[And This Tenderness Was Not LikeThat Which A Certain PoetAt The Beginning Of The Century Called TrueAnd, For Some Reason, Quiet. No, Not At All?It Rang Out, Like The First Waterfall,It Crunched Like The Crust Of Bluish IceAnd It Prayed With A Swanlike Voice,And It Broke Down Right Before Our Eyes.]

"There is a magnet in your heart that will attract true friends. That magnet is unselfishness, thinking of others first; when you learn to live for others, they will live for you."

James Patrick Kinney Quotes

"The Cold Within"Six humans trapped in happenstanceIn dark and bitter cold, Each one possessed a stick of wood, Or so the storys told.The first woman held hers backFor of the faces around the fire,She noticed one was black.The next man looking across the waySaw not one of his church,And couldnt bring himself to giveThe fire his stick of birch.The third one sat in tattered clothesHe gave his coat a hitch,Why should his log be put to use,To warm the idle rich?The rich man just sat back and thoughtOf the wealth he had in store,And how to keep what he had earned,From the lazy, shiftless poor.The black mans face bespoke revengeAs the fire passed from sight,For all he saw in his stick of woodWas a chance to spite the white.The last man of this forlorn groupDid naught except for gain,Giving only to those who gave,Was how he played the game.The logs held tight in deaths still handsWas proof of human sin,They didnt die from the cold without,They died from the cold within."

Renee Dyer Quotes

Quotes About Being Strong Too Long

"Valentine had long ago observed that in a society that expected chastity and fidelity, like Lusitania, the adolescents who controlled and channeled their youthful passions were the ones who grew up to be both strong and civilized. Adolescents in such a community who were either too weak to control themselves or too contemptuous of societys norms to try usually ended up being either sheep or wolves- either mindless members of the herd or predators who took what they could and gave nothing." - Author: Orson Scott Card

In 1949, after intense lobbying from both the automobile and oil industries, and against the recommendations and position of the Los Angeles Air Pollution Control Board, the public rail system, which at one time was the largest in the world, and still serves a majority of the citys population, is decommissioned and torn out.

Quotes About Echoes In Eternity

"Not as we are but as we must appear, contractual ghosts of pity; not as we desire life, but as they would have us live, set apart in timeless colloquy. So it is required; so we bear witness, despite ourselves, to what is beyond us,each distant sphere of harmony forever poised, unanswerable. It is without consequence when we vaunt and suffer, or if it is not, all echoes are the same in such eternity. Then tell me, love,how that should comfort us-or anyone dragged half-unnerved out of this worldly place crying to the end "I have not finished."From Funeral Music" - Author: Geoffrey Hill
