Top Reflective Quotes

Reflective Quotes By David Wong

He whipped the chair around and actually split one of the things in half with the impact, spilling the spray of blood that was reflective, like mercury.
John bellowed, "Anyone else want to donate blood to chair-ity?"
He ducked into the the door and bashed one monster right in the wig, screaming, "There's some dessert! With a chair-y on top! — David Wong

Reflective Quotes By Edgar Allan Poe

I will, therefore, take occasion to assert that the higher powers of the reflective intellect are more decidedly and more usefully tasked by the unostentatious game of draughts than by a the elaborate frivolity of chess. — Edgar Allan Poe

Reflective Quotes By Randy Pausch

The best gift an educator can give, to get somebody to become self-reflective. — Randy Pausch

Reflective Quotes By Marianne Williamson

My biggest past mistakes have been when I made decisions out of ego rather than spirit. When I acted too quickly. When I wasn't contemplative or reflective or prayerful enough, and I ended up making what I would only later see to be unwise decisions. — Marianne Williamson

But there remained a reflective solitude behind that laughter, that nagging sense of completion that didn't sit well on the shoulders of a woman who had just begun to open her eyes to the wide world. — R.A. Salvatore

I do my best to write my way through it. It helps the laughing, reflective part come quicker. — Madi Diaz

I found a
that had a

mirror in it
and that

a mirror

me that
had a
weed in it — A.R. Ammons

Reflective Quotes By Paul Sochaczewski

It strikes me that the power or capability of a man in getting rich is in inverse proportion to his reflective powers and in direct proportion to his impudence. — Paul Sochaczewski

Reflective Quotes By Debasish Mridha

Philosophy is the reflection of reflective mind. — Debasish Mridha

Reflective Quotes By Thomas Cahill

However much he, as a reflective adult, modified her attitudes and diluted her prejudices, much of his instinctive outlook was formed by this fierce, unbending woman, so that in many ways Jesus's worldview is already spelled out in the Magnificat, the — Thomas Cahill

Reflective Quotes By Frederick Lenz

Nature is the endless reflective pattern of existence in eternity. As I sit here watching the leaves and watching their patterns, I'm reminded of so many things I've seen in other planes and in other worlds. — Frederick Lenz

Reflective Quotes By A.A. Milne

Nowhere can I think so happily as in a train. I am not inspired; nothing so uncomfortable as that. I am never seized with a sudden idea for a masterpiece, nor form a sudden plan for some new enterprise. My thoughts are just pleasantly reflective. I think of all the good deeds I have done, and (when these give out) of all the good deeds I am going to do. I look out of the window and say lazily to myself, "How jolly to live there"; and a little farther on, "How jolly not to live there." I see a cow, and I wonder what it is like to be a cow, and I wonder whether the cow wonders what it is to be like me; and perhaps, by this time, we have passed on to a sheep, and I wonder if it is more fun being a sheep. My mind wanders on in a way which would annoy Pelman a good deal, but it wanders on quite happily, and the "clankety-clank" of the train adds a very soothing accompaniment. So soothing, indeed, that at any moment I can close my eyes and pass into a pleasant state of sleep. — A.A. Milne

Reflective Quotes By Joe Rogan

The people who could most benefit from the self-reflective ego-dissolving qualities of cannabis are the ones that want it to be illegal. — Joe Rogan

Reflective Quotes By Jake Gyllenhaal

I also think within the scene, a specific scene - if I were to play a part that I played 10 years ago now, my interpretation of that scene would be totally different. I would be making different choices. Because I can't somehow subtract all of the experiences that I've had in my life. And it's fascinating to see, because somewhere I'm very reflective in that. You know, I've been playing basically actually close to 40 years old, so I'm somewhere lost in age in this movie. But it's been fascinating to see that I can't subtract that time. — Jake Gyllenhaal

Reflective Quotes By John C. Maxwell

When you reflect, you are able to put an experience into perspective ... reflective thinking enables you to distance yourself from the intense emotions of particularly good or bad experiences and see them with fresh eyes. — John C. Maxwell

Reflective Quotes By Stephanie Perkins

Foreign novels are less action-oriented. They have a different pace; they're more reflective. They challenge us to look for the story, find the story within the story. — Stephanie Perkins

