Favorite Saul Quotes

1. "It is one of the unexpected disasters of the modern age that our new unparalleled access to information has come at the price of our capacity to concentrate on anything much. The deep, immersive thinking which produced many of civilization's most important achievements has come under unprecedented assault. We are almost never far from a machine that guarantees us a mesmerizing and libidinous escape from reality. The feelings and thoughts which we have omitted to experience while looking at our screens are left to find their revenge in involuntary twitches and our ever-decreasing ability to fall asleep when we should."
Author: Alain De Botton

"Moved on?!" Whirling around, I storm at Millie, waving my arms like a maniacal marionette. "I don't care if it was so long ago we could only get with a TARDIS! There is no moving on because it's happening right now!"
Author: Andrea Cremer

5. "An acre of poppies and a forest of spruce boggle no one's mind. Even ten square miles of wheat gladdens the hearts of most . . . No, in the plant world, and especially among the flowering plants, fecundity is not an assault on human values. Plants are not our competitors; they are our prey and our nesting materials. We are no more distressed at their proliferation than an owl is at a population explosion among field mice . . . but in the animal world things are different, and human feelings are different . . . Fecundity is anathema only in the animal. "Acres and acres of rats" has a suitably chilling ring to it that is decidedly lacking if I say, instead, "acres and acres of tulips"."
Author: Annie Dillard
6. "Holivuda patiesiba ir noskana, gara stavoklis, mits, nevis noteikta vieta… Visur, kur sapulcejas laudis, kas reprezente un veido filmu, ir Holivuda. Ta ir sabiedriba, kura neviens nekam netic un tomer visi partiek no pasakam. Kur visi liekulo un tomer cer klut bagati, pardodot savu sirsnibu… Holivudu visi noniecina, bet katrs tai velas piederet. Holivuda neatzist nekadus likumus un tomer verte visas lietas ar visneiecietigako merauklu – naudu. Talantam, skaistumam, izglitibai, gaumei, genialitatei pašai par sevi nav nozimes. Ja šis lietas nevar tudal parverst nauda, tad tas ir škitums, pie ka nav verts kaveties… Nekur pasaule vienuviet nesapulcejas tik daudz ieverojamu makslinieku un sava aroda labako meistaru ka Holivuda, un tomer reti kur makslai tik smagi tiek nodarits pari!"
Author: Anšlavs Eglitis
7. "Your Majesty would have a perfect right to strike off his head," said Peridan. "Such an assault as he made puts him on a level with assassins.""It is very true," said Edmund. "But even a traitor may mend. I have known one that did." And he looked very thoughtful."
Author: C.S. Lewis
8. "All of us cherish our beliefs. They are, to a degree, self-defining. When someone comes along who challenges our belief system as insufficiently well-based – or who, like Socrates, merely asks embarrassing questions that we haven't thought of, or demonstrates that we've swept key underlying assumptions under the rug – it becomes much more than a search for knowledge. It feels like a personal assault."
Author: Carl Sagan
9. "Israel's first king, Saul, looked like he was born for the role. He was tall, handsome, intelligent, and sensitive to God's leading. But he eventually lost most of his attractive qualities, the most important being obedience."

10. "The last ever dolphin message was misinterpreted as a surprisingly sophisticated attempt to do a double-backwards-somersault through a hoop whilst whistling the 'Star Spangled Banner', but in fact the message was this: So long and thanks for all the fish."

Author: Erich Maria Remarque

14. "Tokia šypsena, skleidžiancia neišsenkama pasitikejima, padrasinima, pamatai tik kekius keturis penkis kartus gyvenime. Akimirka ji tarsi aprepia visa išorini pasauli, paskui, negaledama atsispirti jusu žavesiui, grižta ir susitelkia prie jusu. Ir jauciate, kad jus supranta taip, kaip pageidaujate buti suprastas, tiki jumis taip, kaip pats noretumet savimi tiketi, ir mato jus tiksliai toki, koks labiausiai trokštate atrodyti."
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald

Author: François René De Chateaubriand
17. "If these Mount Everests of the financial world are going to labor and bring forth still more pictures with people being blown to bits with bazookas and automatic assault rifles with no gory detail left unexploited, if they are going to encourage anxious, ambitious actors, directors, writers and producers to continue their assault on the English language by reducing the vocabularies of their characters to half a dozen words, with one colorful but overused Anglo-Saxon verb and one unbeautiful Anglo-Saxon noun covering just about every situation, then I would like to suggest that they stop and think about this: making millions is not the whole ball game, fellows. Pride of workmanship is worth more. Artistry is worth more."
Author: Gregory Peck

