[There Had Been A Time, Until 1422, When A Number Of Both Gaelic And Anglo-Irish Students Attended Oxford And Cambridge In England. But Fellow Students Had Complained That Irish Living Together In Large Numbers Sooner Or Later Got Noisy And Violent And There Was No Handling Them. Accordingly, The Universities Imposed A Quota System On Irishman, And Decreed That Those Admitted Must Be Scattered Around Among Non-compatriots: Exclusively Irish Halls Of Residence Were Banned.]

Ksdarsh Quotes

And so there are these people who act as alum in your life. Try to settle down the dirt, your ego! Try to clear the water, change your attitude! So when water is clear, dirt has settled down, taking decisions become so easy."

"I write, she wrote, that memory is fragile and the space of a single life is brief, passing so quickly that we never get a chance to see the relationship between events; we cannot gauge the consequences of our acts, and we believe in the fiction of past, present, and future, but it may also be true that everything happens simultaneously . . . And now I seek my hatred and cannot seem to find it. I feel its flame going out as I come to understand [its] existence . . . It would be difficult for me to avenge all those who should be avenged, because my revenge would be just another part of the same inexorable rite. I have to break that terrible chain. I want to think that my task is life and that my mission is not to prolong hatred but simply fill these pages . . ." - Author: Isabel Allende
