"He nodded at the sketchpad, still held in Dummys claw, and it hurt, he didnt even want to think about how much that hurt, like a hole through his chest, another one, because yeah. "I was just going to smooth the pages out, I promise. Not going to, you know, toss it or anything." But he didnt reach for the pad again, message received, loud and clear. Some things, he still wasnt allowed to touch."

(5) Fourth and fifth words have seven letters. (6) Sixth and seventh words have seven letters. (7) Key words (God, heaven, earth) contain 14 letters (14 ÷ 2 = 7). (8) Remaining words contain 14 letters (14 ÷ 2 = 7). (9) Numeric value of first, middle and last letters equal, 133 (133 ÷ 19 = 7). (10) Numeric value of the first and last letters of all seven words equal 1,393 (1,393 ÷ 199 = 7). (11) The book of Genesis has 78,064 letters (78,064 ÷ 11,152 = 7).So, what is the big deal about seven? Jesus is our Shiva (7), our Shabbat (7th day).

Maybe once she was married to Nathan, it would come out all right in the end.Deep inside, however, in the naughty part of her that had reveled in Olivers fervent kisses, she knew she was lying to herself. Because right now, the only man she ever wanted to kiss again was Oliver." - Author: Sabrina Jeffries

Quotes About Mediocre Life

"Envy is the religion of the mediocre. It comforts them, it soothes their worries, and finally it rots their souls, allowing them to justify their meanness and their greed until they believe these to be virtues. Such people are convinced that the doors of heaven will be opened only to poor wretches like themselves who go through life without leaving any trace but their threadbare attempts to belittle others and to exclude - and destroy if possible - those who, by the simple fact of their existence, show up their own poorness of spirit, mind, and guts. Blessed be the one at whom the fools bark, because his soul will never belong to them." - Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafón

Quotes About Roderick Usher

"This was the writers true doppelgänger, I thought; not some invisible imp of the perverse who watched you from the shadows, periodically appearing, dressed in your clothes and carrying your house keys, to set fire to your life; but rather the typical protagonist of your work -- Roderick Usher, Eric Waldensee, Francis Macomber, Dick Diver -- whose narratives at first reflected but in time came to determine your lifes very course." - Author: Michael Chabon

Quotes About Castles

"In the book, hummin bins made castles, and towers up to the sky. They tamed the animals and took care of them. And hummin bins helped each other. They were always good."When I was done, Ma asked, Delly, what are hummin bins? Theyre like people, but better, I said. Then I told her, When I grow up, Im going to live with the hummin bins, and she smiled."But Galveston grabbed the book, Let me see that, she said, and started laughing. This says human beings. Theres no such things as hummin bins."Ma, is it true? I asked, and she nodded. How come you didnt tell me? I cried."I liked the hummin bins better, too, she said." ..."RBs right, Ferris Boyd. You are a hummin bin." Her eyeballs were wet, like they were swimming.It was quiet, then, till RBs soft cloud voice said, "Youre a hummin bin, too, Delly." - Author: Katherine Hannigan

Quotes About Philos

Quotes About Frigidity

"Leonard Woolfs endurance of Virginias famous frigidity is, we must suppose after the fact, altogether to his credit. Their honeymoon did not bring the amelioration they had hoped for and it is incredibly innocent and moving to think of them discussing it with Vanessa. They wanted to know when she had first had an orgasm. She said she couldnt remember but she knew she had been "sympathetic" from the age of two. Vita Sackville-West said about Virginia, "She dislikes the possessiveness and love of domination in men. In fact she dislikes the quality of masculinity." - Author: Elizabeth Hardwick

Quotes About Simle

"Aşık olmak sevgilinin isimlerini kendine mal etmektir, aşkın bitmesi ise isimlerin iadesi. İsimler insanların varoluş kalelerine uzanan köprülerdir. Onlar vasıtasıyla başkaları, hem dostlar hem de düşmanlar parmak ucunda içeri girmenin bir yolunu bulurlar. Birinin adını öğrenmek varoluşunun yarısını ele geçirmektir, gerisi parçalar ve ayrıntılardan ibarettir. Çocuklar bunu ruhlarının derinliklerinde bilirler. Bir yabancı isimlerini sorduğunda içgüdüsel olarak söylemeyi reddetmeleri bundandır. Çocuklar isimlerin gücünü idrak eder ama büyüdüklerinde unutuverirler." - Author: Elif Shafak

But I assure you, dear child, every one of those people up there on that wall felt like, thought like, and suffered like you!" - Author: Darryl Steven Markowitz
