Quotes About Rain And Life

"I was now well prepared to be a career criminal. I had the proper training and a natural feel for the business. I had a respect for the old-liners like Angelo and Don Frederico. I had been a witness to both murder and betrayal and had my appetite whetted for acts of revenge.I just didnt have the stomach for any of it.I didnt want my life to be a lonely and sinister on, where even the closest of friends could overnight turn into an enemy who needed to be eliminated. If I went the way Angelo had paved, I would earn millions, but would never be allowed to taste the happiness and enjoyment such wealth often brings. I would rule over a dark world, a place where treachery and deceit would be at my side and never know the simple pleasures of an ordinary life. p368." - Author: Lorenzo Carcaterra

Quotes About Bible Conviction

"Through the reading of popular scientific books I soon reached the conviction that much in the stories of the Bible could not be true. The consequence was a positively fanatic orgy of freethinking coupled with the impression that youth is intentionally being deceived by the state through lies; it was a crushing impression. Mistrust of every kind of authority grew out of this experience, a skeptical attitude toward the convictions that were alive in any specific social environment - an attitude that has never again left me.- Albert Einstein, Autobiographical Notes, edited by Paul Arthur Schilpp" - Author: Albert Einstein

Quotes About Campfire

"The incident with Dawn hadnt been one of my finer moments. I honestly hadnt expected to break any bones when I shoved her into a tree. Still, the incident had given me a dangerous reputation.

Quotes About Conceptualizing

"As soon as you look at the world through an ideology you are finished. No reality fits an ideology. Life is beyond that. … That is why people are always searching for a meaning to life… Meaning is only found when you go beyond meaning. Life only makes sense when you perceive it as mystery and it makes no sense to the conceptualizing mind." - Author: Anthony de Mello

Quotes About Epic Stories

"How do you get the happy ending? John Irving ought to know. One of my favorite authors, Irving writes these multigenerational epics of fiction that somehow work out in the end. How does he do it? He says, I always begin with the last sentence ; then I work my way backwards, through the plot, to where the story should begin. Thst sounds like a lot of work, especially compared to the fantasy that great writers sit down and just go where the story takes them. Irving lets us know that good stories and happy endings are more intentional than that. Most 20 somethings cant write the last sentence of their lives. But when pressed, they usually can identify things they want in their 30s or 40s or 60s -or things they dont want- and work backward from there. This is how you have your own multigenerational epic with a happy ending. This is how you live your life in real time." - Author: Meg Jay

Quotes About Illnesses And Life

"Signs imply ways of living, possibilities of existence, they are the symptoms of an overflowing (jaillissante) or exhausted (épuisée) life. But an artist cannot be content with an exhausted life, nor with a personal life. One does not write with ones ego, ones memory, and ones illnesses. In the act of writing theres an attempt to make life something more personal, to liberate life from what imprisons it...There is a profound link between signs, the event, life, and vitalism. It is the power of nonorganic life, that which can be found in a line of a drawing, a line of writing, a line of music. It is organisms that die, not life. There is no work of art that does not indicate an opening for life, a path between the cracks. Everything I have written has been vitalistic, at least I hope so, and constitutes a theory of signs and the event." - Author: Gilles Deleuze
