"Q: Why do you blog?A: Partly to make Butterflies and Wheels more frequently updated and more interactive (as well as that bit more interesting, I hope), but also because I think the world des-perately needs to hear my opinions, and I like to oblige."

Christina Rossetti Quotes

"When I am dead, my dearest,Sing no sad songs for me;Plant thou no roses at my head,Nor shady cypress tree:Be the green grass above meWith showers and dewdrops wet:And if thou wilt, remember,And if thou wilt, forget.I shall not see the shadows,I shall not feel the rain;I shall not hear the nightingaleSing on as if in pain:And dreaming through the twilightThat doth not rise nor set,Haply I may remember,And haply I may forget."

Antonia Montoya Quotes

"Gratitude is not something idyllic that comes when all good things line up to be counted. Gratitude is there all the time waiting to be focused on."

Mara Liasson Quotes

"Until he announced his immigration policy last week, Obama had the support of most Hispanic voters - but not the enthusiasm they had shown for him in 2008. That may be changing in part because of the decision not to deport young immigrants whose undocumented parents brought them here as children."

GG Renee Hill Quotes

"Dread was always with her, an alarm system in her head, alertto her next disaster.Despite being resigned to a life of misfortune, she becameresourceful.She grudgingly noticed that things always worked out, evenwhen she claimed defeat.An inconvenient truth, yet it was right there, in her face,betraying her self-punishments and assumptions.She kept overcoming things, dammit, aggravating herself.She still felt so much joy, despite her efforts to be miserable.Her life was full of miracles and spectacles that she was afraidto rely on so she didnt know how to enjoy, how to be thankful,without guilt.She didnt want to win and she didnt want to lose.Ambiguity intrigued her and she found passion in the gapsbetween hope and despair."

Courtney M Privett Quotes

"Inside all of us is a light, but some beacons are darker than others, and some are so dark they never realize they are a form of light at all."

Bill Bradley Quotes

"Leadership is unlocking peoples potential to become better."

Paula Radcliffe Quotes

"You can wish as hard as you like but all that really matters is the shape youre in on the day of the race. Ive always felt these really big races arent necessarily won by whoever is the fastest. Theyre won by the athlete who is the smartest and in the best shape on the day."

Walter Smith Quotes

"Our works decay and disappear but God gentlest works stay looking down on the ruins we toil to rear."

Maria Amparo Ruiz De Burton Quotes

"Let us cry for the spilt milk, by all means, if by doing so we learn how to avoid spilling any more. Let us cry for the spilt milk, and remember how, and where, and why, we spilt it. Much wisdom is learnt through tears, but none by forgetting our lessons."

Quotes About Exams Coming Up

"All I know: I could only encounter you, my oasis, coming out of a desert. Deserted myself. This is all right. My futureless and solitary self. When suddenly I hear the voice of the springs--Right away you made me want to sing. To cry. Then to drink. But after the desert, the merest trickle of water sounds like a storm. And ever since, Prometheas every murmur shakes my life like an earthquake. I was asleep. I was not thirsty. It would have been possible for me not to hear the first three tears. Ever since I never sleep. I listen." - Author: Hélène Cixous

Quotes About Looking Closely

"The moonlight fell across her gold strands, looking for all the world like copper threads. I half expected them to sing in clinking charms every time her head moved. I hugged her closely to me, hoping to squeeze the bad memories from her life. Id absorb them from her, if I could. Just take them and endure the obvious ache they caused her. - Callum Tate from Callum & Harper" - Author: Fisher Amelie

Quotes About Unforgiving

"Winter is coming, Elena," he said, and his voice was clear and chilling even over the howling of the wind, "An unforgiving season. Before it comes, youll have learned what I can and cant do. Before winter is here, youll have joined me. Youll be mine." - Author: L.J. Smith

Quotes About Johnnie Walker

"You have to look!" Johnnie Walker commanded. "Thats another one of our rules. Closing your eyes isnt going to change anything. Nothings going to disappear just because you cant see what going on. In fact, things will be even worse the next time you open your eyes. Thats the kind of world we live in, Mr. Nakata. Keep your eyes wide open. Only a coward closes his eyes. Closing your eyes and plugging up your ears wont make time stand still." - Author: Haruki Murakami

Quotes About Depressing Love

"I find it rather depressing that the people you love most in this world can also be the same exact people you hate with fervor. But it can happen, trust me.It was the f***ing story of my life." - Author: Christina Channelle

Quotes About Championship Teams

"When the Knicks won the championship in 1970, our fans rallied behind us and became our sixth man because they saw a group of five distinct personalities come together and play as one seamless unit. Winning takes a game plan and thats where a great coach comes in. He has to have the vision. He has to be the architect and design a particular style of play that his players can work together and excel at. The great Celtics teams that won 11 championships in the span of 13 seasons ( 1957-69) never changed their system. They played the same game regardless of who their cast was." - Author: Walt Frazier

Quotes About Mastema

"Mastema prefers absolutes. He wants fences on the world and everything in its place, neat and tidy as a churchyard garden. God is not like that. God is boundless. For all his wisdom, Mastema cannot comprehend Yahwehs need for surprises. An omniscient Being would naturally yearn for things beyond His control, futures He could not see, wills He could influence but not command. Strange, yes. It is odd when the puppeteer desires his wooden slaves to cut their strings, yet that is exactly what He did when he granted humans free will." - Author: Kirby Crow

Quotes About Getting Hair Cut

"Of course, he showed me this one afternoon when he was skipping class. When trolls cut classes, you think they are losers. When the beautiful and/or reasonably erudite do the same thing to sit on the library steps and read poetry, you think they are on to something deep. You see only deep brown wavy hair and strong legs, well honed by years of Ultimate Frisbee. You see that book of T. S. Eliot poems held by the hand with the long, graceful fingers, and you never stop to think that it shouldnt take half a semester to read one book of poems... that maybe he is not so much reading as getting really high every morning and sleeping it off on the library steps, forcing the people who actually go to class to step or trip over him." - Author: Maureen Johnson

Quotes About Death And Love

"Because our world is not the same as Othellos world. You cant make flivvers without steel-and you cant make tragedies without social instability. The worlds stable now. People are happy; they get what they want, and they never want what they cant get. Theyre well off; theyre safe; theyre never ill; theyre not afraid of death; theyre blissfully ignorant of passion and old age; theyre plagued with no mothers or fathers; theyve got no wives, or children, or lovers to feel strongly about; theyre so conditioned that they practically cant help behaving as they ought to behave. And if anything should go wrong, theres soma. Which you go and chuck out of the window in the name of liberty, Mr. Savage. Liberty!" He laughed. "Expecting Deltas to know what liberty is! And now expecting them to understand Othello! My good boy!" - Author: Aldous Huxley
