[The Thought Of Only Being A Creature Of The Present And Past Was Troubling. I Longed For A Future Too, With Hope In It. The Desire To Be Free, Awakened My Determination To Act, To Think, And To Speak.]

Stephen Hunter Quotes

"New movies are almost always hipper, faster, they mix genres aggressively, they smother their genre origins in new form, there are fewer of them, and they tend to cost a lot more money because you usually make more money on the megahit than you do on the steady progression of break-eveners. Except for the horror movie."

Quotes About Chaos In Nature

"Nature is typified by strength; humanity by weakness. Nature adheres to an immutable order; humanity to an ever-increasing chaos. Nature recognizes no equality at any level of its order; humanity preaches an all-prevasive equality and freely hands-out unearned "rights" in an attempt to make its doctrine a living reality. In short: humanity is Democratic, nature is Fascist." - Author: Boyd Rice

Quotes About Whaling

"Yes, there is death in this business of whaling—a speechlessly quick chaotic bundling of a man into Eternity. But what then? Methinks we have hugely mistaken this matter of Life and Death. Methinks that what they call my shadow here on earth is my true substance. Methinks that in looking at things spiritual, we are too much like oysters observing the sun through the water, and thinking that thick water the thinnest of air. Methinks my body is but the lees of my better being." - Author: Herman Melville

Quotes About Plan B In Life

"These days, Ive been trying to classify my thoughts into two categories: "Things I can change," and "Things I cant." It seems to help me sort through what to really stress about. But there I go again, over-planning and over-organizing my over-thinking! I write songs about my adventures and misadventures, most of which concern love. Love is a tricky business. But if it wasnt, I wouldnt be so enthralled with it. Lately Ive come to a wonderful realization that makes me even more fascinated by it: I have no idea what Im doing when it comes to love. No one does! Theres no pattern to it, except that it happens to all of us, of course. I cant plan for it. I cant predict how itll end up. Because love is unpredictable and its frustrating and its tragic and its beautiful. And even though theres no way to feel like Im an expert at it, its worth writing songs about -- more than anything else Ive ever experienced in my life." - Author: Taylor Swift

Quotes About Crowd Followers

"Leaders are not, as we are often led to think, people who go along with huge crowds following them. Leaders are people who go their own way without caring, or even looking to see, whether anyone is following them. "Leadership qualities" are not the qualities that enable people to attract followers, but those that enable them to do without them. They include, at the very least, courage, endurance, patience, humor, flexibility, resourcefulness, stubbornness, a keen sense of reality, and the ability to keep a cool and clear head, even when things are going badly. True leaders, in short, do not make people into followers, but into other leaders." - Author: John Holt
