Courtisane Festival quotes by Ian Doescher
#1. I watched the Star Wars trilogy with some good friends of mine for the first time in a few years, I read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies-one of those first mashup books-and then I went to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival with my family. #Quote by Ian Doescher
Courtisane Festival quotes by Viggo Mortensen
#2. Toronto Film Festival is one of those festivals where there are 400 movies, and unless you have a distributor who is super confident and puts a lot of money into it, sometimes movies can go unwatched or unnoticed. #Quote by Viggo Mortensen
Courtisane Festival quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#3. Life is a festival only to the wise. Seen from the nook and chimneyside of prudence, it wears a ragged and dangerous front. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Courtisane Festival quotes by Liz Jensen
#4. Hangovers are a vivid form of vengeance. Last night my apartment became the venue for a small, introverted chardonnay festival. A melancholy choir of Bulgarians provided the entertainment, via a set of headphones that ended up irredeemably tangled beneath the bed. Part of me just watched. The other part was in charge. #Quote by Liz Jensen
Courtisane Festival quotes by David McCullough
#5. So, it was done, the break was made, in words at least: on July 2, 1776, in Philadelphia, the American colonies declared independence. If not all thirteen clocks had struck as one, twelve had, and with the other silent, the effect was the same.
It was John Adams, more than anyone, who had made it happen. Further, he seems to have understood more clearly than any what a momentous day it was and in the privacy of two long letters to Abigail, he poured out his feelings as did no one else:
The second day of July 1776 will be the most memorable epocha in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the Day of Deliverance by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other from this time forward forever more. #Quote by David McCullough
Courtisane Festival quotes by Aidan Gillen
#6. I like the Edinburgh Film Festival, and I've liked what I've experienced of Glasgow's Film Festival too. #Quote by Aidan Gillen
Courtisane Festival quotes by R. Joseph Hoffmann
#7. Rightly understood the New Year festival is an act of faith. It is easier for the year to change than to change ourselves. But we believe that somehow, magically, one will lead to the other. #Quote by R. Joseph Hoffmann
Courtisane Festival quotes by Jeremy Irvine
#8. Each year we go to the Cannes film festival and I tend to have all my friends pile in the back of my car and we'll drive from London. The poor production company think they're only putting me up and suddenly they've got eight people sleeping on my hotel room floor. #Quote by Jeremy Irvine
Courtisane Festival quotes by Destin Bays
#9. It was early spring, 326 BC, in the beautiful city of Chersonesus protected by a haunting deep blue sea and a giant wall. Today was the second day of the Festival of Dionysus. #Quote by Destin Bays
Courtisane Festival quotes by Brian Henson
#10. There was a producer from the Aspen Comedy Festival who happened to be there, as a friend of a friend, and she said, "I'd like to book you into the Aspen Comedy Festival," and we said, "Well, there isn't really a show to book in, this is just a little showcase and it's really our workshop." And she said, "No, it's great, I love it, just do exactly what you did." #Quote by Brian Henson
Courtisane Festival quotes by Jane Ellen Harrison
#11. Greek writers of the fifth century B.C. have a way of speaking of, an attitude towards, religion, as though it were wholly a thing of joyful confidence, a friendly fellowship with the gods, whose service is but a high festival for man. In Homer sacrifice is but, as it were, the signal for a banquet of abundant roast flesh and sweet wine; we hear nothing of fasting, of cleansing, and atonement. This we might perhaps explain as part of the general splendid unreality of the heroic saga, but sober historians of the fifth century B.C. express the same spirit. Thucydides is assuredly by nature no reveller, yet religion is to him in the main 'a rest from toil.' He makes Pericles say: 'Moreover we have provided for our spirit very many opportunities of recreation, by the celebration of games and sacrifices throughout the year. #Quote by Jane Ellen Harrison
Courtisane Festival quotes by Milos Forman
#12. I remember in 1968 when we were in Cannes, in the festival, and we were supposed to be there 10 days, and the second day the festival collapsed because the French, you know, film-makers raised the red flag in the festival and ended the festival. #Quote by Milos Forman
Courtisane Festival quotes by Tim Dorsey
#13. Gasparilla is Tampa's annual heritage festival, and Tampa's heritage appears to be about alcohol. #Quote by Tim Dorsey
