#1. The first day of the West Line, April 5th, falls upon a Friday, - the least auspicious day of the week to begin any enterprise, such as sailing from Spithead, for example. To stand at the Post Mark'd West, and turn to face West, can be a trial for those sentimentally inclin'd, as well as for ev'ryone nearby. It is possible to feel the combin'd force, in perfect Enfilade, of ev'ry future second unelaps'd, ev'ry Chain yet to be stretch'd, every unknown Event to be undergone, - the unmodified Terror of keeping one's Latitude. - Author: Thomas Pynchon
Deetjens Post quotes by Thomas Pynchon

Deetjens Post quotes by Ezra Koenig
#3. I'm spending way too much time test running my Vine videos. I'll go into a room and close the door and be in there for an hour workshopping a Vine video that I never even post. So that's probably a huge time suck. - Author: Gillian Jacobs
Deetjens Post quotes by Gillian Jacobs

#5. There was another epidemic that was not talked about much, a silent scourge - the explosion of mental illness: major depression, psychosis, schizophrenia, manic-depression, personality disorders, grief response, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety disorders, etc. - on a scale none of us had ever witnessed. - Author: Chinua Achebe
Deetjens Post quotes by Chinua Achebe
#6. The Collectorship of Madna is the seventh post that he has held in eight years. He is quite philosophic about the law that governs the transfer of civil servants; he sees it as a sort of corollary to the law of karma, namely, that the whole of life passes through innumerable and fundamentally mystifying changes, and these changes are sought to be determined by our conduct, our deeds (otherwise, we would quite simply lose our marbles); only thus can we even pretend to satisfactorily explain the mystery of suffering, which is a subject that has troubled thoughtful souls all over the world since time immemorial. It is also a hypothesis that justifies the manifest social inequalities of the Hindu community. - Author: Upamanyu Chatterjee
Deetjens Post quotes by Upamanyu Chatterjee
#7. Most of the POWs were taken before they could cut loose form their harness. Among then was Pvt. Paul Bouchereau, a Louisiana Cajun. He was being taken to a German command post where other POWs were being harshly interrogated. The German captain, speaking English, was demanding to know how many Americans had jumped into the area.
"Millions and millions of us." One GI replied.
The angry captain asked Bouchereau the same question. With his strong Cajun accent, Bouchereau answered, "Jus' me! - Author: Stephen Ambrose
Deetjens Post quotes by Stephen Ambrose
#8. I'll read my books and I'll drink coffee and I'll listen to music, and I'll bolt the door.
( A Boy in France : Saturday Evening Post CCXVII, March 31, 1945) - Author: J.D. Salinger
Deetjens Post quotes by J.D. Salinger
#9. I think the main thing you have to remember when going into the post-season is to stay relaxed. All of the energy and excitement can be overwhelming but the thing I'll try to relay to the younger players is just stay calm and focused. - Author: Holly Johnson
Deetjens Post quotes by Holly Johnson
#10. We took a right at the fork, heading farther north. The charred houses continued. To the right, a large sign nailed to an old telephone post shouted DANGER in huge red letters. Underneath in crisp black letters was written:
IM-1: Infectious Magic Area
Do Not Enter
Authorized Personnel Only
A second smaller sign under the first one, written on a piece of plastic with permanent marker, read:
Keep out, stupid.
"We aren't going to keep out, are we?" Ascanio asked.
"No."
"Awesome. - Author: Ilona Andrews
Deetjens Post quotes by Ilona Andrews
#11. I wrote a blog post about how the book is different from the blog and why I chose to go the self-publishing route. I wrote guests posts for blogs like Techcrunch, which helped immensely and for which I'm very grateful. I used my social networks: Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, Google+, Quora, and Pinterest. - Author: James Altucher
Deetjens Post quotes by James Altucher

Deetjens Post quotes by David Chiles
#13. Laika says I'm not middle of the road. One time she said that I was the road. She said I was her post-apocalyptic highway. - Author: Stefan Mohamed
Deetjens Post quotes by Stefan Mohamed
#14. The proposition that primitive dream imagery might reproduce, albeit imperfectly, the experience of one's ancestors, including their terrors, was rather too existentially charged for post-modern sensitivities, for which the meaningless hypothesis of memory de-junking was much more appealing. Even worse, the notion that one's own ideation, one's own monsters, or indeed oneself as a monster, might be transmitted forward to future generations threatened deeply assumptions about the privacy of the mind and an individual's discretionary power of inviolable concealment over unedifying thoughts. - Author: Robert Edeson
Deetjens Post quotes by Robert Edeson
#15. When I was 15, I sat in despair one day in a creaky old bus that was winding its way through central Mexico (that's another story), trying to decide if I truly believed in God. Not necessarily God with a big white beard looking down from a Biblical heaven, but some kind of sacred spirit above, beneath, and within all things. I'd always had a deep, instinctive faith (even as a small child) in a sacred dimension to life, a Mystery I didn't need to fully define in order to know it, feel it, experience it. But recent grueling events had shaken my faith and closed that connection.

