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 New Grandson

"He pulled to the side and saw, to his chagrin, that Mrs. Prince of the $2,100 bill at the Star Store was just leaving. She waved at him merrily and grinned and Seth waved back gamely. He wondered how Ralph had reacted to the news that his grandson had managed to screw up running the Star Stores cash register. He could easily imagine Mrs. Princes words: "Ralph, I hate to ask, but can that boy even count?" - Author: Elizabeth George

Quotes About Night Time Sadness

"Bradford paused and his expression shadowed. He pulled her back and held her tight. Whispered, "Dont say it, okay? I know whats coming and I dont want to hear it. Not tonight. Tomorrow maybe, but not tonight." He wasnt talking about Kate Breeden. They both knew that Munroe could only bear so much pain and loss before coming completely undone. She needed time away, time to heal, and she could only do that by returning to who she was: the lone operative, shut down and shut off. Munroe set the glass on an end table, wrapped her arms around his neck, and kissed him. She truly loved him; always would. She smiled and fought back the sadness, glad in a way that she was spared from having to say good-bye, from uttering the words she never wanted to speak—although, in truth, there would never really be a good-bye, because if this was where home was, then like a homing pigeon shed return, and Bradford had to know it, just as he also knew her reasons for leaving." - Author: Taylor Stevens

Quotes About Society And Culture

"We are accused of being obsessed by property. The truth is the other way round. It is the society and culture in question which is so obsessed. Yet to an obsessive his obsession always seems to be of the nature of things and so is not recognized for what it is. The relation between property and art in European culture appears natural to that culture, and consequently if somebody demonstrates the extent of the property interest in a given cultural field, it is said to be a demonstration of his obsession. And this allows the Cultural Establishment to project for a little longer its false rationalized image of itself." - Author: John Berger

Finally he said, They never mentioned Rhuidean to me, Mat.Oh, burn me, he muttered." - Author: Robert Jordan

Quotes About Wisest

"The wisest rule in investment is: when others are selling, buy. When others are buying, sell. Usually, of course, we do the opposite.

Quotes About Books And Cats

"She sorts out her lipstick with a glance in the hall mirror, her free hand simultaneously pointing out rogue books and magazines that suddenly, urgently need me to tidy them. She ducks into her bedroom, rummages noisily, makes a brief appearance in the hallway in what can only be described as a Poncho. No, she says. No. And she balls it up and flings it back through her bedroom door. I want to medicate her. One of those tranquilliser darts they use to bring down big cats would do.- Joel" - Author: Rebecca Sparrow
