[Certainly, I Am Writing As A 21st-century Woman, So I Am Much More Inclined To View Her As A Three-dimensional Woman. I Think We Keep Coming Up With This Stubborn Problem Of A Woman Being Judged By Her Appearance Rather Than Her Accomplishments. We Are Much More Inclined To Ask: Was Cleopatra Beautiful?]

Cornell Woolrich Quotes

"Shes a slinky sort of person, no angles at all; and magnetic - you cant take your eyes off her. Shes dressed like a Westerner, but her eyes have a slant to them. They are the eyes of an Easterner. She doesnt walk like our women do, she seems to writhe all in one piece - undulates is the word. ("Kiss Of The Cobra")"

Michael Fishman Quotes

"Im a homebody. I like having my parents around."

Michel Parry Quotes

"At this point, a few words on this term horror are perhaps called for. Some amateurs of this kind of literature engage in endless hairsplitting disputes, centered around this word and its close companion terror, as to which stories may so be categorized and which may not, and whether or not descriptions such as weird or fantasy or macabre are preferable. The designation horror, with its connotations of revulsion, satisfies me no more than it does the purists but I believe that it is the only term which embraces all the stories in this collection and which succinctly suggests to the majority of readers what is in store for them. Horror then, in this instance, covers tales of the Supernatural and of physical terror, of ghosts and necromancy and of inhuman violence and all the dark corners and crevices of human belief and behavior that lie in between. ("An Age In Horror" - introduction)"

Quotes About Him Choosing Me Over Her

"JANUARY 8 The one who draws near to Him must believe that He exists and rewards those who seek Him. Hebrews 11:6 I am who God says I am. This truth unearths emotion in me every time I say it because I am reminded of the journey Ive had to take to believe it. More than any other faith challenge I face, believing that I am who God says I am necessitates choosing what God says over what I feel. I want so much to be a woman of faith. In fact, Id give just about anything to be a woman God would characterize by her faith, since nothing pleases Him more (Heb. 11:6). But if Im really serious about believing God, I also have to believe what God says about me. No small challenge. How about you?" - Author: Beth Moore

Quotes About Omnipresence

"If utopia was illusion hypostasized, communism, going still further, will be illusion decreed, imposed: a challenge to the omnipresence of evil, an obligatory optimism. A man will find it hard to accommodate himself to it if he lives, by dint of ordeals and experiments, in the intoxication of disappointment and if, like the author of Genesis, he is reluctant to identify the Age of Gold with the future, with becoming. Not that he scorns the fanatics of "infinite progress" and their efforts to make justice prevail here on earth; but he knows, to his misery, that justice is a material impossibility, a grandiose meaninglessness, the only ideal about which we can declare quite certainly that it will never be realized, and against which nature and society seem to have mobilized all their laws." - Author: Emil Cioran

Quotes About Crunch Time

"Ordinarily my mom just sunk deeper into her corner of the couch and ignored it. She had succesfully ignored a quarter of a century of entropy and decay, had sat peacefully crunching popcorn and drinking soda while the house fell down around us. If I had to guess the number of books she read during that time, I would place the number at somewhere in the neighborhood of forty thousand." - Author: Haven Kimmel

Quotes About Fantasies

"The truth about porn. Men do not watch porn and fantasize over the women in the videos, they fantasize about being wanted like the women in the videos are pretending to want their partner. If you want to fulfill your mans fantasies, just make him feel wanted." - Author: Michael A. Wood Jr.

Quotes About Famous Buildings

"But I do remember this thing that this famous rabbi wrote once about how Christians build cathedrals, these gorgeous impressive structures, but Jews, with a long history of watching their buildings get destroyed, build their cathedrals in time. The High Holidays. Shabbat. Cathedrals carved out of time that can never be worn down. I know youre no Jew but I kind of think thats what you did with your summer down here." - Author: Dana Reinhardt

Quotes About Hierarchie

"the mystic must be steadily told,—All that you say is just as true without the tedious use of that symbol as with it. Let us have a little algebra, instead of this trite rhetoric,—universal signs, instead of these village symbols,—and we shall both be gainers. The history of hierarchies seems to show that all religious error consisted in making the symbol too stark and solid, and was at last nothing but an excess of the organ of language." - Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson

Quotes About Botanists

"The new country lay open before me: there were no fences in those days, and I could choose my own way over the grass uplands, trusting the pony to get me home again. Sometimes I followed the sunflower-bordered roads. Fuchs told me that the sunflowers were introduced into that country by the Mormons; that at the time of the persecution when they left Missouri and struck out into the wilderness to find a place where they could worship God in their own way, the members of the first exploring party, crossing the plains to Utah, scattered sunflower seeds as they went. The next summer, when the long trains of wagons came through with all the women and children, they had a sunflower trail to follow. I believe that botanists do not confirm Jakes story but, insist that the sunflower was native to those plains. Nevertheless, that legend has stuck in my mind, and sunflower-bordered roads always seem to me the roads to freedom." - Author: Willa Cather
