The Spectacular Now quotes by Tim Tharp

The Spectacular Now quotes by Anthony Bourdain
#4. There are chefs who are spectacular technicians, and often their food is worth eating once or twice, but if there's no heart in it, if there's no personality in it, it's not something you want to go back for. But heart without any skill at all? All the heart in the world ain't gonna help you if you can't peel an onion, or if you don't understand how to apply heat properly. A well-done steak is a well-done steak. #Quote by Anthony Bourdain
The Spectacular Now quotes by Anne Michaels
#5. The winter street is a salt cave. The snow has stopped falling and it's very cold. The cold is spectacular, penetrating. The street has been silenced, a theatre of whiteness, drifts like frozen waves. Crystals glisten under the streetlights. #Quote by Anne Michaels
The Spectacular Now quotes by Erle Stanley Gardner
#6. We're a dramatic people," Perry Mason said slowly. "We're not like the English. The English want dignity and order. We want the dramatic and the spectacular. It's a national craving. We're geared to a rapid rate of thought. We want to have things move in a spectacular manner. #Quote by Erle Stanley Gardner
The Spectacular Now quotes by Haruki Murakami
#7. Tengo's lectures took on uncommon warmth, and the students found themselves swept up in his eloquence. He taught them how to practically and effectively solve mathematical problems while simultaneously presenting a spectacular display of the romance concealed in the questions it posed. Tengo saw admiration in the eyes of several of his female students, and he realized that he was seducing these seventeen- or eighteen-year-olds through mathematics. His eloquence was a kind of intellectual foreplay. Mathematical functions stroked their backs; theorems sent warm breath into their ears. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
The Spectacular Now quotes by Ruth Park
#8. In a still hot morning, the tide went out and didn't come back in. This was not a spectacular event. The sea did not roll up like a scroll, like the sky in Revelations. It quietly withdrew. #Quote by Ruth Park
The Spectacular Now quotes by John Negroponte
#9. I think there, there also had been just before I got to Honduras a rather spectacular capture of an arms shipment that from Nicaragua across Honduran test, territory destined for El Salvador and I think that some of that equipment had been also to Cuba and the Soviet bloc. #Quote by John Negroponte
The Spectacular Now quotes by Ruth Ozeki
#10. Once in a while a story is spectacular enough to break through and attract media attention, but the swell quickly subsides into the general glut of bad news over which we, as citizens, have so little control. #Quote by Ruth Ozeki
The Spectacular Now quotes by Cael Sanderson
#11. The most spectacular UFO incident in Indonesia occurred when during the height of President Sukarno's confrontation against Malaysia, UFOs penetrated a well-defended area in Java for two weeks at a stretch, and each time were welcomed with perhaps the heaviest anti-aircraft barrage in history. #Quote by Cael Sanderson
The Spectacular Now quotes by Gene Edward Veith Jr.
#12. Luther goes so far as to say that vocation is a mask of God. That is, God hides Himself in the workplace, the family, the Church, and the seemingly secular society. To speak of God being hidden is a way of describing His presence, as when a child hiding in the room is there, just not seen. To realize that the mundane activities that take up most of our lives - going to work, taking the kids to soccer practice, picking up a few things at the store, going to church - are hiding-places for God can be a revelation in itself. Most people seek God in mystical experiences, spectacular miracles, and extraordinary acts they have to do. To find Him in vocation brings Him, literally, down to earth, makes us see how close He really is to us, and transfigures everyday life. #Quote by Gene Edward Veith Jr.
