1. "The life I walk binds my hands it makes me take things that I don't understand I walk this dark world unknowing of what they hold true, forgetting the me I once knew, until you. The life I walk eternally was all I knew nothing more held me here to this earth until you. I feel the pain of every heart I take I feel the desire to replace all that I have grown to hate Darkness holds me close but the light still draws my empty soul The emptiness where I used pain to fill the hole no longer controls me, no longer calls me because of you."
Author: Abbi Glines
2. "The future wafts in and out of my world like a ghost - like a lumbering beast, begging to be tamed. For so long it sat locked in mystery, surrounding me, fickle as the wind. I see it now for the noose it is, the game that never satisfies, the warrior that always kills.The past proved to be set in stone, the immovable rock of my existence that cast its shadow into the valley of death. But it is the future's bright light that draws me in, the blinding rays that pull me forward with bionic, magnetic, force. They row me towards my destiny with indescribable power, to a fate questionably determined - washed in the patina of hope."

Meanwhile, the other leg draws a huge wide circle around the first one, constantly moving. Just like that, one part of my writing is based in Istanbul. It has strong local roots. Yet at the same time the other part travels the whole wide world, feeling connected to several cities, cultures, and peoples."
Author: Elif Shafak

And at the same time I fear to importune it too much, because I do not know what might happen then. I am a soldier, I must cling to that."
Author: Erich Maria Remarque

It sufficed for Tietjens to approach her to make her feel as if her whole body was drawn towards him as, being near a terrible height, you are drawn towards it.

Author: Ford Madox Ford

"His position at that moment was like the position of a man standing over a frightful precipice, when the earth breaks away under him, is rocking, shifting, sways for a last time, and falls, drawing him into the abyss, and meanwhile the unfortunate man has neither the strength nor the firmness of spirit to jump back, to take his eyes from the yawning chasm; the abyss draws him, and he finally leaps into it himself, himself hastening the moment of his own perdition."

19. "Oh, make no mistake. I am no callow, ardent youth. I am an elderly man, broken in health and body, and soon to die. I am a scientist and a philosopher. I, as all the generations of philosophers before me, know woman for what she is—her weaknesses and meannesses and immodesties and ignobilities, her earth-bound feet and her eyes that have never seen the stars. But—and the everlasting, irrefragable fact remains: Her feet are beautiful, her eyes are beautiful, her arms and breasts are paradise, her charm is potent beyond all charm that has ever dazzled man; and, as the pole willy nilly draws the needle, just so, willy nilly, does she draw man."
Author: Jack London

But then Nick pulls her closer, and she rests her head on his chest, and nothing seems more important that this right here."
Author: Jennifer E. Smith

Her yellow tennis shoes were covered with dog hair.Yeah, special was one word for her."
Author: Jennifer Shirk
23. "Since holiness is the main thing that excites, draws, and governs all gracious affections, it is no wonder that all such affections tend to holiness.

Those acts which men delight in, they necessarily incline to do."
Author: Jonathan Edwards
24. "War is thus divine in itself, since it is a law of the world. War is divine through its consequences of a supernatural nature which are as much general as particular.

For instance, that in all his life he never sees the day that he can satisfy one woman; also, that no woman ever sees the day that she can't overwork, and defeat, and put out of commission any ten masculine plants that can be put to bed to her. He puts those strikingly suggestive and luminous facts together, and from them draws this astonishing conclusion: The Creator intended the woman to be restricted to one man."
Author: Mark Twain

His real genius is to be found in his remarkable ability to synthesize the best thought of the whole Christian tradition and sift it with rigorous exegetical skill and evangelical instincts.

Author: Michael S. Horton

39. "Writting turns you into somebody who's always wrong. The illusion that you may get ir right someday is the perversity that draws you on. What else could? As pathological phenomena go, it doesn't completely wreck your life."
Author: Philip Roth
40. "Were it possible for us to see further than our knowledge reaches, and yet a little way beyond the outworks of our divinings, perhaps we would endure our sadnesses with greater confidence than our joys. For they are the moments when something new has entered into us, something unknown; our feelings grow mute in shy perplexity, everything in us withdraws, a stillness comes, and the new, which no one knows, stands in the midst of it and is silent."
Author: Rainer Maria Rilke
41. "Odd, the words: ‘while away the time'.How to hold it fast the harder thing.Who is not fearful: where is there a staying,where in all this is there any being?Look, as the day slows towards the spacethat draws it into dusk: rising becameupstanding, standing a laying down, and thenthat which accepts its lying blurs to darkness.Mountains rest, outgloried be the stars -but even there, time's transition glimmers.Ah, nightly refuged in my wild heart,roofless, the imperishable lingers.---Wunderliches Wort: die Zeit vertreiben!Sie zu halten, wäre das Problem.Denn, wen ängstigts nicht: wo ist ein Bleiben,wo ein endlich Sein in alledem? -Sieh, der Tag verlangsamt sich, entgegenjenem Raum, der ihn nach Abend nimmt:Aufstehn wurde Stehn, und Stehn wird Legen,und das willig Liegende verschwimmt -Berge ruhn, von Sternen überprächtigt; -aber auch in ihnen flimmert Zeit.Ach, in meinem wilden Herzen nächtigtobdachlos die Unvergänglichkeit."
Author: Rainer Maria Rilke

She reaches in, digs her hand deep into the ball, and pulls out a slip of paper. The crowd draws in a collective breath and then you can hear a pin drop, and I'm feeling nauseous and so desperately hoping that it's not me, that it's not me, that it's not me."

Today's Quote

He had never loved anything except what was inevitable. The people fate had imposed on him, the world as it appeared to him, everything in his life he had not been able to avoid...For the rest, for everything he had to choose, he made himself love, which is not the same thing. No doubt he had known the feeling of wonderment, passion, and even moments of tenderness. But each moment had sent him on to other moments, each person to others, and he had loved nothing he had chosen, except what was little by little imposed on him by circumstance, had lasted as much by accident as by intention, and finally became necessary: Jessica."
Author: Albert Camus
