Almudena Grandes Quotes

"Cuando pasa algo malo, pero malo de verdad, por mucho que llores, lo peor no es llorar, que eso a veces está bien, porque te quedas nuevo, lo peor empieza cuando no puedes llorar más, y entonces te das cuenta de que la tristeza es algo sucio, como un grumo gris, espeso, una pelota de barro dentro de los pulmones, que pesa, y la notas al respirar, todo el tiempo."

Ghiselle St James Quotes

"His proximity, that damn smile, just makes me hot in all the right places, but also pissed as hell. I dont know if I should knee him in the balls or hump his leg like a bitch in heat."

Rebecca Godfrey Quotes

"That girl in the backseat of the beater, I wonder if shes bored d restless, stuck in this small town, hating the slow, stoned laughter and the same rock song on the radio. I hope she caught a glimpse of me through the steam. Even if she only saw my tear widen and my legs kick off the ground, she might think I know where Im going. She might think Ive found a way."

Michael Grunwald Quotes

"But as the Everglades continued to wither, a few of their colleagues began to wonder if conservation really should mean development more than preservation. These heretics did not believe that God had created man in order to improve or redeem nature; they found Gods grace in nature itself."

Julie Wilson Quotes

"Public transit situates us so that we are given license to accept whats right in front of us, but will likely arouse our desire to compare our narrative to someone elses, to give ourselves permission to speculate upon a persons private space, or life, with no fear of recourse or punishment."

Simon Kuper Quotes

"It seems that soccer tournaments create those relationships: people gathered together in pubs and living rooms, a whole country suddenly caring about the same event. A World Cup is the sort of common project that otherwise barely exists in modern societies."

George Chapman Quotes

"Flatterers look like friends, as wolves like dogs."

Oliver Hart Quotes

"Maybe well evolve to a point where fear as an experience is no longer instinctual, but rather an emotion we use to enrich our understanding of why our human ancestors killed each other when they could have loved each other. One day well be holding hands instead of grudges; well eliminate our territorial circuits and know what love is. One day well be holding hands instead of M-16s."

Mary Anne Radmacher Quotes

"it is (often) the quiet gesture which carries the most significance - the one which suddenly directs the symphony."

Anna Hammond Quotes

"I feel that many of the problems our society is plagued with come from having access to information that is too sacred, too sensitive to be transcribed, catalogued, analyzed, decoded and even used."

Quotes About Standing Out

"This might just be two people in a queue, but this has become a mighty battle of wills - a war between all that is right and all that is wrong - and it is I and I alone standing at the gates between one minor slight in the queue-munity, and outright supermarket-based anarchy. In many ways, I am doing this for you." - Author: Danny Wallace

Quotes About Chimpanzee

"Certainly the first true humans were unique by virtue of their large brains.

Quotes About Dying Happily

"Dying is only one thing to be sad over, Mitch. Living unhappily is Something else. So many of the people who came to visit me are unhappy.. Why?...For one thing, the culture we have does not make people feel good about themselves. Were teaching the wrong things. And you have to be strong enough to say if the culture doesnt work, dont buy it. Create your own. Most people cant do it. Theyre more unhappy than me-even in my current condition. I may be dying, but I am surrounded by loving caring souls. How many people can say that?" - Author: Mitch Albom

Quotes About Pascal Religion

"The same sensitivity that opens artists to Being also makes them vulnerable to the dark powers of non-Being. It is no accident that many creative people--including Dante, Pascal, Goethe, Nietzsche, Kierkegaard, Beethoven, Rilke, Blake, and Van Gogh--struggled with depression, anxiety, and despair. They paid a heavy price to wrest their gifts from the clutches of non-Being. But this is what true artists do: they make their own frayed lives the cable for the surges of power generated in the creative force fields of Being and non-Being. (Beyond Religion, p. 124)" - Author: David N. Elkins

"If one chooses sides on emotion then the rebel is the guy to go with. He is fighting for everything men claim to honour, freedom, independance, truth, the right.......all the subjective illusions. All the eternal trigger words. We are minions of the villan of the piece. We confess the illusion and deny the substance." - Author: Glen Cook
