Tiffany Truitt Quotes

"The words of Jane Eyre skipped through my mind. How deceiving they were. No wonder the council had outlawed books. Stories enabled you to forget you life and your limits. They urged you to reach for a world that was never meant to be yours. There was nothing more dangerous than an imagination."

Andrew Hamilton Quotes

"It is an old and wise caution, that when our neighbors house is on fire, we ought to take care of our own. For tho, blessed be God, I live in a government where liberty is well understood, and freely enjoyd; yet experience has shown us all that bad precedent in one government is soon set up for an authority in another; and therefore I cannot but think it mine, and every honest mans duty that we ought at the same time to be upon our guard against power, wherever we apprehend that it may affect ourselves or our fellow subjects.I should think it my duty, if required, to go to the utmost part of the land, where my service could be of any use in assisting to quench the flame of prosecutions upon informations, set on foot by the government, to deprive a people of their right to remonstrating (and complaining too) of the arbitrary attempts of men in power."

Quotes About Neighbours And Friends

"She was bedridden falling a fall which broke her hip. X-rays showed that she had cancer of the colon which had already spreed. To my surprise I found her cheerful and free of pain, perhaps because of the small doses of morphine she was being given. She was surrounded by neighbours and friends who congregated at her bedside day and night. In this cosy, noisy, gregarious world of the "all-chinese" sickbed, so different from the stark, sterile solitude of the American hospital room, her life had assumed the astounding quality of a continuous farewell party." - Author: Adeline Yen Mah

Quotes About Sentenciar

"Se tal vier a acontecer, a única conclusão lógica a extrair de tudo quanto se viu até agora, é que, afinal, a viagem não valeu a pena. O que, por outro lado, seria, ou será, uma maneira demasiado simplificada de encarar a questão, pois nenhuma viagem é ela só, cada viagem contém uma pluralidade de viagens, e se, aparentemente, uma delas parece apresentar tão pouco sentido que nos sentimos autorizados a sentenciar, Não valeu a pena, mandaria o senso comum, se por preconceito e preguiça o não obliterássemos tantas vezes, que verificássemos se as viagens de que aquela foi conteúdo ou continente não serão valiosas bastante para terem, afinal, valido a pena e as penas. Todas estas considerações reunidas nos aconselham a suspendermos os juízos definitivos e outras presunções. As viagens sucedem-se e acumulam-se como as gerações, entre o neto que foste e o avô que serás, que pai terás sido, Ora, ainda que ruim, necessário" - Author: José Saramago

Quotes About Refresher Training

"In spring training prior to his 1995 rookie season, Chipper was already so confident in who he was as a player that he famously deadpanned to veteran slugger Fred McGriff, after the Crime Dog grounded into an inning-ending double play, these two words: "Rally killer." His confidence carried over to the field, just as it had since he began playing as a kid—he batted .265, and he led all rookies with 23 home runs, 87 runs, and 86 RBIs. Hideo Nomo was Rookie of the Year for the Dodgers, but Chipper and the Braves were World Champions." - Author: Tucker Elliot

Quotes About Idoru

"I can confirm by a modern dream the element of prognosis (or precognition) that can be found in an old dream quoted by Artemidorus of Daldis, in the second century A.D.: A man dreamed that he saw his father die in the flames of a house on fire. Not long afterward, he himself died in a phlegmone (fire, or high fever), which I presume was pneumonia." - Author: C.G. Jung

Quotes About The Savoy

"He went into those little gardens beneath the over-hanging, brightly-lit masses of the Savoy Hotel and the Hotel Cecil. He sat down on a seat and became aware of the talk of the two people next to him. It was the talk of a young couple evidently on the eve of marriage. The man was congratulating himself on having regular employment at last; they like me, he said, and I like the job.

"The air was so damp that fish could have come in through doors and swum out the windows, floating through the atmosphere in the rooms.

She took them off one by one, crushing them with a firebrand before they bled her to death." - Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
