[Vendors Still Shivering In The Still-cool Air Gathered Around Me, Pushing Their Wares-chewing Gum, Biscuits, Baby Rattles, Cigarettes, Sold Individually Or By The Pack. I Didn't Want Anything, But They Kept Standing There; They Had Nothing Else To Do. A White Man Is Such An Anomaly, A Foundling From Another Planet, That Is It Possible To Stare At Him With Interest Almost Forever.]

Diana Killian Quotes

"But what? But it was just so much easier to deal with the old pain by ignoring it? Forgetting it? Andys presence meant having to actively work at forgiving him, and that was hard.

Quotes About Overworked

"Here the phenomenologist has nothing in common with the literary critic who, as has frequently been noted, judges a work that he could not create and, if we are to believe certain facile condemnations, would not want to create. A literary critic is a reader who is necessarily severe. By turning inside out like a glove an overworked complex that has become debased to the point of being part of the vocabulary of statesmen, we might say that the literary critic and the professor of rhetoric, who know-all and judge-all, readily go in for a simplex of superiority. As for me, being an addict of felicitous reading, I only read and re-read what I like, with a bit of readers pride mixed in with much enthusiasm." - Author: Gaston Bachelard
