Quote of the Day
All good music resembles something. Good music stirs by its mysterious resemblance to the objects and feelings which motivated it.
If there is such a thing as a good marriage, it is because it resembles friendship rather than love.
Michel de Montaigne
Marriage resembles a pair of shears, so joined that they cannot be separated; often moving in opposite directions, yet always punishing anyone who comes between them.
This self-love is the instrument of our preservation; it resembles the provision for the perpetuity of mankind: it is necessary, it is dear to us, it gives us pleasure, and we must conceal it.
Death most resembles a prophet who is without honor in his own land or a poet who is a stranger among his people.
Every beauty which is seen here by persons of perception resembles more than anything else that celestial source from which we all are come.
It always amuses me that the biggest praise for my work comes for the imagination, while the truth is that there's not a single line in all my work that does not have a basis in reality. The problem is that Caribbean reality resembles the wildest imagination.
Gabriel Garcia Marquez
The noise resembles the roar of heavy, distant surf. Standing on the stirring ice one can imagine it is disturbed by the breathing and tossing of a mighty giant below.

I guess Twitter is the first thing that has been attractive to me as social media. I never felt the least draw to Facebook or MySpace. I've been involved anonymously in some tiny listservs, mainly in my ceaseless quest for random novelty, and sometimes while doing something that more closely resembles research.
Art has two constant, two unending concerns: It always meditates on death and thus always creates life. All great, genuine art resembles and continues the Revelation of St John.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
John F. Kennedy
Leonardo da Vinci