The Spectacular Now quotes by Helen Sharman
#13. Because we were orbiting the earth faster than earth spins on its axis, we went around the earth 16 times a day, an earth day, which meant 16 periods of lightness and 16 periods of darkness in 24 hours. Every so often you'd look towards the earth, and often you could see lightness and darkness together, and dawn and sunset were spectacular. #Quote by Helen Sharman
The Spectacular Now quotes by Annie Dillard
#14. The point of going somewhere like the Napo River in Ecuador is not to see the most spectacular anything. It is simply to see what is there. #Quote by Annie Dillard
The Spectacular Now quotes by Alain Badiou
#15. These latter institutions [the civil service, trade unions, media of all kinds], notably of course television, but more subtly the written press, are quite spectacular powers of unreason and ignorance. #Quote by Alain Badiou
The Spectacular Now quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#16. The most spectacular moment of my daily life is connection with a stranger by communication. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
The Spectacular Now quotes by Alain De Botton
#17. So this is what it is to be a failure. The chief characteristic may be silence: the phone doesn't ring, he isn't asked out, nothing new happens. For must of his adult life he has conceived of failure in the form of a spectacular catastrophe, only to recognize, at last, that it has in fact crept up on him imperceptibly, through cowardly inaction. #Quote by Alain De Botton
The Spectacular Now quotes by J.A. Huss
#18. Shit, who the hell am I kidding? Ronin Flynn's hands on my ass feel spectacular. #Quote by J.A. Huss
The Spectacular Now quotes by Alice LaPlante
#19. When thinking over one's life, it's the extreme moments that stand out. The peaks and the valleys. He was one of the highest peaks. In some ways looming larger than James. If James was a central mountain in the landscape of my life, then this other was a pinnacle of a different sort. Higher, sharper. You couldn't build upon its fragile precipices. But the view was spectacular. #Quote by Alice LaPlante
The Spectacular Now quotes by Eleanor Holmes Norton
#20. The spread of feminism is the most spectacular, extraordinary phenomenon in the last twenty years, and I believe we will accomplish our goals in a million different ways. #Quote by Eleanor Holmes Norton
The Spectacular Now quotes by Graham Joyce
#21. Our literary culture is marinated in deep traditions of the fantastic and the supernatural, and we export those rich qualities in films and books on a spectacular industrial scale. #Quote by Graham Joyce
The Spectacular Now quotes by Ann Voskamp
#22. But the irony: Don't I often want to desperately wriggle free of the confines of a small life? Yet when I stand before immensity that heightens my smallness--I have never felt sadness. Only burgeoning wonder. Is it because within each frame of finite flesh lies the likeness of infinite God? In all things large and spectacular, we recognize glimpses of home and the call to our own deeper chemistry. Do we writhe to peel out of our smallness and into the big life because that fits our inborn God-image? #Quote by Ann Voskamp
The Spectacular Now quotes by McKenzie Wark
#23. In Japan itself it seemed as if theory had been absorbed the same way Japanese media culture absorbed everything else - by turning it into a spectacular subcultural style. #Quote by McKenzie Wark
The Spectacular Now quotes by Georges Perec
#24. What speaks to us, seemingly, is always the big event, the untoward, the extra-ordinary: the front-page splash, the banner headlines....Behind the event there is a scandal, a fissure, a danger, as if life reveals itself only by way of the spectacular, as if what speaks, what is significant, is always abnormal. [But] how should we take account of, question, describe what happens everyday and recurs everyday: the banal, the quotidian, the obvious, the common, the ordinary, the infra-ordinary, the background noise, the habitual? (209-210) #Quote by Georges Perec
The Spectacular Now quotes by Steven Adler
#25. I'm not a big metal fan. I love and respect the musicianship, which is spectacular. #Quote by Steven Adler
The Spectacular Now quotes by Huston Smith
#26. Detachment from the finite self or attachment to the whole of things - we can state the phenomenon either positively or negatively. When it occurs, life is lifted above the possibility of frustration and above ennui - the third threat to joy - as well, for the cosmic drama is too spectacular to permit boredom in the face of such vivid identification. #Quote by Huston Smith
The Spectacular Now quotes by Roland Barthes
#27. Only I know what my road has been for the last year and a half: the economy of this motionless and anything but spectacular mourning that has kept me unceasingly separate by its demands; a separation that I have ultimately always projected to bring to a close by a book--Stubbornness, secrecy. #Quote by Roland Barthes
The Spectacular Now quotes by Michael Chabon
#28. Landsman and Bina were married to each other for twelve years and together for five before that. Each was the other's first lover, first betrayer, first refuge, first roommate, first audience, first person to turn to when something
even the marriage itself
went wrong. For half their lives they tangled their histories, bodies, phobias, theories, recipes, libraries, record collections. They mounted spectacular arguments, nose-to-nose, hands flying, spittle flying, throwing things, kicking things, breaking things, rolling around on the ground grabbing up fistfuls of each other's hair. The next day he would bear the red moons of Bina's nails in his cheeks and on the meat of his chest, and she wore his purple fingerprints like an armlet. #Quote by Michael Chabon
