"Beware to entertain strangers, thereby you may entertain an angel unawares...New Testament."

John Larroquette Quotes

"Again, as egotistical as I am, as self-centered as I am, and as much as I love strangers idolizing me, I find it very crass to be self-promoter in a way."

Cassandra Peterson Quotes

"I love, love, love music - have since I was a kid, and Im still really into music - and I became a singer because I was too stupid to learn how to play an instrument, I guess."

Irvin Yalom Quotes

"More than death, one fears the utter isolation that accompanies it. We try to go through life two by two, but each one of us must die alone- no one can die our death with us or for us. The shunning of the dying by the living prefigures final absolute abandonment"

Jacqueline Rhoades Quotes

You werent carrying that poker to protect yourself against no wolf."

Sierra Demulder Quotes

"When he sleeps,the snoring does not bother me:the rhythmic growl, gravel shovedacross the sidewalk of his throat.It is the grasping, desperate wayin which he takes in air—his gulping lungsas if every dream is filled with waterand he is trying to inflatethe life jacket under his skin.I babble in my sleep. He believesI am trying to tell him how my heart works,says he will translate the manual one day.I want to ask him: am I the ocean?Are you drowning in everythingI dont say when Im awake?"—Heart Apnea"

John Noble Wilford Quotes

"Mars tugs at the human imagination like no other planet. With a force mightier than gravity, it attracts the eye to the shimmering red presence in the clear night sky..."

David Kinnaman Quotes

"When outsiders claim that we are unchristian, it is a reflection of this jumbled (and predominately negative) set of perceptions. When they see Christians not acting like Jesus, they quickly conclude that the group deserves an unchristian label. Like a corrupted computer file or a bad photocopy, Christianity, they say, is no longer in pure form, and so they reject it. One quarter of outsiders say therefore most perception of Christianity is that the faith has changed for the worse. It has gotten off-track and is not what Christ intended. Modern-day Christianity no longer seems Christian."

Asghar Farhadi Quotes

"I feel that it means a lot to the people of Iran that my film is represented at the Oscars, and it makes me happy to bring them that joy, that Im representing them and that Im able to give them that element of pleasure to be the envoy from Iran. Its a very pleasant thing."

Quotes About Passed Father

"It was Buckley, as my father and sister joined the group and listened to Grandma Lynns countless toasts, who saw me. He saw me standing under the rustic colonial clock and stared. He was drinking champagne. There were strings coming out from all around me, reaching out, waving in the air. Someone passed him a brownie. He held it in his hand but did not eat. He saw my shape and face, which had not changed-the hair still parted down the middle, the chest still flat and hips undeveloped-and wanted to call out my name. It was only a moment, and then I was gone." - Author: Alice Sebold

Quotes About Dissimilar

"And Anne could have said much, and did long to say a little in defence of her friends not very dissimilar claims to theirs, but her sense of personal respect to her father prevented her. She made no reply. She left it to himself to recollect, that Mrs Smith was not the only widow in Bath between thirty and forty, with little to live on, and no surname of dignity." - Author: Jane Austen

Quotes About Hector

"They were both going to the big country where there were more psychiatrists than anywhere else in the world. We could just as well say more swimming pools, more Nobel prizewinners, more strategic bombers, more apple pies, more computers, more natural parks, more libraries, more cheerleaders, more serial killers, more newspapers, more raccoons, many of many more things, because it was the country of More. No doubt because the people who lived there had left their own countries precisely because they wanted more, especially more freedom."

Quotes About Aoi

"Proof then, has retreated in the face of belief. Science, once heralded as the arbiter of truth, has had its facade of objectivity punctured. Intellectuals may point to the uncertainty of Heisenberg, but generally this has more to do with the growing distrust of statistics and the knowledge that scientists in the pay of governments and multi-nationals are no more objective than their masters. Science, once the avowed enemy of religion, now sees books BT Christian physicists and Taoist mathematicians. Science sells washing powders and status symbols and comes in the form of icons of technological nostalgia." - Author: Phil Hine

Quotes About Colored Skin

"Snarling an oath from an Icelandic saga, I reclaimed my place at the head of the queue. "Oy!" yelled a punk rocker, with studs in his cranium. "Theres a fackin queue!"Never apologize, advises Lloyd George. Say it again, only this time, ruder. "I know theres a fackin queue! I already queued in it once and I am not going to queue in it again just because Nina Simone over there wont sell me a ruddy ticket!"A colored yeti in a clip-on uniform swooped. "Wassa bovver?""This old man here reckons his colostomy bag entitles him to jump the queue," said the skinhead, "and make racist slurs about the lady of Afro-Caribbean extraction in the advance-travel window."I couldnt believe I was hearing this." - Author: David Mitchell

Quotes About Julianna

"No, you are not because I am going to," Roxbury said darkly, probably still angry about those pesky rumors about his preferences. "How could you deny me that satisfaction?" she asked. "Very well, my dear wife, we shall seek and destroy the Man About Town together," Roxbury agreed. "Thats the most romantic thing anyone has ever said to me," Julianna said sweetly, and her husband grinned." - Author: Maya Rodale

Quotes About Keeping In Touch

"[Wild animals], and the beautiful landscapes that sustain them...possess a value and a virtue regardless of our dwindling connection with them. It seems that there is a virtue and a wisdom in keeping some things beyond our reach: that the protection of wilderness itself is imperative... We have touched, and are consuming, everything. The world is very old, and we are so new. I like the feeling of awe--what the late writer Wallace Stegner called the birth of awe--in beholding wild country not reduced by man. I like to remember that it is wild country that gives rise to wild animals; and that the marvelous specificity of wild animals reminds us to wake up, to let our senses be inflamed by every scent and sound and sight and taste and touch of the world. I like to remember that we are not here forever, and not here alone, and that the respect with which we behold the wild world matters, if anything does." - Author: Rick Bass
