Quotes About Backpacking

"Tragedy seems to bring out all varieties of unexpected qualities in people. It was as if some folks got dunked in plastic, vacuum-sealed like backpacking dinners, and could do nothing but sweat in their private hell. And others seemed to have just the opposite problem, as if disaster had dipped them in acid instead, stripping off the outside layer of skin that once protected them from the slings and arrows of other peoples outrageous fortunes. For these sorts, just walking down the street in the wake of every strangers ill wind became an agony, an aching slog through this mans fresh divorce and this womans throat cancer. They were in hell, too, but it was everybodys hell, this big, shoreless, sloshing sea of toxic waste." - Author: Lionel Shriver

"In my opinion MS is a lot better at making money than it is at making good operating systems." - Author: Linus Torvalds

Quotes About External Forces

"The poet who sees himself as a hero or a prophet, or a priest of the socio-political forces to which he is loyal, which he believes are the historical necessities of his times, too easily becomes a puppet. He has no external measure with which to assess reality. Whether he submits to the forces or rejects them, he becomes a parody of himself, and then without knowing it submits his gifts to the demons of his era. He loses his place in the continuity of time. He becomes dependent on social affirmation and the drug of exalted feelings common to all revolutionaries. He destroys, even as he thinks he creates." - Author: Michael D. OBrien

Quotes About Secret Relationships

"These rules, the sign language and grammar of the Game, constitute a kind of highly developed secret language drawing upon several sciences and arts, but especially mathematics and music (and/or musicology), and capable of expressing and establishing interrelationships between the content and conclusions of nearly all scholarly disciplines. The Glass Bead Game is thus a mode of playing with the total contents and values of our culture; it plays with them as, say, in the great age of the arts a painter might have played with the colours on his palette." - Author: Hermann Hesse

Quotes About Masculinity

"What Womens Lib might achieve if their consciousness raising - or in plain English, brainwashing— campaign succeeds is a society whose members have identical roles but are perpetually at war with themselves; a society of males made neurotic by suppressed masculinity, of females made miserable by having masculine roles thrust upon them that contradict their feminine impulses." - Author: Arianna Huffington

Quotes About Fit Body

"There are such a lot of things that have no place in summer and autumn and spring. Everything thats a little shy and a little rum. Some kinds of night animals and people that dont fit in with others and that nobody really believes in. They keep out of the way all the year. And then when everythings quiet and white and the nights are long and most people are asleep—then they appear." - Author: Tove Jansson

Quotes About Love Nests

"the sense of a small courageous community barely existing above the desert of trees, hemmed in by a sun too fierce to work under and a darkness filled with evil spirits - love was an arm round the neck, a cramped embrace in the smoke, wealth a little pile of palm-nuts, old age sores and leprosy, religion a few stones in the centre of the village where the dead chiefs lay, a grove of trees where the rice birds, like yellow and green canaries, built their nests, a man in a mask with raffia skirts dancing at burials. This never varied, only their kindness to strangers, the extent of their poverty and the immediacy of their terrors. Their laughter and their happiness seemed the most courageous things in nature" - Author: Graham Greene

Quotes About Hilary

"Um… yes," I say desperately. "I was just wondering… could we possible put it off for a little bit? Just a few minutes." Hilarys face freezes. "What?" she says at last. I have a dreadful feeling shes going to explode. "I feel a bit confused. I need more time to think…" I trail off at Hilarys expression. She comes toward me and brings her face very close to mine. Shes still smiling, but her eyes are snapping and her nostrils flared and white. I take a step back, quailing, but she grabs my shoulders so hard I can feel her nails digging into my flesh. "Samantha," she hisses. "You will go out there, you will read your statement, and you will say Carter Spink is the best law firm in the world. And if you dont – I will kill you." I think shes serious." - Author: Sophie Kinsella

Quotes About Breaks

"Its the hour when night breaks away from the day, my dove, let me go." - Author: Jean Genet

Quotes About Trusted

"Astonishingly, at some point, a sputtering torch was thrust into her hands. Alma did not see who gave it to her. She had never before been entrusted with fire. The torch spit sparks and sent chunks of flaming tar spinning into the air behind her as she bolted across the cosmos-the only body in the heavens who was not held to a strict elliptical path. Nobody stopped her. She was a comet. She did not know that she was not flying." - Author: Elizabeth Gilbert
