Let the world feel blessed and continue to get better by touch of your elegance."

Quotes About Refine

"I have been deceived, before, in the objects whom I have endeavoured to benefit; but I feel strongly disposed to trust you, nevertheless; and I am more interested in your behalf than I can well account for, even to myself. The persons on whom I have bestowed my dearest love, lie deep in their graves; but, although the happiness and delight of my life lie buried there too, I have not made a coffin of my heart, and sealed it up, forever,on my best affections. Deep affliction has but strengthened and refined them..." - Author: Charles Dickens

Quotes About Father In Law

"It did not often happen; for Mr. John Knightley had really a great regard for his father-in-law, and generally a strong sense of what was due to him; but it was too often for Emmas charity, especially as there was all the pain of apprehension frequently to be endured, though the offense came not." - Author: Jane Austen

Quotes About Laughing At Others

"Sydneys the kind of port that leaves a mark on a sailor," the old man mused. "Really?" Haakon said, wondering what the man meant. "It did on me," he said, opening up his shirt to display his chest. It was covered with tattoos! At the top, SYDNEY was printed in elaborate red and blue letters. Beneath that was an enticing selection of names and dates. "Mary, 1838...Adella, 1840..." The old sailor began laughing. "Beatrice, 1843...Helen, 1846." And then finally, "Mother." There was no date after "Mother." "Mothers you love forever," he said. Everybody laughed then, including Haakon, though the thought brought some sadness to his heart. He did love his mother forever, and he missed her as well." - Author: Bonnie Bryant Hiller

Quotes About Adrienne

"[The maid] went on and on about how you and three casks of wine and three women spent the week before our wedding trying to...you know"--Adrienne muttered an unintelligible word--"your brains out.""To what my brains out?""You know." Adrienne rolled her eyes. "Im afraid I dont. What was that word again?""Adrienne looked at him sharply. Was he teasing her? Were his eyes alight with mischief? That half-smile curving his beautiful mouth could absolutely melt the sheet she was clutching, not to mention her will. "Apparently one of them succeeded, because if you had any brains left youd get out of my sight now," she snapped. "It wasnt three." Hawk swallowed a laugh."No?""It was five.""Adriennes jaw clenched. She held her fingers up again. "Fourth--this will be a marriage in name only. Period.""Casks of wine, I meant.""You are not funny." - Author: Karen Marie Moning

"Zach, this isnt a game, you know. I dont just write it. I live it. Im a Domme, a female Dominant. There arent a lot of us around. Most Dominants are men. Technically Im Switch since I can top and bottom, but if I show up on your doorstep, get ready to say ouch. Im not good at it - Im amazing at it. So good at it that Im as famous down here for my skills with a whip as I am in the straight world for my skills with a pen." - Author: Tiffany Reisz

Quotes About The Fifteenth Amendment

"There is another, grimmer history to the filibuster, though, one that carries special relevance for me. For almost a century, the filibuster was the Souths weapon of choice in its efforts to protect Jim Crow from federal interference, the legal blockade that effectively gutted the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments. Decade after decade, courtly, erudite men like Senator Richard B Russell of Georgia used the filibuster to choke off any and every piece of civil rights legislation before the Senate, whether voting rights bills, or fair employment bills, or anti-lynching bills." - Author: Barack Obama

Quotes About Concern For Someone

"I settled back on the bed with my own heavy sigh. "The point of this reluctant outpouring of all my crap isnt to make you feel guilty. I dont need anyone to be concerned for me. Thats my point. Will that change one day? I dont know. Im not asking it to. But Rhian, when you trusted James with all you baggage you decided that day that you were asking someone to be concerned. You were tired of being alone. Will staying with him be hard? Yes. Will fighting your fears every day be difficult? Yes. But how he feels for you... jeez, Rhian... thats worth it. And telling yourself that its okay to run way from him to be alone just because Im alone and okay with it, is bullshit. Im alone because I just am. Youre alone because you made a choice. And its the wrong fucking choice." - Author: Samantha Young
