[Ezekiel And His Fellow Prophets Have Become My Heroes. They Were Fearless. They Literalized Metaphors. They Turned Their Lives Into Protest Pieces. They Proved That, In The Name Of Truth, Sometimes You Can't Be Afraid To Take A Left Turn From Polite Society And Look Absurd.]

Quotes About Attractive Things

"I am, for some reason, actually happy with who I am and the muscle, the bones, and the flub that exist beneath these clothes.I dont need to lose 20 lbs. to be attractive.I dont need to starve myself of the good things of life to be healthy.And, I dont need to chase someone elses ideal of what I should be looking like." - Author: Dan Pearce

Quotes About Strange Places

"I locate the ladies room. Luckily, its empty, no one to see the vacant-eyed girl, staring in the mirror. Staring at a stranger who doesnt care if she dies. Maybe she wants to die. Who would care if I died? My face is hollow-cheeked, spiced with sores--the places where I stab at bugs. Tiny bugs, almost invisible, but irritating. Usually they come out at night, when Im lying there, begging for sleep. Ive been meaning to tell the manager that the apartment needs to be sprayed. Sprayed. Steam cleaned. Deodorized. My hair looks odd too. It used to be darker. Shinier. Prettier. Can hair lose color when youre only eighteen? What if I go all the way gray? Will Trey still love me? Will anyone? That is, if I fool them all and dont die." - Author: Ellen Hopkins

Quotes About Combining Forces

"Two seemingly antagonistic forces, equally deleterious in their actions and ultimately combining to produce their results, are at present ruling over our educational institutions, although these were based originally upon very different principles. These forces are: a striving to achieve the greatest possible extension of education on the one hand, and a tendency to minimize and to weaken it on the other. The first-named would fain spread learning among the greatest possible number of people; the second would compel education to renounce its highest and most independent claims in order to subordinate itself to the service of the State." - Author: Friedrich Nietzsche

Quotes About Belonging Somewhere Else

"On day one of the drive, I saw my first dome sky. The world was so flat that I could see the level horizon all around me and the sky looked like a dome. Skies like that will give you perspective when nothing else will. The second day, a tumbleweed blew across the interstate. Im in a western movie, I said to myself, laughing. I found it so much easier to laugh now that this weight had been lifted from my shoulders." - Author: Kimberly Novosel

Quotes About Quality In Business

"Many people object to "wasting money in space" yet have no idea how much is actually spent on space exploration. The CSAs budget, for instance, is less than the amount Canadians spend on Halloween candy every year, and most of it goes toward things like developing telecommunications satellites and radar systems to provide data for weather and air quality forecasts, environmental monitoring and climate change studies. Similarly, NASAs budget is not spent in space but right here on Earth, where its invested in American businesses and universities, and where it also pays dividends, creating new jobs, new technologies and even whole new industries." - Author: Chris Hadfield

Quotes About Winged Victory

"The fog turned a strange yellow, then orange, then black. The gilded winged statue Victory at Buckingham Palace retreated into mist. St. Pauls was a hazy outline, ghostlike in the gloom. La Traviata at the Sadlers Wells theatre was terminated midway because the audience could no longer see the singers on stage. Pedestrians noticed how everything below the waist disappeared. Knees, shoes, dogs became indistinguishable. The Great Smog was days and nights of people and things passing out of sight and existence. It seemed a fitting time for a mother to evaporate." - Author: Kyo Maclear

Quotes About Nail Varnish

"Vida Winters appearance was not calculated for concealment. She was an ancient queen, sorceress or goddess. Her stiff figure rose regally out of a profusion of fat purple and red cushions. Draped around her shoulders, the folds of the turquoise-and-green cloth that had cloaked her body did not soften the rigidity of her frame. Her bright copper hair had been arranged into an elaborate confection of twists, curls and coils. Her face, as intricately lined as a map, was powdered white and finished with bold scarlet lipstick. In her lap, her hands were a cluster of rubies, emeralds and white, bony knuckles; only her nails, unvarnished, cut short and square like my own, struck an incongruous tone." - Author: Diane Setterfield
