RA Salvatore Quotes

"Cook another feast, Bruenor grumbled. Suren the elf has his eye fixed on another wedding."Drizzt let it go at that. Maybe there was a ring of truth in Bruenors words for some distant date. No longer did Drizzt limit his hopes and desires. He would see the world as he could and draw his choices from his wishes, not from limitations he might impose upon himself. For now, though, Drizzt had found something too personal to be shared.For the first time in his life, the drow had found peace."

Elizabeth Kolbert Quotes

"Such is the economy of nature," Thomas Jefferson wrote, "that no instance can be produced, of her having permitted any one race of her animals to become extinct; of her having formed any link in her great work so weak as to be broken."

Warsan Shire Quotes

"Your daughter is ugly.She knows loss intimately,carries whole cities in her belly.As a child, relatives wouldnt hold her.She was splintered wood and sea water.They said she reminded them of the war.On her fifteenth birthday you taught herhow to tie her hair like rope and smoke it over burning frankincense.You made her gargle rosewaterand while she coughed, saidmacaanto girls like you shouldnt smellof lonely or empty.You are her mother.Why did you not warn her,hold her like a rotting boatand tell her that men will not love herif she is covered in continents,if her teeth are small colonies,if her stomach is an islandif her thighs are borders?What man wants to lay down and watch the world burn in his bedroom? Your daughters face is a small riot,her hands are a civil war,a refugee camp behind each ear,a body littered with ugly thingsbut God, doesnt she wearthe world well."

Quotes About Art Relieving Stress

"The brain is full of lonely ideas, begging you to make some sense of them, to recognize them as interesting. The lazy brain just files them away in old pigeonholes, like a bureaucrat who wants an easy life. The lively brain picks and chooses and creates new works of art out of ideas." - Author: Theodore Zeldin

Quotes About Hazel

"Hey." [Leo] squeezed her hand, though Hazel sensed nothing romantic in the gesture. "Machines are designed to work.""Uh, what?""I figure the universe is basically like a machine. I dont know who made it, if it was the Fates, or the gods, or capital-G God, or whatever. But it chugs along the way its supposed to most of the time. Sure, little pieces break and stuff goes haywire once in a while, but mostly . . . things happen for a reason. Like you and me meeting.""Leo Valdez," Hazel marveled, "youre a philosopher." - Author: Rick Riordan

"No. Im trying to think like a human, trying to decide if its selfish to kiss you. If its not in your best interest. I dont always understand how to be thoughtful."

Quotes About Sentimientos

"Una vaga desilusión fue debilitando y esfumando mis sentimientos y mis alegrías habituales; el jardín no tenía perfume, el bosque no me atraía, el mundo se extendía alrededor de mí como un saldo de trastos viejos, insípido y desencantado; los libros eran papel; la música, ruido. No de otro modo pierde sus hojas el árbol otoñal en torno de sí. No lo siente, y la lluvia, la escarcha y el sol resbalaban por su tronco, mientras su vida se retira a lo más íntimo y recóndito. No muere. Espera." - Author: Hermann Hesse

Quotes About Tooth

"I was not in the bathroom, in the tub, or in the spigot; I did not hold court in the mirror above her head or stand in miniature at the tip of every bristle on Lindseys or Buckleys toothbrush. In some way I could not account for- had they reached a state of bliss? were my parents back together forever? had Buckley begun to tell someone his troubles? would my fathers heart truly heal?- I was done yearning for them, needing them to yearn for me. Though I still would. Though they still would. Always." - Author: Alice Sebold

Quotes About Gentle Giants

"In the old stories, despite the impossibility of the incidents, the interest is always real and human.  The princes and princesses fall in love and marry--nothing could be more human than that.  Their lives and loves are crossed by human sorrows...The hero and heroine are persecuted or separated by cruel stepmothers or enchanters; they have wanderings and sorrows to suffer; they have adventures to achieve and difficulties to overcome; they must display courage, loyalty and address, courtesy, gentleness and gratitude.  Thus they are living in a real human world, though it wears a mythical face, though there are giants and lions in the way.  The old fairy tales which a silly sort of people disparage as too wicked and ferocious for the nursery, are really full of matter, and unobtrusively teach the true lessons of our wayfaring in a world of perplexities and obstructions." - Author: Andrew Lang
