"I had long been resistant to doing a documentary about my mother for personal reasons. And I thought there was no way shed want to, but then I asked her and she said yes."

Louis Althusser Quotes

"There exists [a] word in German, Geschichte, which designates not accomplished history, but history in the present, doubtless determined in large part, yet only in part, by the already accomplished past; for a history which is present, which is living, is also open to a future that is uncertain, unforeseeable, not yet accomplished, and therefore aleatory. Living history obeys only a constant (not a law): the constant of class struggle. Marx did not use the term constant, which I have taken from Levi-Strauss, but an expression of genius: tendential law, capable of inflecting (but not contradicting) the primary tendential law, which means that a tendency does not possess the form or figure of linear law, but that it can bifurcate under the impact of an encounter with another tendency, and so on ad infinitum. At each intersection the tendency can take a path that is unforeseeable because it is aleatory."

C Day Lewis Quotes

"It is eighteen years ago, almost to the day-A sunny day with the leaves just turning,The touch-lines new-ruled - since I watched you playYour first game of fotball, then, like a satelliteWrenched from its orbit, go drifting awayBehind a scatter of boys. I can seeYou walking away from me towards the schoolwith the pathos of a half-fledged thing set freeInto a wilderness, the gait of oneWho finds no path where the path should be.That hesitant figure, eddying awayLike a winged seed loosened from its parent stem,Has something I never quite grasp to conveyAbout natures give-and-take - the small, the scorchingOrdeals which fire ones irresolute clay.I had worse partings, but none that soGnaws at my mind still. Perhaps it is roughlySaying what God alone could perfectly show-How selfhood begins with a walking away,And love proved in the letting go."

Brooks Robinson Quotes

"If your not practicing, somebody else is, somewhere, and hell be ready to take your job."

Rene Denfeld Quotes

"They can keep men in here, under lock and key, deep in the dungeon until the final moments of their lives, so that men like York and me will never taste the rain. But they cannot keep us from passing our condensation on to the sky. They cannot keep us from raining down in China."

Eugenia Rico Quotes

"Ahora sabemos que las cosas buenas ocurren, que los sueños a veces se cumplen, que los deseos pueden hacerse realidad y de nosotros depende no olvidarlo para poder meterle un gol a esa portería invisible del día a día."

Richard Kearney Quotes

"If we possess narrative sympathy - enabling us to see the world from others point of view - we cannot kill. If we do not, we cannot love."

Clifford Grobstein Quotes

"Hierarchical organization in biological systems thus is characterized by an exquisite array of delicately and intricately interlocked order, steadily increasing in level and complexity and thereby giving rise neogenetically to emergent properties."

Quotes About Feeling Frazzled

"I dont want to be a widow, I dont want Michael Bayning, and I dont want you to joke about such things, you tactless clodpole!"As all three of them stared at her openmouthed, Poppy leapt up and stalked away, her hands drawn into fists.Bewildered by the immediate force of her fury—it was like being stung by a butterfly—Harry stared after her dumbly. After a moment, he asked the first coherent thought that came to him. "Did she just say she doesnt want Bayning?""Yes," Win said, a smile hovering on her lips. "Thats what she said. Go after her, Harry."Every cell in Harrys body longed to comply. Except that he had the feeling of standing on the edge of a cliff, with one ill-chosen word likely to send him over. He gave Poppys sister a desperate glance. "What should I say?""Be honest with her about your feelings," Win suggested.A frown settled on Harrys face as he considered that.

Quotes About Hurtful Past

"Are you healed? One sure way to tell if youve healed from your past pain is to be aware of how you feel when someone brings it up. Are you anxious, sad, emotional? If you are, the wound has not completely healed. But if you can hear a name from your past, recall a memory without flinching, then you know that your scar tissue is protecting you and that inside youre healthy and strong again. Its a wonderful feeling to feel nothing at all when your hurtful past doesnt hurt anymore." - Author: Toni Sorenson

Quotes About Choice And Chance

"Quinn froze. There was nothing he could do now that would not be a mistake. Whatever choice he made--and he had to make a choice--would be arbitrary, a submission to chance. Uncertainty would haunt him to the end. At that moment, the two Stillmans started on their way again. The first turned right, the second turned left. Quin craved an amoebas body, wanting to cut himself in half and run off in two directions at once. (Chapter 7)" - Author: Paul Auster

Quotes About Conflicting Priorities

"Finally, I had held up examples of Goldhagens inflammatory language and suggested that he had missed the essence of what Primo Levi once called the grey zone of human affairs, described by the historian Christopher Browning as that foggy universe of mixed motives, conflicting emotions, personal priorities, reluctant choices, opportunism and accomodation, all wedded, when convenient, to self-deception and denial. I thought that by marshalling his research into an overly narrow narrative, painted without nuance in black and white, the author had missed the human complexity and the ordinariness of racism." - Author: Erna Paris
