Beth J Harpaz Quotes

"When theyre little, and you go for years without a good nights sleep, you wonder if theyll ever make it through to morning without finding some reason to wake you up. But then one day you look at the clock and its 7:30 a.m......For a panicked moment, you wonder if your child is---well, I cant even say it. You leap out of bed and run into his room and if you havent wakened him up with all your commotion by then, you stand there for a minute trying to make sure that hes still breathing. You see the chest rising and falling and you let out a sigh. Theres nothing wrong. Hes just growing up. He doesnt need you anymore, is all; he doesnt need to wake you up in the night."

Patricia J Williams Quotes

"In the law, rights are islands of empowerment. . . . Rights contain images of power, and manipulating those images, either visually or linguistically, is central in the making and maintenance of rights. In principle, therefore, the more dizzyingly diverse the images that are propagated, the more empowered we will be as a society."

Quotes About Homer

"Hail, Columbia! Home of the six inch cockroach and the stadium-sized lecture hall. A reservation for rich white people guarded by poor brown people in a sea of urban decay. Where nobody on the faculty has ever spent ten minutes in the freshman dorm, but everybody talks about humanism and compassion. They teach you that military people are scum, trash, the lowest of the low -- and then they assign Homers ILIAD just to develop your sense of irony. Where else can you see three suicides a month dismissed as "slightly above average, but better than Smith or Brown?" - Author: Ted Rall

Quotes About Corn Maze

"How the moon triumphs through the endless nights!How the stars throb and glitter as they wheelTheir thick processions of supernal lightsAround the blue vault obdurate as steel!And men regard with passionate awe and yearningThe mighty marching and the golden burning,And think the heavens respond to what they feel.Boats gliding like dark shadows of a dreamAre glorified from vision as they passThe quivering moonbridge on the deep black stream;Cold windows kindle their dead glooms of glassTo restless crystals; cornice dome and columnEmerge from chaos in the splendour solemn;Like faery lakes gleam lawns of dewy grass.With such a living light these dead eyes shine,These eyes of sightless heaven, that as we gazeWe read a pity, tremulous, divine,Or cold majestic scorn in their pure rays:Fond man! they are not haughty, are not tender;There is no heart or mind in all their splendour,They thread mere puppets all their marvellous maze." - Author: James Thomson

Quotes About Mans Creation

"Life is unlikely to end with humans, even if we burn in a nuclear holocaust. The relentless wheel of evolution will pick up from where we leave off and roll to its predestined goal. If the human mind continues to evolve, enlarge, and expand, so that we are able to recognize our kinship with the creations around us, so that we are able to grasp our oneness with the cosmos, and so that we merge in yoga with the Divine, the long cosmic cycle will disclose its cryptic secret, and the long saga of billions of years of evolution will display its profound significance." - Author: Roy J. Mathew

Quotes About Special Effects

"Im a character and relationship guy, and even with the Saw films, its special-effects peoples jobs to create these scary things. Its not my job. My job is to bring some sense of humanity to the character, no matter how evil he may be. The script is going to take me there." - Author: Tobin Bell

Quotes About Alpha

"I need my warriors whole. You made each other bleed." I ignored Rens bewildered expression. "Now undo the damage.""Youve got to be kidding me." Shay grimaced."I cant begin to tell you how much Im not kidding." I stepped back, folding my arms over my chest. "Until I choose a mate, Im the only alpha here; Ive made it clear that Im not making a choice right now. You two answer to me. Prove your loyalty. Heal each other." - Author: Andrea Cremer

Quotes About Wine And Cigars

"Lexington wasnt a great city, like Philadelphia or New York, but around the Courthouse square, and along Main Street and Broadway, brick buildings reared two and three stories tall, and it was possible to buy almost anything: breeze-soft silks from France that came upriver from New Orleans, fine wines and cigars, pearl necklaces, and canes with ivory handles shaped like parrots or dogs-heads or (in the case of Marys older friend Cash Clay) scantily dressed ladies (but Cash was careful not to carry that one in company)." - Author: Barbara Hambly

Quotes About Pleasant Memories

"The Babar the Elephant book is sitting in front of me. I pick it up and start reading it. I remember reading it as a small Boy and enjoying it and imagining that I was friends with Babar, his constant Companion during all of his adventures. He went to the moon, I went with him. He fought Tomb Raiders in Egypt, I fought alongside him. He rescued his elephant girlfriend from Ivory Hunters on the Savanna, I coordinated the getaway. I loved that goddamn Elephant and I loved being his friend. In a childhood full of unhappiness and rage, Babar is one of the few pleasant memories that I have. Me and Babar, kicking some motherfucking ass." - Author: James Frey

"Does it matter?--losing your legs?...For people will always be kind,And you need not show that you mindWhen the others come in after footballTo gobble their muffins and eggs.Does it matter?--losing your sight?...Theres such splendid work for the blind;And people will always be kind,As you sit on the terrace rememberingAnd turning your face to the light.Do they matter?--those dreams from the pit?...You can drink and forget and be glad,And people wont say that youre mad;For theyll know that youve fought for your country,And no one will worry a bit." - Author: Siegfried Sassoon

It should be as careful as the education given to kings." - Author: Joseph Conrad
