Favorite Ndes Quotes

1. "She was left to beg for mercy only to burn in torment again the next day. She was a weed struggling through cracks of concrete, unwanted, undesired, crushed and abused under trampling feet. She would never see the sun. She would never be free. She would always be a solitary candle in the dark, cold without a flame to warm it, forever peering out at the world through a laminated sheet of glass too thick to penetrate. When she died, if she was ever allowed, no one would ever know. She would pass a faded ghost of a girl abandoned by all."
Author: Airicka Phoenix
2. "Regular maps have few surprises: their contour lines reveal where the Andes are, and are reasonably clear. More precious, though, are the unpublished maps we make ourselves, of our city, our place, our daily world, our life; those maps of our private world we use every day; here I was happy, in that place I left my coat behind after a party, that is where I met my love; I cried there once, I was heartsore; but felt better round the corner once I saw the hills of Fife across the Forth, things of that sort, our personal memories, that make the private tapestry of our lives."
Author: Alexander McCall Smith
3. "I'm perfectly discriminating,' he said with a devilish smile. 'How's that? No blondes after Labour Day?' 'I said I was discriminating, not an imbecile."
Author: Ally Blake
4. "In the shadow of my hurt, forgiveness feel like a decision to reward my enemy. But in the shadow of the cross, forgiveness is merely a gift from one undeserving soul to another."
Author: Andy Stanley
5. "But the mysterious and private heart never ceases to beat. Indestructible and immortal, the heart beats on, independent, and beating for me alone…"
Author: Anna Kavan
6. "The human spirit is not indestructible; but a courageous few discover that, when in hell, they are granted a glimpse of heaven."
Author: Anthony Storr
7. "Uncertain as I was as I pushed forward, I felt right in my pushing, as if the effort itself meant something. That perhaps being amidst the undesecrated beauty of the wilderness meant I too could be undesecrated, regardless of the regrettable things I'd done to others or myself or the regrettable things that had been done to me. Of all the things I'd been skeptical about, I didn't feel skeptical about this: the wilderness had a clarity that included me."
Author: Cheryl Strayed
8. "Las grandes esperanzas que se tienen en la vida a veces se transforman en pequeñas piedras con las que se puede tropezar."
Author: Christoph Marzi
9. "The anti-apartheid prisoners on the island, like so many in every age and nation, found that Shakespeare had a peculiar ability to gentle their condition. They used to gather clandestinely to read the plays; on one occasion, the book was passed around for each man to mark his favourite lines."
Author: Daniel Hannan
10. "Tu e todo o mundo têm noção de que há ou deverá haver uma existência para além de nós. Qual seria o sentido de eu ter sido criada, se estivesse contida apenas em mim mesma? Os grandes desgostos que tive foram os desgostos de Heathcliff, e eu senti cada um deles desde o início: o que me faz viver é ele. Se tudo o mais acabasse, e ele permanecesse, eu continuaria a existir; e, se tudo o mais permanecesse e ele fosse aniquilado, o universo transformar-se-ia um imenso desconhecido. O meu amor por Linton é como a folhagem das florestas. O tempo transformá-lo-á, tenho a certeza, da mesma forma que o Inverno transforma o arvoredo. O meu amor por Heathcliff lembra as rochas eternas: proporciona uma alegria pouco visível, mas é necessário. Nelly, eu sou Heathcliff!""
Author: Emily Brontë
11. "If the meaning of life has become doubtful, if one's relations to others and to oneself do not offer security, then fame is one means to silence one's doubts. It has a function to be compared with that of the Egyptian pyramids or the Christian faith in immortality: it elevates one's individual life from its limitations and instability to the plane of indestructability; if one's name is known to one's contemporaries and if one can hope that it will last for centuries, then one's life has meaning and significance by this very reflection of it in the judgments of others."
Author: Erich Fromm
12. "2. It is admitted that when in recent times the appearance of our Saviour Jesus Christ had become known to all men there immediately made its appearance a new nation; a nation confessedly not small, and not dwelling in some corner of the earth, but the most numerous and pious of all nations, indestructible and unconquerable, because it always receives assistance from God. This nation, thus suddenly appearing at the time appointed by the inscrutable counsel of God, is the one which has been honored by all with the name of Christ."
