Mitch Glazer Quotes

"In writing for movies, you obviously want to resolve things and have a sense of completion at the end - in an ideal way."

AC Gaughen Quotes

"I left little packages in front of the doors; the people looked for them in the morning, and I knew, in some bit of a way, it bucked them up.I did as much as I could, but it werent like I could get everyone something every night. That seemed like the cruelest part. I tried not to think bout the people that woke up and rushed to the door and didnt find nothing; it made my chest hurt."

Hokusai Katsushika Quotes

"From around the age of six, I had the habit of sketching from life. I became an artist, and from fifty on began producing works that won some reputation, but nothing I did before the age of seventy was worthy of attention. At seventy-three, I began to grasp the structures of birds and beasts, insects and fish, and of the way plants grow. If I go on trying, I will surely understand them still better by the time I am eighty-six, so that by ninety I will have penetrated to their essential nature. At one hundred, I may well have a positively divine understanding of them, while at one hundred and thirty, forty, or more I will have reached the stage where every dot and every stroke I paint will be alive. May Heaven, that grants long life, give me the chance to prove that this is no lie."

St Gregory The Theologian Quotes

"God always was, and always is, and always will be. Or rather, God always Is. For Was and Will be are fragments of our time, and of changeable nature, but He is Eternal Being. And this is the Name that He gives to Himself when giving the Oracle to Moses in the Mount. For in Himself He sums up and contains all Being, having neither beginning in the past nor end in the future; like some great Sea of Being, limitless and unbounded, transcending all conception of time and nature, only adumbrated [intimated] by the mind, and that very dimly and scantily."

George Cooke Quotes

Ellie Ann Quotes

"Ideas are cheap. Writing them into a freakin 90k word novel is the hard part."

Edward Bellamy Quotes

"The folly of men not their hard heartedness was the great cause of the world s poverty."

Hans Blix Quotes

"Negotiations with Iran, especially, will not be easy under any circumstances, but I suspect that they might be somewhat less difficult if the nuclear-weapon states could show that their requests are part of a broader effort to lead the world, including themselves, toward nuclear disarmament. Preventing further proliferation is essential, but it is not a recipe for success to preach to the rest of the world to stay away from the very weapons that nuclear states claim are indispensable to their own security."

Christina G Hibbert PsyD Quotes

"Families that feel together, heal together."

Victor Hugo Quotes

"Above all, you can believe in Providence in either of two ways, either as thirst believes in the orange, or as the ass believes in the whip."

Quotes About Tragedy In Life

"Was that a tragedy? Two lives, driven by one great passion, namely, to be spent in unheralded service to the perishing poor for the glory of Jesus Christ—even two decades after most of their American counterparts had retired to throw away their lives on trifles. No, that is not a tragedy. That is a glory. These lives were not wasted. And these lives were not lost. "Whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospels will save it" (Mark 8:35)." - Author: John Piper

Quotes About Poem

"BAD PEOPLEA man told me once that all the bad peopleWere needed. Maybe not all, but your fingernailsYou need; they are really claws, and we knowClaws.

Quotes About Large Numbers

"One question that especially intrigues me is exactly when humpbacks started coming to Hawaii and why. In artwork and oral histories of ancient Hawaiians there is no record of humpback whales being there, and there is no evidence that humpbacks were there in large numbers in the mid-1800s during the heyday of whaling. The whalers who provisioned in Hawaii in the winter couldnt have overlooked the numbers of whales that are in Hawaii now. We really dont know what happened, but everything points to a recent colonization of humpbacks. (p.162)." - Author: Charles Flip Nicklin
