Anika Noni Rose Quotes

"I loved Disney. Fantasia was my first, favorite Disney movie. And it just kept going. I loved Bambi. I loved Cinderella, Lady and the Tramp and Snow White and even Mary Poppins which wasnt even fully animated - it was just a little bit animated. They were such a part of my growing up years; I was just very connected to them."

Soman Chainani Quotes

"She had always found villains more exciting than heroes. They had ambition, passion. They made the stories happen. Villains didnt fear death.

It made her feel alive."

Quotes About Your Deceased Father

"As I have told you, I myself was the good son, so to speak, the one who never left his fathers house -- even when his father did, a fact which surely puts my credentials beyond all challenge. I am one of those righteous for whom the rejoicing in heaven will be comparatively restrained. And thats all right. There is no justice in love, no proportion in it, and there need not be, because in any specific instance it is only a glimpse or a parable of an embracing, incomprehensible reality. It makes no sense at all because it is the eternal breaking in on the temporal. So how could it subordinate itself to cause and consequence?" - Author: Marilynne Robinson

Quotes About Random Moments In Life

"There are random moments - tossing a salad, coming up the driveway to the house, ironing the seams flat on a quilt square, standing at the kitchen window and looking out at the delphiniums, hearing a burst of laughter from one of my childrens rooms - when I feel a wavelike rush of joy. This is my true religion: arbitrary moments of of nearly painful happiness for a life I feel privileged to lead." - Author: Elizabeth Berg

Quotes About Escaping Pain

"At the advent of danger there are always two voices that speak with equal force in the human heart: one very reasonably invites a man to consider the nature of the peril and the means of escaping it; the other, with a still greater show of reason, argues that it is too depressing and painful to think of the danger since it is not in mans power to foresee everything and avert the general march of events, and it is better therefore to shut ones eyes to the disagreeable until it actually comes, and to think instead of what is pleasant. When a man is alone he generally listens to the first voice; in the company of his fellow-men, to the second." - Author: Leo Tolstoy

Quotes About Like Minds

"The more I stare at it, the more the popcorn ceiling above me resembles an exquisite mosaic. Yellow rings from a leaky roof add pizazz to the imperfect white mounds; the reflection of a parked car outside the hotel room highlights the design in a brilliant, abstract pattern. I try to find a name for this provocative image and decide on "Cottage Cheese, Glorified."And thats when it becomes obvious that Im distracting myself from thinking about the U-turn my life just took. I wonder if Galen is back yet. I wonder what hes thinking. I wonder if Rayna is okay, if she has a killer headache like I do, if chloroform affects a full-blooded Syrena the way it affects humans. I bet that now she really will try to shoot my mom with her harpoon, which reminds me again of the past twenty-four hours of craziness." - Author: Anna Banks
