Quotes About Choosing A Candidate

"Most of Aesops fables have many different levels and meanings. There are those who make myths of them by choosing some feature that fits in well with the fable. But for most of the fables this is only the first and most superficial aspect. There are others that are more vital, more essential and profound, that they have not been able to reach." - Author: Michel de Montaigne

Quotes About Bruciare

"Incenerire i sogni. Bruciare i sogni è il segreto per abbattere definitivamente i propri nemici, perché non trovino più la forza di rialzarsi e ricominciare.

Se non permetti alle persone di sognare, le rendi schiave." - Author: Alessandro DAvenia

Quotes About Casuale

"Sono tutte linee" pensò e cominciò a vedere ognuna di quelle persone come una riga tracciata su unipotetica mappa. Un gigantesco groviglio di strade che si incrociavano, si sfioravano, si univano e poi proseguivano oltre. Là fuori, nelle vie del mondo, miliardi di linee, di percorsi di vita. Miliardi di direzioni. Strade intraprese deviate per caso, talvolta interrotte bruscamente. Pensò per un attimo che due innamorati altro non erano che due percorsi in balia del caos. Potevano disegnare i tragitti più assurdi sul mappamondo, dirigersi ovunque e mai incontrarsi. Oppure incrociarsi anche diverse volte e mai riconoscersi. Potevano prendere lo stesso autobus tutte le mattine, senza sapere niente luno dellaltro. Così fino alla fine dei loro giorni, senza mai interagire. Ma bastava così poco: uno scambio di battute, anche casuale, e le linee si sarebbero magicamente unite. Da grigi tratti di un solitario percorso sarebbero diventate ununica strada." - Author: Leonardo Patrignani

Quotes About Winners And Winning

"Thou mayest rule over sin, Lee. Thats it. I do not believe all men are destroyed. I can name you a dozen who were not, and they are the ones the world lives by. It is true of the spirit as it is true of battles--only the winners are remembered. Surely most men are destroyed, but there are others who like pillars of fire guide frightened men through the darkest. Thou mayest, thou mayest! What glory! It is true that we are weak and sick and quarrelsome, but if that is all we ever were, we would, millenniums ago, have disappeared from the face of the earth. A few remnants of fossilized jawbone, some broken teeth in strata of limestone, would be the only mark man would have left of his existence in the world. But the choice, Lee, the choice of winning!" - Author: John Steinbeck
