Time is flying never to return.
I do not know why there is this difference, but I am sure that God keeps no one waiting unless He sees that it is good for him to wait. When you do enter your room, you will find that the long wait has done you some kind of good which you would not have had otherwise. But you must regard it as waiting, not as camping. You must keep on praying for light: and of course, even in the hall, you must begin trying to obey the rules which are common to the whole house. And above all you must be asking which door is the true one; not which pleases you best by its paint and paneling.
Women's lib, Frannie had decided, was nothing more nor less than an outgrowth of the technological society. Women were at the mercy of their bodies. They were smaller. They tended to be weaker. A man couldn't get with child, but a woman could---every four-year-old knows it. And a pregnant woman is a vulnerable human being. Civilization had provided an umbrella of sanity that both sexes could stand beneath.
You experienced pain yesterday and you discovered that it led to pleasure.You experienced it today and found peace.That's why I'm telling you:Don't get used to it,because it's very easy to become habituated:it's a very powerful drug.It's in our daily lives,in our hidden sufferings,in the sacrifices we make,blaming love for the destruction of our dreams.Pain is frightening when it shows its real face, but it's seductive when it comes disguised as sacrifice or se-denial.Or cowardice.However much we may reject it,we human human beings always find a way of being with pain,of flirting with it and making it part of our lives.
Tot a?a cum galbenul este intotdeauna asociat cu lumina, se poate spune ?i c? albastrul aduce cu el ?i un principiu al Ã®ntunericului. Aceast? culoare are un efect special ?i aproape indescriptibil asupra ochiului. Pe scara culorilor este una puternic?, Ã®ns? de partea negativ?, ?i la maximum de puritate este, cum s-ar zice, o nega?ie stimulatoare. Aspectul s?u este deci un fel de contradic?ie Ã®ntre excita?ie ?i calm.
Trzymajcie si? z dala od cz?owieka, ktÃ³ry pracowa? w pocie czo?a nad rozwi?zaniem jakiej? zagadki, rozwi?za? j? i stwierdzi?, ?e nie jest m?drzejszy ni? przedtem - powiada Bokonon. - Przepe?nia go bowiem mordercza pogarda do ludzi, ktÃ³rzy s? rÃ³wnie g?upi jak on, ale nie doszli do swojej g?upoty rÃ³wnie ci??k? prac?.
The Warrior looks at the column of Fear, where he reads: you are about to enter an unknown and dangerous world where all that you have learned up to now will be of no use whatsoever.The Warrior of Light looks at the column of Desire, where he reads: you are about to leave a known world where all the things you always wanted and all that you have fought so hard for are kept.The Warrior smiles, because nothing can frighten him and nothing can hold him. With the confidence of those who know what they want, he opens the door.
It was love, she thought, love that never clutch its object; but, like the love which mathematicians bear their symbols, or poets their phrases, was meant to be spread over the world and become part of human gain. The world by all means should have shared it, could Mr Bankes have said why that woman pleased him so; why the sight of her reading a fairy tale to her boy had upon him precisely the same effect as the solution of a scientific problem.
He who has attained the freedom of reason to any extent cannot, for a long time, regard himself otherwise than as a wanderer on the face of the earth - and not even as a traveler towards a final goal, for there is no such thing. But he certainly wants to observe and keep his eyes open to whatever actually happens in the world; therefore he cannot attach his heart too firmly to anything individual; he must have in himself something wandering that takes pleasure in change and transitoriness.
