My favourite film is 'Le Diner de Cons,' a French movie. ~ Stanislas Wawrinka
Diner De Cons quotes by Stanislas Wawrinka
The twenty-four-hour diner, the station waiting room and the motel are sanctuaries for those who have, for noble reasons, failed to find a home in the ordinary world, sanctuaries for those whom Baudelaire might have dignified with the honorific 'poets'. ~ Alain De Botton
Diner De Cons quotes by Alain De Botton
At the top of the slope on the perimeter of the site, overlooking six lanes of motorway, is a diner frequented by lorry drivers who have either just unloaded or or are waiting to pick up their cargo. Anyone nursing a disappointment with domestic life would find relief in this tiled, brightly lit cafeteria with its smells of fries and petrol, for it has the reassuring feel of a place where everyone is just passing through
and which therefore has none of the close-knit or convivial atmosphere which could cast a humiliating light on one's own alienation. It suggests itself as an ideal location for Christmas lunch for those let down by their families. ~ Alain De Botton
Diner De Cons quotes by Alain De Botton
My studies in Speculative philosophy, metaphysics, and science are all summed up in the image of a mouse called man running in and out of every hole in the Cosmos hunting for the Absolute Cheese. ~ Benjamin De Casseres
Diner De Cons quotes by Benjamin De Casseres
Pen realized it: Sometimes there is nothing to do but surrender yourself to wonder ... You must stop measuring - over and over - the line between loving and being in love. You must offer yourself, whole, to the cobalt starfish (and the orange one and the pale pink one and the biscuit-colored one with the raised, chocolate-brown art deco design) and to the clear, clear water and to the sweep of shining sky and to the silver scattershot of leaping fish (an entire school skipping across the ocean like a stone.) ~ Marisa De Los Santos
Diner De Cons quotes by Marisa De Los Santos
There is no chain of philosophical reasoning or method of philosophical enquiry through which we can arrive at the truths of faith as conclusions. But once by faith we have acknowledged those truths we are able to understand why there is good reason to acknowledge them. This, as he was to argue a little later, is because of the effects of sin on the human mind. It is "because human minds are obscured by familiarity with darkness, which covers them in a night of sins and bad habits, and are unable to perceive with the clarity and purity proper to reason" that authority has been provided to bring "the faltering eye into the light of truth" (De moribus ecclesiae catholicae 31.2.31). ~ Alasdair MacIntyre
Diner De Cons quotes by Alasdair MacIntyre
Linguistics will have to recognise laws operating universally in language, and in a strictly rational manner, separating general phenomena from those restricted to one branch of languages or another. ~ Ferdinand De Saussure
Diner De Cons quotes by Ferdinand De Saussure
It didn't help that she was painfully shy and kept to herself, because then they just thought she was stuck-up, which she wasn't. She was just quiet. ~ Melissa De La Cruz
Diner De Cons quotes by Melissa De La Cruz
Lee Kuan Yew ruled Singapore from 1959 until 1990, making him, we believe, the longest serving prime minister anywhere. His party, the People's Action Party (PAP), dominated elections and that dominance was reinforced by the allocation of public housing, upon which most people in Singapore rely. Neighborhoods that fail to deliver PAP votes come election time found the provision and maintenance of housing cut off.18 In Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe went one step further. In an operation called Murambatsvina (Operation Drive Out the Rubbish), he used bulldozers to demolish the houses and markets in neighborhoods that failed to support him in the 2005 election. ~ Bruce Bueno De Mesquita
Diner De Cons quotes by Bruce Bueno De Mesquita
I was the hero, Roberto De Niro, William Shakespearo! Walking on the beaches, looking at the peaches. ~ Charlie Higson
Diner De Cons quotes by Charlie Higson
If you don't abdicate or misuse your power, pressure takes you into realization. ~ John De Ruiter
Diner De Cons quotes by John De Ruiter
Whatever your orientation is, it is working on everything around you. ~ John De Ruiter
Diner De Cons quotes by John De Ruiter
What clever man has ever needed to commit a crime? Crime is the last resort of political half-wits. ~ Charles Maurice De Talleyrand
Diner De Cons quotes by Charles Maurice De Talleyrand
Either the human being must suffer and struggle as the price of a more searching vision, or his gaze must be shallow and without intellectual revelation. ~ Thomas De Quincey
Diner De Cons quotes by Thomas De Quincey
I was to look around me as though I had never been in this place before. And slowly, my travels began to bear fruit. ~ Alain De Botton
Diner De Cons quotes by Alain De Botton
The spirit cannot endure the body when overfed, but, if underfed, the body cannot endure the spirit. ~ Saint Francis De Sales
Diner De Cons quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
Surfing is so unique and it's something that no matter what level you are, you can go and have fun. You can pick and choose the waves that you want to surf, so if it is too big and scary, you can wait until it changes and gets more to your level. Every time you go out it's always different and unique. It's almost like a place you can just de-stress. ~ Bethany Hamilton
Diner De Cons quotes by Bethany Hamilton
