Shannon Dermott Quotes

"Luke captured my gaze again and said, "If beauty were time, youd be eternity." My heart stopped. I was paralysed to look away from him(...)Thankfully, another senior boy who apparently wasnt dating anyone spoke. And when the words came out of his mouth, I understood why he was girlfriendless. "If you were a booger, Id pick you first."A lot of yuck and thats gross penetrated the tables atmosphere. A rain of crumpled napkins showered over the boy. Of course, all the guys laughed at him, including Luke, who was finally looking away from me.I was never so grateful for such a tactless comment."

Kate Braestrup Quotes

"Then light your candles to the living. Say your prayers for the living. Leave the stones where they are, but take your heart with you. Your heart is not a stone.

Victor Turner Quotes

"O comportamento ritual não só revela realidades práticas e mundanas, é também um teatro vivo da psicologia colectiva e uma das mais ricas expressões da ideologia e crenças - mentalidade - de uma sociedade. Afinal de contas, como os antropólogos notaram, a religião é mais do que um padrão de relações sociais: é uma expressão da capacidade humana para imaginar a estrutura da sociedade. O ritual religioso não é apenas construção cultural: é uma forma de cognição que constrói modelos de realidade e paradigmas de comportamento. E dentro deste processo pelo qual a realidade é definida, o ritual da morte joga um papel central."

Quotes About Well Dressed Guys
