Nico Lang Quotes

"How we document ourselves speaks volumes about our ability to know ourselves and write our own histories, and we need more opportunities to do that as our histories are unfolding."

Lynn Messina Quotes

"Childhood friends are continuity, uninterrupted connections between selves, and you hold on them. You hold on them and you love them, but sometimes theyre not quite comfortable."

Cecile Pineda Quotes

"I live in a world in which 40 men control wealth equal to that of nearly 80 countries, where to maintain their hegemony, countless acts of mayhem and massacre must occur every day. This is the reality that forms and reforms my days as it does those of all people on this hapless planet. I do not think any more that writing - mine or anothers - can change the world. Perhaps in their small way, writers can answer for those who are voiceless in their extreme deprivation and suffering, but at best, in the very smallest scheme, writing can provide a moment of grace, both for her who writes and him who reads, in a very dark world."

John Hersey Quotes

"This private estate was far enough away from the explosion so that its bamboos, pines, laurel, and maples were still alive, and the green place invited refugees—partly because they believed that if the Americans came back, they would bomb only buildings; partly because the foliage seemed a center of coolness and life, and the estates exquisitely precise rock gardens, with their quiet pools and arching bridges, were very Japanese, normal, secure; and also partly (according to some who were there) because of an irresistible, atavistic urge to hide under leaves."

Sloan Wilson Quotes

"Success in almost any field depends more on energy and drive than it does on intelligence. This explains why we have so many stupid leaders."

Quotes About Marvel Love

"The cyclone had set the house down gently, very gently – for a cyclone—in the midst of a country of marvelous beauty. There were lovely patches of green sward all about, with stately trees bearing rich and luscious fruits. Banks of gorgeous flowers were on every hand, and birds with rare and brilliant plumage sang and fluttered in the trees and bushes. A little way off was a small brook, rushing and sparkling along between green banks, and murmuring in a voice very grateful to a little girl who had lived so long on the dry, gray prairies." - Author: L. Frank Baum

Quotes About The Ocean In The Bible

"I say, White-Jacket, dye mind me? there never was a very great man yet who spent all his life inland. A snuff of the sea, my boy, is inspiration; and having been once out of sight of land, has been the making of many a true poet and the blasting of many pretenders; for, dye see, theres no gammon about the ocean; it knocks the false keel right off a pretenders bows; it tells him just what he is, and makes him feel it, too. A sailors life, I say, is the thing to bring us mortals out. What does the blessed Bible say? Dont it say that we main-top-men alone see the marvellous sights and wonders? Dont deny the blessed Bible, now! dont do it! How it rocks up here, my boy!" holding on to a shroud; "but it only proves what Ive been saying—the sea is the place to cradle genius! Heave and fall, old sea!" - Author: Herman Melville

Quotes About Upside Down

"There is talk of a new astrologer [Nicolaus Copernicus] who wants to prove that the earth moves and goes around instead of the sky, the sun, the moon, just as if somebody were moving in a carriage or ship might hold that he was sitting still and at rest while the earth and the trees walked and moved. But that is how things are nowadays: when a man wishes to be clever he must . . . invent something special, and the way he does it must needs be the best! The fool wants to turn the whole art of astronomy upside-down. However, as Holy Scripture tells us, so did Joshua bid the sun to stand still and not the earth.[Martin Luther stating his objection to heliocentrism due to his Scriptures geocentrism]" - Author: Martin Luther

Quotes About Reminding Me Of You

"Connor asked that I make you like me," Ashton casually says, easing his tight grip on my hips so that Im not pressed directly against his erection, allowing me to breathe again. His mouth twists as if from something sour. "Since he really likes you." Then he sighs, looking over my head, as he adds, "And Im his best friend." As if hes reminding himself of that. Right, Connor. I swallow. The mention of Connor and his feelings for me while my hands are still flattened against his best friends chest, the one that I pawed repeatedly not even two weeks ago, fills me with guilt. "So?" Serious dark eyes lock on my face. "How do I do that, Irish? How do I make you like me?" - Author: K.A. Tucker
