces the state; the credo of ‘proletarian morality replaces the mores of puritanism and the work ethic. The old substance of exploitative society reappears in new forms, draped in a red flag, decorated by portraits of Mao (or Castro or Che) and adorned with the little ‘Red Book and other sacred litanies." - Author: Murray Bookchin

Quotes About Indulge
