Being loved by someone deeply gives you courage.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/8770/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/8770/ <![CDATA[What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/6362/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/6362/ <![CDATA[O reason, reason, abstract phantom of the waking state, I had already expelled you from my dreams, now I have reached a point where those dreams are about to become fused with apparent realities: now there is only room here for myself.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/33603/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/33603/ <![CDATA[Activate yourself to duty by remembering your position, who you are, and what you have obliged yourself to be.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/11694/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/11694/ <![CDATA[Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/31424/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/31424/ <![CDATA[You know that when I hate you, it is because I love you to a point of passion that unhinges my soul.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/18634/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/18634/ <![CDATA[Freedom and love go together. Love is not a reaction. If I love you because you love me, that is mere trade, a thing to be bought in the market; it is not love. To love is not to ask anything in return, not even to feel that you are giving something- and it is only such love that can know freedom.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/15772/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/15772/ <![CDATA[Softly and kindly remind yourself, I cannot own anything. It is a valuable thought to keep in mind as you struggle to improve your financial picture, worry about investments, and plan how to acquire more and more. It is a universal principle which you are part of. You must release everything when you truly awaken. Are you letting your life go by in frustration and worry over not having enough? If so, relax and remember that you only get what you have for a short period of time. When you awaken you will see the folly of being attached to anything.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/3427/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/3427/ <![CDATA[A family is a place where minds come in contact with one another.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/14247/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/14247/ <![CDATA[There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison that disintegrates friendships and breaks up pleasant relations. It is a thorn that irritates and hurts; it is a sword that kills.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/11338/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/11338/ <![CDATA[The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help are you freed.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/14717/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/14717/ <![CDATA[Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/18688/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/18688/ <![CDATA[This life of separateness may be compared to a dream, a phantasm, a bubble, a shadow, a drop of dew, a flash of lightning.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/23516/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/23516/ <![CDATA[I believe in getting into hot water. I think it keeps you clean.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/7916/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/7916/ <![CDATA[We read poetry because the poets, like ourselves, have been haunted by the inescapable tyranny of time and death; have suffered the pain of loss, and the more wearing, continuous pain of frustration and failure; and have had moods of unlooked-for release and peace. They have known and watched in themselves and others.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/30697/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/30697/ <![CDATA[Poor little men, poor little cocks! As soon as they're old enough, they swell their plumage to be conquerors. If they only knew that it's enough to be just a little bit wounded and sad in order to obtain everything without fighting for it.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/26048/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/26048/ <![CDATA[There is a grandeur in the uniformity of the mass. When a fashion, a dance, a song, a slogan or a joke sweeps like wildfire from one end of the continent to the other, and a hundred million people roar with laughter, sway their bodies in unison, hum one song or break forth in anger and denunciation, there is the overpowering feeling that in this country we have come nearer the brotherhood of man than ever before.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/25644/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/25644/ <![CDATA[The master minds of all nations, in all ages, have sprung in affluent multitude from the mass of the nation, and from the mass of the nation only -- not from its privileged classes.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/25655/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/25655/ <![CDATA[Take the ideas of the masses (scattered and unsystematic ideas) and concentrate them (through study turn them into concentrated and systematic ideas), then go to the masses and propagate and explain these ideas until the masses embrace them as their own, hold fast to them and translate them into action, and test the correctness of these ideas in such action. Then once again concentrate ideas from the masses and once again go to the masses so that the ideas are persevered in and carried through. And so on, over and over again in an endless spiral, with the ideas becoming more correct, more vital and richer each time. Such is the Marxist theory of knowledge.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/25659/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/25659/ <![CDATA[There are books so alive that you're always afraid that while you weren't reading, the book has gone and changed, has shifted like a river; while you went on living, it went on living too, and like a river moved on and moved away. No one has stepped twice into the same river. But did anyone ever step twice into the same book?]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/4826/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/4826/ <![CDATA[America makes prodigious mistakes, America has colossal faults, but one thing cannot be denied: America is always on the move. She may be going to Hell, of course, but at least she isn't standing still.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/2171/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/2171/ <![CDATA[The aim of every artist is to arrest motion, which is life, by artificial means and hold it fixed so that a hundred years later, when a stranger looks at it, it moves again since it is life. Since man is mortal, the only immortality possible for him is to leave something behind him that is immortal since it will always move. This is the artist's way of scribbling Kilroy was here on the wall of the final and irrevocable oblivion through which he must someday pass.