Boileau Narcejac Quotes

Lawrence Thornton Quotes

"When we first arrived at Auschwitz there were birds. I didnt know what kind, just brown birds, like the finches. They came for about a week and then the Nazis electrified the fences. I was out early the first morning they had the power on. A whole flight of these little birds came in and as they settled on the wire they made quick bright bursts of flame and smoke. The others did not know what was happening and they kept coming in and getting incinerated. The next day the birds did not come close to the camp. We saw them in the distance for a few days, but they never came close. At first I thought they had just naturally learned a lesson, but then I realized they had become sensitive to evil."

Quotes About Fireworks And Love

"Fireworks made of glass. An explosion of dew. Crescendo. Diminuendo. Silence.There are drugs that work the same, and while I am not suggesting that our founder purchased the glassworks to get more drops, it is clear that she had the seed planted, not once, but twice, and knew already the lovely contradictory nature of glass and she did not have to be told, on the day she saw the works at Darling Harbour, that glass is a thing in disguise, an actor, is not solid at all, but a liquid, that an old sheet of glass will not only take on a royal and purplish tinge but will reveal its true liquid nature by having grown fatter at the bottom and thinner at the top, and that even while it is as frail as the ice on a Parramatta puddle, it is stronger under compression than Sydney sandstone, that it is invisible, solid, in short, a joyous and paradoxical thing, as good a material as any to build a life from." - Author: Peter Carey

Quotes About Cita

"Entro de noche a mi ciudad, yo bajo a mi ciudad donde me esperan o me duelen, donde tengo que huir de alguna abominable cita, de lo que ya no tiene nombre, una cita con dedos, con pedazos de carne en un armario, con una ducha que no encuentro, en mi ciudad hay duchas, hay un canal que corta por el medio mi ciudad y navíos enormes sin mástiles pasan en un silencio intolerable hacia un destino que conozco pero que olvido al regresar, hacia un destino que niega mi ciudad donde nadie se embarca, donde se está para quedarse aunque los barcos pasen y desde el liso puente alguno esté mirando mi ciudad.Entro sin saber cómo en mi ciudad, a veces otras noches salgo a calles o casas y sé que no es mi ciudad (...)." - Author: Julio Cortázar

Quotes About Instincts

"We no longer live on what we have, but on promises, no longer in the present day, but in the darkness of the future, which, we expect, will at last bring the proper sunrise. We refuse to recognize that everything better is purchased at the price of something worse; that, for example, the hope of grater freedom is canceled out by increased enslavement to the state, not to speak of the terrible perils to which the most brilliant discoveries of science expose us. The less we understand of what our [forebears] sought, the less we understand ourselves, and thus we help with all our might to rob the individual of his roots and his guiding instincts, so that he becomes a particle in the mass, ruled only by what Neitzche called the spirit of gravity. (p.236)" - Author: C.G. Jung
