A PORTRAIT A DAY KEEPS MYSELF SANE

\

The highest point a man can obtain is not Knowledge, or Virtue, or Goodness, or Victory, but something even greater, more heroic and more despairing: Sacred Awe!

 Nikos Kazantakis

Gubble gubble gubble I’m a mubble in a pubble. I can play I’m anything that’s anything. That’s MY way.

Ruth Krauss

We are all imprisoned by the dictionary. We choose out of that vast, paper-walled prison our convicts, the little black printed words, when in truth we need fresh sounds to utter, new enfranchised noises which would produce a new effect.

Mervyn Peake

The truth is, our civilization is not Christian; it is a tragic compound of great ideal and fearful practice, of loving charity and fearful clutching of possessions.

Alan Paton

Sloth is the natural result of unrewarded hard work among the poor, reason enough for them to be prickly.

Lao She

Thus, as far as he is a scientific man, as far as he knows anything, he is a materialist; outside his science, in spheres about which he knows nothing, he translates his ignorance into Greek and calls it agnosticism.

Friedrich Engels

The working class positively benefited from Hitler`s rule, under which the standard of living was raised till it became the highest in Europe.

Hugh Trevor-Roper

I have learned that if you must leave a place that you have lived in and loved and where all your yesteryears are buried deep, leave it any way except a slow way, leave it the fastest way you can. Never turn back and never believe that an hour you remember is a better hour because it is dead. Passed years seem safe ones, vanquished ones, while the future lives in a cloud, formidable from a distance.

Beryl Markham

What matters in life is not what happens to you but what you remember and how you remember it.

Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
