"Life is easy. We make it hard."

John Abbott Quotes

"Every mans ability may be strengthened or increased by culture."

Susan Wiggs Quotes

"In all my novels, a sense of place - not just geographic but social - is a critical element. I have always been drawn to the novels of Edith Wharton, among others, where social dynamics are crucial. Whartons class consciousness fascinates me, and some of the tension in my books stems from that."

Riaad Moosa Quotes

"Europeans ridicule Muslim culture because they dont understand the wisdom behind it. Take swine flu for instance: all the sudden youve got Europeans scared of pigs - weve been saying that for years!"

George Nethercutt Quotes

"If I cant affect some change in six years, maybe Im in the wrong place."

Denise Levertov Quotes

"Rain-diamonds, this winter morning, embellish the tangle of unpruned pear-tree twigs; each solitaire, placed, it appears, with considered judgement, bears the light beneath the rifted clouds - the invisible shared out in endless abundance."

Martyn Bedford Quotes

"This time he was underwater, running, feet sinking deeper and deeper into the seabed. The surface was within reach if he raised his arms, but he couldnt get his head out of the water. He had to breathe. The compulsion to inhale was huge. But he couldnt, musnt. Still he ran, getting nowhere, each frantic step burying his feet in the wet sand until he was no longer able to lift them. Finally, with one great gulp, he opened his mouth, his lungs to the flood of seawater."

Nina Simone Quotes

"I think the rich are too rich and the poor are too poor. I dont think the black people are going to rise at all; I think most of them are going to die."

Jennifer DuBois Quotes

"Maybe this had been something like the colour blindness of the ancient Greeks, before words had ushered in vision - we do not see that which we have no language to understand."

Ravi Samuel Quotes

"Never take literally what is said out of anger! They are said just to hurt you – sometimes the opposite could be true!"

Quotes About Euclid Math

"Reductio ad absurdum, which Euclid loved so much, is one of a mathematicians finest weapons. It is a far finer gambit than any chess play: a chess player may offer the sacrifice of a pawn or even a piece, but a mathematician offers the game." - Author: G.H. Hardy

Quotes About Midnight

"4 is the worst time to wake up, as anyone with the normal human sensitivities will tell you. Far too late to make a cup of tea or go back to sleep. Far too early to get up and do something constructive. Theres nothing on television but arrogant evangelists and people selling acne solutions and motivational tapes. For me, base 12 philosophy aside, midnight is not the witching hour. 4:00 is." - Author: Toni Jordan

Quotes About Pretty Woman

"Jesus waited three days to come back to life. It was perfect! If he had only waited one day, a lot of people wouldnt have even heard he died. Theyd be all, "Hey Jesus, what up?" and Jesus would probably be like, "What up? I died yesterday!" and theyd be all, "Uh, you look pretty alive to me, dude..." and then Jesus would have to explain how he was resurrected, and how it was a miracle, and the duded be like "Uhh okay, whatever you say, bro..." And hes not gonna come back on a Saturday. Everybodys busy, doing chores, workin the loom, trimmin the beard, NO. He waited the perfect number of days, three. Plus its Sunday, so everyones in church already, and theyre all in there like "Oh no, Jesus is dead", and then BAM! He bursts in the back door, runnin up the aisle, everyones totally psyched, and FYI, thats when he invented the high five. Thats why we wait three days to call a woman, because thats how long Jesus wants us to wait.... True story." - Author: Barney Stinson

Quotes About Not Being Held Down

"I shrugged uncomfortably, leaning my head against hers, almost forgetting Mr. Gardners presence as Mo and I fell into that sort of exclusionary, near-telepathic best-friends communion. She knew that I would argue that I wasnt ashamed, but that I hadnt quite figured out how to truly mean it when I held my head up high. My entire life, people had been telling me to keep it down and stop being an embarrassment. So, I was still in that "fake it til you make it" stage, hoping genuine pride would come if I pretended confidence long enough. For now, I was relying on bravado and a complete lack of give-a-fuck to carry me through." - Author: Amelia C. Gormley