Author: Eusebius
13. "Ainda agora o mundo é livre para as almas grandes. Para os que vivem solitários ou aos pares ainda há muitos sítios vagos onde se aspira a fragrância dos mares silenciosos."
Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
14. "Além todo o discurso é vão! A melhor sabedoria é esquecer e passar: foi isto que aprendeste agora."
Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
15. "L'action, pour certains hommes, est d'autant plus impraticable que le désir est plus fort. La méfiance d'eux-mêmes les embarrasse, la crainte de déplaire les épouvante; d'ailleurs, les affections profondes ressemblent aux honnêtes femmes; elles ont peur d'être découvertes, et passent dans la vie les yeux baissés."
Author: Gustave Flaubert
16. "Exactamente lo mismo me pasó, años después con el baile. Mis hermanas eras todas grandes bailarinas, y yo tenía buen oído, como ellas, al menos para cantar, pero cuando ellas me invitaba a bailar, yo ponía el acento del baile donde no era, con una arritmia total, o con el mismo ritmo de las risas de ellas cuando me veían mover los pies."
Author: Héctor Abad Faciolince
17. "Unconscious, perhaps, of the remote tendency of his own labours, he [Joseph Black] undermined that doctrine of material heat, which he seemed to support. For, by his advocacy of latent heat, he taught that its movements constantly battle, not only some of our senses, but all of them; and that, while our feelings make us believe that heat is lost, our intellect makes us believe that it is not lost. Here, we have apparent destructibility, and real indestructibility. To assert that a body received heat without its temperature rising, was to make the understanding correct the touch, and defy its dictates. It was a bold and beautiful paradox, which required courage as well as insight to broach, and the reception of which marks an epoch in the human mind, because it was an immense step towards idealizing matter into force."
Author: Henry Thomas Buckle
18. "Undeservedly you will atone for the sins of your fathers."
Author: Horace
19. "Koken e njeriut sikur mbi qafe t'ia ngjiste kalit piktoridhe gjymtyreve te mbledhura gjithandej t'ua shartontepuplat e larme asisoj qe gruaja lart mbi bel, fort e bukur,te shnderrohej ne nje peshk te shemtuar e te perhime, ju te ftuar per te pare, o miq te mi, a do te permbaheni se qeshuri?Me besoni, o Pizone, se krejt i ngjashem do te ishte ne pamje edhe libri, kur si ne jermim te te semurit, te perfytyroheshinfigurat fantastike, qe as koka, as kemba asnje trupi s'do ti pergjigjeshin. "Piktoret, ashtu edhe poetet, kane pasur te njejten mundesi qe me guxim te krijonin cdo gje."
Author: Horace
20. "Why should we cherish "objectivity", as if ideas were innocent, as if they don't serve one interest or another? Surely, we want to be objective if that means telling the truth as we see it, not concealing information that may be embarrassing to our point of view. But we don't want to be objective if it means pretending that ideas don't play a part in the social struggles of our time, that we don't take sides in those struggles. Indeed, it is impossible to be neutral. In a world already moving in certain directions, where wealth and power are already distributed in certain ways, neutrality means accepting the way things are now. It is a world of clashing interests – war against peace, nationalism against internationalism, equality against greed, and democracy against elitism – and it seems to me both impossible and undesirable to be neutral in those conflicts."
Author: Howard Zinn
21. "Imelik, et just ilusad poisid või jälle need, kes end ise elukullideks peavad, paluvad alati teisi endale mõnd suurt teenet osutada. Kuna nad on endast nii koledasti sisse võetud, arvavad nad, et ka teised on nendest sisse võetud ja et sa muud ei igatsegi, kui ainult nendele teeneid teha."
Author: J.D. Salinger
22. "You may only call me "Mrs. Darcy"... when you are completely, and perfectly, and incandescently happy."
Author: Jane Austen
23. "History is the art of making an argument about the past by telling a story accountable to evidence. In the writing of history, a story without an argument fades into antiquarianism; an argument without a story risks pedantry. Writing history requires empathy, inquiry, and debate. It requires forswearing condescension, cant, and nostalgia. The past isn't quaint. Much of it, in fact, is bleak."
Author: Jill Lepore
24. "What you learn is often determined by what you need to know. If you think you're weak, you will learn that you are strong. If you think you are indestructible, you will learn that you are fragile. In the end though, you will learn that you are human. You are no more and no less than all those who are learning their lessons as you learn yours."