Now, I realize that sitting and railing at God is practically a cliche of teenage angst; that doesn't make the experience any less urgent at age 15, and I was in a dark place. "Okay," I said, throwing the gauntlet down to whatever out there might be listening, "if there is something more than this, then prove it. Just prove it. Or I quit." The bus turned a corner on the narrow, dusty road, and a gasp went up from the people around me. Above us, a rainbow arched through a bright blue, cloudless, rainless desert sky.

Rainbows have been special to me ever since. I know the scientific explanation, of course, water and air and angles of sunlight and all that. But to me, they are always a message. They say: "The universe is a Mystery and you're part of it." And sometimes that's all I need to hear; that's all the answer I need, no matter what the prayer. - Author: Terri Windling
Deetjens Post quotes by Terri Windling
#16. It is a real issue, a measurement of our society, when we say it's fine to destroy unborn life who has a heartbeat at 16 days post-conception. - Author: Tom Coburn
Deetjens Post quotes by Tom Coburn
#17. Science fiction is the search for a definition of mankind and his status in the universe which will stand in our advanced but confused state of knowledge (science), and is characteristically cast in the Gothic or post Gothic mode. - Author: Brian Aldiss
Deetjens Post quotes by Brian Aldiss
#18. Of course the 19th century remained in blissful ignorance of post-modern irony, and the dime novels were made without end. - Author: Clive Sinclair
Deetjens Post quotes by Clive Sinclair
#19. The dearth of business activity on the traditional day of rest makes Sunday an ideal time to declare insolvency. Bankruptcy petitions are time-stamped to the minute, instantly dividing a failed company's dealings into pre-bankruptcy transactions and post-bankruptcy transactions. - Author: Brendan I. Koerner
Deetjens Post quotes by Brendan I. Koerner
#20. When will you ask for your post back?" he whispered in her ear. "I miss the smell of
industrial-strength solvents."
She laughed softly. "Soon. And when will you have papers read at the mathematical society
again? I rather like having my husband called a genius for reasons that are not clear to me."
My husband. The words rolled off her tongue, easy and beautiful. He kissed her fervently.
"Soon. My brilliance quite overflowed on the way home. I have four notebooks to show for
it."
"Good. We don't want people to think I love you for your looks alone."
"In that case we should also put you in some rather revealing gowns once in a while, so that
people don't think I married you for your accomplishments alone. - Author: Sherry Thomas
Deetjens Post quotes by Sherry Thomas
#21. Just think about this: haven't we been going just to and fro? The whole world rather. Years back, it was good to take vitamin supplements and today they are considered hampering body's natural immune. Sometime back, people were desperate to land up in high paying jobs, today there is a big entrepreneurship fad. Back in years, it was a pride to be settled in the city, now people are giving up all responsibilities to settle at a peaceful country side.
What are we all really doing? We are moving from pillar to post, forward and backward on theories. We are all as confused as the next person. And unfortunately, we are all going to leave this world with barely being able to decipher much. - Author: Jasleen Kaur Gumber
Deetjens Post quotes by Jasleen Kaur Gumber
#22. What's there to be scared about? A post-apocalyptic city with no government or security, surrounded by a desert and swarming with Cranks. I mean, come on. Don't be a sissy. - Author: James Dashner
Deetjens Post quotes by James Dashner
#23. I could use you, training the Castle guards," offered the Reeve, "but I have to warn you that the last man to hold the post of captain quit."
The guard's eyebrows rose. "I wouldn't have thought that Castle guards would be that difficult."
