Quotes About Self Affirmation

"Not only do I not know what I believe, but also I cannot know for sure that I believe. How can I define precisely what my attitude is toward something it cannot conceivably grasp? Can I be said to be in the relation of "belief," in any usual sense of that term, toward something that I cheerfully and readily acknowledge to be absolutely incomprehensible to me?(...) No man can be sure that he is in faith; and we can say of no man with certainty that he has or does not have faith. (...)Not only does faith always carry its opposite uncertainty within itself, but also this faith is never a static condition that is -had-, but a movement toward... And toward what? In the nature of the case we cannot state this "what." We cannot make a flat assertion about our faith like a simple assertion that we have blue eyes or are six feet tall. More than this, the affirmation of our faith can never be made in the simple indicative mood at all. The statement "I believe" can only be uttered as a prayer." - Author: William Barrett

Quotes About Akl

"Levin evleneli üç ay oluyordu. Mutluydu. Ama onun beklediği mutluluk değildi bu. Adımbaşı, eski hayallerinin kırıldığını hissediyor; yeni beklenmedik hayal kırıklıklarıyla karşılaşıyordu. Mutluydu, ama aile yaşamının içine girince her an, hayal ettiği şeyin bu olmadığını hissediyordu. Sıkça, durgun bir gölde küçücük bir kayığın düzgün, mutlu gidişini seyreden bir insanın, bu kayığa kendi bindiği anda hissedeceklerini hissediyordu. Bu kayıkta yolculuğun yalnızca sakin sakin, sallanmadan oturmak demek olmadığını, kayığın nereye gideceğini aklından bir an çıkarmamanın, durmadan düşünmenin, kafa yormanın; altında suyun olduğunu, kürek çekmek zorunda olduğunu unutmamasının, alışık olmadığı için avuç içleri acısa bile kürek çekmesinin gerektiğini, bunu seyretmenin hoş bir şey olduğunu, ama yapmanın, hoş olsa bile, çok güç olduğunu görüyordu.iletişim yayınları, sayfa:476." - Author: Leo Tolstoy

Quotes About Stand By Me

"When he had finished placing the objects that would be a part of the portrait, the artist asked his subject, "Why do you wish to include the top, milord?" He paused. "I ask this so that I may better understand its place in the portrait." "Because, when it is set in motion, it stands by its own rules. Then it is not an inert thing, like a tree, or a rock." Westcott had smiled. "Ah! But your hand must set it in motion, milord. So it cannot be as independent as you say." "It is the symbol of a soul, Mr. Westcott. Or of a mind. Every man has one, and it is like a top, fashioned by himself. He must keep it upright, by his own hand. He must exert the effort. Otherwise it will topple, and lay inert and useless within himself, not a living thing at all. Or another hand may set it in motion, and then he will have no say in its motion or course." Hugh paused. "This top has sentimental value to me, sir, and I wish to remember it." - Author: Edward Cline

Quotes About Long Weeks Of Work

"When Doris had died so long ago, it was weeks before Mary could think clearly and remember what she was supposed to do the next minute and then the minute after that. Even though Doris had shown Mary how to get rid of the chiggers that burrowed under the skin or how to add potatoes to bread to make it heavy so it would fill a stomach faster, she had never explained how she had survived the death of a husband and the loss of a child. Parents never told their real secrets. They never let you know how they lived in the spaces between working and cooking and running after children and counting dollars." - Author: Marisa Silver

Quotes About Awkward Love

"The first conversation began awkwardly, although Espinoza had been expecting Pelletiers call, as if both men found it difficult to say what sooner or later the would have to say. The first twenty minutes were tragic in tone, with the word fate used ten times and the word friendship twenty-four times. Liz Nortons name was spoken fifty times, nine of them in vain. The word Paris was said seven times, Madrid, eight. The word love was spoken twice, once by each man. The word horror was spoken six times and the word happiness once (by Espinoza). The word solution was said twelve times. The word solipsism seven times. The world euphemism ten times. The word category, in the singular and the plural, nine times. The word structuralism once (Pelletier). The term American literature three times. The words dinner or eating or breakfast or sandwich nineteen times. The words eyes or hands or hair fourteen times. The the conversation proceeded more smoothly." - Author: Roberto Bolaño
