PinkMonkey® Quotations on . . .
QUOTATION: One grows out of pity when its useless.
QUOTATION: It was undoubtedly the feeling of exilethat sensation
of a void within which never left us, that irrational longing to hark
back to the past or else to speed up the march of time, and those keen
shafts of memory that stung like fire.
QUOTATION: Everyone Tarrou set eyes on had that vacant gaze, and was
visibly suffering from the complete break with all that life had meant
to him. And since they could not be thinking of their death all the time,
they thought of nothing... For really to think about someone means
thinking about that person every minute of the day, without letting ones
thoughts be diverted by anything; by meals, by a fly that settles on someones
cheek, by household duties, or by a sudden itch somewhere. But there are
always flies and itches. Thats why life is difficult to live.