Courtisane Festival quotes by Leslie Jamison
#14. In La Paz, during January, the Bolivians hold a traditional festival called Alasitas. For three weeks, markets . . . are full of tiny objects, tiny everything: tiny horses, tiny computers, tiny diplomats, tiny houses, tiny jeeps, tiny llamas and tiny llama steaks, tiny passports. People buy models of whatever they need most. . . . They offer their miniature figurines to miniature man - Ekeko the midget, the Aymara god of abundance, a smoking doll cloaked in bright wool. They pin their miniature desires to his miniature poncho. #Quote by Leslie Jamison
Courtisane Festival quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#15. There's another wonderful Italian expression: l'arte d'arrangiarsi-the art of making something out of nothing. The art of turning a few simple ingredients into a feast,or a few gathered friends into a festival. Anyone with a talent of happiness can do this, not only the rich. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Courtisane Festival quotes by Hayden Panettiere
#16. The frustrating part of it is that you're generally known for what you did last. I've had the privilege of doing some very cool independent films that, a lot of the time, the general public doesn't see unless you're at a film festival or you're into that kind of movie. #Quote by Hayden Panettiere
Courtisane Festival quotes by Dion Fortune
#17. It's quite simple and natural if you think it out. The old pagan Britons were in the habit of having fairs when they assembled at their holy centres for the big sun festivals. The fairs went on just the same, whether they were pagan or Christian, and the missionary centres grew up where the crowds came together. When the king was converted, they just changed the Sun for the Son. The common people never knew the difference. They went for the fun of the fair and took part in the ceremonies to bring good luck and make the fields fertile. How were they to know the difference between Good Friday and the spring ploughing festival? There was a human sacrifice on both occasions. #Quote by Dion Fortune
Courtisane Festival quotes by Amy Sedaris
#18. Well I went to New Orleans to cover the jazz festival for Trio, it's this new arts channel, it's really great. #Quote by Amy Sedaris
Courtisane Festival quotes by Ambrose
#19. Now since you are celebrating the holy Pascha, you should know, brethren, what the Pascha is. Pascha means the crossing-over, and so the Festival is called by this name. For it was on this day that the Children of Israel crossed over out of Egypt, and the Son of God crossed over from this world to His Father. What gain is it to celebrate unless you imitate Him Whom you worship; that is, unless you cross over from Egypt, that is, from the darkness of evildoing to the light of virtue, from the love of this world to the love of your heavenly home? #Quote by Ambrose
Courtisane Festival quotes by Josef Pieper
#20. To celebrate a festival means: to live out, for some special occasion and in an uncommon manner, the universal assent to the world as a whole. #Quote by Josef Pieper
Courtisane Festival quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#21. I think of Sean folded low over the red stallion, riding bareback at the top of the cliffs. Of the easy way they had with each other when I met him to look at the uisce mare. I think, even, of the way Sean looked when he stood on the bloody festival rock and said his name, and then Corr's, like it was just one fact after the other. Of the way he said "the sky and the sand and the sea and Corr" to me. And I feel a bite of unfairness, because in everything but name, it seems to me that Sean Kendrick already owns Corr. #Quote by Maggie Stiefvater
Courtisane Festival quotes by Jason Reitman
#22. I remember when I was like 19 years old and I started a desk calendar company to pay for my first short film, just so I could say one day that my daddy didn't pay for my first short film. And I really established myself in the film festival world. #Quote by Jason Reitman
Courtisane Festival quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#23. Deity of the ruined temple! The broken strings of Vina sing no more your praise. The bells in the evening proclaim not your time of worship. The air is still and silent about you.
In your desolate dwelling comes the vagrant spring breeze. It brings the tidings of flowers
the flowers that for your worship are offered no more.
Your worshipper of old wanders ever longing for favour still refused. In the eventide, when fires and shadows mingle with the gloom of dust, he wearily comes back to the ruined temple with hunger in his heart.
Many a festival day comes to you in silence, deity of the ruined temple. Many a night of worship goes away with lamp unlit.
Many new images are built by masters of cunning art and carried to the holy stream of oblivion when their time is come.
