Famous quotes containing the word attracted:

    I am often attracted to people with whom I could not hold a five minute conversation.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    The satirist is prevented by repulsion from gaining a better knowledge of the world he is attracted to, yet he is forced by attraction to concern himself with the world that repels him.
    Italo Calvino (1923–1985)

    One cannot long remain so absorbed in contemplation of emptiness without being increasingly attracted to it. In vain one bestows on it the name of infinity; this does not change its nature. When one feels such pleasure in non- existence, one’s inclination can be completely satisfied only by completely ceasing to exist.
    Emile Durkheim (1858–1917)
