Quanh Nam quotes by Tara Sivec
#1. I leaned in to give him a hug and he stopped me with his hand to my forehead.
"You don't want to do that, son."
I stepped back and gave him a sympathetic look.

"No. I'm still not sure you aren't gay and if you try to play grab-ass, it's gonna get real awkward when
I have to snap your fingers in two. #Quote by Tara Sivec

Quanh Nam quotes by Nam Le
#6. The river was behind him. The wind was full of acid. In the slow float of light I looked away, down at the river. On the brink of freezing, it gleamed in large, bulging blisters. The water, where it still moved, was black and braided. And it occurred to me then how it took hours, sometimes days, for the surface of a river to freeze over - to hold in its skin the perfect and crystalline world - and how that world could be shattered by a small stone dropped like a single syllable. #Quote by Nam Le
Quanh Nam quotes by Tom Glenn
#7. Post-Traumatic Stress Injury isn't a disease. It's a wound to the soul that never heals. #Quote by Tom Glenn
Quanh Nam quotes by Kristin Hannah
#8. Alaska brings out the best and the worst in a man. Maybe if you'd stayed Outside you never would have become who you are now. I know about 'Nam, and it breaks my heart what you boys went through. But you can't handle the dark, can you? It's nothing to be ashamed of. Most folks can't. Accept it and do what's best for your family. #Quote by Kristin Hannah
Quanh Nam quotes by Nam June Paik

Quanh Nam quotes by Robin Olds
#10. It got more exciting with each war. I mean the planes were going faster than hell when I was flying a Mustang, but by the time I got to Nam, it scared the piss out of a lot of guys just to fly the damn jets at full speed. Let alone do it in combat. #Quote by Robin Olds
Quanh Nam quotes by Kim Yong-nam
#11. The great heart of comrade Kim Jong Il has ceased. #Quote by Kim Yong-nam
Quanh Nam quotes by John F. Kennedy
#12. I dont think that unless a greater effort is made by the Government to win popular support that the war can be won out there. In the final analysis, it is their war. They are the ones who have to win it or lose it. We can help them, we can give them equipment, we can send our men out there as advisers, but they have to win it, the people of Viet-Nam, against the Communists. #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Quanh Nam quotes by Fernando Henrique Cardoso
#13. In my own experience as president of Brazil I observed first hand many of the trends that Nam identifies in this book, but he describes them in a way that is as original as it is delightful to read. All those who have power-or want it-should read this book. #Quote by Fernando Henrique Cardoso
Quanh Nam quotes by Slavoj Zizek
#14. There is a wonderful expression in Persian, war nam nihadan, which means to murder somebody, bury his body, then grow flowers over the body to conceal it #Quote by Slavoj Zizek
Quanh Nam quotes by Nam June Paik
#15. An artist should always bite the hand that feeds him - but not too hard. #Quote by Nam June Paik
Quanh Nam quotes by Horace
#16. Shun the inquisitive person, for he is also a talker.
[Lat., Percunctatorem fugito, nam garrulus idem est.] #Quote by Horace
Quanh Nam quotes by Neal Stephenson
#17. A speech with magical force. Nowadays, people don't believe in these kinds of things. Except in the Metaverse, that is, where magic is possible. The Metaverse is a fictional structure made out of code. And code is just a form of speech - the form that computers understand. The Metaverse in its entirety could be considered a single vast nam-shub, enacting itself on L. Bob Rife's fiber-optic network. #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Quanh Nam quotes by Juvenal
#18. For whoever meditates a crime is guilty of the deed.
[Lat., Nam scelus intra se tacitum qui cogitat ullum,
Facti crimen habet.] #Quote by Juvenal

