Quotes for Life

While chatting to your buddy at home or to your special someone, you then share them the well-known quotes you’ve observed in one of the movies. Having a celebrated line and quotes in the film made the movie a smash hit hit and some of them were  a classic.

We can always associate to these quotes, and that’s what made them famous. We used it in our daily lives and it affects the way we chat in a decent and amusing means. Say “I’ll be back” when saying farewell to a friend quoting Arnold Schwarzenegger in his film The Terminator (1984). “Life is like a box of chocolate, you’ll never know what you gonna get” is Forest Gump’s own expressions about life. Even the children in this day and age, they are able to quote the famous line of “Bond, James Bond”. To express frankness, why won’t you leave a quote from Gone with the Wind, “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn!” To increase more ambiance in a bunch of roses, why don’t you add a letter with a famed line from The Notebook “The best love is the kind that weakens the soul, that makes us reach for more, that plants fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds and that’s what you’ve given me that’s what I hope to give to you forever” and “love means never having to say you’re sorry” from the movie Love Story.”

In the other side of things, why won’t you add pizzazz to your life by calling your wife “My Precious” from the famed quote from The Lord of the Rings, but don’t forget the accent of Gollum! How will you react if you’re in a plane and the flight attendant just said in the PA “From Airplane (1980). How did men react when they heard one of the lines of Clue (1985) saying “Husbands should be like Kleenex: soft, strong and disposable”.

When you’re watching a movie, always watch for the lines that catches your interest, you may not be aware of, these lines will be popular in the yet to come. So keep tags whilst appreciating the movie, Asta la vista baby!

Still Life: 1970s Photorealism – The 1970s are Reborn at the Currier Museum of Art

Manchester, NH (PRWEB) January 09, 2015

Imagine paintings that look so real that the viewer feels as if they can walk into the canvas and back in time, or sculptures so lifelike that one would want to reach out and become part of the scene. Still Life: 1970s Photorealism, opens at Manchester’s Currier Museum of Art on January 24 and runs through May 3, 2015, takes the viewer back to a world filled with muscle cars, endless highways, diners, 1970s cityscapes and more. To those who lived through the 1960s and 1970s, these images will seem intensely familiar. The artworks that will be on view in this exhibition reflect a passion for hyperrealism and provide today’s audiences with an unflinching journey back in time to life 40 years ago.

“People are immediately drawn to these works of art,” said Kurt Sundstrom, Currier curator. “Most baby boomers will view this show nostalgically but everyone will appreciate each artist’s precision in creating these seemingly real scenes. The bottom line is that one can’t help but be fascinated when looking at this exhibition.”

In the 1970s, a loosely-knit group of primarily American artists including Richard Estes, Duane Hanson, Tom Blackwell and Audrey Flack decided that art should accurately reflect the world around us. Photorealists took photographs of commonplace scenes, some not even in sharp focus, and precisely revisited those captured worlds in monumental paintings and sculptures. Viewed from a distance, these works faithfully capture a scene, but as with impressionistic paintings, when viewed up close, the artist’s brushstrokes become easily visible. As with the Currier’s recent M.C. Escher exhibition, the deeper one looks at these works of art, the more dazzled one will be by the artists’ skills.

Still Life: 1970s Photorealism was organized by the Yale University Art Gallery in New Haven, Conn. and has been on view at the Nassau County Museum of Art in Roslyn Harbor, N.Y. It will include 37 works from the Yale collection and an additional six from the Currier. The Boston Globe, in its review of the Yale exhibition, called it, “thought provoking,” emphasizing the fascinating “tension between the there-and-then of photography and the here-and-now of painting.”

Exhibition Support

Still Life: 1970s Photorealism. Exhibition organized by the Yale University Art Gallery. Made possible by the Janet and Simeon Braguin Fund.

Bennett International Groups Annual Driver Appreciation Day Highlights 40 Years of Success


McDonough, Georgia (PRWEB) October 01, 2014

Shiny trucks, Atlanta Falcons Cheerleaders, a health fair, and much more were all part of Bennett International Group’s Annual Driver Appreciation Day held Sept. 19 at several locations across the U.S. including McDonough, Georgia, Rock Island, Illinois, Houston, Texas, Cleveland, Ohio, Waco, Texas, Bristol, Illinois, Chattanooga, Tennessee, Rancho Dominguez, California, Louisville, Kentucky, and Cincinnati, Ohio. More than 370 drivers attended the daylong event.

At the corporate office, located in McDonough, Georgia, the company unveiled the “Spirit of Bennett,” a one-of-a-kind custom designed and wrapped Kenworth truck commemorating the company’s 40th anniversary. The truck is a gift to the company owners and those who have contributed to the company’s success, and it serves as a constant, visual reminder of the company’s first 40 years. Members of the Atlanta Falcons Cheerleaders were on hand to help celebrate as the “Spirit of Bennett” took center stage and drivers and employees saw the truck for the first time.

David Pittman, chief operating officer and chief financial officer, said the truck was envisioned to mark the milestone and is a source of pride for all who are connected with Bennett.

“It’s a beautiful truck that everyone will be proud to see as it rolls down the road,” Pittman said. “It’s something we all share and another way to show others who we are as a company.”

In addition, signatures of current Bennett employees will be added to the design of the truck before it hits the highways.

Marcia Taylor, president and chief executive officer, addressed the crowd about the company’s new “Women In the Driver’s Seat” program. Bennett women drivers and women employees in company locations across the U.S. donned the signature “Women in the Driver’s Seat” blue shirts and visors. Taylor acknowledged Bennett owner operator Guadalupe (Lupe) Potter for being selected as the Women in Trucking Member of the Month for August 2014, and new members of the President’s Million Mile Club were also recognized.

Ellen Voie, president of Women In Trucking, joined the celebration to help kick off the Women in the Driver’s Seat program. She also made a special presentation to Potter for being selected as the Judges Choice winner in the Women In Trucking’s “I Heart Trucking” video contest.

During the festivities, drivers showed off their polished rigs in a “Show and Shine” contest. Winners were announced in four categories: Classic Truck – Ben Cadle, Work Truck – Guerin St. Hilaire, Show Truck – Chuck Malinski, and Viewer’s Choice – David Gruel. The winners were awarded a trophy and cash prizes.

A raffle was held with the proceeds going to Bennett’s Driver Relief Fund, a fund set up by drivers for drivers offering financial assistance during times of need. Several raffle winners won Pace Car Victory Laps and satisfied their need for speed at Atlanta Motor Speedway later that afternoon.