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/3134/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/3134/ <![CDATA[I'm living so far beyond my income that we may almost be said to be living apart.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/20675/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/20675/ <![CDATA[It takes courage to grow up and turn out to be who you really are.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/8690/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/8690/ <![CDATA[The kiss originated when the first male reptile licked the first female reptile, implying in a subtle, complimentary way that she was as succulent as the small reptile he had for dinner the night before.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/22077/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/22077/ <![CDATA[We are all mortal until the first kiss and the second glass of wine.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/38609/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/38609/ <![CDATA[High heels were invented by a woman who had been kissed on the forehead.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/14491/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/14491/ <![CDATA[The desire to create continually is vulgar and betrays jealousy, envy, ambition. If one is something one really does not need to make anything --and one nonetheless does very much. There exists above the productive man a yet higher species.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/9048/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/9048/ <![CDATA[If you wish to travel far and fast, travel light. Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness and fears.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/3449/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/3449/ <![CDATA[To jealousy, nothing is more frightful than laughter.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/21571/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/21571/ <![CDATA[Jealousy is no more than feeling alone against smiling enemies.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/21551/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/21551/ <![CDATA[Here am I: at one stroke incestuous, adulteress, sodomite, and all that in a girl who only lost her maidenhead today! What progress, my friends... with what rapidity I advance along the thorny road of vice!]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/40511/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/40511/ <![CDATA[<b>I do not love you</b> <br/><br/> I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,<br/> or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.<br/> I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,<br/> in secret, between the shadow and the soul.<br/> <br/> I love you as the plant that never blooms<br/> but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;<br/> thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,<br/> risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.<br/> <br/> I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.<br/> I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;<br/> so I love you because I know no other way<br/> <br/> that this: where I does not exist, nor you,<br/> so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,<br/> so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/43063/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/43063/ <![CDATA[<b>Clenched Soul</b><br/> <br/> We have lost even this twilight.<br/> No one saw us this evening hand in hand<br/> while the blue night dropped on the world.<br/> <br/> I have seen from my window<br/> the fiesta of sunset in the distant mountain tops.<br/> Sometimes a piece of sun<br/> burned like a coin in my hand.<br/> <br/> I remembered you with my soul clenched<br/> in that sadness of mine that you know.<br/> <br/> Where were you then?<br/> Who else was there?<br/> Saying what?<br/> Why will the whole of love come on me suddenly<br/> when I am sad and feel you are far away?<br/> <br/> The book fell that always closed at twilight<br/> and my blue sweater rolled like a hurt dog at my feet.<br/> <br/> Always, always you recede through the evenings<br/> toward the twilight erasing statues.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/43065/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/43065/ <![CDATA[The trauma of the Sixties persuaded me that my generation's egalitarianism was a sentimental error. I now see the hierarchical as both beautiful and necessary. Efficiency liberates; egalitarianism tangles, delays, blocks, deadens.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/12722/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/12722/ <![CDATA[My thinking tends to be libertarian. That is, I oppose intrusions of the state into the private realm -- as in abortion, sodomy, prostitution, pornography, drug use, or suicide, all of which I would strongly defend as matters of free choice in a representative democracy.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/2339/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/2339/ <![CDATA[Elizabeth Taylor is pre-feminist woman. This is the source of her continuing greatness and relevance. She wields the sexual power that feminism cannot explain and has tried to destroy. Through stars like Taylor, we sense the world-disordering impact of legendary women like Delilah, Salome, and Helen of Troy. Feminism has tried to dismiss the femme fatale as a misogynist libel, a hoary clich?. But the femme fatale expresses women's ancient and eternal control of the sexual realm. The specter of the femme fatale stalks all men's relations with women.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/374/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/374/ <![CDATA[Popular culture is the new Babylon, into which so much art and intellect now flow. It is our imperial sex theater, supreme temple of the western eye. We live in the age of idols. The pagan past, never dead, flames again in our mystic hierarchies of stardom.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/31192/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/31192/ <![CDATA[The prostitute is not, as feminists claim, the victim of men but rather their conqueror, an outlaw who controls the sexual channel between nature and culture.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/32866/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/32866/ <![CDATA[Capitalism is an art form, an Apollonian fabrication to rival nature. It is hypocritical for feminists and intellectuals to enjoy the pleasures and conveniences of capitalism while sneering at it. Everyone born into capitalism has incurred a debt to it. Give Caesar his due.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/5315/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/5315/ <![CDATA[Woman is the dominant sex. Men have to do all sorts of stuff to prove that they are worthy of woman's attention.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/41915/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/41915/ <![CDATA[Teenage boys, goaded by their surging hormones run in packs like the primal horde. They have only a brief season of exhilarating liberty between control by their mothers and control by their wives.