Daniela Sacerdoti Quotes

"Shes my salvation. I burn, shes water; I suffocate, shes air – I can just imagine, when I am one with her, how light will flood my eyes, how the night will part and let me out into the day. When I break her, the light she has inside will come out, like a seal breaks to reveal the hidden message – and shell have to share that light with me. Ill be saved, and shell be the one who falls. Ill burn her down; Ill kill her and give her life again. Ill be true to her. Ill never leave her, never."

Quotes About Happiness And Friendship

"Dear friends, he began, there is no timetable for happiness; it moves, I think, according to rules of its own. When I was a boy I thought Id be happy tomorrow, as a young man I thought it would be next week; last month I thought it would be never. Today, I know it is now. Each of us, I suppose has at least one person who thinks that our manifest faults are worth ignoring; I have found mine, and am content. When we are far from home we think of home; I, who am happy today, think of those in Scotland for whom such happiness might seem elusive; may such powers as listen to what is said by people like me, in olive groves like this, grant to those who want a friendship a friend, attend to the needs of those who have little, hold the hand of those who are lonely, allow Scotland, our place, our country, to sing in the language of her choosing that song she has always wanted to sing, which is of brotherhood, which is of love." - Author: Alexander McCall Smith

Quotes About Civic Service

"There is only one Education, and it has only one goal: the freedom of the mind. Anything that needs an adjective, be it civics education, or socialist education, or Christian education, or whatever-you-like education, is not education, and it has some different goal. The very existence of modified "educations" is testimony to the fact that their proponents cannot bring about what they want in a mind that is free. An "education" that cannot do its work in a free mind, and so must "teach" by homily and precept in the service of these feelings and attitudes and beliefs rather than those, is pure and unmistakable tyranny." - Author: Richard Mitchell
