Quotes About God And Friends

"What was meaningful? What was meaningless? What did it mean, to amount to something? What type of life, was worth living? Was it better, to make a ton of money, and have a fucking goddamn Mercedes, or whatever the fuck kind of car it was, to be a lawyer with a ‘serious job, and to have ‘amounted to something, or was it better to just be a waiter, and work the evening shift, and have your days free to goof off with your roommates, your friends, to go to meditation, to take some time to reflect, and enjoy life, and to not always be in such a big goddamn rush to get somewhere?" - Author: T.

Quotes About Dunnett

"(Dorothy) Dunnett is the master of the invisible, particularly in her later books. Where is this tension coming from? Why is this scene so agonizing? Why is this scene so emotional? Tension and emotion pervade the books, sometimes almost unbearably, yet when you look at the writing, at the actual words, theres nothing to show that the scene is emotional at all. I think it is because Dunnett layers her novels, meaning that each event is informed by what has come before (and what came before that, and what came before that) but Dunnett doesnt signpost in the text that this is happening, leaving it to the reader to bring the relevant information to the table" - Author: C.S.

Quotes About Retelling Stories

"Its corny, but I think poems are echoes of the voices in your head and from your past. Your sisters, your father, your ancestors taking to you and through you. Some of it is primal, some of it is hallucinatory bullshit. That madness those boys rapping aint nothing but urban folklore. They retelling stories passed down from chicken coop to apartment stoop to Ford coupe. Hear that rhyme, boy. Shit, I could get down and rap if I had to.

Quotes About Veronica

"I stood with my arms crossed, scanning the crowd. My eyes hated on a very tall gorilla looking in our direction. He bore a red badge on his furry chest. I had no idea how long we stared at each other, unmoving, before I lifted one hand in a wave."Who are you waving at?" Veronica asked me."Um, that big monkey. I think hes starting at...us."And at that moment, the gorilla lfited an arm and scratched his armpit. The silly gesture filled me with a rush of joy. But I wasnt going to him.I faced my friends, chewing my thumbnail. Please come over. When I glanced again, he was walking our way. Yes! My pulse went erratic." - Author: Wendy Higgins

Quotes About Price Tags

"Advising the average person to not concern herself with calories but instead to pay attention to hunger triggers and eating foods rick in nutrients--well, its a wonderful concept. I also love the thought of unicorns jumping over cotton candy rainbows. Im even considering taking up basketball to see if it makes me taller. Come on already! Suggesting that someone who struggles with his weight does not need to think about calories is as risky as suggesting you not look at price tags the next time youre in the market for a car." - Author: Chalene Johnson

Quotes About Last Place

"And you, Ring-bearer, she said, turning to Frodo. ‘I come to you last who are not last in my thoughts. For you I have prepared this. She held up a small crystal phial: it glittered as she moved it, and rays of white light sprang from her hand. ‘In this phial, she said, ‘is caught the light of Eärendils star, set amid the waters of my fountain. It will shine still brighter when night is about you. May it be a light to you in dark places, when all other lights go out. Remember Galadriel and her Mirror!Frodo took the phial, and for a moment as it shone between them, he saw her again standing like a queen, great and beautiful." - Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
