Rob Thomas Matchbox Twenty From Mad World Quotes

"From Mad World: An Oral History of the New Wave Artists and Songs That Defined the 1980s: Michael [Hutchence] is hands down one of the greatest frontmen in music. The style, the voice—all of it. Any way that I was ever influenced by him really comes down to small, pale imitations compared to the real thing. There is a fearlessness about him. Watching him at Wembley Stadium with 70,000 people, he looks as comfortable as if he were in his own living room."

Quotes About Orphans Care

"If only 7 percent of the 2 billion Christians in the world would care for a single orphan in distress, there would effectively be no more orphans.

Quotes About Espace

"Mais quelle étrange leçon de géographie je reçus là! Guillaumet ne menseignait pas lEspagne; il me faisait de lEspagne une amie. Il ne me parlait ni dhydrographie, nie de populations, ni de cheptel. Il ne me parlait pas de Guadix, mais des trois orangers qui, près de Guadix, bordent un champ : " Méfie-toi deux, marque-les sur ta carte... " Et les trois orangers y tenaient désormais plus de place que la Sierra Nevada. Il ne me parlait pas de Lorca, mais dune simple ferme près de Lorca. Dune ferme vivante. Et de son fermier. Et de sa fermière. Et ce couple prenait, perdu dans lespace, à quinze cents kilomètres de nous, une importance démesurée. Bien installés sur le versant de leur montagne, pareils à des gardiens de phare, ils étaient prêts, sous leur étoiles, à porter secours à des hommes.(Terre des Hommes, ch. I)" - Author: Antoine de Saint Exupéry

Quotes About Worrying And God

"It is only that people are far more different than is pretended. All over the world men and women are worrying because they cannot develop as they are supposed to develop. Here and there they have the matter out, and it comforts them. Dont fret yourself, Helen. Develop what you have; love your child. I do not love children. I am thankful to have none. I can play with their beauty and charm, but that is all - nothing real, not one scrap of what there ought to be. And others - others go farther still, and move outside humanity altogether. A place, as well as a person, may catch the glow. Dont you see that all this leads to comfort in the end? It is part of the battle against sameness. Differences - eternal differences, planted by God in a single family, so that there may always be colour; sorrow, perhaps, but colour in the daily grey." - Author: E.M. Forster

Quotes About Having A Great Love

"I was sitting in this small coffee shop a couple days ago and I saw this old man sitting at a table across from me. He looked so lonely, so sad. I was too, but it suddenly occurred to me that some people go through their whole lives never being loved or loving as deeply as I love you. Theres always going to be the chance that I could lose you in this lifetime. Theres nothing any of us can do about the possibility of loss. But in that moment, I decided that I was more interested in focusing on the great privilege Ive been given in having you at all. Ch. 32" - Author: Mia Sheridan

Quotes About Chaste

"If God permits virtue to be persecuted on earth, it is not for us to question his intentions. It may be that his rewards are held over for another life, for is it not true as written in Holy Scripture that the Lord chastenenth only the righteous! And after all, is not virtue its own reward?" - Author: Marquis de Sade
