[God What An Outfield,' He Says. 'What A Left Field.' He Looks Up At Me, And I Look Down At Him. 'This Must Be Heaven,' He Says.No. It's Iowa,' I Reply Automatically. But Then I Feel The Night Rubbing Softly Against My Face Like Cherry Blossoms; Look At The Sleeping Girl-child In My Arms, Her Small Hand Curled Around One Of My Fingers; Think Of The Fierce Warmth Of The Woman Waiting For Me In The House; Inhale The Fresh-cut Grass Small That Seems Locked In The Air Like Permanent Incense; And Listen To The Drone Of The Crowd, As Below Me Shoelss Joe Jackson Tenses, Watching The Angle Of The Distant Bat For A Clue As To Where The Ball Will Be Hit.I Think You're Right, Joe,' I Say, But Softly Enough Not To Disturb His Concentration.]

Quotes About Legitimate Power

"Since Aureliano at theat time had very confused notions about the difference between Conservatives and Liberals, his faither in law gave him some schematic lessons. The Liberals, he said, were Freemasons, bad people, wanting ot hang priests, to institute civil marriage and divorce, to recognize the rights of illegitimate children as equal to those of legitimate ones, and to cut the country up inot a federal system that would take power away from teh supereme authority. The Conservatives, on the other hand, who had recieved their power directly from God, proposed the establishment of public order and family morality. They were the defenders of the faith of Christ, of the principle of authority, and were no prepared to permit the country to be broken down inot autonomous entities." - Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez

Artemis paused for laughter and was surprised when it did not arrive. "That was a little joke. I read in a presentation manual that a joke often serves to break the ice. And I actually worked icebreaking into the joke, so there were layers to my humor." - Author: Eoin Colfer

Quotes About Ebola Virus

"One room in the hospital had not been cleaned up. No one, not even the nuns, had had the courage to enter the obstetric ward. When Joel Breman and the team went in, they found basins of foul water standing among discarded, bloodstained syringes. The room had been abandoned in the middle of childbirths, where dying mothers had aborted fetuses infected with Ebola. The team had discovered the red chamber of the virus queen at the end of the earth, where the life-form had amplified through mothers and their unborn children. (95)" - Author: Richard Preston

Quotes About Writing And Writers

"As writers we live life twice, like a cow that eats its food once and then regurgitates it to chew and digest it again. We have a second chance at biting into our experience and examining it. ...This is our life and its not going to last forever. There isnt time to talk about someday writing that short story or poem or novel. Slow down now, touch what is around you, and out of care and compassion for each moment and detail, put pen to paper and begin to write." - Author: Natalie Goldberg

Here we go again.His grin widens into a smile and he winks at me. Im pretty sure my toes are numb. I watch him turn away. Before his head completely disappears, I consider what Jenna said. Maybe I should go and ask for the treat..." - Author: M. Leighton
