"Kids arent born to be bullies, theyre taught to be bullies."

Dave Matthes Quotes

"Remove the exclamation point, replace it with an ellipsis; the real delusion is believing there is a beginning and an end, an Alpha and an Omega, when really they are just sugar pills force fed in excess by those who crave control, power, and the next form of "obsession". Instead of collapsing with the rest of them, be the one who shatters the mold, breach this worlds security and spread the word that there is no end...there is only the horizon and beyond..."

And I know that your therapist thinks your limps psychosomatic, quite correctly Im afraid.

Richard Davenport Hines Quotes

"Western civilisation, the élitists all understood, is built upon discrimination: a culture that does not rest on discrimination, that penalises people who discriminate, or rewards the undiscriminating, is worth very little and has only callow, childish pleasures."

"Over time I learned that there were a lot of people who would judge you, blame you, and try to make you feel lesser, no matter what you did; that a degree, a good suit, and a career wouldnt always insulate you from scorn."

Quotes About Words Of Affirmation

"A voice from the dark called out,"The poets must give usimagination of peace, to oust the intense, familiarimagination of disaster. Peace, not onlythe absence of war."But peace, like a poem,is not there ahead of itself,cant be imagined before it is made,cant be known exceptin the words of its making,grammar of justice,syntax of mutual aid.A feeling towards it,dimly sensing a rhythm, is all we haveuntil we begin to utter its metaphors,learning them as we speak.A line of peace might appearif we restructured the sentence our lives are making,revoked its reaffirmation of profit and power,questioned our needs, allowedlong pauses. . . .A cadence of peace might balance its weighton that different fulcrum; peace, a presence,an energy field more intense than war,might pulse then,stanza by stanza into the world,each act of livingone of its words, each worda vibration of light--facetsof the forming crystal." - Author: Denise Levertov

Quotes About Ungrateful Friendship

"Learn how to carry a friendship greatly, whether or not it is returned. Why should one regret if the receiver is not equally generous? It never troubles the sun that some of his rays fall wide and vain into ungrateful space, and only a small part on the reflecting planet. Let your greatness educate the crude and cold companion. If he is unequal, he will presently pass away; but thou art enlarged by thy own shining." - Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson

Quotes About Dialog

"My favourite characters are people who think theyre normal but theyre not. I live in Baltimore, and its full of people like that. Ive also lived in New York, which is full of people who think theyre crazy, but theyre completely normal. I get my best material in Baltimore – you get dialogue that you just couldnt imagine. I asked this guy in a bar what he did for a living and he said he traded deer meat for crack. I never realised that job even existed. You could make a whole movie about that person. And he was kind of cute too, if you could ignore his eyes rolling around his head. Although I did crack once, accidentally, and I thought: Oh my God, what, am I gonna rob my parents now? I prefer poppers – theyre legal in London, right? I used to do them on roller coasters. Theyre illegal in Provincetown, which is the gay fishing village where I live in the summer. In the airport there are signs warning you to get rid of your poppers." - Author: John Waters

Quotes About Absurdum

"Quando lombra del telaio si disegnò sulle tendine era tra le sette e le otto del mattino, e fui di nuovo dentro il tempo, sentendo il ticchettio dellorologio. Era quello del nonno e quando me lo diede il babbo disse: Quentin, eccoti il mausoleo di ogni speranza e desiderio; è molto probabile, purtroppo, che te ne serva anche tu per ottenere il reducto absurdum di ogni umana esperienza, che non farà per i tuoi bisogni individuali più di quanto fece per i suoi o per quelli di suo padre. Non te lo do perché tu possa ricordarti del tempo, ma perché ogni tanto tu possa dimenticarlo per un attimo e non sprecare tutto il tuo fiato nel tentativo di vincerlo. Perché, disse, le battaglie non si vincono mai. Non si combattono nemmeno. Luomo scopre, sul campo, solo la sua follia e disperazione, e la vittoria è unillusione dei filosofi e degli stolti." - Author: William Faulkner
