Smith , Feeling infatuated quotes

You can see it happening if you read the Bloomsbury biographies. It was a reaction to a great extent against Victorianism. There was so much that was repressive and stuffy. Victorian buildings were associated with it, and they were regarded as very ugly. Even when they weren’t ugly, people made them ugly. They were painted hideously.” ~ Jane Jacobs

If this is a devil’s world, we must be devils also; why else should we be here? “Oh, the people of the world are so selfish!” True enough; but why should we be found in that company, if we be better? Just think of that.” ~ Swami Vivekananda

A little doll that will make them feel even bigger and stronger.” ~ Rainbow Rowell

  42. “When I was in high school, I was in a special math class. I was infatuated with physics, particularly nuclear physics, Einstein, and the Big Bang. I read a lot about black holes.

It didn’t seem like hard work when I was a kid, so I enrolled in this class.” ~ Aleksandar Hemon”Director Park always talked to me about her in a very innocent way, that the story was of her coming of age and her sexual awakening and her going from girl to woman and that she had the same desires and hopes as other young people in terms of being very infatuated, which comes in the form of her uncle, which is very unconventional.” ~ Mia Wasikowska

  56. “Knowledge of Rome must be physical, sweated into the system, worked up into the brain through the thinning shoe-leather. … When it comes to knowing, the senses are more honest than the intelligence. Nothing is more real than the first wall you lean up against sobbing with exhaustion.

Seeing is pleasure, but not knowledge.” ~ Elizabeth Bowen

For Freud, religion was a psychological need projected onto culture, the child’s feeling of helplessness surviving in adults, to be analyzed rather than admired.” ~ Peter Gay
