Nathalie M Leblanc Quotes

"We are trapped here up on this wall by an evil beyond comprehension. It is here that we are damned to remain for all eternity, under the grime of centuries, beyond time. When even the paint falls off and these prison-canvases are bare again… well, then we are in limbo," the poor man opened his eyes wide giving them a ghostly look."

Laura Anne Gilman Quotes

"I thought you thought I was crazy.""I like crazy.""Youre unbelievable," she grumbled."So Ive been told."

Quotes About Being Coherent

"After the alarm clock, it is the turn of Mr Kellogg to shame us into action. Rise and Shine! he exhorts us from the Corn Flakes packet. The physical act of crunching cornflakes or other cereals is portraied in TV advertising as working an amazing alchemy on slothful human beings: the incoherent, unshaven sluggard (bad) is magically transformed into a smart and jolly worker full of vigour and purpose (good) by the positive power of cereal. Kellogg himself, tellingly, was a puritanical health-nut who never had sex (he preferred enemas). Such are the architects of our daily life." - Author: Tom Hodgkinson

Quotes About Glorious Death

"No tabloid will ever print the startling news that the mummified body of Jesus of Nazareth has been discovered in old Jerusalem. Christians have no carefully embalmed body enclosed in a glass case to worship. Thank God, we have an empty tomb. The glorious fact that the empty tomb proclaims to us is that life for us does not stop when death comes. Death is not a wall, but a door." - Author: Peter Marshall

Quotes About Combined Families

"Orange is what red and yellow can do when they combine efforts. If you paint only with red, you will get what only red can do. If you paint only with yellow, you will get what only yellow can do. But when you paint with red and yellow, you will get new possibilities, fresh solutions, vibrant outcomes. When you think orange, you see how two combined influences make a greater impact than just two influences. As long as churches do only what churches are doing, they will get only the results they are presently getting. and as long as families do only what families are doing, they will produce only the outcomes they are presently producing. The church can be represented with yellow ("bright lights") and families with red ("warm hearts")." - Author: Reggie Joiner

Quotes About Cottage Life

"The more I stare at it, the more the popcorn ceiling above me resembles an exquisite mosaic. Yellow rings from a leaky roof add pizazz to the imperfect white mounds; the reflection of a parked car outside the hotel room highlights the design in a brilliant, abstract pattern. I try to find a name for this provocative image and decide on "Cottage Cheese, Glorified."And thats when it becomes obvious that Im distracting myself from thinking about the U-turn my life just took. I wonder if Galen is back yet. I wonder what hes thinking. I wonder if Rayna is okay, if she has a killer headache like I do, if chloroform affects a full-blooded Syrena the way it affects humans. I bet that now she really will try to shoot my mom with her harpoon, which reminds me again of the past twenty-four hours of craziness." - Author: Anna Banks

Quotes About Spring Flowers

"In the forest, in the forest, silence had cast a spell over all things.

She did not sing at all, but sat silent, expectant, and wondering, till her flowers faded and withered in her hands." - Author: Katherine Mansfield

Quotes About October Autumn

"He had never liked October. Ever since he had first lay in the autumn leaves before his grandmothers house many years ago and heard the wind and saw the empty trees. It had made him cry, without a reason. And a little of that sadness returned each year to him. It always went away with spring.But, it was a little different tonight. There was a feeling of autumn coming to last a million years.There would be no spring. ("The October Game")" - Author: Ray Bradbury

Quotes About Pumpkin

"October, baptize me with leaves! Swaddle me in corduroy and nurse me with split pea soup. October, tuck tiny candy bars in my pockets and carve my smile into a thousand pumpkins. O autumn! O teakettle! O grace!" - Author: Rainbow Rowell
