Jill Lepore Quotes

"History is the art of making an argument about the past by telling a story accountable to evidence. In the writing of history, a story without an argument fades into antiquarianism; an argument without a story risks pedantry. Writing history requires empathy, inquiry, and debate. It requires forswearing condescension, cant, and nostalgia. The past isnt quaint. Much of it, in fact, is bleak."

Richard Mourdock Quotes

Harvey Keitel Quotes

"Hardly any actor objects to press. Its a question of it being done in the way they like to see it done, meaning to get down to the serious interview what the profession is so we can reach out to the people to help them get along."

Wit Szostak Quotes

"Moje myślenie wiecznie niegotowe na to, co ma mysleć, moje opowiadanie wiecznie niegotowe na to, co ma opowiadać, nie jestem gotowy na tę opowieść. Ten ciągły lęk przed rozstrzygnięciem, przed działaniem, przed życiem sprawia, że żyjąc, udaję życie, żyję obok siebie, wyobrażając sobie tylko jak kiedyś, w przyszłości, będę żył życiem prawdziwym, będę opowiadał zgrabnie skrojone historie, będę znajdował właściwe słowa i tonacje. I tak od lat śledzę siebie samego z ubocza, z ukrycia, widząc, że ten prawdziwy ja, ja, którym chciałbym być, jest zawsze o kilka kroków przede mną. Widzę go znikającego za kolejnym zakrętem, kiedy sam dopadam tego zakrętu, spostrzegam go zanurzającego się w czeluść jakiejś bramy, potem zamykającego za soba drzwi. A ja stoję z zadyszką na schodach, zmęczony pogonią, z zadyszką od tego ciągłego pośpiechu, stoję tak, oddychając ciężko i znów zostaję w tyle, z zadyszką. Ja nie jestem, mnie nie ma, ja dopiero będę."

Quotes About Joyful Heart

"But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.To know the pain of too much tenderness.To be wounded by your own understanding of love;And to bleed willingly and joyfully.To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;To rest at noon hour and meditate loves ecstasy;To return home at eventide with gratitude;And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise on your lips." - Author: Kahlil Gibran

Quotes About God Watching Over

"So in America when the sun goes down and I sit on the old broken-down river pier watching the long, long skies over New Jersey and sense all that raw land that rolls in one unbelievable huge bulge over to the West Coast, and all that road going, and all the people dreaming in the immensity of it, and in Iowa I know by now the children must be crying in the land where they let the children cry, and tonight the starsll be out, and dont you know that God is Pooh Bear? the evening star must be drooping and shedding her sparkler dims on the prairie, which is just before the coming of complete night that blesses the earth, darkens all the rivers, cups the peaks and folds the final shore in, and nobody, nobody knows whats going to happen to anybody besides the forlorn rags of growing old, I think of Dean Moriarty, I even think of Old Dean Moriarty the father we never found, I think of Dean Moriarty." - Author: Jack Kerouac

Quotes About Kill

"Dont make me out to be something worth saving. We both know Im a waste." His voice was so quiet. "I wish I was better at telling you why you have to stay here. I wish I could put into words the part of my heart that has your name written on it. That part hurts right now. You have to be here. You love life too much. Youre so important. I wish I could make you understand this." He tried to smile at her valiant efforts. "I would keep you if I could. You can sleep here, right on this couch. Beckett, I will let you hold this baby when it comes." She touched her stomach. "Does that tell you how much you mean to me? Its the only thing I can come up with." He shrugged. "Mouse would be disappointed. Hed feel like he didnt do his job if you died…Eve loves you. Wherever she is—in this strip club—is that what youve been wishing for?" Beckett shook his head. "No, right? She loves you. You cant kill someone she loves. You just cant." - Author: Debra Anastasia

Quotes About Nurses Retirement

"It was a lesson she was still learning. When she had first started nursing, she had taken every death personally, like she was losing her father all over again. Every patient lost under her care was a little piece of death she would carry around with her until the end of her own life. But the alternative seemed so unfeeling. Tina and the other nurses could crack jokes and banter back and forth about contestants on American Idol before the body of a deceased patient was even cold. It was a coping mechanism, she knew, but not necessarily one she thought she would ever adopt. There had to be something in between. Olive had been called a bleeding heart before, but her heart no longer had the same plasticity and tenderness—it was scarred and worn beyond repair" - Author: Andrea Lochen

Quotes About Acting Innocent

"From whom but the Devil did this advice come under which you are acting? Those who are urging you to repeat your former wrongdoings against an innocent person are seeking in this not your honour but their own convenience. They are clearly the enemies of your crown and the disturbers of your realm." - Author: Alison Weir

Quotes About Robert The Bruce

"A few years ago, when I was hitchhiking through Laramie, Wyoming, I met an old and infertile man named John. I told him, "I think Id have made a good son, John. But Id have made an even better Johnson." He nodded as he took a long drag from his cigarette before he said, "I think I would have made a good Robert Derrick. But Id have made an even better Derrick Robert." I was silent for a few minutes, because I knew all too well what he meant. Ive often felt Id have made a great Bruce Robert, and an even better Robert the Bruce than Robert the Bruce ever was. Because, as many people have told me, "You can take all the Bruces in the world, including Mr. Willis, and youd be the only one who could simply be called ‘The Bruce." But you couldnt call me "The Boss," because that title belongs to another Bruce." - Author: Jarod Kintz
