Luke Rhinehart Quotes

"Natures accidents are the universes way of throwing chance into a system which would die of too much orderliness. Hurricanes, droughts, floods, volcanic eruptions are all Mother Natures way of stirring up the pot to prevent stagnation and putrefaction.A world without them would be a world of death. Floods, fires, eruptions, earthquakes all destroy and renew, kill and create, demolish and replant.So too riots, revolutions and wars are societies ways of throwing chance into their systems, which are dying of too much orderliness. And like natures eruptions, these too destroy and renew, kill and create, demolish and replant.And so too with individuals. Human beings need in their lives earthquakes and floods and riots and revolutions, or we grow as rigid and unmoving as corpses."

Quotes About Wretch

"He was going to enjoy pressing his little scheming hostess into improprieties shed not soon forget. He didnt need a storm to make his point; he had his own powers of persuasion-and hed use them all on her.He led her to the library, to the table holding the sherry. "Will you do the honors?"

Quotes About Failing Businesses

"Instead of going back and looking at the question, people tinker with the solution, trying to make it fit."-Claude Legrande..."The consequences of failing to do that [in our personal lives] are the same as those facing businesses - even more dire, perhaps, because whats being squandered isnt just the potential for profits. Its the potential for happiness. We miss opportunities to innovate and to make positive changes in our lives when we arent willing to question ourselves." - Author: Amanda Lang

Quotes About Megalomaniacs

"No religion I ever encountered made any sense. None are consistent. Most gods are megalomaniacs and paranoid psychotics by their worshippers description. I dont see how they could survive their own insanity. But its not impossible that human beings are incapable of interpreting a power so much greater than themselves. Maybe religions are twisted and perverted shadows of truth. Maybe there are forces which shape the world. I myself have never understood why, in a universe so vast, a god would care about something so trivial as worship or human destiny." - Author: Glen Cook

Quotes About People Being Fake

"I shrugged uncomfortably, leaning my head against hers, almost forgetting Mr. Gardners presence as Mo and I fell into that sort of exclusionary, near-telepathic best-friends communion. She knew that I would argue that I wasnt ashamed, but that I hadnt quite figured out how to truly mean it when I held my head up high. My entire life, people had been telling me to keep it down and stop being an embarrassment. So, I was still in that "fake it til you make it" stage, hoping genuine pride would come if I pretended confidence long enough. For now, I was relying on bravado and a complete lack of give-a-fuck to carry me through." - Author: Amelia C. Gormley

Quotes About Mad Geniuses

"No single man makes history. History cannot be seen, just as one cannot see grass growing. Wars and revolutions, kings and Robespierres, are historys organic agents, its yeast. But revolutions are made by fanatical men of action with one-track mind, geniuses in their ability to confine themselves to a limited field. They overturn the old order in a few hours or days, the whole upheaval takes a few weeks or at most years, but the fanatical spirit that inspired the upheavals is worshiped for decades thereafter, for centuries." - Author: Boris Pasternak

Quotes About Sweetest Day

"Her kitsch was the image of home, all peace, quiet, and harmony, and ruled by a loving mother and a wise father. It was an image that took shape in her after the death of her parents. The less her life resembled the sweetest of dreams, the more sensitive she was to its magic, and more than once she shed tears when the ungrateful daughter in a sentimental film embraced the neglected father as the windows of the happy familys house shone out into the dying day." - Author: Milan Kundera
