Judy Davis Quotes

"Most women seem to be required to pit themselves against men in dramatic situations, and the men got to pit themselves against ideas or God."

Warren Heiti Quotes

"Mute, I stumble through the dry, verdigris aqueducts of your eye, thinking this prayer, formic acid, ant spit and sandpaper: blink and I will be expelled, sharpen the edge of the water, subtract me from eternity."

Susan Estrich Quotes

"People dont vote for vice president, they vote for president."

Rainey Qualley Quotes

"I always was drawn to the performing arts. I started dancing when I was two. I sang, loved to act, and loved going to visit my mom on-set. But she wanted me to have a normal childhood, so I wasnt really allowed to pursue acting till I got older."

Richard Cohen Quotes

"He [Edward Snowden] has been careful with his info, doling it out to responsible news organizations — The Post, the New York Times, the Guardian, etc. — and not tossing it up in the air, WikiLeaks style, and echoing the silly mantra "Information wants to be free." (No. Information, like most of us, wants a home in the Hamptons.)" – Richard Cohen, Washington Post (10/22/2013)"

Peter Atkins Quotes

"Theologians could not even agree about the nature of their gods. These personages ranged from "blue touch-paper gods" who started everything and never interfered again, to "infinitely meddlesome gods who, as well as starting it off, police every elementary particle."

Slobodan Novak Quotes

"I sada znam i da sam glupan, i da sam zato u lancima, i da sam zato u karanteni. Jer glupost nije defekt - ona je bolest. Bolest neizlježiva ako je urođena. Izliječiti se može samo onaj tko se njome zarazio. Defekt nije zarazan, i on se ne liječi, nego ispravlja. Zato glupost ne valja praštati, pa ni sebi. Učili su nas da izujemo cipelu ako šetamo sa hromim. Hromost je defekt, pa ni pred njom pametni ne žmire, nego rade plastiku i proteze. A biti obazriv prema glupanu, gore je nego skidati cipelu. To je kao da se iz solidarnosti grlimo s gubavcem, i gore još, jer glupost je pogibeljnija od mnogih strašnih bolesti - opasna je i zdravima."

Quotes About Compulsive Hoarding

"That they were torn from mistakes they had no chance to fix; everything unfinished. All the sins of love without detail, detail without love. The regret of having spoken, of having run out of time to speak. Of hoarding oneself. Of turning ones back too often in favour of sleep. I tried to imagine their physical needs, the indignity of human needs grown so extreme they equal your longing for wife, child, sister, parent, friend. But truthfully I couldnt even begin to imagine the trauma of their hearts, of being taken in the middle of their lives. Those with young children. Or those newly in love, wrenched from that state of grace. Or those who had lived invisibly, who were never know." - Author: Anne Michaels

Quotes About Pictures

"I was on a walking tour of Oxford colleges once with a group of bored and unimpressable tourists. They yawned at Balliols quad, T.E. Lawrences and Churchills portraits, and the blackboard Einstein wrote his E=mc2 on. Then the tour guide said, And this is the Bridge of Sighs, where Lord Peter proposed (in Latin) to Harriet, and everyone suddenly came to life and began snapping pictures. Such is the power of books." - Author: Connie Willis

Quotes About Otto Dix

"The Berlin of the 20s formed the foundation of my future education... the Berlin of the UFA studios, of Fritz Lang, Lubitsch and Erich Pommer.

Quotes About Politics And Money

"2. The news was prioritized in a way I could not understand. For instance, there was nothing on new mathematical observations or still-undiscovered polygons, but quite a bit about politics, which on this planet was essentially all about war and money. Indeed, war and money seemed to be so popular on the news, it should more accurately have been titled The War and Money Show." - Author: Matt Haig

Quotes About Phrase

"For the Bible, despite all its contradictions and absurdities, its barbarisms and obscenities, remains grand and gaudy stuff, and so it deserves careful study and enlightened exposition. It is not only lovely in phrase; it is also rich in ideas, many of them far from foolish. One somehow gathers the notion that it was written from end to end by honest men—inspired, perhaps, but nevertheless honest. When they had anything to say they said it plainly, whether it was counsel that enemies be slain or counsel that enemies be kissed. They knew how to tell a story, and how to sing a song, and how to swathe a dubious argument in specious and disarming words." - Author: H.L. Mencken

Quotes About Sherlock Holmes Moriarty

"But there can be no grave for Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson...Shall they not always live in Baker Street? Are they not there this moment, as one writes? Outside, the hansoms rattle through the rain, and Moriarty plans his latest devilry. Within, the sea-coal flames upon the hearth and Holmes and Watson take their well-won case...So they still live for all that love them well; in a romantic chamber of the heart, in a nostalgic country of the mind, where it is always 1895." - Author: Vincent Starrett

Quotes About Where Theres A Will Theres A Way

"The past is not a peaceful landscape lying there behind me, a country in which I can stroll wherever I please, and will gradually show me all its secret hills and dales. As I was moving forward, so it was crumbling. Most of the wreckage that can be seen is colourless, distorted, frozen: its meaning escapes me... all thats left is a skeleton. I shall never find my plans again, my hopes and fears - I shall not find myself." - Author: Simone de Beauvoir
