Ken Lukowiak Quotes

"We piled aboard the small chopper and after a bit of map pointing to the pilot we lifted off. "I love the RAF," said Jed."I love them too, sir," said I. After a short flight the chopper landed. We all got out and waved our thanks and farewells to the crew and Major Jenner checked his map. After a quick examination he announced that we had been dropped in the wrong place."I fucking hate the RAF," said Jed."I fucking hate them too, sir," said I."

Liv Arnesen Quotes

"I know many people who believe in God, and I expected to find Him on my way to the South Pole if he exists. My religious experiences were very different however, [only] involving myself, nature and the universe."

Richard Powers Quotes

"He will love this music to death. In a few more years, hell snort at its sentiment and mock its stirring progressions. Once youve loved like that, the only safe haven is resentment."

Aleida March Quotes

"Surprisingly, I came closer to really knowing myself, not because I feared death, because we were always aware of it, but rather because I was always challenging myself about what had led me there and about how strong my commitment really was."

James J Freeland Quotes

Michelle Cook Hall Quotes

"Fear will paralyze you and prohibit growth"

Joanne Froggatt Quotes

"In true-life dramas, you have to do so much research. Its a big responsibility to make sure things are as correct as possible. In Robin Hood, you have more artistic license - its all action, adventure and reaction. This gives everyone a chance to make their characters their own and to make them believable."

Quotes About Agricultural Education

"Most people of my grandparents generation had an intuitive sense of agricultural basics ... This knowledge has vanished from our culture. We also have largely convinced ourselves it wasnt too important. Consider how many Americans might respond to a proposal that agriculture was to become a mandatory subject in all schools ... A fair number of parents would get hot under the collar to see their kids attention being pulled away from the essentials of grammar, the all-important trigonometry, to make room for down-on-the-farm stuff. The baby boom psyche embraces a powerful presumption that education is a key to moving away from manual labor and dirt--two undeniable ingredients of farming. Its good enough for us that somebody, somewhere, knows food production well enough to serve the rest of us with all we need to eat, each day of our lives." - Author: Barbara Kingsolver

Quotes About Someone Who Helped You

"She was someone who heard each grain in the hour-glass, she felt the passing seconds like sandpaper against her softest skin. Time actually seemed to hurt her, and people helped her get through it. [..] Sometimes it seemed to Nathan that her life was just that, a feat of held breath, just another ten seconds, just another five, and then death would flood her lungs like water, a string of glass bubbles to the surface and then nothing. She was scared in a way that he could understand. The kind of fear that sends you running across a six-lane highway or jumping into rapids. She was someone who ran towards her fear, screaming. Who tried to frighten it. Who, in another period of history, would have been worshipped as a saint or burned as a witch." - Author: Rupert Thomson

Quotes About Philip Marlowe

"The pebbled glass door panel is lettered in flaked black paint: "Philip Marlowe...Investigations." It is a reasonably shabby door at the end of a reasonably shabby corridor in the sort of building that was new about the year the all-tile bathroom became the basis of civilization. The door is locked, but next to it is another door with same legend which is not locked. Come on in--theres nobody here but me an a big bluebottle fly. But not if youre from Manhattan, Kansas." - Author: Raymond Chandler

Quotes About Getting Married In Vegas

"Something tells me theres more than one shaman in Vegas who performs weddings. I think were better off intercepting them at the fight.""But they could be getting married right now!" Ivy protested, falling into a double-time step to keep up with his pace."Lucky were in Vegas, then. They have quickie divorces to go with their quickie weddings." - Author: Linda Morris

Quotes About Mayans

"Evidence indicates that cats were first tamed in Egypt. The Egyptians stored grain, which attracted rodents, which attracted cats. (No evidence that such a thing happened with the Mayans, though a number of wild cats are native to the area.) I dont think this is accurate. It is certainly not the whole story. Cats didnt start as mousers. Weasels and snakes and dogs are more efficient as rodent-control agents. I postulate that cats started as psychic companions, as Familiars, and have never deviated from this function." - Author: William S. Burroughs

Quotes About Funny Scots

"A fellow who has a funny bone can learn to hone his skills, but I dont think you can develop a funny bone - you either have it or you dont. And by the way - when you get it, we dont know it." - Author: Carl Reiner

Quotes About Community Love

"The breakdown of the black community, in order to maintain slavery, began with the breakdown of the black family. Men and women were not legally allowed to get married because you couldnt have that kind of love. It might get in the way of the economics of slavery. Your children could be taken from you and literally sold down the river." - Author: Kerry Washington
