"I have enjoyed acting very much, because I know its not for real!"

EF Schumacher Quotes

"Education can help us only if it produces "whole men." The truly educated man is not a man who knows a bit of everything, not even the man who knows all the details of all subjects (if such a thing were possible): the "whole man," in fact, may have very little detailed knowledge of facts & theories...but he will be truly in touch with the centre. He will not be in doubt about his basic convictions, about his view on the meaning and purpose of his life. He may not be able to explain these matters in words, but the conduct of his life will show a certain sureness of touch which stems from his inner clarity."

JB Albano Quotes

Sami Ahmad Khan Quotes

"I am a Dalit in Khairlanji. A Pandit in the Kashmir valley. A Sikh in 1984. I am from the North East of India when I am in Munirka. I am a Muslim in Gujarat; a Christian in Kandhamal. A Bihari in Maharashtra. A Delhi-wallah in Chennai. A woman in North India. A Hindi-speaker in Assam. A Tamilian in MP. A villager in a big city. A confused man in an indifferent world. Were all minorities.We all suffer; we all face discrimination. It is only us resisting this parochialism when in the position of majoritarian power that makes us human. I hope that one day, I can just be an Indian in India - only then can I be me."

Dennis Lehane Quotes

"If you are deemed insane, then all actions that would oherwise prove you are not do, in actuality, fall into the framework of an insane persons actions. Your sound protests constitute denial. Your valid fears are deemed paranoia. Your survival instincts are labeled defense mechanisms. Its a no-win situation. Its a death penalty really."

Quotes About Evil Queens

"It was an evil doom that set her in his path. For she is a fair maiden, fairest lady of a house of queens. And yet I know not how I should speak of her. When I first looked on her and perceived her unhappiness, it seemed to me that I saw a white flower standing straight and proud, shapely as a lily and yet knew that it was hard, as if wrought by elf-wrights out of steel.(Aragorn talking of Eowyn, in the Houses of Healing)" - Author: J.R.R. Tolkien

Quotes About Nury

"Ciemna puszcza jodłowa z obu stron okalała zastygły potok. Wiatr otrzepał ze śnieżnego puchu drzewa czarne i widmowe w zmierzchu dnia. Głęboka ciszazaścieliła kraj. Ziemia wydawała się nieruchoma, półżywa jak rozpacz, opuszczona i zastygła. Nie był to już nawet wyraz smutku. Włóczył się ponad nią jak gdyby śmiech dziwaczny, stokroć bardziej niż smutek ponury; śmiech gorzki niby skrzywienie ust sfinksa, przenikliwy jak mróz, nasiąkły okrucieństwem niewinnej obojętności. Zwycięski, stłumiony uśmiech wszystkowiedzących wieków nad przemijaniem i wysiłkiem życia. Dzikość. Brutalna dzikość Północy o sercu zastygłym." - Author: Jack London

Quotes About Reason To Be Happy

"Reason, Observation and Experience — the Holy Trinity of Science — have taught us that happiness is the only good; that the time to be happy is now, and the way to be happy is to make others so. This is enough for us. In this belief we are content to live and die. If by any possibility the existence of a power superior to, and independent of, nature shall be demonstrated, there will then be time enough to kneel. Until then, let us stand erect." - Author: Robert G. Ingersoll

"Lets look at this rationally...Weve got a doctor who may kill him, an Attorney General who wants to declare him bananas, and a Defense Secretary who wants me to start World War III...First, we ruled out starting World War III.

Quotes About Habito

"Se recordo quem fui, outrem me vejo, E o passado é o presente na lembrança. Quem fui é alguém que amo Porém somente em sonho. E a saudade que me aflige a mente Não é de mim nem do passado visto, Senão de quem habitoPor trás dos olhos cegos. Nada, senão o instante, me conhece. Minha mesma lembrança é nada, e sinto Que quem sou e quem fui São sonhos diferentes." - Author: Ricardo Reis
