Quotes About Thinking Ahead

"Nothing irrevocable had yet been spoken, but there was only the barest margin of safety left them, each of them moving delicately along the outskirts of an open question, and, once spoken, such a question-as "Do you love me?" -could never be answered or forgotten. They walked slowly, meditating, wondering, and the path sloped down from their feet and they followed, walking side by side in the most extreme intimacy of expectation; their feinting and hesitation done with, they could only await passively for resolution. Each knew, almost within a breath, what the other was thinking and wanting to say; each of them almost wept for the other. They perceived at the same moment the change in the path and each knew then the others knowledge of it; Theodora took Eleanors arm and, afraid to stop, they moved on slowly, close together, and ahead of them the path widened and blackened and curved." - Author: Shirley Jackson

Quotes About The History Of Photography

"[Photography] allows me to accede to an infra-knowledge; it supplies me with a collection of partial objects and can flatter a certain fetishism of mine: for this me which like knowledge, which nourishes a kind of amorous preference for it. In the same way, I like certain biographical features which, in a writers life, delight me as much as certain photographs; I have called these features biographemes; Photography has the same relation to History that the biographeme has to biography." - Author: Roland Barthes

"Lhomme nest ni bon ni méchant, il naît avec des instincts et des aptitudes ; la Société, loin de le dépraver, comme la prétendu Rousseau, le perfectionne, le rend meilleur ; mais lintérêt développe aussi ses penchants mauvais. Le christianisme, et surtout le catholicisme, étant, comme je lai dit dans le Médecin de Campagne, un système complet de répression des tendances dépravées de lhomme, est le plus grand élément dOrdre Social." - Author: Honoré de Balzac

As Margaret listened, the embittered grey eyes had softened, misted with sudden tears.

Quotes About Imperial

"Nietzscheja sem prežvečil in prebavil v treh dneh. Po tem velikem zalogaju mi je ostala samo še ena podrobnost osebnosti tega filozofa, še zadnji oreh, ki ga je bilo treba streti: njegovi brki! Federico Garcia Lorca, ki je bil očaran nad Hitlerjevimi brki, je pozneje izjavil, da "so brki tragična konstanta moškega obraza". Celo z brki sem nameraval preseči Nietzscheja! Moji že ne bodo zamorjeni, katastrofični, obteženi z wagnerjansko glasbo in meglo. Ne! Moji bodo zašiljeni, imperialistični, ultraracianalistični in usmerjeni k nebu, kot vertikalni misticizem, kot španski vertikalni sindikati." - Author: Salvador Dalí