Reflective Quotes By Joshua Klassen

Faith-Defined beyond the confines of the mind. — Joshua Klassen

Reflective Quotes By Chandrakant Kaluram Mhatre

Once the word becomes your kindred, the world becomes your home. — Chandrakant Kaluram Mhatre

Reflective Quotes By Joel T. McGrath

Never follow the crowd, for the masses are often misled. — Joel T. McGrath

Reflective Quotes By Susan Cain

What if you love knowledge for its own sake, not necessarily as a blueprint to action? What if you wish there were more, not fewer reflective types in the world? — Susan Cain

Reflective Quotes By Steven Pinker

Since the point of erotica is to offer the consumer sexual experiences without having to compromise with the demands of the other sex, it is a window into each sex's unalloyed desires. Pornography for men is visual, anatomical, impulsive, floridly promiscuous and devoid of context and character. Erotica for women is far more likely to be verbal, psychological, reflective, serially monogamous and rich in context and character. Men fantasise about copulating with bodies; women fantasise about making love to people. — Steven Pinker

Reflective Quotes By Sarah J. Maas

But death was her curse and her gift, and death had been her good friend these long, long years. — Sarah J. Maas

Reflective Quotes By C. JoyBell C.

And so the beauty was in being alone; but it was also the pain. — C. JoyBell C.

Reflective Quotes By Keith Getty

I think just the above things. I think I wanted to learn from both cultures. So, I think the music is a little more reflective of the ... Catholic culture but the theology, obviously, is much more Reformational. — Keith Getty

Reflective Quotes By Mick Fleetwood

To me, the blues is an infection. I don't think it's necessarily a melancholy thing; the blues can be really positive and I think I think anyone and everyone can have a place for the blues. It need not always a woeful, sorrowful thing. It's more reflective; it reminds you to feel. — Mick Fleetwood

Reflective Quotes By Benjamin Franklin

A man separated from his reflective belt is no man at all. — Benjamin Franklin

Reflective Quotes By Glenn Dean

Troops are everywhere in their modern, digital camouflage, designed to blend in anywhere at any time. Yet at night we wear bright yellow reflective belts. — Glenn Dean

Reflective Quotes By Kevin Brockmeier

What I wanted was to write a memoir that was immersive rather than reflective, to resurrect a long-gone version of my own consciousness. I kept expecting that sooner or later the effort would come to seem like second nature to me, but it never did. — Kevin Brockmeier

Reflective Quotes By Julia Sloan

Engaging in the critical reflective processes of critical inquiry, critical dialogue, critical reflection, and critical thinking is key to understanding the complexity of strategic problems. Yet, the process is often overlooked as leaders race to find an expeditious solution to a complex problem. Like — Julia Sloan

Reflective Quotes By Helene Brenner

Being reflective also means listening to your inner self with new ears. The truth is, we think we've heard our own story so much that we stop listening to it! We become like the people in our lives who we complain don't listen to us. With reflection, we listen freshly to our selves, the way we would like to be listened to. There — Helene Brenner

Reflective Quotes By Kilroy J. Oldster

Reflective writing produces distinct rewards. A writer does not claim to live exclusively in the moment. A pensive writer retreats into oneself in noble attempt to meld memory, thought, faith, doubt, and other strong emotions into thought capsules while exploring the inscrutable web of creation. — Kilroy J. Oldster

Reflective Quotes By Christina Ricci

I think that the best career that someone can have is one that's reflective of their personal tastes. — Christina Ricci

Reflective Quotes By Thomas E. Wartenberg

Since it is in the nature of consciousness to be reflective, we can never fully inhabit any conscious state that we are in, so that our 'restlessness' lies in the very nature of our being. — Thomas E. Wartenberg

Reflective Quotes By Chandrakant Kaluram Mhatre

Religion only helps; until and unless it degenerates into either ritualism or fanaticism, or worse the both! — Chandrakant Kaluram Mhatre

Reflective Quotes By Sarah Wendell

Anything written for an audience of mostly women by a community of mostly women is subversive, reflective of the current sexual, emotional, and political status, and actively embraces and undermines that status simultaneously. — Sarah Wendell

Reflective Quotes By Jacqui Stedmon

Words, language and representation of meaning are an important aspect of reflective practice. Slips of the tongue, dream interpretations and the whole idea of a 'talking cure' rests on our capacity to reflect on what is (or is not) said. — Jacqui Stedmon

