By men's words we know them. ~ Marie De France
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Marie De France
Iannis: [writing to Corelli] Antonio, I do not know if this letter will reach you, or even if you are alive. Perhaps someone else sent your record, and that is why we found no note. I would like to say that Pelagia is happy, but she is full of tears she will not let fall, and of a grief no doctor can mend. She blames herself for the pain we have suffered, and perhaps the same is true for you. You know I am not a religious man, but I believe this: if there is a wound, we must try to heal it. If there is someone whose pain we can cure, we must search till we find them. If the gods have chosen that we should survive, it will be for a reason. ~ Louis De Bernieres
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Louis De Bernieres
What do you think of boybands?"
I avoided eye contact, put my hands in my pockets, and shrugged.
"Not my thing, really." What was he getting at?
He chortled, and continued. "They are all the same. They've all got a lead singer whose head is stuck up his own arse, then a hard one who gets into trouble, an ugly one who wants to be taken seriously, and always, without exception, there's a gay one. ~ Eddie De Oliveira
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Eddie De Oliveira
There are countries in which the communal provision of housing, transport, education and health care is so inferior that inhabitants will naturally seek to escape involvement with the masses by barricading themselves behind solid walls. The desire for high status is never stronger than in situations where 'ordinary' life fails to answer a median need for dignity or comfort.

Then there are communities - far fewer in number and typically imbued with a strong (often Protestant) Christian heritage - whose public realms exude respect in their principles and architecture, and whose citizens are therefore under less compulsion to retreat into a private domain. Indeed, we may find that some of our ambitions for personal glory fade when the public spaces and facilities to which we enjoy access are themselves glorious to behold; in such a context, ordinary citizenship may come to seem an adequate goal. In Switzerland's largest city, for instance, the need to own a car in order to avoid sharing a bus or train with strangers loses some of the urgency it has in Los Angeles or London, thanks to Zurich's superlative train network, which is clean, safe, warm and edifying in its punctuality and technical prowess. There is little reason to travel in an automotive cocoon when, for a fare of only a few francs, an efficient, stately tramway will provide transport from point A to point B at a level of comfort an emperor might have envied.

One insight to be drawn from Christia ~ Alain De Botton
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Alain De Botton
We are all patchwork, and so shapeless and diverse in composition that each bit, each moment, plays its own game. ~ Michel De Montaigne
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Michel De Montaigne
To safeguard one's health at the cost of too strict a diet is a tiresome illness, indeed. ~ Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
The cardinal virtue of all beauty is restraint. ~ Elsie De Wolfe
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Elsie De Wolfe
So love the thought of death, love it. ~ Anthony De Mello
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Anthony De Mello
It is a very trying task for deceitful people, always to have to cover up their lack of sincerity and to repair the breaking of their word. ~ Madeleine De Souvre, Marquise De ...
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Madeleine De Souvre, Marquise De ...
It is what the poets of Ireland used to be saying, that every brave man, good at fighting, and every man that could do great deeds and not be making much talk about them, was of the Sons of the Gael; and that every skilled man that had music and that did enchantments secretly, was of the Tuatha de Danaan. ~ Lady Gregory
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Lady Gregory
In a village of La Mancha, the name of which I have no desire to call to mind, there lived not long since one of those gentlemen that keep a lance in the lance-rack, an old buckler, a lean hack, and a greyhound for coursing. ~ Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra
What's the news of the war?' The doctor twisted the ends of his moustache and said, 'Germany is taking everything, the Italians are playing the fool, the French have run away, the Belgians have been overrun whilst they were looking the other way, the Poles have been charging tanks with cavalry, the Americans have been playing baseball, the British have been drinking tea and adjusting their monocles, the Russians have been sitting on their hands except when voting unanimously to do whatever they are told. Thank God we are out of it. Why don't we turn on the radio? ~ Louis De Bernieres
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Louis De Bernieres
I don't know why I just remembered this, and I haven't told anybody this, but we were shooting in Canyon de Chelly and we were so far up the canyon. Once we were up there, we were up there. There was no going back to your trailers. ~ James Badge Dale
Ventresca De Atun quotes by James Badge Dale
Opportunity ideas do not lie around waiting to be discovered. Such ideas need to be produced. ~ Edward De Bono
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Edward De Bono
Each of them was better together than either of them could have been apart. ~ Louis De Bernieres
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Louis De Bernieres
Wonderful maxim: not to talk of things any more after they are done. ~ Baron De Montesquieu
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Baron De Montesquieu
Viola De Lesseps: You have never spoken so well of him before.
