Morvern Callar Book quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien

Morvern Callar Book quotes by Lakshmi Pratury
#4. Maybe we all need to leave our children with a value legacy, and not a financial one. A value for things with a personal touch - an autographed book, a soul-searching letter. #Quote by Lakshmi Pratury
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Jean Rostand
#5. If a given scientist had not made a given discovery, someone else would have done so a little later. Johann Mendel dies unknown after having discovered the laws of heredity: thirty-five years later, three men rediscover them. But the book that is not written will never be written. The premature death of a great scientist delays humanity; that of a great writer deprives it. #Quote by Jean Rostand
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Roosh V
#6. I'm going to close out this book with some bad news. One day you're going to die, and you can't predict when that will be. All I can guarantee is that it will be sooner than you expect. #Quote by Roosh V
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Lindsay Patton
#7. Being a writer, I'd never judged a book by its cover, but I suppose that the way a book carried itself gave you a bit of an insight on what was on the inside. #Quote by Lindsay Patton
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Janet Malcolm
#8. Something seems to happen to people when they meet a journalist, and what happens is exactly the opposite of what one would expect. One would think that extreme wariness and caution would be the order of the day, but in fact childish trust and impetuosity are far more common. The journalistic encounter seems to have the same regressive effect on a subject as the psychoanalytic encounter. The subject becomes a kind of child of the writer, regarding him as a permissive, all-accepting, all-forgiving mother, and expecting that the book will be written by her. Of course, the book is written by the strict, all-noticing, unforgiving father. #Quote by Janet Malcolm
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Alice Hoffman
#9. Even in times when it's difficult to figure out, how do you go forward, art - and books - always help. #Quote by Alice Hoffman
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Alyson Noel
#10. Some things are meant to be gone FOREVER. #Quote by Alyson Noel
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Jeffrey Archer
#11. While there may not be a book in every one of us, there is so often a damned good short story. #Quote by Jeffrey Archer
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Lauren Handel Zander
#12. Ever notice how on a bad day you never deserve a salad? I mean how long do you think your bad mood would really last if you only fed your brat celery? How many bad days would your brat tolerate if it no longer got rewarded a drink, a cigarette, or an entire Netflix series on the couch for it. #Quote by Lauren Handel Zander
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Gene Wolfe
#13. I would like [my readers] to better understand human beings and human life as a result of having read [my] stories. I'd like them to feel that this was an experience that made things better for them and an experience that gave them hope. I think that the kind of things that we talk about at this conference -- fantasy very much so, science fiction, and even horror -- the message that we're sending is the reverse of the message sent by what is called "realistic fiction." (I happen to think that realistic fiction is not, in fact, realistic, but that's a side issue.) And what we are saying is that it doesn't have to be like this: things can be different. Our society can be changed. Maybe it's worse, maybe it's better. Maybe it's a higher civilization, maybe it's a barbaric civilization. But it doesn't have to be the way it is now. Things can change. And we're also saying things can change for you in your life. Look at the difference between Severian the apprentice and Severian the Autarch [in The Book of the New Sun], for example. The difference beteween Silk as an augur and Silk as calde [in The Book of the Long Sun]. You see?

