Jess Walter Quotes

"I teach in M.F.A. programs now, and I think thats a great way to become a novelist, but I mourn that Pete Dexter and Joan Didions route is maybe less likely because there are fewer of those jobs. I always liken it to playing piano in some great dive jazz bar. You didnt pick the songs, you played what people asked for, but you got your chops."

Lawrence Okafor Quotes

May Sarton Quotes

"If art is not to be life-enhancing, what is it to be? Half the world is feminine--why is there resentment at a female-oriented art? Nobody asks The Tale of Genji to be masculine! Women certainly learn a lot from books oriented toward a masculine world. Why is not the reverse also true? Or are men really so afraid of womens creativity (because they are not themselves at the center of creation, cannot bear children) that a woman writer of genius evokes murderous rage, must be brushed aside with a sneer as irrelevant?"

Sherlock Holmes Quotes

"My job is to know what other people do not know."

Mean anything to you?Not a thing.Nor to me. But it supposedly summed up their philosophy pretty well at the time."

Quotes About Losing Valuable Things

"Quitting is not giving up, its choosing to focus your attention on something more important. Quitting is not losing confidence, its realizing that there are more valuable ways you can spend your time. Quitting is not making excuses, its learning to be more productive, efficient and effective instead. Quitting is letting go of things (or people) that are sucking the life out of you so you can do more things that will bring you strength." - Author: Osayi Osar Emokpae

Quotes About Dirty Minds

"If we address frankly what is evoked by cheese, I think it becomes clear why so little is said. So what does cheese evoke? Damp dark cellars, molds, mildews and mushrooms galore, dirty laundry and high school locker rooms, digestive processes and visceral fermentations, he-goats which do not remind of Chanel … In sum, cheese reminds of dubious, even unsavory places, both in nature and in our own organisms. And yet we love it." - Author: Michael Pollan

Quotes About Stop Smoking Cigarettes

"Scott goes to the computer and loads a chart that says something about global warming. Scott says, "See?" Judy says, "I dont think global warming is important, people shouldnt need to use global warming as an excuse to stop being wasteful." Scott says, "How can you not believe this?" Judy says, "There has been golf ball-sized hail storms and hurricanes for a long time, it didnt just start all of the sudden. In the movie Al Gore drives in an SUV." Scott leaves to have a cigarette. Cory says, "Al Gore owns his own farm." Judy stares at the TV. Judy thinks, "No one in this room cares about global warming, this is ridiculous, we are all smoking cigarettes and eating cheese, how can any one of us care about voting? No one in this room cares about anything." - Author: Ellen Kennedy

Quotes About Psychological Trauma

"Combat and rape, the public and private forms of organized social violence, are primarily experiences of adolescent and early adult life. The United States Army enlists young men at seventeen; the average age of the Vietnam combat soldier was nineteen. In many other countries boys are conscripted for military service while barely in their teens. Similarly, the period of highest risk for rape is in late adolescence. Half of all victims are aged twenty or younger at the time they are raped; three-quarters are between the ages of thirteen and twenty-six. The period of greatest psychological vulnerability is also in reality the period of greatest traumatic exposure, for both young men and young women. Rape and combat might thus be considered complementary social rites of initiation into the coercive violence at the foundation of adult society. They are the paradigmatic forms of trauma for women and men." - Author: Judith Lewis Herman

Quotes About Relief Of Stress

"I distrust summaries, any kind of gliding through time, any too great a claim that one is in control of what one recounts; I think someone who claims to understand but who is obviously calm, someone who claims to write with emotion recollected in tranquility, is a fool and a liar. To understand is to tremble. To recollect is to reenter and be riven. An acrobat after spinning through the air in a mockery of flight stands erect on his perch and mockingly takes his bow as if what he is being applauded for was easy for him and cost him nothing, although meanwhile he is covered with sweat and his smile is edged with a relief chilling to think about; he is indulging in a show-business style; he is pretending to be superhuman. I am bored with that and with here it has brought us. I admire the authority of being on ones knees in front of the event.- Innocence, from My Mistresss Sparrow is Dead" - Author: Harold Brodkey

Quotes About Road
