Joyce G Baldwin Quotes

"Is it a time for you, you I say, to dwell in your roofed-in houses? (Haggai 1:4). The reply might have been that it was unreasonable to expect anyone to live in a roofless house, but the question made its point. What worth did they set on their God, when they left His Temple in ruins?"

Hannah Simone Quotes

Quotes About Self Love And Respect

"To have that sense of ones intrinsic worth which constitutes self-respect is potentially to have everything: the ability to discriminate, to love and to remain indifferent. To lack it is to be locked within oneself, paradoxically incapable of either love or indifference. If we do not respect ourselves, we are on the one hand forced to despise those who have so few resources as to consort with us, so little perception as to remain blind to our fatal weaknesses. On the other, we are pecularily in thrall to everyone we see, curiously determined to live out - since our self-image is untenable - their false notions of us..." - Author: Joan Didion

Quotes About Simarillion

"I did not buy a book called Lord Fouls Bane by Stephen Donaldson, which has the temerity to compare itself, on the front cover, to Tolkien at his best. The back cover attributes the quote to the Washington Post, a newspaper whose quotations will always damn a book for me from now on. How dare they? And how dare the publishers? It isnt a comparison anyone could make, except to say Compared to Tolkien at his best, this is dross. I mean you could say that even about really brilliant books like A Wizard of Earthsea. I expect Lord Fouls Bane (horrible title, sounds like a Conan book) is more like Tolkien at his worst, which would be the beginning of The Simarillion.The thing about Tolkien, about The Lord of the Rings, is that its perfect." - Author: Jo Walton

Quotes About Fashion And Shoes

"She realized now that she had been expecting old-fashioned instruments – pipes, fifes, fiddles and tinny drums. Instead there came the cocksure, brassy warble of a saxophone, the blare of a cornet and the squeak and trill of a clarinet being made to work for its living. Not-Triss had heard jazz with neatly wiped shoes and jazz with gritty soles and a grin. And this too was jazz, but barefoot on the grass and blank-eyed with bliss, its musical strands irregular as wind gusts and unending as ivy vines." - Author: Frances Hardinge

Quotes About The Start Of A New Month

"Losers with no imagination say that if you start a new school, there has to be a first day. How come they havent figure out how to be that? Just think existentially. All you do is take what is supposed to be the first day and bury someplace in the next month. By the time you get around to it a month later, who cares?" - Author: Francine Pascal

Quotes About Computer Mouse

"You can all supply your own favorite, most nauseating examples of the commodification of love. Mine include the wedding industry, TV ads that feature cute young children or the giving of automobiles as Christmas presents, and the particularly grotesque equation of diamond jewelry with everlasting devotion. The message, in each case, is that if you love somebody you should buy stuff. A related phenomenon is the ongoing transformation, courtesy of Facebook, of the verb to like from a state of mind to an action that you perform with your computer mouse: from a feeling to an assertion of consumer choice. And liking, in general, is commercial cultures substitution for loving." - Author: Jonathan Franzen

Quotes About Employees Appreciation

"I dont know about you, but Ive saved cards that old high school flames wrote me as well as those that employees have written me over the years. The power of genuine, customized appreciation will never lose its value, even in a gloomy economy... in fact, its probably what were all thirsty for in this desert of a depression." - Author: Chip Conley

Quotes About Prisoner Of Love

"True love, like any other strong and addicting drug, is boring — once the tale of encounter and discovery is told, kisses quickly grow stale and caresses tiresome… except, of course, to those who share the kisses, who give and take the caresses while every sound and color of the world seems to deepen and brighten around them. As with any other strong drug, true first love is really only interesting to those who have become its prisoners. And, as is true of any other strong and addicting drug, true first love is dangerous." - Author: Stephen King
