Few quotes by Iris Murdoch :)

-Happiness is a matter of one's most ordinary and everyday mode of consciousness being busy and lively and unconcerned with self.
-Between saying and doing, many a pair of shoes is worn out.
-I think being a woman is like being Irish. Everyone says you're important and nice, but you take second place all the same.
-In philosophy if you aren't moving at a snail's pace you aren't moving at all.
-Anything that consoles is fake.
-Being good is just a matter of temperament in the end.
-Falling out of love is chiefly a matter of forgetting how charming someone is.
-Human affairs are not serious, but they have to be taken seriously.
-I daresay anything can be made holy by being sincerely worshipped.
-Love is the difficult realization that something other than oneself is real.
-One doesn't have to get anywhere in a marriage. It's not a public conveyance.
-Philosophy! Empty thinking by ignorant conceited men who think they can digest without eating!
-The cry of equality pulls everyone down.
-We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.
-We defend ourself with descriptions and tame the world by generalizing

Yea...the pic is a wildflower. Its some sort of propagative grass-like plant. The leaves and flowers look so simple, like from a child's painting! aint it? :D

Very nice set of quote, i liked the one on women most, very witty and very true! In fact in most places the nice and important adjectives are not even used!

The cry of equality pulls everyone down.
even then also, everyone is equal!!
