D B Weiss Quotes

"Who doesnt love Frogger? It draws its power from our shared memories of powerlessness. Wherever we are now, at one time or another we have all felt the poor frogs anxiety in the face of the worlds intransigence, its blind and callous disregard for our happiness or well-being."

Robert McKee Quotes

Quotes About Weakness Of Character

"For as we would wish that a painter who is to draw a beautiful face, in which there is yet some imperfection, should neither wholly leave out, nor yet too pointedly express what is defective, because this would deform it, and that spoil the resemblance; so since it is hard, or indeed perhaps impossible, to show the life of a man wholly free from blemish, in all that is excellent we must follow truth exactly, and give it fully; any lapses or faults that occur, through human passions or political necessities, we may regard rather as the shortcomings of some particular virtue, than as the natural effects of vice; and may be content without introducing them, curiously and officiously, into our narrative, if it be but out of tenderness to the weakness of nature, which has never succeeded in producing any human character so perfect in virtue as to be pure from all admixture and open to no criticism." - Author: Plutarch

Quotes About Live And Let Live

Quotes About Spreading Lies

"Why, lies are like a sticky juice overspreading the world, a living, growing flypaper to catch and gum the wings of every human soul. . . And the little helpless buzzings of honest, liberal, kindly people, arent they like the thin little noise flies make when theyre caught?" - Author: John Dos Passos

Quotes About Solon

"Oh, you know me." Jean reached behind his neck, down behind the loose leather vest he wore over his simple cotton tunic. He withdrew a pair of matching hatchets, each a foot and a half in length, with leather-wrapped handles and straight black blades that narrowed like scalpels. These were balanced with balls of blackened steel, each as wide around as a silver solon. The Wicked Sisters—Jeans weapons of choice. "I never travel alone. Its always the three of us." - Author: Scott Lynch

Quotes About Danger And Risk

"Knowledge equals power...The string was important. After a while the Librarian stopped. He concentrated all his powers of librarianship.Power equals energy...People were stupid, sometimes. They thought the Library was a dangerous place because of all the magical books, which was true enough, but what made it really one of the most dangerous places there could ever be was the simple fact that it was a library.Energy equals matter...He swung into an avenue of shelving that was apparently a few feet long and walked along it briskly for half an hour.Matter equals mass.And mass distorts space. It distorts it into polyfractal L-space.So, while the Dewey system has its fine points, when youre setting out to look something up in the multidimensional folds of L-space what you really need is a ball of string." - Author: Terry Pratchett

Quotes About Being Happy Again

"I think you just complimented me," said Jane. "You should take better care next time."The music had started, the couples had begun a promenade, but Mr. Nobley paused to hold Janes arm and whisper, "Jane Erstwhile, if I never had to speak with another human being but you, I would die a happy man. I would that these people, the music, the food and foolishness all disappeared and left us alone. I would never tire of looking at you or listening to you." He took a breath. "There. That compliment was on purpose. I swear I will never idly compliment you again."Janes mouth was dry. All she could think to say was, "But... but surely you wouldnt banish all the food."He considered, then nodded once. "Right. We will keep the food. We will have a picnic."And he spun her into the middle of the dance." - Author: Shannon Hale

Quotes About Climatic

"Compared to forest or aquatic ecosystems, grassland is unstable. It requires rather precise geological and climatic conditions, and if these conditions are not maintained--if too much rain falls, or too little--it quickly turns into forest or desert, both of which are dominated by woody plants. This instability is reflected in the spectacular but brief careers of various grassland faunas. Humanity, with its dazzling symbioses, preadaptations, and neoteny, is the most spectacular of these--and may well be the briefest." - Author: David Rains Wallace

Quotes About Van Morrison

"Gloria watched the swollen white orb of a hot-air balloon rising over Navy Pier and knew she had to break it off with Oliver, for he was the type who would never enjoy hot-air balloons, Van Morrison songs, or mess, whether from orgasm or otherwise. But who was she to be dreaming about mess today?" - Author: Andrea Kayne Kaufman

Quotes About Drugs Addiction

"I didnt see it happening, but the wheels were falling off of me. I didnt care about responsibilities like paying rent, I was just on a runaway train ride. The horribly ironic cosmic trick of drug addiction is that drugs are a lot of fun when you first start using them, but by the time the consequences manifest themselves, youre no longer in a position to say, Whoa, gotta stop that. Youve lost that ability, and youve created this pattern of conditioning and reinforcement. Its never something for nothing when drugs are involved." - Author: Anthony Kiedis

Quotes About Nervous Breakdowns

"Under the Volcano" embraces everything from Dante to Freud to the cabala. Here it shambles like Cervantes, there it rages like Ahab, and every page of it pulsates on Out of Body Auto-Reply, that style of pure Lowry that points at once backward, to all European literature, and forward, to the mother of all nervous breakdowns." - Author: Malcolm Lowry