We don't always have to be this. There can be something else. We can stop doing the thing that we're doing. Moms Mabley had a great line in some movie or other -- she said, "You keep on doing what you been doing and you're gonna keep on gettin' what you been gettin'." And we don't have to keep on doing what we've been doing. We can do something #Quote by Gene Wolfe
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Muhsin Mahdi
#14. Now "The Arabian Nights," some of which, but not nearly all, are given in this volume, are only fairy tales of the East. The people of Asia, Arabia, and Persia told them in their own way, not for children, but for grown-up people. There were no novels then, nor any printed books, of course; but there were people whose profession it was to amuse men and women by telling tales. They dressed the fairy stories up, and made the characters good Mahommedans, living in Bagdad or India. The events were often supposed to happen in the reign of the great Caliph, or ruler of the Faithful, Haroun al Raschid, who lived in Bagdad in 786-808 A.D. The vizir who accompanies the Caliph was also a real person of the great family of the Barmecides. He was put to death by the Caliph in a very cruel way, nobody ever knew why. The stories must have been told in their present shape a good long while after the Caliph died, when nobody knew very exactly what had really happened. At last some storyteller thought of writing down the tales, and fixing them into a kind of framework, as if they had all been narrated to a cruel Sultan by his wife. Probably the tales were written down about the time when Edward I. was fighting Robert Bruce. But changes were made in them at different times, and a great deal that is very dull and stupid was put in, and plenty of verses. Neither the verses nor the dull pieces are given in this book. #Quote by Muhsin Mahdi
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Machado De Assis
#15. His eyes, blind to external reality but highly perceptive in the realm of the inner life, rose from the book to the ceiling and returned to the book. #Quote by Machado De Assis
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Paul Kalanithi
#16. One chapter of my life seemed to have ended; perhaps the whole book was closing. Instead of being the pastoral figure aiding a life transition, I found myself the sheep, lost and confused. Severe illness wasn't life-altering, it was life-shattering. #Quote by Paul Kalanithi
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Miguel Syjuco
#17. With 'Ilustrado,' I set out to change the way we read literature, and I think I failed spectacularly. In fact, I know I failed. In reaching further than I could, I may not have produced a life- or literature-changing book, but I did produce one I am proud of. #Quote by Miguel Syjuco
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Eric Schlosser
#18. Basically, I'm a perpetual student. I start by finding a subject I really don't know very much, but that I'm curious about. I learn about it through books in a library, by doing interviews with people who know a lot about the subject, and by going out on my own and seeing for myself what's happening. #Quote by Eric Schlosser
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Scott Lynch
#19. Let us speak behind our hands, lest our lips be read as the book of our designs, and let us find some place where only gods and rats may hear our words aloud. #Quote by Scott Lynch
Morvern Callar Book quotes by J.D. Robb
#20. I got you a present."
"Did you?"
"It's a book of poetry
romancy stuff. I thought, 'How schmaltzy is that,' so it seemed like the thing. Then I screwed up and left it in my desk at work #Quote by J.D. Robb
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Mari Mancusi
#21. What, are you like Buffy or something? A vampire slayer?"
I wish. "No, but my sister is. And my boyfriend's a vampire so I know a lot about their kind."
Jayden shrinks back from me, wide-eyed.
"No, no. He's one of the good ones. Not all vampires are evil," I assure him.
"So ... you're dating ... Edward Cullen."
"Sure, if you have to relate it all to a Stephenie Meyer book," I grudgingly agree. "But don't say that to Magnus's face. He's a card-carrying member of Team Jacob. Even has the T-shirt. #Quote by Mari Mancusi
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Benjamin Alire Saenz
#22. Before I nodded off, I thought about what my dad had said - ‚Äčthat life wasn't all nice and neat like a book, and life didn't have a plot filled with characters who said intelligent and beautiful things. But he wasn't right about that. See, my dad said intelligent and beautiful things. And he was real. He was the most real thing in the entire world. So why couldn't I be like him? #Quote by Benjamin Alire Saenz
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Emma Jackson
#23. I can't say I remember this bit in the book,' she commented when he was finished and she was sweeping an applicator along his collarbone and pressing it lightly into the hollow beneath.
'They call it "artistic licence". '
'Not just the producers trying to shoe-horn in a scene involving you in a wet shirt?'
'Why would they want that?' There was a soft gleam of white teeth as his lips parted in a smile. #Quote by Emma Jackson
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Nicholas Sparks
#24. Remember: A best-selling book usually follows a simple rule, It's a wonderful story, wonderfully told; not, It's a wonderfully told story. #Quote by Nicholas Sparks
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Nikola Tesla
#25. Years hence it will be possible for nations to fight without armies, ships or guns, by weapons far more terrible, to the destructive action and range of which there is virtually no limit. A city, at any distance whatsoever from the enemy, can be destroyed by him and no power on earth can stop him from doing so. #Quote by Nikola Tesla
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Tim LaHaye
#26. One of the comments that we've heard that has really blessed us is people have been driven back to the book of Revelation to prove us wrong only to find that what we said was there. #Quote by Tim LaHaye
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Pleasefindthis
#27. The Angel Of Almost Then I was somewhere else, and it was bright. A voice said "If you'd carried on practicing that song you almost got right, you would've been great. Bigger than the Beatles." It continued "If you'd carried on working on that book you almost finished, it would've changed the lives of many, many people." Then it said "If you'd tried to reach the one you loved just a little bit more, when you almost had them, your life would've been completely different." And I asked "Is this what happens when I die?" And the voice said "Almost. #Quote by Pleasefindthis
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Paul Benedetti
#28. I have high hopes for the book and have already made a down payment on a Ferrari. Well, it's actually a small metal model of a Ferrari, kind of like a Dinky Toy, but a little bit bigger. #Quote by Paul Benedetti
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Joan Borysenko
#29. You are at my side, dear friends, and God is everywhere. Yet ultimately we are alone, making our way home by the candle of the heart. The light is steady and sure but extends only far enough to see the next step.