Quanh Nam quotes by Horace
#21. Too indolent to bear the toil of writing; I mean of writing well; I say nothing about quantity.
[Lat., Piger scribendi ferre laborem;
Scribendi recte, nam ut multum nil moror.] #Quote by Horace
Quanh Nam quotes by Jason Medina
#22. The '60s were a very turbulent time for colored people. Being away at war was a chance for them to escape the racial bullshit for a while. It was a shame it came down to that kind of choice.
Don't get me wrong. There were plenty of guys, who tried to bring that racial crap over there with them. However, when the shit hits the fan, you don't give a damn about who's standing next to you, saving your ass. You certainly don't care what color his skin is or what language he speaks. All that matters to you is that he is an American G.I. Government Issued, baby! #Quote by Jason Medina
Quanh Nam quotes by Nam June Paik
#23. The future is now. #Quote by Nam June Paik
Quanh Nam quotes by David Lodge
#24. It was the excitement, the richness of the whole experience, the mixture of pleasure and danger and freedom and the sun. You know, when we came back here, for a long while I still went on living in Euphoria inside my head. Outwardly I returned to my old routine. I got up in the morning, put on a tweed suit, read the Guardian over breakfast, walked into the University, gave the same old tutorials on the same old texts... and all the while I was leading a completely different life inside my head. Inside my head, I had decided not to come back to England, so I was waking up in Plotinus, sitting in the sun in my happi-coat, looking out over the Bay, putting on Levis and a sports shirt, reading the Euphoric Times over breakfast, and wondering what would happen today, would there be a protest, a demonstration, would my class have to fight their way through teargas and picket lines or should we meet off-campus in somebody's apartment, sitting on the floor surrounded by posters and leaflets and paperbacks about encounter groups and avant garde theatre and Viet Nam. #Quote by David Lodge
Quanh Nam quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#25. I asked this heroic pet lover how it felt to have died for a schnauzer named Teddy. Salvador Biagiani was philosophical. He said it sure beat dying for absolutely nothing in the Viet Nam War. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Quanh Nam quotes by Nam Le
#26. I write under not only the presumption that everything I write is deeply conditioned by everything I've already written, but that everything I write changes, retroactively, all those things I've already written. #Quote by Nam Le
Quanh Nam quotes by Michelle J. Sorensen
#27. As in other Buddhist Tantric techniques, recommended preliminaries for these practices include developing skill at both calm-abiding (zhi gnas; śamatha) and insight meditation (lhag mthong; vipaśyanā). As in earlier Buddhist teachings, many Chöd dehadāna practices emphasize renunciation, purification, and self-transformation through the accumulation of merit and the exhaustion of demerit. Rather than suggesting that one must wait to accumulate adequate merit before offering the gift of the body, however, Chöd provides the opportunity for immediately efficacious offering of the body through techniques of visualization. Using a technique which echoes the traditional Buddhist teaching of the of the mind-made body (manomayākāya), the practitioner engages in visualizations which allow her to experience the non-duality of agent and object as she offers her body.

The process of giving the body as a means of attainment is commonly articulated in Chöd practice texts (sgrub pa; sādhana). These practice texts exhibit the framework of mature Tantra sādhana, including the stages of generating bodhicitta, going for refuge, meditating on the four immeasurables, and making the eight-limbed offering. Generally speaking, the main section of a developed Chöd sādhana has three components. The first two - a transference of consciousness (nam mkha' sgo 'byed) practice, and a body maṇḍala (lus dkyil) practice - have distinctly purifying purposes. The Chöd transference of consciousness pr #Quote by Michelle J. Sorensen
Quanh Nam quotes by David Batstone
#28. My greatest inspiration has to be a Thai lady called Kru Nam, 40, she is from an upper middle class family and degree educated who has chosen to dedicated her life to rescuing children. I met her just after she rescued 27 children, since then she has continued to rescue more children without money, influence and making connections. #Quote by David Batstone
Quanh Nam quotes by Denise Levertov
#29. 1) Did the people of Viet Nam
use lanterns of stone?
2) Did they hold ceremonies
to reverence the opening of buds?
3) Were they inclined to quiet laughter?
4) Did they use bone and ivory,
jade and silver, for ornament?
5) Had they an epic poem?
6) Did they distinguish between speech and singing?

