[Philosophy Is To The Mind Of The Architect As Eyesight To His Steps. The Term 'genius' When Applied To Him Simply Means A Man Who Understands What Others Only Know About. A Poet, Artist Or Architect, Necessarily 'understands' In This Sense And Is Likely, If Not Careful, To Have The Term 'genius' Applied To Him; In Which Case He Will No Longer Be Thought Human, Trustworthy Or Companionable. Whatever May Be His Medium Of Expression He Utters Truth With Manifest Beauty Of Thought. If He Is An Architect, His Building Is Natural. In Him, Philosophy And Genius Live By Each Other, But The Combination Is Subject To Popular Suspicion And Appellation 'genius' Likely To Settle Him--so Far As The Public Is Concerned.]

Quotes About Beach With Friends

"And here I was at the end of my trip, with everything just as fuzzy and unreal as the beginning. It was easier for me to see myself in Ricks lens, riding down to the beach in that cliched sunset, just as it was easier for me to stand with my friends and wave goodbye to the loopy woman with the camels, the itching smell of the dust around us, and in our eyes the feat that we had left so much unsaid. There was an unpronounceable joy and an aching sadness to it. It had all happened too suddenly. I didnt believe this was the end at all. There must be some mistake. Someone had just robbed me of a couple of month in there somewhere. There was not so much an anticlimactic quality about the arrival at the ocean, as the overwhelming feeling that I had somehow misplaced the penultimate scene." - Author: Robyn Davidson

Quotes About Beautiful Sundays

"Beautiful day out there," I said, perching on the stool and crossing my legs. "Its autumn, Sunday, great weather, and crowded everywhere you go. Relaxing indoors like this is the best thing you can do on such a nice day. Its exhausting to get into those crowds. And the air is bad. I mostly do laundry on Sundays—wash the stuff in the morning, hang it out on the roof of my dorm, take it in before the sun goes down, do a good job of ironing it. I dont mind ironing at all. Theres a special satisfaction in making wrinkled things smooth. And Im pretty good at it, too. Of course, I was lousy at it at first. I put creases in everything. After a month of practice, though, I knew what I was doing. So Sunday is my day for laundry and ironing. I couldnt do it today, of course. Too bad: wasted a perfect laundry day." - Author: Haruki Murakami

Quotes About Citizens United

"These examples and many others demonstrate an alarming trend whereby the privacy and dignity of our citizens is being whittled away by sometimes imperceptible steps. Taken individually, each step may be of little consequence.

United States, 385 U.S. 323, 343 (1966) (dissenting)]" - Author: William O. Douglas

Quotes About Erik The Red

"I whispered into his ear, "Erik..."There was no response from him. "Erik." My voice was a little bit firmer.I pushed at his shoulders making sure that my hands were well away from his re-opened wound. He weighed more than I did. I couldnt get out from under him. God, Im stuck inside of him ...like a dog. "Erik."I tried to wriggle out from under him. I grew hard. I stilled horrified as my body took pleasure in this situation. I tried to shift his leg over. I thrust into him. Oh... I thrust again. I was hovering around the panic state but lust was driving all thoughts out of my mind. The more I struggled to free myself... I fucked him.I screwed an unconscious man. What kind of man was I? I couldnt stop. The thwap, thwap sound of me burying my full length inside him hammered at my head. Dont do this... dont do.... nnnngghgghhh. I came deep within him." - Author: Derekica Snake
