[Clevedon Told The Dressmakers That The Previous Tenants (a Husband And Wife) Had Fallen Into Dire Financial Difficulties Within Months Of Opening The Place. They'd Absconded In The Dead Of Night Mere Days Ago, Owing Three Months' Back Rent. They Must Have Borrowed Or Stolen A Cart, Because They'd Taken Away Most Of The Shop's Contents And Fixtures. This Was A Complete Lie. The Truth Was, Varley Had Bribed Them To Move And Sweetened The Offer By Allowing Them To Take With Them Everything That Wasn't Nailed Down.]

"It will be like having an extreme close-up in high definition to examine each freckle, while failing to notice whether the person is even wearing pants."

Lockes Quotes

"When once we quit the basis of sensation, all is in the wind. To talk of immaterial existences, is to talk of nothings. To say that the human soul, angels, God, are immaterial, is to say they are nothings, or that there is no God, no angels, no soul. I cannot reason otherwise. But I believe that I am supported in my creed of Materialism by the Lockes, the Tracys, and the Stewarts (Letter to John Adams Monticello, Aug. 15, 1820)."

Quotes About Circular

"Between going and staying the day wavers,in love with its own transparency.The circular afternoon is now a baywhere the world in stillness rocks.All is visible and all elusive,all is near and cant be touched.Paper, book, pencil, glass,rest in the shade of their names.Time throbbing in my temples repeatsthe same unchanging syllable of blood.The light turns the indifferent wallinto a ghostly theater of reflections.I find myself in the middle of an eye,watching myself in its blank stare.The moment scatters. Motionless,I stay and go: I am a pause." - Author: Octavio Paz

Quotes About Explaining How You Feel

"Many partners of addicts have told me they feel bad about themselves for staying in the relationship because of the betrayal theyve experienced. They imagine that the people who know their past judge them to be stupid for staying with the person whos caused them so much pain. I often counter this thinking, explaining that leaving may seem quick and easy because they can pretend theyre okay and the problem has disappeared. However, if you leave your relationship, youll be stuck with your pain and sorrow without the person you loved to help you sort it out. Why is this true? Because even though it feels as if your pain comes from your partner, its actually coming from inside you." - Author: Alexandra Katehakis

Quotes About Ayaan

"Di ko alam kung paano ie-explain, pero, para sa akin, ang bag ng babae ay simbolo ng kanyang daigdig. The mere fact na nag-decide ang babae na yun ang laman at bigat ng bag niya, yun ang personal nyang mundo. Kaya niya dinala yun kasi yun ang kaya nyang dalhin. Anytime, anywhere. Nadadala niya yun from point A to point B. Pero kapag nakakita na ng lalake, dapat lalake na ang magpatuloy ng pagdadala from point B to point C? Kapag umalis ba ang babae mula sa kanyang bahay, aware siya na may lalakeng magbibitbit ng bag niya? I dont think so. Even without the guy, dadalhin pa rin naman ng babae yun kahit saan siya magpunta. Kaya ako, hinahayaan ko lang bitbitin ng babae ang kanyang bag. Gusto kong sabihin sa kanya na with or without me, or each other, tuloy lang ang pagbibitbit ng mundo, ng kani-kaniyang daigdig." - Author: Eros S. Atalia

Quotes About Wondering What You Mean To Someone

"How do you make someone love you? For the very young, there can be nothing harder in the world. You may try as hard as you like: place yourself beside them, cook their favourite food, bring them wine or sing the love songs that you know will move them. They will not move them. Nothing will move them. You will waste days interpreting the simple banalities of a phone call; months staring at their soft lips as they talk; you will waste years watching a body sitting in a chair and willing every muscle to take you across the room and do a simple thing, say a simple word, make them love you and you will not do it; you will waste long nights wondering how they cannot feel this - the urge to embrace, the snow melt in the heart when you are near them - how they can sit in that chair, or speak with those lips, or make a call and mean nothing by it, hide nothing in their hearts. Or perhaps what they hide is not what you want to see. Because surely they love someone. It simply isnt you." - Author: Andrew Sean Greer
