Brandon W Forbes Quotes

"As a rule, we dont like to feel to sad or lonely or depressed. So why do we like music (or books or movies) that evoke in us those same negative emotions? Why do we choose to experience in art the very feelings we avoid in real life?Aristotle deals with a similar question in his analysis of tragedy. Tragedy, after all, is pretty gruesome. […] Theres Sophocless Oedipus, who blinds himself after learning that he has killed his father and slept with his mother. Why would anyone watch this stuff? Wouldnt it be sick to enjoy watching it? […] Tragedys pleasure doesnt make us feel "good" in any straightforward sense. On the contrary, Aristotle says, the real goal of tragedy is to evoke pity and fear in the audience. Now, to speak of the pleasure of pity and fear is almost oxymoronic. But the point of bringing about these emotions is to achieve catharsis of them - a cleansing, a purification, a purging, or release. Catharsis is at the core of tragedys appeal."

Susan Hubbard Quotes

"He said that academia reminded him of a badly run circus. The faculty members were like underfed animals -- weary of their cages, which were never large enough to begin with -- and they responded sluggishly to the whip. The trapeze artists fell with monotonous regularity into poorly strung nets. The clowns looked hungry. The tent leaked. The crowd was inattentive, shouting incoherently at inappropriate moments. And when the show was over, no one cheered."

Dorde Balaevic Quotes

"Imao sam puno takvih dana u životu i pamtim ih samo po tome što sam ih zaboravio...Oni su kao slike u decijim farbankama koje ožive tek kad se oko njih potrudiš, i ja sam, kao i svi, preskocio mnogo stranica tragajuci za slikama koje cu lakše obojiti."

Quotes About Like Minds

"The more I stare at it, the more the popcorn ceiling above me resembles an exquisite mosaic. Yellow rings from a leaky roof add pizazz to the imperfect white mounds; the reflection of a parked car outside the hotel room highlights the design in a brilliant, abstract pattern. I try to find a name for this provocative image and decide on "Cottage Cheese, Glorified."And thats when it becomes obvious that Im distracting myself from thinking about the U-turn my life just took. I wonder if Galen is back yet. I wonder what hes thinking. I wonder if Rayna is okay, if she has a killer headache like I do, if chloroform affects a full-blooded Syrena the way it affects humans. I bet that now she really will try to shoot my mom with her harpoon, which reminds me again of the past twenty-four hours of craziness." - Author: Anna Banks
