[Calmly, Slowly, She Reached Behind With Her Left Hand And Came Up Against — Yes, Fabric. Fine Linen, To Be Precise. So Far, So Good: She Was Inside A Wardrobe, After All. The Only Problem Was That This Linen Was Oddly Warm. Body Warm. Beneath The Tentative Pressure Of Her Palm, It Seemed To Be Moving...With Terrifying Suddenness, An Ungloved Hand Clamped Roughly Over Her Nose And Mouth. A Long Arm Pinned Her Arms Against Her Sides. She Was Held Tightly Against A Hard, Warm Surface."Hush," Whispered A Pair Of Lips Pressed To Her Left Ear. "If You Scream, We Are Both Lost.]

Eben Alexander Quotes

"To experience thinking outside the brain is to enter a world of instantaneous connections that make ordinary thinking (i.e those aspects limited by the physical brain and the speed of light_ seem like some hopelessly sleepy and plodding event. Our truest, deepest self is completely free. It is not crippled or compromised by past actions or concerned with identity or status. It comprehends that it has no need to fear the earthly world, and therefore, it has no need to build itself up through fame or wealth or conquest."

Shawn Mihalik Quotes

Quotes About Psychic Powers

"Seances occur only in darkened rooms, where the ghostly visitors can be seen dimly at best. If we turn up the lights a little, so we have a chance to see whats going on, the spirits vanish. Theyre shy, were told, and some of us believe it. In twentieth-century parapsychology laboratories, there is the ‘observer effect: those described as gifted psychics find that their powers diminish markedly whenever sceptics arrive, and disappear altogether in the presence of a conjuror as skilled as James Randi. What they need is darkness and gullibility." - Author: Carl Sagan

"He buys Playboy magazines and looks through them once, then gives them to me. Thats what its like to be rich.Heres what its like to be poor.

Quotes About Busy Life And Friends

"As for human contact, Id lost all appetite for it. Mankind has, as you may have noticed, become very inventive about devising new ways for people to avoid talking to each other and Id been taking full advantage of the most recent ones. I would always send a text message rather than speak to someone on the phone. Rather than meeting with any of my friends, I would post cheerful, ironically worded status updates on Facebook, to show them all what a busy life I was leading. And presumably people had been enjoying them, because Id got more than seventy friends on Facebook now, most of them complete strangers. But actual, face-to-face, lets-meet-for-a-coffee-and-catch-up sort of contact? I seemed to have forgotten what that was all about." - Author: Jonathan Coe

As a form, the blues is an autobiographical chronicle of personal catastrophe expressed lyrically." - Author: Ralph Ellison
