Shireen Jeejeebhoy Quotes

David Williamson Shaffer Quotes

"Hard fun is, of course, the idea that we take pleasure in accomplishing something difficult: the joy in meeting and mastering a challenge. As a result, when someone is doing something that is hard fun, moment by moment it looks more like "work" than "fun," but the net effect is pleasurable overall."

Kristin Gore Quotes

"I had lesser friends who would pretend to be interested in a night of catching up and then morph into giggly backstabbers at the first whiff of Polo Aftershave--woman who were lightning fast with the put-down joke or dismissive wave, whatever it took to seem more pretty or witty or larger chested to the nighly swarm of male barflies."

Quotes About Long Wait Is Over

"When the meat platter was passed to me, I didnt even know what the meat was; usually, you couldnt tell, anyway-but it was suddenly as though _dont eat any more pork_ flashed on a screen before me.I hesitated, with the platter in mid-air; then I passed it along to the inmate waiting next to me. He began serving himself; abruptly, he stopped. I remember him turning, looking surprised at me.I said to him, "I dont eat pork."The platter then kept on down the table.It was the funniest thing, the reaction, and the way that it spread. In prison, where so little breaks the monotonous routine, the smallest thing causes a commotion of talk. It was being mentioned all over the cell block by night that Satan didnt eat pork." - Author: Malcolm X

Quotes About Learing

"Africa.That bird came from Africa.But you mustnt cry for that bird, Paulie, because after a while it forgot about how the veldt smelled at noonday, and the sounds of the wildebeests at the waterhole, and the high acidic smell of the ieka-ieka trees in the great clearing north of the Big road. After awhile it forgot the cerise color of the sun dying behind Kilimanjaro. After awhile it only knew the muddy, smogged-out sunsets of Boston, that was all it remembered and all it wanted to remember. After awhile it didnt want to go back anymore, and if someone took it back and set it free it would only crouch in one place, afraid and hurting and homesick in two unknown and terribly ineluctable directions until something came along and killed it.Oh Africa, oh, shit, he said in a trembling voice." - Author: Stephen King

Quotes About Blind Allegiance

"The need is not really for more brains, the need is now for a gentler, a more tolerant people than those who won for us against the ice, the tiger and the bear. The hand that hefted the ax, out of some old blind allegiance to the past fondles the machine gun as lovingly. It is a habit man will have to break to survive, but the roots go very deep." - Author: Loren Eiseley

Quotes About Stress In Life

"Without energy being invested in resisting the unwanted or dueling with fears, we have more energy and attention available for noticing not only the disturbing, but the wonderful...When we are not fixated on threat and defending ourselves, when were not exhausted and burned out from chronic stress, we are able to see the daily evidence that we are in the midst of a mind-blowing miracle called Life....Then we will experience breathtaking, heart-rippling moments that counterbalance every trial and tribulation. When were fully conscious of the universes artistry and generosity, who needs psychodelics or Prozac?" - Author: Charlette Mikulka

Quotes About Rap Sunglasses

"I could see their menfolk patrolling nervously up and down toting sub-machine guns and draped in cartridge belts. They were wearing their trademark sunglasses, those gold rimmed feminine accessories which should look comic on a man but instead manage to look as sinister as the wedding dresses and blonde wigs worn by Liberias drugged fighters. They are the modern equivalent of the wooden masks donned around night fires by warriors preparing to do battle, which turn their wearers into something utterly alien -- faceless instruments of violence capable of unspeakable acts." - Author: Michela Wrong

Quotes About Eee

"Fred coughed, which caused Sam and Ellie to look over at her. "Hey, Ellie. Watch this."Mentally apologizing to her oldest friend, Fred seized Jonas by the shirt collar andheaved him out of his chair and through the (fortunately open) sliding door.Jonas was densely built ("Deliciously so," Dr. Barb might have said over the sound ofFreds retching), but no match for Freds hybrid strength, and the air velocity he achievedwas really quite something.Fred ignored his wail ("My sundaeeee!"), which became easier to do the fainter it got." - Author: MaryJanice Davidson

Quotes About Spazio

"Odo ancora, mentre scrivo, lintenso silenzio in cui si cessarono tutti i suoni della sera. Le cornacchie smisero di gracchiare nel cielo dorato e lora amica smarrì, per quellorribile momento, tutta la sua voce. Ma non ci fu nessun altro cambiamento intorno a me, se cambiamento non era vedere con tanto singolare chiarezza. Loro luccicava ancora nel cielo, laria era limpida e luomo che mi osservava da sopra i merli risaltava quanto un ritratto nella sua cornice. Ecco perché pensai, con straordinaria rapidità, a tutti coloro che egli avrebbe potuto essere e che non era. Ci fissammo attraverso lo spazio abbastanza a lungo perché potessi chiedermi ansiosamente chi fosse mai, e provare, dinanzi allincapacità di rispondervi, uno sbigottimento che, a poco a poco, si faceva sempre più intenso." - Author: Henry James

Quotes About Historical Revisionism

"In telling these stories of our Nations past, however, lets not be so zealous in correcting liberal historians that we create our own historical revisionism. If the Founding Fathers were alive today, some of them would not want to go to the typical Evangelical church. Some were influenced by the pagan Enlightenment, as well as the Protestant Reformation. one historical figure (not a Founding Father) whos been misrepresented in our quest to find Christian heroes is Johnny Appleseed. Hes routinely pictured as a nice man who went around scattering apple seeds everywhere and toting a Bible under his arm. The fact is, Johnny Appleseed was a missionary for Swedenbogrism, a spiritist cult. This cult taught many false doctrines and claimed that the writings of the Apostle Paul had no place in the Bible. When a child hears that Johnny Appleseed is a godly hero and then discovers that he was in fact a cult member, what will he logically conclude about everything hes been taught?" - Author: Gregg Harris