Reflective Quotes By Michael Douglas

Cigar smoking by it's very nature is much more reflective than interactive. — Michael Douglas

Reflective Quotes By Stephanie Oakes

Jude used to try to make me laugh, and when I'd crack a smile he'd keep the joke going , like breath on an ember, making it grow into a fit of giggles that'd echo around the whole forest and make all the birds in the trees quiet. — Stephanie Oakes

Reflective Quotes By H.L. Mencken

My belief is that happiness is necessarily transient. The natural state of a reflective man is one of depression. The world is a botch. Women can make men perfectly happy, but they seldom know how to do it. They make too much effort: they overlook the powerful effect of simple amiability. Women are also the cause of the worst kind of unhappiness. — H.L. Mencken

Reflective Quotes By Pete Townshend

I felt that the elegance of pop music was that it was reflective: we were holding up a mirror to our audience and reflecting them philosophically and spiritually, rather than just reflecting society or something called 'rock and roll.' — Pete Townshend

Reflective Quotes By Jonathan Rauch

Are introverts arrogant? Hardly. I suppose this common misconception has to do with our being more intelligent, more reflective, more independent, more level-headed, more refined, and more sensitive than extroverts. — Jonathan Rauch

Reflective Quotes By Aristotle.

In a practical syllogism, the major premise is an opinion, while the minor premise deals with particular things, which are the province of perception. Now when the two premises are combined, just as in theoretic reasoning the mind is compelled to affirm the resulting conclusion, so in the case of practical premises you are forced at once to do it. — Aristotle.

Reflective Quotes By Eckhart Tolle

But do you need to have a relationship with yourself at all? Why can't you just be yourself? When you have a relationship with yourself, you have split yourself into two: "I" and "myself," subject and object. That mind-created duality is the root cause of all unnecessary complexity, of all problems and conflict in your life. In the state of enlightenment, you are yourself - "you" and "yourself" merge into one. You do not judge yourself, you do not feel sorry for yourself, you are not proud of yourself, you do not love yourself, you do not hate yourself, and so on. The split caused by self-reflective consciousness is healed, its curse removed. There is no "self" that you need to protect, defend, or feed anymore. — Eckhart Tolle

Reflective Quotes By Patrick Leahy

I look forward to the time when the membership of the Supreme Court's more reflective of the country it serves. — Patrick Leahy

Reflective Quotes By Deepak Chopra

The highest levels of performance come to people who are centered, intuitive, creative, and reflective - people who know to see a problem as an opportunity. — Deepak Chopra

Reflective Quotes By Bill Hybels

Develop your reflective will and gain better insight before you say or do something. — Bill Hybels

Reflective Quotes By Herodotus

What the History is really about lies behind this: man, giant-sized, seen against the background of the entire world, universalized in his conflict with destiny, the gods, and the cosmic order. The medium that is most fertile in showing the true nature of reality is the human mind, remembering, reflective, and fertile most of all when its memory and reflection are put at the service of its dreaming and fantastic side. — Herodotus

Reflective Quotes By Chuck D

The immediacy of the technology of the web allows us, as songwriters, to write something very sharp and quick. That has a lot to do with helping a songwriter be more reflective of reality, instead of being in an area where you have to process things. It's the difference between processing fish and catching it in a boat. — Chuck D

Reflective Quotes By Joel T. McGrath

When you find yourself in the presence of a lion, it's best to know which side of the cage you're on. — Joel T. McGrath

Reflective Quotes By Barbara Kingsolver

I did it to win love, and to prove myself capable. Not to move mountains. In my opinions, mountains don't move. They only look changed when you look down on them from great height. — Barbara Kingsolver

Reflective Quotes By Ana Tijoux

My kid is seven years old and is learning to read and conjugate, but I don't agree with that kind of education because I feel that the concepts are not contextualized ... it's interesting to try to make my kid a reflective boy, rather than just a repetitive boy, even if he doesn't agree with me. — Ana Tijoux

Reflective Quotes By Graham Farmelo

During the meeting in Delhi with Dirac on 12 January 1955, Nehru asked him if he had any recommendations for the future of the new republic of India. After his usual reflective pause, Dirac replied: 'A common language, preferably English. Peace with Pakistan. The metric system. — Graham Farmelo

Reflective Quotes By David Zayas

Art has to be reflective of our society. — David Zayas

Reflective Quotes By Michael Bhaskar

A strong and variegated publishing environment helps create deliberative, reflective societies. Publishing — Michael Bhaskar

