Origine: I Am Legend , Ch. He knew he did not belong to them; he knew that, like the vampires, he was anathema and black terror to be destroyed. And, abruptly, the concept came, amusing to him even in his pain. A new terror born in death, a new superstition entering the unassailable fortress of forever.

I am legend. Take that last, now. According to legend, they were invisible in mirrors, but he knew that was untrue. As untrue as the belief that they transformed themselves into bats. That was a superstition that logic, plus observation had easily disposed of. Without a doubt there were vampire dogs; he had seen and heard them outside his house at night. But they were only dogs. Now I meet one and the first thing I do is distrust her, treat her crudely and impatiently.

And yet there was really nothing else he could do. He had accepted too long the proposition that he was the only normal person left. He had doubted too long. His concept of the society had become ironbound. It was almost impossible for him to believe that there were others like him. And, after the first shock had diminished, all the dogma of his long years alone had asserted itself.

To me, life after death and reincarnation are just slices of the pie. Life is a huge wheel and it goes around and around, and life after death is just a segment of that. It comes down to spiritual growth. I think that we keep coming back until we learn what we need to learn, until we get it right.

I think we've all lived hundreds, maybe thousands of times. That which you think becomes your world. It's only when we're alive and in this world that we have the chance to progress. From the state of the world today, we haven't made much progress. Percival, p. Mankind must establish a set of positive values with which to secure its own survival.

This quest for enlightenment must begin now. It is essential that all men and women become aware of what they are, why they are here on Earth and what they must do to preserve civilization before it is too late. Contesto: You never know, he thought. You just never know. You drift along, year after year, presuming certain values to be fixed; like being able to drive on a public thoroughfare without somebody trying to murder you.

You came to depend on that sort of thing. Then something occurs and all bets are off. One shocking incident and all the years of logic and acceptance are displaced and, suddenly, the jungle is in front of you again. Man, part animal, part angel. Where had he come across that phrase? He shivered. It was entirely an animal in that truck out there. When asked, "In your estimation, what does the supernatural genre tell us about ourselves as human beings? Salvation of the monk, he thought.

The drive had to go sooner or later, or no normal man could dedicate himself to any life that excluded sex. Now, happily, he felt almost nothing; perhaps a hardly discernible stirring far beneath the rocky strata of abstinence.

He was content to leave it at that. Especially since there was no certainty that Ruth was the companion he had waited for. Or even the certainty that he could allow her to live beyond tomorrow. Cure her? Curing was unlikely. Something with no framework or credulity, something that had been consigned, fact and figure, to the pages of imaginative literature. A tenuous legend passed from century to century.

Well, it was true. I always wanted to write a swashbuckler; I still do. I love Westerns. It had been written some time ago and rejected by every publisher, perhaps because I had been cast in the science fiction mold. I finished writing a combination western and horror story indigenous to the period.

And horror takes many forms: Indians had their own superstitions based on things that they didn't understand. In a way, I like to be confusing by combining genres. I've always been fascinated by parapsychology, and I think that we've all lived before.

In "The Path" I've explored that and a few other age-old questions like why are we here and what's our purpose in life. Io sono leggenda Richard Matheson. Affondare in quel coma orrendo, poi nella morte, e forse tornare per compiere vagabondaggi sterili, spaventosi.

Senza sapere cosa significasse amare ed essere amati. Una tragedia che superava quella di trasformarsi in vampiro. Non si udiva altro che il suono dei suoi passi e il canto degli uccelli. Per Robert Neville esisteva soltanto il presente; un presente basato sulla sopravvivenza quotidiana, scandito dall'assenza di picchi di gioia o abissi di disperazione.

Sono a un passo dallo stato vegetale, pensava spesso. Fermati su questo momento sublime, in maniera che io possa viverlo per sempre. Almeno nella porzione di mondo che poteva sapere di conoscere. Ma in questo caso nulla che somigli neppure vagamente a qualcosa di nobile come la pace nel mondo. Help us translate English quotes Discover interesting quotes and translate them. Start translating.
