Blythe Danner Quotes

"I think I have a lot of crazy layers."

Martha V Parravano Quotes

"Consider a small child sitting on his mothers lap while she reads him a picture book. The picture book opens to a width that effectively places the child at the center of a closed circle - that of mothers body, arms, and the picture book... That circle, so private and intimate, is a place apart form the demands and stresses of daily life, a sanctuary in and from which the child can explore the many worlds offered in picture books. Despite all of our societys technological advances, it still just takes one child, one book, and one reader, to create this unique space, to work this everyday magic."

Eric Snow Quotes

Paul Evdokimov Quotes

"The East is unfamiliar with those confessions, memoirs, and autobiographies so beloved in the West. There is a clear difference in tonality. Ones gaze never lingers on the suffering humanity of Christ, but penetrates behind the kenotic veil. To the Wests mysticism of the Cross and its veneration of the Sacred Heart corresponds the eastern mysticism of the sealed tomb, from which eternal life eternal wells up."

Quotes About Inner Strength And Courage

"Courage is a heart word. The root of the word courage is cor - the Latin word for heart. In one of its earliest forms, the word courage meant "To speak ones mind by telling all ones heart." Over time, this definition has changed, and today, we typically associate courage with heroic and brave deeds. But in my opinion, this definition fails to recognize the inner strength and level of commitment required for us to actually speak honestly and openly about who we are and about our experiences -- good and bad. Speaking from our hearts is what I think of as "ordinary courage." - Author: Brené Brown

Quotes About Transylvania

"I am glad that it is old and big. I myself am of an old family, and to live in a new house would kill me. A house cannot be made habitable in a day; and, after all, how few days go to make up a century. I rejoice also that there is a chapel of old times. We Transylvanian nobles love not to think that our bones may be amongst the common dead. I seek not gaiety nor mirth, not the bright voluptuousness of much sunshine and sparkling waters which please the young and gay. I am no longer young; and my heart, through wearing years of mourning over the dead, is not attuned to mirth. Moreover, the walls of my castle are broken; the shadows are many, and the wind breathes cold through the broken battlements and casements. I love the shade and the shadow, and would be alone with my thoughts when I may." - Author: Bram Stoker

Quotes About Quatrain

"In spite of all the progress we seem to have made, human emotions stay the same. Deep inside our hearts, we dont change very much. This poem was written two thousand years ago or more. Its from a time long before the quatrains and other formal styles youve learned in school were established. And yet, even today, we can understand the feelings of people from that time. You dont need education or scholarship for that. These feelings can be understood by anybody, I think." - Author: Kyōichi Katayama
