Claire King Quotes

"I know about skeletons. Once I went to a museum and saw dinosaur skeletons. They are like jigsaw puzzles for scientists."

Emma Trevayne Quotes

"Weve lost so much. We might lose more. But for now I can sit here, under the trees and sky, and pull music from the strings."

Alexander Wang Quotes

"I dont think fashion week will go back to what it used to be because people are realising that the industry is completely changing. Its not just in Bryant Park any more, people are figuring out who their audience is, where they want to show, they arent really playing by the rules. Its not so much about these editors, these buyers."

Patricia Briggs Quotes

"Baking is like washing--the results are equally temporary."

Roberta Trahan Quotes

"So this was it, she thought. So many times shed wondered. True sacrifice was the surrender of one sacred thing in favor of keeping another. No matter how prudent or cautious one was, in the end something precious was lost. Whether the claim was in the name of family or duty or honor or truth, it exacted a terrible price. To her dismay, she did not feel the pride or pleasure that Bledig had claimed when he spoke of the sacrifices he had made for her and their children. For Alwen, sacrifice brought grief and guilt, and an unbearable sense of uncertainty."

Wayne Kramer Quotes

"Drugs, were a symptom - they werent the cause of anything."

Quotes About Grell

"Olaf hielt sich keineswegs für etwas Besonderes; seine Heavy-Metal-Kutte und die schwarzen T-Shirts mit grellbunten Aufschriften trug er nicht aus einem Grund, den man vor zehn oder zwanzig Jahren in den Kategorien von Identitätsstiftung, Sozialisierung und Jugendkultur erfasst hätte, sondern weil sie zu der Musik gehörten, die er mochte, und weil andere Klamotten ihm nicht gefielen. Aber Divergenz bedeutete Auseinanderstreben, und Olaf strebte auseinander.Zwischen anderen Menschen und vor allem innerhalb der so genannten Klassengemeinschaft fühlte er sich wie ein Europäer unter Japanern: Alle sahen gleich aus, betrachteten einen als Gaijin, und zum Schluss erfuhr man, dass sie Koreaner waren. [...] er wusste nicht, worüber er mit ihnen reden sollte, und wunderte sich an manchen Tagen darüber, dass sie überhaupt dieselbe Sprache verwendeten wie er. Seine Unfähigkeit, sich als einer von ihnen zu fühlen, war Divergenz - und in deprimierten Momenten Inkompatibilität." - Author: Juli Zeh

Quotes About Unfairly

"Every child is affected thus the first time he is treated unfairly . All he thinks he has a right to when he comes to you to be yours is fairness. After you have been unfair to him he will love you again, but will never afterwards be the same boy. No one ever gets over the first unfairness; no one except Peter. He often met it, but he always forgot it. I suppose that was the real difference between him and all the rest." - Author: J.M. Barrie

Quotes About Big Churches

"Im not a Wiccan. Im not big on churches of any kind, despite the fact that Ive spoken, face-to-face, with an archangel of the Almighty.But there were some things I believed in. Some things I had faith in. And faith isnt about perfect attendance to services, or how much money you put on the little plate. It isnt about going skyclad to the Holy Rites, or meditating each day upon the divine.Faith is about what you do. Its about aspiring to be better and nobler and kinder than you are. Its about making sacrifices for the good of others--even when theres not going to be anyone telling you what a hero you are.Faith is a power of its own, and one even more elusive and difficult to define than magic." - Author: Jim Butcher

Quotes About Jungle Survival

"Its for survival. You need to be prepared for novel experiences because often they signal danger. If you live in a jungle full of fragrant flowers, you have to stop being so overwhelmed by the lovely smell because otherwise you couldnt smell a predator. Thats why your brain is considered a discounting mechanism. Its literally a matter of survival." "Thats cool." - Author: Maria Semple

Quotes About Biyografi

"Editör Hanım, ‘Otuz beş yaşında mühendisliği bıraktı ve kendini edebiyata verdi. cümlesinin biyografimde güzel duracağını düşündüğüm için işimden istifa ettim. Küçük burjuvaların kayda değer lükslerden biri de kendi biyografilerini hayal edebilmeleri ve bazı şeyleri sırf biyografilerinde yer alsın diye yapabilmeleridir." - Author: Barış Bıçakçı

Quotes About White Sox

"Most of us would give anything for the chance to play just one day of MLB baseball—especially for our favorite team. Well, there once was a pitcher named Bock Baker who actually got two opportunities to pitch in the big leagues. He took the mound for Cleveland against the Chicago White Sox in his big league debut. How did he fare? Well, he pitched a complete game. Pretty spectacular, right? Well, sure—but it depends on your perspective. He gave up 23 hits and 13 runs. Baker never pitched for Cleveland again, but the Philadelphia Athletics gave him a second big league start that same year (1901). He lasted juts six innings, and lost again after giving up 11 runs—and then his career was over." - Author: Tucker Elliot

Quotes About Chess And Love

"For Love, to which we may now return, has two faces; one white, the other black; two bodies; one smooth, the other hairy. It has two hands, two feet, two tails, two, indeed, of every member and each one is the exact opposite of the other. Yet, so strictly are they joined together that you cannot separate them. In this case, Orlandos love began her flight towards him with her white face turned, and her smooth and lovely body outwards. Nearer and nearer she came wafting before her airs of pure delight. All of a sudden (at the sight of the Archduchess presumably) she wheeled about, turned the other way round; showed herself black, hairy, brutish; and it was Lust the vulture, not Love, the Bird of Paradise that flopped, foully and disgustingly, upon his shoulders. Hence he ran; hence he fetched the footman." - Author: Virginia Woolf

Quotes About Husband And Child

"I have a husband and children, and it affects me deeply that somebody could be taken away in a second." - Author: Hope Davis
