[Falling In Love For The First Time Is A Completely Transcendent Experience. It's Like Eating Pizza-flavored Ice Cream. Your Brain Can't Even Process That Level Of Joy. Love Makes People Do Crazy Things Like Kill Other People Or Shop At Crate & Barrel. I Think On Some Level It Makes Us All Delusional. Deep Down, Our Whole Lives, No Matter How Low Our Self-esteem Gets, We Think, I Have A Special Skill That No One Knows About And If They Knew They'd Be Amazed. And Then Eventually We Meet Someone Who Says, "You Have A Secret Special Skill." And You're Like, "I Know! So Do You!" And They're Like, "I Know!" And Then You're Like, "We Should Eat Pizza Ice Cream Together." And That's What Love Is. It's This Giant Mound Of Pizza-flavored Ice Cream And Delusion]

Pamela Sue Perskin Quotes

"One example was the assertion that a seven-year FBI study revealed no evidence of organized cult or ritual activity in the United Sates. In reality there is no such study.

The bureau responded in writing indicating that no such study existed.[referring to the Lanning report - Lanning, K. V. (1992)Investigators guide to allegations of "ritual" child abuse.

Nick Hahn Quotes

"When Ginny realized I wouldnt ask Max for a divorce, her request became an ultimatum. One day she screamed, "Make up your mind, Simon. Its either me or your wife, you cant have it both ways." She didnt sound vulnerable like a rejected woman, she sounded shrill and demanding with a threatening tone. (terrific line) This had to end, and soon."

Sandra Steingraber Quotes

"In the world outside this glass room, songbirds are feeding and resting in the trees. Some will take off tonight and not land until they reach Venezuela. Sandpipers, plovers, and broad-winged hawks have already left for Patagonia and Panama. Bats are headed for caves in Kentucky and Tennessee. Out in the Atlantic, humpback whales pass by on their way to the Caribbean. Even now, Canada geese are honking toward us from Quebec. It is a good day for the beginnings of journeys.Every time I look at you, I think, Now I cannot die."

Colin Maclaurin Quotes

"Nature  …   has made it impossible for us to have any communication from this earth with the other great bodies of the universe, in our present state; and it is highly possible that he has likewise cut off all communication betwixt the other planets, and betwixt the different systems.… We observe, in all of them, enough to raise our curiosity, but not to satisfy it  …   It does not appear to be suitable to the wisdom that shines throughout all nature, to suppose that we should see so far, and have our curiosity so much raised  …   only to be disappointed at the end  …   This, therefore, naturally leads us to consider our present state as only the dawn or beginning of our existence, and as a state of preparation or probation for farther advancement.…"

Quotes About Loved Ones We Have Lost

"The boy continued to listen to his heart as they crossed the desert. He came to understand its dodges and tricks, and to accept it as it was. He lost his fear, and forgot about his need to go back to the oasis, because, one afternoon, his heart told him that it was happy. "Even though I complain sometimes," it said, "its because Im the heart of a person, and peoples hearts are that way. People are afraid to pursue their most important dreams, because they feel that they dont deserve them, or that theyll be unable to achieve them. We, their hearts, become fearful just thinking of loved ones who go away forever, or of moments that could have been good but werent, or of treasures that might have been found but were forever hidden in the sands. Because, when these things happen, we suffer terribly." - Author: Paulo Coelho

Quotes About The Past Affecting The Future

"Tea is an act complete in its simplicity.When I drink tea, there is only me and the tea.The rest of the world dissolves.There are no worries about the future.No dwelling on past mistakes.Tea is simple: loose-leaf tea, hot pure water, a cup.I inhale the scent, tiny delicate pieces of the tea floating above the cup.I drink the tea, the essence of the leaves becoming a part of me.I am informed by the tea, changed.This is the act of life, in one pure moment, and in this act the truth of the world suddenly becomes revealed: all the complexity, pain, drama of life is a pretense, invented in our minds for no good purpose.There is only the tea, and me, converging." - Author: Thích Nhất Hạnh
