The holy stone looked for all the world like a small iron pineapple, its surface divided into squares by deep grooves, a tarnished silver-steel handle or lever held tight to the side. In ancient times the pineapple was ever the symbol of welcome, though the church used the objects in a different way. Apparently, each theological student of good family and destined for high office was given one on beginning their training and forbidden from pulling the lever on pain of excommunication. A test of obedience they called it. A test of curiosity I called it. Clearly the church wanted bishops who lacked the imagination for exploration and questioning.Mark Lawrence Good Apocalyptic Sayings By Mark Lawrence: The holy stone looked for all the world like a small iron pineapple, its surface
The truly apocalyptic view of the world is that things do not repeat themselves. It isn't absurd, e.g., to believe that the age of science and technology is the beginning of the end for humanity; that the idea of great progress is delusion, along with the idea that the truth will ultimately be known; that there is nothing good or desirable about scientific knowledge and that mankind, in seeking it, is falling into a trap. It is by no means obvious that this is not how things are.Ludwig Wittgenstein Good Apocalyptic Sayings By Ludwig Wittgenstein: The truly apocalyptic view of the world is that things do not repeat themselves. It
I'm also not an avid watcher of the show ['Walking Dead'] for no good reason. I think it's obviously a great show. I think it's a good comparison [to "Zoo"], because it is this apocalyptic world we're living in Season 2 of "Zoo."James Wolk Good Apocalyptic Sayings By James Wolk: I'm also not an avid watcher of the show ['Walking Dead'] for no good reason.
She's sweet but too apocalyptic. You try kissing someone good-night who's just told you for the umpteenth time that the world's experiencing its last disgusting paroxysm before Rapture.George Saunders Good Apocalyptic Sayings By George Saunders: She's sweet but too apocalyptic. You try kissing someone good-night who's just told you for
Famine, plague, death and war ... that's a pretty good description of 1917-18. The war was meant to end quickly, but by 1917 it seemed to be set until the end of time. No wonder everyone dreamed of an apocalyptic intervention.Philip Jenkins Good Apocalyptic Sayings By Philip Jenkins: Famine, plague, death and war ... that's a pretty good description of 1917-18. The war
I think it worked two ways. One, a lot of people writing about the movie used that as shorthand and it could either be a good thing or they could use it to dismiss the movie like we were a copycat movie or something like that. It's very much its own story. It is a young woman in a post-apocalyptic society, but after that it's just a whole different kind of story and a different journey that she goes through.Neil Burger Good Apocalyptic Sayings By Neil Burger: I think it worked two ways. One, a lot of people writing about the movie
L.A. in the late sixties had a desolation about it, a disquiet. More than anything, that had to do with a feeling, one that you still find in parts of the San Fernando Valley. There was a sense of apocalyptic expanse, of sidewalks and houses centipeding over mountains and going on forever, combined with a shrugging kind of anchorlessness. Growing up I was always aware of L.A.'s diffuseness, its lack of an attachment to anything other than its own good reflection in the mirror.Kim Gordon Good Apocalyptic Sayings By Kim Gordon: L.A. in the late sixties had a desolation about it, a disquiet. More than anything,
I am beyond good and evil at this point. I am beyond the lines drawn in the sand by society at this juncture. I am beyond fear, beyond religion, beyond the morals and mores. I am Lord of the Fucking Flies. Do you understand?Jason S. Hornsby Good Apocalyptic Sayings By Jason S. Hornsby: I am beyond good and evil at this point. I am beyond the lines drawn
Your mother hollers that you're going to miss the bus. She can see it coming down the street. You don't stop and hug her and tell her you love her. You don't thank her for being a good, kind, patient mother. Of course not
you vault down down the stairs and make a run for the corner.
Only if it's the last time you'll ever see your mother, you sort of start to wish you'd stopped and did those things. Maybe even missed the bus.
But the bus was barreling down our street so I ran.
Emmy Laybourne Good Apocalyptic Sayings By Emmy Laybourne: Your mother hollers that you're going to miss the bus. She can see it coming
I had a dream about you; you were a zombie in a post-apocalyptic world. I was the only human left, you tried to bite me and I said no. We became good friends.Rodney Jenkins Good Apocalyptic Sayings By Rodney Jenkins: I had a dream about you; you were a zombie in a post-apocalyptic world. I
It feels so good to find out I mean everything to the person who means everything to me.Leslie Lee Sanders Good Apocalyptic Sayings By Leslie Lee Sanders: It feels so good to find out I mean everything to the person who means
All the trauma terrorized her feelings. She sensed them harden. Fade. Vanish. Her emotions decayed and disintegrated like a waning timeworn woman would forget her own name and everything she loved. No, she thought. I won't let this happen. I will never stop feeling. No matter what. This is the bad news, she said. I must be insanely strong to survive this. This is the good news: I am insanely strong. She put on the protective suit. She will go outside.C.J. Anderson Good Apocalyptic Sayings By C.J. Anderson: All the trauma terrorized her feelings. She sensed them harden. Fade. Vanish. Her emotions decayed
-Are you afraid?
-No. Not even for the children. I always thought I would be frightened to death, but I'm not.
-Where's that spirit of self-preservation the scientists talk about so much?
-I don't know. You don't get too excited when you feel things are logical. This is logical. Nothing else but this could have happened from the way we've lived.
-We haven't been too bad, have we?
-No, nor enormously good. I suppose that's the trouble. We haven't been very much of anything except us, while a big part of the world was busy being lots of quite awful things.
-I always imagined people would be screaming in the streets at a time like this.
-I guess not. You don't scream about the real thing.
Ray Bradbury Good Apocalyptic Sayings By Ray Bradbury: -Are you afraid?-No. Not even for the children. I always thought I would be frightened
And yet a dream of God--THIS God--is no ordinary dream, nor night terror... It is an apocalyptic vision. As such it makes manifest what good people do not want to see, perhaps cannot see. It manifests above all that there is a tomorrow that no yesterday can dictate. But it does so with the ambiguity that accompanies every call to revolution. "The Reign of God is coming," it says, "and it is coming for you!Craig Keen Good Apocalyptic Sayings By Craig Keen: And yet a dream of God--THIS God--is no ordinary dream, nor night terror... It is

Rick Yancey Good Apocalyptic Sayings By Rick Yancey: Is this how humanity waves good-bye?Hell no.
Royal Young's memoir is about a dreamer, set in the post- apocalyptic celebrity world of today, and Young, who grew up in New York - like Holden Caulfield if he wanted to be famous - is looking for adventure and action and becomes entangled in all sorts of romantic and sordid relationships. He points out the perplexing tragedy (and good fortune, I think) of what it means to be talented and rebellious, but not a celebrity.Lily Koppel Good Apocalyptic Sayings By Lily Koppel: Royal Young's memoir is about a dreamer, set in the post- apocalyptic celebrity world of
In our confusion, we're accustomed to according the titles of good news and "a positive message" to the most soul-sucking, sentimental fare imaginable. Any song or story that deals with conflict by way of a strained euphemistic spin, a cliche, or a triumphal cupcake ending strikes us as the best in family entertainment. This is the opposite of apocalyptic. Apocalyptic maximizes the reality of human suffering and folly before daring a word of hope. The hope has nowhere else to happen but the valley of the shadow of death.David Dark Good Apocalyptic Sayings By David Dark: In our confusion, we're accustomed to according the titles of good news and "a positive
