Quote by Lucy Alibar
It absolutely helped - to write the father in both 'Juicy' and 'Beasts,' I had to see the whole story from his point of view. All of a sudden I understood more of what my own father must be going through - the fear, the frustration, the anger... the hope that he'll leave a legacy.
This quote highlights the impact of writing from a different perspective. The speaker mentions that by portraying a father character in their works 'Juicy' and 'Beasts,' they gained a deeper understanding of their own father's experiences and emotions. Writing from the father's point of view allowed them to empathize with fear, frustration, anger, and the desire to leave a lasting legacy. This quote acknowledges how storytelling can foster empathy and provide insights into the complexity of parental roles and emotions.
A man who has the courage of his platitudes is always a successful man. The instructed man is ashamed to pronounce in an orphic manner what everybody knows, and because he is silent people think he is making fun of them. They like a man who expresses their own superficial thoughts in a manner that appears to be profound. This enables them to feel that they are themselves profound.
Of all the major religions, or lack thereof, the atheist's is one of the best pretenders: his foundation for all existences, as well as moral behaviors for the permanent good of mankind, begins at science but ends at himself, the Napoleon complex of both intelligence and imagination. On the other hand the anti-theist wouldn't survive without a deity beyond himself to hunt. He doesn't pretend, he simply nullifies his own position.
