Phoenix Desmond Quotes

"Even the wise appear foolish before one who brings peace to another."

David Thomson Quotes

"Bette Davis lived long enough to hear the Kim Carnes song, Bette Davis Eyes. The lyrics to that song were not very interesting. But the fact of the song was the proof of an acknowledgement that in the twentieth century we lived through an age of immense romantic personalities larger than life, yet models for it, too - for good or ill. Like twin moons, promising a struggle and an embrace, the Davis eyes would survive her - and us. Kim Carnes has hardly had a consistent career, but that one song - sluggish yet surging, druggy and dreamy - became an instant classic. Its like the sigh of the islanders when they behold their Kong. And I suspect it made the real eyes smile, whatever else was on their mind."

Sandy DeLuca Quotes

"It feels as though Tonys a ghost, a wisp of someone I once loved, or never loved at all and thought was someone else. I dont feel anything, not even when he fucks me. I wonder if he knows. I wonder if he believes I still want him. I always tell myself its the last time, but I dont leave. i exist instead inside this shell of a life weve created."

Patricia Briggs Quotes

"The discoloration is very minimal. I have not turned blue. The extent of skin discoloration is not even remotely near what the news media are saying. It is barely noticeable."

Daniel L Schacter Quotes

"Experiences that we remember intrusively, despite desperately wanting to banish them from our minds, are closely linked to, and sometimes threaten, our perceptions of who we are and who we would like to be."

Quotes About Using Mean Words

"Through this image he had a glimpse of a strange dark cavern of speculation but at once turned away from it, feeling that it was not yet the hour to enter it. But the nightshade of his friends listlessness seemed to be diffusing in the air around him a tenuous and deadly exhalation and he found himself glancing from one casual word to another on his right or left in stolid wonder that they had been so silently emptied of instantaneous sense until every mean shop legend bound his mind like the words of a spell and his soul shrivelled up, sighing with age as he walked on in a lane among heaps of dead language. His own consciousness of language was ebbing from his brain and trickling into the very words themselves which set to band and disband themselves in wayward rhythms:The ivy whines upon the wallAnd whines and twines upon the wallThe ivy whines upon the wallThe yellow ivy on the wallIvy, ivy up the wall.Did any one ever hear such drivel?" - Author: James Joyce

Quotes About Communicating Well

"When I say or write something, there are actually a whole lot of different things I am communicating. The propositional content (i.e., the verbal information Im trying to convey) is only one part of it. Another part is stuff about me, the communicator. Everyone knows this. Its a function of the fact there are so many different well-formed ways to say the same basic thing, from e.g. "I was attacked by a bear!" to "Goddamn bear tried to kill me!" to "That ursine juggernaut did essay to sup upon my person!" and so on." - Author: David Foster Wallace

Quotes About Sliding Doors

"In the courtyard there was an angel of black stone, and its angel head rose above giant elephant leaves; the stark glass angel eyes, bright as the bleached blue of sailor eyes, stared upward. One observed the angel from an intricate green balcony — mine, this balcony, for I lived beyond in three old white rooms, rooms with elaborate wedding-cake ceilings, wide sliding doors, tall French windows. On warm evenings, with these windows open, conversation was pleasant there, tuneful, for wind rustled the interior like fan-breeze made by ancient ladies. And on such warm evenings this town is quiet. Only voices: family talk weaving on an ivy-curtained porch; a barefoot woman humming as she rocks a sidewalk chair, lulling to sleep a baby she nurses quite publicly; the complaining foreign tongue of an irritated lady who, sitting on her balcony, plucks a fryer, the loosened feathers floating from her hands, slipping into air, sliding lazily downward." - Author: Truman Capote
