Poetic Narrative quotes by F.N.Collier
#1. Turn to the wind, I dare you
For time is but a space that is captured
Live in fear or peace, which will you?
For none shall stand at ease
In fickleness of all human nature
You will fear while in peace
and complain while in fear. #Quote by F.N.Collier
Poetic Narrative quotes by Zadie Smith
#2. But as the prey evolves (and we are prey to the Mad who are pursuing us, desperate to impart their own brand of truth to the hapless commuter) so does the hunter, and the true professionals begin to tire of that old catchphrase "What you looking at?" begin to tire of that old catchphrase "What you looking at?" and move into more exotic territory. Take Mad Mary. Oh, the principle's still the same, it's still all about eye contact and the danger of making it, but now she's making eye contact from a hundred, two hundred, even three hundred yards away, and if she catches you doing the same she roars down the street, dreads and feathers and cape afloat, Hoodoo stick in hand, until she gets to where you are, spits on you, and begins. #Quote by Zadie Smith
Poetic Narrative quotes by Brian Bowers
#3. Through creativity, we are seamlessly connected and sustained as we pull
back the veil, revealing beneath our differences and distinctive characteristics,
human expression and the human experience are universal. It is the greatness
of this experience that connects us together by infinite invisible threads strewn
across the globe. This is my responsibility, passion and desire as an artist - my
soul purpose. #Quote by Brian Bowers
Poetic Narrative quotes by W.S. Gilbert
#4. Merely corroborative detail, intended to give artistic verisimilitude to an otherwise bald and unconvincing narrative. #Quote by W.S. Gilbert
Poetic Narrative quotes by Anthony Powell
#5. The exaggerated dramatic force employed by Umfraville in presenting his narrative made it hard to know what demeanour best to adopt in listening to the story. Tragedy might at any moment give way to farce, so that the listener had always to keep his wits about him. #Quote by Anthony Powell
Poetic Narrative quotes by Seanan McGuire
#6. None of the harvest tales started out as parasites. They were the most powerful pieces of the narrative, once upon a time. We fought back, turned them tame, gave them names and labels that pinned them like butterflies in the textbooks of religious studies professors and folklore teachers all around the world. #Quote by Seanan McGuire
Poetic Narrative quotes by Louise O'Neill
#7. He takes a glass from a passing waiter, but doesn't thank him. He rarely thanks the staff, I've observed. All the little things that I have ignored about this man, in order to make the narrative of true love and destiny fit. I tried to make him as perfect as I needed him to be. #Quote by Louise O'Neill
Poetic Narrative quotes by N. T. Wright
#8. Many today operate with two quite different types of "truth." If we asked, "Is it true that Jesus died on a cross?" we normally would mean, "Did it really happen?" But if we asked, "Is the parable of the Prodigal Son true?" we would quickly dismiss the idea that "it really happened"; that is simply not the sort of thing parables are. We would insist that, in quite another sense, the parable is indeed "true" in that we discover within the narrative a picture of #Quote by N. T. Wright
Poetic Narrative quotes by Juliana Rotich
#9. When I was growing up, there was still that narrative of 'you finish school, you go and get married, you become somebody's wife and you get kids and tend to them.' I think it is really important to reach for something. #Quote by Juliana Rotich
Poetic Narrative quotes by Marissa Meyer
#10. I'd call it a brilliant success. All those journalists are going to be so disappointed when they find out they missed it."
"They'll still have plenty to report on still. They don't need to intrude on Wolf and Scarlet's privacy anymore in order to do it."
"Are you going to hold a press conference in place of the wedding in a couple of days? Tell the world about your first foray into matrimonial officiating? Wax poetic about the historical importance of such a union?"
He turned his head and smirked down at her. "Nope. But I might tell them what an honor it was for me to be able to marry two of my closest friends, who happen to love each other very much."
Her grin widened. "That won't satisfy them at all."
