Quotes About Being Engaged Young

"Being lately engaged to plead a cause before the Court of the Hundred, the crowd was so great that I could not get to my place without crossing the tribunal where the judges sat. And I have this pleasing circumstance to add further, that a young nobleman, having had his tunic torn, an ordinary occurrence in a crowd, stood with his gown thrown over him, to hear me, and that during the seven hours I was speaking, whilst my success more than counterbalanced the fatigue of so long a speech. So let us set to and not screen our own indolence under pretence of that of the public. Never, be very sure of that, will there be wanting hearers and readers, so long as we can only supply them with speakers and writers worth their attention." - Author: Pliny the Younger

Quotes About Hatchets

"... in an even wilder part of the rivers jungle of cane and gum and pin oak, there is an Indian mound. Aboriginal, it rises profoundly and darkly enigmatic, the only elevation of any kind in the wild, flat jungle of river bottom. Even to some of us - children though we were, yet we were descended to literate, town-bred people - it possessed inferences of secret and violent blood, of savage and sudden destruction, as though the yells and hatchets we associated with Indians through the hidden and seceret dime novels which we passed among ourselves were but trivial and momentary manifestations of what dark power still dwelled or lurked there, sinister, a little sardonic, like a dark and nameless beast lightly and lazily slumbering with bloody jaws..." - Author: William Faulkner

Quotes About Drooling

"Apparently, were all in the frame," I heard Harry murmur somewhere behind me. And I whirled back to him. Innate, irrational anger surged. Then stopped, dead - as I suddenly took in Handsome, Robert and Doc. They were all staring at me. They were concentrating, all resolute, all a tad furrow-browed… upon my face.Self-consciousness burgeoned. I gingerly fingered my and lips and my chin,"Am I drooling?""Your arse is hanging out," said Harry, not looking up from the forensics he was scanning.And so it was.Handsome, Robert and Doc averted their eyes as I, wishing Id merely been dribbling, grabbed the back flaps of my breezy hospital gown, fully placed my back against the wall. Then, thinking better of it, dived hurriedly, carefully, back into bed.If Chinese Ladyd been here, she couldve, wouldve, told me.I missed her already." - Author: Morana Blue

Quotes About Turning Thirty

"Im not sure Ill ever know the meaning of life or what comes for us after death, but I know its more than the hysteria people make it out to be. Its about freeing your soul when no one else can; turning thirty and still feeling like youre seventeen. Its about taking chances on a whim, embracing the rain during the storm, and smiling so damn much that you start to cry. Its never regretting, never forgetting, and always being.Its kissing underwater and touching in the dark. Loving even when you think its emotionally impossible and surviving someway and somehow. Its about living life with a full heart and an overflowing glass.I live life on the edge. I dream, I care, and I belong.I know theres a here and now.I know that I want it." - Author: Nadège Richards

Quotes About Rather Being Dead

"It is not about "life after death" as such. Rather, its a way of talking about being bodily alive again after a period of being bodily dead. Resurrection is a second-stage postmortem life: "life after life after death." - Author: N.T. Wright

Quotes About Lyrical Poetry

"Relate comic things in pompous fashion. Irregularity, in other words the unexpected, the surprising, the astonishing, are essential to and characteristic of beauty. Two fundamental literary qualities: supernaturalism and irony. The blend of the grotesque and the tragic are attractive to the mind, as is discord to blasé ears. Imagine a canvas for a lyrical, magical farce, for a pantomime, and translate it into a serious novel. Drown the whole thing in an abnormal, dreamy atmosphere, in the atmosphere of great days … the region of pure poetry." - Author: Charles Baudelaire

Quotes About Humanity Being Evil

"While we exert ourselves to grow beyond our humanity, to leave the human behind us, God becomes human; and we must recognize that God wills that we be human, real human beings. While we distinguish between pious and godless, good and evil, noble and base, God loves real people without distinction." - Author: Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Quotes About Birthday Getting Wiser

"I lay on my floor crying again… shaking. Searching for inner strength and coming up empty. My eyes burned and my mouth was dry as I sucked on air that seemed to keep getting thicker and harder to breathe. I tried to leave again, but ended up leaning my forehead against the door, feeling defeated and wishing the Grim Reaper would come for me in all his silky, black glory." - Author: Nathan Daniels
