"I must write now and quickly, before I begin to prefer the perfect version that lives in my head."

Brendan Myers Quotes

"To my mind, ‘magic is the hard-to-define quality of the things that stir up mystical feelings like amazement, curiosity, imagination, and above all wonder. Magic is that which renders something beautiful in a spiritual sense. It is that which makes one feel as if the world is more than it is presently understood to be, and yet at the same time the world is working itself out in a good and beautiful way. Magic underlies the relationship between us, and the greater immensities of birth and death. Thus the experience of being in the presence of something magical is an empowering, uplifting experience. Magic, understood this way, contributes meaning to life. "

Judith Warner Quotes

"If things are better for women there, it is due to a profound and enduring social consensus that life should be made livable based on who they are and not on an abstract moralistic notion of how they ought to be."

Ivana Hruba Quotes

"It began with a perfect plan. Shape-wise we had a circle, a simple uncomplicated curve to guide us comfortably from one thing to another, an easy predictable ride promising a natural progression from A to B, C and D, and so on until we reached our destination. But somewhere down that smooth line, I think around F, it all went pear-shaped."

Daniel Nathans Quotes

Quotes About Meaning Well

"It does not take a great supernatural heroine or magical hero to save the world.We all save it every day, and we all destroy it -- in our own small ways -- by every choice we make and every tiniest action resulting from that choice.The next time you feel useless and impotent, remember what you are in fact doing in this very moment. And then observe your tiny, seemingly meaningless acts and choices coalesce and cascade together into a powerful positive whole.The world -- if it could -- will thank you for it.And if it does not... well, a true heroine or hero does not require it." - Author: Vera Nazarian

Quotes About Kwaad

"Wandaden zoals mijn ontvoering bieden de zwart-witte basis voor de categorieën goed en kwaad waaraan de samenleving behoefte heeft. De dader moet wel een beest zijn, want als we dat geloven, zijn we zelf goed. Een misdrijf moet worden opgetuigd met sadomasochistische fantasieën en wilde orgieën, net zolang totdat het zo ver van ons af staat dat er geen enkel verband met ons eigen leven is.En het slachtoffer moet gebroken zijn en dat ook blijven, anders is het kwaad niet meer op die manier op afstand te houden. Een slachtoffer dat weigert zich in die rol te schikken wordt een symbool van de tegenstellingen van de maatschappij. Die willen we niet zien, want dan zouden we gedwongen zijn over onszelf na te denken." - Author: Natascha Kampusch

Quotes About Peccato

"Quanti anni ha, Trentotto, Bene, allora andiamo ad esaminare questi occhi. Il cieco li spalancò, come per facilitare lesame, ma il medico lo prese per un braccio e lo fece sedere dietro un apparecchio che con un po di immaginazione si sarebbe potuto vedere come un nuovo modello di confessionale, dove gli occhi avessero preso il posto delle parole, con il confessore che scruta discretamente nellanima del peccatore" - Author: José Saramago

Quotes About Getting Through The Storm

Quotes About Opinion Polls

"In 2004 our forty-second president, George W. Bush, the leader of the free world, proposed an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to forever ban gay marriage--which was already illegal. In opinion polls, about 50 percent of this country said they thought Bush had the right idea. If half this country feels so threatened by two people of the same gender being in love and having sex (and, incidentally, enjoying equal protection under the law), that they turn their attention--during wartime--to blocking rights already denied to homosexuals, then all the cardio striptease classes in the world arent going to render us sexually liberated." - Author: Ariel Levy

"Annabel Winslow," she said softly, "I do believe you are falling in love."That snapped Annabel right out of her daze. "Im not.""Oh, you are.""I hardly know him.""Apparently you know enough." - Author: Julia Quinn
