Ralph Macchio Quotes

"Guys like Spielberg and Zemeckis and really anybody who is a storyteller-filmmaker today has studied Hitchcock and the way he visually tells a story.

Quotes About Sometimes Friends

"So fare thee well, poor devil of a Sub-Sub, whose commentator I am. Thou belongest to that hopeless, sallow tribe which no wine of this world will ever warm; and for whom even Pale Sherry would be too rosy-strong; but with whom one sometimes loves to sit, and feel poor-devilish, too; and grow convivial upon tears; and say to them bluntly, with full eyes and empty glasses, and in not altogether unpleasant sadness— Give it up, Sub-Subs! For by how much more pains ye take to please the world, by so much the more shall ye for ever go thankless! Would that I could clear out Hampton Court and the Tuileries for ye! But gulp down your tears and hie aloft to the royal-mast with your hearts; for your friends who have gone before are clearing out the seven-storied heavens, and making refugees of long pampered Gabriel, Michael, and Raphael, against your coming. Here ye strike but splintered hearts together—there, ye shall strike unsplinterable glasses!" - Author: Herman Melville

Quotes About Collective Effort

"Emotions and thoughts are not who we are, they are merely emotions and thoughts, collective waves of energy moving through the web of life. They never stay as they are or hold the same intensity. They are provisional. Hence no matter how beautiful or horrible they are, they will change, with or without any effort. Just acknowledge and let them go, regardless of what they are, and you will know who you are." - Author: Franco Santoro

Aemon will draw it out and patch you up, and well get milk of the poppy for the pain."She just smiled at that. "Dyou remember that cave? We should have stayed in that cave. I told you so.""Well go back to the cave," he said." Youre not going to die, Ygritte. Youre not.""Oh." Ygritte cupped his cheek with her hand. "You know nothing, Jon Snow," she sighed, dying." - Author: George R.R. Martin

Quotes About Species

"Marissa came around the corner, looking Grace Kelly-fine as usual.

"Good… Lord… look at those pants."Butch winced. "Yeah, I know. Theyre—""Could you come over here?" She started backing down the hall to their bedroom. "I need you to come back here for a minute. Or ten."Butchs bonding scent flared to a dull roar, and V knew damn well the guys body was hardening for sex."Baby, you can have me for as long as you want me."Just as the cop left the living room, he shot a look over his shoulder.

Quotes About Windows To The World

"To the Kathakali Man these stories are his children and his childhood. He has grown up within them. They are the house he was raised in, the meadows he played in. They are his windows and his way of seeing. So when he tells a story, he handles it as he would a child of his own. He teases it. He punishes it. He sends it up like a bubble. He wrestles it to the ground and lets it go again. He laughs at it because he loves it. He can fly you across whole worlds in minutes, he can stop for hours to examine a wilting leaf. Or play with a sleeping monkeys tail. He can turn effortlessly from the carnage of war into the felicity of a woman washing her hair in a mountain stream. From the crafty ebullience of a rakshasa with a new idea into a gossipy Malayali with a scandal to spread. From the sensuousness of a woman with a baby at her breast into the seductive mischief of Krishnas smile. He can reveal the nugget of sorrow that happiness contains. The hidden fish of shame in a sea of glory." - Author: Arundhati Roy

Pop star Candy Cane trades her controversial career for being a housewife (which was a move that is very unpopular with many of her young fans), and Jacquel Rassenworth is still the Internets biggest fame-nut (cue APPLAUSE)." - Author: Jacquel Chrissy May
