[This Land, Although Not My Native Land,Will Be Remembered Forever.And The Sea's Lightly Iced,Unsalty Water.The Sand On The Bottom Is Whiter Than Chalk,The Air Is Heady, Like Wine,And The Rosy Body Of The PinesIs Naked In The Sunset Hour.And The Sunset Itself On Such Waves Of EtherThat I Just Can't ComprehendWhether It Is The End Of The Day, The End Of The World,Or The Mystery Of Mysteries In Me Again.]

Quotes About Talented Employees

"Even your most talented employees have room for growth in some area, and youre doing your employee a disservice if the sum of your review is: Youre great!

Quotes About Thieves At Work

"In medieval times, contrary to popular belief, most knights were bandits, mercenaries, lawless brigands, skinners, highwaymen, and thieves. The supposed chivalry of Charlemagne and Roland had as much to do with the majority of medieval knights as the historical Jesus with the temporal riches and hypocrisy of the Catholic Church, or any church for that matter. Generally accompanied by their immoral entourage or servants, priests, and whores, they went from tourney to tourney like a touring rock and roll band, sports team, or gang of South Sea pirates. Court to court, skirmish to skirmish, rape to rape. Fighting as the nobles substitution for work." - Author: Tod Wodicka

Quotes About Hourly

"When the flames came up her eyes burned out there like gatelamps to another world. A world burning on the shore of an unknowable void. A world construed out of blood and bloods alcahest and blood in its core and in its integument because it was nothing save blood had power to resonate against that void which threatened hourly to devour it. He wrapped himself in the blanket and watched her. When those eyes and the nation to which they stood witness were gone at last with their dignity back into their origins there would perhaps be other fires and other witnesses and other worlds otherwise beheld. But they would not be this one." - Author: Cormac McCarthy

Quotes About Manga Life

"Personally, I was never more passionate about manga than when preparing for my college entrance exams. Its a period of life when young people appear to have a great deal of freedom, but are in many ways actually opressed. Just when they find themselves powerfully attracted to members of opposite sex, they have to really crack the books. To escape from this depressing situation, they often find themselves wishing they could live in a world of their own - a world they can say is truly theirs, a world unknown even to their parents. To young people, anime is something they incorporate into this private world.I often refer to this feeling as one yearning for a lost world. Its a sense that although you may currently be living in a world of constraints, if you were free from those constraints, you would be able to do all sorts of things. And its that feeling, I believe, that makes mid-teens so passionate about anime." - Author: Hayao Miyazaki

Quotes About Sublimation

"this responsibility for the death of my (m)other, is a significance so irreducible that it is from it that the meaning ofdeath may be understood.

Quotes About Consumer Culture

"There is a contradiction between market liberalism and political liberalism. The market liberals (e.g., social conservatives) of today want family values, less government, and maintain the traditions of society (at least in Americas case). However, we must face the cultural contradiction of capitalism: the progress of capitalism, which necessitates a consumer culture, undermines the values which render capitalism possible" - Author: Slavoj Žižek
