Quotes About Feeling Moody

"Olivia was moody. Moody wasnt a word with which she was very familiar, but if it meant that her moods swung back and forth for no reason at all, and that she felt crabby and wanted to be alone more often than she felt content and friendly, and that she was often tempted to slam her bedroom door - preferably in someones face - well, then, moody described perfectly the way shed been feeling lately." - Author: Ann M.

Quotes About Intuition And God

"At times we have to step into Gods silence and patiently wait. We have to put out the fleece as Gideon did (Judges 6:37-40), and wait for the descent of the divine dew, or some kind of confirmation from God that we are on the right course. That is a good way to keep our own ego drive out of the way.Yet there are other times when we need to go ahead and act on our own best intuitions and presume that God is guiding us and will guide us. But even then we must finally wait for the divine backup. Sometimes that is even the greater act of faith and courage, and takes even more patience. What if the divine dew does not fall? What do we do then?When either waiting or moving forward is done out of a spirit of union and surrender, we can trust that God will make good out of it—even if we are mistaken! It is not about being correct, it is about being connected." - Author: Richard Rohr

"Ive got a surprise." Jase opens the door of the van for me a couple days later. I havent seen Tim or Nan since the incident at the B&T, and Im secretly glad for a break from the drama.I slide into the van, my sneakers crunching into a crumpled pile of magazines, an empty Dunkin Donuts coffee cup, various Poland Spring and Gatorade bottles, and lots of unidentifiable snack wrappers. Alice and her Bug are evidently still at work."A surprise, for me?" I ask, intrigued."Well, its for me, but you too, kind of. I mean, its something I want you to see."This sounds a little unnerving. "Is it a body part?" I ask.Jase rolls his eyes. "No. Jeez. I hope Id be smoother than that."I laugh. "Okay. Just checking." - Author: Huntley Fitzpatrick

Quotes About Fleeting Youth

"I just wish moments werent so fleeting! Isaac called to the man on the roof, They pass so quickly! Fleeting?! responded the tilling man, Moments? They pass quickly?! . . . Why, once a man is finished growing, he still has twenty years of youth. After that, he has twenty years of middle age. Then, unless misfortune strikes, nature gives him twenty thoughtful years of old age. Why do you call that quickly? And with that, the tilling man wiped his sweaty brow and continued tilling; and the dejected Isaac continued wandering. Stupid fool! Isaac muttered quietly to himself as soon as he was far enough away not to be heard." - Author: Roman Payne

Quotes About Deadly Snakes

"She felt the snake between her breasts, felt him there, and loved him there, coiled, the deep tumescent S held rigid, ready to strike. She loved the way the snake looked sewn onto her V-neck letter sweater, his hard diamondback pattern shining in the sun. It was unseasonably hot, almost sixty degrees, for early November in Mystic, Georgia, and she could smell the light musk of her own sweat. She liked the sweat, liked the way it felt, slick as oil, in all the joints of her body, her bones, in the firm sliding muscles, tensed and locked now, ready to spring--to strike--when the band behind her fired up the school song: "Fight On Deadly Rattlers of Old Mystic High."
