Jennifer Smith Quotes

"You are worthy! Let those words sink deep into your heart. You are worthy. Life can get overwhelming for us, as our busy schedules keep us on our toes. Sometimes we forget that we need to intentionally slow down, take a deep breath, and remind ourselves of our purpose, the very foundation of why we do what we do. When we neglect to quiet our souls and rest in Gods amazing grace, we miss out on the intimate opportunities where God assures us of our worthiness, clarifies our purpose, and strengthens us to endure each day."

Erica ORourke Quotes

"People fail each other all the time, Mo, and they forgive each other, and start again. Its a question of knowing the other persons limitations. Knowing whats fair to expect of them. Knowing whats fair for them to expect of you."

Melodie Ramone Quotes

". We were young. Love had a way of making us fearless because we knew that no matter what happened, if we fell on our face as we entered the ring or conquered the world in battle, in the end it would just be us, together."

Lillian Gish Quotes

"You know, when I first went into the movies Lionel Barrymore played my grandfather. Later he played my father and finally he played my husband. If he had lived Im sure I would have played his mother. Thats the way it is in Hollywood. The men get younger and the women get older."

Ian McMillan Quotes

" Id Better Not--A man leaned over to a man in a pubAnd said in a voice‘I used to be thirty seven but now Im fifty one.And thats how the years go.In handfuls.Like somebody is almost at the end of a bag of crispsAnd they tip the bag upAnd its as though theyre drinking crisps.Thats how the years go."

Ruth Bell Quotes

"If I marry: He must be so tall that when he is on his knees, as one has said he reaches all the way to heaven. His shoulders must be broad enough to bear the burden of a family. His lips must be strong enough to smile, firm enough to say no, and tender enough to kiss. Love must be so deep that it takes its stand in Christ and so wide that it takes the whole lost world in. He must be active enough to save souls. He must be big enough to be gentle and great enough to be thoughtful. His arms must be strong enough to carry a little child."

Ursus Wehrli Quotes

"One way to organize your thoughts is to tidy up, even if its in places where it makes no sense at all."

Quotes About Measuring Length

"So word by word, and line by line,The dead man touchd me from the past,And all at once it seemd at lastThe living soul was flashd on mine,And mine in his was wound, and whirldAbout empyreal heights of thought,And came on that which is, and caughtThe deep pulsations of the world,Æonian music measuring outThe steps of Time—the shocks of Chance--The blows of Death. At length my tranceWas cancelld, stricken thro with doubt." - Author: Alfred Tennyson

Quotes About Tiny Flowers

"And Ren cracked open a jewelry box.Two strands of tiny beads wound around each other in gold and blue. Small diamond and sapphire flowers ran down the length of the chain and in the center hung a diamond lotus flower with a ruby center. I pressed trembling fingertips to my lips as I recognized Kishans ring reworked into a new form.......I turned back to him and as he touched the beads along the edge, he spoke quietly, "Gold and blue tigers eyes to remember what was found." His finger trailed down to the lotus ruby in the center. "A diamond lotus and red ruby to remember what was lost". He slid two fingers up the length of the chain over the dozens of tiny blue flowers. "And sapphire flowers that symbolize what will be." - Author: Colleen Houck

Quotes About Different Subjects

"Let the tutor not merely require a verbal account of what the boy has been taught but the meaning and the substance of it: let him judge how the child has profited from it not from the evidence of his memory but from that of his life. Let him take what the boy has just learned and make him show him dozens of different aspects of it and then apply it to just as many different subjects, in order to find out whether he has really grasped it and make it part of himself, judging the boys progress by what Plato taught about education. Spewing up food exactly as you have swallowed it is evidence of a failure to digest and assimilate it; the stomach has not done its job if, during concoction, it fails to change the substance and the form of what it is given." - Author: Michel de Montaigne

Quotes About Looking Out For Yourself

"If all you do is look out for yourself, then... youre not really looking out for yourself. Taking care of those that love and care about you is critical. Living just for yourself is not really living.Im a scientist. Its not only a beautiful and rewarding way to go through life, its also Darwinian!" - Author: José N. Harris

Quotes About Sangha

"When we speak of the sangha, we speak of the "arya sangha," which means the "exalted sangha". At the time of the Buddha this referred to the arhats and bodhisattvas, the disciples who studied under him and achieved various levels of realization through their practice. But now who is the arya sangha? It is all of us, all of the practitioners of the present time. The moment we take refuge, which is to begin on the path, we hold the title of "sangha". As such, you should understand that you are one of the Three Jewels. You shouldnt put the Three Jewels outside of yourselves; you should always think of yourselves as being one of the Three Jewels—and that includes your body, your speech, and your mind." - Author: Dhomang Yangthang

Quotes About Famous Mardi Gras

"(And did I mention how in summer the streets of Smyrna were lined with baskets of rose petals? And how everyone in the city could speak French, Italian, Greek, Turkish, English, and Dutch? And did I tell you about the famous figs, brought in by camel caravan and dumped onto the ground, huge piles of pulpy fruit lying in the dirt, with dirty women steeping them in salt water and children squatting to defecate behind the clusters? Did I mention how the reek of the fig women mixed with pleasanter smells of almond trees, mimosa, laurel, and peach, and how everybody wore masks on Mardi Gras and had elaborate dinners on the decks of frigates? I want to mention these things because they all happened in that city that was no place exactly, that was part of no country because it was all countries, and because now if you go there youll see modern high-rises, amnesiac boulevards, teeming sweatshops, a NATO headquarters, and a sign that says Izmir...)" - Author: Jeffrey Eugenides

Quotes About Development Planning

Quotes About Global Issues

"The US is the most wretchedly villainous state of all times.
