"Taking the future in your own hands has a fantastic psychological impact."

Rebecca Clare Smith Quotes

"The second wolf dove straight into the free platter. Fibres of flesh ripped apart with the same terrible tearing sound of sacking stretched and broken. Red sprayed. Limbs flailed. The bloody gurgle of a scream tore from Logans throat as he struggled against gnashing teeth. The same slow motion bubble slotted over Violets head, vacuuming the sound. Time seemed to ripple around her. Her extra senses reached out, screaming as they felt Logans existence fray. She moved without consideration, Simon close on her heels, his noises numb to her brain."

Roger Ebert Quotes

"Because we are human, because we are bound by gravity and the limitations of our bodies, because we live in a world where the news is often bad and the prospects disturbing, there is a need for another world somewhere, a world where Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers live."

Joshua Hartzell Quotes

"Loneliness is something that finds us all when we think about it and when were by ourselves when we dont want to be. It creeps up when we desperately feel like we need someone special but cant seem to find anything more than a friend that wishes they could help. Sometimes a friend cannot be found when your willing to settle for one. Sometimes it passes quickly, and sometimes it sticks around to try to drive us to insanity. Its like a creature lying in wait to take us at our weakest moment, but only toying with us when we give up to it. In the end it always passes. There is always something to appreciate and someone to cheer us up. We adapt and overcome. Life is a gift with much more to it than a passing emotion. All around us are beautiful things to console us. Life is much more than one feeling. It is as great as we let it be."

Quotes About Self Rules

"The event of falling in love is of such a nature that we are right to reject as intolerable the idea that it should be transitory. In one high bound it has overleaped the massive of our selfhood; it has made appetite itself altruistic, tossed personal happiness aside as a triviality and planted the interests of another in the centre of our being. Spontaneously and without effort we have fulfilled the law (towards one person) by loving our neighbour as ourselves. It is an image, a foretaste, of what we must become to all if Love Himself rules in us without a rival. It is even (well used) a preparation for that." - Author: C.S. Lewis

Quotes About Apocalypse Now

"There was this other apocalypse this one time. And, well, I took off. But this time, I dont... I dont know." "Well, whats different?" "Well, I guess I was kinda new to being around humans before. And now Ive seen a lot more, gotten to know people, seen what theyre capable of and I guess I just realize how amazingly... screwed up they all are. I mean, really, really screwed up in a monumental fashion." "Oh." "And they have no purpose that unites them, so they just drift around, blundering through life until they die. Which they-they know is coming, yet every single one of them is surprised when it happens to them. Theyre incapable of thinking about what they want beyond the moment. They kill each other, which is clearly insane, and yet, heres the thing. When its something that really matters, they fight. I mean, theyre lame morons for fighting. But they do. They never... They never quit. And so I guess I will keep fighting, too." - Author: Joss Whedon

Just try them that way and see if your sleep is not sweeter." - Author: Laura Ingalls Wilder

Quotes About Art Teachers

"So I heard on the news that the Tard died and your house burnt down. I bet secretly youre relieved you dont have to live with him anymore in that dump."The whole commotion in the hallway immediately stopped, as if her words had been spoken over the intercom. It became so quiet that you could hear Minas and Nans sharp intakes of breath. Mina wasnt prone to violence and was about to think of something mean to say back to Savannah, but she didnt have the chance to, because Nan Taylor, perky, happy-go-lucky Nan Taylor, pulled back her fist and punched Savannah in the face. Savannah wasnt prepared, and fell to the floor. Nan stood over her shocked face and yelled, "No way was he handicapped, or different. He was the most special, coolest and smartest kid ever. And the world is a much sadder place because hes not here. And dont you ever, EVER, insult him again!" Nan shook with anger.The hall was full of students and teachers, and one by one they started to clap." - Author: Chanda Hahn
