2. "On breezy days when the wind was not too light and not too strong, Will and Pamela and the children flew their homemade kites in Peaceful Park until they were specks in the blue sky. When the wind was just right, the kites felt so strong and safe up there that Honor imagined nothing could budge them.'Ho bum," boasted Will, 'I could stand here all day and this kite would hold. It's like fishing.''Fishing in reverse,' said Pamela. 'Sky fishing.''What do you fish for in the air?' asked Honor.Pamela and Will started laughing. 'Oh, planets,' said Will. 'The occasional comet. An asteroid or two.'Honor held one kite string, and Will held the other. Pamela held Quintilian. On those afternoons, four did not seem like the wrong number for a family. Four seemed just right."

8. "I sat down and read out loud a statement on the box, a message from the Celestial realm.If I had my child to raise all over again, I'd finger paint more, and point the finger less. I'd do less correcting, and more connecting. I'd take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes. I would care to know less, and know to care more. I'd take more hikes and fly more kites. I'd stop playing serious, and seriously play. I would run through more fields and gaze at more stars. I'd do more hugging, and less tugging. I would be firm less often, and affirm much more. I'd build self-esteem first, and the house later. I'd teach less about the love of power, And more about the power of love.-Diane Loomans, Full Esteem Ahead"
Author: Carol Lynn Pearson

When did Tracy Morgan become Walter Cronkite? You have to mean something to me to offend me. You can't break up with me if we don't date."
Author: Chris Rock

Author: D.H. Lawrence

While his brain burrowed through rock toward a very specific knowledge goal, mine preferred to warren the air; his brain operated a drill bit while mine launched a thousand aimless kites that tangled strings or bounced along the invisible currents, disconnected and alone. Cognitively, we were the gravitational negatives of each other. Sometimes I wished I had his brain. But only sometimes. He suffered due to his specialized excesses; he just suffered differently from me."

I eat hair, dirty wax, dry blood clots, anything and everything you call yours. Show me your father, with his kites, his race horses, his free passes for the opera: I will eat them all, swallow them alive. Where is the chair you sit in, where is your favorite comb, your toothbrush, your nail file? Trot them out that I may devour them at one gulp. You have a sister more beautiful than yourself, you say. Show her to me-I want to lick the flesh from her bones."
Author: Henry Miller
19. "Csakhogy egy ilyen város mindig kitermeli az álmatlanjait; maga is álmatlan szervezodés, örökké éneklo vezetékekkel; sok millió lakója között mindig akadnak olyanok, akik kifelé bámulnak az ablakon; nem pedig alszanak, mint szoktak. És minden éjjel mások. Hogy most éppen o, és nem más, az mero véletlen."
Author: Ian McEwan

Author: Jaeda DeWalt

28. "Young friends, whose string-and-tin-can phone extended from island to island, had to pay out more and more string, as if letting kites go higher and higher. They had more and more to tell each other, and less and less string. The boy asked the girl to say "I love you" into her can, giving her no further explanation. And she didn't ask for any, or say "That's silly," or "We're too young for love," or even suggest that she was saying "I love you" because he asked her to. Instead she said, "I love you." The words traveled through the long, long string. The boy covered his can with a lid, removed it from the string, and put her love for him on a shelf in his closet. Of course, he never could open the can, because then he would lose its contents. It was enough just to know it was there."
Author: Jonathan Safran Foer

Author: Mariana Alcoforado
37. "Schoolboy days are no happier than the days of afterlife, but we look back upon them regretfully because we have forgotten our punishments at school and how we grieved when our marbles were lost and our kites destroyed – because we have forgotten all the sorrows and privations of the canonized ethic and remember only its orchard robberies, its wooden-sword pageants, and its fishing holidays."
Author: Mark Twain
38. "Landsman recognizes the expression on Dick's face...The face of a man who feels he was born into the wrong world. A mistake has been made; he is not where he belongs. Every so often he feels his heart catch, like a kite on a telephone wire, on something that seems to promise him a home in the world or a means of getting there. An American car manufactured in his far-off boyhood, say, or a motorcycle that once belonged to the future king of England, or the face of a woman worthier than himself of being loved."
Author: Michael Chabon

Author: Michael Ian Black

45. "I dreamed you a field of running horses, Selah. For you, Bianca, a balloon the size of the sky, my body a kite you can throw into the air.Pull me by string and horse.Tell me everything won't end in death. That everything doesn't end with February. Dead wildflowers wrapped around a crying baby's throat.I've slowed my heartbeat to three beats a minute.

It ended too soon and left nothing behind.""That's how it is with dreams," said Priscilla. "They're the perfect crime."

Author: Wendelin Van Draanen

Today's Quote

Niets waaraan mensen zich zo lelijk kunnen verwonden als aan het geluk van een ander.Dat iets moois je kwalijk genomen zou kunnen worden, als je jong bent kun je zoiets niet geloven. Dat iemand je de liefde misgunt, hoe kun je daarop bedacht zijn?De eerste tijd heb je het ook helemaal niet door. Omdat het in jou zo zingt ga je ervan uit dat iedereen meeneuriet. Dat ze meedeinen op jouw muziek. Dit is maar schijn. Door jouw roes lijkt het of ze tollen. In feite staan ze stil en ze zetten zich alvast schrap. Vroeger of later bots je in volle vaart tegen ze op."
