Harry Mulisch Quotes

"Alles waar je je wil en je aandacht op richt, wordt onzichtbaar, onbereikbaar, dat is tenminste mijn ervaring. Je ziet de dingen pas werkelijk uit je ooghoeken, als je eigenlijk ergens anders mee bezig bent. Het is net of de werkelijkheid zich dan gepasseerd voelt, het niet neemt en zich aan je opdringt."

Ekido did not speak again until that night when they reached a lodging temple. Then he could no longer restrain himself.

Even uploads face a finite data storage limit after a time. Its a monstrously egotistical statement, to say you intend to live forever. And if theres one thing I believe in, its public service.

Quotes About God Showing Up

"When Annunziata said she loved me or any of her thousands of other friends and beloveds, she was really saying, at least in my mind, "God loves you." To quote the singer/songwriter James Taylor, she showered the people she loved with love, always showing the way that she felt without holding back. Even as her body could barely contain her soul any longer, shed open wide the gates of herself with a smile, that giggle, her twinkling eyes, and shed let the supernatural love flow through her. Walking out of the chapel after her funeral, a woman Id never seen before stopped me and said, "Youre Cathleen, arent you?" "Yes," I croaked, tears rolling off my nose as I fingered the prayer card with Annunziatas picture on it. Slipping an arm around my shoulders, the woman explained that she was one of Annunziatas former students and said, "She loved you so much." I know." - Author: Cathleen Falsani
