Justin Dobbs Quotes

"Inside the room there sat a rocker, which she sat on, and which had rocked her while she sipped the beer, because in spite of herself she had become so giddy to have so quickly relieved her heart that she allowed herself to lean backwards while in the rocker, which had made it possible for the rocker to rock her, although it was not her intention to be so rocked. Also there stood an ironing board with a still hot iron on it that was burning a yellow shift, and there was, among several items that were not as noticeable to the woman, and yet were noticeable enough to at least bear mention, a fake man."I hope you dont mind me asking," said the woman who lived in the room, but then while in her chair she nodded off."

Vera Brittain Quotes

"Edward was always a good listener, since his own form of self-expression then consisted in making uneartly and to me quite meaningless sounds on his small violin. I remember him, at the age of seven, as a rather solemn, brown-eyed little boy, with beautiful arched eyebrows which lately, to my infinite satisfaction, have begun to reproduce themselves, a pair of delicate question-marks, above the dark eyes of my five-year-old son. Even in childhood we seldom quarrelled, and by the time that we both went away to boarding-school he had already become the dearest companion of thos brief years of unshadowed adolescence permitted to our condemned generation."

Miguel Serrano Quotes

"Words are really a mask, he said. They rarely express the true meaning; in fact they tend to hide it. If you can live in fantasy, then you dont need religion, since with fantasy you can understand that after death, man is reincorporated in the Universe. Once again I will say that it is not important to know whether there is something beyond this life. What counts is having done the right sort of work; if that is right, then everything else will be all right. The Universe, or Nature, is for me what God is for others. It is wrong to think that Nature is the enemy of man, something to be conquered. Rather, we should look upon Nature as a mother, and should peaceably surrender ourselves to it. If we take that attitude, we will simply feel that we are returning to the Universe as all other things do, all animals and plants. We are all just infinitesimal parts of the Whole. It is absurd to rebel; we must deliver ourselves up to the great current...."

Amelia Hutchins Quotes

"Ryder, we got a problem," Ristan called from beyond the other side of the etched-glass shower door."Someone had better be dying, Ristan," Ryder growled when hed pulled away from kissing me."They might be. You need to come see this.""We will be right there," Ryder called out as I slid down his hard body.He watched me with a smirk and then placed his hand on my arm to move me from beneath the water, so he could rinse off. I watched him, unable to pull my eyes off of his hands as they roved over his body.He was quicksand,and I was sinking."Did you say we?" Ristan asked.I blushed from my head to my Paint Your Toron-Toes Rose colored toenails. I opened the shower door and stepped out meeting Ristans eyes. "Dont ask.""How the…did you sift into his shower?" he asked, bubbling with laughter."I said dont ask! It wasnt my fault. I was sleeping!" I shouted as both men laughed even harder."Real mature, just real fucking mature!"

Quotes About Appearance And Beauty

"Beauty isnt just outer appearance. Beauty isnt just what your hair looks like, what your body looks like, how full your lips are, or how smooth your skin is.

Outer beauty only gets attention, but inner beauty captures the heart. Remember: Beauty is ephemeral, but inner beauty remains forever." - Author: Rose J. Bell

Quotes About Not Knowing What To Do With Your Life

"Knowing about God is crucially important for the living of our lives. As it would be cruel to an Amazonian tribesmen to fly him to London, put him down without explanation in Trafalgar Square and leave him, as one who knew nothing of English or England, to fend for himself, so we are cruel to ourselves if we try to live in this world without knowing about the God whose world it is and who runs it .The world becomes a strange, mad, painful place, and life in it a disappointing and unpleasant business, for those who do not know about God. Disregard the study of God, and you sentence yourself to stumble and blunder through life blindfold, as it were , with no sense of direction, and no understanding of what surrounds you. This way you can waste your life and lose your soul." - Author: J.I. Packer
