Quotes About Films By Director

"There were many films made for both cinema and television, and in general I dont connect them very much with our books. I have one favorite: The Man on the Roof by director Bo Widerberg, which was based on The Abominable Man." - Author: Maj Sjowall

Quotes About Hiver

"Youve got to get cold to get warm," Phoebe said.Now that is the truth. That is so true about so many things. You learn it first with sheets and blankets: that the initial touch of the smooth sheets will send you shivering, but their warming works fast, and you must experience the discomfort to find the later contentment. Its true with money and love, too. Youve got to save to have something to spend. Think of how hard it is to ask out a person you like. In my case, Claire asked me to go on a date to the cash machine, so I didnt actually have to ask her. Still, her lips were cold, but her tongue was warm." - Author: Nicholson Baker

Quotes About Lotus Cars

"The Lotus is a couple of years newer than the Williams was, and as the pace of development in F1 cars is so quick, I expect it to be another completely different experience, but still one that I know Im going to enjoy." - Author: Nelson Piquet

Quotes About Comfort Room

"A first-rate college library with a comfortable campus around it is a fine milieu for a writer. There is, of course, the problem of educating the young. I remember how once, between terms, not at Cornell, a student brought a transistor set with him into the reading room. He managed to state that one, he was playing "classical" music; that two, he was doing it "softly"; and that three, "there were not many readers around in summer." I was there, a one-man multitude." - Author: Vladimir Nabokov

Quotes About Indescribable

"The indescribable innocence and beneficence of Nature-of sun and wind and rain, of summer and winter-such health, such cheer, they afford forever! and such sympathy have they ever with our race, that all Nature would be affected, and the suns brightness fade, and the winds would sigh humanely, and the clouds rain tears, and the woods shed their leaves and put on mourning in midsummer, if anyone should ever for a just cause grieve. Shall I not have intelligence with the earth? Am I not partly leaves and vegetable mould myself?" - Author: Henry David Thoreau

Quotes About Razor Blades

"Jacksonville was recently listed as "The most attractive city to commit suicide in" by the magazine "Razorblades and Cyanide." That should come as no surprise, as we have seven bridges from which to jump from." - Author: Jarod Kintz

Quotes About Eureka

"This is how great intellectual breakthroughs usually happen in practice. It is rarely the isolated genius having a eureka moment alone in the lab. Nor is it merely a question of building on precedent, of standing on the shoulders of giants, in Newtons famous phrase. Great breakthroughs are closer to what happens in a flood plain: a dozen separate tributaries converge, and the rising waters lift the genius high enough that he or she can see around the conceptual obstructions of the age." - Author: Steven Johnson

Quotes About Cruel Friends

"Life is hard and unfair. It is cruel and heartless, painful, trying, disappointing, unapologetic, and frequently downright awful. But thats not important. Whats important is that through it all you learn how much you need your Heavenly Father and how much your friends need you." - Author: Richelle E. Goodrich

Quotes About Delos

"All these my exaltation of mind has borne along with it and kept alive through the succession of the years, while all around them the paths have vanished and those who trod them, and even the memory of those who trod them, are dead. Sometimes the fragment of landscape thus transported into the present will detach itself in such isolation from all associations that it floats uncertainly in my mind like a flowering Delos, and I am unable to say from what place, from what time - perhaps, quite simply, from what dream - it comes. But it is pre-eminently as the deepest layer of my mental soil, as the firm ground on which I still stand, that I regard the Meseglise and the Guermantes ways. It is because I believed in this and in people while I walked along those paths that the things and the people they made known to me are the only ones that I still take seriously and that still bring me joy." - Author: Marcel Proust

Quotes About Famous Betting

"But as it turned out, the two had a great deal in common, for both Bailey and Thackeray (named for the famous novelist William Makepeace Thackeray, author of Vanity Fair) were devoted bibliophiles who believed that "a book a day kept the world at bay," as Thackeray was fond of saying. Bailey was the offspring of a generation of badgers who insisted that "Reader" was the most rewarding vocation to which a virtuous badger might be called and who gauged their weeks anticipated pleasure by the height of their to-be-read pile. (Perhaps you know people like this. I do.)" - Author: Susan Wittig Albert