Reflective Quotes By Washington Irving

Surely happiness is reflective, like the light of heaven; and every countenance, bright with smiles, and glowing with innocent enjoyment, is a mirror transmitting to others the rays of a supreme and ever-shining benevolence. — Washington Irving

Reflective Quotes By Warren G. Bennis

Make sure you have someone in your life from whom you can get reflective feedback. — Warren G. Bennis

Reflective Quotes By Joel T. McGrath

At the end of the 19th century, people were filled with thoughts of future hope, but at the end of the 20th century, it was fear, hate, and mistrust. — Joel T. McGrath

Reflective Quotes By Philip Kitcher

If there are to be appropriate judgments about what questions are significant, you need both the informed views of scientists who know what has been achieved and what future developments are promising and the reflective judgments of representatives of different groups who can identify what kinds of information are most urgently needed. — Philip Kitcher

Reflective Quotes By Sherwood Anderson

One conceals oneself standing silently beside the trunk of a tree and what there is of a reflective tendency in his nature is intensified. One shudders at the thought of the meaninglessness of life while at the same instant, and if the people of the town are his people, one loves life so intensely that tears come into the eyes. — Sherwood Anderson

Reflective Quotes By Eleanor Catton

One could know a thousand women, Gascoigne thought; one could take a different girl every night for years and years - but sooner or later, the new lovers would do little more than call to mind the old, and one would be forced to wander, lost, in that reflective maze of endless comparison, forever disappointed, forever turning back. — Eleanor Catton

Reflective Quotes By Ken Robinson

Richard Felder is co-developer of the Index of Learning Styles. He suggests that there are eight different learning styles. Active learners absorb material best by applying it in some fashion or explaining it to others. Reflective learners prefer to consider the material before doing anything with it. Sensing learners like learning facts and tend to be good with details. Intuitive learners like to identify the relationships between things and are comfortable with abstract concepts. Visual learners remember best what they see, while verbal learners do better with written and spoken explanations. Sequential learners like to learn by following a process from one logical step to the next, while global learners tend to make cognitive leaps, continuously taking in information until they get it. — Ken Robinson

Reflective Quotes By Ian McEwan

Beyond a certain age, a journey across the city becomes uncomfortably reflective ... One day I too will prompt a moment's reflection in the passenger of a passing cab. — Ian McEwan

Reflective Quotes By Emily Bronte

You have been compelled to cultivate your reflective faculties for want of occasions for frittering away your life on silly trifles. — Emily Bronte

Reflective Quotes By Soren Kierkegaard

An increased power of reflection like an increased knowledge only adds to man's affliction, and above all it is certain that for the individual as for the generation no task is more difficult than to escape from the temptations of reflection, simply because they are so dialectical and the result of one clever discovery may give the whole question a new turn, because at any moment reflection is capable of explaining everything quite differently and allowing one some way of escape; because at the last moment of a reflective decision reflection is capable of changing everything
after one has made far greater exertions than are necessary to get a man of character into the midst of things. — Soren Kierkegaard

Reflective Quotes By Angela Duckworth

Staying on the treadmill is one thing, and I do think it's related to staying true to our commitments even when we're not comfortable. But getting back on the treadmill the next day, eager to try again, is in my view even more reflective of grit. Because when you don't come back the next day - when you permanently turn your back on a commitment - your effort plummets to zero. As a consequence, your skills stop improving, and at the same time, you stop producing anything with whatever skills you have. — Angela Duckworth

Reflective Quotes By Parker J. Palmer

In classical understanding, education is the attempt to "lead out" from within the self a core of wisdom that has the power to resist falsehood and live in the light of truth, not by external norms but by reasoned and reflective self-determination. The inward teacher is the living core of our lives that is addressed and evoked by any education worthy of the name. — Parker J. Palmer

Reflective Quotes By Jennifer Niven

The world after a war is a good world, I told myself. A happy world. A secure world. In this world, I might do anything. — Jennifer Niven

Reflective Quotes By Carlos Castaneda

It was stupidity that forced us to discard anything that did not conform with ourself - reflective expectations. — Carlos Castaneda

