Quotations Quotes

I googled the quote 'Power means not having to respond.'  Nothing happened.
Perhaps one did not want
to be loved so much as to
be understood.

"Maybe our favourite
quotations say more
About us than about 
the stories and people
We're quoting."

- John Green
 
The best fantasy is written in the language of dreams
It is alive as dreams are alive, more real than real...for a moment at least...that long magic moment before we wake.
Fantasy is silver and scarlet, indigo and azure, obsidian veined with gold and lapis lazuli.
Reality is plywood and plastic, done up in mud brown and olive drab.
Fantasy tastes of habaneros and honey, cinnamon and cloves, rare red meat and wines as sweet as summer.
Reality is beans and tofu, and ashes at the end.
Reality is the strip malls of Burbank, the smokestacks of Cleveland, a parking garage in Newark.
Fantasy is the towers of Minas Tirith, the ancient stones of Gormenghast, the halls of Camelot.
Fantasy flies on the wings of Icarus, reality on Southwest Airlines.
Why do our dreams become so much smaller when they finally come true?
We read fantasy to find the colors again, I think. To taste strong spices and hear the songs the sirens sang.
There is something old and true in fantasy that speaks to something deep within us,
to the child who dreamt that one day he would hunt the forests of the night, feast beneath the hollow hills,
and find a love to last forever somewhere south of Oz and north of Shangri-La.
They can keep their heaven. When I die, I'd sooner go to middle Earth.
― George R.R. Martin
"At the conclusion of all our studies we must try once again to experience the human soul as soul, and not just as a buzz of bioelectricity; the human will as will, and not just a surge of hormones; the human heart not as a fibrous, sticky pump, but as the metaphoric organ of understanding. We need not believe in them as metaphysical entities — they are as real as the flesh and blood they are made of. But we must believe in them as entities; not as analyzed fragments, but as wholes made real by our contemplation of them, by the words we use to talk of them, by the way we have transmuted them to speech. We must stand in awe of them as unassailable, even though they are dissected before our eyes." - Melvin Konner
one should always be drunk
that's all that matters...  but with what?
with wine, with poetry,
or with virtue  ...as you choose.

"For what it's worth: it's never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you're proud of, and if you find that you're not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again."
— Eric Roth
"What's terrible is that there's nothing terrible, that the very essence of life is petty, uninteresting, and degradingly trite."
— Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev
"Love is the final end of the world's history, the Amen of the universe." — Novalis
