Eleonora Duse Quotes

"To help, to continually help and share, that is the sum of all knowledge; that is the meaning of art."

Allen Anderson Quotes

"Animals are divine messengers of miracles that go far beyond emotional comfort and practical assistance. Talk to those who have been transported to a heavenly place by the gentle purring of a kitten or whose broken hearts, burdened by worry and pain, have been mended by a dog licking their hand. They will tell you that animals connect them with the River of Life in ways poets imagine and mystics contemplate. They will tell you that their deepest and most sincere relationships with animals are spiritual partnerships."

Chuck Thompson Quotes

"Learn Languages the Right Way. Language acquisition games and abstract communicative method are bullshit. The second-best way to learn a foreign language is alone in a room doing skull-numbing rote memorization of vocabulary, grammar, key phrases, and colloquialisms. The best way is in bed."

Billy Marshall Stoneking Quotes

"Character isnt something that magically appears simply by virtue of having a birthday and a describable physical identity; it is something that is built by action and error, out of anxiety and a longing that compels great efforts in the face of eternal hopelessness. A character in a story fights to get what s/he wants, just as the dramatic writer must fight to penetrate his or her own stubborn habits, prejudices and expectations, to get to the heart of the story. Drama builds character - thats why it exists, both inside and outside the screenplay."

Uma Thurman Quotes

"Even, today, when people tell me Im beautiful, I do not believe a word of it."

Quotes About Finding A True Gentleman

"[J]ust as in the sciences we have learned that we are too ignorant to safely pronounce anything impossible, so for the individual, since we cannot know just what are his limitations, we can hardly say with certainty that anything is necessarily within or beyond his grasp. Each must remember that no one can predict to what heights of wealth, fame, or usefulness he may rise until he has honestly endeavored, and he should derive courage from the fact that all sciences have been, at some time, in the same condition as he, and that it has often proved true that the dream of yesterday is the hope of today and the reality of tomorrow." - Author: Robert H. Goddard

Quotes About Funny Complaints

"Susan was a tough-minded romantic. She wanted to fall in love with a book. She always had reasons for her devotions, as an astute reader would, but she was, to her credit, probably the most emotional one among us. Susan could fall in love with a book in more or less the way one falls in love with a person. Yes, you can provide, if asked, a list of your loved ones lovable qualities: hes kind and funny and smart and generous and he knows the names of trees.But hes also more than amalgamation of qualities. You love him, the entirety of him, which cant be wholly explained by even the most exhaustive explication of his virtues. And you love him no less for his failings. O.K., hes bad with money, he can be moody sometimes, and he snores. His marvels so outshine the little complaints as to render them ridiculous." - Author: Michael Cunningham
