Abraham Verghese Quotes

"Being the firstborn gives you great patience. But you reach a point where after trying and trying you say, Patience be damned. Let them suffer their distorted worldview.

You have to set your mind straight, and that isa task that no one else can undertake for you."

Quotes About Lest

"What am I to God? Nothing, a murky shadow. My passage on this earth is too rapid to leave any traces; it counts for nothing in space or in time. God really doesnt pay any attention to us, so even if he exists, its as if he didnt. My form of atheism, however, leads inevitably to an acceptance of the inexplicable. Mystery is inseparable from chance, and our whole universe is a mystery. Since I reject the idea of a divine watchmaker (a notion even more mysterious than the mystery it supposedly explains), then I must consent to live in a kind of shadowy confusion. And insofar as no explication, even the simplest, works for everyone, Ive chosen my mystery. At least it keeps my moral freedom intact." - Author: Luis Buñuel

Your mind paints the flowers and the sky using the minds eye as a paintbrush and light as paint. Splashing life across the blank canvas of reality. Thats what you do. Every moment of every day." - Author: Laren Grey Umphlett

Come here, boy.And puppy-like, I went to him, the only master I had, and he thumped me lightly on the back and rumbled up my hair, very much as if I had been a hound." - Author: Robin Hobb

Quotes About Feeling Unneeded

"A little porch light from a distant farmhouse dimmed, feeling alone and unneeded until his smallest spark of illumination snuffed out entirely. The night fell as dark as it was quiet. Meanwhile, every secret eye within the vicinity―from insect to animal to human wanderer―stopped to blink, suddenly blinded. Their guiding light had vanished, extinguishing hope in the hearts of many. That little light had mattered, but he knew it not." - Author: Richelle E. Goodrich

Other guests glanced in their direction, giving silent thanks to the organizers who had seperated them from such dread-ful people.There had been inevitable tearful flouncing and shrill recriminations when a girlfriend of one of the younger warriors from Sir Rodneys Battleschool had caught her boyfriend kissing another girl in a darkened corridor.
