Quotes About Paddy Fields

"The air had that pellucid mountain clarity that made shapes sharper and colors truer. The green of the paddy fields wasnt just green, but a lusty green, full of hunger for sunlight and moisture.

Quotes About Shor

"You may be astonished that in such a short period of time I could go from weeping over the muffled killing of a flying fish to gleefully bludgeoning to death a dorado. I could explain it by arguing that profiting from a pitiful flying fishs navigational mistake made me shy and sorrowful, while the excitement of actively capturing a great dorado made me sanguinary and self-assured. But in point of fact the explanation lies elsewhere. It is simple and brutal: a person can get used to anything, even to killing." - Author: Yann Martel

Quotes About Growth And Happiness

"There is a purpose for everyone you meet. Some people will test you, some will use you, some will bring out the best in you, but everyone will teach you something about yourself.

As humans we are always seeking feedback and approval from others. That is how we learn and become better as individuals. No relationship is a waste of time. The wrong ones teach you the lessons that prepare you for the right ones. Appreciate everyone that enters your life because they are contributing to your growth and happiness." - Author: The Angel Affect

Quotes About You Hate Me

"I suppose what I mean is, I never felt like I was part of a gang. No, thats the wrong word. Part of a MOVEMENT! Thats it. It feels like theres a swirling, shining wind of change sweeping right at you, sweeping over everyone, and youre inside it. It feels like there is something that transcends you, that goes beyond whatever you are, that is great and whole and good. Great, because when it all comes together its so much more than all its individual pieces. Whole because youre part of it and if you werent, then both you and it would be diminished. Good because at its core is pure talent and skill, like you know youll never have yourself." - Author: Simon Cheshire

And now I seek my hatred and cannot seem to find it. I feel its flame going out as I come to understand [its] existence . . . It would be difficult for me to avenge all those who should be avenged, because my revenge would be just another part of the same inexorable rite. I have to break that terrible chain. I want to think that my task is life and that my mission is not to prolong hatred but simply fill these pages . . ." - Author: Isabel Allende
