Yes. Now you know. Now you know. That's what it was to be alive, to move about in a cloud of ignorance, to go up and down trampling on the feelings of those-- of those about you, to spend and waste time as if you had a million years, to be always at the mercy of one self-centered passion or another. Now you know, that's the 'happy' existence you wanted to go back to. Ignorance and blindness.
~ Thornton Wilder (April 17, 1897 - December 07, 1975)
Quotes on: Life
Waves: My quotes about life
For me chemistry represented an indefinite cloud of future potentialities which enveloped my life to come in black volutes torn by fiery flashes, like those which had hidden Mount Sinai. Like Moses, from that cloud I expected my law, the principle of order in me, around me, and in the world. I would watch the buds swell in spring, the mica glint in the granite, my own hands, and I would say to myself: ''I will understand this, too, I will understand everything.''
~ Primo Levi (July 31, 1919 - April 11, 1987)
More Quotes with cloud-nine
You know what, I'm very interested in acting, but right now I'm busy promoting my album and going on tour because that's my first love, but I'm very interested in doing some parts that may come my way. I've been offered a few movie parts so far, but I have to really concentrate on singing. But it's something I'm interested in doing eventually. I haven't been offered a part that truly inspires me to take time off, though.
~ Christina Aguilera (December 18, 1980 - )
Quotes on: Acting
In order for a team, an ordinary team, to win the World Series - by ordinary team, that's everybody other than the Yankees - all sorts of things have to happen, the stars really have to line up in the right order. You have to have a lot of breaks, and we got them. I can think of a zillion breaks that we got in the postseason.
~ Jerry Reinsdorf (February 25, 1936 - )
