When middle age and increasing weight took their toll, she was able to segue into playing wry, wisecracking old dames. Many of her contemporaries fell by the wayside, but Joan stayed busy. She didn't maintain the high-profile popularity she'd had in the early 1930s, but she kept working, to critical acclaim."
Author: Eve Golden

Let every one follow his own inclination and habits; you cannot recast them, and the best course is, to let them be as they are and bear with them. Do not think it strange when you witness unreasonableness and injustice; rest in peace in the bosom of God; He sees it all more clearly than you do, and yet permits it. Be content to do quietly and gently what it becomes you to do, and let everything else be to you as though it were not."
Author: François Fénelon

"I consider that there's nothing wrong in believing in elves even though their names aren't on the parish register," he said. "It hurts no one, yes and even does you good rather than harm; but to believe in ghosts and ghouls--that I contend is nothing but the remains of popery and hardly fit for a Christian to give even a moment's consideration." He did his utmost to persuade the women to accept his views on these matters."
Author: Halldór Laxness
19. "We ourselves have so long ceased to use it [the Christian worldview] except for the discussion of the moral, the liturgical, or the spiritual, that it is rusty and out of date.

We have long ceased to bring Christian judgement to bear upon the secular public world."

20. "Por vezes o destino é como uma pequena tempestade de areia que não pára de mudar de direcão. Tu mudas de rumo, mas a tempestade de areia vai atrás de ti. Voltas a mudar de direcção, mas a tempestade persegue-te, seguindo no teu encalço. Isto acontece uma vez e outra e outra, como uma espécie de dança maldita com a morte ao amanhecer. Porquê? Porque esta tempestade não é uma coisa que tenha surgido do nada, sem nada que ver contigo. Esta tempestade és tu. Algo que está dentro de ti. Por isso, só te resta deixares-te levar, mergulhar na tempestade, fechando os olhos e tapando os ouvidos para não deixar entrar a areia e, passo a passo, atravessá-la de uma ponta à outra."
Author: Haruki Murakami

22. "If the artist does not fling himself, without reflecting, into his work, as Curtis flung himself into the yawning gulf, as the soldier flings himself into the enemy's trenches, and if, once in this crater, he does not work like a miner on whom the walls of his gallery have fallen in; if he contemplates difficulties instead of overcoming them one by one ... he is simply looking on at the suicide of his own talent."
Author: Honoré De Balzac

Author: Jane Austen

O el precio de saber que ella no era la dueña de su brillo sino cada uno de los seres que la soñaba, la deseaba, la idolatraba o la reprobaba, porque la belleza despierta sentimientos opuestos, también despierta prejuicios, despierta envidia y rabia, ese es el precio que se paga. Los ojos que la contemplan se creen sus dueños y por eso alguien puede llegar a decir, con veneno en la lengua: nadie es perfecto. Eso es cierto. Nadie es perfecto y ella tampoco lo es, pero hay que ver cuánto se acerca."
Author: Jorge Franco

"With your clothes. Before you get them off."
Author: Kelley Armstrong
32. "The church's first witness, as the theologian John Howard Yoder reminds us, is the way we live before the eyes of the watching world.4 You may recall that, two nights before the Passover, Jesus was having supper at the house of Simon the leper, when in walked a woman with an alabaster jar. She smashed it and poured its precious contents of nard—worth about $35,000 in today's dollars—over Jesus."

And in order to increase this heap of gold, one must be inflexible, a usurer, thief, extortionist, and murderer! And one must especially mistreat the small and the weak! And when this mountain of gold has been amassed, one can climb up on it, and from up on the summit, a smile on one's lips, one can contemplate the valley of poor wretches that one has created."

Only if we can understand this in the past, when the past is the present, we would be able to live every moment with satisfaction and joy. Only if we understand that the quarrels and miseries, the sadness and even the strongest of problems of the present will not matter to us in the future in a way they do now; we can be content with whatever our present holds in store for us."
Author: Q. M. Sidd
38. "What I see especially among the Navajos and the Zunis and the Hopis is a culture of people who have been smart enough to learn a lesson that we're awfully slow to get...