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/903/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/903/ <![CDATA[If civilization had been left in female hands we would still be living in grass huts.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/41914/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/41914/ <![CDATA[How delightful are the pleasures of the imagination! In those delectable moments, the whole world is ours; not a single creature resists us, we devastate the world, we repopulate it with new objects which, in turn, we immolate. The means to every crime is ours, and we employ them all, we multiply the horror a hundredfold.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/20480/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/20480/ <![CDATA[Lust is to the other passions what the nervous fluid is to life; it supports them all, lends strength to them all ambition, cruelty, avarice, revenge, are all founded on lust.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/25086/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/25086/ <![CDATA[Sex is as important as eating or drinking and we ought to allow the one appetite to be satisfied with as little restraint or false modesty as the other.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/36132/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/36132/ <![CDATA[I came, I saw, I conquered.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/40532/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/40532/ <![CDATA[The will to conquer is the first condition of victory.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/40545/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/40545/ <![CDATA[The main motive for nonattachment is a desire to escape from the pain of living, and above all from love, which, sexual or non-sexual, is hard work.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/3302/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/3302/ <![CDATA[When once estrangement has arisen between those who truly love each other, everything seems to widen the breach.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/24931/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/24931/ <![CDATA[Two separate, distinct personalities, not separate at all, but inextricably bound, soul and body and mind, to each other, how did we get so far apart so fast?]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/24935/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/24935/ <![CDATA[I was never one to patiently pick up broken fragments and glue them together again and tell myself that the mended whole was as good as new. What is broken is broken -- and I'd rather remember it as it was at its best than mend it and see the broken places as long as I lived.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/24937/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/24937/ <![CDATA[When a man has once loved a woman, he will do anything for her, except continue to love her.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/24945/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/24945/ <![CDATA[<b>Saddest Poem</b> <br/><br/> I can write the saddest poem of all tonight. <br/> <br/> Write, for instance: "The night is full of stars,<br/> and the stars, blue, shiver in the distance." <br/> <br/> The night wind whirls in the sky and sings.<br/> <br/> I can write the saddest poem of all tonight.<br/> I loved her, and sometimes she loved me too. <br/> <br/> On nights like this, I held her in my arms. I kissed her so many times under the infinite sky. <br/> <br/> She loved me, sometimes I loved her.<br/> How could I not have loved her large, still eyes? <br/> <br/> I can write the saddest poem of all tonight.<br/> To think I don't have her. To feel that I've lost her. <br/> <br/> To hear the immense night, more immense without her.<br/> And the poem falls to the soul as dew to grass. <br/> <br/> What does it matter that my love couldn't keep her.<br/> The night is full of stars and she is not with me. <br/> <br/> That's all. Far away, someone sings. Far away.<br/> My soul is lost without her. <br/> <br/> As if to bring her near, my eyes search for her.<br/> My heart searches for her and she is not with me. <br/> <br/> The same night that whitens the same trees.<br/> We, we who were, we are the same no longer. <br/> <br/> I no longer love her, true, but how much I loved her.<br/> My voice searched the wind to touch her ear. <br/> <br/> Someone else's. She will be someone else's. As she once<br/> belonged to my kisses.<br/> Her voice, her light body. Her infinite eyes. <br/> <br/> I no longer love her, true, but perhaps I love her.<br/> Love is so short and oblivion so long. <br/> <br/> Because on nights like this I held her in my arms,<br/> my soul is lost without her. <br/> <br/> Although this may be the last pain she causes me,<br/> and this may be the last poem I write for her.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/43064/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/43064/ <![CDATA[Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/166/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/166/ <![CDATA[This is not a book. This is libel, slander, defamation of character. This is not a book, in the ordinary sense of the word. No, this is a prolonged insult, a gob of spit in the face of Art, a kick in the pants to God, Man, Destiny, Time, Love, Beauty... what you will. I am going to sing for you, a little off key perhaps, but I will sing.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/4725/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/4725/ <![CDATA[You're an expatriate. You've lost touch with the soil. You get precious. Fake European standards have ruined you. You drink yourself to death. You become obsessed by sex. You spend all your time talking, not working. You are an expatriate, see? You hang around caf?s.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/13210/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/13210/ <![CDATA[That is what we are supposed to do when we are at our best --make it all up --but make it up so truly that later it will happen that way.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/21482/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/21482/ <![CDATA[A love affair with knowledge will never end in heartbreak.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/24678/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/24678/ <![CDATA[Sex without love is an empty experience, but as empty experiences go it's one of the best.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/36143/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/36143/ <![CDATA[Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we learn. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and prejudices and the acceptance of love back in our hearts. Love is the essential reality and our purpose on earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life. Meaning does not lie in things. Meaning lies in us.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/24913/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/24913/
