Julie Wright Quotes

"We all carry around baskets of eggs, and these eggs are precious, they represent information about us, our concerns, our needs, our lives, our downfalls, everything. As we meet people and become more comfortable with them, we toss some of our eggs to these people and they, in turn, place those eggs in their baskets. But, there are times, when out of desperation, or immaturity, or whatever, we throw too many eggs at once, and the recipient cant catch them all, and a few get broken, and we then find out that this other person knows too much about us, or at least more than they wanted to know, and that then destroys the ability to truly be friends."

Mike Timmis Quotes

"We do not work for unity; we work to end and erase disunity. Unity is of God; disunity is of man. In matters of doctrine and practice of conscience, our guide should be this traditional saying: "In essentials, unity. In nonessentials, liberty. But in all things, love."

Katie Grissom Quotes

"Life is about the adventures you take and the memories you make. So travel often and live life with open eyes and an open heart."

Hope Edelman Quotes

"Writers seek to create order out of the chaos of everyday life, and to extract meaning from both the tragic and the mundane"

Jessica N Watkins Quotes

"Before the dick, I had my shit together. I had goals, dreams, and aspirations. But after the dick, I was lost, turned out all over again, and needed Iyanla to fix my life."

Pamela Dean Quotes

"Look," said Janet, irritated, "if the thing you liked best to do in the world was read, and somebody offered to pay you room and board and give you a liberal arts degree if you would just read for four years, wouldnt you do it?"

Gabrielle Roth Quotes

"Compassion is a chameleon: it can wear the face of fear, anger, sadness, joy or even dispassion, depending on whats needed at the time. The compassionate Buddha has a smile in one eye and a tear in the other, and our Buddha mission is to lead people to true freedom, not to hold their hand and tell them that everything is going to be all right. In teaching, compassion means doing whatever needs to be done to get to the next phase."

Ramakrishna Quotes

"As long as I live, so long do I learn."

Kay Redfield Jamison Quotes

"[The] persevering steadiness of my mother, her belief in seeing things through, and her great ability to love and learn, listen and change, helped keep me alive through all the years of pain and nightmare that were to come. She could not have known how difficult it would be to deal with madness; had no preparation for what to do with madness--none of us did--but consistent with her ability to love, and her native will, she handled it with empathy and intelligence. It never occurred to her to give up."

William Sears Quotes

"Oftentimes I felt ridiculous giving my seal of approval to what was in reality such a natural thing to do, sort of like reinventing the wheel and extolling its virtues. Had parents intuition sunk so low that some strange man had to tell modern women that it was okay to sleep with their babies?"

Quotes About Vanzetti

"The trial of Jesus of Nazareth, the trial and rehabilitation of Joan of Arc, any one of the witchcraft trials in Salem during 1691, the Moscow trials of 1937 during which Stalin destroyed all of the founders of the 1924 Soviet REvolution, the Sacco-Vanzetti trial of 1920 through 1927- there are many trials such as these in which the victim was already condemned to death before the trial took place, and it took place only to cover up the real meaning: the accused was to be put to death. These are trials in which the judge, the counsel, the jury, and the witnesses are the criminals, not the accused. For any believer in capital punishment, the fear of an honest mistake on the part of all concerned is cited as the main argument against the final terrible decision to carry out the death sentence. There is the frightful possibility in all such trials as these that the judgement has already been pronounced and the trial is just a mask for murder." - Author: Katherine Anne Porter

Quotes About Fire And Gasoline

"In my biology class, wed talked about the definition of life: to be classified as a living creature, a thing needs to eat, breathe, reproduce, and grow. Dogs do, rocks dont, trees do, plastic doesnt. Fire, by that definition, is vibrantly alive. It eats everything from wood to flesh, excreting the waste as ash, and it breathes air just like a human, taking in oxygen and emitting carbon. Fire grows, and as it spreads, it creates new fires that spread out and make new fires of their own. Fire drinks gasoline and excretes cinders, it fights for territory, it loves and hates. Sometimes when I watch people trudging through their daily routines, I think that fire is more alive than we are–brighter, hotter, more sure of itself and where it wants to go. Fire doesnt settle; fire doesnt tolerate; fire doesnt get by.Fire does.Fire is." - Author: Dan Wells

Quotes About Pledging

"Kenny is a drug, and Ive just had the best hit of my life. Im not losing this addiction. Im in, all the way, pledging my voluntarily servitude to the gateway of my desire. Kenny was the freedom I was longing for. Love and all this wild pent up desire, proved to be the combination that set me free. But only Kenny had the power to unleash me. She scrubbed the impurity from my life and washed clean the world, so I could see it stark and clear for the very first time. Kenny perfumed my existence with her regal charm, her sovereign splendor. Kenny is in everyway sublime." - Author: Addison Moore

Hes your brother, and hes always taken care of you." - Author: Cassandra Clare

Quotes About Implanting

"False memory research was mentioned. It might be easy to implant a false memory in a younger sibling. But false memory resarchers seem to understand that its not so easy implanting false memories in non-relatives. These researchers gather information from the subjects family members to create a realistic, believable false memory. Then participants are informed that the source was a family member, someone who was supposedly there at the time. That should work.But even with all this help, results range from 0 to barely significant.To create this level of plausibility, a therapist would have to contact the clients family member. The therapist would then ask the relative for help in creating a plausible false memory about the clients molestation. And the relative would have to say they were there and saw it happen.However, so far, there appears to be no evidence that this has occurred." - Author: Lynn S. Crook

Quotes About Kabah

"Merkabah is translated as either meaning the throne of god or chariot. Both definitions imply a means of spiritual ascension, not a physical one. They only have it partly right." - Author: L.Z.Marie
