Jonathan Stroud Quotes

"Manche behaupten ja, der Heldentot sei etwas Bewundernswertes. Diese Ansicht hat mich nie recht überzeugt. Hauptsächlich darum nicht, weil man beim Heldentod, ganz gleich wie gelassen, stilvoll, ruhig, unerschütterlich, männlich oder trotzig man ihn angeht, irgendwann tot ist, und das ist für meinen Geschmack eine Spur zu entgültig."

Jai Courtney Quotes

"When youre working with people youve seen in hundreds of films... its a bit crazy to step outside yourself for a minute and think, This is surreal. But I try not to get too bogged down in that."

Tom Kite Quotes

Thomas Aquinas Quotes

Kate Meader Quotes

"She cracked a sexy smile with a side of condescension. "Jack, Im not looking to know you."No, she wasnt, unless you counted biblically. She was looking for the guy who indiscriminately dated and bedded famous women. A guy whose life could be reduced to adjectives, most of them unflattering. That guy."

AJ Kazinski Quotes

"I think about something I once heard on the radio. About Abraham and Isaac.""I was afraid youd say something like that." "You asked.""So what about them? I dont really know much about that kind of stuff.""There was a pastor on the radio who said nobody should ever preach that story. Do you remember how it goes? God tells Abraham that he has to sacrifice his son to prove his faith.""I agree with the pastor. It sounds like a sick story. Ban that shit.""But isnt that exactly what we do? Send young men off to a war in the desert and ask them to sacrifice themselves for a belief?"

Quotes About Satanic Love

"On present-day Earth we have the most Christ-like nation in human history, a civilization built on loving kindness and demilitarization. They are being wiped off the face of their homeland. Well, at least the Chinese government isnt blaming Christ or Buddha for their actions against Tibet! But many savage pillagers throughout the past two thousand years have, and the Romans of a thousand years ago fall into that category. Within five hundred years they erased nearly all the nature-based, matriarchal tribes in what we now know as Europe. The invaders falsified history in order to justify their greed. Harmless facts and beautiful rituals were twisted to appear Satanic. Love of the environment and its animals and plants, love of healing modalities that modern day health professionals are now searching frantically to recover, were spin-doctored into demented superstition and turned outlaw." - Author: Doug Ten Rose

Quotes About Family Influences

"Or, if you want to go just a wee bit deeper, we could talk about the nature of freedom itself. Does freedom mean that you are allowed to do whatever you want to do? Or we could talk about all the limiting influences in your life that actively work against your freedom. Your family genetic heritage, your specific DNA, your metabolic uniqueness, the quantum stuff that is going on at a subatomic level where only I am the always-present observer. Or the intrusion of your souls sickness that inhibits and binds you, or the social influences around you, or the habits that have created synaptic bonds and pathways in your brain. And then theres advertising, propaganda, and paradigms. Inside that confluences of multifaceted inhibitors," she sighed, "what is freedom really?" - Author: Wm. Paul Young

Quotes About Counselors In School

"He turned to Edwin. "You know, the stuff you just told me makes more sense than all the weird things the counselors and psychologist have told me in school and at the detention center."Edwin tapped Coles shoulder with the broken stick. "Thats because those people still think you can get rid of the left end of the stick." - Author: Ben Mikaelsen

Quotes About Being Loved Again

"We must also realize that nothing happens without a purpose. Nothing. Not even broken hearts. Not even pain. That broken heart and that pain are lessons and signs for us. They are warnings that something is wrong. They are warnings that we need to make a change. Just like the pain of being burned is what warns us to remove our hand from the fire, emotional pain warns us that we need to make an internal change. We need to detach. Pain is a form of forced detachment. Like the loved one who hurts you again and again and again, the more dunya hurts us, the more we inevitably detach from it. The more we inevitably stop loving it." - Author: Yasmin Mogahed

Quotes About Tingling

"A sensation rose in him, a high tingling of his blood. There came a wave, a wind that recognized him, that did not love him or hate him. He felt what he knew as the rising of his self, the shifting innerness that yearned and feared, that was more familiar to him than anything could ever be. He knew that an answering substance gathered around him, emanating from the trees and the stars.He stood staring at the constellations. Walt had sent him here, to find this, and he understood. He thought he understood. This was his heaven. It was not Broadway or the horse on wheels. It was grass and silence; it was a field of stars. It was what the book told him, night after night. When he died he would leave his defective body and turn into grass. He would be here like this, forever. There was no reason to fear it, because it was part of him. What hed thought of as his emptiness, his absence of soul, was only a yearning for this." - Author: Michael Cunningham

Quotes About Life When You Were Young

"That people were manifold creatures didnt come as a surprise to the Swede, even if it was a bit of a shock to realize it anew when someone let you down. What was astonishing to him was how people seemed to run out of their own being, run out of whatever the stuff was that made them who they were and, drained of themselves, turn into the sort of people they would once have felt sorry for. It was as though while their lives were rich and full they were secretly sick of themselves and couldnt wait to dispose of their sanity and their health and all sense of proportion so as to get down to that other self, the true self, who was a wholly deluded fuckup. It was as though being in tune with life was an accident that might sometimes befall the fortunate young but was otherwise something for which human beings lacked any real affinity." - Author: Philip Roth

Quotes About Lost Fathers

"In rereading one of the best essays I know on Dantes Paradiso, Giovanni Gettos "Aspetti della poesia di Dante" (Aspects of Dantes Poetry, 1947), one can see that there is not one single image of Paradise that does not stem from a tradition that was part of the medieval readers heritage, I wont say of ideas, but of daily fantasies and feelings. It is from the biblical tradition and the church fathers that these radiances come from, these vortices of flame, these lamps, these suns, these brilliances and brightnesses emerging "like a horizon clearing" (Par. 14.69)...For medieval man, reading about this light and luminosity was equivalent to when we dream about the sinuous gracefulness of a movie star, the elegant lines of a car...It is this appeal to a poetry of understanding that can make the Paradiso fascinating even for the modern reader who has lost the reference points familiar to his medieval counterpart." - Author: Umberto Eco

Quotes About Wanderer

"Though he walked and breathed, and about him living leaves and flowers were stirred by the same cool wind as fanned his face, Frodo felt he was in a timeless land that did not fade or change or fall into forgetfulness. When he had gone and passed again into the outer world, still Frodo the wanderer from the Shire would walk there, upon the grass among elanor and niphredil in fair Lothlorien" - Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
