Egon Quotes By Peter Clines

Important safety tip," she said. "Thanks, Egon." When he gave her a blank look, she just smiled and waved him around the corner. "Talk amongst yourselves," she called to them. Roger looked at Nate. "That's a movie quote, right?" "Yeah, Ghostbusters, I think," said Nate "You sure?" "Yes, it's Ghostbusters, you philistines," Xela shouted around the corner. "How can you not immediately know that?" "I think I was four when Ghostbusters came out," Roger called back. "It's an American classic! — Peter Clines

Egon Quotes By Albert Hammond Jr.

Egon Schiele is my favorite painter. There's just something about art - photography, painting, music, plays - whatever you see, sometimes there's a gut reaction that's more important or more visceral than what your brain is thinking about. You can't explain that reaction. It's like what happens when you fall in love. — Albert Hammond Jr.

Egon Quotes By Egon Friedell

The artist's view of the world and mankind is that which seeks as far as possible to lose itself in its object, illuminating it not from the outside by some light foreign to it, but from within, deriving light from its own core. — Egon Friedell

Egon Quotes By Egon Friedell

Artists of all sorts remain youthful for so long, and in many cases attain a grand old age. The explanation is that they live in an almost permanent condition of stimulation and excitement. — Egon Friedell

Egon Quotes By Egon Friedell

Art is the subjective, preferential treatment of certain elements of reality; it selects and resets, distributes light and shade, omits and underlines, softens and emphasises. — Egon Friedell

Egon Quotes By Milan Kundera

Who is the pioneer of modern journalism? Not Hemingway who wrote of his experiences in the trenches, not Orwell who spent a year of his life with the Parisian poor, not Egon Erwin Kisch the expert on Prague prostitutes, but Oriana Fallaci who in the years 1969 to 1972 published a series of interviews with the most famous politicians of the time. Those interviews were more than mere conversations; they were duels. Before the powerful politicians realized that they were fighting under unequal conditions
for she was allowed to ask questions but they were not
they were already on the floor of the ring, KO'ed. — Milan Kundera

Egon Quotes By Egon Friedell

God does not rule the world outwardly by gravitation and chemical affinity, but inwardly in the heart of man: as is your soul, so will the destiny be of the world in which you live and do. — Egon Friedell

Clothe an idea in words and it loses its freedom of movement. — Egon Friedell

Egon Quotes By Sunshine Taylor Reddick

Egon Quotes By Kendare Blake

I get to be Peter Venkman," says Thomas. "Nobody gets to be anybody," I snap. "We are not ghostbusters. I've got the knife, and I kill the ghosts, and I can't be tripping over you the whole time. Besides, it's obvious that I would be Peter Venkman." I look sharply at Thomas. "You would be Egon. — Kendare Blake

Egon Quotes By Egon Schiele

I do not deny that I have made drawings and watercolors of an erotic nature. But they are always works of art. Are there no artists who have done erotic pictures? — Egon Schiele

Egon Quotes By Ned Beauman

The Nazis, he had written in his latest, are wedded to a sort of aesthetico-moral fallacy, which is that if a man has blond hair, blue eyes and strong features, then he will also be brave, loyal, intelligent and so on. They truly believe that goodness has some causal relationship with beauty. Which is idiotic, yes, but no more idiotic than you are, Egon. When you see a girl like Adele Hitler with an innocent, pretty face, can you honestly tell me you don't assume she must be an angelic person? Even though it makes about as much sense as astrology. — Ned Beauman

Egon Quotes By Egon Schiele

Art cannot be modern. Art is primordially eternal. — Egon Schiele

Egon Quotes By Egon Schiele

I shall go so far that people will be seized with terror at the sight of each of my works of 'living' art. — Egon Schiele

Egon Quotes By Oliver Sacks

At the end of our visit, Fleisher agreed to play something on my piano, a beautiful old 1894 Bechstein concert grand that I had grown up with, my father's piano. Fleisher sat at the piano and carefully, tenderly, stretched each finger in turn, and then, with arms and hands almost flat, he started to play. He played a piano transcription of Bach's "Sheep May Safely Graze," as arranged for piano by Egon Petri. Never in its 112 years, I thought, had this piano been played by such a master-I had the feeling that Fleisher has sized up the piano's character and perhaps its idiosyncrasies within seconds, that he had matched his playing to the instrument, to bring out its greatest potential, its particularity. Fleisher seemed to distill the beauty, drop by drop, like an alchemist, into flowing notes of an almost unbearable beauty-and, after this, there was nothing more to be said. — Oliver Sacks

Egon Quotes By Ned Beauman

You know she'll probably be at the party tonight? Which is why I'm absolutely not going if we don't get some coke.'
'Egon, why is it that every single time you're obliged to be in the same room with one of your ex-girlfriends you have to make it into a huge emergency? It's incredibly boring.'
'Come on. You know how it is. You catch sight of an old flame and get this breathless
animal prickle like a fox in a room with a hound. And then all night you have to seem carefree and successful and elated, which is a pretence that for some reason you feel no choice but to maintain even though you know they're better qualified than anyone else
in the world to detect immediately that you're really the same hapless cunt as ever.'
'That's adolescent. The fact that you are so neurotic about your past lovers makes it both fortunate and predictable that you have so few of them. It's one of those elegant self-regulating systems that one so often finds in nature. — Ned Beauman

Egon Quotes By Egon Schiele

Everything is dead while it lives. — Egon Schiele

Egon Quotes By Egon Friedell

We can never see the world other than incompletely: deliberately to see it as incomplete is to create an artistic aspect. — Egon Friedell

Egon Quotes By Egon Schiele

I must see new things and investigate them. I want to taste dark water and see crackling trees and wild winds. — Egon Schiele

Egon Quotes By Egon Bahr

Egon Quotes By Milla Jovovich

Egon Quotes By Egon Friedell

The worst prejudice we acquire during our youth is the idea that life is serious. Children have the right instincts: they know that life is not serious, and treat it as a game... — Egon Friedell

Egon Quotes By Egon Schiele

I don't know whether there is anyone else at all who remembers my noble father with such sadness. — Egon Schiele

Egon Quotes By Egon Schiele

My mother is a very strange woman ... She doesn't understand me in the least and doesn't love me much either. If she had either love or understanding she would be prepared to make sacrifices. — Egon Schiele

Egon Quotes By Egon Schiele

Bodies have their own light which they consume to live: they burn, they are not lit from the outside. — Egon Schiele

Egon Quotes By Egon Friedell

Electricity and magnetism are those forces of nature by which people who know nothing about electricity and magnetism can explain everything. — Egon Friedell
