Amanda Sledz Quotes

"Monday ushers in a particularly impressive clientele of red-eyed people properly pressed into dry-cleaned suits in neutral tones. They leave their equally well-buttoned children idling in SUVs while dashing to grab double-Americanos and foamy sweet lattes, before click-clacking hasty escapes in ass-sculpting heels and polished loafers with bowl-shaped haircuts that age every face to 40. My imagination speed evolves their unfortunate offspring from car seat-strapped oxygen-starved fast-blooming locusts, to the knuckle-drag harried downtown troglodytes theyll inevitably become. One by one I capture their flat-formed heads between index finger and thumb for a little crush-crush-crushing, ever aware that if Im lucky one day their charitable contributions will fund my frown-faced found art project to baffle someones hallway."

Weldon Kees Quotes

What we have learned is not what we were told.I watch the snow, feel for the heartbeat that is not there."

Quotes About Hindu

"Selflessness involves giving up your self. You become a martyr. Like the Hindu kamikaze warriors. These Japanese Hindus chose to give up their lives, and they were killed if they didnt. Imagine what their families felt. One day you have a father, and next, youre watching him fly a plane into a ship on Pearl Harbor on television. Those kids didnt do anything wrong. They just lived in an evil country. The axis of evil. That sort of evil is beyond anything you or I will experience in our lifetimes. So be glad. Be glad we live in the US of A. Be glad we get to choose, with our freedoms. Now get out there and fight!" - Author: Bill Konigsberg

Quotes About Civilization And Savagery

"Richard straightened with a sigh. "People are often more willing to believe lies than truth. Lies can be made to sound pleasant. The truth, by its very nature, isnt always so attractive.""That leaves peaceful people no choice but to fight for their lives or fall to the blades of madmen. In such a situation, there is no middle ground. There is no such thing as compromise between civilization and savagery. Civilization must always defend itself against savagery or else fall to it.""I guess thats our part in this?"Richard nodded. "Ive never wanted to fight, to be in a war, to see good people die, to have to kill. I just wanted to live my life in peace. Others wouldnt allow me that life of peace. The battles I fight have always been to survive and live in peace, not to conquer." - Author: Terry Goodkind

Quotes About Ice Cream And Life

"The floor of ice cream parlor bothered me. It was black-and-white checkboard tile, bigger than supermarket checkboard.

The floor meant yes, no, this, that, up, down, day, night -all the indecisions and opposites that were bad enough in life without having them spelled out for you on the floor." - Author: Susanna Kaysen
