"Sometimes what wishes do...especially the big, big wishes, is churn up all the confusion and longing that sloshes around forever inside of you."

NeNe Leakes Quotes

"Im just not into trying to convince people like me. I always say to myself, It is what it is. I walk into a situation knowing that people are either going to love me or theyre not, and thats OK. Im just going to be me. You cant be everything to everyone."

Oliver Bowden Quotes

"What is the truth? he asked. ‘We place faith in ourselves, replied Altaïr (...) ‘We see the world as it really is, and hope that one day all mankind might see the same.‘What is the world, then?‘An illusion, replied Altaïr. ‘One we can either submit to – as most do – or transcend.‘And what is it to transcend?To recognize that laws arise not from divinity, but reason. I understand now that our Creed does not command us to be free. And suddenly he really did understand. ‘It commands us to be wise"

Kellie Pickler Quotes

"The thing is, my life is a country song. I dont need to be manufactured, and I dont need anyone to tell me what to say or what to sing."

Charles Grodin Quotes

"I would rather people take me as straightforward and not have to wonder if Im kidding or not. Because what I have to say, and what Im interested in doing and communicating, is worthwhile enough that I dont want to muck it up with people being confused about where Im really coming from."

Michael Puttonen Quotes

"A city finds its life through the humans who inhabit it. When they go, what is truly left? Just silent stones, witnesses to the history but mute in its telling, remaining thus while slowly turning to rubble. It saddens me that lifes moments are thus lost, that one cannot experience the past in the same rich vibrancy as the present. You live the moments and then relegate them to memory, now just two-dimensional shadows, pictures without depth, stripped of their purest emotion, their tactile connections no longer accessible. You try to recall, but can bring back only a fraction of the event lived. The rest is gone, never to be as full and complete as it was in that one place at that one time. That was what I thought as I studied these stone remains; that all the tangible things experienced here abide somewhere in time, but can never again be wholly re-animated, now just ghosts imbedded in the crumbling walls and in the fading memories of those who once lived here."

Karen Maitland Quotes

"The day that I left my home, I had prayed that my children would forget me. I wanted to spare them the pain of remembering. But that night, as I crouched in the white mist, waiting, I knew more than anything that I wanted them to remember, I wanted desperately to go on living in someones memory. If we are not remembered, we are more than dead, for it is as if we had never lived."

Charles Manning Child Quotes

"Do experimental work but keep in mind that other investigators in the same field will consider your discoveries as less than one fourth as important as they seem to you."

Quotes About Survival And Hope

"I call these lessons ‘learned on the fly because the knowledge gained from the experiences connected with them were very much akin to the spirit of the centerfielder in baseball running backward at full speed, looking towards the heavens, trying to not lose sight of the ball or fail to notice the sensation of gravel from the warning track under his cleats as he knowingly approaches the blindside impact of an outfield wall. His focused intention guides him into trying to make the catch that will save the game for his team, his city and the harmony of the moment, despite the foreboding threat of a pending collision. Decisions in these situations are made in an instant. One weighs the purpose of the game, the success of the catch and ones own safety of survival in a fleeting moment, and in all hopes one lives to tell about it in the glow of great success." - Author: Michael Delaware

Quotes About Products

"It shouldnt be the consumers responsibility to figure out whats cruel and whats kind, whats environmentally destructive and whats sustainable. Cruel and destructive food products should be illegal. We dont need the option of buying childrens toys made with lead paint, or aerosols with chlorofluorocarbons, or medicines with unlabeled side effects. And we dont need the option of buying factory-farmed animals." - Author: Jonathan Safran Foer

Quotes About Timber

"Life and death lived inside each other. Thats what occured to me. Death was inside all of us, waiting for warmer nights, a compromised system, a beetle, as in the now dying black timber on the mountains." - Author: Peter Heller

Quotes About City Planning

"The motorization of law into mere decree was not yet the culmination of simplifications and accelerations. New accelerations were produced by market regulations and state control of the economy —with their numerous and transferable authorizations and subauthorizations to various offices, associations and commissions concerned with economic decisions. Thus in Germany, the concept of "directive" appeared next to the concept of "decree." This was "the elastic form of legislation," surpassing the decree in terms of speed and simplicity. Whereas the decree was called a "motorized law," the directive became a "motorized decree." Here independent, purely positivist jurisprudence lost its freedom of maneuver. Law became a means of planning, an administrative act, a directive." - Author: Carl Schmitt

Quotes About Locomotives

"He learns that the form, in its current form, was originally called a formulary, and was invented by an Englishman named Charles Babbage, the same man who invented both an early kind of computer and the cow catcher, a device attached to the front of locomotives to clear debris from train tracks. He learns that Babbage once wrote to Alfred Tennyson to correct two lines from one of Tennysons poems, which Babbage felt lacked scientific accuracy. This, thinks Jonas, tells you everything you need to know about both the man and the invention of forms." - Author: Stephen Dau

Quotes About Arrangement

"I turned to face him, knowing in him, Id find the temporary cure. "Do you want to fuck it out?" Braden smiled slowly, bemused, causing another twist of attraction in my gut. "Fuck it out?""All the bullshit. What she did. What he did. Every soulless bitch that wanted something from you"His expression changed immediately, becoming hard, unfathomable, as he took a step towards me. "Are you saying you dont want anything from me?""I want this. I want our arrangement. I want you..." I sucked in a breath, feeling my control slip. "... to fuck it out of me." - Author: Samantha Young

Quotes About Excess Baggage

"And so I urge you to still every motion that is not rooted in the Kingdom. Become quiet, hushed, motionless until you are finally centered. Strip away all excess baggage and nonessential trappings until you have come into the stark reality of the Kingdom of God. Let go of all distractions until you are driven into the Core. Allow God to reshuffle your priorities and eliminate unnecessary froth. Mother Teresa of Calcutta said, Pray for me that I not loosen my grip on the hands of Jesus even under the guise of ministering to the poor. That is our first task: to grip the hands of Jesus with such tenacity that we are obliged to follow his lead, to seek first his Kingdom." - Author: Richard J. Foster

Quotes About Sad Friendship

"A male-female close-friendship hardly differs from a relationship; it takes "relating" to be friends. But sadly, not every relationship has friendship in it. Its just ironical that two people who are not good enough to be best friends are in love and want to spend the rest of their lives together." - Author: Olaotan Fawehinmi
