"O sweet, delusive Noon, Which the morning climbs to find, O moment sped too soon, And morning left behind."

Hubert Selby Jr Quotes

"The voice so filled with nostalgia that you could almost see the memories floating through the blue smoke, memories not only of music and joy and youth, but perhaps, of dreams. They listened to the music, each hearing it in his own way, feeling relaxed and a part of the music, a part of each other, and almost a part of the world."

Jacques Prevert Quotes

"Le cancreIl dit non avec la têteMais il dit oui avec le coeurIl dit oui à ce quil aimeIl dit non au professeurIl est deboutOn le questionneEt tous les problèmes sont posésSoudain le fou rire le prendEt il efface toutLes chiffres et les motsLes dates et les nomsLes phrases et les piègesEt malgré les menaces du maîtreSous les huées des enfants prodigesAvec des craies de toutes les couleursSur le tableau noir du malheurIl dessine le visage du bonheur"

Dara Horn Quotes

"Seine eigene Familiengeschichte hatte Daniel Ziskind, Ben und Saras Vater, eins gelehrt, dass die Zeit durch Akte wahrer Güte geschaffen wird. Tage, Stunden und Jahre sind nicht die Zeit, sondern deren Gefäße, und die sind allzu häufig leer. Die Welt steht still, zeitlos und hohl, bis eine besondere Großherzigkeit sie urplötzlich anstößt. Und dann beschert sie uns üppige Jahreszeiten und rauschende Augenblicke rasender Schönheit. Eine einzige schmähliche Tat jedoch, eine einzige nicht gereichte Hand - und die Zeit hört auf."

Quotes About Milagro

"Quien de verdad quiera conservar en la memoria lo sucedido, no debe entregarse a los recuerdos. El recuerdo humano es un proceso demasiado agradable como para retener el pasado; es lo contrario de lo que pretende ser. Porque el recuerdo puede más, mucho más: realiza con tenacidad el milagro de concertar la paz con el tiempo ido, en la que se volatiliza cualquier asomo de rencor y el blando velo de la nostalgia se deposita sobre todo lo que se percibió como duro y acerado.Las personas felices tienen mala memoria y hermosos recuerdos." - Author: Thomas Brussig

Quotes About Fresh Air And Sunshine

"Oh no, I never do much ironing, except the outside clothes. We must not iron out the fresh air and sunshine, you know. It is much more healthful not to, the doctors say." Seriously, there is something very refreshing about sheets and pillow slips just fresh from the line, after being washed and dried in the sun and air. Just try them that way and see if your sleep is not sweeter." - Author: Laura Ingalls Wilder

Quotes About Brick Walls

"Louis found me in the rear parlor, the one more distant from the noises of the tourists in the Rue Royale, and with its windows open to the courtyard below. I was in fact looking out the window, looking for the cat again, though I didnt tell myself so, and observing how our bougainvillea had all but covered the high walls that enclosed us and kept us safe from the rest of the world. The wisteria was also fierce in its growth, even reaching out from the brick walls to the railing of the rear balcony and finding its way up to the roof. I could never quite take for granted the lush flowers of New Orleans. Indeed, they filled me with happiness whenever I stopped to really look at them and surrender to their fragrance, as though I still had the right to do so, as though I still were part of nature, as though I were still a mortal man." - Author: Anne Rice

Quotes About Fallen Angels

"You can live and have eternal life while he burns in Hell with the rest of the fallen angels and sinners, or you can go with me and live in light and let him continue to live the life he has lived since the creation of man. For he is, and always has been, Death." - Author: Abbi Glines

Quotes About Results Effort

"Our immediate interests are after all of but small moment. It is what we do for the future, what we add to the sum of mans knowledge, that counts most. As someone has said, The individual withers and the world is more and more. Man dies at 70, 80, or 90, or at some earlier age, but through his power of physical reproduction, and with the means that he has to transmit the results of effort to those who come after him, he may be said to be immortal." - Author: Willis R. Whitney

Quotes About Caos

"Io son figlio del Caos; e non allegoricamente, ma in giusta realtà, perché son nato in una nostra campagna, che trovasi presso ad un intricato bosco denominato, in forma dialettale, Càvusu dagli abitanti di Girgenti, corruzione dialettale del genuino e antico vocabolo greco "Kaos"." - Author: Luigi Pirandello
