[Fairy Tales In Childhood Are Stepping Stones Throughout Life, Leading The Way Through Trouble And Trial. The Value Of Fairy Tales Lies Not In A Brief Literary Escape From Reality, But In The Gift Of Hope That Goodness Truly Is More Powerful Than Evil And That Even The Darkest Reality Can Lead To A Happily Ever After. Do Not Take That Gift Of Hope Lightly. It Has The Power To Conquer Despair In The Midst Of Sorrow, To Light The Darkness In The Valleys Of Life, To Whisper "One More Time" In The Face Of Failure. Hope Is What Gives Life To Dreams, Making The Fairy Tale The Reality.]

"As a scar commemorates what happened, so is memory but itself a scar."

Max Landis Quotes

"You usually find me writing what I like to think of as intelligent summer action and genre films."

Heidi Julavits Quotes

"Like Semmering Academy, the Grove School was a Gothic pile of bricks run by 1950s-era chalk drones, which maintained its cultural viability by perpetuating a weirdly seductive anxiety throughout its community. Mary herself was a victim of the seduction; despite the trying and repetitive emotional requirements of her job, she remained eternally fascinated by the wicker-thin girls and their wicker-thin mothers, all of them favoring dark wool skirts and macintoshes and unreadably far-away expressions; if she squinted, they could have emerged intact from any of the last seven decades."

Octavio Paz Quotes

"Entre el lenguaje, ser por naturaleza social, y el escritor, que sólo engendra en la soledad, se establece así una relación muy extraña: gracias al escritor el lenguaje amorfo, horizontal, se yergue e individualiza; gracias al lenguaje, el escritor moderno, rotas las otras vías de comunicación con su pueblo y su tiempo, participa en la vida de la Ciudad."

Barbara Rubel Quotes

"Some people dream of SUCCESS while other wake up and work hard at it."

Thomas Stephen Szasz Quotes

"The concept of disease is fast replacing the concept of responsibility. With increasing zeal Americans use and interpret the assertion "I am sick" as equivalent to the assertion "I am not responsible": Smokers say they are not responsible for smoking, drinkers that they are not responsible for drinking, gamblers that they are not responsible for gambling, and mothers who murder their infants that they are not responsible for killing. To prove their point — and to capitalize on their self-destructive and destructive behavior — smokers, drinkers, gamblers, and insanity acquitees are suing tobacco companies, liquor companies, gambling casinos, and physicians."

NK Jemisin Quotes

"The priests lesson: beware the Nightlord, for his pleasure is a mortals doom. My grandmothers lesson: beware love, especially with the wrong man."

Anne Clendening Quotes

"Love is a lady. Lust is a tramp."

Thomas Sprat Quotes

"A great proportion of the wretchedness which has embittered married life, has originated in a negligence of trifles."

Anita Brookner Quotes

"Accountability in friendship is the equivalent of love without strategy."

Quotes About Truth Nietzsche

"Is this Tree of Life a God one could worship? Pray to? Fear? Probably not. But it did make the ivy twine and the sky so blue, so perhaps the song I love tells a truth after all. The Tree of Life is neither perfect nor infinite in space or time, but it is actual, and if it is not Anselms "Being greater than which nothing can be conceived," it is surely a being that is greater than anything any of us will ever conceive of in detail worthy of its detail. Is something sacred? Yes, say I with Nietzsche. I could not pray to it, but I can stand in affirmation of its magnificence. This world is sacred." - Author: Daniel Dennett

Quotes About Let It Be

"Ask your child for information in a gentle, nonjudgmental way, with specific, clear questions. Instead of "How was your day?" try "What did you do in math class today?"

Try to avoid asking, in the overly bright voice of parents everywhere, "Did you have fun in school today?!" Shell sense how important it is that the answer be yes." - Author: Susan Cain

"Children accept the conditions they are born into, and, to a degree, I was getting used to the bombings, fires, and death around me. I remember that I thought those things were normal.
