Quotes About Amsterdam Travel

"So they were pen pals now, Emma composing long, intense letters crammed with jokes and underlining, forced banter and barely concealed longing; two-thousand-word acts of love on air-mail paper. Letters, like compilation tapes, were really vehicles for unexpressed emotions and she was clearly putting far too much time and energy into them. In return, Dexter sent her postcards with insufficient postage: ‘Amsterdam is MAD, ‘Barcelona INSANE, ‘Dublin ROCKS. Sick as DOG this morning. As a travel writer, he was no Bruce Chatwin, but still she would slip the postcards in the pocket of a heavy coat on long soulful walks on Ilkley Moor, searching for some hidden meaning in ‘VENICE COMPLETELY FLOODED!!!!" - Author: David Nicholls

Quotes About Peas

". Sometimes, but only for a moment, I saw a faint solitaryfigure with a Rosa veiled face, and carrying a faint torch, flit among the dancers, but like a dream within adream, like a shadow of a shadow, and I knew by an understanding born from a deeper fountain than thought,that it was Eros himself, and that his face was veiled because no man or woman from the beginning of theworld has ever known what love is, or looked into his eyes, for Eros alone of divinities is altogether a spirit,and hides in passions not of his essence if he would commune with a mortal heart. So that if a man love noblyhe knows love through infinite pity, unspeakable trust, unending sympathy; and if ignobly through vehementjealousy, sudden hatred, and unappeasable desire; but unveiled love he never knows." - Author: W.B. Yeats

Quotes About Followers Of Christ

"It is no great hermeneutic feat to recognize that Rome crucified Jesus because of His claim to be king. The charge was posted over His head, after all. What is often overlooked, however, is that it is precisely because of their allegiance to that king—Jesus—that Rome persecuted His followers.That the God of the Jews should father a son with magical powers was no more offensive to the Romans than the idea that Zeus should father Hercules. But what was intolerable was the fact that Jesus followers did not stop with recognizing Him as divine; they had the audacity to claim He was their actual sovereign.In short, while the Jews preserved their religion by shouting, "We have no king but Caesar," the early Christians sealed their fate by unabashedly declaring, "We have no king but Jesus!" - Author: Christopher Gorton

Quotes About Faithful Dogs

"Reason excludes faith," Alessandro responded, watching the blood-red mite as it made a dash for the rim. "Its deliberately limited. It wont function with the materials of religion. You can come close to proving the existence of God by reason, but you cant do it absolutely. Thats because you cant do anything absolutely by reason. Thats because reason depends on postulates. Postulates defy proof and yet they are essential to reason. God is a postulate. I dont think God is interested in the verification of His existence, and, therefore, neither am I. Anyway, I have professional reasons to believe. Nature and art pivot faithfully around God. Even dogs know that." - Author: Mark Helprin

Quotes About Slipping On Ice

"You really shouldnt have come," Lord Blackthorne said, his hand slipping across my faceto cup my jaw, fingers brushing my cheek. I shrieked, shrinking back and kicking at my captorwith stocking-covered feet. "Such a pretty child, in such an ugly place. Tell me, do you thinkyour dear husband would mind if I stole a kiss from the bride?"Kicking him in the shin, I spun, making him release me. I climbed off whatever Id landedon, aiming my palms out and wishing that I could see what the heck was happening. Flamesfrom dozens of candles blinked at me as they lit with the power of my mind. Lord Blackthornetouched my shoulder, his other hand curving around the bodice of my gown, toying with thebeading along the neckline." - Author: Cyrese Covelli

Quotes About Pairar

"Meu caro amigo (...), a vida é infinitamente mais estranha que qualquer coisa que a mente do homem possa inventar. Não nos atreveríamos a conceber coisas que são, afinal, lugares-comuns da existência. Se pudéssemos sair a voar de mão dada por aquela janela, pairar sobre esta cidade, tirar cuidadosamente os telhados e espreitar as coisas esquisitas que estão a passar-se , as estranhas coincidências, as maquinações, os objectivos cruzados, as maravilhosas cadeias de acontecimentos que vão funcionando durante gerações e levam aos resultados mais outrés, a ficção tornar-se-ia, com os seus convencionalismos e conclusões previstas, muito cediça e sem interesse." - Author: Arthur Conan Doyle
