[Unruly Beings Are As Unlimited As SpaceThey Cannot Possibly All Be Overcome,But If I Overcome Thoughts Of Anger AloneThis Will Be Equivalent To Vanquishing All Foes.Where Would I Possibly Find Enough LeatherWith Which To Cover The Surface Of The Earth?But (wearing) Leather Just On The Soles Of My ShoesIs Equivalent To Covering The Earth With It.Likewise It Is Not Possible For MeTo Restrain The External Course Of Things;But Should I Restrain This Mind Of MineWhat Would Be The Need To Restrain All Else?]

Raul Julia Quotes

"Maybe its like becoming one with the cigar. You lose yourself in it; everything fades away: your worries, your problems, your thoughts. They fade into the smoke, and the cigar and you are at peace."

Alison Weir Quotes

"As their forces broke, the Yorkist cavalrymen raced to the horse park behind their own lines and mounted their steeds to give chase. As they thundered past, the King and Warwick, flushed with victory, yelled, ‘Spare the commons! Kill the lords! Their words went unheeded."

"Overheard on a Saltmarsh"Nymph, nymph, what are your beads?Green glass, goblin. Why do you stare at them?Give them me.No.Give them me. Give them me.No.Then I will howl all night in the reeds,Lie in the mud and howl for them.Goblin, why do you love them so?They are better than stars or water,Better than voices of winds that sing,Better than any mans fair daughter,Your green glass beads on a silver ring.Hush, I stole them out of the moon.Give me your beads, I want them.No.I will howl in the deep lagoonFor your green glass beads, I love them so.Give them me. Give them.No."

Robin York Quotes

"I could feed you a line about how I want that because I think you need somebody to show you youre not broken, how youre beautiful and sexy and if youre dirty its only in the good way, the way everybody is dirty.

Quotes About Kureishi

"[T]he very multiculturalism and multiethnicity that brought Salman to the West, and that also made us richer by Hanif Kureishi, Nadeem Aslam, Vikram Seth, Monica Ali, and many others, is now one of the disguises for a uniculturalism, based on moral relativism and moral blackmail (in addition to some more obvious blackmail of the less moral sort) whereby the Enlightenment has been redefined as white and oppressive, mass illegal immigration threatens to spoil everything for everybody, and the figure of the free-floating transnational migrant has been deposed by the contorted face of the psychopathically religious international nihilist, praying for the day when his messianic demands will coincide with possession of an apocalyptic weapon. (These people are not called nihilists for nothing.) Of all of this we were warned, and Salman was the messenger. Mutato nomine et de te fabula narrator: Change only the name and this story is about you." - Author: Christopher Hitchens

Quotes About Chicanas

"Were afraid the others will think were agringadas because we dont speak Chicano Spanish. We oppress each other trying to out-Chicano each other, vying to be "real" Chicanas, to speak like Chicanos.

Quotes About Distant Family

She whispered the question in his ear, trying not to disturb Sheldon. The question hung there like a beautiful chord, ringing in the air. Henry was Chinese, Sheldon obviously wasnt. They looked nothing alike. Nothing at all. "Im distant family," Henry said." - Author: Jamie Ford

Quotes About Curveballs

Quotes About Old Objects

"Books are not holy relics, Trefusis had said. Words may be my religion, but when it comes to worship, I am very low church. The temples and the graven images are of no interest to me. The superstitious mammetry of a bourgeois obsession for books is severely annoying. Think how many children are put off reading by prissy little people ticking them off whenever they turn a page carelessly. The world is so fond of saying that book s should be "treated with respect". But when are we told that _words_ should be treated with respect? From our earliest years we are taught to revere only the outward and visible. Ghastly literary types maundering on about books as "objects"..." - Author: Stephen Fry

Quotes About Promiscuous

"If you spend any amount of time doing media analysis, its clear that the most frenzied moral panic surrounding young womens sexuality comes from the mainstream media, which loves to report about how promiscuous girls are, whether theyre acting up on spring break, getting caught topless on camera, or catching all kinds of STIs. Unsurprisingly, these types of articles and stories generally fail to mention that women are attending college at the highest rates in history, and that were the majority of undergraduate and masters students. Well-educated and socially engaged women just dont make for good headlines, it seems." - Author: Jessica Valenti

Quotes About Sartre Free Will

"Small children will talk to anyone, once the guard of shyness has fallen, and they have, like the elderly, a sense of immediacy, a need to say or do something, now, now, the minute it is thought of, combined with that other sense, of the complete irrelevance of time." - Author: Susan Hill
