Famous quotes containing the words playing game, role, game, escape, reality and/or playing:

    In time, after a dozen years of centering their lives around the games boys play with one another, the boys’ bodies change and that changes everything else. But the memories are not erased of that safest time in the lives of men, when their prime concern was playing games with guys who just wanted to be their friendly competitors. Life never again gets so simple.

    The role of the intelligence—that part of us which affirms and denies and formulates opinions—is merely to submit.
    Simone Weil (1909–1943)

    In the game of “Whist for two,” usually called “Correspondence,” the lady plays what card she likes: the gentleman simply follows suit. If she leads with “Queen of Diamonds,” however, he may, if he likes, offer the “Ace of Hearts”: and, if she plays “Queen of Hearts,” and he happens to have no Heart left, he usually plays “Knave of Clubs.”
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)

    Perhaps I am no one.
    True, I have a body
    and I cannot escape from it.
    I would like to fly out of my head,
    but that is out of the question.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Religion is the dream of the human mind. But even in dreams we do not find ourselves in emptiness or in heaven, but on earth, in the realm of reality; we only see real things in the entrancing splendor of imagination and caprice, instead of in the simple daylight of reality and necessity.
    Ludwig Feuerbach (1804–1872)

    A lifetime [or, eternity] is a child playing, playing checkers; the kingdom belongs to a child.
    Heraclitus (c. 535–475 B.C.)
