JR Stone Quotes

"Excerpt from "The Long Road from Perdition" for the day:"...Ive always been drawn to the ocean. It is here that I now feel peaceful and can lose my thoughts while immersed in the deafening sounds of waves crashing around me. The spray and mist of the oceans past seem to be a living, breathing yet wounded animal. The fury of the waves never settled and the spew of the foam touched all that dared to sit near it.There is no reason to flinch as the waves spray and crash against the shore. It is a natural progression I have learned to endure. However, it is the rescinding of the waves and fluid release of fury that I struggle to understand and coexist with peacefully. I hope one day to master it."

Rob S Rice Quotes

It didnt like it."

Barbara Hambly Quotes

Amaya Ellman Quotes

"Dawn cackles as she guides me through the all-glass porch. Thinner, paler Reina shuffles about behind Dawn, watching as I slip my boots off. Although she tries to hide her hands, her fingers flicker nervously. I place my boots neatly on the floor of the porch beside the other pairs in the shadows under the coats. Music drifts through to us from a distant room – its the Beach Boys California Dreamin. Dawn looks at me and I smile – theyve put the record on for me. Dawn nods along happily. ‘Hear youre a surfer boy! she says and she mimics riding a wave."

Quotes About Omul

"Şi mai ales, cine nu poate să aibă în ziua de azi un şoc ? Şi dumneata, şi eu, toţi am trecut prin asta ; există doar atîtea cazuri.

Quotes About Strange Friends

"It seems the older we get, the tighter our inner circle becomes.

Quotes About Walking Down The Road

"Why is it when you fall in love with someone (and especially when you are trying extremely hard not to do so), the world seems to conspire against you in order to cause that person to be the only thing on your mind? It doesnt matter what youre doing: reading, driving, walking down the road. You just look up and, BANG, there is their name or some form of it. Then you smile, and you think of them. Thats when you realize there isnt any way to get out of this one alive and unscathed, because its already a battle that youve lost, and the war is going to rage on forever after." - Author: Jennifer Megan Varnadore

Quotes About Busy Schedules

"You are worthy! Let those words sink deep into your heart. You are worthy. Life can get overwhelming for us, as our busy schedules keep us on our toes. Sometimes we forget that we need to intentionally slow down, take a deep breath, and remind ourselves of our purpose, the very foundation of why we do what we do. When we neglect to quiet our souls and rest in Gods amazing grace, we miss out on the intimate opportunities where God assures us of our worthiness, clarifies our purpose, and strengthens us to endure each day." - Author: Jennifer Smith
