Michael Strunge Quotes

"jeg ville gerne være højere, så jeg kunne se dig i øjnene, jeg ville gerne expandere, så jeg kunne rumme os begge, jeg ville gerne koncentrere mig, så det hele kunne nås inden for dette øje-bliks grænser, så ingen overflødige ord skulle spilde tiden med at forbinde vore afstandes sår, jeg ville gerne koncentrere mig, så ordenes mislykkede graviditeter blev afbrudt, så nye afstande døde før fødselen, jeg ville gerne være højere, så jeg kunne se dig i øjnene, jeg ville gerne indfange dine øjnes udtryk og indtryk; men afstanden er for stor, og du ser det hele fra en anden vinkel - ser ned på mit forståelsessøgende blik."

Charles Augustin De Coulomb Quotes

"Moreover, the sciences are monuments devoted to the public good; each citizen owes to them a tribute proportional to his talents. While the great men, carried to the summit of the edifice, draw and put up the higher floors, the ordinary artists scattered in the lower floors, or hidden in the obscurity of the foundations, must only seek to improve what cleverer hands have created."

Stathis Kouvelakis Quotes

"The event, in its emergence, poses its own premises, determining that they were the conditions for its realization. This transition is always the result of a salto mortale, which is a creative act in the sense that it gives the preceding links in the chain of events their meaning."

Rob Brydon Quotes

"The thing is, when I had my first success it did coincide with the end of my first marriage, and because I went on to have a very, very unhappy two years, I dont think I equate career success with personal happiness."

Quotes About Pintar

"La Madre de Dios tenía siempre el dedo índice levantado cuando yo me sentaba delante, en el banco de los niños. Pero la expresión de su rostro era amable, y yo no le tenía miedo. Todo el tiempo llevaba el mismo vestido largo azul claro y tenía unos labios rojos muy bonitos. Y un día que el cura dijo que los lápices de labios se hacen con sangre de pulga y de otros bichos repugnantes, me pregunté por qué la Madre de Dios que había en el altar lateral se pintaría los labios. También se lo pregunté al cura, que me golpeó las manos con su regla hasta ponérmelas rojas y me mandó en seguida a casa. Estuve varios días sin poder mover los dedos." - Author: Herta Müller

Quotes About Enduring Loss

"Some part of me . . . had been waiting, since Kelps death, for certainty that God . . . was either dead or malicious. On the cot, now, in the rain-shadowed room with the medicine smells, I knew it was worse than that. They were a challenge, a dare: you must look at the horrors of the world and find a way back to faith in spite of what you saw. I had a glimpse of what the purer version of myself might be capable of: enduring the loss, keeping the rage and disgust down, finding meaning through suffering. But it was only a glimpse. There was so much shame, and the shame made me angry at the thought of getting better." - Author: Glen Duncan

Quotes About Romanticizing The Past

"Recent fads in history and biography have increasingly exalted the aridity of chronology and fact, and have, with some valid reason, rejected romanticizing and the presumption of guessing at the inner thoughts of historical figures. Unfortunately, the result has largely been not to demythologize the past, but merely to dehumanize and depersonalize it. As Roger Mudd has pointed out, Too many of todays historians [and biographers] ... seem to have forgotten that the writing of history is a literary art." - Author: Markham Shaw Pyle

Quotes About Move On In Break Up

"We froze. Neither of us moving, simply staring at each other, wondering if the other was going to move first. "You are," he whispered, "uncommonly stirring." He closed his eyes then, as if he had to in order to break the bond between us, then lifted me to the saddle and stared at the ground as he guided my feet into the stirrups." - Author: Lisa Tawn Bergren

Quotes About Roots And Love

"If you desire the path of sincerity, develop a love for obscurity. Flee from the clatter and clinks of fame. Be like the roots of a tree; it keeps the tree upright and gives it life, but it itself is hidden underneath the earth and eyes cannot see it." - Author: Abdullah ibn al Mubarak

Quotes About Body Dysmorphic Disorder

"I am overweight. But to me, its fat. I dont have Body Dysmorphic Disorder. When I look in the mirror I dont plunge into a depression and stick my finger down my throat or carve FAT in my arm with a pickle fork. I can appreciate when I look good aside from the weight. Sometimes I might say, Oh, Im having a good face day.And a few times, after checking my appearance in the mirror before a date, Id say, Okay. Id date me. And I know if I ever could get the extra tonnage off, Id be the first one to parade around in my underwear, or have no qualms about getting naked with a hottie, while the lights were still on in the room." - Author: Kelli Jae Baeli

Quotes About Option For The Poor

"All he wanted was enough time to consider all his options without being dragged into his households petty squabbles or being nagged by his wife about that damnable pilgrimage. Was that so much to ask?Apparently so, for hed yet to find a peaceful moment at Caen, not with Marguerite sulking and Aimar lurking and Will acting put-upon and Geoff wanting to lay plans and Richard strutting around as if he were the incarnation of Roland and poor Tilda grieving over Mamans absence and his father refusing to heed any voice but his own." - Author: Sharon Kay Penman