Only the deity of the ruined temple remains unworshipped in deathless neglect. #Quote by Rabindranath Tagore
Courtisane Festival quotes by Pat Conroy
#24. I meet kids now who become novelists, poets, write for the theater and movies, who were simply inspired by what they saw during the Spoleto Festival. #Quote by Pat Conroy
Courtisane Festival quotes by Luci Swindoll
#25. Life is a happy thing, a festival to be enjoyed rather than a drudgery to be endured. #Quote by Luci Swindoll
Courtisane Festival quotes by Sarah Rees Brennan
#26. Sin met Mae and Alan coming into the flat.
Mae frowned. "Is it no-shirts festival day?"
"Every day with Nick is no-shirts festival day," Alan said absently, but he was frowning too. #Quote by Sarah Rees Brennan
Courtisane Festival quotes by Colin Thompson
#27. Remember is the last month,' said Festival.
'Remember's not a month.'
'Of course it is,' said Festival. 'There are twelve months thirty days long and the five days at the end of the year that are left over are called Remember. It's when we all remember what happened in the past year, all the people who were born and all the people who died. You have to have Remember, otherwise you'd start the next year out of balance. #Quote by Colin Thompson
Courtisane Festival quotes by Saffron Burrows
#28. I play the guitar. This year at the Sundance film festival, I joined the band from 'The Guitar' on stage. We warmed up for Patti Smith, and then the director Michel Gondry got on the drums to play some songs from the soundtrack to his film Be Kind Rewind with Mos Def. It was pretty mad. #Quote by Saffron Burrows
Courtisane Festival quotes by Lili Wilkinson
#29. I don't believe in telling people what they should do, so I'll tell you what you shouldn't do instead... young people can't write a book because they don't have enough life experience, teachers and parents please cover your ears for a second, that it BULLSHIT! Anyone can write a book if they have an idea. #Quote by Lili Wilkinson
Courtisane Festival quotes by Sparrow 13 Laughingwand
#30. Bullshit is as common as lame poetry and more unavoidable than
those armed men who are there to protect you from
Bullshit like this is straight from the lab and god loves you and
the government doesn't want war and it's the best movie since
Repo Man and if i stopped drinking the world might end anyway
and breathanarianism and immortality for anything besides

Bullshit that's as common as murder and jailhouse tattoos selling
bunk drugs in paint chip hotels where a cigarette burn on
the mattress tells you more about death than a splatter movie
festival. #Quote by Sparrow 13 Laughingwand
Courtisane Festival quotes by Harriet Prescott Spofford
#31. What rending pains were close at hand! Death! and what a death! worse than any other that is to
be named! Water, be it cold or warm, that which buoys up blue icefields, or which bathes tropical
coasts with currents of balmy bliss, is yet a gentle conqueror, kisses as it kills, and draws you
down gently through darkening fathoms to its heart. Death at the sword is the festival of trumpet
and bugle and banner, with glory ringing out around you and distant hearts thrilling through yours.
