Favorite Betrayal In The Tempest Quotes

1. "Maybe now I really understood why Elizabeth had run from me all of these months, why she would never allow herself to believe. A love as intense as the one we shared, one that had not dimmed through years of betrayal but had only grown, was terrifying. We had the power to destroy, to devastate and ruin, to lay the other to waste. But I wasn't running."
Author: A.L. Jackson

Author: B.G. Harlen

Facing his own worst fears, Nathan is hunter and hunted in a violent world at war."

A Survivor who has been raped will not necessarily be more damaged than a Survivor who has been touched. The degree of damage depend on the degree of traumatic sexualization, stigmatization, betrayal and powerlessness, the child has experienced. This in turn depends on a number of factors such as:* who the abuser was;* how many abusers were involved;* if the abuser was same-sex or opposite sex;* what took place;* what was said;* how long the abuse went on for;* How the child felt and how she interpreted what was happening;* if the child was otherwise happy and supported;* how other people reacted to the disclosure or discovery of the abuse;* how old the child was"
Author: Carolyn Ainscough

9. "For many people, life is full of pain, suffering. It doesn't consist of clear blue skies or fresh green grass that's always greener on the other side. It's filled with hardships, grief, betrayal, and death.These things define the human condition. They define the sort of person an individual grows up to be, once those tribulations have, for the most part, ended.But what truly defines you isn't the fact that you have seen death, known the feeling of betrayal by someone you trust, or watched as something you loved was ripped out of your hands.What truly defines you is the way you reacted."
Author: Dejana Vuletic
10. "For me, fiscal realism is not a betrayal of Labour values; it is the foundation by which we win the trust of the public."
Author: Douglas Alexander
11. "An important dimension of Tess of the d'Urbervilles is its debt to the oral tradition; to stories about wronged milkmaids, tales of superstition, and stories of love, betrayal and revenge, involving stock figures. This gives Tess of the d'Urbervilles an anti-realistic inflection. From the world of ballad and folktale Hardy draws such fateful coincidences as the failure of Angel to encounter Tess at the ‘Club-walking' on which he intrudes with his brothers, the letter to Angel that she accidentally slips under the carpet, the loss of her shoes when she tries to visit his family, and the family portraits on the wall of their honeymoon dwelling, as well as several omens. This chimes effectively with a world in which the rural folk have a superstitious and fatalistic attitude to life."
Author: Geoffrey Harvey
12. "The whirlwind of lifeIt was true. Sometimes life was like that, a wonderful whirlwind that fills us with joy, like a ride on a merry-go-round when we are children. A whirlwind of love and drunkenness when you sleep in someones arms, in a tiny bed, getting up for breakfast at midday because you've spent the morning making love. But sometimes a whirlwind destroys things, like a violent typhoon that tries to drag us down, when we have been caught by the storm, when we realize that we have to face the tempest alone. And we are afraid."
Author: Guillaume Musso
13. "Her antiquity in preceding and surviving succeeding tellurian generations: her nocturnal predominance: her satellitic dependence: her luminary reflection: her constancy under all her phases, rising and setting by her appointed times, waxing and waning: the forced invariability of her aspect: her indeterminate response to inaffirmative interrogation: her potency over effluent and refluent waters: her power to enamour, to mortify, to invest with beauty, to render insane, to incite to and aid delinquency: the tranquil inscrutability of her visage: the terribility of her isolated dominant resplendent propinquity: her omens of tempest and of calm: the stimulation of her light, her motion and her presence: the admonition of her craters, her arid seas, her silence: her splendour, when visible: her attraction, when invisible."
Author: James Joyce
14. "Love is understood, in a historical way, as one of the great human vocations - but its counterspell has always been infidelity. This terrible, terrible betrayal that can tear apart not only another person, not only oneself, but whole families."
Author: Junot Diaz
15. "I was now well prepared to be a career criminal. I had the proper training and a natural feel for the business. I had a respect for the old-liners like Angelo and Don Frederico. I had been a witness to both murder and betrayal and had my appetite whetted for acts of revenge.I just didn't have the stomach for any of it.I didn't want my life to be a lonely and sinister on, where even the closest of friends could overnight turn into an enemy who needed to be eliminated. If I went the way Angelo had paved, I would earn millions, but would never be allowed to taste the happiness and enjoyment such wealth often brings. I would rule over a dark world, a place where treachery and deceit would be at my side and never know the simple pleasures of an ordinary life. p368."
Author: Lorenzo Carcaterra

