Quote of the Day

Nepal is a beautiful country with a lot of holy places. I also like the country because it's close to the Himalayas. According to Hindu mythology, that's the abode of Lord Shiva.
I'm quite detached from failure and success. Once a shooting is done, I kind of close that chapter in my life.
I am very close to my family. I have learned a lot from my father. He used to tell me to be honest with yourself and not to argue with your seniors. You don't need to be involved in any quarrel, as sometimes you need to remain silent intelligently.
It was close to like a 67- or 70-day shoot for 'Tron' on stage, in the suit. You can't even sit down during the day because of all the cables that divide the foam rubber and all the electrical circuits. We had these stools that were tall with a bicycle seat on them and you're just looking at a blue screen all day.
I couldn't have come close without my teammates' help because the Knicks didn't want me to make 100.
The successful pilots succeeded because they did not open fire until they were close to the target.
This is the hardest of all: to close the open hand out of love, and keep modest as a giver.
I also became close to nature, and am now able to appreciate the beauty with which this world is endowed.
However successful you are, there is no substitute for a close relationship. We all need them.
Religion and art spring from the same root and are close kin. Economics and art are strangers.
It's odd that you can get so anesthetized by your own pain or your own problem that you don't quite fully share the hell of someone close to you.
Lady Bird Johnson
What friends or kindred can be so close and intimate as the powers of our soul, which, whether we will or no, must ever bear us company?
Saint Teresa of Avila
When two people first meet, they can only have a very ordinary kind of friendship. But when you begin to understand each other, when you get close to them, you discover that you're suddenly eager to know him or her even better.
If you see a whole thing - it seems that it's always beautiful. Planets, lives... But up close a world's all dirt and rocks. And day to day, life's a hard job, you get tired, you lose the pattern.
Ursula K. Le Guin
I don't have many friends; I'm very much a loner. As a child I was very isolated, and I've never been really close to anyone.
With women, I've got a long bamboo pole with a leather loop on the end. I slip the loop around their necks so they can't get away or come too close. Like catching snakes.

I lost relatives to AIDS, a couple of my closest cousins. I lost friends to AIDS, high-school friends who never even made it to their 21st birthdays in the '80s. When it's that close to you, you can't really deny it, and you can't run from it.
There was a moment in my life when I really wanted to kill myself. And there was one other moment when I was close to that. But even in my most jaded times, I had some hope.

I would say it simply: No one can give that which he doesn't personally possess, which means we cannot transmit the Holy Spirit in an effective way, render the Spirit perceptible, if we ourselves aren't close to the Spirit.
Pope Benedict XVI
In order to be cruel we have to close our hearts to the suffering of the other.
J. M. Coetzee
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