"I know. That's half the appeal. #Quote by Marissa Meyer
Poetic Narrative quotes by Claudia Rankine
#11. I don't think people want to look at problems. They want a continuous narrative, an optimistic narrative. A narrative that says there's a present and a future - and what was in the past no longer exists. #Quote by Claudia Rankine
Poetic Narrative quotes by Northrop Frye
#12. Literally, the Bible is a gigantic myth, a narrative extending over the whole of time from creation to apocalypse, unified by a body of recurring imagery that "freezes" into a single metaphor cluster, the metaphors all being identified with the body of the Messiah, the man who is all men, the totality logoi who is one Logos, the grain of sand that is the world. #Quote by Northrop Frye
Poetic Narrative quotes by Jen Lancaster
#13. For me, my party views don't advance my narrative. Until I can find a way to write political satire like my idols Christopher Buckley or P.J. O'Rourke, I'll simply say what team I play for and leave it at that. #Quote by Jen Lancaster
Poetic Narrative quotes by Mikhail Lermontov
#14. In simple hearts the feeling for the beauty and grandeur of nature is a hundred-fold stronger and more vivid than in us, ecstatic composers of narratives in words and on paper. #Quote by Mikhail Lermontov
Poetic Narrative quotes by Jonathan Kozol
#15. I have been criticized throughout the course of my career for placing too much faith in the reliability of children's narratives; but I have almost always found that children are a great deal more reliable in telling us what actually goes on in public school than many of the adult experts who develop policies that shape their destinies. #Quote by Jonathan Kozol
Poetic Narrative quotes by William L. Shirer
#16. This crude, cowardly bargain seems not to have unduly bothered Hitler. If Mussolini was personally attracted to him, as Ciano said, by "something deeply rooted in his make-up," it might be said that the attraction was mutual, for the same mysterious reasons. Disloyal as he had been to some of his closest associates, a number of whom he had had murdered, such as Roehm and Strasser, Hitler maintained a strange and unusual loyalty to his ridiculous Italian partner that did not weaken, that indeed was strengthened when adversity and then disaster overtook the strutting, sawdust Roman Caesar. It is one of the interesting paradoxes of this narrative. #Quote by William L. Shirer
Poetic Narrative quotes by Maria Goodin
#17. What happens when you don't know the truth but you can't believe the lies, when you can't find a way--through fact or fiction--to give meaning to your own existence? Without a narrative for your own life, do you ever really exist at all? #Quote by Maria Goodin
Poetic Narrative quotes by Eleanor Catton
#18. For he was still unable to recall the apparition wholly to his own mind, much less to form a narrative for the pleasures of a third. #Quote by Eleanor Catton
Poetic Narrative quotes by Michael Stipe
#19. When I hear music as a fan, I see fields. I see landscapes. I close my eyes and see an entire universe that that music and the voice, or the narrative, create. A music video-and any other kind of visual reference-is created by someone else. #Quote by Michael Stipe
Poetic Narrative quotes by Marshall McLuhan
#20. In the "Republic," Plato vigorously attacked the oral, poetized form as a vehicle for communicating knowledge. He pleaded for a more precise method of communication and classification ("The Ideas"), one which would favor the investigation of facts, principles of reality, human nature, and conduct. What the Greeks meant by "poetry" was radically different from what we mean by poetry. Their "poetic" expression was a product of a collective psyche and mind. The mimetic form, a technique that exploited rhythm, meter and music, achieved the desired psychological response in the listener. Listeners could memorize with greater ease what was sung than what was said. Plato attacked this method because it discouraged disputation and argument. It was in his opinion the chief obstacle to abstract, speculative reasoning - he called it "a poison, and an enemy of the people. #Quote by Marshall McLuhan
Poetic Narrative quotes by Susan Barker
#21. It would be unthinkable to have a top-ten list of multiple narrative novels that doesn't include David Mitchell. 'Cloud Atlas' is the most obvious choice, but I have opted for Mitchell's slightly lesser known debut, 'Ghostwritten.' #Quote by Susan Barker
Poetic Narrative quotes by James Emanuel
#22. For me, the promised land, always seeming just beyond my reach, is the poetic masterpiece, that perfect union of words in cadence, each beckoned and shined and breathed into place, each moving in well-tried harmony of tone and texture and meaning with its neighbors, molding an almost living being so faithful to observable truth, so expressive of the mass of humanity and so aglow with the beauty of just proportions that the reader feels a chill in his legs or a catch in his throat. #Quote by James Emanuel
Poetic Narrative quotes by Helen Dunmore
#23. Writing children's books gives a writer a very strong sense of narrative drive. #Quote by Helen Dunmore
Poetic Narrative quotes by Adam Phillips
#24. The tickling narrative, unlike the sexual narrative, has no climax.
Is the tickling scene, at its most reassuring, not a unique representation of desire and, at its most unsettling, a paradigm of the perverse contract?
