"Im not serious most of the time."

CP Snow Quotes

"The division of our culture is making us more obtuse than we need be: we can repair communications to some extent: but, as I have said before, we are not going to turn out men and women who understand as much of their world as Piero della Francesca did of his, or Pascal, or Goethe. With good fortune, however, we can educate a large proportion of our better minds so that they are not ignorant of the imaginative experience, both in the arts and in science, nor ignorant either of the endowments of applied science, of the remediable suffering of most of their fellow humans, and of the responsibilities which, once seen, cannot be denied."

Rorke Denver Quotes

"Read. You can always talk with another reader."

"I destroyed myself because I thought no one will destroy me that way but I guess I was wrong... theyre stonger."

Franco Santoro Quotes

"Only our imagination has the power to create the world you want and whatever gives you true joy. Beware of those who tell you to face reality and let go of your imagination. All they may truly ask for is that you shift your imagination from what you want to what they want."

Brian M Barry Quotes

"One simple answer is that there has been a massive rise in the incidence of sanctimony and smugness among the successful that has nothing to do with any change in the underlying reality. Rather, it has been stimulated by politicians who have realized that it is possible to win power by recruiting the most economically successful forty per cent or so of the population in a crusade to roll back the gains made by their fellow citizens in the previous forty years. And how better to rationalize this than to tell people that they deserve the incomes that the market generates?"

Matt Posner Quotes

"Just having a certain kind of attitude can be magic."

Hazel Rochman Quotes

"Reading makes immigrants of us all. It takes us away from home, but, most important, it finds homes for us everywhere."

Quotes About Wishing He Knew

"Eventually hed let the answering machine take over and had hidden in his studio. Where hes hidden all his life. From the monster. He could feel itin their bedroom now. He could feel its tail swishing by him. Feel its hot, fetid breath.All his life he knew if he was quiet enough, small enough, it wouldnnt see him. If he didnt make a fuss, didnt speak up, it wouldnt hear him, wouldnt hurt him. If he was beyond criticism and hid his cruelty with a smile and good deeds, it wouldnt devour him. By now he realized there was no hiding. It would always be there, and always find him. He was the monster." - Author: Louise Penny

Quotes About Bars Drinking

"Johnny liked being with Iona; it made him feel like a man. She was petite - a good five inches shorter than him - but it was more than that. She let him pay for her, patronise her, made no demands on his time other than what he was already willing to offer. She made him feel nineteen as well, in her bed with sheets that smelt like cheap laundrette detergent, in bars drinking Snakebite from pint glasses still warm from the dishwasher." - Author: Erin Lawless

Quotes About Junior In A Long Way Gone

"There was a Princess Somebody of Denmark sitting at a table with a number of people around her, and I saw an empty chair at their table and sat down.She turned to me and said, "Oh! Youre one of the Nobel-Prize-winners. In what field did you do your work?""In physics," I said."Oh. Well, nobody knows anything about that, so I guess we cant talk about it.""On the contrary," I answered. "Its because somebody knows something about it that we cant talk about physics. Its the things that nobody knows anything about that we can discuss. We can talk about the weather; we can talk about social problems; we can talk about psychology; we can talk about international finance--gold transfers we cant talk about, because those are understood--so its the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!"I dont know how they do it. Theres a way of forming ice on the surface of the face, and she did it!" - Author: Richard P. Feynman

Quotes About Travelling And Adventure

"For Delta blueman Robert Johnson and his contemporaries, the train was the eternal metaphor for the travelling life, and it still holds true today. There is no travel like it. Train lines carve through all facets of a nation. While buses stick to major highways and planes reduce the unfolding of lives to a birds eye view, trains putter through the domains of the rich and the poor, the desperate and the idle, rural and urban, isolated and cluttered. Through train windows you see realities rarely visible in the landscaped tourist areas. Those frames hold the untended jungle of a nations truth. Despite my shredded emotions, there was still no feeling like dragging all your worldly possessions onto a carriage, alone and anonymous, to set off into the unknown; where any and all varieties of adventures await, where you might meet a new best friend, where the love of your life could be hiding in a dingy cafe. The clatter of the tracks is the sound of liberation." - Author: Patrick ONeil

Quotes About Suppressed Feelings

"As the books of Job, Jeremiah, and Habakkuk clearly show, God has a high threshold of tolerance for what appropriate to say in a prayer. God can "handle" my unsuppressed rage. I may well find that my vindictive feelings need Gods correction - but only by taking those feelings to God will I have the opportunity for correction and healing." - Author: Philip Yancey

Quotes About Scotty Moore

"The records that I like, they have life and warmth and soul in them. Like the slap back on Scotty Moores guitar on Mystery Train. Youre not gonna get that in a computer. Youre gonna want a live room, youre gonna wanna bounce the tape, youre gonna want real musicians, in a room, vibin off of each other." - Author: Channing Tatum

Quotes About The Enlightenment Period

"But to unite in a permanent religious institution which is not to be subject to doubt before the public even in the lifetime of one man, and thereby to make a period of time fruitless in the progress of mankind toward improvement, thus working to the disadvantage of posterity - that is absolutely forbidden. For himself (and only for a short time) a man may postpone enlightenment in what he ought to know, but to renounce it for posterity is to injure and trample on the rights of mankind." - Author: Immanuel Kant

Quotes About Rome And Love

"Had Mary Shelley fretted so? Maybe yes, maybe no. Shed begun her classic work on a dare. Had culled a dream to bring it into being. But it was not lost on Laura that the story might be a prolonged exercise in Shelleys personal terrors. The subtitle of the work was Prometheus Unbound, and Laura wondered if Shelley herself was not Prometheus in the form of the wandering monster, who desperately sought love and acceptance but was ultimately driven to face an icy landscape that seemed almost fantastical—the way our own subconscious could be, white and frozen-slippery." - Author: L.L.
