[You Differ From A Great Man In Only One Respect: The Great Man Was Once A Very Little Man, But He Developed One Important Quality: He Recognized The Smallness And Narrowness Of His Thoughts And Actions. Under The Pressure Of Some Task That Meant A Great Deal To Him, He Learned To See How His Smallness, His Pettiness Endangered His Happiness. In Other Words, A Great Man Knows When And In What Way He Is A Little Man. A Little Man Does Not Know He Is Little And Is Afraid To Know. He Hides His Pettiness And Narrowness Behind Illusions Of Strength And Greatness, Someone Else's Strength And Greatness. He's Proud Of His Great Generals But Not Of Himself. He Admires An Idea He Has Not Had, Not One He Has Had. The Less He Understands Something, The More Firmly He Believes In It. And The Better He Understands An Idea, The Less He Believes In It.]

"Madge did the honors. "Are you…keeping company with Doc Piney?"Jesse answered carefully. "We are not dating, but we are seeing a lot of each other." Factually true.

The question is are you planning on breaking that mans heart again?"The suggestion was not at all what Jesse expected.She stuttered out an answer."I…I dont…I dont think Piney knows me well enough to get his heart broken," she managed finally."Oh, Lord, girl," Madge said. "Hes a Baxley. A more lovelorn line of men never graced the earth.""Thats the truth of that," Walter Lou agreed. "Those men dote on their women something fierce."

Quotes About Easy Route

"Its all strange to me. I know I live on a fierce and magical planet, which sheds or surrenders rain or even flings it off in whipstroke after whipstroke, which fires out bolts of electric gold into the firmament at 186,000 miles per second, which with a single shrug of its tectonic plates can erect a city in half an hour. Creation … is easy, is quick. Theres also a universe, apparently. But I cannot bear to see the stars, even though I know theyre there all right, and I do see them, because Tod looks upward at night, as everybody does, and coos and points. The Plough. Sirius, the dog. The stars, to me, are like pins and needles, are like the routemap of a nightmare. Dont join the dots.… Of the stars, one alone can I contemplate without pain. And thats a planet. The planet they call the evening star, the morning star. Intense Venus." - Author: Martin Amis