"Le mai le joli mai en barque sur le RhinDes dames regardaient du haut de la montagneVous êtes si jolies mais la barque s'éloigneQui donc a fait pleurer les saules riverainsOr des vergers fleuris se figeaient en arrièreLes pétales tombés des cerisiers de maiSont les ongles de celle que j'ai tant aiméeLes pétales flétris sont comme ses paupièresSur le chemin du bord du fleuve lentementUn ours un singe un chien menés par des tziganesSuivaient une roulotte traînée par un âneTandis que s'éloignait dans les vignes rhénanesSur un fifre lointain un air de régimentLe mai le joli mai a paré les ruinesDe lierre de vigne vierge et de rosiersLe vent du Rhin secoue sur le bord les osiersEt les roseaux jaseurs et les fleurs nues des vignes"
Author: Guillaume Apollinaire
19. "Over 13 percent of women in college have reported being a victim of stalking during the school year, and one out of every five college women has reported being sexually assaulted.

24. "Most of what is wrong in horizontal church flows from attempts to get green apples interested in Jesus. Green apples are very articulate about that they do and don't want in church. They don't want to hear about money, because that is one of their idols; they don't want to be told about sin, because that assaults pride; no interest in pressure to decide for Jesus, because that threatens their autonomy. Sadly when church becomes what green apples must have or they won't come. It ceases to be what it must be for God to attend. Church needs to be offensive to green apples or it can be helpful to those who are ripe."
Author: James MacDonald

"And he?s my best friend, and I love him… and so does God"
Author: Jeff Erno

Author: Jim Lee
28. "Sport, as I have discovered, fosters international hostility and leads the audience, no doubt from boredom, to assault and do grievous bodily harm while watching it. The fact that audiences at the National Theatre rarely break bottles over one another's heads, and that Opera fans seldom knee one another in the groin during the long intervals at Covent Garden, convinces me that theatre is safer than sport."
Author: John Mortimer
29. "The perennial conviction that those who work hard and play by the rules will be rewarded with a more comfortable present and a stronger future for their children faces assault from just about every direction. That great enemy of democratic capitalism, economic inequality, is real and growing."

30. "These little things make all the great difference. When they are gone you must fall back upon your own innate strength, upon your own capacity for faithfulness. Of course you may be too much of a fool to go wrong--too dull even to know you are being assaulted by the powers of darkness. I take it no fool ever made a bargain for his soul with the devil. The fool is too much of a fool or the devil too much of a devil--I don't know which. Or you may be such a thunderingly exalted creature as to be altogether deaf and blind to anything but heavenly sights and sounds. Then the earth for you is only a standing place--and whether to be like this is your loss or your gain I won't pretend to say. But most of us are neither one or the other."
Author: Joseph Conrad

"Hmm, about time you figured that one out," Fidelia steped back as he brushed against her long skirt."
Author: Kerrelyn Sparks
33. "At one point I would read nothing that was not by the great American Jews - Saul Bellow, Philip Roth - which had a disastrous effect of making me think I needed to write the next great Jewish American novel. As a ginger-haired child in the West of Ireland, that didn't work out very well, as you can imagine."
Author: Kevin Barry
34. "How? By squishing me to death?" I wheezed, and then my eyes widened as Al's mouth covered mine, savage and demanding. The stink of demons assaulted me, hard and fast. A thread of ley line spilled into me from him, diving to my groin and flashing into heat. It could have been ecstasy, but I was too angry. His body was heavy on mine, and his leg forced its way between my knees."
Author: Kim Harrison

Leo tried to shove him away, but Passalos did a backward somersault and landed out of reach. Leo's pants promptly fell around his knees.He stared at Passalos, who was now grinning and holding a small zigzaggy strip of metal. Somehow, the dwarf had stolen the zipper right off Leo's pants."Give—stupid—zipper!" Leo stuttered, trying to shake his fist and hoist up his pants at the same time."Eh, not shiny enough." Passalos tossed it away."
Author: Rick Riordan

...nos veíamos mejor en la oscuridad que con luz, a mí siempre me ha gustado la caída del día, me parece el único momento en que puede pasar algo importante, la luz del crepúsculo lo embellece todo, las calles, las plazas, la gente parece aterciopelada como las flores, los pensamientos morados y amarillos, incluso a mí mismo me percibo más joven y de mejor ver, me agrada observarme en el espejo cuando oscurece, palparme la cara, entonces la encuentro lisa, sin arrugas en las comisuras de los labios ni en la frente; el crepúsculo aporta belleza a mi vida cotidiana."
