"We all want a world without war, without conflict, without human suffering."

Alex Kerr Quotes

"Why has pachinko swept Japan? It can hardly be the excitement of gambling, since the risks and rewards are so small. During the hours spent in front of a pachinko machine, there is an almost total lack of stimulation other than the occasional rush of ball bearings. There is no thought, no movement; you have no control over the flow of balls, apart from holding a little lever which shoots them up to the top of the machine; you sit there enveloped in a cloud of heavy cigarette smoke, semi-dazed by the racket of millions of ball bearings falling through machines around you. Pachinko verges on sensory deprivation. It is the ultimate mental numbing, the final victory of the educational system." - Lost Japan, Eng. vers., 1996"

Chrystine Oksana Quotes

"Violators cannot live with the truth: survivors cannot live without it. There are those who still, once again, are poised to invalidate and deny us. If we dont assert our truth, it may again be relegated to fantasy. But the truth wont go away. It will keep surfacing until it is recognized. Truth will outlast any campaigns mounted against it, no matter how mighty, clever, or long. It is invincible. Its only a matter of which generation is willing to face it and, in so doing, protect future generations from ritual abuse."

Daniel Polansky Quotes

"The Questioner was repacking his tools with a vague air of disappointment. Deciding my legs were steady enough to carry me, I propped myself to my feet, then turned towards my would-be torturer. You got a cigarette? I asked.He shook his head, the burned red crown of his hood bobbing. I dont smoke, he said without taking his eyes off his work. That stuff will kill you."

Margaret Moore Quotes

Shandy L Kurth Quotes

"For writers, handing a manuscript off to an editor is like walking into a parole hearing. Youve done the time but wonder if its going to satisfy the judge."

Dorothy Corkille Briggs Quotes

"The surest route to breeding jealousy is to compare. Since jealousy comes from feeling less than another, comparisons only fan the fires."

Barbara Mandrell Quotes

"I realize were not promised tomorrow. Believe me, I realize that. But if God blesses me and lets me stay, I love my life so much, it is such a good life. I am eager to throw myself at His feet, but I dont want to get on the first busload that is going."

Quotes About Underestimated Love

"Yes, I decided, a man can truly change. The events of the past year have taught me much about myself, and a few universal truths. I learned, for instance, that while wounds can be inflicted easily upon those we love, its often much more difficult to heal them. Yet the process of healing those wounds provided the richest experience of my life, leading me to believe that while Ive often overestimated what I could accomplish in a day, I had underestimated what I could do in a year. But most of all, I learned that its possible for two people to fall in love all over again, even when theres been a lifetime of disappointment between them." - Author: Nicholas Sparks

Quotes About Simplistic

"What I mean is, all the terrible things that happen in fairy tales seem real. Or not real, but genuine. Life is unfair, and the bad guys keep winning and good people die. But I like how thats not always the end of it...Evil is real, but so is good. They always say fairy tales are simplistic, black and white, but I dont think so. I think theyre complicated. Thats what I love about them." - Author: Polly Shulman

Quotes About Silver Jewelry

"The last clear thought I have is of my grandmothersrust-colored wall clock ticking away in the darkness of my apartment—my sanctuary where I dreamed and desired and hoped for goodness and love. I wonder how long that clock will tick without anyone around to hear it. I wonder if maybe I should have taken my grandmothers silverware or jewelry instead. I wonder – if I knew then what I know now – if I still would have approached Jade that first night and invited her into my life, only to watch as she took it from me and fed it to some Godless thing, as my mother had called it. Would I still have given myself over to her, knowing it would end the same way, with the barbaric flicker of hope that this time she could love me?" - Author: J. Tonzelli

Quotes About Tuba

"Mais ce qui ne passera pas, cest cette impression de découverte de soi que la lecture de Rousseau procure et qui est différente de celle de saint Augustin; car le péché nest au fond ni lhomo peccator, ni lhomo poenitens, ni lhomo innocens, comme jai semblé le dire. Ce nest pas le fauve ou le renard, le lion, ni même lâne de la fable quil retrouve en nous. Cest le presque-saint, lange titubant, le menteur affamé de sincérité, le médiocre hanté par lidée du parfait. En somme, ce nest ni le saint, le héros, ni le pécheur ou le pervers : cest le troisième homme, pécheur inconscient, fils prodigue et qui se pardonne généreusement. Cest le pauvre diable. Cest le pauvre homme. Cest lhomme.Est-ce là le suprême détour de lorgueil! Est-ce lhumilité vraie sans la vanité de se savoir humble!" - Author: Jean Guitton

Quotes About The Bloody Chamber

"Next I prayed to Allah, whose ears are deaf; then did I beseech his fallen twin, the Devil Hornprick, who sits upon his thorn of fire, gloating upon his constellations and counting his bloody seeds. In Baclava it is said Hornprick once caught a glimpse of the First Woman, as she sat singing to her snake in her chamber of sacred mud. Dazzled by her sight, the light of love and lust, he fell. He is still falling. For all eternity her breasts orbit his dreams." - Author: Rikki Ducornet