William Shakespeare: He was not dead before. ~ Marc Norman
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Marc Norman
Every time that a people which has long crouched in slavery and ignorance is moved to its lowest depths there appear monsters and heroes, prodigies of crime and prodigies of virtue. ~ Alphonse De Lamartine
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Alphonse De Lamartine
Those only are despicable who fear to be despised. ~ Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
The love of esteem is the life and soul of society; it unites us to one another : I want your approbation, you stand in need of mine. By forsaking the converse of men, we forsake the virtues necessary for society; for when one is alone, one is apt to grow negligent; the world forces you to have a guard over yourself. ~ Anne-Therese De Marguenat De Courcelles
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Anne-Therese De Marguenat De Courcelles
I used to teach at Yale, which was at one time a center of postmodernist literary theory. Derrida was there. Paul de Man was there. ~ Harry Frankfurt
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Harry Frankfurt
Thanks to the Tour de France, riding the Champs-Elysees has a great cycling history. ~ Marianne Vos
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Marianne Vos
She'd seen her mother, her sisters, watched the way they wrapped their days around their men, the way it worked, a code she'd always known she'd avoid for her own life, who wanted it? what was the point? It wasn't worth having a man no matter how much people mocked you for lacking one. ~ Carolina De Robertis
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Carolina De Robertis
At the time, the question of woman's emancipation was of great interest to reformers. For the nihilist the issues were regarding work and sexual freedom. Because a woman's passport (which was used for general travel and not just travel abroad) was legally controlled by men - a father, or husband, had ultimate control of a woman's life. The nihilists solved this problem by having 'fictitious' marriages. This allowed for an emancipation of women de jure if not de facto. This resulted in women having the freedom of mobility to pursue some academic pursuits (which were curtailed during the White Terror) and some enterprise. Finally, the nihilists adopted the credo that adultery was a natural, and even desirable trait, in contrast to the spirit of their time, or their own cultural composition (i.e. they were prudes). ~ Anonymous
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Anonymous
Until such time as one has put to oneself a certain number of questions about an author, and has answered them, be it only to oneself alone and under one's breath, one cannot be sure of having grasped him completely, even though the questions may seem quite foreign to the nature of his writings: What were his religious ideas? How did the spectacle of nature affect him? How did he behave in the matter of women, of money? Was he rich, poor; what was his diet, his daily routine? What was his vice or his weakness? None of the answers to these questions is irrelevant. Even so, the answers tend to be surprising. However brilliant, however wise the work, it seems that the lives of artists can be relied upon to exhibit an extraordinary, incongruous range of turmoil, misery, and stupidity. ~ Alain De Botton
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Alain De Botton
Anyone who does not feel sufficiently strong in memory should not meddle with lying. ~ Michel De Montaigne
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Michel De Montaigne
It has never occurred to me to wish for empire or royalty, nor for the eminence of those high and commanding fortunes. My aim lies not in that direction; I love myself too well. ~ Michel De Montaigne
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Michel De Montaigne
For a taste for variety is one of the characteristic passions of democracy. ~ Alexis De Tocqueville
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
As you know, God is usually on the side of the big squadrons against the small. ~ Roger De Rabutin
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Roger De Rabutin
Look at the sky. Ask yourselves: Has the sheep eaten the flower, yes or no? And you will see how everything changes ... ~ Antoine De Saint Exupery
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
The state of emotional intoxication allows one to grasp existence in one's self and in the other, as both subjectivity and passivity. The two partners merge in this ambiguous unity; each one is freed of his own presence and achieves immediate communication with the other. ~ Simone De Beauvoir
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Simone De Beauvoir
Sculptors, poets, painters, musicians-they're the traditional purveyors of Beauty. But it can as easily be created by a gardener, a farmer, a plumber, a careworker. ~ Charles De Lint
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Charles De Lint
But I am designed to last forever," said the expendable, "if not interfered with."
"Isn't that nice? Expendable yet eternal. You'll be able to go back and observe any part of human history that you wish. Watch the pyramids being unbuilt. See the ice ages go and come in reverse. Watch the de-extinction of the dinosaurs as a meteor leaps out of the Gulf of Mexico."
"I will have no useful task. I will not be able to help the human race in any way. My existence will have no meaning after you are dead."
"Now you know how humans feel all the time. ~ Orson Scott Card
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Orson Scott Card
When the positive revolution takes hold it will no longer be enough for politicians to gain points through attack or being negative. Politicians will be expected to be constructive. ~ Edward De Bono
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Edward De Bono
On the question of his own enlightenment the Master always remained reticent, even though the disciples tried every means to get him to talk. All the information they had on this subject was what the Master once said to his youngest son, who wanted to know what his father felt when he became enlightened. The answer was, 'A fool.'
When the boy asked why, the Master had replied, 'Well, son, it was like going to great pains to break into a house by climbing a ladder and smashing a window--- and realizing later that the door of the house was open. ~ Anthony De Mello
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Anthony De Mello
It falls to you, Sancho, if you wish to take revenge for the affront committed against your donkey; I shall assist you from here with helpful words and advice. ~ Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra
The duration of a couple's passion is in proportion to the woman's original resistance or to the obstacles that social hazards have placed in the way of her happiness. ~ Honore De Balzac
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Honore De Balzac
Another illusion is that external events have the power to hurt you, that other people have the power to hurt you. They don't. It's you who give this power to them. ~ Anthony De Mello
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Anthony De Mello
Margaret De Wys's Ecstatic Healing is a holy voyage--a remarkable testament of one courageous woman forced by her own sickness to discover the mysterious world of shamanic and spiritual healing. Her's is a journey of surrendering, a journey to faith, and a journey toward accepting herself as a healer. As in her first book "Black Smoke" Margaret writes with utter honesty, which helps us as we join her on her personal journey and question our own life journey as human beings and as healers. ~ Itzhak Beery
Ventresca De Atun quotes by Itzhak Beery
Not to be able to bear with all bad-tempered people with whom the world is crowded, shows that a man has not a good temper himself. ~ Jean De La Bruyere
