[When We Got Back To The House Logan Grabbed His Basketball, Threw It Really Hard Against The Hallway Wall, Knocked The Framed Family Photo To The Floor-it Didn't Break, He Didn't Pick It Up-and Left With A Couple Of His Friends. Thebes Picked Up The Photo, Hung It Back On The Wall, Sighed Heavily Like She'd Travelled To Every Corner Of The World, On Her Knees, With A Knife In Her Back And A Boa Constrictor Wrapped Around Her Chest, And Then Made Us A Couple Of Blueberry Smoothies.]

Howard Jacobson Quotes

"Art is made by those who consider themselves to have failed at whatever isnt art. And of course it is loved as consolation, or a call to arms, by those who feel the same. One of the reasons there seem to be fewer readers for literature today than there were yesterday is that the concept of failure has been outlawed. If we are all beautiful, all clever, all happy, all successes in our way, what do we want with the language of the dispossessed? But the nature of failure ensures that writers will go on writing no matter how many readers they have. You have to master the embarrassments and ignominies of life."

Quotes About Voordeel

"Het nietsontziende despotisme van de huidige maatschappij heeft volstrekt niets van doen met de zachtaardige gezagsuitoefenng van een vader, die meer gericht is op het voordeel van degeen die gehoorzaamt dan op het nut voor degeen die beveelt; dat krachtens de natuurwet de vader slechts zolang het gezag over het kind heeft als het kind zijn bijstand nodig heeft, dat zij daarna op gelijke voet komen en het kind volstrekt onafhankelijk wordt van zijn vader." - Author: Jean Jacques Rousseau

Quotes About Answers To Questions

"I learned a lot that night—like how incredibly mind blowing ho-hos and wine coolers were together, how that you could discover the answers to lifes most difficult questions by watching Buffy, but most of all, that no matter what was going on in life—a best friend could make it all seem bearable." - Author: Peggy Martinez

Quotes About Questioning Society

"Those are life-and-death-type experiences he goes through in the mines. Eventually he gets out and goes back to his old life. But nothing in the novel shows he learned anything from these experiences, that his life changed, that he thought deeply now about the meaning of life or started questioning society or anything. You dont get any sense, either, that hes matured. You have a strange feeling after you finish the book. Its like you wonder what Soseki was trying to say. Its like not really knowing what hes getting at is the part that stays with you." - Author: Haruki Murakami

Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilights last gleaming. Amen and Awomen." - Author: George Carlin
