Quotes About Mediocre Love

"So you think that youre a failure, do you? Well, you probably are. Whats wrong with that? In the first place, if youve any sense at all you must have learned by now that we pay just as dearly for our triumphs as we do for our defeats. Go ahead and fail.

That may be the only way any of us will ever be free." - Author: Tom Robbins

Quotes About Banquets

"Ask for a valiant heart which has banished the fear of death, which looks upon the length of days as one of the least of natures gifts; which is able to suffer every kind of hardship, is proof against anger, craves for nothing, and reckons the trials and gruelling labours of Hercules as more desirable blessings than the amorous ease and the banquets and cushions of Sardanapallus. The things that I recommend you can grant to yourself." - Author: Juvenal

Quotes About Mental Instability

"Ive always been a quitter. I quit the Boy Scouts, the glee club, the marching band. Gave up my paper route, turned my back on the church, stuffed the basketball team. I dropped out of college, sidestepped the army with a 4-F on the grounds of mental instability, went back to school, made a go of it, entered a Ph.D. program in nineteenth-century British literature, sat in the front row, took notes assiduously, bought a pair of horn-rims, and quit on the eve of my comprehensive exams. I got married, separated, divorced. Quit smoking, quit jogging, quit eating red meat. I quit jobs: digging graves, pumping gas, selling insurance, showing pornographic films in an art theater in Boston. When I was nineteen I made frantic love to a pinch-faced, sack-bosomed girl Id known from high school. She got pregnant. I quit town." - Author: T.C. Boyle
