Norman Bethune Quotes

"Medicine, as we are practising it, is a luxury trade. We are selling bread at the price of jewels...

Quotes About Being Like A Sister To Me

"My friend Emma, who likes things to add up neatly, claims that this is because my parents died when I was too young to take it in: they were there one day and gone the next, crashing through that fence so hard and fast they left it splintered for good. When I was Lexie Madison for eight months she turned into a real person to me, a sister I lost or left behind on the way; a shadow somewhere inside me, like the shadows of vanishing twins that show up on peoples X-rays once in a blue moon. Even before she came back to find me I knew I owed her something, for being the one who lived." - Author: Tana French

Quotes About Abandoned Babies

"I think," said my neighbour, her chin very high in the air (and still spiffed, I am glad to say) "that women whove never married and never had children have missed out on the central experiences of life. They are emotionally crippled."Now what am I supposed to say to that? I ask you. That women whove never won the Nobel Peace Prize have also experienced a serious deprivation? Its like taking candy from a baby; the poor thing isnt allowed to get angry, only catty. I said, "Thats rude, and silly," and helped her to mashed potatoes....."You cant catch a man.""Thats why Ill never be abandoned," said I. Fortunately she did not hear me. Did I say taking candy from babies? Rather, eating babies, killing babies, abandoning babies. So sad, so easy." - Author: Joanna Russ

Quotes About Icebreaking

"Earth," he began, ignoring the impulse to open his notes folder and count the words. He knew this lecture by heart."Our home. She feeds us, she shelters us. Her gravity prevents us from flying off into space and freezing, before thawing out again and being crisped by the sun, none of which really matters, as we would have long since asphyxiated." Artemis paused for laughter and was surprised when it did not arrive. "That was a little joke. I read in a presentation manual that a joke often serves to break the ice. And I actually worked icebreaking into the joke, so there were layers to my humor." - Author: Eoin Colfer

Quotes About Zuul

"I need to talk to one of the Zuulaman Blood," Andulvar said."They are gone," Draca replied."From Terreille, yes. But there must be some who are demon-dead. You could arrange this.""They are gone," she repeated. "The Dark Realm wass purged of Zuulaman Blood."Andulvar grabbed one of the chairs that surrounded the table to keep himself upright. "You purged Hell ?""No.""Then... ?""The Prince of the Darknesss. The High Lord of Hell." Draca stared at him. "Grief wass the hammer they ussed to break hiss control. Rage wass the forge in which he sshaped hiss power into a weapon.""So theres no one left.""Theres no one left," Geoffrey agreed. He looked at Draca. "If Saetan did what we think he did, there isnt a shard of pottery, a scrap of cloth, or a line from a poem, story, or song left that came from the Zuulaman people. There isnt any trace of them in any of the Realms."Including the islands they came from, Andulvar thought, feeling sick."Its as if they never existed," Geoffrey said." - Author: Anne Bishop

Quotes About Sweets And Desserts

"Beware of books. They are more than innocent assemblages of paper and ink and string and glue. If they are any good, they have the spirit of the author within. Authors are rogues and ruffians and easy lays. They are gluttons for sweets and savories. They devour life and always want more. They have sap, spirit, sex. Books are panderers. The Jews are not wrong to worship books. A real book has pheromones and sprouts grass through its cover." - Author: Erica Jong
