Gregor Piatagorsky Quotes

"I do not feel that artists have to spend hours a day to keep their technic efficient. If that were the case one would not be in a position to participate in the other joys of life. Nor could he enrich his art. Of course, mind you I am not saying that one should not work. But definitely I say that if one has developed a firm technic, it is not necessary to slave over the instrument for the rest of his life in order to keep in good form."

Quotes About Polynesia

"One finds the same basic mythological themes in all the religions of the world, from the most primitive to the most sophisticated, from the North American plains to European forests to Polynesian atolls.

Quotes About Being Managed

"I know the world seems terrifying right now and the future seems bleak. Just remember human beings have always managed to find the greatest strength within themselves during the darkest hours. When faced with the worst horrors the world has to offer, a person either cracks and succumbs to ugliness, or they salvage the inner core of who they are and fight to right wrongs. Never Let hatred, fear, and ignorance get the best of you. Keep bettering yourself so you can make the world around you better, for nothing can improve without the brightest, bravest, kindest, and most imaginative individuals rising above the chaos." - Author: Cat Winters

Quotes About His Hugs

"Jean-Yves looked up at his mothers face, her greying chignon, her harsh features: it was difficult to feel a rush of tenderness, of affection for this woman; as far back as he could remember, she had never really been one for hugs; it was equally difficult to imagine her in the role of a sensual lover, a slut. He suddenly realised that his father must have been bored shitless his whole life. He felt terribly shocked by this, his hands tensed on the edge of the table: this time it was irreparable, it was definitive. In despair, he tried to recall a moment when he had seen his father beaming, happy, genuinely glad to be alive." - Author: Michel Houellebecq

Quotes About Wandering Souls

"You can speak, I said looking directly at him, I needed him to know I wasnt afraid. Id been dealing with wandering souls, which is what I like to think of them as, all my life. They didnt frighten me but I liked to ignore them so they would go away. If they ever thought I could see them, they followed me. He continued to watch me with an amused expression on his face. I noticed his crooked grin produced a single dimple. The dimple didnt seem to fit with his cold, arrogant demeanor. As much as his presence annoyed me, I couldnt help but admit this soul could only be labeled as ridiculously gorgeous. Yes, I speak. Were you expecting me to be mute? I leaned my hip against the desk. Yes, as a matter of fact, I was. Youre the first one who has ever spoken to me. A frown creased his forehead. The first one? He appeared genuinely surprised he wasnt the first dead person I could see. He was definitely the most unique soul Id ever seen. Ignoring a soul who could talk was going to be" - Author: Abbi Glines

Quotes About Doing Things That Are Wrong

"No front porches. My uncle says there used to be front porches. And people sat there sometimes at night, talking when they wanted to talk, rocking, and not talking when they didnt want to talk. Sometimes they just sat there and thought about things, turned things over. My uncle says the architects got rid of the front porches because they didnt look well. But my uncle says that was merely rationalizing it; the real reason, hidden underneath, might be they didnt want people sitting like that, doing nothing, rocking, talking; that was the wrong KIND of social life. People talked too much. And they had time to think. So they ran off with the porches." - Author: Ray Bradbury
