GG Renee Hill Quotes

"Dread was always with her, an alarm system in her head, alertto her next disaster.Despite being resigned to a life of misfortune, she becameresourceful.She grudgingly noticed that things always worked out, evenwhen she claimed defeat.An inconvenient truth, yet it was right there, in her face,betraying her self-punishments and assumptions.She kept overcoming things, dammit, aggravating herself.She still felt so much joy, despite her efforts to be miserable.Her life was full of miracles and spectacles that she was afraidto rely on so she didnt know how to enjoy, how to be thankful,without guilt.She didnt want to win and she didnt want to lose.Ambiguity intrigued her and she found passion in the gapsbetween hope and despair."

Quotes About Maecenas

"Of all public figures and benefactors of mankind, no one is loved by history more than the literary patron. Napoleon was just a general of forgotten battles compared with the queen who paid for Shakespeares meals and beer in the tavern. The statesman who in his time freed the slaves, even he has a few enemies in posterity, whereas the literary patron has none. We thank Gaius Maecenas for the nobility of soul we attribute to Virgil; but he isnt blamed for the selfishness and egocentricity that the poet possessed. The patron creates literature through altruism, something not even the greatest genius can do with a pen." - Author: Roman Payne
