[When You Chopped Logs With The Ax And They Split Open They Smelled Beautiful, Like Christmas. But When You Split Someone's Head Open It Smelled Like Abattoir And Quite Overpowered The Scent Of The Wild Lilacs You'd Cut And Brought Into The House Only This Morning, Which Was Already Another Life.]

Stephane Courtois Quotes

"1918 წლის 10 აგვისტოს ლენინი სურსათით მომარაგების "ნარკომს" (სახალხო კომისარს), ციურუპას, სთავაზობს დეკრეტის პროექტს: "...მარცვლეულის მწარმოებელ ყველა რეგიონში შეძლებულთა ფენიდან შეარჩიეთ 25-30 მძევალი, რომლებიც საკუთარი სიცოცხლით აგებენ პასუხს რეკვიზიციის გეგმის შეუსრულებლობისთვის". ციურუპამ, იმის მომიზეზებით, რომ მძევლების შერჩევის ორგანიზება ძნელი იყო, წაუყრუა. მაშინ ლენინმა მას მეორე, სრულიად არაორაზროვანი მითითება გაუგზავნა: "მე მძევლების აყვანას კი არ გთავაზობთ, არამედ მათ დანიშვნას თითოეულ ოლქში. ამ დანიშვნის მიზანია, რომ მდიდრებმა, რომლებიც თავიანთ კონტრიბუციაზე აგებენ პასუხს, ასევე საკუთარი სიცოცხლით აგონ პასუხი თავიანთსავე ოლქში რეკვიზიციის გეგმის დაუყოვნებლივ შესრულებაზე."

Quotes About Funny Yarn

"Fan would have expected that one or two of the Girls would have long rebelled at spending a life in a room, would have begged, say, the dentist, to help them steal away, but the funny thing about this existence is that once firmly settled we occupy it with less guard than we know. We watch ourselves routinely brushing our teeth, or coloring the wall, or blowing off the burn from a steaming yarn of soup noodles, and for every moment there is a companion moment that elides onto it, a secret span that deepens the originals stamp. We feel ever obliged by everyday charges and tasks. They conscript us more and more. We find world enough in a frame. Until at last we take our places at the wheel, or wall, or line, having somewhere forgotten that we can look up." - Author: Chang rae Lee

Quotes About Focusing On The Future

"If we define optimism broadly as the tendency to maintain a positive outlook, then realistic optimism is the tendency to maintain a positive outlook within the constraints of the available "measurable phenomena situated in the physical and social world" (DeGrandpre, 2000, p. 733). With respect to fuzzy meaning, realistic optimism involves enhancing and focusing on the favorable aspects of our experiences. Examples include being lenient in our evaluation of past events, actively appreciating the positive aspects of our current situation, and routinely emphasizing possible opportunities for the future. With respect to fuzzy knowledge, realistic optimism involves hoping, aspiring, and searching for positive experiences while acknowledging what we do not know and accepting what we cannot know." - Author: Sandra L. Schneider
