Fisher Amelie Quotes

"That girl was the real me. Frightened. Worthless. A terrible friend. Terrible daughter. Well educated but so limited in ideas worth having. Beautiful yet repulsive…And finally honest."

Colin Bord Quotes

"Allegorical stories of saints battling with giants, monsters and demons may be interpreted as symbolizing the Christians fight against paganism. At Bwlch Rhiwfelen (Denbigh) St Collen fought and killed a cannibal giantess, afterwards washing away the blood-stains in a well later known as Ffynnon Gollen. In Ireland, the tales of saints slaying giant serpents may have the same meaning; alternatively they (or some of them) may refer to early sightings of genuine water monsters. St Barry banished a serpent from a mountain into Lough Lagan (Roscommon), and a holy well sprang up where the saints knee touched the ground."

Cardinal De Retz Quotes

Georges Perec Quotes

"Çalar saatin çalıyor, kesinlikle kımıldamıyorsun, yatağında kalıyor, gözlerini yeniden yumuyorsun. Komşu odalarda başka çalar saatler çalmaya başlıyor. Su seslerini, kapanan kapıları, merdivenlerdeki hızlı ayak seslerini işitiyorsun. Saint Honoré sokağı araba gürültüleri, lastik gıcırtıları, vites değiştirmeler, kesik kesik korna sesleriyle dolmaya başlıyor. Pancurlar çarpıyor, satıcılar kepenklerini kaldırıyorlar.Kımıldamıyorsun. Kımıldamayacaksın. Bir başkası, bir benzerin, senin hayaletimsi, işine düşkün bir eşin artık yapmadığın hareketleri senin yerine, bir bir yapıyor belki: Kalkıyor, yıkanıyor, traş oluyor, giyiniyor, çıkıyor. Onun merdivenlerde sekmesine, sokakta koşmasına, otobüse tam kalkarken yetişmesine, söylenen saatte nefes nefese, neşeyle salonun kapısına varmasına ses çıkarmıyorsun.

Pablo Neruda Quotes

"Girl lithe and tawny, the sun that formsthe fruits, that plumps the grains, that curls seaweedsfilled your body with joy, and your luminous eyesand your mouth that has the smile of the water.A black yearning sun is braided into the strandsof your black mane, when you stretch your arms.You play with the sun as with a little brookand it leaves two dark pools in your eyes."

Leslie Vernick Quotes

"Dont get me wrong. A good marriage, adequate financial resources, even a clean home and well-behaved children do bring some measure of happiness. However, temporal blessings, as wonderful as they may be, are only a taste of the real thing. They cannot sustain inner happiness any more than eating a scrumptious meal keeps tomorrows hunger at bay."

Giovanni Falcone Quotes

"He who is silent and bows his head dies every time he does so. He who speaks aloud and walks with his head held high dies only once."

Quotes About Grasslands

"We do not need to plan or devise a "world of the future"; if we take care of the world of the present, the future will have received full justice from us. A good future is implicit in the soils, forests, grasslands, marshes, deserts, mountains, rivers, lakes, and oceans that we have now, and in the good things of human culture that we have now; the only valid "futurology" available to us is to take care of those things. We have no need to contrive and dabble at "the future of the human race"; we have the same pressing need that we have always had - to love, care for, and teach our children.(pg. 73, "Feminism, the Body, and the Machine")" - Author: Wendell Berry

Quotes About The Ocean In The Bible

"I say, White-Jacket, dye mind me? there never was a very great man yet who spent all his life inland. A snuff of the sea, my boy, is inspiration; and having been once out of sight of land, has been the making of many a true poet and the blasting of many pretenders; for, dye see, theres no gammon about the ocean; it knocks the false keel right off a pretenders bows; it tells him just what he is, and makes him feel it, too. A sailors life, I say, is the thing to bring us mortals out. What does the blessed Bible say? Dont it say that we main-top-men alone see the marvellous sights and wonders? Dont deny the blessed Bible, now! dont do it! How it rocks up here, my boy!" holding on to a shroud; "but it only proves what Ive been saying—the sea is the place to cradle genius! Heave and fall, old sea!" - Author: Herman Melville

Quotes About Not Satisfied

"More than a hygenic method of disposing of the dead, cremation enabled lovers and comrades to be mingled together for eternity:The ashes of Domitian were mingled with those of Julia; of Achilles with those of Patroclus; All Urnes contained not single ashes; Without confused burnings they affectionately compounded their bones; passionately endeavouring to continue their living Unions. And when distance of death denied such conjunctions, unsatisfied affections concieved some satisfaction to be neighbours in the grave, to lye Urne by Urne, and touch but in their names." - Author: Catharine Arnold

Quotes About Portia Her Father

"It will be full dark soon, and I do not like the look of that sky. The temperature is falling as well," he added, rubbing his hands together briskly. "I think we shall be in for a bit of snow from the look of the cloud just over the Downs." Naturally the gentlemen had to spend another quarter of an hour debating the weather as the ladies stood shivering, Portia rolling her eyes at me behind Fathers back. In the end they all agreed that, yes, it was indeed growing colder and darker and we ought to depart at once for the Abbey." - Author: Deanna Raybourn

Quotes About Paris Love

"Now you are walking in Paris all alone in the crowdAs herds of bellowing buses drive byLoves anguish tightens your throatAs if you were never to be loved againIf you lived in the old days you would enter a monasteryYou are ashamed when you discover yourself reciting a prayerYou make fun of yourself and like the fire of Hell your laughter cracklesThe sparks of your laugh gild the depths of your lifeIts a painting hanging in a dark museumAnd sometimes you go and look at it close up" - Author: Guillaume Apollinaire