"They're not," returned Kerim. "My lady mother, however is. - Author: Patricia Briggs
Deetjens Post quotes by Patricia Briggs
#24. Getting a new version of the answer every day, Artyom was unable to compel himself to believe what was true, because the next day another, no less precise and comprehensive one, might arise. Whom should he believe? And in what? ... Any faith served man only as a crutch supporting him. ... He understood why man needs this support. Without it, life would have become empty, like an abandoned tunnel. - Author: Dmitry Glukhovsky
Deetjens Post quotes by Dmitry Glukhovsky
#25. He's an immortal from Brazil," Chris said. "His mortal lover, whom he thought was completely trustworthy, videotaped them having sex - "
"Awesome!" Sheldon interjected with a grin.
Everyone looked at him.
"What? I like porn."
Still they stared.
He frowned. "I have to give up booze, parties, and porn? Can't a Second have any vices?"
Chris sighed. "Anyway. She videotaped them having sex and intended to auction it off to news outlets once it had been authenticated by an expert who would swear the glowing eyes, fangs, and . . . ah . . . unusual speed and other things demonstrated were not special effects produced by a post-production house."
"Maybe they were," Sheldon suggested somberly. "Maybe she was out to discredit him. I think we should all watch it and - "
"The tape has been destroyed," Seth cut in.
"Damn." Sheldon slumped down in his seat.
Chris met Richart's gaze. "Anytime you want me to get rid of him . . ."
Richart shook his head. "He amuses me. - Author: Dianne Duvall
Deetjens Post quotes by Dianne Duvall
#26. If you have high IQ, you're really good at finding post-hoc arguments to support your feelings of truthiness. - Author: Jonathan Haidt
Deetjens Post quotes by Jonathan Haidt
#27. I'm very interested in clans and the way people group together, and there's a lot of group shots. There's a lot of people in positions that people feel like they're in attack mode, kind of pointed at each other in the frame. I'm not a big fan of shooting something that looks like it could belong in any movie, I'm not a fan of okay, "wide shot, wide shot, medium shot, close-up, close-up, we'll figure it out in post." I hate that. - Author: Justin Simien
Deetjens Post quotes by Justin Simien
#28. Everything is post these days, as if we're all just a footnote to something earlier that was real enough to have a name of its own. - Author: Margaret Atwood
Deetjens Post quotes by Margaret Atwood
#29. Of course I'd like children. But I have to get over my impression that being pregnant is like popping corn. You expand and expand until you pop. - Author: Markie Post
Deetjens Post quotes by Markie Post
#30. When I began writing, I did not realize that the Holocaust would become a critical part of the story. During and after WWII, neither the survivors of the Holocaust nor the combat solders were diagnosed or treated for what is now known as PTSD (Post-traumatic Stress Disorder). Many of the characters in this book were victims of this now well-known disorder. - Author: Helene Uhlfelder
Deetjens Post quotes by Helene Uhlfelder
#31. Even post-WWII, nobody talked about the Holocaust. It wasn't until the '50s that people started talking about it. - Author: Eli Roth
Deetjens Post quotes by Eli Roth
#32. The six squares of our love didn't add up to a cube. Still, I took the oddly-shaped box down to the post office and tried to mail it into the future, when I'd be more prepared to open it. - Author: Jarod Kintz
Deetjens Post quotes by Jarod Kintz
#33. In the early 1950s, Fanny Rosenow, a breast cancer survivor and cancer advocate, called the New York Times to post an advertisement for a support group for women with breast cancer. Rosenow was put through, puzzlingly, to the society editor of the newspaper. When she asked about placing her announcement, a long pause followed. "I'm sorry, Ms. Rosenow, but the Times cannot publish the word breast or the word cancer in its pages. "Perhaps," the editor continued, "you could say there will be a meeting about diseases of the chest wall." Rosenow - Author: Siddhartha Mukherjee
Deetjens Post quotes by Siddhartha Mukherjee
#34. War and peace. There are blurred lines in the realities of both. A separation anxiety as the paradigm shifts from the air that a sniper wears on his face (real life, entertainment for the masses or the propaganda machine you decide), to the blueprint of an assassination in a driveway (Chris Hani lying in a pool of his own blood). You know that we cannot eat stones but we can burn, butcher, necklace, murder, forcibly remove and displace entire families, races of different faiths in the name of apartheid. Nelson Mandela, Steve Biko and Chris Hani instruments of change, war, tolerance or peace. The Romantics got it right before anyone else did. Truth is beauty. The truth is South Africa is not cool anymore. - Author: Abigail George
