"When your last breath arrives, Grammar can do nothing."

Zeena Schreck Quotes

"One example of an uniquely Sethian approach towards initiation is for the initiate to regard his or her own life with the same urgency and need experienced as in a war zone in which every move and action must be weighed yet determined swiftly, as necessity dictates. During battle, situations such as missed opportunity, lingering sentimentality, second or third chances, or excessive contemplation would be fatal; and so it is on the sinister path."

Rob Bell Quotes

"When Isaiah predicted that spears would become pruning hooks, thats a reference to cultivating. Pruning and trimming and growing and paying close attention to the plants and whether theyre getting enough water and if their roots are deep enough. Soil under the fingernails, grapes being trampled under bare feet, fingers sticky from handling fresh fruit. Its that green stripe you get around the sole of your shoes when you mow the lawn. Life in the age to come. Earthy."

Claude Vorilhon Quotes

"To live forever should not be an obligation. In fact, eternal life should only be for those who wish for it, because if we are depressed and unhappy with our lives, just the idea of living forever is an unbearable source of suffering."

Renee Gladman Quotes

"This is my mind. Only I have the right to be here."

Maria Elena Walsh Quotes

"Vivimos entre libros, hemos tenido la libertad de elegirlos y la posibilidad de descifrarlos en una era en que la instrucción fue (casi) universal. No ncesitamos ser monjes ni damas de la nobleza y si pertenecemos a una cofradía no es la del poder ni la del dogma, simplemente hemos sido elegidos por los libros a temprana edad. Bendito sea un privilegio desinteresado, no esgrimido para someter a los diferentes,"

Rolf Edberg Quotes

"In still moments by the sea life seems large-drawn and simple. It is there we can see into ourselves."

Quotes About Hallows Eve

"The evening before I departed I stood on the rim of a lagoon on Isla Rabida. Flamingos rode on its dark surface like pink swans, apparently asleep. Small, curved feathers, shed from their breasts, drifted away from them over the water on a light breeze. I did not move for an hour. It was a moment of such peace, every troubled thread in a human spirit might have uncoiled and sorted itself into a graceful order. Other flamingos stood in the shallows with diffident elegance in the falling light, not feeding but only staring off toward the ocean. They seemed a kind of animal I had never quite seen before." - Author: Barry Lopez

Quotes About Sleeping Time

"My cousin Helen, who is in her 90s now, was in the Warsaw ghetto during World War II. She and a bunch of the girls in the ghetto had to do sewing each day. And if you were found with a book, it was an automatic death penalty. She had gotten hold of a copy of ‘Gone With the Wind, and she would take three or four hours out of her sleeping time each night to read. And then, during the hour or so when they were sewing the next day, she would tell them all the story. These girls were risking certain death for a story. And when she told me that story herself, it actually made what I do feel more important. Because giving people stories is not a luxury. Its actually one of the things that you live and die for." - Author: Neil Gaiman

Quotes About Shoulders To Cry On

"Jonas went and sat beside them while his father untied Lilys hair ribbons and combed her hair. He placed one hand on each of their shoulders. With all of his being he tried to give each of them a piece of the memory: not of the tortured cry of the elephant, of their towering, immense creature and the meticulous touch with which it had tended its friend at the end.But his father had continued to comb Lilys long hair, and Lily, impatient, had finally wriggled under her brothers touch. "Jonas," she said, "youre hurting me with your hand." - Author: Lois Lowry
