Sarah Skilton Quotes

"The idea was to anger the drama kids, not hurt any of them. Im not a deer hunter. I decided to prey on their most basic, cherished fear. "This play sucks! No one likes it. Not even the junior high bloggers will review this lame excuse for a Moliere," I yelled, and chucked tomatillos at the stager, over, under, and past the ducking, traumatized performers in French aristocrat costumes."

Quotes About Success Not Coming Easy

"The village lay in the hollow, and climbed, with very prosaic houses, the other side. Village architecture does not flourish in Scotland. The blue slates and the grey stone are sworn foes to the picturesque; and though I do not, for my own part, dislike the interior of an old-fashioned pewed and galleried church, with its little family settlements on all sides, the square box outside, with its bit of a spire like a handle to lift it by, is not an improvement to the landscape. Still, a cluster of houses on differing elevations - with scraps of garden coming in between, a hedgerow with clothes laid out to dry, the opening of a street with its rural sociability, the women at their doors, the slow waggon lumbering along - gives a centre to the landscape. It was cheerful to look at, and convenient in a hundred ways. ("The Open Door")" - Author: Margaret Oliphant

Quotes About Babies Hands

"Young women are closer to the time when they were manipulative and childish and they dont let their babies manipulate them as much as older mothers do. These are only my conclusions from watching children in grocery stores. I love to watch them work on their mothers to get what they want, and, because I am always a child, Im pulling for them to get the candy and to get it NOW. The other day I watched a little blond beauty pull her mothers face to her and lay her hands on her mothers cheeks and kiss her nose. Needless to say they opened the bag of cookies then and there." - Author: Ellen Gilchrist

Quotes About Being Defined

"Today, whats normal is being redefined: from vaginal birth to surgical birth; from My water broke, to Lets break your water; from Its time to Its time for the induction. As medical anthropologist Robbie Davis-Floyd writes, in the early twenty-first century, we do not know what normal birth is. Most practicing obstetricians have never witnessed an unplugged birth that wasnt an accident. Women are even beginning to deny normal birth to themselves: if normal means being induced, immobilized by wires and tubes, sped up with drugs, all the while knowing that theres a good chance of surgery, well, might as well just cut to the chase, so to speak. Just give me a cesarean, some are saying. And who can blame them? They want to avoid what they think of as normal birth." - Author: Jennifer Block

Quotes About Sample Success

"Kay Cannon was a woman Id known from the Chicago improv world. A beautiful, strong midwestern gal who had played lots of sports and run track in college, Kay had submitted a good writing sample, but I was more impressed by her athletes approach to the world. She has a can-do attitude, a willingness to learn through practice, and she was comfortable being coached. Her success at the show is a testament to why all parents should make their daughters pursue team sports instead of pageants. Not that Kay couldnt win a beauty pageant - she could, as long as for the talent competition she could sing a karaoke version of ‘Redneck Woman while shooting a Nerf rifle." - Author: Tina Fey

Quotes About Saving A Life

"Maybe, if I were very, very, very lucky, I would somehow be able to save Edward. But I wasnt so stupid as to think that saving him would mean that I could stay with him. I was no different, no more special than Id been before. There would be no new reason for him to want me now. Seeing him and losing him again . . .I fought back against the pain. This was the price I had to pay to save his life. I would pay it." - Author: Stephenie Meyer
