[The Dial Of The Clock Wears Out Unevenly; Most Worn Is The Area Round Eight. As It Is Stared At With Abrasive Glancesunfailingly Twice A Day, It Is Weathered Away. On The Other Side The Area At Two Is Only Half As Worn, For Closed Eyes At NightPass Without Stopping. If There Is One Who Possesses A Flat Watch Evenly Worn, It Is He Who, Failing At The Start, Is Running One Lap Behind. Thus The World Is Always A Lap Fast--The World He Thinks He Sees Has Not Yet Begun. Illusory Time, When The Hands Stand Vertically On The Dial; Without The Bell Announcing The Raising Of The Curtain, The Play Has Come To An End.]

"The old, endless, approachable and always answering Sorrow," says my father Lucifer. "For who calls on me never goes unanswered. Only prayers to God go without answers."

Peter Robinson Quotes

"Just as there are legal guidelines concerning the police use of provocateurs, there must be limits to how far the media can go in setting up a misleading situation ... I, for one, can simply not accept that telling a lie is an acceptable way of reporting the truth... Every poll of public opinion shows that there is a suspicion among the general public that the media do not tell the whole truth, or that they distort things, or that they exaggerate, or that they are biased."

Quotes About Humans And The Universe

"If God wants something from me, he would tell me. He wouldnt leave someone else to do this, as if an infinite being were short on time. And he would certainly not leave fallible, sinful humans to deliver an endless plethora of confused and contradictory messages. God would deliver the message himself, directly, to each and every one of us, and with such clarity as the most brilliant being in the universe could accomplish. We would all hear him out and shout "Eureka!" So obvious and well-demonstrated would his message be. It would be spoken to each of us in exactly those terms we would understand. And we would all agree on what that message was." - Author: Richard Carrier

Quotes About Deprivation

"Under this swarm of waspish self-inquiries he began to feel sorry for himself - a brilliant man trapped, a Byron tamed; and his mind wandered back to Sarah, to visual images, attempts to recollect that face, that mouth, that generous mouth. Undoubtedly it awoke some memory in him, too tenuous, perhaps too general, to trace to any source in his past; but it unsettled him and haunted him, by calling to some hidden self he hardly knew existed. He said it to himself: It is the stupidest thing, but that girl attracts me. It seemed clear to him that it was not Sarah in herself who attracted him - how could she, he was betrothed - but some emotion, some possibility she symbolized. She made him aware of a deprivation. His future had always seemed to him of vast potential; and now suddenly it was a fixed voyage to a known place. She had reminded him of that." - Author: John Fowles

Quotes About Robert Gould Shaw

"Although it has become the most visible of American suburban landscapes, the edge node has few architectural defenders. Even developers despair: Shopping centers built only in the 1960s are already being abandoned. Their abandonment brings down the values of nearby neighbourhoods. Wal-Marts built five years ago are already being abandoned for superstores. We have built a world of junk, a degraded environment. It may be profitable for a short-term, but its long-term economic prognosis is bleak. -Dolores Hayden quoting Robert Davis, Postscript, in Congress for the New Urbanism, Charter of the New Urbanism, 2002." - Author: Dolores Hayden

Quotes About Falling In Love And Getting Hurt

"FEARLESS is not the absense of fear. Its not being completely unafraid. FEARLESS is having fears. FEARLESS is having doubts. Lots of them.FEARLESS is living in spite of those things that scare you to death. FEARLESS is falling madly in love again, even though youve been hurt before. FEARLESS is getting back up and fighting for what you want all over again... even though every time youve tried before, youve lost. Its FEARLESS to have faith that someday things will change. FEARLESS is having the courage to say goodbye to someone who only hurts you, even if you cant breathe without them. Its FEARLESS to say "youre NOT sorry," and walk away.I think loving someone despite what people think is FEARLESS." - Author: Taylor Swift

Quotes About Marching

"We were still confined to that corner. More and more people joined us, some black and some white. On the second day, we awoke to learn that somebody must have told Martin Luther King that things were getting out of hand in Montgomery, because rumor had it that he left the line of march from Selma to join us in the hood. Despite myself, I was thrilled at the prospect of marching with King. I knew this was SNCC turf, and I was now with SNCC, but how can you not be thrilled with the prospect of being so close to the big man himself?" - Author: Junius Williams
