Elizabeth I Tudor Quotes

"I grieve and dare not show my discontent, I love and yet am forced to seem to hate,I do, yet dare not say I ever meant, I seem stark mute but inwardly do prate. I am and not, I freeze and yet am burned, Since from myself another self I turned. My care is like my shadow in the sun, Follows me flying, flies when I pursue it, Stands and lies by me, doth what I have done."

Mel Martinez Quotes

Steve Goodier Quotes

"I believe a family can be like that sports team. A successful family wins as a team. But if its members are intent upon winning their own individual battles with one another, the team loses. A winning solution is to work out the differences and, when its over, let it be over. Then they can get back in the game as a team."

Terry Tarnoff Quotes

"Hare Rama... I felt a jolt of energy coursing up my spine. Im in Kathmandu, I kept telling myself - as the sounds began to permeate every pore of my body. Its a full moon - Im on a glorious valley at the top of the world, Im actually here - surrounded by the most extraordinary group of people, yes, Im actually here, and the chanting is building and building until it becomes one great shout of ecstasy, and suddenly Im chanting too - Ive moved into the circle, Im pounding on a drum, and Im looking into the eyes of people around me - and Im feeling part of something big and glorious and magnificently insane"

Carolyn McCarthy Quotes

Hugo Hamilton Quotes

"People say youre born innocent, but its not true. You inherit all kinds of things that you can do nothing about. You inherit your identity, your history, like a birthmark that you cant wash off. ... We are born with our heads turned back, but my mother says we have to face into the future now. You have to earn your own innocence, she says. You have to grow up and become innocent."

Muhammad Al Warraq Quotes

"That Muhammad could predict certain events does not prove that he was a prophet: he may have been able to guess successfully, but this does not mean that he had real knowledge of the future. And certainly the fact that he was able to recount events from the past does not prove that he was a prophet, because he could have read about those events in the Bible and, if he was illiterate, he could still have had the Bible read to him."

Paul Mooney Quotes

"I am very concerned about Barbara Streisand using the H word - honkey. Thats what I am concerned about. I am worried about Barbara."

Kat Zhang Quotes

"But the thing is, sharing hands doesnt mean sharing goals. Sharing eyes doesnt mean sharing visions. And sharing a heart doesnt mean sharing the things we love."

Gary Thorp Quotes

"Cooking gives you the opportunity to meet the things you eat. You can touch each carrot or olive and get to know its smell and texture.You can feel its weight and notice its color and form. If it is going to become part of you, it seems worthy, at least, of acknowledgment, respect, and thanks. It takes much time and care in order for things to grow, and many labors are needed to bring these ingredients to the kitchen. There is a lot to be grateful for that takes place between the wheat field and the dumpling."

Quotes About Unpredictability Of The Future

"The possible redemption from the predicament of irreversibility──of being unable to undo what one has done──is the faculty of forgiving. The remedy for unpredictability, for the chaotic uncertainty of the future, is contained in the faculty to make and keep promises. Both faculties depend upon plurality, on the presence and acting of others, for no man can forgive himself and no one can be bound by a promise made only to himself." - Author: Hannah Arendt

Quotes About Things Not Bothering You

"From the age of 6 I had a mania for drawing the shapes of things. When I was 50 I had published a universe of designs. But all I have done before the the age of 70 is not worth bothering with. At 75 Ill have learned something of the pattern of nature, of animals, of plants, of trees, birds, fish and insects. When I am 80 you will see real progress. At 90 I shall have cut my way deeply into the mystery of life itself. At 100, I shall be a marvelous artist. At 110, everything I create; a dot, a line, will jump to life as never before. To all of you who are going to live as long as I do, I promise to keep my word. I am writing this in my old age. I used to call myself Hokusai, but today I sign my self The Old Man Mad About Drawing." - Author: Hokusai Katsushika
