"I don't like quintessential certitude."
Born: August 11, 1897
Die: February 4, 1970
...in a time lacking in truth and certainty and filled with anguish and despair, no woman should be shamefaced in attempting to give back to the world, through her work, a portion of its lost heart.
At midnight tears Run into your ears.
I don't like quintessential certitude.
Up from the bronze, I saw Water without a flaw Rush to its rest in air Reach to its rest, and fall.
I cannot believe that the inscrutable universe turns on an axis of suffering; surely the strange beauty of the world must somewhere rest on pure joy!
No more pronouncements on lousy verse. No more hidden competition. No more struggling not to be a square.
Perhaps this very instant is your time.
Because language is the carrier of ideas, it is easy to believe that it should be very little else than such a carrier.
Stupidity always accompanies evil. Or evil, stupidity.
Innocence of heart and violence of feeling are necessary in any kind of superior achievement: The arts cannot exist without them.
But childhood prolonged, cannot remain a fairyland. It becomes a hell.
The intellectual is a middle-class product; if he is not born into the class he must soon insert himself into it, in order to exist. He is the fine nervous flower of the bourgeoisie.
Your work is carved out of agony as a statue is carved out of marble.
Women have no wilderness in them They are provident instead Content in the tight hot cell of their hearts To eat dusty bread.
I'll lie here and learn How, over their ground, Trees make a long shadow And a light sound.
True revolutions in art restore more than they destroy.
O remember In your narrowing dark hours That more things move Than blood in the heart.
The Initial Mystery that attends any journey is: how did the traveler reach his starting point in the first place?
I hope that one or two immortal lyrics will come out of all this tumbling around.
I dont enjoy traveling in America. I dont like the food, the cars. It is not exotic enough. It all tastes a bit like airline food.
I dont feel like I would be a good mentor. I dont know what I have to offer in that respect. I do this for pretty selfish reasons.
There are people who actually like programming. I dont understand why they like programming.
I dont like being told someones interpretation of something that I do.
When I look at pictures when I was younger, I do the quintessential cringe.
I dont like quotes. You can quote me on that.
firestar: jayfeather what does mallow look like? jayfeather: i dont know, ive never seen any
People are always telling me that i'm not like other girls...that i dont dress like other girls...that i dont act like other girls. But i'm my OWN person...i go to the beat of my own drum.
I certainly dont feel like Ive been the victim of typecasting.
I like girls that are chilled out, that dont really care, that are just cool
I think most people dont like others who, without a voice of their own, emulate the other. I certainly dont want anybody just to pick up my thoughts and hand them back to me.
I dont wear cologne. I do occasionally, but anytime I take a shower, I just put on deodorant. Thats basically what I smell like.
Men like me because I dont wear a brassiere. Women like me because I dont look like a girl who would steal a husband. At least not for long.
I believe that the quintessential task of every painter in any time has been to concentrate on the essential.
People dont want to talk about death, just like they dont want to talk about computer security. Maybe I should have named my workstation Fear. People are so motivated by fear.
I dont understand why my fans cry when they see me. Do I make you sad? No, right? So smile, I like that!
Well. Like I said, I dont want to fight anymore. I dont want us to hate each other. And ... well ... I squeezed my eyes shut and then opened them. No matter how I fee about us ... I want you to be happy
I live for a woman who scratches, just make sure to keep it on the back, baby, I dont like scars." ~Otto Carvalletti
I didn't know that, you take your coffee seriously, dont you?' 'Every morning, I run to the coffeemaker like a soldier returning to a lost love after the war.
Unique and different is the new generation of beautiful… You dont have to be like everybody else. In fact I don’t think you should.
