Quotes About Sick Daughter

"I am content to be hated, and bloody, and outnumbered. For in this sickened world, it is better to believe in something too fiercely than to believe in nothing."Words, words, wonderful words. But lies too. "No, it isnt!" shouted Mosca the Housefly, Quillam Myes daughter. "Not if what youre believin isnt blinkin well True! You shouldnt just go believin things for no reason, pertickly if you got a sword in your hand! Sacred just means something youre not meant to think about properly, an you should never stop thinking! Show me something I can kick, and hit with rocks, and set fire to, and leave out in the rain, and think about, and if its still standing after all that then maybe, just maybe, Ill start to believe in it, but not till then. An if all were left with is muck and wickedness and no gods, then wed better face it and get used to it because its better than a lie." - Author: Frances Hardinge

Quotes About So Over It

"Can I be honest here? I dont read forewords. Can I be painfully honest? I dont even know what forewords are for. Am I supposed to somehow convince you to buy this book? Are you, even now, standing in a bookstore, reading this, your gut roiling with indecision? That doesnt seem to make sense to me. For one thing, you can see the folks in this anthology. Youve read their names on the cover. It couldnt be more impressive if it included Lord Vishnu and Optimus Prime." - Author: Shawn Speakman

Quotes About Genesee

"Im completely library educated. Ive never been to college. I went down to the library when I was in grade school in Waukegan, and in high school in Los Angeles, and spent long days every summer in the library. I used to steal magazines from a store on Genesee Street, in Waukegan, and read them and then steal them back on the racks again. That way I took the print off with my eyeballs and stayed honest. I didnt want to be a permanent thief, and I was very careful to wash my hands before I read them. But with the library, its like catnip, I suppose: you begin to run in circles because theres so much to look at and read. And its far more fun than going to school, simply because you make up your own list and you dont have to listen to anyone. When I would see some of the books my kids were forced to bring home and read by some of their teachers, and were graded on—well, what if you dont like those books?" - Author: Ray Bradbury

Quotes About Stone And Water

"Home is where one starts from. As we grow olderThe world becomes stranger, the pattern more complicatedOf dead and living. Not the intense momentIsolated, with no before and after,But a lifetime burning in every momentAnd not the lifetime of one man onlyBut of old stones that cannot be deciphered.There is a time for the evening under starlight,A time for the evening under lamplight(The evening with the photograph album).Love is most nearly itselfWhen here and now cease to matter.Old men ought to be explorersHere or there does not matterWe must be still and still movingInto another intensityFor a further union, a deeper communionThrough the dark cold and the empty desolation,The wave cry, the wind cry, the vast watersOf the petrel and the porpoise. In my end is my beginning." - Author: T.S. Eliot

Quotes About Exertion

"No longer enslaved or made dependent by force of law, the great majority are so by force of poverty; they are still chained to a place, to an occupation, and to conformity with the will of an employer, and debarred, by the accident of birth both from the enjoyments, and from the mental and moral advantages, which others inherit without exertion and independently of desert. That this is an evil equal to almost any of those against which mankind have hitherto struggled, the poor are not wrong in believing. Is it a necessary evil? They are told so by, those who do not feel it---by those who have gained the prizes in the lottery of life. But it was also said that slavery, that despotism, that all the privileges of oligarchy, were necessary." - Author: John Stuart Mill

Quotes About Attraction And Love

"Wed spent years as adversaries, two predators sharing territory and a certain, unwelcome attraction. Somehow, during all those years I spent outwardly acquiescing to his demands while making sure I held my own, Id won his respect. Id had werewolves love me and hate me, but Id never had one respect me before. Not even Samuel. Adam respected me enough to act on my suspicions. It meant a lot." - Author: Patricia Briggs

Quotes About New Lovers

"But in the end, there will still be a morning like this one, full of new light, and a distant voice will be heard, like a memory of before we became people. And the tones of a song will well up, the gentle lull of the first mother. This song, yes indeed, will be ours, the memory of a deep root that they were unable to wrench out of us. This voice will give us the strength for a new beginning, and upon hearing it, the corpses will find peace in their graves and the survivors will embrace life with the simple joy of young lovers. All this will happen if we are able to rid ourselves of this time that has made animals out of us. Let us strive to die like the people we no longer are." - Author: Mia Couto
