Franny Billingsley Quotes

"More important for Chime were the ballads that my father sang me. I think that all of those ballads, the structure of them, the bittersweet nature of them, has gone right into my books. I cant thank my father enough; he sang me two songs every night and sometimes theyd be these long ballads with 32 verses. I grew up knowing an amazing number of stories, accompanied by these gorgeous and haunting tunes that arent part of our modern culture. Theyre very Gaelic. I think that was really important to me; I would not be the writer I am if he had not sung me all those songs. So, thanks Dad"

Eric Burns Quotes

"The library is not, as some would have it, a place for the retiring of disposition or faint of heart. It is not an ivory tower or a quiet room in a sanitarium facing away from the afternoon sun. It is, rather, a command center, a power base. A board room, a war room. An Oval Office for all who preside over their own destinies. One does not retreat from the world here; one prepares to join it at an advantage."

Martin Baker Quotes

Quotes About Commercial Law

"In a culture that is becoming ever more story-stupid, in which a representative of the Coca-Cola company can, with a straight face, pronounce, as he donates a collection of archival Coca-Cola commercials to the Library of Congress, that Coca-Cola has become an integral part of peoples lives by helping to tell these stories, it is perhaps not surprising that people have trouble teaching and receiving a novel as complex and flawed as Huck Finn, but it is even more urgent that we learn to look passionately and technically at stories, if only to protect ourselves from the false and manipulative ones being circulated among us." - Author: George Saunders

Quotes About The Rifle In The Pearl

"Lebedevas eyes shone. "Masha, listen to me. Cosmetics are an extension of the will. Why do you think all men paint themselves when they go to fight? When I paint my eyes to match my soup, it is not because I have nothing better to do than worry over trifles. It says, I belong here, and you will not deny me. When I streak my lips red as foxgloves, I say, Come here, male. I am your mate, and you will not deny me. When I pinch my cheeks and dust them with mother-of-pearl, I say, Death, keep off, I am your enemy, and you will not deny me. I say these things, and the world listens, Masha. Because my magic is as strong as an arm. I am never denied." - Author: Catherynne M. Valente

Quotes About Plus

"De plus en plus, les théories qui tentaient dexpliquer les phénomènes économiques, de prévoir leurs évolutions, lui apparaissaient a peu prés également inconsistantes, hasardeuses, elle était de plus en plus tentée de les assimiler a du charlatanisme pur et simple; il était même surprenant, se disait-elle parfois, quon attribue un prix Nobel déconomie, comme si cette discipline pouvait se prévaloir du même sérieux méthodologique, de la même rigueur intellectuelle que la chimie, ou que la physique." - Author: Michel Houellebecq
