Famous quotes containing the words myths, spoken and/or word:

    ... suffering does not ennoble. It destroys. To resist destruction, self-hatred, or lifelong hopelessness, we have to throw off the conditioning of being despised, the fear of becoming the they that is talked about so dismissively, to refuse lying myths and easy moralities, to see ourselves as human, flawed, and extraordinary. All of us—extraordinary.
    Dorothy Allison (b. 1949)

    Whatever is spoken of acquires a certain existence.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    Hardly had the glow been kindled by some good deed on your part or by some little triumph over your rivals or by a word of praise from your parents or mentors when it would begin to cool and fade leaving you in a very short time as chill and dim as before.
    Samuel Beckett (1906–1989)