Author: Margaret Atwood
17. "Defeat I can endure with cheerfulness, my lady. But betrayal is like taking the wind from my sails, or the earth from beneath my feet. It chills my spirits like a rainy day, and all I can do is draw the curtains and cry into my pillow."
Author: Margaret George

Author: Raymond E. Feist
19. "Give me the storm and tempest of thought and action, rather than the dead calm of ignorance and faith! Banish me from Eden when you will; but first let me eat of the fruit of the tree of knowledge!"
Author: Robert G. Ingersoll
20. "There are only really a few stories to tell in the end, and betrayal and the failure of love is one of those good stories to tell."
Author: Sean Lennon
21. "Magine a trust in yourself, or another person, or in life itself, that doesn't need to be proved or demonstrated, that is able to contain uncertainty. People sometimes put their trust in a spiritual leader and are terribly betrayed if that person then fails to live up to ideals. But a real trust of faith would be to decide whether to trust someone, knowing that betrayal is inevitable because life and personality are never without shadow. The vulnerability that faith demands could be matched by an equal trust in oneself, the feeling that one can survive the pain of betrayal."
Author: Thomas Moore
22. "Bathed in shades of violet, she comes in the dark.Power unrecognized, half human, half mar.Born in lightning, anointed in tears,Magic abounds, while its painful heat sears.The battle draws ever closer and one side will fall.Good and evil collide, once and for all.The victor uncertain, as fate evens the scales. A winter storm's coming, a dark night's tale-A Tempest rising, without fail."
Author: Tracy Deebs
23. "She did it, though she hated opera. She hated everything about it. The overblown sense of drama. The violence and lewdness. No one had ever died of heartbreak in Reverie. Betrayal never led to murder. Those things didn't happen anymore. They had the Realms now. They could experience anything without taking risks. Now, life was Better than Real."
Author: Veronica Rossi
24. "God is not in a hurry. He kept Abraham and Sarah waiting twenty-five years before Issac was born, and Issac and Rebekah waited twenty years for Esau and Jacob, Jacob had to wait fourteen years to get the bride he really wanted, and then he had to serve six more years to build up his flocks so he could be independent, a total of twenty years. Twenty-two years passed between Joseph's betrayal by his brothers and the brothers' reconciliation in Egypt. God is not in a hurry because all His works are done in love. "Love is patient, love is kind" (1 Cor.13:4). Let's be grateful that God takes His time."
Author: Warren W. Wiersbe
25. "Worm or beetle - drought or tempest - on a farmer's land may fall, Each is loaded full o' ruin, but a mortgage beats 'em all."
Author: Will Carleton
26. "If after every tempest come such calms,May the winds blow till they have waken'd death!"
Author: William Shakespeare

Hayatin gereginden genis ve fazla oldugunu, kulagina hep en yüksek sayilari fisildadigini düsünüyor. Dokuz yüz kirk dört kadin diye fisildiyor mesela, altmis üç bin kitap, yüz bin deniz, bir milyon bira... Balkonda oturmus mutlu mesut çayini içerken, hayat daha böyle bir milya nefis çayin zarif bardaklarda onu bekledigini fisildiyor kulagina, yaninda da mercimekli köfteyle elmali kurabiye var, diyor. Hayatin bu manasiz, bu sinir bozucu zenginligi ve vaatleri karsisinda çildirip delirmemek için hayal kuruyorum, diye düsünüyor Cemil. O bulanik genisligi, o yankisiz boslugu, hayallerimin görsel yankilariyla doldurmaya çalisiyorum. Sahip oldugum seyleri küçümseyen, bana durmadan daha yasanacak çok sey oldugunu söyleyen hayat ile baska türlü nasil bas ederim? Ya böyle kendini hayallerle avutan biri olacagim ya da gördügüm her seye saldiracagim. Insan olmak ne zor sey!"
