Quote by Orson Scott Card
Whenever I hear you saying, rise and shine, rise and shine, it makes me think how lucky dead people are!
This quote is a humorous take on the phrase "rise and shine." The speaker sarcastically reflects on the repetitive and sometimes annoying nature of being told to "rise and shine" every morning. The comment about dead people being lucky implies that they no longer have to go through the everyday struggles of waking up early and facing the challenges of life. It is a lighthearted remark meant to lighten the mood and bring humor to the concept of waking up.
For there is not a single human being, not even the primitive Negro, not even the idiot, who is so conveniently simple that his being can be explained as the sum of two or three principal elements; and to explain so complex a man as Harry by the artless division into wolf and man is a hopelessly childish attempt. Harry consists of a hundred or a thousand selves, not of two. His life oscillates, as everyone's does, not merely between two poles, such as the body and the spirit, the saint and the sinner, but between thousand and thousands.
