Spinning

Famous quotes containing the word spinning:

    The end of all stories, even if the writer forebears to mention it, is death, which is where time stops short. Sheherezade knew this, which is why she kept on spinning another story out of the bowels of the last one, never coming to a point where she could say: “This is the end.” Because it would have been.
    Angela Carter (1940–1992)

    Other countries drink to get drunk, and this is accepted by everyone; in France, drunkenness is a consequence, never an intention. A drink is felt as the spinning out of a pleasure, not as the necessary cause of an effect which is sought: wine is not only a philtre, it is also the leisurely act of drinking.
    Roland Barthes (1915–1980)

    “Reason is an exception in me, too,” said Zarathustra: “Chaos and necessity and spinning stars—that is also the rule in the wisest world.”
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
