[As Much As I Admire And Value Intellectualism And Experimentation, I've Discovered That Unless A Book Has A Throbbing Heart As Well As A Sexy Brain, I Feel Like The Story Is A Specimen In A Sealed Glass Jar And Not A Living, Breathing Creature I Want To Take By The Hand And Talk To For Hours On End.]

Quotes About Stressing Out

"I found it idiotically distressing that a sharp finger whistle could no longer summon them outdoors into a playful twilight. An ancient discovery was now mine to make: to leave is to make nothing less than a mortal action. The suspicion came to me for the fist time that they were figures of my dreaming, like the loved dead: my mother and all these vanished boys. And after Mamas cremation I could not rid myself of the notion that she had been placed in the furnace of memory even when alive and, by extension, that ones dealings with others, ostensibly vital, at a certain point become dealings with the dead." - Author: Joseph ONeill

Quotes About Not Hooking Up

"Not so much for Carnival?" I asked Ben playfully, hooking my arm through his."Not so much for driving through Carnival," Ben amended."Too tough for you?""I travel with you. Nothings too tough for me.""Not even that guy?"He turned to look, and the minute his attention was diverted, I raced to the elevators."Hey!" Ben cried, and ran after me, but I dove and pressed the button first."Yes!" I cheered."Loser," Ben said."Actually, I just won. Lets go up and change, then we can hit the Samba Parade.""Change? But I like you just the way you are.""You are such a dork."Ben nodded, accepting the title with grace as the elevator arrived." - Author: Hilary Duff

Quotes About Disunited

"So to hold it they were compelled to dismantle many cities in the country, for in truth there is no safe way to retain them otherwise than by ruining them. And he who becomes master of a city accustomed to freedom and does not destroy it, may expect to be destroyed by it, for in rebellion it has always the watchword of liberty and its ancient privileges as a rallying point, which neither time nor benefits will ever cause it to forget. And whatever you may do or provide against, they never forget that name or their privileges unless they are disunited or dispersed, but at every chance they immediately rally to them," - Author: Niccolò Machiavelli

Quotes About Liberdade

"Tomemos um exemplo: o eleitor que não quer votar com o Governo. Ei-lo, aí, junto da urna da oposição, com o seu voto hostil na mão, inchado do seu direito. Se, para o obrigar a votar com o Governo o empurrarem às coronhadas e às cacetadas, o homem volta-se, puxa de uma pistola – e aí temos a guerra civil. Para que esta brutalidade obsoleta? Não o espanquem, mas, pelo contrário, acompanhem-no ao café ou à taberna, conforme estejamos no campo ou na cidade, paguem-lhe bebidas generosamente, perguntem-lhe pelos pequerruchos, metamlhe uma placa de cinco tos-tões na mão e levem-no pelo braço, de cigarro na boca, trauteando o Hino, até junto da urna do Governo, vaso do Poder, taça da Felicidade! Tal é a tradição humana, doce, civilizada, hábil, que faz com que se possa tiranizar um País, com o aplauso do cidadão e em nome da Liberdade." - Author: Eça de Queirós

Quotes About Cushions

"Back inside, his fire was crackling away. "okay." he actually rubbed his hands together. "Action." In two minutes, hed pulled cushions and a couple throws from the two sofas and made a sort of nest in front of the fire. Then he grabbed his backpack. "Refreshments."I half expected to see a bottle of wine or someting similar. Instead, he pulled out a thermos.Followed by a bag of marshmellows, a box of graham crackers, and, absolutely, enough Hersheys chocolate bars to feed a small army."Smores!" I said happily."And cocoa.Sit." He waited until I was in the middle of the nest, then disappeared through a doorway. I heard a few squeaks and rattles. When he came back,he was carrying a tray, loaded with mugs,napkins, and real, three-pointed skewers."Youre kidding," I teased when he handed me one. "You actually own smores implements.""Roast,then laugh." - Author: Melissa Jensen

Quotes About Silver Tongues

"There were some people you had to stay away from, people who poisoned everything in reach. Then there were people you wanted to stick with, the ones with silver tongues and golden touched. And then, there were people you stood beside, because it meant you werent in their way. And whoever Victor Vale was, whatever he was, and whatever he was up to, the only thing Mitch knew was that he did not want to be in his way." - Author: Victoria Schwab

Quotes About Growing Plants

"He had heard about talking to plants in the early seventies, on Radio Four, and thought it was an excellent idea. Although talking is perhaps the wrong word for what Crowley did. What he did was put the fear of God into them. More precisely, the fear of Crowley. In addition to which, every couple of months Crowley would pick out a plant that was growing too slowly, or succumbing to leaf-wilt or browning, or just didnt look quite as good as the others, and he would carry it around to all the other plants. "Say goodbye to your friend," hed say to them. "He just couldnt cut it. . . " Then he would leave the flat with the offending plant, and return an hour or so later with a large, empty flower pot, which he would leave somewhere conspicuously around the flat. The plants were the most luxurious, verdant, and beautiful in London. Also the most terrified." - Author: Neil Gaiman

Quotes About Rights As A Human

"Im a supporter of gay rights. And not a closet supporter either. From the time I was a kid, I have never been able to understand attacks upon the gay community. There are so many qualities that make up a human being... by the time I get through with all the things that I really admire about people, what they do with their private parts is probably so low on the list that it is irrelevant." - Author: Paul Newman

Quotes About Leadership Development

"I emphasize self-esteem, self-confidence, and dignity, not as an ideal, but as a real test of community organization. Without leadership development, community organizations do not have staying power." - Author: Paul Wellstone

Quotes About Drunk Embarrassment

"It took me several minutes to persuade myself to watch the news. During which time I gave myself a stern talking to. That turned into me considering a local pub that would be the perfect place to drown my sorrows in a barrel of tequila, though after much introspection, I scratched the idea just to avoid needless drunken embarrassment. Then, admittedly, I contemplated pouncing Andrew for another steamy romp session. Despite its proven potency to assuage stress and tension, I decided now was not the time to indulge in explosive sexcapades." - Author: Laura Kreitzer