The Spectacular Now quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#29. The miracle is that the brilliance of the miraculous can live in the blandness of the mundane. The greater miracle is that we have enough brilliance in our own blandness to see it. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
The Spectacular Now quotes by Sally Ride
#30. The view of Earth is spectacular. #Quote by Sally Ride
The Spectacular Now quotes by Alexander Trocchi
#31. It provides the police with something to do, and as junkies and potheads are relatively easy to apprehend because they have to take so many chances to get hold of their drugs, a heroic police can make spectacular arrests, lawyers can do a brisk business, judges can make speeches, the big pedlars can make a fortune, the tabloids can sell millions of copies. John Citizen can sit back feeling exonerated and watch evil get its deserts. That's the junk scene, man. Everyone gets something out of it except the junkie. If he's lucky he can creep round the corner and get a fix. But it wasn't the junk that made him creep. #Quote by Alexander Trocchi
The Spectacular Now quotes by George Orwell
#32. Housman would not have appealed so deeply to the people who were young in 1920 if it had not been for another strain in him, and that was his blasphemous, antinomian, "cynical" strain. The fight that always occurs between the generations was exceptionally bitter at the end of the Great War; this was partly due to the war itself, and partly it was an indirect result of the Russian Revolution, but an intellectual struggle was in any case due at about that date. Owing probably to the ease and security of life in England, which even the war hardly disturbed, many people whose ideas were formed in the 'eighties or earlier had carried them quite unmodified into the nineteen-twenties. Meanwhile, so far as the younger generation was concerned, the official beliefs were dissolving like sand-castles. The slump in religious belief, for instance, was spectacular. For several years the old - young antagonism took on a quality of real hatred. What was left of the war generation had crept out of the massacre to find their elders still bellowing the slogans of 1914, and a slightly younger generation of boys were writhing under dirty-minded celibate schoolmasters. It was to these that Housman appealed, with his implied sexual revolt and his personal grievance against God. He was patriotic, it was true, but in a harmless old-fashioned way, to the tune of red coats and "God save the Queen" rather than steel helmets and "Hang the Kaiser." And he was satisfyingly anti-Christian - he stood for a k #Quote by George Orwell
The Spectacular Now quotes by J.J. Abrams
#33. When you work on something that combines both the spectacular and the relatable, the hyperreal and the real, it suddenly can become supernatural. The hypothetical and the theoretical can become literal. #Quote by J.J. Abrams
The Spectacular Now quotes by Tana French
#34. Our entire society is based on discontent. People wanting more and more and more. Being constantly dissatisfied with their homes, their bodies, their décor, their clothes, everything – taking it for granted that that's the whole point of life. Never to be satisfied. If you are perfectly happy with what you got, especially if what you got isn't even all that spectacular then you're dangerous. You're breaking all the rules. You're undermining the sacred economy. You're challenging every assumption that society is built on. #Quote by Tana French
The Spectacular Now quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#35. It is spectacular to watch an erupting volcano; but it is even much more spectacular to watch the rise of a newly exploding revolutionary idea! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
The Spectacular Now quotes by Madeleine L'Engle
#36. Once Christianity became acceptable, and even mandatory, it lost the early poverty of spirit which sustained it when any group gathered together for bread and wine in his Name had to have one ear open for the knock on the door. But don't we ever have opportunities for poverty of spirit, we middle-class, comfortable Americans? We do, though what is asked of us is not as spectacular or as dangerous as what was asked of the first Christians. But it is our response to the small things which conditions our response to the large. If I am unable to be poor in spirit in the small tests, I will be equally unable in the great. There #Quote by Madeleine L'Engle
The Spectacular Now quotes by Emile Argand
#37. How many times did the sun shine, how many times did the wind howl over the desolate tundras, over the bleak immensity of the Siberian taigas, over the brown deserts where the Earth's salt shines, over the high peaks capped with silver, over the shivering jungles, over the undulating forests of the tropics! Day after day, through infinite time, the scenery has changed in imperceptible features. Let us smile at the illusion of eternity that appears in these things, and while so many temporary aspects fade away, let us listen to the ancient hymn, the spectacular song of the seas, that has saluted so many chains rising to the light. #Quote by Emile Argand
The Spectacular Now quotes by David Cameron
#38. 2012 has been an extraordinary year for our country. We cheered our Queen to the rafters with the Jubilee, showed the world what we're made of by staging the most spectacular Olympic and Paralympic Games ever and - let's not forget - punched way above our weight in the medals table. #Quote by David Cameron
The Spectacular Now quotes by Robert Plant
#39. There's so much of this beautiful planet that is still actually spectacular and stimulating. There are so many amazing people that you meet along the way. #Quote by Robert Plant
The Spectacular Now quotes by Raymond C. Hoiles
#40. Private enterprise is not as spectacular nor as easy to see as the socialist way of temporarily diffusing poverty by eating up the seed corn - the tools - which will increase poverty in the long run. #Quote by Raymond C. Hoiles