Reflective Quotes By David Corn

The Republican base is not reflective of the whole country. — David Corn

Reflective Quotes By Dorothy Dunnett

There is a saying of my adoptive ancestors. Though he performs a miracle, or two miracles, if he refuses the third miracle, it is not as profit to him. I shall dine at the Court of France tonight, and in the course of that evening, acquire the royal consent for O'LiamRoe and myself to stay as long as we please. For, to be perfectly frank," said Lymond, gently reflective, "to be perfectly frank, I can't wait to sink my teeth into the most magnificent, the most scholarly and the most dissolute Court in Europe, which so lightly slid out The O'LiamRoe, Chief of the Name, on his kneecaps and whiskers. — Dorothy Dunnett

Reflective Quotes By Angela Carter

What big eyes you have. Eyes of an incomparable luminosity, the numinous phosphorescence of the eyes of lycanthropes. The gelid green of your eyes fixes my reflective face; It is a preservative, like a green liquid amber; it catches me. I am afraid I will be trapped in it for ever like the poor little ants and flies that stuck their feet in resin before the sea covered the Baltic. He winds me into the circle of his eye on a reel of birdsong. There is a black hole in the middle of both your eyes; it is their still centre, looking there makes me giddy, as if I might fall into it. — Angela Carter

Reflective Quotes By Barack Obama

You've got audiences cheering at the prospect of somebody dying because they don't have health care and booing a service member in Iraq because they're gay. That's not reflective of who we are. — Barack Obama

Reflective Quotes By Frances Allen

You've got to be very insightful about your brand, who you are, and what you mean to people. You've got to be able to inspire the whole organization behind that vision, so that every touch point the consumer experiences with the brand is reflective of that same brand promise. — Frances Allen

Reflective Quotes By Hina Hashmi

Our bodies are reflective of our inner feelings. If we feel emotionally or sexually vulnerable inside, we may build a protective layer of fat over our abdomen or hips, the places where we hold our emotions and sexuality. — Hina Hashmi

Reflective Quotes By Augusten Burroughs

My parents had this relationship that was really terrifying. I mean, the level of hatred that they had, and the level of physical abuse - my mother would beat up my father, basically - and I think I was drawn to images on television that were bright and reflective. — Augusten Burroughs

Reflective Quotes By Clifford Stoll

It's a great medium for trivia and hobbies, but not the place for reasoned, reflective judgment. Suprisingly often, discussions degenerate into acrimony, insults and flames. — Clifford Stoll

Reflective Quotes By Martin Guevara Urbina

Reflective learning provokes critical thinking, enabling us to pose relevant questions, revealing the profound oceans of ignorance that surround even the most learned scholars in our fields of modern knowledge, invoking us to be active participants in the crusade for equality, representation, and social justice. — Martin Guevara Urbina

Reflective Quotes By John Ruskin

The highest reward for a man's toil is not what he gets for it but what he becomes by it. — John Ruskin

Reflective Quotes By Paul Broks

Neuroscience is fast developing the technical and conceptual wherewithal to reveal in fine, bare detail the neurobiological substrates of the mind. Perhaps it will despoil a sacred myth - the myth of selfhood and souls. And, if so, we may be wandering innocently into the opening phase of a dangerous game. Our ethics and systems of justice, our entire moral order, are founded on the notion of society as a collective of individual selves - autonomous, introspective, accountable agents. If this self-reflective, moral agent is revealed to be illusory, then what? — Paul Broks

Reflective Quotes By Curtis Sittenfeld

" My mother paused, and her tone was reflective in that way that is inevitably sad, because the past is sad. "What I remember," she said, "is that you were always such a dear little girl. — Curtis Sittenfeld

Reflective Quotes By Michael Ignatieff

Those with a gift for action, for their part, often express contempt for those whose gifts are more reflective. Men of action like to say, 'Those who can, do, those who can't, teach,' forgetting that those who teach get to write the history books. — Michael Ignatieff

Reflective Quotes By Hugh Mackay

A strangely reflective, even melancholy day. Is that because, unlike our cousins in the northern hemisphere, Easter is not associated with the energy and vitality of spring but with the more subdued spirit of autumn? — Hugh Mackay

Reflective Quotes By Michael Leunig

I was a reflective child. — Michael Leunig

Reflective Quotes By Gavin Edwards

River smiled sweetly at his tormentors and told them, "If you want to kick my ass, go ahead. Just explain to me why you're doing it."
After a confused pause, one of the skinheads said, "Ah, you wouldn't be worth it."
"We're all worth it, man," River said with a beatific smile. "We're all worth millions of planets and stars and galaxies and universes. — Gavin Edwards

