[And Even If Something Had Once Been Committed To Paper, Did It Mean That It Was Still True? Always True? Unlike The Relative Permanence Of Paint, Words Were Temporal. You Uttered Them And They Evanesced, But If You Wrote Them, They Remained, Though Whether The Written Word Was Any More Truthful Than The Spoken Was A Mystery To Her. Only Paint Was Honest.]

AnnaLynne McCord Quotes

"Before I was going to be an actress, I was going to be a veterinarian! I thought I was one as a child. I was the kid who was like, Daddy! I want a kitty! It needs a mommy! And my dad was such a sucker. Every time I would beg, with tears flying down my face, about how this animal needs love, needs a home. He would cave."

Geoffrey Vickers Quotes

"Every contact you make with a human being (or even an animal) is an experiment and a dangerous and therefore important experiment. It is dangerous because it can never be repeated. However serious, however trivial it may be, though you will afterwards make many others, perhaps more unusual, more intimate or more complete - that chance will not come again.Human contacts are dangerous, too, because they matter so much, and no one knows how much they matter. Even the most trivial meeting makes a difference, slight but lasting, to one or both. Intimate contacts make heaven and hell, they can heal and tear, kill and raise from the dead.These contacts are the fields on which we succeed or fail. I believe that they matter far more than anything else in life. What we are is written on the people whom we have met and know, touched, loved, hated and passed by. It is the lives of others that testify for or against us, not our own."

Quotes About Food And Love

"I love Canada. I miss the heat of India, the food, the house lizards on the walls, the musicals on the silver screen, the cows wandering on the streets, the crows cawing, even the talk of cricket matches, but I love Canada.

Quotes About Sounding Stupid

"Face it, you stupid little cookie maker," Jenks said, almost sounding fond, "in the last couple of days youve seen what its like to be in a family, with all the touchy tempers and irritation that goes on.

Quotes About Short Indifference

"Christians have no business thinking that the good life consists mainly in not doing bad things.

In short, Pentecost makes it clear that nothing is so fatal to Christianity as indifference." - Author: William Sloane Coffin Jr.

Quotes About Pain Barrier

"Poetry can unleash a terrible fear. I suppose it is the fear of possibilities, too many possibilities, each with its own endless set of variations. Its like looking too closely and too long into a mirror; soon your features distort, then erupt. You look too closely into your poems, or listen too closely to them as they arrive in whispers, and the features inside you - call it heart, call it mind, call it soul - accelerate out of control. They distort and they erupt, and it is one strange pain. You realize, then, that you cant attempt breaking down too many barriers in too short a time, because there are as many horrors waiting to get in at you as there are parts of yourself pushing to break out, and with the same, or more, fevered determination." - Author: Jim Carroll

Quotes About Being Besotted

"Its just that the thing you never understand about being a mother, until you are one, is that it is not the grown man - the galumphing, unshaven, stinking, opinionated off-spring - you see before you, with his parking tickets and unpolished shoes and complicated love life. You see all the people he has ever been all rolled up into one.I look at him and see the baby I held in my arms, dewing besotted, unable to believe that Id created another human being. I see the toddler, reaching for my hand, the schoolboy weeping tears of fury after being bullied  by some other child. I saw the vulnerabilities, the love, the history." - Author: Jojo Moyes
