Ambroise Vollard Quotes

"After the great Impressionists, and again after Van Gogh and Gaugin, people said, Painting is now played out. But Bonnard, Maurice Denis, Roussel and Vuillard appeared and gave them the lie. We were wrong, said the croakers, but this at any rate is the end. Yet to refute them, and to prove that there is no end to art, still another generation of painters sprang up."

Quotes About Dried Flowers

"Its there. The white rose among the dried flowers in the vase. Shriveled and fragile, but holding on to that unnatural perfection cultivated in Snows greenhouse. I grab the vase, stumble down to the kitchen, and throw its contents into the embers. As the flowers flare up, a burst of blue flame envelops the rose and devours it. Fire beats roses again." - Author: Suzanne Collins

Quotes About Benefits

"The vocation of psychotherapy confers a few unexpected fringe benefits on its practitioners, and the following is one of them. It impels participation in a process that our modern world has all but forgotten: sitting in a room with another person for hours at a time with no purpose in mind but attending. As you do so, another world expands and comes alive to your senses--a world governed by forces that were old before humanity began." - Author: Thomas Lewis

Quotes About Desires Of The Flesh

"Most of the world is either asleep or dead. The religious people are, for the most part, asleep. The irreligious are dead. Those who are asleep are divided into two classes, like the Virgins in the parable, waiting for the Bridegrooms coming. The wise have oil in their lamps. That is to say they are detached from themselves and from the cares of the world, and they are full of charity. They are indeed waiting for the Bridegroom, and they desire nothing else but His coming, even though they may fall asleep while waiting for Him to appear. But the others are not only asleep: they are full of other dreams and other desires. Their lamps are empty because they have burned themselves out in the wisdom of the flesh and in their own vanity. When He comes, it is too late for them to buy oil. They light their lamps only after He has gone. So they fall asleep again, with useless lamps, and when they wake up they trim them to investigate, once again, the matters of a dying world." - Author: Thomas Merton

Quotes About Symposium

"I attended a symposium, an event named after a fifth century (B.C.) Athenian drinking party in which nonnerds talked about love; alas, there was no drinking, and mercifully, nobody talked about love." - Author: Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Quotes About Being Sentenced To Death

"When I arrived at the house in the suburbs that night I seriously contemplated suicide for the first time in my life. But as I thought about it, the idea became exceedingly tiresome, and I finally decided it would be a ludicrous business. I had an inherent dislike of admitting defeat. Moreover, I told myself, theres no need for me to take such decisive action myself, not when Im surrounded by such a bountiful harvest of death—death in an air raid, death at ones post of duty, death in the military service, death on the battlefield, death from being run over, death from disease—surely my name has already been entered in the list for one of these: a criminal who has been sentenced to death does not commit suicide. No—no matter how I considered, the season was not auspicious for suicide. Instead I was waiting for something to do me the favor of killing me. And this, in the final analysis, is the same as to say that I was waiting for something to do me the favor of keeping me alive." - Author: Yukio Mishima

Quotes About Faq

"Sunt delicta tamen, quibus ignovisse velumis.Nam neque chorda sonum reddit, quem vult manus et mens,Poscentique gravem persaepe remittit acutum;Nec semper feriet, quodcumque minabitur, arcus.Verum, ubi plura nitent in carmine, non ego paucisOffendar maculis, quas aut incuria fudit,Aut humana parum cavit natura. Quid ergo est?Ut scriptor si peccat idem librarius usque,Quamvis est monitus, venia caret, et citharoedusRidetur, chorda qui semper oberrat eadem.Ekzistojne dhe gabimet qe gjithsesi duhen falur; ngase as dora dhe mendja se jep perhere tingullin e deshiruar,dhe atij qe kerkon zerin e trashe, ia jep te hollin,e as harku se qellon perhere cakun e vendosur pezull.Vertete, kur ne poezine shkelqejne shume gjera, muasme pengojne njollat e pakta; ato shfaqen nga pakujdesia o nga natyra njerezore. Prandaj cfare duhet bere?Kur si shkrimtari gabon edhe pershkruesidhe pas verejtjes se thene skerkon falje fare,ashtu dhe kitaristi do te perqeshet, kur te njejtit tel i bie gabimisht." - Author: Horace