No gnawing disease can bring such hideous end as this; for that is a fiend bred of your own flesh,
and this - is it a fiend, this living lump of appetites? What dread comes with the thought of
perishing in flames! but fire, let it leap and hiss never so hotly, is something too remote, too alien,
to inspire us with such loathly horror as a wild beast; if it have a life, that life is too utterly beyond
our comprehension. Fire is not half ourselves; as it devours, arouses neither hatred nor disgust; is
not to be known by the strength of our lower natures let loose; does not drip our blood into our
faces with foaming chaps, nor mouth nor slaver above us with vitality. Let us be ended by fire,
and we are ashes, for the winds to bear, the leaves to cover; let us be ended by wild beasts, and the
base, cursed thing howls with us forever through the forest. #Quote by Harriet Prescott Spofford
Courtisane Festival quotes by J.G. Ballard
#32. The film festival measured a mile in length, from the Martinez to the Vieux Port, where sales executives tucked into their platters of fruits de mer, but was only fifty yards deep. For a fortnight the Croisette and its grand hotels willingly became a facade, the largest stage set in the world. Without realizing it, the crowds under the palm trees were extras recruited to play their traditional roles. As they cheered and hooted, they were far more confident than the film actors on display, who seemed ill at ease when they stepped from their limos, like celebrity criminals ferried to a mass trial by jury at the Palais, a full-scale cultural Nuremberg furnished with film clips of the atrocities they had helped to commit. #Quote by J.G. Ballard
Courtisane Festival quotes by Thomas Ligotti
#33. The only way I can describe the visions I witnessed with even faint approximation is in terms of other scenes which might arouse similar impressions of tortuous chaos: perhaps a festival of colors twisting in blackness, a tentacled abyss that alternately seems to glisten moistly as with some horrendous dew, then suddenly dulls into an arid glow, like bone-colored stars shining over an extra-terrestrial desert. #Quote by Thomas Ligotti
Courtisane Festival quotes by Jenny Slate
#34. 'Obvious Child,' the short, had a nice life online and a great festival run, but the short and the feature still stand apart from everything else I've done. I play a woman who you might meet in life. My other work is much more heightened. #Quote by Jenny Slate
Courtisane Festival quotes by Robert Jordan
#35. I had been thinking you were going to stay out on the farm through the whole Festival, Perrin Aybara shouted at Rand over the clamor. Half a head shorter than Rand, the curly-haired blacksmith's apprentice was so stocky as to seem a man and a half wide, with arms and shoulders thick enough to rival those of Master Luhhan himself. He could easily have pushed through the throng, but that was not his way. He picked his path carefully, offering apologies to people who had only half a mind to notice anything but the peddler. He made the apologies anyway, and tried not to jostle anyone as he worked through the crowd to Rand and Mat. #Quote by Robert Jordan
Courtisane Festival quotes by Emile M. Cioran
#36. Democracy: a festival of mediocrity. #Quote by Emile M. Cioran
Courtisane Festival quotes by Alice Meynell
#37. I have known some grim bells, with not a single joyous note in the whole peal, so forced to hurry for a human festival, with their harshness made light of, as though the Bishop of Hereford had again been forced to dance in his boots by a merry highwayman. #Quote by Alice Meynell
Courtisane Festival quotes by Anonymous
#38. On the opposite side, at about seven o'clock, is the little town of Urbanna where the famous Oyster Festival is held every year. #Quote by Anonymous
Courtisane Festival quotes by Katy B
#39. When I do a festival, I want everyone to have a party, I think it is kind of similar to a club where everyone is there to have a good time and celebrate not being at work or just being able to have fun. I love people dancing to my music as well; if I can make them dance I feel happy. #Quote by Katy B
Courtisane Festival quotes by Balakoteswara Panchakshari
#40. I know when a festival comes,

I'm just searching for a beautiful birthday quote for her. #Quote by Balakoteswara Panchakshari
Courtisane Festival quotes by Caitlin Moran
#41. Everything I am is based on this ugly building on its lonely lawn - lit up during winter darkness; open in the slashing rain - which allowed a girl so poor she didn't even own a purse to come in twice a day and experience actual magic: traveling through time, making contact with the dead - Dorothy Parker, Stella Gibbons, Charlotte Brontë, Spike Milligan.

A library in the middle of a community is a cross be-tween an emergency exit, a life raft and a festival. They are cathedrals of the mind; hospitals of the soul; theme parks of the imagination. On a cold, rainy island, they are the only sheltered public spaces where you are not a consumer, but a citizen, instead. A human with a brain and a heart and a desire to be uplifted, rather than a customer with a credit card and an inchoate "need" for "stuff." A mall - the shops - are places where your money makes the wealthy wealthier. But a library is where the wealthy's taxes pay for you to become a little more extraordinary, instead. A satisfying reversal. A balancing of the power. #Quote by Caitlin Moran
Courtisane Festival quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#42. You are invited to the festival of this world and your life is blessed. #Quote by Rabindranath Tagore
Courtisane Festival quotes by Green Day
#43. Y'know, when I first started listening to punk rock music, I used to get my fucking ass kicked for it! I was known as a fucking freak! But now I'm amongst many many many freaks here with me tonight!
- Billie Joe Armstrong,Stay The Night, Reading Festival 2013 #Quote by Green Day

#44. Nobody wanted to ride bitch to his own testicle festival. #Quote by Debra Anastasia