Does it not highlight, this delightful game, the impossibility of satisfaction and of reunion, with its continual reenactment of the irresistible attraction and the inevitable repulsion of the object, in which the final satisfaction is frustration? #Quote by Adam Phillips
Poetic Narrative quotes by Honore De Balzac
#25. A valley full of genuine suffering, and of joys that often turn out to be false, and so incredibly tumultuous that it takes something God only knows how outrageous to cause a lasting stir. But here and there some immense heaping up of vices and virtues turns mere sorrow grand and solemn, and their very sight makes even selfishness and personal advantage stop and feel pity - though that notion of pity is much like some tasty fruit that gets gobbled right up. Civilization's high-riding chariot, like the believer-crushing car of the idol Juggernaut, barely slows down when it comes to a heart a bit harder to crack, and if such a heart gets in the way it's pretty quickly smashed, and on goes the glorious march.[...]
After you've read all about Pere Goriot's miserable secrets, you'll have yourself a good dinner and blame your indifference on the author, scolding him for exaggeration, accusing him of having waxed poetic. Ah, but let me tell you: this drama is not fictional, it's not a novel. All is true - so true you'll be able to recognize everything that goes into it in your own life, perhaps even in your heart. #Quote by Honore De Balzac
Poetic Narrative quotes by Casey Spooner
#26. It is impossible not to react to the current state of affairs through personal action and artistic production. We have been at war for three years. One desperately feels the need for someone to speak some sort of truth, either poetic or factual. #Quote by Casey Spooner
Poetic Narrative quotes by Bhanu Kapil
#27. A schizophrenic narrative cannot process the dynamic elements of an image, any image, whether pleasant, enriching or already so bad it can't be tendered in the lexicon of poses available to it. #Quote by Bhanu Kapil
Poetic Narrative quotes by L.R.W. Lee
#28. You control whether you are happy. It's all your narrative and you can change it if you choose to. - L. R. W. Lee Andy Smithson: Blast of the Dragon's Fury #Quote by L.R.W. Lee
Poetic Narrative quotes by Dorothy Dunnett
#29. Jerott's hand increased its grip on her arm. 'He is an island with all its bridges wantonly severed. What hostage to evil,' said Jerott, poetic in his thumping displeasure, 'will this night's business conceive?'

'I don't know. But they're both nice and clean, if that's anything,' said Philippa. And led the way philosophically down. #Quote by Dorothy Dunnett
Poetic Narrative quotes by Tommy Lee Jones
#30. Partnerships are good engines for narrative. #Quote by Tommy Lee Jones
Poetic Narrative quotes by Darko Suvin
#31. The folktale world is oriented positively toward its protagonist; a folktale is defined by the hero's triumph: magic weapons and helpers are, with the necessary narrative retardation, at his beck and call. #Quote by Darko Suvin
Poetic Narrative quotes by David Foster Wallace
#32. Interviewer ...In the case of "American Psycho" I felt there was something more than just this desire to inflict pain--or that Ellis was being cruel the way you said serious artists need to be willing to be.

DFW: You're just displaying the sort of cynicism that lets readers be manipulated by bad writing. I think it's a kind of black cynicism about today's world that Ellis and certain others depend on for their readership. Look, if the contemporary condition is hopelessly shitty, insipid, materialistic, emotionally retarded, sadomasochistic, and stupid, then I (or any writer) can get away with slapping together stories with characters who are stupid, vapid, emotionally retarded, which is easy, because these sorts of characters require no development. With descriptions that are simply lists of brand-name consumer products. Where stupid people say insipid stuff to each other. If what's always distinguished bad writing -- flat characters, a narrative world that's cliched and not recognizably human, etc. -- is also a description of today's world, then bad writing becomes an ingenious mimesis of a bad world. If readers simply believe the world is stupid and shallow and mean, then Ellis can write a mean shallow stupid novel that becomes a mordant deadpan commentary on the badness of everything. Look man, we'd probably most of us agree that these are dark times, and stupid ones, but do we need fiction that does nothing but dramatize how dark and stupid everything is?

Poetic Narrative quotes by James K.A. Smith
#33. Discipline is aimed at formation for a specific end, and that end is determined by our founding narrative. #Quote by James K.A. Smith
Poetic Narrative quotes by Joseph Campbell
#34. Shakespeare said that art is a mirror held up to nature. And that's what it is. The nature is your nature, and all of these wonderful poetic images of mythology are referring to something in you. When your mind is trapped by the image out there so that you never make the reference to yourself, you have misread the image.
The inner world is the world of your requirements and your energies and your structure and your possibilities that meets the outer world. And the outer world is the field of your incarnation. That's where you are. You've got to keep both going. As Novalis said, 'The seat of the soul is there where the inner and outer worlds meet. #Quote by Joseph Campbell
