I'm no model lady. A model's just an imitation of the real thing.
What is real is not the external form, but the essence of things... it is impossible for anyone to express anything essentially real by imitating its exterior surface.
That all who have ever been born men from the beginning of creation, and are deceased, are either in heaven or in hell, follows from those things which have been said and shown in the preceding article, namely, that Heaven and Hell are from the human race.
I never felt comfortable in real life very well. It's always been an awkward kind of thing for me and so when I hit the stage I just sensed freedom. I sensed here's a place that I can have all the experiences of life and not feel uncomfortable about it.
The one thing that men and women have in common - they both like the company of men.
There are two things a real man likes - danger and play. And he likes women because she is the most dangerous of playthings.
What gives the artist real prestige is his imitators.
Men can do all things if they will.
Please know that I am aware of the hazards. I want to do it because I want to do it. Women must try to do things as men have tried. When they fail, their failure must be a challenge to others.
Each of us, face to face with other men, is clothed with some sort of dignity, but we know only too well all the unspeakable things that go on in the heart.
In love, no one can harm anyone else; we are each of us responsible for our own feelings and cannot blame someone else for what we feel. It hurt when I lost each of the various men I fell in love with. Now, though, I am convinced that no one loses anyone, because no one owns anyone. That is the true experience of freedom: having the most important thing in the world without owning it.
God is really only another artist. He invented the giraffe, the elephant, and the cat. He has no real style. He just keeps on trying other things.
An association of men who will not quarrel with one another is a thing which has never yet existed, from the greatest confederacy of nations down to a town meeting or a vestry.
The truth is I love being alive. And I love feeling free. So if I can't have those things then I feel like a caged animal and I'd rather not be in a cage. I'd rather be dead. And it's real simple. And I think it's not that uncommon.
Women were real box office stars in the '40s, more so than men. People loved to see women's films. I think it was better then, except for the studio system.
Ordinary riches can be stolen; real riches cannot. In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you.
What constitutes a real, live human being is more of a mystery than ever these days, and men each one of whom is a valuable, unique experiment on the part of nature are shot down wholesale.
To have dominion by religion, is to have dominion over men's souls, thus over their very spiritual life, and to use the Divine things, which are in their religion, as the means.
God is really only another artist. He invented the giraffe, the elephantand the cat. He has no real style, He just goes on trying other things.
Well, most men have bound thier eyes with one or another handkerchief, and attached themselves to some one of these communities of opinion.? This conformity makes them not false in a few particulars, author of a few lies, but false in all particulars.? Thier every? truth is not quite true.? Thier two is not the? real two, thier four is not the real four; so that every word they say chagrins us and we know not where to begin to set them right.?Meantime nature is not slow to equip us in the prison uniform of the party to which we adhere.? We come to wear one cut of face and figure, and aquire, by degrees, the gentlest asinine expression.
Men love war because it allows them to look serious. Because it is the one thing that stops women laughing at them.
I do not wish to treat friendships daintily, but with the roughest courage. When they are real, they are not glass threads or frost-work, but the solidest thing we know.
You should read history and look at ostracism, persecution, martyrdom, and that kind of thing. They always happen to the best men, you know.
We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.
If you think that by threatening me you can get me to do what you want... well, that's where you're right. But - and I am only saying this because I care - there's a lot of decaffeinated brands on the market that are just as tasty as the real thing.
