Brandon W Forbes Quotes

"As a rule, we dont like to feel to sad or lonely or depressed. So why do we like music (or books or movies) that evoke in us those same negative emotions? Why do we choose to experience in art the very feelings we avoid in real life?Aristotle deals with a similar question in his analysis of tragedy. Tragedy, after all, is pretty gruesome. […] Theres Sophocless Oedipus, who blinds himself after learning that he has killed his father and slept with his mother. Why would anyone watch this stuff? Wouldnt it be sick to enjoy watching it? […] Tragedys pleasure doesnt make us feel "good" in any straightforward sense. On the contrary, Aristotle says, the real goal of tragedy is to evoke pity and fear in the audience. Now, to speak of the pleasure of pity and fear is almost oxymoronic. But the point of bringing about these emotions is to achieve catharsis of them - a cleansing, a purification, a purging, or release. Catharsis is at the core of tragedys appeal."

Saadat Hasan Manto Quotes

"You would have realized that it wasnt Mumtaz, a muslim, a friend of yours, but a human being you had killed. I mean, if he was a bastard, by killing him you wouldnt have killed the bastard in him; similarly, assuming that he was a Muslim, you wouldnt have killed his Muslimness, but him."

Dieckmann Hans Quotes

"Freud kdysi řekl, že lidstvo zažilo tři velké urážky: nejdříve uslyšelo, že země není středem vesmíru, pak se dovědělo, že člověk pochází z opice, a nakonec mu psychoanalytici řekli, že člověk není pánem ve vlastním domě."

Pablo Neruda Quotes

"Girl lithe and tawny, the sun that formsthe fruits, that plumps the grains, that curls seaweedsfilled your body with joy, and your luminous eyesand your mouth that has the smile of the water.A black yearning sun is braided into the strandsof your black mane, when you stretch your arms.You play with the sun as with a little brookand it leaves two dark pools in your eyes."

Thomas Malory Quotes

"Ah, bella damigella, dignità, virtù e valore non sono riposti solo nellabbigliamento!" esclamò Balin. "La virilità e lonore sono celati nella persona, e vi sono molti insigni cavalieri ignoti a tutti, a riprova che il pregio e lardimento non hanno alcun rapporto con le vesti che indossano."

She Quotes

"She discovered in a series of beautifully executed researches the fundamental distinction between carbons that turned on heating into graphite and those that did not. Further she related this difference to the chemical constitution of the molecules from which carbon was made. She was already a recognized authority in industrial physico-chemistry when she chose to abandon this work in favour of the far more difficult and more exciting fields of biophysics.{Bernal on the death of scientist Rosalind Franklin}"

Ahmed Farrag Quotes

Julio Alexi Genao Quotes

"Undertown. You maybe dont remember it. Your clothes dont smell of it. Of the filth, the rot. The stinking hell of vapor and grime. The warren of hovels and the millions of us starving in them, defending whatever pathetic collection of things we call ‘ours—sometimes to the death, yet still doing little more than waiting to die."

Quotes About Praying To God

"There is going to come a time when we have to accept who we are without the assistance of religion. That will be the dawn of true faith. We leave the big decisions to invisible consultants and pray we get the answers we are looking for. The late great George Carlin once said he gave up praying to God and started praying to Joe Pesci because his prayers to Joe Pesci were answered with as much accuracy and frequency as those to God. [...] If we as people are still looking for answers, we should turn our eyes away from the heavens and look to each other. I know we do not play well together - hell, some of us do not even like being in the same room with each other - but the divine lies in all of us. We are miracles. We are "god." If we shared a little more, we would not be left feeling less. We hold the keys to our own destinies. It is time we started looking for the locks." - Author: Corey Taylor

Quotes About Praising And Worshiping God

"Gods power is not cheap. Just like the electric power that comes into our homes, there is a price to pay for it. Only the price is not monetary. The price is spending time filling ourselves with Gods Word so we can understand the power. Its praying so we can access the power. Its living in obedience so we can maximize the power. Its praising and worshiping God so that we open up the lines through which Gods power flows into our lives." - Author: Stormie Omartian

Quotes About Classy Girl

"So Im not crazy after all! I thought it looked good myself once I cut it all off. Not one guy likes it, though. They all tell me I look like a first grader or a concentration camp survivor. Whats this thing that guys have for girls with long hair? Fascists, the whole bunch of them! Why do guys all think girls with long hair are the classiest, the sweetest, the most feminine? I mean, I myself know at least two hundred and fifty unclassy girls with long hair. Really." - Author: Haruki Murakami
