Anne Osborn Quotes

"A teenager deserves a library that recognizes reality. He needs an information source and study area that does not impose arbitrary, crippling rules on him. His library should recognize that dignity and silence are not prior requisites to learning […] He would like, needs, and deserves for other people to stop trying to protect him and allow him the right to choose information for himself […] Most of all the teenager needs people in libraries to recognize and accept him as a respectable human being."

Rodger Kamenetz Quotes

"So," Art [Green] said, "its hard to do Judaism and travel light. Judaism is not mostly about letting go, but mostly about attachment to God, through attachment to tradition, attachment to forms."

Edward Dolnick Quotes

"The usual consolations of life, friendship and sex included, appealed to Newton hardly at all. Art, literature, and music had scarcely more allure. He dismissed the classical sculptures in the Earl of Pembrokes renowned collection as "stone dolls." He waved poetry aside as "a kind of ingenious nonsense." He rejected opera after a single encounter. "The first Act I heard with pleasure, the 2d stretchd my patience, at the 3d I ran away."

Quotes About Kipling

"The critic said that once a year he read Kim; and he read Kim, it was plain, at whim: not to teach, not to criticize, just for love—he read it, as Kipling wrote it, just because he liked to, wanted to, couldnt help himself. To him it wasnt a means to a lecture or article, it was an end; he read it not for anything he could get out of it, but for itself. And isnt this what the work of art demands of us? The work of art, Rilke said, says to us always: You must change your life. It demands of us that we too see things as ends, not as means—that we too know them and love them for their own sake. This change is beyond us, perhaps, during the active, greedy, and powerful hours of our lives; but duringthe contemplative and sympathetic hours of our reading, our listening, our looking, it is surely within our power, if we choose to make it so, if we choose to let one part of our nature follow its natural desires. So I say to you, for a closing sentence, Read at whim! read at whim!" - Author: Randall Jarrell

Quotes About Thinking Outside The Box

"Thinking outside the box is ridiculous nonsense, since whatever you can do in a box or closed environment is not thinking. If I think about a problem but limit my thoughts to certain dimensions - then i am not thinking at all, because thinking implies that one at least tries to take all relevant factors into consideration, and as theres usually no way to tell which factors are and which are not relevant restricted thought is not thinking and so thinking outside the box is simply a eufemism for lets start to think, but the metafor implies a hidden desire to return to conformity immediately." - Author: Martinus Hendrikus Benders
