Jordana Spiro Quotes

"I used to play chess when I was a kid and participate in national-level tournaments with the geekiest guys. This one time, I was losing terribly, so I batted my eyelashes and flirted as I asked for a draw. My dad just couldnt believe it. He thought, What have I created, a floozy? But it worked!"

Don Berry Quotes

"The absolute negative, the ultimate saying of no to the world, when it is just too late. And always the subtle conviction that if you had said No a moment earlier, it would none of it have happened. But the saying of no comes too late by a little. You are always a little too late in saying it."

Andre Gorz Quotes

"Youre 82 years old. Youve shrunk six centimetres, you only weigh 45 kilos yet youre still beautiful, graceful and desirable. Weve lived together now for 58 years and I love you more than ever. I once more feel a gnawing emptiness in the hollow of my chest that is only filled when your body is pressed next to mine."

"CUSTOMER (to their friend): God, the Famous Five titles realy were crap, werent they? Five Go Camping. Five Go Off in a Caravan.... If it was Five Go Down To a Crack House it might be a bit more exciting." - Author: Jen Campbell

Quotes About Psalter

"According to Benedicts scheme, the community reads through... the entire book of Psalms every week. The monks are therefore exposed... to all the despairing, doubtful, bitter, vindictive, jingoistic, nationalistic, and seemingly racist passages in the Psalter. It is not that every sentiment expressed by a psalmist is admirable, but that in praying the Psalms, we confront ourselves as we really are. The Psalms are a reality check to keep prayer from becoming sentimental, superficial, or detached from the real world." - Author: Richard H. Schmidt

Quotes About Pet Companionship

"Religious teachings say that animals dont have souls, but I dont believe that. Our pets cherish our every move, and wait patiently for us to return home from a days work. Our pets would give their lives for us in a heartbeat and not ask for anything in return. How can man live without companionship when we were meant to live in a family unit, just like our canine friends? So, I ask you: How could a dog not have a soul?" - Author: Blake OConnor

Quotes About Judging Character

"Utter objectivity...is not only impossible when judging literature, its not exactly desirable. Fiction involves trace elements of magic; it works for reasons we can explain and also for reasons we cant. If novels or short-story collections could be weighed strictly in terms of their components (fully developed characters, check; original voice, check; solidly crafted structure, check; serious theme, check) they might satisfy, but they would fail to enchant. A great work of fiction involves a certain frisson that occurs when its various components cohere and then ignite.(Source: "Letter from the Pulitzer Fiction Jury: What Really Happened This Year" in The New Yorker.)" - Author: Michael Cunningham

Quotes About Story Plots

"Charity didnt mean to waste the entire afternoon. But her favorite daytime drama was on the telly. It was always the same, she thought, stretching out on the bed to watch. The sex got her interested first, and then the story. Before long she was totally hooked, and deep into the intricate plots and the glamorous goings-on. And afterwards, she just felt drained. She was sound asleep by the time Lady Margaret came home." - Author: Elizabeth Jane Howard

Quotes About Violencia

"Hay criminales que proclaman tan campantes ‘la maté porque era mía, así no más, como si fuera cosa de sentido común y justo de toda justicia y derecho de propiedad privada, que hace al hombre dueño de la mujer. Pero ninguno, ninguno, ni el más macho de los supermachos tiene la valentía de confesar ‘la maté por miedo, porque al fin y al cabo el miedo de la mujer a la violencia del hombre es el espejo del miedo del hombre a la mujer sin miedo." - Author: Eduardo Galeano
