[The Sanscrit Language, Whatever Be Its Antiquity, Is Of A Wonderful Structure; More Perfect Than The Greek, More Copious Than The Latin, And More Exquisitely Refined Than Either, Yet Bearing To Both Of Them A Stronger Affinity, Both In The Roots Of Verbs And The Forms Of Grammar, Than Could Possibly Have Been Produced By Accident; So Strong Indeed, That No Philologer Could Examine Them All Three, Without Believing Them To Have Sprung From Some Common Source, Which, Perhaps, No Longer Exists; There Is A Similar Reason, Though Not Quite So Forcible, For Supposing That Both The Gothic And The Celtic, Though Blended With A Very Different Idiom, Had The Same Origin With The Sanscrit; And The Old Persian Might Be Added To The Same Family.]

"And thats the work of your generation.

"Finally, her father spoke. "Are you sure? I mean, I dont understand how this could have happened. Shes only fifteen; I didnt even know she was sexually active." Mallorys father, normally in control, was on the verge of tears. He refused to look at his daughter, his little girl.

He wanted to know when this happened, and with whom—but those questions would have to wait."

Quotes About Being Seen And Heard

"I notice I am taking risks with my own security and losing my sensitivity to danger. I dont know it at the time, but the effects of war are reaching into me in unexpected ways, and I am being changed by them. I am surrounded by destruction and the randomness of death, which I cannot fathom. I have felt the closeness of death as tangibly as the whisper of a murderous seducer, and felt the richness, twinged by guilt, of having escaped its grasp. I have seen too often the numb lost look of men consumed by undiluted grief, and heard the howl of children as their mothers are pulled from the rubble of a rocket-blasted home, and I am coming to understand the long dark pain of those who silently endure what first seems unendurable." - Author: Jason Elliot

His voice was hard-edged, and his words seemed harsh to her. "The MacKinnon brothers are the highest nobility to those who live on the frontier—true warriors, men who know how to fight and survive, men who put the lives of others before their own.

Quotes About Obession

"Worship me, she says, worship the mistery of the bleeding goddess, and you do it. You stop at nothing. You lick it. You consume it. You digest it. She penetrates you.What next, David? A glass of her urine. How long before you would have begged for her feces? Im not against it because its unhygienic.Im not against it because its disgusting. Im against it because its falling in love. The only obession everybody wants: love. People think that in falling in love they make themselves whole? The Platonic union of souls? I think otherwise. I think youre whole before you begin. And the love fractures you. Youre whole, and then youre cracked open. She was a foreign body introduced into your wholeness. And for a year and a half you struggled to incorporate it. But youll never be whole until you expel it. You either get rid of it or incorporate it through self-distortion." - Author: Philip Roth