Author: Rachel Dickinson
39. "I know. And we have no does--not one--and no does means no kittens and in a few years no warren."It may seem incredible that the rabbits had given no thought to so vital a matter.

Author: Richelle E. Goodrich
42. "Don't panic. Midway through writing a novel, I have regularly experienced moments of bowel-curdling terror, as I contemplate the drivel on the screen before me and see beyond it, in quick succession, the derisive reviews, the friends' embarrassment, the failing career, the dwindling income, the repossessed house, the divorce . . . Working doggedly on through crises like these, however, has always got me there in the end. Leaving the desk for a while can help. Talking the problem through can help me recall what I was trying to achieve before I got stuck. Going for a long walk almost always gets me thinking about my manuscript in a slightly new way. And if all else fails, there's prayer. St Francis de Sales, the patron saint of writers, has often helped me out in a crisis. If you want to spread your net more widely, you could try appealing to Calliope, the muse of epic poetry, too."
Author: Sarah Waters
43. "The shortest route to wealth is the contempt of wealth."
Author: Seneca
44. "Mummy always told me, you should never let a man see your feelings or the contents of your handbag."

45. "Agriculture must mediate between nature and the human community, with ties and obligations in both directions. To farm well requires an elaborate courtesy toward all creatures, animate and inanimate. It is sympathy that most appropriately enlarges the context of human work. Contexts become wrong by being too small - too small, that is, to contain the scientist or the farmer or the farm family or the local ecosystem or the local community - and this is crucial."
Author: Wendell Berry
46. "In the history of science, ever since the famous trial of Galileo, it has repeatedly been claimed that scientific truth cannot be reconciled with the religious interpretation of the world. Although I an now convinced that scientific truth is unassailable in its own field, I have never found it possible to dismiss the content of religious thinking as simply part of an outmoded phase in the consciousness of mankind, a part we shall have to give up from now on, Thus in the course of my life I have repeatedly been compelled to ponder on the relationship of these two regions of though, for I have never been able to doubt the reality of that to which they point."
Author: Werner Heisenberg
47. "I contend that in the kind of nonfiction I write, and that other people also pursue, anything is permissible provided the reader knows what you're taking liberties with."
Author: William Least Heat Moon
48. "Not marble, nor the gilded monuments Of princes, shall outlive this powerful rhyme;But you shall shine more bright in these contents Than unswept stone, besmear'd with sluttish time. When wasteful war shall statues overturn, And broils root out the work of masonry, Nor Mars his sword nor war's quick fire shall burnThe living record of your memory. 'Gainst death and all-oblivious enmityShall you pace forth; your praise shall still find roomEven in the eyes of all posterity That wear this world out to the ending doom.So, till the judgment that yourself arise, You live in this, and dwell in lovers' eyes."
Author: William Shakespeare
49. "There will soon come an armed contest between capital and labor. They will oppose each other, not with words and arguments, but with shot and shell, gun-powder and cannon. The better classes are tired of the insane howling of the lower strata and they mean to stop them."
Author: William Tecumseh Sherman
50. "To the non-initiate, whose experience of sexuality and bodily pleasure may be distorted by negative cultural conditioning, the introduction of sexuality into a sacred context is often mistakenly misconstrued as the ordinary pursuit of sex for recreation."
Author: Zeena Schreck

Today's Quote

But we are pledged to set the world free. Our toil must be in silence, and our efforts all in secret. For in this enlightened age, when men believe not even what they see, the doubting of wise men would be his greatest strength. It would be at once his sheath and his armor, and his weapons to destroy us, his enemies, who are willing to peril even our own souls for the safety of one we love. For the good of mankind, and for the honor and glory of God."
Author: Bram Stoker