Author: John Bingham
25. "Os nossos historiógrafos, há seis mil luas, não fazem referência a outras regiões senão aos dois grandes impérios de Lilipute e de Blefuscu. Estas duas poderosaspotências têm, como ia dizendo, andado empenhadas, durante trinta e seis luas, numa guerra"
Author: Jonathan Swift
26. "No viven juntás las gentes sin más ni más y porque sí; esa cohesion a priori sólo existe en la familia. Los grupos que integran un Estado viven juntos para algo: son una comunidad de propósitos, de anhelos, de grandes utilidades. No conviven por estar juntos, sino para hacer juntos algo."
Author: José Ortega Y Gasset
27. "KARENO (sitter ved skrivebordet. Han er 50 år, skjeggløs, med nesten hvitt hår, iført slitte, grå klær): Min filosofis fremtid, sier De? Det kommer jo an på om den har noen fremtid. BONDESEN (56 år, tykk, med neseklemme, litt lapset kledd, i en stol): De har dog allerede fått Deres parti. KARENO: Jeg er formann i en forening, det er alt. Folk tror den dag idag at filosofi er tenkning; jeg har ment at filosofi var livet teoretisk uttrykt ved tenkning."
Author: Knut Hamsun
28. "Calm and repose are what he prizes; victory (by force of arms) is to him undesirable."
Author: Lao Tzu
29. "It wasn't a place of worship, they explained, with a note of whinnying condescension, but a community devoted to the most absolute possible expression, or incarnation--or perhaps realization was an even better word--of the incomprehensibly complex but infinitely pure sylvan values of centaurhood, which Quentin's fallen human brain could never hope to grasp. There was something distinctly German about the centaurs."
Author: Lev Grossman
30. "[Immigrants] who come from anywhere there is hunger, unemployment, oppression, and violence and who clandestinely cross the borders of countries that are prosperous, peaceful, and rich in opportunity, are certainly breaking the law, but they are exercising a natural and moral right which no legal norm or regulation should try to eliminate: the right to life, to survival, to escape the infernal existence they are condemned to by barbarous regimes entrenched on half the earth's surface. If ethical considerations had any pervasive effect at all, the women and men who brave the Straits of Gibraltar or the Florida Keys or the electric fences of Tijuana or the docks of Marseilles in search of work, freedom, and a future should be received with open arms."
Author: Mario Vargas Llosa
31. "Jeg ville gerne være højere, så jeg kunne se dig i øjnene, jeg ville gerne expandere, så jeg kunne rumme os begge, jeg ville gerne koncentrere mig, så det hele kunne nås inden for dette øje-bliks grænser, så ingen overflødige ord skulle spilde tiden med at forbinde vore afstandes sår, jeg ville gerne koncentrere mig, så ordenes mislykkede graviditeter blev afbrudt, så nye afstande døde før fødselen, jeg ville gerne være højere, så jeg kunne se dig i øjnene, jeg ville gerne indfange dine øjnes udtryk og indtryk; men afstanden er for stor, og du ser det hele fra en anden vinkel - ser ned på mit forståelsessøgende blik."
Author: Michael Strunge
32. "I don't think it's true that blondes have more fun... Trust me, it is not true!"
Author: Mila Kunis
33. "De esta materia prima están hechos los grandes cuentos, ¿no? Puro romanticismo. En los cuentos, las parejas así viven felices para siempre. Pero los cuentos no dicen lo que sucede cuando se hace eso y se ofende a la familia más poderosa del mundo."
Author: N.K. Jemisin
34. "A lot of (children's literature) beginners get bogged down by morals. A moral should never be driving the story. And a moral should never be confused with a plot. You can't preach to kids, and you can't talk down to them, either. It's amazing how they sense condescension."
Author: Patty Smith
35. "Often times the public school teachers are ridiculed or they are made to feel inferior but this is really undeserved."
Author: Peter Agre
36. "Despite our instinct to polarize ourselves in the name of survival, an indescribable connection - call it love or compassion - pervades and dissolves our apparent separation. This oneness transcends physical and emotional relationships; it's a deep connection that surfaces only when the ego-laden barriers are lifted."
