Quotes About Architects Nature

"During the Second World War, nobody built any concert halls or theaters. After the war, Lincoln Center was a very brave project because all those architects had never built a theater before. Weve learned a lot since then about the nature of materials and the isolation thats required." - Author: Hugh Hardy

Quotes About Sycamore Trees

"A street turned off at right angles, descending, and became a dirt road. On either hand the land dropped more sharply; a broad flat dotted with small cabins whose weathered roofs were on a level with the crown of the road. They were set in small grassless plots littered with broken things, bricks, planks, crockery, things of a once utilitarian value. What growth there was consisted of rank weeds and the trees were mulberries and locusts and sycamores--trees that partook also of the foul desiccation which surrounded the houses; trees whose very burgeoning seemed to be the sad and stubborn remnant of September, as if even spring had passed them by, leaving them to feed upon the rich and unmistakable smell of negroes in which they grew." - Author: William Faulkner

Quotes About Knaves

"What do we see by [our enlightened age] which our ancestors saw not, and which at the same time is worth seeing? We see a hundred men hanged, where they saw one. We see five hundred transported, where they saw one. We see five thousand in the workhouse, where they saw one. . . . We see children perishing in manufactories, where they saw them flourishing in the fields. We see prisons, where they saw castles. We see masters, where they saw representatives. In short, they saw true men, where we see false knaves. They saw Milton, and we see Mr. Sackbut." - Author: Thomas Love Peacock

Quotes About Literary Devices

"Code is not like other how-computers-work books. It doesnt have big color illustrations of disk drives with arrows showing how the data sweeps into the computer. Code has no drawings of trains carrying a cargo of zeros and ones. Metaphors and similes are wonderful literary devices but they do nothing but obscure the beauty of technology." - Author: Charles Petzold

Quotes About Narcissistic

"The line between moral behavior and narcissistic self-righteousness is thin and difficult to discern. The man who stands before a crowd and proclaims his intention to save the seas is convinced that he is superior to a man who merely picks up his own and other peoples litter on the beach, when in fact the latter is in some small way sure to make the world a better place, while the former is likely to be a monster of vanity whose crusade will lead to unintended destruction." - Author: Dean Koontz

Quotes About Love Between Mother And Daughter

"And maybe love is terrifying. Im terrified now, but not in the way she would think.Im terrified because I hate who she is and what shes done, I do, and yet there is still something strong and powerful between us, some kind of deep, primal bond that wont end, wont snap or break or change, it just remains there inside me, as sold and factual as my blood and bones - she is my mother, I am her daughter - and I dont know what to call it because it doesnt feel like love, not the good kind I felt for Ellie, with all my heart, but instead an instinctual pull thats been there from the beginning, drawing me back to her again and again, the woman who has hurt me like no one else ever could, and now shes dying and the bond is still here, inside me, and I wont call it love or hate because emotions has nothing to do with the fact that she is my mother and I am her daughter, and we will be connected in that way forever." - Author: Laura Wiess
