Quotes About Ndt

"Det var bare en bit som ennå ikke hadde funnet sitt puslespill. Nei, det var et puslespill som ikke hadde funnet sine biter. Det var bare skyen som ikke hadde funnet sin himmel. Jeg trodde jeg skulle bli et helere menneske ved å fylle ut tomrommene i meg. Det omvendte var tilfelle. Jo mer jeg fylte på, desto tommere ble jeg, alt jeg tok inn hulte meg ut, og alt jeg kastet opp tynget meg mer og mer. Enda en gang visste jeg: Det er for mye innhold i verden. Verden trekker deg ned. Det er ikke plass i et menneske, i et enkelt menneske, til alt dette. Jeg lengtet etter overflater. Jeg lengtet etter en eske som jeg kunne legge alt i. Men verden er som sagt påtrengende og ublu. Verden gir seg ikke med det første." - Author: Lars Saabye Christensen

Quotes About Taren

"Något av det viktigaste i all konst: att överlåta en anständig del åt läsaren, betraktaren, den medverkande. Det ska finnas en tom plats vid det dukade bordet. Den är hans." - Author: Gunnar Ekelöf

Quotes About Pointless Tasks

"Nick and I, we sometimes laugh, laugh out loud, at the horrible things women make their husbands do to prove their love. The pointless tasks, the myriad sacrifices, the endless small surrenders. We call these men the dancing monkeys." - Author: Gillian Flynn

Quotes About The Us Open

"Oh, the priest said, thats another thing altogether - God is love. I dont say the heart doesnt feel a taste of it, but what a taste. The smallest glass of love mixed with a pint pot of ditch-water. We wouldnt recognize that love. It might even look like hate. It would be enough to scare us - Gods love. It set fire to a bush in the desert, didnt it, and smashed open graves and set the dead walking in the dark. Oh, a man like me would run a mile to get away if he felt that love around." - Author: Graham Greene

Quotes About Tit

"She had a pretty gift for quotation, which is a serviceable substitute for wit." - Author: W. Somerset Maugham

Quotes About Our Future Together

"I saw our future together compressed into a moment; our faces changing, desire having to cope and reinvent itself at each new stratum of familiarity; I saw the gradual dissolution of mutual mystery and romance, its succession by friendship and a sort of tranquil and supernatural loyalty; I felt - with great lightness of being - the bearability of the idea of death, if the life preceding it was bloodily commingled (in children) with hers. A humble little truth: build a truly good life and it will reward you with mastery of the fear of death. It was simple. Having committed to the building of a marriage and family, all sorts of truths came forward and offered themselves." - Author: Glen Duncan

Quotes About Candida

"Yo, discípulo de sempiterno candidato a la presidencia doctor Goyeneche, discípulo a su vez del sabio español Pero Grullo, tengo para Colombia y su infinidad de males una expedita solución: que dejen atracar. Los atracadores se irán a gastar el dinero de su atraco a un cabaret; el dueño del cabaret se comprará un carro; la fábrica de carros venderá más; y al vender más empleará más obreros; y al haber más obreros habrá menos desempleo; y al acabarse el desempleo se acabarán los atracadores y los secuestros y los robos y los asaltos, y sonreirá la gente, e irán todos a la universidad, y acaso a este servidor le den un puesto, aunque sea limpiador de oficinas, y al final del año habrá ahorrado con qué comprarse su alfombra persa, para poder volar." - Author: Fernando Vallejo

Quotes About Seasons Change

"Your corn is ripe today; mine will be so tomorrow. Tis profitable for us both, that I should labour with you today, and that you should aid me tomorrow. I have no kindness for you, and know you have as little for me. I will not, therefore, take any pains upon your account; and should I labour with you upon my own account, in expectation of a return, I know I should be disappointed, and that I should in vain depend upon your gratitude. Here then I leave you to labour alone; You treat me in the same manner. The seasons change; and both of us lose our harvests for want of mutual confidence and security." - Author: David Hume

Quotes About Materialistic Possessions

"I draw from my family and my friends and I feel like that small-town person. The achievements, the materialistic possessions have really become to mean less. They mean nothing." - Author: Sheryl Crow

"Grief is not very different from illness: in the impetus of its fire it does not recognise lords, it does not fear colleagues, it does not respect or spare anyone, not even itself."[First letter to Pope Celestine (1193)]" - Author: Eleanor of Aquitaine
