Matthew Chase Stroud Quotes

"He could feel himself gliding down like the sail of a weightless craft, forever plunging into the great beyond below where mermaids sing and summon their lovers home, further down into the depths of some complacent serenity, further down where thoughts float away and never return and the lightness is so grand that there is no other worldly place imaginable, for there is no world left to beconsidered. There is only the soul, free from the prison of the body, and it is released to travelanother millennium through time, carrying with it the progress and industry gathered from themind previously occupied."

Quotes About Hands In The Bible

"I held it out and Caleb took it. This was the first book he had held in his hands. He made me smile, opening it upside down and back to front, but he touched the pages with the utmost care, as if gentling some fragile-boned wild thing. The godliest among us did not touch the Bible with such reverence as he showed to that small book." - Author: Geraldine Brooks

Quotes About Roaring Like A Lion

"Daltrey was by all accounts the toughest man in the Who; maybe the toughest man in London. Filled with blue collar attitude, he strutted around the stage, screaming out the rage of a century of Londons dead end lives, roaring like a young lion trapped in a decadent, dying England. Townsend wrote prettily, daydreaming foolishly individualistic dreams of artistic expression, but it was Rogers sledghammer voice that smashed the skulls of the enemy." - Author: Dave Marsh

Quotes About Sphinx

"At most, a hundred paces separated him from them. The powerful beast, seeing the riders and horses, rose on his fore paws and began to gaze at them. The sun, which now stood low, illuminated his huge head and shaggy breasts, and in that ruddy luster he was like one of those sphinxes which ornament the entrances to ancient Egyptian temples." - Author: Henryk Sienkiewicz

Quotes About Eugene O Neill

"Nineteenth-century preacher Henry Ward Beechers last words were "Now comes the mystery." The poet Dylan Thomas, who liked a good drink at least as much as Alaska, said, "Ive had eighteen straight whiskeys. I do believe thats a record," before dying. Alaskas favorite was playwright Eugene ONeill: "Born in a hotel room, and--God damn it--died in a hotel room." Even car-accident victims sometimes have time for last words. Princess Diana said, "Oh God. Whats happened?" Movie star James Dean said, "Theyve got to see us," just before slamming his Porsche into another car. I know so many last words. But I will never know hers." - Author: John Green

Quotes About Babcock

"Babcock knew no Southerners personally but he had seen them in court often enough...and Eds manner and appearance said Dixie to him. He imagined Ed at home with his family, a big one, from old geezers to toddlers. He saw them eating their yams and pralines and playing their fiddles and dancing their jigs and guffawing over coarse jokes and beating one another to death with agricultural implements." - Author: Charles Portis

"Did you catch the time-of-great-suffering thing?"Her expression softened. "Can you just make sure Im not around when it happens?""No can do," I said, strolling back to my office with a negating wave of my hand.

"What ever happened to taking one for the team?""Was never much of a team player.""Sacrificing yourself for the greater good?""Not that into human sacrifice.""Suffering in silence?"I stopped and turned back to her, my eyes narrowing accusingly.
