Rodica Ojog Brasoveanu Quotes

"Vîrsta ne schimbă atît de mult, uneori uiţi că ai fost copil, ai impresia că te-ai născut aşa, bătrîn, şi totuşi sînt unele fleacuri care-ţi rămîn adînc înrădăcinate. Clişee unde adultul dă mîna cu puştiul care trăgea la fit şi tocea peste vară la teorema lui Pitagora. De cînd mă ştiu, prima ninsoare m-a scos din minţi... Îmi venea să urlu de bucurie... Ca şi mirosul ăla special din martie. Un miros de verde, de pămînt..."

Marlene F Watson Quotes

"What is the black shadow? Its the running inner dialogue we have with ourselves all day long about our fears of being inferior as black people. It is our internalization of the white mans lie that blacks are inferior to whites -- the very lie that was the foundation of our ancestors enslavement. The black shadow is more than simply internalized racism; its also our complex feelings of fear and despair about being black, and consequently our longing to be less black."

Susan J Tweit Quotes

"Stories nurture our connection to place and to each other. They show us where we have been and where we can go. They remind us of how to be human, how to live alongside the other lives that animate this planet. ... When we lose stories, our understanding of the world is less rich, less true."

Morris LWest Quotes

When we went to the paint shop, she latched on to a color called, "Caribbean Pink." She said it made her feel like dancing a Spanish Flamenco. I personally thought it was the tackiest color I had ever seen, but I figured if it could lift Mays heart, it was good enough to live in. Lily Owens: That was awfully nice of you. August Boatwright: Well, I dont know. Some things in life, like the color of a house, dont really matter. But lifting someones heart? Now, that matters." - Author: Sue Monk Kidd

"Also: seriously, broomsticks? He was going to fly on, basically, a line segment? Wasnt that pretty much the single most unstable shape you could possibly find, short of attempting to hold on to a point marble? Whod selected that design for a flying device, out of all the possibilities? Harry had been hoping that it was just a figure of speech, but no, they were standing in front of what looked for all the world like ordinary wooden kitchen broomsticks. Had someone just gotten stuck on the idea of broomsticks and failed to consider anything else? It had to be. There was no way that the optimal designs for cleaning kitchens and flying would happen to coincide if you worked them out from scratch." - Author: Eliezer Yudkowsky
