[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 Bye Bye

"His eyes were a warm brown, gentle but intense. "You know...I never gave you a good-bye kiss."It was hard to breathe. "Oh. Thats right.""I was supposed to do that so you wouldnt be lying." ...He leaned toward me gradually, as though giving me time to change my mind. I shut my eyes and let his lips come down on mine. Hudson wasnt in a hurry to say good-bye. The kiss was slow, caressing. All the bumps of the road and the sway of the carriage seemed to fade away, replaced by the beating of my heart. I didnt remember putting my free hand around his neck, but it was there somehow, twining through his hair. His arm moved from the back of the seat to my shoulders. I liked the feel of his arm around me. I felt enveloped, cared for. When he lifted his head from mine, my mind was spinning. I blinked at him. "Well, you certainly have a way with good-byes." - Author: Janette Rallison

Quotes About Smoke Weed

"All around the smell of that necro-smoke, that nether-weed. And up and at the hedonist impulse, rejoice, rejoice, in the disconnect my pretty things, fly monkeys, fly! The hip chick in the back, her legs uncrossed to let in air and let out pretention as the lights are down and its not necessary, nor should it be even with the lights up, all around faces, turned away and yet minds knowing, knowing there is a presence, a power about the room, the charge is different than it was before this small chick came in. Rejoice, simpatico, rejoice. Its her night. A night of the explosion. Pow—bang-ka-boom and yet its whispered and yet its heard through the walls at 3 A.M. by attentive ears and hands clenching in the frustration of being unsolicited by the owner of this spectacle. A womans sigh of ecstasy, and his tears at being not the cause." - Author: Benjamin R. Smith

Quotes About Runing

"Equality doesnt exist in nature and therefore can be established only by force. He who wants geographic equality has to dynamite mountains and fill up the valleys.

Quotes About Bridesmaids Diary

"Gardens come and go, but I find myself getting attached to certain perennials. My tulips are bridesmaids, with fat faces and good posture. Hollyhocks are long necked sisters. Daffodils are young girls running out of a white church, sun shining on their heads. Peonies are pink-haired ladies, so full and stooped you have to tie them up with string. And roses are nothing but (I hate to say it) bitches--pretty show-offs wholl draw blood if you dont handle them just right. -Vangie Galliard Nepper, From her "Garden Diary," March 1952" - Author: Michael Lee West

Quotes About Honest Woman

"Mr. Mancini had a singular talent for making me uncomfortable. He forced me to consider things Id rather not think about – the sex of my guitar, for instance. If I honestly wanted to put my hands on a woman, would that automatically mean I could play? Gretchens teacher never told her to think of her piano as a boy. Neither did Lisas flute teacher, though in that case the analogy was obvious. On the off chance that sexual desire was all it took, I steered clear of Lisas instrument, fearing that I might be labeled a prodigy." - Author: David Sedaris
