Trey Smith Quotes

"Happiness is not created from things, friends, or even love. Happiness is like money; you have to have it to make it. People are attracted to happiness, to positivity. Keep that positive outlook on everything, and no one or no thing can make you feel otherwise."Every burden can become a blessing, just depends on how you look at it." This is my secret."

Beppe Severgnini Quotes

"Non si puo essere sempre moderni, impeccabili e aggiornati. Lultimo grido e interessante. Ma non occorre sempre gridare. Qualche volta e meglio abbassare la voce, e limitarsi a parlare."

Jackie French Quotes

Rodney Carrington Quotes

"You can talk about anything if you go about it the right way, which is never malicious."

Dean Koontz Quotes

"Language cant describe reality. Literature has no stable reference, no real meaning. Each readers interpretation is equally valid, more important than the authors intention. In fact, nothing in life has meaning. Reality is subjective. Values and truths are subjective. Life itself is a kind of illusion. Blah, blah, blah, lets have another scotch."

Roy Spencer Quotes

"Contrary to popular accounts, very few scientists in the world - possibly none - have a sufficiently thorough, big picture understanding of the climate system to be relied upon for a prediction of the magnitude of global warming. To the public, we all might seem like experts, but the vast majority of us work on only a small portion of the problem."

Marcela Paz Quotes

"Cuando me di cuenta que el mundo era como esa naranja me dieron unas ganas tremendas de comerme un pedazo del mundo. Sentía una sed terrible y los dientes se me salían de la boca por ir a darle un mordisco."

Quotes About Algis

"Jeigu būtų kur nors pasaulyje tokia vieta, kur tikrai vieną valandą per visus metus būtų galima gauti ką nors valgomo, jis kaip tik šią valandą, tarsi kokio įkvėpimo genamas, užsidėtų kepurę, išeitų, nueitų tiesiai lyg pagal kompasą ten, kur yra valgis, ir jį surastų. <...> Tai yra kažkokia mįslė, galima pamanyti, kad jis iš žemės iškasa. Didžiausias jo laimėjimas buvo keturios dėžės omarų." - Author: Erich Maria Remarque

Quotes About English Literature

"The high-school English teacher will be fulfilling his responsibility if he furnishes the student a guided opportunity, through the best writing of the past, to come, in time, to an understanding of the best writing of the present. He will teach literature, not social studies or little lessons in democracy or the customs of many lands. And if the student finds that this is not to his taste? Well, that is regrettable. Most regrettable. His taste should not be consulted; it is being formed." - Author: Flannery OConnor

Quotes About Herbal Remedies

"Just look at herbal remedies. Its essentially a throwback. Its saying you go to a plant and you mush it up and you stick it in the jar and you sell it and you eat it and its going to cure what ails you. And thats the kind of stuff that people believed in the early 19th century." - Author: Marcia Angell

Quotes About Bible Merciful God

"In that moment, I understand the way that the noblest yearning for duty and sacrifice can be mixed up with all that is savage and shameful, like in the Bible, where a just and merciful God tells you to kill everyone, kill the children, kill the livestock, kill John Polling, leave nothing alive to sully this pure and just world. Except when its all done you find out that wasnt really God after all, just some politician, or maybe it was God, but he taps you on the shoulder and says, No, dude, that isnt what I meant, and leaves you sitting in a Dairy Queen in Bothell with blood on your hands and no further orders..." - Author: Stuart Archer Cohen

Quotes About Beat

"I want to wake up ev­ery day I have left to the warmth of your lips on mine, the sound of your voice singing next to me, the feel of your fin­gers on my skin and your heart beat­ing mu­sic with mine." - Author: Christine Zolendz

Quotes About Covenants

"They say that to do injustice is, by nature, good; to suffer injustice, evil, but that the evil is greater than the good. And so when men have both done and suffered injustice and have had experience of both, not being able to avoid the one and obtain the other, they think that they had better agree among themselves to have neither; hence there arise laws and mutual covenants, and that which is ordained by law is termed by them lawful and just. This they affirm to be the origin and nature of justice, it is a mean or compromise, between the best of all, which is to do injustice and not be punished, and the worst of all, which is to suffer injustice without the power of retaliation, and justice, being at a middle point between the two, is tolerated not as a good, but as the lesser evil, and honored by reason of the inability of me to do injustice. For no man who is worthy to be called a man would ever submit to such an agreement if he were able to resist; he would be mad if he did." - Author: Plato
