Favorite Friends Taking Different Paths Quotes

1. "No time for books, no patience. What good would they do? They don't tell you how to survive." "No, they don't do that. They are reason, not tool." Vadim smirked. "They hold more truth than Pravda. Politburo can't lie in Pushkin. Pushkin was there before we became Soviets. It means…if we have past, we have future." (…) "At least I know that there are many truths. It's about learning to think different thoughts. Know things that you never felt. You could know what being rich feels like, or being in love, without ever getting real feeling."
Author: Aleksandr Voinov

Have you ever wondered why we [women] are not just in armed combat against you? It's not because there's a shortage of kitchen knives in this country.

Author: Andrea Dworkin
3. "It's just that you're about to do something out of the ordinary. And after you do something like that, the everyday look of things might seem to change a little. Things may look different to you than they did before. But don't let appearances fool you. There's always only one reality."

4. "Page 142: "When a spouse says to the alcoholic, "you need to go to AA," that is obviously not true. The addict feels no need to do that at all, and isn't. But when she says, "I am moving out and will be open to getting back together when you are getting treatment for your addiction," then all of a sudden the addict feels "I need to get some help or I am going to lose my marriage." The need has been transferred. It is the same with any kind of problematic behavior of a person who is not taking feedback and ownership. The need and drive to do something about it must be transferred to that person, and that is done through having consequences that finally make him feel the pain instead of others. When he feels the pain, he will feel the need to change...A plan that has hope is one that limits your exposure to the foolish person's issues and forces him to feel the consequences of his performance so that he might have hope of waking up and changing."
Author: Henry Cloud

6. "Children being children, however, the grotesque Hopping Pot had taken hold of their imaginations. The solution was to jettison the pro-Muggle moral but keep the warty cauldron, so by the middle of the sixteenth century a different version of the tale was in wide circulation among wizarding families. In the revised story, the Hopping Pot protects an innocent wizard from his torch-bearing, pitchfork-toting neighbours by chasing them away from the wizard's cottage, catching them and swallowing them whole."
Author: J.K. Rowling
7. "I realized as I walked through the neighborhood how each house could contain a completely different reality. In a single block, there could be fifty separate worlds. Nobody ever really knew what was going on just next door."
Author: Janet Fitch
8. "My new employer made me get a drug test, so I ripped off my shirt, flexed my muscles, and said, "You suspect me of taking steroids, don't you?"
Author: Jarod Kintz
9. "I have always stuck to my guns about what I want from the work and what interests me. I've never been seduced down the evil path. The path of taking the money."
Author: Joel Edgerton
10. "Be prepared,' that's my motto." He smiled smugly at me. "That, and 'Sleep whenever possible.' Oh, and 'If you don't notice it's gone, what's the harm in me taking it?"
Author: Kiersten White
11. "A 65 year old woman questioning herself is no different than a 15 year old girl launching herself."

Author: Megan Fox
14. "We'd hoped vaguely to fall in love but hadn't worried much about it, because we'd thought we had all the time in the world. Love had seemed so final and so dull -- love was what ruined our parents. Love had delivered them to a life of mortgage payments and householdrepairs; to unglamorous jobs and the flourescent aisles of a supermarket at two in the afternoon. We'd hoped for love of a different kind, love that knew and forgave our human frailty but did not miniaturize our grander ideas of ourselves. It sounded possible. If we didn't rush or grab, if we didn't panic, a love both challenging and nurturing might appear. If the person was imaginable, then the person could exist."
Author: Michael Cunningham
15. "For My Dad ~ "I miss you every day." Lost love is still love, Eddie. It just takes a different form, that's all. You can't hold their hand... You can't tousle their hair... But when those senses weaken another one comes to life... Memory... Memory becomes your partner. You hold it... you dance with it... Life has to end, Eddie... Love doesn't."
Author: Mitch Albom
16. "We fight the same and we love the same. Just because we are different does not mean that we aren't equal."
Author: Natalie Crown
17. "It is the reader who comes to complete the work and to close, albeit temporarily, the world that it opens, and the reader does this in a different way every time."
Author: Pierre Bayard
18. "I spent a lot of years on the road, and what happens is you find out who your real friends are and you find out where your strengths and weaknesses lie in communication. I've had the same friends for 20 years now and I can count them on one hand."
Author: Sarah McLachlan
19. "As I look upon life and within myself I see two different realities, one is where everything is affected by the actions and choices of others and the other reality I see is where I am the creator and so nothing is affected but everything is connected wholehearted and lovingly by a vibrant and energetic core that I know emanates from a center where everything is possible because of the creative and all powerful force I have within me. This force radiates stronger and stronger from a place of Unconditional Love where All I see is Joy and Beauty unfolding and all I feel is Peace and Bliss on every level. Everything is AS IS and I am the "I AM". I SEE ONE HEART! ONE LOVE! ONE LIFE! Lets LIVE as ONE and LOVE as ONE so we can BE ONE!"
Author: Sean D. Hamilton
20. "The most valuable lesson I've ever learned in my life is that life is about family and friends, not about material things or any of that. It's about enjoying your life. If you have no family, no friends to enjoy it with, it don't matter how much you have, how much success you have, how much fame you have, how much money you have, it doesn't matter."
Author: Vanilla Ice
21. "What if this was a sign? Maybe I'm not supposed to be an Outsider.He surprised her by taking her hand and threading his fingers through hers. "You already are an Outsider. You fit everywhere. You just don't see it yet."She stared at their hands. He'd never done that before.Roar gave her a droll look. "It's just odd having you lay your hand on my arm all the time," he said, responding to her thoughts.Yes, but this feels intimate. Don't you think it does? I don't mean that I think we're being too intimate. I guess I do. Roar, sometimes it's really hard to get used to this.Roar flashed a grin. "Aria, this isn't intimate. If I were being intimate with you, trust me, you'd know."She rolled her eyes. Next time you say something like that, you should toss a red rose and then leave with a swish of your cape."
Author: Veronica Rossi
22. "The Count was Prince Humperdink's only confidant. His last name was Rugen, but no one needed to use it - he was the only Count in the country, the title having been bestowed by the Prince as a birthday present some years before, the happening taking place, naturally, at one of the Countess' parties."
Author: William Goldman
23. "I," she [the Holy Spirit] opened her hands to include Jesus and Papa, "I am a verb. I am that I am. I will be who I will be. I am a verb! I am alive, dynamic, ever active and moving. I am a being verb. And as my very essence is a verb, I am more attuned to verbs than nouns. Verbs such as confessing, repenting, living, loving, responding, growing, reaping, changing, sowing, running, dancing, singing, and on and on. Humans, on the other hand, have a knack for taking a verb that is alive and full of grace and turning it into a dead noun or principle that reeks of rules. Nouns exist because there is a created universe and physical reality, but the universe is only a mass of nouns, it is dead. Unless 'I am' there are no verbs and verbs are what makes the universe alive."
