John K Quotes

"Friendship is a special kind of love. More than endless, more than true. When friends parted ways no matter the distance, expect them to keep coming back to you."

Scott Stossel Quotes

"For the social phobic, any kind of performance—musical, sporting, public speaking—can be terrifying because failure will reveal the weakness and inadequacy within. This in turn means constantly projecting an image that feels false—an image of confidence, competence, even perfection."

Quotes About Ludolphian

"The Ludolphian number is fixed in eternity— not a digit out of place, all characters in their proper order, an endless sentence written to the end of the world by the division of the circles diameter into its circumference." - Author: Richard Preston

Quotes About Umbra

"El principal problema es que la mayoría de los comentaristas están acostumbrados a considerar a las escuelas espirituales como "sistemas", más o menos similares, y que dependen del dogma y el ritual: en especial de la repetición y la aplicación de presiones continuas y uniformes sobre sus seguidores.El camino sufi, excepto en formas degeneradas que no deben clasificarse como súficas, difiere totalmente de eso." - Author: Idries Shah

Quotes About Accusing Someone

"I would lie for hours by the window gazing down upon the black lake and up at the mountains silhouetted against the wan sky, with stars suspended above. Then a fearfully sweet, overpowering emotion would take hold of me—as though all the nighttime beauty looked at me accusingly, stars and mountain and lake longing for someone who understood the beauty and agony of their mute existence, who could express it for them, as though I were the one meant to do this and as though my true calling were to give expression to inarticulate nature in poems." - Author: Hermann Hesse

Quotes About Mentors In Life

"Dementors are among the foulest creatures that walk this earth. They infest the darkest, filthiest places, they glory in decay and despair, they drain peace, hope, and happiness out of the air around them. Even Muggles feel their presence, though they cant see them. Get too near a Dementor and every good feeling, every happy memory will be sucked out of you. If it can, the Dementor will feed on you long enough to reduce you to something like itself — soul-less and evil. Youll be left with nothing but the worst experiences of your life." - Author: J.K. Rowling

Quotes About Suez Canal

"Since 1849 I have studied incessantly, under all its aspects, a question which was already in my mind since 1832. I confess that my scheme is still a mere dream, and I do not shut my eyes to the fact that so long as I alone believe it to be possible, it is virtually impossible. ... The scheme in question is the cutting of a canal through the Isthmus of Suez. This has been thought of from the earliest historical times, and for that very reason is looked upon as impracticable. Geographical dictionaries inform us indeed that the project would have been executed long ago but for insurmountable obstacles. [On his inspiration for the Suez Canal.]" - Author: Ferdinand de Lesseps

Quotes About Mind And Body

"The role of the prophet was ambiguous in the eyes of some of his contemporaries. The indignation that flowed from him, the anger he displayed, even when extrinsic to his mind, became so intimate a part of his soul that those exposed to it could easily mistake it as his own antipathy rather than as sympathy with divine anger, and could assume that he had his own ax to grind, that he was giving vent to personal hostility. It seems that Jeremiah was accused of feeling delight in anticipating the disaster which he had announced in the name of the Lord. He who loved his people, whose life was dedicated to saving his people, was regarded as an enemy. Over and above the agony of sensing the imminent disaster, his soul was bruised by calumny. What protection was there against such backbiting? No one could look into his heart, but everybody was hurt by his words. Only the Lord knew the truth." - Author: Abraham Heschel

Quotes About Gabby

"Im not your boyfriend!" I snapped, trying to gently move her hands away from my body."How can you say that?" Sara asked in horror."Its shockingly effortless," I replied. "My vocal chords vibrate, and my mouth and tongue articulate. I can even do it without thinking." I had to remind myself to stay calm, and sarcasm was the best way to do that."When are you going to give me a key to your house so I dont have to knock like some guest?" Sara asked, coming at me again.I backed away. "How about never? Is never good for you?"Sara, undeterred, said, "Youre the reason I go to therapy on Fridays.""The plot thickens!" Gabby exclaimed for comedic relief." - Author: Laura Kreitzer