1) Sir, their light hearts turned to stone.
It is not remembered whether in gardens
stone lanterns illumined pleasant ways.
2) Perhaps they gathered once to delight in blossom,
but after the children were killed
there were no more buds.
3) Sir, laughter is bitter to the burned mouth.
4) A dream ago, perhaps. Ornament is for joy.
All the bones were charred.
5) It is not remembered. Remember,
most were peasants; their life
was in rice and bamboo.
When peaceful clouds were reflected in the paddies
and the water buffalo stepped surely along terraces,
maybe fathers told their sons old tales.
When bombs smashed those mirrors
there was time only to scream.
6) There is an echo yet
of their speech which was like a song.
It was reported their singing resembled
the flight of moths in moonlight.
Who can say? It is silent now. #Quote by Denise Levertov
Quanh Nam quotes by Martin Windrow
#30. For 56 days they had given everything, endured everything; they had achieved the impossible, not once but again and again. They deserved to win; and if they were now being robbed of victory, then the real thieves weren't the People's Army, the 'rats of the Nam Youm', or anyone else in the filth of this last valley, but men who slept between clean sheets far away. #Quote by Martin Windrow
Quanh Nam quotes by Tim O'Brien
#31. Anyways, the guys try to be cool. They just lie there and groove, but after a while they start hearing - you won't believe this - they hear chamber music. They hear violins and cellos. They hear this terrific mama-san soprano. Then after a while they hear gook opera and and a glee club and the Haiphong Boys Choir and a barbershop quartet and and all kinds of wierd chanting and Buddha-Buddha stuff. All the whole time, in the background, there's stil that cocktail party going on. All these different voices. Not human voices, though. Because it's the mountains. Follow me? The rock, it's TALKING. And the fog, too, and the grass and the goddamn mongooses. Everything talks. The trees talk politics, the monnkeys talk religion. The whole country. Vietnam. The place talks. It talks. Understand? Nam - it truly TALKS. #Quote by Tim O'Brien
Quanh Nam quotes by Daniel Keys Moran
#32. Before Watergate and Viet Nam, the American public, as a whole, believed everything it was told, and since then it doesn't believe anything, and both of those extremes hurt us because they prevent us from recognizing the truth. #Quote by Daniel Keys Moran
Quanh Nam quotes by Viet Thanh Nguyen
#33. What am I dying for? he cried back. I'm dying because this world I'm living in isn't worth dying for! If something is worth dying for, then you've got a reason to live. #Quote by Viet Thanh Nguyen
Quanh Nam quotes by Abraham   Verghese
#34. He wrote in the fly leaf: Nam et ipsa scientia potestas est! "That means 'Knowledge is power!' Oh, I do believe that, Marion. #Quote by Abraham Verghese
Quanh Nam quotes by Nichiren
#35. A mind now clouded by the illusions of the innate darkness of life is like a tarnished mirror, but when polished, it is sure to become like a clear mirror, reflecting the essential nature of phenomena and the true aspect of reality. Arouse deep faith, and diligently polish your mirror day and night. How should you polish it? Only by chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo #Quote by Nichiren
Quanh Nam quotes by Trin Yarborough
#36. Perhaps the main reason America cannot 'get over' its war with Viet Nam is that Americans cannot fit what happened into its earlier myth of itself - that we had always been 'the good guys,' conquering injustice around the world. The tens of thousands of mistreated half-American children born in Viet Nam are one untidy fact we have been unable to fit into that myth. #Quote by Trin Yarborough
Quanh Nam quotes by Plautus
#37. Who wishes to give himself an abundance of business let him equip these two things, a ship and a woman. For no two things involve more business, if you have begun to fit them out. Nor are these two things ever sufficiently adorned, nor is any excess of adornment enough for them.
[Lat., Negotii sibi qui volet vim parare,
Navem et mulierem, haec duo comparato.
Nam nullae magis res duae plus negotii
Habent, forte si occeperis exornare.
Neque unquam satis hae duae res ornantur,
Neque eis ulla ornandi satis satietas est.] #Quote by Plautus
Quanh Nam quotes by Heesung Nam
#38. I went. I fought. I earned! - Weed #Quote by Heesung Nam
Quanh Nam quotes by William E. Peterson
#39. You haven't lived a full life until you have been in a very tough situation when you thought you were going to die. War does that to you. #Quote by William E. Peterson
Quanh Nam quotes by Billy O'Connor
#40. In Nam, the jungle's heat was heavy, and like a spoiled overweight child, it insisted on being carried everywhere. #Quote by Billy O'Connor
Quanh Nam quotes by Reduced Shakespeare Company
#41. Today's theater-goer must live in dread of walking into a theater and discovering that some classic work has been given a modernized, socially relevant setting. Oedipus gouges his eyes with a spoon at a 1950's malt shop; Macbeth napalms Banquo in Viet Nam, Julius Caesar dies in Dallas in 1963. More and more, American theater is coming to resemble a season of Quantum Leap. #Quote by Reduced Shakespeare Company
Quanh Nam quotes by Nam Le
#42. The thing is not to write what no one else has written but to write what only you could have written.'
I found this fragment in my old notebooks. The person who wrote that couldn't have known what would happen: how a voice hollows how words you once loved can wither on a page. #Quote by Nam Le
Quanh Nam quotes by Daniel J. Levitin
#43. Former secretary of state George Shultz, reflecting on forty years of United States foreign policy from 1970 to the present, said, When I think about all the money we spent on bombs and munitions, and our failures in Viet Nam, Iraq, Afghanistan and other places around the world . . . Instead of advancing our agenda using force, we should have instead built schools and hospitals in these countries, improving the lives of their children. By now, those children would have grown into positions of influence, and they would be grateful to us instead of hating us. #Quote by Daniel J. Levitin
Quanh Nam quotes by Cho Nam-Joo
#44. Do laws and institutions change values, or do values drive laws and institutions? #Quote by Cho Nam-Joo
Quanh Nam quotes by Dan Groat
#45. My name Quan. Quan Nguyen. This Kim-Ly, wife. We next door. Do nails. We with Mr. Blaylock. He fight, we fight. We come here from Viet Nam. This good country, but sometimes, good people in good country have to fight. #Quote by Dan Groat
Quanh Nam quotes by Ptr. Shin Nam Sun
#46. When we are prayerless we are powerless. #Quote by Ptr. Shin Nam Sun
Quanh Nam quotes by Laura J. Burns
#47. Gabriel Squeezed His Eyes Shut. In the distance He Heard shay Screaming His Nam. What Had he done.?
The answer Slammed Into His Mind. He Had Fallen in Love with Her. It had Clouded His Judgment.
He LOVED Her, HEART, SOUL, And BODY. And He Had Sentenced Her To Death. #Quote by Laura J. Burns
Quanh Nam quotes by Sophia Nam
#48. If you never love you never hurt
If you never hurt you've never lived.
Love in life and embrace all the pains that come with it. #Quote by Sophia Nam
Quanh Nam quotes by Brian Posehn
#49. Grew up in a small town where there was only one crazy guy. He didn't even go insane doing anything good, like going to 'Nam or having an extended acid trip. Turns out - legend has it - he just had some bad cheese. #Quote by Brian Posehn
