Gherasim Luca Quotes

"The streets were full of destruction and rubble, and this town Id never liked, with its stupid people, stupid streets, and stupid houses, was now unrecognisable, now it had a truly unique beauty, and scantily-clad women traversed it like ghosts. A twelve-storey building in the city centre had totally collapsed. Caught up in her bed sheets, a woman who had fallen from the top floor found herself alive and alone on the pavement. Her husband had been thrown out of bed. From now on she would sleep forever, since reality was now as extraordinary as dreams."

Eric Kraft Quotes

"A statement about luck is a statement about the mind, not about the world... We find what seems to have been the lucky break or the big mistake, and so we thank our lucky stars that we took the road less traveled or curse the fates that sent that little wavelet that flipped us on our backs. With hindsight, we seem to see that everything preceding the pivotal point was leading up to it, tending toward it, and that everything following it grew from it.To any observer outside the lucky one himself, however, luck is simply chance. Chance is neutral."

Giuseppe Garibaldi Quotes

"I offer neither pay, nor quarters, nor food; I offer only hunger, thirst, forced marches, battles and death. Let him who loves his country with his heart, and not merely with his lips, follow me."

Margaret Laurence Quotes

"Privacy is a privilege not granted to the aged or the young."

Alan Cole Quotes

"Self distrust is good, but only if it leads to trust in God. Otherwise it ends as spiritual paralysis, inability and unwillingness to undertake any course of action."

Rufus Wainwright Quotes

"Ive developed into quite a swan. Im one of those people that will probably look better and better as I get older until I drop dead of beauty."

Kodi Rammurthy Naidu Quotes

"Now let me ask my countrymen, Have you ever granted a moments thought to this very vital problem in the building of our nation ? Have you devised any practical remedies to combat this evil ? Will you, my countrymen, go on without making any intelligent effort to lay the axe at the root of this weaknss and misery ? Will you allow the noted chivalry and the noble hardihood of the Indian to sink into oblivion ? Will you make it a thing entirely of the past ? I implore you, I beseech you, I exhort you my brethren in the name of all that is dearest to you to shake off the lethargy, to show to this world that you were sleeping the sleep of lions only, to rise again with redoubled energy and courage to take the work of rebuilding your nation in right earnest."

Brad Pitt Quotes

"Let us be the ones who say we do not accept that a child dies every three seconds simply because he does not have the drugs you and I have. Let us be the ones to say we are not satisfied that your place of birth determines your right for life. Let us be outraged, let us be loud, let us be bold."

Rupert Murdoch Quotes

Quotes About Malafede

"Viviamo nellattesa permanente di un estraneo a cui consegnarci mani e piedi. A cui saremmo capaci di sacrificare gli affetti più cari, se necessario. Anche quando siamo in malafede. Anche se sappiamo benissimo che al momento opportuno ci tireremo indietro attaccandoci alla più ignobile delle scuse. Conta però il momento in cui siamo disposti a tutto. E tutto significa, papale papale, tutto." - Author: Diego De Silva

Quotes About Ear Piercing

"As if I feared that the scope of what I could feel and imagine was being quietly limited by the world within a world, the internet. The things outside of the web were becoming further from me, and everything inside it seemed piercingly relevant. The blogs of strangers had to be read daily, and people nearby who had no web presence were becoming almost cartoonlike, as if they were missing a dimension. It was just happening, like time, like geography. The web seemed so inherently endless that it didnt occur to me what wasnt there. My appetite for pictures and videos and news and music was so gigantic now that if something was shrinking, something immesurable, how would I notice?...Most of life is offline, and I think it always will be; eating and aching and sleeping and loving happen in the body. But its not impossible to imagine loosing my appetite for those things; they arent always easy, and they take so much time." - Author: Miranda July
