Alan Moore: My experience...

My experience of life is that it is not divided up into genres; it`s a horrifying, romantic, tragic, comical, science-fiction cowboy detective novel. You know, with a bit of pornography if you`re lucky.
/Alan Moore/

Mahatma Gandhi: Where there...

Where there is love there is life.

Stefan Collini: In trying...

In trying to justify the humanities, as in trying to live a life, what may turn out to matter most is holding one`s nerve.

Jo Leigh: That`s what...

That`s what got her, of course. That everyone thought it so unbelievable that she could possibly attract a man like him. It shouldn`t upset her because it was true. She couldn`t. Not in this world, in this lifetime. Yet she didn`t appreciated everyone else acting as if they were the most improbable twosome since Quasimodo hit on Esmeralda.

Ann Voskamp: They say...

They say time is money, but that`s not true. Time is life. And if I want the fullest life, I need to find fullest time... the busyness of your life leaving little room for the source of your life...God gives us time. And who has time for God?Which makes no sense.

Dean Ray Koontz: When I...

When I was no longer of the world, I would miss its extravagant beauty. I would miss the complex and charming layers of subterfuge by which the truth of the world`s mysteries were withheld from us even as we were tantalized and enchanted by them. I would miss the kindness of good people who were compassionate when so many were pitiless, who made their way through so much corruption without being corrupted themselves, who eschewed envy in a world of envy, who eschewed greed in a world of greed, who valued truth and could not be drowned in a sea of lies, for they shone and, by the light they cast, they warmed me all my life.
/Dean Ray Koontz/

Gabriel Chevallier: I carry...

I carry my liberty with me. It is in my thoughts, in my head. Shakespeare is one of my countries, Goethe another. You can change that badge that I wear, but you can`t change the way I think. It is through my intellect that I can escape the roles, intrusions, and obligations with which every civilisation, every community would burden me. I make myself my own homeland through my affinities, my choices, my ideas, and no one can take it away from me ? I may even be able to enlarge it. I don`t spend my life in the company of crowds but individuals. If I could pick fifty individuals from each nation, then perhaps I could put together a society I?d be happy with. My first possession is myself; better to sent it into exile than to lose it, to change a few habits rather than terminate my role as a human being. We only have one homeland: the world.
/Gabriel Chevallier/

Grief and tragedy and hatred are only for a time. Goodness, remembrance and love have no end, and the Lord of life holds all who die and all who mourn.

Urgency fills our life with stress and anxiety. but slowness, simplicity, and love fill our life with beauty and happiness.

That`s one of the remarkable things about life. It`s never so bad that it can`t get worse.

Marie Brennan: Your people...

Your people understand the forest: how the animals behave, where to find them, and so on. I want something similar?but instead of the forest as a whole, I want to understand dragons. They are not only here, you know; there are dragons in the savannah?? Mekeesawa nodded. ?Well, there are more than that, all over the world. They live in the mountains and on the plains and maybe even in the ocean. I want to know them as you know the creatures of this forest.??But why?? Mekeesawa asked. His eyes were still merry with laughter, but his question was serious. ?You don`t live in all those places.?With the amount of time I have spent traveling in my life, one might make the argument that I do live in all those places, if only temporarily. But Mekeesawa?s point was a good one, and not easily dismissed. The Moulish understood the creatures of the Green Hell because their survival depended on it; my survival did not depend on my traveling the globe to find dragons. (Indeed, it has on more than one occasion nearly been detrimental to my life expectancy.) How could I answer him?Thinking back on the matter now, it is possible my only true answer to that question is now in its second volume, with more to come. These memoirs are not only an accounting of my life; they are an accounting *for* it.
