Quotes About Sabahattin

"Prens Sabahattinin adı hiç duydun mu?" diye sordu Nusret. "Her neyse. Şimdi Pariste. O da bir Jöntürk sayılır. Bütün prensler gibi aptalın tekidir, ama bir düşüncesi var..." Eliyle odanın bir köşesindeki kitapları işaret etti. "Ya da, herkesin yaptığı gibi, başkasından aşırılmış bir düşüncesi var ki, doğru buluyorum. Demolinse göre İngilizlerin üstünlüğünü, orada bireylerin, insanların daha özgür olmasında aramak lâzım. İşte, bizde bu yok. Bizde öyle özgür, aklını kullanan, girişken insan yok! Bizde herkes köle, herkes boyun eğmek, toplumun içinde erimek, anneyle teyzenin saçma tehditleri. Din, korku, karanlık düşünceler, ezberlenmiş şeyler... Sonunda boyun eğmekten başka bir şey öğrenmiyorlar. Kimse kendi çabasıyla, topluma karşı çıkarak yükselmiyor. Kimse kendi hesabına düşünmüyor. Düşünürse, korkuyor... Herkes olsa olsa kendi hesabına kulluk ediyor." (...)" - Author: Orhan Pamuk

Quotes About Toga

"A ako patnje djece samo popunjavaju onu količinu patnje koja je bila potrebna da se otkupi istina, onda unaprijed tvrdim da sva istina ne vrijedi toga...Ja ne želim harmoniju, ne želim je iz ljubavi prema čovječanstvu. Radije ću ostati sa svojim neosvećenim patnjama. Radije ću ostati na svojoj neosvećenoj patnji i na svom neiskaljenom ogorčenju, makar i ne bio u pravu. Pa i previsoku su cijenu odredili toj harmoniji, nije za naš džep tolika ulaznica. I zato hitam da vratim svoju ulaznicu. Ako sam pošten čovjek, dužan sam je što prije vratiti. To upravo i činim. Nije da ja Boga ne priznajem, Aljoša, nego mu samo najponiznije vraćam ulaznicu." - Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Quotes About Speaking Properly

"Given my antipathy for the paparazzi, she thinks its hysterical that Im so attached to my cameras. But to me, what I do is the anti-paparazzi. TMZsters want to capture surface. If a pictures in focus, its great. My goal is to capture what the surface is hiding. Theres a story behind every face, every landscape, every still life. Theres a soul in every subject, and when my camera and I are really speaking, really working together properly, we can capture it." - Author: Hilary Duff
