Michael Farber Quotes

"All thats needed now is a great novel that will capture the imagination of the public - move them, enrage them, thrill them, terrify them, scandalize them. A story that will seize them by the hand and lead them into the streets where theyve never dared set foot, a tale that throws back the sheets from acts never shown and voices never heard. A tale that fearlessly points the finger at those who are to blame..."

Quotes About Before Midnight

Quotes About Ski Touring

"In medieval times, contrary to popular belief, most knights were bandits, mercenaries, lawless brigands, skinners, highwaymen, and thieves. The supposed chivalry of Charlemagne and Roland had as much to do with the majority of medieval knights as the historical Jesus with the temporal riches and hypocrisy of the Catholic Church, or any church for that matter. Generally accompanied by their immoral entourage or servants, priests, and whores, they went from tourney to tourney like a touring rock and roll band, sports team, or gang of South Sea pirates. Court to court, skirmish to skirmish, rape to rape. Fighting as the nobles substitution for work." - Author: Tod Wodicka

Quotes About Crap

"Even as Im shoveling up my hooter, I realize the sad truth. Coke bores me, It bores us all. Were jaded cunts, in a scene we hate, a city we hate, pretending that were at the center of the universe, trashing ourselves with crap drugs to stave off the feeling that real life is happening somewhere else, aware that all were doing is feeding that paranoia and disenchantment, yet somehow were too apathetic to stop. Cause, sadly, theres nothing else of interest to stop for." - Author: Irvine Welsh

Quotes About Mind Games

"Child psychologists have demonstrated that our minds are actually constructed by these thousands of tiny interactions during the first few years of life. We arent just what were taught. Its what we experience during those early years - a smile here, a jarring sound there - that creates the pathways and connections of the brain. We put our kids to fifteen years of quick-cut advertising, passive television watching, and sadistic video games, and we expect to see emerge a new generation of calm, compassionate, and engaged human beings?" - Author: Sidney Poitier