Creole women take after Europe in their intelligence, after the Tropics in the illogical violence of their passions, and after the Indies in the apathetic indolence with which they commit or suffer good and evil. ~ Honore De Balzac
Diner De Cons quotes by Honore De Balzac
The overwhelming noise we live with has made a fundamental pleasure like sex somehow less exciting, less satisfying, than it was for our libidinous forefathers and mothers. It seems to me that for sex and other pleasures to be enjoyed to the fullest, a certain contemplative quality to life must be present. If you doubt this imagine yourself for a moment having sex. Now imagine you wished to increase the pleasure you were feeling, feel it more intensely. What might you do? Well one of the things you'd probably do is close your eyes. What this does of course is shut out other stimuli. The visual quiet increases your sensual enjoyment and you concentrate more fully on the pleasure. The same is true for the removal of auditory noise as well. Well my feeling is that the average person has a much harder time doing this today than they would have decades ago. Today you close your eyes and shut off Television but the noise persists. It's part of our fabric now, our biology, and all other pleasures including sex are diminished as a result. We don't notice this derogation by the way and sex still feels great, don't get me wrong, but I think the difference is there nonetheless. Like the difference between seeing breasts when you're thirty as opposed to when you were thirteen. ~ Sergio De La Pava
Diner De Cons quotes by Sergio De La Pava
No truth is proved, no truth achieved, by argument, and the ready-made truths men offer you are mere conveniences or drugs to make you sleep. ~ Antoine De Saint Exupery
Diner De Cons quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
I never met a man who thought his thinking was faulty. ~ Michel De Montaigne
Diner De Cons quotes by Michel De Montaigne
What a vast Traffick is drove, what a variety of Labour is performed in the World to the Maintenance of Thousands of Families that altogether depend on two silly if not odious Customs; the taking of Snuff and smoking of Tobacco; both which it is certain do infinitely more hurt than good to those that are addicted to them! ~ Bernard De Mandeville
Diner De Cons quotes by Bernard De Mandeville
We often brag that we are never bored with ourselves, and are so vain as never to think ourselves bad company. ~ Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Diner De Cons quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
I think it's important to have had at least a few years of obscurity, where people treat you like everybody else. ~ Robert De Niro
Diner De Cons quotes by Robert De Niro
The Montreux Palace Hotel was built in an age when it was thought that things would last. It is on the very shores of Switzerland's Lake Geneva, its balconies and iron railings look across the water, its yellow-ocher awnings are a touch of color in the winter light. It is like a great sanitarium or museum. There are Bechstein pianos in the public rooms, a private silver collection, a Salon de Bridge. This is the hotel where the novelist Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov and his wife, Véra, live. They have been here for 14 years. One imagines his large and brooding reflection in the polished glass of bookcases near the reception desk where there are bound volumes of the Illustrated London News from the year 1849 to 1887, copies of Great Expectations, The Chess Games of Greco and a book called Things Past, by the Duchess of Sermoneta.

Though old, the hotel is marvelously kept up and, in certain portions, even modernized. Its business now is mainly conventions and, in the summer, tours, but there is still a thin migration of old clients, ancient couples and remnants of families who ask for certain rooms when they come and sometimes certain maids. For Nabokov, a man who rode as a child on the great European express trains, who had private tutors, estates, and inherited millions which disappeared in the Russian revolution, this is a return to his sources. It is a place to retire to, with Visconti's Mahler and the long-dead figures of La Belle Epoque, Edward VII, d'Annunzi ~ James Salter
Diner De Cons quotes by James Salter
The wicked are always surprised to find ability in the good. ~ Luc De Clapiers
Diner De Cons quotes by Luc De Clapiers
Art includes everything that stimulates the desire to live. ~ Remy De Gourmont
Diner De Cons quotes by Remy De Gourmont
perhaps love is only gratitude for pleasure. ~ Honore De Balzac
Diner De Cons quotes by Honore De Balzac
Scientific progress makes moral progress a necessity; for if man's power is increased, the checks that restrain him from abusing it must be strengthened. ~ Madame De Stael
Diner De Cons quotes by Madame De Stael
Hannah. He looks at me, the same way he looked at me last night in the diner, with longing and sadness, and it's like everything I'm feeling I can see in his eyes. I want to kiss him so bad it hurts, but I know I can't. So instead, I tear my gaze from his and look down at the ground. ~ Lauren Barnholdt
Diner De Cons quotes by Lauren Barnholdt
Must not trouble the gods with our affairs; they take no heed of our angers and disputes.Plutarch.] ~ Michel De Montaigne
Diner De Cons quotes by Michel De Montaigne
Flattery is false money, which would not be current were it not for our vanity. ~ Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Diner De Cons quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Vhat ozzer abilities do you haf?" ter Borcht snapped, which his assistant waited, pen in hand.
