Favorite Family Raisin In The Sun Quotes

1. "As I looked at her there among the pumpkins I was overcome with the color and the intesity of my life. In these moments we are driven to try and hoard happiness by taking photographs, but I know better. The improtant thing was what the colors stood for, the taste of hard apples and the existence of Lena and the exact quality of the sun on the last warm day in October. A photograph would have flattened the scene into a happy moment, whereas what I felt was rapture. The fleeting certainty that I deserved this space I'd been taking up on this earth, and all the air I had breathed."
Author: Barbara Kingsolver
2. "My mom and dad - they were always there. They were always on the set. They focused on our family life. The entertainment business wasn't the end-all. They weren't out to get the next big paycheck or the next big movie. It was about 'What can we do as a family.'"
Author: Candace Cameron Bure
3. "Grace commanded the second pew, her whole family jammed together, the six of them sour yet insistent, like the richest people flying coach, while behind her sat Charles Jr., never Charlie or Chuck, with his two girls, the ever blonde and blonder copies of his wife, who was six months pregnant with what I could only imagine was a blinding ball of blazing white light."
Author: David Gilbert
4. "All families are psychotic. Everybody has basically the same family - it's just reconfigured slightly different from one to the next."
Author: Douglas Coupland
5. "The workstation-class machines built by Sun and others opened up new worlds for hackers."
Author: Eric S. Raymond
6. "Such was the number of the barbarians, that when they shot forth their arrows the sun would be darkened by their multitude." Dieneces, not at all frightened at these words, but making light of the Median numbers, answered "Our Trachinian friend brings us excellent tidings. If the Medes darken the sun, we shall have our fight in the shade."
Author: Herodotus
7. "That old berk," muttered Aberforth, taking another swig of mead. "Thought the sun shone out of my brother's every orifice, he did."
Author: J.K. Rowling
8. "Families are wonderful institution," he said. "I value mine more than I can possibly say. But each of us has an individual life to live, our own path to tread, our own destiny to forge. You can imagine, if you will, how my family wished to shelter and protect me and do my living for me so that I would never again know fear or pain or abandonment. Eventually I had to step clear of them-or I might have fallen into the temptation of allowing them to do just that."
Author: Mary Balogh
9. "Helen opened her eyes and gazed into the luminous blue of the sky. Was it crazy, she wondered, to be as grateful as she felt now, for moments like this, in a world that had atomic bombs in it—and concentration camps, and gas chambers? People were still tearing each other into pieces. There was still murder, starvation, unrest, in Poland, Palestine, India—God knew where else. Britain itself was sliding into bankruptcy and decay. Was it a kind of idiocy or selfishness, to want to be able to give yourself over to the trifles: to the parp of the Regent's Park Band; to the sun on your face, the prickle of grass beneath your heels, the movement of cloudy beer in your veins, the secret closeness of your lover? Or were those trifles all you had? Oughtn't you, precisely, to preserve them? To make little crystal drops of them, that you could keep, like charms on a bracelet, to tell against danger when next it came?"
Author: Sarah Waters
10. "When the last dragon and the last elf break the circle, the past and the future will meet, and the sun of a new summer will shine in the sky. (The last Elf)"
Author: Silvana De Mari

Today's Quote

Nu exista decît o problema filosofica cu adevarat impor­tanta : sinuciderea. A hotarî daca viata merita sau nu sa fie traita înseamna a raspunde la problema fundamentala a filosofiei. Restul, daca lumea are trei dimensiuni, daca spiritul are noua sau douasprezece categorii, vine dupa aceea. Aces­tea sînt doar jocuri; dar mai întîi trebuie sa raspunzi. Si daca e adevarat, dupa cum sustine Nietzsche, ca un filosof, pentru a fi vrednic de stima, trebuie sa dea primul exemplul, întele­gem cît de important este raspunsul, de vreme ce el va pre­cede gestul definitiv. Iata niste evidente sensibile inimii, dar pe care trebuie sa le adîncim pentru câ mintea noastra sa le vada limpede."
Author: Albert Camus
