"Beauty begins in the eyes of the beholder; Reality ends in the mind of the observer."

Nien Cheng Quotes

"As I gazed at Maos face wearing what was intended as a benign expression but was in fact a smirk of self-satisfaction, I wondered how one single person could have caused the extent of misery that was prevailing in China. There must be something lacking in our own character, I thought, that had made it possible for his evil genius to dominate. Pg. 259"

Jose Revueltas Quotes

"En la memoria de Polonio la palabra nadien se había clavado, insólita, singular, como si fuese la suma de un número infinito de significaciones. Nadien, este plural triste. De nadie era la culpa, del destino, de la vida, de la pinche suerte, de nadien."

"I was certainly never conscious of playing the woman. I would not have approved of that. It is not a winning tactic. I operated in the world as I found it, and it was a mans world."

Larry Geller Quotes

"What drove us crazy wasnt necessarily the sexual freedom his critic claimed he was unleashing, but freedom, period. Freedom to be yourself, to express yourself, to wear what you wanted to wear, to look the way you wanted to look, to have your own style, your own talk."

Quotes About Institute

"Michael Ledeen—a contributing editor of National Review and a Freedom Scholar at the influential neoconservative think tank American Enterprise Institute—wrote on the National Review blog in November 2006: I had and have no involvement with our Iraq policy. I opposed the military invasion of Iraq before it took place.Ledeen, however, wrote in August 2002 of the desperately-needed and long overdue war against Saddam Hussein and when he was interviewed for Front Page Magazine the same month and asked, Okay, well if we are all so certain about the dire need to invade Iraq, then when do we do so? Ledeen replied: Yesterday. There is obvious, substantial risk in falsely claiming that one opposed the Iraq War notwithstanding a public record of support. But that war has come to be viewed as such a profound failure that that risk, at least in the eyes of some, is outweighed by the prospect of being associated with Bushs invasion." - Author: Glenn Greenwald

Quotes About Altering History

"The God who is ever uttering himself in the changeful profusions of nature; who takes millions of years to form a soul that shall understand him and be blessed; who never needs to be, and never is, in haste; who welcomes the simplest thought of truth or beauty as the return for seed he has sown upon the old fallows of eternity, who rejoices in the response of a faltering moment to the age-long cry of his wisdom in the streets; the God of music, of painting, of building, the Lord of Hosts, the God of mountains and oceans; whose laws go forth from one unseen point of wisdom, and thither return without an atom of loss; the God of history working in time unto christianity; this God is the God of little children, and he alone can be perfectly, abandonedly simple and devoted." - Author: George MacDonald

Quotes About Drinking Bukowski

"I dont know that any writing comes easily, but I certainly get more immersed in novels. I dont think the routine is any different, but fiction tends to pull me further away from my life. When Im deep in a novel, I dont pay bills and I walk around in one shoe, drinking two-day old coffee, and calling my kids by the wrong names." - Author: Jess Walter

Quotes About Hate

"I hate acting when I see it. I dont want to feel it, I dont want to see it, I want to be taken away with the story - I dont want the actors ego in front of me. Thats what I try to live when I do the work." - Author: Rutger Hauer

Quotes About Old Fashioned Romance

"There is an old-fashioned distinction between the novel of character and the novel of incident, which must have cost many a smile to the intending romancer who was keen about his work. It appears to me as little to the point as the equally celebrated distinction between the novel and the romance- to answer as little to any reality. There are bad novels and good novels, as there are bad pictures and good pictures; but that is the only distinction in which I see any meaning, and I can as little imagine speaking of a novel of character as I can imagine speaking of a picture of character. When one says picture, one says of character, when one says novel, one says of incident, and the terms may be transposed. What is character but the determination of incident? What is incident but the illustration of character? What is a picture or a novel that is not of character? What else do we seek in it and find in it?" - Author: Henry James

Quotes About Freedom Of Choice

"The communitarians may say youve been enjoying too much individual freedom, and that you must give up some of that for the benefit of the community. But they really mean that they want more power over your life - to force you to subsidize, obey and conform to their choices." - Author: Harry Browne

Quotes About Briefe

"Compared to forest or aquatic ecosystems, grassland is unstable. It requires rather precise geological and climatic conditions, and if these conditions are not maintained--if too much rain falls, or too little--it quickly turns into forest or desert, both of which are dominated by woody plants. This instability is reflected in the spectacular but brief careers of various grassland faunas. Humanity, with its dazzling symbioses, preadaptations, and neoteny, is the most spectacular of these--and may well be the briefest." - Author: David Rains Wallace

Quotes About Being An Ex

"Magnus remembered a town in Peru whose Quechua name meant "quiet place." He recalled even more vividly being obscenely drunk and unhappy over his heartbreak of that time, and the maudlin thoughts that had recurred to him over the years, like an unwanted guest slipping in through his doors: that there was no peace for such as he, no quiet place, and there never would be.Except he found himself remembering lying in bed with Alec—all of their clothes on, lounging on the bed on a lazy afternoon, Alec laughing, head thrown back, the marks Magnus had left on his throat very plain to see." - Author: Sarah Rees Brennan
