Sir Sidney Lee Quotes

"I told you in the course of this paper that Shakespeare had a sister; but do not look for her in Sir Sidney Lees life of the poet. She died young--alas, she never wrote a word. She lies buried where the omnibuses now stop, opposite the Elephant and Castle. Now my belief is that this poet who never wrote a word and was buried at the crossroads still lives. She lives in you and in me, and in many other women who are not here tonight, for they are washing up the dishes and putting the children to bed. But she lives; for great poets do not die; they are continuing presences; they need only the opportunity to walk among us in the flesh."

David Lindsay Abaire Quotes

"We have this myth that if you work hard, you can accomplish anything. Its not a very American thing to say, but I dont think thats true. Its true for a lot of people, but you need other things to succeed. You need luck, you need opportunity, and you need the life skills to recognize what an opportunity is."

"en algún lugar al que nunca he viajado, gozosamente más alláde cualquier experiencia, tus ojos tienen su silencio:en tu gesto más frágil hay cosas que me abarcan,o que no puedo tocar porque están demasiado cercatu mirada más leve me abrirá fácilmenteaunque me haya cerrado como dedos,siempre me abres pétalo tras pétalo como la Primavera abre(tocando hábilmente, misteriosamente) su primera rosao si tu deseo fuera cerrarme, yo ymi vida nos cerraremos muy bellamente, súbitamente,como cuando el corazón de esta flor imaginala nieve cayendo cuidadosa por doquier;nada que hayamos de percibir en este mundo igualala fuerza de tu intensa fragilidad: cuya texturame domina con el color de sus campos,trayendo muerte y eternidad con cada respiro(yo no sé qué hay en ti que puede cerrary abrir; apenas algo en mí comprendeque la voz de tus ojos es más profunda que todas las rosas)nadie, ni siquiera la lluvia, tiene manos tan pequeñas" - Author: E.E.

Quotes About The Culture Of Poverty

"...the hippies of the 1960s did understand something. They were right in fighting the plastic culture, and the church should have been fighting it too... More than this, they were right in the fact that the plastic culture - modern man, the mechanistic worldview in university textbooks and in practice, the total threat of the machine, the establishment technology, the bourgeois upper middle class - is poor in its sensitivity to nature... As a utopian group, the counterculture understands something very real, both as to the culture as a culture, but also as to the poverty of modern mans concept of nature and the way the machine is eating up nature on every side." - Author: Francis August Schaeffer

Quotes About Sexual Love

"We watched each other evolve into parents, with all the fear, rage and confusion evolution can involve. Our eight-year-old is the incarnation of our union; we are forever fused by her blood. My old take on romance seemed vaguely ludicrous, as affected as a pair of spats. I no longer saw the point in getting back to normal, that pantomime of pretending nothing had changed; I wanted to evolve from sexual posturing into a deeper consciousness, that of love." - Author: Antonella Gambotto Burke
