Quotes Part 4

On this, the 23rd day of the 11th month of the year 2010 I offer you the following quotes:

“Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for thou art crunchy and taste good with ketchup.”

“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.” – JRR Tolkien

“Everything that can be counted does not necessarily count; everything that counts cannot necessarily be counted.” – Albert Einstein

“The role of a writer is not to say what we all can say, but what we are unable to say.” – Anais Nin

“The good writer, the great writer, has what I have called the three S’s: the power to see, to sense, and to say. That is, he is perceptive, he is feeling, and he has the power to express in language what he observes and reacts to.” – Lawrence Clark Powell

“Who has never killed an hour? Not casually or without thought, but carefully: a premeditated murder of minutes. The violence comes from a combination of giving up, not caring, and a resignation that getting past it is all you can hope to accomplish. So you kill the hour. You do not work, you do not read, you do not daydream. If you sleep it is not because you need to sleep. And when at last it is over, there is no evidence: no weapon, no blood, and no body. The only clue might be the shadows beneath your eyes or a terribly thin line near the corner of your mouth indicating something has been suffered, that in the privacy of your life you have lost something and the loss is too empty to share.” – Mark Z. Danielewski (House of Leaves)

“Unfortunately, a super-abundance of dreams is paid for by a growing potential for nightmares.”Sir Peter Ustinov
“Ideologies separate us. Dreams and anguish bring us together.”Eugene Ionesco
“The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone.”Harriet Beecher Stowe
“Evil is always unspectacular and always human. And shares our bed…and eats at our table.”W.H. Auden
