Provoking Quotations

Love you will find only where you may show yourself weak without provoking strength.
Theodor Adorno

I'm not interested in provoking people, but only in trying to be consoling.
Martin Kippenberger

I remember my fourth grade teacher reading 'Charlotte's Web' and 'Stuart Little' to us - both, of course, by E. B. White. His stories were genuinely funny, thought provoking and full of irony and charm. He didn't condescend to his readers, which was why I liked his books, and why I wasn't a big reader of other children's' books.
Louis Sachar

To give and receive love, you have to be in touch with pain, you have to be capable of provoking it and feeling it.
Jeanne Moreau
