"Imagine you saw a colour in your dream, which you have never seen before. It doesnt consist of any colours or shades that you know. Trying to describe that colour would be as difficult as trying to belive that there is enough love & compassion in the world so every human can feel happiness."

Birute MF Galdikas Quotes

"As I sit, my back leaning against a damp, moss-covered tree trunk, my eyes sweeping the canopy above, my ears straining to catch the crack of a distant branch that betrays an orangutan moving in the treetops, I think about how we humans search for God. The tropical rain forest is the most complex thing an ordinary human can experience on this planet. A walk in the rain forest is a walk into the mind of God."

George Fox Quotes

"Sing and rejoice ye children of the day and the light; for the Lord is at work in this thick night of darkness that may be felt: and the Truth doth flourish as the rose, and lilies do grow among the thorns and the plants atop the hills, and upon them the lambs doth skip and play."

Nora Ephron Quotes

"Sometimes I believe that love dies but hope springs eternal. Sometimes I believe that hope dies but love springs eternal. Sometimes I believe that sex plus guilt equals love, and sometimes I believe that sex plus guilt equals good sex. Sometimes I believe that love is as natural as the tides, and sometimes I believe that love is an act of will. Sometimes I believe that some people are better at love than others, and sometimes I believe that everyone is faking it. Sometimes I believe that love is essential, and sometimes I believe that only reason love is essential is that otherwise you spend all your time looking for it."

Ted Allen Quotes

"People who hardly ever cook at all, suddenly at the holidays, feel like its their responsibility to not only cook dinner for large groups of people suddenly, but to serve things that are fussy or fancy or formal. And I dont think thats what anybody really wants, especially if youre not good at it."

Chris Mccandless Quotes

Quotes About Words Getting Twisted

"So what is the fallout for dogs of the Lassie myth? As soon as you bestow intelligence and morality, you bestow the responsibility that goes along with them. In other words, if the dog knows its wrong to destroy furniture yet deliberately and maliciously does it, remembers the wrong he did and feels guilt, it feels like he merits a punishment2, doesnt it? Thats just what dogs have been getting - a lot of punishment. We set them up for all kinds of punishment by overestimating their ability to think. Interestingly, its the "cold" behaviorist model that ends up giving dogs a much better crack at meeting the demands we make of them. The myth gives problems to dogs they cannot solve and then punishes them for failing. And the saddest thing is that the main association most dogs have with that punishment is the presence of their owner. This puts a pretty twisted spin on loooving dogs ‘cause theyre so smart, doesnt it?" - Author: Jean Donaldson

Quotes About Toprak

"Bir biz varız güzel öbürleri hep çirkin Birde bu terli karanlık Sonra bir şey daha var muhakkak ama adını bilmiyorum Nereden başlasam sonunda o ışıkla karşılaşıyorum Yarı çıplak utanmaz bir kadın resmini aydınlatıyor Akşam oluyor ya bir türlü inanamıyorum Oturmuş iri yapılı adamlar esrar çekiyorlar Daha bir aydınlık olsun diye içtikleri su Sarı toprakdan testileri güneşte pişiriyorlar Bir korkuyorum yanlız kalmaktan bir korkuyorum Gündüzleri delice çalışıyorum geceleri kadınlarla yatıyorum Sonra birden büyümüş görüyorum ağaçları Kısrakları birden yavrulamış Havaları birden güneşli Kadınlarla yattığım yetse ya Birde kadınlarla yattığıma inanmam gerekiyor Hoşlanmıyorum" - Author: Turgut Uyar

Quotes About Stormy

"Now, I did know a certain young lady of the romantic generation of not so long ago who, after being mysteriously in love for several years with a certain gentleman whom she could have married at any time without the least difficulty, suddenly broke off their relationship, inventing for herself all manner of insurmountable obstacles, and one stormy night plunged from a high, precipitous cliff into a fairly deep and fast-flowing river, where she perished from her own caprice solely through her attempt to imitate Shakespeares Ophelia, for, had the precipice, which she had long before singled out and been compulsively drawn to, been less picturesque, and had there been only a prosaically flat bank in its stead, perhaps there would have been no suicide at all." - Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
