Samantha Hayes Quotes

"The sounds of a man crying is a piteous noise, almost worse than an infants cry. Babies are either hungry, sick or bored, or need changing. This man was none of those things. He was wrapped in grief as deep as the ocean, and no one could do anything to help him."

Guus Kuijer Quotes

"The angels in heaven covered their eyes with their hands and sobbed loudly, because that is what they always do when a man hits his wife. A profound sadness settled over the earth...God was silent in every language. The angels tried to dry their tears, but their handkerchiefs were so soaked through that is started raining even in the deserts."

Yasmin Tajuddin Quotes

"You can learn from mistakes only when you realize you made one."

Fuyumi Soryo Quotes

"The things that really shake the human soul arent beauty or kindness. Although such things are certainly moving, but those feelings dont last long. But... anger or sadness are different. They leave an undelible mark. Even after the wound heals... you can never forget the pain completely."

Lindsey Leavitt Quotes

Stephen Craig Quotes

"Momentarily, through one good eye, he could see the moon. Something below moved and he span around to where he could see the house. His family were in there. Alone. He could not protect them and he would not see them again."

Alessandro DAvenia Quotes

"Le persone sono un po simili alle stelle: magari brillano lontane, ma brillano, e hanno sempre qualcosa di interessante da raccontare...però ci vuole tempo, a volte tanto tempo, perchè le storie arrivino al nostro cuore, come la luce agli occhi."

"And I only do what I do in life, which is model."

Quotes About Active Minds

"Which is an interactive sport for our family, since Gil likes to groan over the writing and point out the plot twists ahead of time, and Jeremy tears his hair out over the historical inaccuracies, and Dad makes corny jokes, till Mom reminds us, loudly, that some people are trying to watch the movie. Then well all quiet down for about five minutes, until Olivia remarks that the costume designer should have dressed the star in kitten heels instead, because its a lot harder to run in stilettos." - Author: Caitlen Rubino Bradway

"Its probably all done with wheels." - Author: Dorothy Dunnett

Quotes About Luxe

"I am wired by nature to love the same toys that the world loves. I start to fit in. I start to love what others love. I start to call earth "home." Before you know it, I am calling luxeries "needs" and using my money just the way unbelievers do. I begin to forget the war. I dont think much about people perishing. Missions and unreached people drop out of my mind. I stop dreaming about the triumphs of grace. I sink into a secular mind-set that looks first to what man can do, not what God can do. It is a terrible sickness. And I thank God for those who have forced me again and again toward a wartime mind-set." - Author: John Piper

Quotes About Fiery Eyes

"He settled over me, not touching, not quite. The electricity between us snapped and pulled. A wild feeling pulsed through me. I lifted my hands, sinking them into his hair, pulling him closer. I swept my lips over his, and his body trembled. His fiery eyes drifted shut as my thumb moved on his bottom lip. My hands were on the move, slipping over the thick cords in his neck and back, around his chest and down. Lower, over the hard planes of his stomach. He sucked in a sharp breath." - Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout

Kat clapped excitedly. "There used to be a street named after Ali Bell, but it was changed because nobody crosses Ali Bell and lives. True story." - Author: Gena Showalter

Quotes About Conjecture

"The agnostic does not simply say, "l do not know." He goes another step, and he says, with great emphasis, that you do not know. He insists that you are trading on the ignorance of others, and on the fear of others. He is not satisfied with saying that you do not know, -- he demonstrates that you do not know, and he drives you from the field of fact -- he drives you from the realm of reason -- he drives you from the light, into the darkness of conjecture -- into the world of dreams and shadows, and he compels you to say, at last, that your faith has no foundation in fact." - Author: Robert G. Ingersoll