Gazzy thought. "I have X-ray vision," he said. He peered at ter Borcht's chest, then blinked and looked alarmed.
Ter Borcht was startled for a second, but then he frowned. "Don't write dat down," he told his assistant in irritation. The assistant froze in midsentence.
"You. Do you haf any qualities dat distinguish you in any way?"
Nudge chewed on a fingernail. "You mean, like, besides the WINGS?" She shook her shoulders gently, and her beautiful fawn-colored wings unfolded a bit.
His face flushed, and I felt like cheering. "Yes," he said stiffly. "Besides de vings."
"Hmm. Besides de vings." Nudge tapped one finger against her chin. "Um..." Her face brightened. "I once ate nine Snickers bars in one sitting. Without barfing. That was a record!"
"Hardly a special talent," ter Borcht said witheringly.
Nudge was offended. "Yeah? Let's see YOU do it."
"I vill now eat nine Snickers bars," Gazzy said in a perfect, creepy imitation of ter Borcht's voice, "visout bahfing."
Iggy rubbed his forehead with one hand. "Well, I have a highly developed sense of irony."
Ter Borcht tsked. "You are a liability to your group. I assume you alvays hold on to someone's shirt, yes? Following dem closely?"
"Only when I'm trying to steal their dessert"
...Fang pretended to think, gazing up at the ceiling. "Besides my fashion sense? I pl ~ James Patterson
Diner De Cons quotes by James Patterson
Jealousy is a serious disease, that reflects who people are when others are achieving great things. It has nothing to say about the person they are hating but has everything to say about who they are. People who injects negativity and expect others to fail so that they can celebrate. ~ De Philosopher DJ Kyoss
Diner De Cons quotes by De Philosopher DJ Kyoss
I passionately love liberty, legality, respect for rights, but not democracy. That is what I find in the depth of my soul. ~ Alexis De Tocqueville
Diner De Cons quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
We live in dramatic times. Violent confrontations are erupting in all parts of the world. Instinctively we feel that it does not have to be so. That confrontation could give way to cooperation. ~ Dominique De Menil
Diner De Cons quotes by Dominique De Menil
It is similar to one brother asking another, "Why did you grow up to be a drunk?" The answer is "Because Dad was a drunk." The second brother then asks, "Why didn't you grow up to be a drunk?" The answer is "Because Dad was a drunk." Some more complete answers are found in Robert Ressler's classic book Whoever Fights Monsters. He speaks of the tremendous importance of the early puberty period for boys. Before then, the anger of these boys might have been submerged and without focus, perhaps turned inward in the form of depression, perhaps (as in most cases) just denied, to emerge later. But during puberty, this anger collides with another powerful force, one of the most powerful in nature: sexuality. Even at this point, say Ressler and others, these potential hosts of monsters can be turned around through the (often unintentional) intervention of people who show kindness, support, or even just interest. I can say from experience that it doesn't take much. ~ Gavin De Becker
Diner De Cons quotes by Gavin De Becker
Love is the most powerful and still most unknown energy in the world. ~ Pierre Teilhard De Chardin
Diner De Cons quotes by Pierre Teilhard De Chardin
We seldom praise anyone in good earnest, except such as admire us. ~ Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Diner De Cons quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
When one wants to be famous, one has to dive gracefully into rivers of the blood of cannon-blasted bodies. ~ Comte De Lautreamont
Diner De Cons quotes by Comte De Lautreamont
The only thing certain is nothing is certain. ~ Michel De Montaigne
Diner De Cons quotes by Michel De Montaigne
You can easily have more time available in your life to do what is important to you ~ Eddie De Jong
Diner De Cons quotes by Eddie De Jong
Beauty don't ask for attention. ~ Sonja De Lange
