Shinji Moon Quotes

"There is a shipwreck between your ribs and it took eighteen yearsfor me to understand how to understand your kind of drowning.There are people who cannot be held quietly. There are screamsthat are never externalized. If I looked at the photo albums of yourpast twenty years, all I would find are decibel meter graphs ofphone calls and the intensity of your silence as you sat smoking cigarettes in the garage.There is a shipwreck between your ribs. You are a box withfragile written on it, and so many people have not handled youwith care.And for the first time, I understand that I will never knowhow to apologize for beingone of them."

Laura Davis Quotes

"Abuse manipulates and twists a childs natural sense of trust and love. Her innocent feelings are belittled or mocked and she learns to ignore her feelings. She cant afford to feel the full range of feelings in her body while shes being abused—pain, outrage, hate, vengeance, confusion, arousal. So she short-circuits them and goes numb. For many children, any expression of feelings, even a single tear, is cause for more severe abuse. Again, the only recourse is to shut down. Feelings go underground."

Fergus Henderson Quotes

"I think tripe is maligned. Its wonderful stuff, but everyone goes urgh. You have to wash and then cook it, very gently braise it, for eight hours. It uplifts you but steadies you at the same time."

Jeffrey Michelson Quotes

"She was a former Texan - proud, loud and stubborn. But you cant really be a former Texan. You can only move out of Texas. To be a former Texan would be like growing up in Italy, moving out and being formerly Italian."

Quotes About Swinburne

"I do not mean merely in its adding to enthusiasm that intellectual basis which in its strength, or that more obvious influence about which Wordsworth was thinking when he said very nobly that poetry was merely the impassioned expression in the face of science, and that when science would put on a form of flesh and blood the poet would lend his divine spirit to aid the transfiguration. Nor do I dwell much on the great cosmical emotion and deep pantheism of science to which Shelley has given its first and Swinburne its latest glory of song, but rather on its influence on the artistic spirit in preserving that close observation and the sense of limitation as well as of clearness of vision which are the characteristics of the real artist." - Author: Oscar Wilde

Quotes About Funny Mating

"Funny, transformative events were not always scheduled and not always expected. Yeah, sure, your change turned you into a male. And when you went through the mating ceremony, you were part of a whole. No longer just yourself. And the deaths and the births around you made you view the world differently. But every once in a while, from out of the blue, someone reaches the quiet place where you spend your private time and changes the way you see yourself. If youre lucky its your mate…the transformation reminds you once again that you are absolutely, positively with the right person: because what they say doesnt touch you because of who they are to you, but because of the content of their message.

Quotes About Cozy Place

"I swear to you, youre missing the whole point of the Jesus Prayer. The Jesus Prayer has one aim, and one aim only. To endow the person who says it with Christ-Consciousness. Not to set up some little cozy, holier-than-thou trysting place with some sticky, adorable divine personage wholl take you in his arms and relieve you of all your duties and make all your nasty Weltschmerzen and Professor Tuppers go away and never come back. And by God, if you have intelligence enough to see that — and you do — and yet you refuse to see it, then youre misusing the prayer, youre using it to ask for a world full of dolls and saints and no Professor Tuppers." - Author: J.D. Salinger

Quotes About Darkness And Evil

"She said this world was a hole of darkness, of black light and evil and loss. But if that were true, there would never have been any bright light in our lives. My mother would never have existed, my brother would never have been such a fine man, Andres would not be waiting for me somewhere, though I didnt know where." - Author: Alice Hoffman

Quotes About Time Management

"Sometimes human beings are very much like bees. Bees are fiercely protective of their hive, provided you are outside it. Once youre in, the workers sort of assume that it must have been cleared by management and take no notice; various freeloading insects have evolved a mellifluous existence because of this very fact. Humans act the same way." - Author: Neil Gaiman

Quotes About Realizing Love

"We must approach our meditation realizing that grace, mercy, and faith are not permanent inalienable possessions which we gain by our efforts and retain as though by right, provided that we behave ourselves. They are CONSTANTLY RENEWED GIFTS. The life of grace in our hearts is renewed from moment to moment, directly and personally by God in his love for us." - Author: Thomas Merton

Quotes About Bestfriend

"To the one I always believed in.I always thought true friends are never apart,I always thought that you will always be my bestfriend. But, you changed…I never lied to you, I never meant to hurt you even when you meant to hurt me, you always had a special place in my heart.those nights we spent talking, those hours we laughed at, I thought that you were a gift sent by god to me.when I asked you, what am I to you ?? you always answer with a short amazing beautiful answer, you always put a smile on my face even when I wanna cry.what changed, why am I not the same person you used to think of ? why arent you the same person I used to love and care for ? what happened to us ?is it just me with my head ? or its truly you ?are we heading down ? could this be the end ?I hope not… you used to move like an angle around me, now youre just a girl walking… I used to smile when I hear your name, now I know its nothing but troubles... I used to love you, now its even rough to think about." - Author: Saker Sunna