Deetjens Post quotes by Abigail George
#35. Theology is the post hoc rationalization of what you want to believe. - Author: Jerry A. Coyne
Deetjens Post quotes by Jerry A. Coyne
#36. You seem to forget how I'm your employer and so acting like a mouthy bitch isn't a smart way to keep your job." "Your threat would be more convincing if you weren't stuck with temps who left post-it notes declaring you're the devil and she hopes you get sucked back into hell." Hayes - Author: Bijou Hunter
Deetjens Post quotes by Bijou Hunter
#37. To be a critical reader means for me: (1) to affirm the enduring power of the Bible in my culture and in my own life and yet (2) to remain open enough to dare to ask any question and to risk any critical judgement. Nothing less than both of these points, together, can suffice for me. I was a reader of the Bible before I was a critic of it, but I found becoming a critic to be liberating and satisfying, and therefore I judge criticism to be a high calling of inestimable value. Yet, I recognize the prior claim of the text and the preeminence of reading over criticism; accordingly, I see and occasionally am apprehended by moments in which the text wields its indubitable power. The critic's ego says this could be a taste of the cherished post-critical naivete; the reader's proper humility before the text says that a reader should not judge such things. - Author: Robert M. Fowler
Deetjens Post quotes by Robert M. Fowler
#38. 'Collaborator' is a hostage tragicomedy, but it's also, kind of, everything I know about post-war America. Well, not everything, but it does reference a lot of the post-war period. - Author: Martin Donovan
Deetjens Post quotes by Martin Donovan
#39. He could quite quickly become detached from the nuances of common human emotion. Particularly if he was engaged in some aspect of a scientific problem or research. His work excluded any consideration for the feelings of those around him. And he rarely excused himself or justified his behavior. It was as if he was compelled to focus all his energy on one subject and was unaware that others did not follow his obsession. - Author: Theresa Breslin
Deetjens Post quotes by Theresa Breslin
#40. A bicycle?" Amos leaned on the breakfast bar. "Sure. They don't need fuel, they don't get sick. Most of the repairs, you can handle on your own. You're looking for post-apocalyptic transportation, bikes are the way to go. - Author: James S.A. Corey
Deetjens Post quotes by James S.A. Corey
#41. I can forgive even that wrong of wrongs,
Those undreamt accidents that have made me
Seeing that Fame has perished this long while,
Being but a part of ancient ceremony
Notorious, till all my priceless things
Are but a post the passing dogs defile. - Author: William Butler Yeats
Deetjens Post quotes by William Butler Yeats
#42. A picture is a reflection of the dreams, vision, missions and goals hidden within. Look beyond what you see. - Author: Proud Chocolate
Deetjens Post quotes by Proud Chocolate
#43. I remember my mom had a big collection of copies of Saturday Evening Post magazines, and that was really my introduction to those great illustrators. - Author: Thomas Kincade
Deetjens Post quotes by Thomas Kincade
#44. I have met many, many severely distressed people whose daily lives are filled with the agony of both remembered and unremembered trauma, who try so hard to heal and yet who are constantly being pushed down both by their symptoms and the oppressive circumstances of post traumatic life around them. - Author: Carolyn Spring
Deetjens Post quotes by Carolyn Spring
#45. Human beings can be redeemed. Empires cannot. Our refusal to face the truth about empire, our refusal to defy the multitudinous crimes and atrocities of empire, has brought about the nightmare Malcolm predicted. And as the Digital Age and our post-literate society implant a terrifying historical amnesia, these crimes are erased as swiftly as they are committed. - Author: Chris Hedges
Deetjens Post quotes by Chris Hedges
#46. Indeed, a symptom of post-Holocaust trauma is that normative assumptions about the human species are questioned more than ever. Can human nature still be trusted? The breach of civilized values was too great - and in a nation that had produced so many significant philosophers, scientists, scholars, and artists. The intellectual shock - a secondary trauma, as it were - is not only that it happened but also that it happened with only scattered pockets of resistance and even a degree of cooperation among the cultured classes. - Author: Jeffrey C. Alexander
Deetjens Post quotes by Jeffrey C. Alexander
#47. It was more likely that Comet would be governor of Pennsylvania. Shawn hoped his cat wouldn't forget him once he got into a position of power like that. - Author: Nina Post
