Khalia Hades Quotes

"Damn humans." I sat on my bike and scratch my crotch. I couldnt help it. "If they would only leave me the fuck alone."

"Ive never done too much inquiry into angels."

Guillermo Gonzalez Quotes

"Theres no obvious reason to assume that the very same rare properties that allow for our existence would also provide the best overall setting to make discoveries about the world around us. We dont think this is merely coincidental. It cries out for another explanation, an explanation that... points to purpose and intelligent design in the cosmos."

Ian St John Quotes

"If I had been trying to take the job away from him in a sneaky, underhand manner, then I deserved all I got. But it was the other way around. I was trying to get him the job."

Michael Richardson Quotes

"Surrealism, then, neither aims to subvert realism, as does the fantastic, nor does it try to transcend it. It looks for different means by which to explore reality itself."

Jordan Deen Quotes

"The feelings for each of them competing for space in my heart and justification in my mind."

Judith Thurman Quotes

"Theres some instinctive attraction that draws you, as a writer, to your subject. And the attraction usually has to do with some primal personal thing that, of course, you have no idea about. In the end, the piece always comes down to the one or two sentences you struggle over. The sentences where you try to say explicitly what it is that the two of you, subject and writer, have in common. Those are the sentences that you just bang your head against the wall over until you get them right. Its very hard to make that distillation but that is actually what your job is. Without trying to pin the person like a butterfly to the wall, to sum it up. If I can do that, then I feel satisfied. To give the subject a reality in the form of a sentence that is like a piece of rock crystal or a prism."

Quotes About Partnership In Marriage

"If the rights of civil partners are met differently in law to those of married couples, there is no discrimination in law, and if civil partnerships are seen as somehow second class that is a social attitude which will change and cannot, in any case, be turned around by redefining the law of marriage." - Author: John Sentamu

Quotes About Wolfowitz

"Then all at once our personal and political quarrels were made very abruptly to converge. In the special edition of the London Review of Books published to mark the events of September 11, 2001, Edward painted a picture of an almost fascist America where Arab and Muslim citizens were being daily terrorized by pogroms, these being instigated by men like Paul Wolfowitz who had talked of ending the regimes that sheltered Al Quaeda. Again, I could hardly credit that these sentences were being produced by a cultured person, let alone printed by a civilized publication." - Author: Christopher Hitchens

Quotes About Definition Of Life

"Veal, by definition, is the product of a sick, anemic, deliberately malnourished calf, a newborn dragged away from his mother in the first hours of life. Veal calves are dealt the harshest of punishments for the least essential of meats." - Author: Matthew Scully

Quotes About Steam

"Finally when he climbed below deck after dark, wondering where his dinner was, perhaps with a storm come up and rough seas and blinding rains, Id sulk and lure him into the warm and steamy darkness and from the hairs of his warm body Id breed a myriad smiling, sparkle-eyed one-year-olds, my broods, my flocks. In the churning seas, below the waves, together inside our hammock woven in coarse sailcloth by Unguentines deft hands, a spherical webbed sack which hung and swivelled between the two walls of our bedroom, we would spin round and round with lapping tongues and the soft suction of lips, whirling, our amorous centrifuge, all night long, zipped inside against the elements. Now, years and years later, those nights, the thought and touch of them is enough to make me throw myself down on the ground and roll in the dust like a hen nibbled by mites, generating clouds, stars and all the rest." - Author: Stanley Crawford

Quotes About Dar

"What makes Argia different from other cities is that it has earth instead of air. The streets are completely filled with dirt, clay packs the rooms to the ceiling, on every stair another stairway is set in negative, over the roofs of the houses hang layers of rocky terrain like skies with clouds. We do not know if the inhabitants can move about the city, widening the worm tunnels and the crevices where roots twist: the dampness destroys peoples bodies and they have scant strength; everyone is better off remaining still, prone; anyway, it is dark.From up here, nothing of Argia can be seen; some say, "Its down below there," and we can only believe them. The place is deserted. At night, putting your ear to the ground, you can sometimes hear a door slam." - Author: Italo Calvino

Quotes About Lack Of Communication

"...and I know what it is thats going to destroy the world. Lack of communication - reciprocal communication: cultural, political, intellectual - whatever you like. But more, its snobbery and self-deceit, which are artificial, protective barriers that prevent communication." - Author: Angus Stewart

Quotes About Francis Of Assisi

"The religious geniuses of all ages have been distinguished by this kind of religious feeling, which knows no dogma and no God conceived in mans image; so that there can be no church whose central teachings are based on it. Hence it is precisely among the heretics of every age that we find men who were filled with this highest kind of religious feeling and were in many cases regarded by their contemporaries as atheists, sometimes also as saints. Looked at in this light, men like Democritus, Francis of Assisi, and Spinoza are closely akin to one another." - Author: Albert Einstein
