[Having Already Funneled Its Students To Their Respective Classrooms, The School's Front Hall Was Empty, Its Glass Showcase In The Same Neglected Spot Outside The Front Office. ... She Looked At It Briefly, Her Eyes Sweeping Over The Faces Of Students Whose Adult Trajectories Would Lead Them Either To Gloss Over These Moments Or To Spend Their Lives Pining For Their Return.]

"People are rarely what they seem, babe."

Jacob Tomsky Quotes

"I began to consider, upon the thought of "permanently" relocating, everything New York had made me. When I arrived, I was like a half-carved sculpture, my personality still and undefined image. But the city wears you down, chisels away at everything you dont need, streamlines your emotions and character until you are hard cut, fully defined, and perfect like a Rodin sculpture. That is something truly wonderful, the kind of self-crystallyzation not available in any other city. But then, if you stay too long, it keeps on wearing you down, chipping away at traits you cherish, character that youve earned. Stay forever, and it will grind you down to nothing."

Tomoko Yamashita Quotes

"Texting and phone calls, fireworks, blends, café au lait, and music. Yesterdays television. Work and beer. The neighbors dog, or those strange flowers, the way it smells at Maisen. Those ordinary things I talk about with you. With you... I want to talk about love with you."

"Polysyllables obfuscate a preponderant ignorance with so much more style and panache."

David Bentley Hart Quotes

"To speak of "God" properly, then—to use the word in a sense consonant with the teachings of orthodox Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Sikhism, Hinduism, Baháí, a great deal of antique paganism, and so forth—is to speak of the one infinite source of all that is: eternal, omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent, uncreated, uncaused, perfectly transcendent of all things and for that very reason absolutely immanent to all things. God so understood is not something posed over against the universe, in addition to it, nor is he the universe itself. He is not a "being," at least not in the way that a tree, a shoemaker, or a god is a being; he is not one more object in the inventory of things that are, or any sort of discrete object at all."

Quotes About Balay

"The minute you land in New Orleans, something wet and dark leaps on you and starts humping you like a swamp dog in heat, and the only way to get that aspect of New Orleans off you is to eat it off. That means beignets and crayfish bisque and jambalaya, it means shrimp remoulade, pecan pie, and red beans with rice, it means elegant pompano au papillote, funky file zherbes, and raw oysters by the dozen, it means grillades for breakfast, a po boy with chowchow at bedtime, and tubs of gumbo in between. It is not unusual for a visitor to the city to gain fifteen pounds in a week--yet the alternative is a whole lot worse. If you dont eat day and night, if you dont constantly funnel the indigenous flavors into your bloodstream, then the mystery beast will go right on humping you, and you will feel its sordid presence rubbing against you long after you have left town. In fact, like any sex offender, it can leave permanent psychological scars." - Author: Tom Robbins

Quotes About Think Different

"The church and the whorehouse arrived in the Far West simultaneously. And each would have been horrified to think it was a different facet of the same thing. But surely they were both intended to accomplish the same thing: the singing, the devotion, the poetry of the churches took a man out of his bleakness for a time, and so did the brothels." - Author: John Steinbeck

Quotes About Dispensable

"The analytical geometry of Descartes and the calculus of Newton and Leibniz have expanded into the marvelous mathematical method—more daring than anything that the history of philosophy records—of Lobachevsky and Riemann, Gauss and Sylvester. Indeed, mathematics, the indispensable tool of the sciences, defying the senses to follow its splendid flights, is demonstrating today, as it never has been demonstrated before, the supremacy of the pure reason." - Author: Nicholas Murray Butler

Quotes About Not Watching Tv

"I decided not to go Bryces house, where Rulfo and Monterroso were. When I stepped outside it started raining and that was like a warning to me. Nature was ordering me to turn back and I obeyed her docilely. So by eight at night I was already in bed, watching a detective movie on TV. Ease with which I change one plan for another. The gathering at Bryces house will never be repeated, it was probably one of those unique and unforgettable occasions. I hate the rain." - Author: Julio Ramón Ribeyro

Quotes About Good Workouts

"She had streaked blonde hair, long and straight, parted in the middle framing high cheek bones, an aquiline nose and beautiful deep blue eyes. She was young, around 30, tall and lithe with a good body, athletic, not skinny. She wore a sleeveless black dress that exposed her toned arms and shoulders, indicating regular workouts or yoga. There was a hint of vein running the length of her lean muscle. This girl stood out like an arabian in a corral full of draft horses." - Author: Nick Hahn
