Best 2013 quote


How do we spend our lives?

There is a constant flux of things happening in nature, and even the solid boundaries of seasons are slowly disappearing.

When a sunny day comes, it's only the noon when a brisk tiny wind appears, bearing white and rose petals of flowers, but it's obvious it comes from areas where the ice and cold still rules. Rare snowflakes are mixed with flower petals.

Man is closing his eyes, buttoning all buttons on his coat and feels like a weak, vulnerable creature, exposed to invisible dangers and surprises of the chaos, surrounding him from outside, and filling him from inside.

And when he opens his eyes for a moment, he sees in this whirl of petals and snowflakes, a small white butterfly, trying to save himself with desperate flaps of his weak wings, looking more like some deathbed twitches.

It also should be said, this play of light and colors on the gray background of a March landscape, is followed by a silent but sharp whining through branches of sparse conifers.

Looking at all this, I felt a thin but deep shiver in my whole body, a part of that large vague fear which sometimes fills us from head to heal and stops us frozen, in front of which we have to ask ourself: what are we humans, where do we think we live, and where is our short life really going by?

Serbian Novelist, Ivo Andric. Translated by Sasha

Quote by Julia Stiles

 
I think women get caught up too much in having a plan - 'I'm going to get married at this age; I'm going to have a kid at this age' - and then they just try to find a guy who will fit into that picture. I don't want my life to be based on that.

Quote by J C Watts

 
I'm not driven to get back into politics. It's not on my top five things to do before I die, but saying that, I may be in politics in the next year or the next ten years. I've been on the front line for 12 years, four in state government, eight on the national level.

Quote by Buddha

 
Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship.

Quote by Oscar Wilde

 
I choose my friends for their good looks, my acquaintances for their good characters, and my enemies for their intellects. A man cannot be too careful in the choice of his enemies.
