"Men need to be needed. When we are needed, we feel powerful. We thrive on helping a woman who needs us."

John Le Carre Quotes

"Western teaching institutions that refuse to acknowledge todays taboos are by definition subversive. Tell the new zealots of Washington that in the making of Israel a monstrous human crime was committed and they will call you an anti-Semite. Tell them there was no Garden of Creation and they will call you a dangerous cynic. Tell them God is what man invented to compensate for his ignorance of science and they will call you a Communist."

Quotes About Bird Dogs

"The Prologue to TERRITORY LOST"Of cats first disobedience, and the heightOf that forbidden tree whose doomd ascentBrought man into the world to help us downAnd made us subject to his moods and whims,For though we may have knockd an apple looseAs we were carried safely to the ground,We never said to eat thaccursed thing,But yet with him were exiled from our placeWith loss of hosts of sweet celestial miceAnd toothsome baby birds of paradise,And so were sent to stray across the earthAnd suffer dogs, until some greater CatRestore us, and regain the blissful yard,Sing, heavenly Mews, that on the ancient banksOf Egypts sacred river didst inspireThat pharaoh who first taught the sons of menTo worship members of our feline breed:Instruct me in thunfolding of my tale;Make fast my grasp upon my themes dark threadsThat undistracted save by naps and snacksI may oercome our native reticenceAnd justify the ways of cats to men." - Author: Henry N. Beard

Quotes About Opposing Forces

"All things are in flux; the flux is subject to a unifying measure or rational principle. This principle (logos, the hidden harmony behind all change) bound opposites together in a unified tension, which is like that of a lyre, where a stable harmonious sound emerges from the tension of the opposing forces that arise from the bow bound together by the string." - Author: Heraclitus

Quotes About Band Music

"For some young artists, it can take a bit of time to discover which tools (which medium, or genre, or career pathway) will truly suit them best. For me, although many different art forms attract me, the tools that I find most natural and comfortable are language and oil paint; Ive also learned that as someone with a limited number of spoons its best to keep my toolbox clean and simple. My husband, by contrast, thrives with a toolbox absolutely crowded to bursting, working with language, voice, musical instruments, puppets, masks animated on a theater stage, computer and video imagery, and half a dozen other things besides, no one of these tools more important than the others, and all somehow working together. For other artists, the tools at hand might be needles and thread; or a jewellers torch; or a rack of cooking spices; or the time to shape a young childs day....To me, its all art, inside the studio and out. At least it is if we approach our lives that way." - Author: Terri Windling

Quotes About Beliefs And Actions

"So, you may ask, what is the use of studying the world of imagination where anything is possible and anything can be assumed, where there are no rights or wrongs and all arguments are equally good? One of the most obvious uses, I think, is its encouragement of tolerance. In the imagination our own beliefs are also only possibilities, but we can also see the possibilities in the beliefs of others. Bigots and fanatics seldom have any use for the arts, because theyre so preoccupied with their beliefs and actions that they cant see them as also possibilities. Its possible to go to the other extreme, to be a dilettante so bemused by possibilities that one has no convictions or power to act at all. But such people are much less common than bigots, and in our world much less dangerous." - Author: Northrop Frye

Quotes About Change And Stagnation

"I had started keeping a journal, and I was discovering that I didnt need school in order to experience the misery of appearances. I could manufacture excruciating embarrassment in the privacy of my bedroom, simply by reading what Id written in the journal the day before. Its pages faithfully mirrored my fraudulence and pomposity and immaturity. Reading it made me desperate to change myself, to sound less idiotic. As George Benson had stressed in Then Joy Breaks Through, the experience of growth and self-realization, even of ecstatic joy, were natural processes available to believers and nonbelievers alike. And so I declared private war on stagnation and committed myself privately to personal growth. The Authentic Relationship I wanted now was with the written page." - Author: Jonathan Franzen