Author: Rajeev Kurapati
37. "You are the one star I wish upon nightly, praying your glory will fall from the heavens and land in my undeserving arms."
Author: Richelle E. Goodrich
38. "In the Somme valley, the back of language broke. It could no longer carry its former meanings. World War I changed the life of words and images in art, radically and forever. It brought our culture into the age of mass-produced, industrialized death. This, at first, was indescribable."
Author: Robert Hughes
39. "Throwing blondes at Locke Lamora was not unlike throwing lettuce at sharks."
Author: Scott Lynch
40. "I'm a terrible patient, and I find that doctors can be very condescending."
Author: Sherry Stringfield
41. "Mais en fait les voix féminines se taisent là où commence l'action concrète; elles ont pu susciter des guerres, non suggérer la tactique d'une bataille; elles n'ont guère orienté la politique que dans la mesure où la politique se réduisait à l'intrigue: les vraies commandes du monde n'ont jamais été aux mains des femmes; elles n'ont pas agi sur les techniques ni sur l'économie, elles n'ont pas fait ni défait des États, elles n'ont pas découvert des mondes. C'est par elles que certains événements ont été déclenchés: mais elles ont été prétextes beaucoup plus qu'agents."
Author: Simone De Beauvoir
42. "Ten years I toiled for that man without reward. Ten years of my incessant labor has contributed to increase the bulk of his possessions. Ten years I was compelled to address him with downcast eyes and uncovered head—in the attitude and language of a slave. I am indebted to him for nothing, save undeserved abuse and stripes."
Author: Solomon Northup
43. "Al igual que una madre. ¿Qué haría una madre si no pudiera quejarse sobre ti y hacerte limpiar tu habitación? ¿Y qué harías tú sin ella quejándose y haciendo que lo hagas? Todo el mundo necesita una madre. Y una madre lo sabe. Y le da un sentido de propósito. ¿Lo entiendes?"
Author: Stephen Chbosky
44. "Anime has sent me all over the world, introducing me to people who have touched my life in indescribably profound ways."
Author: Steven Blum
45. "Je préfère les natures humaines qui ressemblent aux lacs gelés à celles qui ressemblent aux marais. Les premières sont dures et froides en surface mais profondes, tourmentées et vivantes en dessous. Les secondes sont douces et spongieuses d'apparence mais leur fond est inerte et imperméable."
Author: Sylvain Tesson
46. "The dove descending breaks the airWith flame of incandescent terrorOf which the tongues declareThe one discharge from sin and error.The only hope, or else despairLies in the choice of pyre or pyre-To be redeemed from fire by fire.Who then devised the torment? Love.Love is the unfamiliar NameBehind the hands that woveThe intolerable shirt of flameWhich human power cannot remove.We only live, only suspireConsumed by either fire or fire."
Author: T.S. Eliot
47. "The world may perish, but the meat grinder is indestructible." (112)"
Author: Tatyana Tolstaya
48. "Mutuality has tumbled into undeserved obscurity by the primacy our society places on the art of the deal. The prevailing myth reaching most contemporary ears is this: relationships are 50-50. When one person does a nice thing for the other, he is entitled to an equally pleasing benefit – the sooner, the better, under the terms of this erroneous dictum. The physiology of love is no barter. (208)"
Author: Thomas Lewis
49. "Father Adam!"But the little man said nothing, did nothing. He stood still holding the letter, and there was not even a change of expression in his face; and this might be, thought Jocelin, because he has no face at all. He is the same all round like the top of a clothespeg. He spoke, laughing down at the baldness with its fringe of nondescript hair."I ask your pardon, Father Adam. One forgets you are there so easily!" And then, laughing aloud in joy and love— "I shall call you Father Anonymous!"
Author: William Golding
50. "To hell, allegiance! Vows, to the blackest devil!Conscience and grace, to the profoundest pit!I dare damnation"
Author: William Shakespeare

Today's Quote

I mean a man whose hopes and aims may sometimes lie (as most men's sometimes do, I dare say) above the ordinary level, but to whom the ordinary level will be high enough after all if it should prove to be a way of usefulness and good service leading to no other. All generous spirits are ambitious, I suppose, but the ambition that calmly trusts itself to such a road, instead of spasmodically trying to fly over it, is of the kind I care for."
Author: Charles Dickens