Reflective Quotes By Lozetta Hayden

Some of our best and most productive moments arise from a period when we are silent and reflective. — Lozetta Hayden

Reflective Quotes By Ronald Knox

A rush age cannot be a reflective age. — Ronald Knox

Reflective Quotes By Lauren Kate

As early as the angels' genesis, Lucinda's wings were bright reflective silver, the color of starlight. They had shone in their singular glory since the dawn of the dawn of time. — Lauren Kate

Reflective Quotes By Alan W. Watts

Like too much alcohol,self-consciousness makes us see ourselves double, and we make the double image for two selves - mental and material, controlling and controlled, reflective and spontaneous. Thus instead of suffering we suffer about suffering, and suffer about suffering about suffering. — Alan W. Watts

Reflective Quotes By Michael Bloomberg

When you come in to court as a plaintiff or as a defendant, it is terribly important that you look up at the bench and feel that that person represents you and will understand you, that that person is reflective of our community and of our society. — Michael Bloomberg

Reflective Quotes By Evan Spiegel

We never saw Google+ Circles or Facebook Lists as reflective of the way our friendships play out. — Evan Spiegel

Reflective Quotes By Mya

Clothing, hair and make-up are just reflective of how I am feeling at any given moment and that varies from day to day. — Mya

Reflective Quotes By Timothy Carey

The best way for parents to go about acquiring a mind-set of self-reflective parenting will be different for different individuals. Some people will find that they are already very close to being the parent they are striving to be. Other people will find reading books or blog articles to be very helpful and some other people might benefit most by engaging in discussions on the internet. — Timothy Carey

Reflective Quotes By Inio Asano

In town, there's a tiny beach that's never busy, not even in the summer.

I used to like walking there, looking for stuff.

Like old fireworks.

Or kelp.

A hat knocked off someone's head by the wind.

You basically never find what you were expecting to.

And maybe you weren't expecting to find anything right from the start... — Inio Asano

Reflective Quotes By Arnold Bennett

I am entirely convinced that what is more than anything else lacking in the life of the average well-intentioned man of to-day is the reflective mood. — Arnold Bennett

Reflective Quotes By Mitch Cullin

Ultimately, Roger learned only of the encounter with the urban bees. The boy remained thoroughly fascinated by what he heard nonetheless, his blue-eyed stare never once straying from Holmes; his visage passive and accepting, his eyes wide, Roger's pupils stated fixed on those venerable, reflective eyes, as though the boy were seeing distant lights shimmering along an opaque horizon, a glimpse of something flickering and alive existing beyond his reach. And, in turn, the gray eyes that focused sharply on him - piercing and kind at the same instant - endeavoured to bridge the lifetime that separated the two of them, attempting to do so as brandy was sipped, and the vial's glass grew warmer against soft palms, and that seasoned, well-lived voice somehow made Roger feel much older and more worldly than his years. — Mitch Cullin

Reflective Quotes By Gloria Naylor

She had stepped into the thin strip of earth that they claimed as their own. Bound by the last building on Brewster and a brick wall, they reigned in that unlit alley like dwarfed warrior kings. Born with the appendages of power, circumcised by the guillotine, and baptized with the steam from a million non reflective mirrors, these young men wouldn't be called upon to thrust a bayonet into an Asian farmer, target a torpedo, scatter their iron seed from a B-52 into the wound of the earth, point a finger to move a nation, or stick a pole into the moon
and they knew it. They only had that three-hundred-foot alley to serve them as stateroom, armored tank, and executioner's chamber. — Gloria Naylor

Reflective Quotes By Peter Senge

I think the terminology I would use is 'a continuous process of reflection'. I've always thought of only two questions that have mattered to me personally. One is what is really needed in the world and the second is what's really important to me and how these two intersect. It's always been a reflective process - spiraling around these two poles. — Peter Senge

Reflective Quotes By Gregory Maguire

We start out in identical perfection: bright, reflective, full of sun. The accident of our lives bruises us into dirty individuality. We meet with grief. Our character dulls and tarnishes. We meet with guilt. We know, we know: the price of living is corruption. There isn't as much light as there once was. In the grave we lapse back into undifferentiated sameness — Gregory Maguire
