"May you get more out of life than a cup of tea."

Colin Howson Quotes

Patrick DeWitt Quotes

"Your skin is prickly from fatigue and pain and there is a hissing in your ears. Time passes and the pills are taking hold like a glowing white planet coming into view. A reverse eclipse. And you watch with your eyes closed. The white planet is half exposed, it grips your heart in its light and seems to be pulling you forward and now you feel that you are falling. You are awake but dreaming. "The earth is not beautiful but the universe is," you say."

Quotes About Good Workouts

"She had streaked blonde hair, long and straight, parted in the middle framing high cheek bones, an aquiline nose and beautiful deep blue eyes. She was young, around 30, tall and lithe with a good body, athletic, not skinny. She wore a sleeveless black dress that exposed her toned arms and shoulders, indicating regular workouts or yoga. There was a hint of vein running the length of her lean muscle. This girl stood out like an arabian in a corral full of draft horses." - Author: Nick Hahn

Quotes About Oratory Skills

"A good turnout at church today. It had nothing to do with the mild weather and a desire to gossip and everything to do with my oratory skills, I am perfectly convinced.

"Dont confuse stupidity for bravery, love. I know you havent eaten anything in days."Something in my patioence snaps. "Id rather die than eat your food and listen to you call me love," I tell him.

He holds my gaze fo a few infinitely long seconds before he pulls a gun out of his jacket pocket. He fires." - Author: Tahereh Mafi
