Agnieszka Radwanska Quotes

"This is a dream from when I was kid. Im playing tennis almost 18 years, and of course everybodys dream is to play the final of a Grand Slam."

Michelle Alexander Quotes

"Arguably the most important parallel between mass incarceration and Jim Crow is that both have served to define the meaning and significance of race in America. Indeed, a primary function of any racial caste system is to define the meaning of race in its time. Slavery defined what it meant to be black (a slave), and Jim Crow defined what it meant to be black (a second-class citizen). Today mass incarceration defines the meaning of blackness in America: black people, especially black men, are criminals. That is what it means to be black."

Alan Colmes Quotes

"If the rate of change on the outside exceeds the rate of change on the inside, the end is near."

Dave Donovan Quotes

"A man who lies to himself, and believes his own lies, becomes unable to recognize truth, either in himself or in anyone else, and he ends up losing respect for himself and for others. When he has no respect for anyone, he can no longer love, and in him, he yields to his impulses, indulges in the lowest form of pleasure, and behaves in the end like an animal in satisfying his vices."

Susan Lendroth Quotes

"Ever poised on that cusp between past and future, we tie memories to souvenirs like string to trees along lifes path, marking the trail in case we lose ourselves around a bend of tomorrows road."

Al From Quotes

Amy Hempel Quotes

"The psychic said I would have two children. This makes me shake my head. I know you are not supposed to leave a baby alone. Not even for a minute. But after a while I think, What could happen to a baby in the time it would take for me to run to the corner for a cappuccino on the go? So I do it, I run to the corner and get the cappuccino. And then I think how close the store is that is having the sale on leather gloves. Really, I think, it is only a couple of blocks. So I go to the store and buy the gloves. And it hits me--how long it has been since I have gone to a movie. A matinee! So I do that, too. I go to a movie. And when I come out of the theater it occurs to me that it has been years since I have been to Paris. Years. So I go to Paris, and come back three months later and find a skeleton in the crib."

Quotes About Clouds Rain

"The indescribable innocence and beneficence of Nature-of sun and wind and rain, of summer and winter-such health, such cheer, they afford forever! and such sympathy have they ever with our race, that all Nature would be affected, and the suns brightness fade, and the winds would sigh humanely, and the clouds rain tears, and the woods shed their leaves and put on mourning in midsummer, if anyone should ever for a just cause grieve. Shall I not have intelligence with the earth? Am I not partly leaves and vegetable mould myself?" - Author: Henry David Thoreau

"I leaned my head back. "I look worse than I did the night you met me.""I thought you looked fine."I rolled my head to the side, so I could see him. Hoping the shadows made it so he couldnt see me.

I was trying to figure out if you wore contacts.""You were looking at my eyes?""Yeah.""Not the makeup?"He turned his attention back to me. "I didnt realize you were wearing any. That night, anyway. Tonight its pretty obvious.""Oh." Didnt I feel silly? "I thought--" I shook my head. "Never mind." On second thought..."You dont like all the makeup?""I just dont think you need it. I mean, you look pretty without it."Oh, really? That was totally unexpected." - Author: Rachel Hawthorne

Quotes About Lack Of Comprehension

"... I succeeded at math, at least by the usual evaluation criteria: grades. Yet while I might have earned top marks in geometry and algebra, I was merely following memorized rules, plugging in numbers and dutifully crunching out answers by rote, with no real grasp of the significance of what I was doing or its usefulness in solving real-world problems. Worse, I knew the depth of my own ignorance, and I lived in fear that my lack of comprehension would be discovered and I would be exposed as an academic fraud -- psychologists call this "imposter syndrome"." - Author: Jennifer Ouellette
