"Pianists call me a composer, composers call me a pianist. The classicists think me a futurist, and the futurists call me a reactionary."

Richard E Leakey Quotes

"Our self-awareness impresses itself on us so cogently, as individuals and as a species, that we cannot imagine ourselves out of existence, even though for hundreds of millions of years humans played no part in the flow of life on the planet. When Teilhard de Chardin wrote, "The phenomenon of Man was essentially foreordained from the beginning," he was speaking from the depth of individual experience, which we all share, as much as from religious philosophy. Our inability to imagine a world without Homo sapiens has a profound impact on our view of ourselves; it becomes seductively easy to imagine that our evolution was inevitable. And inevitability gives meaning to life, because there is a deep security in believing that the way things are is the way they were meant to be."

Quotes About Zulu Life

"And all those boys of Europe born in those times, and thereabouts those times, Russian, French, Belgian, Serbian, Irish, English, Scottish, Welsh, Italian, Prussian, German, Austrian, Turkish – and Canadian, Australian, American, Zulu, Gurkha, Cossack, and all the rest – their fate was written in a ferocious chapter in the book of life, certainly. Those millions of mothers and their million gallons of mothers milk, millions of instances of small talk and baby talk, beatings and kisses, ganseys and shoes, piled up in history in great ruined heaps, with a loud and broken music, human stories told for nothing, for ashes, for deaths amusement, flung on the mighty scrapheap of souls, all those million boys in all their humours to be milled by the millstones of a coming war." - Author: Sebastian Barry

Quotes About Accumulate

"When someone you love dies, and youre not expecting it, you dont lose her all at once; you lose her in pieces over a long time—the way the mail stops coming, and her scent fades from the pillows and even from the clothes in her closet and drawers. Gradually, you accumulate the parts of her that are gone. Just when the day comes—when theres a particular missing part that overwhelms you with the feeling that shes gone, forever—there comes another day, and another specifically missing part." - Author: John Irving

Quotes About Jumping In And Out Of Relationships

"And so, when the chips are down, I must say, though not without a sense of repugnance, that if you wish to show your belief in democracy, you also have to do so when you are in the minority, convinced both intellectually and, not least, in your innermost self, that the majority, in the name of democracy, is crushing everything you stand for and that means something to you, indeed, all that gives you the strength to endure, well, that gives a kind of meaning to your life, something that transcends your own fortuitous lot, one might say. When the heralds of democracy roar, triumphantly bawling out their vulgar victories day after day so that it really makes you suffer, as in my own case, you still have to accept it; I will not let anything else be said about me, he thought." - Author: Dag Solstad

Now he looked at them, from face to face, until he realized I had been loved by people he didnt even recognize. His heart filled up, warm again as it had not been in what seemed so long to him- save small forgotten moments with Buckley, the accidents of love that happened with his son. ~pgs 209-210; Buckley, Lindsey and Jack on Susie" - Author: Alice Sebold

Quotes About Ruining Everything

"I havent been a good guest in Hugos life. I access his memories and discover that he and Austin first became boyfriends at this very celebration, a year ago this weekend. Theyd been friends for a little while, but theyd never talked about how they felt. They were each afraid of ruining the friendship, and instead of making it better, their caution made everything awkward. So finally, as a pair of twentysomething men passed by holding hands, Austin said, "Hey, that could be us in ten years."And Hugo said, "Or ten months."And Austin said, "Or ten days."And Hugo said, "Or ten minutes."And Austin said, "Or ten seconds."Then they each counted to ten, and held hands for the rest of the day.The start of it.Hugo would have remembered this.But I didnt." - Author: David Levithan

Quotes About Nail Varnish

"Vida Winters appearance was not calculated for concealment. She was an ancient queen, sorceress or goddess. Her stiff figure rose regally out of a profusion of fat purple and red cushions. Draped around her shoulders, the folds of the turquoise-and-green cloth that had cloaked her body did not soften the rigidity of her frame. Her bright copper hair had been arranged into an elaborate confection of twists, curls and coils. Her face, as intricately lined as a map, was powdered white and finished with bold scarlet lipstick. In her lap, her hands were a cluster of rubies, emeralds and white, bony knuckles; only her nails, unvarnished, cut short and square like my own, struck an incongruous tone." - Author: Diane Setterfield
