William Cook Quotes

"Its safe to say that Horror, as a fictional genre, has claim to its own canon. There is a definite history that can be traced back to the origins of human language, both orally and written, and now multimedia based. We at this point, have access to the full gambit of genre Horror in all its hybrid forms (electronically at least). Sub-genres ensure that Horror can and will multiply in its complexities and evolve along with human fears."

Quotes About Gyvyb

"Tik žinau, kad moterys per kančias pasauliui atneša naują žmogų. Atsakomybės, kad šis užaugtų, imasi taip pat jos. Manau, tik nedaugelis moterų gali susitaikyti, kai žūsta gyvybė. Dėl jos moterys daug vargsta. Vyrai mažiau atsakingi, nebent ant jų užgriūna išbandymai ir atsakomybė. Jie viską nusiaubia, tarsi tai būtų tik žaidimas. Mes, moterys, renkame lavonus, gimdome naujus kareivius ir kuriame naujus ryšius." - Author: Herbjørg Wassmo

Quotes About Disorientation

"Though not necessarily aware of when we feel purpose and meaning, we are nearly always aware of the sickening feeling when we dont possess them. This isnt an intellectual misapprehension; it is a gut sense of disorientation and a loss of personal direction. Rarely are brute mental effort and self-help pep talks able to rekindle the missing feeling. For most of us, we simply wait patiently, knowing from past experience that the feeling will return in its own sweet time . . . Of particular interest is [Tolstoys] conclusion as to the inability of science and reason to provide a personal sense of meaning." - Author: Robert A. Burton

Quotes About Autonomy

"Those dreaming of the perfect match are outnumbered by those who dont really want it at all, though perhaps they cant admit it. After all, our culture makes individual freedom, autonomy and fulfillment the very highest values, and thoughtful people know deep down that any love relationship at all means the loss of all three. You can say, I want someone who will accept me just as I am, but in your heart of hearts you know that you are not perfect, that there are plenty of things about you that need to be changed, and that anyone who gets to know you up close and personal will want to change them." - Author: Timothy Keller
