Bec Botefuhr Quotes

"You wont always spoil her .or treat her like a princess.You wont tell her shes beautiful everyday.You wont make her smile every night and you wont always want her the way you do now.That fades.Those giddy little stomach flutters fade and youre then left with reality.There will be days you will forget to tell her shes beautiful,even though she needs to hear it.There will be days youll to say i love you.There will be days youll forget a birthday or an anniversary.There will be a time when she will walk past you and you won;t want to ravish her, the way you do now.Those things fade, and when they do, whats left is whats truly worth fighting for Love isnt always beautiful, heck,its not even close to being perfect half the time,feelings change, the spark dies down and what youre left with is something you either chose to fight for you dont When you know that even through those things are gone,youre still willing to fight for every breath ,then you know the love is real."

Quotes About Weed And Peace

"I still remember our first meeting, when Albers brought him to my house. On the little carriage which carried him from the station, and which was hardly built with such loads in mind, sat a massive figure who appeared even more enormous by virtue of the thick overcoat he wore. Everything about him had the effect of extraordinary permanence and solidity: the deep bass voice; the tweed jacket, already, at that time, almost habitual; the appetite at dinner; and at night, the truly Cyclopean snoring, loud as a series of buzz saws, which frightened the other guests at my Chiemgau country house out of their peaceful slumbers." - Author: Friedrich Reck Malleczewen

Quotes About Childhood

Quotes About Gradual Improvement

"Was there to be any end to the gradual improvement in the techniques and artifices used by the replicators to ensure their own continuation in the world? There would be plenty of time for improvement. What weird engines of self-preservation would the millennia bring forth? Four thousand million years on, what was to be the fate of the ancient replicators? They did not die out, for they are past masters of the survival arts. But do not look for them floating loose in the sea; they gave up that cavalier freedom long ago. Now they swarm in huge colonies, safe inside gigantic lumbering robots, sealed off from the outside world, communicating with it by tortuous indirect routes, manipulating it by remote control. They are in you and in me; they created us, body and mind; and their preservation is the ultimate rationale for our existence. They have come a long way, those replicators. Now they go by the name of genes, and we are their survival machines." - Author: Richard Dawkins

Quotes About Diamanda

"As they walked out onto Second Avenue, with David in a body bag, there was one last surreal moment. The singer and composer Diamanda Galás happened to be walking by. She and David had never met, but theyd spoken once on the phone. She shared his commitment to addressing AIDS, in her case through The Plague Mass, which showcased her five-octave range and fierce persona.Galás does not remember being on Second Avenue that night, but she made an indelible impression on Zimmerman and Glantzman.She had walked by, but as they were putting David into the hearse, she spun around and ran back, yelling, Who is that? Is that David Wojnarowicz? Zimmerman and Brown didnt answer. What Glantzman remembers is that Diamanda Galás was there at the door, screaming. As if our feelings were amplified, said Glantzman. Hysterical screaming." - Author: Cynthia Carr

Quotes About Art Masterpieces

"We are chained hand and foot by protocol, enslaved to a static, empty world where men and women cant read, where the scientific advances of the ages are the preserve of the rich, where artists and poets are doomed to endless repetitions and sterile reworking of past masterpieces. Nothing is new. New does not exist. Nothing changes, nothing grows, evolves, develops. Time has stopped. Progress is forbidden" - Author: Catherine Fisher