Many times the light seems to go out. But another light, one held by a stranger or friend, a book or a song, a blackbird or a wild flower, comes close enough so that we can see our path by its light. And in time we realize that the light we have borrowed was always our own. #Quote by Joan Borysenko
Morvern Callar Book quotes by C.A. Fletcher
#30. I realise how much time I used to spend with my head in a book, filling the emptiness of my world and letting the pages distract from the darkness in the shadows behind me. #Quote by C.A. Fletcher
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Ezra Pound
#31. With one day's reading a man may have the key in his hands. #Quote by Ezra Pound
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Brian K. Vaughan
#32. Well, you know what they say, the reader is the final contributor. Cheers for doing the heavy lifting. #Quote by Brian K. Vaughan
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Daphne Du Maurier
#33. One of my favorite first sentences of a
book is from Rebecca, Last night I dreamt
I went to Manderley again. #Quote by Daphne Du Maurier
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Franz Wright
#34. I used to comfort myself with the idea of a book with serrated, detachable pages, so that you could read the thing the way it came and then shuffle the pages, like a giant deck of cards, and read the book in an entirely different order. It would be a different book, wouldn't it? It would be one of infinite books. #Quote by Franz Wright
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Jim Harrison
#35. I need the solidity of a whole book because life often doesn't cohere for me, I mean my perception of life, and I need to find some bedrock however temporary. It's like books help me glue the parts of my life together into an acceptable whole. #Quote by Jim Harrison
Morvern Callar Book quotes by P. J. O'Rourke
#36. Imagine if all of life were determined by majority rule. Every meal would be a pizza. Every pair of pants, even those in a Brooks Brothers suit, would be stone-washed denim. Celebrity diet and exercise books would be the only thing on the shelves at the library. And - since women are a majority of the population - we'd all be married to Mel Gibson. #Quote by P. J. O'Rourke
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Theodore Dalrymple
#37. Metaphysics, said the late nineteenth-century idealist philosopher Bradley, is the finding of bad reasons for what we believe on instinct; but metaphysics has changed in the meantime, and is now the finding of bad reasons for what we cannot possibly believe however hard we try. All I can say is that the disbelief in the reality of consciousness or personal identity has never prevented anyone from copyrighting his book in which that unreality is argued; and I very much doubt that any author of such a book has ever been completely indifferent as to the bank account into which its royalties were paid. #Quote by Theodore Dalrymple
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Viola Davis
#38. I love young adult fantasies. While I say that, I have not seen all of the Twilight and Harry Potter movies. But I've read all of the books, and I love them. I love them because I enjoy being transported to a different world and having my imagination challenged. That's a huge part of what we do as actors. We have to imagine ourselves in a different world. And when you are in a young adult fantasy, it challenges you in the best way. #Quote by Viola Davis
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Terry Pratchett
#39. I had a deprived childhood, you see. I had lots of other kids to play with and my parents bought me outdoor toys and refused to ill-treat me, so it never occurred to me to seek solitary consolation with a good book. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Jacob Wren
#40. {T}here are millions of books published every year exposing the world's corruption, and the corruption of the world only increases. Each book, in its own way, has teeth but nothing to bite into. No clear way to attack. There are also millions of books pushing for things to remain the same, or teaching you how to make money at the expense of others. Everything balances out, but the balance is so deeply imperfect, always tilting further and further towards the worst. #Quote by Jacob Wren
Morvern Callar Book quotes by Jarrett J. Krosoczka
#41. A child can have too many toys, but never
enough books. #Quote by Jarrett J. Krosoczka
