Quotes About Occurrence

"They [human lives] are composed like music. Guided by his sense of beauty, an individual transforms a fortuitous occurrence (Beethovens music, death under a train) into a motif, which then assumes a permanent place in the composition of the individuals life. Anna could have chosen another way to take her life. But the motif of death and the railway station, unforgettably bound to the birth of love, enticed her in her hour of despair with its dark beauty. Without realizing it, the individual composes his life according to the laws of beauty even in times of greatest distress.It is wrong, then, to chide the novel for being fascinated by mysterious coincidences (like the meeting of Anna, Vronsky, the railway station, and death or the meeting of Beethoven, Tomas, Tereza, and the cognac), but it is right to chide man for being blind to such coincidences in his daily life. For he thereby deprives his life a dimension of beauty." - Author: Milan Kundera

Quotes About Chip On Shoulder

"He smiled all the way to physics class. He almost laughed out loud when he passed through the door and saw her shadowy, hunched-over form casting around for a seat in the back.She was in his class; this was excellent. Maybe shed call him a name if he struck up another conversation. Even curse him out. That might fun. God, hed probably earn himself a restraining order if he tried to sit next to her.He was so tired of saccharine smiles and cloying tones of voice. People always plastered their eyes to his face for fear of looking anywhere else. He was fed up with everybody being so goddamned nice.Thats why hed already fallen in love with this weird, maladjusted, beautiful girl who carried a chip the size of Ohio on her shoulder. Because nobody was ever mean to the guy in the wheelchair." - Author: Francine Pascal

Quotes About Being Pinched

"A breeze ruffled the neat hedges of Privet Drive, which lay silent and tidy under the inky sky, the very last place you would expect astonishing things to happen. Harry Potter rolled over inside his blankets without waking up. One small hand closed on the letter beside him and he slept on, not knowing he was special, not knowing he was famous, not knowing he would be woken in a few hours time by Mrs. Dursleys scream as she opened the front door to put out the milk bottles, nor that he would spend the next few weeks being prodded and pinched by his cousin Dudley...He couldnt know that at this very moment, people meeting in secret all over the country were holding up their glasses and saying in hushed voices: "To Harry Potter - the boy who lived!" - Author: J.K. Rowling

Quotes About Concept Of Self

"I have to certainly stand for life. I know that there are some who disagree, and I respect their point of view. But I believe that life begins at conception.

I struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize life is that gift from God." - Author: Richard Mourdock

Quotes About Easily Offended

"I had a feeling she probably made friends with people pretty easily, and that could be a good thing for me too, since Id always been a little on the reserved side. She probably had offended a lot of people too, but maybe they all just overlooked it, as i was finding it surprisingly easy to do. She seemed genuinely oblivious to the fact that anything she said could be potentially insulting, and for some reason that made it kind of forgivable." - Author: Jessi Kirby
