Patty Smith Quotes

"A lot of (childrens literature) beginners get bogged down by morals. A moral should never be driving the story. And a moral should never be confused with a plot. You cant preach to kids, and you cant talk down to them, either. Its amazing how they sense condescension."

Christopher West Quotes

"To find that which is most sacred in this world, look to that which is most violently profaned."

Gavid Hood Quotes

"You can sustain visual beauty and innovative visual ideas for a certain length of time, but in a two-hour experience, which is really what movies are, usually audiences - whether they know it or not - most want an emotional connection to character."

"Sleeping with another girl does not always mean you are a lesbian, sometimes it just means the central heating needs fixing"

Samuel Martin Quotes

"I also saw that theologically speaking the whole idea of a smacking is not congruent with the teaching revealed in the gospel of Jesus Christ. God sent His Son into the world to save the world so they would not have to suffer for their own sins, but parents today punish their children and make them undergo the horrors of punishment for even the most minor of infractions. The idea of mercy is seemingly not applied at all. When parents sin, they ask God to forgive them, repent and know they are forgiven. When children sin, they are judged, tried, condemned and punished."

TF Rigelhof Quotes

"Never ever forget that you enlisted in the ranks – you werent press ganged or drafted. Nobody owes you anything – least of all respect for your work – until youve earned it with what you put on the page."

Maria Semple Quotes

"Its like a hypnotist put everyone from Seattle into a collective trance. "You are getting sleepy, when you wake up you will want to live only in a Craftsman house, the year wont matter to you, all that will matter is that the walls will be thick, the windows tiny, the rooms dark, the ceilings low, and it will be poorly situated on the lot."

Quotes About The Greatness Of Music

"Keep music and art alive in our schools because the greatness of a country is not measured by wars that are won, by territory annexed or even the size of a deficit. It is measured by the beauty of the art work by talented hands, the sounds of the music created from the heart and by the wonder of the eyes and ears beholding them in joy. Art and music are the windows of the soul of any country. The greater the art created, the greater the country." - Author: Clarrissa Lee Moon

Quotes About Crossing Paths Again

"Any hawk looking down on the orchards cloistered square, hoping for the titbit of a beetle or a mouse, would see a patterned canopy of trees, line on line, the orchards melancholy solitude, the jewellery of leaves. It would see the backs of horses, the russet, apple-dotted grass, the saltire of two crossing paths worn smooth by centuries of feet, and two grey heads, swirling in a lovers dance, like blown seed husks caught up in an impish and exacting wind and with no telling when or where theyll come to ground again." - Author: Jim Crace

Quotes About Royale

"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 Arouse

"His lectures were always well attended, and not just because he imparted so much wisdom and knowledge: he also managed to do it with humour.
