Blaine Harden Quotes

"[I]t was in the pairs that the prisoners kept alive the semblance of humanity concluded Elmer Luchterhand, a sociologist at Yale who interviewed fifty-two concentration camp survivors shortly after liberation.Pairs stole food and clothing for each other, exchanged small gifts and planned for the future. If one member of a pair fainted from hunger in front of an SS officer, the other would prop him up.Survival . . . could only be a social achievement, not an individual accident, wrote Eugene Weinstock, a Belgian resistance fighter and Hungarian-born Jew who was sent to Buchenwald in 1943.Finally the death of one member of a pair often doomed the other. Women who knew Anne Frank in the Bergen-Belsen camp said that neither hunger nor typhus killed the young girl who would become the most famous diarist of the Nazi era. Rather, they said, she lost the will to live after the death of her sister, Margot."

Quotes About Obie

"Yo creo en el poder de llamar a las cosas por su nombre. De descubrir la verdad aunque haya tantos empeñados en esconderla. [...] Yo creo en la obligación ciudadana de vivir en la indignación permanente: criticando, denunciando, proponiendo, sacudiendo. Porque los buenos gobiernos se construyen con base en buenos ciudadanos y sólo los inconformes lo son. La insatisfacción lleva a la participación; el enojo, a la contribución; el malestar hacia el statu quo, a la necesidad de cambiarlo." - Author: Denise Dresser

Quotes About Opium Poppy

"To him it seemed a miracle that we should last so much as a single day. There is no antidote, he writes, against the opium of time. The winter sun shows how soon the light fades from the ash, how soon night enfolds us. Hour upon hour is added to the sum. Time itself grows old. Pyramids, arches and obelisks are melting pillars of snow. Not even those who have found a place amidst the heavenly constellations have perpetuated their names: Nimrod is lost in Orion, and Osiris in the Dog Star. Indeed, old families last not three oaks. To set ones name to a work gives no one a title to be remembered, for who knows how many of the best of men have gone without a trace? The iniquity of oblivion blindly scatters her poppyseed and when wretchedness falls upon us one summers day like snow, all we wish for is to be forgotten." - Author: W.G. Sebald

Quotes About Grating

Quotes About Sad Memories

"What made Olive the saddest about the Gardners was that everyone wanted to be enshrined in someones memory. It was the only way of living on after death, really: in the minds of loved ones. Memories were the only things that made aging bearable, a way of reverting to better, simpler days." - Author: Andrea Lochen

Quotes About Toffee

"It was toffee; they were advertising toffee, a nursemaid told Rezia. Together they spell t...o...f..."K...R..." said the nursemaid, and Septimus heard her say "Kay Arr" close to his ear, deeply, softly, like a mellow organ, but with a roughness in her voice like a grasshoppers, which rasped his spine deliciously and sent running up into his brain waves of sound which, concussing, broke. A marvellous discovery indeed - that the human voice in certain atmospheric conditions (for one must be scientific, above all scientific) can quicken trees into life!" - Author: Virginia Woolf

Quotes About Loafing

"A word grows to a thought – a thought to an idea – an idea to an act. The change is slow, and the Present is a sluggish traveler loafing in the path Tomorrow wants to take." - Author: Beryl Markham

Quotes About Heartache

"It was a hurting tune, resigned, a cry of heartache for all in the world that fell apart. As ash rose black against the brilliant sky, Fires fiddle cried out for the dead, and for the living who stay behind to say goodbye." - Author: Kristin Cashore

Quotes About Hello November

"Im already waiting when Puck gets to the top of the cliffs. Im not the only one; about two dozen race tourists have made perches out of rocks, watching Corr and me as closely as they dare. Puck glares at them all, searing enough that some of them flinch in surprise. Im not certain what to expect from her after last night. I dont know how to address her. I dont know what she expects from me or what I expect from me. What I get is a wordless hello and a November cake in my hand." - Author: Maggie Stiefvater
