"The smile upon my lips, 
It will surely never die 
As Im waiting here for you 
until youre by my side."

Nick Tosches Quotes

"To me, musics something I can dance to or listen to. To write about it is always more of what the music represents, or what it reflects. Like an ideal song, to me, is a song that you can dance to, that summons up some darker and greater mystery."

Tim Holmes Quotes

Janette Oke Quotes

"But If it is to be, or not, Thats all in Gods hands."

George R Price Quotes

"Believers in psychic phenomena... appear to have won a decisive victory and virtually silenced opposition.... This victory is the result of careful experimentation and intelligent argumentation. Dozens of experimenters have obtained positive results in ESP experiments, and the mathematical procedures have been approved by leading statisticians.... Against all this evidence, almost the only defense remaining to the skeptical scientist is ignorance."

Charles F Lummis Quotes

Quotes About Crying All Night

"Dear Eloisa (said I) theres no occasion for your crying so much about such a trifle. (for I was willing to make light of it in order to comfort her) I beg you would not mind it – You see it does not vex me in the least; though perhaps I may suffer most from it after all; for I shall not only be obliged to eat up all the Victuals I have dressed already, but must if Henry should recover (which however is not very likely) dress as much for you again; or should he die (as I suppose he will) I shall still have to prepare a Dinner for you whenever you marry any one else. So you see that tho perhaps for the present it may afflict you to think of Henrys sufferings, yet I dare say hell die soon and then his pain will be over and you will be easy, whereas my Trouble will last much longer for work as hard as I may, I am certain that the pantry cannot be cleared in less than a fortnight" - Author: Jane Austen

Quotes About Hayworth

Quotes About Definition Of Character

"In [Blooms] having managed to sustain his curiosity about the people and the world around him after thirty-eight years of familiarity and routine that ought to have dulled and dampened it; and above all in the abiding capacity for empathy, for moral imagination, that is the fruit of an observant curiosity like Blooms, I found, as if codified, a personal definition of heroism.Ulysses struck me, most of all, as a book of life; every sentence, even those that laid bare the doubt, despair, shame, or vanity of its characters, seemed to have been calibrated to assert, in keeping with the project of the work as a whole, the singularity and worth of even the most humdrum and throwaway of human days." Michael Chabon" - Author: Michael Chabon

Quotes About Luck And Happiness

"[My guru] says that people universally tend to think that happiness is a stroke of luck, something that will maybe descend upon you like fine weather if you are fortunate enough. But thats not how happiness works. Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it..." - Author: Elizabeth Gilbert

Quotes About Engage

"Jake knew that his mother had a tendency to mistake rules, her rules, for principles. She did not bend because she did not have enough confidence to know when or how far. She did not listen well because one ear was always otherwise engaged - either listening to what she herself had just said or what she would say next." - Author: E.L. Konigsburg

Quotes About Resistance

"He assaulted the man with a psychic wave. "You are a cockroach." In his inebraited state, Cody had no resistance at all to a vampire mind control.

"Hmm, about time you figured that one out," Fidelia steped back as he brushed against her long skirt." - Author: Kerrelyn Sparks

Quotes About Air Guitar

"She sank with an enormous sigh that carried all rigidity like a mythical fluid from her, down next to him; so weak she couldnt help him undress her; it took him 20 minutes, rolling, arranging her this way and that, as if she thought, he were some scaled-up, short-haired, poker-faced little girl with a Barbie doll. She may have fallen asleep once or twice. She awoke at last to find herself getting laid; shed come in on a sexual crescendo in progress, like a cut to a scene where the cameras already moving. Outside a fugue of guitars had begun, and she counted each electronic voice as it came in, till she reached six or so and recalled only three of the Paranoids played guitars; so others must be plugging in." - Author: Thomas Pynchon

Quotes About Painful Reminders

Quotes About Davin
